´╗┐Two puppets, a boy named Howie and his monkey named Baboo, sit on the grass and watch a bee fly over a flower. They watch the sky change from day to night. Then they fly to space in a rocket. They rotate their heads as they watch clothes spin in a dryer. Then they watch a snail crawl on a big leaf and then they stand outside in the rain sheltered by an umbrella. The sky turns sunny again and a rainbow appears as Howie and Baboo take a hot air balloon ride.

The title of the show reads "Now you know."

The name of the episode reads "How does a subway work?"

(SIGHS)

Dressed as detectives, Howie and Baboo walk through a tunnel.

Howie says WE'VE BEEN WALKING
THESE TUNNELS FOR HOURS.
OH, I WISH THERE
WAS A FASTER WAY.

Baboo says OH, HEY, HEY LOOK.

Howie says WHERE YOU GOING?
HEY WAIT FOR ME.

Baboo spots a mine cart and says OH, WHOA.

Howie says WHOA.

Howie says THIS IS GREAT.
OH, THIS'LL MAKE
THE TRIP GO FASTER.
ALL ABOARD!
(CHUCKLES)

They hop on and drive the cart.

(CHUCKLES)

Howie says OH, HERE COMES A HILL.
(CHUCKLES)

They come out to their backyard and say WHOA.
(CHUCKLES)
(BOTH LAUGH)

Howie says WHOA WOW.
WOULDN'T IT
BE COOL IF WE HAD
AN UNDERGROUND TRAIN
THINGIE JUST LIKE THAT?

Baboo says MMHMM.

Howie says HEY, WAIT A SECOND.
A SUBWAY IS
JUST LIKE THAT.

Baboo says YES, IT IS.

Howie says YOU EVER WONDER
HOW SUBWAYS WORK.

They turn to each other.

Howie says ARE YOU THINKING
WHAT I'M THINKING?

Baboo says UH HUH.

Howie says TIME TO PUT OUT
A QUESTION ALERT!
YEAH!

Howie hits his watch. A question mark appears.

Howie says TO THE SECRET
HEADQUARTERS!
(IMITATES IN GIBBERISH)

Howie says HANG ON, BABOO.

Baboo says OKAY.

Howie pushes the cart and says WOOOOO!

At the tree house, Howie sits at the computer and says OH I CAN'T
WAIT TO SEE
WHO ANSWERED
THE QUESTION ALERT BABOO.

Baboo says OH YEAH.

Howie says HEY.
WOULD YOU LIKE TO
PUSH THE BUTTON?

Baboo says WHO ME?
NO, NO, NO, YOU PRESS.

Howie says OH COME ON,
BABOO YOU DO IT.

Baboo says OH NO,
YOU PRESS THE BUTTON.

Howie says OH I'VE DONE IT BEFORE.
YOUR TURN.

Baboo says NO, NO, NO, NO.

Howie says NO NOT GONNA PUSH IT.

Baboo says OKAY.

Baboo pushes the button.

Children appear on a split screen and say HI HOWIE. HI BABOO.

Howie says HI THERE QUESTIONEERS.

Baboo says HELLO.

Howie says THANKS SO MUCH FOR ANSWERING
THE QUESTION ALERT.
TODAY'S QUESTION IS
HOW DOES A SUBWAY WORK?

Baboo says CLICKITY CLACK
CLICKITY CLACK.

A boy in a red T-shirt says WITH ITS ENGINE, CHOO CHOO.

A girl in a light pink T-shirt says CAUSE THERE'S
TRAIN TRACKS ON THE BOTTOM.

A boy in a deep blue sweater says AND IT HAS SOME WHEELS.

A boy in a striped T-shirt says THE SUBWAY USES ELECTRICITY
TO MOVE FORWARD.

A boy with a Mohawk hair cut says WITH AN ENGINE
AND ELECTRICITY
AND GASOLINE.

A girl in a floral dress says THE TRACKS LIKE
SKATES ON THE SUBWAY.
SO INSTEAD OF FALLING THROUGH
INTO A DEEPER TUNNEL
THEY JUST GLIDE.

Howie says OH, THOSE WERE SOME
REALLY AWESOME ANSWERS.

Baboo says YES, THEY WERE.

Howie says HMM, I WONDER IF THERE'S
AN EXPERT OUT THERE
WHO CAN HELP US WITH
TODAY'S QUESTION?

Baboo says I WONDER.

Joe pops up and says HI GUYS, HOW'S IT GOING?

Joe has short gray hair and a goatee and he wears glasses, a white shirt, and a striped red tie.

Howie says HEY LOOK IT'S JOE.
JOE KNOWS
ALL ABOUT SUBWAYS.
HI JOE.

Baboo says HI.

Joe says I HEAR YOU WANT TO
KNOW HOW SUBWAYS WORK.

Howie says OH, WE SURE DO.

Joe says WHY DON'T YOU COME
DOWN TO THE SUBWAY YARD
AND I'LL SHOW YOU?

Howie says DO YOU HEAR THAT, BABOO?
WE'RE GOING TO RIDE
IN THE SUBWAY.
AWESOME!

Baboo says YEAH, OH BOY!

