Summary

A horrible sickness has entered Capitol City, forcing everyone to stay at home. Baby Lamb wonders how he and his loved ones are going to cope with the sickness and keep each other safe. What's more, Baby Lamb sees how it's affecting people's daily lives.

Plot

The episode begins with Baby Lamb admiring the day until Donny comes in and tells Baby Lamb to check the news. They turn on the news, where Ricky Bowers is reporting about a horrible sickness (which is unnamed) spreading across the nation leaving people either sick or unemployed. The government issued a "stay-at-home" order in order to stop the spread of the illness. Ricky Bowers found out that some of the people in the studio got the sickness, and so he's been fired.

Baby Lamb is shocked that a sickness is happening, and is even more shocked that he has to stay at home even though he's not sick. Donny explains that it's the only way to stop the spread until a cure has been found, which could take a long time. Baby Lamb doesn't believe Donny or the news and was about to go outside until Chief Mark stopped him, ordering him to stay at home in order to keep himself safe. Distraught, Baby Lamb admits that Donny was right. Roger Rex complains about how he got 3 tickets to Disneyland (all for himself) but because of the sickness, Disneyland has been closed and he can't get a refund on the tickets.

Wanting to get to the bottom of the situation, Baby Lamb was walking across Town Square until he noticed the Police Fort has been taped with "quarantine" tape and discovers what it means. He heads back and finds some of the gang watching TV. Baby Lamb wonders where his best friend, Cow, is. Ricky hasn't seen him since the pandemic started. Suddenly, Baby Lamb gets a Zoom call from Cow on the computer until he reminds Cow that they live with each other so they shouldn't have to worry about getting each other sick. Cow explained that he's worried that he will never get to see his friends again and that they're gonna get sick, but Baby Lamb explained that they'll be safe just as long as they take necessary precautions (washing your hands, covering your mouth when you cough or sneeze, etc). Cow asks Baby Lamb how long is it gonna be before things get back to normal, but Baby Lamb doesn't have an answer and says they have to live like this. They have to face the fact that they're living in a quarantine life.

Baby Lamb sees his Uncle, who's feeling very upset because he finally finished night school. He was going to have a big bombastic graduation ceremony, but it was cancelled in lieu of a virtual graduation because of the pandemic He's distraught that he worked hard for several years but he doesn't want this type of celebration. Baby Lamb told him that it would've been worse, because he would've gotten no ceremony at all. Uncle Lamb wished that the pandemic didn't happen and thinks that God hates them, but Baby Lamb said it happened just because and they have to get themselves through it. As long as they take it one day at a time and have each other, they can make it through just about anything. Uncle Lamb is touched by Baby Lamb's words and mentions how lucky he is that he's young, because soon he'll have a traditional graduation ceremony when he's older and Uncle Lamb's gonna be there to celebrate. The two share a hug, and Uncle Lamb sends Baby Lamb off.

Baby Lamb speaks to the audiences that they will get through this and everything will be okay as long as we take this one day at a time, and soon we will look back on this and be glad we kept ourselves and others safe. Baby Lamb found Cow reading a book, who's using it as a good way to pass the time while he's in self-quarantine (and also mentioning he can use it as toilet paper).

    • This is the second time a song by Elton John is sung. The first is in Baby Lamb & Friends: The Movie, featuring his song "Don't Go Breaking My Heart".
  • Though self-explanatory, this episode is based on the infamous coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic happening throughout 2020, where people worldwide have to stay at home and self-quarantine themselves in order to control the spread of the virus and keep each other safe.
    • Simon A. wants to ensure the viewers that he and his loved ones are doing fine in the midst of the pandemic.

Cultural References
