Bob Wiley has great work ethic and treats people well, but he suffers from multiple phobias which makes it difficult for him to leave his apartment and is divorced because his ex-wife likes Neil Diamond and he does not. Despite regular therapy, he makes little progress and his fears compel him to seek constant reassurance from his therapists. Exhausted by Bob’s high-maintenance conditions and invasions of personal boundaries, his current therapist refers him to the egotistical Dr. Leo Marvin, who believes his recently published book Baby Steps will make him a household name. Bob feels good about their initial session, but Dr. Marvin dismisses Bob in a rush to his long-standing, month-long family vacation. Unable to cope, Bob tracks Leo to Lake Winnipesaukee, New Hampshire.

Leo is annoyed, but sees Bob’s desperation and tells him to “take a vacation” from his problems. Bob seems to have made a breakthrough, but the next morning, he tells Leo that he will also be vacationing at Lake Winnipesaukee as a guest of the Guttmans, who hold a grudge against Leo for purchasing the lakeside home they had been saving for years to buy. Leo dismisses Bob’s attempts at friendship as he believes patients are beneath him, but Bob ingratiates himself with Leo’s family and relates to the problems of Leo’s kids, Anna and Sigmund “Siggy”, in contrast with their father’s clinical approach. Bob begins to enjoy life, going sailing with Anna and helping Sigmund dive, which Leo had been unsuccessfully trying for years. After Leo angrily pushes Bob into the lake, Leo’s wife Fay forces him to apologize, which he begrudgingly does.
