Opening Countertop[]

(We see Bob The Tomato with Junior Asparagus in place of Larry the Cucumber.)

Bob: Hi kids, and welcome to VeggieTales! I'm Bob the Tomato.

Junior: And I'm Junior Asparagus!

Bob: And we're here to answer your questions.

Junior: Yep, that's right!

Bob: (Regarding the reason Junior is here rather than Larry) I bet you're wondering where Larry is.

(Junior looks and smiles at the camera)

Bob: He was a little tired after the last show, so we decided to let him sleep in today. But don't worry, he'll be here pretty soon. In the meantime, Junior Asparagus has very graciously agreed to help out.

Junior: Hi!

Bob: Now Junior...

Junior: Yes, Bob?

Bob: Today we got a letter from Victor Bartholomew from Sausalito, California.

Junior: Oh. (To the screen) Hi, Victor!

Bob: Victor has a problem. He says there's a kid named Louis in his class who hit him yesterday.

Junior: Oh my!

Bob: "Oh my" is right! Now in church, Victor just learned that God wants us to be nice to people; even when they're not nice to us. But Victor doesn't really feel like doing that. Deep down inside, he wants to hit Louis back. What should he do? Should he do it his way or should he do it God's way?

Junior: Oh, wow. I know how you feel, Victor. Sometimes the stuff I learn in church doesn't sound like very much fun, sometimes I feel like doing things my own way, too. Do you suppose we have a story about that?

Bob: Oh, do we! Have I ever told you about the Israelites?

Junior: Hmm, the Israelites... Oh yeah, I remember those guys! Weren't they supposed to be God's chosen people?

Bob: That's what the Bible says.

Junior: Oh, I bet they always followed God's directions.

Bob: Oh, ho, ho. You'd think so, wouldn't you? But sometimes God's directions didn't seem to make sense to them. You see...well... maybe I should just show you.

Junior: Huh?

Bob: Close your eyes, Junior, and don't open them until I say so.

Junior: Alright!

Josh and the Big Wall!: Act I[]

(Bob and Junior then close their eyes as a strong wind blows away all the countertop objects, the tiles and Junior's hat, before the wind transports them to the deserts of Israel. Junior's hat is replaced with a garment similar to what he wore when he portrayed Dave in Dave and the Giant Pickle.)

Bob: Okay!

Junior: What?! How did we get here?!

Bob: We're using our imagination.

Junior: Oh! So these must be the Israelites.

Bob: Yep!

Junior: Why are they out here in the middle of nowhere?

Bob: Oh ho, now that is a good question! Have you ever heard of a guy named Moses?

Junior: Hmm, isn't he the one who parted the Red Sea?

Bob: Right again, but we're gonna go back a little further. (We are shown a map of northeast Africa and southwest Asia. Off screen) The Israelites were living in Egypt, but not because they wanted to, no, the Egyptians had taken them captive and were making them work very hard as their slaves!

Junior: Oh dear!

Bob: It was miserable! (During the following dialogue, Moses (played by Mr. Nezzer) watches the burning bush tell him what to do.) But God cared about the Israelites so he sent Moses to lead them out of Egypt and into their own land, the Promised Land!

Junior: This is the Promised Land?

Bob: Oh, no, no, no. The land God promised them was wonderful. You could grow things and there was lots of food. No, this is the desert.

Junior: So, why are they here?

Bob: Ah, yes. That is the point. (The map is shown again. Off screen) When Moses and the Israelites left Egypt, all they had to do was follow God's directions and they'd go right to the Promised Land. (Back to Bob and Junior) But they didn't always follow his directions. Sometimes they went their OWN way instead.

Junior: What do ya mean?

Bob: Well for example Moses led them to the Promised Land right away, but when some of the Israelites took a look around, they saw people there that looked like giants! (The Israelites see three giant pickles.) That scared them so much, they wouldn't go in! They got to the land God promised them and then they turned around and ran away!

