  • A freshman in law school,who thinks he is intelligent and logical,wants to steal his roommate's girl,beautiful but not intelligent,at the cost of a reccoon coat.He teaches the girl logic in order to make her smart.But at last girl chooses his rommate.

    Polly prefers Petey because he has a raccoon coat.What she wants is not the logic fallacies,but hanppiness.Love dose not follow the principles of logic reasons.Love is an emotion that follows the feelings,which can not be controlled. And love is not a deal,not a raccoon coat.The ending is ironic.Sometimes girls do not want brilliant,gifted or educated husbands,but want husbands who are rich enough to provide all the things necessary for keeping up with fashion.But maybe Polly is right.Chance often passes quickly if you do not seize it.Today's society is very realistic.Although money does not account for the most important part,it is really indispensable.
