While on a break at recess, Stan Marsh goes inside to use the bathroom and finds a list from the girls for 'Most Exciting', on which he is ranked last. Feeling insecure, Stan goes to see Wendy Testaburger about it and begins to feel better but ends up vomiting on her. Wendy becomes angry with him and he is sent to Nurse Gollum's office. After a failed attempt to get advice from Mr. Garrison, Stan's father Randy comes to pick him up from school. Stan is taken home and ponders his friendships before he has to check his e-mail, where he sees a video about stopping animal testing, leading him to call Kyle. Meanwhile, Wendy and Bebe Stevens have a brief discussion about Wendy and Stan's relationship.
Later in the afternoon, Stan is caught up in helping his father prepare food for a family dinner, with Randy encouraging him to try new foods rather than be 'boring', resulting in Stan cutting his finger. Shelly Marsh and Stan's grandfather enter the room, the latter arguing with Randy for coddling Stan, giving him time to slip away. Stan cleans his wound before letting his Uncle Jimbo and Ned in for dinner. Stan's family members primarily discuss how 'soft' they feel he is. When Shelly resolves to attack Stan, he is saved by his mother's arrival home.
While they set the table, Nurse Goodly arrives, having been called by Sharon due to worry over his health. Nurse Goodly examines Stan but only recommends a Doctor's appointment, but she does hit it off with Ned. When Stan is sent to call everyone for dinner, he suggests his family gives him trouble to cover up their own personality flaws due to his normality. Over dinner, Stan refuses to eat the fancy duck dinner his father has cooked, prompting several varying reactions, including worry over his health, Randy defending his cooking, Ned and Nurse Goodly flirting, and Stan ends up snapping that he only fades into the background because he comes from "a family of freaks", and he is grounded in turn.
