RAJA GETS A JOB Gary (Scott Patterson) is ashamed to tell the family he's been fired from his job, so he tries to get everyone to cut costs. Not wanting to be a burden on the family, Raja (Adhir Kalyan) gets a job at a convenience store, much to Gary's delight. Justin (Dan Byrd) and his pals Craig (Alex Pimm) and Dooley (Adam Rose) are thrilled when they go to visit Raja at work and discover that the convenience store parking lot is the cool kids' hang-out. Everything is fine until Raja upsets the natural balance by refusing to sell liquor to kids with fake I.D. cards. Amy Pietz and Lindsey Shaw also star. Linda Mendoza directed the episode written by Robia Rashid (#104).
