Lucy finds out that the lollipop man has, aptly, been giving the kids lollipops every day. This prompts her to send the family on an enforced health kick, much to Lee's disdain. Lee wrestles hilariously with guilt when he is tasked with asking the elderly and lonely lollipop man to stop handing out treats.
