Is it clearing?
Surf's way up, dude!
Second Mate Brain, where are we?
There's no way to tell without the sun.
Any sign of the sun from up there?
Ship's Surgeon Francine, you should be below decks!
-I found him in my quarters, sir!
He had this. Do you know what this means, Captain?
It means he's really hungry.
We're close to land!
Land? But where?
ALL: Whoa! Huh!
All right! Our very own island!
Woo - yeah!
Only seven more days to summer vacation.
And Ratburn promised no more pop quizzes for the rest of the year!
That's because he's saving up for the big end of year assignment.
But...but haven't we suffered enough?
Ms Sweetwater's class is already cleaning out their desks and planning a party.
He does it every year. Why should this year be any different?
Lets see, I've given you the word problems for tomorrow,
the sentences to diagram, and the reading
but this is the end of the year.
It's time for something extra.
Oh, no! Here he comes!
Please take out your notebooks and write down your end of year assignment.
Imagine that all of you are stranded on a desert island.
Each of you may choose an unlimited supply of one food to bring with you.
What would you choose?
It's a no-brainer!
If I was stuck on an island I'd bring potato chips.
I'd bring that new cereal, Kotton Kandy Krunch. What about you, Buster?
Desert island... Uh!
One food only...
Maybe chocolate would be better.
Or maybe mayonnaise, straight out of the jar.
Buster, pass me the ball.
I don't know which food I like best.
Aww! This is so much harder than I thought.
Is something wrong?
This assignment is much too simple.
I don't understand it.
Maybe you should enjoy that it's easy.
But Mr Ratburn never gives easy assignments.
This wasn't easy but after thinking about it a lot, and I mean a lot,
I finally decided on ice cream.
THEY ALL MUTTER
You did choose a dairy product.
So, you'd be getting calcium but not enough vitamins, fibre or protein.
I knew I should have gone with marshmallows.
Francine, how about you?
I would bring an unlimited supply of barbecue potato chips.
Mmm, let's think about all those spicy, powdery, very very salty potato chips.
And you, Arthur? How long can anyone survive on sugar and yellow dye?
True, you'd be getting carbohydrates but far too much sugar and too little protein.
Alan, what did you come up with?
I don't have the answer.
THEY ALL GASP
At the moment nobody does.
None of you would have survived for very long on the island.
What if I switched to jelly beans?
Your choices have to sustain you. Help could be a long time coming.
I think I like the quizzes better.
I want you all to try again.
THEY ALL GROAN
Remember, each of you may bring only one food
but your overall goal is to survive for as long as you can.
You have the weekend to come up with the solution.
I knew it was too simple.
He didn't even give an answer.
Mmm! I still think I could survive on this.
I didn't settle for the wrong one.
This time I'll sift through all the data.
I was hoping for a weekend without homework.
Somewhere out there's the perfect food and I'm going to find it.
Hey, Brain, are you in there?
Come on, we're riding to the park.
I can't. I'm still looking for the perfect food.
-Did you guys give up?
-No, we're done.
Look, we'll help you. The answer's obvious once you think about it.
Last time, we all picked fun food.
There's no way we could get away with that.
See, we picked food that we like to eat,
but the trick is to pick a food that we're supposed to eat.
Stuff like this... Whole grains.
-In other words, oatmeal.
Plain oatmeal. It's so healthy that it's probably worth extra credit.
And I'm going with vegetables. Probably Brussels sprouts. Get it?
-I don't know.
-Oh, come on - it's perfect.
I bet Brussels sprouts are Ratburn's favourite food.
According to this, they do contain several vitamins
-as well as being high in fibre and water.
-I rest my case.
But there's no protein!
My dad told me eggs are great protein,
so I'm bringing ten hard-boiled eggs.
Fine, but you can't survive that long on eggs alone.
I'm looking for a single, perfect food that has everything.
-Maybe there isn't one.
-But there has to be!
You just can't admit that we found a solution before you.
Your solutions are incomplete.
You're making this harder than it is. Let's go to the park.
..One perfect food...
May I help you?
Where would I find one food that has it all?
Some protein, a little fat, carbohydrates,
vitamins, minerals and fibre.
I'm afraid I can't help you with that.
Argh! This assignment is impossible!
That's it! It IS impossible.
Why didn't I think of it earlier?
-'So what do you say?'
-I know, but there's no other way.
-Count me in.
-And we'll need Buster, and Francine, too.
While each of could survive for some time on a single food
-from one of the food groups...
-Research led us to the conclusion
that it would be impossible to survive for very long
-without combining our food choices.
-So...you decided to form a group.
Otherwise, it's impossible.
-I never directed you to work together.
-You never said we couldn't.
-Arthur brought something from the protein group.
We also needed vegetables so I brought a salad with olive oil.
Which takes care of our fat. And I brought fruit.
And I brought some bread rolls and cheese, and lots of water.
So that takes care of our dairy and grains.
The assignment said that the overall goal was to survive.
You just can't make it on only one kind of food.
You have to have grains, fruits and vegetables,
dairy, protein and healthy fats.
Well done! You've made a perfect presentation.
You need a selection from each of the major food groups.
-You forgot one thing.
-I knew we forgot something!
- Does this mean we've failed? - A desert island dessert.
There's nothing wrong with a desert island treat now and then.
After this, I've challenged Mrs Sweetwater's class
to a game of Capture The Flag.
# Every day you walk down the street Everybody that you meet
# Has an original point of view
-# And I say, hey!
-# What a wonderful kind of day
When Mr Ratburn challenges the class to choose one food for surviving on a desert island, everyone picks potato chips or ice cream. Arthur and the gang discover that they cannot survive on junk food alone, and by working together and studying the food groups, they learn about the importance of a balanced diet.
