Bitty: [goes over the phone and answers it] Hello?
Eubie: I wonder who's calling.
Kip: With a phone call, it could be anybody.
Wayne: I hope it's not my mom calling because she found those brussel sprouts in the umbrella stand.
[A 2D animated sequence in a thought cloud shows Plunkie calling Bitty about finding some brussel sprouts in the umbrella stand and dumps them out]
Plunkie: I'm sure there is a perfectly reasonable explanation, Bitty. I just don't know what it is.

Bitty: [hangs up; to the kids] That was Grandma-ma. I have to take her to visit Aunt Susie this afternoon, so I won't be able to help make macaroni hats after all. I'm very sorry, kids. I know I said I would, but I really have to go with Grandma-ma.
Twinkle: And I thought we were going to have a lot of fun today.
Wayne: Yeah, fun.

Eubie: [after Fripp sings his sad song; sniffs sadly] That's the saddest song I've ever heard.

Kip: Wow, are you a Higglytown Hero?
Policewoman: Sure. But you know else is a Higglytown Hero? Our police dog, Jiffy.

All Tire'd Out / Great Un-expectations

edit
Wayne: When in doubt, pack everything. When it comes to the beach, you can never be too prepared.

[As the kids and Plunkie head on their way to the beach, the car gets a flat tire and comes to a stop in the middle of the road, and the kids cover their eyes]
Fran: Oh my goodness gracious!
Eubie: Is it thunder? Is it a monster?
Wayne: Don't answer. I don't want to know!
Plunkie: Oh, it's nothing to be afraid of.
Fran: It's just a flat tire.
Plunkie: [hops out of the car and inspects the tire] Oh!
Twinkle: Mom, does this mean we're not going to the beach?

Kip: I can't wear pink, with ribbons.
Twinkle: Well, I want to wear pink, not green.
Wayne: This jacket is itchy.
Eubie: [shivering] Um… I'm kind of cold.
Fran: Nice try, Higgly kids. But I don't think this is gonna work now.
Wayne: Oh. How will we ever get bigger clothes?

Catch Up With Ketchup / Star Struck

edit
Twinkle: Ooh. It's raining marshmallows!
[Two marshmallows land on Wayne's glasses]
Kip: Wayne, you got marshmallow on your glasses.
Wayne: Uh, I can't see. Everything looks like it's covered in marshmallows.
Eubie: [takes Wayne's glasses off his eyes] Maybe I can wipe your glasses off with my shirt.
Kip: No. We can take them inside and wash them off.
Wayne: Wait! I only clean them with my special cleaning cloth. [runs into Eubie and Kip, accidentally breaking his glasses]
Eubie and Kip: Uh-oh!
Wayne: What happened?
Twinkle: Oh, no! Wayne! Your glasses are broken!
Wayne: Broken?! I can't wear my glasses if they're broken! And if I can't wear my glasses, I can't see clearly! [Wayne's POV, his vision is all blurry] It looks… blurry. Like I'm opening my eyes underwater. If everything is blurry, then I'm not gonna be able to see the shooting stars! What am I gonna do?

Fran: Oh, that's a mighty fine idea, Twinkle. Yes, sir, but I'm afraid that lenses made of ice would just melt.
Twinkle: Aw, pickles. [snaps fingers in disappointment]

Twinkle's Wish

edit

Twinkle's Masterpiece / The Egg-cellent Adventure

edit
Wayne: [curiously] Gee, Mom. Don't we even get a hint where we're going?
Plunkie: No. I told you-- it's a surprise. You'll see when we get there.
Fran: Can anyone guess where we're going?
Twinkle: Oh, I hope we're going to the pink puppy poodle palace so we can see all the pink poodles.
Plunkie: You don't have to guess anymore, kids. We're here! [they arrive at an artist's house] This is where my friend Nikki lives. She's an artist, and she's gonna give you art lessons.
Twinkle: Art lessons?
Higgly Kids: Cool!
[A moment later, they stand in front of the front door as Nikki, a blind artist, opens it]
Nikki: Wow. You're right on time! Hey there, future artists. I'm Nikki.
Higgly Kids: Hi, Nikki.

Eubie: Grandpop Crank? You're a Higglytown Hero?

Wayne's Ripping Adventure / Meet Eubie's Cousin

edit
Kip: Wow, Twinkle. You're going to be great at your recital.
Eubie: So a recital is when you perform in front of a lot of people?
Fran: That's right, Eubie.
Twinkle: I wish you could all come, but this recital is only for family members, like my mom and Wayne.
Wayne: Yeah. I can't wait to go.
Plunkie: [exits the front door; to her siblings] Twinkle, Wayne, time to get dressed for the recital.

