thank you, mrs. wilson. oh, thank you, my dear. oh, i think i'll have two just to celebrate. my goodness, mr. wilson, i'd celebrate too if someone offered me $2,000 for a coin collection. well, i simply can't quite get over it. i merely put an ad in that coin collector magazine-- and the next thing george knew, he had a call from this mr. sheldon from upstate, saying he was coming down tomorrow afternoon. well, $2,000 certainly is a lot of money, mr. wilson, but aren't you afraid you're gonna miss looking at your collection? well, if i get lonely, mitchell, i always figure i can stare at the $2,000.

"the time has come for you and your friends to help a friend in trouble." jeepers, mr. wilson, that friend in trouble must mean you. dennis, the only time i am in trouble is when you try to help me. well, it's time this side of the ouija board gets home. oh, must you, mitchell? yes. thank you-- well-- --for the lovely tea, mrs. wilson. and the swell fortune cookie. it was very pleasant. thank you. bye-bye. good-bye. see you later. don't you worry, mr. wilson, i won't let anything bad happen to you tomorrow.

[music] gee, dennis, what are we gonna do now? we'll stand guard, tommy. you go see if you can get reinforcements. okay.
martha, i think i'll go see if the mail has come. all right, dear. halt. oh, good grief. who goes there? little boy, go home. oh, great scott. you're not supposed to shoot him, seymour. that's good old mr. wilson. dennis, i'm afraid you and your small friend will have to find somewhere else to play today. oh, we're not playing. we're guarding you from harm. well, thank you, dennis. that'll be quite-- what hit me? a shingle fell off the roof.
what is it, dennis? a mysterious stranger left this for you and ran off. oh, is that so? boy, he sure was mean-lookin'. he was even meaner-lookin' than you. what is that animal doing here? that's tiny, our reinforcement. today we borrowed to help guard you. well, you make sure that your friend stays off my flowers. you're not just gonna open that box, mr. wilson. and why not? jeepers, have you forgotten what day this is? maybe there's a bomb in it. i think i hear a clock ticking. i'll get a pail of water. oh, dennis. now you stop being silly.
we got lots of bandages in our house. dennis, for the last time, i want you to take your squad of commandos and go home. but my fortune cookie said me and my friends were supposed to look after you today. well, if you don't stop looking after me, there won't be anything left to look after. okay. but we'll leave tiny here just in case. all right. bye. what's that, dear. oh, that's just a package, martha. aren't you going to open it? open it? oh, yes, of course, i'll open it a little later. george wilson, what has come over you? oh, nothing, martha. it's just--oh no. no, no, no, no, no, no, don't. but why?
that--it could even be a bomb. a bomb? oh really. well, all right, martha, if you insist, i'll open it. why, it's my new hat. martha: how do you like it, dear. it's very nice, martha. george, don't you feel just a little foolish? like the village idiot. now then, why don't you go out and take a nice quiet walk. and when you come back, you'll be all relaxed for your visit with ms. sheldon this afternoon. all right, my dear, i'll do just that. how ridiculous can a grown man get, huh? have a good time, dear. i will, martha. and you can be sure of one thing. this is one scorpio who's not going to have the rest of this day ruined. [dog barking]
george: oh, martha. [music] hello again, and thank you, ladies and gentlemen. it's a pleasure to be back with you. and now, for a look at today's prizes before we again play our remember when music quiz. all righty, are we ready? now, listen carefully to today's mystery tune of yesterday. [music] hi, mr. wilson. dennis, please, i'm listening. remember, the number i call may be yours. we brought you some homemade fudge, mr. wilson.
we would've brought it sooner but we got all sticky makin' it. delicious. but it is sort of gooey, isn't it? that's because we've ran out of sugar and used molasses. well, whatever it is-- hmm, that tone certainly sounds familiar. i know it. it's "sharing a love seat with you." what you saying, mr. wilson? "sharing a love seat with you." gee, you sound funny, mr. wilson. say it again. oh, dennis. and now, for today's call, which is going to a mr. george wilson at 625 elm street. -- jeepers. did you hear that, tommy? oh boy.
