Stuffy: Just so you know, I've got the greatest hiding place of all time.
Lambie: Too bad I'm gonna be the last lamb standing.
Stuffy: (about Squibbles) Whoever owns him, you can have him back now!
Chilly: (about Squibbles) Ah, he's the strong and silent type, like me. (Lambie looks at him) I'm not the strong silent type at all, am I? I'm more loud and squishy.
Lambie: Yep. But I wouldn't have you any other way.
Doc: (about Squibbles) Stuffy, I don't think he can understand you.
Stuffy: I'll say it slower. Please...stop...following...me!
Doc: (Giggles) No, I don't think he understands you, because he doesn't know how to talk. He's a toy pet. Here little guy. Come on. Come here.
Stuffy: Oh, he's a toy pet. Well that explains a lot. (Squibbles goes up to him) Except for the fact that he won't leave me alone! IT DOESN'T EXPLAIN THAT!
Stuffy: (about Squibbles) Is he...okay? I mean, not that I care or anything, but is he?
Doc: I know who he'll follow.
Stuffy: Who? Oh, right, me. Okay, okay, I'll do it. Here, Squibbles! Here, boy! (Brings Squibbles into the pet vet clinic) Okay, here he is. (Squibbles barks)
Doc: Great. Now I just need you to hold him.
Stuffy: Really? Can't I just leave him?
Lambie: Someone doesn't like that idea.
Doc: Stuffy, he's a pet. So he doesn't understand that a checkup is good for him. That's why he needs you.
Stuffy: Okay, okay, I'll hold him.
Stuffy: Squibbles, we have lots of room and love. And we'd love you to stay. This will be your forever home. What I'm saying is if you'll have me, I'll have you. (Squibbles happily barks and jumps into Stuffy's arms)

- Toys that debut in this episode: Squibbles
- This episode is a double-length story.
- Stuffy sings "I Feel Better" for Squibbles.

- This is the third 30 minute episode.
- This is the thirteenth time Stuffy cries.
- Stuffy states that he is going to love Squibbles and hug him "and call him George." This is a reference to a gag from the classic animated series Looney Tunes, in which a character called the Abominable Snowman would nearly smother animals, such as Bugs Bunny, to death, while calling them "George." When Squibbles whimpers upon hearing this, Stuffy states that they'll stick with "Squibbles."
- This is really the first Season 3 episode in production order.
