After a series of sordid tabloid scandals involving marine life, Troy McClure (whom you might remember from such films as The Muppets Go Medieval and P is for Psycho) needs some quick damage control. MacArthur Parker, Troy's agent, recommends he appear to in public as normal as possible. Enter Selma Bouvier, who is the perfect beard to cover up McClure's unsavory press. As Troy and Selma begin dating, the actor's public image rises considerably and he lands such highly coveted roles as The Human in the musical production of The Planet of the Apes. His star on the rise, Troy and Selma get married. Shortly after the nuptials, Selma begins to have second thoughts when Troy insists they have a baby for all the good publicity it will bring him. Selma ends the charade then and there and returns to her normal life. Troy, presumably, returns to the aquarium.
