(The episode immediately opens in Eric's bedroom, which, to say the least, is a pigsty)

Eric: I'm sorry, but I'm not doing it.

Paul: Yes you are! I want you to clean your room! I don't want you to live in a dump like this! Look at this, with all of your clothes piled up, your room's already a city filled with TALKING CLOTHES!

Eric: Aw, c'mon, I'm sure my room can't be THAT messy.

(Eric glances aside, and we see how life in Eric's room is like for all of his clothes. A piece of underwear can be seen holding hands with its girlfriend [which is a pair of khakis], and we see other events, including a pair of jeans hailing a taxi, t-shirts waiting in line for a movie, and a jacket asking for some spare change)

Eric: Ok, ok, I guess it's kinda messy, but (extends his arm to hold Edward's neck around his arm) Edward and I will have it clean in a jiffy!

Paul: Oh, "kinda" is an understatement! Your toys are everywhere too!

Eric: I said we'll have it clean in a jiffy!

Paul: Alright. Well, maybe once I see this room is clean, I'll get you a new toy. (chuckles and walks out of the room)

Edward: Well, if we're gonna clean this dump, there's only one way to do it.

(The camera cuts to the brothers changing into hazmat suits in Edward's laboratory)

Edward: When was the last time you cleaned your room?

Eric: I don't recall a "last time".

(They enter Eric's bedroom. Both of them are holding shovels in their hands, while Edward is also carrying a basket to put the clothes in)

Edward: To be honest with you, Eric, I concur with Dad. I don't understand how you can feel congenial in such unsanitary conditions.

Eric: Oh, it's no big deal. What's the point in cleaning your bedroom if it's gonna get dirty again later on anyway?

Edward: Well-

Eric: Now let's do this thing.

(Edward sighs, and he starts shoveling a building made of dirty clothes. Every clothes in there screams and starts to evacuate. The clothes pile up in the basket)

Eric: (starts to get worried about his surroundings) It's been so long since I cleaned this place. (shouts) Hey Edward! What color was my carpet again?

Edward: I forgot.
