(Steve opens the door, and Blue has their toy plane)

Steve: Hi. Do you want to fly a plane with us? Great! Come on. 

(Blue gets in the Thinking Chair and gets ready to throw the plane)

Steve: (nose pinched) Okay, Blue. Start your engines. We need more power. (normal voice) Start your engines too. 

(Steve and viewers make plane noises by flapping their lips)

Steve: Louder. 

(Blue throws the plane into the air, but then it falls to the floor and a wing falls off)

Blue: Uh-oh. 

Steve: Oof. What happened?

Kid: It broke. 

Steve: It broke? It is broken. Will you help us fix it? You will? Great! Come on. 

(Steve and Blue go over to the plane to see what the problem was)

Steve: So, which part of the plane, is broken?

Kid: The wing!

Steve: The wing? (Blue picks up the wing that fell off) Oh, right. One of the wings broke off. That's probably why the plane fell. Well, let's put the wing back on, and start the engines. 

(Blue puts the wing back on the plane, then Steve stands and Blue gets back in the Thinking Chair and gets ready to try again)

Steve: Do you think we fixed it?

(Steve makes the plane noise with his lips, and then Blue throws the plane in the air and it flies perfectly)

Steve: It flew! (the plane flies across them to the right) We fixed it.

(They both watch as the plane the other way away)

Steve: You're really good at that fixing stuff. All right. Hey, Blue, is there anything else we need to fix?

(Blue leaves paw print on the left side of the screen)

Steve: Oh. (comes up to the screen) I see what you're up to, Blue. We'll play Blue's Clues, to figure out what we need to fix. I love Blue's Clues. 

   We are gonna play Blue’s Clues

   Cause it’s a really great game, yeah!

Steve: So remember, Blue’s paw prints will on the clues: Blue’s Clues. Hey, speaking of paw prints, I wonder how this one works? (he touches the fourth toe of the paw print and all four toes form a circle at the top of the paw like rotor blades on a helicopter) Hey, it's like those rotor things, that make helicopters go. Cool. 

(Steve pushes the toe rotor blades and the paw print lifts up like a helicopter)

Steve: (like on radio) Uh, Paw Print, you are clear for takeoff. 

(The paw print helicopter takes off and flies away)

Steve: Cool. You know what we need to play Blue's Clues. Our handy-dandy…

Kid: Notebook!

Steve: Notebook, right. Come on.

(Steve goes to Side Table Drawer)

Side Table: Blue’s Clues, I'm so excited!

Steve: Hi, Side Table Drawer. Just came to get our note, book. 

(Steve tries to get his notebook, but he realizes that the drawer isn't open)

Steve: Oh, right. See the drawer, has to be open before I can get the notebook. 

Side Table: That's how drawers work. 

Steve: Thanks. 

(Side Table opens her drawer and Steve gets the notebook out)

Steve: You know, I can tell I'm ready gonna need your help today, trying to figure out what we need to fix. Will you help me? You will? Great! Okay. 

(music begins)

Steve: To play Blue's Clues, we got to find a...

Kids: Paw print!

Steve: Oh, a paw print, right. And that's our first...

Kids: Clue!

Steve: A clue?

Kids: A clue!

Steve: Then we put it in our...

Kids: Notebook!


   Cause they're Blue's Clues, Blue's Clues

   We got to find another paw print,

   That's the second clue

   We put it in our notebook,

   Cause they're whose clues? 

   Blue's Clues!

   We got to find the last paw print,

   That's the third clue

   We put it in our notebook

   Cause they're Blue's Clues, Blue's Clues

   You know what to do

   Sit down in our Thinking Chair

   And think, think, think

   Cause when we use our minds,

   And take a step at a time

   We can do anything...

Blue: Ba-bow!

Steve: That we want to do! (does jazz hands) Okay. So, did you see which way Blue went?

(Blue comes from the left and leaves a trail of string for Steve to follow)

Kids: That way!

Steve: This way. Let's go. (he notices the string) Ooh. What's this? Let's see where it leads. 

