Al versus the Mouse!
28 May 2009 | by SylviastelSee all my reviews

Al has bigger problems. A mouse is eating his food and defecating in his bowling shoes. This is no ordinary mouse, Peggy states. She's right because no matter how Al tries to capture the mouse, he fails. He gets Steve Rhoades to help him in capturing the mouse. At first, Al's reaction and actions seem normal but they escalate over time to the point that he's wrecking their home. Peggy states "We like the mouse, Al." She begs for him to stop the madness and get an exterminator but Al won't pay for an exterminator until it's too late. Peggy has a funny story about having a mouse as a pet when she was a girl but she thought it was a dog. It's a funny episode.
