|“||The universe is a cruel, uncaring void. The key to being happy isn't a search for meaning. It's to just keep yourself busy with unimportant nonsense, and eventually, you'll be dead.||”|
—Mr. Peanutbutter, Later
|“||Doggy Doggy what now!?||”|
—Mr. Peanutbutter’s catchphrase on Mr. Peanutbutter's House
Mr. Peanutbutter, the star of Mr. Peanutbutter's House, is an anthropomorphic yellow Labrador Retriever, who is BoJack Horseman's friend and former sitcom rival and a main character in BoJack Horseman. He dates and later marries Diane Nguyen, although the two divorce in Season 5.
In the same season, he plays Fritz on Philbert, and he begins dating a young female pug named Pickles Aplenty. He proposes to her in the season finale to avoid admitting he cheated on her by sleeping with Diane.
In Season 6, he plays Birthday Dad in the show of the same name, which is a huge success. After Pickles learns about Diane, they agree she can sleep with multiple guys until she finds the right one to cheat on him with, although this ends up with her leaving him for Joey Pogo and they officially break up in Xerox of a Xerox.
Mr. Peanutbutter is a male Labrador Retriever. He is five years younger than BoJack, despite looking much younger. He has yellow fur, a brown nose, a slim and muscular build.
According to model sheets, he is 6 ft tall.
He always wears a grey V-neck t-shirt and aviator sunglasses, usually propped on his head, with light blue pants with white lines going down the sides, orange high-top sneakers, and two wristbands, a brown one and a neon green one, on his left wrist.
In 2007, he wore a blue and red "Swan Dutch" hat, a black t-shirt with a design on the front that included a dog skull over crossbones with the words "Fetch, Sit, Stay" in it, grey-blue acid-washed jeans, olive green sneakers, and three bracelets, a pink, red, and neon green bracelet respectively, on his left wrist.
In the 90s he had a tuft of wavy hair. On Mr. Peanutbutter's House, he wore a dark blue collared button-down shirt with a 90s-esque geometric yellow, purple, and teal pattern on it, light blue jeans, brown belt, and white sneakers with Velcro straps.
Mr. Peanutbutter's demeanor is constantly energetic, nice, cheerful, kind, and playful. In short, he is "a dog seen from the point of view of a cat person." Not only is he constantly positive, but he is also a bonehead who has difficulty understanding metaphors or puns.
This causes him to crack jokes that instead of being funny, just make people scratch their heads.
He can also be described as a "man-child," as he is BoJack's age but still acts like a twenty-something-year-old party animal.
Despite their rivalry, he cares a great deal about BoJack's opinion and admires him for his work on Horsin' Around. He is always trying to reach out to BoJack and be his friend. BoJack finds this annoying and always shoots Mr. Peanutbutter down, although that never stops Mr. Peanutbutter from trying to befriend BoJack.
A life of success, wealth, and fame have meant he has never faced any real challenges or have to make difficult decisions, leaving him almost completely inept in the real world.
However, he is not as dumb as he might be letting on, as stupidity is part of his persona and a result of his naivety, and he can at times show hidden depth. In Let's Find Out, Mr. Peanutbutter reveals to BoJack he knows he's mean to him and doesn't like him.
He tells BoJack "all I ever wanted was to be your friend, and you treat me like a big joke."
He was also the first person to intervene when BoJack, high on opioids, started strangling Gina to death, saying sternly "Ok that’s enough!" and pulling BoJack off of her with two other crew members when everyone else either did nothing or filmed the incident.
He also dislikes change, as he didn't want Diane to go to Cordovia.
He can be very headstrong and heavily opinionated at times especially in a heated argument to the point of being borderline defensive. Despite Diane constantly voicing her dislike of them, Mr. Peanutbutter constantly tries to impress her with grand gestures because he's scared she'll get bored of him and leave like his previous wives.
There are also traces of nihilism in him, believing "the key to being happy is to just distract yourself with unimportant nonsense until you eventually die."
This may be an explanation to his impulsive behavior, along with his blissful ignorance, which he may use to avoid actually confronting his problems and handling negative situations—or changing as a person to solve them.
An example of the latter trait is in Higher Love when Mr. Peanutbutter assumes if he just walks around Los Angeles a job opportunity will just simply come to him, and cheerfully ignores the fact he and Diane may lose their house as PB Livin' went bankrupt. Diane even outright says this to him, advising him to actually go to auditions, and get a new agent.
His biggest flaw seems to be that he does not listen, especially to his wives. He doesn't seem to take into mind their individual personalities and needs. This is showcased in Mr. Peanutbutter's Boos, where he didn't listen to Katrina when she begged him to not leave her alone at the party. Also, in After the Party and What Time Is It Right Now, where he upsets and angers Diane by giving her big gestures and gifts which she tells him countless times throughout their relationship she doesn't like.
In Mr. Peanutbutter's Boos, he thinks this is why all his relationships fail and why his exes went from fun and happy to bitter and mean—but Diane tells him it's because he dates young women, and they just grow up while he continues to act like a "man-child" who places all the responsibilities, including himself, on them, which tires them and leads them to end their relationship with him.
His high energy, unpredictability, impulsiveness, and inability to actually listen makes him rather exhausting when it comes to relationships. Diane tells him he can either date older women or grow up, both options sir which he isn't too thrilled about.
Mr. Peanutbutter shows the latter problem after he cheats on Pickles by sleeping with Diane—and he asks her to break the news to Pickles, which Diane rightfully refuses to do. Mr. Peanutbutter ends up proposing to Pickles, instead of telling her the truth, setting the cycle of all his failed marriages back in motion.
In Surprise!, after he takes advice from Diane, who was pretending to be his house’s thermostat, Mr. Peanutbutter makes more of an effort to talk less and listen more while trying to reconcile with Pickles. Whenever she said something, Mr. Peanutbutter would stop himself from verbally replying, only responding to what Pickles says by nodding his head, and replied verbally when Pickles wanted an answer from him on how to make things right.
Mr. Peanutbutter was born on the Labrador Peninsula in rural Canada on August 20, 1969. He attended Northwestern University.
He has one brother, Captain Peanutbutter, who is five minutes older.
At one point, Mr. Peanutbutter's mom got sick with Parkinson's in her elderly age, and his brother told him he arranged for her to be sent to a farm in the country for her to run around in with no internet or telephones, where all his other relatives went when they got old, including his father later on.
Obviously, his parents actually died, which Mr. Peanutbutter didn't realize until INT. SUB, devastating him.
He first moved to Los Angeles in the late 80s or early 90s, where he ended up co-piloting the plane that brought him to California, which happened purely because he walked into a room without looking.
He was recruited onto Mr. Peanutbutter's House in 1992 with no previous acting experience, having wowed the show's director David Chase and the audience when he inadvertently barged in on the pilot's live taping. The show's working title was Untitled Horsin' Around Knockoff, and BoJack Horseman was resentful of the show because he rightly assumed it was a knockoff, and showed annoyance and resentment towards Mr. Peanutbutter.
However, Mr. Peanutbutter would act energetic and cheerful around BoJack, considering him a friend, which just annoys BoJack even more.
Around this time, he was married to a woman named Katrina. She started out as fun and cheerful and they were happily married. On Halloween 1993, Mr. Peanutbutter and Katrina went to BoJack's house for his Halloween party, which BoJack lies about having so he wouldn't have to go to Mr. Peanutbutter's party, but Mr. Peanutbutter ended up bringing his party to BoJack's house.
Mr. Peanutbutter would continue to do this every year—despite BoJack hating the parties, although he would always get extremely drunk by the end and would always tell the leaving guests to do it again next year. Before leaving, Katrina asked Mr. Peanutbutter to not leave her alone during the party, as she didn't know anyone there, and Mr. Peanutbutter agreed.
However, he does leave her alone multiple times to talk to and party with the other guests, with Katrina becoming more upset and angry throughout the night. Although, every time she made this clear to Mr. Peanutbutter he would either acknowledge her feelings but get distracted by an event and leave to join, or try to distract her by having her or suggesting she talk to the other attendants like BoJack.
She ends up being forced to talk politics with Ben Stein and Tim Allen for half an hour, making her even more angry bitter about her situation, but it made her think more about government. When Mr. Peanutbutter is told she had to endear that for half an hour, he cheerfully says "I guess time flies when you’re having fun!," which finally makes Katrina snap and she angrily shouts "I am not having fun!" interrupting the party.
She yells at him for leaving her alone, the one thing she asked him not to do, and how he never listens. Mr. Peanutbutter assures her he'll never leave her alone again, but Katrina storms off saying she wants to be alone now and tells him to have fun with his hippie liberal friends.
She continued to be cruel and cold towards Mr. Peanutbutter for the remainder of their marriage.
Mr. Peanutbutter, with Katrina, attended the 1994 Animal Choice Awards, as he and BoJack were nominated for Male Animal In A Comedy Drama Or Variety Show, although they both lost to veteran talk show host Hank Hippopopalous, Mr. Peanutbutter's childhood idol.
Mr. Peanutbutter got to meet Hank at the after-party, excitedly tells Hank how much of a fan he is and how Hank inspired him as a kid, and he got a picture with him. Mr. Peanutbutter then excused himself as Katrina had her hand down a busboy's pants.
Mr. Peanutbutter and Katrina divorced shortly afterward, with Katrina eventually getting a high ranking job in the California government.
Mr. Peanutbutter married actress Jessica Biel sometime before 2004.
They attended BoJack's Halloween Party in 2004, where Jessica wanted them to dress like the lead characters from the movie The Notebook, but Mr. Peanutbutter ends up dressing as an actual notebook. Before leaving, Jessica asked Mr. Peanutbutter to not let her see any mummies, as she had a traumatic past experience relating to them.
