It's July and Peter mixes up their visitors schedules. The result is that they suddenly find themselves with a houseful of guests. They are an interesting lot: one fancies himself a handyman an sets about repairing anything in sight while his wife can't help bu calculate the cost of every meal; another is a lush whose wife is constantly ill; while a third couple are quintessential tourists who expect to be escorted everywhere. The Mayles soon develop a plan to get them all to move on. Peter is still after Rivière over the frozen truffles he sold him but all he wants to talk about is when Tony Havers might show up.
