Before Cake at Stake
The episode starts with Firey and Leafy playing tic-tac-toe and Leafy just won her 73rd game in a row. Firey wants another rematch, in which Leafy eventually agrees. Rocky starts barfing which makes Leafy believes he's sick. She starts running to him, and Firey called Leafy but then she gets caught in a net and thrown into space. Firey starts to worry but then is caught in a net and shot into space too. So did Rocky, along with Spongy, Ice Cube, and David. Bubble starts to wonder what's happening as Ice Cube screams. As they get into space, they see Announcer floating. Rocky barfs. Bubble comments on how she's weightless while Ice Cube is amazed. Firey then calls Speaker a radio and asks him why are they in space. The Speaker says it was because of budget cuts, right before the intro plays.
After the intro, Bubble notices the Big Dipper. She takes a star from it and ask to play catch with Ice Cube, Ice Cube then played catch with Bubble. Leafy starts to freak out about how the star of Big Dipper is gone and how Bubble and Ice Cube are playing catch. Speaker announces that even though they are in space, they still need to do Cake at Stake.
First off, there is a new Cake at Stake music, much longer than the previous one. Speaker confesses that he learned that a normal cake would explode in space so he got an ice-cream cake instead. Leafy asks how it would make a difference but Speaker tells her to "hush". Bubble, Rocky, Firey and Leafy get the physics-defying ice cream cake. Ice Cube is the first one safe with 72 votes. This time, there is no drum roll when showing who got the most votes because Speaker found it too annoying, prompting Firey to make his own. The result shown that Spongy gets 142 votes and David is eliminated with 331 votes. This episode marks the first time the Double Teleportation Device was used. The intro starts to play again but Speaker stops it after he notices they already played it. Leafy says that they might as well play it, "just for good measure." And the intro played again.
Leafy and Firey start to talk about how weird David was. Firey says that he looked a lot like human as he does not know what that means. Leafy confesses that they should be friends. Firey thinks it's an alliance but Leafy quickly interrupts saying "just friends" possibly because she doesn't want other people to think that she and Firey are dating. Speaker wants to be friends too but Firey rejected him.
Speaker gives everyone immunity but then says they can lose it. Ice cube get hit by an asteroid while Rocky is abducted by a UFO (referencing the finale) but then Rocky barfs, destroying the UFO. So Icy and Rocky loses immunity.
The twentieth contest is to get into a spaceship. Spongy is the first to do so. Bubble and Leafy get into theirs while Firey can't hold the spaceship. Speaker says if he gets hit, he will lose immunity. Firey is about to get hit with the asteroid but then he can able to gets into his spaceship quickly. Leafy says they should get Spongy, but he dodges all the laser shots as Leafy did in Lofty. Firey tries to go super-speed mode but Leafy says he shouldn't as Spongy shoots her. Bubble starts to be sucked into a Black Hole (by maristanaweb) as well as Spongy. Spongy falls into it first. The others begin to fall into the Black Hole, Bubble scream but then the black hole disappears as it's "sold because of budget cuts". Firey's spaceship is also deleted due to budget cuts while Bubble still has hers as she shoots Firey. Bubble wins immunity, She is happy to say "YOYLECAKE!". The contestants are slowly recovered with a Master Recovery Center. Bubble gives the 2nd immunity to Leafy again. She is amazed of how she was chosen twice but then says she has to do it a lot more times. Speaker announces that 1 of an eliminated contestants will join the game, and that all the eliminated characters will decide who goes home instead of the viewers.
