Lee Van Cleef and Timoty Van Patten are back in this "sequel" to their last "movie" about a ninja and his apprentice battling evil wherever they go. During the breaks, Joel and the Bots dabble in improv with hard suggestions from Gypsy, though their act beats the Mads' improv by a mile. To cope with the improv fiasco, the Mads introduce the Buffet Conveyor Belt to help bring the buffet right to the table while Joel and the Bots introduce the Gerbilsphere 2, though the results doesn't quite justify the labor. Later, the Bots introduce their ideas for custom vans based off of Van Patten's from the "movie" and Crow is General Timothy Van Patten. Tom then provides ideas for animal sidekicks for all the fictional TV detectives out there. In the end, Joel introduces the Lee Van Cleef dress up doll (complete with love handles) and Frank insists that ABC bring back "The Second Hundred Years" before Dr. Forrester bashes in his head.
