The episode begins in the morning on the bus. Gumball is playing a game of Would you Rather? with his younger brother; the game does not last very long when Gumball offers mediocre choices for the game. Much to Gumball's dismay, Darwin asks someone else on the bus whether they can change the subject. Molly takes up on his offer and begins to tell everyone on the bus a story of her life; despite all the buildup to a satisfying climax, her story only tells of a time when she turned off the faucet. Gumball makes a sarcastic quip about the story's quality, and because she lacks a sense of sarcasm, she continues to bore the students on the bus with her story. This continues until the bus arrives at school.
In the building, Gumball and Darwin are utterly irritated with Molly's non-stop stories and are ready to do something about it. Gumball's initial attempt to end her stories involves having Darwin do the talking for him; put on the spot, Darwin quickly tries to think of a kind way to approch the situation, and despite Gumball's interruptions, Darwin suggests to Molly that they go to the library to edit her stories.
In the library, Gumball tries again to communicate to Molly that her stories are mundane by using the editing software to cut out any of the actual "story." Again, Darwin tries to recover for his brother's blunder by stating how the two love Molly's stories just fine. Molly then proceeds to tell the boys more of her life stories throughout class time and up until lunch.
At lunch, Molly is still yapping away about her tame life, and the Watterson brothers, deciding that they have had enough try to literally tune her out. However, Molly says relatively interesting words in her stories (such as explosion, murder, and backflip) that peak the interests of the boys only for the words to be used in a boring context that cause Gumball and Darwin to tune out again.
Later in gym class, Molly is still telling her two friends about her interesting experiences, and Gumball is thus on his wit's end with her. Simultaneously, Jamie walks toward her class with a menacing grin on her face and a dodgeball in her hands. Gumball suggests that they have Molly take the hit of Jamie's vigorous dodgeball throws, but Darwin suggests the more rational solution of having one of their classmates listen to her stories in their places; however, the children all decide that they would all rather be hit by Jamie's dodgeballs than hear another word of Molly's stories. All the students are getting pelted by dodgeballs, and the Watterson duo prepare to take a hit; Molly takes a hit for them, though, explaining that this is her way of expressing gratitude for the boys taking their time to listen to her. Despite the emotional tension, Molly manages to recover quickly from the ball and continues to tell her stories.
The next day, Molly arrives at school, but she can not seem to find anyone, specifically Gumball and Darwin. It is revealed that the two are trying to hide from Molly in order to avoid listening to her stories. Quickly, the two find a hiding spot in an old abandoned restroom. Just when they are settling into the location, they run into Molly.
Surprised, the two decide to ask why Molly is here. They are saddened to hear that Molly hides here ("her special dark place") when she feels awkward and lonely. After hearing these words, the two brothers walk out of the room with one motivation: to give Molly a story worth telling! They manage to enlist the help of several students and staff to help after they reveal that they too have been hiding from Molly.
Ten minutes pass, and Molly walks out of "her special dark place." This is the cue of the students and the staff to begin their scenario. The "story" starts by Bobert walking from around the corner to greet Molly, only for him to short circuit from water pouring out of the water fountain (with that being controlled by Carrie). Bobert's temporary short circuit causes him to accidently "kiss" Carmen; this triggers Alan to respond by launching himself into the robot. Bobert then hits Tina, who out of anger, thrusts Bobert into the wall with her tail; Bobert then transforms into combat mode and duels with Tina. Their fight causes a hole to tear into the wall where Principal Brown and the school nurse are trying to hide their sudden pregnancy from Principal Brown's girlfriend. Upon their exposure, the nurse throws a bottle of chemicals that nearly hits Molly. Mr. Small emerges from his office and inhales these chemicals; this causes him to go "insane" and trip the Coach who falls down the stories of the building.
