The episode begins with Eric Cartman telling the other boys that Butters just beat up Scott Malkinson. The other boys, confused, go question Butters why. Butters tells them off because he is mad that the only kid who has any dignity is Kenny. Later, in the principle's office, Stephen Stotch and Linda Stotch figure that it's time for Butters to go to his native land of Hawaii for his hapa noa. Stephen gives his reward card to Butters as it will give him all he needs. The Boys make Kenny stop Butters but in turn, he ends up going with Butters to Hawaii. While at Hawaii they meet members of Butters native people who aren't actually real natives but a bunch of people who either moved there or own timeshares, Butters and Kenny drink Chi Chis and learn of the ancient ruins of Butters' ancestors, Coco Palms, where many say the king still roams. The ruins are taboo to everyone. Kenny, meanwhile, writes to his friends about Hawaii. He mentions that the Hawaiian's diet consist of a weird mixture of Coconut Milk, Pineapple Juice and Vodka, Also known as Chi Chis. Kenny also writes about how Butters is learning the ways of his ancestors with every passing day. Kenny also comments on a girl with big breasts. The next day, Butters is in the middle of his hapa noa when the Hawaiians find out that their rewards cards will soon no longer matter. This causes the native Hawaiians to go to war with the Haoles (People who are not native to Hawaii). The natives soon drive out all the tourists and decide to kill Kenny but Butters defends Kenny and they make Kenny take a trial which involves turning a surfboard in a river. Kenny doesn't make the turn and falls down a waterfall. Kenny then takes refuge in the Coco Palms. Meanwhile, the Natives discuss how to proceed with the war. When one native goes to get more chi chis they find that they're out of chi chis because they closed the ports. Kenny finds the King and an abundance of coconut milk, pineapple juice and vodka hidden away. The natives then finds that they cannot hold out any longer and have to surrender. Butters complains and says that "You can't be good looking, married to Jennifer Lopez and still be a good director". He is talking about Ben Affleck. Kenny then appears with chi chis. The natives, now with chi chis, don't surrender. The Haoles decide to give in and the rewards cards are reinstated. Butters and Kenny both have their hapa noa ceremony. Butters then learns that Ben Affleck isn't with Jennifer Lopez and is now with Jennifer Garner. Butters and Kenny walk off into the sunset while talking about "Argo".
