Storyline

Cliff mentions that he is taking a trip to the land of Paul Gaugin, namely Tahiti. How can he afford such a trip? He invested in US Savings Bonds through the post office's payroll savings plan. When Sam contemplates purchasing some savings bonds himself, Diane balks at the notion, believing that the stock market is the way to make money. Based on literature Sam has on hand and the knowledge that Cliff and Norm have on the issue, they try to convince Diane, Carla and Coach that bonds are not only a safe investment but a high yield and tax smart one.
