As we head on inside, we find Blue chasing a firefly. Steve welcomes us in, saying that we must be here for the pajama party. He's ready: he has on his green-striped pajamas and bunny slippers. Of course, it wouldn't be any fun if we just went right to sleep and Steve certainly seems to think so: he insists that he's not sleepy, despite evidence of yawning. So before getting ready for bed, we have some fun. After watching Mr. Salt and Mrs. Pepper put Paprika to bed, we head outside, where we find Shovel and Pail listening to the sounds of the night and playing a game called "Nighttime Flash and Find." We learn that there are some animals that stay awake at night. We identify an owl by its hoot, a cricket from its chirping and a squeaking bat. All of these animals are nocturnal - they're awake at night and then rest during the daytime. Later, Steve thinks of a deep question: just why is it that we have night? Blue, Steve and us become "Pajamanauts" and skidoo into outer space, where we have a chat with the sun and the Earth and learn that the Sun is always shining, but because the earth is always spinning, parts of it are in a shadow, away from the Sun's light, thus causing night.
