'When you join a team or club, there are rules you have to obey.

0:01:090:01:14

'What would happen if no-one on the soccer team followed the rules?'

0:01:180:01:23

What's the SCORE?

0:01:310:01:34

To join a library, you have to agree to return your books on time,

0:01:340:01:39

or it's not a library!

0:01:390:01:41

'And to be in the swimming club, you have to know how to swim...'

0:01:410:01:47

Who wants to waste time learning how to swim? Bombs away!

0:01:470:01:51

Help! Help! Save me!

0:01:550:01:58

'..for obvious reasons.'

0:01:580:02:01

Binky, stand up!

0:02:010:02:04

Phew!

0:02:070:02:08

So...you see how important rules can be...

0:02:080:02:12

To pass this house, you have to pay a dollar and hop on one foot!

0:02:120:02:18

..sometimes!

0:02:180:02:20

Hi!

0:02:240:02:26

Mr Haney has an announcement about the Strawberry Festival parade.

0:02:270:02:32

Hurry and complete your costumes and floats!

0:02:320:02:36

I'LL be wearing a giant strawberry with REAL strawberries!

0:02:360:02:42

I'M King of the Island Float, with a 30-foot fake tree!

0:02:420:02:46

We have to start working on a float.

0:02:460:02:49

I know! I told everyone to meet in the tree-house.

0:02:490:02:53

Here are our possible floats.

0:02:530:02:56

Buster's Festival of Food idea.

0:02:560:02:59

We ride a giant revolving pizza dressed as the major food groups -

0:02:590:03:05

mushrooms, pepperoni and anchovies!

0:03:050:03:07

Anchovies? Yuk! Next!

0:03:070:03:11

That's mine. We all ride the twisted chains of a DNA double helix!

0:03:110:03:18

OK. My back-up idea. We all just wear baseball uniforms.

0:03:200:03:24

-That's a good one!

-I like that.

-Oh, no!

0:03:240:03:28

-Don't you like it?

-Not that. THAT!

0:03:280:03:32

It's Arthur's dwonky little sister again!

0:03:320:03:36

She follows him EVERYWHERE!

0:03:360:03:38

-What if this was a private club? Members only.

-We could try it.

0:03:380:03:44

But she probably won't fall for it.

0:03:470:03:50

Hi, guys! What're you doing?

0:03:520:03:55

This is a meeting of the Parade Float Club. Members only.

0:03:550:04:00

OK! How do I join?

0:04:000:04:03

Uh...

0:04:030:04:05

"Members must be able to kick a ball out of the yard."

0:04:070:04:11

OK, go ahead.

0:04:180:04:20

I'll break my foot if I kick THAT!

0:04:200:04:23

-Then you can't be in the club.

-YOU kick it. All members have to.

0:04:250:04:30

Kicking rule cancelled. You must draw a funny picture of Mr Ratburn.

0:04:350:04:41

ALL GIGGLING

0:04:410:04:44

All done!

0:04:440:04:46

Sorry. It has to be funny.

0:04:490:04:52

Sorry! I think it's funny!

0:04:550:04:58

-So I'm in the club?

-To join, you have to be in the third grade.

0:05:010:05:06

So why didn't YOU figure that out(?)

0:05:080:05:11

Yeah!

0:05:110:05:13

You know, we could use some REAL rules for this club!

0:05:130:05:18

Yeah. Like Buster can't eat all the snacks!

0:05:180:05:23

And collecting dues to fix up this place.

0:05:230:05:26

-Dues...? Like money?

-"Fix up"?

0:05:260:05:29

-What's wrong with it? I LIKE it like this!

-Eugh! Filth!

0:05:290:05:34

-We need new linoleum. 1 a week should do it.

-1 a week...EACH?

0:05:340:05:40

-I'm not made of money! I'm made of FUR!

-I don't see why not.

0:05:400:05:45

-I wouldn't give you two cents!

-Then don't be in the club!

0:05:450:05:51

-My allowance is 50 cents a week.

-I'll pay for you. But nobody else!

0:05:510:05:57

No! This tree house has always been free!

0:05:570:06:02

Fine! We'll have our OWN clubhouse, with computer games and everything!

0:06:020:06:08

Only for people who can AFFORD it!

0:06:090:06:12

Imagine paying a dollar a week for THIS crummy old place!

0:06:120:06:16

-If you think it's so crummy, you can go too!

-You want me to go? OK!

0:06:160:06:22

I'll have computer games!

0:06:220:06:25

WOW! That's the CLUBHOUSE?

0:06:270:06:30

-I declare the Muffy Club headquarters open!

-Muffy Club?

0:06:300:06:35

It's HER house, Buster. Like or leave it.

