Slow the Plot down is a song from the episode Mighty Jack. Joel and the bots are singing a sea chanty, in typical sailor/pirate-speak.

Lyrics

Joel (with concertina): Well aye, me limey buckos. The movie's over, the pain is passed and I's feel like singing a plot shanty. Be lively, now, me Bonnie Raitts!


Bots: Arrrr! Arrrr!


All (singing): Ohhh slow the plot down, laddy/Slow the plot down/Way hey/Slow the plot down!

We'll scuttle the story/and run her aground/We'll try so hard/to slow the plot down!


Bots: Arrrr! Arrrr!


Joel (spoken, normal): Okay now who can tell me their favorite scene from the movie so far? Tom?


Tom: Okay, sure. There was the--uh...Arrrr!


(Music starts)


All (singing): Ohh slow the plot down, laddy/Slow the plot down/Way heySlow the plot down

With German, Italian/and Japanese clowns/We'll try so hard/to slow the plot down!


Joel (spoken, normal): Okay How 'bout you, Crow? You must be full to bursting with some fond memories of today's movie. Come on think hard!


Tom: Arrrr!


Crow: Huh? Oh. Uh...ummm...Ahh, jeez, Joel! I'm drawing a blank!


Tom: Yeah, me too.


Crow: Oh, I remember vaguely a guy... locked in a room! With another guy... and... someone... running. Arrrr!


(music starts)


All (singing): We'll make you a movie/that's long immense/Way hey/Slow the plot down

Just give us a script/that makes no friggin' sense/We'll try so hard/to slow the plot down


Joel (spoken, normal): Well, c'mon you guys! I can remember, I, for one, in vivid detail, A frogman who, uh... Just who IS Mighty Jack, anyway?


Crow: Arrrr!


Tom: Oh, wow! It just hit me! The scene where Quequeg sits motionless on the deck, meditating, foretelling the death of the crew...


Crow: Yeah! And Scout sees Atticus shoot the mad dog in the street and Alice Ghostly--


Joel: I remember! Patrick Swayze walks in and says


All: It's MY way or the highway! Arrrr Arrrr Arrrr


Joel: C'mon you guys...


Crow: Oh My brain hurts


Tom: Oh, Joel I'm so confused!


Joel: It's really not that bad, you guys. I, for one, actually feel like I just got done listening to two hours of Lou Reed's 'Metal Machine Music' You know my brain feels clean as a whistle!


Crow (as Rommel from Sidehackers): And that’s pretty good!


Tom: That’s not half bad! Let’s take it home.


All (singing, off tempo): So slow the plot down, laddies/Slow the plot down/Way hey/Slow the plot down

Just scuttle the story/and run her aground/We'll try so hard/to slow the plot down!
