Rob's brother Stacey, newly decommissioned from the army and staying with Rob and Laura for a few days while he looks for an apartment, comes bearing news. He is opening a nightclub in the city (in which Rob has invested) and is engaged. What's somewhat troubling about the latter news is that he has yet to meet his betrothed, with whom he has only corresponded via letters. What little information Rob and Laura can get out of Stacey is: her name is Julie, she lives in New York City, is a friend of an army buddy, hasn't actually met Stacey, and hasn't been asked to marry him yet. Stacey is hesitant to see or even telephone her as he fears his extreme shyness around women will make a bad impression. He thinks that having a practice date might help, namely with Sally (who agrees, looking upon it as a challenge). As Sally excruciatingly wrangles more information from Stacey about why he's nervous to meet Julie, the rest of the evening unfolds in a violent way neither Sally nor Stacey had ...