(Steve crawls on the floor and follows the string)


   We are looking for Blue's Clues

   We are looking for Blue's Clues

   We are looking for Blue's Clues

   Wonder where this goes 

(Steve sees that the string goes up to the coat rack. Then he stands up, and sees the string goes over a hook on the rack)

Steve: Ooh. I wonder how this works. 

(Steve pulls down on one end of the string and then the first clue comes up on the other end of the string)

Kid: A clue! A clue!

Steve: Oh, yeah! That is really cool. If I pull this end down, (pulls string down and the clue comes up) and that end goes up. (the clue goes down) See that? It works like a pulley. 

Kid: It's a clue!

Steve: Oh! You see a clue? (he looks behind him, then he makes the clue go down) Where?

Kid: Right there!

(Steve pulls his end down, and then he sees the clue come up on the other end of the string)

Steve: Oh, there it is! On the string! There's a clue on the string! Okay. (he lets go of the string and the clue goes down) You know what we need. Our handy-dandy…

Kid: Notebook. 

Steve: Notebook, right. So, string. 

Steve drawing: We draw a long wavy line like this, and we have string. 

Steve: So, we’re trying to figure out what we need to fix today. And our first clue, is string. What do you think? Ooh, yeah. Holy smokes! It's time to look for two more clues to be sure.

Mail Time, Mail Time, Mail Time, Mail Time, Mail Time!

Steve: You know what that means? The mail's here!

  Here's the mail, it never fails.
  It makes me want to wag my tail,
  When it comes, I want to wail, “Mail!”

(Mailbox comes in and Steve sits in the Thinking Chair)

Mailbox: Hey, Steve. Do you know how letters work?

Steve: How letters work?

Mailbox: I give you your letter, and you open it. (laughs)

Steve: Oh! (Steve laughs and he gets his letter out) Thanks, Mailbox.

Mailbox: You’re welcome.

(Mailbox leaves)

Steve: We just got a letter.

  We just got a letter
  We just got a letter
  We just got a letter
  Wonder who it's from?

Steve: It’s a letter from our friends.

Girl 1: Hi, Steve. We’re learning how tape recorders work.

Girl 2: The tape goes in like this.

(They put the cassette tape in the tape recorder)

Boy: This is the Record button.

Girl 1: If we push it, we can record our voices.

(the boy pushes the button)

Girl 1: (into microphone) Hi, Blue. Hi, Steve.

Girl 2: Rewind, rewind.

(They push the Rewind button)

Girl 1: We push Play to listen to our message. (she pushes the Play button)

Her voice recorded: Hi, Blue. Hi, Steve.

All: (into the microphone) Bye, Steve and Blue!

Steve: Bye.

(Steve closes his letter, and Blue comes out behind the Thinking Chair with their tape recorder and records what Steve is about to say)

Steve: That’s so cool how tape recorders work. (laughs)

Shovel & Pail: Vroom! Vroom!

Steve: Outside, here I come!

(Steve goes outside)

Shovel: I think my car will go faster. 

Pail: No, I think my car will go faster. 

Steve: I think my car will go faster. 

Shovel & Pail: Who said that?

Steve: Hi, Shovel. Hi, Pail. It’s me, Steve. Guy from the house. 

Shovel: Look, Steve. We made ramps for our race cars. 

Pail: Do you know how ramps work?

Steve: Ramps? Do you want to help Shovel and Pail figure out how ramps work? Cool. Then we can go look for more Blue’s Clues. 

(Steve sits on the ground and takes out a checkered racing flag in the ground)

Shovel & Pail: Ready? Vroom! Vroom!

Steve: Well, whose car do you think will go faster? Shovel’s or Pail’s? Let’s see. On your mark, get set, go!

(Steve waves the flag and they let go of their cars and Pail’s car goes faster than Shovel’s)

Steve: Pail’s car went faster. 

All: But why?

Steve: Well, same cars, you let go of them at the same time, something must be different. Do you know? What’s different?

Kid: That ramp is higher!

Steve: Oh, right! Pail’s ramp is higher. Maybe that’s why her car went faster. Wow. Are you some kind of ramp wizard or something?

Shovel: Let’s do it again. 

(Steve sits up and Pail takes away two blocks from under her ramp and Shovel puts another block under his ramp)

Shovel & Pail: Ready? Vroom! Vroom!

