- (open with blue fish eating seaflowers, when a young snorkeater who appears to be attacking it goes after the flowers and eats those instead)
Female Snorkeater: Yoo hoo, Gilroy!
Gilroy: Coming, mom. *swims back home*
Male Snorkeater: *punches snorkbag* Well son, were you out snork-hunting on the reef?
Gilroy: No dad, just eating some searaniums, mmm.
Gilroy's Dad: Searaniums?! You're a snorkeater! You're supposed to be eating snorks!
Gilroy: I don't like snorks. I'd rather eat seaflowers.
Gilroy's Mom: *cries* Ooh, my only son's a vegetarian!
Gilroy's Dad: Look what you're doing to your mother! *kicks Gilroy out* Young man, it's time you go out and act like a real snorkeater.
Gilroy: But dad.
Gilroy's Dad: And don't even think about coming back until you've eaten a snork. *Gilroy leaves*
(off elsewhere, Daffney sits with a casette player and Jojo swims over to her)
Daffney: Hi, Jojo. You're just in time for your language lesson.
Cassette: Hello, I am a snork.
Jojo: Hello, me am a snork.
Daffney: *giggles* I think you better keep practicing, Jojo. Just keep listening to the tape, and you'll soon be speaking like a native.
Jojo: Oh, me glad.
Cassette: No, I'm glad.
Daffney: And I have to jet back to Snorkland to meet Allstar and Tooter.
Jojo: Okay. Besides, me hungry anyway.
Daffney: No Jojo, I'm hungry.
Jojo: You hungry, too? *grabs seaweed* Here, have bite.
Daffney: Uh, Jojo, that's not what I meant. I said "I'm hungry" because you said "Me hungry." I'm not hungry at all.
Jojo: No, you am confused.
Daffney: Bye, Jojo.
Jojo: Bye, Daffney. *eats it* Good, me get another. *gets some and sees Gilroy* Oops, me not supposed to eat snorkeater.
Gilroy: No, I'm supposed to eat you. *swallows Jojo* I didn't want to, but I did it.
Jojo: *swings him around* Me not like being eaten!
Gilroy: Believe me, I didn't like it any better than you did! *cries*
(see other snorks playing mini-golf in Snorkland)
Junior: Oh, you guys are in trouble now. I'm gonna use my lucky golf ball. Caddyfish, my club. *hands it to him, and then hits the ball* Shar! Looks liek a hole in one!
Allstar: *after it misses* You mean a hole in none.
Junior: Hey, that's my lucky ball! I can't play without it! *goes after it*
Gilroy: *telling story to Jojo and crying at the same time* My dad told me that until I eat a snork, I, I could never come back home!
Jojo: *crying too* That am sad story. How can I help?
Gilroy: A snork help a snorkeater? I'm touched. *cries some more*
Junior: *searching for his ball* That's ball's gotta be around here somewhere. Uh, I borrowed that lucky ball from my dad. If I don't find it, I'm in deep *gulps at the sight* trouble. A sa-, a sa- a snorkeater!
Jojo: Don't worry, little snorkeater.
Junior: Hey! That's Jojo! *watches it*
Jojo: *shakes hands with Gilroy before they seperate* Me try to help you all I can.
Junior: Jojo helping a snorkeater?! Why that double-snork, double-crosser!
(meanwhile, Tooter's playing golf while Daffney and Allstar watch)
Junior: *swims toward them* Hey, batten the hatches, swim for the hill! I just saw Jojo promising to help a snorkeater! They're planning to attack Snorkland.
Daffney: Jojo would never do anything to hurt Snorkland.
Junior: Well I saw it with my own eyes. *swims away*
Allstar: Well I don't know what Junior saw, but we better go see for ourselves. *all swim to find Jojo*
(meanwhile, Jojo is playing the casette for Gilroy)
Casette: Hello, I am a snork.
Gilroy: Hello, I am a snork.
Jojo: No, you am a snorkeater.
Allstar: *sees it* I don't believe it.
Daffney: Oh, Jojo, how could you?!
Jojo: Daffney, my old friends! You am just the snorks we looking for.
Allstar: What? For his lunch?
Jojo: No, Gilroy friendly, me can explain.
Gilroy: So, until I eat a snork, I can never go home.
(Tooter and Daffney cry)
Daffney: *cries* A vegetarian snorkeater, poor thing.
Jojo: Don't worry, me think Allstar getting starfish idea.
Allstar: That's starbright idea, and it just might work.
(meanwhile, Junior and Willie are swimming together)
Junior: Ah, this is just clamtastic. An army of snorkeaters loose, and I'm stuck with my little brother.
Willie: Yeah, your little brother.
Allstar: Help! *Gilroy roars*
Willie: Junior, that sounds like Allstar! And a snorkeater!
Junior: *covers Willie's mouth* Shh, keep undercover, and follow me.
