The Arbiter returns home from a terrible day at university to find Master Chief pretending to be a pirate.
The episode opens with Master Chief pretending to be a pirate, using a roll of paper in an elastic band as a telescope. Chief then spots Arbiter and deems him "THE KRAKEN". The Arbiter then dismisses Chief and keeps walking on, eventually climbing into Jon's bed.
Chief (who is in Jon's new shelf), starts jumping up and down saying that he is a pirate and claiming "THE PIRATES LIFE IS THE LIFES 4 MEH, LOLOLOL ADN A BOTEL OF WIN!". Chief also claims that he has a telescope and that Jon's new shelf is his "BOATS" while calling Arbiter a little kid. Arbiter tells Chief he is a university student then threatens Chief and tells him to stop jumping up and down as to avoid damaging the new furniture.
Chief stops and asks why Arbiter is mad. Arbiter starts talking about his horrible day in which he forgot his bus pass and was only able to make it for the last 10 minutes of class to hand in his assignment that accounted for 50% of his mark, which he had forgotten and still cannot find. After the story Chief still keeps talking about how he is a pirate and how it's the life for him, and then invites Arbiter to join him. Arbiter says no, so Chief says that Arbiter can be "captin buttbeard" and that Arbiter can be the look-out. Arbiter takes the elastic band of the telescope and unravels the paper. Arbiter finds out that it is his bus pass! Arbiter is angry until Chief tells him that he didn't have his assignment so it didn't matter anyways, to which Arbiter somewhat agrees with.
Arbiter then asks why Chief's boat doesn't have a sail. Chief says it does, but it won't stay up. Chief then sees the fact that the sail he was using was actually Arbiter's assignment. Arbiter starts asking Chief if the sail was actually his essay to which Chief keeps nervously denying. Arbiter starts threatening Chief while walking over to Chief, who runs away. The episode ends when Chief opens the shelf drawer Arbiter smashes his head into it.