(Moses watches as three peas chicken out.)

Junior: Oh my!

Bob: Now God was very disappointed in them for not following His directions. So He told them none of them could go into the Promised Land for 40 years!

Junior: You're kidding me.

Bob: Nope! That's why they're stuck here in the desert.

Junior: Wow!

Bob: By the time 40 years had gone by, Moses had died.

Junior: I thought this story was about him.

Bob: No. It's about Joshua!

(Pan over to Joshua (played by Larry))

Junior: Joshua? Who's he?

Bob: Well, he was Moses' helper. When Moses died, Joshua became Israel's new leader.

Joshua: Do I know you?

Bob: I'm the narrator.

Joshua: Oh...

Bob: The Israelites were very sad about Moses dying because he was a great leader, but at last, it was finally time.

(Promised Land 1997 and 2002 versions are little different because of horns)

Pa: It's time?

Scooter: It's time?

Jimmy: Did he just say it's time?

Percy: We didn't have a lot of fun in the desert.

We didn't have a lot of fun in the sand.

Tom: But saddle up your cow.

Percy: It's all behind us now.

All: Because we're goin' to the Promised Land.

(Jimmy comes out of his tent with manna crumbs)

Jimmy: For years I've eaten nothing but manna.

A dish that is filling but bland.

Jerry: But now we're on our way.

Pa: I'll have a cheese soufflé.

All: Because we're goin' to the Promised Land. (The Israelites fantasize about whatever foods are waiting for them there.) And in the Promised Land, it's gonna be so grand. We'll have our fill from the grill as much as we can stand. It'll be so great. Oh, we can hardly wait, 'cause we're going to the Promised Land.

(Scooter stands next to a plate with a single piece of popcorn which is then replaced with a giant cupcake.)

Scooter: The dining was lousy with Moses but we'll be feasting with Josh in command!

Jimmy: I'd like a taco please and some pintos and cheese.

All: Because we're goin' to the Promised Land (Everyone is shown standing on a giant cake) And in the Promised Land, it's gonna be so grand. We'll have our fill from the grill as much as we can stand. It'll be so great. Oh, we can hardly wait, 'cause we're going to the Promised Land. And in the Promised Land, it's gonna be so grand. We'll have our fill from the grill as much as we can stand. It'll be so great...

Jimmy: With waffles on my plate.

All: Cause we're goin' to the Promised Land.

Pa: I hear it's flowing with milk and honey.

Jimmy: Sounds sticky!

All: Cause we're goin' to the promised land. Yeah we're goin' to the Promised Land. Cause we're goin' to the Promised Land.

(Their fantasy world disappears. Fade to all the Israelites making their way to the Promised Land.)

Bob (narrating): So off they went. After 40 years, the Israelites were finally going to their new home. With a big grin, Josh led his people into the Promised Land. Unfortunately, he overlooked one little detail… (Joshua bumps into something. Camera zooms out to show that the detail is the walls of a city called...) Jericho.

Song of the Cebu![]

(Cut to black before fading to the Silly Songs with Larry card. On it, Larry is shown with a projector.)

Announcer: And now it's time for Silly Songs with Larry, the part of the show where Larry comes out and sings a silly song. Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls! Larry the Cucumber presents, in a sequential image, stereophonic, multimedia event, The Song of the Cebu!

(Throughout the song, Larry shows drawings of a boy and three Cebús)

Larry: Ce-bú! This is a song about a boy... a song about a little boy and his cebús...a song about a little boy and his three cebús...The little boy who had...a sick cebú...a sad cebú...and a mute Cebu. (A drawing of a hippo is shown) And also a hippo. (Larry then shows vacation photos.) Um... uhh... this is me at the airport. This is my aunt Ruth. This is me at a bullfight. This is me fighting a bull.

Jimmy, Jerry & Junior: Ooo!

Larry: This is me and the bull.

