The episode starts at the [[Mystery Shack]]. [[Tyler Cutebiker|Tyler]] wants to get his Christmas shopping done early this year, and is searching for something that represents the holiday. Dipper and Mabel are hungry and they ask Grunkle Stan to take them to [[Greasy's Diner]]. They end up locking Tyler in the store because they don't want to wait for him to make up his mind. At the diner, Grunkle Stan orders a split plate, with a plate of ketchup for Dipper and a cup of salad dressing for Mabel since he wants to save money. Mabel wants pancakes, but Grunkle Stan doesn't want to splurge. Dipper declares that he is going to win everybody free pancakes by beating the manliness tester, but Mabel and Grunkle Stan just laugh at him. Grunkle Stan makes fun of Dipper, citing an incident where he found Dipper in the bathroom singing "[[Disco Girl]]" into a comb. Dipper then attempts to win the free pancakes but fails. A card comes out that says, "You are a cutie patootie!" to the sound of a baby laughing and nursery music playing in the background. [[Manly Dan]] is able to effortlessly beat the machine with just his pinky pushing the manhandle, and wins free pancakes for everyone in the diner.

Dipper runs off in embarrassment. He winds up in the [[Gravity Falls Forest|forest]] eating [[Real Man Jerky]] and doing bench presses with a small twig, when all of a sudden the ground beneath him begins to shake. A herd of forest animals run past Dipper followed by Manly Dan, who tells Dipper to run for his life. Dipper hides behind a log where a huge [[Manotaurs|Manotaur]] named [[Chutzpar]], summoned by the smell of Dipper's beef jerky, arrives. Chutzpar can smell that Dipper has emotional issues and Dipper tells the Manotaur that he has man-related problems. Dipper sees how manly the Manotaur is and asks for some pointers. Chutzpar agrees and tells Dipper to climb on his back hair. He then takes Dipper to the [[Man Cave]], where there is an entire group of Manotaurs doing various manly things. Dipper introduces himself as Dipper the Destructor. The group initially rejects Dipper but decides to train him after he uses reverse psychology.
Meanwhile, Mabel is trying to help Stan to get [[Lazy Susan]] to like him, with the help of [[Wendy Corduroy|Wendy]] and [[Soos Ramirez|Soos]]. Then Dipper is given the task to bring back the [[Multi-Bear|Multi-Bear's]] head to the [[Leaderaur|leader of the Manotaurs]]. Once done he will be a man. Dipper goes to do his task and meanwhile, Mabel takes Stan to Lazy Susan at Greasy's to admit his imperfections, then Lazy Susan goes away to get her phone number for Stan.

Soon, Dipper finds the Multi-Bear and defeats him. However, the bear asks Dipper if he could grant his last wish before he dies. Dipper agrees and the Multi-Bear points to a tiny radio in the corner of its cave, asking Dipper to play the tape already in it. Dipper turns it on and the Multi-Bear reveals that his favorite song is Disco Girl. Realizing that the Manotaurs bullied the Multi-Bear because he likes this song (which is a sign of girliness), Dipper decides just to let the Multi-Bear live. He tells the Manotaurs that it's horrifying to kill the Multi-Bear because he's a really nice guy and that they're a bunch of jerks if they want him to do it. The Manotaurs leave him saying that Dipper will never become a man, and he goes back to the Greasy Diner to tell Grunkle Stan and Mabel what had happened.

Grunkle Stan says Dipper was his own man and that he stood up for what was right. Mabel leans over the table and discovers that Dipper has a chest hair. After Dipper congratulates himself, Mabel takes tweezers and plucks the hair out, claiming it was a "scrapbookertunity." Grunkle Stan tells Dipper that if he's anything like him, he'll grow a lot more hair when he gets older and then rips off his shirt, revealing large amounts of chest hair. The three laugh until Dipper tells him it's truly disgusting. At the end of the show, during the credits, Grunkle Stan is sitting in his chair when the phone rings. He stops the TV and looks horrified. The phone goes to voicemail and says this is message thirty-six. It starts and Lazy Susan begins talking. She says she was just calling to stay hi, and her [[Donald, Sandy, and Mr. Cat Face|cats]] also want to say hi. Donald and Sandy give dull meows, but Mr. Cat Face hisses. Lazy Susan scolds Mr. Cat Face and tells Stan to call her back. Stan claws at his head and asks himself how can he get out of this relationship.
