When Lois (voice of Alex Borstein) announces that it's time for "spring cleaning," Peter (voice of Seth MacFarlane) is anxious to get out of it. He ends up taking Chris (voice of Seth Green) on a fishing trip with his neighbors, Joe (voice of Patrick Warburton) and Cleveland (voice of Mike Henry) and their children. Cleveland is also eager to get away as his wife is having a visit from her "Aunt Flo." "Loretta likes to personify her menses in humorous ways," he needlessly explains. On the disastrous trip ("All we caught was a tire, a boot, a tin can, and this book of clich├ęs"), Joe criticizes Peter's parenting skills, and says he's turning Chris into a slacker. Peter responds by getting Chris a job shagging golf balls at a driving range. But Peter is soon distracted from his own son by Cleveland, Jr. (Henry), who can drive a ball 300 yards. Cleveland warns him that the boy has a short attention span, but Peter is determined to turn the boy into a pro, and enters him into the golf club's "Man-Boy Golf Tournament," all the while ignoring his own son. Meanwhile, Stewie (MacFarlane) destroys Brian's (MacFarlane) library. Revenge is served cold when Stewie returns from getting his first vaccination, and Brian soon has him convinced that he's been injected with some kind of mind control serum. This episode features the voice talents of Gary Cole and Nicole Sullivan. The cold opening, a cruel parody of Little House on the Prairie, was edited from FOX's original airing of the episode, but was restored in repeats.
