When the Rugrats begin feeding Dil watermelon, Betty tells them: "You keep feeding him like that and he's gonna turn into a watermelon!" As Chas makes animal balloons for the kids, they don't notice Didi taking Dil inside to wash him off. All the Rugrats see when they turn around is a watermelon. Convinced this is Dil because his rattle is nearby, the kids begin to look after the fruit like it was a baby. When Stu announces a watermelon eating contest and watermelon Dil is taken away, can the babies rescue him and turn him back into a baby before he becomes someone's lunch? - Description from Klasky Csupo.
The grown-ups prepare for a block party with Howard shouting safety rules through a megaphone and the babies eating watermelon and feeding it to Dil. Betty comes along and says Dil will turn into a watermelon if he keeps eating it. They are concerned but then Charles makes balloon animals and they are distracted. Meanwhile Didi takes Dil off to wash him at home and the babies turn around and see a watermelon with Dil's rattle nearby. They think they will have to look after it/him and they dress it in a nappy, yellow hat and purple top, try to play Pat a Cake with it and roll it down the slide. Then Howard announces a watermelon eating contest (while Didi changes Dil), Tommy declares they have to turn the water melon into Dil again and he thinks that seeing as (supposedly) Dil turned into a watermalon by being fed watermelon, the watermelon will turn into a baby by being fed baby food so they try to "feed" the watermelon, but Stu takes it away and they search for it in the watermelon pile (Stu locked Howard in the privy because he was bored of his shouting). Meanwhile Didi brings the real Dil as the babies rejoice as he is not a watermelon.
- Chuckie mentions the time he swallowed a watermelon seed, as seen in one of the "original era" episodes, "The Inside Story".
- The episode title is a pun on the phrase "'Til We Meet Again".
- This is the first episode to not have debuted on Nickelodeon in the US, but instead debuted on Telemundo on December 1999. The episode never aired again for another two years. Also this is the first episode to focus on Dil.
