Introduction
Fool me once, fool me twice, fool me chicken soup with rice

—Todd Chavez, Zoës and Zeldas


Hooray!

—Todd's catchphrase


Todd Chavez is a human in his twenties who lives rent-free with BoJack in his house and sleeps on the couch at the beginning of BoJack Horseman.

He later moves in with Diane and Mr. Peanutbutter, and eventually ends up occupying Princess Carolyn's old apartment in the end of Season 4. He is one of the main characters.

Todd is notoriously lazy, a slacker, and is frequently told by BoJack to "clean up your shit, Todd."

However, he is also very creative and can work tirelessly when he discovers something that interests him, and his shenanigans have gotten him into a range of situations and occupations.

He is also seen to put forth a lot of effort to help people: cooking meals and/or running errands for Diane and Mr. Peanutbutter and Princess Carolyn, and assisting BoJack with his various schemes.

At the end of That Went Well, he believes he may be asexual. He is shown for the next few episodes to be unsure about this and is uncomfortable with being called asexual. However, in Hooray! Todd Episode!, he accepts himself and officially comes out as asexual.

In Surprise!, Princess Carolyn asks him to become Ruthie's nanny which he accepts. He also makes his first match with Maude on his dating app All About That Ace in The Face of Depression.

Physical Appearance

Todd is an adult human male in his twenties. He has short, shaggy, dark blue hair that is mostly worn under a yellow beanie, and black stubble on his face and neck.

He typically wears a red zip hoodie with a plain white shirt underneath, grey sweatpants with white lines on the sides, and blue flip-flops.

During Todd's time in prison in Our A-Story is a "D" Story, he gets two tattoos—one on his right arm that says Latin Kings and another on his left arm that says Skin Heads, both of which are the names of gangs Todd was invited to join.

Sometime after he broke out, Todd had them edited to say "LA Kings," with the "tin" in Latin crossed out, and "Skinny Jugheads," with the added letters written in purple.

Todd appears to be significantly shorter than most of the other characters and has a somewhat more cartoony appearance. According to his model sheets, Todd is approximately 5' 2" tall.

After becoming President of Ad Sales at WhatTimeIsItRightNow.com in The Light Bulb Scene, Todd spends the rest of Season 5 wearing a dark blue suit with the jacket opened, a white collared shirt, a black tie, and dark brown shoes, along with his normal yellow beanie.

Todd is seen wearing a left black shoe due to losing his other shoe in Planned Obsolescence. In The Showstopper Todd sticks a lit pipe into the inside pocket on the left side of his jacket, leaving a visible burn mark on the outside. He removes this entire outfit in The Stopped Show and reveals he had his normal clothes on underneath it.

As a teenager in 2007 he had longer, straighter hair with bangs parted to one side (since that was the style at that time), and he had a periwinkle beanie and blue sweatpants.

Personality

Todd is a friendly, well-meaning, and mostly upbeat slacker who has been shown to possess a plethora of skills including an understanding of Japanese, entrepreneurial know-how, and artistic capabilities.

Besides having allied with Mr. Peanutbutter for various business ideas, he tried writing and composing his own rock opera, Newtopia Rising, Book I: The Search for a New Utopia. Like the other main characters, Todd is shown to be searching for meaning in his life and attempts to do so through helping others and finding belonging within a community (with varying degrees of success).

While Todd is well-meaning and can try hard when he puts his mind to it, he often ends up in trouble. He initially prized BoJack as his best friend—despite suffering constant insults from him. Todd is also overly trusting of BoJack and is often dragged into his numerous schemes.

Funnily enough, Todd always finds it in his heart to forgive BoJack, for whatever he has done to him. BoJack, however, fails to have much regard for Todd at most times. BoJack is seen regularly shutting him out of conversations or ignoring him. As time passed, however, Todd began to question their friendship—getting annoyed that BoJack gets everything he wants, despite all the terrible things he has done.

In It's You, the line was finally crossed when BoJack accidentally let slip that he had sex with Todd's high school friend, Emily. Fed up with his friend's actions, Todd came to realize that BoJack had been the problem all along and told him this in no uncertain terms. He tells BoJack he needs to be better and can't just do awful things and then feel bad about himself as a means of justifying and normalizing his poor actions.

Earlier on he also advises BoJack not to try to sabotage Diane and Mr. Peanutbutter's wedding. He tells him he should stop messing with other people's lives. This shows the more mature, no-nonsense side of his personality.

In Season 4, Todd has a deeper conversation with BoJack and admits that he's not ready for them to be friends again, or live together again, but that he's okay with being "more than not-friends" making it clear that their previous dynamic as friends is no longer acceptable to him. This could imply future healing and repairing of their friendship over a long period of time in the future.

After telling Emily he is not interested in sex after she thought he was gay, she calls him asexual, and while he takes a bit to accept the term, he comes out to BoJack, he eventually joins the Asexual Alliance Group. He starts up the idea of Clown Dentists, which fails miserably—and he ends up getting asked out by Yolanda Buenaventura, a fellow asexual implying a possible relationship might start for them.

However, in Season 5, the date but they wind up breaking up in Planned Obsolescence due to not having anything in common besides asexuality. However, they agree to get back together when they are a hundred years old if neither of them finds anyone else.

Background

History

Todd Chavez was born on April 15, 1991.

On Halloween, 2004, a thirteen-year-old Todd and his friends, one of whom is a girl named Emily, tried to trick-or-treat at BoJack Horseman's house during his annual Halloween party. However, Princess Carolyn denied them candy, saying they were too young for the party and too old to be trick-or-treating. As revenge, Todd and his friends TP BoJack's house.

In 2007, a teenage Todd and Emily, who had always harbored a crush on him, made out in a closet while playing seven minutes in heaven at a party, and the two became boyfriend and girlfriend. A few months later, while making out in her parents' bedroom, Emily asks Todd to have sex.

Todd hesitantly agrees, but just then they hear Emily's dad comes home. Todd begins to panic, as he thinks Emily's dad is a mob boss, as she told him her dad’s job is related to The Sopranos, but Emily reveals he’s actually an editor for The Sopranos.

Todd shimmies out the window, by using the film reel of the final episode of The Sopranos as a rope. When he does, a bit of it breaks off. As he runs away, he looks at the film strip, and discovers Tony marries Dr. Melfi.

Shortly afterward, Todd became obsessed with the video game series Decapathon until it corrupted his life—flunking out of high school, losing his girlfriend, Emily, and being kicked out of his mom's house.

On Halloween, 2009, Todd, now eighteen, went back to BoJack's Halloween party. He compliments the house to Princess Carolyn. Princess Carolyn, like always, is on door duty for the party. Princess Carolyn says, it’s her boyfriend's house.

Todd questions why her boyfriend makes her answer the door. Princess Carolyn begins to deny this, but suddenly has an epiphany—questioning what she’s doing with her life, as she’s already thirty-five.

She rushes out the door, and passes the box of screeners to Todd, leaving him with the responsibility.

During the party, BoJack got a call from his mother, telling him his father died in a duel. After he hangs up with her, BoJack goes back into the house to learn from Todd that the party is over. BoJack laments that he thought he would feel something when an event such as one of his parents dying happens, but he doesn’t. Todd offers to stick around for a bit, and BoJack agrees and tells him to stick around as long as he wants.

