Impervious to his wife's attempts to wake him, Herman dreams of being warned by his manager to increase his sales. As he contemplates his predicament, a mischievous poltergeist arrives to help him out. The ghost surveys the salesman's territory for potential customers and discovers five scantily-dressed prospects: one housewife, busy with a vacuum cleaner, nearly loses the brief towel she wears for housecleaning; another plays "bust beach ball" as she swims naked in her pool; a third nude wife prepares a birthday cake for her husband; the occupant of the fourth house has sex with her milkman; and the final prospect sips a drink in the nude, sensuously relishing the cherry. Wishing that he were human, the poltergeist rushes back to Herman to assure him that his neighborhood is full of good prospects.
