Playing at the breakfast table, Allegra and Rondo disobey their mother and break a family rule about not standing on chairs. This earns them both a time out. Upstairs, thinking about what he did wrong, Rondo leads Allegra in a protest against rules. But when he catches Allegra climbing on top of her dresser, Rondo realizes that some of mom and dad's rules aren't as dumb as he thought.

Oh, Allegra, Rondo, get down! That's it. You both need a time-out.
A time-out? But Mom, what about the contest?
Rondo, I told you very clearly that you are not allowed to stand on your chair and you did. Now go upstairs to your room.
No fair! No fair!
You too, Allegra. You both need to stay upstairs until you've calmed down and think about why we have that rule.
