The episode starts with Muscle Man, High-Five Ghost, Thomas, and Johnny Skydiver launching pumpkins with a catapult. In the house, Eileen talks to a broom and Audrey takes a picture of Quips while everone else's mingles. Moments later, Muscle Man and High-Five Ghost come into Benson's office where Benson tells them (and everyone else, already inside) about the wishing machine. Everyone looks disinterested, but Benson insists that they stay and that he would not let his deposit go to waste; to demonstrate, Benson wishes that he could motivate Mordecai and Rigby at work. Racki the Wishmaker then says, "A hard worker is all you desire, so to their backside let us add some fire." Racki's and Benson's eyes glow red while he laughs maniacally, and the first story begins.
Mr. Boss Man (Benson's Wish)
Mordecai and Rigby are seen sitting on the couch watching TV. There is an advertisement for a "Salad Guillotine" (Off with your head... of lettuce!) that Mordecai and Rigby suddenly want. Benson comes in and makes Mordecai and Rigby do their work. Suddenly, another commercial airs where the same person from the previous ad is advertising a puppet named "Mr. Boss Man." The phone number is shown after Benson tells the TV to show it, and he calls in to order a puppet. Throughout the story, every time the duo is caught slacking and Benson uses Mr. Boss Man to tell them to get back to work, they feel creeped out, and he always insists it's not him telling them, but the puppet. At one point, Mr. Boss Man insults Mordecai about relationships and Rigby about his stuttering (when he tries to stand up for him). As Benson walks away, saying he is a good boss, the puppet turns to look at him... uh oh. Later on, while Benson is asleep, MBM keeps telling him how to sleep and he complies until he is told to pack up and never come back. Now Benson is awake and sees MBM fall onto the floor. Annoyed, he goes over to pick him up, only to have him turn his head 180° and yells "THIS IS MY HOUSE NOW!", causing Benson to scream and throw him against the wall. Then MBM says that Benson doesn't need this job because he was the one motivating the workers and he had to support his family (who are standing at the window). MBM's head spins wildly as Benson runs away, trying to crack his head between the door which doesn't work fully. Eventually, Benson makes it to the house and runs in on Mordecai and Rigby using the guillotine and yells that he's trying to kill him. Right after that, the puppet launches himself through the glass of the window and onto Benson, who screams, "Get this dummy off of me!" The duo try kicking him off which doesn't work, so they suggest using the guillotine. Benson launches MBM right into the opening, and the puppet screams they don't have the guts (or chimichangas, to be specific) to drop the blade, being proven wrong when Benson walks over and does it himself. The head is still talking about excape while Benson compliments the duo on their quick thinking and smarts, which, funny enough, was the scary part of the story for him.
Benson snaps back to it, saying "I'd never say something like that!" when his eyes are normal again
