Ted is not feeling well, he has a toothache. There is not a lot of sympathy from the family and they delight in his pain and whinging. He is very reluctant to go to the dentist but eventually Greta convinces him to visit the dentist for whom she works. However, he runs out before the dentist can fix his teeth. Ted is having problems with a local poodle, which keeps biting them. So he covers it in blue paint. Unfortunately, he finds out too late who owns the poodle.
