Lovers Ralph and Betty are planning a unique wedding ceremony by making "The Big Leap" - out of an airplane that's 12,000 feet in the air. "The Good Deal" is an excerpt from Neil Simon's BAREFOOT IN THE PARK, in which Paul and Corie Brader live in a tiny Greenwich Village flat and need a custom-made bed, so they try to obtain one wholesale by making said good deal with salesman Jack Lewis. And in "The Former Marriage", John Fillmore gets a distress call from Paul, his ex-wife Debbie's new husband, in reference to John's young daughter Julie marrying older man / humanities student Roger Crane.
