When Milo is rummaging through the attic, he finds a boombox. When his parents find out they say he is ready for the Murphy rite of passage. He goes camping with his father and grandfather in Dead Man Gulch. When they park the map gets burned by Grandpa's glasses, they improvise and find a new spot. Unknown to them, the secret agents have lost track of a cyborg bear in the same area as them. Later, Martin urges Milo to go into some bushes where he thinks his father is hiding in costume, but he shows up seconds after Milo goes into the bush, only to come out with Diogee. As they bond, the cyborg bear sneaks up behind them and the agents retake it.
Meanwhile, Sara, Brigette and Grandma are relaxing in the backyard when they decide to go to the art museum. Doof decides to tagalong and he is unimpressed with the art. He unintentionally hits a statue of a centaur with a toilet for a head with an inator and it becomes animated, he tries to stop it but hits other works. He is pinned to the wall by a sculpture and Grandma takes the inator and successfully deanimates the works of art.
