The students of Springfield Elementary School head for a field trip to the Springfield Glacier. Unfortunately, the glacier has melted heavily, and Lisa blames the melt on global warming, as a ranger tries to shut her up. Bart torments her as Lisa desperately asks the students to save the glacier, to no success. Meanwhile, while Homer and Marge go shopping at the Sprawl-Mart, Grampa loses his people greeting abilities and wants Homer to succeed him as the people greeter. Homer does a successful job of being the new people greeter that the manager says Homer can get a full time position without any form of advancement.

The next day, Lisa gets a restraining order filed against Bart. Under the order, according to Chief Wiggum, Bart is forced to be twenty feet away from Lisa at all times, or he will face more legal consequences. Wiggum shows the family a Gary Busey-hosted videotape, "Get Out of My Dreams and Also Out of My Car: A Guide to Your Restraining Order", which teaches Bart how to live with a restraining order. To make the restraining order more fun, Homer makes a 20 foot pole that can be used to keep them apart easier, but it actually impacts Bart's life at home and school. Marge appeals in court to get the restraining order removed. Bart testifies that Lisa has no sense of humor, but Judge Constance Harm only increases the restraining order to 200 feet. Bart can now only live at the edge of the Simpson family property.

When he lives at the edge of the property, Bart takes a look at nature and embraces it. At Sprawl-Mart, Homer is forced to work overtime without being paid, and he cannot leave the store, and so he lobbies the employees at Sprawl-Mart to shut the store down, but they insist that they have learned to accept the things they cannot change and steal whatever is not nailed down, and Homer leaves the store on his own, (along with several plasma TVs). Bart, still in the backyard, still having great fun, makes a wicker statue of Lisa. She actually likes it so much, she forgives him, and as it is burning, she throws the restraining order and the pole Homer made into the fire.
