The episode opens in a hotel room, where the Duncans are occupying after "the worst day in Duncan Family History." Teddy, while recording her video diary, then starts to explain what happened a week earlier.
Teddy learns that Spencer was admitted to a performing arts school in Boston, but was also early admission. Spencer is unsure whether to go given his relationship with Teddy, but Teddy encourages him to go since she doesn't want to keep him from going. As a result, Teddy and Spencer try to handle a long distance relationship, which doesn't work, as it's difficult for them to even video chat and Teddy still misses Spencer.
Teddy tries to visit Spencer in Boston as a surprise without telling her parents, but Spencer flies back to Denver to surprise her. When Teddy gets back to Denver, they both agree that they cannot maintain the long distance relationship, but are reluctant to talk about breaking up. When they are about to say goodbye, Charlie comes in and asks Teddy and Spencer why they are so sad, and then tells them instead of saying goodbye "Then say hello". Teddy and Spencer then say hello sadly.
While at work, Bob catches a rare species of termites, which later get loose in the house. He attempts to hide the problem by releasing ants to eat the termites, but the termites multiply and starting destroying the house.
PJ decides to drop out of college to pursue the Culinary Arts, but doesn't want to tell his parents. After learning about Bob's secret, he decides to wait on telling his parents. Meanwhile, he tries to get Gabe to get in trouble, but Gabe isn't interested. PJ later comforts Teddy after she parted ways with Spencer, telling her about how he felt when Skyler moved to New York and how he moved on. He also tells Teddy that maybe Spencer and her are meant to be together someday when the time is right.
Amy starts her own mommy blog to compete with Debbie Dooley, and as a result gets invited to host a segment on Good Morning Denver from her house with her family. However, she writes that she has six children, creating a 8 year old daughter Skippy Duncan for the blog. Rumors say that she is pregnant, but it is unknown.
With Toby now sleeping in his room, Gabe tries to find a new room for himself in the house, eventually finding a place in the attic after PJ reveals the attic's existence. Amy finds out Gabe is living in the attic, and decides to use it for her segment to show effective use of space.
While the Good Morning Denver crew is recording the segment live in the attic, the termites cause the side of the house to fall. Bob reveals that the termites escaped. Then PJ reveals he dropped out of college. Teddy then reveals that she flew to Boston. Amy doesn't reveal that she made Skippy, and instead tries to present the weather.
The house ends up destroyed by Termites, and the family winds up living in a hotel until they can find a new home. Teddy then ends the video diary saying she doesn't know where they will live, but ends the diary by saying "Good Luck, Charlie".
