Synopsis

The Plantars volunteer to take Domino to the vet.

Plot

While Anne tries to read up on scientific discoveries hoping to find info on Amphibia, the Plantars are happy to be living in the lap of luxury with Hop Pop commenting on the two days they have been on Earth, only for Sprig to remind him that they have been there for a week. Hop Pop declares themselves to be "freeloaders" and compares themselves to Cousin Stanley, a supposed relative, who may not have actually been related to them, who mooched from them; forcing the Plantars to literally toss him out the window. As Mrs. Boonchuy has to take Anne to the dentist and Mr. Boonchuy needs to go into work, someone needs to take Domino to the vet. Wanting to prove their worth, the Plantars volunteer to take Domino. Anne thanked them, gave them the vet address, and advises them to say "Boy, I could use some coffee." if anyone suspects anything froggy about them. Mr. Boonchuy also gives them a phone to call if anything goes wrong.

The Plantars have a hard time getting Domino into her cage, but they succeed. In their human disguises, they manage to get onto the bus, but Hop Pop accidentally licks all the passengers while trying to keep the other frogs on their feet on the moving bus, and (after using Anne's statement to making the other humans think they're one of them) they are immediately kicked off, forcing them to walk the rest of the way to the vet. Sprig suggests calling Mr. Boonchuy, but Hop Pop wants to finish the job without any help and forces the three of them to resume taking Domino to the vet on foot. After a couple of side conflicts, they manage to arrive and see an Earth frog for the first time. As they are called in, the vet finishes his work and the Plantars ask questions about frogs, that are actually about themselves. Making the vet uncomfortable, they leave, but Domino escapes her cage.

The Plantars quickly come to the realization that Domino is gone. Polly tries to call for backup, but Hop Pop saves it as a last resort. After retracing their steps to find the cat (the closest they got to was a possum found by Polly), Sprig calls Mr. Boonchuy, despite Hop Pop's efforts to stop him. They learn that Domino is attracted to Shawarma and quickly find her at a restaurant. When the owner declares that he will keep the cat, the Plantars fake a fire alarm and retrieve her with Mr. Boonchuy picking them up. Hop Pop, feeling that they failed at being responsible, is told by Mr. Boonchuy that he respects them for taking care of Anne for five months and that he knows they are doing their best. They return home, along with a heavily drugged Anne who had "eight cavities and a whole lot of cricket legs". The Boonchuys leave an inebriated Anne with the Plantars as Domino casually licks herself.

Trivia

  • The title is a play on the movie, and its subsequent remake, Adventures in Babysitting.
  • It is revealed that a week has passed since the events of "The New Normal".
  • Domino II from "The Domino Effect" is mentioned by Sprig in this episode due having to take care of Domino.
  • Hop Pop is able to imitate the sound of a fire alarm. This is based on the fact that some frogs, such as the male concave-eared torrent frog, have the ability to emit ultra-frequency sounds that sound like fire alarms.
  • Anne did not brush or floss her teeth in Amphibia for 5 months, resulting in her receiving 8 cavities and a bunch of cricket legs in her teeth.
    • However, Anne was seen brushing her teeth in "Best Fronds".
  • Emily (the orange-haired girl in Sherm's Shawarma wearing a pink cat shirt and blue hat, whom Sherm referred to as "Karen") is seen earlier in the episode on a local bus when Hop Pop accidentally licks her face. She is also seen in the preceding episode "Thai Feud" on a street corner that Sprig grabs with his tongue to help Anne round a corner while driving Ned's food truck.
  • One of the passengers on the bus sports a shirt saying "Bibsy World", an obvious parody of Walt Disney World, while the rabbit mascot in the shirt is a possible nod to the character Oswald the Lucky Rabbit.
  • It is revealed that Shawarma is Domino's favourite food.
  • Sprig mentions him being part of the Boonchuy family from "Thai Feud".
  • This episode reveals that the Plantars had a cousin named Stanley who stayed with them for a long time or if he conned them into believing he was their cousin by painting his body.
