"De plane, boss, de plane!" shouts Patoo (John Candy) as Ricardo Montalban (Eugene Levy) greets this week's guests on "Fantasy Island." In separate but interconnected segments, two members of the rock group Black Plasma (Dave Thomas, Joe Flaherty) are transformed into Bob Hope and Bing Crosby for an extended road trip; drab violinist Maria Schulman (Andrea Martin) is plunked in the middle of the movie Casablanca, which features practically everyone in Hollywood; and bored socialite Lee Vanderbill (Catherine O'Hara) becomes Ginger Rogers to guest actor Claude Tessier's Fred Astaire. So how does this all end up back in Kansas with Glenda the Good Witch (O'Hara)?
