In Broca Beach, Mutt and Shockwave attempt to fight their way out of the funhouse overrun by Headman and his Headhunters. Cutter and Bullet-Proof leave Fred Jr. with his mother's body and an assault rifle. Fred Jr. takes the assault rifle and vows that he will not be kicked around again. Cutter and Bullet-Proof team up with a few locals, not knowing that they are actually Cobra troops, to assault the funhouse and save Mutt and Shockwave. Headman is able to escape through a secret hatch in the floor of the funhouse. Fred Jr. takes the gun to the nearest town and attempts to trade it for more drugs.
In the Gulf of Mexico, Flint orders Ozone to execute plan B. Flint and Clean-Sweep attempt to escape from Cesspool, but are unsuccessful. Cesspool dangles them over a pit of Plasmatox as he tells his origin. Once a successful but corrupt businessman, Cesspool's business was about to be shut down by the government. Cesspool tried to dumb his toxic evidence, but a valve broke, spraying his face and mutating him. Ozone arrives back at the Toxo-Lab with a lawyer who freezes Cesspool's assets and threatens legal action. Cesspool lets the Joes go free.
