Ben:Excuse me! Gotta talk to my “Friend” here………

Barney:Isn’t it great Ben? I’m helping so many people find their calling *Laughs*

Ms White: You’re having trouble keeping your life together

Ben: You’re right

Ms White:You’re…...What?

Ben:You’re absolutely right………………..I’m reckless and don’t know when to ask for help and that’s exactly why I’m losing my home Saturday

Ms White:Oh my gosh….I-I’m really sorry

Ben:It’s alright………..All I can blame is myself I got 2 days to make money and there’s no way my boss is going to give me a raise

Ms White:..............I think I know a way to make some quick money. We’re having a country fair in the park tomorrow to celebrate Atlanta's country heros…...We need someone to cook chili and run the stand I really recommend taking this job

Mary:Are you really?

Ben:Come on! We haven’t seen it yet. How bad can it be?

*Fast forward to the end of the film where the couple’s face quickly turns to annoyed*

*A few seats down on the other hand has Barney standing near the seats watching the film closely while eating popcorn*

Voice from the film: You did it Cheery! You saved the rainbow


Ben and Mary:Thank god it’s over………...

*Ben and Mary walk of the theater*

Mary:I hate to say I told you so…...but

Ben:I know that film was terrible

Mary:Terrible is an understatement

Ben:Hey at least we have dinner to look forward to

Mary:If you don’t spaz out like earlier

Ben:I promise for the rest of the night I’ll stay right by your side

Mary:I’ll believe that when I see it,I’ll be in the car

*Mary leaves*

*Barney walks out humming*

Barney:What a great movie! Definitely a contender for best film of the year! So, how’d it go with you and Mary?

Ben:So far? Terrible

Barney:Oh I’m sure it’ll get better

*Barney and Ben leave*

*Scene transits to Canoli’s where the 3 are waiting for their tables*

*Barney notices the karaoke stage*

Barney:Ooohh Karaoke!...This gives me an idea *Laughs*

*Barney walks towards the stage*

*Mario walks in*

Mario:Hello I’m Mario I’ll be your waiter let me show you the way to your table

Mary:How’d you get a new job this fast Mario?

Mario:My uncle owns the restaurant

*Mario points to his uncle Mr Cannoli giving the death look at various waiters*

Mario:Don’t know how long I’m going to keep it tough he’s really strict

Ben:I can relate……

Mario:Have you worked for him?

Ben:No but I’ve worked with someone like him before

Mario:Respect, man.

*Mario leads him to a table that’s decently seated near the karaoke stage and hands them their menu*

Mario:I’ll be back to get your order

*Mario leave as Ben just notices that someone isn’t with them*

Ben:....Where’s Barney?

Mary:Who’s Barney?

Ben:Huh? Oh no one I’ll be right ba-

Ben:Right……….I’ll stay here

Mary:Good…….Now then what would you like to eat?

Ben:I don’t know I think I’d try the-

*Ben notices from the corner of his eye Barney in a purple tuxedo entering the stage*


*Mary looks at Ben*

Ben:.......These prices are ridiculous!

Mary:How gullible do you think I am?

Ben:When did you being gullible have to do with anything?

*Mary gasps*

Ben:Oh my god I’m so sorry that’s not what I meant

Barney:Ladies and Gentlemen, on behalf of Cannoli’s grand opening I’d like to invite all of you classy upstanding citizens to a old fashioned sing a long

*Barney elbows the karaoke machine as a jazz version of If All The Raindrops start’s up*

Barney:If all the raindrops were lemon drops and gumdrops Oh, what a rain that would be

*Ben tries to stand up*

Mary:Ben you promised

Barney:Standing outside with my mouth open wide Ah Ah-ah Ah Ah-ah Ah Ah-ah Ah If all the raindrops were lemon drops and gumdrops Oh, what a rain that would be

*We cut to one of the tables*

Restaurant goer 1:Is that a purple dinosaur?

Restaurant 2:Yes Yes it is

Barney:Standing outside with my mouth open wide

Restaurant 1:Eh why not?

