He's stuck in Down Town, waiting, until [[WhoopiGoldberg Death]] gives him a ticket out. However, he finds out the plug's about to be pulled on him, so the pair sets out to steal an Exit Pass. However, once they've snatched it from Death, Monkeybone reveals himself as [[RageAgainstTheAuthor fed up with being just a figment]], and, with help of Hypnos, God of Sleep, uses the pass to become Stu in the real world. Hypnos plans to use Stu's body to distribute nightmare juice- a chemical that causes nightmares in people and animals. HilarityEnsues as Death sends Stu to stop Monkeybone, in the body of a deceased Olympian.
