Chuck is walking on the beach when he sees a garden Gnome that has been washed up. He takes it and wraps it up to give to Matilda. Matilda opens it and finds out that it sings very loud annoying music. Chuck then starts singing it, and Matilda pretends to like it. Matilda takes it to her garden and sets it on a rock. She does work but gets distracted because the song got annoying. She then tries to meditate, but gets angry, and throws Gnome into the pond. Chuck then comes by and sees him float up, so Matilda jumps in with bubble bath powder and a brush and starts cleaning him. Chuck then smiles and walks away.
Matilda continues to work, but Gnome bothers her even more. So, she takes a bottle of soda, shakes it, and puts it in Gnome's hand and he shoots into the air. Matilda sighs in relief, but Chuck comes by! He wonders where Gnome is. Matilda pretends to look for him frantically. But he falls out of the sky and lands in the Slingshot, and launches itself into Matilda's head, giving her a large lump. Chuck turns around and walks away.
Matilda gets very angry and throws a large rock at Gnome. Chuck comes and sees this, and is confused. But Matilda picks up the rock scraps and stack them up like a shrine, and puts Gnome on top, then wraps him with lights. Chuck then becomes happy. But, Gnome catches on fire and melts. Chuck looks at Matilda, wondering if she even cares. So, she fake-cries. Then Chuck walks away. Matilda sighs with relief until Chuck comes dressed like Gnome and sings the exact same song as the gnome does.
Chuck offers a gnome to Matilda as a present. Unfortunately, it looks really scary to her and she tries to get rid of it without Chuck seeing.
