Cyril Goody is a lonesome character who lives alone in his home learning Spanish from his Conchetta Paloma records with his life-size blow-up doll. When his upset neighbor, Carol Potts, loses her boyfriend, Fred, to Mabel Tessler, she comes over looking for solace over the break-up, but Cyril hits on her with a bottle of champagne, telling her "it's like sherry." Unfortunately, as Cyril's doll springs a leak, it starts making noises that offend Miss Potts, who thinks they are sounds of derision toward her. She even calls Cyril "Cecil" as she keeps getting inebriated, and when he tries to kiss her, she tries to throw him out of his house. Meanwhile, he reveals his doll hidden under his sofa, and Miss Potts runs out, offended and disgusted, leaving Cyril to his inflatable girlfriend.
