About being divorced, being single again, and finding one's self. Linda in publishing; Richard, swinging stockbroker; and Mike, airline pilot, all divorced pool resources to rent a large, Manhattan apartment. But when Mike has to leave, Richard reluctantly invites old friend George in to share. George - dull, dreary, hen pecked about to be divorced by his rich, domineering wife Joyce - makes an unwise pass at Linda a judo pupil resulting in a fall giving him amnesia. All he remembers are the numbers in his life. Richard and Linda decide to let him stay on and they'll create for him a new, more palatable identity. In two months George is a new person. His memory could return anytime and Linda's fallen in love with her Galatea. She plans a second month anniversary party that's delightful until Joyce enters wanting George back until Mike returns wanting Linda, until George's memory returns until Richard sews up a plausibly happy ending.
