Mrs. Strickland files for divorce, throwing Hank in the middle of a sex scandal...and a murder!
Hank's boss, Buck Strickland, gets caught in a compromising position with a hot, young employee named Debbie by none other than his wife, Liz. Liz files for divorce and immediately takes control of Strickland Propane, putting Hank's loyalties to the ultimate test.
Trying to protect his assets, Buck signs his popular barbecue restaurant, Sugarfoot's, over to Hank, much to Peggy's delight. Meanwhile, Liz gives Hank a promotion and a silver lighter engraved with Hank's initials. Hank feels torn between the Stricklands, but offers to make an "propane emergency" house call when Mrs. Strickland calls late one night. The "emergency" turns out to be Mrs. Strickland's overactive libido and sends Hank running from the house. The next day, Hank discovers a half-naked Debbie waiting for him in the back of his truck. Since he's her new boss, she wants to sleep with him. Between the stress of work and women throwing themselves at him, Hank starts smoking again!
After Liz lies to Buck and says she slept with Hank, Hank decides to put an end to the whole mess. He arranges for Liz and Buck to meet him separately at Sugarfoot's--with plans for a surprise reunion. They're surprised all right. But it's because of Peggy's handiwork. She's remodeled the restaurant--now called Peggy's Sugarfoot--into a cozy, country barbecue. While Liz and Buck reminisce about their beloved restaurant, Hank slips out to meet with Debbie at her apartment, which is across from the restaurant. He's hoping to dissuade her from lying to Peggy about the truck incident.
Moments later, Peggy hears a noise behind the restaurant. She investigates and discovers Debbie's lifeless body in the dumpster!
