* [[MundaneMadeAwesome Awesome Made Mundane]]: Remember the [[http://i2.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/newsfeed/000/262/404/a19.gif amazing parallax work]] people raved about in the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' episode "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E19PuttingYourHoofDown Putting Your Hoof Down]]"? Those same parallax techniques return in this episode for…Roger gesturing with his training dummy. This happens repeatedly throughout the episode. However, it may be a production joke that the highest-quality, smoothest animation is reserved for the training dummy.

The pets, meanwhile, admire the truck through the pet shop window and, despite Russell's protests, sneak their way on board. Russell, in exasperation, goes in with them. In there, they meet Sugar Sprinkles, a cat who lives in the truck. (It's ambiguous whether the Songs know about Sugar Sprinkles or not.) Before further introductions, Penny Ling quickly comes and [[YouTasteDelicious licks the sprinkles off of the cat's head]]. Despite Russel's objection, Sugar actually ''encourages'' this while singing a quick tune. After her introduction, Russell climbs onto the driver's seat and fiddles with the controls. He goes into an ImagineSpot that ends in him pushing a button, causing a chain reaction that starts the car, releases the handbrake, and puts the gear onto Drive, sending the truck rolling down a hill. Blythe emerges from the shop to see the truck missing but spots it careening away in the distance, utilizing a nearby tricycle to attempt to catch up to it. The pets, inside the truck, try to stop it but only put themselves in more danger. Blythe eventually catches up to the truck, gets inside, and stops it, but not before destroying most of the desserts inside. As luck would have it, a cop pulls over and figuring Blythe took the truck out on a joyride, issues her a traffic ticket.

A livid Roger, still attached to his dummy, grounds Blythe in her room, takes away her smartphone, and makes her help Youngmee and Christie bake more sweets. The pets decide to clear Blythe's name, Russell proposing to stage a re-enactment using Blythe's phone's camera. They divert Roger's attention away from the phone and bring it into the sweets truck for the re-enactment. The other pets prove themselves incompetent at acting and Sugar Sprinkles noncooperative. A frustrated Russell inadvertently tosses his loudspeaker at the same button on the seat, once again causing a chain reaction that sends the truck down the hill. This time, the truck passes by Roger, who hops on board the same tricycle Blythe used earlier in the episode to catch up to the truck. He stops the truck in the same spot as Blythe and once again ruins the desserts. He gets the attention of the same cop and also receives a ticket. Spotting Blythe's phone in the truck, he sees the accidental footage of this second chain reaction and realizes Blythe, who is in Christie's bakery helping Youngmee replenish the supplies, was not to blame.
