Episode Summary

EDIT
The Animal Hospital
AIRED:
Laura and Kana are out walking when they come across Maria. She has Bijou in her carrying. But it seems Bijou is sick - she keeps sneezing like crazy. Maria says that she's going to take her to the vet. They talk about this. Neither Hamtaro or Oxnard have ever needed to go to the vet before? Perhaps they should both have checkups? Laura and Kana decide to go with Maria. They'll ask about it while they're there. The ham-hams are watching the whole time. They hope that Bijou would be all right. Then, the scene changes to the clubhouse, where Boss is giving Oxnard the third degree. He told Boss about Bijou's going to the vet and Boss somehow got the idea that he was responsible. It takes the entire ham-ham gang to calm him down and tell him that it's not Oxnard's fault. Then, they talk about the vet. But this only scares boss even more, when they start talking about medicine and needles. Seeing that they've spooked him, they try to convince him that the vet is only going to heal, Bijou, but he takes off, hoping to save her. The ham-hams want to follow him, but they realize they have a problem: they don't know where this clinic is anyway. They finally figure it out and take off. They've gotta catch up to Boss. Then, the scene changes to Boss, out on the street. Suddenly, he realizes he doesn't have any idea where the clinic is either. The rest of the gang reaches the clinic, which they identify by its sign. They head inside, where they find Maria, Laura and Kana in a waiting room. Finally, Maria's told that's her turn. She's taken into the office, where she meets the very pretty, but very strange, vet. This vet seems very dedicated to her practice and also acts as if she has psychic abilities in diagnosing Bijou's illness. She promises to take care of it, but then she's called away on a "Code 27" emergency. Meanwhile, the ham-hams are inside, checking things out. They assess the equipment, which Maxwell deems to be state-of-the-art. But then Boss shows up. Unnoticed, he unlatches Bijou's carrier and takes off with her. The ham-hams finally see what he's doing. The ham-hams take off for him to stop, but he refuses. He looks for someplace to hide. Finally, the vet arrives back. But now there's a calamity: Bijou's not in her cage! The odd-mannered vet promises to find her, even if it costs her life. As the humans search, the ham-hams are on a desperate quest to catch Boss. They catch up to him and try to reason with him. They tell him that even needles aren't bad and they show him one. But that only makes Boss even more scared. Eventually, Boss decides to take Bijou "somewhere safe." The safe place is the clubhouse, but the ham-hams all follow him there and demand that he stop what he's doing. They apologize for getting him all scared and reinforce that the vet just wants to heal Bijou. Boss finally relents and Bijou is taken back to the clinic. The ham-hams hide just in time and the humans see Bijou in front of her cage. The vet, though, seems to have heard the hamsters, although she doesn't say anything. She then does this strange "prepare to operate" routine and then gives Bijou some medicine. It works quickly and the vet says she's out of danger. Later, in the clubhouse, Boss appears to be rather down. The ham-hams wonder if he caught Bijou's flu. But Boss explains that he just feels bad that he possibily put Bijou in danger. Bijou tells him not to feel bad. She knows he was just trying to help her. Boss gives her a present: a nicely wrapped sunflower seed. Boss says that he also gave the vet a present. At the clinic, the vet's assistant shows the vet some sunflower seeds he found. He wonders if he should get the background. That night, Laura reflects on how good the vet was at healing Bijou. Perhaps sometime she'll take Hamtaro in for a checkup.moreless