Excited, Molly goes to the playground to tell Gumball and Darwin of what she has just observed. Initially, it seems as if Molly has not learned anything from the experience because she drones about the mundane details and not any of the "plot-points"; at the end, however, Molly reveals that she knew that the whole ordeal was a fake scenario set up by the boys to give her an interesting story. Touched by the act, Molly kisses the boys on the forehead as a sign of friendship, ending the episode.
[The episode begins with Gumball and Darwin riding the bus to school. They are playing a game of "Would you rather?"]
Gumball: Okay, ready? You gotta choose, or you'll never find true love! Would you rather... have skin that smells of cheese, or a tongue that grows leg hair?
Darwin: I have trouble seeing how either of those choices would ever allow me to find true love.
Gumball: It's a game, dude! You have to choose. You know, like, would you rather pass wind through your nose, or smell with your backside?
Darwin: Ugh, okay, whatever. Smell with my backside.
Gumball: Would be pretty bad every time you sneeze.
Darwin: Okay, can we change the subject? [To the other students] Anybody, please!
Molly: Ooh, ooh, I've got a story! So, I was staying the night at my grandma's house in the woods, in the middle of nowhere, when I was woken up by this weird noise. Drip, drip, drip. It was coming from the kitchen. I crept across the hallway, it was getting louder and louder! Drip! Drip!
[Gumball is holding onto Darwin in fear, while Banana Joe bursts into laughter]
Banana Joe: Sorry, I just got the butt sneeze thing.
Molly: I turned the handle, pushed open the door... and...
[Gumball and Darwin are perspiring; Their teeth chatter]
[Sarah's head is melting]
[Banana Joe's mouth is agape]
Molly: Well, someone had left the faucet on, so I tightened it up and went back to bed.
Gumball: [Releases Darwin after a brief pause] I don't get it. What's the payoff here?
Banana Joe: It was the faucet all along! Hahahahaha! Actually, it's not that funny.
Gumball: [Sarcastic] No it was great! We were expecting there to be something good, and there wasn't. What a twist.
Molly: Oh really? Well you're gonna love my other stories. So I got this uncle, and he's a huge practical joker. And last time I saw him, guess what he did? He made me a sandwich! [Laughs loudly]
[Gumball and Darwin give her a blank stare. Molly carries on through a series of overlapping stories, with her classmates growing increasingly bored]
Molly: And there was this one Christmas where I didn't wake up 'til like seven AM, and then everything... On my sixth birthday we had pizza, and... One time on the street, I saw a dog! I've got a million stories just like that.
[The bus passes by Gary Hedges, who is walking his dog]
Molly: Hey! A million and one. You know why my favorite color is blue? No, me neither. I asked my mom for a red apple 'cause I don't like the green ones, and she only... And she showed me her new necklace, and I had no opinion on it anyway... I ordered a cheeseburger, but when I opened up the cheeseburger-
Tobias: Hey Ocho, what's the most annoying sound you can make?
Ocho: [Emits a noise akin to that of a dial-up modem]
Tobias: Ahh, keep going, it's so much better than her.
Molly: Joyful Burger, and they gave me exactly what I-
Darwin: [To Gumball] I wish life was like in movies. Right now, we'd be going through some cross-fade montage instead of suffering through every...single...word.
Molly: We all thought that was ironic.
[The bus is now parked at the school. Gumball and Darwin disembark with some of the students]
Gumball: [Looks around] Wait... What are we doing at school?! [Drops to his knees] NOOO! That journey was so boring I thought the whole day had passed, [Cries, pressing his face to the cement] but it's still morning!
Molly: Hey, did I tell you about when my brown crayon ran out? Don't worry though, this story has a happy ending.
[Gumball picks himself up, displaying a hostile demeanor]
Gumball: Does it involve the main character being slowly run over by a bus?!
Molly: Noo, [Giggles] I used felt-tip pens instead. True story. Which reminds me of another stor-
[The school bell rings. Gumball and Darwin are walking in the hallway, with Molly close behind]
Molly: And the thing is, it was my favorite pencil as well. One of the red ones- [Continues to ramble on]
Gumball: [Whispering to Darwin] Feels like we've been walking down this corridor for half an hour now. It's like a... a superpower. She can distort time and space using only boredom!
