Episode Summary

EDIT
Keeping Promises
AIRED:
It all opens with shots of Laura and Kana's faces. They're angry faces. Very angry faces. Something has happened between them and they're really mad at each other. Laura arrives at her house where she announces to Hamtaro that Kana accused her of breaking a promise, right to her face. Hamtaro's sleepy, apparently he overslept. But he's awake enough to realize something is very wrong. As Laura heads downstairs, Oxnard comes in and says that Laura and Kanas' friendship is over. Hamtaro wonders what's going on and what they could possibly be fighting about. The two decide to head over to Kana's house, where they find her in the same sad state as Laura. She basically just plopped down on her bed, without even taking off her backpack. She states unhappily that she just lost her best friend. Hamtaro thinks that it must just be a misunderstanding. He can't imagine Laura purposely doing something to hurt Kana. Then, the two begin to worry that if they don't do something about this, it could spill over into their friendship. They might start choosing sides and it could get ugly. They have to stop it. Hamtaro then realizes that he has something important he's supposed to be doing. He tries to leave, but Oxnard says that Hamtaro can't leave him now. He doesn't know what to do. So Hamtaro agrees to stay. Meanwhile, Boss is at Bijou's, wondering where Hamtaro is. Hamtaro was supposed to come and help him clean up leaves at Bijou's. Boss is starting to get irritated, but says to Bijou that he can clean up after her by himself. Bijou, however, insists on helping and ends up slipping and falling off a tree branch. The scene cuts away to Laura's, where Laura is fixing herself a snack. She says that she always gets hungry when she's angry. She blurts out to her Mom about what's happened with Kana. Laura's Mom says to just let Kana sleep on it and they'll make it. But Laura thinks that it's too late and it's all over. Back at Oxnard's, Hamtaro and Oxnard are trying to figure out how to help Laura and Kana. Hamtaro thinks that they need the help of someone older and wiser, someone like Boss. Then he remembers that he was supposed to be helping boss at Bijou's. At the clubhouse, Boss is ranting and raving about how he'll never forgive Hamtaro for what happened to Bijou. Hamtaro and Oxnard arrive just in the middle of Boss's rant and he gives Hamtaro the third degree about how Bijou fell off a branch. He says that fell screaming with fright and that he and Hamtaro made a promise between guys and Hamtaro broke it. As Hamtaro goes to check on Bijou, we see the actual events in a short flashback sequence. Bijou did fall, but some leaves cushioned the blow and so she was okay. The ham-hams all criticize Boss for being too hard on Hamtaro. Howdy cracks some bad jokes about Hamtaro "falling" for Boss's deception. Still, Boss thinks that Hamtaro should "squirm" for a while because he deserves it. That evening, at Laura's, Laura is wrestlin with her being upset at Kana. She doesn't understand what could have happened. She didn't tell anyone Kana's secret - that Kana is worried that people think she's too scrawny and have been making fun of her. Hamtaro, in his cage, hopes that Bijou is okay. The next day at school, Kana has a talk with Kylie and June. She learns that the supposed conversation in which Laura told her secret never happened. Instead, Laura was actually talking with them about cooking. June remembers the conversation and tells Kana that's all they were talking about. Kana realizes she's made a big mistake. Meanwhile, Hamtaro and Oxnard are at Bijou's, cleaning up after Bijou. It's exhausting work, especially with the fervor at which they're doing it. But Hamtaro still thinks Bijou is hurt and so he'll do anything to help her out and Oxnard is more than willing to join him. Later that day, Hamtaro is back at home and very exhausted. He doesn't even perk up when Laura calls him, so Laura decides to take him to Doctor Lion. She takes him to the Vetmobile, where Kana is there waited for Oxnard, who's in the same condition as Hamtaro, to be checked out. Panda sees the two there and reports the news back to the clubhouse. At the Vetmobile, Hamtaro and Oxnard decide that it's "showtime." They take off, causing Laura and Kana to bump into each and fall down as they try to head off after them. The two start laughing and Kana apologizes to Laura. She realizes now that the whole thing was just a big mistake. The two make up and are friends again. Doctor Lion sees Hamtaro and Oxnards and pronounces them okay. He says that they just need sleep. Later, Boss apologizes to Hamtaro for letting him think that Bijou was injured. That night, Laura reflects on the day's events in her journal. She tries to get some acknowledgement from Hamtaro, but Hamtaro is way too tired to respond.moreless
