Kerwin Drake is flabbergasted when his wife Molly lands on his doorstep. He had walked out on her some 22 years before and when he tried to locate her some years later to get a divorce, he couldn't find her. Drake is now a successful author and wants nothing to do with her. That same evening he's expecting a group friends for drinks and he agrees to let Molly spend the night, provided she agrees not to leave the guest room. Molly can't resist making an appearance and Drake introduces her as his cook. After his guests leaves he throws her out but she warns him that he had better visit the next evening. He's ready to buy her off, but Molly doesn't want anything to do with it. Drake's solution however doesn't quite work out. Written by garykmcd
