After Spike spends most of his time with the visiting Spiketail herd in the Great Valley, the herd grows very fond of him, particularly the little boy Tippy and his mother. When the cold time (winter) arrives, and causes most of the vegetation in the valley to die off, the Spiketails offer to leave, as they consume more food than most of the other dinosaurs. Tippy's mother makes a proposition to Ducky's mother; have Spike join the herd for the remainder of the cold time. Not wanting to be separated from her adopted son, but still wondering if it's what would be best for him, she finally decides to let him make the choice.
Spike has difficulty deciding between his new friends and his family, and thus Ducky, in frustration, pushes him to leave. As Spike and the herd make off, Ducky feels regretful for her actions, and confused that Spike would submit to her outburst and leaves. She then questions what the essence of a family is; perhaps a group of similar people who get along well and live together. Her mother then sings to her the belief that a family is a group of people who love each other.
As Ducky and the other main characters puzzle over the ups and downs one may feel with members of their family, or their close friends, Mama Swimmer tells them that the mutual love of a family helps conflicting people to rise above their differences and forgive each other. Ducky finally understands that no matter what Spike does, or wherever he is, as long as she loves him and he loves her, they are family.
- When Littlefoot says "But think of all the things that we've been through", a flashback of the scene in The Stone of Cold Fire where the characters cling onto the falling vine is shown.
