Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
Left in the lurch after the prop master unexpectedly quits the show, Artie (Rip Torn) is pressured by Hank (Jeffrey Tambor) to hire the sidekick's new squeeze. When Beverly (Penny Johnson) catches wind of the newly open position, she is prompted by her cousin Clyde (Paul Mooney) to demand that the job go to an African-American -- specifically Clyde himself. Disheartened by Larry's refusal to consider her proposal and feeling like a token minority among the staff, Beverly threatens to take a position as Laurence Fishburne's assistant. Troubled over the fact that he's losing a valuable employee, Larry attempts to keep Beverly with the show by hiring Clyde.
