[The episode starts off with K.O. feeding Baby Teeth]
K.O.: Shake-a, shake-a! Shake-a, shake-a, shake-a, shake-a! Shake-a! Who’s hungry?! [Laughs] [Baby Teeth barks] Dibbles for Baby Teeth! [Baby Teeth eats her meal] [Smacks lips] I sure could use some K.O. Dibble. [Cellphone buzzes] Ooh! It’s mommy!
Carol: [Message] “Dear K.O., dinner!” [K.O. gasps] “We’re having spaghetti!” [Echos] Spaghetti! Spaghetti! Spaghetti!
K.O.: [Runs out of the store] Spa…ghetti! Spaghetti! Spa…ghetti! [Approaches to his house]
Carol: Welcome home, sweetie!
K.O.: Spaghetti. [Eats spaghetti but sees olives] Ugh! Olives? Mom. I hate olives. [Places spaghetti back on its plate]
Carol: Oh! I’m sorry, sweetie. My Nana’s recipe called for it. [Grabs a book out]
K.O.: [Gasps] What’s that? A spell book?
Carol: [Laughs] Kind of. [Opens book] You follow it to make tasty dinner. [Flips pages]
K.O.: [Gasps] You make dinner? I thought dinner came from the dinner man. [Imagines the Dinner Man giving dinner to Carol]
Dinner Man: Here is your dinner, ma’am.
Carol: Nah. It’s time I tell you where dinner comes from. When you’re at school, I go out shopping for ingredients. [Shows how she gets dinner] Then I follow instructions in my Nana’s book and, uh, make dinner! Voila!
K.O.: I didn’t know so much went into making dinner!
Carol: [Pokes K.O.’s nose] It’s fine, kiddo. Let me make you a new olive-less batch.
K.O.: No, I can make a jelly sandwich for myself.
Carol: Dah-ah! I’m cooking for you.
K.O.: [On the counter, thinking] She is doing so much hard work for dinner, and I’ve insulted her. How can I make this up to her? [Gasps] Mommy! What’s your favorite dinner?
Carol: That would be galaxy truffle pasta!
K.O.: [Writes on his notepad] Galaxy truffle…
Carol: But galaxy truffles are really hard to get. I haven’t had it in years.
K.O.: [Thinking] In years! I have to make the galaxy truffle pasta for her! And I know the perfect person to help.
Beardo: Galaxy truffle pasta? [Laughs]
K.O.: Hey! What’s so funny?
Beardo: K.O., galaxy truffles are incredibly rare ingredients. I’ve never even seen one, myself. This is way out of your league. Dream on!
K.O.: Okay. [Imagines him giving the pasta to Carol]
Carol: I can’t believe you made me some galaxy truffle pasta, even though it’s way out of your league!
K.O.: That was really nice. Now what?
Beardo: Now you move on and think of something else to cook. [Holds out a dough]
K.O.: I can’t do that, Beardo! [Beardo breathes fire to the dough] I’ll—I’ll look everywhere!
Beardo: Looking won’t help, K.O.. You can’t find galaxy truffle with your eyes. [Pulls out some ingredients from his pocket] You find them with your nose! [Crushes the ingredients and belches fire to them] You’ll need a dinosaur’s nose in order to sniff out a galaxy truffle.
K.O.: A dinose?! [Makes a dino call] [Baby Teeth comes to K.O.] Baby Teeth! [Laughs] [Baby Teeth licks K.O.]
Beardo: Yeah, yeah, he’ll do.
K.O.: Wanna help me find a galaxy truffle, girl? [Baby Teeth barks] So where can I find ‘em, Mr. Beardo?
Beardo: The mystical forest across the way.
K.O.: [Runs with Baby Teeth] Let;s go find us some galaxy truff—
Beardo: Wait! [Takes off apron] I will come with you.
K.O.: You will?
Beardo: [Carries his oven] I’ve always wanted to see a galaxy truffle in the flesh!
K.O.: Hooray! [Packs his bag]
[Baby Teeth smells Beardo’s hand and she goes finding the truffle]
[Beardo and K.O. follows Baby Teeth]
[Beardo picks some plants while Baby Teeth drinks the pond. They continue their journey. Baby Teeth barks]
K.O.: Baby Teeth! Wait up, buddy! [Gasps] You found… a rock?
Beardo: Under it, K.O..
K.O.: [Picks up the rock to see a truffle] It’s a gross lump!
Beardo: Hmm. This gross lump might be what we’ve been looking for. A bit different from what I—
K.O.: Aah! [The truffle is alive. Baby Teeth sniffs the truffle] Aww, they’re friends now. [The truffle eats Baby Teeth] Baby Teeth!
[The truffle spits out Baby Teeth as she runs away from the truffle. The truffle runs away]
K.O.: After that truffle! I got it! [Grunts] Huh? [The truffle giggles]
[Beardo tries to get the truffle until the truffle whacks him. Baby Teeth fails to get the truffle]
K.O.: How are we gonna catch this truffle?
Beardo: Don’t worry, kid. These truffles are a delicacy for the very reason they’re so elusive. Let’s set up camp for the night!
[K.O., Beardo, and Baby Teeth are by the campfire]
Baby Teeth: Ugh.
