They start to play with the bulldozer, but then Baby Bear suggests they need a driver and he offers his doll. All is going along fine until Telly crashes the bulldozer into a block tower, and some of the blocks hit the doll. Baby Bear says it's "too rough" and pretends that Curly might get upset. They switch to playing with action figures, and Baby Bear offers his doll to be Super Baby, but that gets a little rough too.

Baby Bear explains to Gordon that he doesn't want Telly to know how much he loves his doll, since dolls are for girls.

At each stage he talks to medical experts and explains the amazing functions that happen without our conscious effort.
