Summary

Arthur is thrilled that a weekend of fly-fishing with his dad means no D.W. for two days—but then a change of plans forces them to include her.

Plot

The episode opens with Arthur and David going to the new science museum. D.W. wants to go too, but Arthur refuses, saying only he and David are going. But Jane made them take D.W. with them, because Kate's sick and Jane needs some work to be done. At the museum, D.W. becomes scared and wants to see a unicorn exhibit instead. Her father goes with her, much to Arthur's disappointment.

David notices how upset Arthur is, and he offers to take him to Whale Lake on the weekend to teach him how to fly-fish.

He promises D.W. that he will take her where she wants to go the weekend afterward. Unfortunately, there is a change when he gets a phone call and discovers he has to work next weekend. Arthur is okay with this, until D.W. points out that it's not fair how she doesn't get next weekend while Arthur has this weekend and the other weekend that David not going to work. Arthur and David realize she is right and the  plans cause him to take everyone to Whale Lake. D.W. wants to go fishing, but her father refuses saying he's only teaching Arthur to fish. When teaching Arthur how to fly-fish, things go wrong when Arthur's hook repetitively gets caught on a tree while casting. When he successfully does so, he drops his rod in the water, and Arthur falls and sprains his ankle while trying to get it.

When Arthur is forced to stay at camp, his dad takes D.W. fishing. Much to Arthur's surprise, D.W. actually caught fish, thanks to her Mary Moo Cow CD.

It rains the next day, and Arthur and his father wear ponchos to try to catch fish. When they get back, they learn that D.W.'s Mary Moo Cow CD caused other fish to leap out of the water, much to Arthur's dismay.

When Arthur returns to the lake, his dad tells him he did a nice thing by being nice to D.W. When they are about to leave, Arthur spots the legendary whale in the lake that his dad always wanted to see. D.W. is upset that she didn't see the whale, but she catches a glimpse of it as they drive away, and remarks "Wow".
