Inspired by Quagmire's mention of having to undergo flight training for drones, Peter buys one. But in a flight around the neighborhood, it is captured by a hawk and taken to the house behind the Griffin's home. In the attempt to see if the neighbor could help them recover it, they find he has died.
The home is quickly purchased by New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski. At first, the guys are amazed, but his non-stop partying soon gets on Peter's nerves, but when he tries to get them to quiet down, he is abused for his trouble. He tries to enlist the guys to help him, but their stunt of dressing Cleveland as a leprechaun fails and they are all collectively beaten up as well.
Meanwhile, when forced to play 'tea party' with Stewie, Brian finds he has taken up beekeeping and suggests marketing the honey at a farmers' market with him. They quickly sell of of their original production at a major profit, so to encourage the bees to make more honey, Stewie feeds them steroids. While the bees do increase their output, the boys find they have also become stronger and more aggressive, chasing them out of the market and following them home.
After using Meg to temporarily distract the bees, Stewie launches the hive over the back fence to get rid of the queen. The hive lands on Gronk, who samples the honey but becomes very frightened by the handful of stray bees and departs Quahog. Later on the news, the Griffin find that Gronk was suspended from the Patriots after steroids from the ingested honey cause him to fail a drug test. However, Gronk pitches a bus through the roof of the Griffin home in revenge.
