Plot
  • This episode begins in the year 2045, where Klaus – who, inexplicably, has been returned to a human body – tells his grandson a bedtime story about his past: 300px|right Every winter, Stan, without explanation, becomes aloof and goes off by himself for entire days or nights which causes Francine to become depressed. She eventually decides to follow him through a secret passage in their bathroom guarded by traps and a knight. After following him to the surface, Francine finds Stan figure skating and confronts him. Stan explains that he once was a competitive figure skater but his over zealousness lead to his partner getting injured. As a result, he is afraid of skating with other people. However, Francine convinces him that skating can be a fun couples activity and Stan slowly begins to enjoy skating. Francine eventually enters herself and Stan in a contest which horrifies Stan. He tells Roger part of his backstory he didn't tell Francine: Due to his extreme competitiveness and despite his partner's injury, he continued his figure skating routine and then drove across the country with her to protest his poor score rather than take her to the hospital. Upon discovering the contest's prize is a set of wigs with which Roger wants to play, Roger convinces Stan that he and Francine should participate. Stan quickly becomes overly competitive with Francine and eventually dumps her as a partner in favor of Roger who turns out to be an excellent figure skater. At the competition, Stan sees a rather inept elderly couple who, despite their low score, are happy and enjoy each other causing Stan to realize that he should be skating with Francine. He rushes home, tranquilizes Francine and brings her to the rink. She wakes up with the two of them skating. The two argue as they do a flawless routine. They leave without seeing their score. 300px|left Meanwhile, Steve and his friends order binoculars but somehow receive a Russian mail-order bride instead. Hayley, however, convinces the woman to protect her interests and not do anything sexual with them until one of them marries her. The four boys hold a contest to decide who gets to marry her and Snot wins; however, at the wedding, Toshi, who learned Russian to woo her, makes an impassioned plea for her and she leaves Snot for him. Klaus then finishes his story. When his grandson asks if he was ever a shark, Klaus angrily replies that he was two sharks and a monkey before telling him to sleep.
