[seagull squawking]
[Arlo squawking]
[in sing-song] Good morning, birds.
[squawks, laughs]
- Good morning, old rusty sign!
- [screeches]
Another beautiful day
in Seaside by the Seashore,
my new home!
[glass squeaking]
- Good morning, Furlecia!
- Good morning to you, Arlo!
- [squawks]
- [screams]
- Morning, Tony.
- Morning.
Do me a favor,
scream if you see the health inspector.
Deal of the day, folks, buy one slice,
get another one for the same price!
[in sing-song] Good morning,
majestic fountain horse!
- [quietly] Good morning, Marcellus.
- Remove yourself from my fountain at once.
[Arlo laughs slyly]
Bertie, come out! Hurry!
What is it? Who's after you?
The seagulls? I'll end them.
I'm safe, but I appreciate
knowing you got my back.
And guess what?
I got something for our apartment.
Uh, our apartment?
As I've said before, several times,
we're neighbors,
not roommates.
I have my own apartment,
and you have
your own apartment right there.
Yes, that is exactly what I meant.
And we both agreed that having our own
separate spaces would be a good thing.
Builds independence.
Psst, I know!
I'm no little swamp baby anymore.
I'm super independent now.
I brush my teeth at least once a month,
which is exactly why I got you something.
[gasps] It's here! Your surprise!
Behold the splendor, baby.
[honks horn] Yo!
What is that?
It's our dreams come true.
My dreams don't look like that.
Alia and I found it on the beach.
Oh! [chuckles nervously]
- What a fun surprise!
- [squishes]
[gasps] It's so wet and soggy.
[both] Yay!
Wet and soggy!
Wet and soggy! Wet and soggy!
- [grunts]
- [couch squishing]
Arlo, I'm so sorry. I didn't
Sorry for what? You made it even better!
Now we can both take a piece.
I was gonna suggest
you guys do joint custody,
but this is much better, trust me.
[phone chimes]
Looks like my shift at Tony's
is about to start two hours ago.
- All right. Have fun, guys.
- [tires squeal]
Bye! Alrighty,
let's move these bad babies inside.
[grunting] Don't worry.
I got this, no help needed here.
Oh! Oh.
There, how's that?
Ah, perfect. This is the most exciting
thing to ever happen to me.
It is very exciting.
- [squeals happily] I knew you love it.
- Thanks for my new couch half.
Wanna a play a game? I got horseshoes.
We can play Kick Ol' Willie Out the Barn.
Actually, I'm gonna go back to my place.
I still have some unpacking to do.
Ah, see?
I was just testing you, and you passed.
[chuckling] Okay.
And the prize for passing this test is,
I'm gonna bake you a pie.
- Want to bake it with me?
- I'll see you later.
All right! Go on!
I've got a lot to do, too.
If you want to hang out
in two minutes, I'll be here.
Got the place all to myself. I like this.
I hope Bertie's not too lonely
all by herself over there.
Hey, Bertie! Think I should
move my couch up to my room?
Um, that's up to you, it's your apartment.
- [loud thud]
- [gasps] Are you okay?
Yeah! Ooph! I just moved
my couch half to the stairs.
Want to come see?
Uh, no thanks!
I'm gonna have some quiet time now.
[Arlo] Okay, me too!
- [couch squishes]
- [sighs]
This is nice.
[panting] Ooh!
This is nice?
Now what?
[phone ringing]
Tony's Pizzeria. Talk fast, time is money.
Hey, Teeny Tiny Tony!
Arlo? Agh!
Quit clogging up the phone line!
What if a real customer
tried to order?
- Tony's Pizzeria, what's your order
- Hi! Me again!
No, wait, don't hang up.
I, uh, I I need to ask you something.
Tony, what dreams would you dare to dream
if you knew you could not fail?
Listen, this line's for customers only!
Okay. Then I shall order a pizza.
What kind's your favorite?
Ugh. I'm not doing this with you.
You're getting a classic.
Ready in 20, great doing business.
But, I I miss him already.
- [doorbell rings]
- [gasps]
Fresh hot pizza delivery!
- Great, want to help me with it?
- Actually, I was hungry, so
I hope you're not.
That's okay.
I'm not really hungry. I just
Gotta run! Tony's mad today.
