0:00:530:00:59

-Hey, DW!

-Hey...

0:00:590:01:03

Oh...

0:01:030:01:05

I'm bored.

0:01:130:01:16

# Rain, rain, go away Come again some other day. #

0:01:160:01:22

I bet everyone else is having fun.

0:01:220:01:26

# Rain, rain, go away Come again on a school day. #

0:01:260:01:33

< SNORING # It's raining, it's pouring The old man is snoring. #

0:01:330:01:40

And it's driving me nuts!

0:01:450:01:48

# Rain, rain, go away... #

0:01:490:01:52

..Evaporate and recondense.

0:01:520:01:55

Return in a low-pressure weather front on a more appropriate occasion!

0:01:550:02:03

I'm bored!

0:02:050:02:07

-Your homework...

-Mr Ratburn!

0:02:200:02:24

-Francine?

-Today is Friday.

-You're right.

0:02:240:02:29

-Good. You'll have all weekend to do your homework.

-Aw!

0:02:290:02:35

Your assignment for the weekend - make sure you have loads of fun.

0:02:350:02:42

Prepare a short report about what you do tomorrow.

0:02:480:02:53

Does that include eating?

0:02:530:02:56

He said a "short" report!

0:02:560:02:59

-What should I do tomorrow?

-You could come to the park with us.

0:03:010:03:09

Great idea! But if we play together, our reports will be the same.

0:03:110:03:18

-Forget it!

-Will our reports be the same?

0:03:180:03:23

No. We don't have to play together ALL day.

0:03:230:03:27

# Sweet and fishy, good for kids Golden delicious honey squids. #

0:03:370:03:44

BOTH: YUCK! So what are we doing tomorrow?

0:03:440:03:49

-WE? I'M going to the park.

-YOU said you'd play with me.

0:03:490:03:56

-I have to do something interesting. I'll play with you Sunday.

-Grrr!

0:03:560:04:03

-When are you going to the park?

-I can't, it's raining.

0:04:060:04:12

I guess you can play with me after all.

0:04:120:04:17

I need ideas. I can't write a report about playing baby games with DW.

0:04:190:04:26

At least you'll be doing something. I can't think of anything.

0:04:260:04:32

Maybe I'll practise the drums.

0:04:350:04:37

Which one first - Weasel Rally or Confuse The Goose?

0:04:370:04:43

"A fun game combining all the thrills of weasels and racing."

0:04:430:04:51

-You're doing it wrong! >

-I am not! I am not!

0:04:550:05:00

-What's going on, you two?

-Arthur's not playing the game right.

0:05:020:05:08

-I am so! I move around the board.

-You're meant to be having fun.

0:05:080:05:15

-Look at the boy on the box!

-That boy is not playing with YOU.

0:05:150:05:22

-Arthur, is there another game you can play?

-I'll go set it up.

0:05:220:05:28

I can't write a report on Confuse The Goose.

0:05:280:05:33

-Everyone will laugh at me.

-Why not read a book?

-That's quiet....eh, fun.

0:05:330:05:41

Mom and Dad said I didn't have to play with you.

0:05:430:05:48

Mom! Arthur said YOU said he didn't have to play with me!

0:05:480:05:55

-I don't know what you can do, Arthur.

-It's so boring here.

-I'm ready!

0:05:550:06:03

Mm-hm! Mm-hm!

0:06:030:06:09

Just watch wrestling until the rain stops. How long can it rain for?

0:06:090:06:15

'This system is very similar to a monsoon when it rains for a month.'

0:06:150:06:22

Arthur? Are you still there?

0:06:220:06:26

It would be SO hard to play ONE game of Confuse The Goose with me(!)

0:06:260:06:33

-"Once upon a time..."

-Let me guess. They live happily ever after, right?

0:06:330:06:41

-Right.

-I knew it.

0:06:410:06:44

BORING!

