SMG4: BENDY and the SPAGHETTI MACHINE is the thirty-eighth episode of Season 7 and the three hundred and sixty-second overall to be uploaded by SMG4.
This episode was aired on September 23, 2017.
Meanwhile at Fresh Spaghetti Tubbie, Swag and Chris noticed that there was no more spaghetti coming out of the production line. Chris thought Swag just shoved his head in there again, but Swag denied it, stating that the spaghetti machine must be broken. Chris realized that the only way to get the machine working again was to go down and fix it, but Swag refused to go because of a rumor of a mutated spaghetti living underground. Chris told Swag that if that was the case, they needed someone dumb enough to go down there as a sacrifice. Mario then appeared outside and started protesting for spaghetti, a perfect candidate for the job.
They let Mario in and led him to the entrance of the basement. While explaining what Mario had to do, upon mentioning how there was spaghetti in said basement, Mario just jumped right through the hole without getting full instructions first. He landed in the basement, which no surprise looked exactly like the setting from Chapter 1 of BATIM. As he continued to search for the machine, Mario found a cardboard Bendy and mistakenly called him Mickey Mouse. He was about to continue his search when he accidentally activated a projector which puts on an advertisement of the Fresh Spaghetti Tubbie factory with Bendy. When the advertisement finished, Mario gave an applause but was shocked to see that the cardboard Bendy that was right behind him suddenly disappeared. He looked around and saw the cardboard cutout peeked at him from a door before running away.
Mario chased after the cardboard Bendy, but the cutout was way too fast. Mario then arrived at an intersection, with the cardboard Bendy peeking at him again from one of the directions. Every time he turned to look at him, Bendy would always hide behind the corner, so Mario used this to an advantage and started playing red light green light. Mario then cheated and started saying red light and green light even faster, causing the cardboard to rage, quit, and explode.
Mario celebrated his victory when all of a sudden he realized that he actually made it to the spaghetti machine itself. Mario attempted to turn the machine on by saying "Open sesame", which obviously failed. Just as he's about to leave, Mario tripped on a tape recorder and turned it on out of curiosity. The tape then gave Mario instructions to go and find a dog, a bucket of KFC chicken, and an old man to put on their pedestals in order to get the machine going. Mario had at that moment lost all hope due to the fact that none of those items were nearby. As he began to leave again, the real Bendy came through and door and started doing a dance while chasing him.
Mario attempted to run away, but Bendy then climbed onto a shelf and knocked a bowling ball, a fire hydrant, King Harkinian, a Master Sword, and a piano onto him. Mario got crushed flat but still managed to escape into another room and lock the door. As Mario attempted to hide and hoped Bendy went away, he tripped on another tape recorder which just spurted out random gibberish. He tried to get the tape to stop, but he was too late as Bendy broke through the wall and continued to chase him.
Mario continues to run when he encountered a room with the corpse of Boris the wolf. Seeing the open chest, Mario used it to his advantage and hid inside it while Bendy ran across the hall searching for him. As Mario was about to leave, Goofy came by the room and saw the dead corpse thinking it was his dead mother. Goofy grabbed the corpse mourning the loss of his mom, but Mario then jumped out of the corpse's chest, scaring Goofy. The sight of a literal chest-burster shocked Goofy, causing him to die from cardiac arrest. With Goofy dead, Mario got the idea to use his corpse on the pedestal for the dog.
With more hope than before, Mario continued to walk through the basement searching for the items when he came upon the food storage room. Feeling extreme joy, Mario went into the room and searched a crate thoroughly in the hopes of getting something to eat. However, Bendy popped out of the crate, scaring him. Out of fear, Mario splashed Bendy with some nearby ink, transforming Bendy into an Ink Demon and enraging him but only because he made a mess out of the room. He retaliated by throwing Minecraft chicken at him. While most of the chicken beat Mario up, some ended up on a stove, getting cooked and transformed into the bucket of KFC chicken needed for the machine. Just as Mario placed the bucket on the middle pedestal and begin his search for an old man, a shadowy figure kidnapped him.
