Back inside the mansion, Blik goes on and on about how he will star in his parade and how people will love him in the mirror with his big crown on, when suddenly he realizes he has a blemish growing on his neck. Blik then runs into the bathroom and grabs all the ointment and creams in the cabinet. He then thrown on globs of ointment on to his blemish and wraps his neck all in bandages. The blemish then grows even more as Blik freaks out and tries to push it back in him (making it relocate to his head) and pushes it back down to his neck. Blik then finds a scarf in the bathroom and warps it around tight on him, making the blemish go away. Blik then feel relief that it went all away when suddenly, the blemish broke out of the bandages and revels a second Head who then says hello to Blik. Hovis then calls Mr. Blik to lunch.
