Summary Edit

Recently divorced sportswriter and sports radio personality Oscar Madison is about to hook up with his upstairs neighbor Casey when he is visited by his old college pal, Felix Unger. Felix's wife has just thrown him out and he also learns that she has hired a lawyer to serve him with divorce papers. The neurotic, fussy Felix later meets Casey's sister, the equally neurotic Emily, whose ex-husband left her for a man, and Oscar decides to plan a double date for the four of them.

After Felix insists he won't be getting over his ex anytime soon, the two watch a slide show from their married days, and Oscar gets emotional and realizes he also is not fully over his divorce.
