(at school, the snorks are working on the school newspaper with Casey as the chief)
Dimmy: Here it is, Chief. Hot off the press - the first edition of the Snorkland High Bugler!
Allstar: Gee, it looks great, Casey.
Casey: Thanks, Allstar. How's our printer holding up?
Dimmy: No problem! Tooter has everything under control!
(see him and Ocy working on it when Junior stops by)
Junior: Stop the presses!
Casey: What is it, Junior?
Junior: Only the scoop of the century - an exclusive interview with my father, the Governor!
Tooter: *rolls his eyes*
Junior: We're talkin' page one feature here! My father tells of how he became a big success!
Allstar: You call that a scoop?!
Junior: You bet, Allwet! Inquiring minds wanna know.
Casey: Sorry, Junior, but we already have our front page story - Allstar's rare eyewitness report on the Snaggletooth Snook. Allstar even took a picture of it.
Junior: Let me see that! *reads it* Hmm, snork snaps snaggy snook. Ha!
Casey: Well it;'s the first time anyone's ever photographed that fish.
Dimmy: Yeah, Allstar will be famous!
Junior: Oh yeah?! It just so happens that I'm on the trail of an even bigger fish story!
Allstar: Like what?
Junior: Would you believe an exclusive photo of a snorkeating wolf-fish?
Casey: But, wolf-fish live beyond the limits!
Allstar: That could be dangerous!
Junior: Danger is this reporter's middle name! *trips*
Allstar: Oh, boy!
(later on, Junior has Willie dress liek a wolf-fish so he can take the picture)
Junior: Alright, Willie, now don't forget what I told ya. When I say go, you may go run and jump over the cliff, flap your fins like crazy, and look straight into the camera. Any questions?
Willie: Yeah, why am I doing this?
Junior: Because I need to photograph a wolf-fish for the Bugler!
Willie: Oh. But why not a real wolf-fish?
Junior: What do you think I am? Nuts?! Besides, this is what you call the "new journalism." *laughs*
Willie: The new journalism! *laughs*'
Junior: Okay, WIllie, go! *he flaps his fins high* That's it! Flap those fins! And hold steady, Willie, this isn't a movie, ya know!
Willie: I'm tryin'! *gets blown by the strong current* Oh no!
Junior: Hey Willie, where do you think you're goin'?
Junior: *goes after him* Oh brother!
(Willie and the wind end up going right through town)
Snork: Wolf-fish! *his pet snail follows him*
Willie: This suit's too heavy!
Junior: Good work, WIllie! It won't be long now. *laughs*
Willie: I'm gonna f-fall!!!
Junior: *tries getting the picture* That's it, Willie, come closer. *snaps it* Got ya!
Willie: *bumps into him*
Junior: Wow, what a picture! Won't they be surprised? *laughs*
Willie: *moans* Yeah, surprised. *laughs but moans again*
(the snorks are still working on the paper)
Casey: How long before you're finished with that sports story, Tooter?
Tooter: *shows it to Casey*
Junior: Eureka! *walks in, holding up the picture* Page one, here I come! Feast your eyes on the first picture taken of the dreaded wolf-fish.
Allstar: *takes it* You're kidding!
Junior: Seeing is believeing, Allstar!
Casey: There's soemthing fishy about this photo.
Allstar: Yeah, sicne when do fish have feet?
Allstar: Not only that, he's wearing sneakers.
Junior: Uh oh.
Casey: I hope you're not trying to pass off a fake photo, Junior.
Allstar: Yeah, you could get the school into a lot of toruble doing that.
Junior: *nervously chuckles* Hey, come on! *takes photo back* Where's your sense of humor? This was a joke, see? I was only kiddin'.
Occy: *gets it on him and throws it away*
Allstar: Well it isn't very funny, Junior.
Junior: Just wait'll I come back with a photo of a real wolf-fish, Allstar. Then the joke will be on you.
Occy: *growls and chases him out*
(Junior and Willie gather all the equipment at their house later on)
Junior: Hmm, now let's see. I got the camera, the tripod, a couple of plankburgers, my compass, what am I missing?
Willie: *holds it out for him*
Junior: Oh yeah, the wolf-fish spray repellant! Thanks, Willie.
Willie: Gee, Junior, I've never gone beyond the limits. Won't you take me with you? Please, oh please? Double please?
Junior: Forget it, Willie. It's your fault that i have to track down a real wolf-fish in the first place. Besides, you'll only get in my way. *trips over his stuff again*
Willie: Huh, I think he's gonna need me.
(everyone else is still at school, working on the Bugler)
Allstar: Keep it rolling, Occy! We've got to finish printing this issue before first period tomorrow morning!
Governor Wetworth: *stops by* Oh!
Casey: Governor Wetworth!
Governor Wetworth: So this is the newsroom of th Snorkland High Bugler. And this must be your, yeah, printing press. How unusual.
