When the pilots go on strike, Quagmire finds himself on the picket line. When he finds a bachelorette party in progress, the cash the girls toss at him inspire him to take up stripping. After excusing himself from a night with the guys, they follow and discover that he is working in a strip club. When Peter accuses him of having sex for money, he denies it until some ladies actually do offer him cash for sex. Continuing to have sex with women, he is stiffed by a customer. When Peter picks him up as he has no cash for a ride, Peter intervenes and gets his money for him. After Quagmire gives him a cut for helping him out, they agree to let Peter be his pimp. But when Peter's continuous bookings wear him out, he tries to take a break but is rebuffed by Peter.
He continues to push Quagmire to put out while abusing him and forces him to take on repulsive customers. When he runs into a customer who wants to do “German things”, Peter is forced to intervene and realizes the trouble Quagmire has been experiencing and gets him to agree to just be friends. While hoping that the strike would end soon so he may resume work as a pilot, Peter reveals that the strike had ended a month previously, but had sent the news to the wrong e-mail address.
Meanwhile, Brian finds out that he is no longer covered by Peter's health insurance so he is forced to get a job of his own. After he gets a job at Mega Hardware, his personality changes into that of a handyman without the skill to back it up. At work, he blows off the customers and annoys his co-workers with the same attitude. Back at home, Brian's insufferably annoys Stewie who sets out to get him fired. He picks up a loan of Hispanic handymen and grills them for tips on getting the job done. He plants a shaken-up can of soda with Brian's name on it for the boss which ends up in the desired result. Brian confronts him and demands that he admit what he did, but attempting to lift him ruptures a hernia of his and Stewie is forced to operate. Giving instructions, he does demonstrate working knowledge of tools, which impresses Stewie.
