Bruce and Prudence meet through a personals ad, but their date doesn’t go so well. He expresses emotions and likes to cry. Prudence doesn’t think men should cry ”unless something falls on them.” He has a male lover named Bob. ”I’m bisexual,” he tells her. She’s not sure; they talk at cross purposes some more, and then end up throwing water in each other’s faces.

You then see them talk about their meeting with their respective psychiatrists. Hers is a macho pig, Stuart, who once seduced her and keeps talking about his prowess. He refuses to say much, but occasionally bursts into inappropriate anger. His is a crazy, eccentric Charlotte, who stumbles over the simplest of words, who references the play ‘Equus’ as a good source of advice, and who interacts with her patients with the help of a stuffed Snoopy doll. Clearly the two therapists seem more troubled than their patients. So in order to decide who loves who, all these characters end up at a restaurant displaying an array of emotions.
