Do not fill this in!==Plot== The episode begins with [[The Monarch]], [[Dr. Girlfriend|Dr. Mrs. The Monarch]], and the Moppets ([[Kevin]] & [[Tim-Tom]]) raiding the base of their new arch-enemy, [[Douglas Ong|Dr. Dugong]], who appropriately resembles a manatee, a very similar Sirenian mammal. His base bears strong resemblance to Stromberg's Atlantis from ''The Spy Who Loved Me''. He is actually a very harmless "protagonist" for the Monarch. Encouraged to view the man as a stand-in for [[Dr. Venture|Doctor Venture]], the Monarch kills him in a murderous frenzy. This leaves the nefarious couple once again without a nemesis. Meanwhile, back at the Venture Compound, [[Hank Venture|Hank]], [[Dean Venture|Dean]], and [[Dermott Fictel|Dermott]] have the compound to themselves as Dr. Venture and [[Brock Samson|Brock]] have gone to a [[Science Now conference]]. There Dr. Venture plans to exhibit his dynamic new invention: The [[Boom-Broom]]. [[Dermott Fictel|Dermott]] and Hank plan to form a band, with Dermott on vocals, Hank on bass and [[H.E.L.P.eR.]] playing percussion through his internal system. Dean meanwhile is publishing the next version of his family newspaper, which apparently only The Monarch and [[Henchman 21]] actually read. Back at the cocoon, Dr. Girlfriend berates her husband over their declining standing in the [[Guild of Calamitous Intent]] due to The Monarch killing off his replacement "arches." Later, wandering the halls of his cocoon with 21 and [[Henchman 24|24]], The Monarch laments the fact that he no longer enjoys super-villainy since Dr. Venture gave him the challenge he wanted. The trio decide to relive old times by doing an impromptu (and unauthorized) raid on his compound. Meanwhile, H.E.L.P.e.R.'s percussion music continues endlessly, much to the chagrin of the Venture boys. Unable to turn it off, they lock the hapless robot in the closet, but even that does not muffle the noise sufficiently. Hank and Dermott camp out on the compound lawn, while Dean tries to ignore the music. Finally, unable to take it any more, Dean orders H.E.L.P.e.R. to shut down all accessible sound systems, which has the side effect of disabling the audible components of the Venture Compound's security system, just as the marauding Monarch and his [[Monarch henchmen|henchmen]] arrive. The compound's security lasers (silently) bombard the butterfly-themed baddies, blowing up the septic tank, nearly killing the Monarch, 21, and 24, and alerting the boys, who both think its aliens attacking again. Hank and Dean try to call Dr. Venture and Brock on their two-ways, but both of them do not answer (due to the audio systems being disabled). 21 and 24 take cover in the hangar, while The Monarch slips inside the compound. Hank and Dermott are investigating the damage when the two henchmen spot them and give chase. 24 easily captures Dermott, whose presence is questioned by 24, having not seen Dermott before in the compound. Dermott first reveals that he is Hank's friend, but 24 doesn't believe him. Dermott follows up by claiming that he is Brock's long-lost son, but 24 states that's impossible because he caught Dermott so easily. Dermott explains he couldn't run because of the lighter he stuck up his ass earlier to deter 'aliens', to which 24 then believes that Dermott is Hank's friend. Inside, The Monarch finds Dr. Venture's lab. He performs miscellaneous acts of sabotage and mischief, culminating in finding Venture's guard robot G.U.A.R.D.O. and having sex with it. Dean walks in on this, and The Monarch claims that he is trying to infect the robot with [[wikipedia:Chlamydia_infection|chlamydia]] and then uses [[wikipedia:reverse_psychology|reverse psychology]] to convince Dean that reporting this perverted act to his father would be playing into the Monarch's diabolical scheme. The supervillain then gathers his clothes and sheepishly exits. At this time, Dr. Girlfriend realizes that The Monarch has broken his word and is probably out raiding the compound. When Tim-Tom and Kevin ask about his hatred for Dr. Venture, Dr. Girlfriend only states that Dr. Venture did "nothing worth destroying a career--a marriage" before she calls the henchmen to fly the Cocoon to the Compound to retrieve her husband. Meanwhile, 24 has convinced Dermott to also not tell Dr. Venture and Brock of their raid, by bribing him with Monarch weaponry. 21 calls a truce with Hank (mostly because he can't catch up to him) and tells Hank that he is just going through the motions of killing him because he thinks Hank is immortal. 21, after all, saw him die twice and then inexplicably turn up again. He then shoots Hank with a dart from his gun, which turns out to just be a tranquilizer. Upon realizing this later, 21 complains (again) that he is not informed of many matters. At this time, the Cocoon arrives and collects all of the villains. As it leaves, Hank wakes up from his tranquilizer attack, and subsequently buys into the theory that he is an immortal, like ''[[wikipedia:Connor_MacLeod|Highlander]]''. For the epilogue, the Cocoon is shown over the ocean, two weeks later (and after the events of the next episode), approaching The Monarch's latest nemesis, whom Dr. Girlfriend chose as a close alternate to Dr. Venture—his brother, [[Jonas Venture Junior]]. The Cocoon rapidly approaches [[Spider-Skull Island]] for their first encounter.
