A guy who writes the material for a famous comedian wants to be one himself but has a little stage fright and his boss doesn't like competition. A woman bound to a wheelchair has a pen pal who is a convict but when he stops writing she becomes despondent and would like to hear from him again. And when the man is being transported by plane, the plane develops mechanical trouble and lands on the island. The Marshall in charge of the man, is told by Roarke to uncuff him which he begrudgingly does. So the two pen pals meet. Written by
