Lady Elaine Fairchilde reminds Daniel, "Even when friends play with someone new, they will still be friends with you." Recognizing Daniel's feelings, Miss Elaina invites him to rejoin the game.

Daniel make-believes that he can do "lots and lots of tiger-tastic splat ball tricks."

Realizing that they are all still friends, Jodi decides to play explorers with Daniel and Miss Elaina. They all agree to compromise by playing "polar bear explorers."
