Willum, an aspiring young architect has often told his friends about the debt he owes to a fellow ex-GI whom he has never met but who saved his life in Vietnam. Willum has written to Rick to say that, “I’ll do anything to repay your kindness.” So when Rick shows up unexpectedly, it’s a welcome meeting. But Rick is a bumbling oaf with no social sense, little intelligence, and less tact. Rick stays on and on, leading to one uproarious incident after another. The normally placid Willum starts contemplating violence, which, happily, is staved off by a surprising twist-ending of the play.
