In the first episode, Rob and Big set out to adopt a bulldog puppy. Rob thought since it was basically made up of meat, they should just call him Meat Bag (or Meaty). They later use the puppy as bait to gather women for their party. Two ladies ask if they are homosexual after finding out that they live with each other. They laugh it off. The women later attend the party, where Rob hired the Academy Award winning group Three 6 Mafia to perform. While getting ready for the party Big has Rob shave his back. Big prepares a concoction containing Pepto Bismol, orange juice and possibly Pepsi to fight off any hangover that might occur.
