While Superman and Lois enjoy a date, Krypto, who has lost his memories, encounters a dog named Chelsea. When Lois passes out, Superman takes her to a hospital and is spied by Krypto, whose memories flood back.

When they put a stop to the gang, Lois reaffirms her love for Superman, but Chelsea is not as comfortable with a super-powered suitor.
