(Arthur walks into his dad's kitchen, carrying a football)

Arthur Read: Dad, I got the ball! Let's play!

Nigel Ratburn: There's no time for play! We have a lot of work to do!

Arthur: Oh, uh, hi, Mr. Ratburn. I'm looking for my dad.

Ratburn Dad: Very funny, Arthur. Now put down that ball and help me stuff turkeys for the Crosswires' big party.

(Arthur leaves)

Arthur: Mom! Mom! I went up to the garage to talk to Dad, and Dad's not there.

Ratburn Mom: He was out there a minute ago.

(Arthur bumps into his sister, dropping the football)

Ratburn D.W.: HEY! WATCH WHERE YOU'RE GOING!

Arthur: What's going on? Where's my family?

Ratburn Dad: Arthur Ratburn, stop fooling around and get to work!

Ratburn Pal: Woof! Woof!

Arthur: (screams) Noooo!

(He wakes up, and realizes it was only a dream)

Arthur: What could be worse than dreaming that your teacher lives in your house?

Mr. Ratburn: Arthur, if you don't hurry, D.W. and I will eat all the delicious blueberry waffles your dad made!
