When Florida gets arrested for leading a group of protesters outside of Borgan's Supermarket after she and the family got sick after eating dinner which the main course was some of the store's tainted roast beef, she and James decide to pay the market's manager, Mr. Gage (Lester Wilson) to tell him how they feel about getting food poisioning from the bad beef, and about all the other problems with the stores offerings.
Instead of James making good on his threat to Gage to stretch him out about the frozen foods section, they devise another idea to bring a little dinner gift for Gage to pose as if they were apologizing for their angry visit the other day, as still had some leftover roast beef from the other night. This time, they brought along a friend of theirs, Mr. Coggins, supposedly from the "Food Administration Office".
As they reveal the true nature of their return visit, and that the dinner gift they brought contained meat from the supermarket he tries to make an excuse not to eat the dinner, when Coggins prepares to eat it himself, to, as he says, "to give me something to report down at the Food Administration Office!" Gage abruptly stops him, and reluctantly takes a bite of the roast beef himself, as the Evanses get "revenge" on his duplicitousness in interacting with them, as well as the bad food items in the store!
After they leave the office, Warren tells them "I've got to get back to work... cause this "Food Administration Office" jive has made me late for my real job at the garage!" as they all had a big laugh in making Gage eat crow...or in his case... bad beef!
