PlotEdit

Upon returning to the Lightning Fast VCR Repair Shop, Mike and Jay are accosted by their boss, Tim.

Tim is in good spirits, explaining that he has safeguarded his company against the inevitable decline of the VCR industry by striking a deal. To their dismay, the repairmen learn their boss intends to turn them over to George Lucas for a significant reward.

Lucas, pleased with the execution of his plan, explains that he has been arranging the murder of VCR repairmen and destroying their shops in order to prevent the original versions of the Star Wars trilogy from ever being seen again. He reveals that Shelia had been hired to seduce the elderly and upgrade their antiquated entertainment systems.

Lucas reneges on his agreement with Tim, who hastily escapes and leaves the repairmen to their fate.

As Lucas prepares to destroy the last copies of the original Star Wars in existence, Mike gives an impassioned speech, declaring that those films have a sphere of influence that extends far beyond Lucas's reach. This revelation perturbs Lucas and instigates a violent meltdown.
