Betty Hudson (Marla Rubinoff) is an overnight sensation, receiving gifts and telegrams from across the country while all Lester Guy (Ian Buchanan) receives is a cactus from Mr. Zoblotnick (Sydney Lassick). Sensing his meal ticket slipping away, Bud Budwaller (Miguel Ferrer) conspires with his assistant Nicole (Kim McGuire) and Lester to destroy Betty. Upon learning Mr. Zoblotnick has invited Betty to dinner that evening, the trio decide this is a perfect opportunity for a first strike. First impersonating Mr. Z's driver, Lester shakes Betty's confidence with warnings of Mr Z's lecherous intent. Then at the restaurant he impersonates a waiter to further disrupt the meal. Betty's flustered responses and Lester's bungling utterly charm Mr. Zoblotnick, reducing Lester to tears.
