Stan blows a bust of an arms dealer when he suffers an anxiety attack over being yelled at. After seeing the CIA psychologist, Dr. Ray Petit, he discovers he has issues stemming from when he believes he was kicked out of the Harlem Globetrotters basketball camp by Curly Neal. Taking Steve along to a game, he finds out that the newest generation of players are unfamiliar with the old squad, but he is redirected to a farm where they spend their retirement. He finds out that he wasn't really kicked out of a camp, but that the players tried to take him in when he was abandoned by his father and they had to return him when he came back.
Energized, Stan decides to work as a 'lone wolf' to go after the dealer but finds himself captured. Thanks to a tracking chip implanted by the doctor, he leads the Globetrotters to Stan and they attempt a rescue, but are surrounded and facing death as well. As they hear gunfire, they are surprised to be alive as Bullock had led a CIA team to a chip in Stan as well. With his issues solved back at home, the family realizes that Steve is missing due to being abandoned at the game. He is nearly adopted by Sesame Street on Ice until Stan returns for him.
Meanwhile, Klaus tries to set up his own web channel highlighting the follies of the family, but when he shows off his footage, they declare it is lame so he takes things to the extreme, which results in a lot of pain, but they decide they can join in with their own filmed stunts after his new footage is a success. However, they mostly, except for Roger who actually eats a spider, employ obvious fakes and cutaways so bad that Klaus can't use it. He sets up a party over a hole in the floor where he films their downfall, but falls in himself and has to be spit and peed on to survive, which becomes the new hit of the channel.
