After a particularly disastrous sleigh ride, Calvin freaks out upon learning that Rosalyn is coming. He calms down upon finding out he's coming... then freaks out even more upon learning the situation's reversed - he has to stay with Rosalyn!
His hiding from her and picky eating lead her to lock him in the garage (it isn't even noon!), where Calvin devises a plan - shutting off Rosalyn's TV, causing a power outage, and finally flooding her purse.
The duo escape her wrath by riding their wagon once more, and Rosalyn ends up hanging on for dear life on it! The wagon tears through the streets, a JC Penny, and finally Rosalyn's own home. Unsurprisingly, she ain't happy.
Calvin's parents literally lock him in his room, and Calvin finds the moral of the story - the fact that he's still alive.
- Badly Battered Babysitter: Rosalyn.
- Big "NO!": Calvin does one upon learning that Rosalyn is coming.
- Cats Have Nine Lives: Referenced.Hobbes: Yeah, I already lost five of my nine lives on that trip.
- Doomy Dooms of Doom: Step 1 of Calvin's plan is "TV doom".
- Giving Someone the Pointer Finger: Rosalyn does this while accusing Calvin.
- High-Pressure Emotion: Rosalyn.My goodness, her eyes had turned red, fangs began to grow out of her teeth, smoke bellowed out of her nose... Uh... She didn't look too happy about the state of the world.
- Spoof Aesop: Calvin's moral is that the world still has him, and that's good.
- Spoonerism: "She may have locked up our hodies Bobbes, but she can't lock up our soul!" Like "Home UnAlone", this leads to a pointless argument.
