Boober plans to have a nice quiet day by himself, but then he's visited by his silly dream alter-ego Sidebottom following various interruptions by the other Fraggles. At Sidebottom's urging, Boober lies to his friends in order to spend the day alone, but his lies build on each other -- and Boober is stuck impersonating the Old Gypsy Lady.
- The Old Gypsy Lady is another Fraggle who travels through the caves in Fraggle Rock, like Cantus the Minstrel. The Gypsy Lady's appearance in a particular Fraggle settlement is a cause for great celebration, and she wanders so far that the young Fraggles in this group have never met her before.
- This is Sidebottom's second appearance in Boober's life (he seems to have gotten a haircut), and the first one outside of his dreams. It's also the first appearance in which Tosh Fraggle, a minor, recurring Fraggle friend, is named. She previously appeared in episodes Red's Club and Manny's Land of Carpets as a background character.
