Full episode summaryEdit

After his two best friends find dates for themselves, Bud, who is desperately seeking Susan (or any girl that will date him, as he constantly gets rejected every time he propositions a girl!), resorts to getting a life-size mannequin to pose as his date for the evening! Meanwhile, Al comes up with a seeming stroke of genius, a million-dollar invention for a shoe salesmen's convention that looks desperate, called "Shoe Lights"; he takes the headlights and battery out of the family car and straps them onto Kelly's shoes!
