After a mishap involving accidentally picking up the wrong infant, the duo explode through the general store, getting kicked out. The MTM's tracking device shows her new location to be in the zoo,zoo... more specifically, about to go over a ''[[OhCrap waterfall]]''.

Thankfully, it's not all that deep, but the river splits - the duo go down one path, Dana the other. She seems to be fine, but Calvin and Hobbes are soon separated thanks to a whirlpool.

Meanwhile, Andy and Socrates get a call from Calvin's mom, who's coming home in half an hour!

After quite a bit, Hobbes and Calvin reunite and find Dana with ten minutes left before Mom comes home. Back at the house, Andy ends up having to cover for him, which leads to a lot of BlatantLies, but thankfully he comes home soon.

* BigWhat: When Hobbes finds out about the time limit.

Added DiffLines:


One Friday afternoon, Calvin finds himself faced with a problem - his mother has left him to babysit his little cousin Dana while she's at the store, and his friends are coming over![[labelnote:*]]This is the first appearance of Andy and Sherman in ''The Series'', having previously debuted in ''Fanfic/AttackOfTheTeacherCreature''.[[/labelnote]] The duo resolve to be the best babysitters they can be (although it takes the other three a bit of begging to agree).

Their attempts at feeding her go unrewarded, and she finds herself abandoned when the five attempt to set up their ultimate water balloon trap. Unsurprisingly, she wanders out into open traffic, and Calvin and Hobbes take after her.

After a mishap involving accidentally picking up the wrong infant, the duo explode through the general store, getting kicked out. The MTM's tracking device shows her new location to be in the zoo,

!!Tropes:
* BadlyBatteredBabysitter: The cast becomes this.
* CasanovaWannabe: Andy.
* CoveredInGunge: Sherman ends up covered in green baby food.
* FlyingBroomstick: Referenced.
--> '''Calvin:''' OW! HEY! YEEK! HEY GET AWAY! YOU SHOULD BE ''RIDING'' THAT THING INSTEAD OF SWINGING IT!
* InvisibilityCloak: The MTM can make one.
* ParentalBonus: Calvin's rant against having kids is more or less incomprehensible to anyone in the ([[ScriptFic proposed]]) target demographic.
* PuppyDogEyes: Calvin and Hobbes pull these out on Andy and Socrates. Sherman is unaffected.
* WeCouldHaveAvoidedAllThis: After attempting to feed Dana for quite a while, Sherman simply notes that she's not hungry.
--> '''Calvin:''' Why didn't you say that earlier?\\
'''Sherman:''' Nobody asked me.
* WhatTheHellHero: When Socrates does a SpitTake all over Dana as a form of revenge.
* WouldHurtAChild: The mother of the baby boy whaps a broom over Calvin's head.
* YouDidntAsk: See above.
