The normally outspoken and abrasive Louie (Danny DeVito) is cowed into silence (or at least, near-silence) at the prospect of meeting the parents of his girlfriend, Zena (Rhea Perlman). When time comes for Louie and Zena to go out to dinner with her folks, Louie slips a few bucks to Alex (Judd Hirsch) so that he will accompany him to the get-together -- and keep him from inserting his foot in his mouth. Not surprisingly, Louie manages to make an ass of himself anyway...but Zena's minister father (John C. Becher) does not react to this social disaster in the anticipated manner.
