When Cleveland admires Lester's new hat, Lester mentions that his son Ernie bout it for him with the money he earned on his new job at the slaughterhouse. When Cleveland Jr. asks for a new bike, Cleveland believes it is time for him to learn some responsibility by earning the money himself. Attempts to find work at the slaughterhouse and the local paper fail to pan out. While Cleveland takes Jr. to the The Broken Stool to collect their thoughts. Cleveland Jr.'s compulsion to clean and organize kicks in when he sees the mess around him and he straightens things out in short order. After also impressing Stool bartender Gus with his business acumen, Jr. is hired. Jr. quickly kills Cleveland and the gangs buzz when he reveals that Gus never kept the books on their tab but now he is. Jr. takes things further by expanding the business by enforcing a dress code, replacing American Football with European and chases off the gang when he needs their table for paying customers. Attempts to find an alternate hangout fail so Cleveland decides to get Jr. fired by complaining about him being underage. Jr. recognized the work of his father and plots an elaborate revenge, trimming his mustache over a period of several nights, changing his shirts to a smaller size, reworking the heels on his shoes and replacing the gang's beer with non-alcoholic brew. When Cleveland finally loses that last of his mustache, he goes to see his doctor who tells him that he has Dipliatory Mustachio Alapecia, or DMA for short. The effect of the non-alcoholic beer cause the gang to break into a fight when they find they can't stand each other while sober. Jr. reveals his revenge while the gang are fighting and presents Dr. Fist who was in on the plot. They celebrate the end of the revenge with a round of drink shots. ..

Episode Goofs
Cleveland Junior sits at a table with 6 empty beer bottles but ...

... when he busts the table there are only 5 bottles.

And when he brings that tray (along with another) to Gus, there are only 3 beer bottles on the tray

When we see a close up shot of the box of crayons Gus puts on the bar, the one he grabs and the one he holds up when he says, “can you believe something so fun...”, are clearly not the same color.


The Peach crayon Cleveland Jr. is using changes color from a lighter color to a darker color after Gus says, “Does every bar know about this?” and Cleveland Jr. says “I don't know”

When the guys are at the Broken Stool after Cleveland gets his fake mustache, there are 16 bottles of beer in the scene, 12 bottles on the table (& 4 on the floor).
Gus brings 4 more, making 16 on the table, (20 in all).

However when the guys start to fight there are 13 bottles on the table

but when the shot widens, before they clear the table, there are 10 on the table.

The crayon piece that Cleveland slaps out of Junior's hand falls on the floor but has vanished when Gus suggests Junior work at the bar.