Allstar: *referring to his cape* Governor, look out! *gets his cape stained anyway*
Totoer: *apologizes as he hands him back the ink covered cape*
Governor Wetworth: Well, I've been smeared by the press before, but never like this!
Allstar: Gee, Governor, we're awfully sorry.
Governor Wetworth: Oh nevermind that. I've come here to find Junior.
Allstar: Governor, we haven't seen him since this morning.
Governor Wetworth: Oh, that is bad news! I haven't Junior and WIllie show up for dinner tonight!
Casey: Well if we see them, we'll be sure to send them home.
Governor Wetworth: Oh, pelase do. Their mother and I are very worried.
Casey: Gee, you don't suppose Junior actually went out to find a real wolf-fish?
Allstar: Well not even Junior would be that foolish.
Allstar and Casey: Then again!
Allstar: We better find them.
Tooter: *toots as he follows them*
(Junior's out beyond the limits this time)
Junior: Gosh, what scary lookin' fish. I should come beyond the limits.
Willie: The limits!
Junior: What was that? An echo?!
Willie: *runs to him* J-J-J-Junior?
Willie: *laughs* Hi, Junior!
Junior: I thought I told ya not to follow me! But as long as you have *places the equipment on him* you might as well make yourself useful.
(they hear noises, so Willie jumps into Junior's arms)
Willie: *shakes* Wh-what was that?
Junior: *shakes* S-sounds like a wolf-fish. *a real one pops out and howls* Would you look at the size of that thing? How am I gonna get close enough to take a picture of that without becoming a snork snack?
(meanwhile, the gang uses the Silverfish to find the Wetworth boys while Occy sniffs out his trail)
Casey: Gee, Allstar, we're already beyond the limits. Where could Junior be?
Allstar: I don't know, but Occy seems to be hot on his trail. Before we left, I gave him a good whiff of Junior's gym shoes.
Tooter: *as Allstar holds them out, he covers his nose*
(the wolf-fish is napping now)
Junior: Look, I think he's asleep. Come on, now's our chance. *they move in closer to it* Palce the camera right there. Good job. Now get ready to see newspaper history in the making.
(but they're on top of a manna ray without even knowing it)
Willie: Uh oh.
Junior: Stop movin' around, Willie, you're kickin' up sand!
Willie: Uh, but Junior...
Junior: Hold it, WIllie, I've almost got him in focus.
Willie: But, but, but-but-but --
Junior: Hey, where'd he go? *they both get thrown off of the creature and onto the wolf-fish, causing him to wake up* Don't worry, Willie, I'll use the wolf-fish repellant! *sprays are shaving cream instead* Shaving cream?!
Willie: Whoops, my mistake.
Junior: Ooh, Willie! *as the wolf-fish chases after them, the photo is taken automatically, but they go into hiding* Alright, WIllie, you can come out now.
Willie: *in conkshell* Out now?! But I sort of like it in here!
Willie: *jumps out* You don't have to shout!
Junior: Come on, we have to go back and get the camera!
Willie: Get the camera!!! But-but what about the wolf-fish?
Junior: Thanks to my quick thinking, we gave him the slip. By the time he realizes it, we'll be halfway home. Wolf-fish are almost as dangerous, as they are dumb. *laughs*
Junior: We ought a be able to see the camera from up here. *they're standing on top of the wolf-fish as it growls at them constantly* Keep your eyes open, Willie. make yourself useful for once. Well, you don't have to get angry!
Willie: But Junior, that wasn't me!
Junior: It, it, it wasn't?! *wolf-fish chases them* YIKES!
(Allstar has Occy sniff the shoes again)
Allstar: Come on, Occy. I know you can find the trail again.
Junior: HELP! HELP US, SOMEBODY!
Allstar: Maybe you won't have to. Let's go!
(the wolf-fish tries to eat them in their small cave as Tooter toots an alarm)
Allstar: Occy, you have to distract the wolf-fish so we can save them. Hurry!
Occy: *inks it in the process*
Junior: Gee, Allstar, I never thought I'd be glad to see your face.
Casey: Come on, guys, back in the Silverfish.
Allstar: *takes the camera* Hey, wait for me! *but the wolf-fish starts chasing them*
Junior: He's gainin' on us!
Allstar: Maybe I can stop him! I hope this works! *snaps photo, which blinds the wolf-fish*
Casey: *as they all get back on the Silverfish* Good thinking, Allstar! You blinded the wolf-fish!
Allstar: But not for long. *it tries eating the Silverfish, but gives up once the gnag leaves*
(the next day, Casey is reviewing the latest headline)
Allstar: Gee, Casey, this issue's the most exciting yet!
Casey: Yeah, wait'll everyone reads about our adventure with the wolf-fish.
Junior: *grabs it and reads it* You mean my adventure, don't you? What's this? "Allstar Outfoxes Wolf-Fish - Rescues Governor's Sons"?! Oh no!
Allstar: Congratulations, Junior! You've finally made the front page! *laughs*
Junior: *cringes his teeth at him*
