Plot: Harold has been accepted into college and soon moves into a house, which he shares with three girls. At first, he is ecstatic about this idea. But he soon learns that they have unusual behaviors that he is quite uncomfortable with, such as how they walk and speaking in high-pitch voices about not getting things done. Soon, however, Harold finds himself in love with another girl named Harriet, but he hasn't yet told her about his female roommates. Soon, however, they break up. It turns out that she doesn't care if Harold lives with three girls; she lives with four guys.
