The younger Dódaí are playing chasing, but the twins fall over and hurt themselves.  Nóra helps them forget about their troubles by getting them all to help her clean up the house.  They don't want to because they think that cleaning up is not as much fun as playing - but using a magical song, Nóra shows them how much fun it can be.  After all this hard work, they have a rest and Nóra asks them to think about the things they like to do.

Different people like different things and we are reminded that Nóra likes to read, the twins love to sing and dance and we learn that Naoise loves spiders!  The bubble machine shows us different children telling us about the things they like and don't like.  Afterwards, Ruairí decides to play with a jigsaw puzzle, just like one of the children we saw in the magic bubble.  Naoise tries to help but gets things wrong and they argue.  Nóra intervenes, peace is restored and Naoise and Ruairí hug.

Nóra then tells them a story about Lughaidh, the little duck who didn't like the rain.  After the story, Nóra pretends to be Banbha, the sad princess who has no friends - and the others dance and sing to cheer her up. Finally it is time for na Dódaí to say goodbye to their friends.

Tá na Dódaí is óige ag déanamh folacháin, ach titeann an cúpla go ngortaíonn iad féin. Cuidíonn Nóra leo dearmad a dhéanamh de, nó tugann sí orthu an teach a ghlanadh. Sin rud nach dteastaíonn uathu a dhéanamh, áfach mar dar leo nach bhfuil spraoi ar bith ag baint le timireacht i gcomparáid le bheith ag súgradh – ach trí amhrán draíochta taispeánann Nóra nach fíor sin ar fad.
