The Griffin family vacations at Quagmire’s cabin. While the family goes swimming in Lake Quahog, they discover that a nearby oil refinery is dumping toxic waste into the lake. As the family flees from the lake, they become almost completely hairless. They are ultimately forced to wear wigs until their hair grows back, and once it does, Lois complains to Mayor Adam West, who admits that he sanctioned the dumping in exchange for free oil for his hair. Outraged, Lois decides to run against West in the upcoming mayoral election. Peter and his friends, meanwhile, become strong supporters of Lois’ campaign, realizing that they could get away with anything because of their relations to Lois if she becomes mayor. As such, they do everything in their power to gain the town’s support so that she can win the race. Lois is then elected, and succumbs to pressure by the toxic dump owner to allow him to resume dumping in the lake. Lois then decides to resign, and West then become mayor again, after agreeing to “play ball” with the waste dump owner.
