Plot synopsis

In this episode, Mrs. Garrison pairs off the kids in her class and assigns them to care for eggs as if they were babies as part of a lesson in parenting responsibility. Stan is worried he will get paired with his ex-girlfriend, Wendy, whom he has not spoken to since their breakup. However, Wendy is assigned to Kyle while Stan is paired with Bebe. The assignments cause tension, as Stan starts to suspect Kyle of having designs on Wendy while Bebe is angry at Stan's indifference to their egg.

Meanwhile, Mrs Garrison, having been watching Stan, is reminded of her old boyfriend, Mr. Slave, who broke up with her after the sex change operation. Mrs Garrison attempts to take Mr. Slave back, only to learn that Mr. Slave is planning to marry Big Gay Al as soon as the Colorado governor legalizes such unions. Mrs. Garrison dedicates herself to doing whatever she can to prevent their union from being legalized, hoping that, being unable to marry Al, Mr. Slave will then marry her.

The governor demands a study demonstrating that gay families are unstable before agreeing to veto the marriage bill. Mrs. Garrison thus reorganizes Stan, Kyle, Wendy and Bebe into same-sex couples, hoping that Stan's poor "parenting" skills will destroy the egg and provide the results the governor needs.

Wendy becomes upset because Stan and Kyle now have the egg that originally belonged to her and Kyle. The boys remain on bad terms; Stan is still suspicious about Kyle's motives with Wendy and frequently snaps at him, while Kyle is a little confused as to what has made Stan so aggressive. Cartman breaks his egg and tries to ask Mrs Garrison to give his partner an A, because it was not her fault—and finally arguing that with his F, together their grades should average out to C-. But Garrison is so bent on the gay marriage law to be vetoed, she gives Cartman a new egg. Garrison makes plans for the final egg check in front of the governor's office, and, to make sure Stan and Kyle's egg is broken when they present it, hires an assassin to destroy the egg. Just as Stan is boasting to Kyle over the phone about how well he has looked after the egg, the assassin shoots it and blows it to pieces in his hand.

Stan tells Kyle to enjoy a relationship with Wendy. However, Kyle admits that he, fearing Stan's ability as a parent, gave him a fake egg and saved the real egg. He also tells Stan that he had no interest in Wendy, he merely views her as a partner. The two boys reconcile and rush to the governor's office, telling Mrs. Garrison that their egg is fine and they are on their way. She orders the assassin to try and get the egg before it reaches the podium. The assassin, fearing for his reputation, opens fire on the crowd to destroy the egg. The boys rush through the crowd, narrowly avoiding the assassin's gunfire. They reach the podium weary and hurt. Stan presents the egg to Mrs. Garrison. The governor signs the bill and same-sex marriage is legalized in Colorado.

The episode concludes with Mr. Slave and Big Gay Al marrying with Father Maxi officiating. Randy congratulates Stan and Kyle for what they have done for gay marriage rights, although they are still not sure what role they played in it. Wendy tells Stan that she was impressed by parenting skills, but Stan responds by saying that he does not "give a crap" about what she thinks and walks away.
