Parent Teacher Night is approaching and Zim is confronted with the fact that he has no parents, since Irkens are cloned in a gene bank. He makes use of his robot parent decoys to attempt to fool the students, teachers, and parents. However, Zim knows that the Roboparents aren’t ready for such a job. Zim puts GIR in charge of controlling the parental dvd that is to be uploaded into the Roboparents, but GIR changes the dvd over to public broadcasting. Some of the programs display proper human communication, while others display idiotic themes, such as “Poke of Doom”. Dib, who brings his dad’s communication device, tries to prove that Zim is an alien. The robotic parent decoys malfunction and cause chaos during the meeting, but nobody discovers that they aren’t human or that Zim is an extraterrestrial.
