The show begins as two fresh out of high school graduates find jobs at a small hotdog joint in a local mall food court run by a man with a nasty attitude.
Mr. Hut gives Laz, Lily and Fred their jobs back, even after they intentionally deep fried everything in his office. They soon realize they can trade corndogs with other mall businesses for free things like tanning sessions and pedicures. Meanwhile, Molly is sad to discover that Jasper (who she thought she was going on a date with) has a girlfriend.
When a seafood restaurant moves into the mall across from Yippie's that sings to their customers, Yippie's begins to lose it's customers. Laz and Lily scheme up a crazy plot to shut them up and shut them down but are shocked when they find out Fred has joined the other side after feeling lonely and neglected by Laz. Meanwhile, Molly is having trouble staying friends with Jasper after meeting his girlfriend.
Molly defies her German teacher with Laz's support. The defiance has unexpected consequences however. Fred advises Mr. Hut to stand up to his wife.
Fred begins to like a girl who works in the mall but is told he cannot go out with her because she works in a store where the employee's only date employee's from the athletic stores. Meanwhile, Lily begins to feel depressed after she is mocked by a group of mall employee's.
After being rejected by Lily, Laz lets Fred set him up with a friend of his older girlfriend. Meanwhile, Molly has to bribe Gus into taking the blame for her mistake by buying him highly caffeinated beverages.
Laz asks out another woman in order to make Lily jealous but realizes his date has a major flaw. Meanwhile, Molly expects cash from her parents after catching them in a lie.
Laz, Lily and Fred hope to win a car contest in the mall. They have to hold their hand against the car for as long as they can. The last person standing wins the car. Meanwhile Molly realizes her parents are planning a surprise party and tries to make it very clear she doesn't want one.
Laz suffers an embarrassing incident after being run over by Molly during a driving lesson, so he decides to sit in a tank of crabs to prove his manhood.
Molly messes up big time when she goes to meet Jasper's parents. Meanwhile, Lily and Laz begin to find each others nightime habits a bit annoying.
Lily decides to better herself by taking up self defense classes. She invites Laz and Fred to come but instead they blow her off and go to a Beastie Boys concert.
