[On the way to Crystal Bayou for Vixey's baptism...]
Quacker: QUACK! Breaking news! The Villains Club is dead!
Buttons, Rusty and their folks: DEAD!?
[Their folks rejoice and celebrate]
Rusty: How did they die?
Quacker: May I explain how this happened?
[In a flashback, in Attica]
Quacker: [narrates] Back in Attica, Syco, Lord Morlock, Claude, and Lenny Stapp and Lulu decided that have had enough of Zak, Gourmad, Delilah and Patty's gripes over their defeat to us good critters.
[Syco slithers out of Attica while Morlock and his gang teleport out]
Quacker: [narrates] So, Syco and Morlock along with his gang decide to get out of prison to avoid dealing with the Villains Club's griping any longer. While Claude decided to come up with a plan to stop their griping.
[The pruno truck arrives at Attica]
Quacker: [narrates] So, after the pruno truck arrived at Attica, Claude decided to mix poison with the pruno in Zak, Gourmad, Delilah, Patty, Dario, Reg, Zeke and Wescott's cups.
Claude: Crush, you want to help me?
Crush: Nah, Mom told me it's not right for me to do that.
Claude: Okay, suit yourself, my spoiled nephew!
[Claude mixes the poison with the pruno. Later, in the cafeteria, Claude sits with the Villains Club about to drink their pruno.]
Wescott: Well, this is lovely.
Zeke: Interesting beverages.
Dario: Most kind.
Reg: Oh boy, we drink!
Quacker: [narrates] After the Villains Club drank the poison-mixed pruno...
[While the Villains Club drink the poison-mixed pruno, Claude watches as he drinks his non-poison-mixed pruno]
Quacker: [narrates] ...they choked and then they died.
[Wescott, Zeke, Dario, and Reg start to groan in pain]
Delilah: Dario! Would you shut it?!
Patty: Uh-oh, I think he, Reg, Zeke, and Wescott drank poison-mixed pruno!
[Gourmad, Delilah, Patty, and Zak start to groan in pain as well]
Delilah: [weakly] Oh no, I d-don't...feel...so...good!
[Wescott dies, falling to the floor first, then Dario, then Reg and then Zeke]
Gourmad: [weakly] Now...I'll...never...cook...endangered...animals...again!
[Gourmad falls to the floor dying]
Delilah: [weakly] I'll...see...you...in...the...afterlife,...Zak.
[Delilah falls to the floor dying]
Patty: [weakly] At...least...I...won't...be...seeing...nature...anymore!
[Patty falls to the floor dying]
Zak: [weakly] The...Villains...Club...is...no...more!
[Zak falls to the floor dying]
[The warden comes in and sees what happened]
Warden: What happened?
Claude: I was tired of their griping.
Warden: [understandingly] Huh, what a coincidental excuse, so was I.
[Back to the present]
Quacker: Despite the warden buying the excuse, Claude was sentenced to death row for murder.
[The good critters cheer]
Buttons: YEAH! No more Vaderman!
Rusty: No more Gourmad!
Frisky: No more Denara!
Bearbette: No more Parker!
Rusty: And no more hearing "Chucklewood Litters." 'Cause we are...
All: CHUCKLEWOOD CRITTERS!
[Cheers and applause]
Sarah: No more fat chef!
Omar: Will you nurture Vixey in the world?
George, Rosie and Rusty: By teaching and example, we will guide her to accept God's grace for herself to profess her faith openly, and to lead a Christian life.
[Omar pours water in a bowl and stirs it with his hands]
Omar: Pour out your Holy Spirit, to bless this gift of water and those who receive it, to wash away their sin and clothe them in righteousness throughout their lives that dying and being raised with Christ, they may share in his final victory.
[George and Rosie give Vixey to Omar who removes the pall and lays his hands on Vixey]
Omar: Vixey, I baptize you in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
[He puts Vixey in the bowl for five seconds. He then raises Vixey up.]
Omar: The Holy Spirit work within you, that being born through water and the Spirit, you may be a faithful disciple of God.
[He takes a dab of olive oil and draws a cross on Vixey's forehead]
Omar: Vixey, you are sealed by the Holy Spirit in baptism and marked as God's own forever.
[He then puts a robe on Vixey]
Omar: Receive these new clothes as a token of the new life that is given in God.
Miss Love Talks To Parents About Friendship
Miss Love: [introducing a simulation of a fox and a dog] Sometimes, a friend can become an enemy. Take a fox and dog for an example.
[The simulation begins]
Miss Love: One day, a little fox wandered around the woods until he comes an old cabin which he sees a dog. The dog wakes up from his dog house and smells the fox's scent. You see? He has a strong sense of smell. The dog then finds the fox near the end of a log.
Fox: Whatcha smelling?
Dog: I'm on the trail of something.
Fox: What are you tracking?
Dog: Why...it's you.
[In the school]
Miss Love: How would you feel if you see someone approaching you?
[Pause for two minutes for responses]
[In the simulation, the fox and dog laugh together. A montage is shown.]
Miss Love: So, the fox and the dog laughed and became friends and played together every day. Aren't they two special? That reminds me of a song that my father taught me.
[sings You Are Special from Mister Rogers as the montage continues]
You are my friend
You are special
You are my friend
You're special to me.
You are the only one like you.
Like you, my friend, I like you.
In the daytime
In the nighttime
Any time that you feel's the right time
For a friendship with me, you see
You are my friend
You're special to me.
[Back to the school]
Miss Love: There's only one in this wonderful world...
[not singing] Friends are very special. They can not only play together, they can talk with each other about all kinds of things. They can even help each other. What does your friend like to do?
Miss Love: It's very important to know that when you start to grow older, your days of playtime will start to fade away. This is sometimes called maturing. For instance, in the winter, the dog was training with his hunter which he came a hunting dog. As hunting dogs can track down foxes, the fox and the dog became natural enemies. Here's what happened as the two reached adulthood with the dog becoming a hunting dog.
[In the simulation...]
Fox: Hey, it's me.
Dog: It's great to see you. You know you shouldn't be here.
Fox: Well, I just wanted to see you. We're still friends, are we?
Dog: [makes a sad glare] Those days are over. I'm a hunting dog now.
[The fox becomes surprised, then feels sad]
Fox: [cries] Okay, nice knowing you. [runs away]
Dog: [sniffles] Nice knowing you too.
[Back at the school]
Miss Love: Most of the time, a friend will stop playing with you and moves on to new things like going out to ballgames, doing homework together. In addition, if a boy and girl were friends together, they can get married, just like the cub couples. We'll discuss more about that in a later episode. Sometimes a friend has to move away for a very special reason. Take Sarah for example.
[Clips from A New Burrow and a Child are shown]
Miss Love: In last season, she was very upset when Skipper and Bluebell moved away to adopt a child named Thippy. They have matured from babysitting as a result of this and transitioned to forming a family. Near the end of the episode, Sarah cried continuously throughout the day until Bearbette and Frisky decided to become her new babysitters.
[Back to the present]
Miss Love: How would you feel if a friend moves away?
[Pause for five minutes]
Miss Love: Sometimes many of your childhood toys such as swings, car toys, balls, or even your dollhouse will be donated to donation stores or being sold at yard sales. In addition, when a sibling moves away such as going out of the country or after graduating from High School, he or she will probably give the room to his younger one. Last season, Abner and George converted Buttons and Rusty's secret shortcut into the baby room because the Fox family is beginning to get bigger. Even when a friend moves away, the friendship never ends. Here's a preview of the next episode, which explains this.
Moving Out Is Hard To Do
[A meeting with the boy cubs' folks...]
Rosie: George, the boys are all grown-up now. They are free for whatever they do. And Vixey is getting ready to move from a crib to a bed.
George: But the cave doesn't have enough room for a bedroom for Vixey.
Bridgette: I believe it's time to move on our separate ways.
Quacker: Quack! Telegram for Bridgette.
[Quacker hands telegram to Bridgette]
Bridgette: "Bridgette: Mom is in hospice care and lost her support to assisted living. I urge you to move to Sweet Water Valley to live with me so we can be with her. - Francine" [not reading] Oh no. My mother is losing her assisted living. Her doctors say that me and Francine need to be with her.
Abner: Moving to Sweet Water Valley?
Bridgette: Yes, Abner. [hugs Abner] I don't know when I'll be back. I'll stay in touch.
George: I think we should convert the secret shortcut into an apartment for Buttons.
Abner: That will work.
[After a serious argument between the girl cubs' folks]
Darwin: I don't need anyone to protect me, now that Bearbette and Frisky are now women.
Bearnadine: B-b-b-but, Darwin--
Darwin: I AM THROUGH! THIS IS THE END! [storms out of the cave]
[Bearbette walks Sarah home from school]
Bearbette: What did you do in school today?
Sarah: In school today, we visited the library, where we learned how to use the library. We got a library card, which is the most important thing you need to borrow books.
[She shows Bearbette said card]
Bearbette: Wow! What book did you check out?
Bearbette: I remember reading that book when I was young. I'll read it to you--
[Suddenly, she sees her father tied up in ropes]
Bearbette: Oh no! Pop!
[She runs to her father who feels him]
Bearbette: POP! Wake up! This is no time for a nap!
[Randal approaches her]
Bearbette: Randal, what's going on?
Randal: I saw that Morlock captured him for ransom when I was out on my morning walk.
Bearbette: [gasps] WHAT!?
Daydream Believer Of The Homecoming Queen
[As Syco enters the courtyard, he begins to chew on the class float]
Buttons: [gasps] Oh my gosh!
Johnny: The float!
[The class then runs after the snake who hisses at Sarah and then goes inside her dress]
Sarah: [stammering] RUSTY! HELP!
Rusty: [gasps] SARAH!
[Syco chews on Sarah's rear end and she screams to frighten Syco away. Rusty then attempts to tackle the snake but he slithers very fast.]
Syco: You can't catch me, Chucklewood pests!
[The boys then chase him, destroying the gym and football field, and setting up the fire alarm. The entire school is evacuated. Syco hisses and slithers away.]
Johnny: We better call Chief Hamilton.
[Sarah is down the floor, Rusty feels her]
[He sees bite marks on Sarah's face who briefly wakes up]
Sarah: R..r...r..usty? Help me.
[Frisky lifts up Sarah's dress and looks at bite marks throughout her body. She sees her middle covered up in green substance.]
Frisky: Oh no! Gee, that snake really damaged her good. Turn her over, Rusty.
[Rusty turns her over and shows her backside]
Rusty: Oh my! Look at her butt. I've never seen a bad critter bite Sarah's butt before.
[He turns her over to show her front and points to her middle]
Frisky: Looks like the Sarah spot is not kissable.
Rusty: We got to get her to Macquarie. Johnny, grab me a stretcher.
Frisky: Bearbette, you and Buttons go see Randal. Maybe he can help repair the school.
[At Mr. Pines' office, he and Hamilton review the videotape]
Mr. Pines: How the heck did that snake slither into the school? [sees Syco slithering into the school and performing said actions]
Hamilton: Might be a hole in the vent.
Mr. Pines: It's gonna take a whole lot of money to get the school repair. And homecoming is Friday.
Hamilton: We better call the HSFA and see what they can do.
Mr. Pines: Schedule a press conference.
[In the hospital, Dr. Macquarie looks at Sarah's backside.]
Dr. Macquarie: Oh my! A big snake mark on her butt. [goes around to her front side and using a magnifying glass, she examines her middle] Complete poison-filled.
[She gets her X-ray machine out]
[In the waiting room, Rusty and Frisky are waiting for the results]
Frisky: I remember Sarah was poisoned by Syco.
Rusty: The rabbits did a good job recovering her.
[Dr. Macquarie approaches then]
Dr. Macquarie: Rusty? Frisky?
Dr. Macquarie: Sarah is going to spend a few days here.
Rusty: WHAT!? WHY!?
Dr. Macquarie: [shows an x-ray of Sarah] There are snake bite marks throughout her entire body, even on her rear end. Her belly is completely covered up in poison. [points to her middle] See that green mark on her spot?
Frisky: [gasps] Oh no!
[Rusty looks at the x-ray]
Rusty: Darn! It's Syco all right. Snake bite marks are so strong. [looks at Sarah's stomach] He licked her stomach.
Dr. Macquarie: It's going to take lots of time to get her body healed and have her belly be back to normal.
Frisky: Does this mean she'll have to miss Homecoming weekend?
Dr. Macquarie: Maybe. We will just have to wait and see.
Rusty: Come on Frisk, we got to report this to Aunt Stacy and Uncle Dennis.
[Sarah's cave, Rusty and Frisky talk to Stacy and Dennis]
Stacy: WHAT!? My beautiful girl got bitten and poisoned by Syco!?
[Dennis looks at the x-ray]
Dennis: Oh my! Those bite marks are really violent. I've never seen a critter bite Sarah's butt before.
Stacy: And look at that. [looks at Sarah's middle] Why can a snake cover up her belly with poison?
Dennis: I believe he licked it so strong.
Rusty: Dr. Macquarie said she'll need to spend in the hospital for a few days.
Stacy: [gasps] She is going to miss school for a few days and Wednesday is Swim Day.
Dennis: Next Wednesday, Stacy!
Frisky: She may probably miss Homecoming this week. Johnny and Robin are on the Homecoming Court and are building their class float.
