Shwayze performs in San Diego to promote his new album, but Warren finds himself in hot water when he loses an envelope with some heavy cash inside.
Shwayze's outside playing basketball while Cisco Adler's in the studio when Shwayze gets a call from Warren. Apparently, Warren got Shwayze's car booted by parking it in front of a hydrant. Hey, he was only running in for a taco!
When Cisco and Shwayze arrive at the scene, they realize that Shwayze must have a lot of outstanding tickets to warrant a boot. With his cash flow still low, Shwayze can only hope that his upcoming commercial with Pontiac will earn him enough green to release his ride.
After shooting the commercial, Shwayze learns that he owes more than $500 to the DMV but he won't be seeing any money from Pontiac for a few weeks. He decides to ask Suretone Records head honcho Jordan Schur for a little advance. Always the shrewd businessman, Jordan offers him a deal: finish the album and then get paid.
To prove to Jordan that they're close to being done, the Buzzin' boys invites him to the studio to check out their progress. Jordan really digs what he hears and loves Cisco Adler's suggestion about having Dave Navarro play a guitar solo. Something the record label executive isn't so enamored with, however, is Shwayze's persistent requests for cash. But upon learning that Shwayze only wants the money to get his car back, he breaks down and gives the aspiring superstar a cool $1,000.
When Shwayze lets Warren know the good news, the tour manager comes up with a seemingly brilliant plan. Shwayze only needs $600 to spring his car from the impound lot, so as long as he puts that aside, they can go out and party with the rest -- it's foolproof!
Cisco Adler sets the Buzzin' gang up with a suite at the Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood, provided that Shwayze picks up the food and drink tab. But as the party rages on, Shwayze realizes that he'll have to either pull the plug on a wild night or dip into the car fund. When he talks to Warren about the dilemma, the bevy of beautiful girls in the room makes their decision an easy one: party on!
The next morning, Shwayze must pay up, leaving him stuck in Hollywood with only $12 to his name. To make matters worse, Dave Navarro is on his way to lend some riffs to the album. If it doesn't happen now, he won't be available again for three weeks. Realizing that he'll be living on the streets if he has to wait that long for the album-completion reward Jordan promised him, Shwayze hops in a cab and asks for $12 worth of westward travel.
In Malibu, Warren jumps in Cisco Adler's car to meet Shwayze halfway, forgetting that that the keys to the studio are on Cisco's key ring. So, when Dave Navarro arrives and Shwayze is standing on a street corner in Beverly Hills, Cisco has to do his best to entertain the rock icon. Cisco stalls like a champion, showing Dave the view and even calling on Jordan Schur to schmooze a little bit. Soon, though, Dave gets suspicious of what's really going on and threatens to bail. Fortunately, Warren and Shwayze pull up just as Dave is getting into his car. Phew!
Once Dave Navarro lays down a scorching solo for the album's closing track, Shwayze's album is finally finished! Shwayze comes clean about his lateness and apologizes to Dave about the wait, but the seasoned veteran of the rock and roll lifestyle is quick to forgive. Jordan isn't happy to hear that Shwayze blew the cash on girls, but Dave says he'd drop a grand on a girl before getting his car! With a little coaxing from Dave, Jordan give Shwayze $5,000 for finishing the album.
Cash in hand, an exuberant Shwayze and the rest of the Buzzin' crew go to rescue his whip from the clutches of the impound lot. Now if only the damn thing would start...
