Joel and the 'bots feel waterlogged after an episode of the soggy chapter serial, Undersea Kingdom (1936), starring Crash Corrigan. Next, it's more water-on-the-brain fare with Roger Corman's Attack of the Giant Leeches (1959). Meanwhile, Dr. Forrester uses a leech on TV's Frank to cure him of smoking. Joel presents the Instant Adolescent Kit. A thought experiment leads the 'bots to imagine how they'd dress if they were to take over the world. Joel and the 'bots discuss their dreams. The three movie-mockers dress as hillbillies and sing "I'm a Danger to Myself and Others." The threesome ponders the leeches' level of intelligence. Joel reads a letter from a 59-year-old fan.
