256Pi's The Rosen Family Chronicles Wiki
Beneath The Café
Episode # 16 (Season 2, Ep. 2)
Airdate March 9, 2014
Length 3:57

The sixteenth episode in The Rosen Family Chronicles, also 256Pi's entry for the Clean Rosen Collab 2. Watch it here.


The episode begins with Michael announcing live on Don't Be Cheeky that he and Brian are going on vacation. Brian is surprised by this news as he had no idea Michael was making this plan, although Michael admits he hasn't planned much (as he has not yet decided on a destination).

After the show stops airing, Michael and Brian go over to Chocolate Swiss Cafe to discuss where their vacation will take place. After the offscreen waiter takes their orders, Michael orders a Hollywood and Brian orders one of those little chocolate swiss rolls. After a bit of offscreen discussion on tulips and cheese a possible destination, the food is served. Brian comments on the size of Michael's Hollywood, but Michael points out that Brian's chocolate swiss roll is quite oversized as well. Michael takes one scoop of his Hollywood, but then is suddenly incapacitated and stares blankly into space. Brian questions the contents of his chocolate sauce, and smells it, only to identify it as drug things (presumably of the same variety found in this episode).

Michael assures those wondering why a drug reference might be in a clean collab entry that the drug things were more like sleeping pills than marijuana.

Michael sits in a drug-induced haze, before being woken up to the sound of a toothbrush breaking (by Older Rosen, who presumably was invited over by Brian to the cafe to awaken Michael, much like he did earlier). Michael does not recognize his surroundings at first, and asks Older Rosen where they are (although he is of no help as usual). Michael realizes that he is in the cafe's basement, and is about to leave when the "waiter" speaks up. He says he likes toenails that Michael isn't dead like he wanted. Michael wonders who the "waiter" is, and he introduces himself as The Pocketfoogle. Michael laughs at his silly name, but this makes The Pocketfoogle angry, grow several feet taller and attack him. Michael attempts to fend him off with his rolled-up comic to no avail, but then Older Rosen rushes in to distract him before repeatedly punching him. The Pocketfoogle returns to his small form and laments that he was unable to kill Michael. Michael dashes upstairs to his brother (faster than an electronic logic), and they return home.
