Ray is overjoyed by the reaction he is getting from friends and family who received a personalized "Barone" toaster from him as a gift--even Debra's pretentious parents are thrilled with it. But, having heard nothing from his parents, Ray confronts them, the two people whose approval matters most, and is amazed beyond belief to hear what they did with theirs--and then what they resort to in order to get it back.
