Episode Summary[]

Vlcsnap-2023-02-11-17h59m26s586

Norb receives a letter in the mail from Treeflower telling him that she is coming to visit. When she arrives, Norb answers the door dressed as a hippy to find Treeflower dressed in a business suit. She tells him that she left her band to become an elevator music composer, and has also met someone new: Truckee the shrew. She soon leaves to help him wax his fenders. Norb is heartbroken, but Dag resolves to help his brother win Treeflower back.

Dag lures Truckee into a roadside stand and sends him airborne with a bunch of balloons. In order to get Treeflower's attention, Norb first tries ignoring her. Though this appears to work at first, she only asks him if he's seen Truckee and leaves when he says he hasn't. Truckee soon escapes from the balloons and fights Dag. Norb then decides to try and make Treeflower jealous, and Dag builds a fake girlfriend puppet that he names Tina. However, Treeflower is not jealous at all, comparing Norb's new relationship to Truckee and herself. Finally, Norb decides to act like a truck driving shrew in the hopes of catching Treeflower's eye.

Dag stops Truckee at an inspection stop and traps him in the back of his trailer. Norb pulls up in the truck disguised as a shrew, but Treeflower sees through his disguise and asks why he would ever try to trick her as a friend. At that moment Truckee escapes from the back of his trailer. Treeflower embraces him and asks if their date is still on. A confused Truckee explains that he only needed someone to help him wax his fenders, and that there's only one woman for him: his truck, Big Renee. As he pulls away, Dag bites on to one of his tires, causing himself to blow up like a balloon and be carried down the road. Treeflower begins to cry, unable to believe how foolish she was. Norb confesses that he thought he could win her back by dressing up as a shrew or by making her jealous of a puppet, to which Treeflower admits that she was somewhat jealous of Tina. They agree that no matter what happens between them, they will always be friends.

Norb returns home to find Dag sitting on the couch with one of Truckee's tires still in his mouth. He asks Norb if Treeflower dumped him again. Though Norb denies it, Dag asserts he was dumped once again and the two get into another argument over it. Outside, Tina is seen cuddling with Stump.
