: Ep 35 -
It is Good Neighbor week. A celebration parade marches through the city, and Good Neighbor balloons are being handed out to the kids who are good neighbors. Teddy gives his ice cream cone to Davey so that he is a good neighbor, Davey gives his ice cream cone to Goliath because he is a good neighbor, and Jimmy eats his ice cream cone because he is a good neighbor to himself. After ice cream, they go to Mr. Lotts house to rake leaves. Mr. Lotts's arm is broken and the kids help out. The boys get a bon-fire and money out of the task as a reward. Later, on the way to Montgomery Park, a little girl falls off of her wagon and gets her dress caught on it. Jimmy walks by and sees the girl on the ground, but all he cares about it getting the balloon, so he walks by without stopping. Teddy walks by and the girl cries "Help me, help me". Teddy says "I can't. I gotta get my balloon" and then walks off. And then Davey walks by. Davey helps her untangle her dress from the wagon and goes out of his way to help this girl, who is also lost to get home. By the time he gets to get his balloon, there isn't any left. Davey tells his story to Jimmy and Teddy. The story closes with this dialouge.
Teddy: She's not your neighbor.
Davey: She is to. She needed help
Jimmy: Did her mother pay you?
Davey: I didn't do it for pay.
Jimmy: You didn't even get a balloon, but I did.... Cause I'm a good neighbor.
(Then the balloon pops right in Jimmy's face.)moreless
