Been a little long. Starting to dry out.
Better get back to the fountain.

- [clattering, twanging]
[inhales, sobs]

[woman] This is too much emotion for me.
[tearfully] I have this song
tugging at my heartstrings
but no guitar strings and
no actual guitar to get it out with.

Oh, coin, please be true.
Bring me my wish,

Whoa, I didn't know
Marcellus' fountain was magic!
Now that I have my guitar ♪
I'll never be blue ♪
Hey, what's going on here?
I brought everyone
so they could make wishes.
I wish to make pizza faster

Gotta study for the driver's test.
I just wish birds would leave me alone.
- [seagull squawks]
- Hey!
- [gasping]
- [birds cooing]
If the fountain
keeps granting more wishes,
do you think that people might
want to reward it with sums of money?
- Of course.
- You know it ♪
A thousand percent.
[evil laugh]
[baby giggles]
[insincerely] No!
Come back with that baby.

What the What is this?
- There it is!
- A real magic fountain?
Is this that magic fountain
we heard about?
We got wishes that need fulfilling!
[cash register ding]
Ah! This is the fountain, all right.
What do you got?
I want my baby teeth to fall out
and my adult ones to grow in.
Ha-ha! Okay.
I want to make sure
my legs don't randomly fall off ever.
Wish already granted.
- I need a new walker, critically.
- [rattling]
The fountain can grant all these wishes
except that last one.
It doesn't want to do that last one ♪
- [old woman] Whoa!
- [clatters]
And now if there are any other wishes,
please don't hesitate
[Arlo] I have a wish.
[people gasp] Huh?
My dad told me to get myself
something nice with this.
But [grunts] I'd like to use it
to get him a birthday present.
My dad collects eggs.
So I wish for a rare condor egg,
like the one plopped on top
of that big building in the city.
- The pointy, tall one
- Huh?
- [groans]
- looks like a Christmas tree?
- [dramatic music plays]
- [thunder crashes]
- Hmm
- Think the fountain can do it for me?
I don't know.
That wish is pretty far from the fountain.
I'm not sure it has enough moisture
- to grant you your wish.
- Mm.
If the fountain can't grant his wish,
then I want my money back.
- [crowd clamoring]
- Mm-hmm. I'm taking my coin back!
And this one for interest!
No, no, no, no! Stop! Stop, okay!
The The fountain will grant Arlo's wish!
- It will?
- It will?
Don't you think the fountain
might be over-extending itself?
No way! The fountain is fine.
The fountain is granting Arlo's wish.

- [coins clinking]
I'm alive?
What kind of magic fountain
doesn't grant wishes?
[Bertie] I mean,
it wasn't the one granting wishes
[woman] a quarter, and nothing?
I want a dime
I was.
- [crowd clamoring]
- Huh?
- [twinkles]
- Oh.
So, magic fountains aren't real?
No, sweetie. Well, not this one at least.
- Thanks for ruining my dreams, lady!
- Come into my town and do all this
What is this? What're you doing?
I had a good thing going.
Marcellus, I had to intervene.
You were over-extending yourself.
You almost died.
What? [scoffs] I was fine.
How do you even know it was me?
- [muffled] Will not die ♪
- [gasps]
[sighing] Oh.
Just doing a favor for the guy
who did the whole neighborhood a favor.
[blows raspberry] Favor.
I did it for the cash.
I [scoffs] don't even care
if Arlo ended up getting the egg.
Don't worry.
I made sure his wish was granted.
He asked me
to give the fountain this in return!
Tell the kid
the fountain did this one for free.
You got it. [kisses]
[giggles] Stay hydrated, Marcellus.
Ew. I don't know what that was.
Who needs an incredibly valuable coin
when you're literally swimming in cash?
[gasps] Hey, where's my cash?
- [chirping]
- [seagull squawks]
[coins clinking]
As long as they're happy.
