"Beating About The Bush"
Stanley the watermelon gets his family in trouble with the veggie mafia.
The episode begins with Finn and Jake spying on Stanley in his house with the same family members seen in 'The Jiggler'. They get bored and leave, but as they leave Jake unknowingly steps in some nuclear waste from the Great Mushroom War and walks over the nearby vegetable field. The mutating vegetables begin to glow and grow eyes. A few sink below the ground into a rabbit burrow and begin to discuss life. Before long they all have an evil instinct to go out and mess with people. Just at that moment a rabbit enters the burrow only for the 'veggie mafia' to run.
After a short intermission saying '3 hours later', the veggie mafia are walking across the woods with gold chains. All the forest inhabitants hide as they progress through the forest. As they come across the Stanley Residence, Big C says, 'are you ready gang?'.
The veggie mafia burst into the house commanding the watermelon to give them money, but they are given no reply. Instead Stanley rolls out the door and towards the Goblin Kingdom. The vegetables run after him.
As the mafia approaches the kingdom, they are denied by the guards until Crunch reveals a flamethrower. The mafia burn down the kingdom in pursuit of the watermelon. Just as Stanley is cornered, his mum (pineapple), dad (banana), identical twin brother, crazy aunt (squash) and uncle (sausages) ambush the gang, although lacking limbs, voice and sight. As the fight goes on Finn and Jake come running towards the action, but when every other member of the mafia reveals flamethrowers, everyone turns still and silent. Just as Johnny says,"any last words?" The rabbit comes falls out this sky on top of him. Just as Trevor says, 'YOU, we ain't scared of you no more", the rabbit sheds its skin to reveal that it is actually a robot rabbit. The rabbit roasts Johnny, Trevor and Crunch and turns to Big C and eats him. The rabbit then turns to Finn and Jake and says,'any more?'. Finn says that he doesn't know, only for the rabbit to begin laughing hysterically and blow up. The episode ends with Finn saying, 'I don't get it' in autotune.
