(Episode starts in Eileen's house, where Mordecai, Rigby and Margaret are watching a TV show.)
Man on TV: And now, commentary from RGB2!
RGB2: If you ask this old-timer, TV peaked in the 80s! Why don't shows have laugh tracks anymore?
(Eileen pokes her head out from the kitchen.)
Eileen: Sorry to keep you guys waiting. I know you're hungry but my famous peanut butter and celery appetizers will be out in a jiffy.
(The TV switches to an advertisement for Seeds of Agony by Jonno.)
Jonno: Audacieusement modern, contrasté, avant- ... garde. These are all words you might say when you gaze upon my piece, Seeds of Agony. (Zooms out to show a giant strawberry behind her.) You won't want to miss this cultural event before it is taken by blimp back to my minimalist region studio and destroyed. The venue? (Laughs.) A transitional local between the realms of light and dreams.
(TV shows a map which displays where Seeds of Agony is.)
TV voiceover: Off of Spruce and I 95 at dusk by the Cheezer's. Saturday only!
Jonno voiceover: Whimsical!
(Shows the three on the couch.)
Mordecai: Wow, that sounds crazy.
Rigby: (Laughs mischievously.) Crazy enough to work!
Mordecai: Dude, what are you talking about?
(Rigby leans over to whisper to them.)
Rigby: Can you guys keep a secret? (Checks to see if anyone is watching.) I'm taking Eileen to see that tomorrow! And you guys are coming with! And, you're not gonna ruin the surprise!
Margaret: It sounds a little intense.
Mordecai: And why's it gotta be a surprise? Is it a special occasion or something?
Rigby: No, and that's the point! She'd be expecting something if it was. I've made her laugh, cry, scream with terror when she fell into that cave hole; all the big emotions. But she's too smart to be surprised!
Mordecai: No way.
Rigby: If there's a mystery, she has to solve it. Whenever I try to surprise Eileen, she figures it out immediately.
(Shows a flashback scene of Rigby dressed in murder-mystery-style clothing.)
Rigby: Good evening, my lady. I'm here to warn you that trouble's afoot. You see, there's been a mur-
Eileen: (Squeals) You're taking me to a murder mystery, right?
Rigby: Uh... yes.
Eileen: Great! I already picked out a dress so we could go!
(Shows another flashback scene. Rigby is holding a telescope and not wearing any special clothes.)
Rigby: Surprise! I'm taking you-
Eileen: To the conjunction of the Moon and Mars up on Lookout Mountain? I know! I'm so excited!
(Shows another scene where Rigby is simply at Eileen's house without any items or clothes.)
Eileen: You're taking me to the biannual mating season of the Hermit Crabs? You're the best!
(Cuts back to the house.)
Rigby: She's smart like that, dude. So I thought of a plan so crazy she'll never figure it out. Will you guys help drive us around?
Mordecai: Dude, you're being kinda crazy, but at least it's a nice kind of crazy.
Margaret: I think that's sweet Rigby. Of course we'll help you.
(Eileen walks into the room carrying a tray of celery and peanut butter.)
Eileen: Who wants celery and peanut butter? Wait, I smell a surprise brewing.
Rigby: No. You don't
Eileen: You're taking me to a movie after this.
(Rigby jumps off the couch.)
Rigby: Ha, noooo!
(Walks up with his face close to Eileen's head.)
Rigby: Is there even a surprise at all? Who's to say?
(He walks away. Eileen thinks. Margaret and Mordecai pretend to not know.)
(Transitions to the coffee shop. Eileen is working when Rigby walks in. He is wearing beach shorts, a formal jacket, and a hat. He is holding a flower.)
Eileen: I'm gonna say, based on your beach-casual look, combined with formal jacket and corsage, we're going to... Beach Prom! That's the most fun party of the year!
Rigby: Oh, Eileen, Eileen, Eileen, Eileen. I have a different surprise in store for you. And this time, you're never gonna be able to guess it! Now ditch the apron, we're heading out.
Eileen: Wait, but I still have to work.
Rigby: Talked to your boss, it's taken care of.
(They look over to where a random guy is.)
Random guy: Hey, fifty years from now, are you gonna remember bussing tables, or the greatest adventure of your life? Now get out of here you crazy kids.
Eileen: Rigby, I don't know who that is.
Rigby: He's a guy who gets it. But don't worry, I did talk to your boss.
(They walk out together.)
Eileen: Hmmm, if it's not Beach Prom, are we going to Costa Rica?
Rigby: No need to guess, just enjoy the surprise.
Eileen: Maybe your outfit is a red herring.
(They walk over to where Margaret and Mordecai are waiting for them next to Margaret's car. They pretend to be randomly running into them.)
Margaret: Woah... Craaaazy running into you guys. Soooo random.
Mordecai: Need a lift?
