He quickly enlists the help of Eddie and Waldo and the three friends disguise themselves as nuns to find Myra and get her to reconsider her joining the convent. Of course, she had gone there to visit her aunt Monica who’s the Reverend Mother but none of this comes out in the open until the guys are almost arrested.
