Kelly becomes a brunette to do a public announcement and be taken seriously. Jefferson gets a nurse Barbie doll and Al gets the first issue of 'Big Uns' at an auction. They later realize the Barbie is worth $50,000. Jefferson needs Al to lie in bed next to Marcy while Jefferson tries to take Marcy's valuable Barbie doll and sell it off. Peg is worried that Al is missing.
Jefferson learns that the nurse Barbie doll he bought for Marcy on her birthday at an auction is worth a small fortune - $50,000. So he asks Al a big favor: sleep next to Marcy for the night, lie in bed next to her and take the doll as he then goes out to sell her family heirloom off. In return, Al gets to keep a prized first edition of the magazine "Big Uns" that he bought at the auction with Jefferson's money.
This is a parody of the 1993 rom-com "Sleepless in Seattle".
