Storyline

Vern decides to get a tattoo in nearby Exeter which is a rough little town where the kids from Cardella go to booze and pickup women. He takes Howie along so Wes, Irene, Tom-Tom and Nora have to give up their date night to rescue them, or so they think. The frank discussions about sexuality and why young men go to a town like Exeter is explored with amazing realism. Humor and drama go hand in hand throughout the show. A flawless piece of writing. The last five minutes are a showcase for Randy Boone as he shows off his skills as both an actor and musician. Written by The Mystic Hedgehog
