Storyline

It is hours before the debut of "The Lester Guy Show" and the cast and crew are frantically putting the final touches on the show, including rehearsing the dramatic centerpiece, the Kitchen Scene. All goes well in rehearsal but a comical head injury to Lester Guy (Ian Buchanan) during the live open, a sound board mishap that leads to every sound cue being wrong and a warped floorboard that topples a camera causing the broadcast to go out sideways threaten to doom the show. Betty Hudson (Marla Rubinoff) redeems the episode with an impromptu monologue and a sweet rendition of the song "The Bird In the Tree" accompanied by the tiny music box she always carries with her for luck. ZBC owner Mr. Zoblotnick calls the control room and joyously declares, "Wah hoov eh hut en uhr hoonds!" (We have a hit on our hands)
