The episode starts with a short intro sequence for "The Best of Elmore Stream," featuring clips from previous episodes. After the intro, the episode cuts to the first video, which features Mike interviewing Felicity about Elmore's new imported speed bumps. No sooner does she finish speaking when Marvin drives over one of them, sending him forward at a tremendous speed, which makes him crash into a stack of piled-up cars.
The next clip shows Gumball with the Evil Turtle inside his shirt so her head can be seen. Gumball speaks in a high-pitched voice while trying to grab a box of Daisy Flakes for the Evil Turtle tp eat. Rather than eat the Daisy Flakes, she bites Gumball's wrist, and the clip abruptly ends while Gumball screams in pain.
The episode cuts to Banana Joe's room, where he attempts to jump out of his peel and land back inside right. The first time he lands upside down, the second time he falls through his peel and splatters on the floor, and the third time he gets stuck on his ceiling while Banana Bob walks by and collects Joe's empty peel.
The next clip shows Tony slowly walking through a store. Behind him is the tuba guy, who is making tuba sounds as he walks. Tony turns around and thinks the tuba guy is making fun of him, and shoves him. After Tony leaves, the drum kit guy walks by and sneezes.
The clip that follows shows Principal Brown walking past a store that has a display featuring a rug that resembles him. After seeing it, he panics, thinking that it is his grandma.
The next clips features Gumball and Darwin doing several made-up challenges. They try a silly face challenge, a belching challenge, and finally a high-pitched voice challenge. During their high-pitched voice challenge, Darwin's voice causes the camera lens to crack. Gumball then suggests it was not the camera that broke, and the pieces of the screen fall, leaving nothing but TV static left.
The episode then cuts to Tobias doing an unboxing video on his new phone. When he opens the box, he finds that the object inside is not his phone. Tobias cuts the video off and then turns it back on. He reveals that his phone was sent to the wrong address, and shows a video on Elmore Stream-It called "TRANSPLANT FAIL." In it, Ms. Markham hands the old doctor the box with Tobias' phone in it during an operation, and a flatline can be heard.
The following clips involve Gumball and Darwin performing a long greeting to each other, Richard showing off his new meal called Buttersmear, and Coach doing an exercise video (which actually is just the video being poorly manipulated to make it look like Coach is exercising).
The next clip then gives viewers several warnings to prepare them for the first official airing of "The Grieving," such as how most people who have seen it have never been seen again, or that the show is not responsible for any ill effects from watching. After the buildup, it turns out to just be the Saxophone Chihuahua.
The episode then shows a blue sausage dog approaching a fire hydrant to use the bathroom. The fire hydrant repeatedly tells the dog not to do so before finally spraying water on the dog. Suddenly, an out-of-control car runs into the fire hydrant and knocks him off the screen.
The final clip shows the Wattersons and various citizens across Elmore all taking part in a song about being proud of being weird. Then the episode appears to end, until the Saxophone Chihuahua makes another appearance, ending the episode.
This episode breaks the fourth wall with the onscreen warning before the Saxophone Chihuahua video prank.
The fourth wall is broken again when Darwin damages the screen with his high-pitched voice. He thinks that he broke the camera, but Gumball corrects him saying "I don't think it was the camera." The TV screen then shatters.
It is broken yet again when "The Grieving," a popular Gumball creepypasta written by Globaluna32, is referenced.
During the Principal Brown video, the security camera reveals that the incident took place on December 18th, 2015.
In Latin America, this episode was transmitted during the sixth season's run.
This was the last episode to be produced in season 4.
The song "Weird Like You And Me" is the longest song in the series.
Gargaroth makes a cameo in this episode. He would later play an important role (and die) in "The Scam," implying that this episode takes place before the events of that one.
The music from "Weird Like You And Me" is reused from "The Love."
This is the second time Gumball and Darwin have fused together, the first being in "The Parasite." However, in "The Wand," Gumball and Darwin switched their faces and butts.
The first clip, which features Marvin driving on the speed bump and going faster, is a reference to Mario Kart, in which the players go faster when they drive on the speed bump.
The scene where Tony is being followed by a tuba person is a parody of a cutaway scene in the Family Guy episode "No Chris Left Behind," where Stewie's job is to play the tuba while following obese people.
Tobias' video is a reference to popular "Unboxing" videos on YouTube.
[The episode starts off with clips from past episodes on Elmore Stream. First it shows Tobias' "X-treme Pranking" video. It then shows a clip from "The Money" when Richard drove through the convience store. Gumball's "HIP FLOP" video is shown next. Lastly, Banana Joe's "Bodyjam" video. A title then comes up saying "The Best of Elmore Stream". Scene changes to Mike interviewing Felicity while they are on the news]
Mike: [To Felicity] Ma'am, do you find the new speed bumps in your neighborhood a nuisance?
Felicity: Yes. I believe these imported speed bumps do not fit the regulation standards.
