Mr. Bean's alarm goes off at eight o'clock, but he continues to sleep in his bed, ignoring the chimes of his grandfather clock, dunking a battery powered alarm clock into a glass of water, and stopping a hose spraying hot water from his teasmade by plugging it with the big toe on his right foot. Eventually, Bean gets up fifty minutes later, conducts some light exercise, brings out his clothes, and then has difficulty shaving when his electric razor catches his nasal hairs. Upon noticing a reminder that he has a dental appointment, he suddenly realises he is running late, and proceeds to grab his clothes, his shoes, and his toothbrush and toothpaste, and heads for his car, coming back suddenly to ensure his cuddly toy, Teddy, is tucked in bed. Rushing for the appointment, Bean proceeds to get dressed while driving, using a brick on the accelerator for some of the journey alongside his feet for the steering, before eventually brushing his teeth, using the car's screenwash to rinse his mouth out before spitting it out, the contents landing on the backside of a local builder who assumes it is bird droppings. Arriving at the dental surgery of Mr. A. M. Peggit in the nick of time, Bean parks out front, forcing the blue Reliant out of the only parking space. A traffic warden then appears, prepares to ticket the Reliant, and makes Bean notice that a part of his pyjamas is sticking out of his trousers, forcing him to remove it and toss it in his car. Once in the waiting room, he finds nothing good to read other than a Batman comic book in the hands of a young boy, and tricks the boy's mother into thinking he has urinated on himself in order to get the comic, only to find he has no time to read it as the dentist is at this point ready to see him. Inside with Mr. Peggit, Bean causes mayhem behind the dentist's back, adjusting the dental chair to unusual positions and messing about with some of the equipment. Eventually, he accidentally numbs the dentist's leg by stabbing a needle containing a dose of local anaesthetic, causing him to fall over and then pull down an X-ray blocker, knocking him out. Feeling inconvenienced by this, Bean decides to do what the dentist was planning to do – put a filling into his tooth. Although he manages to do this, he soon finds that the holder containing the dental map of his teeth can flip vertically and horizontally, leaving him to drill each tooth and put filling on all of them, effectively causing them to be stuck together. Fortunately, Bean gets a fright when Mr. Peggit wakes up and, satisfied with his own work, he leaves the dentist to enjoy the rest of the day.
