Patience is the 7th episode of Blue's Clues from season 5.

Characters Present


Patience is a virtue and that's what Joe & Blue learn to do.




  • This episode introduces Baby Bird, who will be seen in several future episodes. Baby Bird is important enough for the voice to merit a character credit, rather than being credited as one of Joe's Friends.
  • In the Mailtime Segment, done to pass the time after we've already solved the clues but are still waiting for the egg to hatch, Mailbox tells Joe that he's been waiting patiently to give him a letter.
  • This could be Joe's version of Blue's Surprise at Two O'Clock!.
  • This is the last time where Mailtime happens after at the end. The other episodes that happen were: Mailbox's Birthday What Does Blue Want to Do with Her Picture? Blue's Big Costume Party Magenta Gets Glasses.
  • This is the first time since "Magenta Gets Glasses" where mail is delivered at the end.
  • Joe said "Wait, wait, wait" just like in the episode "Blue's Big Car Trip".
  • This was the first time Periwinkle finds a clue before it happened again in the next episode Joe's Surprise Party.
  • This is the first time we see a full view of the back of the Blue's Clues House along with the other side of the street.
