About Rama MageeshEdit
Played by character/animated voice actor Michael Bell, who was making his first of two appearances on the show, the lecherous Rama tries to make sexual advances on the seemingly but not yet brainwashed, but manipulated 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 Chrissy and together they design a plan to get Chrissy's savings back and to expose the Rama as a fraud; Jack is then able to confront 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.
