What About Me?
The episode begins with Little Bill waking up and singing the Good Morning Song. He tells Elephant good morning. He tells Elephant that Big Bill is taking him to the park later today. Little Bill sees some robins outside his window in a nest. He tells the robins good morning and the robins chirp. He notes that there are three baby robins and he notes that there are three kids in his family: April, Bobby, and him. One of the baby robins tries to get out of the nest and Little Bill tells him to be careful so he doesn't fall. The robin gets back inside the nest with the others.
Big Bill comes in and asks Little Bill if he's ready to go to the park. Little Bill says that he is ready. Big Bill shows Little Bill April's basketball and tells Little Bill that April let them borrow it for a little while when they go to the park. Little Bill hopes that he is as good at basketball one day as April is. Little Bill pretends that he is dribbling a basketball. He pretends to shoot the basketball and he scores, making the fans cheer. Big Bill asks Little Bill if he's ready to go to the park. Little Bill runs out, but then runs back inside to get his hat. Big Bill asks if he's ready for one on one basketball. Little Bill says that he's going to win. Big Bill chuckles.
Little Bill and Big Bill walk down the hall when April calls for Big Bill to come into her room. Big Bill tells Little Bill that they should see what April needs first before they leave. April tells Big Bill that she's trying to print her homework, but the printer isn't working. Big Bill looks at the printer and notes that there's a paper jam in the printer. Little Bill asks Big Bill about the park. April tells her that this is more important than the park. Big Bill promises that this will only take a minute. He starts to work on something, but then the computer screen turns off. April yells and asks Big Bill what he did. Big Bill asks what happened. April tells him that the computer screen turned off. Little Bill asks if they can leave now. April tells Little Bill again that this is more important. Little Bill notes that Big Bill is supposed to take him to the park. Big Bill notes that this is an important homework assignment for April and he needs a few minutes to look at the computer. Little Bill asks them what he is supposed to do for a few more minutes. Big Bill suggests to Little Bill that he go downstairs to see if Brenda is done fixing Bobby's bike yet. Little Bill agrees and heads downstairs.
Little Bill walks downstairs to the basement to find Brenda and Bobby fixing Bobby's bike. Little Bill asks Brenda if she wants to go to the park with him to play basketball. Brenda says that they'll go to the park as soon as they're done fixing Bobby's bike. Little Bill asks how long that will be. Brenda doesn't think it will be much longer. Little Bill asks if it'll only be a few more minutes. Brenda thinks it might take more than just a few minutes. Little Bill is disappointed. Bobby asks Brenda how she learned how to fix bikes. Brenda notes that she had to learn because the only thing Big Bill can fix is a sandwich. Little Bill asks Brenda if she can fix the bike later. Bobby notes that this is very important. He notes that if he doesn't have any brakes then he can't ride his bike. Little Bill asks what he's supposed to do. Brenda asks Little Bill what Big Bill is doing. Little Bill says that he is helping April fix the computer. Brenda thinks that he might be done soon. Little Bill doesn't think that he's going to make it to the park today. Brenda asks Little Bill if he can go make her a beautiful picture and then they'll all be ready to go. Little Bill agrees and gives Brenda a kiss on the cheek. She and Bobby go back to fixing the bike.
Little Bill walks back into April's room. April thanks Big Bill for fixing the computer. Little Bill asks if the computer is really fixed now. Big Bill says it is and he knew it would only take a few minutes. Little Bill is glad and says that they can go to the park now. Big Bill tells April to click to print when she's ready. Little Bill and Big Bill walk downstairs saying that they are going to the park. Just before they walk out the door, April yells down to Big Bill and notes that the computer isn't working again. Big Bill tells Little Bill he'll be back in a few minutes.
Little Bill is very upset and walks upstairs with Big Bill. Little Bill asks Big Bill how long this will take. Big Bill notes that this might take longer than he thought. Little Bill asks what he's supposed to do. Big Bill tells Little Bill that there are some days that just don't turn out like they planned. Big Bill promises that they will head out to the park as soon as he's done with the computer.
Little Bill goes to his room to color a picture for Brenda. Little Bill tells Elephant that it isn't fair and thinks that his parents think that April and Bobby are more important than he is. He doesn't feel that he is important. Little Bill imagines that if he was a teacher he would be so important he would be able to take the whole class to the park. Little Bill then imagines that he was a fireman that could keep people safe. Little Bill then says that if he was a space explorer like Captain Brainstorm he would be very important. He wishes that he was important.
Big Bill comes into the room and notes that Little Bill did a good job on the drawings. He asks Little Bill if he's ready to go to the park now. Little Bill says that he doesn't want to go to the park anymore. Big Bill asks why not. Little Bill says it's because he isn't important. Big Bill insists that he is and tells him to come sit down. Big Bill tells Little Bill that he, Bobby, and April are very important to him and Brenda. Little Bill thinks that Bobby and April are important, but he isn't. Big Bill notes that when there's more than one person in the family sometimes things come up that have to be dealt with right away. Little Bill realizes that April needed the computer fixed so that she could print her homework. He also realizes that Bobby's brakes needed fixed so he could ride his bike. Big Bill says that he needed Brenda to help him fix it. Little Bill notes that Brenda had to fix it because the only thing Big Bill can fix is a sandwich. Big Bill laughs. He tells Little Bill that he is important. Little Bill understands and tells Big Bill that he loves him. Big Bill says the same.
Just then, they hear April calling for them again. Little Bill thinks that there is a problem with the computer again. However, April isn't in her room. Big Bill and Little Bill come downstairs to find that April is ready with her kite and Bobby is ready with his bike. They are ready to go to the park. Bobby says that they are going to the park with them. Brenda says that they should head out. Little Bill runs upstairs to get his hat and picks it up. Little Bill tells Elephant that he'll see them later. He tells the baby robins goodbye as well. Just then, he sees one of the baby robins fall out of the tree. He runs downstairs and says that there's an emergency. He says that the baby robin fell out of the nest. Little Bill tells the family that the baby robin fell out of the nest and they need to put him back inside. Big Bill tells Little Bill not to touch the robin and insists he'll be right back with the ladder. The family hopes that the robin isn't hurt. Little Bill notes it's a good thing that he was here.
Big Bill puts the robin back inside the nest. Little Bill asks Big Bill if the robin is alright. Big Bill says that the robin will be alright. Big Bill notes that what Little Bill did was very important. April and Bobby agree and tell Little Bill that he did a very important thing. The family is finally ready to go to the park. Little Bill tells the baby robins that he's glad that they are safe. The episode ends with the family heading outside to go to the park.

He opens up a gift and inside is April's trophy. He starts to cheer.
Little Bill is snapped out of his imagination by Alice the Great telling Little Bill to be careful with April's trophy. Little Bill says that they should throw April a birthday party. Alice the Great notes that it isn't April's birthday. Little Bill says that they should throw her a not-birthday party. Alice the Great laughs and says it's a wonderful idea. Little Bill runs into the room and tells Bobby that they are going to have a not-birthday party for April. Bobby is confused. Little Bill says that it is a party that will hopefully cheer April up.