Plunkie: [reminding Wayne] Once you put on your good clothes, be careful to keep them nice and clean.

Wayne: [after he accidentally ripped his pants] Oh, no! I ripped my good pants! Mom said I have to look nice in my good clothes if I want to go to Twinkle's recital. What am I gonna do?

Eubie: [after Wayne's sad ripped-pants song ends] That's the saddest song I've ever heard.

Wayne: Please don't be mad, Twinkle. I really wanted to nice for your recital. It was an accident.

[The Higgly kids, Aunt Mellie and Uncle Zooter, and Jax are riding an express train heading to Higgly Biggly City]
Fran: Goodness gumballs! You kids sure are excited about this trip to Higgly Biggly City.
Twinkle: Of course! Higgly Biggly City is the only place you can see Happy, Hairy, Higgly Monsters Live!
Eubie: Thanks for taking us, Aunt Mellie and Uncle Zooter.
Aunt Mellie: Of course, Eubie.
Uncle Zooter: It's our pleasure.
Jax: It sure was great to visit you guys in Higglytown, but now I can't wait for you all to see my home city.
Kip: And I can't wait to see Happy, Hairy, Higgly Monsters Live.
Wayne: Me, too. It's supposed to be the best show on Higglyway, and it has all the Happy, Hairy, Higgly Monsters!

[The gang arrives at the theater on Higglyway for the show, only to find that it isn't open yet]
Uncle Zooter: Gee, it looks like…
Aunt Mellie: The theater isn't open yet.
Kids: [dismayed] Aw!
Aunt Mellie: [checks the time on her watch] The show doesn't start…
Uncle Zooter: [checks the time on his watch] For another few hours.
Jax: I've got an idea. Since we have plenty of time, why don't we go see the Higgly Biggly City sights?
Aunt Mellie: Why, Jax, I declare I think that's… a super-dupity idea.

Twinkle: Can you take a bride and groom to a fancy ballroom?
Taxi Driver Hero: I'd love to!
Wayne: Or drive a bobcat to a laundromat?
Taxi Driver Hero: If he's got the fare.

Kip Joins the Circus / Baby Boom

edit
Fran: Well, that sure sounds like a whole, heapin' barrelful of fun, yes siree, but when circuses come to town, they never stay very long.
Eubie: What do you mean?
Fran: I mean, if you joined the circus, you'd always be traveling from town to town, and I'll just bet you'd all miss your families if you had to move from town to town all of the time.
Kip: I know I'd miss my mom and dad, and my big sisters, and my baby sister Pookie, and my grandpa-pa and grandma-ma, and Pizza Guy, and the garden gnome.
Twinkle: I'd miss my family, too.
Wayne: Aw, I really wanted to join the circus.
Uncle Lemmo: Well, kids, maybe you can't run off and join the circus, but maybe you could start your own circus right here in Higglytown.
Eubie: We could?
Uncle Lemmo: Well, sure! And I know just the place.

Kip's Sweet Tooth / Wayne's Lollipop

edit
Kip: Chocolate on chocolate? Way to go, Wayne.
Wayne: But you haven't seen my secret ingredient. I call it, my "Choco-toast-tastic ice cream sandwich sundae."
Kip: Nice going, Eubie. I hope it tastes as good as it looks.
Eubie: My secret ingredient: lucky 4-leaf clover cookie for good luck.
Kip: Ha! That's one nutty sundae, Fran.
Fran: Oh, the nuttier the better, I always say.

Kip: [takes a bite of Wayne's sundae and suddenly feels a pain in his tooth] Ow! Ow, ow, ow, ow! My tooth! My tooth! Too cold! Too cold! I'll never get to eat sundaes again.
Fran: Kip, I don't think the ice cream's the problem. I think the problem is your tooth.
Kip: My tooth? How can I fix it?

Dentist Hero: So, what's the problem, Kip? [Kip mumbles indistinctly with his mouth wide open] Sorry, Kip. I can't understand what you're saying.
Bitty: He tried to eat some ice cream, but every time he took a bite, it hurt.
Dentist Hero: Well, I have to take a close look at your teeth, but it sounds like you might have a cavity.
Kip: A cavity?!

Wayne: [witnessing a gigantic rainbow lollipop] Wow! That's a really big lollipop!
Candy Cart Owner: A gargantuan giant lollipop is what I call it.
Wayne: It's got so many colors.
Candy Cart Owner: Every color of the rainbow, and each one's a different flavor on the tongue. Green is sublimely lime. Red is raucous raspberry. Blue is…
Twinkle: Catch it!
Kip: I got it! I got it!
Eubie: Excuse me.
Wayne: The blue is blueberry?
Candy Cart Owner: Burstin' blueberry. That swirl of yellow is lipsmackin' lemon, and the purple is…
Wayne: Grape-jelly grape. Those are all my favorite flavors.

