When Charlotte's mini van breaks down and she looks for a "jack" , the Rugrats try to help her by entering a nearby Italian resturant. They find a "Jack" there, but he happens to be a mobster with an interest in the Dummi Bears. - Description from Klasky Csupo
Charlotte who is a very distracted workaholic, offers to drive the babies (Angelica, Chuckie, and Tommy) to a Dummi Bears concert. Didi was originally supposed to do this, but Charlotte decided to take the task off her hands, much to Didi's despair. As Charlotte is driving out of the Pickles household, Spike sneaks into Charlotte's van.
When Charlotte's van hits a flat tire en route to the concert, the climax begins. Charlotte tells the children not to worry and exits the vehicle, then starts to assess the issue to her car. She realises that she has a flat tire, however she doesn't have a car jack which is required to fix a flat tire. Charlotte then gets back in the van and makes a call on her phone to rectify the situation.
Meanwhile, the babies who are anticipating going to the concert and confused to the situation at hand, as usual get into mischief. Angelica and the other children mistake hearing Charlotte needing a car jack, as her needing a man named "Jack". So the children begin their journey to look for "Jack" and sneak out of Charlotte's van, and meander their way into an Italian restaurant.
Whilst in the restaurant, Chuckie and Tommy split up away from Angelica. Angelica bumps into a man who works at the restaurant, and explains she is looking for "Jack". After asking for Angelica's name, she spouts, and he explains "Jack" is not available right now. A waiter mistakes Angelica as "Jack's" daughter Gianna, to which Angelica uses the situation to her advantage and agrees that she is his daughter. Chuckie and Tommy who secretly spy on her are confused at first, but then understand that Angelica is fibbing.
After this, the man Angelica bumped into (who is actually "Jack's" bodyguard) apologies and tells her that "Jack" is extremely busy and he is willing to accommodate Angelica until he is available.
Angelica then asks for a substantial amount of free food to which her orders are demanded. Chuckie and Tommy ignore her and continue to roam though the restaurant flustered. The boys approach "Jack's" office door and attempt to turn the knob when they are spotted by his bodyguard who is concerned to see two unaccompanied children in the restaurant. He grabs them in his arms to find their guardian. He soon inadvertently drops them off at Angelica's table, after she demands to see "Jack".
Angelica is gloating in her feast. Tommy and Chuckie explain to Angelica, they are worried about missing the concert and still wondering where "Jack" is.
Angelica at this point who could care less about the concert and enjoying her meal, tells her cousin and her friend not to worry and gets a table side accordion player to play the Dummi Bears theme song to which Chuckie enjoys. Tommy however is not impressed.
"Jack" approaches Angelica's table when he realises that she is not his daughter. Angelica unsuccessfully tries to play it off and convince him otherwise. "Jack" however likes Angelica's attitude despite her lying about being his daughter. "Jack" then asks Angelica what her name is and where her mother is, to which she complies. "Jack" then begins to get to the bottom of the situation.
Back at Charlotte's van, she is still preoccupied and distracted on her mobile phone trying to get her car repaired, when she notices "Jack" walking up to her car with her daughter, Tommy and Chuckie in his arms. Charlotte shocked and confused snaps out of it, and Spike then barks in the back of her van to which she notices him as well.
"Jack" asks Charlotte if she is having car trouble to which she confirms. "Jack" then offers to give Charlotte and the babies a ride in his stretch limousine to the Dummi Bear's concert, and giving them front row seats.
