When Milo borrows money to attend a concert, he soon learns that he must repay the loan before the night is over at a hefty interest rate.
Milo, Oscar, Bea, and Esmargot are sitting at a table in the Hokey Poke diner and are watching Brandon Bubbler on the television. Bea is psyched to go to his concert soon. Then, Bassy comes up for their order. Oscar gets four Flake Shakes. Esmargot insists on a chocolate one because it gives her pep. Bassy walks away and Albert Glass is seen sitting next to the four of them in the booth asking who wants to go the Brandon Bubbler concert with him. But the four are shocked because no one noticed him. So he explains he was there the whole time with them. So Esmargot puts slime on him so they can see him. Albert invites Esmargot with him to get tickets and they leave the diner together. Bassy comes back and serves up the Flake Shakes. She walks away and Randy Pincherson is seen drinking down Esmargot’s left Shake. He starts to hit on Bea asking if she wants to go with him to the concert but she declines. Oscar becomes jealous now. Randy flaunts off his money that he has to Bea, but she still rejects. Milo and Oscar tell him that they are all able to buy their own tickets and he is not needed. Randy leaves after gloating again about the amount of money he has. Bea then decides to start to buy tickets to the show. Oscar quickly buys his and Bea’s ticket from their money. Milo then asks who’s going to pay for his ticket. Oscar tells him that he should but Milo is shocked. Bea tells him he should get a job like her and Oscar have. She baby-sits and Oscar tutors Pass, Punt, and Fumble. Milo wants them to pay for his ticket but they refuse and tell him to work. Milo storms off, upset.
The next day, Bea and Oscar are sitting in the diner once again complaining about how exhausted they are from their jobs. Milo suddenly appears on a hot motorcycle with expensive clothing and money canons. He crashes it into a booth and walks over to Bea and Oscar. Oscar asks if he gets a job, but Milo declines. He tells them that Randy Pincherson loaned him some money. Randy Pincherson enters the diner slyly and starts explaining how to loan will work. Milo must pay back all the money he was given along with 300 percent interest. He also warns Milo that if he doesn't pay him back, he'll get "the pinch". Randy leaves echoing “the pinch”. Oscar and Bea are disappointed in Milo and exit as well.
Milo is later seen later searching in his sofa for money. But all he finds is a half eaten cookie and a baseball card of Babe Ruthfish. Milo eats the card and the doorbell rings. It’s Randy Pincherson. Milo tries to trick him by saying no ones home, but that doesn’t fool Randy. He comes through the back door and sits next to Milo. Milo is scared out of his mind. Milo didn't pay back all the money so Randy was about ready to pinch him. Though Oscar and Bea told Randy that they already paid Milo's loan for him. Randy knew this and he only wanted to scare him. They then scold Milo telling him that he's lazy and selfish. The two angrily leave and Milo feels sorry for himself, with tears streaming down his cheeks.
Milo then tries to get a job as a cashier at Hokey Poke to earn his money and get his friends back. After a long day, Milo finishes slowly and is sad with grief. Chief comes out to pay him his money. However, the money he earns is not enough to pay back his friends. So Chief tells him to sell the hot motorcycle still mantled into the booth.
Milo confronts his two friends and they are still mad at him. They tell him to leave, but he stays and gives them tickets to concert and all the money he owes them. They’re shocked and happy. He explains to them what he did and they leave to go to the concert.
The three enter into the concert and see all their friends jamming out to Brandon Bubbler. Oscar and Bea dance around having fun. But, Milo falls asleep at the foot of the stage, tired out from "overworking" himself.
Mouse shows off all her shoes she got from a big sale, but Snake always gets half-off for she only needs one shoe.
