Plot: Steve loses interest in his activities with Stan, who quickly dumps him for Barry, a kid who appreciates him. But Barry's very different when he's not taking his "vitamins" (retard aggression pills)— he goes insane (rather: un-retarded) and starts talking like Gary Oldman. Being preferred, he manages to have Steve sent to a youth penal oil rig in the Atlantic ocean where Steve uses his father's skills to escape.
Meanwhile, Roger's beer-swilling skills come in handy when he decides to join a fraternity at Hayley's college (He leaves when they tell him newbies have to clean after the party while brothers sleep).
