According to Sal, he was left by his wife who took their children and dog, along with his blumberflarg. To escape his sorrows he sought out alcohol at the only bar open on Blumbus. He then met Rick who was also looking to get drunk that night. They then watched "A Blumbus Carol" (a Blumbus-version of A Christmas Carol) together and Sal explained to Rick that a blumberflarg was, which reminded Rick of Morty. Rick quickly left to save Morty while Sal remained in the bar until it closed. After closing he went out to a bridge where his wife found him and asked him to come home. They embraced each other, crying, before Sal telling her that he loved her.
