- Thank you.

- [seagulls squawk]
A perfect fishing trip
with me and my dad.
I got my fishing banjo, fishing pole,
and now my fishing lunch.
It's tuna.
I don't love the concept of fishing,
but I decided to be
thematically appropriate.
[in sing-song] I love that!
I wonder if we'll fish and then sing.
Maybe we'll teach the fish to sing. Hmm
- Want to hear the song I wrote for Dad?
- Mm-hmm.
[clears throat]
Got to tune her up.
[continues tuning]
[spraycan hissing]
[continues tuning]
[strums chord] There. Ready?
- [snores]
- Berts!
[gasps] I love it!
Perfect song for a perfect day with Dad.
- [ship horn blares]
- [cruise music playing]
- [Ansel] Ahoy!
- [Bertie] Whoa!
This is a little much.
[shouting] Arlo! Are you ready
for our grand nautical adventure?
Am I ever! Just throw me a rope,
and I'll climb aboard!
Nonsense! You're coming up in style!
- Bye, Bertie!
- [chuckles]
[Ansel] And we're off!
Goodbye, Arlo's friend!
Um, we've actually met before? Mm.
Bon voyage!
Oh, boy.
So much for a simple fishing trip.
You You can say that again, sister!
Did you run all the way over here
just to be snarky?
Want me to make you a tuna sandwich?
What does it mean for me if I say yes?
[relaxing tropical music plays]
We're going pretty fast!
Never fished in anything
as big as the ocean,
but my trusty swamp pole can handle it.
Your what? Oh, no, no, no.
- We won't be needing that today.
- But why?
I thought we were fishing today.
We are. I mean, technically we aren't.
I hired two surrogates
to fish for us over there. See?
Is this fun for you, son?
It is, Father.
I love you.
- Hmm.
- Huh.
Weird. It's like
a different time of day over there.
Anyway, I figured
let them do the simple stuff
because what I have planned is going
to completely blow it out of the water.
Look at me making dad jokes.
As you can see, we have a full crew today.
The ship is completely equipped.
Okay. This fishing trip
is a lot more crowded than I expected.
[sailors vocalizing]
- Welcome, welcome ♪
- Ooh!
We welcome you to our boat
A travers de mar on this floating car ♪
Bilingual, not to gloat ♪
[grunts, groans]
[gasps] I'm so sorry, Bruce!
I missed my cue again!
Way to go, Ben.
Yeah, way to mess up again.
He was our center visual.
- Dad?
- I am so sorry, buddy.
I promise the rest of the trip
will be perfect.
[both] Sweep, sweep, sweep.
I think this next bit
will help you repress that.
As you can see,
I've even installed the latest
in sonar and tracking technology
to ensure that we seek out
only the most thrilling
and rare of sea life encounters.
Wow! Okay, that looks very impressive?
Thank you.
[beeping, warbling]
Hey, hey, that's not a bad beat.
[vocalizing] Boo-boo-boo ♪
It'll go great
with the fishing song I wrote for us.
Want to hear it?
- [twangs]
- Uh-oh. Um, hold on just a sec.
Okay, here it goes.
What could be ♪
[alarm blaring]
[tuning] It'll be worth it, I promise.
[voice breaking] Uh, Captain!
We've spotted a school of narwhals
just 30 klicks northwest!
- Narwhals? That's not in the lyrics.
- Narwhals? Excellent!
It's time, crew! Gear us up!
- [sailors] Gear up, gear up ♪
- Ah!
Let's get you to the fish ♪
- Don't worry, everyone. I'm okay.
- Tra-la-la! ♪
Fishing, coral, ocean, voila! ♪
Hey! I need that!
[straining] Oh!
Excuse me.
[muffled grunt]
[muffled protests]
- [whirring]
- Oh!
[laughs] Huzzah.
- [yelps]
- [dramatic music plays]
This wasn't the kind of fishing
I had in mind!
- [splashes]
- [music intensifies]
Dad? Dad!
What? I can't hear you.
I think the sound thing is broken.
[narwhals singing]
[adventurous music plays]
[narwhal clicking]
That's what a narwhal is?
[narwhals singing and clicking]
- They're coming right to us!
- They're coming right for us! [yelps]
Excellent idea, son.
- [music intensifies]
- [screams]
All right. Yes.
Son! Isn't this amazing?
Good for you.
You're getting right in there.
- [laughs]
- Hey, Dad!
Wait! Wait for Ooph!
[ominous music playing]
Dad! Dad!
[Ansel faintly] Wow! That's great.
[weakly] What could be better
Than to be in the blue? ♪
In the blue with you ♪
[upbeat music plays]
Arlo! Decided to stay down there
a little longer, huh?
It was amazing. Huh?
Ah! [winces]
Is it just me or does he look
the opposite of thrilled?
[groans softly]
He looks like a Save Our Swamps poster.
Those are the saddest.
Were narwhals not enough?
They're not for everyone, sir.
They are the best money can buy!
- [ethereal twinkling]
- Nature's unicorns.
- Those are also not for everyone, sir.
- [gasps]
- You shut your mouth ♪
- It's the truth ♪
This isn't Broadway.
Please leave me and my son alone.
Arlo, my son.
I don't know. Um
Should I [clears throat]
take you home?
Sure. If that's what you want.
[sputters] If that's what
That's what I [groans]
You listen here, young alligator.
All I wanted was to impress you.
We saw narwhals, Arlo!
The unicorns of the sea!
I would've been thrilled as a boy.
Were you not thrilled?
Well, it wasn't really a fishing trip.
False. It was the most fishing trip.
No, Dad.
The narwhals and the sonar,
that's all very impressive.
But what I really wanted
was to spend time with you.
Really? That's
That's enough?
Yes! You, me, some sammiches,
the sea
That's the perfect day to me.
Well, the day isn't over yet.
Did you say you were working on a song?
[gasps] Really?
- [bell tolling]
- [drones whirring]
[hopeful music builds]
Bye, drones! Thank you for your service.
Uh [chuckles nervously]
This thing is safe, right?
- Whoo!
- [chuckles]
Fear not. I know little boats
as well as I know my very own tail.
Very good.
[banjo twangs]
[tuning] Hold on, just real quick.
[continues tuning]
- Maybe we don't need the banjo.
- You sure?
There's music all around us.

No, thanks. I like a little mystery.
