[Rebecca] I'm sorry.
Your pickled liverwurst isn't here yet.
The plane is late.
I'm sorry, sir.
That flight hasn't arrived.
Higher For Hire?
I'm sorry. We're running a little late.
- OK. A lot late.
- [angry voices]
Baloo! Where are you?
[Molly imitates plane]
Coming in for a landing.
Third night in a row
waiting up for that bear.
I've got to get some sleep.
Poor Mom.
I know. Tonight I'll fix my own dinner.
No. No, pumpkin. That's OK.
I'll make you dinner soon as that Baloo
- shows up with the cargo.
- [phone rings]
Higher For Hire?
Sorry. Your cargo's not here yet.
'Cause my pilot's about to have
a horrible accident, that's why.
If Baloo is where I think he is,
he's gonna wish he weren't.
Operator? Get me Louie's.
[Latin music]
[phone rings]
Uh-huh? "Where's the hullabaloo?"
Oh, that Baloo!
Nope. Sorry, lady. Can't see him.
[Baloo laughs] Oh, baby! Whoa!
[Louie] Go, man, go!
Mind if I cut in?
Man! Your boat has a basement?
Oh. It ain't my boat, cuz.
This wreck came with the island.
I just built my place around it.
Well, now Looky here.
[chuckles] Dig these crazy threads.
[laughs] Louie, it's you-ie!
- Swab the poop deck.
- Scuttle that scuttlebutt.
I think we better get outta here.
Man, like I'm already gone.
[Baloo yells]
- [Baloo] Run for your lives!
- [Louie] We are host to a ghost!
[all laugh]
[all yell]
[Louie] Momma!
- [Rebecca sighs]
- [phone rings]
Mom can't talk now.
She's trying to take a nap.
- Thanks.
- [approaching engine]
Hello? Your cargo's just arrived.
Call you back.
Just wait and hear
what dumb excuse he has this time.
Hi, Baloo. We're waiting to hear
what dumb excuse you got this time.
A g-g-ghost! At Louie's!
Pretty dumb all right.
You lowlife excuse for a pilot.
When you said Molly
had eaten your maps, that was cute.
When you said a big hurricane
blew your plane to Louie's,
that was mildly amusing.
But this is stupid.
But, Becky, we really saw a ghost.
Just unload that cargo.
The customers are restless.
Cargo? Oh Yeah.
- In all the er
- Running for our lives.
Yeah. Running for our lives, I
sorta left the cargo at Louie's.
Then just go back and get it.
Back there? No way.
That hash house is haunted.
[stutters] Come see for yourself.
And if there's no ghost, I'll
quit my job.
If there's no ghost,
you won't have a job to quit.
- Becky
- What?!
[gulps] We're here.
Let's get this over with.
See? There's the proof.
Proof that you two are slobs.
No, no. It was the ghost.
Look. Come on, man,
make with the boogie-de-boo.
Fly! Come on, fly!
Naaa! Yee-ha!
Oh. Enough.
Some people have sleep to get, like me.
Some people have cargo
to deliver, like you.
[yells] Did you see that?
I've just about lost my patience
with you two idiotic, immature
Aha! Ghost, huh?
I've been framed.
Possession is nine-tenths of guilt.
Let's go, Baloo.
Aw. But who's gonna help me
get rid of that kooky spook?
It scared off my customers.
No customers, no bucks.
No bucks, no Louie's.
No Louie's, no parties.
Great. If a ghost could close down
this dump, I'd give him a kiss.
[Baloo] Whoa!
[Rebecca yells]
Allow me to assist you, madam.
Are these ruffians presenting a problem?
Uh No.
I think the situation's under control.
Um Thank you.
The pleasure is mine, madam.
Captain William Stansbury.
At your service.
Well, now Who's the stiff?
You don't see many of them
around here, Baloo.
They're called "gentlemen".
No. They're called "customers".
You don't see
many of them around either.
Welcome to Louie's, mon capitaine.
Let me show you the best table
in the house.
I beg your pardon?
You call this an eating establishment?
Looks to me like you've ruined
a perfectly good sailing ship.
- Madam, if this were my ship, I'd
- Have them flogged?
[laughs] Well said, madam.
Hang 'em from the yardarm.
It'd take two yardarms for Baloo.
I see what you mean.
Why doesn't she take a long walk
off a short pier?
- You'll apologize to the lady, sir.
- Show me a lady and I will.
[both laugh]
OK, OK. I'm sorry.
Why, thank you.
My duty, madam, and my pleasure.
[Louie] Oh, my stomach
Well [giggles]
I've lost all track of time.
Come on, Baloo, we have to get going.
Might I escort my lady out?
I thought you'd never ask.
Must you leave?
I wish I could stay, but
I've got a shipping company to run.
Indeed? I am impressed.
Check it out, man.
Old barnacle breath is putting
the whammy on Beck-o-ramy.
And old Baloo's gonna nip it in the bud.
Hey! What gives?
Uh-oh. It looks like
we're in for an encore.
Becky, come back! It's the ghost!
[Captain] Incredible, madam.
A miracle of engineering.
[giggles] You act like
you've never seen an airplane before.
I've been a bit out of touch lately.
And this ship of the air is yours?
Madam, you amaze me.
Where I came from women sew and cook
and take care of the little ones.
There's that too.
But you
I've never met anyone like you.
I was about to say
the same thing about you.