At the party, Mr. Peanutbutter learns that Jessica auditioned for a role in The Mummy with Brendan Fraser...and didn't get the part.
Meanwhile, BoJack didn't have a costume so he asks Princess Carolyn for help. She takes him outside and uses the toilet paper the house had been covered with by teenagers (including a teenage Todd) to turn him into a mummy.
He approaches Jessica Biel while Mr. Peanutbutter watches in dismay, as his notebook costume was too wide to let him run through the door to protect her. He tells her to not turn around, but she ends up seeing the mummy and is horrified. Jessica yells at Mr. Peanutbutter for not keeping the mummy away, while also revealing she auditioned to play the actual mummy as she storms off.
Mr. Peanutbutter took a long list of low-level acting gigs during the mid-2000s. In 2007, he starred in an underseas commercial for Seaborn Seahorse Milk, which became popular and is still aired in the present day as seen in Fish Out Of Water and in What Time Is It Right Now, where two fish people recognize Mr. Peanutbutter for it.
The same year, Mr. Peanutbutter and Jessica divorced, as Jessica was tired of him taking job offers that were beneath him, and she started dating Justin Timberlake immediately after she broke up with him.
However, that same evening Jessica dumped him, Mr. Peanutbutter met Diane Nguyen, an aspiring writer who was a part-time caterer at the time and was catering for the event he was at, and who he met earlier at a Starbucks that Diane also worked at. The two eventually started dating, and by 2009 Diane moved in with him.
On Halloween 2009, Mr. Peanutbutter and Diane attended BoJack's Halloween party. Diane felt pressured to act like she loved parties and socializing and to live up to his "fun" ex-wives, insisting to Mr. Peanutbutter she was having fun when he asked if she was OK. When Diane asks if they can go soon, because being around so many famous people made her nervous, Mr. Peanutbutter instead insists she go talk to BoJack.
Diane ends up making a fool of herself in front of BoJack, who interrupts her and coldly tells her he's on the phone, as unbeknownst to her his mom was telling him that his father died.
An upset Diane tells Mr. Peanutbutter she made a fool of herself in front of BoJack, and questions why he made her talk to him. Diane says she's good in small groups and shouts that she hates parties, which interrupts the party.
She tells him it's too much pressure to try to be as fun as his ex-wives, and she runs out of the house.
In their car, Diane apologizes to Mr. Peanutbutter for ruining another Halloween for him. Mr. Peanutbutter says she didn't, and that he loves her and wants to know the real her. He's glad he knows she hates parties and they won't ever have that argument ever again. Diane is still upset about BoJack, but Mr. Peanutbutter assures her that he won't even remember that he met her.
In the first episode, which takes place in 2014, Diane is hired to ghostwrite BoJack's autobiography. The two hit it off when they meet at a party arranged by Todd, BoJack, in particular, seems to be attracted to Diane, although to his envy and disgust, as he throws up after discovering this, she is dating Mr. Peanutbutter.
In Zoës and Zeldas, Diane's ex-boyfriend Wayne follows Mr. Peanutbutter as he claims he is writing a Buzzfeed article on him. However, Diane realizes that the notes he took were all gibberish, and he admits that he wanted to get back together with her.
Wayne tells her she and Mr. Peanutbutter aren’t right for each other, using the "Zoë and Zelda" comparison. This refers to twin sisters from the show Mr. Peanutbutter's House—Zelda was a happy extrovert, Zoë was a cynical introvert. He tells her Mr. Peanutbutter is a "Zelda," and he and Diane are "Zoës," and that when she realizes that to call him. He leaves, and it's revealed Mr. Peanutbutter heard the whole thing. He cheerfully says, "I like that guy!"
In Our A-Story is a "D" Story, he seems to be jealous/concerned of BoJack and Diane bonding, the former of whom denies he has anything to worry about. Mr. Peanutbutter believes him, although the two eventually engaged in a competition of one-upmanship to see who can impress Diane more. After Mr. Peanutbutter takes Diane home, BoJack gets drunk and steals the "D" from the Hollywood sign to impress Diane.
He realizes this the next morning after seeing the "D" on his deck. Mr. Peanutbutter arrives to confirm his suspicions of BoJack having feelings for Diane by stealing the "D," but offers to help BoJack return the D secretly under the condition BoJack stops pursuing Diane romantically. BoJack agrees. Mr. Peanutbutter and BoJack concoct a plan to distract the public while the D is hauled away by Mr. Peanutbutter's helicopter.
However, BoJack is double-crossed when Mr. Peanutbutter has the D delivered to his house instead and falsely confessed to stealing it as a romantic gesture for Diane. When Diane returns home later that night, Mr. Peanutbutter talks to Diane to apologize for his grand gestures and explains how much he loves her despite having different personalities. He proposes to Diane, and she accepts.
At the end of The Telescope, BoJack kisses Diane, leaving things awkward for the two in the following episode, Horse Majeure. The next day she tells BoJack she has enough information to finish the book, in order to indirectly avoid him.
Mr. Peanutbutter in the meanwhile gets his driver's license suspended for chasing after mailmen. Diane suggests he hire a personal driver, and he shortly thereafter catches Todd in the act of planting unspecified incriminating evidence in his computer as part of BoJack's plan. Mr. Peanutbutter naively believes Todd is actually there to apply to be his personal driver and hires Todd after an impromptu interview.
Diane's stress with the wedding and her situation with BoJack culminates while shopping for wedding registry ideas with Mr. Peanutbutter, to which they ultimately decide to move the wedding up within the month and to hold a smaller celebration.
Upon learning of this, BoJack decides to hire Character Actress Margo Martindale to stage a bank robbery to steal Diane's engagement ring when she and Mr. Peanutbutter are set to go to the bank, hoping to cause a rift between them by taking away a symbol of their relationship. BoJack's plan goes awry, however, when the robbery instead helps Diane reaffirm her love for Mr. Peanutbutter, and they push the wedding to happen within the week.
The wedding is then decided to be held at the restaurant BoJack owns on BoJack's suggestion so he has a better vantage to sabotage the wedding. Todd then learns from a personal conversation with Mr. Peanutbutter that he has doubts about his marriage to Diane. Mr. Peanutbutter remarks he sometimes feels relief when he dreams that Diane disappeared from his life. Todd is conflicted about whether to tell BoJack this, however, he decides against it when he realizes BoJack caused him to sabotage his rock opera.
The afternoon before the wedding, BoJack gets stuck in jury duty, leaving him unable to come up with any plans to sabotage the wedding. Spurred on by Margo Martindale at the courthouse to tell Diane his feelings for her, BoJack rushes to the wedding, only to be stopped by an angry Todd telling him to stop intruding in other people's lives. He attends the wedding without incident, and Mr. Peanutbutter and Diane get married after seven years of dating. During the after-party, Mr. Peanutbutter hires Todd as his assistant, for his new company, PB Livin'.
The "D" incident inspired the film Mr. Peanutbutter's Hollywoo Heist, directed by Quentin Tarantulino. BoJack was cast as Mr. Peanutbutter and Naomi Watts was cast as Diane. However, Todd begins to suggest ideas to Quentin Tarantulino, and is reciprocated due to Tarantulino's eccentricity. This causes major changes to the script and film and begins to downplay BoJack's screen time and involvement.
BoJack suspects this is the direct result of Todd enacting revenge for BoJack's sabotage of Todd's rock opera. The changes to the film become increasingly drastic until the film is canceled altogether when Quentin and Todd decide the story should be told as a "bi-monthly curated box of snacks."
Later shows Todd and Mr. Peanutbutter continuing to work on business ventures for PB Livin they brainstorm on the fly. Todd is continually making new ideas up with his love of wordplay, while Mr. Peanutbutter is continually entertained by Todd's ideas. He has the capital to start them despite never following through with them. After abandoning their first idea of a Halloween store during January, Mr. Peanutbutter throws a large launch party for "Smoodies" (a mood you can drink) at his house without an actual product behind the idea.
Meanwhile, Diane is offered by celebrity Sebastian St. Clair to come to war-torn Cordovia with him to write a memoir for him similar to what she did for BoJack. At the same time, she is contacted by the producers of the Secretariat film to be a character consultant, and she is stuck with choosing between the two options. Mr. Peanutbutter convinces her to stay home for the time being.
Mr. Peanutbutter begins Season 2 by wearing a dog cone, after having to get stitches in his arm after punching a mirror while he was drunk; as he thought his reflection another dog. He has it removed in the following episode, Yesterdayland, where he also wants to get involved with Todd's Disneyland because he built it while working for PB Livin' and Todd, who wanted it to be his own thing, reluctantly agrees.
Mr. Peanutbutter calls a lawyer to make sure Disneyland is legal. The lawyer informs Todd that it isn't legal and that he'll see him in court. Todd bypasses the lawsuit because Walt Disney accidentally wrote down the wrong name for the trademark, "Diisneyland." Todd celebrates his legal victory with a party at BoJack's house. He angrily tells Mr. Peanutbutter that he did all the work, and kicks him out of the theme park. However, he goes there the following day and apologizes to Todd. He accepts and Mr. Peanutbutter rescues him when the park begins to crumble and burn down.
Mr. Peanutbutter celebrates Diane's thirty-fifth birthday with her in After the Party. However, to her displeasure, as she hates big gestures, he threw her a surprise birthday party. The two got in a huge argument on whether Tony Curtis was dead, as BoJack's girlfriend Wanda had asked, thus ending the party early after Diane freaked out as she angrily insisted he's dead. As Diane angrily cleans up, Mr. Peanutbutter asks if she wants to talk about it. Diane angrily tells him he didn't trust that she knew something, and he says he just wanted to double-check anyways.
