First camera shot: Al is reading bills with a napkin around his neck.

Synopsis: Kelly has to take a job at a TV station, but she moves from intern to a $1000-a-week "weather bunny", moving the current meteorologist to storm off. This leaves Kelly and her new manager Al with a $250,000 contract offer.

Guest cast:
Bill Palomino: Ben Lemon
Station Manager: Fran Montano

Al pays the bills:
Oh man we're broke, cha cha cha
Everybody flat broke, cha cha cha
Living in the gutter, cha cha cha
Early grave, cha cha cha
Alright now, everybody - shoot me!
