The pop trio, The Lettermen, are performing in concert at the college which Herbert and Dobie attend. An ensuing mêlée on stage threatens the existence of the group as Tony, the lead singer, is kicked out. They, as a trio, have a contract with the college to perform this upcoming weekend, meaning that they could be sued if they cannot find a replacement third. Enter Dobie, who is surprised by their offer as that third as he has no musical talent, and as Dobie came as a representative for Maynard as that third. What Dobie and Maynard are unaware of, however, is that instead of a charismatic front man, which was the problem with Tony, what they want is a nobody - like a plate of warmed over yogurt - who fits Tony's costumes and can take orders. Regardless, Dobie has to decide if he will keep the job or be a stand-up guy and try to get Maynard the job, he who really wanted it. April Boyton, the beautiful music critic for the school paper, may play a factor in Dobie's decision. Written by
