  • [repeated line] Thumpeka!
  • Bye-bye, moon! [snaps his fingers] Disappear! Disappear! Disappear! Disappear! Disappear!
  • Great rolling rutabagas. I snapped the moon out of the sky and sunk it.
  • But what if we can think up a rainy-day game that you like? Something really, really, really fun. [Mouse: Fun? In the rain? I don't know.] Can we try? Pretty please with radishes on top.
  • I wanna sleep in my own cozy, warm, dark, dry, safe, quiet sleeping hole. But this big thing's in the way and I can't think of how to move it. I'm so tired, I can't think of anything.
  • Maybe the worms can help us look.


  • [repeated line] Oh my quivering whiskers!
  • I'm gonna build sand animals. What are you gonna do at the pond?
  • Have you ever tried to sleep somewhere other than your own bed? Sometimes it's not easy. That's what my friend Rabbit found out the night we all invited him to share our sleeping spots. It all started on a windy evening just before bedtime.
  • We never did move the big branch that was blocking the doorway to Rabbit's sleeping hole. But, working together, we dug two new doorways, and even made his cozy, warm, dark, dry, safe and quiet sleeping hole bigger. Good thing, too, because after all that digging, we were all ready for a nap.
  • So that's how we finally got to enjoy Batilda's story. Once we started thinking about why the bees were hanging around Edweena, we solved the problem. I guess sometimes it helps to look at things a new way.


  • A baby bird in my hands all along. And now I have to take care of it until Jasper finds it's mother.
  • [Reciting his poem] The flowers smell so sweety-sweet. Hello birdie, tweety-tweet. Berries are my favourite thing. Birds and flowers, it must be Spring.
  • I can do help. What's the matter?
  • Hi, Jasper. Rabbit's fishing for the moon.
  • Maybe bees only listen to other bees.
  • We could sing! [Mouse: How will singing get us out of the mud?] Uh, I don't know. But it's fun. And I don't have any more ideas.
  • Hazel's always planning things for us. Let's plan something for her. Come on! We need to tell everyone.


  • This is not good. I've been stuck in a tree, stuck in a rut, stuck for an answer, and stuck in the snow, but I've never been stuck in the mud. Until now. And I wanna be unstuck!
  • [suggesting ideas for Pearl's nest] And, of course, you'll need places for keeping nuts and combing your fur and - [Pearl: But I don't have nuts or fur. I just want it soft.]
  • Oh! An acorn! Oh, a rock. Hey, a rock. This would be perfect for my rock collection. If I had a rock collection. Quaking acorns. That's it. If I can't collect acorns, I'll collect other things instead.
  • Okay, guys, here's how it's done. First, you climb a tree. Then you pick a nut off the branch and stuff it into your cheek. Like this. Then, you carry it up here to my hidey-hole, name the nut, then store it. I'm calling you Shirley. Easy-breezy. Can you do that?


Rabbit: How can we make the tree drop the leaf?
Amber: I drop stuff when I stub my foot.
Pearl: I drop stuff when my wings get all slippery.
Coral: I drop stuff when Jade tickles me.
Jade: Like this?
[She tickles Coral who bursts out laughing]

Thunder: Whoa! I wanna do nose-tapping.
Jasper: Well, I don't know if you can, because the Wackadoo is just a story.

Rabbit: Maybe the worms can help us look.
Worm: Huh?
Coral: Maybe they're buried at the pond.
Jade/Pearl/Amber: Coral!
Coral: It was worth a try.

Mouse: This is silly. We always think of things.
Rabbit: Even when don't want to think of things, we think of things. What'll we do?
Mouse: Let's go tell the others about Jasper's birthday.

[Everyone is listing to the stuff around them]
Pearl: I hear a crow.
Amber: Is that the wind?
Coral: Deer flies.
Jade: Ow! One bit me.

Mouse: Hi Hazel. Have you seen any strawberried around here?
Hazel: Let's see. I've seen mooseberries, gooseberries, a goose eating mooseberries and a moose eating gooseberries. But nope, I haven't seen any starwberries.

Mouse: Accidents do happen and sometimes you can't fix them. But you can change your mind about them and you can turn a problem into a big surprise.
[A ladybug lands on Mouse's head and starts licking the raspberry juice he has on him]
Ladybug: Mmm, raspberry.
Mouse: [giggles] Stop, that tickles.

Hazel: Here ya' go, Rabbit. Some nice, soft grass.
Mouse: And carrot juice, your favorite.
Hazel: Uh oh! Wait! [whispering] Carrot juice is an energy drink. It will just give him more bounce. We need something to take his bounces away.

Beaver: Gee whiskers, Is it bath day?
Thunder: I found a beaver!
Beaver: [chuckles] And I have the big teeth, big tail, and furry fur to prove it. He already checked. [Thunder chuckles] So, I hear there's some kind of fur-fuffle?
Rabbit: I made your dam leak. I'm sorry.
Mouse: Can you fix it?
Beaver: Why would I want to fix it? You made it so I can have a shower anytime I want. [walks to Rabbit and feels the water] Oh! Oh. Oh, That's nice.
Mouse: You mean like it this way?
Rabbit: It's okay guys, You can let go.
[Everyone begin to play in the water]

Mouse: We never did move the big branch that was blocking the doorway to Rabbit's sleeping hole. But, working together, we dug two new doorways, and even made his cozy, warm, dark, dry, safe and quiet sleeping hole bigger. Good thing, too, because after all that digging, we were all ready for a nap.
Rabbit: Thank you for making room for all my friends.
Coral/Jade/Amber/Pearl: [sigh dreamily]
Edweena: [snores and trumpets]
Mouse: Even the one who snores. [sighs happily]
