In this dual spoof of TV's Midnight Special and the movie Midnight Express, Bud Abbott (Eugene Levy) and Lou Costello (Tony Rosato) go to the airport, where Lou is framed for drug trafficking. Sent to a Turkish prison, Abbott and Costello introduce the musical group the Band in the manner of "Who's on First," while Wolfman Jack (Rick Moranis) and Anne Murray (Robin Duke) languish in their own jail cells. Elsewhere, Bob and Doug McKenzie (Moranis, Dave Thomas) expound upon how to bowl while "loaded." Ella Fitzgerald (Rosato) can't tell the difference between herself and Mamorex. And Bill Needle (Thomas) is left with only three seconds to deliver another hard-hitting editorial -- and next week he won't even get that much time!
