Of course, Jeff falls asleep at the end of the song. Sam says on the count of three, we'll wake him up. Anthony has a soccer ball and says when Jeff wakes, he'll head the ball into the audience and cheer for the World Cup team. He hands Jeff the soccer ball, and everyone counts, "1, 2, 3, Wake Up Jeff!" Jeff wakes up, thanks everyone, and declares, "We're gonna win the next World Cup!" He then does a header on the soccer ball.

Anthony says he's hungry, as an inflatable mat is brought out. Then Ringo the Ringmaster comes out and sings about getting hot popcorn. Anthony asks the audience if you'd like some hot poppin' popcorn? The audience affirms. Ringo says the popcorn is just around the corn-er.

Anthony asks Wags if he'd like to say something special. Wags does. Anthony asks if everyone understood that; he said "Happy Australia Day". Everyone says "Happy Australia Day, Wags" and wave him goodbye.

Anthony remarks that Sam is dressed in his favorite kind of fruit. What could it be? It's watermelon. Jeff is coming out in his favorite fruit: It's round, red, it's crunchy. Is it an apple? Yes, it's an apple. Anthony comes out in a blueberry outfit and a guitar and sunglasses, saying you may think I'm a blueberry, but for Australia Day, he wants to be a (plays guitar) blues-berry. Murray comes out in a banana outfit. Anthony introduces their special guest, the international, meteorological superstar, from The Today Show in America, Al Roker! Al comes out in a grapes outfit.

Anthony hides his head in his blueberry outfit and waves his arms around as Jeff plays snake charm music song on his keytar. Anthony stands up and makes his way to the mattress, he then pops his head out.

Anthony and Captain Feathersword are on stage now. Anthony tells Captain to deliver a special Australia Day message. Captain says "Happy Australia …" but then he screams DAY really loudly that Anthony falls backwards. Anthony asks him to say it again: "Happy Australia Day" with a more daintly gentle arm flowing gesture. Captain does the arm gesture and says, "Happy Australia… (he starts cracking up) DAY!" Anthony falls backwards again. Anthony tells Captain to try to settle down and peaceful. He tells Captain to picture a bird, and he flaps his arms to say the phrase. Captain will try that. He starts flapping his arms like a bird. He says "Happy Australia" in a high pitch voice, twice, and then barks "DAY!" at Anthony, 'causing him to fall again. Anthony says they'll try one more time, this time with a whisper, but Anthony does some funny dancing while saying "Happy Australia Day". Captain cracks up again but he attempts to imitate Anthony. Captain says "Happy Australia…" and then dances around behind Anthony, but still barks "DAY!" so Anthony falls again. Murray joins the group asking what's going on. Anthony explains that Captain screams at the end of "Happy Australia Day". Murray tells Captain he should say it quietly and gently. Murray demonstrates. "Happy Australia….DAY!!!" He screams DAY louder than Captain ever did, that Captain and Anthony both fall over.
