Lila; Barry Lane; Jim; Terry Jones; Mr. King
Synopsis
Salesclerk Lila gets her way with men by pretending to be sensitive and easily-hurt. She tries this on Jim when he says he has to move to New York temporarily on business, but he won’t change his plans and departs. Lila dates fellow worker Barry and is offended and hurt when he helps Terry with her ice skating routine. Barry, tired of her self-pity and refusing to be guilt-tripped any more, breaks up with Lila. Lila realises she didn’t think of how her sensitivity made others feel: she apologises to Barry and they reconcile.
