Episode summaryEdit

In this episode a hair crisis is on. Desperate, Al and Steve put their heads together seeking solutions to impending baldness when Steve begins to notice his receding hairline, whereas Al doesn't care at all. After unsuccessfully trying some hair tonic for themselves, Steve joins a club for bald men called Bald American Dudes (BAD) and brings Al along with him. They hold their latest meeting at the shoe store. Steve fears he is losing his hair, and convinces Al that the same thing is happening to him. They attempt to reverse the condition with snake oil products, and later attend a support group meeting for bald men. The two learn the hard way that sometimes products are not as good as the commercial says, and Al decides that, comparatively at least, neither of them is bald.
