Tim is reading a book and Moby brings in a robot. Tim says he hopes it's not another Jazz-bot. He says the last one played a trumpet solo that went on for six months. When the robot raps, he finds out it's a Rap-bot. Tim mentions a introdution about hip-hop and rap. Tim includes things like DJs, scratching records and breakdancing. He asks  the Rap-bot what it's favorite rapper is. The Rap-bot holds up a CD with Kenny G on it. Tim yells "This isn't a Rap-bot at all! It's a Jazz-bot in disguise!" and he covers his ears when, yet again, Jazz-bot strikes!
