This episode, subtitled "A Lesson in Little Things" teaches viewers the importance of forgiving others when they act carelessly or thoughtlessly. The episode opens with Bob the Tomato and Larry the Cucumber on the countertop as usual and Bob remarks that the other day he ran into a boy named "Marco". Marco says that when his little sister does something that makes him upset and then apologizes, his mother says he needs to forgive her. But Marco asks "Why do I have to forgive?" In response, Larry tells a story of paris French

In the segment Madeline is a children's book series written by Ludwig Bemelmans The story is told by Grandpa George, making his VeggieTales debut (as a story telling narrator)Madeline gets appendicitis and must go to the hospital to have her appendix removed

This is the first episode that does not have a Silly Song. Instead the Silly Song was replaced with an advertisement starring Scallion #1 for a machine used to predict that God would forgive your sin called "The Forgive-O-Matic." Junior however interrupts the commercial and tries to convince Scallion #1 that he should instead simply ask God for forgiveness. Scallion #1 then tries to re-advertise The Forgive-O-Matic as a julienne fry maker and a Chia model. The commercial closes when Junior turns of the lights and camera telling the Scallion to say "Goodnight Gracie", a reference to the ending line of the Burns and Allen radio and television shows

Bob and Larry interact with the story and try to figure out how many times one should forgive. Qwerty then shows Matthew 18:22 "Jesus answered 'I tell you not seven times, but seventy times seven.' Mt. 18:21-22. When Rosie figures out the answer to Qwerty's question, Manuel ask for appendicitis forgiveness and called them "The Grapes of Math"

Then the shows ends with Qwerty giving out another Bible verse that says, "Forgive others, as The Lord forgave you."
