Gobo meets BJ in the UK version of the episode.

Gobo goes into Outer Space and discovers that Doc can't see him. Cantus gives Gobo the job of finding the Honk of Honks, which will begin the performance of the Song of Songs.

At the same time, Doc sends Sprocket to comfort Ned Shimmelfinney when his asthma gets worse.
