While at a drive thru, the radio played background music while Randy did drums on the dashboard. The drive thru guy said they were good so they formed a band.

At the old folk's home, Tom agrees to be in the band again, since he missed out on it last time. The band kicked Tom out because he was old and was cramping their style. Earl and Randy get Ralph, who was also in the band.

At the motel, Tom reads out number 51 because he has trouble sleeping. He mentions "Slept with Ralph's Mom". Ralph cannot believe the betrayal and leaves.

Earl remember that night. After their gig, Earl and the rest of the band brought home three chicks to Ralph's house. Randy got to go with one, Ralph got his too, but Earl's chick was passed out. Earl had too much leftover energy and need to have sex, and Ralph's mom offered. Earl was drunk and he had sex with Ralph's mom.

Earl finds Ralph at the Crab Shack and offers his apology. Ralph says its fine, he will simply give Earl 24 hours to run away, and then Ralph will come after him and kill him.

Tom is later then shafted again because of this new problem. Earl asks if there is any other way that they can make it up to him, and he says no. He wants to be in a band so he can have sex and re-live a memory he never got.
