The episode begins at the house where Gumball is watching TV and eating snacks. Suddenly Penny calls him on his home phone and asks him whether he is coming to their date or not. Gumball is confused by this, as he thought they were going to meet at dinner, not knowing that Penny was actually referring to a new restaurant called "Dinner" at the mall. Gumball panics and gets himself ready as quick as possible, making excuses to Penny on the phone without much progress. He tells her that he will be there in ten minutes before hanging up.
