Fortune Cookie is the thirteenth episode of season three (and fifty-third episode overall) of Regular Show.
After Rigby steals his fortune at a Chinese restaurant, Benson falls victim to a streak of bad luck.
All the park workers gather at a Chinese restaurant that Benson picked out of random in celebration of his good luck (a long winning-streak while gambling with Rigby the night before). Rigby, however, is less enthusiastic at his loss of stuff that caused Benson's good fortune. After a copious meal (one that Rigby hardly participated in because of a ridiculously long wait for a glass of water), fortune cookies are handed out. Rigby, getting a fortune showing even more bad luck, decides (despite Mordecai's protests) to swap his fortune with that of Benson's, which shows him getting good luck, when Benson isn't looking.
As the day progresses, Rigby is getting impossibly lucky: repeatedly winning at Rock, Paper, Scissors; randomly getting pizza, drinks, and cash; setting the world record in a video game without looking or touching it (despite the fact that he is terrible at video games); and being invited to be on the cover Video Game Monthly. Meanwhile, Benson is getting impossibly unlucky, enduring uncountable bee stings, beatings and other unfortunate events, which lead to him losing his car, wallet, driver's license, paycheck, and apartment.
Mordecai is upset, even frustrated at how Rigby is getting all of that good luck, constantly reminding him of his stolen luck, but Rigby shrugs it off as him just being jealous of his luck. Mordecai decides to tell Benson, after finding out his phone number had been disconnected and after some searching around the park, he then finds that Benson had resorted to card playing in Skips' garage to try and re-kindle his luck. Unfortunately, Benson gambles away the Park to a warlock ('the guy with the fanny pack'), who opened his fanny pack to collect his winnings.
Right when The Park on the brink of being taken away, Mordecai finds Rigby and tells him to switch the fortunes because Benson's luck is getting so bad it's going to destroy the park. Rigby decides enough is enough and swaps fortunes with Benson, restoring the park. Next, Rigby's interview is canceled and we learn that Muscle Man will be on the cover of Video Game Monthly. It was revealed at the end of the episode that earlier in the restaurant, Muscle Man switched his fortune cookie with Rigby's, thus giving Rigby the bad fortune that he eventually gave to Benson. The fortune Muscle Man received said that Muscle Man was to be on the cover of Video Game Monthly.
