Characters Present


Taffy and the babies are at the park and she tries to sing Pat a Cake but the lyric sheet blows away and a man stabs it and is about to throw it away. This is the beginning of a temporary friendship between the two as she thinks he's eco conscious. He teaches Phil how to pick up the trash which he takes seriously to the dismay of Lil as she then can't play with him as he's too busy. A woman shows up and reveals that the trash picking up was a punishment and worse one for littering which makes Taffy not friends with him. Phil stops being friends with the man as well as he throws the trash away instead of letting him play in it, and Taffy sings them Pat A Cake.


Lil: How about a scoop of sand in your diapey?

Phil: You gots to ask? (lifting up shirt and exposes his belly button)

Lil: I got my old Phil back.

Phil: (still with his bellybutton exposed) Hey you're not mad at me for ruining all the fun?


  • This is the first time where Phil shows his belly button.
  • Drake Bell voices Dusty in this episode and Amanda Bynes voices Taffy. Ironically the two actors were also in another '90s Nick show together called The Amanda Show.
