Follow that Dinosaur
The Marshalls have to barter with the Pakuni in order to reverse a drought.
The Land of the Lost has been going through a drought. Despite a lot of thunder and lightning, there has been no rain. Will and Holly start to believe that the situation has somehow negatively affected their father into making stone soup, consisting solely of water and a big stone. After going through the process.
Eventually, Will and Holly realize their father's actions are a morality play for their benefit, but the reality is that the drought has negatively affected the creatures of the Land of the Lost. Usually docile, Emily the Brontosaurus has gone on a rampage, and all the Dinosaurs have been ravaging all the food sources that the Pakuni generally harvest, which in turn has turned the Pakuni against the Marshalls.
Rick believes Will and Holly have discovered the reason for the drought, namely the Crystals which are missing from one of the Pylons which control the weather. They find the crystals in the Pakuni's home.
Together, they have to figure out how to get the crystals back and replace them in the pylon, all the while mending relations with the Pakuni. Rick figures that a communal pot of stone soup may be the answer to both their problems.
