It's Mother's Day and Muriel insists that Eustace goes to see her. Dreading this, Eustace asks Muriel to come with him. Muriel refuses, as she is not fond of Ma Bagge . She suggests that Eustace take Courage. At first Eustace refuses to take him and Courage begins to celebrate. Eventually Eustace takes up the offer saying "He's better than nobody." During the car ride , Eustace informs courage of his plan to have an excuse to leave his mothers house. Which is visicuously attacking Ma Bagge when Eustace "gives him the high sign"; scratching his cheek. When Eustace and Courage arrive at Ma's trailer, Ma completely ignores Eustace's greeting and proceeds to greeting Courage, whom she is very fond of. She then proceeds to calling Eustace a "stupid boy". Eustace scratches his cheek giving Courage the "high sign" , but Courage does not indulge. Eustace then becomes irrate and steps on Courage's foot, causing him to shout and jump on Ma. Eustace sees this as his opportunity to go along with his plan and shouts "mad dog! Mad dog!" And begins strangling Courage. Ma quickly defends Courage and body slams Eustace on the ground. The Bagge's proceed to having dinner together. Courage tried to help out Eustace by telling him to take off his hat so that he looks good in front of his mother. After doing so Ma tells him to put it back on because his head looked like a billiard ball. Ma then begins to go cook food for courage , stating he looked hungry and blamed Eustace.
