Robbie Sells Rex is the 8th episode of Season 4 of Victorious and the 55th overall.
Francis Thornesmith, a spoiled child of Mason Thornesmith, sets his sights on Rex. He offers Robbie Shapiro $2,000 for Rex. Robbie accepts and gets a new puppet, Goonter, but he is disappointed when it only says nice things to him. Robbie goes crazy without Rex, hearing Rex's voice whenever someone else talks. He is extremely desperate, so he asks Tori for help. She then sneaks into Mason's office and tells a girl named Rhoda Hellberg, who's been annoying Erwin Sikowitz, to kiss Francis so he will forget about Rex. The plan succeeds and Robbie gets Rex back.
Elsewhere, a masked individual is throwing flour at school and the students try to catch the individual to see who it is and why he is throwing flour in peoples faces. It turns out that the masked flour thrower was a boy named Tom Vineman, who just had nothing better to do during the semester break of his school East Hills High and had extra flour leftover because his mom bakes. Everyone acknowledges how poorly-written an ending this is, but walk off for lunch anyway.
Mrs. Hellberg's daughter Rhoda has been bothering and bullying him. She threw eggs at him while he was in the shower, then, after she apologized, she kicked him in his pain area & then hit him in his stomach. Sikowitz told her mother that he was going to call the police and get the girl sent to juvie. The mother begs him not to, but he does not listen. Tori then settles an arrangement with the little girl. Tori tells her that if she can distract Francis so Robbie could get Rex back, she would not have to go to juvie. The girl agrees and kisses Francis on the cheek, who forgets all about Rex.
Cat decides, while talking about Robbie selling Rex, that she would make hamburgers but shaped like weiners and put them in hot dog buns and call them Hot-Durgers. She gets flour-bombed by the Flour Bomber while doing this, and says "it's not as fun as it seems."

- In The Breakfast Bunch, it is mentioned Robbie is a vegan. But he says in this episode that he is a "seafood lover". However he may have decided to quit being a vegan since then. However, The Breakfast Bunch was a non-canon episode so it might have not been true that Robbie was a vegan.

- However, it was probably a little bit over a year when they shot this episode.
- After Cat tackles the Flour Bomber, her hair was messy and one side of her hair was covering her eye, but when she stood to Jade her hair was back to normal with no time to fix it.
- Everyone acted as if the Flour Bomber had to flour bomb them in order to chase the Flour Bomber while chasing the Flour Bomber after getting covered in flour would be more difficult because the flour could cover their eyes.
