Iolaus and Hercules save the life of the writer Parentheses, who was about to be hanged for writing about the hoods' crimes in Macedonia and insists to accompany them. Then Elopius begs them to save his daughter Melina from an unseen monster in the Cave of Echoes, which Hercules already knew. After reminiscing how he saved Deianeira from Anteus the giant rock monster and defeated some other monsters, and more heroic deeds -taking up over half of the episode- Hercules finds the girl, who just slipped and got her foot caught, while trying to rescue her kitten Zeus, and makes Parentheses pull her out.

Although much of the episode is flashbacks (which save the producers a lot of money) it also provides backstory for some of the scenes from the opening credits: the two-headed Hydra; the giant Gargan (possibly named for Francois Rabelais' Gargantua) who falls backward onto a hay wagon; the sea monster with a rolling eye that swallows Hercules and his future wife.
