It's Barrie's birthday and his personal assistant Janet is helping him get ready for the party. As they discuss getting older, marriage and love (or Janet's lack of it), it becomes clear that she would be quite content to settle down with Barrie. Unfortunately, Barrie is more interesting in men, but that doesn't stop him from booking them both on a cruise as a birthday present to himself.
