Bob Fires the Kids
Bob worries he's depriving his children of their summer vacation by making them work at the restaurant, so he fires them.

Meanwhile, Bob hires Mickey the bank robber to help out at the restaurant, but soon regrets his decision.

Hugo, the loathsome health inspector who torments Bob, quits his job to become a nudist after discovering the town's new nude beach. His replacement, Tommy, seems nice enough until he blackmails the Belchers into letting him perform his terrible music at the restaurant, which drives all the customers away. Unable to tolerate it anymore, Bob decides upon the lesser of two evils and braves the nude beach (and bares... well, everything else) to find Hugo and bring him back.
