Rob, Buddy and Sally each receive a bonus paycheck for a sketch previously written that Alan is reusing for a comedy special. As it is an unexpected windfall, Rob wants to invest it in something he doesn't need but wants. Buddy convinces Rob and Sally to at least consider investing their bonuses on his Uncle Lou's discount shoe store. After seeing the store, meeting Uncle Lou and reviewing the store's financials, Rob thinks it's a good idea and talks a reluctant Laura into going along with the decision. Laura may regret saying yes after receiving horrible service from the store's salesman, Sid, who doesn't know she is Rob's wife. Although not wanting to be heavy-handed but feeling the need to protect his investment, Rob talks to Sid about the situation, but Sid, not taking any guff from a new investor, promptly quits. As Lou isn't around at the time, Rob and Buddy mind the store till his return. How much trouble can Rob and Buddy get into serving customers in a shoe store? Plenty. Written by
Did You Know?
What is with you and that shoe store?
It's a good business, and with a little extra money could be a great business. Come on. What have you got to lose?
Ya can't lose. If anything goes wrong, I can always be your hostage.
You're not worth that much.
