What happen:

The episode starts out with Hack and Slash, each riding on the front of a tank chasing Bob into the city. The two come at Bob from different directions, and Bob steps out of the way. Megabyte shows up and asks for a simple favor. When Bob refuses, Megabyte tells him to think of his friends.

Then the episode goes to the next day. The alarm clock goes off. The bed throws Bob into the shower and then the  hair styler messes up his hair and he comes out with gold hair. A panic call comes in from Enzo, who informs Bob that Dot's Diner has been trashed. Right after bob shows up at the Dinner, Megabyte shows up in a Double Sided Vid Window. As long as Bob does one little favor, MB will try to make sure that this sort of thing won't happen again.

The standoff is interrupted by an incoming game. Megabyte orders his legions to make sure that Bob does not play a game until the favor is done. They are successful at keeping Bob out, and this time, the User wins. The entire sector is off-line and nullified. (There is a big dark hole where the Game cube had been, and the sprites that had been in the game are no where to be seen.

Bob goes to see Phong at Dot's request. After defeating Phong at a game of Pong, Phong explains that COMMAND.COM has tried to eliminate Megabyte at every upgrade, but the virus is very clever  and has bad file servers in every sector.

Bob shows up at Megabyte's Tor  and is very convincing at being impressed with MB's power. Down in the lower levels, Megabyte has created a big army. A door is opened and a bight light shows a tear. MB has found a Class 12 tear leading to the Super Computer. The favor that Megabyte wants is for Bob to stabilize the tear into a portal. (Only games dropped by the User and Guardians are able to stabilize a tear.) Bob  is forced to use Glitch to create a portal, because MB pushed him into the tear. MB pulls bob back through the tear using the leash that Megabyte put on him, before pushing him through the tear. Hack and Slash show up carrying Dot, and during the distraction Bob knocks over the control console, allowing the tear to break free.

Just then a Game cube descends, to Megabyte's delight. The Game takes place on an aircraft carrier, and Megabyte infects the User's fighter craft. The tear has been stabilized into a portal at the end of the third level.

The battle goes through an asteroid field, much like the one in Star Wars, and Dot fires the shot which destroys the battle cruiser at the second level. The third level is an ice tunnel, which takes out all but three ships; Bob, Dot, and Megabyte. During the battle, bob shoots down MBís ship, and then he slices the wing off of Bob's ship, which takes out Dot's ship. Bob ends up hanging from a rope from Glitch, then uses Glitch as a rope to get over the portal and drop in. This ends the game and destabilizes the tear. MB threatens Dot with some really nasty fingernails, but Bob comes back, and the tear/portal disappears completely. Bob boasts that this was a result of a command that he picked up at the Super Computer's armory, and sets off another two commands to make him and Dot disappear. Megabyte assumes it was a RETURN command and orders everyone to go back to the Diner. When he leaves, an invisible Bob says, "hidden file commands, ya gotta love 'em."

Later, at the Diner, Bob says that Supercomputer was a nice place to visit, but he'd rather stay in Mainframe. Cecil complains that it is not his function to clean up, as more pieces of the Diner fall down.
