"Operation: Hear No Evil" is the fourteenth episode in Season 8 (and two hundred and thirty-first overall) of Regular Show. It first aired on October 11, 2016.

Synopsis

Mordecai and Rigby want to avoid spoilers of their favorite TV show.

Plot

In the Space Tree barracks, Muscle Man, High-Five Ghost, Eileen, Skips, and Pops introduce Mordecai and Rigby to the show Lazer Hunters, and they decide to give it a try. In order to catch up for the show's finale, Muscle Man gives them the CDs of the 8 previous seasons. Rigby remembers that they had a job to do for Benson, but they decide it can be put off for later.

After spending an entire week watching all 8 seasons, Mordecai and Rigby finish the show, just in time for the finale. As the gather around to watch it, Benson walks in and orders them to vacuum the floors in The Park's house, which still hadn't been done. Because of the size of the Space Tree, they would not come back in time for the finale. They ask Eileen to record it for them, and go to the park.

After the finale ends, Muscle Man runs toward the house to tell Mordecai and Rigby about the ending. They run away from him to avoid spoilers, and retrieve a backpack full of items to prevent any more: headphones, loud music, and a checklist. They then go back to the barracks to retrieve the tape with the finale recording.

Back at the house, Benson notices the incomplete work, and decides to track down Mordecai and Rigby to spoil the ending, as a punishment for not doing their job.

Equipped with earplugs, Mordecai and Rigby climb into the ceiling ducts to get to their room, in order to avoid Benson standing outside. Mordecai lowers Rigby down, and Rigby grabs the tape. However, Benson catches them, and chases them through the air duct and around the Space Tree until they get back to their room and lock the door. Benson jumps out from his hiding spot under the bed covers and threatens to spoil the ending, now that Mordecai and Rigby have nowhere to go. However, Mordecai threatens to spoil the ending of Benson's favorite show, DR. Whiskers M.D.. Because of this, Benson decides to let Mordecai and Rigby finish their show without spoilers. Just as they begin to watch it, Chance Sureshot walks into their room and spoils the ending for both shows, not knowing that they hadn't watched it.

Trivia

  • Muscle Man informed Mordecai and Rigby that "Lazer Hunters" has eight seasons, referencing how Regular Show itself has eight seasons with Season 8 being the last one.
    • With this being one of the last episodes, this could be the show's way of addressing its eventual end.

Episode Connections

  • After Muscle Man started to cry after watching "Lazer Hunters", Rigby noticed and asked if he was crying. This happened before in the Season 2 episode "Muscle Woman", only this time Muscle Man admits to crying and says it's part of what makes him a man rather than denying it (demonstrating character development in Muscle Man).

Pop Culture References

  • The witch shriek from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and Sleeping Beauty is heard while Mordecai and Rigby watch Lazer Hunters.
  • The "squid in the percolator" line is a direct reference to Twin Peaks.

Production Notes
