Episode Recap

Latka meets and begins dating Simka, a woman from his home country. Things are going well until they hit a roadblock: Simka is a "mountain person," one of the country's underclass that Latka has been taught to make fun of.

When they can't seem to work through the situation, they break up. Soon, Latka is miserable and wants Simka back, but it is too late. She has begun dating a handsome young doctor, and Simka gingerly turns Latka down when he asks if she wants to get back together.

Latka is left depressed, but has learned a lesson about prejudices.
