Maurice gives his blessing for the marriage of his son to Soon Ae but reneges upon learning that her father was his wartime foe, the Butcher of Yangdok. Ultimately Maurice capitulates and grants permission.

Helped by local Native Americans, Ed dubs The Prisoner of Zenda into Tlingit.

Ron was in the Marine corps. Shelly is one month pregnant and really digging it. Holling was once stranded on an island in Lake Whidbey and nearly died of hypothermia. The needs of Johnny, his unflagging penis, saved him. Holling, Shelly and Johnny have sex four times a day on average.
