(DW is at a gymnastics class trying to prove to her friends that she can really do a cartwheel)

  • DW: Oh yeah?! Well you just watch! (walks over to the balance beam)
  • Emily: Wait DW! (gasps)
  • Tommy Tibble: Look, she's gonna do it!
  • Tibble Twins: (grunt as they pull off their shoes)
  • DW: (stretches) One two three, one two three.
  • Emily: But DW, you could really get hurt!
  • Tibble Twins: (laugh as they walk over to the balance beam)
  • DW: Okay, lift me up!
  • Tibble Twins: (lift DW and grunt) 
  • Timmy Tibble: If you don't make it DW, can we have your toys?
  • DW: (balances carefully)
  • Tommy Tibble: She's too scared to do it!
  • DW: WHOA!
  • Everyone: (gasps)
  • Timmy Tibble: Yeah, she's gonna chicken out!
  • DW: WHOAAAAAAA! AM NOT! (nearly loses her balance) WHOAA!

(TITLE CARD)

(Back at home, Arthur and DW are watching the Olympics on TV)

  • Announcer: The Bulgarians take the final lap at 55 miles per hour! I wouldn't want to fall off the back of that, Bob!
  • Arthur: Cool! That's as fast as a car!
  • DW: Big deal, anybody can ride a sled! (changes the channel to a little kid's show) Oooooh! Pretty horsie!
  • Arthur: HEY! PUT THE OLYMPICS BACK ON!
  • DW: NO WAY, SPORTS ARE BORING! (now Arthur and DW get into a remote control fight as the channels alternate)
  • Arthur: ARE NOT!
  • DW: ARE TOO! (the remote control stops on a gymnastics exhibition at the Olympics)
  • Announcer #2: A perfect combo on the balance beam! It looks like Tina Trampolina will be bringing home a gold medal!
  • DW: Wow.... MOM! (walks out of the living room)
  • Arthur (in disbelief): Here we go again!
  • DW: I'll get really strong! And when I win the gold medal, I'll do cereal commercials!
  • Jane: I don't know DW.
  • DW: Please Mom! I'll be so rich that you and Dad will never have to work again!
  • Jane: DW, remember when you said that you wanted to play T-ball more than anything?

(Flashback sequence: DW tries to hit the ball on the tee, but misses multiple times)

  • DW: I could only hit balls that move.
  • Jane: And when you wanted to be a ballerina?

(Another flashback sequence: All of the students are balancing on the pole, except for DW who uses a stool. The instructor takes away the stool.)

  • DW: I have weak knees.
  • Jane: And how about the violin lessons?

(In this flashback sequence, the students are playing properly on their violins, except for DW who strums her violin like a guitar)

  • DW: I could've been really good if they didn't make me use that stick.
  • Jane: DW, you wanted to do all those things, but you didn't want to practice. Now why is this any different?
  • DW: Because I really REALLY want to do this one. Besides, Mom, I'm already good at jumping.
  • Jane: (thinks about her decision, then sighs) Alright! Huh?
  • DW: (hugs her mother) Oh, thank you Mom!

(At the gymnastics class, we see the Tibble Twins jump on the trampoline while the other kids are doing different exercises)

  • DW: (gasps) THE TIBBLES! HIDE ME!
  • Jane: Oh, I'm sure your teacher can handle them.
  • Tibble Twins: (laugh and holler while jumping)
  • Ms. Morgan: (blows her whistle)
  • DW: (scoffs) It's Emily and her nanny! I'm in the same class with "Ms. Perfect".
  • Jane: Now DW, just because she's smart, pretty, and very polite, doesn't mean she's perfect.
  • Emily: (says goodbye to her nanny in French and blows a kiss)
  • Jane: Well, it looks like you're about to start. I'll be in the waiting room. Don't try anything too fancy, okay?
  • DW: (walks over to the class, but stops and looks at the balance beam)

(Now DW has a daydream about herself competing in the Olympics)

  • Announcer: There's the pinwheel flip, with a frog kick follow through, and they're having tea dismount. AMAZING!

