The episode begins with [[Omi]] and [[Raimundo Pedrosa|Raimuno]] pouring milk into [[Clay Bailey|Clay's]] hat. Omi asks why they are doing this, and Raimundo says they have to verify that it can actually hold ten gallons of cow milk, since it is a ten-gallon hat. Omi is amazed to hear that milk comes from cows, since the [[Xiaolin Temple]] uses goat milk. Suddenly, Clay enters, and he is furious. He chases Raimundo around the room, but Master Fung interrupts and announces a visitor—Clay's father. As he tours the temple, [[Bailey Family#"Daddy" Bailey|Daddy Bailey]] is unimpressed with the environment, and tells Clay that he wants him to return to the ranch. Just then, [[Dojo Kanojo Cho]] enters, yelling about the activation of a new [[Shen Gong Wu]]—the [[Orb of Tornami]]. He comments that the star on Daddy Bailey's jacket looks familiar. Dojo takes the Xiaolin Dragons to the old western town to locate the Orb of Tornami. Upon arrival, they discover that [[Jack Spicer]] and [[Wuya]] have already acquired it. If not for Jack’s need to gloat, they could have escaped without incident. Omi suggests a sneaky plan, but Clay charges upon his father’s insistence. Jack takes advantage of the miscalculated attack and escapes with the Orb of Tornami. Daddy Bailey commands Clay to return home, and never to return to the Xiaolin Temple.

Plot

The episode begins with Omi and Raimuno pouring milk into Clay's hat. Omi asks why they are doing this and Raimundo says they have to verify that it can actually hold ten gallons of cow milk, since it is a ten-gallon hat. Omi is amazed to hear that milk comes from cows, since the Xiaolin Temple uses goat milk. Suddenly, Clay enters, and he is furious. He chases Raimundo around the room, but Master Fung interrupts and announces a visitor—Clay's father. As he tours the temple, Daddy Bailey is unimpressed with the environment, and tells Clay that he wants him to return to the family ranch. Just then, Dojo Kanojo Cho enters, yelling about the activation of a new Shen Gong Wu—the Orb of Tornami. He comments that the star on Daddy Bailey's jacket looks familiar. Dojo takes the Xiaolin Dragons to the old western town to locate the Orb of Tornami. Upon arrival, they discover that Jack Spicer and Wuya have already acquired it. If not for Jack’s need to gloat, they could have escaped without incident. Omi suggests a sneaky plan, but Clay charges upon his father’s insistence. Jack takes advantage of the miscalculated attack and escapes with the Orb of Tornami. Daddy Bailey commands Clay to return home, and never to return to the Xiaolin Temple.

Back at the temple, the remaining Xiaolin Dragons miss Clay. Omi even took it upon himself to imitate Clay's expressions. Dojo reacts to the activation of another Shen Gong Wu by convulsing. He realizes that Daddy Bailey was wearing an inactive Star Hanabi. Dojo flies the group to the Bailey Ranch. The thought of milking cows excites Omi, but Daddy Bailey informs him that they are not dairy cattle. He declares that those who want the "Lone Star of Texas" will have to prove themselves as worthy cattlemen, beginning with waking up at dawn. The next morning, Omi is again excited to milk a cow. Clay informs him that they have one dairy cow, Old Bessie, which Omi may attempt to milk. Daddy Bailey announces that their first task is to herd the cattle to the river for a drink. They complete the task without much effort, but Clay says that it is not that easy to impress his father. In order to prevent Omi from milking her, Old Bessie kicks him though the air several times.

Jack Spicer arrives to claim the Star Hanabi, using the Orb of Tornami to flood the ranch. Jack defeats Daddy Bailey and restrains him with ropes. The Star Hanabi falls off his shirt and sinks. Jack and Clay clutch it simultaneously, which leads to a Xiaolin Showdown. Clay throws the Star Hanabi into the barn, and says that they have to find it in the haystack. Clay uses the Serpent's Tail, while Jack, tired of the Orb of Tornami, switches over to the Sword of the Storm. Each mounts a flying saddle to begin the showdown. Clay has the advantage of being able to pass through the haystack with the Serpent's Tail, but his father distracts him by constantly shouting orders. Daddy Bailey demands a pitchfork for Clay, resulting in a myriad of flying pitchforks raining down upon Jack and Clay. Jack uses the Sword of the Storm to make a cyclone to obliterate the haystack. Daddy Bailey attempts to bark more orders at Clay, but Clay argues back that he can handle the situation alone. Having renewed his confidence, Clay wins the showdown, and claims the Star Hanabi and the Sword of the Storm. Clay offers to return the Star Hanabi to his father. Daddy Bailey refuses and allows his son to resume his studies at the Xiaolin Temple. Omi returns to Old Bessie before having to leave. Tricking Bessie, Omi quickly milks her. She kicks him through the air once again. Omi lands in front of everyone and proclaims that he has finally completed his task.

In this Showdown, Clay Bailey and Jack Spicer dive into the flooded farm cause by Jack Spicer using his Orb of Tornami. They both end up in the water, grabbing the Star Hanabi at the same time. Clay gets out of the water first and is able to call a Xiaolin Showdown. Jack comes up second, starting to challenge a Showdown, soon realizing Clay got up first. Clay wagers the Serpent's Tail, and Jack wagers the Sword of the Storm. Clay names the game to be a needle in a haystack, with the Star Hanabi as the needle.

When the showdown begins, a giant haystack is seen floating in midair, with Jack and Clay on two smaller, separate, haystacks. Two floating saddles come to them, and they ride them to search the haystack for the Star Hanabi. Daddy Bailey is telling Clay what to do the whole time, annoying him. Clay uses the Serpent's Tail to look through the haystack easier, and finds the Star Hanabi. When he goes down to get it, Jack knocks him off his saddle and onto a nearby haystack. Jack uses the Sword of the Storm to destroy the haystack with a tornado and send the Star Hanabi flying out of it. Daddy Bailey keeps trying to tell Clay how to do it, and Clay finally tells him to be quiet and to let him do it himself. Jack almost grabs the Star, but Clay holds him back with his rope, and lets Bessie fly into him. Clay goes to pick up the star, winning the showdown.
