"Rage Against the TV"
"Party Pete" is the ninth episode in Season 2 (and twenty-first episode overall) of Regular Show. It first aired on February 21, 2011.
Mordecai and Rigby hire a hard-partying celebrity for their party at the park that they must keep secret from Benson while he takes the night off.
Mordecai and Rigby are cleaning out the attic. Mordecai is moving boxes and Rigby is busy trying to swat a moth. While swatting, Rigby knocks a sheet off of a small refrigerator containing soda from the 1984 Olympic Games (RadiCola). Mordecai and Rigby both agree they should take a break and drink them all out back.
Meanwhile, Benson and Skips are having a conversation downstairs. Mordecai and Rigby overhear it through a vent. Skips is trying to convince Benson to take the day off, telling him that he works too hard. At the same time, Mordecai and Rigby agree to have a party while Benson is taking his night off. They go on the computer and start inviting people based on their attractiveness.
Mordecai and Rigby return from the grocery store, rapping about the supplies for the party they bought. While laying out the supplies. Benson says that he's taking the night off and that Skips is in charge, whistling as he walks out.
Skips tells Mordecai and Rigby that they better throw a party better than the ones he's seen them throw in the past. While Pops naps on the couch, Rigby brags about the party being great, despite nobody showing up. He hands Skips and Pops the sodas they found up in the attic. Skips asks if they're okay to drink, considering it expired nearly twenty years ago.
Three guests finally arrive, confused at the lack of other guests and the rather boring setup. Thinking that they haven't found the right party, they leave. Muscle Man laughs and taunts Mordecai and Rigby for their horrible party.
Mordecai and Rigby walk into the kitchen and see an ad on TV about "Party Pete." Party Pete is a German-accented man with two attractive women who will come to your house to improve your party if it's "tanking." Mordecai says they need Party Pete. Rigby disagrees, because he thinks that he is going to eat all of their snacks.
Rigby tries to save the party by playing a cassette of strange music, and encouraging Skips to dance. Skips declines. Instead he sits on the couch with Pops, Muscle Man and Fives, listening to the awkward music that's playing. Soon, the tape breaks.
Meanwhile, Benson is at his apartment, worrying about the house. Benson convinces himself that it's gonna be fine and gets in the warm bathtub.
Mordecai and Rigby agree that Muscle Man was right about the lame party, and then they call Party Pete for help. Party Pete comes to the door with his female entourage and an ice sculpture shaped like a urinal. However, Mordecai and Rigby can only afford 10 minutes of his time. Pete and his gang go inside and start dancing. Mordecai and Rigby convince him to stay after their minutes are up by offering him their "RadiCola." He says as long as they keep them coming, he'll keep the party going.
Party Pete manages to revive the party, with dozens of guests, including centaurs, showing up; even Muscle Man is seen to be having a good time as he dances with a girl. The party gets rowdier and rowdier until Benson calls. He asks if there is a party over there, and when Mordecai fails to convince him that there isn't, Benson decides to come and check for himself. Mordecai and Rigby then go to Party Pete, who is dancing and glowing yellow. Rigby tells him to stop dancing, but he gets shocked from touching his arm, and Pete says he doesn't want to stop.
Glowing with power, Party Pete inflates and floats into mid-air. Skips tells Mordecai and Rigby to keep giving him soda to drain him of his energy. They keep throwing soda at him until they run out of cans. They then remember the centaur guests dumped some soda into the urinal ice sculpture. They throw that, causing Party Pete to explode as everyone else flees the house.
Mordecai and Rigby say that it's impossible to clean up the exploded mess, but the centaur guests and the park employees all offer to help. Everyone cleans up then escapes via the back door; Muscle Man takes some garbage with him as a souvenir.
When Benson arrives, Mordecai and Rigby are sitting on the couch playing video games like normal. After checking the house (even under a rug), Benson believes there must not have been a party after all.
Benson tells Mordecai and Rigby that there is a present for them. It turns out to be the RadiCola. Mordecai closes the episode by saying to Rigby, "We're dead."
