Synopsis

Todd organizes a surprise wedding for Pickles and Mr. Peanutbutter, but the party quickly goes off the rails when Mr. Peanutbutter makes a confession.

Plot

Pickles is seen doing various make-up tutorials for her followers and showcasing the events in her life before she met Mr. Peanutbutter. She talks about a break-up, a job interview as a systems analyst, getting fired as a systems analyst, getting a job as an air traffic controller, getting fired from the air traffic controller job, and finally getting a job as a waitress.

She then talks about meeting Mr. Peanutbutter and then announces they have moved in together. The two of them then show off their fancy new smart home, which has a thunder room. Pickles then talks about their engagement, saying Mr. Peanutbutter is still in shock. The camera then pans to Mr. Peanutbutter, who confirms their engagement.

Pickles and Mr. Peanutbutter then talk about a play they saw, which had a lot of dysfunctional relationships, and cheating in it. Pickles says she is glad she and Mr. Peanutbutter aren't like that. Mr. Peanutbutter asks her to turn the livestream off, so he can talk to her privately. Pickles excitedly says, she hopes it's something good. The next time she comes on camera, she tells her followers in tears that the wedding is off. This gets a lot of sad and angry reacts from her followers.

Diane goes to Pastiches to visit BoJack. The groundhog receptionist tells her she is too late, because BoJack has gone to a party for the evening. He gives her the address. Diane then expresses concern, that BoJack might have gone to a party with alcohol. The groundhog explains it is a lame party without alcohol, and BoJack was sent with a trained sober companion, who will keep him out of trouble.

At Mr. Peanutbutter and Pickles' house, BoJack introduces Eduardo the sober companion to Mrs. Captain Peanutbutter and Captain Peanutbutter. He explains Eduardo is here to keep him out of trouble. Captain Peanutbutter asks if Eduardo is one of those fainting goats. Eduardo laughs and says only if he panics.

BoJack interjects that nothing makes Eduardo panic, because he is a trained sober companion. Captain Peanutbutter then starts talking about what makes him panic. He then says he is most of the time, he is an ocean-levels-rising guy. However, sometimes he likes to dwell on the fact, that there will always be invisible walls between himself, and those who claim to know him.

Eduardo admits that's pretty nerve-racking, but as for himself, the only thing that makes him panic is the thought of him drinking again. Captain Peanutbutter raises a toast, to that never happening again, with a bottle of alcohol. Eduardo faints and BoJack sarcastically says that's very helpful. BoJack then thanks Eduardo.

Pickles' parents Franco and Demi, are seen talking to Princess Carolyn, who is holding her daughter Ruthie. Demi tells her husband, nobody wants to hear about his time-traveling orthodontist pitch. Franco then tells his wife she is "lighting a long fuse on a short stick of dynamite." Demi shakes her head at this. She says, "oh, whoop and a big one at that." They both then walk away.

Diane then arrives at Mr. Peanutbutter's house and takes a deep breath, where she runs into Todd at the front door, who is holding a bunch of balloons. Todd then remarks he wasn't expecting to see Diane there. Diane then asks if Todd could go retrieve BoJack and have him come out, so she can talk to him. Todd says he doesn't have time for her "classic Diane wackiness." He hands Diane some of the balloons and says they need to get them to the balloon room.

Diane then sees Princess Carolyn and Ruthie and comments on how cute the baby is. Princess Carolyn says she wasn't going to bring her out, but another nanny quit on her. Todd then assumes Carlotta, the nanny quit in disgrace for not making good airplane noises when feeding Ruthie. Princess Carolyn, sounding irritated, says it's because she felt like she was being watched all day. Todd then says that is impossible, as he is there around the clock, watching her every move; if she was being watched he'd know.

Diane then asks where the balloons should go, and she follows Todd to the balloon room.

Captain Peanutbutter is telling BoJack his fear, of having his spleen up and re-twist itself. BoJack, sounding annoyed, wonders out loud how they are back in a conversation. BoJack says he feels like, "[he] is trying to canoe out to sea, and [he] keeps being pushed back to the same shallow backwater." Diane goes up to BoJack and greets him, and he expresses relief at seeing her, telling her to never leave his side. Diane attempts to tell him something, but she is cut off by Todd, who tells everyone to get in their places.

