Stan comes by and says that he and Dorothy are being audited. Dorothy was always so careful with money; but Stan, as usual, took shortcuts and it lands them in hot water. All things considered, they don’t owe all that much, but neither has the money to pay the government.

Dorothy only has half the money for her part of the tax bill. She decides she has to sell some of her belongings. She goes to a pawn shop. She ends up pawning an expensive ring that Stan gave her on their 38th wedding anniversary. In one of the few touching Stan moments in the series, he finds out and buys the ring back for her. They’re able to pay the tax bill and put the incident behind them.
