In Miami, Roz and Bulldog receive a Winnebago from Denise’s sorority sisters as a leaving present and impulsively decide to make their journey home a road trip. When they run out of gas, Roz, Bulldog, Gil and Kenny are forced to stop at a nearby town and find that it is deserted. Kenny is quickly overcome with ideas of a possible “ghost town”, while Bulldog delights in stocking up on booze. The next morning, Roz discovers that the Winnebago has been towed, and realises they have trespassed on “the wild west experience”.

Roz decides to give them both a scare, by pretending to look at brochures for military schools and a divorce guidebook. Bulldog and Stuart immediately suspect it to be a prank and try to return the scare by pretending Stuart has been expelled.

Meanwhile, Kenny tries to get over Denise by writing a theoretical letter of closure, which is wrongly mailed.

Meanwhile, Roz hires increased security for KACL and has metal detectors installed, but she gets the worst out of it when her cell phone sets off the detector every time she passes through it.
