Storyline

Stanley has been suffering from insomnia, and his fatigue begins to affect his job performance.

Dr. Schrager pinpoints the likely cause of his insomnia as Stanley's resentment over Arthur. But the cure he suggests -- that Stanley start being nice to Arthur -- could be worse than the disease.

Stanley and Arthur's forced friendship
1 December 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Stanley's (Dom DeLuise) insomnia has woken up the entire household. His best friend Bummy (Jack Knight) tells Stanley that the bus company they work for are thinking of demoting him to driving a bus. He talks Stanley into seeing a psychiatrist, Dr. Schrager (Elliott Reid). Dr. Schrager feels his problems stem from anger toward his wife who "may have grown unattractive, takes refuge in eating, is lazy and refuses to do any kind of work, and invents some mythical illness to justify it. Possibly dresses in a slovenly manner, maybe even slops about the house all day in a housecoat." Stanley is single, but the behaviors perfectly describe his brother-in-law Arthur (Wynn Irwin). Stanley brings Arthur with him next time upon he doctor's suggestion. He further says that in order for Stanley to get regular sleep he must be Arthur's friend.
