When their cable TV goes out, Ray (Ray Romano) and the family play a game of "Scruples". Inevitably, an argument breaks out as to who is the most "honest" player in the family.

Jon Manfrellotti, here cast as the pivotal "cable guy," would later become a semi-regular on Everybody Loves Raymond in the role of Gianni.
