  • Episode Description
  • #1110 "Big Brother Binky" When Binky's parents tell him that they're adopting from China, he isn't sure what to make of it at first. He learns that "adopting" means that he's going to become an actual big brother to a baby girl and will be heading to China to meet his new sister. Binky eagerly assists with preparations for the big trip and the new arrival, but begins to become concerned that his parents will no longer have any time for him. After his worries are eased, the big moment finally comes. At first, Binky is ill at ease around his new sister, who seems to cry a lot, but then discovers a special talent. Back at home, he's eager to show off his new talent to his friends, but finds that he seems to have lost it.moreless

    • Binky: They're talking baby talk. Arthur: I wonder what they're saying to each other. Mei Lin: What are those things on your brother's face? Kate: They're called glasses. Mei Lin: Fascinating. My brother's the one with the noodles on his chin.

    • Mr. Read: Isn't it amazing what brothers and sisters learn from each other? D.W.: I learn a lot from Arthur because he makes so many mistakes. If I want to do something right, I just do the opposite of what he does. Arthur: D.W.! D.W.: What? I'm giving you a complimentation!

    • Binky: When Arthur's around, it's like I'm invisible. You'd probably rather have him for a brother.

    • Binky: Look, Mei Lin! I'm a dancing moose! Arthur: (rides by on his bicycle) Hi, Mei Lin! (He rings his bell and she stops crying.) Binky: (to George) What are you looking at?

    • Binky: And then, all I do is this (puffs up cheeks) and she stops crying just like that. But it only works when I do it. Buster: Wow! You have a special gift. Like Tyler the cat psychic on that show Ordinary People with Extraordinary Powers. Arthur: Buster, there's no such thing as a "cat psychic." Buster: Oh yeah? Then how did Tyler know that Mr. Jiggles would only eat minced mackerel?