0:06:440:06:46

SHOUTING

0:06:460:06:49

SCREAMING, DOG BARKS

0:06:570:07:00

Everybody, freeze!

0:07:120:07:15

Arthur's trying to bite my nose.

0:07:180:07:21

-Is that any way to treat a book?

-No, but SHE didn't want me to read it.

0:07:210:07:29

Why don't you draw?

0:07:290:07:33

-What did you draw?

-A dog and he's bored.

-I drew a stick.

-A stick?!

0:07:330:07:40

From the park where you promised to take me!

0:07:400:07:45

-I never promised!

-Did too!

-Did not!

0:07:450:07:50

-We'll never get anything done.

-Did too!

-Did not!

-Did not!

0:07:500:07:56

Have fun at Grandma's!

0:08:000:08:04

-It's raining! We'll die out here!

-Come on!

0:08:040:08:11

-If you'd behaved, we'd still be dry.

-Me?!

0:08:130:08:18

I'm the cute one! YOU'RE annoying.

0:08:180:08:22

Oh, great(!) A really exciting report about visiting my grandma(!)

0:08:220:08:29

"I went to my grandma's. She's nice. The end."

0:08:290:08:34

-I'm doomed.

-Hurry up! Come in, children.

0:08:340:08:39

-This is only good weather for ducks.

-Quack-quack. Beautiful weather!

0:08:390:08:48

-I thought if you were bored, you might help me...

-..Watch TV?

0:08:480:08:55

No, Arthur. Help me clean out the attic.

0:08:550:09:00

-But cleaning is boring. Look at all this stuff.

-Wow!

0:09:000:09:06

I was starting when your dad begged me...I decided to invite you over.

0:09:060:09:13

-This is kind of creepy.

-That was your father's. So were these.

0:09:180:09:25

-It's a dress with legs!

-They're bell-bottom pants, silly.

0:09:250:09:32

-I have a picture of him in them.

-Hello, hello, hello.

-Here it is.

0:09:320:09:40

Flip that switch, Arthur.

0:09:420:09:46

Daddy's a goof!

0:09:500:09:53

-Where's the hurliewhirl?

-It wasn't built yet.

0:09:530:09:58

If that was Wonderworld, the mall would be right there.

0:10:030:10:08

-They closed the wildlife reserve to build the mall.

-Really?

0:10:080:10:14

"Then my dad made me stop drumming so I watched wrestling."

0:10:260:10:32

"After watching eight hours of wrestling, I hope to be a wrestler.

0:10:320:10:39

"Then I could pulverise people and get paid!"

0:10:390:10:44

"I watched wrestling all day.

0:10:440:10:49

"It was very...interesting.

0:10:490:10:53

< "The end."

0:10:530:10:55

Boy, it's like living through the most boring day ever twice!

0:10:550:11:02

Arthur, you're next.

0:11:040:11:07

-"On Saturday, I went to my grandma's..."

-Fascinating(!)

0:11:100:11:16

No, it wasn't boring. Grandma!

0:11:160:11:21

This is when my house was the only one on the block.

0:11:270:11:32

Comics cost 25 cents!

0:11:320:11:35

Wow! Cool!

0:11:350:11:37

That's the high school.

0:11:370:11:41

Do you know who that boy is?

0:11:430:11:46

That's Mr Hayne - your principal.

0:11:460:11:50

-My grandma knows so much cool stuff.

-Will OUR grandparents know about it?

0:11:530:11:59

Probably even more! Why not ask them?

0:11:590:12:04

Here comes somebody you might recognise.

0:12:040:12:08

That boy is Mr Ratburn!

0:12:120:12:18

My grandma is great. She knows everything a grown-up oughta know.

0:12:360:12:43

-And when Bionic Buddy's about to escape from Dr Warthog...

-Who?

0:12:430:12:49

He's part of the Rat Gang, David. Get with the programme. ..Go on.

