A Ischia si va per prendere il sole, fare il bagno, riposarsi e i giovanotti soprattutto per le donne. Nicola Molino ci va anche e soprattutto per una gara di pesca. Ma inizia a rovinare cappellini a una bella ragazza per scoprire poi che è francese ed ha quasi il suo stesso nome, Nicole Molino e che perdipiù l'albergo ha riservato ad ambedue la stessa camera. Carlo e Massimo hanno il problema di restituire una grossa somma di denaro persa a poker. E così tra una caccia al tesoro ed una ai pesci, tra la caccia al denaro e soprattutto quella alle donne, il tempo passa ed arriva l'ora di ripartire. Ma qualcosa di cambiato Ischia lascerà.
