"& now, unfortunately for you, back to our show!" SALLY announces that today’s guests are 2 GROUCHES, 1 of whom fell in love with the other. She asks which of them actually fell in love, & OSCAR admits it was him, & begins to tell the story of how it happened: this morning, he & GRUNDGETTA were having their usual morning argument, when "Suddenly, I started hearing this YUCKY, sweet violin music...& then my, my heart was going pitty-pat, pitty-pat. I, I couldn’t even nyah-nyah-nyah-nyah-nyeahhh..." GRUNDGETTA: "He just kept lookin at me with those gah-gah eyes & then he said it!" SALLY: "What?" OSCAR: "GRUNDGETTA...I...I love you!"

"& now, despite your better intentions, back to our show!" OSCAR & GRUNDGETTA continue with their story, which picks up at the part when OSCAR sang "Love in the JUNKyard" to GRUNDGETTA who can’t believe OSCAR’s singing her a love song. He also can’t believe he’s actually singing this way to her but he says he can’t stop.

Sally Messy Yuckyael 2
Once the song is finally over, GRUNDGETTA refuses to meet OSCAR down in the moonlight in the JUNKyard. Unfortunately for her, he had to show her how much he loved her right at his TRASH CAN. He kissed GRUNDGETTA to do so!! This amount of detail is so disgusting that Sally calls for another break.

"& now back to the Sally Messy Yuckyael show!" GRUNDGETTA reveals how she made OSCAR fall out of love with her: by doing the only thing she really could do. She invited him to a romantic dinner at a nice little bistro. While there, she kisses him, which really makes him angry. Everyone is relieved that the big nightmare is now over. Sally asks OSCAR if it’s really over completely or if he’ll ever fall in love with her again. OSCAR says he’s just taking it 1 day at a time for the moment. GRUNDGETTA warns him that she’ll kiss him if he ever falls in love w/ her again. They then start arguing again, & SALLY announces another break.

"Oh, still here, eh? Well, back to the SALLY MESSY YUCKYAEL show!" OSCAR & GRUNDGETTA continue arguing, when all of a sudden, she hears violin music, & becomes attracted to OSCAR & she no longer feels like arguing! She begs OSCAR to just kiss her before she says "I love you" like OSCAR did. (SALLY: "On my show? What are ya tryin to do, raise my ratings?"), & OSCAR reluctantly does so. Grundgetta returns to normal & gets angry at OSCAR for the kiss. (OSCAR: "Hey, ya told me to kiss ya!" GRUNDGETTA: "So if I told ya to jump off of a bridge would ya?") They continue arguing, while Sally announces the sponsors & signs off.
