The episode starts off with the UG gang going into their make-shift pillow fort to sleep in the Sleep Over Dream Night bed. They say their good nights to each other before shutting off the lights to go to sleep. After a few seconds, they hear an annoying noise. This disturbs their sleep so they get up to see what was going on. At first they try to ignore it, but after hearing the noise several times they lose their patience and decide to go on a quest to look for the source of the noise.

They tear apart the entire RV, starting small at first and then soon ripping down the walls. They end up destroying the entire RV, but the noise continues to be heard. They decide the most logical answer to the problem was that one of them must be making the noise. Pizza Steve tries to blame Mr. Gus, but Mr. Gus blames Uncle Grandpa. They end up having an extreme pillow fight to settle their scores. Uncle Grandpa single handedly defeats all of his friends. Uncle Grandpa thinks he finally got rid of the noise, but he soon finds out he was the one making the noise. Uncle Grandpa knocks himself out with the pillow. He wakes up to find he is in the Sleep Over Dream Night bed with all his friends who are alive and not beat up. Pizza Steve and Mr. Gus explain that the search for the noise was part of a dream they all were having because they were asleep in the same bed. The noise sounds again, and they realize it is their Breakfast Bird alerting them about breakfast time. Uncle Grandpa decides they should eat the annoying Breakfast Bird for Breakfast and the episode ends.
