Transcript

  • (The special begins with the Rubbadubbers looking at Benjie and Sis' scrapbook, which contain memories of their family and the Rubbadubbers themselves through photos (screenshots created specifically for this episode and screenshots taken from the original stop-motion series).)
  • Terence: Ooh! What a lovely scrapbook they got. Where did they get all those photos?
  • Reg: Benjie and Sis have been taking photos of their family and us Rubbadubbers over the past- (stutters) for a long time now. Quite amazing, isn't it?
  • Terence: Sure is! (points to the picture where Benjie and Sis are using him for the first time) Look! There's Benjie and Sis using me for the first time!
  • (The Rubbadubbers are quite astonished by this memory.)
  • Finbar: Very impressive for a crocodile who doesn't like water! Arr arr arr.
  • (Terence clears his throat before glaring at Finbar, who looks at him confused.)
  • Finbar: Oh. Sorry.
  • (The Rubbaudubbers then look at the picture where Terence is showing off his toothbrush talents to the other Rubbadubbers (this is from the episode "Terence's Double Trouble").)
  • Amelia: Look! This must be the time where you realized you also had a talent of your own, Terence!
  • Terence: Most certainly, Amelia!
  • (Tubb takes out a picture showing the gang in front of the bathroom and shows it to the other Rubbadubbers.)
  • Tubb: Look, everyone! This is an picture of me and all of my other fellows we took when we all got together for the first time!
  • Sploshy: Ooh!
  • Winona: (squeaks)
  • Reg: Certainly. Benjie and Sis have gone off to their grandparents' home for their birthday, and they are coming back today with new photos to add to their scrapbook.
  • Terence: Hoo hoo! That sounds like fun!
  • Reg: It really is.
  • Terence: (ponders for a bit) But... do you think maybe I could revisit those memories?
  • Sploshy: (giggles) Silly Terence! You know you can't travel back in time! Even if you did, how would you be able to do it without being spotted by humans? (continues to giggle)
  • Tubb: (glares at Sploshy) Sploshy! We're looking at the scrapbook.
  • Sploshy: (stops giggling) Oh, sorry.
  • Tubb: But I think you may be right. Sure, revisiting those memories would be swimmin'! But it's probably just best to look back on our memories and reflect on them.
  • Winona: (squeaks)
  • Amelia: Winona's right! We can cherish the fond memories we have together!
  • Finbar: And we can look at Benjie and Sis without having to actually look at them! (laughs)
  • Terence: Hmm, I think you may all be right. But I really want to explore the memories and know how the Rubbadubbers got started!
  • Finbar: Well... (rolls his eyes) If you really don't want to look in the scrapbook, then I guess that's mighty all-righty. (resumes looking at the memories in the scrapbook)
  • (The other Rubbadubbers just shrug (or rolled their eyes) and resumed looking at the scrapbook.)
  • (Terence sighs disappointedly, knowing full-aware that he needs to find out how the Rubbadubbers really got together.)
  • Terence: If only I could actually revisit our memories and find out how we really got together!
  • (Thought bubble transition to the Time Taxi parking lot. A taxi is on the road, waiting for Terence to hop in.)
  • Terence: Ooh! I said "if only"! But what is this taxi doing here?
  • (Terence hears a voice in the taxi.)
  • Finbar: Hurry up, Terence! You don't want to be late for our, arr, arr, arr, memory travel adventure!
  • Terence: Memory travel adventure? (gasps) That's it! I said "if only", and now I get to actually revisit our past memories! (goes over to the taxi, where a driver is waiting for him)
  • Reg: (looks at Terence and waves his robot arm at him) Greetings, Terence.
  • Terence: Umm... Who might you be?
  • Finbar: Allow us to introduce ourselves. The name's Taxi Assistant Finbar, the mighty shark who is in charge of assisting the taxi driver!
  • Reg: And I'm Memory Traveler Reg, a taxi driver who likes to time travel to pa-to pa- (shakes his head) to explore past memories.
  • Terence: Well, that sounds amazing!
  • Finbar: The Mighty Shark can't argue with that!
  • Reg: So, where to?
  • Terence: Well, I always wondered how the Rubbadubbers got started.
  • Finbar and Reg: Ooh!
  • Terence: Sounds very interesting! Oh, and why are we called the Rubbadubbers?
  • Finbar: Hmmm, the Mighty Taxi Assistant is very intrigued by those questions!
  • Reg: Finbar's right. So you want to discover how the Rubbadubbers got started and why they are called by that name, huh?
  • Terence: Oh, yeah!
  • Finbar: And you want to know how Benjie and Sis' first days in Bathsville City were like, too. (Terence nods) Whoo-hoo! That's fin-tastic to hear!
  • Reg: Very well. I'll show you how we became the Rubbadubbers.
  • (Reg starts up the engine to his Time Taxi.)
  • Reg (cont'd): You see, it all started when Benjie and Sis first arrived at Bathsville City a long time ago.
  • (Reg's Time Taxi begins to move and flies off before disappearing into the air.)
  • (Cuts to Benjie and Sis' home a long time ago. Engine noises can be heard in the background, which are revealed to be Reg's Time Taxi, which soon lands near the house at normal toy-size (since they are already at normal size back in the real world to begin with), as Reg stops the engine.)
  • Reg: Well, here we are.
  • Terence: (looks at their then-new home) Umm, this house looks kind of familiar, Reg. Are you sure we have arrived at the right time?
  • Reg: Well, yes. But this is actually Benjie and Sis' first day in Bathsville City. They had a hard time adjusting to their new lives when they first moved here.
  • Finbar: And why would you... arr... arr arr... believe so, Reg?
  • Reg: You'll see, Finbar. Even the children have a hard time adjusting to things like we sometimes do.
  • (Both he and Terence get out of the car, leaving Finbar behind for now, as they walk to the entrance of the house.)
  • Terence: Umm, Reg? Don't you think the children will notice us being alive and freak out? (he shivers at the thought of it)
  • Reg: Don't worry abou-abou-Not to worry, Terence. I made the Time Taxi and whoever's in the Taxi be unseen by humans while we're in the past. That way, it doesn't disrupt the time-space continuum.
  • Terence: Oh, umm... Yeah. Good point.
  • (Cuts to inside Benjie and Sis's then-new house, which contain unpacked boxes throughout the house, signifying the family has just recently moved in.)
  • Benjie and Sis' dad: (off-screen) Come on, kids! You know we need to get all our boxes unpacked as soon as possible!
  • (Benjie and Sis come out of their rooms and walk down the stairs to the living room.)
  • Benjie: Coming, Dad!
  • Benjie and Sis' mom: So, what do you think of our new house?
  • Sis: (sniffles) Great... I guess.
  • Benjie and Sis' dad: What's wrong?
  • Sis: Oh, nothing. It's just... I really want to spend time with my old friends!
  • Benjie: Yeah, me too!
  • Benjie and Sis' mom: Now, children. You know we have moved there for a reason. Understand?
  • (Both Benjie and Sis nod their heads.)
  • (As their family is having a conversation, Terence and Reg walk into the house/home's living room (as spirits, since they're currently in the past right now) and see Benjie and Sis' family.)
  • Terence: Hmm... What's going on over there?
  • Reg: That's Benjie and Sis' family. It looks like they having a conversation.
  • Sis: But I want to play and go ride on bicycles with my friends!
  • (The doorbell rings.)
  • Benjie and Sis' dad: I'll get it.
  • (He checks the door for anything he could give to his children. He finds a letter and gives it to them.)
  • Benjie and Sis' dad: I think this letter is for you, Benjie and Sis.
  • Benjie: (opens the letter, then gets excited) Our new school?! That's great!
  • Benjie and Sis' dad: Yep. Although, I do wish your old friends will move in as well, I think you'll have a good time making new friends.
  • Sis: But... But... I want to go on adventures with Mary and Ellie, not spend our times in Bathsville City! (cries as she goes off to their bedroom)
  • Terence: Sis, don't! (runs to try and prevent Sis from doing so)
  • Reg: Wait, you could get yourself...
