[The episode starts off with Teamster, Enid, Rad, and K.O. fixing the plaza]
Lord Boxman: Those little urchins… destroying their own plaza… as if I couldn’t destroy it myself?! Oh, I’ll show them. I’ll attack the plaza right now! Better than they ever could! [Laughs and holds out a weapon] [Titlecard appears]
Cosma: Lord Boxman! [Vormulax, Cosma, and Billiam Milliam are in a meeting] Are you leaving in the middle of a meeting with your board of investors?
Lord Boxman: Oh. I thought we had finished, Ms. Cosma. You guys should really try those muffins, by the by.
[Cosma growls, transporting the muffins to Lord Boxman’s mouth and the basket on his head]
Cosma: You have been wasting your time and ours attacking a bunch of kids across the street, instead of building robotic henchmen! [Stands up] Our production schedule is completely below quota! Why do you even feel the need to attack these children in the first place?!
Lord Boxman: [Takes the basket off] Uh! [Spits out the muffins] Blegk! Uh. [Chuckles] I don’t need to. It’s just a side hobby. Nothing to be concerned over, Cosma.
Cosma: Well, in that case, I’m going to make you a wager. I challenge you to leave those kids alone and focus on your actual job for a full 24 hours.
Lord Boxman: Or?
Cosma: Or you’re fired!
Lord Boxman: Uh, but you’re just my board of investors. You— You can’t “fire” me, per se.
Cosma: But we can certainly stop funding your business. No more money, which means no more Boxmore. I’ll be checking in with you in 24 hours. Good luck.
Lord Boxman: Oh, silly, silly Cosma. Why not give me a real challenge? [Puts his legs on top of his desk] I can do this. Heh. I’ve already gotten through half the day like no— Ugh. No matter! [Turns his desk around] But in the meantime… can’t hurt to have one little hate peek.
[A group of Teamster clones are rebuilding the plaza. Enid, Rad, and K.O. are having fun]
Lord Boxman: Oh, that’s disgusting. How they just ruin my day with all their j-joy and f-f-friendship! Why, that just makes me want t-o-o-o-o-o… [Turns red, about to push a button]
Cosma: [Thought head] Don’t attack the plaza for 24 hours, or you’re fired!
Lord Boxman: [Turns back his desk] Whoopsie! Heh. Don’t want to attack the plaza. Not going to attack the plaza! No plaza attacking. [Giggling] Do-do-do-do. [His fingers walks close to the button. But walks back] [Sighs] Yes. [Turns his chair back and forth] Gah! Here, girl! [Takes the button to Boxmore’s dog and she eats it] Oh, who’s a good doggy. Too easy. [Screaming hysterically after thinking about the plaza] Aah! [Chuckles nervously] No worries, Boxman. I have zer-o-o-o interest in that hideous plaza. I think I’ll just… strap myself down! J-u-u-ust in case!
Ernesto: [Opens the door] Hello, little ones.
[Darrell, Shannon, Raymond, and Jethro play a board game]
Darrell: [Waves] Hey, Ernesto! Wanna join us?
Ernesto: I’m just gonna take this down time to reelaaax.
Darrell: Hmm. Yeah. We haven’t gotten any order from Dad in a while.
Ernesto: Yeah, he mentioned something about not attacking the plaza for 24 hours, or he’ll get fired. [Reads a newspaper] Shame.
[Darrell, Shannon, and Raymond gasp]
Darrell: 24 hours?!
Darrell: Poor Dad! Maybe we should go check on him. Make sure he’s okay?
Shannon and Raymond: Yeah.
[Darrell, Shannon, and Raymond opens the door and enters Lord Boxman’s office]
Lord Boxman: [Having restrained himself] Yes, son?
Darrell: We noticed you seem… a little… dooownnn.
Lord Boxman: Oh, nonsense! Daddy’s great.
Darrell: Of course! Uh, but… we were thinking… why not have a family dinner?!
Lord Boxman: Well… sure. [Darrell, Shannon, and Raymond pick him up] Whoa!
Darrell, Shannon, and Raymond: Ooh, goodie! This is going to be the best!
[Lord Boxman, Ernesto, Darrell, Raymond, Shannon, Jethro, and Boxman’s dog are at the table for dinner]
Jethro: I am Jethro! I am Jethro!
Lord Boxman: [Angry muttering] ENOUGH! Why are you all acting so… strange?
Darrell: Well, we know you’re not allowed to attack the plaza for a whole day.
Darrell, Shannon, and Raymond: You must be truly hurting inside.
Lord Boxman: Stop! What are you trying to say here? That I’m obsessed?! That I have a… problem? [A though bubble of the plaza appears but he tries to remove it]
Shannon: Uh, well, yeah. I mean, isn’t attacking the plaza kinda, heh, the sole reason we exist?
Raymond: That is true.
Ernesto: Got a point there.
Darrell: Yeah, yeah. I mean, heh, come on.
Lord Boxman: Forgot you guys! I don’t have a problem! You know who has a problem? [Walks on the table] [Points to Raymond] You! With being nosy! I can too, go a day without attacking the plaza! And I don’t need your help to do it! [Points to them] I’ll show you all! I’ll show you! And I’ll show you! [His seat lowers] And I’m definitely gonna show you…
Jethro: I am Jethro!
