Poor Al at the Dentist!, 30 May 2009
Author: ( from United States

Al has never been to the dentist. When he complains of a toothache, everybody including neighbor Marcy insists that he goes to the dentist. He can't even enjoy a drink of beer. He goes to the dentist and takes a balloon and stuffed animal to comfort him. The dental assistant played by Traci Lords who is also the dentist's girlfriend asks for the stuffed animal back. Al refuses. When the dentist played by Joe Flaherty gets a look at his mouth, he is stunned to see a lot of things. The dentist reassures him that he can do all of it. In fact, he gets his dental assistant to videotape Al's mouth so they know it's human. It's a great episode.