0:12:490:12:57

'She's always there if someone gets sick.'

0:12:570:13:01

Safe!

0:13:010:13:04

There's only one thing you never want to hear her say.

0:13:040:13:09

Arthur! DW! Cookies!

0:13:090:13:14

Kids? Mm. They were here a minute ago.

0:13:160:13:20

Wait! Come back!

0:13:260:13:29

-The kids' doctor is Dr...

-..Bailey.

0:13:350:13:39

-His number...

-..On the refrigerator next to the numbers where you'll be.

0:13:390:13:46

Thanks, Thora. We'll be back when my dad's better.

0:13:460:13:52

I love taking care of these kids. I'll cook them something special.

0:13:520:14:00

-There's money so you can order in.

-I know you think I'm a terrible cook.

0:14:020:14:08

That's cos you're a professional. I've got a new recipe to try.

0:14:080:14:15

Grace, I'd be happy to help out.

0:14:180:14:22

One tablespoon...

0:14:220:14:27

Well, it seems like short notice, but it should be no problem.

0:14:270:14:33

Why don't you and Carole come by tonight and we'll finalise?

0:14:330:14:40

It's the recipe for my topographical map of Mexico.

0:14:470:14:52

-We could pretend to be sick.

-No way! She'd just make us her chicken soup.

0:14:520:15:00

Puke-arama!

0:15:000:15:02

-Maybe it won't be that bad.

-Remember last Thanksgiving...

0:15:020:15:09

when Grandma made pecan pie?

0:15:090:15:15

CRUNCH

0:15:160:15:18

You should take the nuts out of their shells.

0:15:200:15:24

-Why not tell her her cooking is bad?

-And hurt her feelings?

0:15:240:15:30

-You're right. Hey! I know who'll eat it!

-Kids! Dinner!

0:15:300:15:37

Hold on, Carole. Holler if you want more, kids.

0:15:440:15:49

We've only got two days to get this in order...

0:15:490:15:54

-Spread it around so it looks like you ate some.

-Maybe it's not too bad.

0:15:540:16:01

Arthur, you're the bravest big brother ever.

0:16:040:16:09

-Trade you! Look! Yum, yum!

-DW, leave Powell alone.

0:16:130:16:18

Can't I just taste it?

0:16:180:16:22

He's not as dumb as he looks.

0:16:220:16:25

-Who'd like pudding?

-Em...

0:16:270:16:32

It may have been on the stove a bit long. I was phoning.

0:16:320:16:37

-Are you going to run the bingo again?

-This year it's a bake sale.

0:16:370:16:44

-Guess who's in charge?

-You... You're gonna cook for other people?

0:16:440:16:52

Say, maybe you kids could help me make signs.

0:16:520:16:57

Scrape off the burnt bits and it'll be fine.

0:16:570:17:01

That doesn't sound so bad to me. You need a sales plan. ..Ah!

0:17:010:17:08

-What's that?

-Who says you have to tell people it's food?

0:17:100:17:15

You could tell people they're for exercise.

0:17:150:17:21

Or maybe you could use it for clay and make a statue. It'd last forever.

0:17:280:17:36

-I don't think so, Buster.

-Well, then, I guess...you've got no choice.

0:17:520:18:00

You'll have to tell her the truth.

0:18:000:18:03

I was afraid you'd say that.

0:18:030:18:07

-Catch!

-Tomatoes?!

-Can't make cookies without breaking a few tomatoes!

0:18:130:18:21

We're sure to hook a lot of the old girls with your wonderful flyers.

0:18:260:18:33

Grandma...there's something I need to tell you. It's your cooking.

0:18:330:18:41

It's just that...

0:18:410:18:45

It kind of tastes...

0:18:450:18:47

-Thora!

-Well, hello, Sarah!

0:18:470:18:51

I heard a blurb on the radio for our bake sale. How did you do it?

0:18:510:18:58

Arthur, the good ship PTA would be sunk in days without your gran.

