A flower-extract plant owner is contending with an ever-growing avalanche of personal and professional disasters. An employee at the factory has just suffered an unfortunate accident on the assembly line, but little does the put-upon owner realize that things are about to get much worse. As the injured employee threatens to sue and it begins to look like his company will be bought out, the frazzled owner attempts to catch the culprit responsible for stealing wallets from the coat room and begins to suspect that his wife is sleeping with the gigolo he hired to seduce her.
Brad: I’ve never felt this way for anyone before… And I’ve been with a lot of chicks.
Suzie: Okay… Um… Look, Brad, I love my husband. I really do. And this was a mistake, I’m sorry. I don’t know what got into me. I was bored and frustrated and I was not feeling particularly pretty. We have to stop this. This has made me realize I really want to my marriage to work. Sorry.
Brad: This doesn’t mean that we can’t still see each other though, right?
Suzie: Yes, that’s exactly what it means.
Suzie: Um… Because of everything that I just said.
