Rob tortures his mom when the Dyrdek clan pays a visit to Hollywood.
After Rob and Big debate the value of Hustler versus Playboy, Rob announces that his parents are coming to town. Rob is psyched because his parents still treat him like he's 13 years old, so he feels free to torture his mom like he did when he was 13.
As the visit gets closer, Rob realizes that he's lost a framed poem his mom, Pat, got him. She loves that poem, so Rob's only choice is to try and re-create it. Too bad he doesn't remember anything except that the poem was printed on blue paper. Still, Rob is convinced that his new and improved version will fool his mama. Big is all too happy to make a $5 bet that she'll know the difference, and Rob says he gets an extra $5 if she cries.
Rob and Big head to the airport to pick up Rob's parents and sister, Denise. Rob wastes no time torturing his family, pulling some crazy moves on the highway. Rob's dad, Gene, is happy to see that Rob doesn't act any differently than he did when he was younger, even though his mom sure wishes he would!
When the Dyrdek clan arrives at Rob and Big's house, Rob quickly shows off his poem in hopes his mom will cry. But his mom is afraid she'll get emotional, so she refuses to read it. As Rob reads the poem out loud, she doesn't seem to notice that it's not the one she wrote. Looks like he just made five bucks off Big -- but he still wants that extra cash!
Later, Big and Drama try to ditch out on "family night." While Rob won't "force fun" on Big, Drama doesn't have a choice -- he's family after all. Drama tries to get out of it again by saying he doesn't have anything to wear, but Rob isn't letting him off the hook. Rob dresses him up in a mismatched suit.
Before dinner, Rob's dad treats his son like a kid, explaining to Rob the proper way to wear a suit. Rob fires back, insisting his suit is nicer than his dad's. Although Rob doesn't know what exactly makes a suit nice, he ends up being right -- his dad's suit has a 130 thread count while Rob sports 150 count. Rob wins!
The Dyrdek clan rolls out to dinner in style, hopping into the stretch Hummer Rob's rented. Rob wants to bust open the liquor, but dad says no. This results in a Rob singing a "crap-happy" song that his mom tries to hush. Ever the 13-year-old, Rob proceeds to sing louder and with more obscenities. Finally, Rob stops to tell everyone they look nice -- except for Drama, who looks ridiculous.
Rob and his family arrive at The Magic Castle, a fancy restaurant that also puts on magic shows. Midway through the show, Rob sneaks off and magically appears in a box onstage. Rob's mom is astounded and tries to get him to fess up to how he got inside the box, but Rob will only say he's a real magician.
The next day, Rob gives his family a bunch of stickers for his clothing line. Not so they can keep them but so they can stick them on buses and street signs. During a double-decker bus tour of Hollywood, Rob wants his family to test out their sticker skills by covering the tops of other buses. Then, Rob jumps off the bus to put stickers up and down the Walk of Fame. Rob's mom isn't happy that he keeps breaking the law, so Rob swears he'll stop if she puts a sticker on something. She refuses, even though Rob's dad puts a sticker on a port-a-potty and his sister sticks one on the top of a bus.
Driving around town, Rob jumps in and out of his car putting stickers on everything. When his mom refuses to sticker a parking meter, Rob decides to do it himself. It's all good until a cop car pulls up, sirens blazing. Rob's parents watch in horror as their beloved baby boy gets cuffed for vandalizing city property. The cop comes to question mom and pop, making them get out of the car. Rob's mom bursts into tears, pleading with the cop not to take her son to jail. As she weeps on the street, Rob yells "April Fools!" Yup, the whole thing was a joke! But his sobbing mom doesn't think it's funny.
Back at Rob and Big's house, all Rob's mom wants is a clean place to lie down after her harrowing day. Unfortunately, such a place doesn't exist -- and she's definitely not getting any peace, as Rob needles her about the prank, asking what she thought when she saw him in handcuffs. She says she thought his prankster ways had finally bitten him in the behind -- but it turns out he'd just taken pranking to the next level!
All too soon, it's time for the Dyrdeks to say goodbye and head home. As they walk out the door, Rob tries one last time to make his mom cry by reading her the poem, but she's not having it. She does, however, start crying when they hug goodbye, leaving Rob teary-eyed. See? Even 13-year-old boys can show a soft spot for their mama!
