When money becomes tighter than usual at the Bundy house, Peg signs Al up for a job as a make-up salesman, but when Peg hears the job's perks, she signs up for the job instead, and (seemingly) proves to be a better seller than Al.
When money becomes tighter than usual at the Bundy house, Peg signs Al up for a job as a cosmetics salesman, but when Peg hears the job's perks, she signs up for the job instead, and (seemingly) proves to be a better seller than Al. Al finally convinces Peggy to contribute to the household income but feels emasculated when Peggy starts bringing home huge "commish" checks from the job, earning more money than Al, himself. Even Al's new part-time job as a crew member at Burger Trek can't put him back in the lead as family breadwinner. Things go from bad to worse when Al finds the book containing the names of Peggy's customers, and reveals that Peg herslef is the one actually buying the products.

- The chute where the burgers are launched from is a distance away from the cashier area and would require The Captain to leave his station or someone else to bring it to him almost instantly. Yet, he receives Al's first messed up burger almost instantly and was still talking to the same customer the entire time
- It is obvious that the fryer and stove are non function props, even though it supposed a kitchen running at full capcity.
- After Al receives his first screwed up burger, he puts it down by one of the warming pots and the proceeds to talk with Butch and Shep. When The Captain comes in with the second screw up and hands it to Al, the first one somehow moves up by the vegetable station after taking about how he is not a bad guy.
