Outside Earl's hotel room, Catalina's asking him if he's worried about Randy. He says he isn't, because Randy will be back as soon as he's hungry or forgets he's running away. Joy pulls up and yells at Catalina for picking the stupid turtle, making Darnell suspicious. She wants to know where the other turtle is, and Catalina says he's in the pool with all the other animals people dump, including a Shetland pony. Uh-oh, don't tell PETA. Catalina tells Earl she's conflicted: She'd love to rat Joy out, but she doesn't want to hurt Crab Man. Earl thinks Mr. Turtle will be okay, but Catalina goes on and on about how dangerous the world is for a turtle, all helpless like that. Earl agrees, but he's thinking of Randy. Catalina calls him "slow" and "vulnerable." Earl says he eats anything people give him. Catalina says if he rolls on his back, he can't get up, and Earl says he knows, because he has to roll him over all the time. Then he yells "Randy!"
Next thing we know, he's at Rachel and Daniel's telling them he screwed up and has lost their boys. Rachel can't believe Earl made him have a little boy and now made her lose him! Earl gets it; he lost his too. They all agree tough love is horrible, because you can't help being emotional about someone you love. And now Randy's out there in 67-degree weather. Rachel asks if Earl packed them light sweaters, and Earl says no. She screams, because we all know what happens if you don't pack light sweaters in 67-degree weather, right? That's right: You get sort of chilly. They hit the streets looking for the boys. They look at the morgue, but luckily don't find them there, although they do find a really outdated SARS joke (or maybe a shout-out to TWoP co-founder Sars?).
Joy pulls up at home and Darnell's having a funeral because Mr. Turtle died. He's heartbroken. Joy's ecstatic and hides the new Mr. Turtle doppleganger, then throws him on the roof of the trailer. But Darnell's so sad that Joy ends up admitting that wasn't Mr. Turtle. She tells him everything, and instead of being mad, Darnell's delighted to hear it. He says if any reptile can't make it home, it's Mr. Turtle.
