(Episode begins at the Park Managers' Lodge. Gene is starting a meeting.)
Gene: Alright, alright. Everybody settle down. The annuat Park Managers' Lodge $50 Chili Cook-Off will be this weekend, and as always, the cost of your ingredients cannot be more than $50.
(Benson is sitting at the apprentice table with two other lodge members, drinking from an orange juice box.)
Gene (continued): Day 1 will be an elimination round, and Day 2, finalists will complete in a no-holds barred arena match. Celebrity chef Sean Ben Pimento will judge.
(The lodge members talk amongst themselves.)
Gene (continued): The winner will get the undivided respect of the entire lodge!
(The lodge members cheer.)
Benson: (gasps) Respect...(stands up) I want to enter!
(The lodge members gasp.)
Park Manager #1: Benson, no!
Park Manager #2: Gene wins every year.
Gene: Ah, let the apprentice enter. Not like he's gonna beat me.
(The lodge members laugh.)
Park Manager #2: Let's have a preemptive celebration in Gene's honor!
(The lodge members rush off to celebrate, leaving Benson alone.)
Benson: (quietly) I gotta win this chili cook-off!
(Cut to Mordecai, Rigby and Skips at the Snack Bar.)
Mordecai: So I saw my 5th grade teacher at the grocery store yesterday.
