Life is sure getting complicated for Bill Lawry (Robert Klein). His company is seling a new line of medical equipment and poor Bill has just one week to memorize 67 new products.

That afternoon, Bill hears people saying things like, "Wine mental eight van cattle renting jupiter." Everybody but Bill has a new vocabulary!
