Pepper persona by sending him a fake deployment notice from the US Military. After Roger runs off to clean latrines in Iraq as Sgt. Pepper, Klaus takes over and ends up driving the family apart by revealing their horrible secrets (Stan’s hatred of Francine’s food and habit of dumping it in a secret shaft full of ravenous wolves, Francine stealing Stan’s money to buy drugs, Steve using Greg and Terry as his alternate parents in order to score with a girl and avoid embarrassment, Hayley playing Ultimate Frisbee with someone else because of Jeff’s lack of athletic ability, and Jeff having a crush on Francine). Unable to control the outbursts he caused, Klaus opts to bring back Roger to help straighten out the issues. Roger then conveys all of Klaus’s suggestions to the Smiths about solving their issues and reminding the Smiths that Klaus needs to be taken seriously. Not like a pet fish.

Meanwhile, after seeing Stan’s dog on life support, Hayley and Jeff see a lawyer to plan out their last wishes and wills — and Hayley discovers that Jeff holds the rights to Blues Travelers’ first album master tapes, which he gave to the daughter of an old woman he married years ago.
