This baffles Captain Feathersword and The Wiggles say it's their usual hobbies. He calls Dorothy over to try and help. Dorothy comes over and understands what Captain Feathersword means. She suggests The Wiggles are sick and Dr. Lucy should come over and see why The Wiggles are doing each other's hobbies. The doctor soon comes and tells the pirate and dinosaur to just hang out with The Wiggles until the end of the day and The Wiggles should be back to their normal selves. Believe it or not it works! Well, kind of. Dorothy ends up tickling Captain Feathersword as he eats a rose.
