Maribeth just needs some help to finish a big project but ends up with much more than she expected! Sometimes more is less. This is the story of what happens when overachiever Maribeth tries to ease her work pressures and interviews potential assistants, one wackier than the other. Dismissively banishing each applicant, she starts getting threatening phone calls from her employer and becomes, in the end, as jobless and needy as the last candidate, who weeps at the suggestion of not getting hired. In disappointed resignation, they both share some butter pecan ice cream.