0:06:350:06:39

-Voila!

-WOW!

0:06:400:06:43

All RIGHT!

0:06:430:06:45

That's a dollar for us...

0:07:020:07:04

-and 2 for YOU, Buster!

-Why is it more for ME?

0:07:040:07:09

-Because you eat like a pig.

-That's not fair!

0:07:090:07:12

You don't HAVE to belong.

0:07:140:07:17

Then I WON'T!

0:07:170:07:19

Who needs him, anyway?

0:07:190:07:22

Macaroon, Francine?

0:07:220:07:25

-What do YOU want?

-Muffy's club is rotten.

0:07:290:07:34

Well, the Great Float Club has some NEW rules! Sue Ellen...

0:07:340:07:38

Rule Number One. Anyone can join except Buster Baxter, the traitor!

0:07:380:07:43

-Joining Muffy's stinky club...!

-Those are the rules.

0:07:430:07:47

They're on paper. We've got to follow them. Sorry!

0:07:470:07:51

Who wants to join their stupid old club anyway? I'll start my OWN club!

0:07:510:07:57

I now declare the Reading Comic Books Under The Blanket Club OPEN!

0:07:590:08:04

Francine! I'm open! Francine...!

0:08:040:08:08

Huh! ..Huh?

0:08:080:08:09

Why didn't you kick it to me?

0:08:130:08:15

-We can't pass to anyone in YOUR club.

-But we'd have won the game!

0:08:150:08:21

Sorry. Club rules.

0:08:210:08:23

-Where are you going?

-I'm sorry. We can only eat with club members.

0:08:270:08:32

- Members of MY club sit ANYWHERE. - What's YOUR club?

0:08:330:08:38

-Come on. I'll tell you.

-Don't go with him!

0:08:380:08:42

If I can't be in your club and also talk to Buster, then I quit!

0:08:420:08:47

This is no fun. Do we have to read comics every day?

0:08:500:08:54

Yes! It's part of the club!

0:08:540:08:57

I'm going to form a club for having fun! Yeah!

0:08:570:09:02

Binky! Where are you going?

0:09:030:09:06

I want to have fun too!

0:09:060:09:08

-Salt and pepper, peas and carrots.

-Go away!

0:09:080:09:12

-Why?

-You didn't show up yesterday!

0:09:120:09:15

The rules are, members must show up every day!

0:09:150:09:19

-I was sick!

-Rules are rules! You're out!

0:09:190:09:23

Get off my property or I'm calling the police!

0:09:230:09:27

There's no air under here! All that old food stinks!

0:09:280:09:33

Why can't we meet outside?

0:09:330:09:35

It's the Reading Comics Under the Blanket Club! Then I quit!

0:09:350:09:41

Fine! Who needs you?

0:09:430:09:46

Ah! Paremecium!

0:09:460:09:49

You're not having fun, are you?

0:09:510:09:54

No. You have to have fun to be in this club! It's the FUN club!

0:09:540:10:00

SCHOOL BELL

0:10:000:10:03

Francine!

0:10:050:10:07

-Want to go to the Sugar Bowl?

-Sorry. I have an Exciting Club meeting.

0:10:070:10:12

Oh. Well...so do I.

0:10:120:10:16

-Sue Ellen...

-Shh! This is a meeting of the Reading And Walking Club.

0:10:170:10:23

Anybody here?

0:10:280:10:30

Huh?

0:10:300:10:32

This meeting of the Exciting Club is now in session!

0:10:350:10:39

Phew! Sue Ellen's right - there IS no air under there!

0:10:430:10:48

Oh. I thought you were Francine.

0:10:580:11:01

What are YOU doing up here?

0:11:010:11:03

-I thought you'd all be up here. Where IS everyone?

-I don't know.

0:11:030:11:08

HE SIGHS

0:11:080:11:12

-Hey, Arthur! Can I come up?

-Sure!

0:11:140:11:18

Can I come in?

0:11:200:11:23

BUSTER GIGGLES

0:11:230:11:26

Hey, Francine! Come on up!

0:11:270:11:30

So what's the name of THIS club?

0:11:320:11:35

I was here first, so it's MY club.

0:11:350:11:38

And MY club only has one rule. We have MY float in the parade.

0:11:380:11:44

Whoa...!

0:11:530:11:56

Get back! Back! Oh...! Go away!

0:11:590:12:03

Here they come!

0:12:050:12:07

-I never knew DW was so smart!

-Me neither!

0:12:070:12:11

She had a better idea than ARTHUR!

0:12:110:12:14

Why didn't Arthur let her join the club in the first place?

0:12:140:12:19

ARTHUR MUTTERS

0:12:190:12:21

I can't wait! You know...

