When Alf sees Mr Oddly on a chair in the middle of the night he snaps, grabbing the doll and forcing it into a sack. He leaves the house with it and buries Mr Oddly in the caravan park, being spotted by Miles doing so. Miles wonders what Alf was doing out in the middle of the night with a shovel. Alf explains it away by saying he was burying a dead bird. But sure enough, by some force of magic, Mr Oddly finds his way back into the house, muddied and on their front doorstep. Alf demands answers from both Marilyn and Miles as to how Mr Oddly got back into the house…but neither have answers – they just assume a dog took it and put it back on their doorstep. Alf knows that he buried Mr Oddly so the whole thing seems impossible to him. Alf soon finds Mr Oddly’s footprints leading up to the house as though he walked there by himself…
