Roger's Disguise: Boat owner from "The Life Aquatic With Steve Smith"


When Steve gets an 'F' in school, his parents appear to brush it off, but after he leaves, they become very afraid for his future. For a school project, he attempts a video presentation on Charles Lindbergh, but Stan takes it to the next level by acquiring a CIA sound stage and steals the original Spirit of St. Louis from the Smithsonian. He further takes liberties with historical accuracy to Steve's frustration, and tops it off by insisting that he doesn't have the abilities to do the presentation on his own. At the film premier, Stan has turned it into an action film starring Vin Diesel as Steve watches in disgust, but when Stan tries to present Steve as the 'creator' of the project, he has vanished, taking the original Spirit, and attempts to recreate Lindbergh's flight on his own.


As he struggles to fly the plane, Stan catches up in a CIA flight and leaps aboard the Spirit. As they struggle for control of the aircraft, Steve vents his frustration in Stan never allowing him to do things his way. As they reconcile, they lament in not being able to reach Paris just as the Eiffel Tower appears, giving hope that they really did make it. Determined to let Steve finish what he had started, Stan bails out just when Steve could use a hand in landing. On the ground, Stan watches the plane come in and smash into the ground, leading him to believe that Steve has died in the crash as he parachutes in as well. Pleased that he still made it to Paris, Stan informs him that they are really near an amusement park in the United States.


Meanwhile, Klaus dreams of wearing clothes again and when his new shoes fail to show up, it leaves him in tears. He employs Hayley to track them down. Trying a house on the opposite end of the street with a matching number, the owner denies having Klaus' shoes, but when Hayley spies a missing doormat that she ordered, they burst in with guns drawn. They tie up the homeowner and attempt to force the truth out of him, to no avail. They also try to get him to open a locked closet that he denies having the key to. Frustrated, Klaus shoots open the door, revealing another man tied up inside. Before they can make note of this, Hayley gets a call from Jeff telling her that Klaus' package was in the bushes at the house and she also admits that perhaps she didn't really buy the doormat either. As they depart, the man they tied up frees himself and gives an evil look, as the camera shows an outer view of the house, claiming the man in the closet was really a murderer and no one to be concerned with.