[It is shown that Gumball and Darwin are unable to move forward due to a lack of friction]
Rocky: Nah, I just buffed the floor.
Molly: That's what I'm talking about now-
Gumball: [Irritated] Somebody's gotta man up and put an end to this!
Molly: So they're like-
[Gumball takes a deep breath and turns to confront Molly, which results in him spinning around in circles until he is stopped by Darwin]
Gumball: Thank you.
Molly: Well I mean, I guess they're similar to-
Gumball: Alright girl, listen up! Because... [Loses his nerve, pushing Darwin in front] Uh, D-Darwin has something he wants to say to you.
Darwin: [Hushed] Wait, what?
Gumball: [Hushed] Tell her, dude. You know, how you think her stories are...
[They look into Molly's exaggerated puppy-dog eyes]
Gumball: You know... [Bluntly] Straight up awful!
Darwin: I though we were both chickening out. That was like headbutting a kitten! [To Molly] Uhh, he meant "awful" as in they... fill us with awe!
Molly: Ah, ha! I thought I was boring you for a second.
Darwin: Noo, your stories are great. It's just, maybe they could be um-
Gumball: Shorter. Better. Over.
Darwin: H-He means they just need a little editing. Come with us.
[In unison, the three exhale repeatedly, propelling themselves backward. They go to the library in order to use the computer]
Darwin: Okay, so Gumball used this editing software to make your stories more... uh, to the point.
[A doctored video of Molly starts playing on the monitor]
Molly: Uh, so yesterday- [Numerous clips, where her dialogue is cut off, flash by] True story.
[Darwin notices Molly's dismay and forces a laugh]
Darwin: [Fibbing] Yeah, just kidding. Your stories are perfect the way they are.
Molly: [Cheers up] Oh good! I hope you would tell me if I was boring.
[Gumball tries to speak out, but Darwin grabs his lips, causing his head to explode]
Darwin: Bless you.
[Gumball and Darwin are now in their classroom, alongside Molly and a number of classmates]
Molly: And I woke up, and I wasn't in my own bedroom, but then I remembered I was on vacation-
Gumball: [Sighs; To Darwin] My brain is full. Every time she says something, I have to forget something else to make room for it! If she says another word, I'm gonna forget my parents. Do you really want that on your conscience, whatever your name is?
Darwin: I'm sorry, I just don't have the heart to hurt her feelings.
Molly: Have you ever-
[School bell rings]
Gumball: Home time at last!
Darwin: You mean lunchtime.
Gumball: [Gruffly] I hate you.
Darwin: It's not me, it's time!
Gumball: I hate you both.
Molly: I guess I'm just-
[Gumball, Darwin, and Molly enter the cafeteria, sitting together at a table]
Molly: Last night I had the craziest dream that my pajamas had pockets, and then I woke up and they did have pockets. I mean-
Darwin: [Whispers] Maybe we should just try and tune her out.
Gumball: [Whispers] Okay.
[Gumball and Darwin each push a hand into the side of their head, adjusting the frequency as their eyes turn to static. While Molly is speaking, they briefly tune in again whenever she says something interesting]
Molly: That time, and there was this explosion-
Gumball and Darwin: [Gasp]
Molly: of interest in my stamp collection.
Gumball and Darwin: [Sigh]
Molly: That always reminds of the time I did a backflip-
Gumball and Darwin: [Gasp]
Molly: and then the pancakes were done.
Gumball and Darwin: [Sigh]
Molly: I saw a murder-
Gumball and Darwin: [Gasp]
Molly: of crows. And there was a tsunami-
Gumball and Darwin: [Gasp]
Molly: of homework. End of the world!
