"Ruled Out" is the first episode of Season 3.

Plot

Thinking that his life is restricted way too much, Timmy wishes that his parents couldn't care less about anything. This results in Timmy having candy for every meal and being allowed to watch violent shows. The drawbacks is that they don't even care about hygiene (all of his dad's teeth falls out), and they don't even pay the electric bill. To make things worse, the wish also causes Cosmo and Wanda to not care about anything.

Synopsis

Timmy is playing soccer at his backyard and he is kicking the ball against the door. Then his mom says that he should stop and because that they care for his safety. Timmy ignores this and says "How could this possibly be dangerous?". Dad then opens the door and says: "Timmy listen to your mo..." before he could finish the sentence the ball hits him in the face. For dinner, Timmy has spinach. He then asks his mom "Can I be excused?" Then Mom answers "not until you finish your spinach. He then replies "All of it?" Dad then tells him that he ordinarily sides him with this but his brain is scrambled by a random soccer accident. Timmy then decides but to eat the spinach and he almost barfed by doing this. He then goes to the living room and Cosmo (disguised as a pillow with Wanda) asks him that what are they watching? He then explains the sewer gator and that it is violent and educational but mostly violent. He then watched the intro-movie and when the "most violent footage ever" was about to begin, a non-violent program appears on the screen. Timmy was terrified and panicked. "where did the violence go?" Dad then stands up behind the TV with his tools and tells him that the random soccer accident reminded him of putting the child block on TV to prevent him from watching any violent programming. Mom and Dad then sits on Cosmo and Wanda beside Timmy. Then Timmy tells Mom that the sewer gators is going to be talked about at school. Mom then answers "Well, now you can talk about your feelings, right dear?" Dad replies"Who are you?" The she tells Timmy "It's just because..." Timmy: "you care." with an annoyed expression.

At school playground A.J. and Chester shared what are the coolest parts of the show and asks Timmy what he thinks about it.Timmy answered with just a reply "yeah, but how does that make you feel?" A.J. then asks "child blocks?' Timmy states "Child Blocks.". By answering this all of the students at the playground laugh at him including Francis and the bullied kid. Timmy then walks off to Cosmo and Wanda (disguised as squirrels) and tells them that this stinks and everyone is laughing at him because his parents' care too much. Cosmo then replies with a muffled voice (because of the nuts inside his mouth)but surprisingly Wanda understood this and agrees "it just means they love you". He then replies "well, they're suffocating me. I wish I have parents that could care less." Cosmo and Wanda raised their wands and the magic quickly effected his mom and dad.

Back home, he then goes to kitchen and mom notices him and asks him, "Timmy are you hungry? a growing boy deserves something special. So I made..." Timmy finishes "...Broccoli, Squash, Spinach?" Mom replies "I couldn't care less about foods that are good for you - and your colon. so tonight were having candy and for dessert candy." Dad then calls him to the living room and shows him the brand new television set and tells him that the money that he was saving for his college education is spent but now he couldn't care less. He then hands Timmy the remote and let Timmy watch violent programming. "how about a little Dimmsdale sewer gators." Dad "it's violent" Timmy "it's educational." Both "but it's mostly violent. Yay, violence".

Cosmo and wanda care-free

Cosmo and Wanda, "not that we care"

At school cafeteria Timmy asks A.J. "what's for lunch?" A.J. shows his lunch which is Spinach and tells them that it's because his parents want him to have a healthy colon. Timmy then shows his lunch which is "candy and violence" (candy and a portable DVD player playing sewer gators falls of his lunch bag). At his front yard he then greets his dad and asks him that he should be at work and why does he not wearing any pants. Dad answers "pants are for squares and I'm on vacation" Timmy continues "I wish could be on vacation but I have homework." Dad then replies "homework are for squares like pants, let's play frisbee instead" Timmy then tells that they he has no Frisbee then dad says that "let's use you're useless math book" and he throws it at the window. They went inside the house and Timmy questioned his mom that what is she doing. Mom replies "not cooking and not cleaning." then Mr. and Mrs. Turner danced all night. Timmy then says to Cosmo and Wanda that this is the best wish he ever made.

