Several "Hollywood" shots flip onto the screen until the Winnie pulls in front of the LA MTV building. The kids walk into a boardroom and sit down. The "Mission Board" consists of past Road Rulers Vince (from RR 4), Chadwick (from RR 6), and Christina (also from RR 6). As they introduce themselves, we see flashbacks of the three actually completing real missions that might have had some danger and/or entertainment. Flashback bragging. I love it. Vince tells the kids that they have to watch this video that they prepared for them. They all turn from their product-placed bottles of Surge and watch the television. It's a recap of all of their failed missions. There's the failed monster-truck rally. Six points lost. Six points lost on the fugitive mission. The kids are laughing along as they watch proof that they suck. Two points lost on "Traditional Healers." "The Parent Trap" cost them another two points. I get down on my knees and thank Saint Clare, the patron saint of television, that I never had to recap any of these episodes. In total, the kids lost sixteen points, or $16,000 through all of their failed missions. Someone isn't laughing anymore! Vince leans in to tell them why they are all there today: "In the history of this show, no one has ever not received their handsome reward." However, they have a surplus of awkwardly structured sentences. And did Vince get bonus money for saying "handsome reward?" Why is it always the "handsome reward?" Is this a Noel Coward play or something? Crikey. Vince says they're going to get one last chance. "Now here's the rub," Christina interrupts. "You guys have to come up with your own final mission." The Graphic of Stupid seconds that very statement. Aye, there's the rub, indeed. Something is definitely rotten in Denmark, my friends. And looking at floaty James, I'm pretty sure it's one of his toenails. Vince says they have to approve the mission before they just go out and do it. In case we were having sex instead of watching the show, Msaada floats in and tells us, yet again, that the purpose of this mission is to regain some of their dignity. And if you're having sex while watching Road Rules, may I suggest you join in on whatever mission they come up with. Chadwick hands out pieces of paper called "Rules." He says they can't do anything they've already done before. "You can't go skydiving, or any of that s...tuff." Holly looks at Chadwick like Drew Barrymore facing off with George C. Scott. They are given a (close-up on the product placement) Cobalt Card with a $5,000 limit. This is to be the budget for whatever they come up with. Vince tells them to go out with a bang and then lifts himself from the seat and repeats himself while leaning to the side. Christina tells them that they'll have to figure out what "really scares the crap out of [them]." Holly looks nauseous. James looks horny.
As they all pile back into the Winnie, ideas are being shot down left and right. Oh, I just figured it out! I just figured out who Theo looks like! He looks like Bruce McCulloch's "Gavin" from Kids in the Hall. Like at any minute he's going to ask if he can paint a chair. Kathryn suggests repelling down an elevator shaft. James goes off on some crazy description of a mission where they'd have to "get from one place, let's say from point A to point B, and the distance between those two is like, two hundred miles." Uh, isn't that called a "race"? And that's scary how? They all remind James that his idea is not scary and doesn't follow the rules. James throws his hands in the air and says, "Well, anyway, dude, I mean, like, that's just my idea and I'm gonna try and work on it. I'm gonna try and sass it up." As we hear Kathryn tell him that his idea is stupid, James floats over that Kathryn is never going to see his side of things and is going to boss them all around again. Whatever, dude. Go work on your sassy race. "Rock climbing something really weird," Kathryn says, like this is divine intervention. She decides the weirdest thing to climb would be Space Mountain. I wish James would pipe in with "Because Space Mountain is terrifying when you're six," but he doesn't. Theo turns around from the passenger seat, shoves a pillow into his crotch, and says, "Okay, I do not know what would like, be probably, like, one of the most courageous things that all of us could do." "Not talk shit for forty-eight hours?" Msaada sasses. "No, Msaada," Theo chastises. "You wouldn't be able to do that." She says that actually she would, but it's not a very good comeback. Someone makes them shut up. Kathryn floats over that they have to "get it done." Laterrian says he thought they'd be able to "still be a team." I wonder what led him to this conclusion. Several shots of the kids just staring at each other. At one point Holly is either sneezing or crying. I don't care which one, really. Msaada says it's not as easy as she thought it would be. Fade out on several shots of the bewildered cast, wondering how one "thinks" of "a mission." Gah, y'all, it's so hard to think of things that scare you when you're not used to thinking and stuff.
