- "We are leaving and we are never coming back! You are alone, you pathetic psychopath!"
- ― Amanda De Santa
Michael comes home to find Amanda about to begin a yoga session with Fabien LaRouche. Fabien encourages Michael to join them. Amanda protests, but Michael agrees. Together, the three move outside where Fabien leads Michael through three yoga poses. After these three, Fabien demonstrates a fourth pose with Amanda, one which looks very much like a sexual act. Enraged, Michael attempts to hit Fabien who dodges, causing Michael to fall into the pool. Amanda yells at Michael and she and Fabien leave.
Quite upset, Michael goes to find Jimmy. Jimmy is reluctant to spend time with his dad, but eventually agrees. The two drive to a Burger Shot to pick up some drugs from Jimmy's friend Ahron Ward. The buy goes smoothly, but on their way back home, Michael drinks a soda which turns out to have been drugged by Jimmy. Jimmy forces his father out of the car and drives off while someone off-screen drags Michael away. Michael suffers massive hallucinations, including being surrounded by monkeys and abducted by aliens before being dropped midair over Los Santos, resulting by a massively multicolored freefall.
When Michael finally wakes, he finds himself in only his underwear. He rushes back home. In the kitchen, he discovers a note from Amanda explaining that she and the children have left for a while since they can't stand Michael's crazy antics. Once the mission ends, Michael get a text from Jimmy stating that he's taken Michael car and money from his bank account and found a place of his own. Michael loses $3000.

- The trip sequence might reference Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey. Similar to the scene, the movie starts with apes, which represent early humans, and ends with the protagonist being ejected out of a spaceship into a colorful and trippy "star-gate".
- The flying sequence may also reference the film "The Big Lebowski", on which the protagonist takes drugs and hallucinates that he's flying.
- The check list at the end of the mission features the line "Praise the Sun!". This is a reference to Dark Souls, a fantasy RPG, which features this line which has since attained meme-like popularity among Dark Souls fans.
- The drink that causes Michael's hallucinogenic episode is most likely laced with ketamine, as Jimmy makes a passing reference to the drug's continued use in veterinary practice and ketamine is the most commonly abused hallucinogenic substance available on the black market that fits this description; PCP, another popular hallucinogen, has not been available for veterinary purposes in the US since its rescheduling in 1978.
- The Song played during the 'Trip Scene' is C90's "Shine a Light (Flight Facillites Remix)." This song features on Radio Mirror Park.