Jimmy, Jerry & Junior: Ahh!

Larry: This is me and the bull and... I think that's the bull's cousin. He's a cebú!

(Archibald suddenly comes in)

Archibald: Hold it! You call this a multimedia event? This is a slide projector and a bed sheet! And what on earth is a cebú, anyway?

Larry: It's kind of like a cow. See?

Archibald: Yes. Well, very good. This could be interesting. Carry on!

(Archibald leaves as the song continues.)

Larry: Cebú! Sing it with me! Cebú!

Jimmy, Jerry & Junior: Cebú!

Larry: Boy is riding with cebú

Jimmy, Jerry & Junior: Boy is riding with cebú

Larry: Into town in his canoe

Jimmy, Jerry & Junior: Into town in his canoe

Larry: Sick cebú is rowing & sneezing. Achoo moo moo, achoo moo moo, achoo moo moo, achoo moo moo moo moo

Jimmy, Jerry & Junior: Achoo moo moo,achoo moo moo, achoo moo moo, achoo moo moo moo moo

Larry: Hippo chewing on bamboo

Jimmy, Jerry & Junior: Hippo chewing on bamboo

Larry: Can't see boy and three cebus

Jimmy, Jerry & Junior: Can't see boy and three cebus

Larry: Sad cebú is rowing and crying Boo-hoo moo moo, boo-hoo moo moo, boo-hoo moo moo, boo-hoo moo moo moo moo

Jimmy, Jerry & Junior: Boo-hoo moo moo, boo-hoo moo moo, boo-hoo moo moo, boo-hoo moo moo moo moo

Larry: Cebú!

Jimmy, Jerry & Junior: Cebú!

Larry: Cebú!

Jimmy, Jerry & Junior: Cebú!

All: Achoo moo moo, boo-hoo moo moo, boo-hoo moo moo, achoo moo moo achoo moo moo, boo-hoo moo moo, cebú!

Larry: Hippo seen by mute cebú

Jimmy, Jerry & Junior: Hippo seen by mute cebú

Larry: Tries to tell the other two

Jimmy, Jerry & Junior: Tries to tell the other two

Larry: Mute cebú is waving and grunting Mmm-hmm mmm mmm, mmm-hmm mmm mmm, mmm-hmm mmm mmm, mmm-hmm mmm mmm mmm mmm

Jimmy, Jerry & Junior: Mmm-hmm mmm mmm, mmm-hmm mmm mmm, mmm-hmm mmm mmm, mmm-hmm mmm mmm mmm mmm

(Something goes wrong.)

Larry: Uh-oh.

(As Larry tries to fix the problem, Archibald comes back and the music dies down.)

Archibald: Wait! What happens next?

Larry: Um ...

Archibald: Does the hippo see them? Is the poor mute cebú successful in communicating the imminent danger to the other passengers? Is the boy injured? Why is the sad cebú sad? Is the canoe wood or aluminum?

(Larry then pulls up more vacation photos, one of which is of a dolphin playing with Bob as if he were a beachball.)

Larry: Oh look! There's me and Bob at Sea World! Oh, wow.

Jimmy, Jerry, & Junior: Oooh!

Larry: Forgot about that one. There's me and that bull again.

Archibald: You can't just start a song and leave it hanging like that! You know, I've come to expect a lot more from you. This is quite disappointing! I'm going to have to speak to Bob about this.

(a drawing of what looks like a cebu shows up.)

Larry: Oh look, a cebú!

Jimmy, Jerry & Junior: Cebu!

(As the Silly Songs title card reappears, Larry then realizes what the creature really is)

Larry: No, wait ... that's a water buffalo.

Jimmy, Jerry & Junior: No more song about cebú! Need another verse or two! Audience is standing and leaving, Bye-bye moo, bye-bye moo, bye-bye moo, bye-bye moo moo moo moo.

Jimmy: I want my money back!

