Oscar heads over to Hooper's where he pours coffee grinds and olive oil all over Alan's nice clean counter. He observes the worms in the mess, and marks down what he sees on his chart. He succeeds in annoying Alan, and concludes that most of the worms like to squirm in the olive oil. The second question to investigate is "What stinky smell will make people scram?" He finds Gina and Leela playing cards and tries to make them scram with garlic, an old piece of cheese, and finally his own stinky socks. He observes, records and annoys them both as they finally flee holding their noses from his smelly socks. Oscar's final question is "What noise is loud enough to wake up Luis and Maria?"
