Retik orders Krog to drop an atomic bomb on a crater in order to trigger a volcanic eruption. Krog complies, and the eruption causes torrential rains and flooding which seriously disrupt transportation and defense measures on Earth.
Tom Gregory (Hutton), a Los Angeles-based sports reporter, is flying into L.A. and lands his private plane after a rough descent through some kind of opaque midair disturbance, only to find the airport deserted. He meets Professor Galvin (Burton) and his two daughters, Bonnie (Judee Morton) and Lisa (Susan Hart), who tell him that the city has been overrun by huge, hulking, slime-covered subterraneans called Slime People, who appeared out of the sewers and other underground water concentrations. Appearing out of a strange thick fog apparently generated by a device of their own, they've killed hundreds, possibly thousands, panicked the population, fought the army to a standstill, and have now cut off the city with a wall of solidified fog. The professor's reasoning that salt would be effective against slug-like creatures gives them a weapon against the Slime People. But clearing them all out and freeing the city requires an assault against the creatures' own stronghold, which becomes even more essential when Bonnie is taken prisoner. 
Prologue: Joel and Tom are having a rough morning, but Crow shows up all chipper complete with a "morning poem". Tom follows up that he hates "morning bots".
Joel - cartoon eyeglasses
Mads - screaming cotton candy
Segment Two: Crow and Tom take Commando Cody to 'reality court'
Segment Three: Joel and the bots talk about how stupid the movie is, then go off on a tangent about how to create a better show
Segment Four: The bots fill the Satellite of Love with lots of thick fog
Ending Segment: Joel bakes a pie and reads a letter
- "must be the granddaddy of all storms"... It's the granddaddy all right; some really gnarly fog happening. Joel is apparently referencing the indica strain Grndaddy purple which is known to be a quite powewrful "medication". ahem.........why were Joel's eyes always half closed??
- "Well, it's a broken water main Ralphy Boy" - Ed Norton from the TV show [Honeymooners]: he worked in the sewers of NYC.
- "Oh it's Tom[Waits] on a bender"....- the blonde guy resembles the American singer/actor
- Bobcat [Goldthwait]- the screaming guy resembles the american comedians act
- "Hey mikey, she likes it!" while kissing the girl. reference to a classic Life cereal's commercial from the 1970's line said by Little mikey
- "Lovely, Lovely!" -this is a reference to the necktie killer in Alfred Hitchcock's Frenzy.