(the crowd cheers as the judges give 10's to DW. She receives the gold medal.)

  • Announcer: Well Bob, I guess it won't be long before we see that face on a box of Crunch Cereal.
  • Announcer #2: Yep! But let's not forget the runners up. Emily, uh, what's her name? Not quite perfect, gets the silver medal.
  • Medal Person: (yawns)
  • Announcer #2: And Timmy and Tommy Tibble receive the Bronze. Although everybody knows that they should've been disqualified.
  • Tibble Twins: (fight over the medals)

(Back in reality, DW immediately runs over to the balance beam and tries to get on)

  • Ms. Morgan: (blows whistle) OFF THAT BALANCE BEAM, YOUNG LADY!
  • DW: (falls off) Ow!
  • Ms. Morgan: This apparatus is not for beginners. We won't be using it for at least a year!
  • DW: A year?! But I can't wait that long! I'll be old by then!
  • Ms. Morgan: Then you better start practicing right away! We'll start with a somersault! (now the scene switches to the students learning how a somersault is done) Then you tuck your head and roll. And that's the somersault! Everyone find a partner!
  • Emily (to DW): Be my partner?
  • DW: (looks around) I guess so. (now she attempts to do the somersault, but lands flat on her back)
  • Emily: Pretty good, but next time grab your knees. Then you'll end up on your feet.
  • DW: For your information, I was doing a half sault! You're supposed to end up on your back. Your turn!
  • Emily: (performs the somersault correctly)
  • DW: All wrong! You didn't jump high enough! The roll was too slow and you didn't smile at the end!
  • Ms. Morgan: Emily, that was lovely! Keep up the good work! DW, next time, try holding your knees.
  • DW: (blushes)
  • Emily: I guess she didn't know you were doing a half sault.
  • DW: (growls)

(All of the students are doing handstands)

  • Ms. Morgan: Excellent posture! DW, try to keep your back straight like Emily's.
  • Emily: You think she'll teach us how to stand on the ceiling like that?
  • DW: (loses her balance) WHOA!

(Everyone falls down)

(Now Ms. Morgan demonstrates a cartwheel)

  • Ms. Morgan: When you finish the cartwheel, make sure you bring your feet together. It looks simple, but takes practice to get it right. Alright Edwin, ready?
  • Edwin: (gasps, then walks disappointedly to the mat. He then attempts to get his other hand over, but falls.)
  • Ms. Morgan: A brave attempt, Edwin. Try to break the fall with your hands. Next!
  • DW: (sees Emily stretching)
  • Emily: (stretches) One two three, one two three.
  • DW: (scoffs) Why bother!
  • Timmy Tibble: Where you going, DW?
  • Tommy Tibble: I'll bet I know where she's going! She's going to her mommy!
  • Timmy Tibble: Yeah, because she's afraid of doing a cartwheel!
  • DW: I AM NOT! I was just going to... to......
  • Ms. Morgan: Well Miss Read?
  • DW: (attempts to do the cartwheel, but falls off the mat)
  • Ms. Morgan: Not bad, but do try to stay on the mat.
  • Tibble Twins: (laugh)
  • Ms. Morgan: Next!

(At home, DW practices her cartwheel and wants her mom to see it)

  • DW: Mommy, look at me! Look at me, Mommy! Mommy? Are you going to watch me Mommy?!
  • Jane: Just a sec, DW. (puts a piece of clothing down) Okay, let's see it!
  • DW: (starts to do the cartwheel, but pauses) Don't watch, it's not ready yet!
  • Jane: (closes the dryer door)

(DW practices the cartwheel like crazy in her house)

  • DW: (cartwheels into her father) WHOA!
  • Dave: (grunts) OH MY GOSH!

(Now we see DW practice in the supermarket)

  • DW: (does the cartwheel, but knocks into items)
  • Supermarket Employee (over PA): Spill, aisle 5!
  • DW: (cartwheels into another aisle)
  • Supermarket Employee (over PA): Aisle 6!
  • DW: (runs and cartwheels into another aisle)
  • Supermarket Employee (over PA): Aisle 7?!
  • Jane: (gasps and runs over to the aisle. There are items all over the ground) DW!!!!!!!!!

