Chris first appears at Rob's apartment in the city ready to take Rob to the cabin where he spent his childhood so Rob can pick up Toaster, Blanky, Lampy, Radio and Kirby to use at his dorm at college.
On their way to the cabin, Rob tells Chris that she's going to like the cottage and that it's a shame that his family has to sell it. When they get to the cabin, Chris and Rob go inside and find the place to be a complete mess (from the appliances' attempts to escape). Rob believes that someone came in and trashed the cottage, to which Chris replies, "You big dumbo! Didn't you lock the doors?" Even though Chris and Rob don't find the appliances, they manage to fix up the cottage for its future owners and leave to return to Rob's apartment. Later on back at Rob's apartment, his mother tells him that he can have some of her stuff to which Chris suggests that Rob should go for it, but Rob turns down his mother's offer.
Chris then suggests to Rob that they go out to cruise around and see what they can find. Rob sees an advertisement for a place called Ernie's Disposal, to which he has Chris take him there. When they get there, Chris finds some car parts that are hard to find, and Rob finds the picture of him as a little boy that Blanky had. Unknown to Chris, Rob finds Lampy, Radio, Blanky and Kirby and accidentally gets thrown on the car crushing machine. Rob, trapped beneath a heavy pipe, calls for Chris for help, and she hears him calling her but doesn't see him on top of the machine. Luckily, Toaster gets into the Crushing Machine and stops it from crushing Rob, and Chris tells Rob to get down from there because he's scaring her.
Back at the apartment, Rob fixes Toaster and Chris tells him to buy another one, but when he asks her where he can find another toaster like it she says, "Probably nowhere." After fixing Toaster Rob puts him and the rest of the appliances in Chris' car and they head off to college.
