0:00:560:00:59

-Hey, DW!

-Hey!

0:00:590:01:03

Francine once tried to break the world hand-walking record.

0:01:080:01:16

-She did everything on her hands.

-Arthur, pass it!

0:01:160:01:22

And once, she decided the best time to practise was on the roof at dawn.

0:01:270:01:36

WOMAN: The building's collapsing! MAN: No, it's drums!

0:01:360:01:43

That only lasted one day.

0:01:450:01:49

Then she painted a life-size elephant...in her bedroom!

0:01:490:01:56

Francine!

0:01:560:01:59

Not bad. Accurate proportions.

0:01:590:02:03

But last week Francine did something that nobody could believe.

0:02:030:02:11

Hey! I'm on YOUR team!

0:02:290:02:33

-Yes! Cheer up, we're doing great.

-WE? YOU do everything!

0:02:420:02:49

-I'll give you the puck if you want to lose!

-You're so rude!

0:02:490:02:57

I guess the truth hurts.

0:02:570:03:01

-Muffy, shoot!

-No! Pass it to me!

0:03:040:03:09

CHEERING

0:03:140:03:18

We lost!

0:03:200:03:24

-Hope you're happy, Arthur.

-Why me?

0:03:240:03:27

You told Muffy to shoot. She's the worst player ever.

0:03:270:03:35

Lucky we've one more play-off game. ..Where's Muffy?

0:03:350:03:42

-Wait up!

-Maybe I'd play better if you LET me play! It's no fun!

0:03:440:03:54

-You're like a poke in the eye!

-If you don't know I'm nice, you're a dope!

0:03:540:04:03

I AM?! I'll bet you this Princess Peach watch that is always admired

0:04:030:04:11

-that you can't be nice for a week!

-I bet I can!

0:04:110:04:16

OK. You have to be pleasant for one week AND you can't tell anyone why.

0:04:160:04:24

They won't even notice a difference!

0:04:240:04:29

-Where did you get that weird sweater?

-My aunt.

0:04:320:04:38

My other sweater's dirty so I have to wear it.

0:04:380:04:44

-Oh-oh. Here's Francine. You'll never hear the end of it!

-That sweater...

0:04:440:04:53

-A-hem!

-Um...

0:04:530:04:58

-WATCH BEEPS What about it, Francine?

-It's nice.

0:04:580:05:04

-Two men in scoring position. Who's up?

-I am.

-Buster, I'll bat!

0:05:120:05:21

-Unless you'd rather bat! You look a bit tired.

-I'm fine. Are YOU OK?

0:05:210:05:29

Yes. Thank you for asking.

0:05:290:05:32

Hey! You have to see this.

0:05:350:05:39

What's she doing?

0:05:400:05:45

OK. Now you try it.

0:05:450:05:49

-Muffy! Can't you do anything... wrong? That was near perfect.

-Weird!

0:05:530:06:02

-Anybody noticed a difference?

-Yeah, she replaced the ball she threw away.

0:06:020:06:10

And she replaced a glass of juice she drank last summer!

0:06:100:06:16

-My good pants!

-Sorry. Am I still invited over for dinner?

0:06:160:06:24

Rrr... Yes!

0:06:240:06:28

She ripped my good pants!

0:06:300:06:34

-Isn't this brick durable?

-I'll be over at 5.30.

0:06:340:06:40

Three days, three hours and 32 minutes left. Wanna call it off?

0:06:400:06:48

No! Just take care of MY watch!

0:06:480:06:53

-A-hem!

-Father, let ME help with those.

0:07:020:07:07

-Who said that?

-Francine, you have a guest and you wear ripped pants?

0:07:070:07:15

Yeah? Well, YOUR clothes...

0:07:150:07:20

are great. Take me shopping one day.

0:07:200:07:24

Finally, you display some taste!

0:07:240:07:29

Francine's friendly, helpful, pleasant.

0:07:320:07:36

-Arthur, I'm scared!

-We all are! ..What are you doing?

0:07:360:07:43

Guys, this behaviour is no good for Francine.

0:07:430:07:49

If someone with Francine's temper holds it in, the pressure builds.

0:07:490:07:58

At some point, the pressure will be too much.

0:07:580:08:04

We've got to help her before she pops!

0:08:040:08:09

-How?

-We must make her really lose her temper.

0:08:090:08:16

Miss THIS and Francine will go nuts!

0:08:170:08:22

-We did it. She's going to scream.

-I guess the sun was in your eyes.

0:08:250:08:34

-Francine, we bought you a soda.

-Cherry?!

0:08:350:08:40

You know I don't like cherry! BUT perhaps I haven't given it a chance.

0:08:400:08:49

-Francine, Binky Barnes said he could beat you at any sport!

-He did?

0:08:570:09:06

-Aren't you mad?

-Aren't you going to beat him at a game?

