After promising to make items for a church bake sale, Lois bumps into Joyce Kinney at the store. After gushing about meeting her, Joyce invites her to the studio to see them film the news and later takes her out for drinks. Joyce gets Lois to drunkenly admit she made a porno film in college called Quest for Fur and features it in a news story.
Lois is outraged and when confronts Joyce, she finds out it was in retaliation for a prank she pulled in High School. Lois confesses what happened to the family but finds herself ostracized at church. Depressed, Brian tells her to confront her problems head on. Lois arrives at church the following week and, comparing herself to Mary Magdalene, shows the film to the congregation, winning their approval.
