While working, Rob meets a cellist Maude (Irving), who he begins dating, without mentioning his wife. She soon becomes pregnant, as well as his current wife and he ends up marrying Maude as well. To hide his bigamy, he uses work as an excuse to spend days with one woman and nights with another. The women eventually find out about each other as they go into labor at the same time and are at the same hospital, on the same floor.
