"Tech Support" is the 4th episode in Season 8 of Beavis and Butt-head. It is the overall 204th episode.


While looking for an abandoned drive-in, Beavis and Butt-head stumble upon a new tech-support building opening up, apparently having recently taken over the drive-in. There, they are mistaken for workers, and are stationed next to expert Hamid. Sitting at their new computer stations, the idiots decide to look for internet porn.

Hamid is having difficulty keeping up with customer's demands, while Beavis and Butt-Head are either misundersanding them, ignoring them, or just not knowing what they're talking about at all, involving Butt-Head putting a transfered customer on hold, and asking another customer to shut up and how to get their own computer to show pornography. Beavis cheaply mimicks Hamid's sayings and using them completely out of context of what the customer is saying.

Realizing what they're doing, Hamid goes to report them to their manager, however, he is only impressed with what the boys are doing, and advises Hamid to be like them, explaining that while they want to help the customers, they have to be short and brief, as being on the lines for too long will cut their profits, losing business, and their customers. Hamid attempts to mimick the duo and they start to note his improvement of understanding their ways.

When Hamid gets a line of an emergency call at a local power plant, at Butt-Head's advice, he tells him to type in "ICUP," (I see you pee). This only worsens their emergency, and Butt-Head tells him to "butt plug" the computer. Hamid mishears him and says to unplug the computer. Butt-Head then distracts Hamid as he discovers internet porn, ignoring the man exclaiming on the line that the result of his instruction led to a citywide power drain, turning off the computer and their porn. Believing the computer is broken, the boys decide to leave taking the computers with them. Hamid tries to act like them again before they leave, but they tell him that they aren't working out. Hamid comments that he's trying, and Beavis only repeats Hamid's repeated line saying "I understand your frustration." As they walk out, Ross and Harlem drive by and notice them with the computers. Believing they're stealing from there, they decide to break in and raid the place by robbing the computers before they're beaten to it.


  • This episode marks the official return of Ross and Harlem.