Diane questions what's happening. Todd tells her, that since the wedding planning was stressing Mr. Peanutbutter out, he thought he would host a surprise wedding. Diane expresses shock at this. Todd elaborates, by saying Pickles loves big surprises and grand gestures, and he wasn't doing anything except staying home and watching Princess Carolyn's terrible nannies.

Diane then asks where Pickles and Mr. Peanutbutter are right now. Todd says he bought them tickets to see Angels in the Outfield. Diane asks if he means the movie. Todd clarifies he means the play, which is six hours long. Diane asks if he means Angels in America. Todd says, whatever it is, after watching a feel-good romantic comedy, that they will be in a great mood for the surprise wedding.

Diane then pulls BoJack aside and blurts out that she's moving. He then gives her encouragement, saying that's great because her apartment is a dump. He says he hopes she's not moving to Echo Park because then they'll never see each other. She then reveals she is actually moving to Chicago.

Todd announces Pickles and Mr. Peanutbtter are home. Diane panics and heads upstairs. BoJack follows her up the stairs and asks why Chicago. Todd excitedly tells everyone to hide and stay quiet.

There is then a transition back to the beginning of the episode, with Pickles and Mr. Peanutbutter standing outside. Mr. Peanutbutter then tells Pickles to turn off the livestream as he has something to tell her. Pickles says she hopes it's something good, and Mr. Peanutbutter nervously says it isn't, as they enter the house.

Mr. Peanutbutter says, what he is about to confess brings him shame, so he'd rather say it in the dark. Pickles then tells him not to be silly and commands the house to turn the lights on. The party-goers are seen in the background peeking out from their hiding spots. They then yell, "SURPRISE!" Mr. Peanutbutter blurts out that he cheated on Pickles. There are "shushing" noises heard in the background. The party-goers then retreat.

Mr. Peanutbutter wonders if somebody said something. Pickles tells him not to change the subject. Mr. Peanutbutter then tries to apologize for his infidelity and says it was the worst mistake of his life. He tells her he once played Twister with Brian Singer, at Kevin Spacey's party, for Andy Dick's parole.

Mr. Peanutbutter tells her, he has been in the thunder room for months, trying to swallow his shame. He says he has been so racked with guilt, he left the door to the thunder room open. He then commands the door to close. Eduardo ends up being trapped in the thunder room.

Pickles then says just because he feels guilty, does not make it OK. The guests are seen in their various hiding places, trying to sneak around. Pickles says it is just like the time she didn't know there was going to be an encore at a Lady Gaga concert. She says the news makes her feel sad, hurt, and confused. Mr. Peanutbutter sighs sadly.

Pickles then asks why is she even talking to Mr. Peanutbutter. She then says she is going to call her best friend Illana. Ilana Smith then looks around nervously for her phone, as she knows that'll give her away. Her phone is sitting on the end table. Pickles then questions if that Ilana can really relate to her anymore. She then says ever since best friend Ilana, got her new Sunday-to-Thursday job, she's become a real "See-You-Next Friday." Pickles then says she relates to Ilana Benson better, because she has nothing else going on.

Mr. Peanutbutter begs her not to tell the Ilanas about this. Pickles says she is telling everyone about this, because she's a Gemini. Mr. Peanutbutter then says to think of his family, as they need him to be strong right now. Mr. Peanutbutter goes on to say Captain Peanutbutter feels like he is trapped in a loveless marriage with his wife. Captain looks at Mrs. Captain Peanutbutter guiltily. Pickles then asks who could really blame her. Pickles say every time she gets into a conversation with Captain she thinks, "if I were married to this guy I'd gnaw my own hand off just to get the ring off my body."

Mr. Peanutbutter retorts that at least no one in his family has anger issues. Pickles says her father has come a long way in his anger management classes. Mr. Peanutbutter then says Franco "is a hothead, with a little pug complex." He then goes on to say everyone always makes excuses for Franco's outbursts. This angers Franco, who is listening in on the conversation. More "shushing" noises are heard in the background, and Demi restrains Franco from giving away their hiding place.

