Plot Summary
School headmaster Brian Stimpson (John Cleese) is obsessed with timeliness, order and discipline. After meticulously preparing a speech for an education conference, Brian misses his train. With no one else to turn to, he asks young former student Laura Wisely (Sharon Maiden) for a ride. Laura, upset over a break-up, impulsively agrees to drive him in her parents' car -- which alarms her mother and father, who worry that she has run away with a married man and subsequently alert the police.
