"When Homer is erroneously blamed for leaving Santa's Little Helper locked in a hot car, footage of the incident goes viral, outraging all of Springfield and making Homer a pariah."


At home, Marge is hurrying the family to eat their breakfast as Raphael brings home a vacuum cleaner for her to test and hurries them out, including the dog. Homer brings the kids at the Springfield Dog Park, but they want to visit the Boing-a-Torium Trampoline Park instead, leaving him and Santa's Little Helper alone.

When Santa's Little Helper helps Homer get out of joining a dog club with Lenny, Homer brings him to the Dairy Girls Ice Cream, leaving him in the car, however the dog starts moving around, closing the windows and removing the car keys. People start gathering around the car, noticing the situation, and when Homer gets out of the shop he gets attacked by the people for what they think he did.

The situation gets worse and worse, with him accidentally locking up the fireman's dalmatian in the truck too, till the kids return, injured, saying he forgot to pick them up. People start posting pictures of him on NeighborHub, passing by the news, while Marge admires how great she cleaned the house with the vacuum, but when she tries to post the pictures on Neighborhub she sees the news.

Homer says it'll blow over ignoring the issue but at church, the situation gets worse, so Lisa gives Homer a speech to use but he instead mocks them, and ends up pushing Reverend Lovejoy out of the glass window, injuring Lenny's dog's eye and angering people more, with them posting on Instasnap, making the news go around the whole city and world, and Mr. Burns terminates any association with him.

Moe's and Krusty Burger refuse to let him enter for confort and three weeks later, he finds himself alone in the house finding out Dead Lobster is having a Prawn-a-thon! and the family didn't invite him. He goes to the restaurant, where after confronting his family, he meets Theo who proposes to help him, having created The Institute to help find redemption.

Homer and Theo go to the Institute, where they meet Helen Lovejoy, Councilman Jed Hawk, Larry Doogan and Kirk Van Houten, which are all in a similar situation to his, and Theo proposes to do public acts of charity to fix their reputation.

They start by cleaning out the ocean, planting trees, cleaning up graffiti, and collecting trash, but bullies still throw trash at them, so Theo proposes them a more radical action, by using a universal eradication code that can scrub any traces of their action, but it needs to be connected to ChumNet to work, and they need to break into their headquarters to do it at ChumNet Island.

They all agree and using the skills they learned by doing their acts of charity, but after seeing the headlines they start falling for them. Homer is the only one to realize the trick and the others get trapped and gassed. Homer gets to the server room and inserts the flash drive in.

However, Homer finds out that they'd not be the only ones which records would be scrubbed, but lots of other people, and he stops the drive from injecting the code, ruining Theo's plan. Homer reads to the whole world the words for his apology written by Lisa effectively being forgiven, while at the Institute, Theo gets punished for his failure. Back at the Dead Lobster, the family finally has dinner together, eating prawns.
