Dave Garver (Eastwood) is a womanizing overnight DJ who constantly gets calls from a woman asking him to play the song "Misty". He eventually meets the woman, named Evelyn (Creator/JessicaWalter), and has a one-night-stand with her. Evelyn insists on making herself part of Dave's life and, at first, Dave likes the attention. However, his ex-girlfriend, Tobie, moves back to town and Dave decides to patch things up. After he attempts to tell Evelyn that he's not interested, she responds by attempting suicide. Dave and Tobie get closer, but Evelyn isn't going to take it and tries any way she can to keep Dave to herself, even if it means getting rid of Tobie for good...
