Nadine Schitzle of Tarzana, California, has a problem: there's a sloth in the eucalyptus tree in her back yard and she's convinced it's her husband, Herman. Her neighbor calls Eye Witness News anchor woman Sally Sweet, who shows up with her crew, and suddenly the story is hot news. The animal shelter representative informs Nadine that an animal that big can't be kept within the city limits and a psychiatrist from social services arrives to determine her competency. Called before a judge, Nadine explains with unquestionable logic why she feels Herman has turned into a sloth and the judge, who says Nadine reminds him of his mother, rules for competency. Back home, Nadine celebrates with her minister and a friend, who also believes Herman is the sloth, and berates her neighbors for trying to have her committed so they could get her property. She gives Herman and all his belongings - except the Honda - to the San Diego Zoo.
