Jonah and the bots are in Moon 13 working on the containment rack when Servo and Crow discover that Moon 13 was a former NASA black ops skunk works. They've grabbed the base's plans and the boneheads are chasing them, but they're not very good at it. Jonah hides the plans in the containment rack as the bots run. The boneheads run past as Jonah is sucked up the SOL.
When the bots return, Jonah tells them that they're not even halfway through the Gauntlet and the bots break into tears. For the invention exchange, Jonah demonstrates his hand dryer/air hockey table. Kinga and Max show the trio their drone probes, using motion-capture rigs. Unfortunately, the drone probes are cute little puppets, and Jonah and the bots easily cut the strings. Kinga sends them their new movie, Lords of the Deep.
At the first break, Crow and Servo show Jonah a cylinder full of white goop just like the goop in the movie. When they shove his hand in the cylinder, Jonah talks about his mother using a rectal thermometer on him when he was 5. He dismisses it as a gag, but Crow does it again and Jonah describes another shameful memory. Jonah dismisses it as a running gag, so the bots do it again.
At the second break, Crow and Servo have an argument and Jonah suggests that they settle with it a cute children's rhyme. The rhyme goes on for quite a while. Meanwhile, Kinga and Max host a morning talk show Jonah makes a pizza.
Jonah and the bots discuss whether hanging out in a Muppet brain is better than the Gauntlet. Kinga calls to introduce Dr. Donna St. Phibes of the Habitat for B-Movie Monsters. She has a female Lord of the Deep with her and it has on a protective hood because it's violent outside of its habitat. Kinga insists that Donna remove the hood, and when Donna does so it bites her head and sends telepathic visions to Kinga and Max.
