[sound of water running]
[radio: Well it looks like a fantastic morning for an Earth Day parade]
[radio: Traffic is heavy though-]
Honey, I really don't want to be late! I have a tee time at 11. Can we take two cars?
Ok! Two cars it is!
Breakfast in five!
[sound of water running] Three. Four. Fiii- [grunts]
Hacha ya ra ra rah.
Come on Peter. I've told you a million times, I like the shower to warm up.
Don't turn it off!
And that costume is not going to fly!
Your mom's going to be mad!
Oh no Mister Man. You are not wearing that to the Earth Day parade.
Yeah, but you're not Lesster the Solar Powered Whatever.
You are Mother Earth and- what have you done with your shoes?
Here. Here, put this-
Ok! Peter. Listen. I want you to do the whole parade.
It's really important. There's going to be newspapers there and television-
Mmm. And you're going to be the cutest little mother ever.
Maybe you'll even get your picture in the paper!
Wouldn't that look great on your school applications?
Peter, stop it!
That makes it spill. I've told you a million times already. A regular mug doesn't fit in the hybrid's cup holder.
Now sit! And eat!
It's gonna be a scorcher.
Oh Ray. Would you uh- sandwiches.
Oh yeah, got it.
Hey! [whistle] Anyone feed Tucker today?
[Mother offscreen:] Did it.
Alright, that's enough. Come back here, sit down, and focus.
You got a big job ahead of you. Don't you want to save the planet?
Oh honey, that is so wasteful. Here-
You can use this.
I'll do it.
Let me just do it.
I'm going to go cool off the cars. They were out all night.
Alright. Oh wait! Wait. Take this.
Ok. Come on. The Earth needs you.
[gasp] Spin for me. Let's see.
Oh you look great!
Ok, ready to load up?
Oh shoot, I forgot the sandwiches. Buddy, can you go back-
Hoooooo haaaaaa hah-yah!
Wuuu cha yah!
What's he doing in there?
I don't know. I'm worried. He's just not getting this whole planet thing.
And who's Lesster?
Oh it's Less-ter. Less-ter the solar powered superhero.
Look! Look at him. He's out of costume again.
He just can't focus on the issues at hand.
Maybe we should get him tested again.
Mother: Peter, this is serious. The Earth is in trouble, we really need to get the word out.
We have to take big steps.
Peter: You mean like turning off the water?
Mother: No. No honey, you're not paying attention. Take off the googles.
Big things, like make the government sit up and take notice. They need pass laws.
There needs to be ordiances. Because unless all of usÖ.