mmm. is this mr. george wilson? that's right. jeepers. isn't this exciting, tommy? mr. wilson, i'm having a bit of trouble understanding you. i'm stuck. try chewing faster, mr. wilson. mr. wilson, this is madcap madden. can you tell me the name of the song i just played? -- wilson, you have to speak clear. swallow, mr. wilson. i can't. get some water, tommy. okay. mr. wilson, would you please repeat that title? -- did you say something about the flu? oh, are you ill, mr. wilson? talk to him. wait a minute, mister. mr. wilson's stuck together.
i'm dennis mitchell. i'm sorry, dennis, but mr. wilson's time is about up. [mumbling] wait a minute, mister. what's that first word, mr. wilson? sharing. sharing. i can't read. i had trouble finding a glass. he'll be unstuck in a minute, mister. oh. hello. [bell ringing] i'm sorry, mr. wilson, but your time is up. but i know the answer. better luck next time. the correct title was "sharing a love seat with you." i knew it.
sure having a terrible day, aren't you, mr. wilson? would you like to have another piece of candy? little boy, go home. [doorbell] hello. hello. mr. wilson, i'm philip sheldon. oh, mr. sheldon, come in, come in. thank you. dennis. dennis. it's all right, seymour. i think mr. wilson knows him. well, right this way, mr. sheldon. collections right away. children, if you'll excuse us, please. come on, man.
your children? oh, my goodness. oh, mr. sheldon. now, i'm sure that after you've examined the collection-- here you are. that's a check for $2,000 but you haven't even-- mr. wilson, i consider myself an excellent judge of character. i have no doubt that this collection is precisely as represented. well, my goodness, that was fast, wasn't it? my, my, $2,000. psst. psst. yes. that doesn't look like money to me, mr. wilson. this isn't money, dennis. it's a check for $2,000. now, i'll get the collection together for you, mr. sheldon. i have an uncle who writes toy checks.
dad says they bounce like a rubber ball. what strange misconceptions children get. well, tommy, when they say a check bounces, that means it isn't any good. jeepers, it does? gee, mr. wilson, aren't you even gonna drop that check? drop it? to see if it bounces. i assure you young man that that check is perfectly good. of course, it is. then how do you know if you haven't tried to bounce it. oh, dennis. actually, the proper way to make sure a check is g gd is to call a bank and find out, and i'm sure mr. sheldon wouldn't mind if do just that. well. but, mr. sheldon-- if that's the way you feel, goodbye. but mr. sheldon. [dog barking]
my collection. why, that scoundrel took my coin collection. [music] isn't it fitting, mr. wilson? my fortune cookie said me and my friends would keep you out of trouble today. [music] and so, because of dennis and his friends, the crook didn't get george's coin collection after all. ah, my goodness. maybe there's something to these fortune cookies after all? well, maybe so, mitchell, but i still decided i'm much happier not knowing what's in store for me tomorrow. oh, i'm in favor of them myself. the one i opened yesterday got me a new dress and shoes to match. hi, is it time for the fortune cookies yet? i suppose so, dear. say, mom, is it all right
to have a fortune cookie too? well, of course, you could, dear, but i'm afraid there aren't any left. , well, alice, do ma far and let dennis' frie have mine. jeepers, thanks, mr. wilson. it's all right, you can come on in and have a fortune cookie too, tiny. here, tiny. hey, not the whole cookie. this is your fortune. well, what do you know? well, what does it say? beware, you are about to lead a dog's life. jeepers, mr. wilson, this fortune cookie must be meant for you.

"cake and ice-cream will be served." signed mrs. henry woods. well, you might as well throw this one away, mom. - well now, why wouldn't he want to go to a party at school for penny woods? - well in the first place, because she's a girl. in the second place, 'cause beaver says she's just about the creepiest girl in the whole school. - oh, i think that's ridiculous. i wanted him to go, because i think this is going to be a sweet little affair. - okay mom, but i think this is going to be one of those sweet little affairs dad's going to have to beat him into going to.
