On the most important "restaurant visit", some fool named Racemon tries to stop the food delivery truck from reaching the restaurant. Dokamon Schwarzenegger goes "aight lemme step outside for a minute" and it only takes 2 min tops in the episode for his fist to find this fool's head. Dokamon Bueller makes it back in time and MariPero writes her most successful review. Then her App goes out of service, and she has to kiss Dokamon goodbye before fading away. She comes back like the next day, saying she's famous and goes "oh? did you fall in love with me? You can't okay? kisses don't mean nothing" and leaves forever. Dokadawgmon is so down, his big bro Gatchmon gotta tell him that's what being a man is. My lil bro ain't even the love Appmon, he's the Action Appmon. She ain't have to do my dawg like that.
    • The worst part is... Dokabromon's main squeeze Eri-chan found out about the whole thing, kiss included, and now she gotta give him the cold shoulder for it at the end.
