Koda and Kenai run off, as Olaf gives the chase. They enter the house, but Olaf is too big. Then it stretches its neck to attack, but it misses. Koda opens the door. Then Sacha appears. She uses her powers to blast the door but misses them. The door slams into the turkey, making it dizzy as Olaf then sees Koda and Kenai with the stuffing. Olaf screeches and sends itself fly. They hi-five each other, as Sacha flies towards them, as they scream and then run.
  • Olaf fights back at Koda to throw the book to him in his mouth. She makes a tree come to life, and it grabs Kenai. He tosses the book to Tarja as she catches the book, but the root gets her. She tosses the book to Barney as he catches the book but also gets grabbed by the root. He tosses the book to Yuna. As the roots try to get the book, Yuna grabs it.
