8 Simple Rules - Plot summary - Netflix

When Peter goes to the pharmacy to buy condoms and some Excedrin, he realizes he has forgotten his wallet. Mort Goldman, the pharmacist, offers to open a tab for him. Peter quickly begins spending unnecessarily (misunderstanding the concept of a tab). For instance, he buys eight cases of ipecac so he can hold a vomiting contest with Brian, Chris, and Stewie; although Chris technically wins, all four continue to vomit explosively and violently in a scene lasting 56 seconds. Soon, Mort calls in Peter's debt of $34,000. In desperation, Peter seizes upon a picture of Mort's son Neil, who is infatuated with Meg. Peter offers to sell Meg to the Goldmans to settle the bill, offering a contract; Mort agrees, but everyone is shocked to discover that Neil has started dating another girl named Cecilia. Meg becomes unexpectedly jealous and hunts desperately for a boyfriend to make Neil jealous; she ends up settling for Jake Tucker, who only wants her to buy him some BB's. She finally tells Neil that she wants to be his girlfriend and signs the original contract to prove her sincerity; the Goldmans quickly put her to work as a slave, putting on Neil's pajamas and plowing a field in their front yard. Brian finds a clause in the contract stating that it is null and void if Neil cheats on Meg, so Peter convinces Lois to dress as Mystique and seduce him at a fake X-Men convention. Neil tells Meg that he only wants her to be with him if she wants to be with him, tears up the contract, and quickly reconciles with his previous girlfriend. Meg's relief quickly gives way to renewed jealousy. Meanwhile, after Meg had complained that she was tired of babysitting Stewie while Peter and Lois went out, Lois interviews candidates for a new babysitter. Stewie instantly falls in love with Liddane, an attractive young applicant. Liddane already has a boyfriend named Jeremy, however, and in a jealous rage, Stewie clubs him with a tire iron, ties him up, duct tapes his mouth shut, and locks him in the trunk of Brian's car. After Liddane refuses to let Stewie touch her breast, he drugs her and tells Lois that she invited friends over and that they were doing drugs. Lois dismisses Liddane, who departs after giving Stewie a mixtape. Stewie regrets his actions and pursues her, but she has disappeared. Two weeks later, Meg babysits Stewie again, then he realizes that he forgot to release Jeremy from Brian's trunk, and mildly assumes that he is dead, without much remorse.
