After the first, long day of their road trip from New York to Hollywood, the Ricardos and the Mertzes pull into the greasy-spoon diner owned by one George Skinner (Olin Howlin). Suffering through a miserable and (for 1955!) very expensive meal, the two couples resume their trip -- only to be misled by a series of confusing road signs, ending up at a rundown motel...also owned by one George Skinner. As the night segues into day, it becomes painfully clear to the travelers that they'll never escape the clutches of the enterprising (and aptly named) George Skinner unless they're willing to open their pocketbooks -- very wide.
