Al and Jefferson sneak out of a Jeffersons reunion performance to go to a new sports bar, where they end up in a bar fight.
Al bribes Kelly and Bud into posing as him and Jefferson to accompany Peg and Marcy at The Jeffersons "Moving On Up" Tour live, while they go to a newly opened sports bar. Al and Jefferson (as well as the entire bar) gets into a big fight over who was in the first Lite Beer commercial: Bubba Smith or Billy Martin!
Concering who was the first athlete to appear in the Lite Beer commercials of the 1970's and 1980's, Al and Jefferson, who get in a fight over the subject in the new sports bar in "Dances with Weezie" are both wrong. Although both of these athletes appeared in Lite Beer commercials in the 1970s, neither Billy Martin or Bubba Smith of them were first. That honor went to ex-New York Jets fullback Matt Snell in 1973.