Mr. Peanutbutter asks for credit for the surprise party, in which Diane says she didn't want it. He threw the party for himself. Mr. Peanutbutter counters this and tells her the whole day was spent doing things she wanted to do.
Diane goes inside Mr. Peanutbutter's office, which is filled with ball-pit balls, which Mr. Peanutbutter explains is because he recalled her wishing she had a ballroom as a child (although she tries to correct him, he jumps in before she can finish). Diane continues to explain she didn't like parties and big gestures and has told him countless times before.
The next room she goes into is themed after Starbucks in the Season 3 episode The BoJack Horseman Show that is where the two met. Diane does admit that he went all out. He recalls her not loving Starbucks, but loving the independent coffee place, although Starbucks is more convenient, showing Diane he does listen.
The two layouts on the pool, as it is filled with green Jell-O. Mr. Peanutbutter says he wants every day to be a happy one because they don't have many days left. Diane realizes he doesn't want her to go to Cordovia. He admits she's right because he doesn't want her to go on a six-month trip to a war-torn country with a billionaire who's also a handsome, eligible bachelor.
Diane says she isn't happy and that helping people and making a difference with Sebastian St. Clair could give her a reason to get out of bed. He says if she told her that, he would have listened. She says she doesn't want to be in a routine as an old couple. They go into their living room and he says he waits all day for her to come home. She says that he won't always be her only priority. He agrees, and she asks for no more surprise parties.
In Higher Love, Mr. Peanutbutter's frustrated accountant Oxnard tells him PB Livin' is bankrupt due to him and Todd going through with terrible business ideas. He angrily tells Mr. Peanutbutter to get a job. Mr. Peanutbutter goes to see his agent, Ronnie Bonito, although after waiting outside all day he goes into his office to find Ronnie has accidentally died from auto-erotic asphyxiation.
Mr. Peanutbutter decided to wander around L.A. in the hope that an opportunity will be handed to him, as most things were just handed to him for little or no work. This somehow works, and he ends up working at a Lady FootLocker until he is approached by Princess Carolyn gets him a job for author J.D. Salinger.
Salinger pitches and idea for a game show to Wanda at MBN, where Hollywoo stars and celebrities answer questions and the audience finds out what they know and if they know things. Wanda green lights the show, Hollywoo Stars and Celebrities: What Do They Know? Do They Know Things?? Let's Find Out!, and Mr. Peanutbutter is hired as the host as his comeback role.
However, this role was almost jeopardized in Hank After Dark when Diane, while on a book tour with BoJack promoting the paperback version of BoJack's book, brought up dark allegations made towards veteran MBN talk show host Hank Hippopopalous from eight of his former assistants. Diane gained massive backlash over bringing up these details, despite the fact they had been public for years, as Hank is beloved and as a result, no one wants to believe he is capable of doing bad things.
This almost jeopardized Mr. Peanutbutter's job, as he and Hank both work at MBN, he even looked up to Hank growing up, and he started receiving death threats for Diane. After a confrontation with Hank in a parking garage, where he told her she won't win because he's beloved and the media will move on to some other irrelevant story, which in fact actually happens, Diane suggests to Mr. Peanutbutter maybe she should go to Cordovia.
Mr. Peanutbutter tells her she should, so that she can feel good about herself and because some space may be good for them at the moment. When Diane asks if he really wants her to go, he somberly says "Why does it suddenly matter what I want?"
BoJack competes on Hollywoo Stars and Celebrities: What Do They Know? Do They Know Things?? Let's Find Out! in the following episode against Daniel Radcliffe for charity which BoJack thinks is Daniel's stripper girlfriend or something-as in Charity (female name) instead of charity (like donating money). BoJack is annoyed Daniel keeps getting easy questions and the game is essentially set up in his favor, and thinks Mr. Peanutbutter is being a "dick."
After Princess Carolyn tells him Mr. Peanutbutter perks his ears up when he says the correct answer, he begins to win. He is eventually forced by Wanda to answer a question wrong (when did Secretariat win the Triple Crown), which Mr. Peanutbutter laughs at him for, as BoJack at the time was filming the Secretariat movie and was playing Secretariat.
BoJack gets angry at his mockery and tells him Diane went to Cordovia to get away from her failing marriage. This angers Mr. Peanutbutter and he interrupts the show to have BoJack sit across from him as he confronts him about kissing Diane. He reveals Diane told him, and BoJack in general being mean to him, despite him just wanting to be his friend. Showing he isn't oblivious to how BoJack treats him, he questions why BoJack doesn't like him. BoJack admits it's because he's jealous that Mr. Peanutbutter feels good about himself, and BoJack doesn't know if he'll ever be able to do that.
Mr. Peanutbutter storms off during the commercial break, unsure as to whether he should forgive BoJack. Wanda tells him in a threatening tone that this is network television, so all their show's problems must be wrapped up in under half an hour, and the people want resolution. Mr. Peanutbutter announces to the audience after the break that he forgives BoJack, and then Daniel Radcliffe makes them kiss.
He assists BoJack with his scheme to film a crucial scene for Secretariat that was written out of the film by the executives where Secretariat convinces Nixon to send his brother to Vietnam in his place, and he later learns he died in. In The Shot, as he agrees to play Nixon's dog Checkers. After this, he calls Diane and tells her he's really proud of her that she's in Cordovia doing great things.
Unbeknownst to him, while Diane was talking to him she had just returned to LA and was at the airport, as she couldn't handle the realities of war-torn Cordovia or Sebastian's ego. Feeling like a failure and not wanting to face her husband because of it, she stays with BoJack and sleeps on his deck for a few months, as Mr. Peanutbutter continues to host Hollywoo Stars and Celebrities: What Do They Know? Do They Know Things?? Let's Find Out!
Diane pretends to still be in Cordovia whenever she calls him. At the end of Yes And, she tells Mr. Peanutbutter that it's too hard to talk to him on the phone all the time, and they shouldn't call each other for a while because she misses him too much. Mr. Peanutbutter reluctantly agrees as the two say they love each other.
In the Season 2 finale Out to Sea, Mr. Peanutbutter and Diane are shown to be lonely without each other. After Princess Carolyn gets her out of her funk and hires her at her new agency for a Celebrity Tweet ghostwriter, Diane goes to the restaurant Elefante to meet with Sextina Aquafina, one of her new clients. After this, she and Mr. Peanutbutter, who is at the same restaurant, notice each other from across the room, to their shock.
Mr. Peanutbutter calls Diane, and, still acting as if Diane is in Cordovia, he tells her he can't find the batteries for the remote, and that he should come home and help him. Diane plays along and says she can make it home that night. The two say they love each other. Afterward, Mr. Peanutbutter tells Diane there's a woman in the restaurant he's at that looks just like her, which makes her laugh, although it is unknown if Mr. Peanutbutter was joking or if he was actually being serious.
Season 3 shows that Mr. Peanutbutter and Diane's marriage has become strained due to Diane not immediately coming home after leaving Cordovia, and as such they make constant phone calls with them assuring each other they understand their feelings and Diane assuring him her location and when she'll be home, as he now gets worried when he doesn't know where she is.
In Start Spreading The News, Mr. Peanutbutter, in a meeting at MBN with Pinky Penguin and J.D. Salinger, accidentally gets in a conference call with Diane and Princess Carolyn, and BoJack and Ana, with the latter two are in New York, when Princess Carolyn meant to put him on hold.
Mr. Peanutbutter starts talking to BoJack, and after Diane talks to Mr. Peanutbutter he thinks she's in New York too, but quickly tells her he's not accusing her and that he feels better when he knows where she is. Diane agrees to this and assures him she's not in New York.
Meanwhile, at MBN, Pinky reveals he got promoted to head of programming, as Wanda got left MBN and got hired by another network and moved to Detroit. However, J.D. Salinger reveals he wants to "cancel Hollywoo Stars and Celebrities: What Do They Know? Do They Know Things?? Let's Find Out!," leaving Mr. Peanutbutter out of a job.
Later, Mr. Peanutbutter talks to Oxnard about TV show ideas. Oxnard tells him what he thinks Todd would say in this situation and tells him an idea involving spaghetti strainers. Mr. Peanutbutter thinks it's a wonderful idea and tells Oxnard to put all his money into spaghetti strainers, to Oxnard's dismay.
In BoJack Kills Diane heads outside for a smoke break before they leave. She receives a phone call from Mr. Peanutbutter, who practices a new exercise referred to as their "Daily Download," which involves a heavy amount of repetitive and cyclic phrasing. Before ending the call, Diane makes Mr. Peanutbutter promise not to bother their skunk neighbor, stating that she doesn't want to deal with a stinky husband when she returns home.
Following the phone call, Mr. Peanutbutter immediately contacts Princess Carolyn, in seek of assistance. Princess Carolyn, at first, assumes he needs a body buried; which initially shocks Mr. Peanutbutter. Mr. Peanutbutter then reveals that he and Todd have been sprayed by a skunk. Princess Carolyn gets ready to drive over, to help them, while telling them not to enter the house. Mr. Peanutbutter reveals that he and Todd are already inside the house. Following, she grabs her keys and heads out to aid them.
Princess Carolyn shows up at Mr. Peanutbutter's house, to find it smelling of skunk and marijuana, courtesy of Todd smoking a joint. Also, the house is filled with spaghetti strainers.
