As gigantic, brown insect-like aliens are attacking Earth, a group of scientists watch the carnage from the building where they have taken refuge. One scientist panics, asking what they are going to do. Another suggests that they evacuate all humans and "live among the stars". The other scientist says there isn't enough time for doing that. Suddenly, an old lady scientist clears her throat, then directs their attention toward a giant, cylindrical containment tank, containing one of the aliens within. As the scientist prepares to "make a demonstration," she extracts a pepper shaker from her pocket, prompting one of the younger scientists to incorrectly predict that she will destroy the captive beast with pepper. After staring disapprovingly at the other scientist, she inhales the pepper and sneezes into a pipe that leads into the alien's tube. The various nasal fluids splatter the monster, causing it to puff up until it explodes. The scientist concludes, "The aliens are allergic to germs!".
In the movie's denouement, the Earth army marches out grandly to confront the alien armada, sniff up pepper and sneezed in unison all over the aliens, causing them to all swell up and explode, accompanied by happy, triumphant music plays Then, it says "Hooray for Earth" in red text on the screen and then revealed Zim and GIR had been watching it as a movie all along. Also, a "The End" screen shows up. GIR commented the Hooray for Earth by saying exactly what it says. Zim commented to GIR about that Earth is the enemy. Nothing else relevant to the movie is then seen in the episode.
