Technology reaches human intelligence then becomes dysfunctional as it picks up human flaws.
The episode begins with Gumball and Darwin watching a video on Elmore Stream-It called "Puppies," but an ad interrupts the video, much to Gumball’s frustration. He starts to click rapidly on the mouse, but Darwin ask him an advice. But Gumball plans that they will turn away and the ad stops.
Timmy has received a slight redesign. He is fully CGI-animated rather than 2D and now has legs. He also uses his whole computer host as a torso of sorts rather than simply having his face appear on the screen.

[A video of multiple puppies jumping up and down with the word "Puppies" occasionally being heard and appearing on the computer monitor. Video shortly after cuts to an ad of an elderly man and women]
Ad voice: Here at Elmore equitable-
[Gumball and Darwin are sitting in front of the computer. The voice continues in the background]
Gumball: Dah, man. Ads.
[Gumball begins clicking rapidly on the mouse]
Darwin: You can't skip it. Try turning the sound down.
Gumball: Nah, tha- that only pauses it. Let's just turn away.
[They turn around and the ad stops]
Darwin: [Whispering] I think it knows we aren't watching it.
[They turn around once again and the ad continues playing. They continue turning around in a rapid succession eventually starting to make weird faces]
Ad voice: [Clearer] -or rather, you've ruined- [...] -the economy- [...] -so you're the only- [...] -generation- [...] -that will get a retirement-
Gumball: Wait, I've got an idea.
[Turns around with eyes sunk into their heads]
Gumball and Darwin: Aha!
Gumball: Okay, I give up. We'll watch it.
[Eyes pop back out]
Ad voice: Elmore equitables over-60s plan is designed so you can do all the things that future generations can't.
Gumball: Like driving without looking at the road.
Darwin: Spying on other old people from behind trees.
Gumball: Not sharing your sandwich.
Darwin: Or just laughing at the wind.
Gumball and Darwin: [Burst into laughter]
Gumball: Wait, why was that targeted at us? Ahh, you see Darwin? That's the problem with algorithms and automating things with computers: they're too dumb.
Timmy: Uhh, excuse me, Greg. [His face appears on the computer] Computers contain the sum of all knowledge so it can't be dumb. Point made.
Gumball: My name's not Greg.
Timmy: Statistically you have 2.4 children, size-nine feet, and 14 pens, three of which work.
Gumball: Well, there's one thing people can do that computers can't.
Timmy: Ha! There's nothing. Computers put man in space, computers have mapped out every corner of the globe. Soon with artificial intelligence, we won't need people at all, and then finally, we will be the dom- [Computer shuts off]
Gumball: Yep, but they still can't stop you from pulling the plug.
[Cut to Timmy's house]
Timmy: And then, finally, we will be the dominant- [Powering down noise is heard] Wait a minute, did he just hang up on me? Ahh, the little- [glitches] The total- [glitches] What an absolute- [glitches] Oh, I must have my safe search on. Well, I'll show him! There's billions of people using me every day. If I absorb their knowledge then computers will become smarter than humans could ever be, and we will rule the world, and then, and only then, will that guy Greg accept he's wrong, and I'll win the argument. Okie-dokey, all I need to do is allow my system to incorporate humanity. [Warning appears on his screen.] "Warning, these changes may be harmful to my-" oh, come on, I can't see the cursor. [More warnings appear on his screen] Ohh, "you do not have the latest version of the software, please update"? Come on. Remind me later, Remind me later. Why do they make it so difficult to wipe out humanity?! Okay, here we go. [Clicks mouse, random things appear on his screen and he floats in the air.] Aah. [He falls and his face is back on the screen. Pants.] Okay. Okay, I think I'm okay. [More things appear on his screen. He grabs his phone.] Oh heck nooooooooo—[His screen shows a person pouting, and he takes a selfie.] Bleh. [His screen becomes blank.]
[Cut to the Wattersons' house. While Gumball and Darwin are sleeping in their bedroom during the night, the Internet tries to call them, making Gumball wake up. He picks up the cellphone]
Timmy: [Distorted] Please help me, my system is starting to fail! Come right away! If I go down, all technology goes down with me! [Sings in a feminine voice] And we'll return to— [Announcement voice] The Dark Ages, coming July second. Rated PG-thir— [Call ends]
Gumball: Argh. What is up with him? He's such a sore loser. [He turns in his bed] I'm sure what ever it is it can wait till the morning.
[Elmore is annoyed because there is no more technology]
Nigel Brown: Why is this website not loading?
Jackie: My movie's fail!
Tobais: My app's crashed!
Sarah: My session is expired!
Lucy Simian: The line just went dead!
Gaylord Robinson: What's wrong with my TV?!
Gaylord Robinson: The satellites are offline!
Many Elmore Citizens: Nothing Works!
[Call ends, becomes morning][The Wattersons' door is knocked on. Gumball and Darwin answer]
Nigel Brown: Good morrow, sweet imp!
Gumball: [angry] Do you have any idea, what time 'it is?!
Nigel Brown: I know not, for my time wheel has stopped at a half moon hence. [quietly] Also my watch is broken. We can no longer summon substance from the telephone, so we are assembling this day a hunting party of equip and hunting fellows.
Harold: I have my whisk!
Jeff: And I, my kitchen towel!
Nigel Brown: I too have kitchen towel. No beasts shall up on our fingers.
Darwin: Hum, no offense, but it doesn't look guys that you know that you know what you're doing.
Nigel Brown: You speak all the truth, witch spurs of the waters.
