Bill and Laura have recently separated. They show up at the same dinner party with dates and come face-to-face in the bedroom where the coats are being stored. They immediately begin fighting. They go out to the party, but soon return, looking for their coats, which are now buried. The fight gets heated as they criticize each other's dates and lives as single people. The more they fight the more they realize that their lives apart have been miserable. In each other's arms, they lock the door and throw the coats off the bed.