0:09:060:09:12

Perhaps he's boasting because he's insecure...or he's been practising.

0:09:120:09:19

-We tried.

-With all that pressure building, she's gonna pop.

-Any time!

0:09:190:09:28

Muffy, what's wrong with Francine?

0:09:290:09:33

-We're worried she might pop.

-She'll be her normal, pushy self tomorrow.

0:09:330:09:43

-Right after the play-off game?

-I didn't consider the hockey game!

0:09:430:09:51

-Why didn't you steal the ball?

-Too rude.

0:09:550:10:01

Oops! Excuse me.

0:10:050:10:10

-Francine, distract the goalie! Insult him!

-I'd hurt his feelings.

0:10:120:10:20

Good shot, Sue Ellen. You guys play well!

0:10:200:10:25

-Keeper, you haven't scored a goal all season.

-No...

-Take a shot.

0:10:280:10:36

-Francine!

-Just trying to be nice.

0:10:360:10:40

-Francine, only 37 minutes left. You win.

-I can last 37 more minutes!

0:10:430:10:52

And everyone plays well if I'm nice.

0:10:520:10:56

Including the other team! Here's the watch. Now get mean!

0:10:560:11:03

Thank you but I feel I should last the final... OOH!

0:11:030:11:09

MUFFY!

0:11:210:11:24

-The old Francine's back!

-And she let someone score!

-So her head won't pop?

0:11:330:11:42

-Glad you're back to normal. You were getting quite boring.

-Me? Boring?

0:11:420:11:50

-If you think I'm boring...

-Francine!

0:11:500:11:54

Let's tell Binky to buy me a new watch.

0:11:540:11:59

Did you hear? Arthur gleeps stuff.

0:12:000:12:04

-Arthur gleeps beans.

-What?

0:12:040:12:10

-Arthur keeps bees.

-Arthur's sweet on Francine!

0:12:130:12:19

Arthur eats fancy Spam!

0:12:190:12:23

Did you hear? Arthur gleeps Spam. He's tough.

0:12:230:12:29

Arthur gleeps stuff! ..Oops.

0:12:290:12:34

-Mostly you don't know how stories get started, but

-I

-started this one!

0:12:340:12:42

Let's get a seat before there's no place left except... Oh-oh!

0:12:550:13:05

The Tough Customer table!

0:13:050:13:09

-Hi, Binky.

-Huh? Oh, hi. What are you doing here?

0:13:240:13:30

Binky, who's your friend? He looks like a goofus.

0:13:300:13:37

-I'm not a goofus.

-I bet he never skipped a lulu.

-A what?

0:13:370:13:43

-I bet he never pulled a fizzer.

-Or gleeped anything.

0:13:440:13:52

Arthur's gleeped more than you have!

0:13:520:13:56

-You have?

-Yeah...I guess so.

0:13:570:14:02

He's the world's greatest gleeper!

0:14:020:14:07

-Sorry, I didn't know.

-Buster, what does gleep mean?

0:14:070:14:14

I don't know, but it must be tough.

0:14:140:14:18

-"Gleep - slang term meaning purloin, filch, rifle..." Steal!

-STEAL?!

0:14:180:14:27

It's not like you really stole anything.

0:14:270:14:32

-But what if everybody THINKS I did.

-How would they find out? ..Oh-oh!

0:14:320:14:40

Hey, Arthur, we want to talk to you at our headquarters.

0:14:400:14:47

We can take our baseball cards over there.

0:14:470:14:52

-The rabbit stays!

-Hmm?

0:14:520:14:56

-What you said at lunch... About gleeping stuff...

-More than us!

0:14:560:15:03

We want to make you a Tough Customer.

0:15:030:15:08

Inaugurate you into our society, like.

0:15:080:15:13

-A Tough Customer? Me?

-Sure. You've gleeped lots of stuff!

0:15:130:15:21

Yeah. Is it true you gleeped Mr Haney's tie?

0:15:210:15:27

Er, to get on with the ceremony... Isn't anybody listening?

0:15:270:15:34

Let's split. Recess is over.

0:15:340:15:39

Everybody's treating me different.

0:15:390:15:43

-Arthur, you're imagining things.

-Oh, excuse me.

0:15:430:15:49

It's all the money I have, Arthur. Don't hurt me!

0:15:490:15:55

Gee, thanks...SIR.

0:15:590:16:02

Probably just a coincidence.

0:16:020:16:06

First choice, the toughest kid in the school - Arthur.

0:16:100:16:16

Huh? ARTHUR LAUGHS NERVOUSLY

0:16:160:16:21

-Funny. Why Arthur?

-Because Arthur's the biggest gleeper in school.

0:16:210:16:30

< Francine!

0:16:300:16:33

-He breaks through. They can't stop him!

-Arthur!

0:16:330:16:38

Binky said you were a gleeper!

0:16:380:16:43

-So what?

