Run, Buddy, Run

Run, Buddy, Run: Season 1, Episode 5

Buddy has finally made it to Mexico. He stops at the ""Hotel de Puerto Grande""-- Puerto Grande is a small, poor town: nobody stays there, people only drive through on their way to Mexico City. Buddy is broke, but for $3 he gets a hotel room; the kindly proprietor Jose tells Buddy that for $3 he can stay until another guest needs his room-- in other words, as long as he likes. Jose's wife is just called Mama; they have a son Pepe around 12, and a very beautiful daughter Rosita in her early 20s. Buddy suggests that they can attract tourists by putting out fliers saying they have fiestas there. Buddy writes brochures and gets them printed; Pepe distributes them all over town. By sheer coincidence, Mr. D., Junior and Wendell are driving to a business meeting in Mexico City. Like others, they are driving through Puerto Grande. But since the meeting isn't for a couple of days, Junior suggests they check into the local hotel: he just saw a flier advertising their ""famous"" fiestas. Buddy