Barney and the restaurant goers:Ah Ah-ah Ah Ah-ah Ah Ah-ah Ah

Barney:If all the snowflakes were candy bars and milkshakes Oh, what a snow that would be

*We go back to Ben’s table where Mario is taking the orders*

Mary:I’ll have the steak

Ben:I’ll have the gumdrops……..Er I mean the milkshakes….I’ll just have a salad

*Mario takes the menus and leaves*

*Ben looks at Mary nervously*

Ben:...How long is this song?

Barney:If all the raindrops were lemon drops and gumdrops Oh, what a rain that would be Standing outside with my mouth open wide

Barney and the left side of the restaurant:Ah Ah-ah Ah Ah-ah Ah Ah-ah Ah

Barney:If all the raindrops were lemon drops and gumdrops Oh, what a rain that would be

*Most of the customers get up and dance near the stage*

Barney:If all the snowflakes were candy bars and milkshakes Oh, what a snow that would be

*Mario walks out of the kitchen noticing the instrumental coming from the karaoke machine*

Mario:Is that thing on the fritz again?

*Mario takes a closer look at the stage as Barney magically appears*

Barney:With my mouth open wide

*Mario looks at Mr Cannoli who’s looking back at him not so happily*

Mario:This doesn’t look good…….

Barney:Oh, what a snow that would be

*We go back once again to the couple’s table where Ben is looking at the stage*

Mary:...........Fine go

*Ben runs up to the stage*

Barney:If all the raindrops were lemon drops and gumdrops Oh, what a rain that would be Standing outside with my mouth open wide

*Ben tries to get a closer view of the stage but the way get’s blocked*

Ben:Excuse me,Pardon

Barney:If all the raindrops were lemon drops and gumdrops Oh, what a rain that would Oh, what a Snow that would Oh, what a rain that would

Ben:Forget it


*Song ends*

*Ben goes back to the table*

Mary:Ben you’ve been acting like this  since the country fair is everything alright?

Ben:.....I- I can’t explain it

Mary:Then how do you expect me to help you?

*Mary grabs her purse*

Ben:Mary wait!

Mary:You know where to find me

*Mary leaves*

*Barney walks back*

Barney:Thank you! Thank you- Wait a minute! Where’s Mary?

Ben:I don’t want to talk about it

*Mario walks in*

Barney:Hi Mario

Mario:Hi I’m going to have to ask you guys to leave

Ben:What?!? Why?

*A flashback montage of Mario getting fired at various jobs (The last one revealing he was the one who was fired at Ben’s office job WAY back in the early parts of the film)*

Mario:Job security

Ben:I can’t believe this!

*Ben storms outside*

Barney:Oh dear……..It was great seeing you again Mario

Mario:.........Wish I could say the same for you.

*Barney walks out where Ben is trying to use his phone to call an Uber*

Barney:There you are Ben! You walked so fast out of there I could hardly keep up

Ben:There’s a good reason……….I was trying call an Uber ride so that I can pack for tomorrow…….Don’t follow me I want you out of my life

Barney:Come on Ben you don’t mean that

Ben:I mean every word. If it wasn’t because of you, then I still would have had the money from the fair job and Matthew would have had his original volcano project

Barney:But I didn’t break the volcano!

Ben:No but a friend you invited to the house did

Barney:It was an accident!   

Ben:Right…………...Just like when you told me (In as best of a Barney impression he can do) “Come on Ben! Go on that date even though you’re emotionally and financially broken! it’ll be all sunshine and rainbows!” Well news flash, Barney! Life isn’t like your televison series!

Barney:I know that, but....

Ben:And now I’m probably going to have to move back in with my dad! Do you know how embarrassing that’s going to be? *sighs* There’s no way he’s going to relate to what I’m going through.

Barney:You’d be surprised, Ben……

Ben:What do you mean by that?

*Barney makes a big door magically appear*

*Barney goes off screen*


*Ben walks to the front of the door*

Ben:Man I must be losing it………..

*Ben walks into what looks like his childhood home*

Ben:............This is the house I grew up in!

*Barney walks in*

Barney:And there you are

*Barney points to Ben as a child watching “Adventure In Make Believe” on the floor with the 3 dinos in plush form*

Ben:I don’t seem to understand why would you bring me here?

