[The episode begins with Five playing Flunky Quest]
Five: Get it together. Get it together, Five. Boom! Nice!
Abuela: Steak and egg!
Papi: Steak and egg!
Abuela: [Grunts] Hey, bed head! Quit button mashing up there and grab some breakfast, yeah?
Five: Okay. Coming Abuela!
Abuela: Kimchi and avocado!
Papi: Kimchi and avocado!
Abuela: Extra peppers!
Papi: Extra peppers!
Five: [Laughs] Boom!
Papi: [Laughs] Hey! There he is!
Papi: Saved you chorizo.
Five: Gracias, Papi.
Abuela: Have a good day at work! And don't forget to call your dad later, okay?
Five: I know, I know. Bye. Love you guys!
[Screen cuts to some kids playing Flunky Quest]
Kid 1: Five
Kid 2: Yo. Five!
Kid 3: Hey, Five!
Kid 1: Did you hear?
Kid 4: You gotta come by the game store.
Five: Woah, woah, one at a time, guys...
Geri: Hector "High Five" Nieves! How you been doing, kiddo?
Five: Oh, uh, hey, Geri.
Geri: Here you go, savages. Meet you back at the store.
Kid 3: Gracias.
Geri: Ooh. You of all people are going to flip when you see what's being delivered to my showroom this morning.
Five: Woah! A vintage Ping arcade machine? I've never played one of these before.
Geri: Well, swing on by the store today and check it out.
Five: Wow, really?
Geri: Hey, you're one of my best customers. Haven't seen you for a while, though. Last time was probably just before your father--
Five: Yeah, um, actually, I don't think I can come by, um... You know, I have this new tech support job at the Hinobi store.
Geri: I heard. Well, if not today, then maybe--
Five: Maybe later. Yeah, totally. Um, it's good seeing you, Geri. Adios!
Geri: Chow main, chavallo.
[Meanwhile, at Geri's Game Kingdom]
Kid: Need some help in there?
Geri: Nah, babies, you all play and mind the counter.
Geri: [Using a tool to inbox the Ping machine] Okay, gorgeous, let's take a look at you.
[The package opens up]
Geri: Pfft, free shipping. [Chuckles] Well, beauty's only skin deep.
[Geri turns on the machine]
[The machine shows the text Hinobi Corp, then shows the game name and a cube above]
Geri: [Laughing] Oh, my... What? It lives!
[Zooms into the internal machinery, showing damage and a glitch breaking out of a rod]
[A green light originates from the machine, makes the screen white, transitions to the Hinobi store, then cut to a scene where Five is reading a book named Advances Bee++ Coding]
Miko: [Groaning, getting closer to five] Man. [Eats something] Slow days are so slow.
Five: Yeah. [Chuckles]
Miko: What game are you guys playing?
Zahra: Board game based on a video game, based on a movie, based on a cartoon.
Haneesh: All right [Shaking dice] random number generator, go! Ugh, landed in tar pits again.
Mitch: Boosh! [Knocks a blue pawn off]
BITT: Alert! Alert! I am receiving an urgent request for High Five on the customer service line.
Five: Me? Who'd wanna call me on a customer--
Geri: [In a call] Five?
Zahra: Isn't that the lady who runs the vintage game store on Zeddemore?
Mitch: I hate those old-school games. They're so beeping-booping boring. Ugh.
Five: Why are you calling me at work?
Geri: That Ping machine I ordered? Must've gotten pretty banged up in shipping, because it's got a lot more quirk than I bargained for. Now you say you work with tech support--
Five: I do, but I specialize in a very special kind of tech support, Geri. Have you tried just turning your machine off and on again?
Geri: This thing doesn't wanna be turned off.
[A green flash comes at Geri]
Geri: Whoa! Easy, big fella.
Miko: Uh... I'd say that calls for our special kind of tech support. Let's go, partner.
[They get into a van, portals to the game store]
Miko: OM-MORPG, this place is amazing!
Five: Uh, yeah. I came here a lot as a kid.
Miko: Your friend owns this place? Why haven't you told me about it?
Five: [Sighs] Because I kinda promised I wasn't going to come back here for a while.
Miko: Promised who?
Five: Look, this needs to be a work visit. We get in there, we get the glitch, and we get out of there. Okay?
Miko: [Nervously] Okay.
[Shop bell rings]
Kid 1: Hey, it's Five.
Kid 2: Wanna play some co-op?
Five: [Chuckles] Whoa. You have minions? Consoles, coin-ops, controllers, oh, my! It's a gamer paradise.
Five: Okay, can we just keep ourselves low-pro?
Miko: Low-pro. Totes. Scanning for... coolness!
Miko: Ping, Beebuzz, Unicorp...