Jerry: Yeah, that'd be ... that'd be good.

Josh and the Big Wall!: Act II[]

(Camera fades back to the story.)

Phillipe: Did you hear something, Jean-Claude?

Jean-Claude: May oui Phillipe. I think someone has bumped our wall!

(The French Peas look down at the Israelites.)

Joshua: Who are you?

Jean-Claude: Who are we? I think we should ask, who are you?

Josh: Oh um, I am Joshua, and these are the children of Israel.

Phillipe: Ooh! Hello, children!

Jimmy: Hi!

Phillipe: It was nice to meet you. NOW GO AWAY!

Jean-Claude: YES! (Jean-Claude sticks out his tongue and blows raspberry.)

Josh: No, You don't understand! God has given us this land for our new home! So well, YOU'RE gonna have to leave.

Phillipe: Oh, ho ho ho. Did you hear that, Jean Claude? The little pickle says we have to leave.

Joshua: (Gentle tone) I'm a cucumber.

Jean-Claude: That is hilarious! Let me point something out to you, pickle. We have a wall. You do not! (off screen) If anyone is to be doing the leaving, it will be you!

Phillipe: Oh that is right.

Josh: Now listen to me! Our God said this land was ours and all we had to do was follow his directions so I'm afraid if you don't come out, WE'RE gonna have to come in there after ya!

Phillipe: Oh ho ho ho.

Jean-Claude: Ha, Ha, Ha, ha, I'd like to see you try! You could never get over our giant wall, tiny pickle!

Phillipe: Yes, tiny pickle, you are not a mighty dill, you are just a baby gherkin!

Joshua: (annoyed) I'm a cucumber!

(Jean-Claude and Phillipe laugh)

Phillipe: (accidentally drops the slushy) Ooh, my slushy!!

(Slushy falls onto Jimmy Gourd's head)

Jimmy: Maybe we should fall back and regroup.

(The Israelites retreat.)

Jean-Claude: Ha, ha!

Phillipe: Ho, ho!

Jean-Claude: Flee, you cowards!

Phillipe: Bye bye!

Jean-Claude: You may have your God, but we have our wall!

(Jean-Claude and Phillipe ad lib as Joshua and the other Israelites leave)

Bob (narrating): Well, things weren't going as smoothly as Joshua had hoped, so the Israelites decided to fall back and talk things over.

(Fade to later that night.)

Tom: That's a big wall.

Pa Grape: This time, I really mean it! We should go back to Egypt.

Israelites: Huh?

Pa Grape: Don't ya remember? Snorkeling in the Nile, three square meals a day, plenty of exercise; oh, it was paradise.

Tom: We were in slavery!

Pa Grape: Nothing is perfect.

Jimmy: Listen kids, that land is rightfully ours and the only way we're gonna get it is by taking out that wall, right, Jerry?

Jerry: Oh yeah, that's- that's right, Jimmy.

Jimmy: So, Jerry and I are gonna put our heads together and come up with a plan to take out the wall!

Jerry: Yeah!

Pa Grape: They are so aggressive.

Bob (narrating): Josh didn't know what to do and he could see that things were getting a little outta control.

Jimmy: Where did we put that chemistry set?

Pa Grape: Is Egypt north or south?

Bob: Then he remembered whenever Moses didn't know what to do he would go and talk to God.

Junior: How did he do that?

Bob: Well, Moses found the best way was to go off by himself and just listen.

Joshua: I'll be right back.

Bob: So Josh went away from the camp to see if he could hear God. (As Joshua does so, a shadow appears behind him.) After he had gone away, he saw a strange man with a sword.

(Joshua turns to see Archibald Asparagus with armor and a sword.)

Junior: Whoa!

Bob: Josh wondered whether this guy was on his side, or on Jericho's side.

Joshua: Are you for us or for our enemies?

Commander (Archibald Asparagus): Neither, but as commander of the army of the Lord, I have now come.