  • (Sis somehow passes through Terence, because he currently is a spirit, making him fall down the stairs and hurt himself in the process, groaning in pain soon after.)
  • Reg: Revealed...
  • Benjie: Sis, hold on!
  • (Benjie goes off after Sis and passes through Terence, as he is still recovering himself from his fall.)
  • Reg: Terence, are you alright?
  • Terence: I think so... Ow! (stretches his body parts, then shakes himself) Benjie and Sis must've passed through me without noticing.
  • Reg: I think it has something to do with the spirit thing I've talked about shortly before we entered the house/home.
  • (As he says this, he moves his robot arm through a door, further revealing that they really are in the past as spirits.)
  • Terence: Oh. Well, thank goodness for that. (chuckles)
  • (Cuts to Sis still crying in their bedroom. The door opens as Benjie walks in.)
  • Benjie: You ok, Sis?
  • Sis: (tearfully) Yes, just leave me alone.
  • Benjie: Look, I know I wanna have fun with my old friends just as much as you do, but we just got to accept the fact that we are staying in Bathsville City, because my Dad said so.
  • Sis: I know, Sis. I want to go back!
  • Benjie: But what about school?
  • Sis: I don't wanna go to my new school. As soon as I can, I'm gonna quit my new school! And then I'm gonna move back!
  • Benjie: Sis, look. I know it's hard for you to adjust to your new home and school, but you'll get used to it eventually, OK?
  • (Sis can't help but nod to him.)
  • Benjie: Alright, Sis. Hopefully your first day at your new school goes well.
  • Sis: Umm... yeah. I think so. I hope.
  • (Fades to a montage of Benjie and Sis' first day of school, which didn't really go as planned as they would, with many mistakes and accidents made.)
  • (Benjie and Sis' parents enter the classroom.)
  • Benjie and Sis' dad: Is everything all... right?
  • (The parents notice that their children have had a rough first day of school. Benjie and Sis then proceeded to chuckle for a bit.)
  • (Fades to back inside the house, as Benjie and Sis' dad opens the door for her wife and her son.)
  • Benjie and Sis' dad: Now look, I know you had a rough first day today, but I know you will do better tomorrow, right?
  • Benjie and Sis: Right!
  • (Terence and Reg are watching them, looking all curious.)
  • Terence: Huh, no wonder they have difficulties adjusting to their new lives just like we sometimes have difficulties about our own things, like when you wanted to go underwater, but later found out that dry land was best for you, or when I wanted to make up the rules, but I found out that it's fun when the game you're playing is freestyle!
  • Reg: That is correct, Terence.
  • Terence: Certainly! Say, who was the first Rubbadubber?
  • Reg: Well, this one's easy! Tubb!
  • Terence: (shocked) Tubb?
  • Reg: That's right. (They begin to walk back to his Time Taxi) While Benjie and Sis were busy adjusting to their new lives, their parents decided it was time for them to get a bathroom toy of their own.
  • (Fades to another montage of Benjie and Sis, this time adjusting pretty well to their new lives, as they are liking their new house/home more, and they are doing better in school, as well.)
  • (Once the montage is over, it cuts back to inside the house, where Benjie and Sis are having a conversation with their parents.)
  • Benjie and Sis' dad: So, while you were busy adjusting to your new lives, we have decided it was time you two would receive your very first bath toy.
  • (He reaches into his shopping bag as he says it and pulls out a box which contains a bathroom toy who is a pink male rubber frog with green eyes, pink skin, patterned shorts, and a yellow t-shirt with short traffic light coloured sleeves.)
  • Benjie and Sis' dad: This is Tubb. I'm sure he will enjoy playing with you in the bath just as much as you two would.
  • Sis: Yeah! That would be swimmin'!
  • Benjie and his parents: Swimmin'! (They all laugh along with Sis)
  • (Fades to inside the bathroom, where Reg and Terence are at, signifying that they have time travelled once again. This time, the timeframe was two weeks after their first day of school.)
  • Terence: Hmm... This bathroom looks quite empty.
  • Reg: Well, yes. But actually no. And I think I can explain why.
  • Terence: Really?
  • Reg: Of co-of co-of co-Yes, Terence.
  • (The door opens, and Benjie and Sis walk in with their then-new Tubb bathroom toy in their hands.)
  • Reg: Oh, here he comes! The leader of our bathroom gang!
  • Terence: Shouldn't it be the Rub-
  • (Reg shushes Terence, who then shrugs.)
  • (Benjie and Sis play with Tubb for some time, partaking in imaginative situations before Benjie and Sis head off for another day of school.)
  • (As soon as Benjie, Sis, and their parents leave the house, Tubb comes to life for the first time and examines the strange, new place.)
  • Tubb: (looks in awe) Whoa... What is this place? Could it be that... (gasps) Benjie and Sis do want to play with me! Swimmin'!
  • (Tubb begins to explore Benjie and Sis' bathroom, seeing the new wonders that were in store for the then-new bath toy.)
  • (Tubb then sees the green lily pad he came with, which gives him an idea.)
  • Tubb: Maybe...
  • (He takes the green lily pad and throws it into the bath, then dives right in.)
  • (He dives back up and gets onto his lily pad, which floats with ease.)
  • Tubb: Say, now there's something I can float on! Now, what next?
  • (He starts to relax on his lily pad when he notices something that almost threw him off his lily pad.)
  • Tubb: Oh no! I almost forgot! I need something to clean stuff with! But what can I use?
  • (Tubb notices one of the cotton buds is on the sink, so he decides to check it out.)
  • (Tubb gets onto the sink and walks over to the cotton bud.)
  • Tubb: Maybe I can use it for something... (ponders for a bit) Yeah, it's probably trash.
  • (He throws the cotton bud away, but it lands away from him on the bath, scrubbing it as it slides.)
  • Tubb: (notices the cotton bud had landed on the bath) Huh? Hey!
  • (Tubb walks over to the cotton bud and scrubs the bath with it.)
  • Tubb: Swimmin'! I can use this cotton bud to clean stuff! Woohoo!
  • (Terence and Reg are watching from afar as Tubb begins to clean stuff with his new cotton bud.)
  • Terence: So it used to be just Tubb in the bathroom a long time ago?
  • Reg: Exactly. He had a nice life.
  • Terence: But, umm... he was kind of... lonely, right?
  • Reg: Yes, Terence. But, only after a little while.
  • (They begin to walk away from the bathroom and back to Reg's Time Taxi.)
  • Reg (cont'd): At first, he was fine by himself, but he eventually realized that he was... (ponders) well... Let's just say that he wished he wouldn't be alone.
  • (Fades to Benjie and Sis in the bathroom, who are playing with Tubb and still having fun with him when their parents came in.)
  • Benjie and Sis' dad: Okay, kids. You ready to go on a trip?
  • Benjie: Yeah!
  • Sis: Hopefully, we can get a new bath toy to play with or at least a new bath sponge or bath bottle during the trip!
  • Benjie and Sis' mom: I think you will, dearies. If we ever come across a gift shop during our trip, you can choose whatever you want to get. That alright with you two?
  • Benjie and Sis: Yes, mum/mom!
  • Benjie and Sis' dad: Then let's get ready to head out!
  • (As Benjie and Sis' family leave the house, Tubb comes to life with a sad look on his face, as he's feeling kind of lonely after a little while.)
  • (Tubb goes over to the window and sees Benjie and Sis' family heading off on their trip. He then sadly sighs.)
  • Tubb: It's the same ol' thing every day. Benjie and Sis leave the house/home, and then I come to life alone, floating on the same lily pad and cleaning up the same things with my cotton bud!
  • (Tubb goes to the bath, examines his lily pad, then scrubs something with his cotton bud.)
  • Tubb (cont'd): No one to play with when the children are gone, and no one to share the experiences I have with them!
  • (Tubb goes over to and examines the bathroom mirror.)