The next morning, Todd made BoJack hash browns to thank him. BoJack kept eating them, and he threw up in the pool, which also made Todd throw up. BoJack told Todd to clean it up, but Todd never did and BoJack had to call the pool cleaner. Afterward, Todd told him, "Thank you for letting me stay here. I don't have anywhere else to go. This made BoJack feel good about himself.

Todd continues to remain unemployed, and sleep on BoJack's couch for the next five years, while BoJack financially supported him.

Season 1

Some point before the first episode, Todd got involved with a powerful drug cartel, leaving him to throw a Quinceañera for the leader's teenage daughter. He also once got involved with the Russian mafia.

Todd is seen being friendly and laid back toward BoJack, and considers him a best friend. BoJack, despite also referring to Todd as his best friend, constantly voices disdain for him. BoJack tells Todd to "clean his shit up," to a point where BoJack could be considered abusive to Todd. Todd is also seen getting involved in BoJack’s antics and schemes.

In Zoës and Zeldas, Todd reveals he has a rock opera, "Newtopia Rising, Book 1: The Search for a New Utopia." At first, BoJack harshly criticizes it, after Todd performs it in front of everyone. However, he decides to mentor Todd, and help him refine his rock opera. During this time, Todd reveals to BoJack about how he got addicted to Decapathon and it ruined his life. Princess Carolyn signs Todd as one of her clients and invites a celebrated name in rock operas, Virgil Van Cleef, to view his next rehearsal.

Virgil is pleased with Todd's rock opera and invites Todd to debut it next month at a theater he owns. BoJack is dismayed about Todd's sudden success but still shows support. He takes Todd to get snacks at a convenience store after hearing the news that potential financiers were coming to see a rehearsal tomorrow.

It is at the store, that Todd discovers Decapathon VII, the newest game in the video game series. It is the same game, that ruined him in the past, in the ten cents bin. A woman standing behind him, asks him to get a tape for her, out of that same bin.

BoJack staunchly tells Todd not to relapse, but Todd buys and secretly plays the video game in an all-night binge. Todd ends up groggy the following morning and gives a shabby performance, disappointing Virgil and the financiers. BoJack consoles Todd and takes him home.

BoJack also decides to let Todd use the closet in the living room to keep his stuff in it. However, BoJack, in order to avoid being alone, bought Decapathon VII and placed it in the convenience store bargain bin. He paid off store clerks and Character Actress Margo Martindale to manipulate getting the game into Todd's hands the entire time in order to jeopardize his chances of ever having a successful career. After Todd goes to bed, the receipt for BoJack’s purchase Decapathon VII is seen underneath the couch.

In Live Fast, Diane Nguyen, after having the house to himself when BoJack and Diane go to Boston, Todd ends unwittingly begins to showcase the house as David Boreanaz's house to paying tourists even crudely taping pictures of David's face onto pictures of BoJack.

After hearing this, Princess Carolyn assists him since he is one of her clients. Todd's tourist business grows to proportions out of his control thanks to Princess Carolyn's scheming—helplessly laundering the tourism money through illegal channels, and ultimately landing him in prison. He uses his only phone call on BoJack, who doesn’t recognize the number and hangs up.

In Our A-Story is a "D" Story, Todd is solicited by two gangs while in prison: the Aryans and the Latin Kings. He is torn between which gang to join, as the two gangs ask him to consider and make a decision at the upcoming prison mixer. He calls BoJack multiple times for both advice on his situation and to possibly get bail altogether, but is either ignored or dismissed.

He is later saved, when The Hollywood "D" BoJack stole to impress Diane, is then en route to being returned from Mr. Peanutbutter's house to its original location. This transport of the "D" is disrupted, when one of Mr. Peanutbutter's celebratory fireworks downs the helicopter. It crashes into the prison Todd is being kept at, where he is moments away from being curb-stomped by both gangs, after they found out that he was trying to please both at once. He is saved by the ensuing jailbreak.

In The Telescope, Todd goes with Diane and BoJack to Malibu to visit BoJack's old friend Herb Kazzaz. He is left in charge of watching the car while BoJack and Diane are inside the house. He is then suddenly held at gunpoint by members of the Celebrity Stealing Club who are looking for precious memorabilia.

Sensing tension between the two sisters he tries to mediate for them. When Todd lets his guard down the knock him unconscious and flee the scene.

In Horse Majeure, Todd realizes BoJack had tried to sabotage his rock opera. He angrily tells BoJack to stop messing in other people's lives after he tries to sabotage Diane and Mr. Peanutbutter's wedding.

Mr. Peanutbutter had earlier confided in Todd that he has doubts about his marriage to Diane, and remarks he sometimes feels relief when he dreams that Diane disappeared from his life. Conflicted, Todd decides not to share this useful information with BoJack when he suspects that BoJack had used Margo Martindale similarly in Zoës and Zeldas to help Todd relapse back into playing video games.

In One Trick Pony, During the filming of the movie based on Our A-Story is a "D" Story, Todd decides to get involved to do something with his life since his failed rock opera launch in Zoës and Zeldas. He 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." BoJack confronts Todd, accusing him of sabotaging the film to prevent BoJack from relaunching his career similarly to what he did to Todd.

Todd, however, claims it wasn't the case, as he had learned to move on and had been working with Quentin in earnest. He refuses to fully reconcile with a guilty BoJack in the end.

In Downer Ending back at his house, BoJack has a hard time beginning to write. He procrastinates by setting himself up with various distraction and ultimately decides to contact Sarah Lynn for recreational drugs to help jump-start the writing process. Along with Todd and Sarah Lynn, BoJack binges on the drugs and agree to split up writing the book among the three of them. The process seemingly begins well, but they soon lose sight of the task at hand.

BoJack fearfully confronts Todd again about his sabotage, and Todd tells him again that he has moved on, but has learned not to expect much from BoJack for fear of being dragged down with him. As the drug effects worsen, they begin to get violent, lose their sense of reality, and begin having extreme hallucinations.

In the Christmas Special following Season 1 BoJack and Todd watch a very special Christmas episode of Horsin' Around titled Sabrina's Christmas Wish in which his youngest adopted daughter Sabrina—upon discovering Santa's existence decides to wish for her parents to be alive again. The ending brings much confusion to Todd. An initially skeptical BoJack suggests they watch the series' eight other Christmas specials.

Season 2

In Brand New Couch, Todd comes through the front door covered in dirt, and questions why he woke up in an alley. BoJack explains he had to get rid of the old couch because it was a metaphor for his old attitude and he misheard his audio-book tell him he had to get rid of the burdens of his life “so far” with “sofa.” Todd is unsure if he likes the new couch and says he’ll just sleep in BoJack’s car. He later decides the new couch is good after all.

In Yesterdayland, BoJack asks Todd to drive him to his car as he drove his car into a fountain and Ubered home, but Todd rejects saying he has to set up his new theme park.  

In the past, BoJack told Todd that Disneyland didn’t exist.  

So, over the past five years, Todd has been working on his own version of "real" Disneyland, though BoJack has no memory of it despite him constantly bringing it up and building with worker bees very loudly. 

Todd gives Diane, Princess Carolyn, Vincent, and Wanda a tour. Vincent is cranky because he got his "adult braces" off and Princess Carolyn leaves with him. Mr. Peanutbutter, who is playing games, wants to get involved with Todd’s Disneyland because he built it while working for PB Livin' and Todd 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 trademark "Diisneyland." 

Todd celebrates his legal victory with a party at BoJack's house.