He then goes on to talk about how Demi tries to provoke her husband. He then says he thinks the couple gets off on that, and they make everyone else unwilling participants to their kinky foreplay. Pickles says those are her parents, and she doesn't want to think about it.

Mr. Peanutbutter then brings up Greg, the guy he met at the gas station. Pickles asks why is he bringing Greg up, and Mr. Peanutbutters says he doesn't know, but Greg sucks too. Greg is then seen in the background with tears in his eyes.

Pickles then says she knows who she needs right now. Mr. Peanutbutter begs Pickles not to TweedFeed about this, saying he understands the Pickle Pack is how she processes pain. Pickles says he is wrong, and the Pickle Pack is everything. She then gives examples of her subscribers being with her through thick and thin. She then yells "UNSUBSCRIBE" at Mr. Peanutbutter, and then throwing her engagement ring back on his face. Pickles the runs upstairs crying. Mr. Peanutbutter stares at the ring in his hand.

Meanwhile, BoJack and Diane are upstairs in the master bedroom. Diane grunts as she opens the window. BoJack says, he never thought tying sheets into a rope and escaping from windows, would have so much practical application, in his everyday life. Mr. Peanutbutter and Pickles are then upstairs, and their shadows are seen in the hall. Mr. Peanutbutter is telling Pickles to wait, and she is telling him to stay. Pickles then voice commands the bedroom lights to turn on. BoJack and Diane duck down and crawl into the walk-in closet.

Pickles stands by the bed crying, on the opposite side of the room as Diane and BoJack. As she enters the closet from the door on the opposite side of the bed, BoJack and Diane come out crawling through the same door they came in from, and wedge themselves under the bed. Pickles comes out of the closet and flops herself on to the bed while livestreaming.

In tears, she tells the Pickle Pack that the wedding is off. BoJack and Diane peak out from under the bed, as Pickles is crying, and Diane gets a look of guilt on her face. BoJack looks at Diane like he knows what happened.

Downstairs, a remorseful Mr. Peanutbutter is in the kitchen, and he asks the freezer to dispense ice. Princess Carolyn who is holding Ruthie in her car seat and Todd crawl around the island, while Mr. Peanutbutter makes his way to the sink. Mr. Peanutbutter hears the sound of Pickles crying from upstairs, and runs up the staircase, saying out loud he needs to talk to her with concern in his voice.

Various guests pop out from their hiding places, and there is a universal sigh of relief. Everyone then makes a mad dash for the door. Princess Carolyn says they should hit the bricks. Todd then gestures to Ruthie's car seat, pointing out she is missing.

Meanwhile upstairs, Pickles is livestreaming and she's telling the Pickle Pack she's been hurt by guys before, as she walks towards the door. BoJack's head is seen peeking out from under the bed. One of her followers tells her she looks pretty when she cries, and she thanks them. Mr. Peanutbutter enters the room and Pickles glares at him. She tells him to leave her alone, and he tries to say something, Pickles then cuts him off saying one of her subscribers asked for a makeup tutorial. She then says that the tutorial is that they are never making up, as she shoves Mr. Peanutbutter out of the room, and commands the door to slam in his face.

Pickles then goes back into the closet, and says she'll give a tutorial on how to look like a "crying, pugly freak." Diane from under the bed turns on Pickles' live stream on her phone. While the livestream is going on, BoJack whispers to Diane asking her why Chicago. BoJack asks what the draw is, the rampant gun violence or whether Diane likes seeing improv actors who aren't good enough for L.A. BoJack then asks her if there is a Guy. BoJack then teases Diane, asking who her suitor and gentleman caller are. Diane replies, "Guy."

BoJack misunderstands and asks what her guy's name is. Diane explains Guy is the name of the guy she's not moving to Chicago for. BoJack then asks what the name of the Guy she is moving to Chicago for. Diane says she thinks they are done here. They start to come out from under the bed and see Ruthie sitting on the carpet.

