George and The Man have just brought home a new rug. The Man thinks it is so perfect he would like to take a picture of it. But when he runs out to get some camera batteries George decides to have a drink of grape juice and spills it on the rug! George knows how to clean it up, though—a lot of soap and water. But he uses so much he fills up the whole house with suds and water. Luckily he knows about the time his friends The Renkins' basement got flooded and they cleaned it out with a pump. George finds the pump at their house but has no easy way to get it back home.
