When Hank suffers a back injury at work and none of his doctors can fix it because they think he's faking, he tries the healing powers of Yoga. At first, he finds it a little too wacky, but thanks to the help of Yogi Victor (voiced by Johnny Depp), he realizes that it actually works. Meanwhile, Hank's Insurance Company, the Insurance Company Woman, sets out to prove that his worker's compensation claim is false. Hank tried to get his boss to help him with his case; however, Buck refuses because his cowardliness and he has a bad criminal record. Hank goes to court and he proves his case. Yogi Victor proves his innocence much to the accuser's dismay. The court drops the charges; however, they order Hank to continue his Yoga sections until Yogi says his treatment is done. Meanwhile, Peggy fights to keep the old Pink & White market open after being reinstated as a champion bag-girl.
When Hank is feeling good about his back being better, the music on the soundtrack is an instrumental interlude from "Heard It In A Love Song" by the Marshall Tucker Band.
