  • Episode Description
  • Theo and Cleo decide that Leona and Lionel are ready to take on some responsibility. They give them a pet parakeet and the book What Parakeets Need by Freeman van Fleet. Leona quickly names the parrot Sweety Tweety. Lionel is disgusted by such a cutesy name, but decides that Tweety Sweety could work. As the two continue the debate, they discover something interesting in the book --- parakeets can learn to talk. Leona begins a spirited quest to teach the parakeet to talk, but discovers that it requires patience and not giving up.moreless

    • Busterfield: I don't know why they wanted that parakeet to talk. Birds should not talk. They only give you a headache. Believe me, I know. Birds were meant to go 'tweet, tweet.'

    • Leona: (frustrated over not being able to get parakeet to talk) Lionel, I've been doing this for three weeks, but the only one I've trained to talk is Click. Click: My name is Sweety Tweety. My name is Sweety Tweety. Error! Error!

    • Cleo: (reading from recipe in 'What's Cooking?' segment) Five. Bake for three seconds. Theo: Three seconds? Theo and Cleo: Nah! (They both devour the meat.) Cleo: Sweet!

    • Leona: (singing "Sweet, Sweet, Sweet") It needs love and lots of toys / One or two or three / And the cage door must be closed / So it can't get free.

    • Cleo: Sometimes repsonsibility is about taking care of something or someone. Theo: Like your mother and I are responsible for the library. And, uh, oh, for putting meat on the table. Delicious meat. Wonderful meat. Meat of all kinds!