Later, while at the theme park, Todd gets caught in the roller coaster and the pile of mattresses catches on fire. The killer bees fly off and Mr. Peanutbutter tries to get the fire department, but they think that he’s trying to warn them that a kid fell down a well. Disneyland is engulfed in flames and Mr. Peanutbutter rushes with a hose to save Todd. They take the rickety roller coaster to safety.

In Still Broken, Todd accompanies BoJack to Herb's funeral. When BoJack and the former Horsin' Around cast go to Parrotmount Studios to look Around in Herb's old office, Todd comes in, revealing himself to have been in the trunk the whole time.

BoJack gives him money to get five Squirts from the vending machine. However, Todd drops the money and it is picked up by a mouse, who is then picked up by a bird, who flies into an airplane.

Todd walks back from the vending machine in dismay before meeting a janitor who comes out from a dumpster. The janitor shows him a transformation machine that he said Steve Urkel used to become debonair, though the actual machine is a prop and represents a very powerful idea. Todd ignores him and believes he will become cooler if he enters the machine. He does so and comes out with a cooler attitude, saying his name is “Toad.” He hits the machine to make sodas come out.

Todd maintains a cool attitude, stealing a motorcycle from a biker.

BoJack watches the sunset and Todd shows up on the motorcycle with the sodas. BoJack immediately criticizes his new look and Todd becomes embarrassed, immediately falling out of the cool look.

In After the Party Princess Carolyn offers Todd a ride home after a fight breaks out at Diane's surprise party between Diane and Mr. Peanutbutter about whether or not Tony Curtis is dead.

In the car, Todd asks if Tony Curtis is actually dead, in which Princess Carolyn says he’s not. Princess Carolyn stops the breaks as she almost hits a woman and a young boy, who looks just like her boyfriend Vincent.

She believes that was his wife and son and Vincent has a secret family. Angry, she turns the car around to her house with Todd and leaves a voicemail for Vincent demanding him to call her back. The doorbell rings and she makes Todd shimmy down the drainpipe and waits in her car. It is the boy from the crosswalk, who introduces himself as Kevin. He says that his father, Vincent, is looking for parking, and uses the bathroom.

In Princess Carolyn’s car, Todd smells an urn that has Herb’s ashes in it, and turns on the radio, before becoming very bored. He starts to talk to his phone, who asks him what love is.

Todd finishes answering his phone’s question, which then asks if they are in love. Before Todd can reply, Princess Carolyn’s work phone says that it is in love with Todd’s phone.

Todd lets the phones kiss each other. His phone then asks if he would like to update its operating system, in which they fix a bug that lets phones fall in love with each other. Both phones beg him to not update before his phone relents and understand that he has to update because to love is to feel pain. Todd, in a dilemma, says it is too much.

Todd updates his phone. Princess Carolyn comes into the car and tells him she and Vincent broke up. She says that Tony Curtis is dead.

In Chickens, Mr. Peanutbutter leaves Todd at his house to have a spa day, and suggests to Todd to go on one of his "silly Todd adventures." Todd ends up befriending an escaped "food chicken" from Chicken 4 Days. Not wanting the police to take her back to the slaughterhouse, Todd—accompanied by Diane and Kelsey's daughter Irving, help Becca escape to Gentle Farms, a chicken farm that prides itself on giving its chickens a good home until they’re killed.

However, shortly after dropping Becca off, Todd suddenly decides they have to get her back—saying all his life he’s been a screw-up but with Becca he was finally responsible for something. Diane quickly swerves the car around and the trio goes to break Becca out.

However, they wake up the farmer, who’s prepared to shoot trespassers. Diane tells Irving to wait in the car while she and Todd break out Becca. They go into the chicken coop, and find Becca and set the other food chickens free.

They run and hide but end up hiding in a slaughter shed. Todd apologizes to Diane for getting into these situations all the time, but Diane says that’s just what your twenties are supposed to be like. She says she’s supposed to be the adult and she’s a total mess, but Todd says she’s the coolest person he knows. Irving drives the car into the shed, and they escape but are stopped by the police.

BoJack gets the police to drop all charges because he’s a celebrity, and he has Drew Barrymore adopt Becca as a favor she owes him.

In Higher Love, Mr. Peanutbutter and Todd are told by their accountant that PB Livin' and that Mr. Peanutbutter needs to get a job. Todd also accompanies BoJack to the hardware store to buy supplies for his auto-erotic asphyxiation contraption to get Wanda to admit she loves him.

In Hank After Dark, Mr. Peanutbutter, Todd, and Wanda are at a photo shoot at MBN for Mr. Peanutbutter's new hosting job for Hollywoo Stars and Celebrities: What Do They Know? Do They Know Things?? Let's Find Out!. Wanda says he should get some pictures with Hank to promote both shows for the network. Mr. Peanutbutter gets nervous, as Hank is his idol.

Todd leaves to get Mr. Peanutbutter some chili so he won’t have to meet him on an empty stomach. Hank arrives, and Mr. Peanutbutter acts nervous around him, not knowing how to pose, but Hank assures him to just do what’s natural because guys like them are pros at this.

Diane's accusations against Hank makes it to the news. It is also announced the Prince of Cordovia went missing briefly that afternoon but was found buying chili, although it was actually Todd, and the prince had swapped places with him.

Tom continues on the Hank story and questions what Diane has against him. Cardigan Burke, their sociologist, dismisses these allegations, and is offended Diane would imply something like that on "a national treasure."

Meanwhile "Todd" gives Mr. Peanutbutter his mail, which to his dismay is all threats/death threats for Diane.

Prince Gustav learns from the news that Todd gave his fortune to charity and fired his chief adviser, all of which could lead to changes in Cordovia, including economic collapse, which angers the real prince.

In Let's Find Out, Mr. Peanutbutter has a new game show called Hollywoo Stars and Celebrities: What Do They Know? Do They Know Things?? Let's Find Out where BoJack is the guest star.

Backstage he gets into a rivalry with J.D. Salinger's assistant Mia McKibben over who should win J.D's prized pen. Mia wins in the end but Todd puts on a feeling sorry for himself act which Mia falls for and she gives him the pen. Todd then mocks her for being so stupid.

In Yes And, his episode begins with BoJack and Wanda standing on the former's deck over a sleeping, bedraggled Diane, with Wanda annoyed that Diane is overstaying her welcome.

Todd walks in and wakes her up by saying good morning to everyone. Todd asks BoJack and Wanda if they want to fly a kite, to which the former harshly rejects and the latter has to work.

This makes Todd remember that he has a job too, and he goes to the set of Hollywoo Stars and Celebrities: What Do They Know? Do They Know Things?? Let's Find Out!, although he is reminded by J.D. Salinger that he fired him, and Mr. Peanutbutter is also too busy to hang out. A downed Todd walks through town until he comes across a sign for Scientology, but a man instead offers Todd to join his improv club, Shenanigags.

Todd is seen at the Shenanigags learning about improv. He has won over the group, except Brian. The members explain you get suggestions from the audience and make-up scenes based on them, but you’re not allowed to ask questions or say no. You should also try to build on suggestions, called the "Yes and" technique. Todd can’t believe how simple improv is—which Brian disagrees with. The members tell him most importantly, improv is about community, which Todd has always want to be a part of.