Back downstairs Todd and Princess Carolyn are looking for Ruthie around the sofa in the living room. Princess Carolyn scolds Todd, saying it's all his fault. She says Todd scared of every nanny with his creepy monitoring. Todd retorts, he wouldn't have to, if she hadn't hired a bunch of quacks. They hear Mr. Peanutbutter coming back down, and Princess Carolyn tells Todd to duck.

Mr. Peanutbutter whimpers sadly as he walks towards the kitchen. Princess Carolyn expresses her annoyance with all the mid-century furniture being so close to the ground. She then asks if no one had to hide in the '50s. Hearing the words "close to the ground" gives Todd an idea, he says they have to think like a baby. Todd then puts himself in the mindset of a baby. He says babies have no jobs, love being wrapped up in hoodies, and when they are feeling low they like to get to a higher place. Todd then excitedly figures that Ruthie is a climber.

Todd then crawls on the floor, panting. In the foreground, Mr. Peanutbutter is seen holding a tub of ice cream sadly. Todd spots fresh drool on the stairs, he licks it with his finger and concludes that it's Ruthie. Todd licks the drool a few more times, and Princess Carolyn says they should go upstairs. Mr. Peanutbutter, depressed, eats his ice cream.

In the bedroom, Ruthie has escaped from under the bed. BoJack grunts and grabs her, pulling her back under the bed. Pickles is seen standing by the bed and she walks back into the closet. She asks her followers if it's obvious she can't marry Mr. Peanutbutter now.

BoJack snatches Diane's phone, and types in the live chat, that Pickles should ask Mr. Peanutbutter to take her to the park, and far away from the mouse. Pickles then questions what mouse. BoJack then types something, which Pickles says is a great idea. She walks out of the closet and commands the front door to open.

Princess Carolyn and Todd are seen at the door. They both gasp, caught off guard. Ruthie then crawls out from under the bed. BoJack grabs the carpet and pulls her back under the bed. Pickles yells out to Mr. Peanutbutter to talk her to the park. He yells back that he can do that, and Pickles tells him she'll be right down. Todd looks relived that Ruthie wasn't discovered by Pickles, while Princess Carolyn looks worried.

Pickles then asks the Pickle Pack, to help her choose the perfect outfit, for her outing with Mr. Peanutbutter. BoJack finds a frisbee under the bed. He puts Ruthie on it, and she slides midway across the floor. Pickles then goes outside of the closet and asks what if Mr. Peanutbutter says all the right things and she forgives him. She then says she can't make it that easy for him. Princess Carolyn pushes Todd into the room. Ruthie then ducks, because she thinks Pickles is going to squish her. Pickles is completely oblivious to Ruthie being in front of her, engrossed in her livestream.

Pickles gets another idea from another follower named MarciFartz. She then calls out to Mr. Peanutbutter to cancel the park outing, and meet her in the closet. BoJack then mutters that MarciFratz should stay out of his shit. Princess Carolyn leaps into the room, grabbing her daughter. Ruthie starts to crawl away, but Princess Carolyn grabs her. The mother and daughter look at each other and smile.

Mr. Peanutbutter comes upstairs, and Pickles commands him to make her favorite beverage, the exact way she likes it. Mr, Peanutbutter obediently says he'll do it right away.

Diane and BoJack come out from under the bed. Pickles says, of course, he'll make her drink perfect because he's perfect. Diane and BoJack make their way to the side of the bed Princess Carolyn and Ruthie are hiding. All four of them go into the closet. Pickles continues to be oblivious to what's happening, as she points out various photos of Mr. Peanutbutter to her followers, to further illustrate how perfect he is.

Pickles then reenters the closet. The others have found spots to hide behind the clothing racks. She then points out a caricature of Mr. Peanutbutter, which indicates he likes tennis and skateboarding. Pickles says Mr. Peanutbutter didn't share he had these interests, and she wonders what else he's been hiding from her. Pickles wonders in she simply just wasn't good enough for Mr. Peanutbutter. Pickles' fans tell her how awesome and amazing she is.

She then concludes she's not the problem and says she shouldn't even be in his house, deciding to pack her suitcase and leave. BoJack is seen holding Ruthie on his shoulder in the back of the clothing rack.

