Plot summaryEdit

Jack has been feeling walked on by Furley, Dean Travers, and the girls lately, so, at the suggestion of Janet he sees a psychologist/life coach, Dr Prescott (Joel Brooks) from whom he takes an "assertiveness training course"!  It works too well, and Jack becomes aggressive and unbearable, causing a dispute with Mr. Furley to become an angry shouting (more like barking) match!

Jack and Mr. Furley, who decided to take the course out of being tired of getting pushed around by his brother Bart, and getting rejected by Lana, realize they have been taking the same course, and Jack chooses to go back to his old ways, but not to let people push him around.
