Episode Summary

Hurricane Al: A Tale of Key Largo
Insect Bob gets Space and Ungalow to stop at a shack where they encounter Tom, his wife, and their children. Insect Bob tells Space and Ungalow that he and Tom are about to make some serious money shrimp finishing. They end up at Shangri-La, a mansion that allows plastic surgery patients to recover undercover. Space and Ungalow quickly discover that no one's there to fish for shrimp. Instead, Insect Bob has a plan- Tom will sell his kidney to Al, a rich alcoholic who needs a second kidney so he can keep drinking. They end up meeting quite a few Shangri-La guests: Penelope (Al's girlfriend), Cubby, Al's right hand man, Jack Chudnow and his wife, Cynthia, Barbara, and Bobbie and her daughter Sue Ann. Some are patients that are at the clinic for rather interesting operations, while some are just there to support others that are having the operations. One interesting patient is known as "Mummy Man"- simply an unidentifiable man in a full body cast. While at Shangri-La the a hurricane hits, shutting off the power. Without any power, the kidney operation cannot take place. Tom is in desperate need of the money, but re-thinks his decision to give up his organ.moreless
