On their journey home, the two Fraggles get stopped by Junior, Wembley uses the potion on him and get thrown down the well, dropping the potion and infecting everyone. The effects are luckily temporary, and after Lou show up, Wembley tells his friends he's going to spend time with her.

  • Extreme Doormat: Wembley is strung along throughtout the episode, being used in place of a laundry line, and had a boulder sat on top of him. He even lampshades why he's letting this happen to him.

  • Innocently Insensitive: The others didn't realize they were taking Wembley for granted.

  • Love Potion: The Trash Heap gives Wembley one.
  • Remembered Too Late: The Trash Heap forgot to tell the Fraggles the effects of the potion only lasts for 20 minutes just after they left.
