In the first half of this special one hour episode, Earl and Randy face problems in their quest to do #269 Got Catalina deported, but Earl's fear of flying causes unforeseen problems. Hopefully Randy would also get a chance to win Catlina's heart. Meanwhile, Joy's friendly attitude causes the neighbors to get closer and Darnell doesn't like it at all.
Catalina got deported back to Mexico when it was revealed that she was an illegal immigrant in the United States. Earl blamed his gambling as the reason she was caught. He and Randy are preparing to take their first plane ride to Mexico to rescue Catalina!
Joy had been taking pills in order to relax for court. She was a new woman. Earl and Randy weren't even able to recognize her with her new attitude. She even loaned Earl her luggage for their big trip. Darnell missed Joy's feisty side, especially when it came to their annoying neighbors.
Randy and Earl were surprised to learn that they needed to get passports to go to Mexico. Earl was having a difficult time keeping his eyes open for the picture. So, Randy put a picture of eyes over Earl's eyelids in order to make the photo work.
Randy and Earl were on their first plane ride. Earl had all types of questions for the flight attendant and he was annoying other passengers. He ended up getting himself and Randy kicked off the flight and then had to find another way to get to Mexico. Earl decided to see a doctor for a sedative to calm his flying fears.
When Earl's sedatives wore off while they were on the plane, he and Randy were forced to leave once again. They had no choice but to take the bus to Mexico in order to rescue Catalina. At the bus stop, Earl wanted to get a taco, but Randy was too afraid of missing the bus. He tackled Earl and the two began to fight and Randy persisted to drag him onto the bus.
Earl realized how much Randy loved Catalina and got on the bus. Before the bus could drive away, a man with a gun got on board and kidnapped Earl. The bus drove away and Earl was left with two men armed with guns.
