Whimsical comedy co-written by Gelbart and Reiner. Dr Gerald Boyer (Garner) is a successful gynaecologist married to the lovely Beverley (Day), who takes her wifely duties very seriously indeed. When, after waxing lyrical at a dinner party about the glories of soap powder, she's given a job promoting the darn stuff, hubby gets the hump.
