Episode Summary

EDIT
A Breath of Autumn!
AIRED:
It's Labor Day and to show Laura's Mom that they appreciate all of her hard work, Laura and her Dad are helping out around the house. They're doing chores such as vacuuming and other cleaning and later, they're going to make her a special dinner. Speaking of vacuuming, Hamtaro's a little close - to the vacuum. He nearly gets sucked in, but Mom notices and swoops in and picks him up. Laura thanks her, calling her a nice save. She tells her that she needs to leave though, as they really want her to just relax. Hamtaro notes that he isn't working either, but he wishes that he could do something, since Laura's Mom is always so helpful to him. Laura and Laura's Dad discuss the things that they're doing for her. Laura says that he forgot to get flowers. Hamtaro goes into the living room, where he sees Laura's Mom, sitting in front of a window. He notices that she seems to be happily watching the falling leaves. She comments that she hasn't feeled this relaxed since "that day." Hamtaro notices that the leaves she's watching are red. He decides that he'll help her out by finding more leaves like that. He heads out of the house and lands on top of Brandy. He heads towards the clubhouse, but it turns out Boss, Bijou and Oxnard were already heading his way. Hamtaro tells them about what he wants to do. Boss tells Hamtaro that most leaves aren't green. He's not sure where Hamtaro would find something like that. Neither is Oxnard. Then, Bijou has an idea. She explains how when it gets colder, the color of leaves changes from green to different colors, including red. They wonder where they could find someplace where it's colder. Then, they see it: a nearby mountain! It's filled with trees that are changing color! They decide to take their packs, thinking that in addition to the leaves, they're also sure to find lots of neat acorns and other things. They climb the mountain and find a beautiful sight. And it's fille with neat things, just like they thought. Hamtaro gets very excited and starts gathering things up like crazy. He's so into it that he basically forgets about the loves. Meanwhile, Boss tries to win Bijou's affection by making her a pretty costume out of some leaves he found. As she admires it, he tries to tell her something (that he loves her?) But he just freezes up and starts stammering like it always happens when he tries to tell her something like that. Then, Hamtaro races through and it breaks up the moment. Not long afterwards, some black clouds roll in and it looks like it's going to rain. So the ham-hams make a beeline down the mountain. Then, Hamtaro sees a large tree filled with bright-red leaves and remembers what he came for. Boss, Bijou and Oxnard discourage him from going, as it's starting to rain and flash lightning and it's rather dangerous. But Hamtaro goes anyway and gathers up some nice leaves. Then, he falls and ends up hanging from a cliff. He nearly falls to his death, but Boss lowers a stick to him and Bijou and Oxnard help to pull him up. He has to dispose of some of his stuff, but it saves his life. With Hamtaro rescued, the ham-hams head back. At Laura's, Laura's Dad sees the storm clouds rolling in. Laura tells him that he get the flowers tomorrow, at least he did the laundry. The mention of laundry makes Laura's Dad realize that the laundry is hanging out on the line to dry. If they don't get it off, it's going to get soaked! After that's taken care of, they treat Laura's Mom to an outdoor meal. Laura's Mom comments to herself that she should help them cook, but then again, maybe she'll just watch. The ham-hams arrive just in time to see the dinner. Then, Laura and her Dad present Mom with a gift-certificate booklet. They're for massages, for any time in the future she may need to relax. They tell her about how they day has made them appreciate the hard work she does. Laura's Mom also tells Laura's Dad that she's not going to let his hard work go unrewarded either. She presents him with a nice, new tie. Hamtaro decides that it's the right time. He sends the leaves he gathered flying down. Laura's Mom says it's just like "that day" and has a flashback sequence of a similar day, up on the mountain, with Laura's Father. She asks him if he remembers it and he does. Laura suggests that next Labor Day, they all go up to see the mountain leaves changing together. That night, Laura reflects on all she learned on how hard her Mom works. And Hamtaro thinks about how happy Laura's Mom was to see the red leaves. He's glad he could help out.moreless
