Stan and Francine always go out on Fridays to same exact place and have the same routine, and Francine is bored. Francine tells Stan she's looking for excitement in their marriage, so Stan gets in the driver's seat and becomes involved in street racing to spice things up. Francine loses a $50,000 bet on a race, and when she can't come up with the money she is kidnapped and held hostage. Stan and Roger must try to get the money to get her back. Roger decides the quickest way to their goal is to rob convenience stores, which Stan reluctantly goes along with. However, he has a change of heart at the second store and leaves the car so he can do things "his way." He goes into a phone booth, leaving his post as getaway driver and resulting in Roger getting caught and beaten by the irate store owners.
Stan later finds Francine bound and gagged with her kidnappers. He hands over a suitcase and opens it to reveal phone books on top of a thin layer of money. Stan realizes he opened the suitcase upside down revealing the phone books. His plan a failure, Stan simply grabs Francine and tries to escape, with the kidnappers in hot pursuit. They escape after Roger lightens the car by removing parts of it and throwing them (and finally, when there are no more car parts to throw, his beloved Rod Stewart record collection) at the cars of the kidnappers, driving them off the road. After getting away, Francine and Stan decide that they'd like something more exciting than dinner at the same restaurant every Friday night but less exciting than what they'd just been through. They decide that having sex right there on the sidewalk would fit that description, and do so.
Meanwhile, Hayley breaks up with her boyfriend, Jeff, who is emotionally crushed until he joins Steve's world of online gaming. When Hayley finds out she tries to talk things out with Jeff, but he ignores her while playing with Steve and the other nerds. Feeling enraged, she tries to sabotage their fun to get Jeff back. At Klaus's suggestion, she kills Steve's amazing character by saying his name, Agathor, backwards. However, this doesn't get Jeff coming back to Hayley, as he is now angry with her for hurting her brother and refused to do anything with her. Also Steve is now crushed as he lost his standing among his friends, who then treat Steve as a slave. Realizing how much Agathor meant to Steve, Hayley finds out about an amulet that will resurrect Agathor and gets Jeff's help in killing the monster that guards it. They succeed and restore Agathor to life. Jeff decides that he would like to get back together with Hayley ("we make a great team"), but she has already found someone else while playing the game and Jeff angrily destroys his laptop in response. Steve is happy to have Agathor alive again and goes to take revenge on his friends. But one of them just says Agathor's name backwards, killing Agathor once again. At that rate, Steve angrily responded: "SON OF A BITCH!!!"
