Finn then makes the two lovers promise to keep their love hidden and they agree.

Fed up with their constant affection, Finn decides their relationship has to stop right then and there. He splits them apart and suggests multiple options to them, but they keep coming up with excuses to his suggestions such as not wanting to hide their affection, being affectionate inside Tree Trunks' house or rushing into marriage. Finn and Jake rejects this terms and then decide to physically split them up, much to the delight of the other people in the drive-through that resulting them to cheer for their breakup.

Finn suggests that Tree Trunks should make a pie to get her mind off of Mr. Pig. Tree Trunks and Mr. Pig then begin to sing the song "Dream of Love," which is about their love for each other.
