(Tommy, Angelica, and Chuckie are in Mrs. Pickle's car at Tommy's house, waiting to be taken to see a Dummi Bears concert. Tommy's dog is trying to get into the car. In the background, the Dummi Bears theme song plays, repeating over and over the lyrics "Sing a happy happy happy happy happy happy song.")
Tommy: Poor Spike! He wants to go to the Dummi Bears concert too.
Chuckie: (laughing) This is going to be the "bestest" show ever Tommy. Do you think Jelly Bear will be there? I hope so. Maybe we can get a poster or, or a picture. Maybe I'll even get to meet Jelly Bear. Oh my gosh. What would I say to him? I hope he sings this song. (starts singing) "Happy happy happy happy happy -"
(Angelica stops him by shoving a blanket in his mouth)
Angelica: Hey, you're wrecking the song!
Charlotte: (on the phone to her assistant) Jonathan, I'm going to a Dummi Bears concert. Don't complain to me about your day.
Didi: Thanks for taking the kids, Charlotte. I would have, but the cheese festival only comes once a year, and this year's theme is Camombaire, and you know how Stu always-
Charlotte: It's no problem Didi.
Didi: Are you sure you're going to be all right? You seem so busy.
Charlotte: I've got everything under control.
(the dog jumps into the car without anyone noticing, and Charlotte closes the back hatch and gets into the car)
Charlotte: Uh, that eternal noise. (turns off the music) Say goodbye to Mommy!
Jonathan: (on the phone) Goodbye Mommy.
Charlotte: No, not you Jonathan. Now patch me through to Wetherbee's office.
(while driving in town, the truck in front of her keeps swerving)
Charlotte: (to the truck) Will you please choose a lane! (into the phone) I know Lloyd, but right now I've got a car full of Dummi Bears and I'm on my way to a babies concert. Scratch that. I've got a car full of - Oh never mind.
(Spike appears and licks Tommy's face in the back seat)
Tommy: (laughing) Hey, Spike does get to go to the Dummi Bears.
Angelica: He's not supposed to be here. He must have "snucked" in when we picked you babies up.
Tommy: Oh, which one is your favorite Dummi Bear Spike?
Charlotte: (thinks Angelica made the noise since she doesn't realize the dog is in the car, hands a tissue to Angelica) Cover your mouth sweetheart. (back on the phone) Trust me Lloyd. I'll be there in three hours maximum.
(a can of olive oil falls off the truck; the car runs over it and gets a flat tire; Charlotte pulls it to the side of the street)
Tommy: What was that?
Charlotte: (still on the phone) Or maybe four hours.
Chuckie: Uh, eh, it was scary. It sounded like the car burped.
Angelica: It didn't burp. It "broked."
Charlotte: Don't worry kids. Everything is fine. I'll be right back. (gets out of car and notices the flat tire and gasps; calls Lloyd again on her cellular phone) Lloyd, I'll call you in twenty.
(makes another call)
Chuckie: Oh, do you think we're going to miss the Dummi Bears concert?
Angelica: Of course now. My mommy will call somebody to fix it and we'll be out of here real soon.
Charlotte: (still on the phone) What do you mean, two hours! Arghghg! Well, I've leveraged a hostile take over while reorganizing subordinated debt. I suppose I can change a tire.
(she opens the car latch and searches for a jack)
Charlotte: Huh, no jack. (gets into the front seat) You kids be patient. There's just a little problem with the car.
Angelica: But Mommy. We're going to miss the very very beginning of the show, and that's my very "favoretist" part.
Charlotte: I know sweetheart, but Mommy can't do anything without a jack. Here, thumb through these stock offerings. It shouldn't be too long.
(hands Angelica some papers; then back on the phone)
Phone Voice: Hello.
Charlotte: Yeah, Lloyd. It's me again.
Chuckie: Who's Jack?
Angelica: He's the person that fixes car. Do I have to teach you everything.
