Artie Shaughnessy (W. James Wood) discusses the future with his girlfriend, Bunny Fingus (Amber Maser, right) while his wife Bananas (Justine Carroll) listens in.
The weird turns to the absurd as a collection of nuns visit Artie and Bunny, who have already been joined by Hollywood movie star Corinna Stroller (Julie Funk, seated on couch). The nuns are (left to right): Yumemi Shida, Renée Margaret Speltz and Kristin Edwards.
To jump start his musical career, Artie asks for help from friend and Hollywood producer Billy Einhorn (Perry Thrun) center, who is treated to a dinner cooked by Bunny.
Adding to the fun is Artie's son, Ronnie (Nathan Wilson) who has gone AWOL from the Marines to kill the Pope at Yankee Stadium.
In the end, Artie is released from his anxieties.