  • Tubb (cont'd): Sure, my life with Benjie and Sis is swimmin'! And I'll gladly stay with them.
  • (Tubb goes into the bath and gets onto his lily pad in a sitting position.)
  • Tubb (cont'd): But... I just can't help but wish I didn't have to be alone all the time!
  • (Tubb looks at a reflection of himself in the water, then moans sadly.)
  • Tubb: (sad voice) If only I had a friend I could actually play with...
  • (Fades to Terence and Reg walking to the bathroom counter, with Finbar rolling up to them from behind (they are still spirits, as they are still in the past), and watching Tubb as he continues to scrub and scrub.)
  • Finbar: So, why did you two decide to bring the Mighty Taxi Assistant along for the ride, again?
  • Reg: Well, Terence really wants you to re- (stutters) to see Terence's first memory with Benjie and Sis again.
  • Finbar: Oh, I see what you mean.
  • (Tubb notices that Benjie and Sis have returned from their trip and are about to enter the house, knowing that he will soon no longer be alone.)
  • Tubb: (gasps) Benjie and Sis are coming! Hope they brought a friend from the gift shop for me! Swimmin'!
  • (He jumps into the bath and starts pretending to be lifeless.)
  • Terence: Ooh-hoo! Here I come!
  • (Benjie and Sis, along with their parents, enter the bathroom with their then-new soap bottle, which resembles a crocodile with only one tooth, a yellow body, a white collar that also functions as a way to put more soap in him (with his head acting as a cap to the soap bottle), a red neck-tie and several spots on his back.)
  • Benjie and Sis' mom: So, dearies. What do you think of your new soap bottle?
  • Benjie: Oh, it's great! Can't wait to use it!
  • Sis: Me too! It even resembles a crocodile!
  • Benjie and Sis' dad: Sure glad to hear it. Let's show off our memories from the trip to some of our new friends first. Maybe they would like us to stay for a bit, too. When we come back, you two can take your bath with your new soap bottle.
  • Benjie and Sis: Yes, dad!
  • (Benjie and Sis' dad puts the soap bottle down on the bathroom floor.)
  • Benjie: I'm sure gonna love my new soap bottle when I use it!
  • (As soon as Benjie and Sis left the house, Tubb comes to life again and looks around the room for a bit.)
  • Tubb: Swimmin'! Benjie and Sis have gone!
  • (Tubb then noticed that the soap bottle is on the bathroom floor. He looks at it with curiosity.)
  • Tubb: Hmmm. That's new. Maybe he's friendly. (jumps down to the floor and walks over to it) Hello? (silence) I'm feeling a bit lonely and I was wondering if you could be my friend!
  • (There was still silence. Tubb looks at it's tie with curiosity.)
  • Tubb: Hmm...
  • (He begins to reach for it.)
  • (All of a sudden, the soap bottle comes to life for the first time and holds on to his tie.)
  • ???: Oooohhhh! Careful! That's my special tie!
  • (Tubb becomes startled by it and falls down to the ground.)
  • Tubb: (moans) You startled me!
  • ???: Umm... (chuckles) Sorry 'bout that. It's just this red tie is so special to me, I would never want anyone to take it off, not even me!
  • Tubb: Mmmmm… Yes. I see your point. Sorry if I tried to take your tie off.
  • ???: Oh, it's alright. No harm done. Okay, maybe a bit, but still. So, umm... What's your name?
  • Tubb: I'm Tubb the Frog. What's yours?
  • ???: My name's... Umm... Terence.
  • Tubb: Terence? That's a very nice name.
  • Terence (flashback): Why, thank you, Tubb. It sure is great to have someone compliment me! What can you do?
  • Tubb: I clean stuff with my cotton bud. Want to see it?
  • Terence (flashback): Oh, yeah!
  • Tubb: Well, then. Follow my lead.
  • (They walk over to his cotton bud, which he has cleaned.)
  • Terence (flashback): What a nice-looking bud you got there! Did you clean it?
  • Tubb: Yes, Terence. I always clean the cotton bud after I have cleaned everything that is there to be... well, cleaned!
  • Terence (flashback): Hmm, yes. Say, want to see me do a tie trick?
  • Tubb: Erm, no thanks. I have better things to do. (begins to walk away from Terence)
  • Terence (flashback): Oh, it won't take long. Watch!
  • (Terence rolls up his neck-tie, then lets go of his tie and it unrolls itself. Tubb then turns around.)
  • Tubb: Hey, can you do that again?
  • (Terence rolls up his neck-tie again, then lets go of his tie and it unrolls itself once more.)
  • Tubb: Wow... That's amazing!
  • Terence (flashback): It is?
  • Tubb: That was swimmin', Terence! I wish I had a tie like yours.
  • Terence (flashback): Oh, it's alright. You're fine just the way you are.
  • Tubb: Really?
  • Terence (flashback): Yes. What about your lily pad?
  • (Tubb and Terence look at the lily pad.)
  • Tubb: Oh, I just like to relax on it often.
  • Terence (flashback): Hmm, yea. That's nice.
  • (Terence sees the toothbrush holder and begins to wander over to it.)
  • Tubb: Terence, what are you doing?
  • Terence (flashback): Wonder what these toothbrushes are for?
  • Tubb: They used to brush your teeth.
  • (Terence takes a red toothbrush from the toothbrush holder and examines it.)
  • Terence (flashback): Sort of like this?
  • (Terence brushes his one and only tooth with his red toothbrush and continues brushing it.)
  • Tubb: Well, yes. Like that.
  • (Terence stops brushing his tooth momentarily.)
  • Terence (flashback): You know, Tubb, I think my tooth needs brushing, too!
  • Tubb: You do?
  • Terence (flashback): Of course! That way, I can keep my tooth clean! (resumes brushing his tooth)
  • (Tubb gets onto the tub's surface before looking back at Terence, who is still brushing his tooth.)
  • Tubb: Well, I guess that's everything you wanted to see? (Terence nods) Alrighty! (prepares to jump into the bath) Swimmin'!
  • (Tubb jumps into the bath with a splash that almost gets Terence wet, but he dodges it just in time.)
  • Terence (flashback): Ooh! Careful with that! You'll get my tie wet!
  • Tubb: But aren't you a toy crocodile?
  • Terence (flashback): Well, yes. But I'm also a soap bottle. And I'd much rather stay up here than actually go in the bath. Besides, I hate getting wet!
  • Tubb: Oh, come on, Terence! It won't hurt a bit.
  • Terence (flashback): Yeah, but I'll get all upset if I even touch the slightest bit of water!
  • Tubb: Well... I can't blow bubbles.
  • Terence (flashback): You mean like this?
  • (Terence proceeds to blow a bubble out of his nostrils and proceeds to balance it with his toothbrush, astonishing Tubb.)
  • Tubb: Whoa... I didn't you know could blow bubbles!
  • Terence (flashback): Well, I was made to do that.
  • Tubb: Good point, Terence. Hey, would you mind passing me a bubble?
  • Terence (flashback): Don't mind if I do!
  • (Terence passes the bubble to Tubb, who catches it.)
  • Tubb: Here, catch!
  • (Tubb throws the bubble to Terence, who catches it with his toothbrush, then proceeds to throw it back to him.)
  • Terence (flashback): Watch this!
  • (Terence blows another bubble and balances it on his nose while catching the bubble that Tubb threw to him, and then throwing the bubble that was on his toothbrush back to him.)
  • (Terence then proceeds to throw the bubble he currently has to Tubb, just as he throws the bubble in his possession back to Terence.)
  • (They continue to have fun playing with each other for a while until eventually, Terence notices Benjie and Sis, as well as their parents, are coming back, and warned Tubb about their arrival.)
  • Terence (flashback): Tubb! Benjie and Sis are coming!
  • Tubb: Huh? Oh, thanks for reminding me, Terence! Guess it must be time for you to show off your soapy bubbles!
  • Terence (flashback): My soapy bubbles? Well, yeah, alright.
