Through work, Mary meets Paul Arnell, to who she is attracted. She hopes that he will ask her out, which he eventually does. Mary readily accepts. The only problem is that Paul is the brother of Howard Arnell, who Mary once dated and who she broke up with because he was much too clingy. Howard ends up not being a topic of conversation between the two until they stop by Paul's parent's house. Mary had met them once when she and Howard dated. It becomes quite evident to Mary what Mr. and Mrs. Arnell think about her, Paul and Howard, both individually and collectively which makes her date with Paul a little awkward.
