As a hurricane approaches Quahog, Rhode Island, the Griffins prepares for its arrival. In his own attempt to pass the time, Brian decides to use magic mushrooms, to the curiosity of Stewie. As the mushrooms start to take effect on Brian, he begins having hallucinations and cuts his own ear off, thinking it would cease World War II. Stewie tries to help Brian by staying by his side and taking care of him, but Brian's hallucinations begin to consume him and become more disturbing and frightening to the point where he sees Stewie transforming into a hideous demon towering over him before he views himself in a grotesque and hellish world. During his nightmare sequence, Brian is continually attacked by various monsters resembling the Griffins and Quagmire. Fortunately, he eventually snaps out of the effect after Stewie helps him downstairs to drink some water.

The rest of the family tries to pass the time by playing charades and various other games. They are unable to keep themselves entertained and take their anger out on Meg. Having put up with their abuse for years, Meg finally gets the nerve to stand up to them, starting with Chris for being an awful brother to her. When Lois tries to tell Meg that she is simply taking her own problems out on everyone else, Meg brings up her mother's past and tells her that she is far from a good parent. She also tells Lois that when she turns eighteen, she is considering leaving and cutting off all contact with her, breaking Lois's heart. Meg then confronts Peter who, unable to comprehend her insults, thinks that his daughter's argument is amusing until she calls him a "waste of a man."

Within moments, Peter, Lois and Chris turn their abusive criticisms on each other. Peter then runs away to his room crying, leaving Meg and Brian to discuss what just happened. Despite Brian complimenting her for standing up for herself, Meg concludes that her family cannot survive without a "lightning rod" to absorb its dysfunction, and that her putting up with her family's abuse helps keep them together. Brian tells her that she is more mature than her family. She then decides to explain that she was taking her own problems out on everyone, restoring their egos and opinions.

Stewie then breaks the fourth wall by telling the audience about the repercussions of drugs: "Tonight's Family Guy was a very special episode about drug use, but the simple fact is, it's no laughing matter. To learn more about drugs, visit your local library. There's probably a guy behind there who sells drugs."