Dennis: I better write up a note to Miss Love. [does so]
Rusty: Not only Syco bit Sarah, but he also damaged Johnny and Robin's class float, the stadium, just about the whole school.
Stacy: That is terrible!
Frisky: Buttons and Bearbette are getting Randal for some help on how he could fix the damage.
Chairman: Mr. Boyett, Mr. Gurd, Miss McCobb, tell me the story.
Johnny: Well, we are at the courtyard building our class float. Our float was 1/4 complete.
David: While we were taking a dinner break, Syco surprisingly appeared and began a rampage on the class floats.
Chairman: And then what happened?
Robin: Then, after he damaged the floats. We began to chase him and went inside one of my friends' cousin. He bit her in the butt and her stomach. He even poisoned her belly.
Mr. Pines: How unusual.
Johnny: We tried to stop Syco but he slithered away and damaged the stadium.
Hamilton: We tried to get that snake but he kept slithering away.
Mr. Pines: The snake eventually caused us $18,000 worth of damage.
Superintendent: It's gonna take days to get the school back in operation.
Coach Mann: How on earth are we gonna play football? My team practices three and a half hours a day cause Chateau is undefeated.
Chairman: Well, here's the situation: Your homecoming game is scheduled for Saturday at 2:00 p.m. You have until Friday at 5:00 p.m. to repair the damage and get the stadium ready for the game. If by chance, it is not repaired by that time frame, the game will be forfeited and the victory will be awarded to Chateau.
[Randal looks through pictures of the damage.]
Randal: My word. That was hundreds of dollars in damage.
Buttons: Yes, Randal. The snake really did all the hard work to destroy the stadium.
Rusty: And bit my cousin. She's in the hospital.
Randal: Well, this is going to be a tough plan to repair it all.
[Suddenly, Bearbette's critter phone rings (playing a snippet of The Bayou Critters Romp). Bearbette answers it.]
Robin: Hi, Bearbette. It's Robin. Listen, Johnny and I had a meeting with Mr. Pines and the officials about what happened last night.
[Bearbette puts the critter phone on speakerphone]
Robin: Syco caused $18,000 worth of damage.
All critters: WHAT!?
Robin: The chairman told us that the school must be repaired by 5:00 p.m. on Friday. If not, the game will be forfeited and we will not have Homecoming.
Frisky: We are at Randal's and he is looking for a solution to repair the school.
Robin: Oh, really?
Randal: [looks through his spell book] Oh, here is one. "Atoraa Mezooka." A spell that can help repair parade floats. This should do the trick. I'll have it ready by tomorrow.
Rusty: Thanks, Randal.
[In an operating room, Dr. Macquarie's crew performs operations on Sarah to remove the bites while the other puts a tube on her middle. One examiner sedates her.]
Sarah: [whispering] Rusty.
[A montage is shown between repairing the school, rebuilding the class float, and the Homecoming Court rehearsal set to Daydream Believer. As the song ends, at Sarah's cave, just as Stacy and Dennis get ready for bed.]
Stacy's Critter Phone: Ring-ring-ring! Ring-ring-ring! Phone call! Phone call!
Stacy: Who is calling us while we're getting ready for bed? [looks at her phone and sees "CRITTER HOSPITAL"] It's Macquarie! [answers it] Hello?
Dr. Macquarie: Stacy? Dennis?
Stacy: Dr. Macquarie! Oh! You woke us up while we are getting ready for bed.
Dr. Macquarie: I have great news for you. Sarah is recovered!
Stacy: Oh my gosh!
Dr. Macquarie: The procedure took four days. She is good as new. Can you two come to the hospital?
Stacy and Dennis: Yes! Let's go!
[At the critter hospital, Dr. Macquarie brings Sarah (riding on a stretcher) to her folks]
Sarah: [gasps] Mommy! Daddy! [leaps out of the stretcher who rubs both of her folks' stomachs]
Stacy: [giggling] Hi, Sarah! I am so happy you are back to normal!
Dennis: [laughs] My little mermaid. You're all better!
Dr. Macquarie: The procedure took only four days. My experts manage to take every step to heal the bites and various antidotes to remove the poison off of her stomach.
[Sarah lifts up her hospital gown to expose her now recovered stomach]
Sarah: See? No bite marks.
Stacy: That's my girl!
[She rubs Sarah's stomach who giggles and kisses the middle]
Dr. Macquarie: I think you should go home now. It's getting late.
Stacy: With a good night's rest, she'll be ready for the Homecoming festivities!
[While lining up for the parade]
[A critter covered up walks around the staging area. The critter approaches Johnny and Robin's float.]
Frisky: Hey, Rust. What's that?
[Rusty unwraps the blanket, revealing only the stomach and examining it]
Rusty: I know that belly! Frisky, get me an ice pack.
[Frisky gives Rusty an ice pack and covers up the middle. He hears a familiar giggle. He removes the ice pack, rubs the stomach and Sarah unwraps herself]
Rusty and Frisky: Sarah!
Sarah: [giggles] I'm cured!
[Just as she attempts to press Frisky's stomach, she notices that Frisky and Rusty are wearing sweaters and pants]
Sarah: Gee, why are your bellies covered up?
Rusty: It's fall weather and you should wear a sweater to keep it warm and protected,
Sarah: But my lucky belly is recovered. [lifts up her cheerleader outlet to reveal the rest of her stomach] See? Bite marks are gone. The belly is poison-free. I'm cured!
[Rusty gives her a sweater and puts it on]
Rusty: Frisky and I will give you a belly rub when we get home.
Frisky: And a kiss on your favorite spot too.
Rusty: Come ride with us on the class float.
[Crowning The Homecoming Queen]
[My Girl is played by the Marching Band, as the homecoming court marches down one at a time:
Mr. Pines: And now, the moment you've all been waiting for. The crowning of the homecoming queen. The queen will be crowned by last year's queen, Melissa Hope.
[Melissa walks down and takes off her crown]
Mr. Pines: Ms. Hope, your reign as Homecoming Queen has come to an end. And now, we will like to announce our first runner up. Our first runner up is.......Robin McCobb!
Mr. Pines: And now, the Homecoming Queen is......Erica Smith!
[Cheers and applause]
[Melissa puts the crown on Erica's head and Erica is given the banner and flowers and sits in the Homecomming Queen chair. Moments later, Mr. Pines arrives.]
Mr. Pines: Okay, folks. I do have to apologize.
[The crowd reacts]
Mr. Pines: The first runner up is Miss Smith.
[The crowd reacts]
Mr. Pines: The homecoming Queen is...Miss McCobb!
Robin's First Job
LeMar: Hi, Robin.
Robin: Hi, LeMar.
LeMar: What can I help you with today?
Robin: I am interested in being a temporary librarian.
LeMar: You don't have to take my word for it. Come with me.
[Robin goes into LeMar's office]
LeMar: The reason I needed someone to run the library for a week cause I will be going on vacation.
Robin: What for?
LeMar: To take a break from working and spend time with my family. So, you are interested in being a librarian?
[Sarah, Lisa, and Cody visit the children's section where they take out a book]
Sarah: Baby Whale?
Lisa: I know that song. It's based on a song about a family of whales. [sings] Baby whale, la-la-la-la-la-la. Baby whale, la-la-la-la-la-la. Baby whale, la-la-la-la-la-la. Baby whale.
Cody: Oooh. Let's open the book.
[Lisa open the book]
Sarah and Cody: Baby whale, la-la-la-la-la-la.
Baby whale, la-la-la-la-la-la.
Baby whale, la-la-la-la-la-la.
Sarah and Lisa: Mommy whale, la-la-la-la-la-la.
Mommy whale, la-la-la-la-la-la.
Mommy whale, la-la-la-la-la-la.
[In the circulation desk, Robin hears the singing as she is about to scan a patron's library card]
Patron: What's going on?
Robin: I think it's a group of kids.
[She scans the library book and prints out the receipt slip]
Robin: Due back in one week.
Patron: Thank you.
[Robin then sees the three kids dancing the song]
Sarah, Lisa, and Cody: Belly whale, la-la-la-la-la-la.
Belly whale, la-la-la-la-la-la.
Belly whale, la-la-la-la-la-la.
[Robin walks up to them]
Sarah, Lisa, and Cody: Yes?
Robin: You're too loud. Can you please go to the sensory room? [directs the three kids to the sensory room]
[On Saturday, LeMar returns from vacation to see Robin checking out a book to Anne and Marie]
Robin: Here you go you two. It's due back in two weeks. Plenty of time to read.
Anne and Marie: Thank you, Miss Robin.
LeMar: Hi, Robin.
Robin: Hi, LeMar. [starts to laugh]
LeMar: Come on, what's the joke. [begins to laugh]
[All of the patrons begin laughing]
LeMar: [laughs] The library is starting to turn into a joke book.
Robin: [laughs] I wonder where all the laughing is coming from.
LeMar: Let's go check the climate control.
[As they go check the climate control system, they sniff the system and they continue laughing hysterically]
Robin: Let's call Hamilton!
LeMar: Good idea! We'll do it outside!
[At the police station, Chief Hamilton's office, Hamilton's phone rings, and Hamilton answers it]
Hamilton: CPD. Hamilton.
LeMar: Hi, Chief Hamilton. This is LeMar Hutton at the library. Someone piped in laughing gas into my climate control system.
Hamilton: I'll be right over, LeMar.
[She, her brother and Tobey wear masks]
[While reviewing the videotape, they see Lord Morlock, Thump, Orcro, and Spyler damaging the system]
LeMar: Those Morlocks hacked into the library in the middle of the night!
Robin: All the doors were locked up. And I think Morlock cast a spell to unlock the doors.
Tobey: Those goons are nothing but troublemakers.
Christmas Don't Be Gone
[After taking Sarah home from school.]
Rusty: You know, Sarah. I am dreaming of a white Christmas. Christmas that has snow on the ground.
Sarah: Yeah. Miss Love told me that earlier.
Frisky: Hopefully, it should snow by the time our Christmas Jamboree happens on Christmas Eve. Think about it.
[She and Rusty lift up Sarah's sweater to reveal only her dress]
Rusty: That's funny. Where's the belly?
Sarah: Oops! [runs into the bathroom to remove her dress, then leaves wearing only a sweater]
Frisky: Okay, Sarah. Let's reveal the belly.
[She and Rusty lift up Sarah's sweater again this time exposing her stomach. They rub it which she giggles]
Sarah: [giggles] Now kiss that lucky spot.
[Frisky kisses Sarah's middle who continues giggling. Just as she lifts Frisky's sweater up]
Frisky: Oh, Sarah. Rusty and I have to go to the High School. You can give me a belly rub later.
Mr. Pines: [over the PA system] May I have your attention, please. The ice storm has passed and snow is falling on the ground. As we get ready to begin our Holiday Break, we would like to thank our Honor Society for making our Holiday Celebration possible. The society has raised $1,000 to benefit the homeless shelter which they will have a Merry Christmas. Our sophomore team in the basketball tournament is our champions this year. We would like to thank Mrs. Eagle; wife of Mr. Eagle for providing the play-by-play throughout our tournament, despite our gym floor was opened about a quarter way by accident from an unknown critter. Randal has managed to turn all the ice into snow and put snow shovels on the school buses. We would like to thank him for saving the ice storm. Professor Al predicts we're going to have a White Christmas!
[Cheers and applause]
Mr. Pines: Have a wonderful winter break! We will see you back on January 2, and be ready to learn! Before we ring the final bell for the holidays, I, along with Senior Class President Robin McCobb, Senior Class Sergeant-At-Arms Johnny Boyett, their beloved critter friends, Buttons, Bearbette, Rusty and Frisky, and the magical old-timer, Randal would like to recite one of the most beloved Christmas poems of all time.
[Johnny, Robin, the cub couples and Randal go into the microphone]
Mr. Pines: 'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a critter was stirring, we thought it was dark;
Johnny: The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there;
Robin: The children and critters were nestled all snug in their beds;
While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads;
Buttons: And moms and pops in their 'kerchiefs, and we in our caps,
Have just settled our critters brains for a long winter's nap,
Bearbette: When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
We sprang from our beds to see what was the matter.
Rusty: Away to the window we flew like a flash,
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash.
Frisky: The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow,
Gave a luster of midday to objects below,
Randal: When what to our wondering eyes did appear,
But a miniature sleigh and eight tiny rein-deer,
Mr. Pines: With a little old driver so lively and quick,
we knew in a moment he must be Santa.
Johnny: More rapid than eagles his coursers they came,
And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name:
Randal: [imitates Santa Claus] "Now, Dasher! now, Dancer! now Prancer and Vixen!
On, Comet! on, Cupid! on, Donner and Blitzen!
To the top of the porch! to the top of the wall!
Now dash away! dash away! dash away all!"
Buttons: As leaves that before the wild hurricane fly,
When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky;
Rusty: So up to the housetop the coursers they flew
With the sleigh full of toys, and Santa Claus too—
Bearbette: And then, in a twinkling, we heard on the roof
The prancing and pawing of each little hoof.
Frisky: As we drew in my head, and was turning around,
Down the chimney, Santa came with a bound.
Johnny: He was dressed all in fur, from his head to his foot,
And his clothes were all tarnished with ashes and soot;
Robin: A bundle of toys he had flung on his back,
And he looked like a peddler just opening his pack.
Mr. Pines: His eyes—how they twinkled! His dimples, how merry!