  • (Terence gets onto the counter and starts pretending to be lifeless.)
  • Tubb: It's bathtime! Swimmin'!
  • (Tubb dives into the bath and starts pretending to be lifeless, too.)
  • Finbar: Here it comes, Terence. Arr, arr, arr.
  • Terence: My first time Benjie and Sis are actually using me!
  • Reg: Exactly.
  • (Fades to Benjie and Sis after they have taken their bath with their new soap bottle, Terence.)
  • Benjie and Sis' dad: So, how was your first bath with your new soap bottle, Terence?
  • Benjie: Oh, that was fun!
  • Sis: It was so much fun playing around with bubbles in our bath!
  • Terence: So much fun, indeed! Ooohoohoo!
  • (Benjie and Sis' parents put the photo that they took of Benjie and Sis using Terence for the first time into their scrapbook.)
  • (Fades to the bathroom the next morning, where Terence, after coming to life, is looking around for a bit, and sees that Benjie and Sis have gone to stay over at one of their friends' houses for the day. He turns to Tubb to give him the "all-clear".)
  • Terence (flashback): Hey, Tubb!
  • (Tubb comes to life and looks at Terence.)
  • Terence (cont'd; flashback): The children have gone!
  • Tubb: Swimmin'! (walks over to Terence) So, how did your first bath playdate go?
  • Terence (flashback): I think it went alright, actually!
  • Tubb: Well, that's great!
  • Terence (flashback): Umm... Thanks, I guess.
  • Tubb: Oh, Terence... You know how much I like you.
  • (He hugs Terence, taking him by surprise.)
  • Terence (flashback): R-Really?
  • Tubb: Yes, Terence. I'm just so glad to have you as a friend.
  • (Terence hugs back in response.)
  • (Terence, Finbar, and Reg are watching Terence's past self and Tubb from the hallway. Finbar begins to sniffle.)
  • Finbar: I think I'm gonna cry.
  • Terence: Oh, it's alright, Finbar. So, what now, Reg?
  • Reg: We go to whoever's up next.
  • (Fades to the Time Taxi, where Reg starts up the engine to it.)
  • Reg: If my memory banks are correct, then it would be quite a while before I showed up.
  • Finbar: Well, it will be quite a while before the Mighty Shark showed up, too! Arr, arr, arr!
  • (Reg realizes that Finbar is about to mistakenly modify the time-switcher with his back fin.)
  • Reg: Watch the time-switcher!
  • (Reg tries to prevent Finbar from messing with the time-switcher, but it was too late. He watched in horror as it switches to a time when Bathsville City was founded.)
  • Reg: (shocked) Oh, no!
  • Finbar: What? It was a mistake!
  • (The Time Taxi also started to move on it's own for some reason before flying off and disappearing into the air.)
  • (Cuts to Bathsville City, when it was first founded. It's in sepia tone to signify the olden days.)
  • (Suddenly, Reg's Time Taxi appears out of nowhere and comes to a complete stop in front of one of the buildings.)
  • (Terence, Finbar, and Reg recover themselves from the wild trip, only to become shocked by what they saw.)
  • Terence: Oh, no! I didn't ask to see Bathsville City when it was first founded!
  • Finbar: Sorry, Terence. I didn't know my back fin could cause problems during our trip, as well as confusion and delay.
  • Reg: Oh, great! (facepalms himself) Good thing we are still spirits or else the time-space continuum will combust!
  • Terence: Agreed. (has a determined look on his face) So, you said it would be a while before the both of you showed up, right?
  • Reg: Correct, Terence. (starts up the engine again) In the meantime, Benjie and Sis were about to get a third bathroom toy to add to their growing collection.
  • Finbar: Which also happens to be a bath sponge! Arr, arr, arr!
  • (The Time Taxi drives off.)
  • (Fades to the bathroom. It is about a month since Benjie and Sis first got Terence.)
  • (The door opens, and Benjie and Sis arrive with their new sponge that has an appearance of a starfish.)
  • (They use it to clean up any puddles that might've got spilled while they were at school.)
  • Benjie: You know, I think this sponge could actually be quite useful for cleaning up messes.
  • Sis: And we can play with it, too!
  • (Benjie and Sis' dad smile at their children, knowing that they are happy with what they got.)
  • (The next morning, Benjie and Sis have gone off for school and there was silence in the bathroom. Until suddenly...)
  • ???: (whisper) Psst! Guys!
  • (Terence and Tubb both hear the strange noise and come to life.)
  • Terence (flashback): Did you say something, Tubb?
  • Tubb: Err, no. Did you?
  • (Terence just shakes his head and shrugs.)
  • Tubb: Can't be Benjie and Sis, either.
  • ???: (whisper) Over here!
  • Terence (flashback): It must be coming from the bathtub!
  • (They head over to the bathtub's surface to see where the noise is coming from. What they saw surprised them.)
  • (She has sticky suction cups behind it's hands, feet, and head. She also has magenta skin, five triangular arms, two legs and eyes, and a mouth on her front side.)
  • ???: What? You never seen a starfish sponge before?
  • Tubb: Err, not really. I just wanted to see what the noise was.
  • Starfish Sponge: The noise, huh?
  • (She unsticks from the side of the bath and heads over to the other side of it while jumping from bubble to bubble.)
  • Starfish Sponge: Well, I love to make noise!
  • Terence (flashback): That's lovely to hear! Umm... Who are you?
  • Starfish Sponge: Ooohh! I can't remember my own name!
  • Tubb: It's alright, Splashy. (ponders) Or should we call you Sploshy?
  • Starfish Sponge: Sploshy? Splish, splash, splosh!
  • (She cartwheels around Tubb and Terence.)
  • Sploshy (cont'd): I like the sound of that!
  • Tubb: Sploshy, it is, then. You can soak up water, right?
  • Sploshy: Of course, Tubb! After all, that's what sponges do!
  • Terence (flashback): Can you scrub against things, too?
  • Sploshy: Yes, Terence!
  • Tubb: So, Sploshy?
  • Sploshy: Go on! What do you want to say?
  • Tubb: How would you like to be part of our bathroom gang?
  • Sploshy: (gasps) Splish, splash, splosh! I'd love to!
  • Terence (flashback): Well, that's great! I'm very happy! Oohhooo!
  • Tubb: Welcome to the gang, Sploshy!
  • (Tubb shakes her triangular arm to signify that she's part of the bathroom gang now, with Terence watching joyfully.)
  • Reg: (off-screen) Now comes the exciting part.
  • (Cuts to Terence and Reg (as spirits) watching Sploshy, Terence, and Tubb in the hallway.)
  • Terence: The story of how you became part of the gang?
  • Reg: That is exactly right. For Christmas, Benjie and Sis wanted to have an actual non-bath toy they could play with.
  • (They begin to walk back to the Time Taxi.)
  • Reg (cont'd): Might seem surprising, but I would become an important member of the Rubbadubbers!
  • Terence: Shouldn't the name decision come until sometime after they got you?
  • Reg: Oh, sorry.
  • (Fades to Benjie and Sis, who have just finished writing their wish lists for Christmas.)
  • Benjie: Well, I think that's it. Sis, what do you want for Christmas?
  • Sis: I wish I have something to stylize my hair with!
  • Benjie: That's cute. If only I had a toy that I could actually play with outside of bathtime!
  • Benjie and Sis' dad: I'm sure you would, too. However, patience is a virtue. I know it's hard, but sometimes, what you get will be even more special.
  • (Fades to inside the bathroom where Sploshy is watching outside through a window, and is seeing snow. It is nearly Christmas, and Tubb and Terence are waiting for Sploshy to come down.)
  • Sploshy: Ooooohhh! It's all white outside. Must be snow!
  • Tubb: Erm, Sploshy? Would you come down for a minute?
  • (Sploshy turns around and jumps down to the ground near Tubb and Terence.)
  • Sploshy: What is it that you want to talk about?
