Snack Break is the second Ben 10 short.


Ben's attempt to retrieve a snack from a vending machine backfires in a big way.[CN 1]


Snack Break (19)

Grey Matter

Ben and Gwen want something from the vending machine. When Ben's snack doesn't come out of it, he plans to retrieve it as Grey Matter. Ben transforms into Grey Matter and retrieves his snack. Gwen finds a sock full of money. In the process, however, the Omnitrix times out while Grey Matter is still inside, and he reverts back into Ben. When Gwen comes out, she finds Ben stuck in the vending machine. She finds it silly, but Ben is really mad about this. Ben's snack bar falls out and Gwen takes it, angering Ben even more. Gwen goes into the Rustbucket, leaving Ben in the machine.

(Gwen arrives to the vending machine.)
Gwen: Well, well, well... What do we have here?
Ben: Gwen! A little help here?
(Ben is squished in between the machine glass.)
Gwen: I don't know... 75 cents for a doofus is pretty expensive.
Ben: Ugh, stop fooling around Gwen, and get me outta here!
(As Ben struggles, his candy falls down to the collection slot, with Gwen picking it up and eating it.)
Gwen: Mm... and 75 cents to spare.
Ben: Hey! That's mine!
Gwen: Don't worry Ben. I'm sure someone will buy you.
Ben: Don't go away- Gwen. Come back here! Gwen? Gweeeen!