Bob: Well Josh realized this was a messenger from God so he immediately fell face down on the ground in reverence.

Joshua: (muffled): What message does my Lord have for His servant?

(Commander turns to Bob and Junior, who just shrug)

Commander: I'm sorry, I couldn't make that out.

Joshua: I said, "What message does my Lord have for His servant?"

Commander: Oh, really? That's what you said?

Joshua: Yes, that's what I've said.

Commander: Oh, alright. I've come with directions from the Lord.

Joshua: Great! What are they?

Commander: The Lord says to you Joshua: "See, I have delivered Jericho into your hands. March around the city once with all your men. Do this each day for six days, have seven priests carry trumpets of rams' horns in front of the ark. On the seventh day, march around the city seven times with the priests blowing the trumpets. When you hear them sound a long blast, have all the people give a loud shout and the walls of the city will collapse! And Jericho will be yours!" (Beat) Well, have fun. (He leaves)

Junior: Those were very interesting directions.

Bob (narrating): They sure were. Josh went back to camp, and told the plan to the rest of the Israelites.

(Fade to the following morning as Joshua tells everyone what he heard last night.)

Joshua: And the walls of the city will collapse and Jericho will be yours.

Bob: They thought it was interesting, too.

Jimmy: So, we're supposed to hop around the city for 7 days, blow our little horns, yell, and the walls are just gonna fall down?

Joshua: Yep, those are God's directions.

Jimmy: Well, I'm sure that will work great, if the walls were made out of Jell-O!

Jerry: Ooh! Then we could eat 'em.

Pa Grape: Last call for Egypt! Who's coming with me?

(A few "I dos" and "Me" are heard.)

Jimmy: Just a minute! I think you'll find our plan a bit more sophisticated. Blowing horns in the desert isn't gonna do it. What we need is serious firepower! Jerry, the curtain! (Jerry removes an orange curtain, revealing a giant, rather crudely-built rocket.) Behold our creation, The Wallminator 3000! (applause)

Tom: How are we clapping?

Pa Grape: I have no idea.

(Jimmy and Jerry bow.)

Junior: This is terrible! It looks like they're gonna ignore God's directions again!

Bob: Shh! Josh has something to say.

Joshua: I think we're forgetting something! Ahem. (The Lord Has Given starts) The Lord has given this land to us. No need to fuss. He knows what's He's doing. We know He will care of us if we will follow Him. Now everyone, sing together.

The Israelites: The Lord has given this land to us. No need to fuss. He knows what's He's doing. We know that He will take care of us if we will follow Him.

Josh: As your new leader, I think we should try doing it God's way first.

Bob (narrating): Well, God's way still sounded kinda funny, but the Israelites agreed to give it a try and the next day, there they were marching around Jericho. It wasn't long before the people of Jericho noticed the Israelites.

Jean Claude: What are you doing?

Jimmy: We're going to knock your wall down!

Jean Claude: By walking around in circles?

Jimmy: Yes. (beat) It's not 'cause we're crazy or anything. Our God told us to do it this way.

Phillipe: Oh, that's a great idea! You go ahead and keep walking! (Keep Walking starts) Keep walking, but you won't knock down our wall! Keep walking, but she isn't gonna fall! It's plain to see your brains are very small to think walking will be knocking down our wall! You silly little pickle, you silly little peas! You think walking round will bring this city to its knees? The awesome power of this wall we clearly demonstrated Ah! But out here in the hot, hot sun, perhaps you're dehydrated?

Jean Claude: I pity them, Philippe.

Philippe: Ah, mais oui, Jean Claude, mais oui. Won't you join me in my irritating little song?

Jean Claude: It would be an honor!

