Randy and Howard are desperate to purchase the latest McFist product, the indestructible McSatchlé, which Randy says will cause people to "worship their cheese." Randy plans to hold on to it throughout the week, as most of the money will be from him, but Howard complains he would not be able to show it off it on weekends. Being confused about the price, they order the McSatchlé, only to be informed in short order that they don't have enough money for one. Howard is bummed until Randy, while passing the McFist-O-Plex cinema, suggests they should both get jobs — not as movie stars, as Howard unrealistically suggests, but as flunkies at the cinema. They are hired and loaded up with work, until the NinjaNomicon glows, summoning Randy away (to his relief), but irritating Howard.
The Nomicon informs Randy that
|“||The Gain is Rarely Worth the Loss||”|
but Randy is uncomprehending as usual.
Howard, by conning someone else into doing his work for him, accidentally causes McFist to take a liking to him, since Howard reminds him of his own younger self. He promotes Howard to manager and fires his old one. Now the tables are turned, Howard becomes more and more overbearing, and forces Randy to do all the worst jobs at the McFist-O-Plex by himself; Howard further says that since he will now contribute most of the money for the McSatchlé, Randy will be allowed to carry it only on Sundays...well, every other Sunday.
Viceroy unleashes robots which riot, spreading anarchy. Randy wants to ninja out, but Howard won't authorize it until Randy's shift is over. Randy thereupon quits, and delivers the customary drubbing to McFist's bots. Howard meanwhile stalks off in a huff, but happens to overhear McFist and Viceroy plotting. Viceroy springs a surprise on the Ninja: the defeated robots reassemble into one and cover themselves in indestructible McSatchlés, turning into a giant, also indestructible, McSatchlé-armored robot. The Ninja fights the McSatchlé robot, but can't even scratch it.
Howard, though still angry, decides to aid his best friend. He reveals to the Ninja that the McSatchlé is not indestructible after all, because, much to Viceroy's displeasure, McFist had insisted on adding cheaper, easily destructible zippers to the device. The Ninja targets the bot's zippers, and the creature quickly falls apart. Howard is fired by McFist for talking to the Ninja. Randy realizes the advice of the Nomicon, which seemed useless in regard to the robot-fight, actually referred to his nearly lost friendship with Howard.
