Storyline

Shirley gets an invitation for a cocktail buffet party with businessmen in suits at the Hotel Pfister from Mrs. Babish... but Laverne reads the small print: RSVP (which Shirley says is French for "respond so very promptly.") Laverne sees $20.00 is the admission price. The girls are broke, as usual so they canoodle the name out of Lenny and Squiggy where they earn part time cash. The girls volunteer to be paid subjects for scientific experiments (guinea pigs) at Institute of Behavioral Sciences. But with Laverne in a sleep study and Shirley in a nutrition study, will the girls be in any shape to have fun at the party? Written by LA-Lawyer