(Jean Claude and Philippe): Keep walking, but you won't knock down our wall Keep walking, but she isn't gonna fall! It's plain to see, your brains are very small to think walking will be knocking down our wall. (More soldiers join in on the song.) Keep walking, but you won't knock down our wall Keep walking, but she isn't gonna fall! It's plain to see, your brains are very small to think walking will be knocking down our wall It's plain to see... your brains are very small to think walking will be knocking down our waaaaalllll!

Jean Claude: Alright boys, let them have it! (The entire army pulls out cups of slushies.) Fire at will!

(The army starts dropping their slushies.)

Josh: Double time!

(The Israelites start hopping faster as the slushies fall all around them.)

Bob (Narrating): Well, it wasn't a pretty sight. but the Israelites did make it all the way around Jericho. (A slushy hits the camera. Fade back to the camp.) Back at their camp that night, they talked it over.

Joshua: That could have been worse. We made it all the way around so we only need to do this 6 more days,.. and that will take care of it. Well, what do you think?

(The Israelites are shown covered in bandages and slushies.)

Jimmy: I've got slushy in my ear.

Joshua: Well, um.

Jimmy: Time to fire up the Wallminator, Jerry!

Joshua: Um, do you think that's a good idea?

Pa Grape: Who wants to see the pyramids? I'm organizing a tour.

Joshua: No, wait!

Bob: Well, things were really falling apart this time. Josh needed to do something and quick! (notices that Junior's not next to him anymore) Junior?

Junior: (O.S.) Wait! Don't you see what you're doing? (The Israelites turn to him) God gave you directions and you're ignoring them! Don't you remember what happened when you were supposed to go into the Promised Land, but you got scared and ran away instead? 'Cause you didn't follow his directions, you had to stay in the desert for 40 years!

Jimmy: Well, yeah, but that was...

Junior: I know God's directions don't always make sense to us, but things work out a lot better when we do them God's way instead of trying to do things our OWN way! (Off screen) It didn't make sense when God told you to walk right through the Red Sea, but what happened? The water dried up! And it didn't make sense when God told you to live in the desert even though there's no food in the desert, but what happened? (On screen) God gave you manna to eat! Don't you see? Sometimes God asks us to do things that don't make sense to us, like walking around a city to make the walls fall down or being nice to someone who hasn't been nice to us, but when we remember God made us, loves us and always wants what's best for us, we can be sure His way is the best way. (singing) The Lord has given this land to us. No need to fuss. He knows what He's doing. We know that He will take care of us if we will follow Him. God's way is the best way now that I know he loves me so. His way is the best way and that's the way for me! (Speaking) Tomorrow morning, Josh and I are going back out there to march around Jericho. Who's coming with us?

Tom: You can count on me!

Jimmy: Alright, we're in.

(Everyone cheers)

Percy: Hey, somebody's gotta carry that ark.

(Everyone cheers again)

Tom: Well Pa, do you still want to see the pyramids?

Pa Grape: Aw, I've seen the pyramids. I've built the pyramids! Let's go to Jericho!

Israelites: (cheering)

(Scene fades to black. And then, it goes straight to the next morning)

Bob (narrating): The next day, they all set off again to march around Jericho. Now, God never said it would be easy. No, the people of Jericho hit 'em with everything they had!

Jean-Claude: Fire one! Fire two! (they use garden hoses to pour more slushy on the Israelites.)

Bob (narrating): But the Israelites remembered they were following God's directions and they kept on marching. (The soldiers use a cement truck to drop more slushy on their foes) Six days they marched and nothing could stop them. (The Israelites use umbrellas to protect themselves from the falling slushies. The scene translates to a beautiful sunrise where a rooster crows) On the seventh day, just like God had told them, they marched around Jericho seven times while the priests blew their horns. ("When the Saints Go Marching In" playing) And just like God said. when they finished marching, the priests blew one long blast, and then all the people yelled!

Israelites: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!

