Nona is unaware that her husband Gino owns the company for which she does telephone sales. He posed as a laborer during their courtship, fearful of being married for his money, and has yet to explain. When Gino's secretary Pam shows up with papers he forgot to sign, he introduces her as a co- worker seeking advice on a romantic problem. Generous Nona insists Pam bring her lover to dinner. Pam cons her chiropodist into coming on what he thinks is a house call. By the time the disastrous dinner party occurs, Nona's misguided gossip has caused a strike. She wonders why Gino won't join the picket lines and Gino inadvertently gives Nona the impression that Pam is his big romance. This comedy was written for Kaye Ballard.