[K.O. sighs and his stomach grumbles]
Beardo: [Laughs] That tummy feeling a bit empty, are we? Well, not to worry. [Sets up his oven] I can take of that little issue. We’ll chop up the fresh forest ingredients. [Cooks]
K.O. and Baby Teeth: Whoa!
Beardo: Fire ‘em up! Now we put it all together! Top it off with love. Mwah! And I present to you forest delight. [Places the meal on top of the stump]
K.O.: Whoa! [Sniffs] Ooh!
[K.O. and Baby Teeth grabs the meal and eats it]
K.O.: The flavors of the forest. Beardo! [Gulps] How did you make forest crud so tasty? [Eats more]
Beardo: [Laughs] Kid, you just need to make good with what you got!
Baby Teeth [Rests on the ground with a big stomach] [Leaves are rustling] Huh?
[A truffle sticks out of the bushes]
[K.O., Beardo, and Baby Teeth chases the truffle. The truffle heads to the cave]
Beardo: It’s headed for the cave!
[A giant truffle comes out. The gang tries to run out but the truffle grabs them]
Mama Truffle: Who dare infiltrate the sacred galaxy truffle grounds and attack my truffle children?
[The truffle children laughs]
Beardo: Hey, Mama Truffle.
K.O.: May we have one of your truffle children to make galaxy pasta for my mom?
Mama Truffle: Children, we seem to have found dinner for tonight.
[K.O., Baby Teeth, and Beardo are tied up]
K.O.: Wait, we’re gonna be eaten instead?
[Baby Teeth whimpers]
Beardo: Eh. I’ve had a good life.
K.O.: What?! How can you be so calm about this, Beardo?!
Beardo: K.O., I am a chef. Becoming a delicious meal for another in my final hours? I could not ask for a greater honor. [Stands up] Mama Truffle! Thank you for choosing me as your dinner tonight. [Breaks out of the rope] I only hope that I am delicious and satisfying. [Enters the pot of soup]
K.O.: No! I’ll avenge you, Beardo! [Hugs Baby Teeth]
[Mama Truffle laughs. Beardo gets out the pot and coughs]
Beardo: This broth is awful!
K.O.: Beardo! You’re okay!
Mama Truffle: Hey! Get back in there!
Beardo: I refuse to be cooked in that garbage. [Unties K.O.] It was just so bland and tasteless that I couldn’t even tell what was in it.
Mama Truffle: Silence! That broth is a delicacy! It’s made with a little water and a whole lot of me! [Laughs. The truffles stir the pot]
K.O.: Is she taking a bath?
[A truffle pours the broth to the other truffles’ bowls. They eat it]
K.O.: Blecch! Are they eating her bath?
Beardo: No wonder this broth tastes so boring! It’s just truffle and water! Where’s the variety? Where’s the love?
Mama Truffle: Variety? Love? Hah! We are the perfect ingredient!
[Beardo takes out his ingredients from his pocket, crushes them and breathes fire on them]
Baby Teeth and K.O.: [Sniffs] Ahh!
[Mama Truffle and the other truffles smell the ingredients]
Mama Truffle: What are these tantalizing aromas?
Beardo: This is what variety and love smell like.
Mama Truffle: Will you cook it for moi?
Beardo: I thought you’d never ask! K.O.! Baby Teeth! Come, give me a hand.
Beardo: [Spreads the ingredients in the broth] We have a lot of galaxy truffles to feed! [Puts on his apron and turns on his stove]
[K.O. grabs the other ingredients. Beardo prepares them. K.O. pours the noodles over the boiling water. They cook more and Beardo puts “love” in the pasta]
Beardo: Mama Truffle, I hope you won’t mind that I used a bit of your precious broth in order to make a batch of galaxy truffle pasta! Bon appetit.
K.O.: Wow! I can’t believe we made that!
[Mama Truffle slides Beardo. Baby Teeth licks Beardo and he puts her. Mama Truffle and the truffles eat the pasta. They like it]
K.O.: Whoa, they really liked it.
Beardo: Huh. So that’s why they call them galaxy truffles. These little guys sparkle whenever they reach a euphoric state.
K.O.: They’re like perfect little stars.
[The truffles reached their euphoric state]
Mama Truffle: You outsiders have taught us much about the world today. So to thank you for your wisdom and compassion, we will no longer eat you. [Beardo picks his nose] Go now, in peace.
K.O.: Is it okay if I took a truffle back home with me?
Mama Truffle: No.
[They head back home. Beardo carries Baby Teeth as she’s sleeping]
K.O.: I can’t believe we’re coming home empty-handed. [Groans]
Beardo: Do you know what made our pasta truly delicious?
K.O.: Mama Truffle’s bathwater, right?
Beardo: Nope. It was love.
K.O.: Huh? Wait a minute! That thingy was love?
Beardo: Yep! If you cook with love, anything you cook will come out delicious.
K.O.: Wow. [Stops]
Beardo: It’s the ultimate spice.
[Continues walking. Next scene shows K.O. preparing a meal for Carol. Carol sits at the table patiently. K.O. puts glue around the platter and puts macaroni pieces. He puts honey on a piece of bread]
[The platter also has olives and a honey lettering saying “Olives rule. I heart u mommy.” K.O. puts an olive on a stick on the bread. Blows a kiss on it]
Carol: Uh, K.O.? I love it! [Hugs K.O.. Eats an olive]
K.O.: Bone apple tea.
