Plot Summary

Harried Fran has one wish in life: a new set of pots and pans with mesh screens for lids--the better to keep dinner in the pot! Earl realizes that he can't afford to buy the simplest of pleasures for his family, which leads him to ask boss Richfield for a raise, with disastrous results. A chance meeting with the escaped "dinner" saves the day (and job) when dinner reappears as Earl's new supervisor at Wesayso Development Corp.
