Captioning sponsored by Nbc/universal narrator: George thought the best way to spend a relaxing afternoon was a visit with Professor Wiseman.

(gibbering excitedly) (chattering impatiently) (George chattering) Wiseman: Yes... no.




Gravitational pull.

You're welcome.

Oh... oh, hi, guys.


(chatters "Hello") (chiming) Just a minute, I have to respond to this urgent message from Dr. Hasslein.

Uh, should we come back another time?

You seem busy.

Oh, no.

I am dizzier-- I mean, busier-- than usual, but it's administrative duties.


Office work.

Answering questions, filing, copying.

(chattering curiously) (phone ringing) Apatosaurus?


(sighs) Boy, I'm overseeing five exhibits: two opening here and two more opening in Cleveland.

(chattering curiously) Oh. (chuckles) I mean four exhibits.

Two plus two still equals four, even when you're distracted.

(sighs) I think all of this work is getting to you.


(hooting) George is right.

You need to relax.

We'll help.

We're very relaxing guys.

How about Saturday?

(hooting excitedly) George is right.

Oh, where is the schedule?

(chattering) I had a pen.

(chattering) Oh, there it is.

Thank you.

(chattering) Saturday... relax.

(hooting excitedly) (sighs) Let's see.

Professor Wiseman needs our help.


Let's think of some relaxing things to do tomorrow.

(chattering) (chattering in confusion) Ah.

(hooting excitedly) Uh-huh, that's fun, but she needs to relax.

You know, something peaceful.

(sighs) (chattering excitedly) (George gibbering loudly) Um, George?

(George sighs) (grunting) (sighs) Aha!

A picnic.

That's relaxing.


(hooting happily) Narrator: So, the next morning, the Man with the Yellow Hat packed a picnic lunch.

George: Aha.

(chattering excitedly) I think we have all the ingredients it takes to relax one professor.

(hooting happily) Ooh.

(chattering happily) Man: That's very generous, George, but I brought enough for everyone.

Oh, thank you.

I'm fully prepared for a day of total relaxation.

It's good to be away from work for a while, isn't it?

Yes... I wore blue, which is a scientifically proven relaxing color.

Plus, I practiced reclining at a 45 degree angle, a very relaxing position.

Man: Well, this is all going perfectly.



(swallows) Well, what?

(chuckling) Feel relaxed yet?

Well, actually, I was trying to remember if I faxed the specifications of Jupiter's moons to the director of...

Don't think about anything.

We'll do all the thinking for you.

(sighs) I think you'd like a pickle.

Uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-huh.

(grunting) Huh.

(grunting) (chattering) (grunting) (grunting) (sighs) Here.

Let me try.

No, no, no.

You just...

(straining): relax.

Wiseman: What we need to solve this is something that will help you grip.

Uh... aha.

I think this is rubber.

(chitters curiously) (grunting) (chatters happily) (sighs) Don't give it to her.

She shouldn't have to work.

I'll just show George how to do it.

(chatters "Yeah") Turn it like this.

(chatters "Okay") (grunting) (chatters triumphantly) (splattering) (chatters "Hey") Huh?

(Man sighs, George gasps) Hmm.


(chatters "Sorry") So, we know pickles aren't relaxing.

At least not flying pickles.

This is sure to relax you.

Well, honestly, I'm just as happy sitting on the ground.

But what could be more relaxing than hanging from a tree?

(chuckling) Uh-huh.

Watch, you just lie back and let your troubles melt away.

(chattering softly) Oh, thanks, George.

(chatters "You're welcome") (chattering excitedly) Uh, George...

Whoa, whoa!

(groaning) Oh, let me help.

(grunting) Ooh, he's too heavy.

(panting) (sighs) (worried chattering) Don't worry.

I'm sure I can find a way to solve the problem.

Oh, no, you relax.

I'll work it out.

(grunting) Hmm... if we only had a big stick we could use as a lever.


Man: Almost there, George.



Uh, you're not gonna get me out the way you get candy out of a piñata, are you?

No, we'll use the bat as a lever.


(grunting) Whoa.

(groaning) Oh, are you hurt?

No, I, uh...

I landed on my hat.

(grunting) Oh, no, only an hour left to squeeze in some real relaxation.

Now, we're not gonna create any more work for Professor Wiseman, right?

Uh-huh, uh-huh.

Okay, come on.

Come on, come on, come on, come on!

(grunting) Feed the ducks.

(chattering excitedly) (hooting happily) (ducks quacking) You, too.

Fun, relaxation, ducks!


Here I go.

(quacking) (chattering happily) George, careful.

(chattering excitedly) (grunts) Uh-oh.

(quacking) Uh...

No problem, we're still feeding them, right?

It's fun, huh, right?


But your hat is waddling away.

(quacks) Man: Oh!

My hat.


We can solve this problem.

You shouldn't.

I-I should.

Okay, how?

(gasping): Aha.

We can use the kite string to fish the hat out of the water.

I just need a hook.


Perfect choice.


Want to toss it, George?


(disappointed whimpering) Hmm, we need more weight.


Okay, try again.

(chattering) (ducks quacking) (yells excitedly) (grunting) (gasps) Aha!

See that branch?


Wiseman: We can use it to lift the hat.

We can?

(chatters "We can?") Hmm.

(chattering) Man: Fantastic.

(chatters "All right!") Oh, thank you.

Thank you.

Oh, this wasn't what I planned.

All you did was solve problems for us.

Please, accept my apology.

Apology? For what?

I had a very relaxing day.




Hands-on problem solving.

Not like work, where I just answer questions and shuffle paper.

(sighs) Well, then, you're welcome.

Well, see you.

(chattering) Oh, okay.

(sighs) Wow.

Who knew relaxing could be so exhausting?

Ah... whew.

(chuckles) Come on, George, I think it's time for a nap.
