"Out of Commission"
The episode starts off with Muscle Man spitting out gum on a wrapper, but not closing it. He sits down with Starla, who has a concerned look on her face, is holding popcorn to laugh and eat for the prank. The Jogger steps over the gum without noticing, and Muscle Man laughs, but Starla doesn't. Starla says that it's time to take it to the next level, and explains that her parents are in town tonight. Muscle Man is excited by this, and says that they should take them to Wing Kingdom. Starla says that she doesn't want to take them there, and shows him a bistro in the park, where he says "Oh no, bro." Starla says that she'll see him at 7:00. Later, Muscle Man is seen in the kitchen at the phone. He makes a reservation for 7:00, where the Bistro en le Parc Manager yells at him that he better be fancy, or else. Mordecai and Rigby ask what's wrong. Muscle Man says that he has to take his girlfriend Starla out to dinner tonight, but he has to be fancy. He says that he's afraid that if he isn't good enough, he'll get dumped by Starla and he'll be miserable. Mordecai and Rigby reply that they'll help, but only to avoid doing his work. They then go through a montage of teaching him how to be fancy. He is bad at first, but he eventually gets better at it.
Mordecai says the last step is getting an outfit. They head to a clothing store where Muscle Man is dressed in a suit with his hair gelled back. He says he feels like a new man, but then the suit tears and his hair breaks. He starts crying that he'll never be ready, but Mordecai and Rigby have a plan B. The scene transitions to the restaurant where Muscle Man and Starla's parents are eating. Muscle Man tests out the radio, when Starla's parents, Herb and Rose appear. Muscle Man shakes hands with Herb, and kisses the hand of Rose. Starla is surprised by this, and so are her parents. They start to walk toward the door, which Muscle Man rushes toward and opens. Starla and her parents thank Muscle Man, and Muscle Man tells the Manager about his reservation. He tells him he better be fancy, and the group of 4 enter the Restaurant. The Manager tells a waiter to keep an eye on them, and then it is revealed that Mordecai is disguised as a waiter to help Muscle Man, and Rigby is disguised as a customer in goggles to also help him. Throughout the meal, Mordecai and Rigby help Muscle Man to be fancy, but the dinner gets worse when their scheme is uncovered by the restaurant. After Muscle Man and Herb reveal that they're not fancy, the restaurant attempts to kick them out because they're not fancy. A fight ensues, and after the fight, the Manager is dead. Starla's parents still want Muscle Man to take them somewhere, and he takes them to Wing Kingdom. Mordecai and Rigby follow. Starla's Parents say that they're picky, but don't care. After telling him that he likes Muscle Man, Muscle Man flips the table over and Muscle Man and Herb take off their shirts and yell "Whooooo!!!!!" Mordecai asks Rigby if he wants his wings, and Rigby replies "No thanks, dude. I just lost my appetite." And the episode ends there.