Mr. Peanutbutter expresses concern, that he and Diane may end up getting a divorce if any more fights break out between them—and asks for help removing the skunk scent before she returns home. Princess Carolyn suggests they take a tomato bath. Todd is enthusiastic about the idea, due to being high on marijuana.
However, after the two take their bath, Mr. Peanutbutter becomes irritated by the tomato sauce in his fur, and tries to resist shaking off. He fails and shakes tomato sauce all over Princess Carolyn and the bedroom. He notes that shaking off made their problem worse, despite the skunk scent being cleared from their bodies. Princess Carolyn prepares to calls a cleaning service, while Todd and Mr. Peanutbutter take care of their foul-smelling clothes.
Princess Carolyn freaks out upon seeing that Todd and Mr. Peanutbutter have started a fire outside. They reveal that they're burning the clothes, as opposed to removing the stench, because Carolyn said to "get rid" of them prior.
Princess Carolyn thinks for a moment as Mr. Peanutbutter's lawn is destroyed by the fire, and she comes up with the false story that Mr. Peanutbutter got rid of the lawn and replaced it with drought-resistant landscaping. He's excited by the false tale possibly making Diane happy. Princess Carolyn meanwhile begins contacting a landscaper.
Mr. Peanutbutter later calls Diane, who is in Ojai with BoJack, very early in the morning. When she picks up, he is furious she didn't call him and that he waited up all night worried about her. He tells her they'll talk about this when she comes home.
While Mr. Peanutbutter is able to go into great detail while expressing himself to Diane, Diane has trouble doing so. The therapist, Dr. Janet, tells Diane that for the next time she has to focus on putting her feelings into words.
Later, at their house, Diane explains to Mr. Peanutbutter that it's hard for her to talk about her feelings because she didn't have the support growing up as he did. She gets a text from Alexi Brosefino, a famous movie star and member of the entourage "The Snatch Batch," and how he wants her to party with him that night so that she can take Instagram pictures. She agrees to go despite Mr. Peanutbutter wanting to just stay in. She assures him she'll call him if she's out late, and that she's probably not going to have a good time and she's only doing it for work.
Diane later returns home from the party tripping on a drug called Gush. She has had the epiphany she is all of the Diane's and Mr. Peanutbutter is really good for her. She then breaks her left wrist in an attempt to carry Mr. Peanutbutter into their bedroom.
Diane and Mr. Peanutbutter are at the hospital, where Diane's wrist has been put in a cast. She's sad because she thinks things will go back to normal the next day. They'll fight because she's mean, and she doesn't know why she is.
Mr. Peanutbutter assures her she isn't. Diane says she wants to go to the Labrador Peninsula to spend New Years with his family, much to Mr. Peanutbutter's excitement. The doctor comes in and tells her blood work is good, but not to do any more drugs in the time being because she's pregnant.
The episode Brrap Brrap Pew Pew begins right where the previous ended, with Diane, at the hospital with Mr. Peanutbutter, cursing at the revelation that she is pregnant.
The two drive home, acting awkward about talking about the baby, although they had always agreed that they didn't want kids. They both agree to get an abortion.
Todd and Emily pitch "Cabracadabra," a rideshare app that provides a safe space for women, to Mr. Peanutbutter in Stop the Presses. Of course, he’s on board with the idea. They are setting up shop at BoJack’s house, because of there no room at Mr. Peanutbutter’s house, as it’s filled with spaghetti strainers. Mr. Peanutbutter can’t remember why, but he’s certain the payoff will be huge.
Mr. Peanutbutter and Diane travel to his hometown on the Labrador Peninsula in Old Acquaintance to celebrate New Years with his older brother, Captain Peanutbutter, who picks them up from the airport. While they wait, Todd calls Mr. Peanutbutter and asks him if he should also have Cabracadabra available as a safe space for men, and Mr. Peanutbutter thinks that's a great idea.
Mr. Peanutbutter and Captain Peanutbutter are excited to spend the holiday together, although whenever Diane is alone with him Captain Peanutbutter talks in a nihilistic manner to her. He says things like they'll all die one day, and it's cruel to let people love you because you're just promising one day you'll break their hearts. When Diane tries to tell Mr. Peanutbutter and wonders if it's about her abortion, Mr. Peanutbutter assure her Captain Peanutbutter is probably just joking around with her.
Meanwhile, Todd calls Mr. Peanutbutter again and tells him that his idea to start including male customers was a success, loving the safe spaces for women more than the women themselves. However, it's caused some problems, because they're starting to rate drivers on how attractive they are. Mr. Peanutbutter tells him that if their women don't feel safe in that space, then they need to find new women. Todd heads to Whale World to find said women.
Diane tries to bring up Captain Peanutbutter again when she's in bed with Mr. Peanutbutter, telling him he should talk to his brother because something is going on with him. Mr. Peanutbutter assures her that she should drop it because if something was wrong his brother would tell him. When Diane tries to convince him again, Mr. Peanutbutter gets angry at her, questioning if she thinks she knows his brother better than him and just because she has a bad family doesn't mean everyone else does. He quickly apologizes and tells her he has to go for a walk.
Mr. Peanutbutter goes outside and asks Captain Peanutbutter if everything is OK with him. Captain Peanutbutter reveals that he has a twisted spleen and needs an operation, but it's not fatal and everything's going to be fine.
Mr. Peanutbutter is upset by this news and asks Captain Peanutbutter if he's sure everything will be OK. Captain Peanutbutter tells him "one day [Mr. Peanutbutter] will have to be the captain." An emotional Mr. Peanutbutter jokes about how depressing their conversation got, and they laugh and howl at the moon.
In It's You, Mr. Peanutbutter becomes depressed due to his brother's illness, as he and Todd purchase a new building for Cabracadabra's headquarters.
Mr. Peanutbutter, alone at home, still sad after calling his ill brother, gets a call from Shep Von Trapp, who offers him the role of Oscar nominee announcer. This was after Jimmy Fallon, the original host, was hit with a bus and "broke his face." Captain Peanutbutter, not long before his surgery, talks him into doing it despite his melancholy; saying he'll call him later.
Later, at the Oscars Mr. Peanutbutter and Todd accidentally drop the phone after it rings, making them leave the area to find it. After doing so, it is revealed it was Captain Peanutbutter calling, and he announces his surgery was a success. However, before celebrating, Mr. Peanutbutter realizes that the red envelope containing the nominations handed to him by Shep Von Trapp was gone. They decide, after tricking and running away from Von Trapp, to make up the nominees by looking at the list of actors.
Mr. Peanutbutter, after mentioning BoJack to Todd, is surprised by Todd's angry remarks on whether or not BoJack was their friend. Todd says he's tired that BoJack walks over everybody, but still gets what he wants, as something BoJack did that involved Emily that made her leave Cabracadabra.
Mr. Peanutbutter points out, that BoJack is a damaged person battling a lot of demons, and it would mean a lot to him if they mentioned him.
Todd reluctantly agrees. Mr. Peanutbutter announces the “nominees” and he and Todd flee back to his house. However, Mr. Peanutbutter answers the door to find Von Trapp and his followers, and they eerily state that they "know what [he] did."
Thinking he was nominated, BoJack throws a huge party, where he ends up crashing the Tesla he gets from the Oscars into his pool. Mr. Peanutbutter rescues BoJack and tells him what happened. He also informs BoJack he's not nominated for an Oscar. BoJack is deflated, but Mr. Peanutbutter accidentally mentions afterward Todd's desire to not nominate BoJack and ends the conversation by promising him "none of this matters" and leaving.
In That Went Well, Esteemed Character Actress and Fugitive From The Law Margo Martindale crashes her boat, which she stole from BoJack in Stop the Presses to escape the law, into a cargo ship carrying a large shipment of spaghetti for Sandro's new restaurant. The ships sink and the pasta falls in the ocean. The sun hits a blimp promoting Secretariat, which has the mirror design BoJack insisted on in Stop the Presses, and it begins to heat up the water and boil the pasta.
The news announces that they need a company with lots of pasta strainers, a fleet of cars, and sexy Orcas to help save the underwater city. Mr. Peanutbutter goes to the movies and sees Secretariat, but turns off his phone, making him unreachable for the next two hours. Todd wakes up and learns about the situation.
Todd tries unsuccessfully to reach Mr. Peanutbutter, so Todd and the Orcas head over to the latter's house to get the strainers. Mr. Peanutbutter finishes the movie and sees that he has ninety-eight missed messages. He listens to two of them and returns home. Todd and Mr. Peanutbutter strap the spaghetti strainers to their cars and drive to the disaster site.
Mr. Peanutbutter is hailed as a hero for stopping the "Pasta-Apocalypse."
He announces at dinner with Diane, Princess Carolyn, and her new boyfriend Ralph Stilton that he’s selling Cabracadabra.
Their meeting goes well, but Stefani asks Diane if she'd ever be willing to write an article against Mr. Peanutbutter in the event that he does something problematic, in which Diane replies that she wouldn't write an article, she would talk directly with her husband.
Stefani then emphasizes that Mr. Peanutbutter will probably not listen to Diane, as usual, and that as much as they love each other, he still would never understand her opinion on the matter while she could have actual people read about her thoughts. Diane then later tells Mr. Peanutbutter that she got the job.
Later that night, Diane and Mr. Peanutbutter toast to their accomplishments, while sitting together in their living room. They hear a knock on the door, and Mr. Peanutbutter goes to answer, hoping it's pizza. To his disgust, it's his cold ex-wife, Katrina. She is not excited to see him either, but explains that his heroic deeds have intrigued someone she works for and that she now has an opportunity for him: she asks if he wants to be the governor.
