Uncle Grandpa tells Mr. Gus that it's serious and begins to look for him by breaking Mr. Gus' things, Uncle Grandpa begins to cry and explain that he's looked everywhere in the entire RV and he was nowhere to be found, and then he went into his room and found some ominous signs. Uncle Grandpa shows Mr. Gus the ominous signs and Mr. Gus believes that he's around here somewhere, they enter his room and Uncle Grandpa sees another clue which is an empty bottle of mouthwash, he then notices some white powder that Mr. Gus believes to be dandruff, Uncle Grandpa thinks as what can be the powered and concludes that it's fairy dandruff. Uncle Grandpa then points to a hole in the wall and figures that the kidnapper escaped through here with Pizza Steve, Mr. Gus investigates the hole and finds a glittery feather, Mr. Gus notices that there is only one person capable of doing this and Uncle Grandpa believes it to be Tiny Miracle where he proceeds to beat him up, Mr. Gus tells him the Tooth Fairy.

It becomes night time and Tiger is sleeping in her bed, she leaves to use the litter box and the Tooth Fairy opens her window and jumps inside, she breaks her back jumping in and she spots the teeth under the pillows, she removes the pillows and is amazed at the size of them and says that they have got to be the biggest teeth she have ever laid eyes on and takes them. She then leaves a pile of dandruff and leaves Tiger's room, she's happy to find such big teeth and she takes them back to her lair and tells them to say hello to their new home and to rest easy. Mr. Gus sees that now is their chance and they better move their behinds fast before she comes back, Uncle Grandpa proceeds to move his behind and Mr. Gus gets mad and tells him that he meant to move fast before the Tooth Fairy comes back.

While searching, Uncle Grandpa shouts for Pizza Steve and Mr. Gus comes across Pizza Steve's sunglasses and tells Uncle Grandpa to check it out, Uncle Grandpa tells him to check him out with his new teeth, Mr. Gus yells at Uncle Grandpa to stay focused. Uncle Grandpa runs and looks for Pizza Steve, picks up a tooth and angers a long monster, they continue to look for Pizza Steve and they set off a tripwire and they get trapped in a cage.

The Tooth Fairy decides to join in and she tells them that they can thank their greasy friend as he's been fooling into giving him money for years by putting fake teeth under his pillow, Mr. Gus is glad to finally meet the Tooth Fairy and Uncle Grandpa says the same thing.
