Octavio, who, like his brother Vic, is also a physician, was supposed to leave Cuba earlier that month, but Castro wouldn't allow him to go. Vic didn't tell Angie, because she hadn't seen her uncle since she was 12 years old.
For a surprise wedding anniversary present, George, after showing apprehension in doing so while he, Vic and Ernie were having beers at Thirsty's, reluctantly decided to help Vic rescue his brother Octavio out of Cuba, going on a what he told Angie was a fishing trip to the Florida Coast, where Vic has a fishing boat, which he usually leaves in dry dock and occasionally sails across Biscayune Bay just to impress his friends there.
George, Octavio, and Vic both share an equal hatred for Fidel Castro, of which George took advantage, pranking them by walking into the house while Vic and Octavio were trash-talking about Castro decked in a Castro-like costume, scaring them both.