  • Tubb: Well, it's partly about Christmas.
  • Terence (flashback): But it's also about the "children" situation.
  • Sploshy: What's Christmas?
  • Tubb: It's a special day where everyone gives each other presents!
  • Sploshy: Splish, splash, splosh! I love Christmas!
  • Terence (flashback): Well, yea, but don't you think it's time we got someone to patrol the bathroom for us?
  • Sploshy: A patroller?
  • Tubb: Yes, Sploshy. Must I remind you of the times where we were...
  • Sploshy: Ooh! Don't you dare remind me of the times where we were almost caught being alive!
  • Terence (flashback): Well, it is a good thing we barely managed to avoid revealing our secret to Benjie and Sis or else, who knows what'll happen?
  • Tubb: That's why we need a patroller for our bathroom!
  • Terence (flashback): Preferably, someone who can be played with both during and outside of bathtime!
  • Tubb: And one where he can do it all for me! After all, I'm not really interested in patrolling the bathroom!
  • Sploshy: But where are we going to find a toy like that?
  • Terence (flashback): Well, it's not like Benjie and Sis are going to the store and have their parents get them! Besides, it's nearly Christmas!
  • Tubb: I hope that whatever toy they get would be willing to patrol the bathroom and have fun when he's not patrolling!
  • (Fades to Benjie and Sis, who are waiting for their next gift.)
  • (Benjie and Sis' dad gives Benjie his next gift.)
  • Benjie and Sis' dad: Well, Benjie. Hope it's worth the wait.
  • (Benjie proceeds to opens his gift, with their parents looking at him joyfully.)
  • (The gift is soon opened, revealing a red robot with orange metal skin, green eyes, a diamond-shaped hole, a blue stammer for a mouth, and an on/off switch on his back.)
  • Benjie: Wow! Cool! A toy robot! Just what I wanted for Christmas!
  • (Benjie and Sis' parents smile at him once more, knowing that Benjie has gotten what he wants for Christmas.)
  • (Fades to Benjie and Sis' bedroom, where they are playing with their then-new toy robot along with Tubb, when their parents came into the bedroom.)
  • Benjie and Sis' mom: Okay, sweeties! Time to head over to your grandparents' house for their Christmas party!
  • Sis: Coming, mum/mom!
  • (Benjie turns off the toy robot, then heads out the door along with Sis and his parents.)
  • Benjie: Oh, this will be great!
  • Benjie and Sis' dad: I'm sure it will.
  • (As soon as Benjie and Sis's family left the house, Tubb comes to life and sees that Benjie and Sis have left the house.)
  • Tubb: Swimmin'! Benjie and Sis have gone! I better tell ever-
  • (Suddenly, the toy robot started to speak, alarming Tubb as he turns around.)
  • Toy Robot: Excuse me. Are the children gone?
  • Tubb: Aah! (falls over in fear) A robot!
  • Toy Robot: Wait! I'm not just any robot!
  • Tubb: Huh? You must be...
  • Toy Robot: A toy robot! Who else would I be?
  • Tubb: Umm... How are you moving if your switch is set to off?
  • Toy Robot: Well, I can come to life when the children are gone, even if I'm off. (flips the switch to on) (toy voice) I am Reg. How are you? (flips the switch to off) (normal voice) See?
  • Tubb: Ohhh! I see what you mean.
  • Reg (flashback): Yes, Tubb. I am Reg, the toy robot. Do you need any assist-assist-assist-help?
  • Tubb: Well, how would you like to be our patroller for the bathroom?
  • Reg (flashback): Patrol? The bathroom?! But I'm not made to be played with in the bath! (shows off his joints to Tubb) If I go in, I'll short-circuit and my joints will get all rusted!
  • Tubb: Well, we are looking for someone who can be played with both during and outside of bathtime.
  • Reg (flashback): (sad voice) Well, thanks for telling me.
  • (Reg begins to walk to the bed.)
  • Reg (flashback; cont'd): (sad voice) I guess I'll just go on the bed and lay there while you play with your friends...
  • (There was silence for a few moments, while Tubb is looking at Reg with a sad look. He then breaks the silence and cheerfully calls out to Reg.)
  • Tubb: Hey, Reg?
  • (Reg stops and turns around.)
  • Tubb: You know, thinkin' about it... Maybe you would the perfect bathroom patroller!
  • Reg (flashback): Are you sure abou-abou-abou-
  • (Reg begins to smile.)
  • Reg (flashback): Really?
  • Tubb: Of course! I mean, you can still play with us if you want. But you'd be perfect for checking to see if Benjie and Sis have gone or if they are coming back!
  • Reg (flashback): Well, why didn't you say so? I'd love to do that!
  • Tubb: Swimmin'! Well, that's settled. Why don't I show you my friends?
  • Reg (flashback): (nods) Sure!
  • Tubb: Then follow my lead. My friends and I will teach you all about patrolling the bathroom!
  • (Reg follows Tubb to the bathroom, while the present Reg, Terence, and Finbar are watching the events unfold in the hallway.)
  • Reg: Oh, this is it! This is going to be great!
  • (Cuts to the bathroom, where Sploshy and Terence are still lifeless.)
  • (Just then, Tubb came into the bathroom with Reg.)
  • Tubb: Hey!
  • (Terence and Sploshy come to life and look at Tubb and Reg.)
  • Tubb: Benjie and Sis have gone, and they just received a new toy for Christmas! His name is Reg, and he would like to greet you.
  • Reg (flashback): Greetings, Terence.
  • Terence (flashback): Oh, umm... Hi, Reg.
  • Sploshy: Hello, Reg!
  • Reg (flashback): Greetings, Sploshy.
  • (Sploshy and Terence head on over to the bathroom floor.)
  • Sploshy: Tubb, didn't Terence say that he would prefer someone who can be played both during and outside of bathtime?
  • Terence (flashback): Umm, yeah. But I actually think Reg is the perfect patroller for the bathroom!
  • Reg (flashback): You do? But how will I know if Benjie and Sis have gone or are coming for their bath?
  • Tubb: Well, that's why you wanted to learn how to patrol the bathroom, right?
  • Reg (flashback): That is correct.
  • Tubb: Good. Now, Terence. Would you kindly show Reg how it works?
  • Terence (flashback): Me?
  • Sploshy: Yes, Terence. Reg is learning how to patrol the bathroom, and you are going to show him how.
  • Terence (flashback): Umm... Okay.
  • (Fades to Terence standing on the counter with Reg.)
  • Terence (flashback): So, Reg. We are having too much fun to notice that Benjie and Sis are arriving for their bath. What should you do?
  • Reg: Umm... (shrugs) Nothing.
  • Terence (flashback): (moans and facepalms himself) Reg, it's just practice. And besides, you have to do something before they arrive!
  • Reg (flashback): Should I warn my friends about Benjie and Sis's arrival?
  • Terence (flashback): Yes. Exactly that.
  • Reg (flashback): But how should I say it?
  • Terence (flashback): How about "Benjie and Sis are coming"?
  • Reg (flashback): Uh... (confused) Who's Benjie and Sis?
  • Terence (flashback): Okay... Maybe just "The children are coming," then.
  • Reg (flashback): Or "are on their way". Or "almost here."
  • Terence (flashback): Umm, yeah. Those could work, too. Oh, and make sure to say "Bathtime scramble!" at the end, okay?
  • Reg (flashback): Will do. You and Tubb do give out the "all clear" whenever Benjie and Sis are gone, right?
  • Terence (flashback): Of course!
  • Reg (flashback): Then maybe I could give out the "all clear" for you and Tubb!
  • Terence (flashback): That's great! But how would you say it?
  • Reg (flashback): (ponders, then points his arm up, signifying that he has an idea) All clear! All clear! The children have gone!
  • (Terence is astonished by Reg's "all-clear" signal.)
  • Terence (flashback): Oh, dear me! Why, that will be perfect!
  • Reg (flashback): So, do I get to practice now?
  • Terence (flashback): Not quite, yet.
