Hey-hey! Hi, Ernie! Where's Sam?
< In here!
Oh, in there!
Hi, Jack. Hi, Salty! I'm doing a job.
I'm trying to put a light in this cupboard.
-It's a bit dark, isn't it, Sam? You need a...
-No, no. You need a...
No! You need a torch so you can see what you're doing!
That's what I'm trying to find!
There must be one here somewhere!
Don't worry, Salty has beaten you to it!
What a clever girl you are! Thank you.
Thanks, Salty! This is really going to help.
The thing is, Jack, I need two hands to do the job,
but one of my hands is holding the torch.
What am I going to do?
I've got the answer.
I'll hold the torch while you do the job!
Well, come on in, then.
-Uh, I can't.
Because you're in the way.
Ha-ha! Try now.
Ernie, I can't see anything at all!
You and the torch are out there.
Listen, I think I have something back at the Rainbow
-that could solve this problem.
Thank you, Jack.
Come on, Salty, we'll go and find it.
-See you later, Jack!
There she is, the Rainbow!
Well, what have you got for us today, my dear?
Heh-heh! Come on, Salty!
Here we are.
That's it, good girl, Salty.
You settle down, I'll find that miner's helmet.
Oh! Here we are.
Yes, you see? This is a light you can wear on your head, see?
Look, no hands!
It's good, isn't it?
You know what this reminds me of, Salty, don't you?
That's right, Angela the anglerfish. Do you remember?
Down at the Rock Sea Palace?
She'd got a light on her head, as well.
Let me get comfortable and I'll tell you the story.
Once upon a twinkly time, the Rainbow set off from Staithes,
waved goodbye to Whitby and disappeared over the horizon.
The sun was shining in the sky
and the sea was so calm, you could see the fish as they swam about.
# Just Salty Dog and me
# Upon the briny sea
# The sea is calm, the sun is high
# We can see the fishes swimming by
# We'll call out "Hello!" as they swim down below
# Just Salty Dog and me. #
And then, as we were looking out over the waves,
we saw a little light under the water,
shining as brightly as the sun.
"Ha-ha!" I said to Salty.
"That will be Angela the anglerfish on her way to work."
I called to her, "What film's showing this week, Angela?"
You see, Angela the anglerfish
worked at the Rock Sea Palace cinema.
Every now and then, Salty and I like to go there to watch a film.
"It's a musical," Angela called back.
Well, Salty loves musicals,
so before you could say 'capering cuttlefish',
we dived under the glistening, rippling waves
and we walked Angela to work.
Soon, we were outside.
There were columns encrusted with
and a towering sign above the door
with light bulbs of every colour
flashing and winking round the edge.
Its giant lit-up letters read 'The Sound of Whale Music'.
"Looks good," I said to Salty, so we bought our tickets for the film.
The lights were low and the cinema was very dark.
"Follow me," said Angela, and she shone her little headlight
so we could see the way to our seats.
Then the screen lit up
and we watched a whale sing and dance his way through the film.
He was tapping and twirling and, "Do-whop, de-doo-whop, de-doo!"
Salty didn't take her eyes off the screen.
At the end of the film, the big boss fish,
who was in charge of everything,
stood up and made a special announcement.
"If you think you have what it takes to be a star," he said,
"please enter our special talent contest here tomorrow night."
A talent contest! Well, whoo-hoo!
Everybody was very excited about this
and we were all chatting about it as we filed out of the door.
Then, suddenly, Salty woofed and pointed at my head.
"I've forgotten my hat!" I said,
and we both hurried back into the cinema.
When we got inside, we couldn't see a thing,
except for a small pool of light right down at the very front.
"It's Angela," I whispered to Salty, "and she's singing!"
Her voice sounded as pure as a mountain stream
and with her little light, she lit up the stage like a star.
Salty and I watched spellbound, and then we clapped. "Hurray!"
Angela blinked into the darkness.
"Jack? Salty? Oh, no! You didn't watch me, did you?"
"Yes, you were wonderful!" I told her.
"You should enter that talent contest tomorrow."
But Angela said, "I'm too shy.
"I can only do it if there's no-one looking."
Well, Salty and I tried and tried to convince her to enter the contest
until she said, "Do you really think I could do it?"
"Of course!" we said to her. And so, Angela agreed.
Well, the next day, everyone packed
into the Rock Sea Palace
to see the contest.
"My tummy feels funny," Angela said.
Suddenly, there was a wave of applause
as the big, red, velvety curtain raised up
and the first contestant took to the stage.
It was Percy, playing his beautiful pipe.
Next came Charlie the squid, doing some jiggly-juggling. Ha-ha!
After him came Sam the seahorse, dancing a beautiful ballet.
Finally, it was Angela's turn.
"Put your hands together for Angela the anglerfish!"
announced the big boss fish.
There was a roar of applause. "Hurray!"
And then the clapping stopped
and the Rock Sea Palace was quiet and waiting.
And really waiting.
"Where's Angela?" I whispered to Salty. "She should be on stage."
Salty and I fond her quivering in a corner.
"I can't do it," she whispered to Salty and me.
"But everyone is waiting," I said.
Mrs Cod, sitting in the front row, coughed. "Ah-hem!"
"There are so many of them out there," Angela said,
as the little light above her head began to flicker and fade.
"And they're all looking at me!"
Salty's whiskers started whiffling.
She was having one of her bright ideas!
She dashed off towards the light switch
and turned all the lights off.
"Good thinking, Salty, old girl," I said.
"If the lights are off, Angela won't see everyone watching."
Well, the Rock Sea Palace
was completely dark
except for the light dangling above Angela's head.
"Now's your chance," I said to her.
"It will be as if nobody is watching. Good luck."
Angela looked out and she blinked and hesitated for a moment,
then slowly took her place on the stage.
She took a big breath and she began to sing.
When Angela had finished, the crowd erupted.
Salty turned on the lights
and Angela saw everyone leaping up and down
and clapping and cheering and,
"Whoopee!" and hooraying!
Salty, she got sore paws from clapping so much!
"I did it," said Angela, her light beaming brightly.
Then the big boss fish stood up and said, "And the winner is..."
"Please say it's Angela," I whispered to Salty.
"Charlie Squid and his jiggly-juggling!"
"Oh, poor Angela," I said,
as everyone cheered and watched Charlie get his prize.
"I'm so sorry you didn't win," I said,
but Angela didn't mind a bit!
She had managed to sing in front of all those people, all watching her.
"I never thought I could do it," she said happily.
"That was the best moment of my life!"
As Salty Dog and I made our way back to the Rainbow
and started up the engine,
we saw some stars shining in the sky.
"None of them are shining as brightly as Angela," I said to Salty
and we headed across the ocean, bound for Staithes and home.
Right, there you are.
-Give me the tools, Sam!
I'll finish the job.
-Go on, then.
-Now Ernie can see what he's doing at last!
-But is he doing the right things?
-Let's take a look.
Well done, Ernie!
Sam, will you do the honours?
ALL: Three, two, one!
Yes, well, I'll leave the helmet with you,
because I've got an idea you might need it for a bit longer.
-I'll see you later. Come on, Salty.
Bye-bye! All right, come on.
Well, Salty, that's it for today.
We'll see all our friends again next time.
Oh, and we'll see you next time, as well. Bye-bye!
Come on, girl.