His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry!
Johnny: His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow,
And the beard on his chin was as white as the snow;
Buttons: The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth,
And the smoke, it encircled his head like a wreath;
Bearbette: He had a broad face and a little round belly
That shook when he laughed, like a bowl full of jelly.
Frisky: He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf,
And we laughed when we saw him, in spite of myself;
Rusty: A wink of his eye and a twist of his head
Soon gave us to know we had nothing to dread;
Buttons: He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work,
And filled all the stockings; then turned with a jerk,
Mr. Pines: And laying his finger aside of his nose,
And giving a nod, up the chimney he rose;
Robin: He sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle,
Johnny: And away they all flew like the down of a thistle.
Randal: But we heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight—
All: "Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!"
[The school bell rings and the students are dismissed]
[Last lines of the episode. The credits roll while Johnny, Robin, Jonesy, and all the critters sing We Wish You A Merry Christmas. After the credits end...]
Johnny and Robin: From all of us...!
Jonesy: To all of you!
All with critters: A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!
Freddie: Pop, why are you blindfolding me for?
Philbert: Shhh! I got a surprise for you.
Freddie: What is it?
Philbert: You'll find out when we get there.
[As Leppinwolf arrives in Fort Caulderdale, they pull into a mansion]
Freddie: Sounds like we are in Fort Caulderdale to me.
Philbert: Yep. Don't take it off yet.
[They enter through the backyard and see a swimming pool. Philbert takes off Freddie's shirt and blindfold and sees Medora [in her bikini] getting out of the pool]
Freddie: Holy smokes! Is that for me?
Philbert: No son. That's for me.
Freddie: Look at that chick. Her bikini is really beautiful.
Medora: [walks up to Philbert] Hi, honey. [gasps as she looks at Freddie] This must be your son, Freddie.
Philbert: Yep. [to Freddie] Freddie, this is your future step-mother, Medora.
Freddie: [stammering] Hi, Medora. [to Philbert] She has a cute belly.
Philbert: [chuckles] Freddie is waiting to see you. I've first met Medora when she rescued me while I was fishing.
[Medora shows the two the engagement ring]
Philbert: She lives in Fort Caulderdale and took me right here and we got engaged.
Medora: We are getting married very soon.
[Just then a familiar raccoon [in an ocean blue bikini] runs towards Freddie, tackles him, and blows a raspberry on his stomach. Freddie then looks at the raccoon.]
Raccoon: Do you remember me?
[A flashback sequence is shown where Freddie dated the raccoon. He looks at her stomach.]
[He stares at Sophia's middle which she giggles then blows another raspberry on Freddie's stomach]
Freddie: Sophia! [blows a raspberry on Sophia's stomach] It's you!
[The two hug]
Medora: Sophia, how did you know Freddie?
Sophia: Years ago. I first met him when he was laying down in Chucklewood Lake.
Medora: Oh, I see. Hey, let's go for a swim.
Freddie and Sophia: Yeah!
[They touch each other's middles, jump into the pool and splash at each other.]
Medora: My daughter and Freddie, they both love each other.
Philbert: [presses Medora's middle] Let's go jump in.
[Medora and Philbert jump in the pool and with their children they splash at each other]
[Underwater, Freddie, Philbert, Medora, and Sophia explore the underwater cove. Suddenly, a sting-ray appears and pierces Philbert in the chest as he starts to go down, Freddie and Medora catch him and swam back up to the boat. They put Philbert down. Medora quickly drives the boat to shore. Freddie then feels his father.]
Medora: [checking Philbert's pulse] Oh my gosh. Freddie, call for an ambulance. I am going to perform CPR.
[As she does...]
Sophia: Isn't he gonna make it?
Medora: Probably--[looks at the attack on the stingray] OH MY GOSH!!!
Sophia: What happened!?
Medora: Some sort of fish attacked him!
[Suddenly, the ambulance arrives]
[At the critter hospital, Philbert wakes up very slowly and looks at his son]
Freddie: Hi, Pop.
Philbert: I don't think I am gonna make it.
Freddie: W-w-w-what? You will.
Philbert: I remember the day you were born. You were a good critter. I remember the time we moved to Chuckewood when your mom died.
Philbert: I remember taking you on a ride on Leappinwolf. I remember we defeated Zak Vaderman and his gang.
Freddie: I will remember that. And so will our friends.
Philbert: You're all grown up now. You're the man...of the house. And now, as I get ready to take my final breath, we must...go..on our separate ways. Goodbye, Freddie. I love you. I love you. [flat lines and dies]
Freddie: Pop? POP!!! P-p-p-pop! Please don't go! Please don't go! [cries]
[Medora and Sophia both cry]
[Freddie opens his father's garage and sees Leappinwolf. He looks at it carefully and studies it.]
Freddie: How would I be able to ride Leappinwolf?
Freddie: Medora, Leappinwolf is very special to my father. I remember he bought the motorcycle when he was my age. He took very care of it over the years. I wanted to ride it and follow his steps. How would I do it?
Medora: Well, do you have your driver's license?
Freddie: Not yet.
Medora: I am going to take you to motorcycle school. This will teach you how to ride a motorcycle and learn the rules of the road.
[Final scene. Freddie takes Sophia and Buttons on a ride around the suburb and Chucklewood. As the three head to Philbert's grave]
Philbert's ghost: Freddie, you are a Freddie Boy.
Freddie: [hugs his father's tombstone] Thanks, pop. [cries] I love you.
Miss Love Talks To Parents About Death
Miss Love: Good evening, I'm Charlotte Love.
Lester: I'm Lester Eli Gator.
Medora: And I'm Medora.
Miss Love: Tonight's episode is not for children to watch alone. Anything human is mentionable, and anything mentionable can be manageable. Lester and Medora had experiences of a life changing topic of a loved one: Death. When we see a person's death, it's best to have an adult close by. [The words "PARENTAL DISCRETION IS ADVISED" appear] So please make sure you get an adult with you. Tonight on Growing Up, we are going to talk about and how to cope with death.
[In Sweet Water Valley, Buttons heads over to his grandmother's cave. His mother and aunt walk to him.]
Buttons: Hi, mom. Hi, Aunt Francine.
Bridgette: Good thing you've responded to my telegram.
Francine: There's something we have to tell you.
Buttons: How's Gram?
Bridgette: Gram has been diagnosed with cancer.
Buttons: Cancer!? How do they know that?
Bridgette: They did lots of tests on her. She has a hysterectomy and the blood inside her has cancer.
Buttons: Oh, no! What's a hysterectomy?
Francine: The surgical removal of the uterus. It may also involve the removal of the cervix, ovaries, fallopian tubes, and other surrounding structures. After surgery and diagnosis, the cancer is inoperable. Especially her Alzheimer's Disease.
Buttons: WHAT!? [starts to cry] Does this mean she will die?
Francine: Yep. She's not going to be with us anymore in a few months.
Bridgette: The doctors gave her only weeks to live.
Buttons: How many?
Francine: About a month or two.
Buttons: Oh my! [hugs his mother]
[At the condo, as Jeanette and Rosie change into their bikini, Vixey looks at their stomachs]
Rusty: [gasps] Look! Vixey's trying to talk!
George: That's it, Vixey. Say "belly"
Rosie: Say "belly"
Jeanette: C'mon, Vixey!
Rusty: Say it!
Vixey: [stutters for a bit] Belly!
[The family celebrates]
Rusty: She said her first word!
[Vixey runs over to Jeanette and climbs to her bikini top presses her chest]
Jeanette: That's not my belly! That's my chest.
Vixey: Chest? [slides her hand down to Jeanette's stomach then presses the middle] Belly!
Jeannette: [giggles] Yes! That's my belly!
[Vixey then leaps to Rosie's stomach and kisses the middle]
Rosie: [giggling] She kissed my belly, George!
George: [chuckles] Reminds you of someone, Rusty?
[Vixey then presses Rusty's stomach]
Rusty: [giggles] Yeah. Sarah will get a lucky belly press when Vixey sees it.
[Vixey then points to the water in Jeanette's swimming pool]
Rosie: No, that's water.
[Rosie puts Vixey on her back as they walk to the pool steps of the pool. Rosie sits down on the bottom step of the pool.]
[Rosie splashes herself which they both giggle]
Jeanette: Let's go swimming!
[She jumps into the pool and swims to the middle step. Vixey holds onto Rosie and Jeanette's hands as they cruise around the pool like a speedboat.]
George: Good girl, Vixey!
Rusty: Aunt Stacy will teach her how to swim when the time comes.
[While eating dinner, Jeanette gives Vixey a BBQ chicken drumstick and some corn]
Rosie: No, Vixey. That's chicken.
[She takes the chicken and attempts to put it on her mother's stomach. Rosie stops her.]
Rosie: No, no. A piece of chicken is food. You eat the chicken. Not put it on my belly.
Rosie: Here, let Aunt Jeanette show you how to eat the chicken.
[Vixey sees corn and takes a piece]
Rosie: That's not a belly. That's corn.
[Jeanette eats her corn on the cob]
Rosie: I gave her pieces of corn to start off. When she gets older, she'll have corn on the cob.
[Vixey takes a piece of corn and just as she puts it on Jeanette's middle.]
Jeanette: Vixey! [slaps her paw off] You eat the corn! Not put it on my belly, nor your mommy or daddy. A piece of corn is food!
[Vixey climbs out of her bed and tiptoes to the couch where her mother is sleeping. She removes the blankets and lifts up her mother's pajamas and kisses her stomach]
Vixey: Belly. Belly. Belly. Belly. Belly.
[Rosie slowly wakes up and looks at Vixey]
Rosie: Vixey, back to bed! [takes Vixey back to the spare bedroom and puts her on the bed] Not one more sound! [closes the door and locks up the door]
[The next morning, while the family loads up for the beach]
Rosie: [wearing her t-shirt and bikini bottom] I can't believe what happened to Vixey last night. [lifts up her shirt and points to her middle] I didn't sleep a wink last night cause Vixey kissed my belly and kept saying "belly" all night long!
Jeanette: [bikini] Well, I'll lock up the door tonight. Believe me, very young critters sometimes make sounds. When they get older, she'll get quieter.
Rusty: Just think, Vixey. We're taking you to the beach.
Rusty: Yes. Just think: Water, waves, sand.
[As George sets up the beach chairs, Vixey feels the sand]
Rusty: That's not sugar. That's sand.
Rusty: You can do many things with sand.
[After George finishes up the chairs and Rosie and Jeannette lay down the beach blankets]
George: There. Anybody want some beer?
Rosie: [taking off her shirt] George, with Vixey nearby, I think we shall stay away from the beer. I'll just have a cherry soda.
Jeanette: I'll have orange soda.
[Rosie puts on suntan lotion on Vixey]
Rosie: That's suntan lotion. It keeps you protected from the sun.
[She puts suntan lotion on Rosie's stomach and draws a circle around the middle. She then rubs her stomach and fills up the middle with suntan lotion.]
Rosie: [giggles] Thanks.
[Vixey walks over to Jeanette and kisses her middle and covers it up with suntan lotion]
Jeanette: [giggles] Thanks.
[George relaxes in his beach chair while Rosie and Jeanette lay down on their blankets, Vixey starts covering up her mother with the help of his brother]
Vixey: [looks at her mother's bikini top, whispering] Belly. [puts sand on her chest]
Rusty: No, Vixey. You start with the legs first, then the belly, then the chest. Then, Mom will be covered up in sand. I'll help you out.
[In time-lapse, Rusty helps Vixey cover up their mother and aunt]
[While the family takes a walk on the ocean]
George: Look, Vixey.
George: Those aren't fishes! They are surfers.
[Suddenly, a surfer gets wiped out and ends up right next to the family. The surfer is revealed to be Bruce.]
Bruce: That's me, Rusty. How's your little sister doing?
Rusty: She's doing okay. She said her first word which is [points to his stomach] belly.
Bruce: Wow! Amazing! How's Buttons doing?
Rusty: We kinda spread out now. The cave is now divided into two sections. One section has me and my family and the old secret shortcut is Buttons' apartment. We took Vixey on her first vacation ever and we choose right here in Coytona. My Aunt Jeanette has a condo.
Bruce: Amazing. I've been taking a timeout from my studies and been training in the off-season after the Nanami Orcas missed the playoffs again!
Rusty: That's terrible. Things should come up next season. Well, Bruce, we gotta head back to our beach chairs. Vixey is gonna get sunburn any minute now and we must apply more suntan lotion.
Bruce: Nice meeting you, Rusty. [to Vixey] And you, Vixey.
[George gets out a bottle of suntan lotion from his pocket]
George: Here, Rusty.
[Rusty puts suntan lotion on Vixey]
Crush: [kicks Bruce's rear end] Hey, Butt!
Bruce: Butt?! My name is not Butt!
Crush: [realizes his mistake] Wait a minute, you're not Buttons! Who the heck are you?!
Bruce: I'm his cousin, Bruce! Who in incarnation are you?
Crush: My name is Crush! And I believe to be a better surfer than you. So, Bruce, let me borrow that little surfboard of yours! [pokes Bruce's stomach, pulls down his swimming trunks, kicks his rear end, snickers then steals his surfboard] Sucker!
Bruce: HEY, NO FAIR! I just got that surfboard weeks ago!
[While covering Vixey with sand, Rusty witnesses what has happened.]
