Leslie Merkle, one of Rob's old army buddies (whom Rob fears wants a free script from him), calls to offer Rob a bit part in his latest project, an experimental movie on the life of pseudo-celebrity Rita Rivera, a European woman renowned for her many lovers. Laura's concern over Rob's appearance in love scenes abates when she learns that the camera itself will be Rita, looking upon her men. That's all well and good till Leslie decides upon using a live actress instead, a gorgeous Italian woman named Lucianna Mazetta. As reward (and safety) for still allowing him to be in the film, Rob invites Laura to the set, but her presence puts Rob off his game during the love scenes. It turns out, it's not Rob's biggest problem. Written by Huggo / revised by statmanjeff
