But who are his real friends -- the big bike kids, or the Rugrats? Where's Grandpa?: The adults accidentally left Grandpa behind at a gas station while trying to take home an easily-perishable banana tree they purchased from a nursery about 3 hours from home. Grandpa unwittingly hitches a ride with strangers, but everyone ends up at a cheesy, Canadian-themed tourist stop called "North Of The Border" ("Where You Can Go To Canada Without Crossing The Border"). Tommy & Chuckie try to reunite Grandpa with Stu & Didi, but there's one slight problem -- Grandpa thinks he's in Canada -- with no ID (Tommy threw his wallet out the car window).moreless

    The First Cut: Tommy gets hurt while rescuing a baby bird. To help his cut heal, Didi placed a Reptar bandage over it. After Phil & Lil noticed this, they try to get hurt too, so they can get Reptar wrapped around their fingers. Meanwhile, Angelica steps in, telling Tommy that he'll have to go to the hospital to sew him up so he won't get a "reflection" (infection) and get "tangerine" (gangrene). After that, Tommy refuses to have any fun, so he won't get hurt. Chuckie Grows: It seems like it when Grandpa accidentally shrinks Chuckie's clothes in the wash, after Chuckie got dirty. Afterwards, Angelica decides to play off Chuckie by thinking that he's a giant and that he'll squash Angelica, the Rugrats and the grown-ups. In the end, this action costs Cynthia her right to have cappuccino; her miniature cappuccino machine was brought over so Stu can fix it.moreless
  • Fugitive Tommy: Gabriel Lasky, a.k.a. "The One-Toothed Baby", pops one of the McNulty kids' balls by biting it; however, the McNultys placed the blame on another baby with one-tooth -- Tommy. As they cart Tommy up a hill for Tommy's punishment, Tommy escapes, leading to a manhunt, with the McNultys finding Tommy, and Tommy finding Gabriel. But will the McNultys learn the real story? And will they believe Tommy? While all this happens, Gabriel's grandpa cheats while playing chess with Tommy's grandpa. Not a Quinn-Martin production. Visiting Aunt Miriam: Aunt Miriam is back; this time, we're visiting her place, as she, Grandpa, and her friends play poker. The Rugrats become scared of the old ladies when one of them jokingly commented that Chuckie was good enough to eat, and when Miriam recruited Chuckie to become her "helper" (which was genuine, but the Rugrats felt different).moreless
  • He Saw, She Saw: At a local park, where Stu & Didi took the Rugrats, Chuckie falls in love again, this time for a girl named Emma, and this time, something else gets in the way of their romance -- her big, 3-year-old brother, "Big Binky", who wants to distance Chuckie as far aways as possible from Emma. Knowing the problem, the Rugrats help Chuckie out by pestering Big Binky. Piggy's Pizza Palace: The Rugrats wander around a "Chuck E. Cheese"-type pizza restaurant after Piggy inadvertently stolen the game tickets that Angelica had won. Meanwhile, Stu & Drew try to outwit each other playing a Reptar pinball game.moreless

Johnathan Babysits: Jonathan babysits the Rugrats at Charlotte's house while she's on assignment, but uses this opportunity to look for Charlotte's tape so he could "dig up dirt" on Charlotte for blackmailing purposes.
