Ritchie Petrie (voice)
Glen Jameson
Mr. Boland


Rob and Laura lure a hunky hypnotist pal over to dinner as single bait for the ever-desperate Sally, along with Buddy and the Helpers. Millie begs him to mesmerize her, and he ends up putting most everyone in the living room under. Buddy pretends to be hypnotized into instantly yo-yoing from falling-down drunk to stone sober and back whenever bells ring, but it's Rob, watching intently from the kitchen, who becomes a blotto Jekyll/Hyde act (unbeknownst to anyone), so the Svengali doesn't take the rubber-legged comedy writer's spell off.
