Royal Flush is an episode of the Happy Tree Friends internet series, the seventeenth of season three, and seventy-first overall.
Lammy finishes making sandwiches and answers the door to reveal Petunia and Giggles. Lammy allows them in. Lammy hears another knock at the door, and Flaky is seen in the doorway. She nervously chuckles, and everyone looks at each other.
Everyone is then seen playing poker. Mr. Pickels gets in a sandwich as Lammy comes by with a tray, ready to pick the sandwiches up. Lammy brings the sandwiches by and after everyone has ate the sandwiches and Flaky has had her drink of water, Flaky has a stomache ache and runs to the bathroom.
Lammy, Giggles, and Petunia wonder what's going on. As Flaky steps by the sink nervously, a bit of blood drips on the floor. It is revealed that a pickle (Mr. Pickels) that was in her sandwich is in the toilet that she just threw up, along with some blood.
Flaky gets scared about this sight, while Petunia cleans the crumbs on the table, holding a tray of lemonade. Lammy wonders what is taking Flaky long and knocks on the bathroom door.
Flaky is plunging the toilet, while Mr. Pickels comes out and pulls a mat that Flaky is on, causing her to trip. Lammy finally comes in and sees Flaky impaled by the plunger.
Giggles sees a pickle on the table while Lammy shuts the bathroom door scared. Lammy sees the pickle as Mr. Pickels and she runs to stop him and the way she holds cards that Mr. Pickels was holding causes them to fly out of her hand and impale Giggles in numerous places.
Petunia gets scared when she sees a small topping from the sandwiches on the floor and vaccums it. She thens vaccums Mr. Pickels, who climbs out the other side, and Petunia looks inside the tube and impales herself mistakenly with the tube.
Lammy comes in and sees Petunia and runs over to help her. Apparently, when she tries to pull it out, she pulls Petunia's eye out. Petunia's air starts to suck out, and Lammy sets it backward, causing Petunia's body to inflate and explode.
Meanwhile, Mr. Pickels uses a plunger to flush down Flaky's corpse successfully.
"Take the plunge!"
- Flaky is impaled in the mouth by a plunger.
- Giggles is sliced to pieces by the poker cards.
- Petunia's body inflates by a vacuum and she explodes.
- Since Truffles is briefly seen inside Petunia when she explodes and disappears after only a few frames, he could of died when Petunia exploded (unless it was a goof).
- When everyone is playing poker, Flaky's quills pass through the chair.
- When Petunia looks at here poker cards (before she giggled) she holds her cards with one hand but in the next scene she holds them with two hands
- When Petunia's eye was sucked in by the vacuum suction tube, her other eye lacked eyelashes.
- The Cursed Idol and Truffles' sailor hat can be seen in the background when the girls are playing poker, however in the next shot when Lammy is bringing them sandwiches, they both disappear.
- When the vacuum was sucking Petunia's eye, you can see a portion of her brain go along with it, yet when she explodes into pieces it can be seen falling to the ground, still intact.
- Lammy's bow switches sides numerous times, sometimes during continous shots.
- Strange enough, Truffles appears briefly inside Petunia when she explodes, but in only a few frames he disappears. Perhaps he died in the explosion too?