Kip: Wow! That's the biggest jumbo lollipop I've ever seen!
Twinkle: It's gonna take you forever to lick.
Eubie: Or even longer.

Fran: My, oh, my, that's one colorful idea there, Twinkle. But the thing is, Higglytown's kinda low on Leprechauns this time of year, don't ya know?
Twinkle: [disappointed] Aw…pickles.
Wayne: This is terrible. If I can't find a way to get this lollipop out of my hair, it's gonna be stuck on my head forever. What am I gonna do?!

Higgly Frog Day / Eubie's Ele-fantastic Adventure

edit
Kip: I wonder where Fran is. She said she was gonna meet us here.
Wayne: Yeah. Where could she be?
Fran: [hopping towards the kids, wearing a frog hat] Ribbit. Ribbit. Ribbit. Don't ya know?
Twinkle: Fran, why are you wearing that hat?
Fran: Oh, my wiggly whiskers. You kids didn't forget, did you?
Wayne: Forget what?
Fran: Why, it's Higgly Frog Day!
Eubie: Higgly Frog Day?
Twinkle: [remembers] Oh, yeah! I remember! Lots of higgly frogs live in Higgly Swamp. But during the winter, it gets too cold for that. So every winter, the higgly frogs hop south where it's nice and warm.
Fran: But after winter is over, the higgly frogs return to their homes in Higgly Swamp on this very same day every year.
Twinkle: And they hop right through Higglytown on their way to the swamp.
Fran: That's right. So every year, Higglytown holds a big celebration in the town square to welcome the higgly frogs as they pass through Higglytown on their way to their swampy homes.
Kip: Well, let's get to the town square. Let's go, let's go, let's go!

Uncle Lemmo: The frogs are on their way! Let's start the parade, I say!

[As the higgly frogs hop down the street, they soon get stuck in all the confetti and streamers]
Eubie: The higgly frogs can't hop through all the confetti and streamers.
Fran: They sure can't. That's one big mess out there in the street. You betcha.
Wayne: This is terrible! The higgly frogs can't hop through all this trash. We need to think of some way to get rid of it.
Eubie: But how?
Twinkle: [gets an idea] Oh! Oh! I know, I know, I know! First, we make a big stack of flippy floppy flapjacks. The flying fluffy frog fairies can come eat up all the flippy floppy flapjacks. The flippy floppy flapjacks will give the flying fluffy frog fairies the magical energy they need to change all the trash into little tiny bugs.
Wayne: Wait a second. I don't think I like this plan.
Twinkle: Why not?
Wayne: I don't want all those flies flying around.
Twinkle: They won't. Because higgly frogs love to eat up all the bugs they can. Then the trash will be all gone and the higgly frogs will happily hop off to Higgly Swamp with happy, full frogs tummies.
Fran: That's one magical idea there, Twinkle. But there's just one problem. Flying fluffy frog fairies don't like flippy floppy flapjacks.
Twinkle: [snaps her fingers in disappointment] Aw, pickles.
Kip: We could clean the trash up. But there's too much. It'll take us forever to clean all this up.
Wayne: What are we gonna do? We have to get all this trash cleaned up or the higgly frogs are never gonna get to Higgly Swamp.
Eubie: As Higgly Frog hop-along leader, I declare that we need the help of someone special.

Eubie: Could you sweep a thousand pies if they're falling from the skies?
Kip: Can you clean up the grime of a sticky monster's slime?
Street Sweeper Hero: ♪ Monster slime or falling pie / You can wave them all bye-bye / Cleaning up is what I do / On any street or avenue ♪

Twinkle: Thanks, Ms. Street Sweeper.
Kip: We never could've cleared up the streets without you.
Street Sweeper Hero: Shucks. I'm glad to help out the higgly frogs. Besides, I was just doing my job. Keeping Higglytown clean helps make it a great place to live.
Wayne: It sure does.
Street Sweeper Hero: But remember, everyone, cleaning up is great. But it's even better to keep things clean in the first place. So if you remember not to litter, you can be…
Kids: Higglytown Heroes!

[The Higgly kids and Bitty enter Pookie's room to surprise her as she's woken up from her nap]
Wayne: [whispering] I wonder what Pookie's gonna say when we tell her it's her birthday.
Twinkle: [whispering] I know. She's gonna say, "Goo-goo ga-ga, kee-kee!"
Kids: [whispering] Happy Birthday, Pookie.
[Pookie suddenly starts crying]
Eubie: Oh, no. Pookie's crying.
Twinkle: What happened to the "Goo ga-ga, kee-kee?"
Wayne: Oopsie. Did we do something wrong?
Bitty: No. It's not your fault, kids. Babies often cry when they wake up from their naps. Sometimes they just want be held. [picks up Pookie from her bed for comfort] Watch. There, there, Pookie-poo. Mommy's here. Everything's all right.
[Pookie cries louder]
Kip: She's still crying, Mom.

