We meet Blue at the door and Joe asks her about what she's doing. He says that he was just playing with his stuffed duck, Boris. In fact, it's Boris's lunchtime. He says that Boris's favorite food is chocolate pickle stew with extra tomatoes and that he just loves playing with him. Blue shows up with her own stuffed toy, Polka Dots and Joe wonders what they're going to play. In this episode, we learn about Blue's friend Polka Dots, learn more about Boris the duck and exercise our imaginations. As Blue plays with some blocks, Joe goes off to look for Boris. In fact, he's so occupied with Boris that we just spend our time with Blue. We find Slippery, who's playing "Rescue Team." He wearing a police hat and needs somebody to be a firefighter, so Blue lends Polka Dots to play. Together, they rescue a pig that was trapped in a tree. Afterwards, we find Tickety, who lost her number 3 (not the one on her clockface, but rather a card with "3" on it) under the bed. Blue helps out by letting her take Polka Dots with her to go to look for it and we also help her to select a flashlight from three items to light the way. Later, while Joe practices tumbling with Boris, we go visit Periwinkle in the fort in the backyard. He introduces us to his friend "Mr. Plate" - a standard kitchen plate decorated with eyes and a smiling face. Using our imaginations, we pretend to go underwater, where Mr. Plate is an octopus and Periwinkle's a deep-sea diver. Then, Periwinkle pretends that Mr. Plate is wearing a white coat, has a big scale and something (a stethoscope) around his neck - a doctor. He then imagines Mr. Plate to be a monster, a friendly monster.
