Synopsis


Peggy gets caught up in a pyramid scheme and enlists Bill's help

Having greatly enjoyed her brief stint as a restaurateur, Peggy decides to switch gears from teaching and put her people skills to better use. She unwittingly joins a pyramid scheme when she signs up with a top sales rep for Metalife--a health food company.

Initially, she forces Hank and Luanne to become her sales team. However, their low turnover (Hank sold one health bar), combined with Peggy's dismal door-to-door sales, leaves Peggy feeling like a failure. Then Bill, who is always trying to impress Peggy, intercepts one of her shipments and sells the entire case on the military base. Peggy is so amazed that she makes Bill her new salesman. Her tough love tactics motivate Bill to scale new heights and he sells 10,000 units, getting him onto the Metalife Diamond Team. Peggy is a little jealous of Bill's success, but invites herself along when he wins a trip to the San Antonio Sales Conference.

At the conference, Peggy learns about the Nationals--the ultimate event for Metalife's elite sellers. Determined to get there, Peggy tells Bill he needs to double his efforts. Even before the conference ends, Bill has sold 1,000 units at the hotel. Overcome with glee, Peggy heaps on the praise and even gives Bill a little peck on the cheek. The unusual positive attention sends Bill into a rage and he quits!

Hank tells Peggy that the only way to get through to Bill is to be mean, because that's all he's ever known. So Peggy becomes a drill sergeant and sure enough, Bill snaps back into shape. Their re-energized team is primed for profit, but Peggy is having a hard time being so tough on Bill. He's so eager to please that he refuses to slow down even after he hurts himself lifting cases of Metalife. Unable to take advantage of him anymore, Peggy fires him. Bill, touched by her compassion, confesses that he thinks Metalife is a big scam. "Maybe," says Peggy, "but what a ride!"
