First camera shot: Peggy asking a question in the dark.

Synopsis: Vanna White plays a millionaire cosmetics mogul who hasn't met anyone like Al since the time they spent together at Polk High. Now she is offering to pay $500,000 to buy a chance to be with him again, but will Peggy agree to give up Al?

Guest cast:
Coco / Helen Granowitter: Vanna White (former "Wheel of Fortune" letter turner)
Phil: Kevin Schon
Customer: Jane Childerhose

Goofs: There was a Lakeside Mall sign in front of Al's store by mistake. Al actually works at the New Market Mall. The Lake Side Mall was his mall's competition in 0213. By the way, the same sign was also used as an inside joke in 0712 where Al was a mall Santa, so Al had to work at the mall he hated in 213. Also, when Coco eats cheese from Al's chin, Ed O'Neill is pissing himself with laughter.

Influences: Kelly's line "... adieu, which is French for 'A deer, a female deer'..." is inspired by the line "doe, a deer, a female deer" from the song "Do-Re-Mi" from the musical and movie "The Sound of Music".
