Synopsis: When Peggy uses up the monthly mortgage money to pay Seven's doctor bill, Al is forced to take a second job: bartending at a topless bar - where it's the bartender who's topless. Meanwhile, Peg starts banning the other Bundys from the house to protect Seven from their germs.

Recurring character cast:
Seven: Shane Sweet

Guest cast:
Gladys: Diane Delano
Patron #1: Sherlock Ganz
Woman: Laurel Ollstein

General note: As in "Pump Fiction" (0925), Marcy says she's a Republican. In "But I Didn't Shoot the Deputy" (0104) the Rhoades named their dog after the Democrat feminist Bella Abzug.

References: The episode title is inspired by the drink variation "on the rocks" (i.e. with ice).
