Synopsis (Source: Wikipedia)

Earl, Joy, Darnell and Donny Jones go to the local shopping mart to make up for #24 „Stole a number ticker“. While waiting in line, Randy comes up and takes the number ticker from Earl, saying it isn't his turn. Earl can't disagree. He has a flashback…

It's Christmas 1999, and as Earl and Joy were married just three weeks earlier, they decide to really celebrate. Earl, Joy, Randy and Donny go out to do several „Christmas Carol Heists“, then go to the Crab Shack to celebrate their ill-gotten goods. There, they meet Darnell who impresses the group with his smarts. He starts talking about Y2K, so the group decide to stock up on supplies.

Meanwhile, Catalina starts her journey to America.

The group goes to the shopping mart, and run into Darnell again. Earl doesn't remember his name, and calls him „Crabman“. On their way out, a security guard stops the group to see if they stole anything. Donny drops some stolen goods and runs away, followed by the guard. Darnell comments that security won't matter after Y2K, so Joy decides to return her stuff and steal it later, which the group thinks is a good idea.

Meanwhile, Catalina runs across the border while being shot at.

The group goes back to Donny's house to celebrate New Year's Eve and when midnight hits, the lights go out. The group thinks that the computers have taken over, not realizing that Donny's sister likes screwing with the electric company. They also hear explosions, and think that other „survivors“ are using grenades and machine guns. Actually, it is the usual New Year's fireworks, which they don't recognize as they are usually passed out drunk by about 9:00 pm. They stay inside until sunrise, then go outside to investigate.

Seeing no one, they think computers have taken everyone away, and that they are the last human beings on Earth. Actually, everyone is at the New Year's parade, which they usually miss, sleeping. They go to the shopping mart and discover anarchy. Each takes a section of the mall: Donny in electronics, Randy in Toys, Joy in Cosmetics, Darnell in Party Supplies, and Earl in Snack Foods.

A dispute arises between Earl and Donny, regarding a TV that Joy wants, which nearly erupts into violence. Randy suggests the „number ticker“ method for a resolution method, which helps everyone to live harmoniously (Randy is appointed president) until the next morning, when they awaken to find the Bargain Bag once again open for business.

Meanwhile, Catalina arrives in the United States as an illegal immigrant, after being smuggled across the border in a wooden crate hidden inside the engine compartment of a Chevy Blazer.

Earl finally convinces Randy to give the ticker back.
