First camera shot: Peggy is coming down the stairs in green.

Synopsis: When a playmate comes into Al's store, he is eager to get home and look up her issue. But Al is a broken man when he finds that Peggy has sold his family heirloom (the meticulously cared-for collection of Playboy magazines), to buy a good-luck charm to win the lottery. Ed O'Neill plays the ghost of Al's father, who encourages him to get some self respect, so Al forces Peg to get his Playboy's back. Which she does by selling his car.

Guest cast:
Playmate: Brandi Brandt (Playboy centerfold for October, 1987)

Influences: The episode title is influenced by the movie "Desperately Seeking Susan" with Madonna. Spuds McKenzie was a dog advertising Bud Light beer at the end of the 1980s. "Just Say No" was an 1980s anti drug campaign slogan.