Chuckie: There must be a bazillion people out there. I wonder which one is Jack?
Tommy: (getting out of his seat) Well, we're just going to have to find him, or we'll never get to the show.
Chuckie: But, uh, maybe we should wait you guys. Angelica' s mommy said it wouldn't be too long.
Angelica: That's what grownups always say when it's gonna to take forever. Don't you want to see the Dummi Bears live on stage and the final "daformance" of their laser "spangtacular."
Chuckie: I guess you're right.
Tommy: Atta boy Chuckie!
Angelica: Of course I'm right. Now give me that blankie.
Chuckie: (sighs) Oh.
(Chuckie gives her his blanket; she ties it to her seat and lowers it out the car window; the kids climb down it)
Charlotte: (still on the phone) I'm taking numbers, syntax, and context. Oh, and another thing Lloyd -
Tommy: (to dog) You stay there Spike. We'll be right back. Well, I guess we'll have to search the whole world. So let's start here. (kids go into Montello's restaurant; musician singing and playing the accordion) We'll go over here Angelica.
(Tommy and Chuckie leave Angelica, and she bumps into the host)
Host: Can I help you?
Angelica: I'm looking for Jack.
Host: Who's asking?
Angelica: Hey, didn't you see my mouth move.
Host: Jack is not available at this particular moment.
(Tommy and Chuckie peek behind a chair)
Tommy: Wow, Jack is here!
Host: Hey, should you not be with your mommy, little girl?
Angelica: Listen, mister. I need Jack and I need him now.
Waiter: Hey Vinnie. Ain't that Jack's kid?
(they look at a photo on the wall, in which Jack's kid looks a lot like Angelica)
Host: Oh, oh, oh. My utmost apologies Miss Montello. I did not realize you was Jack's kid.
Angelica: (playing along) Right, that's exactly who I am. Now get me Jack. I mean Daddy.
Host: Just a second. Tony, keep an eye on her.
Chuckie: How come Angelica didn't tell us her daddy was Jack?
Tommy: Oh, I think she is just pretending.
(host goes in back to Jack's office; knocks on the door)
Jack: (voice only) This had better be important 'cause I told you not to bother me.
Host: (opens the door) I think it is important boss.
Jack: You think it's important. 'Cause if it is something you cannot handle, maybe I gotta get someone who can.
Host: Oh, oh, no, no, no boss. We can handle it. I, I'm sorry I even knocked on your door. My sincerest apologies to you and yours.
(closes the door)
(Host goes back to Angelica)
Accordion Player: (Singing) Those pesky dogs always wake me up in the morning.
Host: The boss, I, I mean your daddy, he is not available right now.
Angelica: But I need him.
Host: I know, but you see, he is busy.
Angelica: I don't care if he is busy.
Waiter: Hey, how about we get you something to eat while you wait. I nice spumoni, perhaps?
Angelica: I don't want balogna. I want Jack.
Waiter: Not a balogna. A ice cream. Do you like ice cream.
Angelica: Oh, um, what kinds do you have?
Tommy: (peering with Chuckie from behind a chair) Oh, come on Chuckie.
(Tommy and Chuckie go to the back of the restaurant)
Tommy: He must be this way.
Chuckie: Oh, I wish I, I wish Jelly Bear was here.
(back to Charlotte still on the phone in her car)
Charlotte: You know Lloyd, that mink farm might be a good investment. Well, no, personally I'm not that fond of animals.
(the dog whines)
Charlotte: (thinking it is the kids) Oh not now kids. (gives the dog a scone without looking at it) Here, have another scone and be quiet.
Phone Voice: Hey, you can't say that to me.
Charlotte: Not you Lloyd.
(Tommy and Chuckie are still exploring the back rooms)
Chuckie: Well, no Jack here. Hey, I got an idea. Let's go back to the car and hide.
Tommy: We can't stop now Chuckie. We got to get the car fixed and get to the Dummi Bear concert. You see if Jack's in there and I'll check over here.
