SYNOPSIS

When Jay Menlow breaks up with his fiancée, Cynthia, just before his wedding, he decides to use his honeymoon accomodations anyway.

Their arrival upsets the tropical hotel's management because guests are usually restricted to honeymooning couples. Ross, however, manages to date the hotel's only single girl, Lynn, the social director.
