Go To

Written and storyboarded by Sean Szeles and Kat Morris.

Mordecai volunteers to drive Margaret to the airport, and gets hounded by by a gang of The Warriors-style street thugs who hate cell phones.


  • Berserk Button: The Wickets really don't like cell phones.
  • Big Damn Kiss: Between Mordecai and Margaret.
  • Bittersweet Ending: Mordecai cheers after Margaret kissed him goodbye, but his victory is interrupted by the sight of Benson's car being towed.

  • Call-Back: Margaret makes sure that Mordecai offering her a ride isn't some kind of dare or won't devolve into craziness before taking him up on it.
  • Don't Answer That: When Margaret is suspicious of Mordecai for doing her this favor because of a bet like last time. Mordecai asks when has he ever done that. He then immediately tells Rigby, who’s behind him about to answer, to be quiet without looking at him.
  • First Kiss: For Mordecai.
  • Karmic Death: The Wickets meet their end by crashing into a Billboard that advertises cell phones.
  • Shout-Out: The Wickets are a combination of something resembling a gang from The Warriors combined with the droogs from A Clockwork Orange.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Margaret is none too happy that something insane happened, even if it wasn't Mordecai's fault. She forgives him after he still gets her to the airport on time.

How well does it match the trope?
