Edith Prickley (Andrea Martin) assumes the guise of Princess Carlotta to show the ladies at home how to give themselves a facial. Mr. Spock (Harold Ramis) and Dr. McCoy (Dave Thomas) are reunited as short-order cooks in the sidesplitting sitcom "Check Please." Hugh Betcha (Joe Flaherty) recalls how the philosopher Socrates (Ramis) dealt with hecklers. Hostess Katherine Timber (Catherine O'Hara) doesn't let director Antonio Luciani (Joe Flaherty) get a word in on her talk show "Enough About Me." And the main attraction is a tantalizing preview of "The Man Who Would Be King of the Popes" starring Peter O'Tule (Flaherty), Cathryn Hepburn (O'Hara), Richard Berton (John Candy), Richard Hariss (Thomas), and a special guest appearance by Victor Spynneti (Eugene Levy) -- or rather, by Victor Spynetti's eyebrows.
