Al buys a satellite dish from a discount store and he and Jefferson insist on installing it themselves. Kelly gives Bud an ultimanium to find new clients and stuff for her to do. Bud is turned down for a loan at every bank in Chicago. However, while Jefferson and Al are working on the dish, Bud turns on the TV (electrocuting Al) and finds a commercial advertising Vito, a guy who won't say no to any loan request. Bud decides to borrow money from Vito, whom, unbeknownst to Bud, is a local area mobster and loan shark. He uses the money to finance an exercise video staring Kelly and a Latino hunk named Rafael. But Kelly and Raphael get into a fight over who will star in the video, promoting them to storm off to their dressing rooms. Then Bud learns that Vito is dangerous and want's the video completed on time, by 5pm, or he'll die.
