Luna was surrounded by a bunch of cats. Luna tried running away, but hundreds of cats chased her. Then, Luna got cornered. A baby cat was biting her tail. When one cat went up to Luna, someone threw a fishbone right in front of it, in a similar fashion when Tuxedo Mask throws a rose to help Sailor Moon.
It was a very large, fat blue cat. All of the cats got scared and ran away. The baby cat that was eating Luna's tail also walked away. Then, the big blue cat came and licked Luna's tail. Luna was shocked. A little girl called out for Rhett Butler. The blue cat went to the little girl. Luna couldn't believe that the cat's name was Rhett Butler. Zoisite spotted the seventh Rainbow Crystal and thought it was the little girl with Rhett Butler.
Ami and Luna were waiting at a park. Ami had her pocket computer out and was doing something with it. Then, Usagi and Makoto came. Makoto asked about Rei. Ami answered that Rei said that since it was Sunday, she wanted to go out on a date. Usagi got upset.
Rei called Mamoru. But she just got Mamoru's answering machine. Rei put in a message and asked Mamoru to go eat some dessert with her. But Mamoru was home and thinking about the Silver Crystal by himself.
Makoto asked what Ami was doing with the computer. Ami said that she was looking for the seventh Rainbow Crystal. Usagi looked into her backpack and saw that the moon stick wasn't responding. When Usagi said that the moon stick wasn't responding, Luna said that that was the reason why they were looking for it with the computer. Then, Ami finished typing in all of the data. When she ran the program, the small screen gave displays of some maps. Luna said that that must be where the seventh Rainbow Crystal was.
Usagi, Ami, Makoto, and Luna went to the location given by the computer. When Luna looked into the second story window, she saw Rhett Butler. Then Usagi tried to scold Luna. Usagi pulled her eyes like a cat and said that this is a very important mission and that she should be more aware of the responsibility. Luna got upset and said that she isn't that ugly. Ami said that it's all right and that there are times when even she doesn't feel like it. Then, Usagi made a very cat-like face and said, "Ok. Have it your way."
After the girls went to the house, a lot of the stray cats gathered around Luna. Luna got very scared. The little girl answered the door. She said that her parents weren't home. But the moon stick was responding. Then, Rhett Butler ran away from the girl's grasp and ran outside. The girl went after her cat. The girl went into an alley after Rhett Butler, but Rhett Butler was gone. Then, Zoisite appeared.
Luna was surrounded by cats. Then one cat attacked. But Rhett Butler came and saved Luna. Rhett Butler had Luna in his mouth. But then Rhett Butler fell off of the fence and fell into a manhole with Luna.
Zoisite appeared and the girl got knocked out in a skinny alley. Zoisite used the Black Crystal, but the girl wasn't the youma. Zoisite then thought that it must be the cat. Sailor Moon, Sailor Mercury, and Sailor Jupiter tried to squeeze into the alley. But they couldn't fit. Sailor Moon ended up hitting Sailor Mercury and Sailor Jupiter when she went in her pose of "I’ll punish you!"
Then, Sailor Mercury tried to use her Bubble Spray, but she lost her balance and almost fell. Her foot was kicking Sailor Moon. Sailor Jupiter was blushing as her eyes were staring at under Sailor Mercury's skirt, which was in front of her face.
Then, Sailor Jupiter started to raise her antenna and use her Supreme Thunder. But Sailor Moon and Sailor Mercury said that they would all get electrocuted.
Then, Zoisite just vanished. Zoisite went after Rhett Butler into the sewer system. He hated the smell and said that he hated dirty animals.
The three girls carried the girl back to her home and put her in her bed. They were in the girl's room, and Makoto wondered where Luna had gone to. Usagi said that Luna must be playing around somewhere. But Ami said that Luna wouldn't do that. Ami thought Luna must be in trouble or something. Then Usagi spotted a Sailor V game cartridge in the girl's room. Makoto said that Zoisite might come at any moment, but Usagi started playing the game.
Zoisite felt that the Rainbow Crystal was near. He put his hand on the wall. But it was very soft. It was all mice! Zoisite ran off and the mice chased him. Rei was walking down the street. Rei was thinking about Mamoru. Then, Rei ran into Yuuichirou. Yuuichirou asked Rei to go out with him. But before Rei could answer, Yuuichirou said that a pretty girl like Rei probably didn't have any time to spend with him. Then Yuuichirou went away.
Luna and Rhett Butler were wandering down the sewer system. Then, Luna noticed that Rhett Butler's leg was injured. Zoisite came running down the sewer system, with the mice chasing him. When Zoisite spotted Rhett Butler, he said that he had found the seventh Rainbow Crystal. Then, Luna pushed Rhett Butler into a small tunnel. They tried to escape. Zoisite crawled after the cats. But the mice caught up, just as they all got to the exit.
Rei was walking around. She was thinking that she should have gone out with Yuuichirou. Then she spotted Luna and Rhett Butler. She thought that they were on a date. After a while, Ami looked at the moon stick in Usagi's backpack. Then, Ami wondering why the moon stick isn't responding. Makoto thought the girl was the youma and that the moon stick was responding before. Then, Ami and Makoto both realized that it was the cat. Usagi was still busy playing the Sailor V game. Then, she got killed in the game.
Zoisite came out of the tunnel and stood in front of Luna and Rhett Butler. Rei turned into Sailor Mars. She said that she wouldn't let Zoisite interfere between lovers, even if they were cats. Luna said that it wasn't that way. Then, Zoisite took out the Black Crystal and turned Rhett Butler into a youma.
Zoisite got the Rainbow Crystal. But Tuxedo Mask came and hit it away from him. Then Tuxedo Mask just grabbed the Rainbow Crystal and ran away with it. (So now Zoisite had four, Tuxedo Mask had two, and the Sailor Senshi had one.)
The youma didn't attack. He just walked away toward the city. Luna went to try to stop him. Then Luna slipped down, but the youma caught Luna in his paws. Luna told him to wait because Sailor Moon would return him to his normal form. Then, Sailor Mercury came and used Shabon Spray. The youma became immobilized and Sailor Jupiter jumped to grab Luna.
Then, Sailor Moon used Moon Healing Escalation to turn the youma back into Rhett Butler. Later after Rhett Butler went home, Rei asked Luna, "Don't you have to say good-bye to your boyfriend?" Luna tried to deny it.
