Woody buys Kelly an engagement ring. It is very expensive and he gets a job burying bodies at a graveyard. He goes four nights without sleep and is like a zombie. When Kelly finds out he is working 24 hours a day, she asks if that's a lot because she has never had a job. What transpires is great, including Cliff and Norm acting like idiots at the engagement party.
