Morticia's old school chum Tiny Trivia arrives for a visit. She's into show-biz and very theatrical. Lurch falls for her, but, though she thinks he's cute, she has no time for love. Wednesday tries to teach Lurch modern dance to help him snare Trivia, but that's a failure. Uncle Fester takes him to the play room for a course on the femenine mystique, which merely discourages Lurch, and he decides to kill himself. Gomez tries to help by writing a suicide note, but Lurch changes his mind and decides to live. Morticia suggests serenading Trivia, this too ends in failure.
Grandmama brews a love potion and gives it to Trivia. The love potion works too well, and Trivia attacks Lurch, and then Gomez. The potion just makes her insatiable for all men. Fester tries to explain, but she goes for him next, and then Cousin Itt. Finally, the potion wears off, and she returns to normal. Lurch is glad to see her leave. Grandmama can't understand what went wrong, but will test the potion on herself next.
