Storyline

Mike and the bots decide to try redecorating the SOL with new wallpaper, but it doesn't seem to match up. Meanwhile, the Mads declare the SOL is part of the Counter Culture and sends the movie as what they call Proposition: Deep 13, a political movement Mike is elected to repel until they lose hope at the news that it's another movie by Coleman Francis. During the movie, their quiet afternoon is interrupted by a trailer of space fairing partying college co-eds and Crow's obsession with his 11:30 lunch time begins to annoy Mike. After enduring so much of the movie, Crow establishes FAPS - the Film Anti-Preservation Society and urges every person everywhere to destroy bad movies wherever they might find it, a movement Mike is against for morale issues despite Crow's indifference. Upon the movie's completion, Mike and the bots emerge from the theater victorious having tamed the movie and Dr. Forrester copes with it by slapping Frank all through to the end of the credits.

Trivia

The host segment in which Crow keeps asking if it's 11:30 yet is an inside joke, aimed at Frank Conniff. He often skipped breakfast, so he would frequently interrupt writing sessions by asking if it was time to break for lunch. See more »
