Synopsis: When Al is mistaken for being 65, he takes revenge by using a senior citizen discount card and competing in the senior athletic games, in which he shows - and gets - no mercy. An announcer reads the following message at the end: "Bet you thought Al was going to let the old guy win. Well, then you haven't been paying attention for the last seven years. But, what we really wanted to do was to give a lesson to all you folks out there". Then Al has the last word: see the "dialogue triumph" below.
