I suppose jealousy has been a theme since the days of "My Friend Irma." This time around,Millie is jealous because her boyfriend George likes Maggie better. The whole thing begins when Maggie shares a cab with Mr. Hamilton, a regular passenger. Maggie thinks all men are animals. Millie has a date with George. Maggie goes to a movie. George treats Millie politely. Millie tries to get closer to him. They play Scrabble. Maggie comes home early. George makes a play for Maggie. Millie is jealous. She accuses Maggie of throwing herself at George. They start bickering. They end up fighting. First, their fight is verbal. Then, it becomes visual, involving hair dryers, vacuum cleaners, food preparation, and cleaning the dishes. Their fight carries over to a flight, where the passengers take sides, and the pilot and a third stewardess are caught in the middle of the mêlée. Millie comes in and packs. Maggie does the same. They fight over their possessions. Then they realize how much they mean to each other. George comes by and explains that Millie reminds him of his mother, while Maggie reminds him of a girl he knew from Hamburg. The fight on the plane is the best sequence.
