Beast Boy tells Cyborg that he obviously knows that Cyborg wants pie.
They later go to Mother Mae-Eye's Pie Shop and Raven tells that she hears that Mother Mae-Eye cooks people into her pies. Causing Raven and the Titans to laugh. Beast Boy tells Cyborg that he has the best birthday gift for him. Cyborg tells him that he hopes that is a new video game, which Beast Boy could not afford. Starfire then tells Cyborg that she would be organizing Cyborg's birthday party. Beast Boy is in front of a store window, where the video game that Cyborg wants is on display. He starts hallucinating about Cyborg, and the hallucination convinces him to get a job, so he could afford the game Cyborg wants.
He was looking for jobs everywhere on Jump City, being fired from each one. Not being able to find a job, Beast Boy is very sad at the gang's next trip to the pie shop. Starfire tells the gang that she would be holding Cyborg's party at Mother Mae-Eye's pie shop. Beast Boy takes a job at Mother Mae-Eye's pie shop to buy the game for Cyborg, but his job may cause him to miss the party and lose his friend. At the birthday party Cyborg makes a toast criticizing Beast Boy and then he starts throwing the pies on the floor. Beast Boy tired of cleaning up, starts fighting with Cyborg. Then Mother Mae-Eye hypnotizes Robin, Raven and Starfire, making them go to the kitchen, throwing them into the stove. After fighting for a while, Beast Boy and Cyborg make up after Beast Boy shows him his picture.They start eating pies that look like Robin, Starfire and Raven.