Eileen: (Thinking) But that could also be a red herring of said red herring, meaning... (Puts on a jacket from inside the car.) Beach Prom!
Rigby: JUST GET IN THE CAR!
(Transition to the four driving.)
Eileen: I'd say we're about fifteen miles outside of downtown heading northwest. The temperature has dropped approximately three degrees, which puts us near that shoe store I like, but... (Calculates on her fingers.) Yup, we'd overshoot it by about nine-hundred feet. (Notices Sea Turtle Fan Club at the Super Hotel 25.) Ah! Sea Turtle Fan Club! I just paid my dues! That's so nice, Rigby!
(Rigby's watch beeps.)
Rigby: And... time to turn around. (He puts on a doctor's shirt and hat, as well as a stethoscope.)
Rigby: Uh, make a u-turn up here!
(They turn around and eventually get to the Park.)
Rigby: Alright, everyone get out and go behind the house.
(They walk behind the house, where there is rope, three chairs, a cardboard box, tiki torches and a parachute. Eileen thinks. The scene shows a first-person view of Eileen's brain, which looks like a futuristic computer. She combines the items to show a hot air balloon.)
Eileen: I've got it! You're building a hot air balloon with all this stuff for us to ride in!
Muscle Man: That stuff's for a birthday at the park later, which you guys better be back for.
I'm not working it by myself after last time.
Look, I'm sorry about that brush fire, but I don't think we'll make it back in time.
Rigby's plan might last all month.
Rigby: Speaking of which, round 'em up! Back in the car!
Muscle Man: Not cool, bros!
Eileen: Rigby, I have to say this is the best surprise you've ever done. (?) But that doesn't mean I won't figure out what it is.
Well, you won't, unless you know what's that way!
Uh, that seems kind of shady.
Yeah. Very shady.
Is there even time?
We might not make it if we go this way.
Oh, no. We'll make it.
Dude, the sun's going down.
That thing that we're trying to do is gonna end soon.
Now go over that hill.
Come on, man.
We got to turn around.
We have no business
These guys are probably cool.
We just need to drive past.
We'll blend right in.
Okay. All right.
Just keep driving. Just...
Not all right!
Wow. I honestly
don't know what's next.
I am terrified
beyond all reason, though.
Um, can I help you?
I'd say y'all
don't blend right in.
Where are you headed?
Sorry. Can't tell you.
Trying to surprise
Oh, a surprise, huh?
You know, my old man
surprised me once.
Now he's dead...
...set on never
surprising me again!
Long story short,
you best be telling me
where you're going.
No surprises on the road.
That's the biker law.
No! It's a surprise!
Rigby, come on.
I can just act surprised later.
Rigby! Oh, my gosh!
I love it!
That's not a real surprise face!
Rigby, just tell him.
Dude, it's over.
These aren't rational guys, Rigby.
Uh, sir, I can tell you.
No! I want to hear it
from this guy!
Withhold information, we throw you off the cliff.
Second biker law.
BIKER: You gonna tell us now?
How about now?!
Maybe you should tell them, Rigby.
I'd really like to live to see the surprise.
But telling them wouldn't make it a surprise anymore.
I've been at this for too long.
I'm not giving up now.
Get 'em out of the car!
Now, come on, boy.
This is your last chance.
I'd really like to know what that surprise is.
You and everyone else!
I'd rather die than give up the one thing that might surprise Eileen.
I'll never break.
So be it.
You're gonna get it.
BIKER: All right! Ladies first!
I don't want to die!
Rigby: All right! You win!
I'll tell you!
I brought you to see a giant strawberry!
I can't believe it!
Seeds of Agony by Jonno?
I'm really here!
But-- but there was the Sea Turtle Club, the balloon at the park, the observatory...
but then we ended up here.
What does it all mean?
You guys, too?
I knew it!
You slippery devil.
I knew I couldn't outsmart you, so I had to out-crazy you with the craziest fake plan of all time!
Are you surprised?
Yes, I'm surprised!
And I'm sorry I couldn't just go with the flow.
My critical mind is a blessing and a curse.
Thanks for sticking with me.
I really love this surprise, Rigby.
Also, who are these guys?
Oh, we're the troupe from the murder mystery you attended.
We wanted to help Rigby after you guessed the culprit within seconds of arrival.
So we just threw on our old
Motorcycle gang voices
a-and lent a hand.
Yes, it was a delight to reprise our roles.
Oh, I thought you looked familiar, but I was too paralyzed with fear to guess.
Anybody want anything from the car?
Yeah. Surprise me.
Dude, I can't believe your plan worked.
Yeah, it was sweet.
Then it was terrifying.
But now it's sweet again.
I wish you would have told us about that motorcycle gang.
Part of the surprise.
What are you gonna do?
Rgardless, I'm still really impressed you did all that.
Well, it's Eileen.
