Stan spends each year anxiously awaiting his annual jury summons, eager to volunteer as soon as possible. However, this annoys Roger who makes a point of blowing off such summons. When Stan tells him that one day he'll have to answer for his misdeeds Roger scoffs, bragging that his charm can get him out of anything. But when Roger is the defendant in a trial where Stan is the foreman, Stan is finally in a position to make Roger accountable for his misdeeds. Seeing that Stan refuses to help him, Roger turns on the charm and gains the trust of the entire courtroom. Only when Stan refuses to let the other jurors leave do they return a guilty verdict. On his way to prison, Roger escapes. Stan sees the news and takes off in pursuit, although when his attempt to pass himself off as a federal marshal fails, he knocks out a real marshal to steal his jacket. When Roger calls him to taunt him, Roger trips up revealing his location forcing Roger to change personas. Stan tracks Roger with the help of a bloodhound to a former employee's house where he finds Roger attempting to retrieve money to leave the country. Roger begs Stan to let him go, promising to do his civic duty. As Stan places Roger under arrest, the marshal that Stan knocked out earlier arrives and places Stan under arrest. Stan goes on trial only to find Roger as part of the jury determined to convict him.
Meanwhile, Jeff and Hayley move in with the Smiths, and Francine forces Jeff to clean up his act by cutting off smoking pot. Hayley and Jeff protest citing a medical condition but are dismissed by Francine. Jeff finally agrees to go along. Jeff's condition soon proves to be more shocking than Francine imagined as, when he isn't stoned, Jeff finds he must masturbate constantly. Francine tries to offer advice to Hayley to help keep Jeff under control but nothing works. Finding Jeff pleasuring himself in the cabinet, Francine gives in and joins Jeff in getting stoned.