Kip: Poor Pookie. She's supposed to be happy on her birthday, not sad.
Twinkle: If only there was some way we could make her smile.

Wayne: If Pookie doesn't stop crying, she won't have a happy birthday. And if Pookie doesn't have a happy birthday--
Twinkle: She'll have a sad birthday.

Wayne: He's not doing anything you say.
Kip: I know. What am I gonna do?

Miss Fern: Down, Shadow! Down!
Kip: Sorry, Miss Fern. I tried to control Shadow all morning, but I guess I just can't.
Wayne: This is awful! Our tower is toppled! Our classroom is a mess!

[The Higgly kids arrive at Kip's grandparent's house with some boxes sitting in front]
Kip: Grandpa-pa! Grandma-ma!
Grandpa-pa: Hey there, Kip.
Grandma-ma: It's so good to see you.
Kip: It's good to see you, too.
Grandma-ma: What brings you kids here today?
Kip: We came up here to get some cardboard boxes so we can make a pizza palace for our backyard Higgly Biggly City.
Fripp: Aw, sorry, Kip. But Grandpa-pa and Grandma-ma need all their cardboard boxes. Today is the day they're moving.
Eubie, Wayne & Twinkle: Moving?!
Kip: I knew you were moving, but I didn't know you were moving today.
Wayne: But we don't want you to move away.
Kip: Don't worry. They're not moving far away, just to a brand new house in another part of Higglytown.
Eubie, Wayne & Twinkle: A brand-new house?

Fripp: [takes an old baseball glove off the shelf] Wow. There are so many memories down here. Hard to believe you're packing up and moving out of the house I grew up in.
Kip: [finds a baby photo album and blows off the dust] What's this, Dad?
Fripp: Hey, it's my baby photo album. I bet there's lots of great memories in there.
Kip: [opens the photo album and finds a photo of Baby Fripp] Is that you, Dad?
Fripp: It sure is.
Grandma-ma: Why, that's your father back when he was a brand new, tiny baby. [turns the page to more Baby Fripp photos]
Eubie: You sure were a cute baby, Mr. Kip's Dad.
Twinkle: Yeah! You were a cutesy wootsey wootsey woo.
[Everyone else laughs as Fripp frowns in embarrassment]
Grandma-ma: Your dad used to like it when I'd say, "Gootchie gootchie wah wah."
Fripp: Sorry, everyone, but we have to pack this, too.

Wayne: Yeah. Why won't he stop hopping?

Kip: Are you okay, Dad?
Fripp: I'm fine. But look at this CD. It's covered with scratches. And without Freddy Fever Disco Beaver, my dancing days are over.
Wayne: Say it isn't so! You practiced so hard. Plus, I skipped my toast break so I'd have extra room… for the Banana Horn! What are we gonna do?!
Eubie: Um, get someone special to help us?

Uncle Zooter: How's the painting…
Aunt Mellie: Coming along?
Eubie: Almost finished. There! All done!
Aunt Mellie: [amazed] Why, Eubie, darling.

Kip: My hat!
Twinkle: My tiara!
Wayne: My pizza!
Twinkle: Oh, no!
Plunkie: Quickly, everybody! Help grab what you can and hop indoors before it starts to rain.

Plunkie: What a terrible storm! We should stay away from the window in case it rains.
[Thunder and lightning strike from the dark grey clouds]
Twinkle: Here comes the rain!
Plunkie: I'm just glad we all managed to get indoors in time.
Kip: Oh, no! Look at Pizza Guy!
[Pizza Guy drives through the storm, steering out of control and pizza pellets fly out from the back of his van]
Eubie: I hope Pizza Guy is okay.
Fran: That was a close one.
Wayne: But wait a second. I just thought of something. Didn't Pizza Guy say you're only supposed to add "one" drop of water to his pizza pellets?
Kip: I think so. Why?
Wayne: Because all of his pizza pellets just went flying out into the storm! What's gonna happen when those pellets get soaking wet?!

[After the horrible storm leaves Higglytown, Kip and Eubie reunite with their families]
Bitty: Kip?
Kip: Mom!
Aunt Millie: Eubie!
Bitty: Are you all right?
Aunt Millie: We tried callin'.
Uncle Zooter: But all the phones in town are dead.
Fripp: Then we had to wait until the storm was over until we could head out.
Bitty: Oh, we've been so worried!
Plunkie: Don't worry, We've all been safe inside.