Mom and Dad care-free

Mr. and Mrs. Turner, "we couldn't care less"

2 weeks later at school cafeteria, Timmy reeks, stomach hurts, feels sick. He raised his arms and the foul-smell scattered throughout the place. All the kids ran except A.J. who is knocked-out by the foul smell. He then went to his front yard which looked like a jungle. He sliced his way through the thick plants and he reached his room by nightfall. He then says to Cosmo and Wanda that he can't concentrate because of the loud noises of his mom and dad were making, and he's gonna fail his test. Wanda replies (with a nagging expression) "who cares, what's math ever done for you." Timmy then asks them that if they're okay because he noticed to fishbowl is very dirty. Cosmo then says that he is swimming in his toilet and he likes it. Then the power went out and Timmy shouts to his dad that the power's out. Dad just simply replies "electric bills are for squares." He then goes down and wishes for a candle (poofs a candle) "A lit candle!" demands Timmy. Wanda whines, "Oh wahhh don't you ever stop nagging". He then sees how dirty and filthy there house was and follows his dad's rotten teeth. He then sees his mom and dad and tells that what's the matter with them, they look gross and the house looks terrible. He then whispered softly "I gotta unwish this wish" Mom heard this and asks what is that, Timmy then replies, "Uhh, I'm offering to feed my fish." Then he runs off and mom and dad thought of eating Timmy's goldfish(Cosmo and Wanda). When Timmy saw this, he said that they cannot eat his fish because they're dirty..." Cosmo and Wanda objected this. Timmy continued "...and chatty." Then suddenly Dad flushes Cosmo and Wanda to the toilet and it leads to the sewage plant. Timmy told Cosmo and Wanda to escape, but they just laughed and cheered on. "I'm swimming in a real toilet, and I love it!" cheered Cosmo as he got flushed down. That's when Timmy realized the horrible truth: when he wished for parents who cared less, the wish also means godparents care less too! He then panicked and stated "you flushed my goldfish?" Dad" well, they're going to the sewage plant." Then both said, "Not that we care." Timmy complains, "But that's where the sewer gators supposed to live." Mom then replies "Oh wahhh, don't you ever stop nagging" Timmy then screams, runs outside, rides a giraffe and went on his way to the sewage plant to rescue Cosmo and Wanda. Mom and Dad suddenly cared and followed Timmy. On the highway, Timmy saw his parents and realized that he must make his parents care for him more to remove the magic. He then goes up to the lamp post. Mom then commands him to get down and he disobeyed, then Mom and Dad started turning back to normal (waxed, shaved, coiffed, etc.). He then jumps to the belly of a sumo wrestler. Mom again commands Timmy to say excuse me and Timmy still disobeys this and he runs to the sewage plant. Dad then says that he is getting away and they could not possible imitate his dangerous stunt. Mom then says that they can use her underarm hair rope and they swing into action and followed Timmy.

At the sewage plant, Timmy then sees Cosmo and Wanda and asks them to jump in the fishbowl but Wanda asks why. Then suddenly a sewer gator appeared and chased Timmy off. Cosmo and Wanda seeing that Timmy was in danger cared for him again. When Timmy was about to get eaten Mom and Dad went to the rescue. He first thought that it was Cosmo and Wanda but Wanda said that it wasn't them and Cosmo said that no that they care... Mom then tied the mouth of the gator and dad beats it up. Mom quotes to Timmy that he's safe yet he reeks. Dad tells Timmy that after he is done beating up the gator, he's in so much trouble. At Timmy's room, he was chained and locked up in a cage. Cosmo said that only 6 more weeks of heavy grounding and Timmy replies that this is better because they love him. Dad and Mom then come in and give him food and a DVD player that shows the child blocks program from earlier. Cosmo and Wanda then appear like in a commercial and Cosmo quotes, "This show is brought to you by the society of healthy colons." He and Wanda says, "Yay, Colons." Then, the episode ends
