"Doctor Shamaal Buckhargee, M.D., licensed pilot" calls the tower and they ask him to turn on his transponder at which point the controller room freaks out because another plane magically appears on the radar. A radar can always detect a plane in the air so the controller would have seen the plane no matter. The transponder merely provides additional information for the radar computer system to display on the screen, such as altitude. So turning a transponder on or off cannot affect the visibility of a plane on a radar screen.
