- — Master Chief to the Arbiter
Arbiter further searches for ways of coping with his deterioration. Meanwhile, Master Chief pursues the woman of his dreams, Emma -- who merely spoke to him for thirty seconds and sent him a clan invite -- and Eugene punishes a player unfamiliar to him who has been trolling matches and forums poorly, falsely claiming to be a member of Eugene's clan in the process.
Arbiter further searches for ways of coping with his deterioration by searching online on the computer whilst Master Chief anxiously awaits Emma's return onto Xbox Live, who merely spoke to him for thirty seconds and sent him a clan invite the night before. Emma appears online and Chief immediately goes into her server. Upon arriving, Chief manages to annoy all the other players in the server and Emma, after turning him down after his attempt to start a relationship, ultimately removes Chief from her server for his constantly rude behavior, leaving Chief no choice but to bring his Barbie Doll back from out of the bin apologising to her.
In another server, Eugene punishes a player unfamiliar to him who has been trolling matches and forums poorly, falsely claiming to be a member of Eugene's clan in the process. Once the player has been fragged by Tyler, Eugene receives a call from Dr. Harris who informs him that his sister is ill.
Arbiter goes into the bathroom for some painkillers and notices Chief sat in the bathroom drinking and upset. He asks Arbiter to drink with him to which Arbiter hesitantly agrees. They talk, and Chief comes to realisation that nobody likes him at all, Arbiter however comforts him and claims that he does. Chief smiles and Arbiter says that at least he has his Barbie Doll to which Chief replies is only 'plastic'.
Arbiter is shocked at Chief's realisation, and the episode ends in silence.

Reception for the episode has been mostly positive, with most fans citing the bathroom scene and the character development for all characters strong points. The episode has also received a share negative critisism, with fans citing on how the episode lacks comedy and the difficulty to keep up and understand the story of the season due to the waiting gaps between each episode.
- The scene where a trolling kid calls "The Gamer Pit" about a copy of Battletoads is a reference to another one Jon Graham's machinima series: One Life Remaining.
- This episode was originally written as one script lasting 40 pages, however due to the other episodes only lasting 15 to 20 pages, Jon decided to split the 40 page script into two different episodes, Massive Damage and Terminal.
- Despite being present in the apartment, Greg and Cortana make no appearances in this episode at all.
