One morning, Richard struggles to cram his trash bag into his overfilled trash can. After several failed attempts, he tries to sneak the trash bag into his neighbor's can, then Mr. Robinson suddenly pops out, catching him in the act. He refuses to share his can with Richard, who claims that can isn't his property. They get into a squabble, until Richard accidentally punches Mr. Robinson, who then promptly gets into a fistfight with him.
Doughnut Sheriff places both men under house arrest, with ankle trackers attached. Richard and Mr. Robinson explain their situation to their respective families, blaming each other for their arrest. Afterwards, Richard asks Gumball and Darwin to pull a prank on Mr. Robinson.