Rusty: Oh no! Crush!
Rusty: [to Vixey] He's the nephew of our old rival, Claude and a mean coyote. [to Jeanette, George, and Rosie] Mom, Pop, Aunt Jeanette, watch Vixey. I have an emergency to take care of.
Jeanette, George, and Rosie: Yes, Rusty!
Rusty: Hang on, Bruce, I'm coming!
[He and Bruce start to chase Crush by throwing a sand rock on his rear end. A chief lifeguard, Eris Qoone looks through her binoculars. She blows the whistle and then summons her crew and the police. As the two approach the ocean.]
Crush: You'll never catch me, sucker!
[Just as he starts surfing, the lifeguards and police frisk him with lifesavers and throws him out of the water.]
Crush: Hey! Why the heck are you interrupting my surfing!?
[The police pull Crush's swimming trunks down, they kick his rear end (turning red)]
Officer: Well, Mr. Crush. What do you have to say for yourself?
Crush: I am surfer champion.
Eris: Not anymore!
[The police wraps chains around Crush's stomach, then slaps the cuffs on his hands, putting them on his rear end]
Officer: You're under arrest for theft and assault. You have the right to remain--
Crush: SILENT! I know my rights. Anything I say, blah-blah-blah-blah! I have the right to an attorney! I'll get my lawyer!
[The police then escorts Crush away]
[At the tribunal...]
Judge Marion: Crush, due to your long and extensive criminal record, you will be sent back to prison for five more years! [bangs gavel]
Bearbette and Frisky: [gasps] Rusty and Vixey!
Frisky: How's the sea with Vixey?
Rusty: We tried out her bathing suit, we took a tour with her and we even saw Bruce.
Bearbette: Bruce? How's he doing?
Rusty: He's doing good despite the Orcas have clinched another losing season. He's been surfing nowadays until Crush came along and stole his surfboard briefly.
Bearbette: I heard he is in jail for an extended time.
Frisky: Maybe he's gonna get sentenced to death row like his uncle did.
Rusty: Oh, I almost forgot! Vixey said her first word while we are at Aunt Jeanette's condo.
Rusty: Can you guess what Vixey's first word is?
Rusty: Here's a hint, lift your pajamas up.
[The girls lift up their pajamas to expose their stomachs]
Vixey: Belly! [runs up to Sarah who rubs her stomach]
Sarah: [giggles] That's my lucky belly!
Rusty: Good girl, Vixey. [points to Sarah's middle] Now see if you can kiss right here. That little round spot. You kissed Mom's, you kissed Aunt Jeannette's, now see if you can kiss Sarah's.
[Vixey stares closely at Sarah's stomach then slowly goes towards the middle]
Sarah: Yes. That's the spot.
[Vixey presses the middle, Sarah giggles]
Sarah: [giggles] No. No. That's not a kiss!
Vixey: [slowly goes towards Sarah's middle again] Belly...belly...belly!
[She kisses it and Sarah giggles, Vixey rubs Sarah]
Sarah: [giggles excitedly] My belly is like jelly!
[Vixey continues kissing Sarah's middle]
Rusty: Vixey won't stop rubbing Sarah. [to Frisky] She said the word while wearing her bathing suit.
[Rusty kisses Frisky's stomach]
Frisky: Do I look like Sarah?
[She, Rusty and Bearbette laugh]
Miss Love: Good evening, I'm Miss Love.
LeMar: And I'm LeMar Hutton.
Miss Love: Tonight's episode is not for children to watch alone. When children see frightening things, it's best to have an adult close by.
LeMar: The episode you are about to see contains images of violence that may be shocking and offensive. We strongly recommend watching this program with an adult close by.
Miss Love: Throughout this episode, LeMar and I are going to be talking about sad and scary things. [the words "PARENTAL DISCRETION IS ADVISED" appear on the screen] So again, please make sure you have an adult with you or watch it as a family.
Johnny: [while running to Mr. Pines' Office] Principal Pines!
Mr. Pines: Yes, Johnny!
Johnny: There are gunshots ranging out from upstairs. I heard students screaming! Sound the alarm!
[In the Fox Family's cave, Rusty bathes Vixey. Vixey touches the faucet.]
Vixey: Belly! [turns the water on, Rusty turns it off]
Rusty: That's not a belly. That's a faucet. You use it to turn the water on and off.
Rusty: Yes. That's enough water for you.
[Suddenly, a gunshot sounds]
Rusty: What's that sound?
[He hears another gunshot]
Rusty: I think it's coming from Buttons' apartment.
Rusty: My best friend. He lives downstairs. I'll be right back. [walks down to Buttons' apartment] Buttons!?
Buttons: Yes, Rusty.
Rusty: Are you practicing shooting in the cave?
Buttons: No. I was watching a movie.
Quacker: QUACK! Breaking News: Nora Owl has been shot.
Buttons and Rusty: WHAT!? Nora is shot!?
Buttons: Oh no!
Quacker: Jonesy and Macquarie are on the scene.
Rusty: We gotta report this to the girls. Come on!
[Girl Cubs' Cave]
Bearbette: WHAT!? Franklin's Aunt is shot!?
Quacker: No further details yet.
Freddie: This just in: Nora Know It All is dead.
Bearbette: No, Freddie! She is shot and is being rushed to the hospital.
Frisky: She's not dead yet!
[At The Little Critter School, Miss Love watches the kids play on the playground until a gun touches her back]
Shooter: Don't make a sound!
[The shooter pulls Miss Love up and pins the shooter]
Miss Love: Who are you? What do you want?
Shooter: Shut up!
Miss Love: I won't do it! GET OUT OF HERE!!!
[The shooter cocks the gun and hits her in the head]
Miss Love: GET OUT OF HERE!!! I MEAN NOW!!!
[Cut to a shot of the playground, the shooter shoots her in the head (off-screen), and then shoots everywhere throughout the entire playground. The class screams and flees back to the school. Sarah, Carlos, and Cody quickly lock up the school.]
Carlos: What should we do?
Sarah: Let's call 911!
Sarah: We have to! Chief Drew taught us that! It's an emergency!
Susan: Where's the phone?
[Cody gives Sarah Miss Love's Critter Phone]
Sarah: Thanks, Cody. [dials 911]
Operator: 911, what your emergency?
Sarah: Miss Love, our teacher at the Little Critter School in Chucklewood was hit in the head by a tall man with a gun!
Operator: A shooter?
Operator: Where was the shooter last seen?
Sarah: At the playground!
Operator: Is Miss Love down?
Sarah: Yes! She is down!
Operator: Okay. We'll call the police and an ambulance on the scene. Little Critter School, Chucklewood?
Sarah: Yes! Hurry!
Operator: We're on our way!
[Later, as the paramedics and police arrive, Mr. Mabor arrives and sees Miss Love]
Mr. Mabor: Miss Love? [looks at her down and feels her not breathing] Oh no! I gotta tell the class!
[He rushes into the school, Paramedic Chief Tyler Wolford examines her]
Wolford: What you got here?
Paramedic: Some sort of gunshot wounded her in the head. What a mess.
Wolford: Let's put her on the stretcher and take her to Macquarie.
[Tobey sniffs the evidence, Lt. Scott sees the damaged playground equipment]
Lt. Scott: Bullets holes all over the equipment.
Tobey: I see shoe prints on the fence. He jumped over the fence and escaped after he damaged the playground equipment.
Hamilton: Come on, crew, let's go find him.
[Inside the school..]
Mr. Mabor: Class?
Class: Mr. Mabor!
Mr. Mabor: Have you heard about Miss Love?
Sarah: A shooter shot her in the head! I called 911 for help.
Mr. Mabor: That's a good thing to do. Now, I am gonna send you home so that the police and I can investigate the attack.
[In Fort Caulderdale, in the evening, Medora daydreams about Freddie by putting sand on her stomach and hums a snippet of Timbaland's The Way I Are]
Sophia: [imitates Freddie] Sophia, Sophia, will you marry me? [puts a water bottle on her middle and squeezes it as if Freddie was blowing raspberries on her stomach] [normal voice] Yes. And for our honeymoon, someplace south.
[She pours water on her middle and uses the bottle again to blow it. She then pours water on her bikini top and lays down flat on her stomach and using her beach blanket, she hugs it, pretending to make love with Freddie. Suddenly, a hand pulls Sophia's tail, slaps her rear end, clonks her in the head and a bag captures her and is taken by the shooter who snickers. Sophia muffled screams in the bag. Just as the shooter puts her into a stolen truck, the police arrive and clonks the shooter.]
Officer: All right, all right. Drop that bag.
Shooter: What the heck do you want?
[The police frisk the shooter dropping the bag and cuffs him]
Officer: The judge will talk to you about what you did. You have the right to remain silent. Anything---
Shooter: SHUT UP!
Officer: YOU, SHUT UP! If you do not shut up, anything you say can be held in a court of law. You have the right to an attorney.
Shooter: [shocked] Attorney!? But I don't have one!
Officer: Then we will provide one for you. [throws the shooter into the police car and is driven away]
[Another officer, grabs the bag and takes out Sophia who is bruised and deep breathes]
Officer 2: Come on. We'll take you to the police station.
Walter: Critters, the flash is apparently official. Nora "Know It All" Owl died some thirty minutes ago.
[All of the critters react and begin crying]
Frisky: Oh no.
Buttons: She was a know it all.
[The cub couples pat their folks on the back]
Walter: Franklin and Christina have just left the hospital and requested that there will be no funeral for Nora. A memorial service will be held later tonight. Please pray for Nora as well as her fellow owls.
Bailiff: All rise! The case involving Travis is now in session. Judge May Marion presiding.
Judge Marion: Thank you.
Bailiff: Please, be seated.
Judge Marion: Mr. Travis, I understand you've gone on a spy and shoot spree.
Judge Marion: Spying and shooting at the school, Chucklewood and Fort Caulderdale.
Judge Marion: Let us begin the testifying with Franklin and Christina.
Franklin: Your honor, me and my wife were taking Aunt Nora to a convention of owls. Then, hours later Travis shot Nora.
Christina: We were screaming bloody murder. We tried to rescue her but Travis shot our feet and we were taken to the E.R.
Frankin: My aunt died hours later. But me and Christina survived.
[A verdict votes him guilty. Travis squeezes Franklin and Christina's neck causing them to choke.]
Travis: I squeezy fool!
[The bailiff pulls Travis away]
Frankin: OUCH! You squeezed my neck!
Christina: Get the bell away from us!
Judge Marion: Order! Order! Jurors?
Verdict #1: Guilty!
Verdict #2: Guilty!
Judge Marion: Five guilty votes! Mr. Pines?
Mr. Pines: Travis ran inside the school and went upstairs to the science hallway, and shot bullets and wounded Mr. Cann, the physics teacher and Mrs. Smiley, the Biology teacher. He then—
Travis: Shut up, you darn principal!
[He attempts to frisk Mr. Pines but the bailiff stops him.]
Judge Marion: ORDER!
[The bailiff pulls Travis back to his position]
Mr. Pines: We then called Hamilton to investigate and saw the videotape, he ran around the school and left far away. The two teachers are still in the hospital and are in critical condition.
[A verdict votes guilty, Travis growls]
Judge Marion: Guilty. Sophia, what happened?
Sophia: One evening, as the sun was setting, I was daydreaming about Freddie, my boyfriend and then Travis spanked my butt and captured me. Then the cops arrived and arrested him. I was badly bruised and they took me to the hospital.
Travis: [staring at Sophia's front] You got nice cleavage, hot chick!
Sophia: Why don't you shut your goldarn mouth up!
Travis: OH YEAH!?
[A verdict votes guilty. As Travis starts to run to Sophia, the bailiff stops him. Judge Marion bangs her gavel repeatedly.]
Judge Marion: Order! So, that's a guilty. Charlotte Love?
Miss Love: [headcast on] During recess time, Travis pointed his gun at my head. He told me to not move a muscle. I told him "no" a countless number of times then he shot me in the head.
Travis: Shut the heck up, woman!
[Travis starts to run to Miss Love, Judge Marion bangs her gavel]
Judge Marion: ORDER! ORDER! ORDER!
[The bailiff breaks up Travis and pushes him back to his position. A verdict votes guilty.]
Judge Marion: Guilty. Chuck Mabor, Scott Hamilton, what did you witness?
Mr. Mabor: I was doing my morning jog in Chucklewood and then I heard screaming from the school. I saw the class fleeing inside the house. I quickly ran to the school and I saw Miss Love down with paramedics. I checked her pulse and she was not breathing. I dismissed the class for the day and I went with Lt. Scott to investigate.
Lt. Scott: We then saw shoeprints on the fence and we spent two hours tracking him down and he escaped Chucklewood.
[Travis pulls Mr. Mabor's tail]
Mr. Mabor: HEY! GET AWAY FROM MY TAIL!
[The bailiff pulls Travis away]
Judge Marion: Order! Order! Order!
Juror: Guilty x 10!
Judge Marion: That's a double guilty to me. That's enough guilty votes for all victims of the murder. The court finds Travis....GUILTY! [bangs gavel] You are sentenced to prison for an indefinite amount of time. [bangs gavel]
[The police slap the cuffs on Travis and escorts him out of the court room. Suddenly, Syco appears and jumps up and bites his rear end hard.]
Officer #1: OH MY GOSH!
