Season One

Frank enters the bar and pretends to buy everyone a drink since it's disability day, meaning he got his disability check. Kevin asks how he was still getting the checks. After talking about how to trick the people from the government Frank asks why the bar is packed. It was caused because people were laid off at the Chrysler plant. This piece of information causes Frank to start a rant about working and it is only stopped when he sees how little money his change is, due to the bar tab from the previous month.

Kevin gathers everyone and announces that The Alibi Room now has a new TV. Everybody puts a money in a fireman helmet to contribute for the money spent on it, when Frank enters the bar. While nobody's watching he pours himself a beer. Everyone is busy staring at the new TV when Eddie Jackson turns around to start a fight with Frank, because his son, Ian, was given oral sex by his daughter, Karen. Eddie then leaves and Frank sits in the middle of the room with a bleeding nose, drinking his beer, nobody really looking at him. Kevin is seen shutting down and re-opening the Alibi. A customer who had not made it out the previous night is still lying on the counter so he makes him a breakfast beer with an egg in it. Later that day Lip and Karen come over to find out where Frank is, since he has been missing and it is the last Friday in the month. Kevin asks around if anyone has seen him leave with someone and apparently he has left with Steve. When Frank returns to the Alibi after returning from Canada everybody sings the Canadian Anthem and waves small Canadian flags. Just after looking around he realizes Eddie is sitting next to him. He starts ranting about his family and the way he talks about his wife, Sheila, he makes Frank curious, and once Eddie starts crying Frank leaves the bar to stay with Sheila.

With the money he had gotten from Sheila, Frank goes to the Alibi, where he is found by Fiona, who tells him that he has to find Aunt Ginger or the social security checks from her will no longer be forwarded to him.

Kev comes to work early to talk about Kacey, the boy Debbie had kidnapped. He pours a beer and says he's feeling nostalgic, because he's seen a little boy in a Superman costume walking down the street.

Meanwhile Frank sits at the bar next to Eddie, hearing the girls squealing and getting drunk and he cannot get the picture of Karen out of his head. He gets quite uncomfortable and starts talking about Sheila and how hard to please she is, in a sexual way. Once the word is out that Kevin plans to propose a huge party starts at the Alibi. Later, when both Carol and Kevin are drunk, she talks about how much Veronica loves him. Carol passes out and Kevin pours himself another drink.

Fiona comes over to confront Kev about his marital status and the fact that Veronica still does not know about it. He is afraid and does not want to hurt her, but Fiona thinks the truth is the best. Meanwhile, Frank talks about how he is scared of having testicular cancer. Veronica comes over as well and talks about wedding and future plans, when Kevin tells her the truth. The following day Frank sits at the bar and talks about the fact that he could die any second and that is why he is wearing a tie to look good just in case he dies.

Fiona comes to the bar to tell Frank that two men are looking for him, because he owes them money. He tells her that he had no idea what was going to happen, but she does not listen and tells him to go to parents' night for Carl and not to run away from his problems. He does not agree with the school saying that Carl  misbehaves, and decides not to go, after ranting about the anti-made state of mind. Just as he is done saying he is not afraid of anyone the two men barge into the bar and he runs off. Fiona is worried about what to do with Carl, since the school wants a real parent. Kevin tries to cheer her up.

The two men want their money so they dunk Frank's head in the toilet and give him one day to get  what they ask for. Later, Frank sits at the bar and tries to think of ways to come up with the money when Fiona enters the place and confronts him about him signing up for credit cards under the names of his children. He blames the government and economy for their debt. The TV that was bought with the credit cards is at the bar.
