Episode summaryEdit

Steve and Marcy hire a fortune teller for a birthday party.  The fortune teller predicts good things for Peg, Al, and Steve, but predicts death for Marcy.  When Marcy has to go to New York for a business trip, she believes that is how she will die. Because only good things were predicted for Al and Peggy, she convinces them to go on the trip (after agreeing to pay for first class tickets).  During the plane ride, thinking she is going to die anyway, she confronts her rude, abusive boss.