[Marvin is behind them on his mobility scooter, and drives on one of the speed bumps. The bump speeds up Marvin's scooter in a racing game-esque way]
[Marvin crashes into a pile of cars]
[Scene changes to Gumball and the evil turtle. The turtle is on top of Gumball's head, trying to appear as one person, and Gumball is trying to pour cereal in the bowl while the evil turtle keeps hissing.]
Gumball: [High-pitched] Ooh-hoo-hoo! I'm very hungry today. Let's make something to eat.
[Gumball knocks stuff over on the table, trying to pour cereal in a bowl]
Gumball: Mmm. This looks deli-
[The evil turtle bites Gumball's hand, causing him to scream]
Backflip Fail and More
[Next clip shows Banana Joe trying to record himself doing a back flip]
Banana Joe: It's back flip time! One...two...three...
[Banana Joe back flips out of his banana peel and falls back in upside down. The video cuts and Banana Joe tries again]
Banana Joe: It's back flip time! Again. One...two...three...
[Banana Joe back flips again, and goes through his peel onto the floor. The video cuts again and he tries one more time]
Banana Joe: Okay. It's back flip time. This time it'll work. One, two, three!
[Banana Joe flies up to the ceiling and gets stuck. Banana Bob comes in his room and puts his banana peel in a basket. Banana Joe falls on the floor]
Banana Joe: Ta-da...
[Next scene is Tony walking while a Tuba guy is following him, making noises]
Tony: Hey! [Pushes Tuba guy]
[Drum Kit guy walks by and sneezes]
[The next scene shows Principal Brown walking at the mall, and he looks at a carpet through the glass of a store display, the carpet material looking like his own fur. He stops and gasps]
Nigel Brown: No. No! Oh, no! Grandmaaa!
Gumball and Darwin's Challenges
[Gumball and Darwin record themselves on the bus]
Gumball & Darwin: Silly face challenge!
Darwin: Nose baby!
[Gumball changes his face]
Gumball: Lips monster!
[Darwin changes his face]
Darwin: Sassy gangster!
[Gumball changes his face and smooches]
Gumball: Space Grinch!
[Darwin changes his face]
Darwin: Chin creature!
[Sussie comes up behind them]
[Gumball and Darwin clap]
Gumball: And... I think we have a winner.
[Scene changes Gumball and Darwin on the couch]
Gumball & Darwin: Belching challenge!
[Gumball and Darwin both burp for a few seconds, Darwin gets tired while Gumball keeps going. Darwin looks at him and Gumball's legs begin to go through his mouth. Darwin moves the camera to show Gumball's legs are not where they should be anymore.]
[Gumball stops while Darwin keeps going so high he breaks the screen]
Darwin: Oh, no! I broke the camera!
Gumball: I don't think it was the camera.
[The glass shatters and drops away to show the Void]
[Scene changes to Tobias in his room]
Tobias: Hi, guys, this is my new phone-unboxing video. My old phone told me it needed an update, so I followed its advice, threw it away, and my dad bought me a new one. Here comes the moment of truth...[Mimics a fanfare and opens the box. The box lets out smoke] Whoo! Dry ice! That's new! They really know how to make it spectacular. And, here it is, the new-- [Stops as he reaches in the box and feels something] Wha...What the? What is that?!? [Turns off his camera, then turns it back on a little while later] So, yeah, after a little research, I discovered what happened to my package. Looks like it was dispatched to the wrong address. [Holds laptop up to camera to show a video called "TRANSPLANT FAIL." Video shows an operating room]
Old Doctor: Clamp. [School Nurse hands him some scissors] Kidney. [Nurse holds a box, but it begins to vibrate. As the doctors watch it, a flatline can be heard]
[Scene changes to Gumball and Darwin crossing paths at the school playground]
Gumball and Darwin: Hey dude. [Proceed to make a long chain of high fives and other moves such as elbow bumps, kicks, dance, hand gestures, and other such actions]
Gumball: Alright, bye.
Darwin: See ya later.
[They both walk away]
[Scene changes to Richard recording himself in his children's room]
Richard: I love butter. But "science" claims that the body is not designed to consume only butter. Well, man has been known to overcome every obstacle in his existence. We've been on the moon, and proved the Earth is flat, and Albert Einstein brought a guy named Frank back from the grave! So I'll tell you what, real science is not taking no for an answer. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you...[Holds up a stick of butter on a popsicle stick] ButterSmear! It's the combined taste of all the essential food groups: Burgers, bacon, sausages, fries, bacon, burritos, curries, bacon, bacon, bacon--all in one healthy yet delicious yellow spread. I've eaten ButterSmear every meal for eleven days now and I feel no ill side effects at all. In fact, I've lost feeling in my entire body. Pledge today to help me push mankind one step further. [Eats the ButterSmear] Mmm...ButterSmear, makes everything taste a little bit butter. [Falls face-first onto keyboard. Richard speaks in a muffled voice] If you're watching this video, please call an ambulance.
