The Episode[]

Host Segments[]

Prologue: The Mads are shocked to learn that last week's ratings were the highest ever, even when going up against the Superbowl, a discovery that makes them furious. A confused Joel points out they got mad when the ratings were low too. Dr. F explains, "What do you expect? We're mad scientists!"

Segment One: Joel & the Bots enjoy a game of tag, which continues all the way into the theater via the door sequence.

Segment Two: Servo falls in love with Joel's new blender, but the courtship turns sour when Joel drinks from Servo's girl. Undeterred, Servo flirts with the coffeemaker, until he realizes it's Mr. Coffee.

Segment Three: Cambot turns things upside down as part of a tribute to Salvador Dali while Joel & the Bots discuss surrealism, vaguely.

Segment Four: Joel thanks the people for their calls, before Servo and Joel discuss the Village People. Servo relates that he read one of those 'Where are they now?' articles. Turns out one of them is a construction worker, one of them is a police officer, etc. The crew ends the show with a big Dating Game-style goodbye kiss.
