§ Synopsis The scene is the California Home for the Criminally Beautiful, an enlightened institution devoted to helping the Beautiful overcome their addiction to Themselves and, meanwhile, keeping them off the streets of Los Angeles, where they are a danger to themselves and others. Unfortunately, Foami, the super-competent secretary of the Home, has seen eyes looking at her from dark corners and underneath the cabinets. She has called in an exterminator, Carmine, of Carmine's Pest Management, to take care of the problem. Can Carmine save the day?
