Dr. Brainstorm and Jack go over to Calvin's house. Andy walks up and tells Jack that Calvin went to the Oregon Coast. Dr. Brainstorm overhears this, and powers up the rocket. On the island, Dad asks who ate all the food, and Calvin says he and Hobbes ate it. They have no choice but to go to shore and get groceries. They stop by a local Safeway.

He then takes Hobbes to the cruise ship, and ditches his parents, who are arguing over peanut butter. Calvin and Hobbes teleport onto the ship and explore.

Calvin imagines a Spaceman Spiff fantasy as he plays on the gangways above the theater. He meets up with Hobbes at an Italian restaurant. Later, they get backrubs in front of some cartoons. Then they have a philosophical discussion on the hull of the ship. Suddenly, something big rocks the ship. Then they see a strange being and are freaked out.
Andy, Sherman, Socrates, and MTM are scanning for Calvin and succeed. They pull out the box and venture out to sea.

Dr. Brainstorm distracts him, and they meet up with the others. After analyzing what happened, they decide to draw attention, and teleport to the pool, which is spotless. They wait for the person behind the bubble dimension to show up. Then it shows up, and they are beamed into a strange place. Rupert and Earl appear and Rupert starts to shoot them.
After deflecting their shots with the MTM, Andy forces Rupert and Earl to confess. When he refuses, the gang teleports to the ship. Then they are stopped by Rupert and Earl, and they confess about their plan and putting shock collars on the crew. The gang teleports to the engine room, and they discuss Rupert's plan. Then Hobbes appears, and Socrates hurls a water balloon at him. They escape. Hobbes prepare for kill, but a strange voice stops him. He ignores it and gives chase. Dr. Brainstorm and MTM run into Jack, and they plan to get Calvin and Hobbes back to normal. Rupert appears and fires, but the three teleport away, leaving the blast to hit a wall of the ship, causing it to start to sink.
The gang reunites, and MTM finds a way out of the bubble dimension. Then they scan for Calvin and Hobbes, and find them in the library. Then Calvin and Hobbes start to fight. The ship sinks quicker. Then a huge wave appears. Hobbes manages to stay on the ship, but Calvin gets flung into the water. The gang panics, and then Hobbes hears the strange voice again, and it kicks in. He saves Calvin, but he is barely unconscious. Dr. Brainstorm performs CPR, and Calvin regains consciousness. Rupert and Earl wonder when the ship will sink and revenge on Calvin. The gang recaps so far. Biff (Tom DeLonge) walks by, and Calvin offers a proposition that if Biff pretends to miss the gang, they'll get the shock collars removed. Calvin, Hobbes, and Biff pretend to have a game of cat and mouse. The rest of the crew does the same thing. Calvin turns the box into a submarine, but they are stopped by Rupert and Earl. Rupert prepares to shoot, but Calvin is smiling.
Rupert abandons the shot, and Calvin asks who he is really. Before Rupert can answer, the ship starts to rock, because the sea monster has returned. Jack's nanobots take the shock collars off. The gang enters the submarine and they float away. However, the sea monster gives pursuit. Back on the ship, Tim (Maynard James Keenan) suggests they go home, and the cloaking device and bubble dimension disappear. The aliens start a new plan.