Gumball and Darwin: [Gasp]
Molly: And I was like, it's not the end of the world if you run out of margarine. And so we went to the store and bought some more-
[They both groan, but Gumball prevents Darwin from tuning her out again]
Gumball: Hold on, dude. If we keep doing this to our brains, we might do some real damage.
[The side of each brother's face droops and becomes disfigured]
Darwin: How many fingers am I holding up?
Darwin: You're going to have to look down. I can't move anything below the neck.
Molly: I say that like three times a day-
Gumball: Thirty eleven. Ah, I'm glad we stopped before it was too late. [Bites into a paper napkin, then dabs his mouth with a sandwich]
Molly: My third favorite sentence is, "Not for me, I'm allergic."
[A whistle blows; Gumball's class is in the gymnasium with Coach Russo]
Molly: And I was in the kitchen making toast, and my dad smelled the toast and he ate it. True story.
[Jamie grins while holding a dodgeball. She approaches Gumball and Darwin, as the rest of the class hide behind Molly]
Molly: Hey did I tell you about my birthday party? I didn't have one, but I-
Gumball: I'm sorry dude, but she's gotta go. I'm gonna push her in front of Jamie.
Darwin: No, wait. What if we, you know... pass the ball?
Gumball: I don't care about the game! I'm talking about Molly!
Darwin: So am I. I-I just thought is was a good analogy on theme with the, you know, dodgeball and... Doesn't matter. What I meant was... [Steps around Molly] Hey guys! Have you heard Molly's stories?
Molly: I picked up the ace of hearts, and-
Banana Joe: [Somber] Yes, and I'm afraid there is only one way to ensure we never have to hear another.
Molly: I think if anyone else had-
[Dramatic music plays as Banana Joe approaches Jamie and steels himself for her throw. The dodgeball decapitates him and his body drops to the floor. Gumball and Darwin watch in horror as Carmen, Alan, Leslie, Sarah, Tobias, and Bobert suffer similar fates. When their turn comes, they prepare to get hit, but Molly jumps in the path of the ball]
Molly: [Slow-motion] NOOO!
[It strikes her in the head and she falls]
Gumball: Molly! [Kneels, holds her neck] But why? Why save us?
Molly: [Looks up; Weakly] Because you listened to me.
[Molly closes her eyes and lowers her head, however Gumball and Darwin are only afforded a moment of silence before she recovers]
Molly: That reminds me of a story! We were camping, and-
Gumball: [Slow-motion] NOOO!
[The next day, Molly is on the school bus and searching for Gumball and Darwin. She is unable to find them, as they are wedged between her and the bus seat]
Molly: Guys? Guys?
[In the school hallway, she continues her search, passing by a familiar looking blue garbage can and orange alarm bell]
Molly: Guys? Gumball? Darwin?
[Next, she is seated at a table in the seemingly vacant cafeteria]
Molly: Hello? [Stands and walks off-screen]
[Gumball and Darwin appear in the background, disguised as a water cooler and a fire extinguisher]
Gumball: Quick! Let's get outta here, find the most remote place in school, and hide there until she graduates to college.
[Gumball and Darwin sneak into a bathroom with an "Out of Order" sign on the door]
Gumball: [Hushed] Shh, don't raise your voice.
Molly: [Emerges from the stall behind them; Hushed] Okay. You guys want some fries?
Gumball: Thanks. [Eats fry; Eyes go wide]
Darwin: [Sees Molly; Screams silently]
Gumball: Dude, what was that?
Darwin: You said don't raise your voice.
Gumball: [Sighs] Why are you here?
Molly: This is my special dark place.
Gumball and Darwin: What?
Molly: A special dark place. You know? It's where you go when no one wants to talk to you because you have nothing interesting to say, and you feel really boring and awkward. Don't you have one?
[Gumball and Darwin are shown with tears streaming down their cheeks]
Gumball: [Sniffles] Of course. Everyone's got a special dark place. R-Right Darwin?
