The episode starts with Nicole looking frantically through various cabinets in their house. Anais asks her what she is doing, so she clarifies that she is trying to find somewhere to put a hideous vase. Despite attempting to pretend she appreciates it, which was a present from Granny Jojo, the kids see through her. Darwin questions why she accepted it in the first place, causing Nicole to emphasize how imperative it is that adults lie and suppress their feelings for eternity. She has a change of heart, however, once she realizes that it was regifted to them, showing that Granny Jojo put no thought into it at all. Gumball then suggests that Nicole break the vase deliberately, staging it as an accident, but at the risk of being a bad role, she convinces the kids to take the matter into their own hands.
