Summary

Plum makes up her own silly rules after being scolded for not following rules that she didn't agree with.

Episode Review

One nice, sunny day a group of Berrykins are heading to the pond to go on a picnic on the other side of it. They find the ferry, having floated away from the dock and try to pull it back in. Someone forgot to tie the rope after using it, so the Berrykins use a handmade raft from their lunch items to get to the boat. Two get stuck in the muck at the bottom of the pond and in their attempts at helping - the rest get stuck. 

Luckily, Strawberry forgot to pack them the dessert she made and arrives just in time to help save the Berrykins. She gets the boat back to the shore and sends the Berrykins on their way before spotting a purple cellphone. She grabs it and heads off, bumping into both Orange and Plum on their way to Blueberry's book meeting. Strawberry hands over the phone and brings up what happened. Plum was sure she had tied it, so she doesn't really care all that much as Strawberry reminds her that the rule is to tie it with two knots. Plum makes a joke before stating that the rules Lemon made were useless, then heads over to Orange's place to mail out some invitations.

Jadeybug is impressed not only by the number of invitations but that Plum wants to send them through Extra Special Super Urgent Ultra Fast Delivery. Which means she can use the special stamp.

Sceduale
Everyone is pleased by the invitations, except for Strawberry and Blueberry, since Blueberry had already signed up to use the Cafe that berry night. Strawberry assures her that it will still be her night and wonders if Plum forgot to sign up, or just didn't check. Strawberry knows she has to be fair, so while she feels bad, she goes to deliver the bad news.

As she arrives, Strawberry explains what happened and informs Plum of the error. She never signed up to use the stage and it's being used that night, so she can't even sign up now. Plum tries to bargain with Strawberry to get the night, but Strawberry refuses - saying that it is against the rules. Blueberry followed them so it is only fair. Before going, she apologizes and offers to modify Plum's invitations instead, but she angrily asks her to leave.

Over at Lemon's Salon, Orange is talking with Raspberry about the new joke invitations. Strawberry reveals that Plum was being serious though, but nobody suspects her of doing it out of revenge; but it is clear the rules were made up on the spot. They include:

  1. Wear a yellow hat.
  2. Knock three times.
  3. Guess the password.
Despite Strawberry's warning, Lemon, Raspberry, and Mr. LongFace arrive for their dance lesson and are forced
Annoyed
to knock and guess the passwords, but are turned down for not having yellow hats. Leaving them to be rather upset and annoyed by the sudden rule change.

That evening, everybody notices that Plum didn't show up for book club. Strawberry calls Plum to check up on her, but Plum claims she is just too busy with dance practice to show up.

The next day Strawberry goes to see Plum to try to get her to stop being so foolish and let go of the grudge. But she finds out that Raspberry, Lemon, and Mr. LongFace made up their own silly rules in order to get back at her. So Strawberry proceeds to hold an emergency meeting and calls them over, explaining that this is only making matters worse and its not fair having to make Plum due such silly things, despite her making them do them as a means of revenge.

However, this ends up aggravating everybody else. So they try to enforce the rules on everyone instead of just Plum. But after a while of being avoided all together, Raspberry, Lemon, and Mr. LongFace dismiss the bad rules and are quickly forgiven. Strawberry is happy, but without Plum understanding the error of her way, it's just not going to fix everything. And so, Plum goes to deliver her new invitations but everyone refuses them, due to the silly new rules. Plum, desperate enough now then rids of them, but only for that night.

Shock
That following evening, a break is held and everyone decides to get a drink and just enjoy the snacks when Plum notices puncture marks in the floor. While observing them, she realizes they came from Jadeybug's heels and she criticizes her, stating that everybody knows it's against the rules to wear anything with a heel in the studio.

Jadeybug tells her that she got rid of all the rules though, so she didn't know that she wasn't allowed to wear them, as she never really understood why that rule was there but now she does. She feels bad and takes them off, and in this moment Plum realizes that there are reasons for some rules. Jadeybug and Strawberry offer to help Plum refinish the floor to let her continue, causing her to express surprise. She was acting pretty mean and rude to everyone, and she has indeed learned from this - which makes Strawberry just as happy.

This lesson has apparently stuck, as shown when Plum has to remind others to tie at least two knots with the rope attached to the boat when bringing it back to the dock. 

Lessons
