Episode begins with Clarence telling his story about what happened when he and some other kids were on an adventure when Nature Kate. Clarence exaggerated everything, though, and Jeff didn't believe the story. Soon, Joshua arrives and tells Clarence, Jeff, Sumo and Percy that the hike's cancelled because Nature Kate has to save a baby goat.

Why are you a jerk

The kids are disappointed. Clarence asks Joshua why he told Kate that he loves her on the phone, and Joshua says that they're involved romantically. Clarence heard that their relationship is on the rocks, he also says that Kate thinks Joshua's lazy, angry and has no ambitions. This makes Joshua angry, so he decides to take all of them on a hike to Sheep's Bridge. Sumo doesn't think it's a good idea because it looks dangerous, but that is why Joshua wants to go there.

They all go in Joshua's car, but it can't handle the rough terrain and lots of parts of the car pop off. Sumo punches Joshua's seat, and Clarence sings very loudly. The car nearly crashes a big rock, but Joshua goes around it in time, then Percy asks Joshua to open this milk carton. One hour later, more parts of Joshua's car pop off. Percy spits up his milk and Joshua gets distracted, causing the car to bump into a bunch of cacti.

Percy LOL

Two hours later, Joshua's car starts letting out smoke and the hood flies off. Sumo continues punching Joshua's seat. Joshua tells him to stop, so Sumo starts kicking his seat instead. Sumo says Joshua doesn't know where they are. Joshua gets so angry that he decides to turn the car around and start going home. Clarence doesn't want to go home, so he, Jeff and Sumo starts chanting "Turn around!" Joshua turns up the radio and starts driving faster. Soon, all the wheels pop off and the car starts sliding, but it eventually stops. Joshua steps out of the car to see what happened, and Sumo runs off like a wild animal.

Three hours later, Clarence, Jeff, Percy and Joshua check their phones to see if they can make contact. Clarence's phone has lots of bars, but a bird swoops in and takes his phone. Four hours later, the four are shown walking in the desert. Clarence says that Nature Kate got them there in only 20 minutes and even gave them granola. Joshua gets angry and tells someone else to lead. Clarence decides to be the leader,

Where the heck are we, clarence

and the others follow him. Five hours later, it's almost dark, and no one has any idea where they are. Clarence looks behind some tall grass and it turns out that they've arrived at Sheep's Bridge. Joshua can't believe his eyes, and the kids start exploring. Clarence tells Joshua to find some matches, Joshua thinks that'll be impossible to find in the wild, but as soon as Clarence leaves to hunt an animal, a box of matches fall on Joshua's head, this makes Joshua start believing Clarence is magic.

Clarence tells the others that he found a hot tub. Joshua thinks Clarence has lost it, but there really is a hot tub there. Clarence and Percy goes inside the hot tub, and Jeff joins them, then Clarence tells Joshua to join in as well. Later, the four are still in the hot tub. Clarence looks up at the stars and talks about aliens in their hot tubs looking down at them, he thinks the aliens aren't having as much fun as they are,

He lost it....

Clarence asks Joshua if he agrees, but he doesn't respond, then Joshua starts going crazy and talking about how they can live at Sheep's Bridge. Joshua starts naming which areas will be what room. As he shows where the ballroom will be, he starts dancing and falls off a cliff. The kids see Joshua holding on the rocks, and they try and figure out how to save him. Percy suggests doing a human chain. Clarence thinks it's a good idea, and they start trying to reach Joshua, but Percy loses his grip and Clarence falls on Joshua.

Suddenly, Sumo and Nature Kate arrives and rescues Clarence and Joshua. Later, Nature Kate drives everyone home in her truck. Joshua tells Kate that he's not cut out for nature, so he thinks they should break up. Kate says that's great because she's already been seeing a guy named Damian, and didn't know how to tell him. All of a sudden, Sumo's goat bites one of Joshua's ears off and he starts freaking out, then the episode ends.

Episode Connection[]

Cultural References[]

  • Sheep's Bridge is a real-life place and there is a hidden hot spring, but it's not a hot tub. It is, however, covered by tall grass.
  • Clarence going "hoo hoo! hoo hoo!" while jumping around is a reference to the old 1930's Daffy Duck cartoons where he used to jump around yelling and screaming "hoo!" loudly.
  • The Bubble Transition could be a reference to the Spongebob Squarepants Transition. The sound can also be heard.
  • The Binto owned by Josh is said to be invincible by him. Ironically, its real life counterpart, the Ford Pinto, is notorious for exploding after getting rear ended. The car's reputation for exploding in a rear end collision killed several people, and injured many others soured with this claim. Ultimately, the company who made the Pinto was brought to court over murder, costing Ford money and reputation as well.
  • The part where Clarence, Jeff, Percy, and Josh walk to the trail. References the camping scene in the 1986 film Stand by Me, where Gordie, Chris, Teddy, and Vern walk in the woods to find camp. And Percy mimics the barf-o-rama.


The episode received a mixed to negative reception. It received negatively in claims of criticizing it for the character Joshua not receiving any luck and constantly getting hurt as a result of Clarence and his friends.
