The episode starts off with Todomatsu and Karamatsu at a fishing place, Todomatsu asks his brother why he always acts cool. Karamatsu responds that he's just being normal. Todomatsu opposes, and asks why would Karamatsu wear embarrassing flashy pants to a fishing place, but he also reminds him that Choromatsu told him to look for a job. Karamatsu responds in saying that he has no plans to work, and takes off his sunglasses and throws it in the water.

Todomatsu asks why he did that, and Karamatsu responds with: "I didn't catch any." Todomatsu then asks what bait he is using, Karamatsu then shows him that he's using a love letter; calming that he fell in love with a fish. Todomatsu says that he too doesn't want to work either.

As he wonders what to now, he notices a man standing on top of the factory, he asks the man what kind of product the factory makes; the man responds saying that he won't say what they make and that it's something illegal and demands the sextuplets to get to work right away.