A while later, Mario woke up to find himself tied to a chair. A mysterious figure came up to him. He introduced himself as a worker from the 1920s who was trapped in the basement, falsely believing that a sacrifice must be made to the Flying Spaghetti Monster so he could escape from the basement. When Mario pointed out how there was a hole one could simply jump up to, the person refused to believe it, causing Mario to pummel down the man while he was distracted. This caused the man to try and murder him, resulting in Mario in evading the attacks and causing them to go into a wild chase.
As Mario dodged the man's attacks, allowing him to escape, he came across a flight of stairs back up. He tried climbing it up before finding it hopeless. Just as the man was about to sacrifice Mario, he became defiant and insulted him, enraging him. Before he could attack, a pan was throwing, knocking him down. Turned out that Bendy threw that pan. Mario knew Bendy was a friend but ??? wasn't ready to let go. He summoned mini versions of the Flying Spaghetti Monster to go after both of them. While Bendy ran, Mario got ready to eat them (although he was pulled away by Bendy).
At the top of the stairs, Mario insisted on eating them despite Bendy's protests. As the monsters got closer to them, Mario opened his mouth wide, eating all of them, much to Bendy's surprise. 30 minutes later, ??? was wondering what took his creation so long in killing them, just to see that Mario became very big from eating all the spaghetti. Bendy used that chance to push Mario down the stairs, squashing ???. Using ???'s corpse, they put it on the third pedestal, finally allowing the machine to work again. Mario then pulled the lever down to fast (but broke it, meaning it was stuck on the fast setting).
While Bendy was naturally worried that the basement was going to be flooded with spaghetti, Mario was jolly to the point of living there forever, just to get swept away into a room where Bendy barely managed to close the door. However, the walls could not hold the huge spaghetti pile forever and they needed to escape fast. They looked around when Mario saw the hole he fell through. He tried to jump at it but it was too far out of reach. Bendy then looked at the increasingly cracked wall and decided that Mario should leave first. He threw him up the hole, much to Mario's shock as the last he saw of Bendy was him shaking his hand goodbye at him before he got crushed to death by the incoming spaghetti wave.
Back at the conveyor belt section, Swag was messing around praying for the spaghetti to come out much to Chris's annoyance when Mario was thrown up at the same time spaghetti was shot out of the said belt. Swag was surprised said prayers worked and claimed he was a god. As Mario asked if he could have spaghetti, Swag said no as he claimed he did all the hard work Mario actually did. Feeling outraged, Mario threw Swag down the hole, where he would get revenge on him. He then realized ??? (somehow alive) next to him. He declared he was a god to him, with the episode ending with ???, thinking Swag was indeed a god, praised him for it.
- Cardboard Bendy explodes after Mario plays red light/green light.
- Goofy dies after Mario scares him.
- Bendy is crushed by spaghetti wave.
- R64: The Spaghettipocalypse: The resurrection of the Flying Spaghetti Monster happens in this episode.
- A running gag throughout the blooper involved Mario calling Bendy "Mickey Mouse." This may have something to do with the fact that Bendy himself is based on the actual character. Incidentally, Goofy from Disney mistaking the mutilated Boris the Wolf clone as his mother is a reference to how Boris himself is based on the actual character.
- Bendy and the Ink Machine: The episode's name and plot is a reference to the game. However, unlike in the game, Bendy was only trying to help Mario escape (albeit initially, he looked like he wanted to murder him). Also, although Sammy Lawrence does not appear in the episode, ??? has a very similar motive to him in that they wanted to sacrifice the main protagonist (the player in the base game and Mario in the episode). However, Sammy is to return from being an ink creature back to normal and ??? wanting to summon Flying Spaghetti Monster back from the dead.