At BoJack’s house the next day, BoJack is explaining the misunderstanding with Abe D'Catfish when Wanda questions why he would antagonize Abe. BoJack tells Wanda she’s probably glad since she didn’t want him to go to New York, and now he’s stuck here filming a movie that’ll ruin his career. Wanda doesn’t think he should sulk about it—but Diane says he should. BoJack thinks she may be right, although Wanda retorts Diane is the last person to take life advice from.

Todd enters and begins to tell them about improv, and tries to get them to practice with him, but BoJack and Wanda tell him to stop. Todd hopes he impress the leader of the council so he can become a Level 2. Diane believes he’s joined a cult, while Todd claims it isn’t—but BoJack agrees that improv is, in fact, a cult. Diane rants about how nothing matters, and after she leaves Wanda tells BoJack he has to talk to her.

Todd remembers his class and runs to Shenanigags. The members reprimand him for being late and warn him if he’s late again he’ll be kicked out. They also reveal Brian was kicked out for being too negative and sent away by Copernicus to the Shenanigags cruise line, the Giggle Ship. Todd then says his best friend told him improv is a cult, but he says he doesn’t believe that. The members tell him to invite BoJack to his improv show to see if he’s a true friend or not or if he’s worth having in his life.

Todd and the other Shenanigags members are at a bar when one of the members spots Copernicus, who Todd learns is the founder of Shenanigags.

Todd wants to talk to him, but the other members stop him, saying you can’t just go talk to him. Brian tells Todd to improv on a random lady to prove himself worthy. Todd approaches an old woman and improv her successfully, telling her that her friend exploded, and the gang cheer for him as they all leave. This also gets Copernicus's attention.

In Out to Sea, Todd goes back to BoJack's to get his stuff because he's going on the comedy cruise line, to discover that BoJack has returned. After an awkward greeting, Todd tells BoJack that he's finally moving out just like he wanted. BoJack attempts to apologize for missing Todd's graduation performance, although Todd knows he doesn’t mean it.

Todd then asks BoJack if he remembers the morning after his first night of staying with him, which BoJack doesn’t. Todd says he made BoJack a bunch of pancakes to thank him for letting him stay, but BoJack got mad at him for letting him eat so many pancakes—so he chased him around but he was hungover and full from the pancakes so he took a nap. When he woke up he thanked Todd for the pancakes and told him to leave.

BoJack says he doesn’t remember any of that. As Todd is about to leave, BoJack tells Todd he’s better off without him and says they’ve had some good times and asks Todd if he agrees. Todd reluctantly replies with, "right," and tells BoJack that he hopes he'll find a way to be happy as he leaves.

Copernicus shows Todd around the Giggle ship and leads him to his cabin, which is small and dingy and only contains an old mattress, although Todd is excited to not sleep on a couch anymore.

On the Giggleship, Todd is hanging out with his Shenanigans friends when he sees a beaten up Brian being carried off by guards because he didn’t scrub the floors. Todd goes to see Copernicus so that they can clear things up. He goes into Copernicus's empty tiny cabin, although he discovers a porthole covered up by a poster. Todd crawls through it and discovers Copernicus has a large luxurious cabin—and most importantly, Copernicus is a fraud, evident by a book of butt jokes on his table. Copernicus catches Todd and he is taken away by guards.

BoJack decides it's time to bring Todd home He takes and his boat out to sea and follows the Giggleship.

BoJack manages to get on the Giggle ship and breaks into Todd's improv performance, and begs Todd to come home. Todd can't remember anything due to being brainwashed, so BoJack reminds Todd of who he is and that he should come home. Todd agrees and escapes with BoJack.

The two of them run out of the auditorium but run into guards. There is an improv fight that BoJack and Todd win.

The two of them make it outside. BoJack climbs down onto his boat. Todd begins to climb down when Copernicus tries to stop him. Todd tells him improv is fun, but not to this extent, and that he’s going to leave with his friend.

Copernicus begins to question why BoJack is his friend, because he sabotaged his rock opera, abuses him, and has never said anything nice to him. Todd tries to say it’s more complicated than that. Two Shenanigags members try to convince Todd they’re his real friends.

All of a sudden, BoJack tells Todd he actually made him hash browns the first morning he stayed with him. He then says he kept eating them and they both threw up in the pool. He tells Todd he told him to clean it up, but he ended up having to call the pool cleaner.

Afterward, Todd told him, "Thank you for letting me stay here. I don't have anywhere else to go." BoJack explains that made him feel good about himself and that letting him stay with him was the best thing he ever did on purpose. He tells Todd he’s his best friend, and Todd gets on his ship.

The two ride back to land. Todd asks BoJack why he has a boat, but he doesn’t remember.

Princess Carolyn calls BoJack and tells him that she keeps getting calls from New York playwright Jill Pill, saying she really wants to talk to him and that apparently she worked on his show—not Horsin' Around, his other show, to BoJack's shock as he realizes what show she means. Princess Carolyn also asks if he wants Herb's ashes. BoJack agrees but Princess Carolyn's assistant, Stuart, accidentally breaks the urn.

The urn is put back together and put in the new orphanage, now renamed after Herb. Unfortunately, the plaque reads "Jerb" instead of Herb, as the email BoJack sent apparently had a typo. BoJack is annoyed at this and tells them to change it, although the owner refuses to change it because they spent a lot of money on it already. Todd tells BoJack that Herb probably would have thought that the misspelling was funny and it would be considered hilarious BoJack couldn't even get this right. BoJack reluctantly says he's right and they agree to go get food.

Season 3

In Start Spreading The News BoJack goes to New York to promote Secretariat and finds Todd in his suitcase. BoJack questions how he got here. Apparently, Todd got drunk from an alcohol mixture that BoJack made to make himself fall asleep, passed out and fell into the suitcase. Todd winds up getting lost in the hotel and most of his plot revolves around finding his way back to the room.

In BoJack Kills, Todd and Mr. Peanutbutter find themselves in a stinky situation when they are attacked by a skunk. 

Princess Carolyn shows up at Mr. Peanutbutter's house to find it smelling of skunk and marijuana—courtesy of Todd smoking a joint, and 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. Carolyn suggests they take a tomato bath. Todd is enthusiastic about the idea due to being high on marijuana. 

Princess Carolyn goes to the bathroom door to check up on Todd and Mr. Peanutbutter. To her chagrin, Todd exits the bathroom with nothing but a strainer covering his crotch—covered in tomato sauce, which drips all over the carpet. Carolyn is mildly perturbed at the thought of Todd and Mr. Peanutbutter bathing together, which Todd is quick to defend. 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 Carolyn and the bedroom. He notes that shaking off made their problem worse, despite the skunk scent being cleared from their bodies. Carolyn prepares to calls a cleaning service while Todd and Mr. Peanutbutter take care of their foul-smelling clothes. Todd eagerly runs off to do so, tracking more tomato sauce through the house.

In Love And/Or Marriage To celebrate Secretariat's success, BoJack and Todd go to Hotel Kangaroosevelt to have drinks. There, Todd runs into Emily, his ex-girlfriend from high school. She’s excited to see Todd and explains her best friend is getting married and she’s here for the rehearsal dinner.

Cabracadabra is a cab company where woman drive other women around, making them feel safe and preventing them from being harassed by men. This is what Todd and Emily tell Mr. Peanutbutter when they pitch it to him at his house. Of course, he’s on board with the idea. They are setting up shop at BoJack’s house because there is 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. 

