"Brain Eraser" is the tenth episode of season two (and twenty-second episode overall) of Regular Show. When it originally aired on February 25, 2011, 1.551 million viewers tuned in, making it, at the time, the least-viewed episode of the series, until the airing of "Muscle Woman" a few weeks later. The episode also marks the debut of the character Eileen, who appears in a bit part.
Mordecai must get the memory of seeing Pops naked out of his head.
Mordecai and Rigby find Pops' copy of Moustaches Monthly, which they were to deliver weeks ago. The pair play "Rock, Paper, Scissors" to see who has to deliver Pops his magazine, and Mordecai loses. Mordecai drops the magazine off in Pops' room, but Pops has just got out of the shower and is in the nude. Mordecai sees Pops naked and they are both hugely uncomfortable with the situation.
Mordecai goes back downstairs and tells Rigby about his encounter with Pops. Rigby laughs at first, finding it funny that Mordecai has seen Pops' "junk mail," but Mordecai is truly upset. Rigby decides that Mordecai needs to play Strong Johns at the arcade to relieve him of his trauma. This does not work, so Rigby takes Mordecai to see Margaret, but Mordecai can only see Pops' head on Margaret's body. Finally, Rigby and Mordecai go to a video store to rent Good Cop, Sad Cop. Rigby talks to VG and Rigby sees an opportunity to cure Mordecai of his bad memory with a video the employee is obsessed with.
Rigby forces Mordecai to watch Planet Chasers: Starlight Excellent. The video does get Mordecai to stop thinking of Pops, but it also saps all of Mordecai's memories and thoughts. Rigby tries to get his friend back by taking Mordecai out for their usual fun activities - bowling, throwing bologna on Muscle Man's car, going for coffee - but Mordecai remains zoned out. Rigby turns to Skips for help - he tells him they must both watch the tape.
The three sit down to watch Planet Chasers, and this time Rigby and Skips have their memories sapped as well, drawing them into the video world where Mordecai is stuck. Mordecai tells them that he still remember seeing Pops naked. At first, Rigby told him to just get over it but Mordecai explain to him it not something you can just forget or un see. Skips said the only way for Mordecai to forget about seeing Pops naked, is to erase the memory. They have to search through Mordecai's mind to find the Naked Pops memory. When they find it, Pops tries to escape, and because the event happened so fast in real life, Mordecai's memory is a fast runner, too.
Mordecai starts remembering obstacles in order to hinder The Naked Pops Memory's path, even recalling a steep cliff, but Pops' Memory jumps off it without caring. In the golf cart, Mordecai decides to drive off a steep cliff and cover the Naked Pops Memory once and for all in mid-air, remembering to recall a bouncy castle at the last second to break the trio's fall. On the ground, they find the video store clerk. He tells them the way out and Mordecai, Rigby, and Skips are back into reality. While Mordecai is celebrating his memory's displacement, Benson walks into the living room, fussing. While Benson is castigating everybody, his body towel slips off, revealing his "junk mail."
