Richard creates chaos in the Chanax building when he is mistaken for the long lost CEO. Nicole and a disgruntled employee must save everyone from Richard's dangerous ideas.
The episode starts with Nicole and Richard driving up then parking next to Chanax Inc.. Richard asks why they have to pay the cable bill in person instead of online, and Nicole explains that their internet has been cut off (even showing that Gumball, Darwin and Anais have been acting depressed since).
Richard just says to give the kids time to experience all the good things about life, while ironically acting like he's in a video by saying "If you feel me, smash the like button below". Nicole questions his reason by asking him what he means by all the good things about life that are not on the internet, which Richard is unable to answer.
Nicole shames him on how he can't think of one good thing about real life, so she gives him hints about one, showing him a photo of all five of them together and saying it's something he's built his entire life around, giving him emotional support for years, and starts with "f". Richard joyously exclaims "Food!" But after judging by Nicole's face that his answer wasn't correct, he re-guesses "family". Nicole then orders Richard to stay in the car while she pays the bills.
Nicole walks in and asks the secretary where she can pay, but gets ridiculed and called a 'dinosaur', an old-fashioned person, for paying it in person and not online. After a short wait, Nicole finally gets informed she can pay on the fourth floor. The secretary returns to consoling another employee, who misunderstood the insult and believed there was a real dinosaur in the lobby.
Meanwhile in the car, Richard decides to get some food after being approached by Earl, asking him to turn his sound system down, but finds out it's only Richard's stomach. He spies a vending machine in the building, but hesitates because he doesn't work there. A "shoulder devil" advises him to act like he owns the place and everything will be fine. However, when asked angrily if he has an appointment, he aggressively responds that he doesn't need one, because he owns the place. Word got around quickly that the long-lost founder was back, and they quickly realize that they need to make some changes, including changing into more expensive-looking ties.
When the Floppy Disk doubts he's really the founder, he is dropped into a pit by The Goblin. They then tell Richard they thought he'd been dead for years because he's normally very reclusive. Goblin also discussed changing the design of the building, ordering construction to begin immediately. Goblin gives a short speech to Richard about his out-of-the-box thinking and ideas, as Richard begins to grow more confident in being the founder.
The scene then cuts to a promotional-style video of Richard attempting to answer employees' questions and polite complaints about the workplace. Though, it soon becomes clear that it's actually a compilation of Richard replacing parts of the office with more "fun" alternatives, ignoring all of the employees' obvious discontent in the new changes. Richard also reveals that his first step to changing the design of the building is to completely destroy the structural foundation. He ends the video by stating his ironic slogan: "Chanax: We're Listening".
Meanwhile, Nicole continues on a wild goose chase to pay the cable bill, and encounters Phil. Frustrated with him, she decides to take this all the way to the top of the chain of command. She then learns that because of Richard's new innovation to the elevator, she needs Phil to make it work. Once they finally reach the top, Phil decides to stay in the new fun elevator while Nicole demands to see the person in charge, until it turns out to be Richard. After Nicole tells off Richard for not staying in the car, Richard admits to the Goblin he isn't really the founder, and they escape to the corporate helicopter. They soon plummet to the ground in the new fun helicopter, which turns out to only be an ice cream truck, as the whole Chanax Inc. building collapses. In the mangled ice cream truck, Nicole asks if she still needs to pay her bill, and the episode ends with Goblin ripping it up and telling her to just pay it online.

Some Plans For Work
[Richard laughs in embarrassement]
Floppy Disk: I, don´t think that´s him.
[The Goblin press a button under his desk, and the Floppy Disk falls through a pit]
Goblin: Of course it’s him. What are the odds someone would show up, pretending to be the founder the exact day we invited him to approve the new office design?
Richard: ...Yeah, is that guy gonna be okay?
Goblin: Do you want him to be okay?
Richard: [confused] Yes...
Goblin: [picks his phone] Hello Linda, there's a guy coming down to reception. He's already landed? [inhales sharply]. Well, sweep him up and pay his medical bills. [hangs up the phone] He´s gonna be fine. Anyway, thanks for coming, we know you´re normally reclusive, never leave the house, and frankly, we'd thought you'd been dead for years, but we´re glad you´re here. Now, as you know, we hired the most expensive architect money could buy. I tell you I haven’t seen so many zeros since I walked through economy to get to first class,am I right?
Employees: Ha ha ha ha! We’re rich!
Goblin: I must warn you,these designs seem pretty cutting edge, but we know you’re used to thinking outside the current aesthetic.
Richard: Yeah, well I know a long word too... [silence] spaghetti.
Jeff: He’s a genius!
Goblin:[brings in table with sheet on it] Okay, so allow me to present the bold new future for CHANAX.
Richard: I love it!
Goblin: Don’t you want me to take off-
Richard: No! It’s perfect as it is.
Jeff: Of course! Why didn’t we see it before?
Dolphin Man: The long, sleek combs, the bald silhouette, it’s genius!