(Chuckie opens a door; raw meat is hanging in it; closes it and pants)
Tommy: Is Jack in there?
Chuckie: Nope, nothing in here.
(Tommy opens another door)
Chuckie: Oh, this is just a potty. (they get to Jack's office) Hey, do you think he's in there.
(Tommy climbs on Chuckie's back to reach the door knob)
Tommy: I don't-
Host: (grabs the kids) Hey, where did you two come from? Get away from that door kiddies. Let's go find your mommy and daddy.
Accordion Player: (singing back in the main restaurant) If you want to come back -
(Angelica is now sitting at a table, eating a huge bowl of spaghetti with some cheese)
Angelica: Hmph, I need more cheese. How am I supposed to eat this without more cheese?
Host: Just one moment Miss Montello. I just need to get these babi-
Angelica: No, now. Or Daddy's going to hear about this.
Host: Right, right. Of course, Miss Montello.
(leaves Chuckie and Tommy near Angelica, who is still eating)
Tommy: We couldn't find Jack, Angelica.
Chuckie: Now we'll never see the show.
Angelica: You babies are always griping about something. Hey you. Get over here
(to the accordion player)
Accordion Player: Yes, Miss Montello. Uh, what could I play for you?
Angelica: Do you know the Dummi Bears song?
Accordion Player: Hah, but of course. (starts singing) Sing a happy happy happy happy happy happy song.
Angelica: See, just as good.
Tommy: But Angelica, I wanted to see the real Dummi Bears and that means we got to find Jack.
Angelica: Jack schmack. I've got everything I need right here. Hey waiter, more cherry soda.
Tommy: But Angelica-
(Jack appears and grabs one of Angelica's breadsticks)
Jack: Well, here's a little trio that's getting some special treatment.
(he eats some of the stick)
Angelica: Hey, buster. That's mine. Get your greasy paws off it.
Jack: Well, we certainly have a mouth on us.
Angelica: Yeah, well who let you into this smelly place.
Jack: I own this smelly place. I'm Jack.
Angelica: Umm, Mr. Daddy sir. It's me, your little butter cup?
Jack: What's going on here.
Host: Uh, it's your daughter, Gianna.
Jack: That's not my Gianna.
Angelica: Come on, I was only joking.
Host: What should we go with her boss.
Jack: Leave her, if she talked you goons out of all this stuff, she's got to have spunk.
Angelica: I got spunk? Is that good?
Host: What's your name little girl?
Angelica: Angelica Pickles.
Host: Angie? What could be bad about a girl named Angie? So, where is your mommy Angie?
Angelica: She's right out front. We just came in here to ask you to fix our car so we can get to the Dummi Bears concert.
Host: Dummi Bears? I love the Dummi Bears! Come on, let's take car of that car.
(back to Charlotte, still on the phone in her car)
Charlotte: Well, Lloyd. If you feel that way, the maybe it's best we didn't meet after all.
(Jack, the kids, host, and waiter go to Charlotte's car)
Charlotte: Uh, Lloyd. I'll, I'll call you right back.
Angelica: Mommy, we found Jack for you.
Charlotte: Angelica. Kids, well, I thought you were... (the dog barks) Spike?
Jack: Mrs. Pickles, Jack Montello.
(shakes her hand)
Charlotte: Mr. Montello. I'm not sure what happened here but thank you for bringing back my little girl and her friends.
Jack: It's no problem. From the moment I saw your daughter in my restaurant I said this girl, she's got a lot of moxy.
Charlotte: Well, she does have a lot of my strong points.
Jack: (opening up the door to his limo) Now, if you'll allow me to drive, the Dummi Bears show starts in eight minutes.
Charlotte: Yes, of course.
(at the show; everyone watching it)
(Dummi Bear continues singing the Dummi Bears song)
Jack: I love that Jelly Bear.
(wipes tear away from his eye)
