An Offer They Can’t Refuse
When a group of boisterous Italian men arrive at the Ingleside, the staff wonders if they might be associated with the mafia. Meanwhile, Mel is out entertaining Carol’s parents who are visiting Palm Springs. Things get hectic when Mel checks in with the restaurant and discovers that the Italian guys have a “very special” guest arriving… Frank Sinatra himself.
Elizabeth Taylor, Mel’s first real celebrity guest, checks into the Ingleside Inn under the pseudonym “Mildred Peppercorn.” Wanting nothing more than to be left alone, she asks only that she not be disturbed. Of course, when word leaks out, Harry brings in a bunch of his friends to meet her. Now, Mel and his team have to figure out a way to get Liz off of the property and to a new location while the hordes of crowds clamor to catch a glimpse of her.
I Really Need This Job
Javier convinces Mel that the restaurant should stage “A Chorus Line” as a way to attract Frank Sinatra and other celebrities to Melvyn's. When Mel hires an event planner (Nicole Sullivan) to bring in A-List stars, she leads him along with false promises. After being alerted that that they do not have permission to put on the show, a cast of drag queens arrive and attempt to save the big night.
The Right Kind of People

Part of the Family
A bad review of Melvyn’s restaurant by Dave Atchison (Justin Tranter) sends Mel into a tailspin as he wonders aloud how it happened.

Meanwhile, Javier (Brian Jordan Alvarez) and Harry (Lance Bass) attend a party where Liberace is performing.
