First camera shot: Al and Peggy enter having an argument.

Synopsis: It's Al and Peg's 20th anniversary, and Peggy wants only one thing from Al... Meanwhile Kelly and Bud win the "My dinner with Anthrax" contest, which means a house party with the thrash-metal band, but there will be no party unless they get rid of mom and dad first. The answer: tricking them into taking a Florida "vacation" that turns out to be a time-share sales scam where the salesman won't leave them alone.

Guest cast:
Stan: Fred Willard
V.J.: Roger Rose

Guest stars:
Edd Byrnes
Anthrax: Joey Belladonna (vocalist, left the band in 1992), Frank Bello (bass), Charlie Benante (drums), Scott Ian (rhythm guitar) and Danny Spitz (lead guitar, voted out of the band in 1995)

General note: Anthrax eat Peggy's magic pack which appears for the first time in "A Taxing Problem" (0419). Anthrax have been MwC fans long before their appearance on the show: there is a 1989 poster of the band with Scott Ian wearing an MwC t-shirt.

Music: "In My World" by Anthrax (live), "Bad to the Bone" by George Thorogood and the Destroyers.

Influences: The episode title is inspired by the movie "My Dinner with Andre.
