Cold open[]

Dr. Weird is hanging upside down with a strange crane and he says: "Chop my head with such velocity and my blood will rocket through my neck and propel my lifeless body all the way to Phoenix!". Then Steve asks what's in Phoenix and he replies: "Well it's your mamma Steve! Get the ax!!"

Main plot[]

The Plutonians hatch another plan, this time involving the abduction of Master Shake. Once they lure Shake aboard their ship, they dispatch a replicant to take his place. Unfortunately, the replicant only slightly resembles Master Shake and cannot dupe Frylock or Meatwad into believing that he is the real Master Shake.

Major Shake then hangs around in the Aqua Teens house because he wasn't even told what to do. Later, he calls the Plutonians through Frylock's computer and upset tells them that "Maybe your next plan should be to tell me what the plan is!". The Plutonians say that they will call him later but he just get away in Carl's car.

Nearing the end of the episode, their plans were foiled and about 30 second later as the Plutonians' ship's engines fail and begins to fall to Earth. Shortly before the impact, Oglethorpe realizes that the impact was about to occur. Then the ship eventually crashed.


  • This episode references "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" - Major Shake references "giant hairy bosoms growing on my back" connecting to a quote by Gonzo "then you'd notice about six huge, hairy tits swelling up on your back."
  • Carl only appeared in one scene.
  • Major Shake looks almost identical to the real shake except his left hand is connected to the straw and he looks like a half shake and his right hand is touching the ground.
