Synopsis


It's couples night at the movies, and Bill mopes around because he doesn't want to be a ninth wheel. He reluctantly agrees to tag along, but only for the food. Bill amazes the gang by wolfing down numerous hot dogs in a snap, prompting everyone to debate whether to call the Guinness Book of World Records to find out if he set a new record.

An IFOCE (the NFL of competitive eating) groupie encourages Bill to sign up for the big contest. She is convinced that Bill is capable of breaking the Japanese team�s long winning streak in the contest, but Dale openly doubts Bill's chances.

At the qualifying event, Dale mocks Bill, prompting Bill to retort that Dale is jealous. To prove him wrong, Dale scarfs down a hot dog in no time, leaving a dejected Bill to question his own talent. Dale finally admits that he is embarrassed by his own talent because it brings back a memory from his childhood when bullies taunted him. Dale decides not to compete after acknowledging that the painful memory caused him to give Bill a hard time. But when Bill competes against a Laotian guy, with Kahn wholeheartedly supporting the Laotian, Bill realizes that he must stop or risk busting his gut.

Hank says it's OK; the United States doesn't need to win everything. Dale exacts his revenge by polishing off a hot dog at the airport as the Laotian guys, who are sick of hot dogs, walk by. Meanwhile, Peggy tries to hide the contest from Bobby because she doesn't want him to participate.
