  • Episode Description
  • #110901 "D.W. on Ice" When Emily announces a skating party to celebrate mid-winter, D.W. brags about being a great skater. She feels she's so good that she even offers lessons to James, who is worried about his skating skills. D.W., however, is overconfident, having only gone ice-skating three times in her life. She begins to learn that sometimes it takes practice to be good at something. #110902 "Spoiled Rotten!" When Francine accuses Muffy of being a spoiled brat, Muffy is determined to prove otherwise. The school's clothing drive seems like the perfect opportunity, but Muffy's ideas of charity don't exactly impress Francine. Muffy wrestles with the idea of being spoiled and tries to learn what it means to be charitable.moreless

    • Francine: I'm sorry I called you "spoiled." Muffy: Well, if the shoe fits... (both laugh) Francine: By the way, you were only kidding about the foot fungus thing, right? Muffy: Uh...

    • Muffy: Sue Ellen, Binky, even the Brain --- they all agreed with Francine. But just because I'm rich doesn't mean I'm spoiled --- does it, Bailey? Bailey: I believe it is one's attitude towards privileges that determines such a thing.

    • Muffy: You don't think I'm spoiled, do you? Well, do you? Arthur and Buster: No. Of course not. Buster: But something in this coat definitely is. Oh, yeah. This is from when my Mom and I went caroling last year. It's bologna. Or maybe tuna.

    • Narrator: How about if we just call you the little princess? You are that. Muffy: How about we call you "fired?" Narrator: Snow White warned me not to take this gig.

    • D.W.: I don't want to do a simple turn. I want to do fancy stuff. Arthur: You can't do fancy stuff until you learn the basics.

    • Postcards from You: The first postcard is from Matthews Elementary School in Austin, Texas.

They can be seen feeding pigeons and wearing masks and riding the "Zilker Zephyr" train ride.) The second postcard is from Jacob Burley of Minneapolis, Minnesota. He talks about his family members and is seen playing his favorite sport, basketball. Note: "Keep Austin Weird" is an actual campaign created by the Austin Independent Business Alliance. It promotes preserving the city's "unique cultural identity" and various products with the phrase printed on them are available.

It's the one where Arthur pulls the handle on a slot machine and portions of various characters' faces spin in the three slots until Muffy's face forms.

    Allusions (1)

    • Muffy: Bailey, do you think I'm spoiled? Bailey: Um, a poet once said "everything is spoilt by use. Where's the cheek that doth not fade too much gazed at?" Muffy: What does that mean? Bailey: I have no idea. Good night, Miss Muffy. The great poet in question was John Keats and the verse quoted is from his poem "Fancy."