  • Reg (flashback): Oh. Umm... Do you know if I could patrol in a place where I won't get wet?
  • Terence (flashback): Well, there's always the hallway.
  • Reg (flashback): Hmm, yes. I might hang around there to remind you all if Benjie and Sis are coming or are gone.
  • Terence (flashback): Hmm, yes. I think that's all.
  • Reg (flashback): Actually, I think you're forget-forget-forget-missing something.
  • Terence (flashback): Huh? What might that be?
  • (Sploshy and Tubb walk over to Reg and Terence.)
  • Sploshy: We need to have a name for our gang!
  • Reg (flashback): (curious) A name? For our gang? Well, what should we call it?
  • Tubb: Maybe Tubb's Bath Gang?
  • Reg (flashback): It's good. But I want something more simple.
  • Sploshy: I know! How about the Splishy-Splashy-Sploshy Toys?
  • Tubb: Mmmm, no. That's a good name, as well. But I don't think that name would fit well with our gang.
  • Terence (flashback): Hmm... I wonder what we should call our gang?
  • Reg (flashback): Maybe the Splashing Wonders?
  • Terence (flashback): Erm… Could use a bit more "rub-a-dub-dub".
  • Reg (flashback): (gasps) Wait, how about the Rubbadubbers?
  • (Terence, Sploshy, and Tubb gasp at their final name, which was decided to be the Rubbadubbers.)
  • Tubb: Of course! Why haven't I thought of that?
  • Terence (flashback): Now that's the name I'm looking for!
  • Sploshy: Splish, splash, splosh! But I thought the Splishy-Splashy-Sploshy Toys would be better than the Rubbadubbers!
  • Reg (flashback): Well, it's simple, and yet, it still has a nice ring to it.
  • Sploshy: Well, whatever you say, Reg.
  • Tubb: Swimmin'! Now that we have all agreed on a name, what do we do now?
  • Terence (flashback): Just have fun!
  • Sploshy: But what about Reg?
  • Reg (flashback): Yes. Can I practice now?
  • Terence (flashback): Well, alright.
  • Reg (flashback): Yippee! This is going to be fun!
  • (Terence goes the surface of the bath, and plays with the Rubbadubbers for a bit.)
  • (Reg stands guard, then warns the Rubbadubbers.)
  • Reg (flashback): Rubbadubbers, Rubbadubbers, Benjie and Sis are coming! Bathtime scramble!
  • (The Rubbadubbers stopped whatever they were doing and looked at Reg with an annoyed look.)
  • Sploshy: (annoyed) Reg, why did you stop us?
  • Reg (flashback): I'm practicing my "warning" signal. Practice makes perfect.
  • Sploshy: Oh, alright.
  • (The Rubbadubbers (except for Reg) return to their original positions and pretend to be lifeless.)
  • (Reg waits for a bit before giving the "all clear" signal, though it didn't quite come out as expected at first.)
  • Reg (flashback): All gone, all g-all g- (shakes his head) Err, I meant, all clear! All clear! The children have gone!
  • Terence (flashback): (comes to life) Reg, what did you say?
  • Reg (flashback): Mmm... Must've made a mistake. No worries. I can learn from them. (Terence nods to him)
  • (Later that night, after Reg was done with practicing his signals and after the Rubbadubbers have all opened up their Christmas gifts, he was having fun with them, laughing and playing.)
  • Reg (flashback): Oh, oh, let me have one!
  • (Terence blows a bubble and throws it to Reg, who then proceeds to catch the bubble and throw it to Tubb.)
  • (Just then, Reg saw Benjie and Sis' car. He knew what this meant... They were coming for their bath! Luckily, Reg has prepared for this earlier that afternoon through practice, so he knew what to do.)
  • Reg (flashback): Huh? Oh, oh! Rubbadubbers, Rubbadubbers, the children are coming!
  • (The other Rubbadubbers stopped whatever they were doing and looked at Reg.)
  • Reg (flashback, cont'd): Bathtime scramble!
  • Tubb: Hey, Rubbadubbers. It's bathtime! Swimmin'!
  • (The Rubbadubbers return to their places and prepare for their next bath, while Reg goes to a spot where he won't get wet and short-circuit in the process and pretends to be lifeless along with the other toys.)
  • (The next morning, Reg is in the hallway looking to see if Benjie and Sis have gone. Sure enough, they were. Terence, Reg, and Finbar (all as spirits) are watching the events unfold in the hallway.)
  • Reg (flashback): Hmm, Benjie and Sis have gone!
  • (Reg then proceeds to give the other Rubbadubbers the "all-clear" so that they can safely come to life.)
  • Reg (flashback): All clear! All clear! The children have gone!
  • Tubb: Swimmin'!
  • Terence (flashback): Oh, goody! I knew you weren't patrolling the bathroom for nothing!
  • Reg (flashback): Standing guard is what I can do to help you. Maybe I can get used to doing this.
  • (Pans to the present-day Terence, Reg, and Finbar, who are watching the events unfold.)
  • Sploshy: We're glad that you could be part of the Rubbadubbers, Reg.
  • Reg (flashback): Thanks, Sploshy.
  • Reg: So, that's how I became part of the Rubbadubbers.
  • Terence: Wait a minute. Why was Tubb's gang called the Rubbadubbers?
  • Reg: That "rub-a-dub-dub" thing you mentioned to me gave me an idea to call our gang the "Rubbadubbers".
  • Finbar: So, you're saying that the gang is called the... arr, arr, arr... Rubbadubbers because of an idea Terence gave to you?
  • Reg: Certainly, Taxi Assistant Finbar.
  • Terence: So, who's next?
  • (The trio began to walk back to Reg's Time Taxi.)
  • Terence: Amelia? Winona? Finbar?
  • Reg: You'll see.
  • (Fades to back inside the Time Taxi.)
  • Reg: With another new year comes new friends and new experiences.
  • Terence: I'm pretty sure they wouldn't get Winona next, right?
  • Reg: Not yet, Terence.
  • Finbar: Oh, oh! Take the Mighty Taxi Assistant and us to the Mighty Shark's first day with Benjie and Sis.
  • Reg: Wait! I'm the one who's supposed to be...
  • (Before Reg could finish his sentence, Finbar modified the time-switcher. However, the time-switcher didn't switch to it's desired time. Instead, it switched to present day, shocking the trio.)
  • Finbar: Whoops.
  • Reg: Oh, no... Not again!
  • (The Time Taxi started to move on it's own again before flying off and disappearing into the air.)
  • (Cuts to present day, or rather, sometime after the day the Rubbadubbers reflected on their memories by looking at a scrapbook, where they are doing whatever they wanted to do.)
  • (Suddenly, Reg's Time Taxi appears out of nowhere and comes to a complete stop in the hallway. Several of the Rubbadubbers managed to dodge out of the way before they get hurt.)
  • (The time-travel trio recover themselves before they noticed that they are in present-day, and are not spirits, anymore, as they are not in the past anymore.)
  • Terence: Wait, this must be present-day! But the time travel journey isn't over, yet!
  • (Just then, the time-switcher broke apart.)
  • Terence and Reg: Oh, no! The time-switcher!
  • (Reg picks up the broken time-switcher.)
  • Reg: (disappointed) Ohhh... Now I won't be able to time-travel... Unless.. (he looks at the Rubbadubbers in present-day)
  • (Cuts to Sploshy, who turns and sees the time-travel trio, except that those are the same toys in the present-day!)
  • Sploshy: Wait, why am I seeing another Terence and Reg?
  • Terence: And another Finbar?
  • Terence (time-travel): (notices that present-day Terence is standing before him) Am I seeing double?
  • Finbar: (off screen) I don't think so. (moves to the time travel trio) (on screen) You must be in the wrong timeframe!
  • Reg: What is the ma-the ma- (shakes himself and beats his body with his robot arm) Is there a problem?
  • Finbar (time-travel): Well, yes. I tried to set the time-switcher to the time when Benjie and Sis first got me.
