Tom is forced to live up to an article he wrote on neighborliness when his new neighbors, Paul and Bunny Bright, descend on him bearing gifts. At first pleased with their friendliness, Tom is soon mildly irked as the Brights are under foot morning and night. However, he hesitates to say anything because of the couples' good-heartedness and Eddie's apparent fondness for them. Things finally come to a head when the Brights make it impossible for Tom to finish some office work he has taken home and announce they are cancelling a trip to spend more time with him and Eddie. Tom tells them as neighbors they are getting too close too fast. The Brights acknowledge this is a common occurrence with them as they are starved for friends. Tom tells them they should try being better friends with each other.
