Plot summaryEdit

When Dan's buddies show up with a great new job prospect for the old crew, Dan is confused: Should he continue on at the garage or make a bid on a huge construction job that would make him & his friends a lot of money? Meanwhile, Jackie gets hooked up to the Internet: her initial reluctance doesn't last and soon David needs to intervene.


  • The scene where this occurs is the episode's end, where Roseanne tells Dan that she figured out how rich people stay rich: lottery tickets
