Storyline

Dick is fascinated by Jennifer, his new office mate, and, when he's told it's not fair to Mary, tells Mary he feels they should see other people. To Dick's surprise, Mary doesn't object. However, after a while, Jennifer's passion for Moliere and rhyming starts to annoy Dick. In the meantime, Harry, Tommy and Sally want to combine the comforts of the living room and the kitchen and move the furniture around to create the 'Klivingtchen'.
