(The viewers go up to a door, and a boy and two girls open it up)

Three Kids: (in unison) Hi! Come on in! We're gonna watch "Blue's Clues"! You wanna watch with us? It's just about to start! 

(The three children sit down in front of the television. Then they see Steve come in with the tape player trying to make up a dance and it makes the three kids laugh)

Steve: No, that's not right. Ooh, maybe this would work. 

(Steve rewinds the tape and tries another doing another dance and the kids laugh again)

Boy: You're silly!

(Steve notices the three kids)

Steve: Oh! Hi. I was just working out a birthday dance for Blue. But, you know, having a little trouble. Will you help?

Boy: Yes.

Steve: You will?

Boy: Yes!

Steve: Oh, great! All right, let me try this one out on you. 

(Steve rewinds the tape again and he tries doing another dance and kids laugh again)

Steve: (stops tape) No. Guess that's not really the best birthday dance for Blue. 

(Blue snores because she's still sleeping)

Steve: Oh! Blue! (he comes up to the screen) Blue's gonna wake up soon, and today is her big birthday party. We have so much to do to get ready. We have streamers, and hats, and balloons, and presents to wrap up, everybody’s coming over, but, I still have to make a birthday dance for Blue. Well, do you know a birthday dance? 

Three Kids: (in unison) Yeah. The Birthday Candle Dance!

Steve: Oh, the Birthday Candle Dance. Could, could you teach it to me?

Three Kids: (in unison) Yeah! Come on over!

Steve: Oh. You mean uh… You want me to skidoo?

Boy: Yeah. 

Girl #1: Yes. 

Steve: Over to your house?

Three Kids: (in unison) Yeah. 

Steve: Okay. Sounds cool. (he puts the tape recorder on the Thinking Chair) I’m so excited.

(singing) I skidoo, right to you!

(Steve skidoos out of the TV and into the house)

Steve: Oh! (kneels down in front of the kids) Hi! I'm so glad that you invited me over! So, so you can really teach me the uh, the, the birthday dance? The, uh?...

Three Kids: (in unison) Birthday Candle Dance!

Steve: Oh, right! The Birthday Candle Dance! Sounds uh, pretty fancy! Do you really think you can teach it to me?

Girl #2 and Boy: (in unison) Sure!

Steve: Yeah? Alright, well, I don't have a lot of time. Blue's party is today! (singing quietly) We're gonna have a par... (suddenly stops singing and looks to the right side) Oh, hey, Timely!

(Steve runs over to the shelf and starts talking to a blue clock)

Steve: Hey, Timely, how much time do I have before Blue's birthday party because I still have to learn the birthday candle dance? These nice people are gonna teach it to me, it looks kind of tough, but...

Girl #1: Steve, that clock doesn't talk!

Steve: This clock? Oh, well, sure he does. You don't know Timely? Well, come on.

(The kids walk over to Steve)

Steve: (to the kids) Now, Timely can be a little bit shy. (to Timely) Timely, these are my friends.

(The kids stare at Timely as they wait, in a few seconds, his eyes appear, making the kids gasp in surprise, then his mouth appears and this time, the kids laugh)

Timely: Oh, uh, hi. (yawns)

(The kids laugh again)

Timely: Steve! Blue's birthday party starts soon. You need to be back when both my hands are on the number 12. That means 12 o'clock. You don't have much time!

Steve: Well, alright! I'm ready to dance! (he does some dance moves, making the kids laugh)

Girl #2: Come on, Steve!

Steve: This way? Okay.

(The kids take Steve over to the floor)

Steve: Okay, how does it go?

Three Kids: (in unison) Watch us!

Steve: Okay.

(Steve sits up and mouths the viewers to them)

Boy: One, two, three, hit it!

(Start of "The Birthday Candle Dance")

Three Kids: (singing) Have a happy birthday, you-ooh! And we'll have a great day too-hoo! Everybody play, 'cause it's Blue's special day, happy birthday! Blow out the candles!

(End of song and Steve applauds)

Steve: Wow! You know what? Blue is gonna love that! But you know what? It looks a little bit tricky. Could you show it to me again? A little bit slower?

Boy: Slow motion.

Steve: Okay, go ahead.

Boy: One, two, three, hit it.

Three Kids: (singing) Have a happy birthday, you-ooh! And we'll have a great day too-hoo! Everybody play, 'cause it's Blue's special day, happy birthday! Blow out the candles!

Steve: Okay, okay. I think I got it, I think I got it, I think I got it. Now I'm gonna try, and will you tell me if I figured out something wrong?

Girl #2: Yeah.
