Recap: Regular Show S 03 Ep 12 Weekend At Bensons

Weekend at Benson's

In this homage to Weekend at Bernie's, Mordecai and Rigby's latest goof-up on the job knocks Benson unconscious and the duo have to make it look like he's alive (just really tired and not in the mood to talk) before he can wake up.

Weekend at Benson's provides examples of...

  • Delayed Reaction: When Benson wakes up, the effects of the spice-off doesn't hit him until he's in the bathroom yelling at Mordecai and Rigby.
  • Epic Fail: Mordecai screws up big even by his and Rigby's normal standards. He can't even replace a light bulb properly.
  • Gargle Blaster: The idea behind the Mississippi Queen. Its actual effects have a bit of a delay.
  • I Can't Believe It's Not Heroin: The spicy eating challenge is played like a drinking contest.
  • Mushroom Samba
  • Of Corpse He's Alive: He's just deeply unconscious.
  • Throw the Dog a Bone: After all the shenanigans that Mordecai and Rigby have put the unconscious Benson through, it ends up with him getting Audrey's number.
  • Whole Plot Reference: to Weekend at Bernie's.
