Withch Baby takes the seeds and plants them by the school across the street that night. Coyote is very angree with her because the seeds only grow in the desert. Witch Baby then strats sneaking out at night trying to find them until Dirk finds her one night while he's on a run.

When Dirk and Duke tell everyone that they are going to visit Dukes family Witch Baby asks to come. Dukes family doesn't know he's gay so they say no. Witch Baby then hides in the trunk and goes anyway. While there Witch Baby tells Duke's mom he's gay and She's not happy about it to say the least. Duke gets angrey and he, Dirk and Witch Baby leave.