Howie says HEY WAIT FOR ME.

They now meet Joe at the subway yard.

Howie says HI JOE.

Joe says HI GUYS.
WELCOME TO THE SUBWAY YARD.

Howie says WOW. COOL.
OH LOOK AT ALL
THE NEAT SUBWAY TRAINS.

Joe says YES, THIS IS WHERE WE
PARK THE SUBWAY TRAINS
WHEN THEY'RE NOT WORKING.
WOULD YOU LIKE
TO SEE ONE?

Howie says I WANT TO
SEE THAT ONE.

Baboo says THAT ONE IS A SHINY ONE.

Howie says YEAH, YEAH, YEAH
THE SHINY ONE.

Joe says LET'S GO AND FIND OUT.

Howie says OH HO ALRIGHT.
WHOA,
THIS IS SO COOL.
(MIMICS IN GIBBERISH)

Joe says YES, THEY ARE HOWIE.
SUBWAY TRAINS ARE
A SPECIAL TYPE OF TRAIN
THAT RUN IN SOME
BIG CITIES.

Howie says DO THEY ALWAYS RUN
UNDERGROUND, JOE?

Joe says SOME RUN UNDERGROUND
AND SOME RUN ABOVE GROUND.
AND THEY MOVE MILLIONS
OF PEOPLE ALL OVER THE CITY.

At the control cabin, Howie says SO IS THIS WHERE YOU CONTROL
THE SUBWAY TRAIN FROM?

Joe says THIS IS IT.
THIS IS WHERE I
MAKE THE TRAIN GO
AND WHERE I MAKE
THE TRAIN STOP.
YOU WANT TO
GO FOR A RIDE?

Howie says YEAH, SURE!
LET'S GO,
LET'S GO, LET'S GO!

Joe says THEN LET'S GO.

Howie says WHOA, THIS IS AWESOME.

Baboo says IS AWESOME!

Howie says HEY WHAT ARE THOSE
LIGHTS IN THE TUNNELS.
ARE THEY LIKE TRAFFIC LIGHTS?

Joe says GREAT OBSERVATION, HOWIE.
THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT THEY ARE.
ALL SUBWAY SYSTEMS
HAVE A PLACE
CALLED TRANSIT
CONTROL CENTRE.
OUR FRIENDS IN
THE CONTROL CENTRE
TELL US WHEN TO GO,
TO STOP
AND TO SLOW DOWN.

Howie says DOES RED MEAN STOP
AND GREEN MEAN GO?

Joe says THAT'S EXACTLY
WHAT THEY MEAN.

Howie says WOW.
SO HOW DOES THE SUBWAY
MOVE FORWARD LIKE THIS?

An animation shows how the subway runs.

Joe says THE SUBWAY RIDES ON RAILS
JUST LIKE A REGULAR
TRAIN WOULD,
EXCEPT THERE'S A THIRD RAIL
NEXT TO THE TWO MAIN RAILS.
THE SUBWAY HAS A LITTLE
DEVICE CALLED THE SHOE
THAT CONNECTS
TO THE THIRD RAIL
TO GET ELECTRICITY
TO THE TRAIN
TO MOVE IT FORWARD.

Howie says OH, I SEE.

Joe says YES, HOWIE.
SUBWAYS ARE A GREAT WAY
OF MOVING A LOT OF PEOPLE
IN A LARGE CITY.
IT MEANS LESS CARS
ON THE ROADS
WHICH MEANS
LESS TRAFFIC.

Howie says HEY, I NEVER
THOUGHT OF THAT.

Baboo says THAT'S A GOOD IDEA.

Howie says SO BASICALLY A SUBWAY
USES ELECTRICITY
THAT IT GETS FROM
A THIRD RAIL
NEXT TO THE MAIN RAILS
TO MOVE IT FORWARD.

Joe says YOU GOT IT HOWIE.

Howie says OH, AWESOME.
THANKS AGAIN FOR TAKING US
FOR A RIDE TODAY JOE.

Baboo says THANK YOU!

Joe says MY PLEASURE.

Howie turns to the camera and says HOW ABOUT YOU?
NOW DO YOU SEE
HOW A SUBWAY WORKS?
GREAT!
WELL NOW YOU KNOW!
(REPEATS IN GIBBERISH)

Music plays.

A song goes ASK, ASK,
ASK ASK A QUESTION.
FIND, FIND,
FIND FIND AN ANSWER.
NOW, NOW, NOW NOW,
NOW NOW YOU KNOW.
CONCLUSION.
ASK, ASK, ASK ASK
A QUESTION.
FIND, FIND,
FIND FIND AN ANSWER.
NOW, NOW, NOW NOW,
NOW NOW YOU KNOW.

Howie says NOW YOU KNOW!

Riding on the subway, Howie says AND REMEMBER,
YOU CAN'T GET AN ANSWER
UNLESS YOU ASK
A QUESTION.
SO KEEP ASKING
QUESTIONS, 'KAY?
DON'T YOU JUST LOVE
RIDING ON THE SUBWAY BABOO?

Baboo says I LOVE IT.

Music plays as the end credits roll.
