Next he tells the story of his Polish friend Bolus. Shep, Flick, Schwartz, Bruner, and Bolus would play cards, go to dances, and go scragging together. They were always together and new each others friends. In their senior year of high school word get back to Shep that Bolus is getting married - and no one knows to who!
