My name is Agent Olive. This is my partner, Agent Otto.
This is my lucky pencil.
But back to Otto and me.
We work for an organisation run by kids that investigates anything
strange, weird and, especially, odd.
Our job is to put things right again.
Who do we work for?
We work for Odd Squad.
-Thanks for coming, Odd Squad.
-What seems to be the problem, sir?
Well, I really want to go swimming
but every time I try to go to the ocean this happens.
A question. Did you say anything bad about the ocean recently?
-Well, I might have said it was cold.
-Oh, no, no, no.
-You shouldn't have done that.
-Really bad move.
-What? It is cold.
-Don't say it again.
-The ocean is mad at you and it's keeping you out.
-Well, what do I do?
-To the ocean?
-I don't see a lake around here.
OK, ocean, I'm sorry you're so sensitive.
-Ah, come on, do it for real, man.
-Ocean, I'm sorry I said those things about you.
-And I really like how blue you are.
And wavy and wet and splashy.
That should do it.
-It worked! Thanks, Odd Squad.
-Have a good day, sir.
Let's get out of here.
This sand is hot.
That's my bad.
For you, for you,
these are for you, I think. This is for that.
Otto, I've never seen you move so fast.
If I finish all my work I can leave early to see
-the Great Grinaldi at the theatre.
-Wait, the what?
You know, where you go see shows?
-No, not that. Grinal...?
The greatest magician in the history of magic.
Here, let me show you.
Prepare to be dazzled, stupefied, thunderstruck!
Grinaldi's magic is so great it is everywhere.
Come, see my magic saw trick where I cut through everything -
Oh, yes, it's happening.
Grinaldi is the one that inspired me to become a magician one day.
I thought you wanted to become an Olympic speed skater?
That was on Monday.
-What about tornado chaser?
-That was on Tuesday.
Wait, oh, no! This show's already started.
I've got to get out of here before Ms O finds something else for me
-I have something for you to do.
-How did you even get in there?
Because I'm everywhere. Now, you two go to the bakery now!
Oh, thanks for coming, Odd Squad.
It's my cakes. They're ruined.
A wedding is supposed to bring people together,
-not split them apart.
-But who would want to steal cakes?
Hang on, partner.
No cakes are missing, the whole thing's still here,
they're just cut into pieces. Which means they're split in half.
But who would want to do something like this?
-No, no, that doesn't sound right.
-Yes. Yeah, that sounds right.
No, no, no! I didn't do this.
Yes, I like splitting things in half but I always steal one half
and leave the other. See?
-Just did that.
-Wait, so all these things are stolen?
I think you're getting away from the point.
Would you like some lemonade?
We're good. We're good.
Look, Harriet, can you please just confess
so we can close the case and I can go and see the Great Grinaldi.
But I'm innocent, I've been in my apartment all day
knitting this half sweater.
-Not half bad.
Go for Olive.
I see. Things are falling apart at the library, too.
Aha! That proves that I didn't do it. I've been here with you two.
-You're right. We're sorry for bothering you.
-That's all right.
Let me show you to the door.
-See you soon.
I'm just going to lock up behind you.
-Let me guess, Mr Fonts, the books are splitting in half?
It's much worse than that, look!
The books started off whole but now they're in four equal pieces.
So, the books split into fourths.
I know who did this - Fourthsie Fourriet.
No such person. But nice try.
Well, whoever's doing it is making the books very difficult to read.
And poor Dustin is having a horrible time shelving, look!
I'm trying so hard!
-Go for Olive.
-How come they always call you?
Agents, there's been another development. I'm sending video.
-I don't see anything.
-It's in Otto's jacket.
One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight. Eight pieces.
I need you to find out who's cutting all these things into pieces.
Stat. As in ASAP.
As in as soon as possible. As in NOW!
You know, I've got an idea.
Let's take a break, go see the Great Grinaldi
and come back to the case with fresh eyes.
Better idea. We're going to the Math Room.
Oh, this is just...
I'm going to have my apple break. Oh, no!
-My apple's in fourths.
Oh, that's better, actually.
-Hi, Math Room.
Let's look over the evidence so far.
First, the cakes at the bakery split into two equal pieces - halves.
But, then, the books split into four equal pieces - fourths.
And the bridge split into eight equal pieces - eighths.
But why halves, then fourths, then eighths?
The Great Grinaldi.
-Otto, can you forget about Grinaldi for a minute?!
Math Room, bring up a picture of Grinaldi in his magic box.
Other magicians saw themselves in half once.
But Grinaldi wants to be better,
so he saws himself in half three times.
And when you split something once
you have one, two equal pieces - halves.
And if you split each of those equal halves in half,
you have one, two, three, four equal pieces - fourths.
And splitting each of those four equal pieces in half again gives you,
one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight equal pieces - eighths.
Math Room, show us a map of the theatre
-where Grinaldi was performing.
It's close to the bakery, the library and the bridge.
Grinaldi did say his magic is so great it's everywhere.
So, it must have leaked outside of the theatre.
We've got to get to Grinaldi's show.
That's what I've been trying to say all day!
Now all eight eighths of the Great Grinaldi shall disappear.
-Odd Squad, Odd Squad! Stop right there, Grinaldi.
What?! What's going on? What...?
Actually, it'll be faster if I just read your minds.
Oh, no, the cake?
And the books? And the bridge?
Oh, I'm so sorry I've caused so much trouble.
And, yes, Otto, you can have my autograph.
-Mr Grinaldi, can you fix it?
But Grinaldi cannot reverse the spell with his head alone.
-I will need an assistant.
-I'll do it!
No. No way.
No way am I going to let you do this...
..looking like that.
-Go get 'em, partner.
Now, assistant, your first job is to put the eight pieces
of the Great Grinaldi back together.
GROANING AND MUTTERING
-Er, not it.
GROANING AND MUTTERING
Still not it.
-Are you sure? You look pretty good to me.
APPLAUSE AND CHEERING
-And now I shall make myself disappear.
-You need to fix the other stuff.
Fractions come together and make one whole.
Well done, agents. Here's your new assignment.
Never fear, the Amazing Otto is on the case.
How long am I going to have to put up with this?
He should be over it by...Friday.
What does he use in that?
