After Joe fails to catch a crook in a Jimmy Carter mask who stole money from a local charity car wash, Peter enters him in the Special Olympics to boost his spirits. Meanwhile, Chris, Meg and Stewie fight over a wad of money they found.
This episode contains examples of:
- Inspirationally Disadvantaged: Joe, a far cry from how he would be portrayed in later episodes.
- Overly Long Gag: Joe crying at The Clam after the thief got away.
- Reality Ensues: As Joe points out to the Griffin kids, finding a wad of money doesn't mean it's automatically theirs. Instead, they must wait two weeks for someone to claim it before they can keep it if nobody comes forward.
- Volumetric Mouth: Stewie, after somebody came to claim the money just before the two weeks were up.
