Marty and the Pod travel to New York to consult for MetroCapital, a mega-bank that is looking for a plan to unscrupulously justify taking their year-end bonuses as the financial world around them burns. Unfortunately, Marty makes an enemy out of MetroCapital's number two guy Greg Norbert in the process because April, the stripper/call girl he attempts to pass off as his wife, has sex with Greg's sexually repressed wife. Their biggest business rivals -- run by his ex wife with whom he continues to have sex with sometimes -- are also offered the job. They manage to get hired by inventing a debt cancellation campaign which will have a big publicity impact but cost very little. Back at home, Marty gets some unwanted advice on how to raise his son Roscoe from Jeremiah Kaan, Marty's live-in father, when Roscoe decides to audition for the female lead in a school play.