Got that forehead vein. Bye!
wanted to talk.
Bertie, want to come
have some mostly-eaten pizza?
[calm music playing over headphones]
Okay, you must be busy.
[Furlecia] Spill it. What's bothering you?
I've been giving you
a pageboy cut for two hours,
and every time I say I'm done,
you order another trim.
Well, you see, my hair grows really fast.
Mama, I used to crimp my own bangs.
I know a cry for help when I see one!
Something is weird with my apartment.
There's so much time and space.
I don't know
what I'm supposed to do all day.
I hear you. Your place
isn't your home until you break it in.
You need to throw a housewarming party!
You announce to the world,
"I am here, my house is warm,
my skin is flawless,
and I am, you guessed it, thriving!"
A housewarming party. That sounds perfect!
Attention, Seasiders!
I'm having a housewarming party!
My skin is flawless! All are welcome.
Come on in, make yourself at home.
Bertie, our housewarming guests
are arriving!
Your housewarming guests, remember?
That's what I meant.
Look at my cool party!
We got a bunch of strangers,
a half a pizza crust,
and I got one cup!
Which you're borrowing from me!
This is great, Arlo.
I'm glad you're settling in.
To be honest,
I was a little worried about you.
It can be lonely
living on your own the first time.
Pssh! That little swamp baby is gone.
I'm grown now! I love being on my own.
Okay, tough guy.
I brought you a housewarming gift.
I have one too,
and it'd be cool
if we hung it on the wall we share.
- [Arlo sobbing]
- Uh, are you okay?
Yes. I love it. Thank you.
Wow. This place is cute.
Where's the music, honey?
You can't expect me not to dance!
[Tony] Ha-ha!
Way ahead of you.
I brought a family heirloom
and it ain't a tomato this time.
I just added some modern adjustments.
[upbeat dance music plays]
- [Tony laughs]
- [Alia] Ah.
Everyone, step aside, I know choreography.
Oh, yeah! Oh! Side to side! Oh!
[Arlo] Watch out!
- Move it!
- [Alia chuckles]
- Hey, yeah!
- Yeah!
- [Marcellus chuckles]
- [Arlo] Get it, girl.
- [dog barks]
- [Alia whooping]
- [Arlo] Yeah!
- [Bertie chuckles]
- [Arlo] Whoo-hoo!
- [both laugh]
Let's keep this party going forever!
[cheering, whooping]
[music continues playing]
[crickets chirping]
[music continues]
[thunder crashing]
[muffled music continues playing]
- [Bertie groans]
- [Arlo grunting]
- [Bertie] I don't feel good.
- [snoring]
[groaning weakly to the music]
[sighs weakly]
Ooph. That was really fun, you guys.
I think it's time I head home.
Wait! The party just started.
We've been dancing
for, like, three days straight, Arlo.
- I need to take a shower.
- I'm sleepy.
I'm leaving and I'm taking my cup.
But, guys, wait!
Don't be sad. It's not like
we'll never see each other again.
We're neighbors, remember?
I'll see you soon.
- Ugh, my head.
- You guys are weak.
- I could go for another three days.
- [meowing]
Well, I guess this place
has been officially house-warmed.
It doesn't feel any warmer.
I don't like this.
- [gentle music plays]
- [sobs]
[Arlo sobbing]
I guess I am still a dumb swamp baby.

Oh, Bertie, this is so great! Thank you.
[chuckling] I have to admit,
I do like an open floor plan.
You feeling better?
Feeling toasty!
This house is officially warmed!
- [doorbell rings]
- [woman] Delivery for Arlo Beauregard.
Uh, here. Take it.
- Whatever's in there does not seem happy.
- [rustling]
I don't get paid enough to do this.
Oh, it's a package from Edmee!
She promised me
she'd send me one every day!
I'm emotional.
It really stinks.
Uh, should I call Poison Control?
[rustling, squishing]
[gasps] What on earth is
My favoritest swamp-frog
in the whole world!
- [squishes]
- Ribbit!
- [gasps]
- Isn't he cute?
He was my best friend back at the swamp.
Now, we can all be housemates!
Imagine if he arrived just a day earlier.
Jeromio and I would have been roommates
and you'd still be
living in your own space.
Can you imagine that?
Yes, I can.
I really can.
