Just One of the Gamers is the fifth episode of the first season of Code Monkeys. It is preceded by Super Prison Breakout and followed by The Take Over.

PlotEdit

Mary is pitching her latest game, Space Marines. Larrity likes it, but thinks it is Dave's game. As Mary is sobbing in her office about how she is held down by the Man, Benny appears, explaining how he can relate to Mary's problem. After reciting a story that one of his blood relatives told him, Mary goes to the mall and buys a wardrobe for men, and disguises herself as "Mitch."

Mitch enters GameAVision and asks Clare where to find Larrity. After Clare remarks that Mitch is not flirting, he explains that he respects Clare because she is a lady, which causes Clare to fall in love with him. Later on, in the pitch room, Mitch enters and announces himself as Mary's brother, that Mary is dead, and that he would like to take her place. Larrity hires him with only a short lecture about how he got as rich as he did.

Mitch encounters several problems trying to blend in with the men, but usually comes up with a witty explanation to cover up the fact that he is actually Mary in disguise. However, one who is not fooled is Dave, who vows to find out what is up with Mitch after he steals "his" game of Space Marines. After interrogating Benny and bribing him with a hundred dollars and a pack of cigarettes, Benny tells him that Mitch is actually Mary in disguise. Dave agrees to keep Mary's secret, but has already told Todd.

Despite the fact that no one believes Todd, when Mitch is accepting his promotion to heir of GameAVision, Jerry (who had been crushing on Mitch all episode) jumps on stage and makes out with Mitch, causing his wig to fall off and reveal Mary. Mary gives what she hopes to be an "I told you so" speech, but as she finishes, Dave and Mr. Larrity insist that she flash the staff. After refusing, Larrity attempts to suspend her for a month without pay, but gives her her job back with a raise after she reveals dark truths about the staff that she learned while she was under cover as Mitch.

In the final scene, Dave tells Jerry that Mary was impressed by his courage the other day, and wants to make out with him in the closet. However, the one in the closet ends up being Clarence, effectively "proving" that Jerry is, indeed, gay.

NotesEdit

  • It is revealed that Clarence found out he was gay by kissing a man named Stan.
  • This episode shows that Mary does have some good ideas, but is merely not taken seriously due to her gender.
  • It is unknown why Mary took no legal action against GameAVision, as she clearly had a sexual discrimination and prid pro quo sexual harrassment case against GameAVision.
