Brian (voice of Seth MacFarlane) takes Lois (voice of Alex Borstein) to see his friend's one-man show at the Quahog Community Playhouse. Disgusted by the show's self-indulgence, Brian decides to try his hand at acting. At his audition, however, he's upstaged by Stewie (MacFarlane), who gets put into the drama school's "Rising Star" program. There, he quickly runs afoul of a classmate, a bitchy diva named Olivia (voice of Rachael MacFarlane). But when Stewie learns that they're both in danger of being kicked out of class, he convinces Olivia to team up with him, performing a musical number that brings the house down. This inspires their teacher to start booking gigs for them. While the two click together perfectly on-stage, they constantly bicker off-stage. At a big show with a critic from The Providence Journal in the house, the two get into a fistfight on-stage, leading to the dissolution of the act. Meanwhile, Peter (MacFarlane) rescues a man at sea who turns out to be a nudist. In gratitude, Dave Campbell (voice of Fred Willard) invites the Griffins to dinner, where they awkwardly meet the nude family. Meg (voice of Mila Kunis) takes a liking to the Campbells' naked teenage son, Jeff (voice of Chris Cox), and is distraught to learn that her parents don't approve of the relationship.
