[Ben] Every time my family goes out,
there's always this, uh, big hurry
to get ready.
-[Ben] Oh.
-[Ella] Ow!
[Ben chuckles] The strange thing is,
the more we hurry, the longer it takes.
But even though Mom, Dad, Ella and me
are kinda always late
[car horn honking]
Grandpa, Grandma and Uncle Rod
are always super early.
I predicted the Love family would be late,
but I was off by a factor of around a lot.
Hey, we hit a dead end.
I'm sure that old building
wasn't in the way last time, right?
Uh, yup, must have been one of those
brand-new old buildings, hey, Bill?
Yay! Family picnic!
Huh? But what happened to the food?
Well, love, your uncle
and your grandpa happened.
I'm sorry, Benny Boy.
Well, if you Loves had
gotten yourselves here early for once
Yup, it's pack up time already.
Ready to go, folks?
-[Angie laughing] Whoo-hoo! Yeah!
Hey, Benny. Hey, hey, you coming
to the fireworks tomorrow night?
The fireworks are tomorrow?
That's awesome!
What's the big deal? It's just a bunch
of random colors in the sky.
-I love fireworks!
-Me, too.
We'll absolutely, uh, definitely
Uh, we'll totally be there.
Are you sure about that?
Last year, you got there
just as the last firework was going off.
There was more than one?
Don't worry, Ella.
This year's gonna be different.
Listen up, Love family.
I know everyone wants to see
the fireworks this year--
Yay! Fireworks!
So we gotta practice taking less time
to get ready, okay?
Say what? You're gonna
make us practice getting ready?
[chuckles] Benny, you just
can't hurry the Loves.
Uh, we like to do things, uh, right
and that takes time.
Sure, I, uh I get that,
but if we don't take so much time,
we might see more than, uh, one firework.
-[Ella] Yes! Whoo-hoo!
-[all laughing]
Okay, our practice run starts
[Bernadette] Oh, first,
I gotta make some snacks.
My mama said ♪
You can't hurry love
No, you just have to wait ♪
She said love don't come easy
It's a game of give and take ♪
You can't hurry love
No, you'll just have to wait ♪
And I have to get the car ready.
You can't hurry love ♪
Hmm, which one, Bonnie?
You gotta trust
Give it time ♪
No matter how long it takes ♪
[funky music playing]
[sniffs] Oh!
But how many heartaches must I stand ♪
Before I find a love
To let me live again ♪
Right now the only thing
That keeps me hanging on ♪
When I feel my strength ♪
Yeah, it's almost gone ♪
I remember Mama said ♪
You can't hurry love
No, you just have to wait ♪
She said, "Trust, give it time" ♪
No matter how long it takes ♪
[Ben] And done.
So all up, getting ready to go took us,
um, five hours and 13 minutes?
That's not so bad.
Not bad?
We need serious help.
ABC, easy as one, two, three.
[Skywriter laughing]
Uh, what are you doin', Dancing Machine?
You said you wanted to know
how to get organized faster.
Well, when I was a factory robot,
I learned how to do the things
in the right order.
So you can go faster
and you don't forget anything. Dig?
Yeah, yeah! That's what we need to do.
[chuckles] Hey, Benny-Bun.
I've been practicing my own fireworks.
Wanna see?
Uh, one second, Skywriter.
I'm gettin' all this down.
There. Now, watch how fast
I pop myself back in one piece.
[chuckling] Listen, Benny Boy,
if you wanna get there on time,
my advice is to drive real fast.
Check it out. Don't you just love the ones
that are like sparkly confetti?
Oops. That's real crazy.
But I kind of like it.
This is all great. Thanks, guys.
This is it, everyone.
Just, um, follow my checklist
and we'll be at the fireworks in no time.
-Family picnic blanket.
Bonnie's outfit.
Check. Today, she's a ballerina.
I got the vase and toothpaste.
Uh, not on the list, Dad.
Oh, okay. Check.
T-minus ten minutes
to departure, everybody.
Let's stay focused.
-Pie in the pie box.
-[Bernadette] Check.
-Beverages in the cooler?
-[Bill] Check.
Food for Harmony?
Oh, oh, check.
[Ella laughing] Ooh.
Hey, Angie.
Uh, you do realize the fireworks
aren't in the daytime, right?
We'll save you guys a spot.
[Rod] Hmm-mmm.
-[horn honking]
-[Rod] Huh?
Oh, would you look at that?
The Love family might even beat us there.
Yeah, that could happen,
when pigs fly, that is.
[all laugh]
Oh, uh, sorry, forgot the second pie.
[tires screech]
[Bernadette panting]
[Bill] Calm down, Ella. I'm getting
Bonnie's firefighter outfit now.
[Bernadette] I'll get the picnic blanket.
Wait, uh, wait,
we packed it already. Phew.
Now we're behind schedule.
Dad, can't we drive faster?
That wouldn't be safe, Ben.
But we can take
a trusty Bill Love shortcut.
-[Bill] Hold on.
-Look out!
-[tires screeching]
Harmony, what are you doing
this far from home?
Just go, Dad. She'll be fine.
-No. We have to take her with us.
Well, at least there's nothing left
to go wrong.
[all screaming]
-[tires screeching]
-[all screaming]
I don't believe in curses,
but there's no other explanation.
Uh, sorry, kids.
We're not gonna make it.
No fireworks? Not even one?
[sighs] I tried, Mom.
I really tried.
Benny, honey, let me tell you something
that your grandma used to say to me.
Whatever happens,
as long as we're together,
we're havin' a good time, okay?
Yeah. Let's have the picnic anyway.
But it's all yucky here, Benji.
Dad, isn't this
the back of the, uh, museum?
Wow, I can't remember
the last time I was up here.
This is so cool.
[Ella] Family picnic!
Yeah! [laughing]
Wait, where's Ben?
Sorry, forgot, uh, the cups.
Bonnie's a bit sad
'cause she missed the fireworks.
Aw. Me, too, sweetpea.
[fireworks whistling]
Fireworks. I thought we missed 'em.
[Ella laughing]
[chuckles] I guess
they were running late, too.
Yeah, I guess.
I actually thought the Loves
were gonna make it this time.
[sighs] Oh, well
Sometimes, there's more important things
than being on time, huh?
A, B, C, it's easy

-One, two, three
-Sing a simple melody ♪
-Do, re, mi, A, B, C
