Mugman accidentally ends up on a game show.
Teanna sits down to watch a gameshow called "One Strike!." The host, Phil, introduces Onion O'Riely to the show and asks him "what do they call pistachios in Iran?" to which Onion replies "Uhhh... green nuts?" It turns out the correct answer is gibberish - "machnandmchnlananen..." Onion is removed from the show, and Phil introduces their next contestant: Frank Gump from Missouri. A confused Mugman steps out of the contestants' door. Phil asks an off-screen Murray if it's okay for Mugman to play the game, and he goes with it. The first question is "how many claws does the Southern cassowary have?" to which Mugman asks "On both feet, or just one?" Phil asks Murray, who says both feet, so of course Mugman gets the correct answer. The second question is "Where did the SS Andrea Doria sink?," which Mugman also gets correct. The third and final question is "What is the orbital speed of the planet Mercury?," which prompts Mugman to use his "Clueless Call" to call Pementa. It turns out that Pementa has been in the audience, and talks to Mugman for the entire duration of the call, while, he attempts to ask her for the answer. With his Clueless Call used-up, he is pressed for time and randomly blurts out "Forty-eight thousand miles and hour!," which happens to be the correct answer. He wins a new car, but he can't drive (possibly due to his age and/or disability) and so he gives the car to Free Wizard. He asks Free Wizard not to forget to pick up him and Pementa up for the theater (presumably for a date). Free Wizard says "Yeah, yeah, whatever" and drives off, ending the episode.