Mr. Peanutbutter begins his campaign for governor, although he cannot run unless they get enough backers to recall the current governor, Woodchuck Coodchuck-Berkowitz.
Diane, deep down, is against Mr. Peanutbutter running for Governor, but she still shows support because she knows he won't get enough backers. However, she inadvertently encourages him to keep trying when she tells him she thinks he would have been a great governor after he says even though he likes Woodchuck, he still wanted to beat him.
Mr. Peanutbutter challenges Woodchuck to a ski-race, where the winner will be named governor. Woodchuck declines due to the sheer ludicrously, although after a month people will not let the challenge go. After Woodchuck says during a press conference that if a state senator was willing to actually petition for an amendment to the constitution that would democratically allow him to bid his governor title on a ski race, then he would accept the challenge.
Katrina winds up doing this, forcing Woodchuck to accept the challenge. However, Mr. Peanutbutter doesn't actually know how to ski, so Katrina sends him to ski school. All the while Diane forced herself to pretend to support her husband.
As Woodchuck is an experienced skier, Mr. Peanutbutter loses the race. However, Todd, due to an incident involving his "drone throne," actually wins the race, but due to him declining the governor position is left open, and to abide by democracy Mr. Peanutbutter and Woodchuck must both run for Governor, much to the exasperation of Diane.
Mr. Peanutbutter did so mostly out of vanity, even though he actually liked Woodchuck's policies, but eventually dropped out and endorsed Woodchuck. Katrina replaced him as a candidate with Jessica Biel (his other ex-wife), who went on to lose to Woodchuck.
In The Light Bulb Scene, BoJack finishes the scene he started shooting earlier from Philbert, but afterward, he tries to express concern to Flip about his character. Just then, Mr. Peanutbutter interrupts them. BoJack then asks why the set looks like his house. Flip tells him he's never been to his house—it's supposed to represent how John Philbert feels: spare and lonely.
Mr. Peanutbutter says it looks like David Boreanaz's house, and Flip reveals their set designer went on a tour there once. Mr. Peanutbutter then tells BoJack he's playing Julius Caesar on the stage next door for a short film. Flip leaves before BoJack can talk to him, but he says they can talk tomorrow.
BoJack and Gina film the nude painting scene, however, they have to cut when Mr. Peanutbutter starts shouting "Oohs" and "Aahs" for support. BoJack tried to protest the scene to Flip, saying if he's trying to get back at him for criticizing the script he shouldn't also punish Gina in the process. Flip tells BoJack that wasn't his intention, he just wants to make a great show, and he's the only one with a problem.

Pickles is excited, however, she tells Mr. Peanutbutter a wise person in the bathroom gave advice that makes her worry they're moving too fast, and they should wait a little bit before going on their next date. Mr. Peanutbutter accepts, but Pickles decides to still go with him to the desert—just not as a date. The two decide since they're both going they'll carpool in his limo.
During the limo ride to the desert, Mr. Peanutbutter asks the driver to turn off the romantic music and put something less romantic on. She turns on a podcast which happens to be Diane's for GirlCroosh, making things awkward, especially when she brings up Mr. Peanutbutter dating Pickles, and how she's half his age.

As Mr. Peanutbutter and Pickles eat a large plate of spaghetti together, they both start to confess things that they'd normally not say on a date. However, Mr. Peanutbutter accidentally says that he still has feelings for Diane. This puts a damper on the mood, and Pickles says that they should just finish their meal and then head to watch the explosion.

Princess Carolyn tells BoJack that she'll be back tomorrow and that she's just taking care of some family stuff.
Later, Princess Carolyn gets another phone call from Mr. Peanutbutter. He asks her if he should improvise the script Flip is writing and Princess Carolyn tells him no but he thinks she is saying yes.

Katrina stands alone on BoJack's deck. Mr. Peanutbutter jumps out of the pool and goes to talk to her, saying the conga line leader led them all into the pool. An annoyed Katrina tells him she wants to leave, saying she's not having fun because she doesn't know anyone at the party, but instead Mr. Peanutbutter makes her talk to BoJack, who leaves her too after realizing he needs a Halloween costume.
Mr. Peanutbutter goes back to Katrina, telling her he got distracted by some guys with an Ouija board. A bitter Katrina tells him while he was gone, Ben Stein introduced her to Tim Allen. They talked for ten minutes about how the government is using their money. She brings up that now that they are in a new tax bracket, maybe they should pay attention more to how the government is using their money.
Mr. Peanutbutter is shocked that she learned all this from talking to Tim Allen for ten minutes, but Katrina angrily says he left her alone for an hour and a half. Mr. Peanutbutter guesses time flies when you're having fun. Katrina snaps and angrily shouts "I AM NOT HAVING FUN," which interrupts the party.
Katrina yells at Mr. Peanutbutter for leaving her alone. She says she asked one thing from him, and he never listens. Mr. Peanutbutter assures her he'll never leave her alone again, but Katrina storms off saying she wants to be alone now and tells him to have fun with his hippie liberal friends.

They arrive at BoJack's house. BoJack, annoyed, questions what they're doing here. Mr. Peanutbutter says that they're here for the Halloween party that he's had for the last eleven years, as BoJack always says at the end of the parties to do it again next year.
Princess Carolyn answers the door to find three teenage Trick-or-Treaters. She refuses to give them candy because they are too old to be trick or treating and too young to attend the adult Halloween party.

Because Princess Carolyn doesn't give them any candy, thirteen-year-old Todd, Emily and a friend of theirs teepee BoJack's house.

Diane is upset because she has to explain her costume to everyone over and over. Mr. Peanutbutter asks if she wants to leave, but she says no, insisting she's fun.
Later, Diane asks if they can go soon, because being around so many famous people is making her nervous. Mr. Peanutbutter instead encourages her to go talk to BoJack, who just got a phone call from his mother, and is asking if it could wait.
BoJack is still on the phone with his mom. He's saying to her "What do you mean, a duel? You mean like, like a duel, a duel?" After seeing Diane, he puts his mom on hold.
He immediately guesses what Diane's costume too, and in an annoyed tone asks what she wants.

Diane says she's good in small groups and shouts that she hates parties, which interrupts the party.
She tells him it's too much pressure to try to be as fun as his ex-wives, and she runs out of the house.
The party has ended and in their car, Diane apologizes to Mr. Peanutbutter for ruining another Halloween for him. Mr. Peanutbutter says she didn't, and that he loves her and wants to know the real her. He's glad he knows she hates parties and they won't ever have that argument ever again.

BoJack answers the doorbell, and to his utter dismay finds Mr. Peanutbutter and Pickles, and a crowd of party guests lined up behind them. They all barge in.
A drunk BoJack is sitting with Mr. Peanutbutter and Pickles. He asks them if they remember the time one woman freaked out because she saw a mummy. Mr. Peanutbutter says that was his ex-wife, Jessica Biel.
BoJack comments he's brought so many ex-wives and girlfriends over the years it's hard to keep track, a comments Pickles doesn't seem to appreciate. He excuses himself to go run the costume contest. Mr. Peanutbutter tells Pickles he can't believe that they've been having this party since 1993, to which Pickles exclaims that was the year she was born.
Diane wants to leave but is her car is trapped between two vehicles. Todd says that one of those vehicles is his car. He explains it's the company car, and it matches his hat. He tosses her the keys and tells her to take it for a spin.
A drunk Pickles goes up to Diane and tells Diane that it's okay if she's jealous because she's definitely not jealous of her. Diane says she isn't jealous either and leaves. Mr. Peanutbutter tells Pickles that that's just Diane and that she's no fun. Pickles is getting annoyed he keeps bringing up all his ex-wives. Mr. Peanutbutter then realizes that all of his ex's used to be fun, but turned bitter and cruel after being with him but can't figure out the common denominator.
Diane returns and is now looking for the owner of a blue Tesla. She runs into BoJack, and the two are tense around each other now due to the submarine scene Diane wrote for BoJack in the previous episode. BoJack brings this up but denies to Diane he wants to talk about it. When she walks away, he swallows a couple of his painkillers for his back and says this party sucks.
Pickles is dancing on the coffee table when Mr. Peanutbutter comes to apologize for talking about his ex-wives. She cheerfully says it's fine, but starts to sound upset when she talks about his ex-wives and how Diane is here.
Diane, who now has a bunch of car keys, is still trying to get her car out and calling people to move their cars. Mr. Peanutbutter tells Pickles they should leave. Pickles tearfully shouts at him that she is having fun, which interrupts the party. She runs off crying.
Mr. Peanutbutter is standing outside the bathroom, trying to get Pickles to come out. Diane walks up to him and asks what happened. He tells Diane that he keeps taking amazing women and ruining them. Diane says that she isn't ruined, and he says that his problem is that he doesn't listen.
She says that he keeps dating women in their twenties, so they aren't fully formed yet—he doesn't ruin them they just grow up. Mr. Peanutbutter asks how he should fix that. Diane says he either needs to date older woman or grow up himself, or his girlfriends will keep outgrowing him. She walks into the bathroom to talk to Pickles.
Pickles is hungover and sitting in the bathtub. Diane gives her some water and tells her she understands that it's hard to be the new girlfriend. Pickles wonders if she's a rebound. Diane says that she was a rebound, but Mr. Peanutbutter loved her unconditionally for ten years.
She tells Pickles Mr. Peanutbutter is fully devoted to whoever he is in a serious romantic relationship with and she tells Pickles that she's that girl now. Pickles reconciles with Mr. Peanutbutter, and Diane leaves, saying she's gonna take someone's helicopter home-seeing that she is unable to reach her car.