Pickles gets her suitcase and says she'll check into a fancy hotel. Pickles starts grabbing various items of clothing off their hangers, and Princess Carolyn and Diane duck in the shadows to avoid being seen. Princess Carolyn tells Diane she hates to leave her hanging and leaps out. She then goes to the other side, to the opposite rack, where BoJack is with Ruthie.

Pickles unknowingly grabs Diane's arm, and wonders why she should leave, as Mr. Peanutbutter is the one who cheated. Diane takes off her jacket so that Pickles is grabbing the sleeve of her jacket, instead of her arm. Pickles then walks away, and Diane looks relieved. Pickles then starts packing Mr. Peanutbutter's clothes instead. Pickles then says she's so confused.

She then gets a message from t_chavez, with advice to take a bath. Todd then realizes she would have to come to the bathroom, and he completely forgot he was hiding in the bathtub. Pickles comes in the restroom and gets ready for her bath. Todd then ducks behind the laundry hamper, and he loses his beanie in a pile of dirty laundry. He puts underwear on his head instead of his beanie.

In the kitchen, Mr. Peanutbutter is at the fridge. He asks the boba maker to make a boba for Pickles. The machine asks if he wants whipped cream. Mr. Peanutbutter stands there, thinking.

In the closet, Princess Carolyn asks BoJack how his sobriety is going. He scoffs, saying it's impossible. Diane manages to get out of the bedroom, and almost sneaks downstairs, but midway down she sees Mr. Peanutbutter. She then darts back up the stairs to the bedroom.

She then tells BoJack that there is no clear path to the exit, and she's going to go through the window, she tells BoJack he can wait it out if he wants. BoJack then asks if it's because of him that she's moving to Chicago. Diane says no, she needs to go.

Just as Princess Carolyn reemerges from out of the closet with Ruthie, Mr. Peanutbutter's voice is heard calling out for Pickles, startling everyone. Diane bumps into BoJack, who then crashes into Princess Carolyn, which sends Ruthie flying. BoJack then catches her, and then he slips on the pile of Mr. Peanutbutter's clothes, which then sends Ruthie in the air again. Diane leaps up and catches her, and they all scramble for the closet.

Mr. Peanutbutter then enters the bedroom. Mr. Peanutbutter says he knows boba in Pickles' favorite drink. He then says, but just the other day she said to him as a direct quote "whipped cream is the best thing in the world, keep it as far away from [her] as possible." Mr. Peanutbutter says he just wanted to circle back. Pickles is listening to music in the bathtub, completely unaware of anything else. Mr. Peanutbutter then goes on to say, he loves the challenge of trying to square two irreconcilable positions.

Diane is playing peek-a-boo with the baby in the closet, causing her to giggle. Ruthie then crawls off, and Diane wonders where the baby went. She crawls over a chord and knocks a mirror that was on the vanity, to the floor causing it to shatter. Mr. Peanutbutter then declares he will make Pickles' drink the way she wants it.

Ruthie then crawls under the bed and out the bedroom door. Princess Carolyn chases after her, leaving BoJack and Diane standing in the bedroom. BoJack pulls the sheets of the bed. He starts talking about his two-month sobriety chip. He says when he got it, he wished Diane could see it. He pulls it out of his jacket, to show her, Diane tells him it's amazing. He smiles at this.

Just then, Pickles emerges from the restroom and a towel over her head. BoJack and Diane scurry towards the window. They make it out on to the roof but drop the sheets. Pickles then shuts the window. Todd has hidden under the laundry hamper and is escaping through the door. Mr. Peanutbutter has two boba teas in hand, one with whipped cream and one without.

Pickles walks out and says she hopes the boba doesn't have whipped cream, and Mr. Peanutbutter hands her the one without whipped cream. She then says now she does want the whipped cream after all. Mr. Peanutbutter turns around to realize that the other boba, which had the whipped cream, has disappeared.

