In the previous episode of our fictional saga, while recovering from his second heart attack, David decided to abandon underwear marketing in favor of a non-profit career. And after volunteering at Physicians for Single-Payer Health Care, he was offered a job there--although at half what he was earning as a marketer. He just had to convince his wife Susan.

And he was scared to try. After all, before heart attack two, Susan had still been urging him to "just get another marketing job. Trying to change careers will mean a big pay cut. We can't afford that."
