    • Girl: Mom, there's a potato talking to a dumb-looking pickle with a zipper on it! Mom: Don't worry, sweetie. It's educational television. It's good for you. And you shouldn't say 'dumb' -- it's not nice.

    • Cliff Hanger: Fuzzy Wuzzy wasn't fuzzy, was he? Fuzzy: I am just a baldy-waldy! Chorus: And that's why he's called Cliff Hanger! Cliff Hanger: Can't. hold. on. much. longer.

    • Boy Who Cried Wolf: Hey, I'm just a little boy. I don't know if I'm ready to take on such a big job. Leona: Good point. Studies show girls are better than boys at taking responsibility. Lionel: (snickers) No way. How hard is it to watch sheep?

    • Hen: (reading sign) 'If you really need help, wake the big lion.' Okay. All right. Very good. Yes, um... Theo: (sleeptalking) Hungry! Food! Yum, yum, yum...

    • The Word Doctor: Dr. Ruth Wordheimer resolves another long word freakout. This time she assists a monkey who is having difficulty with the word "intelligent."

    • Gawain's Word: "J" and "ig" are blended to make the word "jig." Right on!

    • A Chicken Waits: This segment is featured throughout the program. A hen wants help finding a library book and reads a sign stating "If you really need help, wake the big lion." However, she finds that she's afraid to wake him up and so simply stands and waits, hoping he'll eventually wake up and she'll be able to get help. She finally gets a push in the right direction and realizes that she can get what she needs herself by looking up the item she wants in the computer catalogue.

    • The three new words children will learn are intelligent, jig, and jiggle.