Pickles says she doesn't want to be mad at Mr. Peanutbutter, and he says he still wants to marry her, and asks her if that's what she wants as well. He pulls out the ring. She makes him promise to never lie to her again, which he does. Mr. Peanutbutter hands her the ring, and Pickles slips it back on her finger. She says if that was the only time he cheated, they can put it behind them. Mr. Peanutbutter blurts out it was one unit of cheating, comprised of two separate instances. He then says the spirit of it was once.

She says at least he confessed right away. Mr. Peanutbutter then tells her it was actually months ago. They are standing by the window, and Mr. Peanutbutter finally admits it was Diane. Diane who is listening from outside, on the roof, cringes at this. Pickles asks if he means the nice lady from the chew toy store. Mr. Peanutbutter says he means his ex-wife, Diane. Pickles says that is much worse. She once again throws her ring at him. She then lets out a high-pitched scream, the frequency of which, breaks several picture frames and the window. Outside, on the ledge, BoJack and Diane try to doge the breaking glass. Pickles runs out of the house crying.

Eduardo in the thunder room

The scene goes back to Eduardo, who is still trapped in the thunder room. He gives himself a pep talk to hold it together. He tells himself to do what the sign says. The two signs read "Don't Panic" and "Drink." Under the "Drink" sign there is a bar, which causes Eduardo to faint.

Pickles sits in the front yard, by the fire pit, listening to her music. Mr. Peanutbutter puts down the ring on the dresser sadly. He then takes a whole bunch of coins from a bowl and asks the electronic coin sorter to sort them out. Mr. Peanutbutter then confides in the coin sorter, saying he wishes someone could sort his problems in a similar fashion.

Outside, BoJack pretends to be the coin sorter and in a robotic voice tells him to go to Pickles. Mr. Peanutbutter thinks maybe he should wait for Pickles to come to him. Diane then jumps in, pretending to be the thermostat. She tells Mr. Peanutbutter, he comes across as dismissive when he tries to make problems go away. Diane tells him to really listen to Pickles, and not talk so much. Mr. Peanutbutter says OK and leaves the room. After he is gone, Diane and BoJack go back inside the bedroom, through the broken window.

BoJack asks if this whole mess is why she's moving to Chicago. She says she is moving for herself. She tells BoJack that she needs to hear him say he'll be OK. BoJack tells her he'll be OK. Diane says she doesn't want anything bad to happen to him while she's in Chicago. He tells her "that's not a friendship, it's a hostage situation." He encourages her to go to Chicago, as he touches her shoulder and says he'll be fine. Diane thanks him.

Todd and Princess Carolyn are downstairs looking for Ruthie, again. They hear balloons popping. They hurry into the room that was decorated for the surprise wedding. Ruthie is popping a bunch of balloons. They finally manage to get a hold of Ruthie. Todd then says they should get her away from the balloons, which are choking hazards. Princess Carolyn says he has a real knack for this and asks him to be Ruthie's nanny.

Mr. Peanutbutter goes to talk to Pickles. Pickles tells him that this should be the happiest time of her life, but because Mr. Peanutbutter did something stupid, she is the one who has to feel bad, and it's not fair. She admits she still loves him and wants to marry him. Pickles says they can't go back to the way things were before and pretend like nothing happened because then she'll feel stupid.

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 says the only way they can be even 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 then tells them that she probably lost her wallet. She says it was probably 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.

The episode ends with BoJack carrying out Eduardo, who fainted in the thunder room. Princess Carolyn says she found Ruthie and had a blast. Todd then hands Pickles the boba and leaves. Mr. Peanutbutter comments that was odd, as he shuts the door behind them. Pickles' parents call, and Mr. Peanutbutter gets excited and tells her to put the phone on speaker.

Trivia  

  • BoJack's line in response to Captain Peanutbutter telling him about the things he is scared of is "How are [we] back in this conversation? It's like [I'm] trying to canoe out to sea but the current keeps washing [me] back to the same shallow backwater."
    • This is likely a reference to the closing line of F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby, "And so we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past," referencing the episode's conclusion, that Mr. Peanutbutter and Pickles cannot go back to how their relationship was previously after he cheats on her.
      • There is also a connection to other characters, like BoJack and Diane. The Great Gatsby was also referenced in the previous episode, Feel-Good Story.
