Narrator: This was the first time George noticed the walls were wrapped. It looked like wrapping on top of more wrapping.
Curious George: (chattering)
Narrator: Maybe there were a hundred layers of wallpaper under here. Or not. Since he reached the end, George tried to put it all back, but it didn't want to go. Then he thought of a way to make this the perfect bathroom for the professor's birthday.
Curious George: Yeah! (chattering)
(elevator bell dings)
Man with the Yellow Hat: Uh... Is that you, George? Make sure you wash up before Professor Wiseman gets here.
Curious George: Uh-huh!
Man with the Yellow Hat: (off-screen) And would you make sure that bowl of her favorite fresh fruit is out where she'll see it?
Curious George: Ooh. Uh-oh. Uh... (chattering)
Man with the Yellow Hat: You can't get away with that.
Curious George: Ooh. (chuckles) Huh?
Man with the Yellow Hat: You didn't wash. This hand is all sticky. Okay, now, wa... wa... wa... What happened in here?
Curious George: Uh?
Man with the Yellow Hat: Professor Wiseman! Help me hide this mess!
Curious George: (chattering)
Curious George: Hee-hee! (hooting)
Professor Wiseman: Hello, George. Everything okay?
Curious George: Oh. (chatters)
Man with the Yellow Hat: (off-screen) I'll be right out. I got your favorite fruit! Help yourself.
Professor Wiseman: Oh. Uh... Is this a banangerine? You can't put skins on fruit, George. Only nature can do that.
Curious George: Oh. (chattering)
Professor Wiseman: On the other hand, nature doesn't make banangerines.
Man with the Yellow Hat: Sorry. I'm... Happy birthday from George and me.
Professor Wiseman: Oh, you didn't have to. Would you like to help me open it, George?
Curious George: Ooh. (chatters) (chatters)
Professor Wiseman: (gasps) I never would have guessed that's what was in this big box!
Man with the Yellow Hat: That's... that's why it was wrapped that way.
Professor Wiseman: Oh! My favorite symphony! You remembered. Thanks. Let's listen to it during dinner.
Man with the Yellow Hat: Oh, here. I'll get that.
Narrator: George figured he'd better eat something... because this was going take a while.
Child #1: George is a monkey, so he can do things that you can't do.
Child #2: He put all the skins back on the wrong fruits. Today we are going to the Harvard Museum of Natural History.
Denise: Now, if you had to pick one of these bananas, which one do you think you would choose? This bright yellow one, right?
Boy: Fruit is just like a present.
Denise: And this wrapper tells you that this one is good to eat.
Child #2: Blech!
Boy: The green fruit is basically saying, "I taste horrible and don't eat me..."
Child #1: Ew!
Boy: "...until I'm ripe." The yellow one is basically saying, "I'm ripe. Come and eat me."
Child #3: Mmm.
Denise: And what's the point of the seed?
Children: To grow a new plant.
Denise: That's right, to grow new plants.
Boy: The plant wants the animal to eat the fruit, so when the animal is finished, he poops out the seeds.
Child #2: So it can spread around and grow in new places.
Boy: The skin of the fruit tells the animal if it's ready or not ready.