In Stop the Presses BoJack wakes on his deck with a papier-mâché of Todd's head on his own head. He takes it off and walks through the house where everyone is busy setting up for Todd and Emily's new cab company Cabracadabra

In a flashback at the end of Love And/Or Marriage, where Emily met up with BoJack at the bar after Todd got out of sleeping with her. She tells him she got thirsty. When BoJack asks if Todd would want to join them, she says she’s tired of trying to figure out what Todd wants. After they sleep together, Emily said they should tell Todd, but BoJack tells her they shouldn’t. 

When the two ran into each other when she and Todd first started setting up, they act awkward and deny knowing each other. Mr. Peanutbutter senses that something is going on, but decides that it’s because they all know Cabracadabra will be successful.

BoJack and Emily are awkward around each other because of what happened between them. BoJack says he can't sleep because Todd and Emily are talking and laughing.

Inside, Emily asks Todd if she can talk to him. She tells Todd he should run the company without her, saying he really doesn’t need her anyways and she can’t work here. An upset Todd asks if he did something, but Emily assures him it’s her and BoJack.

Todd asks what happened. Emily says she hasn’t been a good friend to him, and that things happened, and that BoJack hasn’t been a very good friend to him either. A downed Todd accepts and assures Emily he wants her to keep her share of money. Emily tells him he’s sweet, and he shouldn’t waste it on people who don’t deserve it.

In Old Acquaintance Todd tells Mr. Peanutbutter that his idea to start including male customers was a success. However, it's caused some problems because they rate drivers on how they look. Mr. Peanutbutter tells him that if their women don't feel safe in that space then they need to find new women.

Todd then heads to a gentleman's club. Later, he throws a party for his company at BoJack's house.

In It's You Todd and Mr. Peanutbutter have to make up new Oscar nominees after Mr. Peanutbutter loses the envelope while looking for his phone. However, Todd does not want to nominate BoJack and angrily questions if he’s really their friend, saying he’s sick of BoJack walking over everybody but still getting what he wants, but Mr. Peanutbutter says 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. Later in the day, Mr. Peanutbutter's obvious faux pas is discovered by the Oscar committee. Mr. Peanutbutter goes to BoJack's house, where he was throwing a large party to elevate his nomination, and breaks the news to BoJack that he wasn’t actually nominated for an Oscar.

BoJack wakes up in a practically destroyed house, all alone. BoJack, desperate, realizes he can't reach Ana on the phone, whom he "need(s)." BoJack then antagonizes the recently-returned Todd, ordering him not to leave him like everybody else, and confronting him about Todd not wanting him to be nominated. BoJack claims Todd owes him for everything he’s done for him the last couple of years.

Todd replies that he was only nice to him because he felt bad about Emily. BoJack asks if he knew he had sex with her, to which Todd, shocked by this, says he didn't know, and says he thought he have one of his “weird monologues” about how sad he is, and it bummed her out.

BoJack tried to apologize, but Todd finally snaps and tells BoJack “You can't keep doing this! You can't keep doing shitty things and then feel bad about yourself as if that makes it okay! You need to be better!"

BoJack says he knows and that he was drunk and under a lot of pressure with the Oscar campaign. As he begins to say now that it’s all over, Todd cuts him off and says, “No! No, BoJack, just...Stop. You are all the things that are wrong with you. It's not the alcohol, or the drugs, or any of the shitty things that happened to you in your career or when you were a kid. It's you. Alright? It's you. Todd ends his speech by saying Fuck, man... What else is there to say?," showing that BoJack has once again destroyed a relationship.

In the Season 3 finale, That Went Well, Mr. Peanutbutter sells Cabracadabra, and Todd receives eight million dollars. As he is about to leave the Cabracadabra headquarters to celebrate his new wealth, he runs into Emily, and the two reconcile by agreeing to go hang out.

Todd and Emily have ice cream and discuss what they're going to do with their eight million dollars.

Emily, then asks Todd if he's gay, which Todd quickly denies. However, he doesn’t think he’s straight either, thinking instead that he may be nothing—implying he’s asexual. Emily accepts him for who he is.

They get the bill and Todd discovers he tipped the waitresses eight million dollars, and he’s broke again, although he and Emily just laugh this off.

In Stupid Piece of Sh*t Todd is asked by Princess Carolyn and Rutabaga Rabitowitz to enter a sham wedding with Courtney Portnoy. Todd says he does not want to get married. Princess Carolyn says that they can draw up a sham marriage contract and that he'd stay married for three years and get a huge payout at the end.

Todd asks Diane for advice and she tells him marriage is a lie that you can't promise to be with someone to be with them forever. Todd thanks her and says she has given him a lot to think about. He then decides not to go through with the wedding.

In Underground Princess Carolyn and Todd help mediate for an ant colony in exchange for being returned to the surface after Mr. Peanutbutter's house sinks during a campaign gala due to a fracking incident.

In The Judge Mr. Peanutbutter and Todd come up with their clown dentist business idea.

In Lovin that cali lifestyle!!, Todd is approached by Yolanda Buenaventura, a representative of Better Business Bureau. She comes to him because his clown dentist practice is not getting great reviews due to most of the dentists not being actually licensed, and most of the children finding them frightening.

However, Todd proposes that he could turn his business into an entertainment company. He makes a deal that if he could make an entertaining show for Yolanda in a week, she would make them a legitimate business. If not, he will dissolve the business and set the clowns loose into the woods, and Yolanda agrees to the deal.

Later, Todd struggles to get the clowns to practice, while Princess Carolyn has turned to drinking heavily due to the events of Ruthie. She is called back into work for a meeting with an inspiring writer, Flip McVicker, but while she is ready to shoot down his TV show premise. However, she changes her mind when she sees the script, and that the title is Philbert—which was going to be the name of the baby she miscarried in the previous episode.

Now determined to get the project green-lit, she asks Todd to get a meeting with her with Lenny Turteltaub before passing out. Deciding to use it as an opportunity to practice, Todd and the clowns manage to get Princess Carolyn to her meeting with Turteltaub. Turteltaub suggests that she pitches the show to WhatTimeIsItRightNow.com, but when he asks who was the actor playing Philbert, she told him she didn’t have a lead actor yet.

He tells her he won’t pick it up unless she had a lead actor. She quickly listed multiple actors, but Lenny isn’t interested in any of them. She then blurts out BoJack Horseman's name, who Lenny thinks would be perfect for, although he ran out on both Secretariat and Ethan Around. He tells Princess Carolyn to make BoJack sign a contract to finish the deal (and to ensure he won’t run off again).

One week later, Todd and the clowns present their show to Yolanda, but it fails to impress her, and Todd is forced to uphold his end of the deal. Meanwhile, Princess Carolyn's assistant Stuart reminds her about the pitch meeting to WhatTimeIsItRightNow.com, and she realizes that she procrastinated in getting BoJack to sign the contract. Despite trying to call him, BoJack hangs up, angrily saying he’s busy, leaving Princess Carolyn to forge his signature.

In What Time Is It Right Now, Princess Carolyn's assistant brings her home as she went on another drinking bender, and Todd brings her into the woods and ties her to a dentist chair to tell her to get herself together. Princess Carolyn, however, laments that when they find out that she forged BoJack's signature, the deal will end and her reputation and career will be over and she will be left with nothing.

Todd, however, tells her that she doesn't need a family to have a child, and the only way out is through. This helps lifts Princess Carolyn's spirits. However, they soon find the clown dentists Todd left behind are acting strange, and escape from them when they attack the two.