Mr. Peanutbutter suggests to Pickles they go home, but Pickles wants to go to another party after they go home and change costumes. She takes a selfie with Mr. Peanutbutter and happily exclaims that she never wants to grow up. Mr. Peanutbutter laughs nervously at this.
In Ancient History, Mr. Peanutbutter visits Princess Carolyn to VIM and tells her that since season one of Philbert has wrapped, he wants to auction a greeting card, which says, "Happy Birthday Dad" with a father dog and his kids—for a movie, Birthday Dad. Princess Carolyn is understandably confused, but says that she'll look into getting the film rights. However, she realizes that she's going to have to talk to Ralph again. Princess Carolyn then meets with Ralph to discuss the idea.
After the premiere, Mr. Peanutbutter asks Pickles where she went, because she only stayed to watch ten minutes of the show. Pickles explains she had to text her friend, and it was weird to watch her sweetheart boyfriend play a mean cop. Noticing that Mr. Peanutbutter is upset, Pickles vows to go home and watch the entire season of the show, even if it kills her because she really hates it.
Mr. Peanutbutter then offers to drive Diane home since she lost her parking ticket. Mr. Peanutbutter and Diane arrive at her apartment. She compliments his performance on Philbert. He thanks her and says they got picked up for more episodes, but Diane reveals she isn't going back to Philbert. She wonders why Mr. Peanutbutter does things for her because she's such a disaster, but Mr. Peanutbutter says she's just Diane and that he'd do anything for her. Diane invites Mr. Peanutbutter to come into her apartment.
Philbert picks up the landline phone in his bedroom, where he gets the news that the police chief was murdered. When Sassy asks him why he still has a landline, he says it was his wife's, and Fritz is seen strangling her. He tells Sassy to get dressed so they can get to the bottom of this because this times it's "personnel."
Flip yells cut. BoJack asks if he's supposed to say "personal," but Flip says that's cliched and clarifies that it's "personnel," not "personal." He also tells Mr. Peanutbutter his strangling doesn't look real enough.
In his drug-induced hallucination BoJack walks through the set when he's once again transported to the empty set and golden staircase he saw earlier. He rubs his eyes and he's back in reality. He tries to eavesdrop on Flip and Princess Carolyn but Mr. Peanutbutter arrives. He tells Mr. Peanutbutter he thinks someone is hiding something. Mr. Peanutbutter thinks he knows about something between him and Diane, but BoJack doesn't.
At night, BoJack is in bed with Gina. He tells her the whole thing is rotten. In reality, he's actually on the Philbert set. Flip tells BoJack to stop calling her "Gina," as the character's name is Sassy. After Sassy goes to bed, the real Fritz shows up and cocks his gun at Philbert, and then threatens to shoot Sassy. Philbert uses his landline phone to hit Fritz in the face. Fritz escapes by jumping out the window. Sassy wakes up, and Philbert tells her the pieces are starting to fit together.
BoJack realizes that all his suspects: Flip, Princess Carolyn, Diane, and Mr. Peanutbutter, revolve around the show—developing the conspiracy theory the whole show was created to reveal his secrets. BoJack tells the production assistant to write all this down. She tells him she actually came to take him to set, which BoJack thought he was on.
On set, Sassy tries to fight off Philbert, but he pins her down and begins violently strangling her. Flip yells cut, and tells Mr. Peanutbutter that's what real strangling looks like.
Gina begins to storm out, and tells BoJack to stay away from her, and get help, or not, because she doesn't care anymore. She leaves, and BoJack swallows a few more pills.
On set, BoJack is still strangling Gina, even though the scene is over. Princess Carolyn reminds him of this. Mr. Peanutbutter tells Flip he thinks he's actually strangling her. Flip tells the cameraman to turn the camera back in.
As Gina is gasping for breath, Mr. Peanutbutter intervenes. He sternly tells BoJack "OK, that's enough." Mr. Peanutbutter and a few crew members then pull BoJack off of her. Gina's eyes are watery and bloodshot, and she has dark red bruises around her neck. As BoJack is struggling against the crew members, Gina says "What the fuck is wrong with you?" Thus ending their relationship.
In The Stopped Show, Mr. Peanutbutter goes to visit Diane, wanting to talk about how they had sex after the Philbert premier. He feels guilty about cheating on Pickles, he hasn't told her yet, and tells Diane he was hoping she could break the news to Pickles—because he's not good at giving bad news and she is.
Diane refuses to do this, saying it isn't right that his ex-wife should explain to his girlfriend, that he cheated on her with his ex-wife.
She says she felt really shitty after he left that night, but when Mr. Peanutbutter assumes he made her feel that way, she rants about how she always feels like garbage. Mr. Peanutbutter explains this is the first time he’s ever felt that way, and doesn’t know how to handle it—to which Diane retorts back that he should feel that way, the two then get up in each other's faces as they argue, before making out and beginning to have sex again.
After Mr. Peanutbutter and Diane have finished up having sex, as they get dressed Mr. Peanutbutter says he'll talk to Pickles, and tell her he and Diane are getting back together. However, Diane tells him she doesn't want to get back together with him, even though he pleads that he still loves her.
Later, at Elefante, Mr. Peanutbutter tells Pickles he needs to talk to her, which upsets her, but she assures him whatever happen—she won’t stop loving him. Mr. Peanutbutter tries to tell her the truth about him cheating on her with Diane, but instead, he proposes to her.
In A Horse Walks Into Rehab, Princess Carolyn then gets a call from Mr. Peanutbutter. Mr. Peanutbutter then tells Princess Carolyn, that the filming for Birthday Dad is going well. However, his model helicopter crashed into the water tower, on the set of former VJ Downtown Julie Brown's new puppet show. He says the flooding ruined Julie Brown's new vintage dress she just bought and ruined the big finale of the show where her puppet plays Beethoven's fifth on the bongos. Princess Carolyn tells him she'll be right down, to help.
In The New Client, Mr. Peanutbutter is with Princess Carolyn and Flea Daniels reviewing a scene for his upcoming movie Birthday Dad. Much to Flea Daniels' annoyance, Mr. Peanutbutter is saying that his face does not look like the face of a trustworthy birthday dad, but instead his face looks like the face of someone who did something terrible, i.e cheat on his girlfriend with his ex-wife a few times, but instead of confessing he proposes to her and now they’re engaged.
Mr. Peanutbutter asks if Flea Daniels can see the guilt on his face. Princess Carolyn, who was asleep for most of this, asks if Birthday Dad cheated on his girlfriend. Mr. Peanutbutter tells her that it just looks like he did, and they have to re-edit the scene. Flea Daniels tells Mr. Peanutbutter that they’re not going to re-edit the scene because he's already been dragging it out for the longest time, with his ridiculous demands. Flea Daniels subsequently pulls the plug on Birthday Dad, much to Mr. Peanutbutter's dismay, and tells him to go home.
When Princess Carolyn tries to leave, Mr. Peanutbutter asks her if she wants to keep hanging out, and pitches her movie ideas inspired by greeting cards. Princess Carolyn tells him that she needs to get home to her new baby and Mr. Peanutbutter congratulates her on the new baby saying that it could be a movie idea, but Princess Carolyn leaves anyway.
Later that night, Mr. Peanutbutter goes home to find Pickles talking to the “Pickle Pack” on her phone. He enters their home and greets Pickles with a hug, while also greeting her “Pickle Pack,” encouraging them to keep up the good work with their “charming memes." Mr. Peanutbutter goes on to say that he loves the meme where the boyfriend is looking at another lady and the girlfriend turns to him with an expression of tremendous pain asking how could a man who claims to love her betray her, saying that it’s a very sad meme.
After signing off, Pickles asks Mr. Peanutbutter what’s going on, saying that he’s been acting different. She goes on to say that she noticed it on the night of the Philbert premiere when Mr. Peanutbutter came home late smelling like Diane, and then things went back to normal, but then he started acting weird again shortly before he proposed, when he came home smelling like Diane again.
It was also shortly before BoJack went to rehab. Pickles goes on to say that she can tell that Mr. Peanutbutter feels guilty. Mr. Peanutbutter confesses that he does feel guilty but before he could say why, Pickles interrupts him saying that he must feel guilty because BoJack is in rehab and he quickly agrees with her. Pickles encourages Mr. Peanutbutter to visit BoJack in rehab if that’s the thing that’s been weighing on his mind, and Mr. Peanutbutter reaffirms that BoJack being in rehab is the only thing on his mind.
The following morning, Mr. Peanutbutter visits BoJack at the rehab center, much to BoJack’s chagrin. Mr. Peanutbutter meets Doctor Champ who tells Mr. Peanutbutter that Mr. Peanutbutter is the first friend BoJack invited to the friends and family meeting, but Mr. Peanutbutter says he doesn’t remember getting an invitation. When Doctor Champ warns everybody that the event will be starting in five minutes, Mr. Peanutbutter encourages BoJack to hurry so they get good seats.
While sitting in a circle listening to Doug tell a story about lying, cheating, and stealing, Mr. Peanutbutter asks if Doug ever told his wife about the cheating. When Doctor Champ tells Mr. Peanutbutter that they don’t interrupt others while sharing, Mr. Peanutbutter tells Doctor Champ that he was just looking for a little context, and BoJack sarcastically tells Mr. Peanutbutter to look for the context in his car.
Mr. Peanutbutter tells Doug that in order to move forward with his wife he needs to be honest with her. Although Doug agrees with him, Mr. Peanutbutter backtracks saying that confessing to cheating might just be his guilt talking and maybe it would be better if he “let sleeping dogs lie." Mr. Peanutbutter proposes a scenario in which Doug’s fiancé, whom he calls “Pickles," doesn’t know that he cheated and she’s happy not knowing, asking if confessing would just cause additional pain, to which the other people in the room agree with him.
