Harvey kissing Bubbie

Harvey kiss her on the cheek. He ends up kissing her on the lips and she kisses him back. The suction of the kiss blows Flapjack and K'nuckles into Harvey's mouth and Harvey tells Bubbie that he has to go. Bubbie tries to talk to Flapjack and K'nuckles, thinking that they are still with her and believes the two are simply just giving her the silent treatment.

Cutting back to Bubbie, she asks the two if they think Harvey was lying about having a cat; after getting no response, she gets angry and uses her tongue to track them down and finds out that they're not there. The scene cuts back to Laundry Island, where Flapjack and K'nuckles are washing underwear. Flapjack is torn up by the memory of Bubbie and folds the underwear into a heart. K'nuckles kicks the undie heart into the ocean and tells Flapjack to bring the basket of underwear out to the docks.

Bubbie is afraid to confront the much larger Harvey until she finds the pair of Flapjack's undie hearts, giving her the courage to throw Harvey into the factory machines, which bleaches and shrinks him, the other adventurers find their old houses and Bubbie then praises Flap for finally learning how to fold his own laundry.
