Ted prepares to lie to 2,000 people, just because he likes a girl.
Lem and Phil are on the gun range demonstrating their new unbreakable dinnerware. Itâ€™s a bit heavy and Ted wants a lighter version. As Ted goes back to his office, Linda mentions she saw an ad about Veridian going green. She wants to work with the group doing the green project and help install a roof garden. Ted canâ€™t help but give in to her and says heâ€™ll clear it with Veronica. They hug but Linda insists itâ€™s platonic and she has a boyfriend.
Veronica explains to Ted that there is no such a program despite the commercial. He worries about what to tell Linda and finally lies to her. He says sheâ€™ll do the roof garden by herself and she canâ€™t tell anybody else. If it works out, Ted can sell it as a successful project. Now all he has to do is secretly move money around. Veronica notices. Ted has to think fast and makes up a fictional project name, Jabberwocky. When he suggests Veronica might know about it, she canâ€™t admit sheâ€™s out of the loop. She goes to her boss, Chet, who wonâ€™t admit heâ€™s out of the loop. They both agree they know what it is.
Phil and Lem have a new unbreakable plate ready. Unfortunately, it tends to spontaneous combust and Ted pulls the plug on the project. Phil and Lem are depressed.
The rumor is spreading about Jabberwocky and everyone wants to be in on it. They keep pestering Veronica, but Ted canâ€™t bring himself to tell her the truth given how happy Linda is. Linda offers him tea and water made from urine put through the water purification system. Ted tries to convince her that sheâ€™s too spread out working on the project, but Linda insists on continuing. Phil and Lem soon go to Ted and ask to be on the Jabberwocky project. Ted tries to tell them the truth but they donâ€™t believe him. Even Lemâ€™s mother knows about it. They think Tedâ€™s cutting them out and they figure they have to come up with a way to get back into Tedâ€™s good graces.
Ted decides to spread a counter rumor to stop Jabberwocky, warning itâ€™s a career-killer. Meanwhile, Lem and Phil go to Linda to ask her about how to get into Tedâ€™s good graces. They figure they can get in with him by helping Linda. They decide to help her with her project and she needs cheap lighting. They suggest bioluminescence.
Later in the elevator, Linda tries to secretly thank Veronica, who has no idea what sheâ€™s being thanked for. Veronica asks her for details about Jabberwocky but they involve Ted drinking urine and Veronica is still confused. She goes through Tedâ€™s files and when he catches her, she admits she doesnâ€™t know what Jabberwocky is. He finally tells her the truth and Veronica explains that theyâ€™re presenting Jabberwocky to the entire division. Now they have two hours to come up with a product that no one has ever seen before.
Linda and Ted come out on stage and try to sell Jabberwocky in very general terms. Everyone applauds the presentation and lacking a product doesnâ€™t slow them down. Finally they tell them itâ€™ll be coming in three years and leave it at that. Naturally, nobody wants to admit theyâ€™re out of the loop. Ted promises never to lie to Veronica again
Ted goes up to the roof garden and tells Linda the truth, and insists that it wasnâ€™t pointless and she made a difference. Linda is happy that he stole for her and they start to hug. Phil and Lem arrive and light up the rooftop with bioluminescence, merging firefly DNA with the flowers. Ted is impressed, figuring he can sell it to the company. Unfortunately, a few squirrels with firefly DNA have got loose. A few weeks later, they get tomatoes. The squirrels go insane. And Veridian sends the company to Japan, where theyâ€™re still trying to figure out what it is.
