As Donna sleeps, Cleveland almost slips off to work before she awakes to avoid getting laid off. At Waterman Cable, Mr. Waterman announces that anyone volunteering to be laid off gets six months severance pay and Cleveland takes the offer. When he returns home and tells Donna, happy to have six months pay without working, she tells him of a long list of chores he can do while home. Reversing time, he keeps her from her list by simply pointing out he was laid off. As he pretends to search for a job, he takes the guys out. To satisfy the job search, he asks if people need help he is unqualified for and comes pretending to be tried from pounding the pavement. Donna tries to rally the family and takes a second job at the airport without telling Cleveland. Cleveland soon finds he is broke while hanging out with his friends and spots Donna working a third job. Cleveland tries to escape before being seen and is caught not out job hunting as promised but pretends to commit suicide since he can't find a job. ..