It turns out that one of the clowns got infected with rabies from a raccoon and the other clowns also got infected as a result. Todd calls up Yolanda and convinces her to help him since she's partially responsible for the clowns being in the forest and it could damage the Better Business Bureau's reputation if word gets out.

Todd and Yolanda are planning a trap to capture rabies infected clown dentists, but their plans fall apart and are forced to run off. When they get to a safe distance, a panting Yolanda remarks that she doesn't run much and needs to get in better shape, sparking inspiration from Todd. He makes a new business with the clowns now called "Run For Your Life: Escape The Rabid Clown Dentists!" which has people run away from the rabies clown dentists and gets them in better shape.

This new business is deemed "better" by Yolanda, and Todd thanks Yolanda for her help. Before Yolanda leaves, she offers to take Todd on a date revealing herself as asexual as well, with a stunned Todd blissfully realizing that this is good for him.

In The Light Bulb Scene, At Princess Carolyn's apartment, she leaves as Yolanda and Todd prepare for the day. Yolanda is concerned Todd isn't doing anything particularly useful with his day.

Emily and her buff firefighter boyfriend, Steve, are out to dinner with Yolanda and Todd. Todd thinks up the idea to create a dating app for asexuals. Yolanda says asexuals who aren’t also aromantic are a small user base, but Todd says it's a great idea. He states that otherwise asexuals would just settle for other asexuals that they meet, even if they have nothing else in common. Yolanda defensively says that could be a good thing.

Yolanda and Todd are driving home. Yolanda tells Todd that she feels weird that Todd doesn't have a job or any direction in life.

Todd arrives home to find BoJack waiting for Princess Carolyn. He asks BoJack to help him find a job. BoJack tells him to interview for a job at What Time Is It Right Now.com as a janitor so that he can sneak into one of the Executive's office so that he can send an e-mail to Flip banning him from filming any more nude scenes.

In Planned Obsolescence, Yolanda goes to pick up Todd from WhatTimeIsItRightNow. They're going to meet Yolanda's parents, but Yolanda tells Todd that she hasn't told them that she's asexual. She asks Todd if just for tonight they can pretend to be sexually active. Todd agrees but says that her parents probably wouldn't bring up that topic during dinner. Yolanda reluctantly agrees.

Todd and Yolanda are having dinner with her family, where it's revealed they're sex obsessed—her father is an erotic novelist, her mother Angelica is a famous adult film star, and her identical twin sister Mindy is a sex adviser columnist. After Todd becomes uncomfortable when Mindy hits on him, he and Yolanda try to leave, but Yolanda's parents insist they stay the night and make love in their house. Yolanda reluctantly says yes to this offer.

Todd and Yolanda are in Yolanda's bedroom. When Todd tells Yolanda about Mindy hitting on him, she reveals in high school, when she was still trying to figure out her sexuality, she dressed like Mindy and almost slept with her boyfriend, but realized she wasn't into it and backed out. However, Mindy found out and likely wants to get back at her.

Yolanda's mom, Angelica, asks Todd for some help moving something. Todd goes to help her but when he gets to her room she drops her robe and exposes herself. When Todd does not show signs of being aroused, Angelica confirms her theory that he is asexual. Todd accidentally blurts out a confirmation to this and runs out.

However, he gets pulled into Mindy's room, and she tells him to meet her under the oak tree at midnight for sex. Todd escapes and gets back to Yolanda's room and tells her what happened. Yolanda comes up with a plan—after Mindy leaves for the oak tree outside, she'll dress up as Mindy, and tell their mom that Todd made a pass at her.

At midnight, after Mindy leaves Yolanda sneaks into her bedroom to steal her clothes. However, Angelica arrives in Yolanda's room and corners Todd, revealing she researched asexuality and is fascinated by it, and she still wants Todd to seduce her—asexually.

Mindy returns to her bedroom, mad that Todd stood her up, and sees Yolanda's clothes on the floor, which gives her a devious idea.

Yolanda, dressed as Mindy, knocks on her mom's door but hears Mindy being called by their father, so she goes to see him. Todd tells Angelica to go put on every piece of clothing she owns because asexuals do that so they don't appear sexy.

Yolanda's dad shows "Mindy" a barrel of her grandmother's secret lubricant that he wants to give Yolanda, and tells her it's worth $100,000 dollars. Mindy goes into Yolanda's room pretending to be Yolanda and tries to seduce Todd, although the real Yolanda comes in telling Todd about the lube.

She notices Mindy dressed like her, and they start wrestling.

They bring the fight out into the hall and accidentally open the lube barrel causing it to spill everywhere. Yolanda's dad tells Todd to plug the hole with his erect penis, but Todd, not wanting to blow his and Yolanda's covers, tries to pull his show off to use his big toe, calling it "the penis of the foot." He ends up slipping and pushing the barrel over the edge of the banister, and it falls and breaks, covering everyone and the entire living room in lube. This escalates the fighting.

Yolanda's family continues to fight each other. Yolanda's dad is furious at Todd for destroying their family heirloom, and Todd slips out of the house on the lube as he says sorry. As Yolanda and Mindy fight, Mindy then brings up the incident with her boyfriend in high school. Yolanda finally admits she didn't actually sleep with him, and as she pushes Mindy off of her—yells that she's asexual, surprising everyone.

On the car ride home, it's revealed Yolanda's family was very accepting of her asexuality.

However, Todd asks Yolanda why she lied and told her parents that he went to college. She tells him that she wanted to make him look impressive.

Todd tells Yolanda they need to break up because the only thing they have in common is that they're asexual.

However, he makes a deal with her that if they haven't found anyone by the time that they're one hundred, they'll get back together.

Todd gets dropped off, and when he turns around, Yolanda has left.

In BoJack the Feminist, Mr. Peanutbutter goes to WhatTimeIsItRightNow, telling Todd, that Hollywoo producers don't think he's tough enough. He asks Todd to teach him how to be tough.

Princess Carolyn later goes to Todd's office at WhatTimeIsItRightNow, and asks him for her own office on set.

Todd and Princess Carolyn are with their mediator, Mary-Beth. Todd tells the story of how he was so excited to melt his string cheese and turn it into a "mozzarella Cinderella," but Princess Carolyn ate it. Princess Carolyn denies that she ate it. They continue to argue while the mediator tries to calm them down.

Meanwhile, Princess Carolyn and Todd have been arguing for two hours. Todd leaves to go to the bathroom leaving Princess Carolyn alone with the mediator. Mary-Beth tells Princess Carolyn that she should lie to Todd about taking the cheese just to avoid a fight.

Princess Carolyn begrudgingly does this but continues on to say that the string cheese was fair game. This angers Todd, who argues what is and isn't a fair game food, making a list on but Princess Carolyn argues back it's her apartment so everything should be fair game for her. This angers Todd who declares that they are going to arbitration, to Mary-Beth's dismay.

Princess Carolyn and Todd are back at her apartment, setting boundaries for themselves. Mary-Beth calls Todd and says she realized Princess Carolyn was on set the whole day that the cheese was missing, so she couldn't have taken it.

Todd tells this to Princess Carolyn and admits that he wanted this to be a work dispute so she wouldn't kick him out. Princess Carolyn tells him that she likes having him here, but she also needs her own space. He says he wants to help her pay rent and agrees to give her an office on site. He goes in his jacket for his pen but finds the missing string cheese instead.

