In this Halloween episode, Al wishes he was dead, and is visited by the Grim Reaper with a very familiar face. He can escape death only if someone expresses he were alive or a desire to need him before the stroke of midnight. In a subplot, Marcy hosts a charity party in honor of rehabilitated female convicts. She tried hiring the Village People to perform, but they cancelled at the last minute, forcing her to conscript Jefferson, Peg, Kelly and Bud into impersonating the group. They are told to lip-synch, but the only Village People album Marcy owns is a single-track of their one-hit wonder YMCA. She plays it repeatedly, angering the guests.
On Halloween night, the Grim Reaper (in the form of a dark-haired, pasty-faced Peggy) finally answers Al's inadvertent long cried call for death and won't leave him until one of his family members say that they need him. Meanwhile, Marcy convinces Peggy, Bud, Kelly and Jefferson to impersonate the Village People at a party she's hosting honoring female spouse murderers.
