A deaf couple checks into a motel very late at night. Upon moving into their assigned room, they go to bed.

In the middle of the night, the woman has a headache, so she goes into the bathroom for aspirin. She finds none, and then remembers that the bottle of aspirin is still in the car.

Afraid to go out alone at night, she awakens her husband and asks him to go get the aspirin from the car. The very groggy husband puts on his robe and toddles wearily outside. He finds the bottle of the aspirin in the car’s glove compartment, and gets ready to go back to the room when he realises something: he can’t remember which room was his!

He thinks and thinks and then gets an idea. He opens the car again and honks the steering wheel horn several times. Within a minute, all the motel’s windows light up.... except one window, and of course, he makes for the room with that window.
