Lionel reads a newspaper article on how the San Fransico Giants clobberd the Chicago Cubs and asks Click to transport two Giants players out of the newspaper. But Leona thought they were real giants that said "FE FI FO FUM!" (like in "Jack and the Beanstalk") clobbering real cubs (like her and Lionel).

  • Busterfield: I suppose you can say that all this silliness was worth it because that little cub learned a good lesson. You can say it, but I won't.
  • Cleo: Leona, you really did think the Giants who clobbered the Cubs were the great, big scary fee-fi-fo-fum giants, didn't you?
  • Leona: Well, maybe.
  • Cleo: Mmm. Well, if you ever have a worry like that again, tell us. We'll help. Your father and I would never bring anything into the library that might hurt you or your brother.
  • Leona: Well, how do I know that? I've only known you for, what, four years.
  • Cleo: Well, now you know.
  • Leona: Now I know.
  • Leona: The giants are coming. They clobber cubs. What am I going to do? What am I going to do?
  • Lionel: How can a cub stop a parent from making the biggest mistake of his life?
