Episode summaryEdit

In this episode, Peg develops another of her sure-fire, get-rich-quick schemes in the second episode of the fourth season. She believes she sees "The King" at the mall, and 'discovers' that Al has sweated a 'perfect' silhouette of Elvis onto a shirt. Other Elvis fans begin to make pilgrimages to the Bundy home, and Peg finally has the attention, and money, she craves.
