In New York City, Mimi and Michael, in their thirties, are close friends after a brief and unsuccessful dating interlude years before. Michael has remained in love with Mimi over the years, but Mimi, who has just broken up with her long-time boyfriend Tommy, seems unwilling to try romance with Michael a second time. The spark between them is kindled again, however, during a weekend picnic outing, and Mimi, suddenly enthusiastic, proposes to Michael abruptly. The two marry immediately and head off on a honeymoon to Pennsylvania without ever having slept with each other.
