Diego suggests a shortcut. Locked in a cave, they pass fossils from the Palaeocene, Miocene and some of the earliest organisms, even some objects from science fiction.

After they recover the child, Manny, Sid and Diego discover a cave full of paintings and learn a little more about how Manny lost his family to human hunters.
As all the animals migrate south to avoid the colder weather, Manny the lonely Mammoth heads against the current. Sid the giant sloth, who slept through the start of the great migration, gets himself in trouble with two shovel-nosed rhinos. In an attempt to escape the angry rhinos, Sid hides behind Manny, who becomes his unlikely hero. Meanwhile, a family of Neanderthals celebrate a new child as a pack of Sabre-toothed tigers watch on, plotting their revenge.
Manny, Sid, Diego and baby Roshan set up camp for the night. Two members of Diego's pack visit him while the others sleep, sending a threat from their leader, Soto. Sid uses the baby to impress two female sloths but gets himself into the usual trouble. The four set out towards Glacier Pass, taking on different familial roles and finding humour in friendship.
Manny, Diego and Sid make it to Half Peak, but the ground erupts with lava. Manny sees Diego struggling on a ledge and saves him, almost sacrificing himself in the process. Diego is thankful but bewildered by Manny's actions, and Manny responds, "That's what you do in a herd." Meanwhile, the other sabre-toothed tigers lie in wait to intercept the troupe. Sid, Diego and Manny set up camp, Sid discovers fire, and the baby takes his first steps. Diego agonises over his dishonesty.

Lawrence walks in to find the living room in shambles, and Sally tries to pretend it was all Conrad's fault. Lawrence tells her that no-one likes a suck up. Sally and Conrad bond while laughing at horrible Larry and his allergies.
