After Experiment 113 (Shoe) was activated and started causing back luck upon traveling to the Pelekai residence, Lilo believed it was impossible to change Shoe's luck. However, Shoe overheard Lilo and left feeling hurt and abandoned. Sometime after, Gantu arrived and grabbed Shoe. Stitch then attempted to get Shoe back from Gantu. While the two fought over Shoe, they caused a chain reaction regarding the bad luck that Shoe generated. At one point, Stitch was flung into the air, where he smashed headfirst though the roof of the skunk farm and got sprayed by dozens of skunks inside.
