Expanded summary

The episode starts with Peep and Chirp catching orange leaves. Peep notices a blue feather on the grass and he calls it a "blue leaf". Chirp comes over and says to Peep it's not a leaf, it's one of Quack feathers. Peep says she's right and Quack is singing about ducks in the spring and fall. And then hums. Peep says ''we found one of your feathers". Peep comes surprised, and then Chirp tells Quack Beaver Boy’s missing his tooth. Chirp then tells Quack that Beaver Boy is still a beaver. Peep thinks they could find the missing tooth. Quack thinks the fish have it. Quack explains it to the fish, then Fish Jr. shows Quack a golf ball. Quack says that it needs to be flat.

They go over to Quack’s bush to find a tooth-like thing, but Quack keeps telling them not to touch his stuff. Chirp then tells Quack that all the stuff is his. Quack tells them that he’s reminding them. Peep then finds a cracker. Quack tells Peep that it would not work at all. Chirp then tells Quack that it’s worth a try.
