Other episode plots involve Klaus discovering his human body before switching it with Stan's ("Da Flippity Flop"), Roger becoming Stan's stepfather ("American Stepdad"), and Hayley landing a job as a bar singer for Roger ("Love, AD Style"). In order to have a date to a school dance, Steve and Snot make two clones, but things do not turn out as they had hoped. The Smith family receives poltergeist activity. Steve sets out to establish his manhood by accompanying Stan, Bullock, and the rest of the CIA on their annual hunting trip because he is eager to demonstrate that he is no longer a boy. Roger and Klaus started their cross-country road adventure in the meanwhile.
