Episode Summary

EDIT
Frank and Marvin
AIRED:
Betty is delighted when she learns that she is pregnant, but is worried about how she should break the news to Frank. Frank has once again lost his job, and if is to support a new addition to their family, he will need a good, secure job, so he applies for a job at a holiday camp as an entertainer. He can sing, dance, do a stand-up comedy routine, swim competently, has a First Aid certificate and can even be a swim instructor and lifegueard - at least that's what his CV states! Frank goes along to the interview, with his headline ventriloquist act, and his special "Mount Vesuvius." How will it all end? Not well if Frank has anything to do with it...moreless
