Synopsis Two female college roommates, Robin and Peggy, are forced to flee their apartment when their new third roommate turns out to be a raving lunatic. Peggy's boyfriend, Malcolm, who is the proud possessor of an impressive collection of annoying mannerisms, attempts a heroic rescue, but succeeds only in picking fights over everything from which restaurant to have lunch at to their seating positions on a bench. Robin has just thrown her backpack at Malcolm when Peggy's hitherto unknown second boyfriend, who believes that he is the reincarnation of an eleventh century Scottish warrior, shows up and challenges Malcolm to a duel. Robin persuades the two boyfriends that their duel should consist of seeing who can be the first to get rid of the psycho roommate. The women, left alone to ponder the true meaning of chivalry, settle down to lunch.

Themes college life, duel, lunch, reincarnation.
