At Town Hall, the citizens of Elmore are chanting “Go, Wattersons, go!”, which Richard waves nervously to. The Mayor offers the Wattersons a new house, but it turns out that the Mayor was protecting the citizens from the Wattersons, which the latter explains as the citizens angrily trying to kick the Wattersons out of Elmore.
Back at home, the family is shocked that their new house is in a different state. In order to stay in Elmore, they decide to become model citizens. They help Marvin move a grandfather clock, but they’re actually end up dropping the clock onto the ground. At school, Anais helps Jared answer a question by forming herself with letters to spell the word “Shakespeare,” which annoys Mr. Corneille.
The Wattersons succeed in becoming model citizens, but suddenly they turn into human characters, and Darwin turns into a dog. They receive a call from the mayor to come to his office. At the mayor’s office, it turns out the main reason why he wants to get rid of the Wattersons is that he wants to sell Elmore, which disappoints the family. On the way home, they turn back into their original anthromorphic forms. They then decides to sabotage the sale by turning Elmore into a disaster area.
Gumball and Darwin destroy a house with termites, while Mr. Small acts like a dog and bites Martin in the butt. Richard plants radiation liquid in Harold’s front yard, which turns him into a mutated caterpillar. The boys attempt to break a window, but no avail. Cartax wrecks the street with daggared rocks. Darwin destroys a house’s grass and tree with weed killer. On the sidewalk, Anais draws a dead person, lays an axe down on the ground, and whistles as she walks away. Nicole takes a wheel off a car and passes it to Richard. He tosses it into a burning tire pile, making the Sun cough, Mrs. Jötunheim fall to the ground, and himself pass out. In an alley, Gumball convinces Sal Left Thumb to mug people in the neighborhood with a bat, which he beats him up with and mugs his wallet from him. With a finishing touch, Nicole drops a match on a trail of oil, setting it on fire and destroying several houses in the process.
The next day at Town Hall, which is also damaged, the mayor is displeased that the Wattersons scared the rich people away, but Gumball declares that Elmore is not for sale. The mayor then realizes the lesson of all this is more valuable than money. However, he then laughs constantly, which annoys Nicole, declaring that the decent and honest people of Elmore will thank them for saving the city. Unfortunately, the whole Watterson family gets punished by the angry citizens, pelting them with tomatoes, ending the episode.
