Earl and Zeke are wearing "Gave Blood Till I Passed Out" T-shirts and saying that they're going to climb the Camden landfill for T-shirts today, which might take all day because it's 60 feet higher than before. [The last part should be easy, though, since most of the newest trash is from that stair factory they demolished. - Z] They drive off, and Randy realizes he can cross them off his list. He's about to when he smells smoke and sees the T-shirts burning up on the clothesline. Arlo's there, and he tells Randy that he did it so that Zeke will think Earl did it and he can get his brother back. Randy tells him that he's sure it sounded like a good plan in the beginning; he's had lots of plans like that. Example: He tried to breed wiener dogs and cats to make wiener cats. "But you don't get long, skinny cats. You get one dead cat and a dog with lots of scratches." He thinks Arlo's plan is worse than that one. Arlo says he only needs a plan because Randy got Zeke and Earl back together again. Randy realizes Arlo's his real list item, because it's never the first thing Earl fixes either. He says he should have known, because the neediest, most annoying guys are always the list items. Yes, he says that out loud. To Arlo.
Oh, wait, here's Catalina again. She's sitting with Arlo and Randy at the Crab Shack as Randy tries to figure out how to cross Arlo off his list. Catalina tells Arlo he has a scar that looks just like Pam Anderson, and she runs off to get her camera to photograph it. Not at all a waste of Catalina, right? [I can't believe they still consider her a main character. - Z] Randy tells Arlo he understands him being jealous, because he used to get jealous, too, when Earl would make a new friend and spend less time with him. Arlo admits Zeke's never really spent that much time with him, except when their mom used to lock them in the closet so she could go out and drink. Arlo wishes they were more like Randy and Earl. Randy says Earl didn't always like hanging out with him, but Randy had to become the best little brother ever. Arlo thinks he's a pretty good little brother. Randy says, "Excuse me, but you're annoying and boring, and you smell like onions." Randy likes onions, but a lot of people don't. (And most people who do like onions don't like people smelling like them, but Randy probably wouldn't get that fine line.) But now Randy knows how to help Arlo.
He starts explaining how to be a good little brother: Always laugh at their jokes. We see Randy walk into his and Earl's hotel room, and Earl asks him what happens when two snails get in a fight. Answer: They slug it out. Randy laughs, as his voiceover tells Arlo that you laugh even when the joke's unfunny. We see Randy roll his eyes, but Earl doesn't. Then he tells Arlo in voiceover to take care of his brother when he doesn't groom himself. In flashback, Randy trims Earl's moustache while he sleeps. Randy goes on to put yourself in situations where your big brother can be your hero. In a flashback, Randy walks up to a girl and slaps her on the butt, but it's actually a guy with long hair. Randy tells Earl he's in danger and hides behind him. Earl yells at the guy that he better not mess with Randy, then gets real close to him to tell him what's going to happen, and the guy looks scared. Back in the present, Randy tells Arlo to brush up on his little brother duties. They practice their fake laughs.
