Hank grabs one propane tank too many and suffers a back injury on the job, but he is determined not to live off workman's comp, which to Hank, is welfare. So, Hank decides to try out yoga but discovers that the alternative healing method is a little too wacky for him. Determined to work, Hank heads back to work, but he pain is too great and he fills out the dreaded workman's comp form. Now, Hank must face the wrath of the insurance company who is determined that he is faking his injury.

Although several doctors confirm Hank's back problems, none of them have the ability to fix it. Reluctantly, Hank decides to give yoga one more chance and is amazed when it actually works. Now cured, the insurance company is determined to prove that Hank has been committing fraud all along, but Yogi Victor rescues Hank and attests to yoga's healing powers.

Peggy, having her own dilemma, is determined to keep the old Pink and White market from going out of business. Being a veteran bagger, she returns to the market to show how real, professional bagging is done. Unfortunately even her professional skills cannot keep the company in business, and she is forced to fold up her store apron for good. In the end, Hank is on the road to recovery and has a new fondness for yoga.
