Plot Summary

A man and woman meet by chance at a romantic inn over dinner. Although both are married to others, they find themselves in the same bed the next morning questioning how this could have happened. They agree to meet on the same weekend each year. Originally a stage play, the two are seen changing, years apart, always in the same room in different scenes. Each of them always appears on schedule, but as time goes on each has some personal crisis that the other helps them through, often without both of them understanding what is going on. Written by John Vogel

However in the 1977 meeting, George brags that he saved the marriage between Doris and Harry "6 years ago", that is,1971, not 1972 which was the actual meeting in which George pretended to be a counseling priest.

Quotes George: I told you I was a married man with two children.
Doris: You're not?
George: I'm a married man with three children... I thought it would make me seem less married. All right, I didn't think it through, all right? There's been like a lead weight inside me all morning. I mean, denying little Debbie like that!
