Plot: Red, Dalton and Mike had found some heavy steel drainpipes by the side of the road, which proved too tempting to resist. Now they've strained themselves very badly from carrying them. However, Mike had gone to a new female chiropractor in town to get straightened out, and he urges Red and Dalton to go see her, too. Red is reluctant, but Dalton decides to go. Soon after, Dalton is as good as new again, and he succeeds in convincing Red to go see the chiropractor. In the end, Red is back to normal, but it turns out there is more to the chiropractor than meets the eye.

Famous People In Possum Lake History: Honest John Jonassen, former mayor of Possum Lake who promised big but delivered the opposite. At one point, he tried to get Possum Lake a bid for the 1986 Winter Olympics. He also sold timeshare deals in the south, but the guests turned out to be outlaws on the run. His biggest scam, however, was a pyramid scheme involving real pyramids. His downfall came when he tried to swim across Possum Lake, only to disappear and never be heard from again.
- The clock on Harold's office computer reads "1:00 PM".
- Red says that Honest John Jonassen's big scam was a pyramid scheme, using real pyramids. A pyramid scheme is a non-sustainable business model that involves promising participants payment or services, primarily for enrolling other people into the scheme, rather than supplying any real investment or sale of products or services to the public.
- Anne-Marie had asked Dalton to bring her, from the video store, Steel Magnolias and Beaches. Instead, however, he gets her two action-packed movies, Scarface and The Terminator.
- A Microsoft Excel spreadsheet (named "red"), running on either Windows 95 or Windows 98, is open on Harold's office computer when Red first walks in.
