While Sue was standing outside of Hot Dogs USA at the mall, a woman approached her to say she has what it takes to be a model. (Insert Sue’s patented excited scream here.) She just needs $500 to launch her runway career. Unfortunately, her family doesn’t even have enough money to pay the electric bill. It’s lights out at the Heck house. TV’s gone, too. Frankie says, “This is an outrage. If you’re gonna shut off the power, do it at the top of the hour before I’m already hooked on Conveyor Belt of Love.”
With the power out, everyone must blindly pull an item from the fridge and quickly shut the door to keep the cool air in. Axl gets peas and Mike grabs a beer. Brick is psyched when he snags the whipped cream. Frankie makes him a deal. If he gives up the whipped cream, he gets a bonus grab. Brick’s a gambling man by nature, so he decides to go for what’s behind refrigerator door number one. Too bad it’s sauerkraut.
