Episode Summary

EDIT
Big Dreams
AIRED:
Alvin gets a registered letter from the Publishing Warehouse stating he is a winner. He either can take $500 or the mystery prize (which might end up to be a million dollars or nothing more than a free lunch), but has to call by 6:00 p.m. to decide. So Simon uses his experimental time machine to get a glimpse into what the future holds for the gang if Alvin takes the $500 or the mystery prize.moreless

      • Alvin Jr.: Remember the good old days, Mother, when we had all the Christmas beans we could eat?
        Brittany: Yes. But we've used up all our savings. And your father is too sick to work.
        Alvin Jr.: (in tears) Because of that Mystery Prize he chose when you guys were young.
        Alvin Jr. 2: If he hadn't gotten that food poisoning from the free lunch...
        Alvin Jr.: Which weakened his vocal cords year after year...
        Brittany: (in tears) He would never have had to give up his singing career! (furiously) I told him to take the cash! But would he listen?! NO!!!

      • (in Simon's time machine's vision of the future if Alvin chooses the $500 cash prize, Theodore and Eleanor enter Alvin's mansion, where Alvin and Brittany's kids rush in)
        Alvin Jr.: Uncle Theodore! Aunt Eleanor! Look what Daddy gave us! Diamond guitars!
        Alvin Jr. 2: And ruby picks!
        Alvin: What else does a rich rock star give his sons for their birthdays?
        Brittany: (shows everyone a ring with a huge diamond) And look what Alvin gave me. A 2-pound emerald! Oh! Alvin is just so generous!
        Alvin: Hey, it's easy when you're filthy rich.

      • Brittany: What if the Mystery Prize is nothing but a stupid free lunch?! I want... I want the mansion! And the diamonds! (checks Alvin's watch) It's 5:45. Call them! NOW!!
        (she whacks Simon's time machine back into shape)

      • (Alvin tries to open the locked door to the basement, where Simon is working)
        Alvin: Simon!
        Simon: Not now, Alvin! I'm working on my time machine.
        Alvin: Brittany!
        (he zips into the Chipettes' house)
        Alvin: Brittany, I need your advice!
        (he walks up to the Chipettes, who are having a drink at the table)
        Brittany: Take the cash.
        Alvin: Right. I'll call right now, and tell them that I don't want the Mystery Prize. I want the $500.
        (he rushes up to the phone and dials the number, but the Chipettes cut in)
        Brittany: Wait! What if the Mystery Prize is millions?!
        Alvin: (dollar signs appear in his eyes) Millions?!
        Jeanette and Eleanor: But what if it isn't?
        Alvin: But what if it is?! What do I do?! Simon!
        (he rushes back home)

      • Alvin: Theodore! Listen to this! I'm a winner in the Publishing Warehouse Sweepstakes! It says here that I can either choose $500 in cash or a Mystery Prize. The Mystery Prize may be anything from lunch for 4 to $1,000,000 or more. Theodore, what should I do? Take the cash or the Mystery Prize?
        Theodore: The Mystery Prize.
        Alvin: But what if it turns out to be nothing but a free meal?
        Theodore: What's wrong with a free meal?
        (Alvin sighs)

      • Alvin: (on the phone, in hopes of winning the $500 cash prize) What do you mean, I sound like a kid? I am a kid! A rich kid!
        (dollar signs appear in his eyes, but...)
        Alvin: What?
        (the dollar signs in his eyes crack back down to dots)
        Alvin: Oh. O-Okay.
        (he sits down in despair; Brittany rushes up to him)
        Brittany: What is it?! WHAT'S WRONG?!?!
        Alvin: (in tears) You have to be over 18 to win!
        (he and Brittany start to cry and hug)
        Simon: Why does none of this come as a surprise?!
