The expected GROUCHYtowners show up at OSCARs TRASH CAN & OSCAR instructs They on how to plan "for niceness." They've got their sunglasses in case of smileyfaces, & nose plugs so they won't smell any cookies baking, but WORBY doesn't have a helmet to protect his head from being patted. Just then, they see Bob & Maria waving to someone, & smell his vanilla ice cream cone, but luckily they've prepared for that already. As they walk past him, he pats WORBY's bare head, which upsets him.
