Rob winds up on the C-List and the boys bring home new rides.
While Big is folding laundry, Rob pulls him outside to show him "something special." It's Rob's hot new ride -- a totally pimped out UAV truck! Rob says he was sick of driving around in his old truck and wanted some stealth new wheels. Big gives him the stamp of approval as he checks out the all-black vehicle with 24-inch rims. Drama, Rob's cousin/assistant, is also a huge fan of the new truck.
Rob decides that he wants to give away his old truck, but not to just anybody -- he wants the recipient to be a true skater. Drama offers himself as a candidate but Rob and Big shoot him down because he's a "poser" who only skates every few months. Rob says he'd rather hold a competition where kids show off their skating skills, and he'll use that as the basis for selecting the lucky heir of his old truck.
The next morning, Rob sees a degrading story about him on the cover of The Wall Street Journal. Rob is horrified when the writer calls him a "C-list" celebrity and claims that Rob needs to peddle his old cars in order to make money. Rob and Big try to figure out where the writer got her information when Rob has an epiphany. He remembers giving out his personal information to a guy he sold his old Mercedes-Benz to and thinks the guy probably told the story to the newspaper.
To find out if this is indeed what happened, Big tries to contact the reporter who wrote the article, but ends up leaving her a message to call Rob back directly. When his phone rings, Rob is surprised to hear his mom on the other end, telling him that the story makes him look like a "loser."
Frustrated and hurt by the fact that his own mother called him a loser, Rob skates off some of his anger and comes up with the perfect way to give away his old truck. At his next autograph signing, Rob decides to give his fans a chance to beat him in some skateboarding challenges. Whoever manages to keep up with Rob and beat Big in a round of Rochambeau will be named the lucky winner!
Later that day, Big surprises Rob with his own hot new ride -- a tiny '79 pinto! Rob can't believe his eyes, but Big calls the car "the best $3,000 I ever spent." They take the car out for a spin and wind up at an auto shop, where Big decides he wants to paint his Pinto all black to match Rob's new truck.
Rob and Big then drive Rob's old truck to Rob's autograph signing, where anxious kids wait in line to get a glimpse of the pro skater. To the crowd's delight, Rob announces that he's holding a competition, which he calls the Sk8 Games. After many trials and failures, one lucky guy named Frank Sanchez manages to beat Rob in Sk8 Games and kick Big's butt in Rochambeau. Rob happily hands over his old truck, under one condition -- Frank must chauffeur Rob and Big home since they gave away their only ride!
Back at the house, Rob is still upset about the humiliating newspaper article and is ticked that the writer never returned his call. To cheer him up, Big gives him back an old leather jacket that he claimed to have thrown out awhile ago, naming it the "C-list jacket." Rob happily takes the jacket and struts his stuff, laughing off the embarrassing story.
