The movie takes place a day before Clerks (April 14th, 1994). T.S. Quint ( Jeremy London) is preparing for a trip to Universal Studios Florida with his girlfriend Brandi Svenning ( Claire Forlani), during which he plans to propose to her; however, the two have an argument and break up after Brandi tells him she can't go because she's volunteered to fill in as a contestant on Truth or Date, her dad's "cheesy Dating Game rip-off" TV show.
T.S. turns to his comic book-loving best friend Brodie Bruce ( Jason Lee), who has also broken up with his girlfriend, Rene Mosier ( Shannen Doherty), and Brodie suggests the two might find solace at the local mall.
Brodie and T.S. discover Truth or Date is shooting at the same mall, and ask local troublemaking drug dealers Jay and Silent Bob ( Jason Mewes and Kevin Smith) to destroy the show's stage (which they admit they were going to do anyway), a task for which they devise elaborate but ultimately unsuccessful plans. Brodie also finds out Rene is being pursued by his nemesis Shannon Hamilton ( Ben Affleck), a clothing store manager who hates Brodie because of his "lack of a shopping agenda," and has nefarious plans for Rene, intending to seduce her and then have sex 'in a very uncomfortable place' with her. A running joke is that this is interpreted as the 'back of a Volkswagen' rather than the anal sex he intends.
Between seeking romantic advice from Stan Lee and debating such topics as the sexual proclivities of comic-book characters and the status of a cookie stand located outside the official food court, the two run into various acquaintances, including a sex researcher who happens to be a minor, and a guy who spends all day trying to see the hidden image of a sailboat in a Magic Eye poster.
They also run afoul of Brandi's father, Jared Svenning ( Michael Rooker), who has the mall security guard La Fours ( Sven-Ole Thorsen) plant marijuana on their persons so they can be arrested. But they scape with the wonderful help of Silent Bob.
Temporarily banned from the mall T.S. and Brodie go to the local flea market where they pay a psychic to help them out with their trouble who is surprisingly helpful thanks to her three nipple technique
In addition to helping them escape, Jay and Silent Bob get two of the game show contestants stoned, allowing T.S. and Brodie to replace them on Truth or Date and woo back their respective exes.
And also, this happens.
