Jinx is the sixteenth episode in Season Two (and the twenty-eighth episode overall) of Regular Show. It first aired on April 18, 2011.

Synopsis[]

Rigby falls victim to a game of jinxing, and unleashes a demonic form of himself to the park after trying to break the jinx himself.

Plot[]

Mordecai and Rigby are cleaning The Park, since trash is scattered across it, Rigby finds bronze baby shoes and Mordecai finds a small, plastic, green, war soldier. After their findings, Mordecai and Rigby discover a quarter laying about. They both say the same phrase, after spotting the quarter; then Mordecai yells, "jinx!" and he erupts a punching-spree onto Rigby, shortly after Rigby responding to Mordecai's explanation on how the game worked (A montage of Rigby being punched by Mordecai is shown).

Mordecai tells Rigby there is a way to "un-jinx" himself (have someone say his name 3 times); infuriated, Rigby looks for a person to break the jinx. First, Rigby finds Benson and begins to ask him to break the jinx, but Benson interrupts him and demands him to do his job. Rigby sees Mordecai and does not talk, afterward yet Rigby begins throwing cans at Benson to make him repeat his name; but, after his third strike at Benson, Benson, instead of saying his name, has a violent outburst, roaring and screaming as throws and kicks a trash can around. Rigby yells at Benson to say his name again, but Mordecai appears behind him and punches him for talking. Rigby flees to find someone else.

Rigby finds Pops and without talking, directs him to try and say his name three times (as a form of charades). Pops cannot guess what Rigby is trying to refer to. Mordecai comes about and insults Rigby's ability to play charades, to which Pops agrees to. Rigby makes a remark on his charade skills and is punched once more by Mordecai. Pops easily realizes that Rigby has been jinxed so the latter runs off to find another to break the jinx.

Rigby goes to Skips' house and writes to him about his situation; Mordecai is near Rigby, again. Skips declares that writing is talking for some and then Mordecai and Skips proceed to punch Rigby. After making sounds of agony, Skips also declares sound-making is talking, resulting in some more punches to Rigby. Rigby flees to find another person. Mordecai asks Skips if he wanted to come with him to follow Rigby; Skips, remarking he has nothing to do, agrees, and the two leave Skips' shack.

Rigby comes across Hi Five Ghost, who is also jinxed as he witnesses Hi Five Ghost's consequences for talking (being punched by Muscle Man). Rigby frees Hi Five Ghost from his jinx and Hi Five Ghost travels away, forgetting to 'un-jinx' Rigby; however, Muscle Man tells Rigby a way to 'un-jinx' himself. Unbeknownst to Rigby, this was just Muscle Man pulling a mean-spirited prank. Mordecai and Skips then appear and ask Muscle Man if he knows about Rigby's whereabouts. Muscle Man explains his prank on Rigby, which appears to be an omen so Skips and Mordecai chase after Rigby.

Rigby locks himself in the park's public bathroom, cutting all the lights off, and turning on all the water faucets. The faucet's water create a mist for the mirror. Mordecai and Skips try to stop him from doing the ritual, but Rigby persists and thinks that Mordecai and Skips are just going to continue hitting him again but Mordecai seriously promises him that they won't this time, they just want him to come out of the bathroom to just break the jinx but Rigby still doesn't believe him and tells him to just break it now but Skips tells Rigby that it doesn't work that way when he's in the bathroom it only works when they're together, he just ignores the fact and continues the mirror thing but Mordecai is still warning him that Muscle Man doesn't know what he's talking about, the latter beginning to write his name as it appears backwards in another spot on the mirror. After finishing, he begins to say his name; soon, something appears in the mirror and after the third time, a demon lunges out of the mirror. He tries to slaughter Rigby with his claws, but Rigby dodges. Rigby runs into a bathroom stall, which is occupied. Rigby leaves the public bathroom and the demon slices the man out of the bathroom.

Mordecai, Rigby, and Skips begin to run away from the Jinx Monster, who is slashing people around the park. Benson, Muscle Man, and Skips meet a terrible fate. Mordecai tells Rigby to recall what he did to summon the monster. Mordecai and Rigby begin saying his name three times, but nothing happens. The pair drives into an infected blockade and leave a hostage-held Pops. Mordecai and Rigby see the monster and make a U-turn towards the restroom. Rigby says his name three times, nothing happens. Mordecai helps Rigby say his name three times, nothing happens. An infected crowd, including Pops now, begin closing in on Mordecai and Rigby. Their breath creates the supernatural mist on the mirror, revealing Rigby's name forwards and backwards. Mordecai and Rigby begin yelling, "Ybgir" 3 times. The creature leaps towards Mordecai and Rigby, but is transported back into the mirror.

Everybody is then seen partially in their underwear, not remember what happened, earlier. Benson, who doesn't wear clothes, still remembers what he told Mordecai and Rigby to do and commands Mordecai and Rigby clean up the mess; however, Skips (not in his underwear) remembers the happening, claiming his mind as a "steel trap". Skips tells the duo not to do that again. Mordecai and Rigby say, "we won't". Rigby calls a jinx on Mordecai and begins punches him multiple times, unsuccessfully due to the former's small fists. Mordecai says he has sympathy on Rigby for his inability to full enjoy the game, due to his weak punches; feeling insulted, Rigby pokes Mordecai in the eye as the episode ends.

Trivia[]

Pop Culture References[]

  • How Rigby summons the monster to unjinx himself is similar to the Bloody Mary myth. The myth goes: if you lock yourself (or more people) in the bathroom, turn the lights off, look into a mirror and say "Bloody Mary" (in this case "Rigby") three times, then you would see Bloody Mary. This is similar to what Rigby did since he did all of the things you do for the Bloody Mary myth, though Rigby adds two more things (the water faucets and writing his name).
    • The way to banish the demon back to its dimension is by the victim saying their name backward, which in Rigby's case, was "Ybgir". Incidentally, another character who is a Rigby doppelganger is called Ygbir.
  • The gimmick with the monsters is like the werewolf's curse, in which the main monster scratched its victims, turning them into monsters, but a werewolf has to bite its victims to inflict the curse. Coincidentally, the time this event happened was at night, which during a full moon is when the werewolf's curse takes effect.
  • The part where Negative Rigby crash opens the toilet space in the public bathroom and finds the man who was sitting in the toilet, is a parody of the scene in the 1993 Stephen Spielberg movie Jurassic Park, where the Tyrannosaurus rex crashes through the bathroom building where it finds and eats Gennaro while he is sitting on the toilet.