0:19:000:19:07

-You must be awfully proud.

-Ye..ah.

0:19:070:19:11

I'll just mosey on back to the old homestead. Do you want a hand, Thora?

0:19:110:19:19

Yes! I mean, don't you need help?

0:19:190:19:24

I already have two assistants. I expect you to have plenty cobbler.

0:19:240:19:31

That's very grown up of you to offer to help, but it's all under control.

0:19:330:19:39

-Oops! Nothing to worry about.

-But you said we were your assistants.

0:19:390:19:46

Cooking runs in our family. Your father started at your age, Arthur.

0:19:460:19:54

I believe it.

0:19:540:19:56

We have to change our names so no-one knows we had anything to do with it.

0:19:560:20:03

-If we could just keep people from buying them.

-I'm Mrs B Forkenstern.

0:20:030:20:12

Wait a minute, DW! I know how to stop people buying those cookies.

0:20:120:20:18

-How?!

-Just wait till tomorrow.

0:20:180:20:22

Sarah will be collecting money. If you have any problems, grab me.

0:20:220:20:29

-Thora, one of the banners blew down.

-Kids, finish off. I'll be back soon.

0:20:290:20:38

So how'll you stop people from buying the cookies?

0:20:380:20:43

Ssh! I brought my birthday money. It should be enough to buy them all.

0:20:430:20:50

-You can't eat them! You're too young to die!

-I won't EAT them. Come on.

0:20:500:20:58

My locker's here. We'll stuff them in until...

0:21:010:21:07

-Grandma!

-What'll we do?

0:21:070:21:11

I've got it. Come on!

0:21:140:21:18

It's no good. The grommets are torn out.

0:21:180:21:22

-But if you had some sticks...?

-Wait here! I've got just the thing.

0:21:220:21:29

-Look, Grandma! The bake sale is a big success.

-What? They're all sold?

0:21:290:21:38

Well...

0:21:380:21:41

< CRASH!

0:21:410:21:43

Mr Morris, are you all right?

0:21:450:21:49

-Is Mr Morris OK?

-His foot isn't broken, thank goodness.

0:21:520:21:58

But something very heavy fell on it. Who put my cookies in that closet?

0:21:580:22:07

Well...er...we did, Grandma.

0:22:070:22:11

-Arthur, DW, but why?

-We didn't want to hurt your feelings.

0:22:110:22:18

Thora, there you are! It's already our best year ever.

0:22:180:22:26

Sarah, tell me the truth.

0:22:280:22:32

Am I a bad cook?

0:22:320:22:35

You? Why do you ask?

0:22:350:22:38

You're just too busy to cook.

0:22:440:22:48

-We still love you.

-You're good at other things, like costumes.

0:22:480:22:55

And when you fixed Daddy's car.

0:22:550:22:58

No matter how long you slice it, you'll never make a meal from a bike.

0:22:580:23:04

Better to ride it.

0:23:040:23:07

I suppose that's right. I'm lucky to have you three.

0:23:070:23:12

-Back to work on that banner.

-We'll clean up those cookies.

0:23:120:23:19

Oh, and, Arthur, DW...

0:23:190:23:23

thanks for telling me the truth. It took courage.

0:23:230:23:28

We love you, Grandma.

0:23:280:23:32

Where did all the cookies go?

0:23:320:23:35

They're all cleaned up! MUNCHING >

0:23:350:23:38

Hey, look what I found!

0:23:400:23:44

A little dirty but delightful.

0:23:440:23:49

# And I say, hey!

0:23:520:23:55

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

0:23:550:24:00

# And get along with each other

0:24:000:24:03

# You gotta listen to your heart

0:24:030:24:05

# Listen to the beat Listen to the rhythm of the street

0:24:050:24:11

# It's a simple message And it comes from the heart

0:24:110:24:16

# Believe in yourself For that's the place to start
