Episode Summary

A strange mask-wearing woman comes to the farmhouse and says dogs are evil. With that, she hits Courage. Muriel thinks they are just playing and invites her to tea. While there, she says that long ago her best friend, Bunny, fell for a horrible dog. After trying to convince her to leave, the dog threatened her, and she had to leave. After that, she rapidly hurts Courage. At dinner, she says that she wears her mask to hide from reality. Muriel says she has to face reality, but she reveals that Muriel has been sneaking food, and Eustace can't fix every thing like he says he can. This causes a fight between Eustace and Muriel. Courage spies on the woman that night and sees her play with a toy mouse. She takes off her mask to reveal she's a cat. Convinced she's a wanted criminal, Courage locks the doors to the bedroom and attic doors, steals the mouse, and drives off to go to the police. He stops at a diner where the rat recognizes the cat's mouse and says her name's Kitty. He says Bunny is being held hostage by Mad Dog. Meanwhile, Eustace, Muriel, and Kitty notice their doors are locked and Eustace climbs out through the window. Courage arrives at Mad Dog's hideout and sees Bunny make a failed attempt to escape. Courage busts in to save her, and some guards attack him. Meanwhile, Muriel unlocks the door and finds Kitty has left. When we rejoin Courage, he has knocked out the guards and helped Bunny escape, but Mad Dog chases them. Meanwhile, Eustace and Muriel make up. Courage jumps in Mad Dog's car and steers it into a train. Bunny sees Kitty on the train and jumps on. They thank Courage and ride off. Courage returns in the morning, only to find Eustace wearing the Mask to escape the fact that he can't fix everything.moreless