Steve: Ooh, ramp wizard. Well, whose car do you think will go faster? Shovel’s or Pail’s? Let’s see. On your mark, get set, go!

(Steve waves the flag and they let go of their cars and Shovel’s car goes faster than Pail’s)

Steve: Ooh, Shovel’s car went faster. But why?

Shovel & Pail: But why?

Steve: Do you know why Shovel’s car went faster?

Kid: That ramp is higher!

Steve: Oh, right. Shovel’s ramp is higher, so his car went faster. Now we can go look for more...

Shovel: Let’s do it again.

Steve & Pail: Yeah!

(Steve sits up again and Pail adds one more block under her ramp making it the same height as Shovel’s)

Shovel & Pail: Ready? Vroom! Vroom!

Steve: What do you think will happen this time? You think? Let’s see. On your mark, get set, get really set, gopher! 

(Steve laughs and a gopher comes out of the ground)

Shovel & Pail: Steve!

Steve: (to the gopher) Oh, no. I was just kidding. (the gopher goes back in the ground) On your mark, get set, go!

(Steve waves the flag and both of their cars go down their ramps at the same time)

Steve: What happened?

Kids: It’s a tie!

Steve: Oh, a tie. 

All: But why?

Steve: Do you know why it was a tie?

Kid: The ramps are at the same height. 

Steve: Oh, right. The ramps are the same height, so the cars went the same speed. 

Shovel & Pail: Thanks for your help. 

Steve: Oh, thank the ramp wizard. 

(Steve stands up)

Steve: Now let’s go look for more Blue’s Clues. (the wind blows) Ooh. What was that?

Kid: Wind!

Steve: Oh, right. It’s wind. 

(the wind blows again and Steve sees their toy plane fly by)

Steve: Hey, let’s glide. 

(Steve holds his arms out and pretends to glide, and while gliding the wind blows the second clue past him)

Kid: A clue!

Steve: You wanna do a loop? Okay, hold on. (he pretends to do a loop)

Kid: No, a clue!

(Steve stops and he sees the second clue being blown in the wind)

Steve: Oh! There it is! (the wind blows the clue away) And there it goes. (laughs) The clue my friends, is blowing in the (wind blows) wind. Okay. We need our handy-dandy, windy-dindy...

Kids: Notebook!

Steve: Notebook, right. So, our second clue is, wind... (the wind blows again)

Steve drawing: Well, wind is invisible, but we can draw some swirly lines like this. 

Steve: So, we’re trying to figure out what we need to fix. What was our first clue?

Kid: String!

Steve: String, right. And now our second clue is wind. So, what could we need to fix with string and wind? (deep voice) Time to find for one more clue, just in case!

(Steve heads back inside as Blue plays it back)

Steve’s voice: That’s so cool how tape recorders work. (laughs)

(Blue goes down and Steve had no idea where that came from and Blue comes up on the other side)

Steve: Okay, where is that voice coming from?

Kids: Tape recorder!

(Blue shows him the tape recorder)

Steve: Oh, the tape recorder. (he takes the tape recorder from Blue) That’s so cool how tape recorders work. Heh. Hey, Blue, can we record your voice now?

Blue: Yes. 

Steve: (takes out microphone) Alright. Well, then, just go ahead and do the... Um, do you remember which Blue talks into?

Kids: The microphone!

Steve: Oh, the microphone. Right. (clears throat)

(Steve holds the microphone up to Blue, but Blue tells him that their not ready yet)

Steve: Now what do we do?

Kid: Push the Record button. 

Steve: Oh, right. If, if I push the Record button, then Blue can talk into it. (he pushes the Record button) Okay, Blue, recording. 

(Blue barks into the microphone. Steve pushes the Rewind button, then Play and they listen to Blue’s voice on the tape recorder)

Steve: We did it! (pushes the Stop button) Blue! That’s your voice! We recorded Blue’s voice. 

(Blue leaves and barks the Skidoo song, and Steve thought that came from the tape recorder)

Steve: Oh, Blue just skidooed. (puts tape recorder away) Let’s go, too. 

