The episode begins with Didi working on a jigsaw puzzle
"Pop, I thought you were reading the kids a story!"
"I am; books on tape. Never been easier to be a grandpa!"
"But Pinocchio paid no attention to Gepetto's warning."
"He told a lie, and behold, his nose grew larger." (slide whistle) "Turn the page."
"And when he told another lie, his nose grew larger still." (slide whistle) "Turn the page."
"This is a really good story!"
"I especially like the 'Turn the page' part. That always takes me by surprise!"
Angelica is bored of the story, so she decides to leave
"What you doin', Aunt Didi?"
"Oh, I'm just finishing up a jigsaw puzzle I've been working on since before Tommy was born."
"No! No, no, no, Angelica. This isn't for you to play with."
"Hey, Angelica, can you help us? The book broke."
"Angelica, that's my Mommy's! I don't think you're opposed to play with it!"
"Now, let's see. I think this piece goes right here!"
Angelica wrecks Didi's jigsaw puzzle
"Angelica! What did you do?"
"It wasn't me, it was, um, um... spike!
"But don't be mad, Aunt Didi. He's just a poor, dumb doggie."
"Um, you didn't tell the truth, Angelica. You broke the rickshaw puzzle, not Spike!"
"Yeah, that's right. You told a lie, and your nose is gonna get bigger and bigger, just like Pistachio!"
"And nextly, real people's noses don't get bigger when they lie!"
That night, a mosquito bites Angelica's nose...
...causing a red bump to form on it
The next morning, Angelica sees the bump on her nose
"Hello, Sir or Madame. I am visiting your house, apartment, or hotel to ask you to participate in my club, group or organization. What I..."
"Pops, if you're selling those chocolate bars for the Wombat lodge again, I can't buy any! I'm on the new shark cartilage and wheatgrass diet."
"What are you doing, Angelica? Those aren't yours!"
"It wasn't me! It was, it was, uh... Fluffy!"
"But don't be mad, she's just a poor, dumb kitty."
Charlotte punishes Fluffy
Angelica breaks Charlotte's vase
"Oh no! My Louis Guitores vase! It's irreplacable!"
"It was Tommy! Tommy and the babies, they did it!"
"But don't be mad at them, Mommy, they're just poor, dumb babies."
"Yeah, we didn't break nothin'!"
"Yeah, then your head's gettin' smaller!"
The French Lady next door buys all of Lou's chocolates
"Oh, lookie here, you've got quite a bump!"
"You haven't been lying now, have you? Huh, my little Pinocchio?"
Angelica sees her swollen nose in the hubcap of Charlotte's car
"This stupid nose is just gonna get bigger and bigger! It's never gonna stop!"
"Maybe you could just push your nose in, like a button!"
"Or maybe you could let it get really, really big, and keep your cookies in it!
Or maybe, just maybe, you could stop tellin' those big fat lies!"
"Okay, let's try this. Phil?"
"Who broke Tommy's Mommy's rickshaw puzzle?"
"Who eated your Grandpa's candy?"
"And maybe I tasted an eensy bit."
"Who broke that Louis Outdoors Guys flower thingy?"
Angelica sees her swollen nose in Lou's fun house mirror
"I just gotta tell the truth! The real truth! I busted up Aunt Didi's rickshaw puzzle!"
