Like many other Manhattan husbands, Richard Sherman sends his wife and son to the country for the summer, while he stays behind and revels in temporary bachelor freedom, a lifestyle that often causes him to overactive, over-vivid his imagination. On one particular summer, a delightfully unconventional, voluptuous blonde moved into the upstairs apartment. Upon returning home, Richard had the fortune of meeting the girl, who was in town to make a television commercial for a toothpaste. During the same evening, while proof reading a book by psychiatrist Dr. Brubaker, claiming that a significant proportion of men have extra-marital affairs in the seventh year of marriage, Richard narrowly missed being hit on the head by a tomato plant that had come crashing down from the apartment above. The girl apologised to Richard and in return he had invited her to come down for a drink. In the days that followed, Richard and the girl grew closer. His resolve to resist temptation in all of its many forms fuelled his fear that he had succumb to the 'Seven Year Itch'. The increasing fantasies had turned Richard into a paranoid wreck, and after a crazed confrontation with McKenzie, whom Helen has asked to drop by to pick up Ricky's canoe paddle, Richard final came to his senses and told the girl that she could stay at his air conditioned apartment for the rest of the summer as he was leaving the city.

Today, the apartment building is still there for fans to see with the only visual difference being the missing window blinds and the colour of the exterior wall.
