Storyline

Rick and Holly are glad to see that Dopey has seemed to have made himself at home with the other brontosaurus in the swamp, and that they in general are safe since Grumpy doesn't seem to like the water. Later, Will and Holly enlist Dopey's help in carting berries back to the cave when they run into the Pakuni, Cha-Ka who follows them home. They decide to let Cha-Ka stay for their special dinner, which consists of a chicken which Rick found in their trap. They try to teach Cha-Ka human table manners, but Cha-Ka, in addition to being interested in the food, is interested in the perfume that Holly has just started wearing. The next day, after which Cha-Ka has spent the night with them in the cave, Holly goes out to collect water for breakfast. Her perfume ends up causing problems for her as she runs into Ta and Sa, who are as intrigued by the perfume as Cha-Ka was. What's worse is that it also attracts the attention of Grumpy.
