Shrignold tells Yellow Guy that even though there's a lot of hatred in the world, it doesn't have to be like that, and everyone can love each other and live in harmony. He then takes Yellow Guy to meet his friends, who know all about love.
They sing to Yellow Guy about who they love and how love must be saved for a person called a Special One. They tell Yellow Guy the story of Michael, the moral of which is that everyone has a Special One whom they will love. Eventually, Shrignold and the others introduce Yellow Guy to Malcolm, the king of The Love Cult. He must constantly be fed gravel to show that he is loved. The Love Cult ominously offers Yellow Guy a chance to join their Love Cult, claiming that he would no longer be alone if he did.
In the end, Yellow Guy wakes up, realizing that it was all a dream. Duck Guy and Red Guy apologize for upsetting him and offer him their last boiled egg (which contains The Caterpillar, whom Duck Guy swats).