(Steve gets up and sees that Blue skidooed into a racing game board)

Steve: Blue skidooed into that game board. Let’s go, too. 

   Blue skidoo, we can, too

(Steve skidoos into the game board, and he is now at a road race game)

Steve: Whoa. Look at this. (he comes up to Blue) A road race game! Groovy. 

(Steve and Blue go up to the race track, and see Gopher riding his scooter)

Steve: Go, gopher, yeah.

(Skunk comes by on her roller skates)

Steve: All right, Skunk, you go. 

Rabbit: I need help!

(Steve and Blue go up to Rabbit on her tricycle, but isn’t moving)

Steve: Go, Rabbit. Go...

Rabbit: Are you the mechanics? Cause I need help. 

Steve: The mechanics? Oh, you, you mean the ones who fix stuff. Uh, well, we can try to be. Will you Blue and me be the mechanics so we can help this rabbit? Great. Okay, Rabbit, what’s wrong?

Rabbit: I’m not going anywhere. How do I make this tricycle move?

(Steve thinks about it and then he goes up to Rabbit)

Steve: Hmm, motion. There’s gotta be some way to get these wheels to move. Ooh. Hey, Rabbit, what you gotta do, is you gotta talk to the wheels. Like this. (to the wheels) Hey, wheels, move! You go, wheels. Woo-hoo! Did that work?

Kids: No!

Rabbit: The wheels aren’t listening, Steve. 

Steve: Well, do you know? What makes the wheels turn?

Kid: Pedals!

Steve: Oh, right. Hey, Rabbit, try pushing the pedals. 

(Rabbit puts her feet on the pedals and when she pushes them she starts moving)

Rabbit: I’m moving!

Steve: You are quite the mechanic. Rabbit pedals, which turns the wheels... 

Rabbit: Which makes my tricycle go. Thanks for the help. 

(After Rabbit leaves, Pig comes by driving his car)

Pig: Whoa! Help! I need the mechanic!

Steve: We’re the mechanics!

(Steve and Blue catch up with him at the right turn of the race track)

Steve: What can we do to set you straight?

Pig: I want to go that way, but I keep going this way. How can I make my car go where I want it to?

Steve: Oh. So, Pig keeps moving straight, but he wants to go this way. How does he turn? Ooh.

(Steve goes to the front of Pig’s car)

Steve: I can’t believe it took me this long. Hey, Pig, what you gotta do, is you gotta honk this here horn. (he honks the horn) Right?

Kids: No!

Steve: Hmm. This is gonna be harder than I thought. Do you know? Do you see anything Pig could use to make his car go the way he wants to go?

Kid: Steering wheel!

Steve: Oh, yeah! Hey, Pig, try turning that steering wheel. 

(Pig turns his steering wheel and that makes his front wheels turn the way he turns it)

Pig: Look! When I turn my steering wheel that way, my wheels go that way. 

Steve: Which makes your car go that way. 

(Pig uses the steering wheel to make the turn on the track)

Steve: Well, that’s how steering wheels work. 

(Steve and Blue go around the track to the other side and catch up with Pig as he leaves)

Pig: Thanks!

Steve: Bye. 

(Chipmunk comes in on his bicycle)

Chipmunk: Are you the mechanics?

Steve: Yes, sir. 

Chipmunk: I can’t stop my bike! I forget how!

Steve: Uh-oh. 

(Steve and Blue begin to follow him)

Steve: We better figure this one out fast. How do you stop a bicycle?

Blue: I don’t know. 

Kid: Pedal backwards!

Steve: Right! Hey, Chipmunk, try pedaling backwards. (Chipmunk pedals backwards and that stop him and Steve keeps running) Yeah, like that...

Chipmunk: I stopped!

(Blue leaves and Steve comes back)

Steve: Yeah. (laughs) Stopped. You see? This brakes stopped the wheels, and that stopped the bike. You’re such a good mechanic. 

Chipmunk: Stop, go, stop, go. This is so much fun! You’re the best mechanics. 

Steve: Oh, stop. (Chipmunk pedals backwards) Go. 

(Chipmunk pedals forwards and leaves)

Steve: Hey, we better find our last clue. Come on. 

