Mr. Slate calls Fred and Barney to his office and announces his retirement. He tells the boys that one of them will be his replacement at the quarry and become the Grand Poobah of the Loyal Order of the Water Buffalo Lodge. The boys misunderstand and think they are both being promoted. A cotillion is set up to celebrate Mr. Slate’s retirement. Also, there is a conflict with Pebbles, Bamm Bamm, and Rock Hardley. Pebbles is a senior at Prinstone University who happens to be interning at the William Morestone agency. She is in charge of hiring entertainment acts for the retirement party. Bamm Bamm is sick of his job flipping burgers at Bronto-King. He assumes he and his band are shoo-ins for the party since Pebbles is his girlfriend. However, there is tension because Pebbles is smitten with a rock star Rock Hardley. Hilarity ensues.
