Now that his visa had expired, Latka (Andy Kaufman) must marry an American girl in order to stay in the country. Elected to locate a suitable bride, Alex (Judd Hirsch) shows up with what can euphemistically be described as a "working girl." Although the subsequent wedding ceremony is a sham, it goes along so swimmingly, and with such a genuine outpouring of emotion, that Latka begins to believe it himself. This episode marks the first series appearance of burned-out hippie "Reverend Jim" Ignatowski (Christopher Lloyd), who would become a regular the following season.
