Phong tasked CGI and it's two top agents to investigate a rash of kidnappings on Level 31, the most recent being Al's Waiter and Dot Matrix. Data Nully and Fax Modem went to Al's Wait & Eat to ask questions about the disappearances. They ran into Bob there, who was also looking for Dot. They discussed the missing people and Agent Modem revealed that he thought a Web Creature was responsible, thinking it might be Mouse, since she has fangs. Agent Nully thought his theories were paranoid, but possibly correct.

The pair were proven correct, that it was a Web Creature, but it wasn't Mouse. They used flash lights to control the creature, since they can't stand strong light, but it eventually escaped and formed a portal to the Web.

Agent Modem also had a theory that there is no User, that it is mass psychosis produced by the Guardians to control the populace. He also believes the Game Cubes are sent by the Guardians to promote the User myth. (Trust No One)
