Episode Summary

EDIT
Ham-Romance
AIRED:
Kana is doing her fortune-telling again. She reads Laura's cards and says that she's going to predict Laura's husband. That doesn't exactly happen, but she does make a different prediction: that Laura's pet is going to play matchmaker for her. Laura says that she couldn't possibly imagine Hamtaro helping her with Travis. Meanwhile, at the clubhouse, Oxnard is also doing the fortune-telling, which Boss mocks out loud as just being hogwash. Oxnard reads Pashmina's fortune, predicting her future husband. Howdy and Dexter are all excited, until Oxnard says that her future husband is "nobody in this room." He suggests that for right now, she should just concentrate on friends. Boss secretly heads over to Oxnard. He wants Oxnard to tell his fortune - but he also wants him to keep his voice down because it's not like he believes in this stuff or anything. Oxnard reads his cards and says that he will have an unexpected encounter with someone he likes. Oxnard's prediction comes true, when Bijou comes in and Boss bumps into her. Oxnard also predicts Hamtaro's fortune and, mirroring the prediction made earlier by Kana, he predicts Hamtaro as a Cupid. Boss says that Hamtaro doesn't know the first thing about romance, so he'll have to help him. Hamtaro heads home. Laura's there too. Since she thinks Hamtaro is supposed to be her matchmaker, she decides to take him outside with her while she makes a delivery to the post office for her Mom. Hamtaro complains that he's in trouble unelss he finds some wings and takes archery lessons. Laura, while out on her errand, heads by the soccer field. Travis is there and so is the new guy, Roberto. Roberto's all energized. Travis tells him to relax, as soccer practice is over. Roberto, however, says that he's just getting started. Laura comes up and Roberto comments about her "rat." She says that he's not a rat, he's a hamster. Hamtaro says "hamha" to him - he remembers him from the last time they met. Laura thinks that Roberto is so rude. She's upset that she missed Travis. Hamtaro calls the "cupid business" a big responsibility. He decides to go after Travis and try to find him. He escapes from Laura. Laura tells him to come back. Hamtaro goes on ahead anyway, then comes back and leads Laura to Travis. But Laura trips and when Travis asks what she's doing, she says that she's "working on some new dance moves." She runs off, saying it's the "flight of the hamster." Hamtaro complains that instead of helping, he only made Laura feel awful. He says that he'd do anything to repair the damage. Maxwell comes up with a plan. They'll get Laura's handkerchief and use it to lead her to Travis. They get the handkerchief, but thigns go terribly wrong when they get to the school. Hamtaro drops it and Roberto finds it and picks it up. He sees that it's Laura's and goes to return it to her. But when he tries to talk to Laura, Laura is rude with him again. So Roberto decides to hold on off on giving it to her, since he can't seem to get her to talk to him. He gives it Travis to give back to Laura. Travis gives it back to her, telling her about Roberto. He says that Roberto may seem rude, but he's really kind of a nice guy if you actually get to know him. Kana notes that Roberto was wearing what she predicted would be Laura's lucky color: "blue." Laura shoots back that her lucky color has nothing to do with Roberto. Later on, Laura takes Brandy for a walk. Hamtaro's still trying to salvage the Travis situation. Laura goes by the soccer field and sees that there's no practice. So she won't be seeing Travis there. Then, Hamtaro spots Travis. He attracts Brandy's attention and Brandy breaks free of Laura and heads for Travis. Travis sees and stops Brandy, not wanting him to get hurt. He asks Laura if Brandy is her dog. He says that he loves dogs. He's always wanted one like Brandy. As he and Laura walk towards the sunset, talkking of dogs and more, the ham-hams look on. Oxnard says that it looks like Laura is in seventh heaven. That night, Laura reflects on the day. She says that Brandy made a great Cupid. Hamtaro grumbles about Brandy getting all the credit.moreless
