Episode Summary

A Day At The Beach: The Glovers go to the beach for a day off, and while Big Bill just wants to relax, the children want him to join in with them and have some fun. They go swimming, play games, build sand castles, and go exploring for shells. As Big Bill lies down to finally try to relax, Little Bill suggests to his siblings that they bury their father in the sand. Although he pretends to protest, Big Bill actually enjoys not having to worry about moving and falls asleep while everybody else has lunch. Little Bill asks Brenda why Big Bill doesn't want to play, and she explains that his father is tired from the long drive to the beach and all the things he did for everybody else. When he realizes how much he appreciates all the things Big Bill does without being asked, Little Bill goes over to where Big Bill is lying and offers to read to him so they can relax together. The Get Well Song: Big Bill catches a cold and has to stay home from work. Little Bill volunteers to take care of him, but Bill and Brenda insist he go to school so he doesn't get sick, too. At school, Little Bill can't concentrate because he's worried about Big Bill; Fuschia, Andrew and Kiku suggest they make a Get Well card for Mr. Bill, like they did when Little Bill had Chicken Pox, to cheer him up. During music time, the children make up a Get Well Song that Miss Murray records so Little Bill will have a copy to bring home. When Little Bill comes home from school and gives Big Bill the card and the tape, his father says the thing that made him feel better was having Little Bill do all these nice things for him.moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

      • When the kids start to draw the card, they each have a different color crayon; Kiku has yellow, Andrew has green, Bill is using purple, and Fuschia has red, yet when Bill shows Miss Murray the finished card, everything is drawn in blue, a color they weren't even using?

      • (The children make up The Get Well Song)
        Little Bill: Get better, get better, I hope you wear a sweater. We can play outside together, in the sunny, sunny weather.
        Kiku: We can play in the sun, in the sun, in the sun, in the sun...
        Fuschia: And if you need a nap, just put your head down, and in a little while, you'll feel much better!
        Andrew: Get better, Mr. Bill, Bill, Bill. Get better, Mr. Bill, Bill, Bill. Get better, Mr. Bill, Bill, Bill. And I will build a rocket ship to fly away, way, way.
