Announcer:And on a local note, tragedy was narrowly averted moments ago, when a sobbing woman and her two hysterical children were talked down from a ledge on the Sears Tower. It's believed to be the first family suicide attempt in Chicago history. The woman was quoted as sobbing: "Shoes! He sells shoes!"

Al does the right thing for a change!, 18 May 2009
Author: ( from United States

Steve Rhodes agrees to drive Al home after work. Al gets to visit the bank where he works after hours. As Steve says "Some people think of a Hawaiian sunset as heaven but I prefer a bank after hours." While he is getting ready to pack up, Al stops by the vault. They play card games. When something turns up missing at the bank, Steve suspects Al who keeps claiming that he didn't rob the bank much to the dismay of his family. When he finally gives in, the family comes up with their wish lists of things to buy with the money. Of course, the Bundys can never get rich because it would ruin the show's premise anyway. Steve worries about his job and his life if he goes to prison.
