Meanwhile, at the dance, Marcello (Jim Folly) and Luigi (Kenny Savoy) meet two women, both played by Stacy J. Negron-Sheckells, who joins the cast for the first time this week.

Olive meets a famous Indian magician Kutmar Kutmar (Joe Bev) who offers to give her a special honeymoon. 

Lefty and Olive are married by recently ordained Ranger Lorie (Lorie Kellogg) in the religion of "Dudeism" (a reference to the movie "The Big Lebowski").
