Laurie arrives believing herself to be the public speaker for the evening. She soon discovers there's more going on behind the scenes than she thought. When her good friend Jessie Titus, unexpectedly takes center stage to question her research and correct the details of her presentation, she finally must ask, "We're actually presenting together now, aren't we?"
In the end we learn why no one told Laurie there was a play going on around her. Along the way we take a hilarious romp back in time and meet the "rascals" associated with the Mound House.