When Doug asks if it’s better not to tell his wife about him cheating on her, Mr. Peanutbutter gets mad and tells Doug that not telling her would be really convenient for him, going on to call him stupid selfish and inconsiderate. Although it makes Doug cry, Doug admits that he needed to hear it and gives Mr. Peanutbutter a hug and then thanks him.
BoJack then goes and finds Mr. Peanutbutter, and tells him he doesn't know what's going on with him, though he is sure either he or Doug cheated on Pickels. BoJack says he understands what it's like to have guilt bottled up inside you, and not burden other people with it. He goes on to say you think you are protecting them, but it comes out in other ways, and it infects everything. Mr. Peanutbutter says he needs a drink and asks if there is a bar. Although off-screen, BoJack then reminds Mr. Peanutbutter that he was in a rehab facility, and Mr. Peanutbutter subsequently leaves.
BoJack goes on to tell Mr. Peanutbutter that he might believe he’s being selfless by not confessing his guilt, but bottling it up makes everything worse because the guilt will eventually come out in other ways and it will negatively impact everything. Mr. Peanutbutter simply says he could use a drink asking if there was a bar nearby. Although off-screen, BoJack reminds Mr. Peanutbutter that he was in a rehab facility, and Mr. Peanutbutter subsequently leaves.
Sometime later, Mr. Peanutbutter, Princess Carolyn and Karen Kitada are in a meeting with Pinky Penguin trying to pitch Birthday Dad as a TV show and Pinky Penguin takes it.
In Surprise!, it is shown that sometime after Mr. Peanutbutter asked Pickles to move in with him, Pickles live streams a video showing off the house and Mr. Peanutbutter shows off the thunder room. It is also shown how nervous Mr. Peanutbutter was after he proposed to Pickles and how happy she was not knowing that he had previously cheated on her twice with his ex-wife Diane.
At some point, Todd planned to surprise Pickles and Mr. Peanutbutter with a surprise wedding, and he sends them out of the house for six hours to watch a play. After the play, Pickles livestreams her reaction saying that the play had so many dysfunctional relationships, and Mr. Peanutbutter noticeably gets nervous when Pickles says that she’s glad that they don’t have a relationship like that. When they get home, Mr. Peanutbutter asks Pickles to turn off the Livestream because he needs to discuss something with her privately.
When they enter the house, Pickles tries to turn on the lights by yelling “Lights On!," but before she can, Mr. Peanutbutter interrupts her and tells her that what he’s about to confess is so shameful he can only do it under the cover of shadow. When Pickles tells him that’s silly, she yells for the lights to turn on and Mr. Peanutbutter blurts out that he cheated on her. At the same time, people who had arrived at Mr. Peanutbutter's house for the surprise wedding jump out and yell “Surprise!” but they quickly retreat once Mr. Peanutbutter confesses his adultery, much to Pickles' shock.
When Mr. Peanutbutter tries asking Pickles if she heard someone say something, Pickles tells Mr. Peanutbutter not to change the subject and tearfully asks if Mr. Peanutbutter truly cheated on her. He apologizes to her, and when asked how he could do that he tells her that it was the worst mistake of his life. He goes on to say that he was in the thunder room for months trying to swallow his shame. He notices that the thunder room door is open and he closes it unknowingly trapping Eduardo inside.
Pickles tells Mr. Peanutbutter that just because he feels bad it doesn’t make it okay. While Pickles continues talking, neither she or Mr. Peanutbutter notice the people in their house. When Pickles reasons that she should tell her friend Ilana about Mr. Peanutbutter cheating on her, Mr. Peanutbutter begs her not to tell the Ilanas and Pickles tells Mr. Peanutbutter that she’s going to tell everybody because she’s a Gemini.
Mr. Peanutbutter tells Pickles to think of his family because they need him to be strong as his older brother Captain Peanutbutter confessed to him that he feels like he’s in a loveless marriage with his wife. Pickles agrees with Mrs. Captain Peanutbutter’s sentiments saying that every time she gets trapped in a conversation with Captain Peanutbutter she thinks if she was married to him she would "gnaw her hand off just to get the ring off her body." This starts an argument where Mr. Peanutbutter says that at least no one in his family has anger issues, saying that Pickles’ father Franco is "a hothead with a little pug complex," and that her mother more than likely provokes him on purpose, suggesting that they “get off“ on it.
Mr. Peanutbutter also starts ranting about Greg, a man he met once at a gas station, saying that he sucks too.
When Pickles says that she’s going to talk to her subscribers, Mr. Peanutbutter begs her not to tweed feed this information. Pickles tells Mr. Peanutbutter that the “Pickle Pack” is a part of everything she does, saying that her subscribers are with her through thick and thin. She throws her engagement ring back at Mr. Peanutbutter, yelling "unsubscribe!" and runs upstairs to the bedroom crying.
Mr. Peanutbutter remains downstairs trying to get himself a glass of water while at the same time not noticing Princess Carolyn and Todd crawling around his kitchen floor with Ruthie. When Mr. Peanutbutter hears her crying from downstairs he decides to go talk to her and runs upstairs while everyone except Princess Carolyn, Todd, and Ruthie quickly leave the house.
When Mr. Peanutbutter tries to talk to Pickles she quickly kicks him out. Mr. Peanutbutter returns to his kitchen sulking and eats ice cream while not noticing Princess Carolyn and Todd hiding behind his couch. When Pickles tells Mr. Peanutbutter to take her to the park he agrees. When she changes her mind, he agrees to make Pickles her favorite drink. While he’s in the kitchen making her boba tea, the Boba maker asks if he wants whip cream and Mr. Peanutbutter stands there thinking.
Eventually he goes back to the upstairs bedroom not noticing BoJack, Ruthie, Princess Carolyn or Diane, and asks Pickles if she wants whip cream with her drink, not realizing that Pickles was actually in the bathroom and wearing headphones. When Mr.Peanutbutter hears Ruthie knock over a lamp he says that he hears the note and he will be back with her drink.
Mr. Peanutbutter returns with two different types of boba, one with whip cream and one without after Pickles gets out of the bath. He gives her the version without the whip cream and Pickles says now she actually wants whip cream. When Mr. Peanutbutter tries to give her the version with whip cream he realizes it’s gone. Pickles tells Mr. Peanutbutter that she doesn’t want to be mad at him, and Mr. Peanutbutter says that’s great, going on to say that he knows he caused her pain but he still wants to marry her.
He takes out the engagement ring she threw at him earlier, and asks if she still wants to marry him. Pickles reluctantly takes back the ring saying that she supposes they could put it behind them if it only happened one time. He confesses that he cheated on her twice a few months ago with Diane, much to Pickles’ grief, and she throws the ring again and start screaming at such a high frequency that the glass window shatters. Pickles runs out of the house and onto the backyard patio and sits by the fire.
Mr. Peanutbutter stays in the upstairs bedroom watching Pickles sulk. While playing with his coin sorter, Mr. Peanutbutter says he wishes he can throw his problems in the coin sorter, and have it sorted all out for him. He also says he knows it doesn't really work that way. BoJack, pretending to be the coin sorter, tells Mr. Peanutbutter to go to Pickles. Mr. Peanutbutter says that he thinks he screwed things up really badly and maybe he should just wait for Pickles to come to him.
BoJack, still pretending to be the coin sorter, tells Mr. Peanutbutter to go to Pickles anyway and Mr. Peanutbutter agrees. Diane, while pretending to be the thermostat, tells Mr. Peanutbutter not talk so much. She goes on to say that Mr. Peanutbutter tries to solve problems or make them go away which comes off as dismissive, but if he wants to solve the problem he has to really listen to Pickles and Mr. Peanutbutter agrees and leaves the house to talk to Pickles.
Mr. Peanutbutter leaves the house and approaches Pickles. When Pickles said she doesn’t want to be mad at him, Mr. Peanutbutter begins to say something but he stops himself, and lets Pickles continue. Pickles continues to say, that even though Mr. Peanutbutter did something stupid, she is the one to feel bad and it’s not fair. Mr. Peanutbutter tries to say something but again restrains himself. Pickles tells Mr. Peanutbutter that she still loves him and wants to marry him, but he can’t do things that hurt her because it’s not okay, and Mr. Peanutbutter silently agrees by nodding his head.
Pickles goes on to say if they carry on like before, and pretend nothing happened she’s going to feel stupid, saying that they can’t just go back and Mr. Peanutbutter nods his head in silent agreement. When Pickles asks how can they make things right, Mr. Peanutbutter says he wants them to be even somehow. Pickles tells Mr. Peanutbutter the only way for them to be even is if Pickles got to sleep with someone else and Mr. Peanutbutter quickly agrees.
She goes on to say Mr. Peanutbutter, cant do hurtful things anymore, because it's not OK. He silently nods and listens. Mr. Peanutbutter says he wants them to be even somehow. Pickles then says that can only happen if she also sleeps with someone else. Mr. Peanutbutter says they need to think of someone. Pickles suggests her high school boyfriend Buzzy.
Pickles then thinks it over again. She says Mr. Peanutbutter doesn't even know Buzzy. She says knowing the person is what would make them even. Pickles then suggest sleeping with both Buzzy and Tyler from Soul Cycle. Mr. Peanutbutter sounds shocked at the idea of her sleeping with two people. Pickles then says they can keep brainstorming. Mr. Peanutbutter says if they keep brainstorming, they can come up with a guy for Pickles to cheat on him with and things can be totally even, and everything can go back to normal and they can get married. They hear the doorbell ring.
