Squeaky dashes under the table to see what's Ike doing. He pulls the rope to move the box. Ike grabs his paw and bites it. He screams, "Ouch!" Squeaky checks on Ike and says, "You poor cat. You did it all wrong, you supposed to bite your paw." He tries to bite the cat's paw and make him fly away. Ike is screaming and fly into the ceiling like a rocket. After the scene, Ike is chasing Squeaky to the dining room. He climbs on the broom and the top of a counter. Ike sees Squeaky hiding in the jar. He opens the jar and found his mouse rival. Squeaky spots Ike and says, "Uh-oh! There's that cat again!" He gulps and walking very slow. Ike grabs Squeaky and says, "Aha! Now, I've got you!" Squeaky yells, "Help, help! The cat finally got me! Save me, audience!". At the kitchen, Ike puts Squeaky on the plate and adding salt and pepper. He finally put oil on the mouse's stomach. Ike is trying to eat Squeaky and then he takes a hot sauce.

Squeaky gives Ike some gasoline as water. Squeaky found firecrackers and throw it into Ike's stomach. The cat gulps and then his stomach is going to explode from the firecrackers. Ike is flying like a rocket and bumps into the wall. When Ike's owner appears, he, without knowing Squeaky is here, yells "IKE! What you're doing with that gasoline!? You will to go outside!", while Squaky is able to escape. The owner throws Ike out of the house and shuts the door.
