Run, Chester, Run!! Run like Toto from the Wicked Witch of the West.
When Toby learned Mary was going to ride her bike down New Country Road, do you think she called a residents meeting and they planted Chester in the middle of the street with a mild sedative just to get Mary to stop meddling in their lives? When Mary finds out Chester really was a gift, she's going to go berserk.
But for the moment, all of Santa Royale rejoices at this turn of events.
