**SPOILERS** Story about a good for nothing playboy Mario Robrioz, Robert Loggia, who hasn't done an honest days work in his entire life leaving it up to the woman he romances to pay his bills and support his playboy lifestyle. It's after coming back home to rest up after his playboy activities that Mario finds out to his shock and surprise that his outraged Mama, Mariam Goldina, who sold his magic ring that's been handed down from father to son for the last 10 generations. It that Robrioz Ring that guarantees the person who wears it a lifetime of fun and games without him never having to go to work for a living.

Going to the thrift store where Mama deposited or sold the ring Mario finds out that American tourist Lucy Bram, Julie Harris, has just bought it for a cool $135.00. Lucy together with her two girlfriends Ellen & Kate, Julie Adams & Virgina Gregg, are spending their time at a swanky hotel on the coast of the Gulf of Mexico and Mario makes up his mind to romance Lucy out of the ring. Even if he has to end up killing her in getting it! The fact that the ring is stuck on Lucy's finger gives Mario some problems that he didn't expect.

So determined is Mario to get the ring that he lowers himself to do some work for a change becoming Lucy Kate & Ellen's personal driver so he could finally get his hands on the elusive and slippery Robrioz Ring. It's during his attempt to both romance and steal Lucy's ring that Mario completely exposes himself as the greedy and self serving heel that he really is. Still Lucy sees something good in him even if her two friends Kate & Ellen don't. With them feeling that Mario is some kind of dangerous nut who should be locked up for his as well as the publics good.

***SPOILERS*** It's at the end of the episode that Mario finally sees the light in just how insane he is when Lucy, after getting it sawed off her finger by a local jeweler, finally give him the damn thing-the Robrioz Ring-back just to get the overbearing and annoying lover boy out of her hair. It's then that Mario realizes that all this BS about the Robrioz ring is just that BS and without a second thought drops it into the Gulf of Mexico as if it was the piece of junk, or cheap prize from a box of Cracker-Jack, that it really is.

In the movie Mario find his true calling in Lucy who despite his annoying and even dangerous conduct towards her still saw that there was some good in the guy if he just dropped this strange and crazy obsession of his. Lucy like Mario's Mama did something that over 400 years of doing nothing, like having a job, by the Robrioz men couldn't accomplish. Make Mario realize what a good for nothing schnorer or leach he is and finally make something of himself! But it took getting Mario detached for good from the Robrioz Ring that finally did the trick!
