Dora: Hi, I'm Dora.

Boots: And I'm Boots.

Dora: We're at the beach. We're looking for sea shells. Do you see any sea shells? Where?

(Cursor clicks them)

Boots: Yeah, sea shells.

(Dora puts the shell into her ear)

Dora: This one makes a funny sound. Listen.

Boots: I hear it, I hear it. I wanna find a starfish.

Dora: Do you see a starfish? Where?

(Cursor clicks it)

Boots: Yeah! (hooting) Starfish, starfish. Look, Dora, It's shaped like a star.

[Suddenly they hear someone crying]

Dora: Boots, did you hear that?

Boots: It sounds like a baby, and he's crying.

(They rushed up and found a little red fish)

Dora: Oh, look. It's a baby red fish.

Boots: Why isn't he in the ocean, Dora?

Dora: Yeah, baby red fish, you should be in the ocean, not on the beach.

Baby Red Fish: (sadly) I know. I swam so far from home and then this big wave came and-and-and, I've gotta get home. I've gotta get home. Mommy? Daddy? My sisters? My brothers.

Both: Aw!

Dora: Poor fishy, he misses his family.

Boots: Don't worry. We'll help you find your family.

Baby Red Fish: You will? Oh, thank you. Thank you! (kisses Dora and Boots)

(Baby Red Fish giggling)

Boots: Come here, fishy. I'll carry you.

Baby Red Fish: (in fear) Wait, wait, wait. I need water, I need water! (Boots lets go of him)

Boots: Oh, sorry. Dora, he needs water. How are we gonna carry him home?!

Dora: I bet I have something in my backpack that we can fill with water to carry the fish. I need your help. Will you check my Backpack for something we can fill with water? You have to say "Backpack".

Val: Fantastico! Muy bien! But first, we have to close our submarine snug and tight.

(closes the submarine)

Baby Red Fish: Are we ready to go?!

Val: Almost. We're going down to the bottom of the ocean. That's very deep! Now, we'll have to start our eight deep water engines. Count with me!

Boots: Whoo! Hooray!

Dora: We did it!

(song ends) (cursor clicks)

Boots: My favorite part was when we all yelled "Abre" and the very big green fish opened his mouth.

Dora: My favorite part was when we climbed like a crab up the King Crab's net. We couldn't have gotten Baby Red Fish home without you. Thanks for helping!
