Fore, Father

When Lois asks the family to help her with spring cleaning, Peter attempts to clean the house with a hose. This method ends up breaking things in the house. Because of this, Lois tells Peter to go somewhere else. He decides to go camping with Joe and Cleveland. While camping, Peter leaves Chris to guard the food supplies while he goes fishing with his friends. Upon returning, Chris reports that raccoons have stolen the food. After being chastized by Joe for not raising Chris properly, Peter gets Chris a job at the local golf driving range so that he will learn responsibility. Chris, however, gets pushed aside when Peter accepts a challenge to mould Cleveland's hyperactive son into a famous golfer. This leads to Chris hanging out with Quagmire.

Meanwhile, Stewie uses Brian's books to create papier-mâché replicas of the houseboat from the 1960s campy detective show Surfside 6 and the fort from the post-Civil War-era sitcom F Troop, another 1960s show. Lois brings Brian some of Peter's books, which include Mr. T by Mr. T, an autobiography of The A-Team star; T and Me by George Peppard, an actor who co-starred with Mr. T on The A-Team and For the Last Time, I'm Not Mr. T by Ving Rhames, an African American actor with a physique like that of Mr. T. (With the exception of Mr. T by Mr. T, all of these books are fictitious.)

As revenge against Stewie, Brian leads Stewie to believe the vaccine shots he received are some kind of mind control after he begins to have an unforeseen reaction. Stewie begins to suspect Lois of deliberately making him ill. When encouraging himself to fight his perceived illness, Stewie tells himself "do not go gentle into that good night". He first attributes the quote to singer-songwriter Bob Dylan but then corrects himself; it was written by poet Dylan Thomas.

When Meg asks why Stewie is freaking out, Lois explained that he is having hallucinations from the fever, just like one time when Meg accidentally ate "adult" brownies (presumably containing drugs) that Lois was saving for a Doobie Brothers concert.

Cleveland Jr. is about to win a tournament when he kicks a golf ball. He runs off, shouting "I'm Pelé!". At the end, Peter and Chris make up by hitting golf balls in the wrong direction.