In Mr. Peanutbutter's Boos, in a flashback from 2004 Princess Carolyn answers the door to find three teenage Trick-or-Treaters.

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

In 2009, Princess Carolyn again answers the door at the annual Halloween Party, and this time allows Todd (now eighteen) to come into the party. He compliments the house, and Princess Carolyn says it's her boyfriend's. Todd questions why her boyfriend makes her answer the door.

Princess Carolyn begins to deny this but suddenly has an epiphany, questioning what she's doing with her life, and saying she came to L.A. when she was eighteen and is already thirty-five. She rushes out the door and passes the box of screeners to Todd, leaving him with the responsibility.

The party has ended. BoJack hangs up with his mom but promises to help figure out what they're going to do for his dad's funeral, and genuinely tells her he's sorry. He goes back into the house to learn from Todd that the party is over. BoJack laments that he thought he would feel something when this (one of his parents dying) happened, but he doesn't. Todd offers to stick around for a bit, and BoJack agrees and tells him to stick around as long as he wants.

In 2018, Diane wants to leave the Halloween party, 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.

In Ancient History, Todd gets a visit from Emily at work—who tells him that she broke up with her fireman boyfriend, Doug. She says the sex was great but they had no emotional connection. Todd says that's why he and Yolanda broke up; they had no real connection besides being asexual.

Emily then presents him with a new app she made—All About That Ace, a dating app for asexuals, which she said was his idea although he doesn't remember. She admit he was the best boyfriend she ever had, and she wished there was a version of him she could have sex with.

Todd visits Diane at her apartment, and asks for her help brainstorming something nice to do for Emily. He tells her she likes sex, which Diane replies is good that she knows her own body before she gives it to someone else. Todd forgets what they were talking about, and Diane reminds him it was sex. He suddenly gets an idea and runs out.

Emily is at Todd's apartment, where Todd has set up romantic candles and is wearing a robe, although he says he blew a fuse earlier and didn't have time to change clothes.

He then reveals to her his new invention—Henry Fondle, a sex robot, which has dildos on it and says "sexy phrases" from a Mr. Spell toy.

Emily is dumbfounded by this, and she tells Todd she doesn't think he knows how sex works. Todd defensively affirms he does know—its his first time building a robot, in one afternoon at that. He thinks it turned out pretty great for a first attempt. Emily tells him it was a sweet gesture. However, Henry Fondle knocks over some candles and sets the floor on fire.

Emily thanks Doug the fireman for having come and put the fire out. Todd apologizes, and tells her that the only reason he created the robot was so that she'd have more time to spend with him and pleasure herself.

Emily and Todd both admit it would be great if they dated again, but Emily doesn't what to have sex with the robot. She then says when she was researching for the dating app, she learned some asexuals do have sex, but Todd rejects. Emily asks if he has any other ideas, and he says what if marbles were cube shaped. Emily responds with, "no dice."

Todd says goodbye to Henry Fondle but his sex robot says "Let's get down to business," making Todd think it wants to go to work with him. Henry repeatedly saying "Yes" convinces him. Todd leaves Henry Fondle in his office and warns him to be on his best behavior as he heads out. However, Henry Fondle makes his way out of Todd's office.

Henry Fondle ends up managing to "convince" the CEO of WhatTimeIsItRightNow.com to give him his job. Todd is unsure about this, but the CEO seems to be moved enough to go through with this. The CEO has Todd take Henry with him to the Philbert premiere after Henry "insists" by saying "I’m coming. Oh God, I’m coming."

Todd asks Henry Fondle how he liked the show, and the robot says "More, more!" and "Give it to me!" Princess Carolyn hears this and tells Flip that they're being renewed for a second season.

In The Showstopper, An ad featuring Todd, at the desk of his office, is shown. He tells the audience he hopes they're enjoying Philbert, but begins to freak out because he was supposed to sell ads for the show and didn't. He says that he needs to get thirty million dollars worth of ads, so if anyone out there wants to he's willing to say yes to anything.

BoJack develops a strange conspiracy theory, that Todd is out to get him, during his drug bender.

He drives away, and as he does he swallows another bottle of pills.

He barges into Todd's office and goes off on a tangent as Todd tries to say it wasn't him. Todd does end up revealing that he gave a pharmaceutical the rights to use Philbert characters to sell their products. BoJack accidentally knocks over multiple cardboard cutouts made for this, and Henry Fondle turns on, with a Fritz cutout stuck to the front of him. BoJack thinks "Fritz" is going to shoot him.

As he tries to chase the robot, Todd and the walls around BoJack become set pieces, and fall down around him, leaving him in an empty set.

In the Don't Stop Dancing 'Til The Curtains Fall song number, sung by Gina Cazador, Todd is seen as one of the people BoJack has hurt.

In The Stopped Show, the episode begins at Todd's office at WhatTimeIsItRightNow.com. Todd is angry with Flip and Princess Carolyn for stopping production on Philbert, due to, as they put it, someone (Gina) getting "a little strangled," which some crew members filmed and might leak to the press.

Todd wants to pull the plug on production to "cut losses." However, after Flip and Princess Carolyn protest, he reluctantly agrees to give them one more chance to fix things.

Todd and Henry Fondle are walking out of WhatTimeIsItRightNow.com, when another executive offers Henry a job, despite him just getting fired for sexual allegations—the executive says that just means he's learned his lesson and ready to start over. Todd tells Henry Fondle he wants to show him something.

Todd takes Henry Fondle out to a field with a lone tree on it, telling him this is his special thinking spot. As Henry Fondle continues to say lewd sexual phrases, one of them being "I love it when you call me father," Todd "kills" Henry by electrocuting him with a taser. As he "dies," Henry Fondle's phrases distort into "I love you, father." Todd, with a sense of relief now that all of this is over, removes his suit to reveal he had his normal clothes under it the whole time, and runs off.

He goes to the balcony and asks the people he sees running what's going on. A gentleman in a suit informs him, an ice cream truck crashed into the root beer factory. Todd remarks that sounds like a delicious disaster. The man then goes on to say five people are dead, and there is worse to come unless someone can slurp up all the ice cream. Todd says he'd love to help consume the ice cream, but he has a new nannying job. The man then runs off with his arms raised, yelling he doesn't care. Todd strokes his chin and ponders over this.

BoJack then calls Todd, and one of Todd's assistants named Georgette answers. Todd then says BoJack is probably wondering about Georgette. BoJack says no. He then explains he can't perform his normal "Todd functions," since he became Ruthie's nanny, and stuff has been falling through the cracks. BoJack then asks if Todd hired an assistant. Todd says assistants are like Deadpool movies. He says he couldn't just stop at one, though he probably should have, and now has twelve of them. BoJack then asks in disbelief about Todd hiring twelve assistants to help him. He then talks about each of the assistants and their various assigned roles.

Todd says one of the assistants checks All About That Ace. BoJack then asks what All About That Ace is. Todd then explains it's his asexual dating app, but as for right now, he is the only user. BoJack says that makes as much sense as the rest of it. BoJack tells him he is leaving rehab shortly, and he admits with some difficulty that he can not do this alone. Todd then says he's got BoJack's back and tells him to wait a jiffy.

