Earl was enjoying watching Joy and Darnell have one of their arguments when all of sudden, he was reminded of No. 183 on this list, "Never took Joy's side." He remembered back when they were married that he'd never taken Joy's side in any argument or fight she got into.
Joy bought an entertainment center, but had to return it when it didn't fit inside the trailer. The Bargain Bag refused to take it back, so she decided to get even. She stole The Bargain Bag storage truck and decided to sell it for the amount of money she'd lost. When the plan went awry, she blamed Earl for screwing things up. So, now she wanted Earl to help her sell the stolen truck.
Earl and Joy had decided to check out the contents inside The Bargain Bag truck and discovered there was a delivery driver locked inside! Earl came up with the idea of releasing the truck driver blindfolded, but that quickly turned sour when the man ran into a tree and knocked himself out. Earl wanted to do the right thing and drop the guy off at the hospital.
When the delivery truck ran out of gas, Earl walked to the gas station to get more. When he returned, Randy was waiting. They found Joy chasing the delivery driver, who was now awake. While Earl and Joy gassed up the truck, Randy put the driver back in the cab. But the driver stole the truck and drove away. Randy, Joy, and Earl jumped into Joy's car and took off in hot pursuit.
Earl thought he was doing Joy a favor by stopping the car so she'd have to stop chasing the delivery truck. He was afraid that the cops would catch them if she hunted the deliveryman down. Earl's plan didn't really work. The deliveryman identified Joy anyway and she was sent to prison and charged with grand theft auto, kidnapping and assault.
