Storyline

Eddy is dating Pete,who was a recording engineer at Abbey Road and has some previously unreleased tapes of the Beatles. Eddy gives a party to showcase them - insulting Elton John at the same time - but the result is a disappointment since Patsy accidentally pressed the recording button whilst in the studio so that the Beatles' tracks have been completely wiped and instead all that can be heard is Eddy singing along to them,recorded over them.

Lost Beatles tapes, Edina's boyfriend, and a visit to Abbey Road
15 April 2007 | by (Lancaster, Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

"Schmoozin'" opens with Eddy dating a no-pressure boyfriend named Pete (Robert Lindsay.) Edina and Patsy have known Pete for many years, and Patsy isn't annoyed with Pete hanging around. In fact, Patsy is a little preoccupied since she's been informed that some of her old, softcore sex movies are being released on video. Patsy and Edina discuss the upcoming video releases of titles like, "Lady Chatterley Doesn't Live Here Anymore," and "Boldfinger," until Pete announces that he must leave. Edina introduces Pete to Saffy, but Mrs. M. recognizes Pete right away as the guy she once found in a closet "playing sardines" with Edina. Mrs. M. then questions Pete about the kind of work he does. Pete and Edina talk about his ownership of the Lost Beatles Tapes, which he's currently working on. Edina tells Bubble to make arrangements for the industry party that will debut the Lost Beatles Tapes, which she will be hosting at her home. She also tells Bubble to set up a meeting with Elton John. Edina and Patsy later go to the Abbey Road Studios, where Pete is working on remastering the Lost Beatles Tapes. They make fun of all the tourists doing the famed crosswalk before they enter the building. They meet with Pete inside, and are awestruck when they see the tapes. They also reminisce on hanging around the "Sergeant Pepper" studio, and we get to see a late 1960's flashback of Edina and Patsy (when Patsy was briefly a man) being engulfed in sex and drugs. Eddy and Patsy wander off, and Eddy takes a seat in front of a microphone. Eddy pretends she's having a recording session, and she sings her "walking down the road" song. Patsy goes to get another bottle of champagne, and returns to guide Eddy through a sung rendition of Max Ehrmann's "Desiderata." Pete, Edina, and Patsy exit Abbey Road Studios, and do the famous zebra crossing as The Fab Three. However, Edina doesn't want to be Ringo! The ladies return to Edina's, and Patsy mentions she hopes Edina will show her sexploitation movie, "Booberella," at the party. Elton John arrives the following day to meet with Edina. Fleur and Catriona try to organize the party, but Elton gets annoyed with their doltish rambling. Bubble makes conversation with Elton until Edina appears. Elton thought he was being invited to a party, but learns Edina actually wants him to perform during the function. He leaves very irate due to Edina's begging, and Bubbles insults. Finally, it's the night of the party, and the trailer for "Booberella" is being screened. Patsy feels humiliated when the party guests snicker and chuckle. Mrs. M. becomes inquisitive again, and wants to talk more about Pete's line of work. Edina calls the bouncer over to remove her mother from the party. Pete and Edina break away from the party, and he asks Edina if she'd come live with him. Patsy doesn't seem to be pleased to hear Pete and Edina plan to get married. The moment has arrived, and Pete begins to play the tapes. The music intro suddenly stops, and everyone hears Edina singing on the recording. It turns out the entire recording has been ruined! Patsy somehow had an accident while they were at the Abbey Road Studios, and the tape was then re-recorded with their pretend session. Needless to say the relationship between Pete and Edina is now over. However, all is not lost, and the next day finds Edina preparing to fly off to New York to do a recording with Yoko Ono.