[Scene changes to a screen reading "Four Steps to get in Shape". The screen changes to show Coach at the football field]
Coach Russo: Alright everyone, lemme show you how you can go from this...[A photo of Coach wearing glasses pops up]...to this...[An identical photo pops up except for no glasses] First, let's get this heart pumping. Start with squats. It's gonna go fast so just try to follow my moves. [As Coach begins counting, the footage becomes squished] And one...and two...and three...and four. Feel the burn, that's right. Now for some sit-ups. [The footage moves along with Coach again, this time falling back and then pulling up again] And one...and two...and three...and four. [Coach breathes in exhaustion] Let's keep going. Push-ups. [The footage shrinks and begins to bend forward, once again as Coach counts] And one...and two...now you're working. And three...[Grunts] and four. Well done, everyone. In my next video we'll be into more acrobatic exercises. Here's a little teaser. Backflip. [Grunts as the footage does a back-and-forth spin] This was four steps to get in shape with Coach Russo.
[Scene changes to a black screen. An ominous voice reads words as they appear on-screen]
Ominous Voice: Warning: NOT for the faint-hearted. You are about to see the first real footage of a lost episode called...THE GRIEVING. Most people who have watched it have never been seen again. The Grieving contains scenes that some viewers may find extremely upsetting. The Amazing World of Gumball cannot and will not accept any responsibility for the effects of what you are about to see. You...have...been...warned.
[The screen is black for a few seconds, and then cuts away to the Saxophone Chihuahua]
[A blue Sausage Dog walks up to a fire hydrant and sniffs it. He lifts his leg to use the bathroom on it]
Fire Hydrant: Hey! [Sausage Dog whimpers. He then walks back to the hydrant] Oh no, no, no, no. [Sausage Dog lifts his leg again] Hey! [Sausage Dog stops, but soon slowly lifts his leg once again] No! [Sausage Dog lifts his leg again] Hey--hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, back off! Bad boy. [Sausage Dog lifts his leg again] Hey. [Sausage Dog begins to repeatedly lift his leg up and down] AaaAAAaaahh...heEEey...heeEEEyy...aaAAAHHH. Hey! Hey! Hey! Heeeey! Hey...no! [Fire Hydrant tries to blow the dog away] Go away! [Continues blowing] Fine! You asked for it! [Sprays water on the dog. The dog whimpers and runs away. The fire hydrant laughs, but then screams as a car goes out of control and hits him, sending him flying]
"Weird Like You and Me"
[Scene changes to show Gumball and Darwin appear on their doorstep. They then tumble onto the sidewalk where Gumball plays a ukulele, and they sing "Weird Like You and Me"]
Gumball: You're my half-brother and my fully-fledged friend.
Darwin: We're buddies forever from beginning to the end.
Gumball and Darwin: Nobody's a nobody and everybody is weird like you and me!
Darwin: Don't have to look beside me to know that you are there.
[Gumball and Darwin appear as one-merged character]
Gumball and Darwin: If two things act as one are they still a pair?
[Gumball and Darwin turn back to normal]
Nobody's a nobody and everybody is weird like you and me!
Anais: I'm the sugar, you're the lemons, we're a weird lemonade.
But you're[Kisses Gumball on the cheek]
the brothers[Kisses Darwin on the cheek]
that I'd never trade.
Gumball, Darwin and Anais: Nobody's a nobody and everybody is weird like you and me!

Nicole and Richard: Nobody's a nobody and everybody's weird like you and me!
Chorus: You can walk, run, swim, roll, hop, skip, or fly,
The Wattersons: If we're going different ways you're my kind of guy.
Difference doesn't matter, if nobody's the same!
The Wattersons and Masami: There is no two clouds alike in the great big sky.
Bobert: You could be a robot,
Banana Joe: A banana,
Tina: A T-Rex,
Anton: A half a sandwich,
The Sun: A flaming ball,
Lucy Simian: A missing link,
Hector: Or your mom could be a witch.
[Mrs. Jötunheim pours some potions into a pot, causing an explosion]
Sussie: Nobody's a nobody and everybody's weird just like Sussie!
Teri: If you're fragile as PAPER![Gets blown away]
Carrie: Or made of nothing at all.
Idaho: You still won't be as weird as a potato head!
William: Or a flying eyeball.
Clown: Nobody's a nobody and everybody is weird like you and me.
[Scene changes to Granny Jojo and Louie at the park, sitting on a bench]
GrannyJojo: Your age doesn't matter; it's only skin deep.[Stretches her face and ties her ears to keep a smile on her face]
Louie: And when I'm around you, Jojo, my pacemaker skips a beat!
The Wattersons: Nobody's a nobody and everybody is weird like you and me!
[Camera flies to space, showing Gumball and Penny]
Penny: So don't be scared to come out of your shell too.
Gumball: There's always someone out there to love the real you.
Planets: Nobody's a nobody and everybody is weird like you and me!
[Camera falls back down on Earth]
Chorus: You can walk, run, swim, roll, hop, skip, or fly,
If we're going different ways you're my kind of guy.

Nobody's a nobody and everybody is weird like you and me!
Weird like you and me!
