Newly unemployed Steve decides he doesn't really want to work, so he fritters away his days with the Bundys, visiting zoos and taking fishing trips. The strain this puts on Steve's relationship with Marcy who ends up going out with Al to a local bar where they swap stories about their failing marriages. But the conversation between Al and Marcy reaches its peak when Marcy has to decide whether to use the $25,000 reward she earned by foiling a bank robbery, sustaining a gunshot wound in the process, to buy a new car or to bail out Steve, who has been arrested for "rescuing" Bosco the tortoise from the local zoo.

At the conclusion, Steve is supposed to have killed a salt water Caribbean pygmy turtle by putting into Lake Michigan, a fresh water lake. First of all, there is no such animal as a Caribbean pygmy turtle. Second, turtles are reptiles and are not vulnerable the way a salt water fish placed in fresh water would be. Salt water turtles can survive in fresh water for short periods of time. See more
Hi, Mr. Bundy. Would you like to buy some chipmunk cookies?
No. Go away.
Oh come on. You can't look at cookies and not be hungry. I know your wife never cooks for you. My father told me that all you ever eat is bugs and dirt.
Well, you go home and tell your father that you have the mailman's eyes.
