|“||There's a coffee bean shortage in Big City, but a free shipment comes in tonight. If you and Cricket can acquire a sack of coffee beans for Big Coffee, then Cricket's debt to the cafe will be cleared.||”|
Coffee Quest is the 35th episode of Big City Greens. However, it is the 39th episode in chronological order.
When Big City faces a coffee bean shortage, Cricket and Gloria's boss, Ms. Cho, challenges them to retrieve one of a few remaining sacks of coffee.
Cricket and Gloria once again have another spat at Big Coffee with both expressing the desire for Cricket to pay off his debt at the cafe so that he can finally be free. Ms. Cho stops by to "inform" the two that there is a coffee bean shortage in Big City, but that a shipment will be arriving at Big City Docks. If they can acquire one bag, then Cricket's debt will be paid off. The two excitedly leave in Gloria's car, but once again get into another tussle. Gloria insists that Cricket act like a normal person in Big City when he implores her to take the Silver Way Bridge, which she adds would be crowded at this time of day.
They make it to the docks, but as Cricket snags a bag of coffee beans, he is intercepted by Chip Whistler (with indestructible bonded polymer for his fixed broken teeth) and his Wholesome Foods employees. Gloria spin kicks Chip away as she and Cricket escape with the coffee beans. They enter a car chase that ends with Cricket and Gloria crashing and escaping to the latter's dingy apartment.
Cricket is surprised to learn that Gloria hails from the suburbs and that she always dreamed of being from Big City or Paris and has resented Cricket because he fits in naturally. Cricket cheers her up by admitting that he could have sworn she was from Big City.
Chip catches up to them, forcing Cricket to call Tilly to come and assist them. Cricket and Gloria escape on a box sled pulled by a goat and sheep with Chip and his goons in hot pursuit. Gloria and Chip fight over the bag of beans with the latter trying to convince the former to join him, but she refuses and gets the bag back; breaking his teeth in the process again. Cricket and Gloria escape through the Silver Way Bridge with Chip vowing revenge.
Ms. Cho gives Cricket a certificate stating that his debt is paid in full, but he and Gloria feel sad as he starts to depart meaning they will miss each other. Gloria destroys the restaurant on purpose and puts the blame on Cricket to get him to stay work again and now he has to complete a new debt that could last forever, much to the two's joy and then regret.
