We're at a football game and the crowd is doing the wave. Everyone, that is, except Harry and his friend. (Good for them.)
Harry tells his friend—that would be Jess, played by Bruno Kirby—that his wife Helen left him.
Yep, Harry's getting divorced.
It turns out the two were having some problems. Helen mentioned that she wanted a trial separation. They had barely agreed to that when the movers showed up at the door. They'd been booked for a week. So she had been planning this.
And as it turns out, it's all a lie. Helen fell in love with a tax attorney, like ya do, and she moved in with him.
