  • Tod and Buz are working as Guest Liaisons at a motel just outside of Chicago. Boris Karloff, Lon Chaney Jr. and Peter Lorre meet there to discuss whether the old monster costumes they used in films will still scare a TV audience today. A group of Executive Secretaries meeting at the motel provide a handy "test group".

  • Tod and Buz have jobs as junior executives of convention liaison at the O'Hare Inn, adjacent to the airport of the same name. Buz believes he has the plum first assignment: head liaison to the Executive Secretaries of the Midwest convention, at which forty of the most beautiful young women of the region will be attending. However, Buz has eyes only for one, who he learns is young and not too bright Molly Cross. She recently quit her job and is sad about the situation. But it's not the job in and of itself about which she is sad... Meanwhile, Tod is stuck as liaison to the Society for the Preservation of the Gerenuks, their head, Mr. Retep, who looks a lot like Peter Lorre. When Messrs. Nol and Sirob, two of Retep's three colleagues arrive, Tod knows that they are indeed Lorre, Lon Chaney Jr. and Boris Karloff incognito, who he learns have come to discuss - more like debate - the different approaches for a new horror television show they are developing. Tod believes he can kill two birds with one stone - help the horror masters with testing out their concepts, while getting back at Buz for not letting him muscle in on half of the secretaries: test the horror masters' concepts on forty unsuspecting women.
