Paul: Hey – I think I’ve got a nibble.
Just underneath the boat are fishes swimming and Ralph the fish has just taken the bait and can’t get off.
Jeremy: What are you doing Ralph?
Ralph: This wasn’t a little fish at all. I’ve been tricked!
Jeremy: You’re not hooked are you?
Ralph: Well it looks that way doesn’t it Jeremy?
Jeremy: Don’t get grumpy with me Ralph. Hey, Dave – come and give us a fin!
Dave: I’m not getting involved Jeremy. Ralph got himself into this mess. He can get himself out!
Ralph: Fine fish you are Dave. You sure get to know who your true mates are!
Jeremy: Right, enough now! Come on Ralph, stop playing around.
Ralph: I’m not playing around Jeremy. I can’t get off this blimmin line.
Ralph gets tugged and he quickly shoots back and forth on the line and goes behind the boat.
Jeremy: (very distressed) Ralph, no! Come back Ralph. I’m sorry! Come back. Oh no! What will I do now? (to Dave) Thanks for your help Dave! Me and Jeremy have been friends since eggsac!
Dave: Oh, get a grip Jeremy. There are plenty more fish in the sea.
Jeremy: Oh yes! Very funny. You’ve been waiting to crack that line out for ages haven’t you!
Dave: Those clown fish have nothing on me.
Dave just smiles and swims off. Jeremy follows slowly.
Jeremy: (very sad) Poor Ralph. See ya mate!
(Back up on the boat).Paul: (Pulls up a fish from other side of boat) Woo hoo! I got one.
Grommit: Nice one bro. Legend! Chuck it in the bucket. It looks like the fish are biting today. Pete, get off the floor and drop anchor! Let’s see what’s down there!