Pa Grape: (hacking)

(The Israelites look up at the wall as it's still standing. The soldiers laugh at their enemies' seemingly futile attempts to destroy their wall, when suddenly, a brick jumps out of its place. This silences their laughter. As they turn to see the brick, a low rumbling is heard. The rumbling sound gets louder as the ground starts to quake.)

French Peas: (look at each other for two seconds and realize their wall is collapsing.) Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!

(Joshua and the Israelites back away from the wall as it starts to collapse. The huge gong bell falls off along with the tower with a loud bang noise. As the walls collapse, a huge dust storm blows as the Israelites shut their eyes tight. Eventually, the dust clears and the Israelites are all covered in dust. Jericho has been reduced to bricks, broken pillars and a single bathtub. The dust covered soldiers are somehow unharmed.)

Soldiers: (gasp)

Josh: Hello! My name is Joshua, and God has given us this land!

French Peas: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!! (They finally surrender and run away from Joshua and their destroyed fortress in fright)

Bob: So the Israelites obeyed God and the walls fell down.

Junior: Wow!

Bob: Finally, after forty years, they were in their new home.

Jimmy: Oh yeah. oh… OH!!! Boy, did I pick a lousy day to wear my contacts!

(As the story ends, Bob and Junior watch as the Israelites walk through the ruins of Jericho and to the Promised Land. Jimmy however bumps into a stack of bricks due to the dust in his eyes. The camera zooms away from the ruins before fading to the map seen earlier.)

All: (singing) And in the Promised Land, it's gonna be so grand. We're gonna march through the streets walking hand in hand. It'll be so great. Now, we don't have to wait 'cause we're going to the Promised Land. Yeah, we're going to the Promised Land!!!

Jimmy: Does anyone have any saline?

Closing Countertop[]

(The story ends, fades back to Bob & Junior on the countertop.)

Bob: Well, what'd ya think?

Junior: That was amazing! But did they really build a rocket in the middle of the desert and get slushies dropped on their heads?

Bob: Ah, no. Those are some things that we put in OUR story, remember? We were using our imaginations.

Junior: Oh!

Bob: But there really was a guy named Joshua, and the Israelites really did walk around Jericho and the walls really did fall down.

Junior: Wow!

Bob: Yep. If you want to learn more about Joshua, you can read about him in the bible in the book called Joshua!

Junior: Wow! He's even got his own book?

Bob: That's right! We're over here by Qwerty to talk about what we learned today.

Singers: And so what we have learned applies to our lives today, and God has a lot to say in His book...

Bob: I'll be right back. (Bob precedes to stop the song, but a slushy drops in front of him.) Huh? What?!

Jean-Claude: Not so fast, tomato!

Phillipe: Yes, we love that song!

Singers: You see, we know that God's word is for everyone and now that our song is done we'll take a look.

Junior: The Israelites learned that since God loves them and was always looking out for them, that His way was the best way.

Bob: That's right, and because Josh obeyed God, he went on to be a great leader too, just like Moses. Let's see if Qwerty has a verse for us. (Qwerty shows the verse, which reads ...) "As for God, his way is perfect."—2 Samuel 22:31a.

Junior: Well, gee, if God's way is perfect, I guess it makes sense to obey him.

Bob: I think you're right, Junior. So Victor, I know being nice to someone who hasn't been nice to you doesn't sound like very much fun, but following God's directions is always the best idea and maybe Louis doesn't need a punch in the nose. Maybe Louis needs a friend.

Junior: Yeah!

Bob: Well, we're out of time for today. Remember...

Junior: God Made You Special, and He Loves You Very Much.

Both: Bye!

(As Junior & Bob leave the countertop, the door is opened and closed. Larry appears in the same pajamas from Oh, Santa! in The Toy That Saved Christmas)

Larry: (Yawns) Is it time for the show?

(The lights turn off and Qwerty's screen goes off, leaving only Larry's eyes in the dark.)

Larry: Aw, nuts.

(The credits then roll with "The Promised Land" playing all throughout)
