The urban legend of the "The Vanishing Lady" provides the basis for the story of "Cabin B-13." The episode begins with two newlyweds, Ann and Richard Brewster, as they board an oceanliner for their honeymoon. They have $10,000 in cash and plan to travel through Europe for three months. The bride has recently recovered from "brain fever", an archaic term for meningitis, and she is still weak and vulnerable.
Her husband Ricky takes their money to deposit in the purser's safe but then disappears. She tries to enlist help to find her lost husband, but no one believes that he really exists. She claims that they were booked into a cabin numbered B-13 but there is no such cabin. Her only help is from the ship's doctor.
