Plot Edit

For some reason, Urkel becomes a human lightning rod and soon develops an intense fear of thunderstorms. Meanwhile, Laura and Myra both apply for sales clerk jobs at Ferguson's Department Store, but only one position is available. Both annoy each other as they audition for the job. Eventually, Mr. Waxman chooses Laura for the job and she believes her mother had something to do with his decision. Mr. Waxman explains that Harriette had nothing to do with his decision. He admits even though Myra had higher sales, she also got twice as many returned items because the customers perceive her as conceited and ignorant to their feelings with her lies. Waxman tells Laura that she cares about the customers' feelings and therefore she deserves the job.
