  • Episode Description
  • The Matress: Grandpa is suffering from aches and pains all over his body. The cause of all his suffering -- his mattress, which he was sleeping on since World War II; he was sleeping in it for so long, he has left his body-shaped indentation on the mattress. Stu forces Grandpa to give it up by throwing the old mattress into the trash and buy a state-of-the-art bed in its place. While Stu throws the mattress away, the Rugrats look on, thinking that it was the monster that caused Grandpa to writhe in pain so much. Looking For Jack: On the way to a "Dummi Bears" concert, Charlotte's minivan gets a flat tire after running over a bunch of broken bottles of olive oil. She looks for a jack, but the minivan wasn't equipped with one, so she calls her mechanic, without success. Meanwhile, the Rugrats try to look for a "Jack" for her, but ended up inside an Italian restaurant. They found a "Jack", but this "Jack"'s an Italian restaurateur with an interest in the "Dummi-Bears".moreless

    • Didi: Thanks for taking the kids, Charlotte. I would have, but the cheese festival only comes once a year, and this year's theme is Camombaire, and you know how Stu always-

    • Tommy: Poor Spike! He wants to go to the Dummi Bears concert, too. Chuckie: (Laughing) This is going to be the "bestest" show ever Tommy. Do you think Jelly Bear will be there? I hope so. Maybe we can get a poster or, or a picture. Maybe I'll even get to meet Jelly Bear. Oh my gosh. What would I say to him? I hope he sings this song. (Starts singing) "Happy happy happy happy happy -" (Angelica stops him by shoving a blanket in his mouth) Angelica: Hey, you're wrecking the song! Charlotte: (On the phone to her assistant) Jonathan, I'm going to a Dummi Bears concert. Don't complain to me about your day.
