Shotz Brewery lays off all of their bottlers and labellers for three weeks and put the truckers (Lenny and Squiggy) on overtime. The girls ask Carmine if he can find them a job; he finds them a job as taxi dancers: $0.10 per dance, at a place called Dance Land. If Laverne and Shirley can survive the homicidal Charmaine (and her thigh- holstered switch knife ), the vermin (their dancing partners) and assorted goofballs, they might may make a go of it... until Mr. DeFazio shows up with a few choice words.
