Synopsis:
Marge and her stage-struck best friend Lois arrive at Esther's Paradise Resort in the Catskills on Labor Day Weekend in 1960, on a vacation that was intended to be Marge's honeymoon - until the groom left her at the altar. Lois attempts to console Marge by setting her up with the resort's handsome, self-obsessed singer Del Delmonaco. But her plans backfire when Del mistakenly assumes that Marge's father can further his ambitions to become the next teen heartthrob on American Bandstand. Gazing forlornly at Marge from the wings is geekish cabana boy and aspiring songwriter Gabe.

When he isn't entertaining the guests with classic, but still comical Borscht Belt shtick, house comic Harvey secretly carries a torch for widowed resort owner Esther, who is more preoccupied trying to keep her resort open.
