When they decide to put their freezes back in the machine, Chum Chum already slerps them down. They start to go into a panic. Then Oz walks in and they ask him if they can borrow a dollar. He says that he will make his purchase and give them the change, but he spends all his money without caring. Then Lenny starts to get irritated with waiting for them to pay. Then Boog walks in and starts to play Chimp Chomp. They see his quarters and plan on grabbing some. While Chum Chum is against it, Fanboy points out that Boog only has all those quarters because he stole them from Fanboy and Chum Chum. They start to sneak up behind him, but he sees them, spins around, grabs them, and flings them across the store.Then Fanboy has an idea. He tells Chum Chum to go to the Fanlair, but Chum Chum leaves without letting him finish the sentence. Then Fanboy is all alone and Lenny is getting fed up with waiting. Then Fanboy tries to leave, but is stopped by Dollar-nator sent to pay for the drinks. Then Fanboy asks how he was built and finds out that he is part pinata and enjoys the candy.
