After hearing Pamhouser brag about her sexual exploits, Angie feels that she has missed out on enjoying the single lifestyle. Past Angie is summoned to The Drunken Hoosier on a false alarm, and she grants Angie's wish by sending her (along with Heather) back to 1986 for one night. Appearing to others as her 16-year-old self, Angie cancels her scheduled movie date to see Tron with Frank Willis (who did not transition to Ava), instead accepting an invitation from Stephanie to go and party at a nightclub. Angie enjoys the evening, and ends up making out with Indianapolis sportscaster Mark Patrick, when Past Angie appears to return her to the present. Back in the present day, Angie then discovers that her past actions have had drastic effects on the world; she and Mark Patrick have been married for 20 years, Frank Willis is married to Anna Pamhouser, Sarah Palin is president instead of former U.S. President Barak Obamha; Tom, Deanna, Emilie, Hillary, Luanne, Stuart, Brian, and Ron have Pamhouser's chin, nose, and mannerisms, Joe Biden, who is just known as the chairman of Halliburton, has just shot dead by snipers, and finally, Tavis Smiley is the host of The Late Show. Heather explains to Angie that by missing out on her date with Frank and making out with Mark, she altered the time line. At the end of the episode (with Ava herself), Angie says "I'm just glad everything is back to normal" and then Joyce the Cow from Hoosier Anchorwoman! walks in and says "Who ate all the butter pecan ice cream?"
