When Peter discovers that Tom Tucker played the role of Michael Myers in Halloween IV, he finds out about Tom's failed Hollywood career. Peter offers to take him to Hollywood to try to rekindle the dream but Tom rejects the idea until an inane news story makes him reconsider. In Hollywood, Peter poses as Tom's agent and they manage to land a role in NCIS. While they celebrate back in their room, Peter receives word of a new client only to discover it's James Woods. James explains that his previous death was negated by being a celebrity and receiving top notch medical care which involved the sacrifice of a young girl. Dazzled by getting to represent a real celebrity, Peter dumps Tom as his client but Woods turns out to be high-maintenance himself and dumps Peter in return. Peter confronts Tom about his mistake and they agree to head back home where Tom is able to get his job back.
Meanwhile, Chris meets Lindsey, a girl who looks disturbingly like Lois. When he introduces her to the family, only Brian and Stewie seem to recognize the similarity while Lois compliments her on her looks without making a connection. Lindsey soon begins to show some character flaws but Lois brushes them off until she spots Lindsey making out with another guy while out for coffee with Bonnie. Forced to tell Chris what she saw, Chris admits he already knows about Lindsey's habits but admits that because she is so much like Lois, he feels it's his only chance to find a girl who would love a guy like him back. Lois tells him that he will indeed find real love one day and takes the parental lock off his computer.