Barney:Follow me

*Barney and Ben walk to the couch where a much younger Mr Leach is shown stressing out over a lot of bill letters*

Mr Leach:I had no idea being laid off a shoe store would put me this far into debt! There’s gotta be a way to save money…..

*Mr Leach notices young Ben putting the VHS in it’s box and on a shelf with other VHS’s*

*2 smaller versions of himself (One dressed in white,The other in a red business suit) appear on Mr Leach’s shoulders*

Mr Leach (White):Don’t do it Richard. Ben’s too young to be forced out of his childhood

Mr Leach (Red):On the other hand it’s hard to have a childhood on the streets

Mr Leach  (White):Come on you’re overreacting the bills aren't that bad

*The Mr Leach in red gives the one in white a smaller version of one of the bills*

Mr Leach (White):Woah! Forget I said anything

*The smaller versions of himself disappears*

*Barney hands Ben a pamphlet*

Ben”How to deal with cruel irony in the family”? I don’t need a pamphlet!

Barney:Are you sure?

Ben:Yeah this is mere coincidence

*Ben gives Barney the pamphlet back*

*Time lapse fast forwards to Mr Leach putting all the VHS’s and 2 of the plush’s into a bag and giving it away*

*Young Ben walks in*

Young Ben:Hey Dad do you know where my stuff went?

Mr Leach:I don’t know how to tell you about this but………….Your stuff accidently fell into the donation box

Young Ben:....What? I can’t believe this!

*Young Ben runs back into the hallway*

Mr Leach:..............Poor guy but it’s for the future of our family

*Mr Leach stares at the home phone*

Mr Leach:.............That’s  not going to be enough tough

*Mr Leach runs to the home phone and picks it up*

Mr Leach:Hello? I’ll take your office job

*Barney hands Ben the pamphlet again*

*Ben tears the pamphlet and he and Barney walks out of the house  which brings them back outside the restaurant*

*The door magically disappears*

*Barney whistles as a magic carpet comes flying down*

*Barney walks unto it*

Barney:Hop aboard Ben!

Ben:......Whatever it’s not the weirdest thing I’ve seen today

*Ben sits on the magic carpet*

Barney:You might want to hold on

Ben:It’s a carpet why would I have to

*The magic carpet start’s to zoom to the sky*


*The carpet slows down speed giving a more scenic ride*

Ben:I can’t believe after all these years my dad never told me that he had similar troubles

Barney:I’m not a certified therapist….But I’d say the reason he never told you is the same reason you don’t want to tell Matthew

Ben:Yeah but to keep it for more then 20 years?

Barney:Sometimes people keep life changing things a secret to those they love in fear that it’ll split up the family…….The more they fear the longer the secret is kept

Ben:Wow……….And to think this is coming from the guy who’s well known for teaching colors and shapes

Barney:You might not see it on my show but after you reach a thousand you learn quite a lot of things

*The magic carpet get’s closer to Ben’s house*

Ben:......Wait one thing doesn’t add up if this is true then my dad didn’t keep that office job and he had to do part time jobs for the rest of his life, That much he did tell me so how could he be so happy go lucky after that?

*The carpet goes down and floats over a window*

Barney:This should be a good answer to your question

*Barney and Ben peek through the window seeing Mr Leach and Matthew on the couch bonding over “Let’s Go To The Firehouse”*

Ben:Some answer. They’re just bonding over the television



Barney:There we go

*The carpet starts flying again over the city*

Ben:You know being up here really makes you think……

Barney:What do you mean Ben?

Ben:Like if my dad can bounce back after a hard job loss I can to

Barney:Well imagine that

Ben:I don’t have to…….You did it for me

*Barney and Ben hug it out*

Ben:Look I’m sorry about what I said before you’ve showed me a lot of things I never would have seen if I didn’t imagine you here a couple days ago

Barney:It’s alright Ben and thank you…..The feeling’s mutual

Ben:Do you mind if we continue that imagination conversation we had when we first met? I promise I’ll listen this time

Barney:I’d thought you’d ever ask *Laughs*

*Just Imagine start’s up*

Barney:Just imagine, just imagine Just imagine all the things that we could be Imagine all the places we could go and see Imagination's fun for you and me

*The carpet flies over the moon with a hot air balloon going by*

Barney:We could go to the moon in a great big balloon

*The carpet flies over a sand castle on a beach side*

Barney:Build a castle by playing pretend

Ben:Could we even explore with a big dinosaur?

