First camera shot: Al is swearing at somebody on the couch.

Synopsis: Marcy keeps nagging Jefferson to get a job, so he hires Bud as his agent hoping to get some quick money doing commercials. Bud ends up getting Jefferson and Kelly a gig where they play a couple in a coffee commercial. The spot catches on with the public and the coffee company decides to shoot more commercials, including one where they must kiss. This makes both Al and Marcy uncomfortable, so Bud convinces them that it's completely innocent... and invites them down to the set. When Al and Marcy arrive they find that the set-up is a little different than they expected - Jefferson and Kelly are to be kissing in bed together. Al and Marcy end up doing the commercial instead!
