  • Narrator: It was a perfect day to walk down N. Avenue and wonder "if building numbers get higher and higher... do they ever stop?" And that's exactly what George was doing...
  • (net swishes)
  • Curious George: Huh?
  • Narrator: ...until he got curious about a sound.
  • Curious George: (chattering)
  • (net swishes)
  • Curious George: Huh?
  • (net swishes)
  • Curious George: Huh? (chattering)
  • Betsy: Hi, George. Want to shoot baskets?
  • Steve: 23!
  • Betsy: When's it going to be my turn, Steve?
  • Steve: When I miss. If I miss. Now, where was I? Oh, yeah, 23. I'm going for a new record. 24 baskets in a row.
  • Curious George: Ooh... (sighs impressively)
  • Steve: (groans) Oh! Now it's your turn, Betsy.
  • Betsy: Here, you take a turn, George.
  • Curious George: Huh? (chatters) (cheers)
  • Betsy: Whoa, maybe you can beat Steve's record.
  • Steve: That's one. You need 23 more to beat me.
  • Curious George: (chattering)
  • Narrator: George was sure he could get 24... 34, maybe... 104!
  • Curious George: Yeah!
  • Betsy: Oh, no! Wait! Come back! That's our ball!
  • Steve: Ha. Now what?
  • Betsy: How about miniature golf?
  • Curious George: Hmm?!
  • Betsy: You've never played? It's great! There's a castle and a windmill...
  • Curious George: (impressive sigh)
  • Steve: I'll show you how you play. I'm good at this. To figure your score, add up how many times you hit the ball before it goes in the hole.
  • Narrator: George had one goal: to do better at golf than he had at basketball.
  • Curious George: Ha!
  • Narrator: By the end of the first hole, George knew he was great at this game.
  • Betsy: A little softer.
  • Steve: On hole number one, I got a five, Betsy got eight, and George-- 27.
  • Narrator: George hadn't come close to Steve's 23 baskets, but he already had the highest golf score!
  • (trumpet fanfare)
  • Curious George: (chattering)
  • Steve: On this hole, Betsy got four and I got three. If you get it in now, you'll have nine.
  • Curious George: Ah. (chattering)
  • Narrator: Nine? George was sure he could get that score up higher. But it took effort to miss from so close.
  • Curious George: (hooting)
  • Betsy: That's ten. Keep trying. Eleven, twelve, thirteen, fourteen... Hit the windmill again. That's 20.
  • Narrator: Getting a high score at golf was easy. George was born to golf! At the end of the game, Steve totaled up the scores.
  • Steve: I had 35. That's my new record for the best score yet!
  • Curious George: (chattering)
  • Steve: Betsy's adds up to 58.
  • Curious George: (chatters)
  • Narrator: And George-- 257.
  • Curious George: (chattering happily)
  • Betsy: George, a high score isn't good.
  • Curious George: (chattering) Huh?
  • Steve: You want to get the ball in the hole with the least number of tries.
  • Betsy: In golf, the lowest score is best. I thought you knew.
  • Narrator: George couldn't imagine how the lowest number could be the best.
  • Curious George: (chattering)
  • Narrator: That meant if George didn't play at all, he'd score zero, and be the greatest golfer in history.
  • Steve: Maybe monkeys just aren't meant to play golf.
  • Curious George: (chatters sadly)
  • Narrator: Numbers can confuse a monkey. (Curious George dreams about 100 and 3 before it) How can a big number be worth less than a small number?
  • (kitten purring)
  • Narrator: Maybe monkeys weren't meant to play golf or basketball, or to set records.
  • Curious George: (sighs)
  • Betsy: That was just like miniature golf! I think you'd have done better at miniature golf if you'd known the rules.
  • Curious George: (chattering)
  • Narrator: Sometimes girls and monkeys think exactly alike.
  • Betsy: We could build our very own golf course right here! I know where to get some great stuff to build a golf course with.
  • Curious George: (chattering)
  • Man with the Yellow Hat: Sure, you can play with that stuff.
  • Curious George: (hooting)
  • Man with the Yellow Hat: But don't ride the unicycle without a helmet!
  • (both grunting) (loud crash)
  • Betsy: Wow. Great stuff. Let's get to work!
  • Curious George: (chattering)
  • Steve: Betsy, Aunt Margaret says to be home for dinner in an hour. Holy cow!
  • Betsy: We made our own mini-golf course. You want to play?
  • Steve: Okay.
  • Betsy: In our game, each hole uses a special club.
  • Curious George: Ya, ha-ha-ha!
  • Steve: You'll never get it through there. You kept hitting the windmill yesterday.
  • Betsy: A hole in one!
  • Curious George: (cheering)
  • Steve: Great! If George can do that, I'm going to break all my golf records on this easy course.
  • Curious George: (chattering)
  • Steve: (chuckles) George, thanks, but I really don't need help on this.
  • Curious George: (quiet chatter)
  • Betsy: Are you keeping track of your score on this easy course, Steve?
  • Steve: Oh, yes. Okay, on the first hole, George got a one-- lucky. Betsy got a six, and I got... a six.
  • Betsy: The club for this hole, please. Here we go. Whoa. Oh!
  • Curious George: (chattering)
  • Betsy: (off-screen) Oh... Yes! There it is!
  • Steve: A hole in one!
  • Betsy: My first ever! Looks like I'm going for the record, too.
  • Steve: Okay, here comes my hole in one. Aah!
  • Curious George: (soft chattering) Uh-huh. Uh-huh.
  • Steve: Uh-huh.
  • (pigeons cooing)
  • Steve: A hole in two!
  • Betsy: (off-screen) All right!
  • Curious George: (groans)
  • Gnoccchi: Meow.
  • Betsy: (off-screen) Oh... Oh, yeah!
  • Curious George: (cheering)
  • Betsy: We're all going for our best scores ever on this course.
  • Steve: They're our first scores ever on this course.
  • Betsy: Yeah, so? They're still the best.
  • Steve: What's the club for the last hole?
  • Curious George: Ah.
  • Betsy: No club. It's a blowhole. Get it? Whale? Blowhole? Okay... going around... and... the house... (giggles) Oh, oh, oh, oh... Oh! Perfect!
  • Curious George: (cheering)
  • Steve: (groans) (panting) At the end of the game, I have 40, Betsy has 25, and George... got a 21?!
  • Curious George: (cheering)
  • Betsy: I told you, you'd play better when you knew the rules.
  • Steve: I'm sorry. I said monkeys shouldn't play golf. You guys want to play real mini golf tomorrow?
  • Curious George: Uh-uh.
  • Betsy: Thanks, but we like this better.
  • Steve: Oh. Can I play again with you tomorrow? Maybe George can help me improve my game.
  • Curious George: Uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-huh. Ah. (chattering happily)
  • (door closes)
  • Girl #1: George is a monkey, so he can do things that we can't do.
  • Girl #2: He added up his score and it was too high. We are adding up what we are going to buy.
  • Boy #1: Today we're setting up our own store.
  • Teacher: Each team is getting five dollars.
  • Girl #1: The slices of apples are 25 cents. The popcorn is two dollars.
  • Boy #1: The grapes cost four dollars.
  • Boy #2: I think we might want to get the grapes. I think there is a pack of grapes. But how many is that?
  • Girl #3: One... two... three... 24 grapes. Nope. Four dollars is almost all our money and each kid would only get a few grapes.
  • Girl #2: So we're not getting grapes. Okay. We got two bags of popcorn and four slices of apples.
  • Boy #3: Both teams bought popcorn because the low number of price is good and the high number of popcorn is good.
  • Kids: A toast.
