Rob (Dick Van Dyke), Laura (Mary Tyler Moore), Buddy (Morey Amsterdam), Pickles (Joan Shawlee), Sally (Rose Marie), and Mel (Richard Deacon) are invited to spend a weekend at the tourist lodge owned by Rob's old army buddy Sam Pomerantz (Henry Calvin). It so happens that the lodge has a floor show, and the star attraction is comic impressionist Danny Brewster (Lennie Weinrib). Alas, Rob accidentally incapacitates Danny while playing tennis with him. What to do? Why, it's simple: Rob and the gang will stage a lavish "song, dance, and snappy patter" show themselves! This is the episode that features the unforgettable Laurel and Hardy routine, with Dick Van Dyke as Stan and Henry Calvin as Ollie.