Barney:And make rainbows that never end!

*A rainbow magically appears where it stops is……….A mechanic's shop where Mr Belding is getting the keys to his car*

*Mr Belding leaves the place and gets into his car*

*A bit of Yankee Doodle is heard coming from his phone*

*Mr Belding checks his phone where he notices a purple text message that reads “Meet me outside Cannoli’s”*

Mr Belding:.....Huh wonder what this is about

*We then cut to Mary in a cab when suddenly the cab’s GPS changes course*

*The cab turns around*

Mary:Hey! This isn’t the route I told you to go

Cab Driver:The GPS says otherwise sweetheart

*We then cut to inside Cannoli’s where Mario is locking up*

Mr Cannoli’s voice:Mario! Come in here

Mario:*Sighs* here we go……….

*Mario walks into Mr Cannoli’s who gives Mario a piece of paper that reads “900”*

Mario:What’s this?

Mr Cannoli:This is the number of people who posted about us in social media! We’re also  getting phone calls up the roof about how-a much they loved how we got Barney. Mario my boy you’re idea worked great!

Mario:My idea?

Mr Cannoli:Wasn’t it your idea to get Barney to appear at our restaurant opening?

Mario:Yes it was…..Of course! It was my idea uncle er I mean Mr Cannoli

*Mr Cannoli get’s up from his desk*

Mr Cannoli:Please Mario….From now call me uncle

Mario:...........OK uncle!

*Mario and Mr Cannoli hug*

Mr Cannoli:....How does a manager position sound to you?

Mario:That sounds great!

Mr Cannoli:Then it’s offical!

*Mario looks out Mr Cannoli’s window and notices a crowd forming*

Mario:What the heck is going on outside?

Mr Cannoli:Let’s find out come on

*Mr Cannoli leaves the office*


*Mario leaves the office as it transits outside*

Mario:We could go anywhere We can be anyone

Mr Cannoli:We can do it quite easily too

*Guitar Guy from earlier in the film walks through*

Guitar Guy:We just play let's pretend and we know in the end,  That it's so much fun to do

*Barney and Ben still on the magic carpets start’s to fly towards the front of the restaurant*

Barney,Ben and the crowd:Just imagine, just imagine Just imagine all the things that we could be Imagine all the places we could go and see Imagination's fun for you and me.

Ben:Imagination's fun for you and me.

Barney: You’ve got it, Ben.

*Song ends as the crowd diminishes*

*The magic carpet lands with Barney and Ben getting off it*

Barney:Thanks for the ride!

*The carpet flies up and offscreen*

Barney:Bye bye *Laughs*

*Barney walks offscreen*

*Mr Belding walks towards Ben*

Mr Belding:Ben! Long time no see

Ben:Mr Belding……...Did you come here to fire me again?

Mr Belding:Quite the contrary

*Just then Ben’s old boss comes jogging through*

Mr Belding:I’m here to offer you a job Ben

Former Boss:.........What?!?

Mr Belding:One of our teachers just retired……...I was wondering if you would like to replace her

Ben:Oh my god yes! A million times yes! Teaching has always been a dream of mine

Mr Belding:That’s what you’re friend said when he came to me

*Ben looks at Barney talking to a little girl*

Ben:And I’ll be sure to thank that friend for this opportunity

*The former boss kicks the wall of the front of Cannoli’s*

Barney’s voice:You’re paying for that!

*Barney magically appears in front of the former boss chuckling*

*The former boss faints*

*Mario walks in*

Mario:Hey Barney can we talk?

Barney:Sure Mario what’s going on?

Mario:I want to apologize for brushing you off the way I did earlier tonight I thought that you being there would anger my uncle…..But it’s had the opposite effect I got promoted

Barney:That’s great to hear I’ve known you’ve had it rough on the job front I know you’ll make a great manager

*Barney notices Mary walking*

Barney:Oh and speaking of helping friends I better go I’ll see you later Mario

Mario:You to

*Ben runs over to Mary*

Ben:Mary hold up!

