A riot

She thinks he doesn't love her so she concocts a little plan to jump off a bridge as his car passes, so he'll save her and realise how much he loves her. Only when she sees his car and jumps, she's saved by his friend, who was just borrowing his car! She ends up in the friend's bed, wearing his pyjamas, and getting drunker on champagne, brandy, and caviar by the minute, which could lead for some very interesting consequences if the man's fiancee was to find out...
