Ophelia needs help with her latest romance. She met Horatio Bartholomew at a Lonely Hearts' Club, and Grandma Frump objects to him. Gomez and Morticia both think he's a phony, and try to convince Itt to marry Ophelia instead. She won't listen to them... (more), and prefers Grandmama's opinion because Grandmama likes him. Horatio claims to have studied at Heidelberg. Gomez decides to test Horation and fences with him, and loses. He also loses at cards to him. Morticia tries to prove he's a ladies' man by flirting with him, but he rejects her for Ophelia. Then Gomez discovers that Horatio is actually the second richest man in the world and not a phony after all. He tries to make up for his suspicions by teaching Horatio Zen yoga, but Horatio hates it. Ophelia decides that this means he's unsuitable and breaks up with him. Itt reappears, having decided he'd like to marry Ophelia, and she carries him off. Nobody is too surprised, however, when she breaks off that romance as well.