Mary:Go away Ben

Ben:Come on I understand I’ve been an idiot

*Mary stops walking and turns to Ben*

Mary:Idiot is an understatement

Ben:But just hear me out…...I have a friend that can sum up everything

*Mary looks around*

Mary:I don’t see anybody

Ben:Close your eyes


Ben:Just trust me on this! Close your eyes

*Mary closes her eyes*

Mary:Now what?

Ben:Use your imagination

*Barney magically appears behind Mary*

Ben:OK open your eyes and turn around

*Mary opens her eyes and turns around*

Ben:Mary…...This is my good friend Barney The Dinosaur

*Mary gasps*

Mary:I haven’t seen you since I was a little girl

Barney:And you still look as beautiful as ever Mary…. Or should I address you as Ms White?

Mary:M-Mary’s fine. So this entire time when you were spazzing out it was actually you trying to hide Barney?

Ben:In a sense yeah……..Only select people can see him and

Mary:I was one of the majority who couldn’t


Barney:That said you’re probably the first I’ve seen

Mary:The first of what?

Barney:The first person who found a way to imagine again

Mary:Oh that reminds me I was going to ask you something before I stormed out


Mary:My house is getting painted for a couple weeks and I was wondering if I could live with you guys until everything’s painted

Ben:Sure me casa y su Pina’s

*Mary and Barney laugh a bit*

Ben:What’s so funny?

Mary:You just said “My house is your pineapple”

Ben:Oh. But you know what I mean

Barney:You can sleep in the guest room I’m sure I can find a dino sized couch

Mary:Thanks for the offer Barney……...But I was hoping that Ben wouldn’t mind a room mate

Barney:Ohhhh I get what you're saying *Laughs*

Ben:Sure……..Let’s go back home and tell Matthew

*Scene transits to the Leach homestead where Ben,Barney and Mary walk in*

*Matthew and Mr Leach turns off the TV and get’s off the couch*

Ben:What are you still doing up sport?

Matthew:Grandpa let me stay up late since it’s a weekend

Ben:Really now? Well that’s definitely  going to affect how much Grandpa’s getting paid

Mr Leach:You don’t have to pay me Ben today’s economy is tough I’d be much happier if you keep every cent you have that way you’ll have a better chance at being financially safe

Ben:Thanks for the advice Dad

Mr Leach:And might I ask who this lovely lady is?

Ben:This is my friend Mary

Mr Leach:Enchanted

*Mr Leach kisses Mary’s hand*

Mary:Well now I know where Ben got his suaveness from

Mr Leach:I better get going it’s a hour’s drive back home

Barney:Actually I know a quick way to get to your house in about 15 minutes or less

Mr Leach:Really?

Barney:Yeah do you have a GPS?

Mr Leach:It’s in my car

Barney:OK I’ll walk you to the car and give you the directions

Mr Leach:Sounds good

*Mr Leach and Ben shake hands*

Ben:Have a safe drive home

Mr Leach:Thank you oh and just between you and me Ben


Mr Leach:You got a really special house guest here

Ben:....I think so to

Mr Leach:Shall we go Barney?

Barney:Sure now what you want to do is get off on the first exit and go through the interstate the traffic isn’t actually that bad this time of night

*Barney continues giving Mr Leach directions as they leave outside*

Ben:Matthew since you’re still up Ms White and I have some big news

Matthew:What is it?

Ben:Well you see

Mary:You don’t mind if I explain do you Ben?

Ben:Go right ahead

Mary:My house is getting painted and since I need a place to stay your dad and I have decided that it’d be great for me to live here with you guys for a couple weeks

Matthew:That sounds great! And I guess that means since you're living with us I don’t have to work as hard on my homework

Mary:On the contrary it actually means that if you’re late on you’re then you’d have no excuse…...Understand?

Matthew:Loud and clear Ms White

Mary:Please call me Mary outside of class

Barney:I think you’ll be in for a big surprise *Laughs*


*Ben opens up the package*

Ben:It’s a note

Ben:If you’re reading this congratulations you passed the first step now for step 2 put the box down

*Mary puts the box down*

Ben:Step 3 stand back

*Ben,Mary and Matthew ponder in confusion*

*A magic ball of light comes out of the box and rushes up the stairs*
