A gypsy tea room owner predicts Davy will fall in love within 24 hours and leave the group. Her plan is to team him up with her daughter Fern to enter Mr. Hack's Amateur Hour. The remaining three Monkees also enter: Peter as magician The Astonishing Pietro, Mike as folk singer Billy Roy Hodstetter and Micky as comedian/impressionist Locksley Mendoza.

Did You Know?
The cleavage-revealing outfit Fern wore in the scene where she and Davy meet was actually considered too risqué for the time, and the scene was censored visually. (And somewhat crudely, with Vaseline smeared over Fern's image in a few shots.) An uncensored version appeared in syndication during the 1970s, but wasn't part of the 1980s remastering. The uncensored episode finally reappeared in remastered form, during IFC's 2015 Monkees marathon. See more
When Micky, Peter, and Mike are looking for Davy, they question three extras and each points in a different direction. In the very next shot when we see Davy walking in a different part of town, all three extras are visible walking in the background. See more
