A group of slackers from Detroit have become guardians of a magic talisman. It allows them to see and communicate with ghosts. This episode mimics the John Lithgow segment in the Twilight Zone movie , where one of the slackers is aboard a plane and a ghost tells him that the plane will crash. Nobody will believe him, so he takes his sister hostage with a knife and forces his way into the cockpit. Hmm. One assumes this was filmed prior to 11th September 2001.
The Slackers end up at a diplomatic function in Washington DC. The lead singer goes home with a gorgeous waitress, while the other two try to help the ghost of the Prince of Moravia.
The three slackers each get a ghost this time.

The band get a gig at Princeton, so the babe gets to drop by and see her father [Ray Wise - Twin Peaks ]. He has a new fiance, but unfortunately her daughter is a ghost - and a bitchy cheerleader ghost at that.
Meanwhile, the guys have to cope with a mute ghost in a basement.