Lt. Scott: [looks at Syco] It's that snake!
Officer #1: Smash him, quick!
[He tries to smash Syco's tail but Syco slithers away]
Syco: You missed me!
Hamilton: [gasps] It's Syco!
Lt. Scott: How on earth did he get in here?
Hamilton: I don't know! Let's kill him!
[Other officers chase after him but Syco slithers fast. As they approach the vent, Syco quickly went inside the vent. Lt. Scott grabs his tail but the tail slips away.]
Lt. Scott: Darn!
[Inside the vent...]
Syco: I'll get you next time, Chucklewood Critters-s-s-s!
[Meanwhile, another officer grabs Travis and takes him to the hospital.]
The Ultimate Test
[In the library]
Johnny: Hi, Robin.
Robin: Hi, Johnny. Guess what. I got a letter from Jay U. I am partially accepted but the only thing left to do is to complete the College Entrance Assessment Test. C.E.A.T. for short.
Johnny: That's what Lucas, Dave, and I are going to do here. Prepare for the exam. The last step in order to be accepted at the college.
[LeMar approaches them with books]
LeMar: Hi, guys.
Robin: Hi, LeMar.
LeMar: Preparing for the CEAT?
LeMar: Here are some test-prep books for you to help you prepare and get the best score possible. But, you don't have to take my word for it. Follow me, please.
[They go into a designated room and LeMar hands the students test-prep books.]
LeMar: Here you go. And I'll be back to get you some water bottles in case you need them.
[Meanwhile, Sarah, Lisa, and Cody walk to the room and they saw that the door is open. Lisa reads a sign saying "RESERVED FOR CEAT TESTING. DO NOT ENTER."]
Sarah: I've never heard of that word before?
Cody: Me neither. And the sign says "Do Not Enter."
Sarah: I know what that means. We are not supposed to go in there if the room is in use.
[LeMar goes into the room and gives the students each a water bottle]
All three: Hi, LeMar!
LeMar: Hi, there.
Sarah: What's CEAT?
LeMar: The "College Entrance Assessment Test." It's a test where students in high school take in order to be accepted for college.
Sarah: High school?
LeMar: High School is the last of the three cycles of general education. First, you go to Elementary School. Then, you go to Middle School, also known as Junior High. And then, the third and final cycle is Senior High or High School. Once you've completed all three cycles, you'll receive a diploma and then you'll go into the real world. Now, about the CEAT test. The test has lots and lots of things that you are too young for. You're gonna have to wait years of general education prior to taking this test. You must complete the elementary, middle, and high school levels to do so.
Lisa: But I'm older.
LeMar: [chuckles] No you're not. How about you three come to the children's corner.
Sarah, Cody and Lisa: [singing] Baby whale, la-la-la-la-la-la
Baby whale, la-la-la-la-la-la
LeMar: SHHH! Quietly.
[At the Aquatic Center]
Rosie: Here we are, Vixey. Welcome to your first swimming lesson.
[Vixey presses Rosie's middle]
Rosie: [giggles] Oh, Vixey. You'll give me a belly press later. Let's get changed.
[In the warm pool]
Rosie: [maillot] Hi, Stacy.
Stacy: Hiya, Rose. This must be Vixey.
Rosie: Yes, she is!
Rosie: Yes, that's water. The pool is smaller than Aunt Jeanette's.
[Vixey attempts to jump into the water but is stopped by Stacy who blows her whistle]
Rosie: Wait, Vixey! Never jump ahead of the lesson.
Stacy: I think she's getting way too excited. For the first month, Rosie, you will accommodate Vixey in the pool. I will teach her the primary skills of buoyancy, propulsion, and breath control. And then, once she passes this section, I will teach her the basics of swimming.
Vixey: [points to Stacy's maillot] Belly!
Rosie: [laughs] No. You don't see her belly for swimming classes.
[That evening, while Rosie bathes Vixey]
Vixey: [takes the brush and brushes her mother's middle] Belly. Belly.
Rosie: [giggles] Vixey! I'm bathing you. Not me!
[Vixey then splashes the tub]
Rosie: Vixey! This is a bathtub. Not a swimming pool.

Mr. Mabor: This must be your daughter.
Rosie: Yes, it is. This is Vixey.
Rosie: No, Vixey. That's Mr. Mabor. He's a teacher.
Mr. Mabor: She's a rascal. [gives Rosie papers] So, the Little Critter School is the two year school where younger critters like Vixey learn lots of things. She will meet different young critters called classmates and make new friends. There will be field trips. holiday parties, songs, snacks, monthly swim days, and gross motor skills. The teacher is Miss Love which I am a colleague of hers. The term begins in the fall, lots of time to get ready.
Rosie: My niece will be graduating in a few months, so she'll teach Vixey what school is like.
Vixey: [goes under the table and uses her right paw to press the middle] Belly!
Rosie: [pulls the paw off] Not now! [picks up Vixey and takes her to her bedroom] Mr. Mabor and I are getting you registered for school.
[Rosie puts Vixey on her bed]
Rosie: I'll be right back. [returns to the table] Sorry about that. She thinks my belly is a plaything.
Mr. Mabor: [laughs] So, fill these forms out and she'll be ready.
Mr. Mabor: Okay. So, watch your mail and a phone call from me in the coming months for orientation.
Rosie: Vixey can't wait for school!
[Out of Vixey's bedroom comes Vixey herself and she runs to Mr. Mabor's tail, using it as a brush]
Vixey: Brushy! Brushy! Belly brush!
Mr. Mabor: Vixey! That's not a brush. That's my tail. [snatches it back]
Rosie: She's gonna learn lots of words soon.
Mr. Mabor: [to Vixey] I'll be seeing you in four months. [presses Vixey's stomach who giggles]
Rosie: Oh, my niece loves that too. She also loves to kiss my sister-in-law's belly too.
Mr. Mabor: I see that.
Rosie: So thanks for stopping by, Mr. Mabor.
Mr. Mabor: Will do, I'll see you later. [leaves]
Vixey: Goodbye! [pins Rosie down and presses her stomach repeatedly] Belly! Belly! Belly!
Rosie: [giggles] Vixey!
Vixey: Belly! [kisses Rosie's middle]
Rosie: Vixey! [giggles as Vixey keeps pressing] Okay! Stop it! [stops Vixey as she lays down on her lap. Rosie looks at her watch] It's time for a swim with your Aunt Stacy.
Vixey: Swimming lesson?
Rosie: You will play more on my belly later.

Vixey: [tries to kiss Rosie's covered up stomach] Belly!
Rosie: [stops her and giggles] My belly is covered up, Vixey!

Kiara: Yes, sir! You're not going to the Cat Cage. Instead, which of these people do you want to be sent to the cat cage?
Freddie: Ramona, I know you love to see my butt. But, you're going to the Cat Cage!
Kiara: What do you gotta say, Ramona?
[Ramona tugs Freddie's tail]
Ramona: [giggles] Nice butt, Freddie!

Freddie: [whispering] Miss it. Miss it. Miss it.
Isabella: I know Franklin is on the $100, he is not a president. Grant is on the $50. [sighs] I'm gonna go with my gut and say "Teddy Roosevelt." I'm not sure.
Kiara: Your answer is Teddy Roosevelt. The correct answer is.... Grover Cleveland!
[Freddie jumps up and down]
Kiara: Freddie, you just won $50,000!
Freddie: YEAH! [kisses Kiara's middle and takes off his shirt and jumps into the pool]

Ramona: I stared at Freddie's butt the whole time!
Syco: What!? You need to concentrate, next time!
[Three months later, Freddie returns to his home, opens his father's attic, and places the engagement ring inside.]

Johnny: Buttons! Rusty!
Robin: Bearbette! Frisky!
Bearbette: I thought we're gonna die!
Frisky: Thank goodness!
[The captain throws another raft on the river and this time picks up the raccoon and mouse couples]
Skeeter: Holy, titanic! You okay, Karen?
Sophia: I can't believe it! I thought my beautiful dress was gonna get soaked.
[Syco pops up from the river and hisses]
Syco: I'll get you next time!
[He slithers into the river]
Bearbette: Oh my! I didn't know Syco damaged our boat.
Eugene: I think he sabotaged the controls.
Rusty: So it was Syco! Man, next time we see that snake, we will arrest him for sure!
[The boat approaches the theme park]
Captain: Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to after prom!
[The couples enter the theme park. Meanwhile, Lester and Sam are on their own raft.]
Lester: I can't believe it! Syco the Snake slithered into our boat.
Sam: I would like to see that snake be smashed into pieces or get arrested.
Lester: I have had enough of that snake of all my time. It's too late to head back home.
Sam: Should we spend the night here?
[A montage is then shown as Love from Robin Hood starts playing as the cub couples, Freddie/Sophia, Skeeter/Karen ride various rides.]
Nancy Adams: Love, it seems like only yesterday.
You were just a child at play.
Now you're all grown up inside of me.
Oh how fast those moments flee.
Once we watched a lazy world go by,
now the day seems to fly.
Life is brief, but when it's gone
Love goes on and on.
[The instrumental bridge loops as we cut to the Ferris Wheel which Johnny and Robin ride on. As the ride stops, with Johnny and Robin on the very top. Robin lays down on Johnny's head. Johnny gets out the engagement ring.]
Johnny: Robin, I...I...
Robin: Yes, Johnny?
Johnny: What a beautiful night.
Johnny: Would you...would you....[stammers and picks up Robin's hand] marry me?
Robin: Johnny....yes. [puts the engagement ring on her finger]
[In the Tunnel of Love, Bearbette lays down on Buttons' shoulder. As the ride goes through the tunnel, Buttons takes out an engagement ring and whispers into Bearbette's ear.]
Buttons: Bearbette, will you marry me?
[Bearbette wakes up and silently puts the engagement ring on her finger]
[In the Chapel of Love...]
Minister: [to Skeeter] Would thou love her? Comfort her? Honor her in sickness and in health? As long as you both shall live?
Skeeter: I will.
Minister: I now pronounce you...husband and wife.
[Skeeter and Karen kiss]
[In the Carousel...]
Rusty: Frisky, I remember the day I first met you.
Rusty: [takes out an engagement ring] I wish that I would like to be with you forever.
Frisky: [gasps] Is that the Wishing Stone?
Rusty: Sort of though. But, but, Will you....marry me?
Frisky: [pauses for a minute as the ride goes in motion] Yes.
[She puts the ring on her finger]
[In the Rollo-Coaster. As the train car starts to go up the hill...]
Freddie: Sophia, I... What a night we are having.
Freddie: But, will you...[takes out the engagement ring]....marry me?
[As the car starts to go down the hill]
Sophia: [puts the ring on her finger] Yes.
[The montage goes to all the newly-engaged couples taking a stroll around the park]
Nancy Adams: Love goes on and on and on...
Once we watched a lazy world go by.
Now the days seem to fly.
Life is brief, but when it's gone.
Love goes on and on.
Joe: Good evening. I'm Joe Rogan. Tonight's episode contains extreme stunts which may be too sensitive for some viewers. Parental discretion is strongly recommended. The stunts have been designed and supervised by trained professionals. They are extremely dangerous and should not be attempted by anyone, anywhere, anytime!
[At the boy cubs' cave, the cub couples (sitting in lawn chairs) talk about Fear Factor]
Frisky: [reading the article in Critter Health Magazine] Fear Factor, a show where greatest fears can become a reality. Compete in six extreme stunts and win $100,000.
Buttons: I've seen this show a few times already. Where the stunts not only test physically but mentally as well.
Bearbette: Well, I'll be. I remember a long time ago, Freddie did a contest about whether boy cubs or girl cubs are better.
[Clips from Anything You Do? are shown]
Frisky: I remember that. I remember when you and Buttons climbed up trees very high and you slide down the waterline.
Buttons: We had no winner.
Rusty: It was all a bunch of ties.
[Suddenly, Baby Whale plays on Sarah's music player]
Sarah: Baby whale, la-la-la-la-la-la.
Baby whale, la-la-la-la-la-la.
Baby whale, la-la-la-la-la-la.
[She dances near the cub couples]
Rusty: That song! It's Sarah's Baby Whale song! Sarah! Sarah!
[Sarah keeps dancing and singing the whale]
Rusty: Excuse me!
[He slaps Sarah on the shoulder and pins her to the ground]
Sarah: Hey, Rusty! What are you doing!?
[Rusty turns off the player]
Rusty: Do you have headphones?
Rusty: Can you listen to that somewhere else!?
Sarah: What a grouch. [leaves]
Rusty: There. Anyway, If Buttons and Bearbette competed in the contest years ago. We should go on Fear Factor.
Frisky: I'll be.
[Just then, Skeeter and Turner approached them]
Skeeter: What's up, cub couples? Trying out for Fear Factor?
Turner: Skeeter and I are competing as well.
Skeeter: Karen couldn't try out cause she's too afraid.
[While the cub couples take a walk, Syco and Ramona spy on them]
Syco: You hear, Ramona? Once we get someone else to compete on Fear Factor, I will become the richest snake in the world.
[Suddenly, they notice a sound of crunching coming from the trees]
Syco: What's that?
Ramona: I think there is a giant monster hustling through?
Syco: Let me take a look.
[He goes through the bushes and sees two grown-up grizzlies eating the leaves]
Grizzly #1: Hey! What the heck are you doing with our morning meal?
