Picture Segment Description

SCENE 1 Oscar attempts to separate Irvine from her blanket; he wishes to put it through a mud wash to make it even dirtier, but Irvine refuses to give it up. When he gives up, Maria (having been through the situation before with Gabi) offers to help. Her solution is to get Irvine to exchange her blanket for her squeeze-toy alligator. She keeps both instead.
SCENE 2 Oscar attempts to trick Irvine into dropping the blanket, but that also fails. Maria presses onward and talks Irvine into getting it washed. Irvine now wants to wash her blanket, and even gets to put it in herself! Maria is proud of her idea, until she gets a face full of mud from inside the can.
SCENE 3 Irvine now cries since she misses her blanket, and Maria notices how upset she sounds. Oscar puts on a trashy videotape to keep her mind off it...

SCENE 5 Oscar returns with Irvine's blanket, which she immediately grabs and cuddles. He then tells Maria to scram before she upsets Irvine any further. She announces the sponsors before she leaves.
