Guess What's Coming to Dinner? is the 17th episode from season 5 of The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy.


Billy's parent go away for a week on their second honeymoon, but Billy reminds his parents that they had invited Principal Goodvibes over for dinner so he could recommend Billy for the prestigious Rollington Academy for the Gifted. Harold and Gladys forgot about this, and at first, Harold suggests that Billy robot replicas of him and Gladys, but Billy had tried that before and it failed. Then Harold suggests that Billy have Eris and Hoss Delgado impersonate him and Gladys until they get back.

During the dinner, things become very chaotic (thanks to Eris and Hoss' actions) and at one point, Eris summons "giant alien zombie lobsters" for their dinner, and Billy's house gets destroyed in the process---although they do manage to defeat the lobsters. At first, Goodvibes refuses to recommend Billy for Rollington Academy, but after Hoss threatens him, he does.

Naturally, Billy's really excited about getting accepted into Rollington Academy, but he later realizes that Rollington Academy is actually a military school. The ending of the episode shows various clips of Billy's time at the military school.