Syco: Umm... I was just going through the trees.
Grizzly #2: What do you want anyway?
Syco: My iguana friend, Ramona and I just wanted to ask someone a favor.
Ramona: We want you to compete on a reality game show called Fear Factor.
Grizzly #1: Fear Factor?
Grizzly #2: It's that show where you can win $100,000 by completing six extreme stunts.
Syco: Y-e-e-s-s-s. We tried out for it but we got disqualified.
Ramona: So we want you to compete.
Grizzly #1: Count us in.
Grizzly #2: We are competing.
Ramona: Very well. Come on, Syco, let's get the heck out of here.
[As Syco and Ramona leave, the grizzlies start to walk towards the boy cubs.]
Bearbette: Syco? What's he doing here?
Buttons: Beats me.
Grizzly #2: Hey, you! Bearbutt!
[The boy cubs face them]
Grizzly #1: It's been a while, Buttons and Rusty.
Rusty: Huh? How did you know it was us?
Grizzly #2: Ummm..., don't you remember us?
Grizzly #1: It's me, Junior.
Grizzly #2: And me, Vinny.
Rusty: We know you two!
Buttons: We thought you've been sent away years ago.
Vinny: We've beaten you a long time ago.
[Clips from Arrival of Fittest are shown]
Junior: And now, we're competing on Fear Factor!
Vinny: And we're gonna win $100,000!
[He kicks Rusty's rear end. Junior kicks Buttons'. They snicker.]
[The boy cubs walk up to the girl cubs]
Bearbette: What happened?
Rusty: We have to face two darn grizzlies.
Buttons: [quivering] Junior and Vinny.
Frisky: Junior and Vinny?
Joe: You four teams have brought here for an important reason. Stare fear in the eye as you compete for $100,000. To win the money, you have to complete six extreme stunts. They not only test you physically but mentally. If you're too afraid to attempt this stunt, you're eliminated. You try a stunt but fail to complete it, you're gone. If you succeed, you will move on to the next round and that much closer to the cash.
[Second stunt. Joe pulls off a cloth revealing a tank full of squid. All of the teams react.]
Frisky: Oh my gosh.
Skeeter: What the heck is this?
Rusty: Do we have to swim in fishes?
Joe: It's more than fishes. This is actually squid. Your partner will be swimming in there looking for a bottle. [shows two bottles] You are going to find a bottle of worms. If the bottle contains sand, you must swim again and look for another one. If the bottle contains worms, you will give it to your man. He will have one minute to fill up all the worms in [pulls a small tank filled with piranha] piranha.
Joe: Using only your mouths.
Bearbette: Oh my!
Joe: If you're too afraid to attempt this stunt, you will be eliminated. If you freak out, vomit, or if you get injured from the piranhas, you're gone. If you succeed, you will move on to the next round.
Joe: Ready, Skeeter?
Joe: In 3...2...1, GO!
[Skeeter jumps into the squid and swims to find a bottle of sand]
[Skeeter swims back in and finds another bottle of sand]
Joe: Sand! Go!
[Just as Skeeter swims back in, he chokes. Turner quickly grabs a bucket and puts it toward Skeeter]
[Skeeter vomits off-screen]
Skeeter: BLAH! BLAH! I will never ever swim in a pool filled with fish again! It's nasty! Turner, take me to Macquarie.
[Bears' turn, Junior and Vinny see Bearbette in her bikini.]
Vinny: Look at that bear. Isn't she cute?
Junior: I can tell that, Vin. She is the hottest bear I've ever seen.
Vinny: Gotta love that body.
[They both stare at her stomach]
Vinny: Cute belly.
Junior: She's the hottest bear I've ever seen.
Vinny: Her perfume smells like honey.
Frisky: Hey, you bears! Bearbette belongs to Buttons.
Vinny: Oh yeah!?
[He goes near Frisky's backside and pulls her tail lifting it up and kicks her rear end]
Frisky: Hey! [slaps Vinny and pokes his stomach] And get away from me, Vinny! It's not nice for a man not related to me to do that.
[As Frisky takes off her shirt to reveal her bikini, Junior and Vinny wolf whistle. A snippet of This Girl by Kungs vs. Cookin' on 3 Burners is played.]
Junior: Look at her body.
Vinny: Yeah. She is really a 10.
[They both stare at her stomach]
Junior: She is really dang hot.
Vinny: The hottest vixen I've ever seen in my life.
Bearbette: [slaps the bears on the shoulders] You goons! Frisky belongs to Rusty. And one more thing, stop making jokes about my stomach when I wear a bikini. After all [shows the engagement ring to them], I belong to Buttons.
Junior: Crazy chick! [kicks Bearbette in the rear end]
Bearbette: Don't you dare call me that! [kicks Junior in the rear end]
Vinny: Cutie bear! [pokes Bearbette's stomach hard and pushes her]
Bearbette: [slaps Vinny] You goon! [kicks Vinny in the rear end] It's inappropriate to kick a woman's butt or push her in the front.
[Frisky swims in the squid and finds a bottle of worms]
Joe: Worms! Go, Rusty!
[Rusty quickly fills the worms up in the piranaha]
Rusty: Ouch! Ouch!
Frisky: Come on, Rusty! You can do it!
[As the timer reaches ten seconds, Rusty quickly grabs the last worm]
[Rusty places the worm into the piranha tank]
Joe: Right on time!
[Frisky hugs Rusty]
Frisky: I knew you could do it, Rusty!
Rusty: Thanks, Frisk. Despite I had two small scars on my muzzle.
Joe: Here's the situation. Since the fox couple completed the stunt and all the others failed it, if you grizzlies complete this stunt, it will be between you and the fox couple for the $100,000. If you grizzles fail it, the fox couple wins $25,000 and all of the other teams will compete for the remaining $75,000.
Junior: No matter what happens, we will see your hot body in your bikini, Vrisky!
Frisky: It's Frisky!
[Junior swims in the squid and gets out a bottle. As he opens it, out comes sand.]
Joe: Sand! Hurry!
[Junior goes back into the squid and gets out another bottle. He opens it to find worms.]
Joe: Worms! Go, Vinny! Go!
[Vinny grabs the worms from his mouth and puts a few in the tank with piranha. Suddenly, the piranhas bite Vinny's muzzle]
Vinny: OUCH! OUCH! MEDIC! [scars appear throughout his mouth] OUCH!
Junior: Don't worry about those scary fish! Just fill 'em up!
Vinny: I can't! My mouth hurts.
[Junior quickly grabs Vinny and rushes him out of the forest]
Joe: I guess Vinny has a fear of the piranhas. The good news is, they are still in it. Rusty and Frisky, since you're the only couple who have completed it, you just won $25,000!
[Rusty and Frisky hug and celebrate]
Joe: Congratulations! And tomorrow, you and the other teams will be competing against each other with the remaining $75,000 and the title of Fear Factor champions. So it's all of you coming back tomorrow. So, get a good night's rest. I'll see you all then!
[Third stunt, during Skeeter and Turner's turn, the grizzlies walk near the girl cubs (both wearing their bikinis)]
Junior: [sniffing Bearbette's fur] Look. She smells like honey.
Vinny: [sniffing Frisky's fur] Smells like perfume.
[The girl cubs both growl.]
[Junior and Vinny see Bearbette while waiting for Buttons with the strobe. They both stare at her middle and wolf whistle]
Junior: I see that bear chick again.
Vinny: She should be on a bikini magazine.
[They get kicked in the rear end by Frisky]
Frisky: Why don't you two bears shut your goldarn mouths up about Bearbette!
[She duct tapes Vinny's mouth but he pokes Frisky's stomach hard and Junior kicks her rear end]
Rusty: Junior, Vinny, leave my girl alone!
[He duct tapes Junior and Vinny's mouth and ties their paws with rubber bands. Frisky shows the two the engagement ring.]
Frisky: I belong to Rusty!
Rusty: That's what you get for poking my girl's stomach or slapping her butt.
[During the foxes' turn, the duct-taped grizzlies walk close to Bearbette's backside. They snicker.]
Buttons: HEY, YOU GRIZZLIES! [slaps them in the rear end] Get away from my sweet Bearbette!
Bearbette: You goons have caused enough trouble!
[Junior pokes Bearbette's stomach hard. Buttons then grabs him and kick his rear end.]
Bearbette: Thats what you get for poking my belly!
[Vinny then kicks Bearbette's rear end. While he attempts to kick her again, Buttons pulls him back and kicks his rear end]
Buttons: Why don't you stop leering at Bearbette's butt or belly! I belong to her!
[Grizzlies' turn. While Vinny gets ready to dive into the pool.]
Joe: The time to beat is 5:55. If you beat that time, you'll send Skeeter and Turner home. Ready?
Junior and Vinny: Ready?
Joe: In 3...2...1...GO!
[Vinny jumps into the water and swims to grab a strobe]
Bearbette: If they do not beat that time, we won't be seeing those grizzlies again.
Frisky: I had enough of their crazy antics about girl critters.
[After Vinny gives the strobe light to Junior, who touches the water with his paws.]
Junior: [shivers] Oooooh. It's cold!
Vinny: Cone on, Junior. Jump! Jump! Jump!
Junior: Temperature is like 40 degrees.
[The other teams chant "JUMP!"]
Joe: JUMP! JUMP! JUMP! What the heck are you doing, Junior?
Junior: I can't get in!
Joe: You have to get in!
[The other teams chant "JUMP!"]
Vinny: Well... [pulls down Junior's swimming trunks]
Frisky: Nice butt, Junior!
[Junior quickly pulls his swimming trunks up and Vinny pushes him into the pool. Junior slowly swims to the chute where places the strobe. Joe's watch reads 5:55.]
Cub couples: Five...four...three...two...one!
[The cub couples, Skeeter and Turner celebrate]
Joe: Congrats, you six! You've made it through this stunt. Let's get out of here and see what tomorrow has in store.
[As Junior and Vinny grab the final strobe light]
Vinny: Where did those bikini chicks go?
Junior: I don't know.
Frisky: Well, those grizzlies are finally done for.
Bearbette: No more body jokes on us. No more smelling of our fur.
Frisky: No more leering at our bellies or behinds.
[In the fifth stunt...]
Joe: Today, you will be bobbing for these. [shows a jar of cockroaches] Cockroaches.
[All of the partners react]
Joe: But, you will not be bobbing them in water. No way! Instead, you will be bobbing for them in this...! [pulls the cloth revealing a table of animal lard]
Bearbette: Oh my!
Rusty: What is this!?
Frisky: Is this cream from hell?
Tuner: Eeeeeeew! Is this cheese!?
Skeeter: Or rotten milk?
Joe: Actually, it's animal lard. You and your partner will alternate bobbing for cockroaches in 10,000 pounds of animal lard using only your mouths and put it into this jar here. You have 90 seconds to complete this stunt. If you're too afraid to attempt this stunt, you're eliminated. If you succeed, you will be in the running for tomorrow's final stunt for $50,000.
[Skeeter and Turner's turn]
Skeeter: No way! No way I'm gonna stick my head in that animal lard.
Turner: Me neither. We are leaving! Bye!
[They both leave]
[In the final stunt, Rusty jumps over tractor-trailers in attempt to rescue Frisky as a runaway train approaches her]
Frisky: Help me, Rusty! Help me!
[Rusty jumps down and unties Frisky at the last second.]
Frisky: Whew! You saved me!
[Rusty and Frisky kiss]
Joe: Ooh. [looks at his watch] Three minutes and four seconds.
Rusty: All right.
Joe: Let's see if the bear couple can beat that.
[Joe ties up Bearbette on the tracks]
Rusty: I say we should have up to six children.
Frisky: I think six would be the max.
[Meanwhile, Buttons jumps over tractor-trailers. As the train approaches...]
Bearbette: HELP! HELP! HELP!
[Buttons quickly unties Bearbette]
Joe: TIME! [looks at his watch] Three minutes...EVEN!!!
[Buttons and Bearbette celebrate by kissing at each other]
Frisky: At least we won $25,000, Rusty.
Joe: Congratulations, Buttons and Bearbette! You've climbed a tree with flags, filled worms from squid, grabbed the strobes, transferred scorpions into boxes, you've bobbed for cockroaches, and you saved your mate from the trains. You are the Fear Factor champions. And evidently, fear is not a factor for both of you.
[Buttons' apartment, Buttons and Bearbette make love]
Buttons: What should we do with the money?
Bearbette: Let's spend it towards our wedding.
Buttons: When will that take place?
Bearbette: In about four years from now. In Crystal Bayou.
Buttons: What about our honeymoon?
Bearbette: Umm...lets make this a secret.
Buttons: Okay. [kisses Bearbette's middle twice]
Bearbette: [giggles] Two kisses on my stomach? What does that mean?
Buttons: We will have at least two children.
Bearbette: Two. That'll work.
[Frisky's cave. Rusty and Frisky make love]
Frisky: I was wondering we can tie the knot in three years.
Rusty: Make that four.
[He rubs Frisky's stomach]
Frisky: What's a good place for a honeymoon?
Rusty: Hmm. We got a long way to go. [kisses Frisky's middle]
Frisky: [giggles] Does this look like Sarah's belly?
The Long and Winding Road
[While the boy cubs and Sarah garden with Vixey]
Vixey: What's that snake?
Rusty: It's not a snake, Vixey. This is a hose.
