Plot: Harold informs Red that he is putting on a "fabulous '50s" weekend event. When he had had difficulty getting actual entertainers to perform, the main event has become an Elvis Presley impersonator contest. However, Harold has trouble getting Red to volunteer. As things come together for '50s event, he continues to plead with his uncle to be in the Elvis contest. When Red continues to decline, Harold tries to convince him by showing various lodge members in leather jackets and sunglasses doing very bad impressions of Elvis. Still, Red is unconvinced, until Harold bribes him with $100 to join the contest. In the end, everyone else backs out of the Elvis impersonator contest, so with his job on the line, Harold has no choice but to step in and do the impersonation himself. He returns to the lodge briefly, dressed as Elvis, and Red gives him a few pointers on how to be like Elvis and sends him on his way, while everyone else goes to the lodge meeting.
