Before the intro
The episode begins with a flashback of what happened the previous week, showing Needle's cake becoming its star and beginning nuclear fusion, causing a massive windstorm on Earth. Teardrop, who is sitting on the lawn, is blown into a tree, and it breaks down. The tree lands above Pin, looking confused, who is standing on the side of a wall, indicating that the winds are very powerful. Leafy and Needle are standing against a large rock. After an argument between the two from her cake and then by calling her "Needy", Leafy slaps Needle hard, and she flies away, worrying her. Snowball says that she deserved it, as it was her cake that began the windstorm. Needle flies toward the yeast cake and pops it, which causes the storm to suddenly settle and Pin to fall to the ground. The intro then plays.
The Announcer says it's time for Cake at Stake for the Squishy Cherries. He mentions how there are eight members of the team now but only seven eventually. 14 votes are cast. The Announcer says that he was going to have an ice cream cake, but forgot the ice cream and has to use a chunk of ice again. Pencil overreacts and collapses, making Pin mention she was overreacting, but it turns out that Announcer is just kidding, and actually has an ice cream cake this time. He asks Pin if she wants to use one of her Win Tokens, but Pin denies this again, trying to explain, but being cut by the Announcer again, much to her anger. Bubble is safe with 0 votes again. As Announcer throws the ice cream cake, Needle falls and pops Bubble before she can get her cake. Match shows her disgust at Needle, but Pencil says she loves "needies." Needle slaps Pencil for this. Match protects herself by saying that she said Needle. Firey, Pen, and Pencil also get 0 votes. Unfortunately for Pencil, the piece of cake hits her back, and as for Firey, the Announcer forgets to give him his cake, and mistakenly throws it to a house with a fireplace, angering Firey and threaten to crush the Announcer. Announcer sees Needle and flings her back to her team after she again says "Aw, seriously?". The Announcer says that Match and Eraser got 1 vote a piece, but cuts himself off mid-sentence and corrects his sentence to omit the phrase "a piece". Match thanks him for this.
Pin and Woody remain. The Announcer says Woody's name, causing him to sigh in relief. However, it is revealed that he is eliminated with nine out of the fourteen votes, causing him to freak out. He apologizes, saying he didn't do anything to help the team. Announcer states that he will be sent to the TLC, which prompts Pen to ask him if it is an object since he has always referred to it as one. Announcer explains that the TLC stands for the Tiny Loser Chamber and thinks is an object. He flings Woody using the Sender Scoop Thrower, causing him to scream. After he's thrown, Flower and Blocky realize that the lid is closing, leading to Blocky complain about only having five minutes of sunlight every day, Flower then pushes Blocky over urging him to move over.

The next contest is to cross a bridge. The team with the most members to cross the bridge wins, and the first person to cross the bridge gets a Win Token. The teams then begin, and Leafy tells Needle with her real name (very reluctantly) that the bridge doesn't look strong enough, and she can't see the bottom of the gorge, which sure enough, is many feet below the mountains. Eraser urges and pushes Bubble to go across the bridge. While Coiny and Snowball are talking about the Announcer not trying his dirt cake the previous episode, Snowball notices Golf Ball. A flashback then happens about her saying Snowball's brain is small. After that, he tells Coiny he has some business to do. He tells Golf Ball that it is time to pay and throws Rocky at Golf Ball but misses and hits the middle of the bridge, causing it to fall. It collapses with Bubble on it. Pencil and Match follow Bubble as they are an alliance. Pen then notices a second bridge after Eraser asks how they're going to cross now.
Leafy asks Ice Cube whether she wants revenge or not, and luckily for her, she does not. Leafy says that Ice Cube and Needle can go together. Snowball catches Golf Ball, then hurls her into Leafy, Ice Cube, and Needle, causing them to fall off the bridge. Tennis Ball tells Snowball to calm down. This angers Snowball again, and he tries to throw him off the cliff, but the bridge's gap is too small. Snowball removes the poles from the bridge and throws Tennis Ball off the cliff. Eraser then asks if Pen sees the third bridge, but he doesn't see one around. With no bridge to cross, the teams have to use the ropes to cross. Eraser doesn't feel like doing it, but Pen tells him he wants to win to get Dream Island, stating that if he did, he would name it with a big sign that reads "Pen Island" except with no spaces and all caps. He then tells Eraser that they go ahead and try to win it. Coiny persuades Snowball not to throw him, but Snowball tells him not to worry as he is his friend. Coiny then questions if he'll throw Teardrop, to which Snowball says that he won't as long as she doesn't say he's bad, to which Coiny corrects him stating that Teardrop can't talk. While Pen is on the ropes, Eraser notices that the rope is a bunch of black bendy straws taped together. Because of Pen's weight and unknown surprise, the straws break apart, and he falls.
Announcer notices that no one has crossed the bridge, and there is no way to cross, so they have to do another literal tiebreaker. Snowball rips the tie again, which leaves the Squishy Cherries up for elimination for the fourth time in a row. The Announcer urges the voters to vote one of the seven remaining Squishy Cherries.
A face appears, mentioning that the last day to vote is on May 10th and that episode 6 would come out on June 1st, 2010.
In the end, Match asks where Golf Ball is since she was sure she fell too. Pen states that golf balls sink, and Tennis Ball says that rocks sink as well.
