Later at the diner, The Electric Company tells Deek not to be worried because they're here to help him. The team get a call from a tech support guy, but Manny uses another gadget to mess up the voice. Jessica rewinds the audio and Lisa arranges what the tech guy had said. It said 'Hit escape and jump into the screen'. As soon a Deek prepares to jump back, Manny uses his gadget to control Deek's movements. Deek leaves the diner with Hector in pursuit. Hector and his gang find out Deek is lost, but Shock points them to the billboard. Deek has been but on the billboard by Manny because he doesn't want Hector to win the game.
