** This also happened in the episode when Klinger lost his hearing. The doctors were skeptical when he claimed their lips were moving but no sound was coming out. They realized he was telling the truth when BJ stood behind him and crashed two bedpans together, and he didn't flinch at all.

However, after Clover notices a leaf that appears to be a trap, they go for plan B by using a stone that turns the duo into wolves. Clover and Kale listen to their plans until they see a cave that contained missing berries. As the episode goes on, more stuff from the citizens of Crescent Forest starts disappearing. Cinnamon and Twirl once again run back to Clover and the rest of the citizens, only for Clover and Professor Hoot to say that they are both lying. Near the end of the episode Kale notices a moving box covered in sheets that is later revealed to be his baby brothers. His brothers then reveal that there actually is a wolf inside the box.
