(chuckles) it was written by charles malam and it's called "steam shovel." bring it out! beep, beep, beep, beep, beep... leona: hmm... i wonder what i should draw today. (gasps) yes! that's it! leona: a cement mixer is a kind of truck that makes concrete--
6:23 am
you know, the hard stuff that sidewalks and streets are made of. it has big wheels and a cab the driver sits in and a big round part where you pour in sand and stones and dry cement and water. it spins and spins to mix everything up so the concrete doesn't get all hard before you pour it out the back. then you cover it all with pink and purple stars. (giggling) i made that part up. very interesting. indeed. quack! chorus (singing): announcer: today's adventure... we find cliff hanger where we left him last, hanging from a cliff.
6:24 am
suddenly, cliff notices that a big construction project has started up in the valley below. wow! maybe they're building a skyscraper so tall i'll be able to jump onto the roof and ride the elevator down to freedom! say, fellas! you aren't by any chance building a tall skyscraper, are you? 'fraid not, pal. but let me know if there's anything else my crew can help you with. hmm. let me consult my survival manual. announcer: using his amazing decoding skills, cliff begins to read. (reading) say, guys, can you use your machines to get me off this cliff? well, i'm not sure the dump truck or the steam shovel will be much help.
6:25 am
but, this crane here, with the electric-powered magnetic lifter? it's got some promise. maybe. the magnetic lifter can only lift metal objects, and i'm not sure it can reach high enough, but we can try. don't worry about the metal objects. i just happen to have this large iron anvil here in my backpack. well, all right, then, let's give it a go. ♪ and that's why he's called cliff hanger! ♪ wow, that looks so much better without that big branch sticking through. it is better than michelangelo! and then we've got talc... hey, you did a great job! the skylight's all fixed, and the tree's gone.
6:26 am
yeah, i can't wait for mama to see it. did you just say $500? because... (shouting): duct tape!! (laughing) oh, excuse me. look, i found it! yeah, it's a little too late for that, cleo dear, but, uh, maybe you can help us with the bill. (screams) oh, i tell you. these darn glasses of mine. they keep falling off my face. oh. um, have you tried duct tape? well, good-bye. hey, thanks again for not charging us. well, you fixed my glasses. it was the least i could do. glad to help. duct tape-- it really can fix anything. yo, check it out. we're going surfing without a board, dudes! okay, because we're surfing between the lions' web site. okay! go to whoa!

6:38 am
but without my timer, how will i know when five minutes are up? we can use my clock. that only tells us what time it is now! yeah, but the hands do the same thing a timer does- they show how time passes. they do? matt: sure. when the hands move from one minute to the next they tell me one minute has gone by. i just figure the time on the clock when we start, and count forward five minutes. oh yeah? if we start cooking at 9:14, in five minutes it'll be-- 9:15, 9:16, 9:17, 9:18, 9:19! we stop cooking at 9:19! start cooking! digit: start watching your clock! jackie: all clear!

6:43 am
i can subtract! subtract what from what? i gotta know now! sorry. matt: well, since 9:43 is later than 9:27 to find the difference, i put the stop time on the top and subtract the start time from that. 9:43 minus 9:27 is... sixteen! we have sixteen minutes before the blizzard hits. i only need fifteen! cut the carrots! matt: oh, great! hungry penguins, just what we need! digit: hey, can't let my fellow birds go without. here you go, guys. jackie: we just have to slide down the rope to the ground, and we can get out of here and back to the show! fearless chef: (gulp) that is a long way down! inez: i've seen you cook in way more difficult situations than this. um, sometimes on the show, i uh, i have a stunt double.
6:44 am
jackie: you mean someone else does all that dangerous stuff for you? uh-huh. inez: how often? fearless chef: well, all the time. got'cha! i'm ready to frappe the puree! how much more time do i have? matt: it's 9:40! three minutes left till the blizzard hits us full force! digit: the salad will be done in two. send it down now! cooking is such hard work. chairman delicacy: chef hacker's fruit salad has arrived and it looks recklessly refreshing! ah ha, chef digit just beat the blizzard! a sweet and sour salad with special seaweed sauce!

6:46 am
digit: there's a lot about me you don't know, matty. i asked them to push us to volcano island! matt: woo-hoo! jackie: you've got to let us go, delete. it's not fair! you want to be fair, don't you? if i let you go, then the boss won't win the golden cyberchef award and he needs it for his magnitube thingie to stop motherboard! jackie: so that's why hacker wants that hat! fearless, we gotta get outta here! you're big and strong, bend open these bars! fearless chef: are you serious? i could pull a muscle doing that. i have to warm up first. inez: then break the lock! you can do it! fearless chef: gee, i... i'd like to, but my wrist is killing me. i hurt it flipping pancakes last week. jackie: oh, brother! this guy is hopeless. chairman delicacy: 47 minutes gone; just fifteen minutes to go! hacker: as your new champion, the golden cyberchef award will be safe with me.
6:47 am
buzz: boss! look! hacker: what? but how? nice try, hacker, but no chef's hat! digit: yeah, the didge is back and ready to make his famous cyber-souffle! we'll see whose souffle wins the day! hello? souffles-to-go? hello? hello?! arg! what is it, boss? my phone doesn't work! so much for the call anywhere from anywhere plan! i'll have to make my own souffle! digit: sugar. it needs sugar! now comes the hard part-- cooking it. the souffle has to cook for exactly 12 minutes. not a moment earlier or later! and we have to be very, very quiet. matt: why? digit: once the souffle is in the oven any loud noise will flatten it! matt: okay, we need to know what time it'll be
6:48 am
when 12 minutes have gone by. no biggie. what time does your watch say right now? right now it's 9:50. digit: so i'll just add twelve minutes to 9:50. and that gives me... 9:62! there's no such time as 9:62! there's not? no, there's not. (gasp) yoikes! now what do we do? i was gonna count forward on the clock. don't panic, okay? the clockface may be gone but we still have the minutes marked on this strip. oh, yeah. i see. it sorta looks like a ruler, but it measures time! right! we can use these marks to show the minutes in an hour. here's 9:30, 10:00 and 10:30. we put the souffle in at 9:50, which is right here
6:49 am
and count forward, five, ten minutes... now we're at 10:00. add two more minutes... and that takes us to... 10:02! that's why my addition was weird! these are telling time numbers not just plain old numbers! exactly! 9:62 is really one whole hour after 9:00, plus two minutes. the take out time is 10:02! all we have to do is wait and watch the clock till it's ten-o-two. except the clock is busted! shhh! but this one isn't! fearless chef: there's no way out. we're trapped. the fearless chef is history. jackie: does this guy ever stop? inez: jackie, give me your scrunchie! but i just got this one! you want to stay here forever with the fearless chef? here!
6:50 am
cool. jackie: ew! inez: got it! jackie: as matt would say, "she shoots, she scores!" inez: we're out of here! so you think it's safe to leave? digit: the souffle looks great! matt: the question is, will it get cooked before we do? digit and matt: the souffle! (pfffft) digit: it's caving in! maybe there's a way to put the air back into it, like fixing a flat tire! wait! there is a way. but i need to know exactly how much cooking time is left! matt: it's 9:56! the time we have left is the difference between the stop time, 10:02, and the start time, now, 9:56! i'll subtract it! 9:56 from 10:02 leaves... oh, boy! how can i take fifty-six minutes from two minutes?
6:51 am