0:12:320:12:34

There's one thing that's important to know about Francine.

0:12:340:12:39

Coming through!

0:12:390:12:42

Do NOT get between her and her bike!

0:12:440:12:47

Francine was on two wheels when WE were all riding tricycles!

0:12:480:12:53

-I decided I'd get more power if I lowered the chassis.

-Yeah?

0:12:530:12:58

Well, check out this BELL!

0:12:580:13:01

Bell, schmell!

0:13:020:13:04

THESE wheels can do zero to one in 60 seconds!

0:13:040:13:09

There's only one problem with Francine's bike.

0:13:130:13:17

-She's outgrown it.

-Ouch! Ouch! Ouch!

0:13:220:13:26

AGGH!

0:13:300:13:32

Honey, we can't afford a new bike! Maybe next year.

0:13:330:13:37

That's not fair! I'll DIE without a bike!

0:13:370:13:41

No...not that!

0:13:410:13:44

Anything but that! You mustn't give up, honey!

0:13:440:13:48

Be brave! Live, I say! LIVE!

0:13:480:13:53

Oh, Dad! Grow up!

0:13:530:13:56

Catherine's right. And besides, I have an idea.

0:13:560:14:00

Francine, hold that light still.

0:14:030:14:06

-Hey! Watch it!

-Sorry, Dad.

-# Ta-ra! #

0:14:070:14:11

-What is it?

-Your new bike. Well, actually, it's an OLD new bike.

0:14:110:14:16

But it's in great shape. It got ME to school every day.

0:14:160:14:22

I know you'll appreciate it the way I did.

0:14:220:14:26

-SIGHING:

-Thanks, Dad. At least it's...big enough.

0:14:260:14:30

Oh, there's a few things I'd like to check out. You know, the brakes...

0:14:320:14:38

Woo-hoo!

0:14:400:14:43

What is THAT?

0:14:500:14:53

-It's my new bike.

-"New"? In what century?

0:14:530:14:58

Too bad it's not like MINE.

0:14:580:15:01

I could have had any bike I wanted, but I chose this one.

0:15:040:15:08

But, Francine... WHY?

0:15:080:15:12

The wheel was invented circa 3000BC.

0:15:160:15:19

What do you think the Samarians did with it?

0:15:210:15:25

Mr Baxter.

0:15:250:15:27

Built Francine's bicycle? LAUGHTER

0:15:270:15:31

Stop picking on Francine!

0:15:330:15:35

It's not her fault her bicycle's so ugly

0:15:350:15:39

and she wears hand-me-downs! Think how YOU would feel!

0:15:390:15:44

Don't worry, I'll come back for you.

0:15:510:15:53

CHILDREN CALLING Come on, Francine! Come on!

0:15:580:16:02

-Where WERE you?

-Why do you have leaves in your hair?

0:16:020:16:06

-And where's your bike?

-Oh, um...somewhere.

0:16:090:16:13

-I feel like walking.

-OK. See you at the Sugar Bowl!

0:16:130:16:17

-How's the new bike?

-Fine.

-Doesn't it ride great?

0:16:240:16:29

Feel how it handles corners?

0:16:290:16:31

-Yup.

-Francine, are you all right?

0:16:330:16:36

-Dad, why couldn't you just get me a NEW bike?

-We can't afford it yet.

0:16:360:16:42

Meanwhile, the one I gave you works just fine.

0:16:420:16:46

Oh, no!

0:16:510:16:53

My bike!

0:16:560:16:58

Oh, well. I guess that's where it belongs.

0:17:000:17:04

Hey, Francine! Wanna do some wheelies before school starts?

0:17:040:17:08

I can't. My bike was um...um...

0:17:100:17:13

Stolen? Are you sure?

0:17:150:17:18

Um...yes. No. PRETTY sure. Can I draw or what?

0:17:180:17:24

-We heard about your bike...

-Why would anyone steal that junk?

0:17:240:17:30

-Dunno. It was pretty old.

-Maybe it was so old, it was an antique!

0:17:300:17:37

-Help! Police!

-Let's try not to panic!

0:17:370:17:41

-We have to tell Mr Haney.

-No, wait!

0:17:410:17:45

Let me get this straight.

0:17:450:17:48

You were hurrying home on your bike to do your chores...

0:17:480:17:52

..when all of a sudden...

0:17:550:17:58

I had no idea these kinds of trucks were roaming the streets!

0:18:170:18:22

Um...can I go home now, Mr Haney? I don't feel well.

0:18:220:18:26

-Did you think there was something fishy about Francine's story?

-Yeah!

0:18:290:18:34

Does she expect us to believe she was hurrying home to do her CHORES?

