Rhonda and Frank suspect Carmine is about to commit suicide, seeing that he's packed all his stuff, turned off the gas, and disconnected his phone. Carmine has actually decided that he's getting nowhere fast in Hollywood and is going to New York to try his luck on Broadway in the stage play "Hair". Rhonda and Frank lend him money, as he doesn't have quite enough to get there yet. He says his goodbyes to them and goes to tell Laverne. At Laverne's apartment he tells her his news and that he's 100 dollars short of funds. Laverne tells him that she can finally afford to buy a new bed, but instead offers to loan Carmine the $100 from her bed money. Eventually he takes it and says goodbye to her too. After his arrival in New York, Carmine goes to his audition - did he make it there?
