Oscar presents his mother his stinky fish, which there are 6 of. Bunny 1 ups with by saying she has a dozen fish (twice as many). She counts each 1 as she tosses them out of her bag. The last of which is in her cosmetics case & knocks Oscar over. Oscar & Bunny argue over who's fish are better, while their mother states that they both stink. Oscar's next gift is his mother's favorite perfume, Aude de Skunk #9. Bunny once again puts his gift to shame by giving the same scent, but using a real skunk. They argue again over who's was the worst gift, while their mother think they're both bad. Mrs. Grouch is ready for more gifts, but Oscar has something else in mind - a trip to the dump, as they just got a fresh load of trash! He snidely asks what Bunny planned; she says she planned nothing, which makes her mother very angry. Bunny gloats, while Mrs. Grouch insists they go to the dump, letting them argue on the way.

While Oscar struggles to get The Sloppy Jalopy to start, Chris & the kids pass by & wish Mrs. Grouch a Happy Grouchy Mother's Day.

SCENE cont'd
Bunny & Mrs. Grouch are packed up & ready to leave. Oscar stops them & shows them his final gift. Gordon, Bob & Chris are dressed in rotten attire & have adopted Grouchy attitudes (or as Grouchy as they can provide). They then sing an a capella song to Mrs. Grouch about Grouchy Mother's Day. She is so mad at the sweetness of his gift, saying he's ruined Grouchy Mother's Day, which means it was a great success! Oscar rubs it in Bunny's face, who tries to say she ruined the day too. Mrs. Grouch says they both ruined her day, saying not every Mom is lucky enough to have 2 such rotten kids. Their plane arrives & they are launched to it through Oscar's trash can. Oscar wants to thank his neighbors for helping, but then states he's a Grouch & doesn't thank anyone. Chris & Gordon aren't sure what happened, but Bob goes off thinking they still enjoyed the song.

Mrs. Sparklenose helps Abby, Blögg & Gonnigan recycle bottles they brought from home. 1 of Abby's bottles it dusty, so she rubs it & out comes Gene the Genie. He feels cramped inside & refuses to go back in. The bottle, not wanting to be empty, begins hopping around, looking for someone to suck inside. The bottle entraps Mrs. Sparklenose inside, while Gene plans to spend 1001 nights in Vegas. Abby reminds Gene he needs to grant 3 wishes. Abby wishes for Mrs. Sparklenose to get out of the bottle, with Niblet then taken in his place. Gonnigan rephrases the wish & asks for not 1 of them to be inside, so he poofs them all inside, thus there is not 1. They call on Spot, who shows them a film on "all" & "none". They wish for them all of them to get out & none of them would be inside. The bottle looks for some to capture & it gets Mrs. Sparklenose again. Gene refuses to switch places w/ her, not wanting to be in a small space again. They twinkle think & get an idea to magically recycle his bottle with other 1s to make a larger 1, complete w/ sliding glass doors so he can leave whenever he feels.

Bert & Ernie's Great Adventures
Ernie & Bert are drifting in their floatie in the Hawaiian sea, when they see they've gone too far from land & paddle to a nearby island. Once they reach the land, a local crab pierces their floatie, ruining their chances of escaping. Bert tries to write "SOS" for a passing plane, but it doesn't notice while doing a trick. They spot a passing boat & wave some palm leaves to get their attention, but all the passengers just think they’re saying high. The crab digs up a bottle for them to put a note in. Ernie happens to have a postcard & pencil w/ him to write a note. Ernie tosses it into the sea, but it's bounced back toward them (& hits Bert in the hit). They see it’s a dolphin, which they are able to ride back to land.
