Season 5[]

In Head in the Clouds, a strange man walks into Princess Carolyn's office, as she is reading Philbert reviews to Diane; claiming Flip McVicker stole one of the jokes he wrote for Popsicle sticks. He shows the Popsicle stick to Princess Carolyn, and the joke on it shocks her.

Princess Carolyn shows Flip the scene, where he used the stolen joke from the Popsicle stick, and he denies showing it. Mr. Abel Ziegler tells them, how he slaved creating those and all the other sayings on the Popsicle sticks.

Princess Carolyn tells him that they respect his work, but Mr. Ziegler isn't prone to flattery.

An annoyed Flip asks how much longer do they have to listen to him, but Princess Carolyn says they have to deal with this because if everyone finds out that's all they are going to focus on with Philbert.

Princess Carolyn offers Mr. Ziegler an invitation to the premiere party if he'll give this up. He agrees, but when he signs he puts an "and" at the end.

Apparently, there is a second party, his estranged business partner Ziggy, who is responsible for the punch line. Princess Carolyn asks if he can get him to sign a release, but Mr. Ziegler says that he hasn't talked to his business partner in thirty years.

At the premiere party, Princess Carolyn sits with both partners and tries to figure out why they are so against each other.

She learns it's because Abel doesn't respect Ziggy's job because he thinks it's easier than his. Princess Carolyn asks them to switch jobs, and walk in the other's shoes. They agree to this, while making up in the process, and sign the release.