Lord Boxman: [Gets off the chair] The nerve! Whose side are they on anyway? I built all of this on my own! No plaza required! I’ve just been a little distracted. That’s all. What have I been doing with my life? I forgot how much I missed just… building things… how much I missed my work. This… assembly line. Once full of my invention. How empty now. In dire need of my attention. These levers and pulleys. [Pulls a lever and pulley to drag himself up] All coated with dust. [Raymond, Shannon, and Darrell are at sight] My robotic children. All covered with rust.
Darrell: [Waves] Hi, Daddy! [Shannon pushes him] W-a-a-ah!
Lord Boxman: I’ve wasted my days. On those Lakewood twerps. [Swings] It’s time for Lord Boxman. To get back to work! [Gets off of the swing] [Opens doors to a room] [Takes off lab coat and types on keyboard] Back to blueprints and lasers. And building henchmen. [Welding] Back to forging and welding. And building again. How I see now how clearly. The things that I’ve missed. All I ever wanted. All I ever wanted. All I ever needed was this. Ha-ha-ha-ha! Yes! My machines! Ooh! My hard hat! Mm, so much time. Spent on silly fixations. Now I can focus. [Pulls a lever] On my true creati-o-o-on. What?! [Sees a diorama of the Bodega with Enid, K.O., and Rad] [Growls] That… is… it! [Wrecks the diorama] Gah! Perhaps I do have a problem. [Watch beeps] Oh! [Checks it and checks outside] It’s time to deal with this.
K.O.: [Brooms and yawns] Man. It’s sure been quiet, huh, guys?
[There is a bunkbed where Enid sleeps on top and Rad sleeps on the bottom one]
[A sound that someone enters the Bodega rings and Enid and Rad wake up]
K.O.: Oh! Finally, a custom— Aah!
[Boxman was the one who entered. Rad, Enid, and K.O. prepare]
Enid: What do you want, Boxman?
Lord Boxman: You can put those away.
Lord Boxman: [Holds out a piece of paper and puts on glasses] Ahemp. [Clears throat] Mi-mi-mi-mi-miiiii. I, uh, Lord Boxman— me, that is, hereby vow to-oo-oo-oo-oo… [High-pitched] …stop attacking the plaza. [Normal voice] Woow! That felt great to get that off of my che— [Turns around]
Rad: [Puts his hand on Lord Boxman’s shoulder] Wait a sec! Could you repeat that last part?
Lord Boxman: D’oh! My bosses said I can’t go a day without attacking you. But! Look at that! [Shows them a timer] One minute left!
Enid: Oh, come on. It’s ‘cause you’ve failed so many times, isn’t it?
Lord Boxman: Nooooo-uh! It’s just— it’s driving me crazy and my bosses crazy. So, there. Pbht!
K.O.: W-What happens if you did attack us?
Lord Boxman: I get fired and my business shuts down. Why?
Enid: [Sarcastically] Ohh. That’s so sad. One moment. [Huddles with Rad and K.O.] If Boxman attacks us, he’ll get fired and leave us alone!
[Rad and K.O. gasps]
Rad and Enid: Fight me, Buttman!
[K.O., Enid, and Rad try to annoy Lord Boxman]
Rad, Enid, and K.O.: Robots blow!
Enid: Boxes… are terrible! [Tosses a box and explodes]
K.O.: [Picks up a phone] What’s that? The president of the universe says all boxes must be replaced with…
Rad, Enid, and K.O.: Best friends?! Friendship! Friendship! Friendship! Wow! Yayyyyyyyy! [They laugh]
Lord Boxman: [Turns red but breathes in] I have better things to do now than waste my time on you piddling fools. [Chuckles] So long, clown babies! Boxman out. [Howls] [Exits the Bodega]
Enid: You know, maybe it’s for the best. I mean, I don’t wanna be the reason that Boxman loses his job.
Rad: You’re right, Enid. Even someone like him doesn’t deserve unemployment, just ‘cause he’s a weird, old man.
K.O.: We are all very thoughtful and kind, even to our enemies.
Rad: Bring it in for a big friend hug.
[Rad, Enid, and K.O. group hug. Enid laughs]
K.O.: Mmm! Yay!
Lord Boxman: [His watch beeps. Laughs evilly] You horrible, little brats! [Knocks down a candy machine] Ha-ha-ha-ha! You know what I hate? I-I hate your niceness! [Knocks jars of cheese puffs from the shelves] He-he. Ooh, and I hate your friendliness! [Knocks the register off of the counter] [Laughs] [Enid gags] I hate you kids! I hate this bodega! [kicks a rug] I hate Lakewood Plaza Turbo! Bwahaha! Yes, I do! [Runs out of the Bodega] Ha-ha-ha-hoo!
[Lord Boxman is back at Boxmore]
Cosma: [In video call] I have to say, Lord Boxman, I’m rather impressed with your restraint. You mad it the full 24 hours. Technically. The board is pleases with your progress. We expect production to be back on schedule shortly. Well done. [Ends video call]
Ernesto: Sounds like your meeting with Miss Cosma sure went well. You must be glad to be rid of that obsession of yours now, huh?
Lord Boxman: You know, Ernesto 1701, I learned something interesting about myself in the last 24 hours.
Ernesto: What’s that, sir?
Lord Boxman: I learned that I don’t need to attack the plaza. [Gets out a chest and opens it to reveal a button] [Evilly] I want to. [Pushes the button five times]
[Raymond, Darrell, Jethro, Shannon, and Ernesto are fighting Enid, K.O., and Rad at the Bodega]
Enid, K.O., and Rad: What the…? [Fights]
Lord Boxman: Never gets old. [Jethro is rolling on top of the Bodega]
