Later, Jimmy tries again to get Kitten to explain why he's so upset. A mysterious man reveals himself as The Banker, who plays the Love Songs with Mr. Lunt segment "His Cheeseburger". "His Cheeseburger" is the song which Mr. Lunt sings about one vegetable's love for a cheeseburger. After the song, Jimmy angrily confronts Archibald over his actions, and Archibald admits it's his fault that Larry is so upset. Archibald argues that he was looking out for the show's standards, but then opens his briefcase to reveal a stack of signed papers from fans, asking that Lazarus Mushroom forgives Kitten and restores his segment to the show.
Lazarus Mushroom appears with his family of Mushroom and at first tries to avoid being recognized by Kitten, but eventually he reveals herself Now understanding the reason for Kitten's distress, Poll becomes angry at The Banker and stands up for Kitten, stating that he would feel the same way if he were in Kitten's position.

Lazarus Mushroom then lets Kitten know that he can perform Silly Songs again.
