Episode Recap

Ophelia is still having problems getting a man. As Gomez observes: 'In the school of romance, I'm afraid she's just a drop-out'. Ophelia's latest beau, Montrose, has left her (the sixth this year), for the Peace Corps. Fester decides to help her by joining the Peace Corps to enable him to look for Montrose. When Fester takes the exam, the Peace Corps sends him home. The Family gets the news that the Peace Corps does not want Fester. They dare not break this news to Fester, who's keen on his plan, so they try to convince him to stay. Gomez pretends he's lost all his money and needs help, so Fester will stay. Morticia claims to need inspiration from Fester for her paintings, so he dresses as an angel and suspends himself from the roof. Ophelia is still pining for Montrose, who has quit the Corps and returns to her.