0:18:340:18:39

I think Arthur meant the bike-eating truck was fishy, Buster!

0:18:390:18:44

-She's hiding who really took her bike.

-Why?

0:18:440:18:48

Of course!

0:18:480:18:51

Because whoever it is is somebody we all know!

0:18:510:18:56

And now the question is... >

0:18:580:19:01

which of us has a bike-eating truck?

0:19:010:19:04

Robbers in helicopters? And you BELIEVE her?

0:19:040:19:08

Catherine, Francine's had a tough day and you're not helping.

0:19:080:19:13

Can we just forget about it?

0:19:130:19:15

I know how you feel. But, who knows? Maybe it'll find its way home.

0:19:170:19:22

Dad, it's a bike, not a dog.

0:19:220:19:25

Someone in this room knows more than she's saying.

0:19:250:19:30

Go away!

0:19:360:19:38

So after you chased these robbers, then what?

0:19:390:19:42

I was lost and I wandered around with amnesia

0:19:420:19:46

-until I hit my head and my memory came back.

-We saw that in a movie!

0:19:460:19:51

You'll have to do better than THAT to get a new bike!

0:19:510:19:56

-Daddy...

-Yes?

0:19:560:19:58

I thought I should tell you... Um...

0:19:580:20:00

-..good night.

-Good night, sweetie!

0:20:020:20:05

-Something else you wanted to talk about?

-No... Thanks, Dad. Good night.

0:20:050:20:10

-We think we know what happened to your bike!

-HUH?

0:20:110:20:16

These guys that swiped your bike - did one of them look like...THIS?

0:20:160:20:21

-No!

-It HAS to be Binky. Who else is big enough to steal a whole bike?

0:20:210:20:26

Can't you forget about it? It's not your business, anyway!

0:20:260:20:31

-We're only trying to help!

-Well, DON'T!

0:20:310:20:35

I say Binky's behind it and it's up to us to make him confess!

0:20:380:20:43

-How?

-We threaten him!

0:20:430:20:46

Any volunteers?

0:20:460:20:48

You are the biggest bunch of babies!

0:20:510:20:53

-Muffy...

-Don't interrupt.

0:20:530:20:56

One of my best friends has been traumatised!

0:20:560:21:00

-If

-I

-must right this terrible wrong, so be it!

0:21:000:21:05

It won't be the first time, nor...

0:21:050:21:07

..the last.

0:21:070:21:10

What do you want?

0:21:100:21:12

-Are you telling everyone I stole Francine's bike?

-What if I am?

0:21:120:21:17

Yeah? Well... I didn't do it.

0:21:170:21:21

Then who DID?

0:21:220:21:24

I did.

0:21:240:21:27

I DID!

0:21:270:21:29

-Francine...!

-I know, I know. I didn't really STEAL it...

0:21:290:21:34

I just sort of threw it away. So leave Binky alone.

CHEERING

0:21:380:21:40

Great(!) Now everyone hates me, thanks to YOU!

0:21:400:21:45

-You FOUND it!

-Yeah, it was right here.

0:21:530:21:58

-I guess the thieves got scared and dumped it.

-Dad...it wasn't thieves.

0:21:580:22:04

-It was me.

-I know. Why did you do it, Francine?

0:22:040:22:09

Cos everyone was making fun of me! I thought if it was stolen...

0:22:090:22:14

-maybe you'd buy me a new one.

-I understand how you felt.

0:22:140:22:19

-But it's no excuse for lying.

-I know.

0:22:190:22:22

I didn't want to hurt your feelings.

0:22:220:22:25

I know how much the bike meant to you. I'm really sorry.

0:22:250:22:30

Did you REALLY ride that to school?

0:22:320:22:36

-Uphill both ways.

-Wow!

0:22:360:22:39

Hey! Maybe we could fix it up!

0:22:410:22:44

-How about it, Dad? All it really needs is some paint.

-I say...

0:22:450:22:51

0:22:520:22:55

This better be good!

0:22:580:23:01

0:23:140:23:18

-Francine...

-You first, Dad.

0:23:180:23:21

You sure? I wouldn't want to deprive you...

0:23:210:23:25

-I'm sure!

-Be careful, honey... >

0:23:250:23:28

Dad, you're not...! Don't let anyone see you!

0:23:280:23:32

Just a little spin around the block!

0:23:320:23:36

To make sure it's absolutely safe!

0:23:360:23:38

Woo-hoo!

0:23:430:23:47

# And I say, hey!

0:23:470:23:49

# What a wonderful kind of day We can learn to work and play

0:23:570:24:00

0:24:050:24:10

0:24:100:24:16

# We can learn to work and play And get along with each other

0:24:160:24:22

# What a wonderful kind of day HEY! #
