Ben wins $500 in a lottery scratch-off game and uses the money on an expensive dinner at a five star restaurant, with Dr. Katz and Laura as his guests. In the end, the restaurant bill ends up over his $500, forcing him to rely on Katz and Laura to pay the rest. Written by

Naturally this show's thirty-third episode should reference Larry Bird
(after whose Celtics number Jacky's 33 Bar is styled), and there's at least one: Ben begins the day with groceries from a store called "Larry's". (Bird worked in a grocery during his impoverished youth.) Also, the episode ends in a French restaurant in (presumably) Boston; Bird co-owned a restaurant called the "Boston Connection" in Terre Haute, a city with a French name. As a bonus, guest star Jim Gaffigan
is, like Larry Bird, from Indiana. See more
