In this back-door pilot for the short-lived TV series 'Top of the Heap' and set in the inner city slums of Chicago, divorcee Charlie Verducci and his incredibly dumb, 19-year-old son, Vinnie, are superintendents of a run-down apartment building. Vinnie is recovering from a boxing match that he lost the other night while fending off come-ons from their local underage teen neighbor Mona. Feeling bored with their miserable lives, Charlie comes up with a "Verducci Master Plan": he and Vinnie secretly crash a formal, high society fund-raiser to meet some wealthy women for themselves hoping Vinnie will marry a debutante, while Charlie himself fends off come-ons from a rather large rich woman. They also pay a short visit Charlie's friend, Al Bundy, at the shoe store to exchange some facts of life about women, where Al is revealed to have lost his TV set in a bet due to Vinnie's poor boxing ability.

Times have passed us by. Women today don't understand that we need to fall asleep after sex. We have to.
[after a few minutes of dialogue
Wait, Charlie. I was thinking about what you said. I don't have to fall asleep after sex. I want to fall asleep after sex. I welcome the darkness.
