Episode cast overview:
Dick Balduzzi ...


During a dinner break in a late working night, Lou takes Mary to his favorite hangout, an Irish bar called McCluskey's. The bar just isn't the same since the death of its owner, McCluskey. Since it's for sale and since Lou mentions that he's always dreamed of owning a bar, Mary convinces him that he should buy it. He's $1,500 short of the $10,000 down payment. He reluctantly accepts the offer of the only person who can make up the difference: Ted. Beyond Ted being a not so silent partner who wants to nickel and dime his way to a fortune, Lou finds that owning a bar isn't what he thought, and it just isn't pulling in the patrons like it used to. Lou quickly learns that what made McCluskey's successful was McCluskey, a real people person. So Lou tries to transform himself into a "McCluskey". But not being a McCluskey by nature, Lou goes slightly overboard. Written by Huggo
