"The Gang Finds a Dumpster Baby"

Dennis is moved by the horrors revealed in "The Inconvenient Truth". He tries to lecture his sister and friend on what they should be doing to help save the environment. Mac disregards Dennis' concerns throwing a soda cup to the ground in an alley. Dennis picks up the cup to throw away in a dumpster and finds a baby has been abandoned inside. The three take the baby back to the bar to figure out what to do with it. Frank and Charlie don't want the baby around claiming it is bad for business. Mac takes a stand for the baby and claims he is going to raise it, with the help of Dee. Sweet Dee isn't happy at all that Mac volunteered her to help in taking care of the infant but agrees to it anyway.

When they get home with the baby, Mac leaves all of the care to Dee. Their frustrations mount when they realize that raising a baby isn't as fun as they thought it would be. On their way to ditch the baby again a passer-byer on the street compliments them on how cute the baby is. The
woman tells them that he looks as though he could be in commercials. Mac and Dee then decide the baby could come in handy and take the baby to a talent agency. Unfortunately they are told there isn't a need for white babies, Hispanics are all the rage right now.

Desperate to break into show business with the baby they take him to a tanning bed in hopes of making him darker. The tanning bed attendant will not let them put the baby in the bed which angers Mac and Dee. After they use some choice language on the overly tanned worker he calls social services on them.

Meanwhile Charlie and Frank find what they believe to be treasure at the landfill and become obsessed with dumpster diving. They are exhausting themselves and filling their apartment with worthless trash but they are in love with their finds. Charlie's coffee shop girlfriend catches
them in the dumpster behind the shop embarrassing Charlie. To prove that he wasn't dumpster diving like a homeless person Charlie brings in the baby claiming "look what I found in the dumpster" She too calls social services on Charlie and Frank.

Since they can't tan the baby and they need him to appear to be Hispanic Dee and Mac have a few options they are willing to try out. Shoe polish, paint. Dabbing dark colored substances on the baby's face as he sits in his car seat in the bar a social worker and police walk in catching
them in the act.

Dennis has been absent from the dumpster treasure find and caring for the baby because he is trying to get involved with an environmentalist group.

The group thinks he is a joke only forcing him to take his actions to an extreme. Finally having enough of insults from one particular member. Dennis sets him up to be chained to a tree the city intends on cutting down. A severe thunderstorm is rolling into town and Dennis and the guy's
girlfriend are back at Dennis' place having sex. The following morning when the activist finally leaves the tree believing he saved it. A city worker on a bulldozer plows it over.

"The Gang Goes Invincible"

Word gets out that there will be public try outs for the Philadelphia Eagles just like in the movie "Invincible" Mac and Dennis are amped! They believe, each have a good chance of making it on the team and as a super star. Really they both just want the chance to run and play on the official Eagles playing field. To their surprise Dee feels she should have a shot at trying out and the try outs won't be held on the prized Eagles field.

Charlie and Frank are also amped up. They are going to go tailgate in support of their friends and family. Frank has bigger things in mind. He wants to drop acid. Charlie is against the drugs but is all for relaxing and drinking a few beer. Even when the tryout location is changed Charlie
and Frank don't sweat it. They make the move and settle in.

To everyone's surprise the McBoyle family makes an appearance. The oversized, over charged Doyle McBoyle brother of the incestuous brothers from their past shows up for tryouts. The entire McBoyle family arrive in an outdated RV to lend their support. Incest and backwoods traditions
run rapid as they make their camp spot next to Charlie and Frank. On the playing field Dee and Doyle shine as star players while Mac and Dennis struggle to out do their opponents and each other.

Dee seems to be a superstar until she reveals that she is a woman. Once her secret is out, of her own doing, she fails and breaks like a little girl.

Frank slips acid in Charlie's beer when he won't agree to drop acid with him. Charlie begins to see things from another prospective and worries about his fate in the hands of the McBoyle brothers and family.

For entertainment and drug induced purposes Charlie reverts back to an old high school prank he used to do. He puts on an entire body, green spandex suit as "green man" Charlie runs about making a fool of himself in the suit looking like a faceless alien, while Frank believes he is
locked in the restroom of the McBoyle RV. Come to find out Frank is floundering in a trash can in the parking lot when he is tripping on acid and believes to be in the restroom.

Dennis, Mac, or Sweet Dee don't make the team because of their own pettiness and inability to perform on the feild as a professional. Their childish ways cause Doyal his chance at the title only infuriating the McBoyle family more.

Frank and Charlie find them selves working their way out of an air duct and finding themselves face to face with Dee, Dennis, and Mac who are being held at gunpoint by the MC Poyles. Frank and Charlie immediately throw their hands in the air as if to surrender when they see what is going on.

Frank laughs nervously. The nervous laughter is infectious. The gang watches in odd curiosity as the McPoyles and Frank laugh louder and louder with the passing seconds. No one really knows what anyone is laughing at. Then Frank pulls his pistol from behind his back. Firing shot after shot off at the McPoyle brothers he causes one to go over the ledge. His other brother grabs him just barely by the hand. As one McPoyle brother barely holds on to the other it looks as if he may be
saved. Guess again, not if Frank has anything to do with it. Frank appears with a two by four pressing it to the hanging brother´s face forcing him to lose his grip. The fall is in slow motion and dramatic as the McPoyle siblings scream for their fallen brother. The gang gasps and covers their mouths is shock.

Come to find out the fall was only about ten feet. The fallen McPoyle brother lands on his feet with nothing more than a possible bruise on his heel. The other brother and sister Margaret climb down a fire ladder and run off with their brother. The McPoyles laugh and think they have exacted an imaginary revenge on Frank and the gang. Dee, Dennis, Frank, Charlie, and Mac all watch the McPoyles run away laughing unsure of what just happened.
