Plot Overview

Mouse Fitzgerald finds a building with a Help Wanted sign, and gets a job (while drunk) from a shark regarding a rectangular businessman who needs to be driven to Cheese Industries. Instead, Mouse (and Skillet) takes the pink character and asks him to do a porno with a doll. After Mouse blows up the building, he and Skillet rob a bank to buy some beer at Rhoda's bar. Mouse buys 12 beers, attempts to make out with a woman, and eventually runs into a peanut shaped cop who's stoned out of his mind....all the time. Upon spending $64,000, Mouse realizes he and Skillet will need to get jobs to cover up the fact that they rob banks, but first stop at another bar, and spend another $300. On their way out, Mouse gets hit by a few cars and encounters a disfigured man. Upon returning, the shark seems to know everything Mouse did, and gives him another job anyway. Mouse meets up with a gigantic eyeball, who likes to work "eye" into his sentences.
