A dejected Peter comes home early from Jane's party because only one person talked to him at the party, and the only thing that person told him was that he was dull and had no personality, which he begins to believe. After failed attempts by his siblings to cheer him up through trickery, Mike finally suggests that if Peter isn't happy with his current persona, that he should develop another one. Peter's initial attempts at developing that new personality are taken straight from characters he sees in old movies, to which his parents tell him that he isn't developing a new personality but stealing an old one. Peter finally settles on being the joke teller as his new personality. His parents allow him to hold a party to show off his new personality. The party does eventually cheer Peter up, but not quite in the way that Peter originally thought it would. Bobby and Cindy's safety campaign doesn't help Peter's cause at the party though.
