Norman Baylor is back. This time his friend, Rusty Manslick, and his girlfriend Marie have arranged a blind date for Norman with Marie's friend and coworker, Justine. Plans have been made for a romantic double date dinner. Norman wants nothing more than for this evening to be perfect, yet it's his own "slip of the tongue" that sends the night spiraling into hilarious awkwardness. Before long, Rusty, Marie and Justine are all wondering if Norman has completely lost it or if he's in fact quite the catch. Lettuce Break Bread is a delicious comedy worth sinking your teeth into.