  • Reg (time-travel): But then it got set to present-day, and look...
  • (Reg shows the time-switcher to present-day Reg.)
  • Reg: Oh, dear.
  • Terence (time-travel): Maybe you can fix it, so that we can get back on track?
  • Reg: Well, I'll try. Besides, we've still got time left before the children come back for their bath!
  • Reg (time-travel): Outsta-outsta-outsta-Great!
  • (Fades to a montage of both Regs repairing the time-switcher and fixing it back in the Time Taxi.)
  • (Eventually, the Time Taxi has its time-switcher put back in.)
  • Finbar (time-travel): (sarcasm) Good thing you repaired this car. The Mighty Taxi Assistant was getting bored... Not! (laughs)
  • Reg (time-travel): Thank you, Reg.
  • Reg: No. Thank you, Reg the Memory Traveler.
  • (Present-day Reg proceeds to wink at the time-travel trio before walking back to the bathroom to get back to whatever the present-day Rubbadubbers were doing.)
  • Terence: So, where were we?
  • (The time travel trio proceeded to get back in the Time Taxi as Reg the Memory Traveler starts up the engine again.)
  • Reg (time-travel): Like I said, another new year means new friends and surprises. And wow, are we about to get some new toys to come and join the Rubbadubbers!
  • (The Time Taxi drives off once more before flying towards the window and disappearing once it goes through it.)
  • (Wavy transition to the bathroom, except that it was back to how it was after Reg became part of the then-newly-formed Rubbadubbers.)
  • (The door opens, and Benjie and Sis came in the bathroom with their then-new toy, which appears to be a cross of an airplane and a submarine with two red wings, a yellow head, a big red clown's nose, a red mouth, two blue eyes, a red propeller and three red wheels.)
  • Benjie: Nyeeeeow! Vroom! Here comes Amelia, about to make a grand entrance to the bathroom! ("lands" (i.e. puts) Amelia down on the bathroom floor)
  • Sis: You sure do love our new bathroom toy, don't you, Benjie?
  • Benjie: I really do! She's like a mix between an airplane and a submarine!
  • (Then, it was time for Benjie and Sis to go to school.)
  • Benjie (cont'd): Well, Sis. Time to head to school! Our parents are waiting for us!
  • Sis: Aww...
  • Benjie: Don't worry. We can play with her after school.
  • Sis: (sad voice) Okay, Benjie.
  • (They walk out the bathroom door.)
  • (Fades to Reg checking the hallway to see if Benjie and Sis are gone. Of course, they obviously have, since they have left for school.)
  • Reg (flashback): All clear! All clear! The children have gone!
  • (Cuts to the Rubbadubbers looking at Amelia.)
  • Terence (flashback): My, that's a funny looking airplane.
  • Tubb: Benjie and Sis have just gotten this toy recently. Terence, Sploshy,…
  • (Reg walks over to the gang with the then-new flying submarine, Amelia.)
  • Tubb (cont'd): Reg, I would like you to meet Amelia!
  • Sploshy and Terence (flashback): Oooohhh!
  • Reg (flashback): That's very impressive for a toy like that. A great addition to the Rubbadubbers, I might add.
  • Tubb: Welcome to your new home, Amelia!
  • (Amelia then comes to life for the first time.)
  • Amelia: M-M-M-My new home?
  • Reg (flashback): That is correct.
  • Amelia: Umm... (shy voice) Hello...
  • Terence (flashback): Looking a bit shy, are you, Amelia?
  • Amelia: Well... Yes. It is my first time being here, after all.
  • Tubb: Oh, it's okay, Amelia. Everybody wants to know you better. I'm Tubb, and these are my friends!
  • Amelia: Hi, Tubb…
  • Sploshy, Terence (flashback), and Reg (flashback): Hi, Amelia!
  • Sploshy: I'm Sploshy! I'm so happy you're here!
  • Terence (flashback): My name's Terence. Nice to meet you, Amelia.
  • Reg (flashback): I am Reg. Pleased to meet you.
  • (Amelia starts to feel a bit less shy.)
  • Amelia: Umm... Thanks. Hehe. I have wings, right?
  • Tubb: Of course, you do!
  • Amelia: And could I dive underwear, as well?
  • Terence (flashback): Well, duh. You're a flying submarine.
  • Amelia: (annoyed) Hey!
  • Terence (flashback): Oh, sorry.
  • Amelia: It's alright, Terence. (looks at Sploshy and Reg) And I'm very pleased to meet you, too, Sploshy and Reg!
  • Reg (flashback): We're very pleased to have you as part of our gang.
  • Amelia: Aww... Thanks!
  • (Amelia steadies her wings and prepares to fly.)
  • Amelia (cont'd): Hey, Rubbadubbers! Watch this!
  • (Amelia starts to fly around the bathroom.)
  • Amelia: Nyeeeeow! Vroom! Here comes Amelia, the flying submarine!
  • (The Rubbadubbers are waiting for Amelia to land. But of course, she wants to do something first.)
  • Tubb: Are you done, yet?
  • Amelia: Umm, no. Want to see me do a trick?
  • Reg (flashback): I think you need a regular sponge for that.
  • Amelia: A sponge? (stops flying and looks at the Rubbadubbers, still floating) But where could I find a sponge that can't be played with?
  • Terence (flashback): Did you try looking on the bathtub? (points to the bathtub)
  • Amelia: Err... Hang on a sec.
  • (Amelia heads off to search the bathtub for a sponge. She eventually finds a yellow sponge and picks it up, then flies down to the other Rubbadubbers and shows her then-new yellow sponge to them.)
  • Amelia: Will this work?
  • Tubb: I dunno. Why don't you try landing a trick on that sponge?
  • Amelia: Sure thing, Tubb!
  • (Amelia begins to perform her first trick by flying around the bathroom for a bit.)
  • Amelia: Nyeeeeow! Here comes Amelia, about to perform her first ever trick with her new sponge!
  • (To everybody's surprise. Amelia makes her first sponge landing successfully, astonishing the Rubbadubbers even further.)
  • Terence (flashback): How did you do that?
  • Amelia: What did you expect? With my new sponge, I could perform amazing tricks!
  • Reg (flashback): Well, that's good. Now, we have another new addition to the Rubbadubbers!
  • Amelia: Oh, yeah. A flying submarine! That's fantastic!
  • (Wavy transition to the bathroom, albeit now it is Spring Break, which means that Benjie and Sis have no school during that time.)
  • (Terence, Reg, and Finbar (as spirits again) are standing in the hallway, while the Rubbadubbers (excluding Finbar and Winona, who haven't became part of the gang, yet) play around.)
  • Finbar: So, is this the time where Benjie and Sis first got the Mighty Shark?
  • Reg: I think so.
  • Finbar: Oh, good. (excited) I've been waiting quite a while for this!
  • (Cuts to Reg, who starts to warn the Rubbadubbers.)
  • Reg (flashback): Rubbadubbers! Rubbadubbers! Benjie and Sis are off school for Spring Break!
  • Amelia: Spring Break? You mean that...
  • Tubb: Yes, Amelia. Benjie and Sis are off school.
  • Terence (flashback): Which means that we won't be able to come to life during Spring Break unless if Benjie and Sis leave the house!
  • Reg (flashback): Exactly. And I can have a nice break for as long as I can, too!
  • Sploshy: Splish, splash, splosh! I can't wait to be played with by Benjie and Sis!
  • Tubb: Me too! But first, they're gonna have to take a bath. So... Everybody, it's bathtime! Swimmin'!
  • (The Rubbadubbers return to their original positions and pretend to be lifeless again.)
  • (Fades to the bathroom, where Reg is patrolling the bathroom. As expected, Benjie and Sis have left the house, meaning that they have school again, and their spring break is over.)
  • Reg (flashback): Rubbadubbers, Rubbadubbers, all clear! The children are gone!
  • (In the midst of the bathroom is a then-new bathroom toy that Benjie and Sis have gotten over Spring Break.)
