When the children discover that their father is not at his old job anymore, they begin to worry it might be their fault.
The kids are driving to the IT office where their father works, because he was so preoccupied making everyone breakfast sandwiches, he forgot to bring his laptop. Leni grabs the laptop, and heads into the office, where she mistakes a different employee for Lynn Sr. The employee informs Leni that Lynn Sr. doesn't work here anymore, and has been gone for three weeks. Leni breaks the news to the rest of her siblings, and come to the conclusion that he was fired because of their antics the last time he brought them to work during "Take Your Kids To Work Day". After tracking down Lynn Sr. with a tracking chip Lisa planted in both of their parents (and the other siblings), the kids discover he's now a dishwasher at a restaurant called Aloha Comrade. The siblings come to the conclusion that because of their rambunctious behavior, they only succeed in making their father's life worse. Lincoln suggests that they get him a new and better job, to which the sisters agree to.
At the house, the siblings are thinking of suggestions on what occupation would be great for their father. After several ideas are shot down, Lisa informs them that their father has only one skill: information technology (IT). Lincoln, who's looking through the want ads in the newspaper, finds an opening for a computer expert needed for Internet startup. The sisters agree with this, and Lori fills in the application form on the computer, and sends it off. Sometime later, they get a notification on the computer that reads that the IT company likes Lynn Sr.'s application, and have him scheduled for an interview. However, the siblings fear that he might not be suited enough for the interview, so Lincoln suggests that they pose as their father, so they can get the job for him without his knowledge.
Lori, Lincoln, and Luan all try to be Lynn Sr., so they can pose as him for the upcoming interview. However, all three fail miserably due to their habits (Lori getting a call from Bobby, Lincoln stripping off all his clothes, and Luan pulling off a prank). As they think of who call pull off a good Lynn Sr. impression, they hear Mr. Grouse talking to himself in a mockingly manner. They ask Mr. Grouse if he can pose as Lynn Sr. for an upcoming interview, but he refuses. However, he decides to do so, when he's promised two dishes of Lynn Sr.'s lasagna. After a fair amount of training on how to get Mr. Grouse to properly operate a computer (which starts out rough), the siblings manage to successfully get Mr. Grouse to know the ins and outs of a computer. They then test Mr. Grouse by having Luna dressed as an IT customer and give him a laptop to fix, which he successfully does so and they send him on his way for the interview. Sometime later, Mr. Grouse arrives back from the interview, and at first seems disappointed, but then excitedly says that he got the job, much to the siblings' happiness.
The next morning, Lynn Sr. is prepared to leave, when suddenly, the siblings pop out of the car, and volunteer to drive him to his job. They drive off to the new office, and the siblings reveal that they got him a new IT job because he got fired from his previous one. However, Lynn Sr. reveals that he wasn't fired, he quit, because he gets to pursue his dream job of becoming a chef, and says that he's required to do dishes first. Lynn Sr. orders to get dropped off to Aloha Comrade's, but the siblings also reveal they also got him fired from the job (due to Lola giving an angry rant to the restaurant owner over the phone). Realizing their errors, the siblings decide to get their father his dishwashing job back.
After arriving to Aloha Comrade's, Sergei, who's revealed to be the restaurant owner, is under stress due to doing all the work. The Loud family arrives, and practically beg Sergei to give Lynn Sr. his job back, due to his firing being a big misunderstanding. Unfortunately, Sergei doesn't re-hire him, due to getting a rude phone call, and not being able to handle the breakfast rush hour. The siblings confess, saying that it's their fault that their father doesn't have his job anymore, and proclaim that the only thing they ever do is make his life worse. Lynn Sr., however, says that they don't make his life worse, they make it better, and states that he can look for a new job. Touched by their father's words, the siblings engage in a group hug, and Sergei, who's touched by how much Lynn Sr. loves his children, decides to re-hire him, leading to the kids cheering. As Lola cheers, Sergei realizes her voice is the one that delivered the angry rant the previous day, causing him to back away in fear, which leads him to trip on a plate, and fall into a pile of dirty dishes, fracturing his cooking arm. Lisa states that he'll need three weeks to recover, causing Sergei to announce that he's temporarily closing the restaurant so he can recover. The siblings decide to help out, so they can keep the restaurant open.
As Sergei sits out, Lynn Sr., Lincoln, Luna, Luan, Lynn, Lucy, Lana, Lola, and Lisa help out in the kitchen, while Lori and Leni take the customer's orders. Lori and Leni announce that the customers love Lynn Sr.'s cooking, and Sergei, who's impressed with Lynn Sr.'s skills, decides to promote him to co-chef, much to his and the kids' happiness. After Lynn Sr. and Sergei leaves, the kids all fight for Sergei's unfinished breakfast sandwich.
Meanwhile, Mr. Grouse, who's now taking over Lynn Sr.'s IT job, is instructed to log off the computer he's using, but instead of logging off, he grabs an actual log and smashes the computer, which indicates the siblings never taught him how to properly log off.
