Episode Summary

Daddy Pride / Show-and-Tell Shark
Daddy Pride: Stanley is upset that his Daddy often has to stop playing with him to go to work. He decides that maybe he should get an animal to be his Daddy -- perhaps a lion. Worried that this may not be the best idea, Dennis urges him to consult The Great Big Book of Everything. Stanley learns that when it comes to lions, playing is serious business, and a lion may not be well-suited to be his father. Show-and-Tell Shark: Stanley has an assignment to bring a really cool animal to show off at show-and-tell. Dennis is excited by the project, until he hears some of Stanley's wild ideas of what he's going to bring. He considers a Tyrannosaurus Rex and an elephant before finally decided on a shark. Stanley, learns, however, that he's neither well-equipped to care for a shark, nor are sharks really the right temperament for animal to bring to school.moreless

      • Stanley: Goldfish rule!
        Dennis: You do, too, shark-boy Stanley. Good night, now.

      • Stanley: My favorite animal in the whole wide world. That's you, Dennis.

      • Dennis: A shark school isn't like your school. They don't eat lunch in the cafeteria.

      • Stanley: I think I'll take the Great White Shark to school, 'cause it's the coolest.
        Dennis: If you say so, Stanley. However, the shark needs a whole big ocean full of seawater to swim in. Or at least a tank as big as your house.

      • Stanley: Nobody else in my school has a shark.
        Dennis: I think there might be a reason for that, Stanley.

      • Stanley: I know, I'll bring a shark.
        Dennis: A what!?

      • Stanley: What am I gonna do, Dennis? I've gotta bring a supercool animal and it can't be extinct and it can't be too big.

      • Dennis: Can you think of someone Stanley can bring to school?

      • Stanley: You know what would be great?
        Dennis: Something orange?
        Stanley: A Tyrannosaurus Rex!

      • Stanley: Uh oh! (gasps) Dennis, wake up!
        Dennis: Oh my goodness, Stanley. It's too early to wake up. Why, it's hardly light. Go back to sleep now.
        Stanley: I can't, Dennis! Today's the day I'm supposed to bring my favorite animal to school for show-and-tell.

      • Stanley: You're the king of the fishbowl.
        Dennis: Roar roar.
        Stanley: Good night, Dennis.
        Dennis: Good night, little lion cub.

      • Dennis: Next time you open The Great Big Book of Everything to the letter "L," why don't you try a lamb instead?

      • Stanley: Give him a timeout, Daddy.
        Daddy Lion: (yawns widely)
        Stanley: I don't believe it. My Daddy would ground Lionel for a week if he tried anything like--

      • Dennis: Congratulations. You have five brothers.
        Stanley: Oh no. And I thought it was hard sharing with one brother.

      • Dennis: Happy birthday, Stanley. You've just been born into a lion family on the African savannah.
        Stanley: Savannah? I thought lions lived in the jungle.
        Dennis: No, the lion isn't really the king of the jungle, Stanley. It's the king of the savannah. Which means the plains where the tall grass grows.

      • Stanley: (pointing to a picture of a lion) There's my new Daddy.
        Dennis: He sure looks big.

      • Dennis: Lions may be in the same family as house cats, Stanley, but they're not pussycats. And before you go trading for a lion daddy, I think we need to learn a little more about them.

      • Stanley: I'm gonna get a real lion to be my Daddy.
        Dennis: Uh-oh. That could be big trouble.

      • Dennis: Ladies and gentlemen, let's have a big round of applause for the king of the jungle.
        Harry: King of the jungle? Well, that's like a lion, right? Well, stay cool, dudes. Don't freak!

      • Mr. Griff: We can play more later.
        Stanley: No play later. Play now.

      • Elsie: What happened to playing lion with Daddy?
        Stanley: He went in the study and closed his door. That means he has to work.
        Harry: (gasps) He closed the door? (starts hopping up and down) Oh, goody! Time to chew on the living room couch! (sounds of chewing from next room)
        Stanley: I hate it when Daddy has to stop playing with me.
