This particular episode may initially appear crude, but it actually has a more subtle approach. It centers around the endearing but foolish character, Cardi, attempting to take a rabbit from a golf club raffle.

The climax of the episode is marked by Carol breaking into song, which surprisingly fits well with the story.
