So, Gavin MacLeod enjoyed a rather successful shipping career until his last vessel wrecked off the coast of Puerto Vallarta after his coked-up cruise director finally lost it and went berserker on everybody's ass. Gavin MacLeod's mangled remains were never recovered, but "a couple of Cousteau wannabes" located the wreck and dredged up Gavin MacLeod's signet ring, which is now on exhibit at The Maritime Museum in Andover. Bobby decides he must have that ring immediately, and even goes so far as to choke down his considerable pride to ask for Rufus's assistance in obtaining it. Rufus is way ahead of Bobby on that one, however, and is already on his way to Massachusetts, though he does have one question: Does Bobby intend to attempt some sort of hostage exchange? Because with the ring, he can ensnare the spirit of Crowley's son, right? But does he really think Crowley will swap Bobby's soul for Gavin's? "Mebbe." Well, that's cryptic.
Cobbler Interruptus! Again! Bobby's about to slice himself off a piece of that tasty dessert when his private cordless rings, and it's Dreary El Deano, calling to discuss the possibility that Sam Might Possibly Have Come Back Wrong For The Seventh Or Eighth Time Since This Godforsaken Show Began, but fortunately for the continued sanity of Bobby and, oh, everybody in the goddamned audience, Rufus bleeps in on Call Waiting, so Bobby has absolutely no choice but to switch over. Hooray! Unfortunately, Rufus has some good news, and Rufus has some bad news. The good news is, he managed to snag Gavin MacLeod's signet ring. The bad news is, he has half the Massachusetts State Police chasing after him at the moment. And if that's not a shout-out to Steven Williams's performance in The Blues Brothers, I don't know what the hell is. "Don't swallow the ring!" Bobby immediately warns, so Rufus swallows the ring. And chases it with a swig from his Big Gulp. Hee!
