Maude receives the ashes of her long-suffering ex-husband, "Poor Albert," just as Walter's blowout Founder's Day sale approaches. As a result, she must debate whether to stay in Tuckahoe to support Walter during his sale, or drive to the mountains to fulfill Poor Albert's final request.


Maude receives a letter from her ex-husband Albert, who believes he's on death's doorstep. Ironically, shortly thereafter, Albert arrives on Maude's doorstep with a final request of her. Meanwhile, Founders Day has Walter advertising in the local newspaper and gearing up for a big sale.
