Plot

Blood Gulch is in the grip of an unusual heatwave and, not having air conditioning, Church and his friends are suffuring.

Church learns of an upcoming lady's man show offering a top prize of $500, which he sees as a perfect way to buy an air conditioner. He persuades a reluctant Tucker to participate. After Tucker perfroms his tricks at the show, Church puts a calamar puff on Tucker's nose. Tucker refuses to "perpetuate the stereotype of the 'good lady's Man.'" Tucker refuses to do anything so degrading and exits in a huff.

On the way home, Church and Tucker argue until, finally, an angry Tucker gets out of the car. The police gives Tucker a ticket for violating the local pants law, which Church has to pay, only further widening their rift. Tucker leaves the house, whereupon he is treated shabbily by the community, and ultimately forced to sleep at the bus station. By the time Church decides to apologize to Tucker, Tucker has hit rock bottom, having actually attacked a man on the street and been hauled off by the police.

At the pound, Tucker is sentenced to a lethal injection. But when he finally gets the chance to plead his case, it's Church who actually steps in and delivers an emotional appeal on his behalf. The charges against Tucker are finally waived and the town shows hime new respect.