Excuse me, Captain. Gotta wring out
my pilot so we can head home.
Must you really leave?
Yes. I have to get back.
My daughter. I
left her with the babysitter. Um
Cargo or no, we gotta go!
I don't believe it. Generator's out.
Batteries. Hydraulics.
From the rudder to the fuzzy dice,
this whole plane is dead.
We can't get outta here.
It's like someone wants us to stay.
Yeah. Or some thing.
[Louie] Try the fuzzy dice again, man.
Oh, don't give me that garbage again.
There aren't any ghosts around here.
Just you two dummies,
me and the Capt Captain?
What's going on here?
It's like he just disappeared.
If you can't fix this rust bucket
till morning,
at least I'm gonna get some sleep.
You want us to sleep
in that haunted house?
Well, you can't sleep in here.
Your snoring could wake the dead.
Oh, have a little heart.
Have a little backbone.
What does she think we are? Scared?
[sighs] Louie, old pal she's right.
- All right. Whose island is this?
- Yeah!
We gonna let
some buggedy-face push us around?
- Yeah! I mean, no.
- Come on.
[both] Look out, spooks!
Ta-da! Whoo!
- [banging]
- [crashing]
[yawns] I gotta get some sleep.
[Captain] Rebecca.
Now what? Captain?
Forgive me if I alarmed you.
I couldn't sleep.
Nor could I.
- Well, perhaps you would like to
- I'd love to.
Whoo! [cackles]
[both make ghostly noises]
[both scream]
Cool it, coz. It's me.
Listen. You hear that?
I don't hear anything.
That's what I mean. We scared him off.
You think so?
[both whistle]
Booga booga!
Success, my man.
No ghost is gonna make us look stupid.
[both scream]
Yeah. We got ourselves to do that.
[Louie, muffled]
Hey! Hey, fuzzy! Let me out, man!
It's jammed!
[Rebecca laughs] Did you see
the expression on their faces
when you threatened
to hang them from the yardarm?
And when you suggested flogging?
I don't know how
you put up with those scoundrels.
Well, they're sort of my friends.
Ah, my apologies.
- Or my condolences.
- You've got that right.
They wouldn't know a gentleman
if one came up and
put a flower in my hair.
Nor would they know a real lady
If one came up and kissed them.
Oh. This must be a dream.
If only I had a forevermore to spend
like this and someone to share it with.
Your dream could come true, my lady
if you wanted it to.
Perhaps another time, my lady.
What's the matter, my man?
You look like you've seen a ghost.
[stutters] I It's him.
Him? Whom? Where-m?
[stutters] The ghost.
This ship was his.
He crashed in a storm
a hundred years ago.
It's in the dude's diary.
Oh, how could you read a diary
in the dark?
- That's how.
- Oh, no.
Becky's boyfriend is a ghost.
What are we gonna do, Baloo?
We're gonna come up with a plan
to catch a ghost.
No! Rebecca!
Go ahead. Skewer me all you want.
I am not letting any ghost take my boss.
Yeah. Skewer him all you want,
Captain Blight.
I'm taking Rebecca with me.
Oh, yeah, spooky?
I'd like to see you try.
[sighs] Oh! What a marvelous dream.
I told you your dreams could come true.
- Look, my lady.
- Make a wish?
I wish for you to stay with me, Rebecca.
The skies are ours to sail,
anywhere your heart desires,
for the rest of time.
- Oh!
- [clicks fingers]
Now, wait a minute
- Rebecca!
- Yes, Baloo?
I hate to bust up the party,
Becky, but
your boyfriend here is a ghost.
Well, sure.
Anything's possible in a dream.
- Isn't it?
- Of course.
I gotta bust free of this crazy KP.
Hey, pal, you OK?
Oh, baby. I'm much more than OK.
"Magic Spells of the Sea?"
Our ticket outta here.
Let me see Ghosts, mermaids,
scurvy, squids Here it is.
A spell to un-whammify ghost ships.
Now we'll flush old flan-face.
[Louie coughs]
"Flounders and flying fish
Scrubbedy dub
Drop to the deck of this rotten old tub"
Thank you.
Don't mention it, my good man.
You're on, good buddy.
"Mermaids and herrings
and ancient boat slips
- Take to the heavens"
- No, don't!
- What are you doing?
- Getting rid of Captain Casanova.
- And getting us home.
- [creaking]
Isn't it enough you guys ruin my life?
Do you have to ruin my dreams too?
Becky, wake up.
This isn't a dream. It's real.
- This is real.
- Quick, finish the spell.
No, stay with me.
You've got to come back with us.
Stop, please!
I want to stay. I just want to be happy.
Becky, I want you to be happy too,
but you gotta think, honey.
Think of your life, think of Molly.
Oh, I can't stay.
You've given me a dream forever,
but I
My daughter. I have to go back.
I understand, Rebecca.
"Take to the heavens
Illusionary ships
Forever and always to sail the skies
Now part from this world
on wings to arrive"
Rebecca, goodbye.
[Rebecca] No. Don't go.
I'll wait for you, Rebecca.
Perhaps some day
Oh, I missed you, Mommy.
Where were you?
- Mommy had a date with a ghost.
- [giggles] Sure, Mom.
Hey, who's that guy?
Well I'll tell you a story, Molly.
A long time ago,
there was a sea captain.
He was very brave
and very, very handsome.
With his lady at his side,
he sailed on a magical ship