-You're not the gleeping type.

0:16:430:16:48

I'll have you know I've gleeped lots of stuff. ..Right, Molly?

0:16:480:16:56

Arthur... If I had... Gleeped?! I never want to speak to you again!

0:16:570:17:05

Goes to show who your REAL friends are, Art.

0:17:050:17:11

Arthur, you gleeped Mr Ratburn's socks.

0:17:110:17:16

I heard they were full of holes.

0:17:160:17:20

-Actually...

-Mr Ratburn wouldn't wear socks with holes.

0:17:200:17:27

He's an upstanding kinda guy. ..Hey!

0:17:270:17:32

How did you get them off while he was wearing them? That impresses me.

0:17:420:17:50

-I never...

-Tell anyone your gleeping secrets?

0:17:500:17:56

Glad you're having fun with your new friends, Arthur!

0:17:560:18:03

I didn't know you were interested in meditation.

0:18:030:18:10

I was just thinking. Mrs McGrady...

0:18:100:18:14

-Can I ask you a question?

-Shoot.

0:18:140:18:19

Say you went along with it when somebody said you did a bad thing.

0:18:190:18:27

Is it OK not exactly to say you did it, but not to say you didn't do it?

0:18:270:18:35

I have no idea what you're talking about.

0:18:350:18:41

Try explaining it more slowly.

0:18:410:18:45

Arrest him and make him give it back.

0:18:450:18:49

-Lock him up!

-Muffy, calm down.

-What in nirvana is going on?

0:18:490:18:58

-Arthur stole my cellular phone.

-I did not!

0:18:580:19:03

-Did too! You're the biggest gleeper in school.

-Biggest what?

0:19:030:19:09

- Gleeper - someone who steals. - Make him give it back, Mr Haney.

0:19:090:19:19

Take away his TV, shave his head... RING!

0:19:190:19:25

Oh, excuse me. ..Oh, hi, Mommy.

0:19:250:19:30

Yes, I told Mr Haney about my manicure appointment.

0:19:300:19:35

Could I see you in my office? ..Sit down. I was rather upset

0:19:350:19:44

-when Muffy called you a "beeper". Lollipop?

-No, thank you, sir.

0:19:440:19:51

If we believed all we heard, we'd still believe in sea serpents.

0:19:510:20:00

Then people would be afraid to go swimming, which would be a shame.

0:20:000:20:09

But bleeping is very serious indeed. If you do that, stop immediately!

0:20:090:20:18

-You'll get caught and be in deep trouble.

-Yes, sir.

0:20:180:20:24

-Did I say that right? Bleeping...?

-GLEEPING, sir.

-Of course.

0:20:240:20:31

BELL RINGS

0:20:310:20:34

-What did he do?

-Warned me.

-Did you tell him where to get off?

0:20:370:20:45

I bet you had him going in circles.

0:20:450:20:50

Guys, I have to tell you something.

0:20:500:20:54

I bet he sold out on us!

0:20:540:20:59

Otherwise why wasn't he punished?

0:20:590:21:03

Arthur, you didn't...DID you?

0:21:030:21:07

-Didn't what? I mean, NO!

-You squealer! I oughtta...

0:21:070:21:14

But I didn't! ..Ow, stop it!

0:21:140:21:17

OK, so prove you really are our chief gleeper.

0:21:170:21:23

-How?

-Gleep all the ice-cream bars from the cafeteria.

0:21:230:21:30

-I can't believe I'm doing this.

-Nor can I!

0:21:490:21:54

-Mrs McGrady! I didn't notice you!

-When meditating, be motionless.

0:21:540:22:03

-Be as silent as a block of wood.

-Just take me to Mr Haney.

0:22:030:22:11

-Why would I do that?

-I was stealing the ice-cream bars.

0:22:110:22:17

-And...?

-It's against the law.

-Why?

-There'd be no ice cream for anyone.

0:22:170:22:26

-So it's bad for everyone, really.

-So why do it?

-I guess I won't!

0:22:260:22:35

The Tough Customers will pulverise me!

0:22:350:22:40

Tell them what you just told me. They'll understand.

0:22:400:22:46

You big liar! You lied! You're just a lying liar! You big lying lie-face.

0:22:460:22:55

I hope you've learned your lesson. Never lie because lying is...bad.

0:22:550:23:03

-Arthur. I'm glad you told the truth.

-Anybody want to play kickball?

0:23:030:23:11

Yeah!

0:23:110:23:14

Come on, Arthur. I'm not mad at you any more.

Muffy bets Francine she can't be nice to everyone for a whole week and soon wishes she hadn't.

Arthur didn't mean to tell a lie, he just got stuck in a sort of fib, because he thought it was cool to be a gleeper. Too late, he finds out that gleeping means stealing. But when put to the test, Arthur has to admit that not only isn't he the world's greatest gleeper, he's not a gleeper at all.