(Back at gymnastics class, DW stretches out)

  • DW: One two three, one two three!
  • Ms. Morgan: Alright children, form a line! It's cartwheel time!
  • Kids: (cheer and run over to the mat)
  • Ms. Morgan: Remember, look before you leap! GO!
  • Edwin: (attempts the cartwheel again, but falls)
  • Ms. Morgan: Better, Edwin. But remember, two hands are better than one! Next!
  • DW: (attempts the cartwheel successfully without falling) I DID IT! I DID IT!
  • Ms. Morgan: Very nice, DW! Legs together on your finish!
  • Everyone: (cheers)
  • DW: Thank you! Thank you, really! Thank you! Thank you very much!
  • Emily: (Cartwheels from one end of the gymnasium to the other.)
  • Tibble Twins: (whistle)
  • Ms. Morgan: EMILY, SHOWING OFF IS VERY IMPOLITE!
  • DW: IT'S NOT FAIR!

(After class)

  • Emily: I'm sorry I showed off, DW.
  • DW: I could've done a better one, but I didn't want to. Cartwheels are for babies!
  • Emily: Well, I think they're kinda hard.
  • DW: Not as hard as doing a cartwheel on the balance beam. Bet you can't do that!
  • Emily: Neither can you.
  • DW: Oh yeah?! Well you just watch! (walks over to the balance beam)
  • Emily: Wait DW! (gasps)
  • Tommy Tibble: Look, she's gonna do it!
  • Tibble Twins: (grunt as they pull of their shoes)
  • DW: (stretches) One two three, one two three.
  • Emily: But DW, you could really get hurt!
  • Tibble Twins: (laugh as they walk over to the balance beam)
  • DW: Okay, lift me up!
  • Tibble Twins: (lift DW and grunt) 
  • Timmy Tibble: If you don't make it DW, can we have your toys?
  • DW: (balances carefully)
  • Tommy Tibble: She's too scared to do it!
  • DW: WHOA!
  • Everyone: (gasps)
  • Timmy Tibble: Yeah, she's gonna chicken out!
  • DW: WHOAAAAAAA! AM NOT! (loses her balance)
  • Everyone: (gasps)
  • DW: (screams)
  • Ms. Morgan: (blows her whistle multiple times as Emily and Jane rush in with her)
  • DW: (jumps into her mother's arms)
  • Jane: DW, WHAT WERE YOU DOING?!?!?!
  • DW: Oh Mom, I was just doing a cartwheel.
  • Jane: We'll discuss this on the way home, young lady! Now go put your shoes on!
  • Tibble Twins (sing): Miss Perfect, Goody Two Shoes, Told The Teacher, So She Wouldn't Lose!
  • DW: HEY! LEAVE HER ALONE!
  • Timmy Tibble: Her?!
  • Tommy Tibble: But she stopped you from doing your cartwheel!
  • DW: Maybe YOU TWO would like to do a cartwheel on the balance beam! Hmmmm?!
  • Timmy Tibble: (gasps) Did you hear something?
  • Tommy Tibble: Yeah, I think I hear Grandma calling us! Gotta go, bye!
  • Emily: Thanks DW, you're a real friend!
  • DW: Well, after all, you did save my life! Maybe... maybe you could teach me how to do a really good cartwheel?
  • Emily: Sure, but it takes a lot of practice!
  • DW: I'll practice! If you promise not to be so perfect!
  • Emily: It's a deal!

(On the car ride home.....)

  • Jane: And you could've hurt yourself very badly there DW!
  • DW: (looks out the window at some horseback riders)
  • Jane: DW, are you listening?
  • DW: I'm listening. I'll be careful.
  • Jane: Good!
  • DW: (continues to look at the horseback riders) Mommy?????
  • Jane: No DW, you're too young to take riding lessons.
  • DW: (imagines herself riding a horse) Oh please Mommy? I'll be really careful! Please? Please?! Pleeeeeease?!?!?!
