Roger's Disguise: Canadian Mountie from "The One That Got Away"

Plot: Roger and Francine plan a day of shopping while Stan is doing a stakeout. When they are mugged, Roger feels insecure about his manhood and joins the Langley Falls Police Academy. Things go poorly at first, but when Roger receives advice from Stan to give up, Roger admits he wishes he could be a real man like Stan and he helps him succeed in becoming a police officer. Roger does so well, he comes under the eye of crooked cop Chaz Migliaccio who soon teaches Roger how to take advantage of his position. Stan quickly observes Roger's actions and confronts him, telling him that Roger is acting dishonorably. Roger responds that he now feels like he has all the power he lacked before and likes it. Stan decides to turn Roger in as a dirty cop but Chaz gets word and orders Roger to take out Stan. He turns to find Stan he responds that he didn't give away the tape of Roger's activities because of Roger's original intention to be a good cop.

Later with Chaz, Roger tries to break away but finds Chaz has captured Stan and orders Roger to kill him. Roger tries to turn the tables but Chaz was ready for him and shoots Roger. Roger leads him on a chase, climbing up a rope, and then in an act of desperation, jumps down and pile drives Chaz on the head with his elbow, causing Chaz's head to explode from the impact, killing him (which Roger notes was unexpected).

Ian Rhonda

Meanwhile, Hayley apologizes to Reginald for coming on to him in The Return of the Bling and suggests a double date with Ian and Rhonda. On their date, Hayley and Reginald flirt much to their date's annoyance. Later at a movie theater, Hayley and Reginald share secret thoughts of being together despite their separate love lives. When Reginald reveals he broke up with Rhonda, Hayley responds that she also broke up with Ian and Reginald suggests a date that Hayley accepts. After Reginald leaves, Hayley calls Ian and breaks up with him.
