A colorful banner reading "Welcome to the Fabulous Fix-It Fair" is hung on the front table, band music blares from a phonograph, the kids toss confetti, Luis dons a ridiculous suit and Mr. Dazzle shouts about like a carnival barker. After receiving complaints about the noise and confetti from Bob, Susan and Gordon, Luis choses to call off the whole event. He does end up with one new customer - Mr. Razzle, whose phonograph has now broken down.

It's 3:00 AM.
