Plot summaryEdit

Jack and Janet grow concerned when Chrissy falls under the spell of Rama Mageesh, a shady guru who seems more interested in Chrissy's figure (and her money) than in meditation. The guru has lots of lovely young followers, who wind up congregating at The Regal Beagle, trying to fleece the patrons of any loose change which they can get their hands on! The Rama's peace and tranquility message appeals to Chrissy, while Janet, Jack and the Ropers are suspicious of his overtures towards the naivete of Chrissy in judging his motives!

The lecherous Rama tries to make sexual advances on the seemingly but not yet brainwashed Chrissy when he visits the apartment, and manages to get her to fork over her savings, which was $300 before going to use the bathroom; when Jack and Janet confront her about the Rama, together they devise a plan to get Chrissy's savings back and to expose the Rama to her as a fraud;

Jack confronts the Rama, who visits the apartment for a second time, in order to be alone with Chrissy. While Janet and Chrissy are in the other room, and they overhear him admitting to Jack that not only is he a fraud, but that he does manipulate his followers. Chrissy, playing along with the plan, is able to get the Rama alone on the couch, and able to get close enough to him to get her money out of his purse before he leaves!
