As Jefferson's worries about getting old Marcy forces him into taking a job, Al tries to cure Peggy's shopping addiction.
Al cuts off Peggy from shopping by taking his credit card away from her, and also electrifying the phone so that she can't place any orders.

When Marcy objects, he gets a job as exercise coach at a new health club that Peggy wins a free membership pass at.

Marcy, becoming jealous at all the amorous female attention he's getting from others at the health club, forces him to resign. Meanwhile, Bud, who, along with Kelly, was enlisted by Gary, directs a commercial for Gary's Shoes with Kelly and Al, who appears as a shoesalesman, and forced Bud to hire him for the shoot!
