A year after Jeff’s abduction, Hayley is still heartbroken, until she meets Millionaire Matt Davis, who may be able to help her move forward. Things are going great, until Steve and Snot catch a signal on a CB radio – Jeff’s alive in space and trying to make it back to Hayley.
Hayley starts an internship at a local news station working for a Nancy Grace-type reporter, who happens to be Roger in disguise.
Stan is fired from the CIA in a round of budget cuts, but since his 20 years of work experience are classified and hidden from his “permanent record”, the only job he’s able to land is at the local grocery store where Steve is the manager. Meanwhile, Roger bets an annoying coffee shop musician that he can outplay him in one week. To accomplish his goal, he enters into a Faustian bargain with Lorenzo, a guitar-instructing infomercial host.
Stan’s co-workers at the CIA teach him about “rubbernecking,” the art of checking out other women on the sly, away from the gaze of their wives. But when Stan causes a massive accident in an attempt to take a picture of an attractive jogger, he’s interviewed by an intimidating insurance inspector who may rat out Stan to Francine. Meanwhile, Roger and Klaus spill wine on the Smiths’ brand new couch, and vow never to tell the other family members by sitting on the stained spot for the rest of their lives.
Stan fears that Hayley has no life skills, so he forces her to take a job as a bartender in Roger’s attic haunt. However, when Bullock (guest voice Patrick Stewart) becomes Hayley’s best customer, Stan realizes that he can use his daughter’s knowledge to get ahead at work.
Stan attempts to infiltrate the “Occupy” movement, based on CIA intelligence that a leftist cell is planning a terrorist attack. But when he’s captured and returned home by a group of radicals, Hayley suspects her father may have been “turned.”
Stan takes an experimental drug that instantly turns him into a "woman.”
Stan is frustrated that Steve and his friends never play outside, but Francine refuses to let Stan take the kids to the woods for some outdoor fun. Of course, Stan finds a loophole, by drugging the kids and putting them on the CIA’s holodeck, which, naturally, goes awry. Meanwhile, Hayley buys Roger’s home star on the International Star Registry and claims she’s now his queen.
Roger forges a radical plan to help Steve date the hot girl at school Roger will switch faces with Steve “Face/Off”-style, seduce her, then tag Steve back in after she’s fallen for him. But, Roger soon decides he may actually want to keep her for himself. Meanwhile, Stan and Francine become “Charlie’s Angels”-type airline stewardesses to thwart an evil plan by Mark Cuban (guest-voicing as himself) to blow up the sun.
