Stan lies to his family and tells them they're the only survivors of a nuclear attack, instead of admitting that he fell for a CIA drill and losing their trust. Roger sets up a phony wedding so that he can register for a new blender.
Francine discovers that every one of their family vacations have been artificially experienced in tanks filled with green goo. This makes her very angry and she demands a real vacation. When they finally go on a real vacation Francine thinks this vacation must be fake too since it seems too good to be true. She therefore causes the family to suffer the consequences. Simultaneously, Roger attempts to become the greatest actor who ever lived.
Francine agrees to be the surrogate mother for their gay neighbors' child. But when the child is born, Stan kidnaps her and plans to take her to Nebraska, where he can legally keep the child away from them.
