A nebbish of a morgue attendant gets shunted back to the night shift where he is shackled with an obnoxious neophyte partner who dreams of the "one great idea" for success. His life takes a bizarre turn when a prostitute neighbour complains about the loss of her pimp. His partner, upon hearing the situation, suggests that they fill that opening themselves using the morgue at night as their brothel. Against his better judgement, he gets talked into the idea, only to find that it's more than his boss that has objections to this bit of entrepreneurship.

52 minutes into the film, when Chuck is reading a computer screen showing his and Bill's investments for their prostitution "company," there are multiple spelling errors which aren't due to the screen's limitations. Chuck, being the fussy business type, would never let this happen. There's at least one typo on nine of the eleven lines displayed. Here they are: "CHUCK & BILLS INVESTMET SERVICE," "Inteest compouded monthl," "Paymnts at endof period," "Annual intrest rate," "Present vaue," "Future vale," "Monthly pament," "The interet rate is 1.46% per monh" and "And the tie period i 12 months."
