Bud's rubdown
28 August 2019 | by JordanThomasHallSee all my reviews

In our final installment of the series, we find Lou tasked with bringing Mrs. Bronson (Renie Riano) back to the rooming house. She is preparing for a big benefit show. Driving erratically, Lou is pulled over by a motorcycle cop (Joe Devlin) who struggles to have his questions answered for a ticket. Mr. Fields talks Bud into fixing up the stage for Mrs. Bronson. Lou wants to audition for a part in the show. He begins singing "Jeannie with the Light Brown Hair" oblivious to Bud instructing the stage crew to raise the backdrop "higher" and other directions, to comical confusion. A tired Bud asks Lou to give him a rubdown with instructions from Fatless Frankie's "Body Beautiful Hour" radio program that's on air. Fatless Frankie suggests using witch hazel or rubbing alcohol. Lou asks Bud, who says, "use either." Lou mistakenly hears "use ether" and grabs that bottle from the shelf and applies. Bud is quickly out like a light and Lou walks out of the room to get skin lotion for the next step. Unknown to him, the program enters a commercial by "Squeak and Rattle Body Fender Company" on "how to paint your car at home". Lou walks back in for the first step of getting rough sandpaper and checking the body for rough spots, scratches, etc. to sand off. Lou hilariously keeps following instructions for hammering out bulges, painting the body, greasing the joints, etc.

The final season two episode returns to season one's laughs over plot format. It's probably the funniest of the season as a result.