BoJack is packing his things when he is startled by a woman in his room. She introduces herself as Casey, and says she's an assistant, sent by Todd, to be BoJack's new best friend. BoJack says he's good, then admits that's kind of thoughtful. Casey explains, Todd said she'd be ideal, because he could be mean to her, and he wouldn't have to feel bad—because that's what she's getting paid for. She says she is flexible and can make herself into whatever BoJack needs.

He then sends BoJack an assistant named Casey. BoJack tells Casey to have some respect for herself and she starts texting other assistants which then leads to the assistants' strike. Assistants all over town are seen leaving their respective jobs, and Todd's assistants also leave him, he then yells that he's grown too dependant on them.

In The Kidney Stays in the Picture, Todd's stepfather comes to Princess Carolyn's apartment and tells him his mother is in a coma and needs a kidney transplant. He put her on the donor list but he thought Todd would be a good match. Todd explains he would give his kidney but he sold it to buy sock puppets. Jorge says coming over was a mistake and Todd says they can go to the organ market. He puts Ruthie in her carrier taking her with them.

They go to the organ market and find out all the organs have been bought out by Whitewhale. Todd then decides to buy anesthesia and drugs Jorge with it. Jorge then wakes up in Chicago in Guy and Diane's apartment, after being knocked out and kidnapped by Todd. Todd, Diane, and Guy are talking about the holiday party at Whitewhale, and sneaking in. Diane and Guy introduce themselves and inform him he was kidnapped across state lines. Jorge is angered by all this. Todd throws his arms up in the air excitedly and says they are going to break into the Whitewhale building. Jorge asks why. Todd says so they can get his kidney back and save his mother.

Todd says he also wants to prove to Jorge once and for all he is not some "wacky screw-up who engages primarily in goofy whimsical mess-arounds." Jorge asks how they got him on the plane and Todd tells him they did a Weekend At Bernie's. Todd then shows him pictures on his phone, where he put sunglasses on Jorge, and then they were on the plane and went sightseeing. Jorge then groans at this.

Diane then brings them back to the topic of the holiday party at Whitewhale. She tells Todd she can use her employee ID to get in, as she is still technically on the payroll.

Todd and Jorge strategize about their plan for getting the kidney back. Todd says they need to sneak into the party, find out where the kidneys are, retrieve his kidney, and sneak out all without drawing attention to themselves. Guy and Diane walk back in, and Guy cautions them saying if Jeremiah Whitewhale catches them, he is legally allowed to murder them. Jorge says this plan is ludicrous.

Todd then tells Jorge, that instead of criticizing him like he has done his entire life, he could get on board. Todd then tells him their plan will work out, and Jorge tells him things don't just work out. Todd tells Jorge he doesn't understand why he has to be so negative. Todd then asks if he wants to help his mother or just go back to the hospital and wait. Jorge sighs and says he's in, which Todd smiles at.

At the Whitewhale building, Todd says he's going into the Christmas party. Jorge makes him promise to be perspicacious in there. Todd replies that he doesn't even know what the word means. Jorge sighs at this. Todd goes to the main entrance with Diane's ID. The shark man at the door asks if Todd's Diane Nguyen. He then says he finds that very hard to believe Todd is Diane. Todd then says that's racist. Todd then lots of people don't look like their last names, he uses himself as an example, saying he is white but his last name is Chavez. The shark then says he thought Todd's last name was Nguyen. Todd then says, yes that's his name, Todd Nguyen. The Shark then asks him, not Diane Nguyen. Todd then says that's his name alright, or he isn't Todd Chavez.

Todd then tells Jorge that was a bust. Todd says Jorge can be Diane and he can Jorge. Jorge then gets an idea and tells him to get in the trash can. Todd misunderstands and says he knows he's a disappointment to Jorge but he does not belong in a trash can, and he hasn't lived in one for several years. Jorge then picks up Todd and puts him in the trash can. Jorge then pretends to be a custodian wheeling the trash can inside. He speaks Spanish to the shark man and points to the door. The man lets him go inside. Todd then says that was amazing and Jorge tells him no, it was straightforward and logical.

They go up the elevator to the warehouse, where they locate the kidney.

While they are waiting for the request, Jorge thanks Todd for coming with him to get the kidney, saying after his mother is OK, he and Todd's mother will never bother Todd again. Jorge says he knows that's what Todd wants. Todd then questions why he'd want that. Jorge shrugs in response. Todd says Jorge never understood him.

Jorge says he raised Todd as his own flesh, and he was tough on him because he expected big things from him. Todd tells Jorge he wasn't tough he was mean. Jorge says because the world is mean and Todd says not his world. Jorge says he wanted Todd to be his best for Todd and to push him to be his best self. Jorge says he sees how he failed Todd. Todd counters Jorge didn't fail him and he's not a failure. Jorge sighs and says OK to this.

Todd then asks why Jorge needs to be proud of him on his terms, and why he can't see Todd is living a good life. Todd then says he has a good life with a job and friends. Jorge says he sleeps on the couch and plays with puppets all day. Todd then says he's happy and asks what more Jorge wants from him. Jorge tells Todd he wants to know that he's OK. Todd then asks why he hasn't called in ten years. Jorge starts to say he wanted to but then cuts himself off and tells Todd his mother loves him but she's very proud. Jorge says if Todd calls she'll talk to him. Todd then points out she can't talk now because she's in a coma. Jorge sadly sighs and says yeah.

Diane is watching the shadows of Jorge and Todd from the parking ramp through a pair of binoculars and wonders what they are talking about. Diane then notices the security guard riding up the elevator. Diane tries to call the Chavezes on her walkie-talkie. The other walkie talkie is seen in the dish rack in the kitchen of the apartment. Guy picks it up and asks why the walkie-talkie is in the kitchen.

The security guard comes up and thinks Todd is being attacked by Jorge. Todd explains they were just locating the kidney for his mother, and this was all a misunderstanding. The security guard lets them take the kidney, as Whitewhale has hundreds of them.

At the hospital, Jorge apologizes for being so tough on Todd growing up. Jorge apologizes to Todd for being hard on him as a child. He explains he was trying to protect Todd and nothing came easy for him and he only got to where he was today through hard work. He says he should have realized Todd's white. They are informed his mother is awake. Jorge asks if he wants to say hello and Todd says she has his number and can call him as he starts walking away. Jorge tells him that's cold. Todd asks what does Jorge expect seeing he's a Chavez.

In The Face of Depression, BoJack meets Todd at Silver Spoon Diner. He says his house is a reminder of how awful he's been which Todd agrees to. Todd then takes a bunch of selfies which he says are for his asexual dating app, he explains he wants to stay current, for when someone besides himself joins. BoJack sounding somewhat disinterested agrees that he needs to stay current. Todd then says he can finally fill in space for a job because he is now a nanny. BoJack observes Todd has really gotten into his role as a nanny. Todd expresses his love of it and says it's amazing holding a baby and thinking they are perfect. BoJack says he can't imagine.

Todd then goes on to say someone probably held him and thought the same thing. He then asks what happened. BoJack questions what he means. Todd then says moms are weird. BoJack then agrees and says moms are weird. Todd then questions if BoJack will keep getting lunch with his friends. BoJack then tells him about the stewardess at the AA meeting who talked about waking up in a different place every day. BoJack then says he thought that sounded perfect, as every city would have a clean slate.

At Princess Carolyn's apartment, Todd watches Ruthie sleep. He is about to call his mother when he gets a match on the dating app with Maude, the barista BoJack met at the airport Cinnabunny.
