Ben sees an ad in the paper about raising pot-bellied pigs, breeding them, and selling the babies, and wants to do that as a job. He also meets Laura, Dr. Katz's receptionist, though when he offers to treat her to a cup of coffee, she goes by herself and asks that he reimburse her when she returns.
Ben is offended when Dr. Katz throws out "Bully", a prized stuffed animal of his, without asking. Later, while Dr. Katz plays guitar, Ben suggests he try out at a nearby club's open mic night. Ben takes Laura there as a "date", though Laura doesn't think of it as such. Dr. Katz sings an original song about family, which ends with a line about Bully. Realizing his mistake of throwing out Bully, Dr. Katz apologies to Ben in front of everyone.
Dr. Katz is informed by his doctor that his chances are good for having a massive heart attack. He strives to get in shape, with Julie's help: In exchange for fitness sessions, Julie wants Katz to teach her the guitar. Katz tries to convince Ben to take a health oath, but he's reluctant.