Daffney: Please, don't eat us, please!
Gilroy: *acting out for them*
Allstar: I'm too young to be a snork snack! Oh, have mercy! *winks at him*
(Gilroy's parents come outside and see the "action")
Gilroy's Dad: What's all the racket?
Gilroy's Mom: Look dear, it's Gilroy!
Junior: *watching* Great guppies! That snorkeater's got them cornered!
(Gilroy chases them)
Daffney: So far, so good.
Allstar: Now, for the big finale. Okay, guys, let's hit it.
(all squeal and scream)
Junior: *watching* Oh, how horrible. Even Allstar didn't deserve a fate like that.
Gilory: *rubs stomach* Those three snorks I ate sure tasted good, yuum!
Gilory's Mom: Oh, Gilroy, I'm so proud of you!
Gilroy's Dad: I knew you could do it, son.
Willie: Look, it's Jojo!
Jojo: It worked! Me am so happy! *giggles*
Junior: That fiend!
Willie: Yeah, that fiend! Let's get him!
Junior: *grabs him* Hold it, that Jojo's plenty tough. Better let the Snorkland Guard handle him. *swim away*
Gilory's Mom: Oh, I can't wait to tell the neighbors. *swims away with Gilroy's Dad*
Gilory: *to cave* Psst, coast is clear.
Jojo: Now you official snorkeater.
Gilroy: Thanks to you nice snorks. It was a pleeasure to meet you, and not have to eat you.
Daffney: I wish more snorkeaters felt that way.
Tooter: *nods his head in agreement*
(meanwhile, Junior tells his dad what he had seen)
Junior: And then, the ferocious snorkeater closed in on the kids, and, oh, it's too horrible to go on. *snorks rant* Gee, I wonder if I can have Allstar's snorkball mitt now.
Governor Wetworth: My fellow nsorks, we must find this vicious snorkeater, and stop him, before he eats again.*all go after him*
Allstar: I never thought I'd see the day that snorks helped a snorkeater.
Tooter: *warns them of Snorkland Guards*
Allstar: You're right, Tooter. it is the Snorkland Guard.
Gilroy: Thanks again, Jojo. You helped make me, and my whole family, very happy. *both he and Jojo get captured and tangled up in nets*
Junior: Your days of helping snorkeaters get snork snacks are over, Jojo!
Willie: Yeah, over!
Jojo: Wait, me can explain. Me innocent, so is Gilroy.
Junior: What did I tell you, dad? Jojo's on a first-name basis with these guys!
Governor Wetworth: Junior's right! Tie him up!
Jojo: Me not like be tied up! *escapes*
Governor Wetworth: Stop him! *falls over*
Junior: Yeah, stop him!
Jojo: *as guards chase him, he breaks free from the nets*
Junior: *after Gilroy is tied up* Well, at least we got the snorkeater.
Willie: *sees above him, and he and the others swim away from Gilroy's Dad*
Jojo: *gets out of clam* Thanks, Clifford.
Clifford the Clam: It's alright.
Jojo: *sees chase* That snorkeater not play around! *stops him* Pick on someone your own size!
Gilroy's Dad: I like a snack with spirit! *chases him*
Gilroy: *chews himself out of seaweed trap* Most snorkeaters hate seaweed, but I love it.
Governor Wetworth: Say, if Jojo's in cahoots with the snorkeaters, how come that big snorkeater's chasing him?
Junior: It's just a trick, dad - to confuse us. *shoulder's tapped* Willie, stop it.
Allstar: What's going on?
Junior: Aaah, ghosts, keep away!
Governor Wetworth: Junior saw that little snorkeater eat you!
Allstar: *laughs* That was just a trick to make his parents think he ate snorks.
Daffney: Because he'd really rather eat seaweed.
Tooter: *laughs himself silly*
Junior: Very funny, you mean it was all a big act?
Gilory: Yes, but that's no act out there. My dad loves snorks, and he's about to eat Jojo!
Jojo: *stops* Keep away, me warning you.
Gilroy's Dad: *laughs* I like supper with a sense of humor!
Gilroy: Dad, this one's mine.
Gilroy's Dad: Alright, son, bon appetit.
Gilroy: Better make it good, Jojo.
Jojo: Me make it real good. *tears off sticks and throws it around while screeching*
Gilroy's Dad: You need some help, son?
Gilroy: Nope. He was one tough snork, though. Tough, but tasty.
Gilroy's Dad: *Ah. *laughs* That's my boy.
(back at mini-golf)
Allstar: I hope you learned a lesson, Junior.
Daffney: Yeah, jumping to conclusions can be hazardous to your health.
Junior: Junpimg to conclusions?! Hey, I just call 'em like I see 'em! And I say you're gonna be seeing a hole in one!
(it misses yet again, but lands in Junior's mouth)
Jojo: *laughs* For once, Junior right!
