Dr. Ballone, a professor of literature, is highly susceptible to suggestion. His mind snaps at the mere mention of a possibility or the sight of a picture. When he spotted a photograph of the Hindenburg on his classroom wall, he instantly thought he was a dirigible. Mrs. Ballone, who wants her husband back, brings him to a psychiatrist. During his therapy session, Dr. Ballone undergoes two more transformations: first into a mosquito and then into a can of aerosol deodorant. Unfortunately, the psychiatrist has an obsessive fear...of mosquitoes. Someone nearly dies.
