A former acquaintance, nerdy Vince Murphy, is the body chosen. But there's a mix-up: Vince isn't dead. Now Holly's sharing his body, and Vince is not at all pleased, though he soon comes to realize he wants to help her. Meanwhile, Holly realizes that never taking a second look at Vince when she had the chance was a big mistake.
