P.I.G. Arc

"Lady Krillers"[2] is the ninth episode of the second season of Milo Murphy's Law.

Tobias Trollhammer is devastated when he learns the directors for the latest Krillhunter movie aren't looking to rehire him in favor of women, as he's very dependent on his job. Milo convinces him to dress up as a woman in order to save his life. Meanwhile Cavendish and Dakota accidentally pick up an alien lifeform as they're tasked to gather trash.

Plot

Production for the next Krillhunter movie is in Danville and Milo is excited. However, he becomes alarmed when he learns that Tobias Trollhammer is not going to be in it as the reboot has a female lead. Tobias is upset because he greatly depends on the franchise and he knows regardless of how it would turn out he would be out of a job and lose his house (since he spent most of his money on krill-themed art). Milo has an idea and he tells the others to follow him. Back at his house, Milo, Zack, and Melissa dress Tobias as a woman so he can still star in the movie, introducing him as Milo's "Aunt Tobina."

Meanwhile in the desert, Cavendish and Dakota are cleaning up trash when Dakota unknowingly puts an alien in his bag. They realize what has happened and they try to catch it. However, Cavendish keeps getting trampled by bison. They eventually grab hold of the bag, but it drags them to town.

Back at the audition, things are going well until Cavendish and Dakota bump into Tobias and knock off his wig. The casting party is stunned but after Tobias makes a statement saying that he is the franchise, they cast him as the villain. Before the Director leaves, Milo asks him if it will confuse people that Tobias is now the villain, having been the hero for so long, but the director reveals that they don't care about things like that.

Cavendish and Dakota finally stop when the alien gets tired, however, it gets abducted and they lose it. Both Cavendish and Tobias are trampled by the bison.

At the end of the episode, a boy named Billy Bison points out his various "appearances" in the episode, noting he kind of took it over. He then claims to be a descendant of Frederick Bison, the originator of "Bison’s Law," which states that "anything that can go bison, will go bison" (a parody of Murphy's Law, but limited to bison attacks). He is is then chased off by bison, noting that "it's my world and we're all bison in it."
