A Bad Case of the Pricklethorns
Before playing "Save Princess Lambie", Doc discovers that Donny's toy knight, Sir Kirby, is dirty, so he has to take a bath.
Doc and the toys are playing Princess Lambie in the castle. Lambie asks Doc if they could get a knight in shining armor to rescue her. Doc likes the idea and she tells Stuffy that he could be the scary dragon in the game. Doc remembers that Donny had a toy knight that he used to play with all the time and goes to ask her younger brother if she could burrow the toy knight for the game.
After talking to Donny, Doc comes back to her room with the toy knight. She brings him to life and he introduces himself as Sir Kirby. As they are playing the game, Sir Kirby ends up getting stuck to everything. So Doc stops the game to give Sir Kirby a checkup. Upon doing so Doc discovers that Sir Kirby is covered in grape jelly and pizza cheese and hasn't been cleaned in a long time. So she prescribes a bath for him so he will get all cleaned up and fit to play.

- Stuffy: A knight? Then what do I get to be?
- Doc: Well, you could be...the scary dragon!

- Lambie: Stuffy, you are a dragon!
- Stuffy: Oh, haha yeah... I knew that.
- Doc: Hmmm... Donny used to have a toy knight that he played with all the time.
- Lambie: I remember that knight. He was really brave! Shiny, too.
- Hallie: Oh! A brave, shiny knight all dressed up in armor? Oh, I sure like the sound of that!
- Lambie: Can we play with him, Doc? Can we, can we, can we please? It would make Princess Lambie royally happy. [Doc, Stuffy and Hallie giggle] Let me see if Donny will let me borrow him.
- Doc: [Looks at Sir Kirby's armor with a magnifying glass) Hmm, that's something I've never seen before!
- Sir Kirby: What? What is it? Was my armor burned by a scary, fire-breathing dragon? Or better still zapped by the spell of a wicked witch?
- Doc: No, not that. It kind of looks like you're covered in grape jelly and pizza cheese.