Diane then comes to the front door and apologizes to Pickles for cheating, saying it was her fault, and it'll never happen again. Diane says she probably lost her wallet. She says it was under the bed, in the master suite a year ago, at Mr. Peanutbutter's housewarming party. Diane says if they find it, to mail it to her in Chicago because that's where she lives now.
In A Little Uneven, Is All, Mr. Peanutbutter is filming an episode of Birthday Dad with his costar Melodie and things are going well. As soon as the scene is cut, Mr. Peanutbutter tries to complement Melodie on her acting but she walks away in disgust.
Audrey then approaches Mr. Peanutbutter and asks if he wants some tea. Mr. Peanutbutter says that he does, and Audrey splashes it on his face instead, and Mr. Peanutbutter tells Donna that he needs a new scarf. Princess Carolyn approaches Mr. Peanutbutter, and asks if it's just her or does seem that the cast and crew has really turned on him. Mr. Peanutbutter casually tells Princess Carolyn, that the cast and crew hate him, since word got out that he cheated on his fiancé.
He goes on to say that the people who dislike him the most are young women, much to Princess Carolyn‘s dismay who says that young women are part of their main target demographic for Birthday Dad and she tells him that they need to “juice [his] Q." Mr. Peanutbutter says that the only thing he’s interested in is making things even between him and Pickles.
A flashback shows Mr. Peanutbutter and Pickles telling a man named Carl that since Mr. Peanutbutter cheated on Pickles with his ex-wife, Pickles has to have sex with Carl to level the playing field. Although he doesn’t completely understand what’s going on, he agrees to have sex with Pickles
When Princess Carolyn questions Mr. Peanutbutter about his reputation, he says that he’s not worried about it as he believes that people generally want to like him, and the universe will align in his favor. He goes on to say that if he does nothing then eventually the public will like him again. As he talks to Princess Carolyn, a boom operator flips Mr. Peanutbutter the bird, as he walks past him, and Donna throws a scarf at Mr. Peanutbutter’s face.
A little while later while Mr. Peanutbutter looks through a script while on the set of Birthday Dad, Princess Carolyn approaches him and shows him a meme she made about Mr. Peanutbutter entitled “sad dog" and the different variants of it. Mr. Peanutbutter says that he’s not sad he’s happy and everybody knows that. She insists people will love it, and that love will transfer over to Mr. Peanutbutter.
Pickles then calls him, and he asks how it went with Carl. She tells him that the sex was great, but there was no emotional connection. Mr. Peanutbutter tells her not to beat herself over it, she just met the guy. She elaborates, saying that what was part of the betrayal of Mr. Peanutbutter sleeping with Diane, is that they shared an intimate history.
If they’re really trying to level the playing field, then Pickles having sex with Carl doesn’t count. Mr. Peanutbutter tells Pickles to keep having sex with guys, until she finds someone who she has an intimate connection with. Pickles says that it might take a lot of guys, but she will do it if it will save their marriage. Mr. Peanutbutter responds by saying “that’s my girl," and walks past Princess Carolyn who mistakenly thinks that Mr. Peanutbutter is talking to her.
Sometime later that same day, Mr. Peanutbutter is filming a scene of Birthday Dad, with his costar Melodie. When the scene is cut, Mr. Peanutbutter again tries to complement Melodie but she tells him to “drop dead." Princess Carolyn approaches Mr. Peanutbutter and she is confused when she spots Joey Pogo driving through the set. As he approaches Mr. Peanutbutter and Princess Carolyn, Princess Carolyn pushes Mr. Peanutbutter in front of Joey’s car, and Mr. Peanutbutter is left slightly puzzled when he doesn’t get hit by Joey’s slow moving car.
When Joey yells at Mr. Peanutbutter to get out of the way, Princess Carolyn claims to have watched Mr. Peanutbutter jump in front of the car, saying that Mr. Peanutbutter yelled, “I’m a sad dog” before doing it. She goes on to say that she believes that Mr. Peanutbutter is a really sad dog just like the meme. Soon, the hatred that the cast and crew held for Mr. Peanutbutter quickly turns into pity. Joey tells him life is precious, and that's something he learned in rehab. When a paparazzo tries to ask Mr. Peanutbutter why he tried to kill himself, Princess Carolyn answers that Mr. Peanutbutter is a sad dog. When Mr. Peanutbutter is commended for destigmatizing mental illness, he comments that it all worked out “depressingly."
In The Kidney Stays in the Picture, he sitting at a bar at Elefante when someone off-screen recognizes Mr. Peanutbutter from the "Sad Dog" meme. He is then approached by Joey Pogo. Joey tells Mr. Peanutbutter that he’s been trying to get in touch with him saying that he got a call from a mental health advocacy group, saying that they were “jizzing their pants“ about Mr. Peanutbutter admitting that he struggles with depression. He goes on to say they want to help him share his story with the world much Mr. Peanutbutter’s surprise.
Joey says that he wanted to set up a meeting but his assistant went on strike and he doesn’t know how to use a phone. Mr. Peanutbutter goes on to say even if he had his assistance it wouldn’t be of much use because his representative’s assistants went on strike as well. Joey concludes that there is no way to get in touch and Mr. Peanutbutter says that it’s too bad, as he would have loved to get together.
In The Face of Depression, BoJack is seen at the airport looking at the flight listings and walks past the bar where Joey Pogo is sitting with Mr. Peanutbutter. Mr. Peanutbutter confesses to Joey he isn’t really depressed. However, Joey brings up that he heard people who seem happy are the most depressed. The two realize they’re both pretty happy, which worries them, and they quickly run off to start the tour and get the word out on depression.
They run past BoJack, who is at the Cinnabunny.
BoJack takes a selfie outside of the Capital building and posts it on Instagram, and the first comment is from Mr. Peanutbutter telling him to turn around. Mr. Peanutbutter appears behind him and after BoJack questions why he’s here, he explains he’s the face of depression, to BoJack’s confusion.
Mr. Peanutbutter then takes BoJack to the Smithsonian, where he shows him that his old sweater from Horsin’ Around is on display.
Mr. Peanutbutter then notices the entire kitchen set from Mr. Peanutbutter's House. As the two approach it, BoJack says with a smile "Well looks like you finally got your crossover episode," to Mr. Peanutbutter's utter excitement. BoJack and Mr. Peanutbutter then begin to act out a crossover episode of their shows, but Mr. Peanutbutter gets too emotional over the moment and begins crying, not being able to stay in character for his part.
Mr. Peanutbutter and Pickles talk on the phone. Mr. Peanutbutter tells her other than being away from her he is having the time of his life being depressed. Pickles tells him she slept with a bunch of guys to get even, but none of them were like him and wishes for some sort of possibility to cheat on him with him. Joey then reveals himself to be hanging by a clothes hanger inside the hotel room closet, giving Mr. Peanutbutter an idea.
In Intermediate Scene Study w/ BoJack Horseman, at Mr. Peanutbutter's house, Mr. Peanutbutter is explaining to Pickles and Joey Pogo his plan for getting even with Pickles so that Mr. Peanutbutter and Pickles can get married. Mr. Peanutbutter then gets a phone call with an offer to buy Elefante. Joey offers to go into business with him and Mr. Peanutbutter takes the offer.
In Good Damage, Mr. Peanutbutter shows up in Diane's memories in the form of crude sketches.
In Sunk Cost and All That, Mr. Peanutbutter who is with Max and Paige at Elifino. He tells them he'd be delighted to answer questions about his good friend BoJack. Paige tells her husband they are back from New Mexico and still on the trail of their story. Mr. Peanutbutter tells Max that BoJack sold the restaurant to him and Joey Pogo.
Mr. Peanutbutter gets ready to talk to the reporters but he is interrupted by Joey telling him about a situation in the kitchen. Mr. Peanutbutter heads into the kitchen where he finds out the dishwashers all quit. Pickles and Joey then argue about who's at fault. Pickles then pulls Mr. Peanutbutter aside saying she needs to talk to him.
In the meat locker, Pickles asks how much longer they have to continue working with Joey. Mr. Peanutbutter says he thought she loved Joey. Pickles says she loves his music but not him as a person. Mr. Peanutbutter says he could proposition some young men on set. Pickles then apologizes and says she will try to make this work for their relationship.
Mr. Peanutbutter tells Paige and Max the story about his and Pickles plan to be even with each other due to his infidelity and Max tells him Pickles and Joey are in love. Mr. Peanutbutter then questions this. Max tells him Pickles flirts with Joey and follows him across the restaurant. Paige asks why would Pickles fall for a dashing young Joey when she has sweet, dependable, and boring Mr. Peanutbutter. Paige says she only tolerates him for work otherwise she can't stand him.
Max counters no she is in love with him even though she'd never admitted it to herself. Paige questions about the boy. Max says sure he puts on a good front and puts up a good fight but if Pickles were to confess her love it would drop his heart down an elevator shaft and bring it back up to his throat. Mr. Peanutbutter says he's pretty sure they hate each other.
The reporters then bring their attention back to Sarah Lynn and BoJack's relationship with her and whether it was inappropriate. Mr. Peanutbutter tells them they were thicker than thieves, in fact, they were thieves—and tells the reporters about the time BoJack and Sarah Lynn broke into his and Diane's home and stole their clothes. He also tells them how Diane never got her jacket back and tells them they should ask her about it.
Pickles and Joey come to Mr. Peanutbutter's table and they announce that they have developed feelings for each other and are now going to make love. Mr. Peanutbutter tells them that's great seeing that's just what they wanted.
