  • Episode Description
  • Davey is helping Officer Dan direct traffic on the sidewalk. He encounters a kid who is walking and almost gets killed a couple of times. Goliath saves the kid from almost getting hit by an ambulance. As the kid is on the ground, Davey asks what's the matter with him. It looks as though he is pointing to his head. Davey then says "You bet you ought to shoot yourself for being so dumb". Davey then learns later on that the kid is deaf and cannot speak. It all makes sense to him now. Davey eventually wants to know what it's like to be deaf so he wears earplugs and doesn't talk to see what it's like. Davey then realizes how fortunate he is to be able to posess the sense of hearing. He goes to a deaf school to visit the kid and the kid says "Thank you" through signs, for saving his life.moreless

    • The message in this story is tolerance towards deaf people. When Davey and Jonathan is sitting in the drug store having their sodas, Jonathan's dad says "If you never knew how words sound, you wouldn't know how to make sounds. Some deaf people can learn how to talk and read lips.The other method is talking with their hands, spell words with their fingers and make signs." This episode gives insight on what it is like to be deaf and informs people on the education of people that exist in our society and deserve all of the respect and treatment hearing people posess.
