In 2032 Philadephia, Sandy Lai- Edwards informs Dwane Johnson about a public relations crisis that he must deal with as soon as possible. The people are so mad at him that his polling numbers have even gone down in the North East. He heads over to a protest at Philly’s Prize Cheesesteaks. He apologizes to the public for having a cheesesteak protein style, i.e., without a bun. Funny enough, people want him to apologize, considering that it is not American to do so. Dwayne apologizes, asking for a second chance at redemption, and starts narrating the flashback for the episode.

Here Dwayne wants to apologize to his girlfriend, Karen, for standing her up on a date. So, she asks him to show that he is fully committed by having her at his place for dinner with Dwayne’s parents. This panics Dwayne as he has always portrayed himself to be rich in front of Karen. In reality, he was working the gimmick pretending to be rich. Being so tense, he takes out his anger on the football coach. Later he goes to his father, who advises him to work the gimmick harder. So, Dwayne takes his dad’s car for a date with Karen. But, everything goes wrong for him as he finally has to tell her the truth regarding his family.
Elsewhere, Ata and Rocky start having a lot of problems with money. Ata is trying her best to provide for her family, while Rocky tries to help her out half-heartedly. In the end, Rocky sells his car so the family can have some money. Dwayne goes over what he did wrong in his anger as he goes to the football coach and apologizes for the way he behaved.
