Expanded context:
@@773478 Kill-Joys. In Washington, OPA decided not to put a ceiling over mistletoe.
Talker. In Marianna, Fla., Mamie Ruth Odum, en route by bus to marry an Air Corps lieutenant in Tampa, met a private who told her: " Give me until tomorrow noon and I'll talk you into marrying me instead. " He did.
Perfectionist. In Philadelphia, Chester Zygmond was arrested for firing 35 revolver shots at the walls and ceiling of his bedroom, explained he was rehearsing for a suicide. Junction. In Memphis, Andrew Jackson Poulton

The above comes from CAE. I'd like to know what 'Give me' means and how 'until tomorrow noon' can go with such a short action as 'give'. Does it mean 'Give me 15 hours (for instance) and I'll talk...'?

Might I ask native English teachers to help me please? Thank you very much.

This 'give me' means: let me have the time (and your attention) until tomorrow at noon.
