Dan demands that Christine sleep with him after he saves her life with the Heimlich maneuver.
Dan saves Christine from choking in the cafeteria. Convinced that she owes him her life, Christine asks how she can repay him. His answer is simple: sleep with him.
When Christine (Markie Post) chokes on her lunch, Dan (John Larroquette) performs the Heimlich maneuver and saves her life. Much as Christine would like to repay Dan for his unaccustomed gallantry, the "price" he demands--namely, a night in bed--is a bit too high. Reluctantly, Christine says "Yes"...but Dan's hopes for an evening of purple passion are dashed by the unexpected appearance of a suicidal 38-year-old male virgin (Sandy Helberg)!
