The episode

Host segments

Prologue: Jonah and the Bots play Spin the Bottle, and Jonah ends up stuck kissing Tom.

Segment One: The Invention Exchange. Kinga presents the "Band-Eato", letting one wear all the fixings for a Mexican food fiesta. Jonah's is "BB-Servo", which is Tom's head on a BB-8-styled body. This does not go over well with Lucasfilm's lawyers.

Bumper: "Livin' in Deep 13" with plot recap

Song in Theater: "UFO" (occurs about 17 minutes in)

Segment Two: Crow wants a cut of the lucrative sci-fi melodrama pie, so he pens his own screenplay-slash-franchise "Crow T. Robot's World War Space".

Bumper: "To Earth" with info about the Tube.

Segment Three: Akton from the movie (actually Jonah in a costume) pays a visit to the SOL. Crow and Tom are initially excited, but then they see the real Akton for what he's worth, and it's not much.

Bumper: "United Servo Academy Men's Chorus Hymn" with plot recap

Segment Four: While Jonah tries to install eyes on Tom, Kinga and Max are visited by venture capitalist Freak Masterstroke. The Mads try to get him to invest money in their work, but Masterstroke has his own ideas.

Bumper: "The Canada Song" with Moon 13 time & temp

Segment Five: Jonah and the Bots perform a surreal sketch based on the movie's final action sequence, leaving the Mads to wonder if it counts as driving them insane.

Closing credits songs: "United Servo Academy Men's Chorus Hymn" / "The Canada Song" / "Livin' in Deep 13" / "To Earth" / "Sidehackin'" / "Wild Rebels Cereal"

Stinger: Akton smiles and laughs as sci-fi noises are heard.
