Episode Summary

EDIT
The Ethel Merman Story
AIRED:
Lori thinks that Nicky Krasnakov had a rival bumped off for threatening her, but she still can't resist the lure of potential big ratings and decides to sign the Russian mobster to a contract for miniseries rights to his life story. Rob is having a hard time dealing with Yolanda's Tourette's Syndrome-induced cursing on the set of Puerto Vallarta. He's also found out that the transvestite hooker that sent E.L. into a coma has surfaced and he sends Malcolm to take care of it. Malcolm finds out that Larry/Lola has found out about the Ethel Merman movie project and wants to audition for the lead role. Yolanda wants to try out for the same role as well, not to mention Bea Arthur, who brought the project to LGT's attention in the first place. Rob takes a meeting with his daughter, Audrey, who's been sent by her boyfriend Parker Meridien to rehash proposals that Rob has already rejected. Rob gets a call from his wife, Cecile, informing him that her body temperature is now perfect for conceiving a baby, but when he gets home to make love with her, he is interrupted on several fronts. The latest Mountainmen script from Kendall Gifford is thrown on Rob's doorstep from a passing car. Network standards and practices execs deem the script inflammatory and unfilmable. When FBI agents show up and ransack Rob's home trying to find clues as to Kendall's whereabouts, Rob gets angry and calls L.L. to tell her he's shutting down production of The Mountainmen.moreless
