While about his usual business around the Axiom, John presumed that WALL•E was a waiter bot to take away his drink. Unfortunately, WALL•E accidentally made him fall over and steward bots told him to wait for assistance. WALL•E helped him before following the MVR-A cartbot carrying EVE.
While at the windows, John noticed WALL•E space dancing with EVE. The other human next to him, Mary, also met the robot. Upon seeing each other, they quickly fell in love. They playfully splash in the pool, against the objections of a robotic life guard.
When AUTO tipped the ship over, John and Mary saved a bunch of babies. The ship soon landed on Earth, with its inhabitants finally arriving home.
- John was the first Pixar character that John Ratzenberger portrayed who shared his first name.
