Peggy wants to add some personal touches to front yard when she realizes that the Hank has done most of the work. Hank is proud of the way that he has made their home look, and has trouble letting go when Peggy asks to give the garden a little Peggy pizzazz. Unfortunately, Peggy's green thumb is brown and she has trouble getting the garden to grow. However, when she spots a garden gnome at a local estate sale, she has found the perfect piece to make the garden her own. When Hank spots the gnome in the front yard (a large threat to his masculinity), he's horrified and becomes the laughingstock of his friends and wishes the gnome would find another residence. Looks like his wish is granted when Bobby accidentally shoots the gnome's ear off, and seeing that it's unfixable, Hank insists that it be thrown away. Peggy is distraught when her gnome is missing and calls the authorities to find the gnome napper. Hank knows he must come clean and tells her he threw it away, but when he does, she doesn't believe him and thinks he's covering for Bobby. She punishes Bobby for Hank's crime so Bobby and Hank go looking for another gnome to replace the old one. When they bring it home to Peggy, she is happy again and suspends Bobby's sentence. To Hank's delight, Peggy insists that the gnome be kept inside to prevent theft and his masculine garden is preserved.
