Mr. Plinkett propositions a woman walking home alone, but his demeanor distresses her. Plinkett becomes flustered when she screams, making matters worse. Star Trek Guy quickly beams down to give Plinkett tips on asking a woman out, but Plinkett is perplexed by Star Trek Guy's advice. He reminisces about 1968, a simpler time for asking a woman out. In present day, the woman kicks Plinkett in the groin and escapes.
