The premiere episode of Family Outing begins with a "red carpet" event inside the SBS building; a night introducing the show and the Family members. The members interrogate each other with personal questions to allow the audience to familiarize itself with the Family. The day of formal filming follows with the Family gathering at a farm village, where everyone sets off for a local river to fish and play their first game. During the water-based running race, Hyori's team loses decisively to Yejin's, leading to the introduction of the "Hyori Effect". Returning home with their fish, Yejin reveals her "savage" fish preparation abilities while the other members look on with wonder. After dinner, the Family form a circle to play the "Saranghae (I Love You) Game" and end the evening with a ranking of Family members to determine the sleeping order. Highlights of the ranking include Yejin's annoyance at the men's slow voting leading to a reversal of results in Hyori's favor. As bedtime preparations continue, the faux "Big Bbeon" members Jongshin as "Kae Sung" and Jaesuk as "C-Dragon" are introduced. The next morning, the wake-up mission involves a trivia game, ultimately with Daesung and Jaesuk being held responsible for breakfast duty. Here the concept of "Dumb and Dumber" is introduced as the pairing encounters difficulty determining the appropriate amount of water for cooking ramyun. After breakfast, the Family set out to feed the farm's piglets, with some escaping and chasing down of the "kids" to ensue. The Family then move on to the fields to organize stacks of hay, but not before distracting themselves with another race game. Highlights include Sooro the "Game Devil" carrying Hyori's team to victory, Jongshin's "old man" accordion music, and Yejin losing her sense of direction following the "elephant spin". Finally, the Family stack the hay, plant the seeds, clean up the house, and welcome back the homeowners.

The Family proceed to the beach to complete their first assigned task of digging for ssok (crayfish).

After catching ssok, the Family form teams to play a game of 7-step long jumps. Highlights of the game include piggybacked jumps from the Hyori-Jaesuk and Yejin-Jongshin tandems. After the jumping game, the Family play a quick game of "Catch the Tail" at the muddy shores before heading to the roof of a local building to entertain the local residents with jokes, songs, and celebrity imitations over the town loudspeakers. During dinner preparations, the audience is introduced to the "Stepmother Kim and Chundrella" characters, as well as Chunhee's trademark children's Cinderella song.

The final assignment calls for the Family to harvest seagrass, which is followed by a race game on elevated planks in shallow waters. In a surprising turn of events, the Family "worst-team" of Jaesuk, Jongshin, and Chunhee win the final race of the day.

Highlights include 1) Hyori's team dominating every game despite having the "worst" members of Jaesuk and Jongshin and 2) an emerging rivalry between Haejin and Jaesuk. Returning to the house, the Family decide to catch a chicken for dinner, with Jaesuk and Daesung exhibiting their characteristic cowardice, and relying on Yejin's quick hands and precision technique for the capture. Highlights of dinner preparation include 1) the "Dumb and Dumber" brothers picking perilla leaves, while fearful of Hyori's scolding, 2) Stepmother Kim and Chundrella digging for potatoes, and 3) Jongshin secretively seasoning the stew with ramyun powder. After dinner, the Family play the Saranghae game, using kisses, rather than forehead slaps, as punishment for laughter.

Following breakfast, the Family perform a morning wake-up dancing exercise before heading out into the mud fields to gather loaches. A running gag of the episode features Jongshin being characterized as an ailing hospital patient in matching pajama top and bottoms. While in the mud field, the Family participate in a water basin carrying race in the shallow waters, featuring 1) Jaesuk and Haejin's rivalry and repeated falls and 2) the ongoing battle between Sooro and Chunhee.

The Family welcomes guests G-Dragon and Sungrok, who fills in for the busy Chunhee, before heading to the village house. Dressing up in large latex bib pants, the Family men give each other wedgies, followed by a runway show, before everyone head into the river to catch mullets with large nets. After fishing, the Family form two teams to play a game of chicken fight in the waist-level waters. Many humorous moments arise as a result of water leaking into their bib pants, with 1) Sungrok reminding the audience of Chunhee with his clumsiness and 2) G-dragon and Jaesuk being held upside down to drain their bib pants, with mouthfuls of water as a result. Returning home, the Family cook dinner, as Yejin demonstrates her "savage" eyeball-popping fish preparation ways, contrasting against Jaesuk's cowardice. Other highlights of dinner include Hyori supervising "Dumb and Dumber", who gather vegetables while burdened with equal parts fear and doubt and 2) Jongshin and Jaesuk's "snowy" stew seasoning.

At bedtime, Sooro entertains with a ghost story as the Family falls asleep. During the trivia wake-up mission, Chunhee makes a surprise appearance and is mobbed by Sooro. Chunhee immediately assumes the Chunderella role when tasked with carrying the supplies, forming the "Faulty Brothers" with Sungrok. Rather than the usual assigned breakfast duties, the Family set off on a boat ride to go abalone fishing, featuring scuba diving stories from Chunhee and songs from Sungrok, G-dragon and Jaesuk. On the beach, Sooro and Jongshin trade praises while directing Sungrok, as the other Family members dive for abalone. After a brunch of grilled abalone and rice porridge, the Family forms teams to play a palm-pushing game where Stepmother Kim outduels Chunderella, G-Dragon defeats "imitation C-Dragon" Jaesuk, Daesung bests "Gaesung" Jongshin, Hyori outcharms Sungrok, and Yejin savages G-Dragon.

The Family welcomes Junjin, celebrating Hyori's new single U-Go-Girl as they meet. After finding the homeowners' house, they go fishing at the river for their first assigned task, taking some time to play in the water. Junjin and Sooro are the aces during this race through water game, with teammates acting as obstacles for the opposing competitor, leading to much foul play from moving-road-block Yejin and upright-wall Sooro. After the game, the Family find nary a fish despite their bean paste and rice bait trap. Returning home for dinner preparation, Hyori attempts to fry a loaf of bread, and with Chunhee away briefly for a hospital visit, Jaesuk endures Stepmother Kim's oppression as he gathers corn, Bruce Lee-style. Meanwhile, Junjin and Yejin pick vegetables in the field, pledging each other votes during sleep order rankings. During soup preparation, forbidden from using ramyun seasoning, the Family men flavor the stew with canned fish and meat, collude carefully to avoid detection from Hyori. After dinner, with Chunhee returning, the Family play the "Truth" game, guessing each other's good and bad points as decided by the other members. During the sleep order rankings, the Family role play to compete to be the most pitiful. Highlights include Jongshin invoking his newborn son, Chunhee bribing with aloe leaves, and Yejin falling to the ground in tears.

Bringing their eels home, the Family boss Chunhee and Jinwook around as they make raspberry wine. During dinner preparation, Jaesuk encounters difficulty catching eel from the water pot before teaching Chunhee how to pick vegetables, Bruce Lee-style. Meanwhile, Yejin and Jinwook slice the eel, Jongshin prepares marinade for it with canned barbecue sauce, and Daesung covertly marks charcoal on Hyori's face. After eating, the Family compose and recite poetry based on the theme of Family, ranging from heartfelt to vengeful, before painting art and calligraphy on a bare wall.

In the morning, the wake-up mission comprises trivia and a tickling test, with Jinwook and Jaesuk relegated to breakfast duty, where Jaesuk becomes increasingly frustrated with Jinwook's inability to cook and barrage of non sequiturs. Following breakfast, the Family herd the goats out to graze, giving the Family the opportunity to play a potato (fertilizer) sack race game, where foul play and Chunhee's clumsiness are in full display.
