Synopsis (Source: Wikipedia)

Earl (Jason Lee) and Randy (Ethan Suplee) blew up a ceramic figurine belonging to Joy (Jaime Pressly) while playing with bottle rockets. The figurine was a trophy won by Joy and her mother when Joy was young, and that error became #153 on The List: „Broke Joy's fancy figurine.“

In this episode, Earl discovers he can't just buy a replacement figurine (described by Earl as a princess riding a „487 side-discharge, self-mulching lawn mower“) since they're custom made and awarded only as the first prize in the Balboa & Sons Mother and Daughter Prettiest Pretty Princess Pageant. Earl finds Shelly Stoker (Missi Pyle), a competitor of Joy's who has won the contest the last several times. If Shelly will give him the trophy when she wins the upcoming pageant, Earl promises his help with Shelly's and her daughter Candy's (Chloe Moretz) practice of their family talent for knife throwing.

Joy knows Earl is helping Shelly and Candy, but she doesn't want Earl to be able replace the figurine — she wants him to buy her a hot tub instead. To prevent them from winning, Joy finds that the rules don't say that the mother and daughter both have to be alive, and enters the pageant with her „deceased mother“, an urn filled with ashes of cigarettes recently smoked by herself and Darnell (Eddie Steeples).

At the pageant, the score is tied going into the talent portion. Joy sings a horrible version of „Wind Beneath My Wings“ and it looks like Shelly and Candy are going to win easily. But Candy wants to be a doctor, and she wants to lose the competition so she won't have to spend her life on the pageant circuit with her mother. Earl doesn't want to ruin Candy's life just to fix his list item, so he tells her to throw the knife into his leg so they will lose the talent portion and the pageant.

Despite her bad talent, Joy wins the pageant and a new figurine for herself instead of getting it via Earl's plan of using the one from Shelly and Candy. Karma is satisfied either way, and Earl crosses the item off his list.

Meanwhile, Joy enters the pageant on her own with her „dead“ mother to win the figurine herself to stay on Earl’s list.
