A planeload of psychoactive toads from Colombia crashes in Quahog, starting a new drug craze among the town's youth. "I finally get Aaron Sorkin's Sports Night," says one tripping teen. "It's a comedy that's too good to be funny." News reports mention that slang terms for toad licking include "lily-padding, frenching the prince, and doing Kermit." When Lois (voice of Alex Borstein) and Peter (voice of Seth MacFarlane) find a dead toad in the house, they confront Chris (voice of Seth Green) and Meg (voice of Mila Kunis), who reveals that she was holding the toad for Connie D'Amico (voice of Fairuza Balk), a popular girl at school. Peter decides to take action, and goes to the principal with his plan. Calling himself "Lando Griffin," he goes undercover as a new student. Meg is aghast until Peter's ruse works. He convinces the kids (through song!) not to "do toad" anymore, and is soon seen as one of the coolest kids in school. Meg takes advantage of her father's popularity by arranging for "Lando" to take her to an upcoming school dance. But Peter is so caught up in being a popular high school kid that when Connie asks him to go with her instead, he accepts, telling his own daughter, "Something suddenly came up." This episode features a vocal cameo by Gregg Allman.
