[S2E9] Riding For A Fall

In their dream-world adventures, Bingo and Floppy find the planet Uranus. Bingo feels it soft and cuddly, and lies on it like a bed, pulling the planet's surface beside her like a blanket. In truth, she ends up in her parents' room between Bluey and Bandit, and her lying and tugging on the blanket, taking Bluey and Bandit's share of it. So begins a tug-of-war between the freezing Bluey and Bandit as they pull the blanket for themselves and in process tosses and turns Bingo around. Bingo, however, feels overjoyed in her dream, as if the planet's surface rises and falls, rolling herself around as a laughing little fellow. Eventually the Blue Heelers pull the blanket simultaneously, launching Bingo in the air.

[S2E9] Riding For A Fall

Yet just as all that Bingo feels is feelings of sadness of loss, she turns around and finds an unusually uplifting sight: a comet riding at supersonic speed, carrying Bingo in a beeline to the Sun. As she jumps off the comet and lands on the closest planet to it, Mercury, she bears witness to another magnificent sight. She sees the Sun itself and all its greatness and warmth; as warm as the hug of her mother who came all the way from her sister's bed. In the midst of the comfort, though, Bingo looks back on her shattered Earth. She says to the Sun, "I have to go, I'm a big girl now." The Sun replies, in the sound of her loving mother, "Remember I'll always be her for you, even if you can't see me. Because I love you." Bingo is once again filled with joy, worthy of a small tail wag. At the same time, Chilli tucks her Red Heeler daughter again, smiling in solace, as she walks back to her own bedroom.

The doctor asks to see the other cosmonaut, so he is brought to his fallen colleague, who had been burnt severely. The American astronauts offer to help carry him, but Tsukanov tells them that they would not touch him, while his voice cracked.

In a flashback at school, the classes are dismissed, and Buster and Francine ask Arthur if he wants to go bike riding, but he turns down the offer because he has to take the bus to the public pool for swimming lessons. His mom couldn't drive him because she attended D.W's school play, where D.W. played the mashed potatoes in the pageant of foods. Francine and Buster stare at Arthur in horror, but Arthur says taking the bus will be fine. They then tell him stuff about the bus that terrifies Arthur. Buster claims he heard a story of a man who got on a bus, that just kept continuously going. In one of Arthur's daydreams, he thinks he's on the same bus and asks the bus driver when the next stop is, saying that he is supposed to be at his swimming lesson. The driver tells him they don't make any stops, and Arthur says that's impossible. Everyone on the bus turns into aliens, while the bus transforms into a spaceship and flies off. Francine says she heard that story, and that it was actually in a movie. She agrees with Arthur, saying he will be fine, but warns him about a kid who couldn't leave the bus because he didn't have the money to pay his fare. In another daydream, Arthur imagines being stuck on the bus when he is at least 48 years old and his clothes are wrecked. The bus arrives, and Buster and Francine give their last goodbyes before it leaves. As Arthur takes a seat, a woman in one row of seats down winks at him, and Arthur began to read a book about squids. He begins to get exhausted and falls asleep, sleeping through the bus pulling in at the bus stop across the street from the public pool- the one that Arthur was to get off at.