Buttons: A hose is where water comes out to water the plants.
[Rusty sprays water on the plants. He then hands Vixey the hose.]
Vixey: [pulls the trigger and sprays Sarah] Belly!
[Buttons turns the water off and Sarah confronts Vixey]
Sarah: Vixey, does this look like my bathing suit? Do you see my belly?
Sarah: I am not a plant! I am wearing my dress. And the dress is not a bathing suit!
Rusty: She's right. Now point the hose at the plants. Not Sarah. Not me. Nor Buttons.
[Just as Vixey points the hose at the plants...]
Quacker: QUACK! Urgent delivery for Buttons!
[He hands the telegram to Buttons]
Buttons: [reading] "URGENT MESSAGE FROM YOUR MOTHER AND AUNT FRANCINE: Buttons, please come to Sweet Water Valley as soon as possible. Your grandmother has taken off life support and is at her last hours of life. Please come immediately! - Mom and Aunt Francine" [not reading then gasps] Oh no. Gram!
Rusty: What's the matter, Buttons?
Buttons: [running back to his apartment] Gram is dying. I got to go!
Rusty: What-what? She's dying?
Rusty: Can I go with you?
Buttons: No. I must go alone. I'll tell you all about it later.
Rusty: Buttons' grandmother, Grandma Bear. She has Alzheimer's Disease.
Sarah: Alzheimer's Disease?
Rusty: A memory loss disease. I'll explain this more later.
[Suddenly, Rusty's critter phone rings]
Johnny: Hi, Rust. It's Johnny.
Rusty: Hi, Johnny.
Johnny: I am inviting you to commencement tomorrow night at 7:00 at the football stadium.
Rusty: You and Robin will soon be High School graduates!
Johnny: Yep! Only one more day!
Rusty: I'll be there. See you tomorrow, John. Bye-bye! [hangs up]
Sarah: That happens to be the day before my graduation.
Rusty: Wow! Two consecutive days of graduations. First, Johnny and Robin's then the next day Sarah's.
Sarah: Can I go to Johnny's commencement?
Rusty: No, Sarah. Johnny only invited me. And I presume Robin is gonna invite the girl cubs too. Besides, High School commencements are invitation-only events. You see when a student completes the three cycles of general education which are Elementary, Middle School, and High School, you are a graduate. And thus that human is not a child anymore. He or she is officially an adult. And this indicates you can now go out into the real world. And a special ceremony where you and many other students will be recognized is called commencement. Here, the student can invite their families over.
Rusty: Yeah and in about three months from now, Vixey will be starting school!
Sarah: Yeah, Vixey! I will be giving you some good advice on what school is in the summer!
Vixey: Yay! [lifts up Sarah's dress and presses her middle] Belly! Belly! Belly!
Sarah: [giggles] Oh, Vixey. I'm getting hysterical!
Vixey: [playing the drums on Sarah's stomach] Belly! Belly! Belly!
[She kisses Sarah's middle]
[At Sweet Water Valley, Buttons' arrives at the hospice]
[Bridgette and Francine run over to and hug him]
Francine: Oh my!
Bridgette: You got here just in time. Gram only has a few minutes of life left.
Bruce: Hi, cousin.
Buttons: Bruce! [hugs him] Oh my. I got to talk to her one last time. [walks to Gram on her deathbed] Gram?
[Gram's heart beats]
Buttons: Gram. Hi. [shows her engagement ring] Look at this. Me and Bearbette are getting married four years from now. We're going to be a couple. I remember we gave you TLC years ago. And I remember that wonderful story you taught me when I was a cub. [starts telling her story] There once was a little girl bear named Bearbette and her companion named Frisky. They had two friends named Buttons and Rusty. It was about that time a tricky traveling magician who always had an eye on Bearbette's locket. Believing it to have great and possibly magical value he decided to trick her into giving it up.
[As he continues to tell the story, his mother and aunt smile.]
Bridgette: I remember that story. Haven't heard it in years. [shows her the quilt Gram made] She made this.
[Moments later, as Buttons finishes the story]
Buttons: ...They remembered the lesson they learned that day, patience.
[Gram smiles then dies. Buttons feels Gram and embraces his mother, aunt, and Bruce as they mourn over Gram]
[At the same time, at the football stadium, Rusty's critter phone beeps. Rusty takes his phone and reads a text saying "She's gone."]
Rusty: [mouthing] Oh no.
Frisky: What happened, Rusty?
Rusty: Buttons' grandmother died.
Bearbette: [whispering] No.
Rusty: [reading text] "Gram requested the funeral only attended by me, mom, Bruce and Aunt Francine. Please send me your graduation wishes to Johnny and Robin."
Bearbette: I remember a long time ago when were cubs, we gave her TLC.
[Clips from The Gram Who Came To Dinner are shown]
[Just as Pomp and Circumstances starts playing, Rusty texts "Me and the girls send your condolences."]
[Robin steps up to the microphone]
Robin: Welcome, family, friends, faculty, and fellow graduates. Our time has come to reach the end of our thirteen-year journey towards the real world. I truly cannot believe the day we have been waiting for is finally here. The day we all worked so hard for, the day we finally have to say goodbye to.... High School and to general education. We are unique because from kindergarten to twelfth grade we have grown up with the same people in the same town. I remember the day I first met my fiancée, Johnny at Summer Camp after I moved from my original county as I am an exchange student. I remember on days when we were in Middle or High School, we use to hang around with him with our fellow classmates at school dances, the football games, and the prom. And we also spent time with four of our beloved critter friends Buttons, Bearbette, Rusty and Frisky. Through our four years, we made new friends, joined clubs, became apart of a team. Many of our teachers and staff members are now gone. We can remember this year that a snake almost ruined our homecoming festivities or the incident this past year with the attempted assassination of our physics teacher Mrs. Smiley, luckily she survived. Man, we will never forget those times. As a community, we are so proud of our graduating class. Tomorrow, our futures begin. Good or bad, it's ours. I'd like to thank my parents for being my number one supporters. I am forever thankful for everything you have done for me throughout this past thirteen years. We did it. Four years later and are graduating. I'd like to ask you to look at the two people sitting beside you and congratulate one another. Because every single one of you deserves this moment right now. Congratulations! I wish you the best of luck, I hope you never forget to have a wonderful day!
Mr. Pines: John David Jones-Boyett.
[Jonesy, Mr. Boyett, and the boy cubs stand up and cheer and applaud as he walks to the superintendent, shakes her hand gives him his diploma and takes his picture with Mr. Pines]
Mr. Pines: David Lane Gurd.
[Cheers and applause]
Mr. Pines: Lucas Steven Kerns.
[Cheers and applause]
Mr. Pines: Robin Marie McCobb.
[The girl cubs and Harold stand up and cheer]
Harold: That's my girl!
Mr. Pines: Now, by the power vested in me and by the authority of the department of education. I hereby declare the class graduates. You may turn your tassels to the right.
[The class turns their tassels to the right as most of the class toss their caps in the air; wild cheers and applause]
[The Next Day...]
[Little Critter School Graduation]
Miss Love: Good afternoon, critter moms and dads. Welcome to our graduation ceremony of the Little Critter School. The beginning of these ten young critters' time was a time of building trust with the children......and with you. It was a time of building relationships together and creating a team with one shared goal: Providing your youngins with what they needed to develop and grow as they begin to grow older. Right now, before we get into the main course. I would like to have all the youngins come for their final storytime as my student teacher, Mr. Mabor reads to them Oh, The Places You'll Go!
[The class gathers around the circle as Mr. Mabor tells them said story]
Miss Love: Thank you, Mr. Mabor. Throughout their time at the Little Critter School, my usual storyteller is LeMar Hutton who is the librarian here in Chucklewood. Unfortunately, LeMar is unable to come today so I let Mr. Mabor be our storyteller for today. You know, when the youngins began here. I provided them a song on getting to know your classmates well. I would like them to stand up and join me as we sing this special song one last time.
[The class stands up and Miss Love plays the special song on the piano]
Miss Love: Yep. This song made our class the best of friends. [shows Memory Wall] This is a memory wall that we made of the fun times we had. Every month, we go swimming at the gym with our two gym teachers, Jester and Jonah, to teach the critters how to swim. Boy, many of the class become very powerful swimmers. My favorite memory on Swim Day is that on the final recreational swim, Ed pulled me into the pool and splashed me! Many of the class splashed me sometimes. Not only we went swimming, the class learned how to be a real sport. Jester provided us lots of activities. We had fun holiday parties for Halloween, Christmas, Valentine's, and Easter. We went on field trips to the grocery store, farm, zoo, police station, hospital, theme park just to name a few and we sure had an interactive experience. This past January, we participated in a punt, pass and kick competition with Jester. Sarah won the contest and eventually went on to Nanami, where she took part in the National Championship and won by a half a foot. Congratulations to Sarah.
Miss Love: We had many surprise guests at the school. We met Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, Firefighter Drew, Chief Sue Hamilton, Plyto just to name a few. Just before their time at the school ended, the Danger Rangers visited there to talk to the class the safety skills they learned throughout their term. Cause remember "Safety rules!" I'm glad by the time my kids go out into the next chapter in their life, they can be official Danger Rangers.
Buttons and Rusty: [whispering] The Danger Rangers?
Miss Love: And now, it's time for the moment you've all been waiting for. The presentation of our diplomas for the school. When I call your name, you will come on up and Mr. Mabor will give you your diploma.
Miss Love: Well, my students. I can say this right now, I nearby declare your graduates. As you prepare to move on to the next chapter of your life, the world is always a rainbow. In fact, I have one more song for you to sing. So, for the very last time, I would like for you to stand up and join me as we sing The World Is A Rainbow.
[Two Months Later...]
[Johnny's house. Johnny loads up boxes into his car.]
Johnny: Well, that's that.
Mr. Boyett: Got your things ready?
Johnny: Yes, dad.
[He looks at a picture of himself with Buttons and Rusty when he was young.]
Johnny: [sighs] I got to have one last chance to say goodbye to Buttons and Rusty.
[Robin's house. Robin finishes packing up her car. Then she looks at her swimming pool.]
Robin: [crying] Goodbye, swimming pool. Thirteen summers of swimming in you were so much fun. [walking to the bedroom] Goodbye, bedroom.
Robin: Yes, pop.
Harold: Don't cry. You'll be back here again soon. Besides, the pool is not going anywhere. Except it needs some Tender Loving Care.
Robin: Thank you. Can we go to Chucklewood?
Harold: What for?
Robin: I want to say goodbye to Bearbette and Frisky. I am not going to be seeing them again for quite some time.
Harold: Go ahead.
[Chucklewood, Girl Cubs' Cave. Johnny and Robin prepare to say goodbye.]
Johnny: Freddie, I remember the day we read magazines on girls in bikinis.
Freddie: Yeah. But now I have a fiancée.
Skeeter: Me and Turner will never forget that tiger ruining our golf tournament.
Johnny: [to the men cubs] I'll remember the day we got all the Star Badges.
Buttons: Yep. I remember Zak called us "Chucklewood Mitters"
Rusty: And we defeated Vaderman World, Inc. The company is gone forever.
Robin: [to the women cubs] I remember visiting the mall, movie theater.
Bearbette: Yep. And we remember the day we got locked in the library.
Frisky: And our visits to Crystal Bayou.
[Robin lifts up Sarah's dress and rubs her stomach for the last time who giggles]
Robin: I am gonna miss rubbing your belly and kissing your spot, Sarah.
Sarah: [giggles] That's the Sarah Spot, Robin.
[Robin hugs Sarah]
Robin: Goodbye, Sarah. I'm gonna miss you so much.
[Robin kisses Sarah's middle]
Sarah: Goodbye, Robin!
[She hugs and lifts up Robin's shirt and kisses her middle]
Robin: [giggles] A kiss on my spot.
[As Johnny and Robin go into their cars]
Johnny: I'll bet we'll never find another forest like this.
Robin: A place filled with critters like you.
Buttons: We are gonna miss you, Johnny.
Bearbette: We are gonna miss you, Robin.
[The cars begin driving off...]
Johnny: Goodbye, Buttons and Rusty!
Robin: Goodbye, Bearbette and Frisky!
[As the cars drive far away from Chucklewood, Nobody Does It Better starts playing.]
Buttons: Nobody does it better
Makes us feel sad for the rest
Bearbette: Nobody does it like both of you
You two are the best.
[As the cars pass the "Leaving Chucklewood" sign, clips from previous episodes are shown]
Fox Couple: We weren't lookin' but somehow you found us.
It tried to hide from your friend light.
Bear Couple: But like heaven above us.
Our two best friends here.
Are keepin' all our secrets safe tonight.
Rusty: And nobody does it better
Though sometimes we wish someone could
Frisky: Nobody does it quite the way you do
Why'd you have to be so good?
Buttons: The way that you held us
Whenever you held us
Bearbette: There's some kind of magic inside you
Frisky: That keeps us from runnin'
But just keep it comin'
Rusty: How'd you learn to do the things you do?
All couples: Nobody does it better
Makes us feel sad for the rest
Nobody does it like both of you
You two are the best.
[The couples look down as they return inside the cave]
[One week later...]
[Sarah teaches Vixey all about to school...]
Sarah: Okay, Vixey. You're going to learn about the facts of life. In five more days, you will start school.
Vixey: School! School!
