Plot: Red announces that there was an accident on the highway involving a truck that spilled a supply of El Toro-brand hamburgers. Harold thinks Red was at fault for this, but then Dalton comes in to say that this accident has resulted in traffic being rerouted past the lodge. Red decides to capitalize on the accident by selling the hamburgers to the motorists as they pass by. They set up a drive-thru and Harold starts working for this new restaurant, not only serving the food, but also having built the speaker box, done in Red's likeness, but which promptly malfunctions. Eventually, however, the drive-thru gets shut down, in part because the accident has been cleared away and the highway reopens, so the traffic no longer has to pass by the lodge. Even worse, it turns out that the hamburgers they sold were really cattle feed.
