Synopsis:
Three Joes are off to California on furlough to surf when they run across three of the Dreadnoks taking a joy ride on Zartan's new holographic motorcycle, which is damaged in the scuffle. Zartan later picks up two of them in a transport chopper holographically disguised as a bus, with Buzzer captured by the Joes, after being told of their joyride by Bludd and the Baroness. The old lady Zartan picks up as a passenger mysteriously disappears after the chopper lands back in Springfield before she can be killed, but it was a disguise as the disguise was discarded.
