"The Best Burger in the World" is the twenty-first episode in Season Three (and sixty-first episode overall) of Regular Show. It first aired on April 9, 2012.


When a once-in-a-lifetime event to try 'The Best Burger in the World' comes, Mordecai and Rigby end up becoming desperate for it when Benson prohibits them from doing so until they have finished a whole week's worth of their neglected work.


Mordecai, Rigby, Muscle Man, Hi Five Ghost, Skips and Pops are sitting on the front steps of the house excitedly discussing the Grill 'Em Up Truck and its 'best burger in the world' – The Ulti-Meatum. Benson then pulls up on a golf cart and gives everyone a list of work to do before they can get their burger. Benson tells Mordecai and Rigby that they have a large amount of work to do, which culminates in cleaning out Skips' garage. As usual, Mordecai and Rigby had slacked off the previous week and neglected to do all these particular jobs. Benson then states that if Mordecai and Rigby do not finish all the work, they will be prohibited from getting an Ulti-Meatum.

After several attempts to get a burger whilst working to be caught by Benson, Mordecai and Rigby are desperate to get an Ulti-Meatum. They resort to asking the group to buy them a burger, only to be told by Skips that the truck serves one burger per customer. Seeing the group each rave about the burger, Mordecai and Rigby become disappointed that their prospects of getting one are minimal. Shortly, Benson pulls up and finds the two not working. He assigns them to cleaning up Skips' garage and putting Pops' possessions into storage.

Mordecai and Rigby are frustrated and tired from cleaning the garage, but press on for the Ulti-Meatum. During the cleaning, they find a large object covered by a sheet and uncover it to find that it is a machine known as the Hologram 9000. Rigby quickly suggests that they make holograms to trick Benson into thinking that they are working, but Mordecai disagrees citing that they are almost done and it says it can kill you. Suddenly, the truck announces the last call for burgers and Mordecai changes his mind.

Rigby enters the machine and Mordecai sets the Hologram 9000 to Extremely Realistic, the highest setting. Holograms of the duo are soon created but are completely still with odd expressions and poses. Mordecai and Rigby set them up so that it looks as if they are working and wait to see if Benson falls for it. Benson shortly drives by and speaks to the holograms as if they are the genuine article.

Mordecai and Rigby run to the Grill 'Em Up Truck to order their burgers from the head chef Ajay Maldonaldo. As the chef cooks the burgers, Benson makes another couple of visits to the Hologram-Mordecai and Hologram-Rigby. He becomes suspicious when he notices that on every visit they are standing in the same positions and do not answer his questions. Benson approaches the holograms and pushes them both over, finally realizing that Mordecai and Rigby have tricked him as he drives away in a rage. The holograms look at each other, the first movement they make since their creation.

The burgers are still cooking when Benson suddenly drives towards Mordecai and Rigby. The burgers finish and the chef comments that they are getting the last two burgers in a centennial. When Mordecai and Rigby reach for the burgers, their hands are slapped aside by their hologram counterparts. Mordecai, Rigby and Benson fight with the holograms but are defeated easily. Rigby picks up a rock and throws it at his hologram, shattering a hole in him. Realizing this, Mordecai and Rigby begin pelting the holograms with rocks.

Finally, Rigby takes the wheel stopper from the Grill 'Em Up Truck, causing it to roll downhill. He and Mordecai throw it at their holograms, shattering them to pieces. They voice their excitement to finally eat the burgers, but turn to see Benson spitefully eating them as retribution for the hologram ruse. They speechlessly watch Benson finish the burgers and mockingly sympathize with them. Benson then drives away and Mordecai suggests they try to get more burgers, but they turn to see the truck is gone. Meanwhile, the truck rolls downhill into the Crash Pit with both the chef and server inside and explodes.
