Synopsis:
Henrietta Brewster is obsessed with psychoanalysis and is driving

her husband Stephen crazy. She wakes him up at night to interpret his

dreams and hounds him to consult Dr. Russell, her mentor. Mabel,

Henrietta's sister, tells them of a dream in which she battles a hen

while some creature yells at her "Step, Hen! Step, Hen!" Two weeks

later, Stephen tells Henrietta that he has been seeing Dr. Russell and

he has interpreted his dreams as a desire to leave her. She is appalled

but insists that he leave her. Mabel returns from a session with Dr. Russell,

who has interpreted her dream as a suppressed desire for Stephen.

He and Mabel are astounded by their desires but concede to the insight

of the science which Henrietta defends. Henrietta then repudiates

psychoanalysis and she and Stephen are reconciled. [LOC]