(Skunk comes by on her roller skates, and she drops a diamond shaped piece of paper with the third clue on the race track)

Kid: A clue, a clue!

Steve: Hey, Skunk! You dropped something!

(Steve bends down and picks the piece of paper)

Steve: (to Skunk) It looks like a… (to the viewers) What is this?

Kids: It’s a clue!

Steve: It’s looks like a clue! It’s got Blue’s paw print on it!

(Steve suddenly notices the diamond shaped piece of paper he’s holding has the third clue on it)

Steve: Oh! This piece of paper is a clue! Now we need our handy-dandy...

Kids: Notebook!

Steve: Notebook, right. Cool. A diamond shaped piece of paper. 

Steve drawing: A diamond has four diagonal lines like this. There. 

Steve: And we have our third clue. Hey, we have all three clues! You know what that means. Where do we go?

Kids: Thinking Chair!

Steve: Thinking Chair!

(Steve makes like a car and drives to the billboard of their way home, and him and Blue skidoo back. Then Steve drives to the Thinking Chair and sits down)

Steve: Okay. Now that we’re in our Thinking Chair, let’s think. Will you help me? You will? Great! So, we’re trying to figure out what we need to fix. And our clues are: string, wind, and paper shaped like a diamond. So, what could we need to fix with string, wind, and paper shaped like a diamond? Well, the string could be attached to the paper. But, that wouldn’t do anything unless... Unless, huh, the wind blew the paper. Yeah! And then you’d have a, a… What would you have?

Kid: A kite!

Steve: A kite? A kite! In flight! That’s right. That’s what we need to fix! Hey, Blue? Do we need to fix our kite?

Blue: Yes, we do. 

Steve: We just figured out Blue’s Clues!

   We just figured out Blue's Clues

   We just figured out Blue's Clues

   We just figured out Blue's Clues

   Cause we're really smart!

Steve: Blue, let’s go see if we can fix our kite. You know, you better come with us, because you are really good at fixing stuff. Come on. 

(Steve catches up with Blue outside with their kite, and Steve dips his finger his mouth and he feels a good breeze for flying their kite)

Steve: It’s a perfect day to fly a kite! Okay, Blue. 

(Blue begins running, but the kite just drags on the ground)

Blue: Uh-oh. 

(Steve and Blue bring the kite up to the viewers)

Steve: Why isn’t our kite working?

Kid: It’s ripped!

Steve: Ripped?

(Steve and Blue notice a ripped hole in the kite and that’s why it wasn’t flying)

Steve: Oh, it is ripped, right there. So, all of the wind is going through the kite. Well, how can we fix it?

Kids: Tape it!

Steve: Yeah. Let’s try taping it up. 

(Blue gets some tape and she covers up the hole in the kite)

Skye: Okay, Blue, let’s see if our taped up kite will fly. 

(Steve and Blue get ready to try again and then Shovel and Pail come in)

Shovel: Now that we know how ramps work…

Pail: We want to see how kites work, too. 

Steve: Hi, Shovel. Hi, Pail. Okay, Blue, let’s try to catch some wind. 

(Blue makes the kite the wind and the begins to fly)

Shovel & Pail: Ooh! Aah!

Steve: There it goes! It’s working! We fixed it!

Shovel & Pail: Whoa!

(The kite suddenly flies nears the trees)

Steve: Ooh, Blue. Uh, you wanna be real careful. You’re getting near the, the trees there. What you gotta do is, is...

(Pig comes in his car)

Pig: Steer it!

Steve: Yeah, steer it! Oh, look, it’s Pig. Remember when we’re mechanics and we helped Pig steer his car? So, Pig, you know anything about steering kites? 

Pig: Um, pull the string and the kite will move. 

(Blue does what Pig said and that helps her steer the kite away from the trees)

Steve: Everybody’s a mechanic. (laughs) Hey, thanks so much for all your help today. I know who to call if anything needs fixing. 

   Now It's time for So Long

   But, we'll sing just one more song

   Thanks for doing your part

   You sure are smart

   You know, with me and you

   And my dog, Blue

   We can do anything 

Steve: That we want to do! Bye bye. See you later.