  • Reg (flashback; cont'd): Ooh! And they got a new toy, too!
  • Sploshy: Splish, splash, splosh!
  • Tubb: Swimmin'!
  • Terence: Hope that whatever they got is friendly.
  • (The other Rubbadubbers arrive at the spot where the then-new bathroom toy is. Upon arrival, they are astonished by what the then-new bathroom toy looked like.)
  • (It had a white and blue body, several teeth, two oval-shaped eyes, a shark's tail, two wheels, three fins, and one white wind-up key.)
  • Tubb: That toy looks very mighty!
  • Reg (flashback): It certainly looks like it. I mean, it is a wind-up shark, after all. Benjie and Sis thought that it would be worth playing with in the bath, because they were interested in getting a toy shark.
  • (As the Rubbadubbers are talking about the newcomer, the wind-up shark comes to life for the first time and looks at the bathtub, then proceeds to move into the bathtub.)
  • Amelia: Maybe he's friendly. Maybe he's not. But he'll probably get used to be-ing…
  • (The Rubbadubbers turn around and noticed that the spot where the wind-up shark was empty.)
  • Amelia (cont'd): Well, that's strange.
  • Sploshy: Where did it go?
  • (Just then, they hear a voice seemingly out of nowhere.)
  • ???: Arr, arr, arr!
  • (The Rubbadubbers become shocked by the voice.)
  • Tubb: What was that?
  • Amelia: It must be coming from the bathtub!
  • (Amelia flies over to the bathtub. But it is not on the surface. She goes underwater to search for it, but to no avail.)
  • Amelia: Nope! Not here!
  • ???: Arr! Arr, arr, arr! Arr, arr!
  • Terence (flashback): Maybe it's behind the bottles!
  • (Terence goes over to the bottles on the counter and pushes them aside, hoping to find the wind-up shark, but finds nothing, instead. Meanwhile, the wind-up shark moves away from the bottles.)
  • Terence (flashback): Not a toy in sight. Just empty space.
  • Reg (flashback): It can't be coming from the bedroom. It's a bath toy!
  • (Sploshy searches the bathroom floor only to find that it's not sitting on the floor, like it once was.)
  • Sploshy: And it's not on the bathroom floor, either!
  • Tubb: Then where is it?
  • Amelia: Beats me!
  • (As the Rubbadubbers looked around the bathroom for the wind-up shark, it sneaks up to them with a glare on his face, ready to give them a scare.)
  • ???: (chuckles) Boo!
  • (All the other Rubbadubbers are scared by the wind-up shark, as Amelia flies off.)
  • Reg (flashback), Terence (flashback), Tubb, and Sploshy: It's the Mighty, Scary Shark!
  • (Reg, Terence, Tubb, and Sploshy all run around the bathroom, panicking while the Mighty Shark chuckles, knowing that he scared them before he was interupted by Amelia.)
  • Amelia: Hey, back off! Those are my friends!
  • Mighty Shark: Arrrgh! She's after the Mighty Shark!
  • (The Mighty Shark moves as quickly as it could to a hiding spot while screaming.)
  • (Tubb, Terence, Reg, and Sploshy stop running.)
  • Terence (flashback): What was that?
  • Reg (flashback): Must be that Mighty Shark!
  • (The Rubbadubbers head over to the spot where the Mighty Shark is hiding, and Amelia goes in to see him still scared as he's chattering his teeth and hoping that Amelia will stop following him.)
  • Ameila: Hey, are you okay?
  • Mighty Shark: Argh! She's coming to get me!
  • (He tries to move away, but Amelia stops him.)
  • Amelia: It's alright! It's only me! I was just trying to make sure no one got hurt!
  • (The Mighty Shark stops chattering his teeth and takes a little breather before he finally calms down.)
  • Mighty Shark: Huh? Arr, arr, arr... So, it was you, all along?
  • Amelia: Yes. I'm Amelia. Why don't you come out and meet my friends?
  • Mighty Shark: Well, whatever you say, Amelia. Hope they're friendly, after all.
  • (The Mighty Shark and Amelia both leave the hiding spot and meet up with the other Rubbadubbers.)
  • Amelia: Everyone, meet your newest member!
  • (Cuts to the Mighty Shark, who shows off his fins and jaws and swings his tail back and forth.)
  • Amelia (cont'd): (off-screen) He may think he's mighty scary, but he's more scared than you think! That doesn't stop him from using his tail to cool ourselves off, though.
  • Mighty Shark: That is... arr, arr... exactly right!
  • (Cuts back to the Rubbadubbers, astonished by the new Mighty Shark, and what he has to offer.)
  • Mighty Shark: The name's Finbar. Finbar… arr, arr, arr,... the Mighty Shark!
  • (The other Rubbadubbers (except Amelia) said "hello" to Finbar, the new wind-up shark toy.)
  • (Cuts to Finbar and Amelia.)
  • Finbar (flashback): Hmm... (to himself) The Mighty Shark appears to be delighted by the other Rubbadubbers welcoming him into the gang! (to the other Rubbadubbers) Do you think I'll like it here with Benjie and Sis?
  • Tubb: (off-screen) Yes, Finbar.
  • (Finbar is delighted by Tubb's response.)
  • (Cuts to Tubb.)
  • Tubb (cont'd): They have played with you for a good while, Mighty Finbar!
  • (Sploshy moves to Tubb.)
  • Sploshy: Of course they wanna have you as part of the Rubbadubbers!
  • (Cuts to a whole group shot of the Rubbadubbers.)
  • Finbar (flashback): (spins around in excitement) Fintastic! Now, arr arr arr, when can I start playing?
  • Terence (flashback): Perhaps... now?
  • Finbar (flashback): Sounds mighty all-righty to me!
  • (Finbar moves to the bathtub and jumps in the water.)
  • (Fades to the bathtub, where Finbar is swimming in the bath water, pretending to be the Mighty Shark, with the other Rubbadubbers (except Reg) watching. Summer vacation/holiday had just started for Benjie and Sis, so they are heading back home for the whole summer.)
  • Finbar (flashback): (to himself) The Mighty Shark waves effortlessly through the water. Enjoying his time with the gang. (dives beneath the water) But which one will join the gang next?
  • (Cuts to Terence and Tubb.)
  • Terence (flashback): Erm… I'm not really sure.
  • (Cuts to Finbar.)
  • Finbar (flashback): You know... I'm not so sure about that, either...
  • (Suddenly, Reg is alerted of Benjie and Sis' arrival, and warns the Rubbadubbers.)
  • Reg (flashback): Rubbadubbers! Rubbadubbers! Benjie and Sis are com- are com- are almost here!
  • (The other Rubbadubbers cheer.)
  • Finbar (flashback): Arr, arr, arr!
  • Terence (flashback): Bathtime!
  • Tubb: Swimmin'!
  • (Terence goes over to his usual spot as Tubb prepares to jump in the bathtub. He then jumps in the bathtub.)
  • (We fades to the Rubbadubbers having fun in the bathroom. It was the first day of summer vacation/holiday, and Benjie and Sis have gone off to some place. So the Rubbadubbers are having fun playing around in the bathroom. Until...)
  • (A baby whale squeaks in the bathroom.)
  • (The Rubbadubbers became startled by the noise.)
  • Tubb: What was that?
  • Sploshy: Sounds like a baby whale!

Rest TBA...

Trivia

  • This is one of the few instances in this series where "if only" was said inside a dream sequence, but it doesn't serge into another dream sequence. In this case, before Terence's arrival early on, Tubb says "if only [he] had a friend [he] could actually play with," but he doesn't go to the dream world, and later on in the episode, Benjie says "if only [he] had a toy [he] could actually play with outside of bathtime," but because he's a human, he can't actually go to the dream world.
    • The former instance could most likely be due to the fact that said scene takes place in the dream sequence for this episode to begin with.
  • This is the first double-length Rubbadubbers episode.
