Meanwhile, the plants around him are blooming with lots of flowers! Frustrated and discouraged, Stinky is about to give up.

Then, Leela reassures Stinky that even if he doesn't grow a flower, he is still unique and special to all his friends. As Stinky tells himself he's special, he starts to feel better. Could this help Stinky bloom? Tune in to find out!
