The boys prepare to harvest their dope crop, Barb proposes to Ricky and Jim Lahey goes crazy.

Plot Synopsis Edit


J-Roc, T and Detroit Velvet Smooth plan an operation to sell Ricky's dope to Snoop Dogg's promoter during a concert in town. Ricky has sent Cory and Trevor to steal a truck to haul it, but they grabbed a propane truck instead so it's a problem.

Act One Edit

The boys prepare to empty the truck of propane, and a minor distraction at Jim Lahey's lot allows them to move the vehicle. Afterwards, Barb visits Lahey in their tent trailer to ask him if he still has her old engagement ring.

Ricky's upset that his dad won't drive the truck for him today because Ray is concerned about getting caught scamming disability. Instead, Ricky decides to steal Ray's old plates to attach to the propane truck and have Bubbles drive instead.

Barb talks to Julian and asks to live rent-free in the park after they purchase the park. Julian reluctantly agrees that "Maybe" that would be allowed. She says that she is making a secret announcement soon. Bubbles suspects that Barb and Ricky might be banging each other based on his observations.

Lahey wants to 'break up' with Randy and propose to Barb, because he thinks she is hinting at getting back together. Randy isn't interested in going back to being a side-interest and makes this clear to Jim.

Act Two Edit

Bubbles takes a truck-driving test but unfortunately fails due to his bad vision: "You can't see jack shit. JACK SHIT!". Lahey primps himself for Barb, and Randy sulks. Lahey tells the camera his motivations for re-marrying Barb: he is hoping for more power in order to finally defeat Ricky.

Bubbles is upset with himself for his bad vision, and Ricky lies to Julian about Bubbles having failed so the plan can proceed. Drunk, Lahey proposes to Barb, and she tells him she is planning to marry Ricky instead. She gives him two weeks notice to leave the park.

Ricky tests the dope plants and the crop is ready to go. It's the best crop he's ever grown. Lahey tells Randy they were both just fired, but Randy tells him off and heads off in his Smokie outfit. Barb proposes to Ricky and being very high, Ricky accepts.

Bubbles and Julian sell off the stolen propane, and Ricky crashes the shitmobile onto the scene. He says his brake line has been cut but Julian replies that Ricky's just high and paranoid. Sarah shows up announcing that she is marrying Cory and Trevor. During the discussion, Cory spills the beans to everyone present about Barb proposing to Ricky.

Act Three Edit

Bubbles and Julian confront Ricky about marrying Barb and Ricky seems confused. Julian gives him a reality check and suggests he put Barb off. Ricky leaves to think it over but while he's out walking, a net is thrown over him from off-camera when he bends down to pick up some smokes left by the side of the road. Angrily he frees himself.

Lahey arrives trying to buy propane from Julian, and is falling over himself, wasted, cursing Ricky all the while before leaving. Julian spots a police helicopter flying around and starts to worry. While barbecuing, Ricky is mildly electrocuted by the grill and begins to suspect that someone is trying to kill him.

Later that night, Julian and Bubbles hear on the news that police have found one of their pot fields, and realize that the heat is on. They must harvest the rest before it's discovered. They leave to pick up Ricky who is in Barb's trailer, but when they arrive, it explodes and catches on fire.

References Edit

In the opener, J-Roc gets excited about 20 grand and shouts "Bammm," which he is promptly told to lose because it's "whack". This terrible shout is later used by Philadelphia Collins and his sons.

Lahey shows he is not only a decent seamstress, but can tie a full Windsor knot (during the shit-waves rant below).

Rickyisms Edit

"Basically, it's peaches and cake..." (piece of cake)

Ricky calls the rapper Snoopy-dog.

"What Julian doesn't know won't burn him."

"Did you just ask me if I wanna get married by you?"

"It's not everyday someone asks you to get married against 'em..."

"Man, he passed with flying fuckin' carpets."

Lahey's Shit Talk Edit

Lahey calls the boys 'shit-niks'.

"You know, he grew up as a little shit-spark from the old shit-flint. And then he turned into a shit-bonfire and then driven by the winds of his monumental ignorance, he turned into a raging shit-firestorm. If I get to be married to Barb I'll have total control of Sunnyvale, and then I can unleash a shitnami tidal wave that'll engulf Ricky and extinguish his shit-flames forever. And with any luck, he'll drown in the undershit of that wave. Shit-waves."
