Afterwards, when he sees an email, he opens it against Click's wishes, and finds it contains a virus (that looks like a bee), causing Click to malfunction, acting like she is having a seizure. Some segments fly around, while audio plays from the shown segments and other segments not shown flying around, and some characters come out of books (with the songs and music pertaining to The Boy Who Cried Wolf, Pecos Bill, Anne Bonny and the jazzy shoes playing (with Pecos Bill being accompanied by his song as he comes out of his book, The Boy Who Cried Wolf singing I See A Wolf, while the female backing singers are heard when he comes out of the book and Anne Bonney singing It's Great To Be A Pirate (even though she's not shown singing it and it and the jazz music from the overshoes are just heard in the jumble of audio)).|

"Yes?" prompts Click. Finally, Lionel tells Theo that it all started with the email he found and that he probably shouldn't have opened it. When Theo says that that would probably explain the "hee-hee"'s on his glasses, Lionel turns around and sees them. He then says "Oh, great — that's great. Now I'll never be a librarian!" However, Theo tells Lionel that he'd make a great librarian, and that he had the courage to tell him the truth.|
|SCENE 11 & 12||Walter and Clay Pigeon need more seeds but are extremely fat while realizing they are out! "Hey Clay... we're out of, uh..." "Seeds!" "Yeah! Hey.. let's go get some, uh..." "More!"

|SCENE 12 (cont'd)||Mr. Bruno Kirby continues dancing on the floor...|
"Dance in Smarty Pants"
(with several guest stars dancing)
- Pecos Bill's voice is much higher pitched than in Pecos Bill Cleans Up the West.
- The characters who come out of the books are all the animated and/or non-human characters who came out of books in Season 1; Pecos Bill from Pecos Bill Cleans Up the West (with his song playing as he comes out of the book), Larry the Rock from The Lost Rock, the titular character from The Boy Who Cried Wolf (singing I See A Wolf, with the female backing singers heard as he comes out of the book), Anne Bonney from To the Ship! To the Ship! (with It's Great To Be A Pirate playing, though not when she is seen nor is it sung by her, instead playing in the background with the jumbled audio), Sam the Ram from The Ram in the Pepper Patch and the jazzy shoes from Be Bop (with their jazz music, also played in the background amongst the jumbled audio). The duck from The Lucky Duck is the only one to not come out of his book. The Giants members from Giants and Cubs and The hiccup monster from Pandora's Box don't count, as the former two were from a newspaper and it was obviously recycled and the latter came out of an object taken out of a book.
- The segments that fly around during the virus are Fred Says, Sam Spud, Vowel Boot Camp, The Adventures of Cliff Hanger (with audio of him saying "Banana..." from Cliff Hanger and the Big Ape and the Banana Drop and one of the bubbles pointing to a certain object appearing, pointing to the hees and reading "hee"), Gawain's Word (with audio of the segment's intro music), Teatro with Hugo and Ines, Swami Marmy, The Word Doctor with Dr. Ruth Wordheimer, Dance in Smarty Pants!, Heath the Thesaurus' introductions for the Replaced Letters Songs, The Shark from the Sea Words segments (who also appears in the Fred Says and Gawain's Word Segments and one Library scene in Shooting Stars) and the hand that grabs letters. Arty Smartypants' theme and the theme to What's Cooking? With Theo and Cleo are also heard amongst the jumbled audio.
- When Lionel walks away after failing to get a malfunctioning Click's attention, Click begins to say, "I am a Version 9000 computer mouse." before her voice winds down due to her malfuctioning, an apparent reference to HAL 9000 from 2001: A Space Oddysey.
