The Planet Express crew believes they cannot trust eachother. Fry accuses Bender of using his toothbrush to polish his ass. Leela accuses Amy of hitting her punching bag with Amy's golf clubs. Amy accuses Leela of denting the ship and Hermes accuses Zoidberg of eating his exotic lunches. After video proof showed various planet express crew members doing the acts they were all accused of, Professor Farnsworth believes it's time for a trust building work retreat. Dan McMasters is in charge of this work retreat. Dan McMasters picks up a hitch-hiker in space. When it's revealed that the hitch-hiker is actually a human eating monster, the planet express crew runs around the ship trying to hide from it. The monster starts eating everybody on the planet express ship, it's revealed that he's actually a shape-shifter and everyone was safe. Fry and Bender, being the only two people thought to be alive, they shoot down Dan McMasters when he tells them it was a trick and everyone was safe. When it's revealed that Dan wasn't lying, Fry and Bender now have a secret between them. They now know they can trust eachother, but in the last scene, the television says that the missing case of Dan McMasters is thought to be a homicide, the person who turns the murderer gets 1 million dollars. If in the case that it's two criminals, if one of the criminals turns in the other, they will receive 2 million dollars and get off scot free without charges.
