Hanging out at the college, Dunky and Maynard, who were looking for a beauty pageant, instead stumble across the production of an opera in rehearsal. Despite not liking opera at all, Dunky falls in love at first sight with the opera's diva, Rosa Cesara, who lives up to the modern definition of diva. Rosa is dating the opera's director, the jealous Alfredo Farino. Due to an argument she has with Alfredo, Rosa makes a play for Dunky to make Alfredo jealous. If Alfredo is angry enough, his and Dunky's final encounter may take place on stage, where Dunky has the non-singing role of William Tell. Written by
