Oh, it looks like someone's having a BAD dream! Then Yellow Guy drowns in oil.
The sixth episode starts with a slightly changed the tune to the 5th episode, and Yellow Guy, crying in his bed, looking through a scrapbook, acknowledging infact his friends are missing. When he turns off the light, a few seconds later a new teacher, the Lamp, turns back on. It begins singing about dreams, and Yellow Guy's upset because he didn't want to learn about them. However, the lamp teleports in front of him, and forces him into a song. It turns when the Lamp decides to change his lesson on dreams, to a nightmare teacher. He then drowns Yellow in oil, once in the dream world, once in his bed. In the meantime, Red Guy is in the "normal world", where everyone looks and sounds just like him. He goes to a bar, where people around him are talking and another Red Guy plays a piano. The "real" Red Guy takes off his business outfit and tries to sing a song from the first episode (possibly to make the other Reds remember), but he gets booed. He sees Roy in the audience, listening to him. Suddenly, the microphone starts singing and Red Guy is in a different, dark place all alone. He sees a machine that displays the "cameras" in Yellow Guy's house. We see that someone has been watching Yellow Guy and his friends. Red Guy figures out what the machine does - it controls the two teachers. He presses different buttons and all teachers (except Notepad) from past episodes appear, Duck Guy also makes an appearance. Roy shows up from the darkness and reaches his hand towards Red Guy. Red Guy notices the machine has a cord. He goes looking for the power source and finds it. Just when he is about to get the machine's plug out, he says "I wonder what will happen". When he unplugs the machine, The set of the first episode appears - Red Guy, Yellow Guy and Duck Guy are sitting around the table, but their colors are changed to each individual character's favorite color. Red Guy is now being blue, Yellow Guy is now being green, and Duck Guy be's red. The calendar changes to June 20th, and the Notebook starts to sing and the episode ends before it can finish the sentence "What's your favorite idea?".
This episode has very eerie credits, it takes place in the control panel room with a bunch of smoke, the clarinet noises make it similar to the first DHMIS. Roy is also hidden in the darkness if you look closely.
(Zooms out to show Yellow Guy alone in his bedroom crying as he looks at a scrapbook showing him, his friends and a hidden picture of Roy.)

*The credits roll*
- Yellow Guy
- Red Guy
- Duck Guy
- The Lamp
- Tony the Talking Clock
- Colin the Computer
- Steak Guy
- Spinach can
- Several new teachers
- Green Guy
- Blue Guy
- Red Duck Guy
- This episode is the only one with the animated segment (in the drawn cartoon style).
- Roy is seen nine times in the episode, first in the photo book that Yellow Guy is looking through at 0:10, second when he's sitting in the movie theater in Yellow Guy's brain at 0:55, third inside the red telephone booth seen in the end of the 5th episode at 1:01, fifth in the window watching Yellow Guy sink in oil at 1:01, while at the same time appearing at the cuckoo clock on the wall. Sixth on Red Guy's performance at 4:21, seventh he is on the machine at 5:31, eighth extending his arm to touch Red Guy's shoulder at at 6:57, and last, standing at the right of the credits if you look very closely at 7:49.
- When Yellow Guy drowns in oil, it looks like the same as the liquid used to ruin his clown picture from the first entry.
- Notebook is only shown at the end of the episode, and not appearing with the other teachers as they sing about themselves.
- Notebook, Duck Guy, Tony, and Red Guy can be seen inside Yellow Guy's head, as frames.
- When in Yellow Guy's head, the Notebook can be seen on a picture on the wall, but the Notebook's seen with legs. The Notebook was never seen with legs from the past.
- The scene in which Red Guy's walking while shocked on a checkerboard floor might be a reference to Eraserhead, in which one scene involves Henry's walking in a similar stance to Red Guy on a checkerboard floor. (But Eraserhead is a surrealist horror film, so this could be a possibility because Don't Hug Me I'm Scared is even also horror.)
- Clarinet noises from the first Don't Hug Me I'm Scared's Credits we're reused for this one's credits however, this one's more aggressive or eerie sound to make it fit the dark room.
- This was the 5th and final episode with a character or a part of a character in the credits. The first was Don't Hug Me I'm Scared 2 with maggots and Yellow Guy's decaying hair, the 2nd is Don't Hug Me I'm Scared 3 with malcom's burning head and a human, the 3rd is Don't Hug Me I'm Scared 4 were Colin the Computer's screen is appeared, and the 4th is Don't Hug Me I'm Scared 5 with Red Guy in a suit and suitcase walking out of the phone booth.
- The file character that Red Guy has made up was shown with all the other unused teachers, singing the same song that Red Guy was also singing.
- In the 'Dream World', many references the past episodes can be seen, such as the entrance to Colin's digital world, the checkerboard's path and the clapperboard from Don't Hug Me I'm Scared 3, the telephone box at the end of Don't Hug Me I'm Scared 5, the chicken picnic, Malcom's head and the rainbow cloud from Don't Hug Me I'm Scared 3 and the 'future' machine from Don't Hug Me I'm Scared 2.
