Default Fill me in on this episode, please

I was watching a program on Fox one time called T.V.'s Funniest Moments, and it showed a clip of an episode were Laverne and Shirley were laying on these tables all wrapped up from neck to ankle in this blue stuff and barefoot. They were trying to break into this locker that had like candy in it or something, but being wrapped up it made the situation rather diffucult for them, but it was pretty funny. Even trying to stand up on their feet made for a funny situation.

But why were they all wrapped up and barefoot like that? Why was it such a big deal to get into that locker? How did they get out of that situation? How'd they get in it? Shucks, just tell me the whole episode if you would.

Thanks.

It was #89 (Fat City Holiday) where Laverne and Shirley got jobs as weight-loss counselors. Since they didn't eat for two days, it was a big deal when the girls got tied up in blue stuff. They struggled to the locker to get food. I don't know how they got untied, but I do know how why they wanted food. That's one of MANY examples of physical comedy that Laverne & Shirley displayed during their 7 1/2 year history.

Okay, that's why they wanted in the locker, but what about the rest of the situation? How'd they get tied up and why and how'd they get free? Did they ever get abt of that candy? etc.

I don't know how they got free... it wasn't in the syndicated version at least... they were in "the wrap" because they were caught trying to buy food illegally on the black market by... guess who... Lenny and Squiggy. I love that episode, btw.

Default Okay, so...

I'm still a little in the dark here.
1) They get jobs as weight loss counselors- why?
2)they didn't eat for two days- why, was there simply no food, were they not allowed to eat or did they just not like the food available?
3)They were ilegally buying food on the black market? Who said it was illegal? Who caught them, and how'd they get in "the wrap" or whatever?
4)Did they ever get to eat anything, I mean how'd the episode end?

Geez, I'm just curious about the whole episode. I've surfed the web and found nothing. Isn't there somewhere where I can the detailed information I'm looking for? Nick-At-Nite isn't even airing Laverne and Shirley right now and I don't have TV Land.

I'll try to answer some of the questions, I haven't seen this episode in a while.

1. They get the job so they can go on vacation. They would get training for free, so they pounced on the offer.

2. There was this consuler there who was very strict and did not allow them to eat anything, even though this was against the 'resort's' standards
3. It was 'illegal' by the resorts standards--not by the law. Since they weren't supposed to be getting this food, they were put in the wrap.

4. They told the person who was at the head of the resort and she fired the woman who was being mean to them and the other people who went to the resort. As a reward, they're allowed to get the stuff out of the locker like they had wanted to.
