The family arrives to the dilapidated Blockbuster store. Randy gives the family a tour of the store, while the others show their dislike for the store. Randy defends the store. That next Friday, Randy and Shelly are working while Sharon and Stan are not. Randy asks Shelly how many copies of [[Wikipedia:Meet the Fockers|''Meet the Fockers'']] they have, Shelly responds angrily that they still have six, meaning no one rented any. The next day, [[Filmore Anderson]] loses his ball and Randy picks it up and asks Filmore and his friend if they would like to rent some DVDs, scaring the kids away.

The next Tuesday, Randy is walking in the Blockbuster store when he sees a woman with a headband in one aisle. The woman tells him she can't seem to find "[[Wikipedia:Turner and Hooch|''Turner and Hooch'']]" and then dissipates. Randy is mad because Blockbuster is apparently so old, it has ghosts. Another ghost appears and tells someone named Emily that the war is over and that they should rent a movie from Blockbuster. Randy goes into a tangent, yelling at the ghost and jumping up and down. Stan, from afar, watches Randy yelling at nothing and tells his mother that he thinks that something is wrong with his father. Sharon agrees.

Cartman rants that Stan has ruined their plans, saying that people wouldn't know who they were. At the first house, the man knows who everyone is except for Cartman, who he thinks is Bruce Vilanch, then the incredible Chaz Bono. His wife suggests that he is the incredible Harvey Firesteen, then the man finally suggests, the incredible fat and gay, skinny, straight man, which pisses Cartman off. At the next house, the man thinks that Cartman is [[Alana Thompson|Honey Boo Boo]], furiating Cartman even more. And all the while, Cartman blames Stan's costume for people misunderstanding him for someone else.

Randy explains that he saw it for sale the week before for $10,000, even listing the supposed pros of owning the business. On the drive down to the store, Stan mentions watching movies online is more convenient and that no one rents movies anymore. 

The family arrives to the dilapidated Blockbuster store. Randy gives the family a tour of the store, while the others show their dislike for the store. Randy defends the store. That next Friday, Randy and Shelly are working while Sharon and Stan are not.
