Alan's wife Marion has gone away for a few days, so he is planning a quiet night in and a game of cards with workmates Barry and Carl. Barry has other ideas, however - he has plenty of booze and has invited some girls round. How is Alan to keep Marion from finding out, especially with his nosy mother-in-law Muriel living directly opposite? After a few too many drinks Alan falls and loses his memory, and suddenly he doesn't care anymore. Even when Marion arrives back and finds him in an innocent embrace with one of the girls he doesn't care - after all, he can't remember who she is!
