Can a bickering odd couple in Manhattan become friends and maybe more? Owlish Felix is an unpublished writer who vents his frustration by reporting to the super that the woman in a neighboring flat takes the occasional payment for sex. She's Doris, more wildcat than pussycat, and when Felix's peeping-tom-tattle-tale routine gets her bounced from her apartment, she knocks at his door at 3 AM, aggressive and ticked off. They yell, lose another apartment, and pick up where they left off in a friend's flat and beyond. Dancing by the light of the moon seems unlikely for this owl and pussycat.
When she starts mixing business and pleasure she goes out of business

Hey, Felix, do you want to fool around?
No, I do NOT want to fool around.
Okay. Do you want a drink of water?
The original version of the film is said to have included some nude scenes with Barbara Streisand and the line "Do us a favor and just fuck off". Apparently she changed her mind about the nude scenes and they were cut and destroyed. The line with the f-word however stayed intact. Alas for the DVD release Columbia chose to remove that line of dialogue. See more