Sarah: Yes! School is a place where all young critters like you learn the alphabet, numbers, words and many things.
Sarah: Yes. Letters of the alphabet. Learning is a never ending process. Before the day is done, you'll make new friends.
[She shows a picture of Miss Love]
Sarah: This is Miss Love. She will be your teacher. She is a beaver, you know.
Sarah: Yes. She is very friendly.
Sarah: [chuckles] Yeah. She not only teaches, she sings and entertain you to a puppet show.
Vixey: Puppet show?
Sarah: Yeah. This is to make the class even more entertaining. [raises her hand] This is the signal used to get Miss Love attention.
[Vixey runs over to Sarah and starts to raise her dress up to press her middle but is stopped]
Sarah: No, Sarah! [raises her hand again] Now, try it.
Vixey: Raising your hand? [does so]
Sarah: Good job. The school features a Do and Learn center. As the old saying goes that "You learn by doing. It may seem like playing." You can have arts and crafts, puzzles, games, building blocks and more. [shows a picture of LeMar] There is also storytime visits with LeMar Hutton, who is the librarian in Chucklewood. He dosen't have to to take his word for it.
Sarah: [shows another picture] These are Jester and Jonah. They will be your gym teachers to get your body exercised.
Vixey: Jester and Jonah?
Sarah: [shows a picture of Jonah in swimming trunks] And do you see that little part on in the middle of Jonah's belly? That's a belly ring. It's a piece of jewelry you can pierce on your spot. You should not press it.
Vixey: Belly ring. Not press it.
Sarah: Yep. Now, there will be field trips to places that you have never been before.
Vixey: Field trips?
Sarah: It's a big part of the learning experience. There are field trips to the farm, zoo, museums, and more! Each month, the school has monthly days where Miss Love takes you to the gym's pool for swim days. For the first half of your time, it's swimming lessons. Afterwards, it's a free swim.
[Suddenly, Lisa (bikini) appears]
Lisa: Hey, Sarah, who's this?
Sarah: This is my cousin, Vixey.
Vixey: [looks at Lisa's stomach] Belly....belly....[runs over to Lisa and rubs her middle] Belly!
Lisa: [giggles] Your cousin!
[Vixey kisses Lisa's middle]
Lisa: [giggles] That tickles! She kissed my belly spot!
Sarah: She loves to play on bellies. She loves to kiss right here too. Anyway, I was showing her what school is like.
Lisa: Let's go to the lake.
Sarah: Good idea!
Sarah: [bikini] See what we're wearing? This is a bikini.
Lisa: You can see our bellies.
Vixey: [points to both Sarah and Lisa's stomachs] Bellies!
Sarah: [giggles] Right. And this little round circle on ours is our spots. In humans, this is called a bellybutton. [points to her middle] This is the Sarah spot. [points to Lisa's middle] This is the Lisa spot. Now, you are wearing a maillot which your belly is not shown.
Sarah: Now for Swim Day, the girls wear maillots.
Lisa: Miss Love does not want to see boys stare at girls' bellies.
Vixey: Girls' bellies?
Sarah: Good thing you have a maillot on.
Lisa: We wear bikinis outside of school. In-school, we wear maillots.
Vixey: [pushing Sarah and Lisa into the lake] Belly!
[She jumps into the lake and splashes Sarah and Lisa. She swims to her cousin and...]
Vixey: [kisses Sarah's middle] Belly!
Sarah: [giggles] That tickles me when I'm in the water.
Lisa: That's why you call that the Sarah spot.
Vixey: [kisses Lisa's middle and dunks her] Sarah spot!
Sarah: [laughs] You kissed Lisa's belly! Silly girl!
[Suddenly, Lisa dunks Sarah.]
Lisa: [giggles] Vixey! I'm getting ticklish with your belly kisses!
[Another week later...]
[Vixey runs over to her mother's bedroom. She lifts up her mother's pajamas and...]
Vixey: [pressing her mother's middle] Belly! Belly! First day of school! First day of school!
[Rosie giggles as Vixey kisses her mother's middle]
Rosie: Okay, okay, Vixey! First day of school!
[A montage is shown with Rosie bathing Vixey, picking a dress, eating breakfast and walking her to school. At the school, various other young critters enter the school with their folks. Cut to Sully and his son.]
Sully: Okay, Little Sull. You are ready to learn the facts of life.
Sully Jr.: Yes, pop. I'll be Danger Ranger ready!
Sully: Cause remember, safety rules!
Rosie: Here we are. The Little Critter School.
[Rosie, George and Vixey enter the school]
Miss Love: Hello, George and Rosie. This must be Vixey.
Vixey: [starts to run to Miss Love] Belly! Belly!
Rosie: [stops Vixey] Wait a minute, Vixey! That's Miss Love. She's your teacher.
Vixey: Miss Love?
George: Yes. She's very friendly.
[Vixey plays on Miss Love's dress.]
Miss Love: Vixey! Stop that!
[Rosie pulls Vixey away]
Rosie: Sorry about that, Miss Love. Vixey loves to play on bellies and she thinks she's looking for your belly.
Miss Love: That's okay. You got all your information needed.
George: Yes, ma'am.
[Vixey sits on a chair]
Vixey: Chair! Chair!
Rosie: I guess she's excited for school. Well, best be off.
[George and Rosie walk to Vixey]
George: Have a good time at school, Vixey!
Vixey: I will, daddy.
[She presses George's stomach and he chuckles. She walks to Rosie and kisses her middle.]
Rosie: [giggles] You will be a smart girl and make new friends.
Vixey: I will, mommy. [presses Rosie's middle] Belly!
George: [chuckles] Vixey loves to press Rosie's belly spot. Oh, Sarah said "hello."
Miss Love: Tell her to say "Hi" for me.
Rosie and George: We will.
[They both leave]
[Fox Family Cave]
George: First Rusty, then Sarah, and now Vixey.
Rosie: The children are growing up.
George: Well, Rusty full grown, soon to be married to Frisky. Sarah's starting to grow up. The family will soon be better than ever.
Rosie: Just think one day, we might be grandparents.
[They both hug]
Jonesy: [sighs] It's been two years since my nephew and his fiancée graduated from High School. I'm glad they are doing well in college. If you remember last time, it's not just Johnny and Robin having graduated from High School, here's what happened.
[Clips from Part 1 are shown]
Jonesy: Two years ago, while Vixey is being taught how to garden by my friends, Buttons and Rusty, Buttons received a telegram from his mother and aunt that Grandma Bear, which he calls her "Gram" was dying. He decided to go alone rather than inviting Rusty over. The very next day, as commencement had started, Buttons tells the dying Gram the story she told him when he was a young cub. She later died. And then, as Johnny and Robin graduated from High School. The next day, Sarah, Rusty's ticklish cousin, and her friends graduated from The Little Critter School. She is progressing the journey from girl to woman. Two months later, Johnny's father arrived and is invited to come home with him in between his studies in college. Robin decided to be with Johnny in between her studies as well. So, Johnny and Robin said their last goodbyes to Chucklewood as they went off to college. Johnny's journey to be a real forest ranger is bound to happen. As for Vixey, she's learning the facts of life at the Little Critter School. I just heard from Rosie, that Vixey is doing very well in school.
[Back to the present]
Jonesy: And you see why I'm packing up? I am about to tell you that as Buttons and Rusty approach the Ranger Station.
[Buttons and Rusty enter the Ranger Station]
Buttons: Hi, Jonesy!
Rusty: Hello, Jone—[looks around and sees the Ranger Station empty] Jonesy, are you packing up?
Buttons: You're going on vacation?
Buttons: How long?
Jonesy: A indefinite vacation.
Jonesy: I am retiring at the end of the week.
Buttons and Rusty: What!? No.
Jonesy: You see. I am getting old. When people have enough years of work experience, he/she decides to take a permanent vacation. This is called retirement. Here, let me tell you a story about my career in Chucklewood.
[Buttons and Rusty sit down on the couch with Jonesy]
Buttons: So, who is going to be taking over Chucklewood?
Jonesy: Roddy will be serving as my replacement on a interim basis. He will be commuting back and forth from his current forest and here.
Buttons: We haven't seen him like forever.
Jonesy: After we defeated Zak Vaderman and his fellow villains, Roddy was transferred to Hickory Forest leaving me as the sole ranger. Though, Roddy will be commuting between there and Chucklewood which is located west there.
Rusty: Are you going to be here for our wedding with Bearbette and Frisky in a few years?
Buttons: And Freddie too.
Jonesy: I will.
[Riding on Jonesy's Jeep (for the last time)]
Buttons: We remember riding on your, Jeep telling you all the stories of holidays.
Rusty: I remember rescuing us from the waterfall when we found the Treasure of Chucklewood.
Jonesy: Yeah, this one I've purchased it brand new in my first year patrolling Chucklewood.
[The very next day, Jonesy all packed up getting ready to say goodbye to all critters.]
George: [crying] We're going to miss you so much, Jonesy!
Rosie: Chucklewood will never be the same without you.
[One Year Later]
Frisky: Oh, Rusty dear!
Rusty: Yes, Frisky?
Frisky: We gotta plan our wedding. It's been three years since we've been engaged.
Rusty: Oh! Today's the day were planning our wedding.
Frisky: We gotta call the bears and raccoons!
[Buttons' Apartment. Buttons and Bearbette make love. Buttons' critter phone rings.]
Frisky: Buttons! Bearbette! Please come to my cave. We have a meeting to plan our wedding!
[Planning The Wedding]
Frisky: So, we can let Sarah be a bridesmaid, Vixey as the flower girl.
Rusty: Sarah is too old to be flower girl. She's a teen critter now. Vixey is the best choice for flower girl.
Buttons: Good idea! But Vixey can't press critters bellies at weddings.
Bearbette: I was wondering if Bruce can be the best man.
Buttons: Football season has just started. I think he can be the best man. I'll call him tonight.
Freddie: How about Morty? I'll give him a call later tonight.
[Skeeter, Karen and their son, Benny walk past]
Skeeter: What's up, couples?
Rusty: Hi, mouse family.
Skeeter: Planning your wedding ceremony?
Bearbette: Yes, Skeeter. We are will be holding our wedding next year in Crystal Bayou.
Sophia: Me, Freddie, Buttons and Bearbette, Rusty and Frisky will become Mister and Missus.
Benny: Pop, what's Crystal Bayou?
Skeeter: A place way down south of Chucklewood. It's always warm down there. An alligator named Lester lives there.
Buttons: Good thing you three dropped by. We are looking for someone to be a ring bearer.
Rusty: It's a boy who carry the rings down the aisle to the couple. Usually, the rings are tied to a pillow and then the ring bearer carries this pillow down the aisle.
Benny: You mean I have to carry rings on a pillow?
Frisky: [shows Benny a pillow] Yes. [gives the pillow to Benny] Now hold that sideways like a tray.
[Benny holds the pillow and walks slowly]
Karen: Easy, isn't it?
Benny: Yes, Mom! Can I be the ring bearer?
Skeeter: Of course, Benny!
Bearbette: We got our ring bearer!
Rusty: Be sure to watch your telegram from Quacker for the invitation on the date the wedding will be held.
Buttons: Crystal Bayou!
Skeeter: We will.
Karen: See you, couples!
[The mouse family leaves]
Frisky: So now we know who will be the ring bearer and flower girl will be. All we have to worry about is approval from Bruce and Morty on the best men.
Rusty: Freddie, please make sure you get a response from Morty soon.
[Johnny and Roddy approach the cave]
Johnny: Hi, guys!
Buttons and Rusty: [gasps] Johnny!
[They run over to him]
Buttons: You're a forest ranger now.
Johnny: Well, sort of though. I am completing internship with Roddy.
Roddy: Yes, pretty soon, Johnny will be my assistant forest ranger here. Once he's done with his internship, he will graduate from college and become a senior park ranger.
Johnny: I am following my uncle's steps.
Buttons: You are going to be like him.
Rusty: We are planning our wedding next year in Crystal Bayou.
Johnny: I saw that. Me and Robin are getting married next year too!
Johnny: Watch your mail on when the wedding will be held.
[Six Months Later]

[Weeks later, at the Fox Family cave]

[Jeanette hands Rusty, Buttons and Freddie a menu]
Jeanette: A very good friend of mine runs a excellent catering service. And they would be able to help you guys.
[The men look at the menu]
Jeanette: And I can make three small wedding cakes. One for the fox couple, one for the bear, and one for the raccoon.
Freddie: Gee! Thanks, Mrs. Fox.
Jeanette: I'll even have a desert tray to satisfy the sweet tooth.
Rusty: Vixey, as flower girl, do you want your big brother and your future sister-in-law to give you something?
Vixey: Yes, Rusty!
Frisky: We might also give my future cousin-in-law something.
George: She's gonna be excited!
[Vixey jumps to Sophia's stomach and rubs it]
Sophia: [giggles] Hey, little girl!
Vixey: [looks at her middle] Belly?
[Vixey kisses Sophia's middle]
Sophia: [giggles] That tickles! Rusty, your sister kissed my belly spot!
Freddie: That girl is a rascal.

[Cody lifts up Sarah's shirt and kisses her middle]
Sarah: [giggles] Kissing the Sarah spot never gets old.
Cody: Yeah, pretty soon. You may get it pierced.
Sarah: It don't feel like getting it pierced. I just want it the way it is.
