Joey wants to show Fido a thing, so Fido leaves Spo in Joey's doghouse, telling him to stay out of trouble. Once inside, Spo meets Squeak, who is reading a book. He immediately hits on her with a nerdy pick-up line, though she immediately retorts back with a nerdier insult. As two wander into the grass outside, Spo is shocked that learn that Squeak already has a boyfriend, telling her she can't be a girlfriend to a dog. He tries to hit on her again, claiming that 'once you go rat you never go back,' only for her to reply that they're both mice.
Spo is confused as to what Squeak sees in 'big noses,' but before she can reply, they are forced to hide behind a ball as one of the Mr. Bigglesworth cats appears, having not been fed since her owner miscounted again. As Spo tries to figure a way out of the situation, Squeak offers to show him what she sees in 'big noses,' immediately stepping out and getting squished under Mr. Biggleworth's footpaw. Squeak gleefully admires how strong the cat's toes are and begs for her to press deeper. Mr. Bigglesworth leaves in disgust, saying she could go for a diet of cold showers. As Squeak dizzily sits back up, Spo remarks that he is both impressed and appalled -- impalled.
