Tom, Annie & Paul try to get ideas of how to celebrate their parents wedding anniversary. Annie reads in the paper that former rock star Chops Dorfman is appearing in town to shoot a movie. Paul gets the idea to get Chops to perform since he was a famous rocker in his parents days. Paul visits Chops @ the hotel he's staying. He spots him & hides in the limo. When Chops discovers him, he stops the limo while Paul explains everything. Paul also hires a garage band (Jake & The Pharos) to play for the anniversary as well. But the band's instruments get repossessed. When Tom makes instruments out of everyday objects, the band bails out just as Mom & Dad arrive. Just as things look bleak, the doorbell rings & Paul's surprised that it's Chops Dorfman himself. He plays the guitar & sings a tune while the kids back him up on junk instruments.
Lance gets Tom, Annie & Paul to participate in a bowling tournament & are known as the Weston Strikers! In each team, there's a pro or league bowler, two amateurs & a junior member. Four teams participate & The Weston Strikers along with the Roll & Bowl Bombers make it to the finals, two games; one on each home alley. In the deciding game, Lance's game has gone bad & thinks that his missing lucky locket is causing his losing streak. Then Annie notices that the bowling balls are all greased up. So she goes to Lance's car to get some sunglasses. She shows Tom & Lance that their lane is all oiled up causing a strike to be impossible to make. The four told the rival owner what he did & then asked the referee to change lanes (from lane 12 to lane 13). The Weston Strikers make a comeback to win the tournament (when Paul converts the 7-10 split). They donate the prize money to the owner of Lance's favorite bowling alley so he could remodel the place.
