Mordecai and Rigby's lies end up leading them to an astronaut compound while trying to purchase a "Grilled Cheese Deluxe" for Benson.
Rigby brought Mordecai some grilled cheese deluxe sandwiches from a restaurant called Cheezer's to eat while watching some funny internet videos (which Mordecai didn't like). Benson comes in and says that was his grilled cheese sandwich. Rigby tries to lie to Benson, but Benson didn't believe the story (since the bag having Benson's name on it proves the lie didn't work), and orders Mordecai (selfishly, because he did nothing bad) and Rigby to get off their "lazy butts" and go get him another "Grilled Cheese Deluxe". The duo find themselves in a long line to Cheezer's. They argue about who is the better liar. After Mordecai punches Rigby in the stomach, two astronauts in blue jackets walk around the line and enter the restaurant. Rigby recovers from the punch and teases Mordecai, touching his face and pressuring him into lying that they're astronauts too. They enter the restaurant as astronauts and get a grilled cheese, but then Rigby goes to the real astronauts and goes as far as telling them that Mordecai is his captain. Mordecai quickly tells the astronauts that they have to go back to the compound. One of them offers a ride while the other one realizes that he has never seen them before. Rigby explains that they just got back from a ten-year space trip and Mordecai includes that they got transferred. The astronauts decide to give them a ride and a tour of the compound.
After entering the compound, Mordecai and Rigby say that they forgot their I.D. The astronauts let them use their I.D.s and gives them a blue space jacket. Rigby puts the grilled cheese in his jacket and tells the astronauts that Mordecai wants his in pink. Mordecai then explains that he borrowed a pair from Dr. Asinovskovich (who was standing in front of them). She says that she doesn't remember Mordecai who tries to remind her of the conference. She then looks uneasy and runs away.
A montage of Mordecai and Rigby getting a tour while making the astronauts laugh with their lies is played (with the song "Lies" by the Thompson Twins as the background music), and the group make a last stop at the Anti-Matter Chamber. One of the astronauts greets the only scientist named Jimmy then jokes that he can't understand what "these science types say." Rigby tells another lie, saying that Mordecai knows about anti-matter. Mordecai tries to tell the astronauts that Rigby knows more which leads to an argument about who knows more on the subject of anti-matter while an alarm sound is going off. Jimmy explains that he's having trouble with the anti-matter and is interrupted when an astronaut tells Mordecai and Rigby to help.
After messing around with the buttons, Major Williams comes and yells at them. The alarm becomes louder as the anti-matter becomes unstable. The astronauts put Mordecai and Rigby into the chamber, so they can fix it. They argue about whose fault it is, so Mordecai lies to the astronauts that he has a condition which makes him forget things in stress and that Rigby is an idiot. Jimmy explains that they have to throw a solid object into the anti-matter. The astronauts tell Mordecai to throw Rigby into the anti-nucleus. Mordecai grabs Rigby (who's crying), but takes the grilled cheese sandwich and throws it into the anti-nucleus. The anti-matter explodes and becomes stable, causing Mordecai and Rigby to slam into the door. When everybody came to them, Rigby tells them that they're not astronauts. The astronauts throw them outside of their house and threatened them. Mordecai and Rigby returned to Benson who questioned what happened to his grilled cheese (which is burned up). Rigby tries to explain the truth, but Benson believes Mordecai, who lied that they ran it over by accident, and the episode ends with Benson asking the two if it was so hard to tell the truth.
