"Rage Against the TV"
"High Score" is the seventh episode of season two (and nineteenth episode overall) of Regular Show.
Mordecai and Rigby decide to earn respect by beating the world record on an arcade game. Once they do, they must face off against the game's champion, Garrett Bobby Ferguson.
Mordecai and Rigby are raking the leaves when Benson gives them their pay. They are mad because Benson always gives their money in resealable plastic bags filled with random bills and coins instead of a normal check (then the two compare their payment to Skips). Benson doesn't take them seriously and drives off in the cart. Mordecai gets annoyed and decides that he needs to get out of the park for a break.
As Mordecai and Rigby walk down the street, they get run over by two kids on their skateboards. As they get to The Coffee Shop, they agree that in order to get respect, they need to be good at things. Just then, they see people crowding an arcade game called Broken Bonez, being played by the same kids who ran them over. Mordecai then challenges their high score of 700,000 but instead, he and Rigby get negative points. Mordecai and Rigby decide to play the game more and more in order to get respect; then, a man named Jack Farley, comes to them to try to beat them in the game, but loses. He gives a card to Mordecai and Rigby stating "Jack Farley thinks you're awesome."
Mordecai and Rigby are determined to gain respect now more than ever, and they dominate everybody on Broken Bonez, earning respect in the process (even receiving doughnuts as a reward for winning). They play Broken Bonez more and more and almost beat the universe record, 1,279,001 points by someone called G.B.F. However, a giant bearded face comes out of nowhere and reveals himself as G.B.F. (short for Garrett Bobby Ferguson), who challenges Mordecai and Rigby in the game, so he can keep his title.
Despite his great effort, Mordecai and Rigby are close to the high score, but G.B.F. begs them not to break it, stating that Broken Bonez is his life and his wife left him because of it, so despite wanting to win, they know that to get respect, they have to do the right thing; however, G.B.F. reveals that he lied and he does not even have a wife and that the game is just a hobby of his. Mordecai and Rigby then skewer G.B.F.'s concentration (considering that there aren't any rules), along with the crowd. He had already beaten Mordecai and Rigby's score so it looked like they were finished, until Jack points out that the game is still on. Mordecai and Rigby play while being sabotaged, then beat up G.B.F, such as biting his leg and kicking his chin. Whilst celebrating victory, Mordecai, Rigby, and the crowd witness G.B.F. exploding into goo.
Benson happens to be in the crowd, also covered in brain goo. He decides to bring the checks Mordecai and Rigby wanted, but rips them apart after seeing the two dedicating their time to video games but not their work. He also commands them not to play outside their breaks, and they said that they can respect that.
