Earl wants to make up for ruining Mother's Day so many times. Unfortunately, he and his dad don't get along. At all. Earl decides to ignore this and, with Randy, give his mother the best Mother's Day ever. However, his mother asks him to do something for his father, and because he wants to please his mother, Earl feels he has to do this. Together with Randy, he decides to get back his dad's Mustang he once lost in a race. When Earl tells his dad (whom he'd always told he'd driven the car in a lake) about his plan, his dad tells him the car was meant for him. This places Earl in an awkward predicament: He himself is now a person that needs to be crossed off his list!
