In Over the Hedge

While Rj and Verne fight over the wagon, RJ sees a chain and tries to get Verne to follow him quietly. But the turtle won't listen to him and steps on a squeaky toy. Nugent hears it and says "Play?" He sees Verne stepping on his doggy toys and starts chasing him. RJ carries a doll with a pull string like Woody from Toy Story to distract the dog, But the pull string gets stuck on a stick and the doll says "Let's Play!" Nugent hears it and chases RJ while his chain gets stuck on the wagon tugging it with Verne on it. While Nugent plays chase with the raccon, he and the wagon crashes into walls until they made the BBQ man fall on his back and dragging the BBQ gas tank. Then RJ says "Look people! Play with them!" then Nugent charges through the people's table. The gas tank's ending starts up like a rocket and gaves the wagon a boost of speed. RJ tells Verne to unhook the chain and the chain comes off Nugent's collar making landing on the grass and sadly says "Play!"

At the end, The Sniffer escapes from the cops while Gladys fights with them by climbing over a fence. But he lands on Nugent's toys and he says "Play?" He runs up to The Sniffer and bites him.
