In an attempt to revive their sex life, Peggy (at Marcy's suggestion) takes Al to the Hop-On-In Motel. They discover a couple of familiar faces on the adult video channel: Steve and Marcy's. When Steve points out that Al and Peggy must have been video taped too, Al and Marcy want to break some legs, while Peggy and Steve decide to sue. In court, graphic details of the Bundys miserable sex life come out, which leave the jury so unimpressed that despite the verdict in their favor, they award the Bundys nothing... but they award the Rhoadses $10,000.
