Storyline

Al decides to open a shoe emergency hot-line with help from Steve in the form of a $50,000 loan. But typically, Al's get-rich-quick scheme backfires when nobody phones in. When Marcy gives Al a second $50,000 loan to repay the original loan, the Bundys and the Rhoades join together in a downward spiral of failure when Al instead sinks the second $50,000 into his failing shoe hot-line, which results in Steve losing his job at the bank, Marcy getting demoted, and Al ending up being the loser as always.

Goofs

Steve makes a bank loan to Al but tells him to fill out the paperwork later. Seconds later, the bank president comes over to complain to Steve about his poor judgment in making the loan. However, Al never completed the paperwork - the bank president would not have even known the loan had been made, let alone that it would be bad. See more »

Quotes

Al: Hey Steve, I'm glad I caught you. I need a loan. See, I'm gonna buy my own toll line. Yeah, it'll be great. People will pay two bucks a pop just to talk to me. Now I know what you're thinking, that this is just another sex line. Well it isn't, this is something I know something about.

You Can't Stop Laughing! No, You can't!
1 June 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Whenever I see this episode, it always makes me laugh no matter what mood that I am in. In this episode, Al has another get rich scheme to have his own 976 line about shoe advice. "Dr. Shoe, I Don't know what to do?" the actress says in the commercial. Al needs to get a loan so he asks Steve who is in competition at the bank for a trip to two to Hawaii which he really wants so much that he willing to sacrifice another bad loan. When Al's commercial airs, nobody calls and Steve becomes catatonic and in a terrible nightmare. He has to face Marcy who takes over and offers to pay the bad loan with her bank loan. She has good credit and can handle a bad loan. It's the beginning of the end of Steve's run on the series but it's been a good one.
