Harriette and her co-workers get a new boss Mr. Benner (Mark Linn-Baker) who uses verbal abuse to try to make his employees work better. Soon, she confronts him and tells him unless he treats her and the other co-workers better, she quits. This causes Mr. Ferguson to instantly take action and he fires Mr. Benner for his verbal abuse. Harriette is soon rehired and has a VP/Head of Sales job. Meanwhile, Urkel wins a chance to win $1 million by making a half-court shot during the halftime portion of a Los Angeles Clippers game.
