Plot summaryEdit

Janet's father has worried so much about her being single that he has developed an ulcer. To allay his anxiety, Janet has told her parents that she is married - to Jack! But when her parents call from nearby to announce their surprise visit from Indiana, Janet realizes she is in big trouble. Before Jack has a chance to back out of the "marriage," Mr. and Mrs. Wood arrive, wedding present in hand, hinting about grandchildren. To compound the problem, Jack's date for the evening, gorgeous Shelley Green, is already en route by car from Oxnard. Next, Larry, then Furley drop by, and innocently almost blow Janet's cover. But matters really get out of hand when Cindy comes home, and their houseguests' presence forces the trio to make some very strange sleeping arrangements.
