Episode Summary

Proud as a Peacock / Dances With Flamingos
Proud as a Peacock: Stanley is disappointed one day when it seems like his family and friends all have special talents to demonstrate, but he has nothing. He takes solace in his animal friends, sure that animals never show off. Dennis, however, shows him that the peacock is quite the show-off of the animal world. Dances With Flamingos: Mimi is practicing for a performance for a ballet class, but is having trouble standing on one leg. Her friends all find it difficult as well and wonder just how anyone can do it. Realizing that flamingos spend much of their time standing on one leg, they decide to look up flamingos in The Great Big Book of Everything to find out just how this feat is accomplished.moreless

    • QUOTES (15)

      • Dennis: Today, we learned that flamingos strain their food out of water. Then they turn pink from their diet.
        Stanley: And we learned that if you hold your arms out like a flamingo sticks out its wings, it helps you balance so you can stand on one leg.
        Dennis: Yes. Now, if I only had any legs to stand on, I'd be all set.
        Stanley: Ha ha ha. Good night, Dennis.
        Dennis: Good night, flamingo boy Stanley.

      • Lester: Hey, he's got one leg curled way up underneath.
        Dennis: One reason is that it helps it keep warm, the same way you wrap your arms around yourself when you're cold.
        Marci: I can't believe they stand so still. From over here, they almost look like pink trees!
        Dennis: Very good, Marci! As a matter of fact, that's another reason why flamingos stand on one leg-- it makes them look like a tree. And that fools the small fish they're hunting.

      • Marci: Look at these baby flamingos!
        Lester: They're kinda cute, but they're funny looking, too. What's wrong with 'em?
        Mimi: Yeah, why aren't they all pink like their parents?
        Dennis: That's a very interesting question. Did you know the flamingo gets its color from the food it eats?

      • Harry and Elsie: (singing) No need to fall / Just stand up tall / We'll meet flamingos, one and all.
        Dennis: Well, I suppose it beats Row, Row, Row Your Boat.
        Harry: Did someone say Row, Row, Row Your Boat?
        Elsie: Well, I guess we could sing that, too. Ready, Harry?
        Harry and Elsie: (singing) Row, row, row your boat / Gently down the stream...
        Dennis: (as the two continue) No, please! Forget I said anything!

      • Dennis: Don't worry, Mimi. I'll bet you'll be standing on one leg in no time, just like a beautiful flamingo.
        Lester: I thought flamingos only had one leg!
        Marci: It looks that way because they always stand on one leg and keep the other one curled up... I think.

      • Mimi: I'm practicing ballet and this called a tutu.
        Lester: Is that because it's too, too puffy?
        Mimi: Very funny. My ballet class is doing a performance and I get to play a beautiful pink flamingo. See my new ballet shoes?

      • Stanley: Okay, ready or not, here I come! (leapfrogs Lester) Yippee!
        Marci: Stanley, we're playing frog and you're supposed to do something froggy every time you jump, remember?
        Stanley: Oh yeah. I forgot that part. Let me try it again. Ribbit! Ribbit!

      • Lester: You draw really good, Stanley.
        Marci: And you know so much about animals.
        Dennis: You should be very proud of yourself, Stanley.
        Stanley: I am. I'm proud... as a peacock.

      • Stanley: (whispering) Dennis, don't look now.
        Dennis: Okay, but don't look where?
        Stanley: Over there, at the peacock's feathers. They're staring at us with about a million eyes.
        Dennis: Those aren't eyes, Stanley. They're eyespots. They're strictly for decoration. And the more eyespots a peacock has, the more exciting a peahen thinks he is.

      • Stanley: Dennis, why is hair all done up like that?
        Dennis: That's called a crest and to a peacock it's all the rage.

      • Stanley: Everyone has something special to show off today. Except for me.
        Dennis: No!
        Stanley: Yes. Cartwheels, giggle hiccups, even comics.
        Harry: (yawns) Why don't you come curl up with us? We don't have anything special to show off.
        Elsie: Well, maybe some of us don't. Anyway, we promise not to show off if you don't want us to.

      • Dennis: Come on, Stanley. Let's head for India, where peacocks are so popular, they are the country's national bird.
        Stanley: 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. India, here we come!

      • Dennis: Peacocks are the biggest animal showoffs in the world. They're so showy, they even put on shows. In fact... why don't we catch the next performance. All we need is, uh--
        Harry and Elsie: (dressed up and on a stage, singing) It's The Great Big Book of Everything with everything inside / See the world around us, this book's the perfect guide!
        Dennis: There's no way that could be called showing off, now could it?

      • Lester: Hi, Stanley. Guess what.
        Stanley: Don't tell me. You have something special to show off.
        Lester: How'd you know? Listen to this. I just made it up. Ha-ha-ha-ha-hiccup! Ha-ha-ha-ha-hiccup!

      • Lionel: Hey, little bro. Want to hear the world's greatest guitarist play the world's greatest guitar riff?
        Stanley: Sure.
