Welcome to my lab,

Mr. Rodriguez.

How was your flight?

Terrific! We could not

do this without you!

Thank you so much

for your cooperation.

Could you please

escort Mr. Rodriguez

up on the platform?

Thank you.

Dimitri, it's time.

Da. We are ready

for you, Doctor.

Oh, our time has

finally come, Dimitri!

Tonight, we crack

the code on baby language,

allowing adults to

communicate with their babies.

Please put Mr. Rodriguez

into the Demistifier.


Hello, Mr. Rodriguez.

Now, this will be over

before you know it.

Would you like me to hold that?

Thank you.

Now, please,

to get into Demistifier.

Dimitri, when the

Demistification is complete,

Mr. Rodriguez will be able to

speak the baby-monkey language

and understand the baby monkey!

Mr. Rodriguez will speak

fluent baby-monkey language!

Stand by for Demistification.


9, 8, 7, 6...

Subject looks OK.

Come on, come on, come on!

Demistifier running!

- 1...

- Ah!

Oh... So...

Doctor, he's practically naked!

Well, yes,

I can see that, Dimitri!


You know, I might be mistaken,

but it appears as if

Mr. Rodriguez believes

that he's a baby, too!

Is that what we wanted?

Well, no, Dimitri!

We wanted him to

understand baby language,

not to become one!

It's the complete opposite!

Please forgive me

for what I'm about to do.

Excuse me.


Come on!

Let the kids go by!

Mom, now that I'm gone...

Don't worry about tomorrow

'cause I'll be all right...

Come on through Fairfield,

the town that

never stops moving!

Keep it coming!

Here we go!

Taught me well

Now say goodbye

Don't look back

or you'll make me cry

Dad, you've been

my best friend...

Get your paper today!

Paper! Read it!

You taught me more

than a thing or two

Be strong while I'm away

Keep me in your thoughts

Tear 'em from

the Opposite Day

I love my job!

Opposite Day

It's only once in a lifetime

Day Opposite Day

Opposite Day

It happens once

in a lifetime...

I need you to go

to the supermarket.

Jack, I told you to go along,

and if the sales

go below 150, sell short.

I don't care what you say!

If the sales

go below 150, sell short!

Sometimes just

wanna be a kid

Can't do things

like my mommy did

Oh yeah...

I've got 30 minutes for lunch!

I need a cab! Taxi!

I'm walking here!

I'm walking here!

Now pay attention!

It's your move, Marv.

Keep it together till I'm back

from the Opposite Day...

You know, it makes no sense.

In school, they want us to play

on the playground and slide.

When I do it at home,

my parents go nuts.

You rubbed butter

on the banister

and slid down in

your underwear, Sammy.

Give me a break, Carla!

Like I'm gonna

walk down 20 steps

every time I want

a snack from the fridge!

What'd your parents do

when they found out?

They grounded me

for the rest of day.

Oh, that's so harsh!

That's nothing!

Last week, I threw ice cream

at my little sister.

Got no dessert for a week.

No dessert?

For a whole week?

Parents are so bossy!

All they wanna do is make rules!

And every chance they get,

they ground me.

For good reason.

If mom and dad let you do

whatever you wanted,

the house would be

wrecked by now.

Well, when I'm a parent,

I'm gonna let my kids do

whatever they want.

Sure, Sammy.

Hey, Carla, wanna trade games?

I'm still playing.

Today's Opposite Day,

which means you're not playing.

Today's so not Opposite Day!

You just made that up!

Well, you just said

it's not Opposite Day,

which means it is Opposite Day,

which means if you are

using the game,

you really aren't using the game

which means I can have it.
