Mason Grance comes to the Doyles' door, utterly desperate. He's been bitten by a Robbie the Roughhouser doll and fears he's turning into one. As Frank and Sadie look on, he transforms. Mason then bites Frank.

When Sadie leaves the room to get medicinal alcohol, Franks transforms into a Robbie doll as well. Sadie returns, and Frank opens the door to let in even more Robbie dolls.

The dolls begin roughhousing, and Frank and Sadie realize they must find the alpha doll to break to curse. Frank questions the other dolls, and Sadie slashes its throat with Occam's Razor. The curse is broken, and the dolls transform back into their human selves.


Sadie: None of you lumps of plastic had better think of taking a bite out of me!
Robbie: Pfft, shows what you know! We don’t bite girls.

Robbie the Roughhouser Song

Sneakers, ball cap, torn t-shirt,
and grass stains on his trousers.
For shenanigans or monkey shines
It's Robbie the Roughhouser.
