While Mike pursues an unsuccessful career as a Teppanyaki chef, Pearl and her underlings are engaged in warfare against an army of renegade robots. Mike offers air support with a bomb made from vinegar and baking soda but accidentally packs it with enough baking soda to destroy the camping planet. During the movie, Servo sings a song about the 70's (not the 1970's, just the 70's) before trying out a life as a trucker. Meanwhile, while Crow transforms himself into Turkey Volume Guessing Man and Mike and the bots try reenacting the movie to figure out just what was going on, Pearl is glorified with an award ceremony for her part in the war but with a disastrous finale. Written by Titus Yorick.