Darwin: Y-Yeah, mine is in uhh... [Voice trails off]
Darwin: Never mind.
Gumball: [To Molly] Hey, I have an idea! Why don't you come and join us in the playground in ten minutes?
[Gumball and Darwin leave the bathroom and head down the hall]
Darwin: [Uneasy] What are we doing?
Gumball: We're giving Molly a proper story to tell! Something with danger, comedy, action, romance, or literally anything happening at all.
Darwin: And an ending.
Gumball: Yes! And a gosh darn ending! Who's with me?!
Muffled Voices: Yes!
Gumball: Who said that?
[Gumball opens the nearby locker, and a large group of students step out, followed by Principal Brown]
Gumball: What the? What are you all doing in there?
Banana Joe: We're hiding from Molly.
Gumball: You do realize there's like a hundred lockers in this corridor?
Nigel Brown: We panicked.
[Molly exits the bathroom and makes her way through an empty hallway. Turning a corner, she is spotted by Carrie, who flies off to signal Bobert]
Carrie: [Gives a thumbs up] Okay.
[As Carrie disappears, Bobert runs around the corner. He casually returns, intercepting Molly by the drinking fountain]
Bobert: Hello Molly.
[The fountain sprays Bobert and he goes haywire, rocketing in the opposite direction. He crashes to a halt just as his face comes into contact with Carmen]
Alan: [Gasps] How dare you kiss my promised! I shall have my revenge on your treachery, Bobert!
Carmen: Alan, don't fight over me!
[Alan unties his knot, using the air stream to launch himself into Bobert. Together, they fly over Molly's head and collide with Tina]
Tina: [Snarls] What kind of girl do you think I am?! [Futilely tries to slap Bobert] Oh whatever.
[Tina whacks him with her tail instead, and he smashes into the opposite wall]
Bobert: Engaging defense protocol. [Activates his combat mode]
[Tina charges at him, and they grapple as Molly gets out of the way. An errant laser destroys the wall near Molly, revealing Principal Brown and School Nurse in the Nurse's Office]
School Nurse: [Spanish] Principal Marrón, no podemos ocultarnos nuestro secreto de la Miss Simian. [Subtitle] Principal Brown, we can no longer hide our secret from Miss Simian.
[Principal Brown appears to be pregnant]
Nigel Brown: [Spanish] Oh Nurse! Caramba! Hemos sido descubiertos! [Subtitle] Oh Nurse! Gasp! We've been discovered!
[School Nurse picks up a vial and throws it past Molly. It shatters by a door across the hall]
Mister Small: [Opens the door] Oh, hi Molly, how ya doin'?
[Upon exposure to the released vapors, Mr. Small raves incoherently and starts convulsing violently. His spasmodic movements send him racing up the corridor and off-screen. He then trips Coach Russo, who lands on her back. The floor collapses beneath her, and she proceeds to fall through several more while Molly watches from above. The severed gas and electrical lines trigger an explosion, and Molly rushes outdoors to the playground where Gumball and Darwin are waiting]
Molly: Guys! Guys! You'll never guess what just happened!
Gumball: A story? Please tell us!
Molly: Well, I was walking down the corridor, and I saw that water fountain.
Gumball: Yeah, and?!
Molly: Oh nothing. I just forgot there was a water fountain there. And then I saw Carmen, Alan, Tina, and Bobert, and I'm pretty sure Alan and Carmen are more than just friends. Gossip! Oh, and you shoulda seen Principal Brown. He had a bellyache. And then Mr. Small said hi to me, but to be honest, I was kinda distracted by the coach. She was doing some plumbing.
[Gumball and Darwin are sharing a vexed expression]
Molly: But the best part of the story, is the end. Because clearly you guys set up all that stuff so I'd have something interesting to tell. That means we're friends. True story. [Kisses both of them on the forehead]
Gumball: We're gonna hear that story for the rest of our lives, aren't we?
