"Buddy Nugget" is the 8th episode of Season 9 and 118th overall of Aqua Something You Know Whatever.


The episode starts off with Shake and Meatwad sitting in the chair watching TV. Frylock comes in, telling them that he has made a new invention called the Buddy Nugget that attracts like-minded individuals for the user to be friends with. Meatwad wants to test it, so Frylock zaps him, whereupon he opens the door to find his two old friends, Squirrelly the squirrel and Terrence the cat.

Shake also wants to test it, so Frylock zaps him too, however, nobody comes to see him because he doesn't actually care about anybody but himself ("Hey, I like people!...Well, I like the things I get from them!") and therefore has no ability to make real friends. When asked by Meatwad why he hasn't used it on himself, Frylock stammers that he needs more time to test it, as he quietly says to himself, "Dr. Balthazar." Frylock then goes to test the device on Carl.

When Carl tests it, Dominic shows up in a similar car to 2 Wycked named "Born 2 Burn" and sharing a similar love for sweatpants and New York sports teams and a disdain for hygene and non-New York sports teams. However, they almost immediately begin a loud, faux-macho shoving-match. Frylock breaks them up while Shake is standing there, because Dominic hates the New York Giants and says that the New York Jets are better, while Carl hates the Jets and thinks the Giants are better. After a minute another nearly-identical lowbrow South Jerseyite shows up in another similar car , asking if "You two fairies are having a gangbang over here", which prompts a torrent of counter-abuse from both Carl and Dominic, who stops fighting with Carl and threatens to kick the second guy's ass for "standing on my friend's lawn here".

All of the new friends quickly end up in a three-way shouting match, shoving and uttering empty threats to each other. Realizing the stupidity they've now created, Frylock and Shake slowly back away. At the Aqua Teen House, Shake asks if he's going to release a pre-release party to push the Buddy Nugget out to the major markets, but Frylock says he hasn't copyrighted it yet, and that he wants nobody to know about it, with Shake promissing to keep it a secret.

After which we immediately cut to the bar where the pre-release party that Shake planned behind Frylock's back is currently happening, much to his anger, but Shake not only shows to him that Flavor Flav will attend the party, but he also gives him and Meatwad 2 drinking tickets and a "V.I.P" pass for the party, Frylock happily goes in, but Meatwad wants to know if Shake also wants to go, but he fakes being lactose intolerant. Frylock shows up to the party to explain to Carl and his new friends that he a "V.I.P" but quickly realizes the "V.I.P" on his pass stands for "Very Impotent Penis", Meatwad eats a bottomless cheese tray, and a pissed-off Frylock wants to know where Shake is, where it is revealed that Master Shake is currently dancing at the REAL pre-release party which is a dance club with women, strippers, and a DJ next door.

Frylock tries to get to the party but the guard prevents him to go in, Shake walks up to Frylock and admits to him that he just planed the other party to get alll the "nerds", after which he shoots t-shirts at him, and gives him two drink tickets, but refuses to see that he an M.V.P, so against his better judgment, he walks back in to dance some more, after which an angry Frylock finally uses the Buddy Nugget on himself and summons his friend, a "weird scientist guy who's afraid of sunlight" named Dr. Balthazar.

Dr. Balthazar, who is a bald, purple, alligator-like creature confined to a wheelchair, is rather violent and obsessed with finding and dissolving the people who pulled his pants down in front of the girl's basketball team in high school gym class. Frylock is clearly embarassed and shocked to be associated with him and hasn't spoken to him in months (scene he said to kill their pets). Frylock gets Dr. Balthazar to use his "metal teeth" (which is evidently a much more powerful teeth-based version of Frylock's laser eyes) to blow open the walls of the club, which causes Shake to flee by a helicopter and ordering to get him " TO THE BOATS", which is yet another pre-release party on a yacht in the harbor.

At the boat, Frylock tries to get in, stating that he "invented the damn thing", but the guard refuses since there is only one person on the list, Meatwad asks the guard if he on the list and to put him under Dewey and Vanessa. Carl, Dominic, and their third friend show up together, having evidently resolved their differences for the time being, noting that the party is a "sausage fest" since they see no women there. Frylock asks Dr. Balthazar if he can use his metal teeth to "change the guard's mind", to which Balthazar says yes, but he ends up explodes the guard's head instead, saying he "changed his mind to pudding".

Frylock, clearly done with his "friend", gives him 2 drink tickets and a V.I.P. Pass and quickly flees to the boat, falsely promising Dr. Balthazar he'll email him, with the clear intention of never speaking to him again, while Balthazar's wheelchair can't follow since he can't fit his wheelchair past the guard's dead body. A frustrated Frylock enters the boat along with Meatwad to confront Shake who was dancing on the disco floor. Frylock angrily scolds him for all this, while Meatwad sees Flavor Flav, who leaves the boat, Shake tries to get him to come back but he already fled the event in a limo. Dr Baltazar shows up to ask if that was Flavor Flav or the Chocolate Rain Guy, but that either way he's a big fan of both. Frylock's arrival and the departure of Flavor Flav evidently ruin the party for Shake, who leaves, slipping on the dead guard's bloody remains on the way down the gangplank and wondering "who left this pudding here", after which he eats some of his remains and remarks that it's damn good.

At the end of the episode, we cut back to the Aqua Teen House, Frylock, evidently unhappy with the one friend the device brought him, hands the Buddy Nugget over to Shake, who says he has secured the copyright to it anyway and that the Buddy Nugget is now his and that he is "winning". "Flavor Flav" shows up at the door and is revealed to actually just be a fat white guy in blackface with a digital clock necklace pretending to be Flavor Flav, which he says is his "tribute to public enemy, and their message of racial empowerment", much to Shake's dismay, and Frylock's anger.
