When Madi and Heymondbeard compare things that they've found on the island, Cap'n Madi digs through her hat and finds an old, scary book.

Transcript[edit | edit source]
(The episode begins with Madi and Heymondbeard walking up to Spud onto the beach.)
Madi: Ha, ha, ha! What a scavenger hunt!
Heymondbeard: Hey, hey, hey, yeah, and when I found that Wishing Piece, I couldn't believe my eyes! What did you find, Captain?
(Madi shows Heymondbeard a bottle cap for grape sode.)
Madi: A bottle cap.
Heymondbeard: Hey, that's just old garbage.
Madi: But it's not garbage! It may be some priceless treasure.
Spud: Just show us what else you've got, you two!
(Madi shows Heymondbeard a sand dollar.)
(Heymondbeard shows Madi a literal sand dollar, as in a dollar made out of sand.)
Spud: By golly, I get the joke!
(Madi shows Heymondbeard a shell and puts it up to her ear.)
Madi: This shell makes a funny sound. Come listen for yourself.
(Madi puts the shell up to the viewer's ear, and the ocean is heard.)
Heymondbeard: Hey, my shell is lots better.
(Madi puts the shell down and looks at Heymondbeard, who has picked up a Shelmet.)
Shelmet: Shelmet! Shelmet, Shelmet!
Madi: Erm, your shell wants you to put it down.
(Heymondbeard sets Shelmet down. Afterward, Madi takes an old book out of her hat.)
Madi: Mmm, what's this.
(Madi looks at the book's cover.)
Madi: Scary Stories for Pokémon, by Spook E. Gastly.
Heymondbeard: Hey Madi, that probably isn't something you should be reading.
Madi: Why not? It looks good.
Spud: By golly, I thought you weren't all "Ha! Nothing scares Madi the Pirate! Ha-har, shiver my timbers!"
Madi: First of all, no, I'm not, Spud. Second of all, I'm quite a bookworm. Third of all, I've seen much worse, like a Talonflame eating a Wingull before.
(Madi opens the book and begins reading it.)
Heymondbeard: Hey, don't say we didn't warn you.
(Cut to a montage. Madi is seen reading the book in a tree, where two Aipom look over her shoulder and get scared by the book.)
(Cut to Madi reading the book in a cave.)
Madi: And then the spooky monster opened its mouth, wide enough to fit a whole cave!
(Several Noibat flee from the cave in fear.)
(Cut to Madi at Siltquake's pond, where Siltquake is shaking in fear.)
Siltquake: Great googly moogly! I'm scared!
Madi: Don't worry, it's not real!
(Cut to night time. Madi is finishing the book in her hammock.)
Madi: I finished it! Now to get some rest!
Spud: Oh, pshaw! By golly, you must've been so scared, that you skipped to the end of the book.
Madi: Me? Scared? Never! I read the whole thing in one sitting!
(Madi is shaking a little.)
Spud: Golly, I still think you got scared by the book.
Madi: It's just the jitters from eating too much candy! Well, good night, everybody!
Heymondbeard: Good night, guys!
(Everyone goes to sleep.)
Spud: Golly, I just know she's scared by it.
(Cut to Madi deep in the jungle.)
Madi: Safari Trekker Madi is going on a big search, fearless looking for an elusive, legendary creature!
(Something roars in the distance.)
Madi: Who said that?
(A giant beast resembling this monster towers over Madi.)
Beast: I am a scary beast!
Madi: You look like the monster from my book. Also, nothing scares Madi the Pirate! Ha-har, shiver my timbers!
Beast: I eat pirates for breakfast!
Madi: You eat pirates? (laughs sarcastically) I don't even taste that good!
(The beast grabs Madi by the tail.)
Beast: I'm being serious, little Luxio.
Madi: Oh dear. Don't eat me!
Beast: Too bad, Luxio. Down the hatch you go!
(The beast lets go of Madi and eats her.)
Madi: Help me!!
(Cut to Madi waking up and screaming.)
Madi: It's trying to eat me!
Heymondbeard: Madi! Madi!
(Madi is panicking and whimpering.)
Madi: This... scary monster...
Heymondbeard: Hey Madi, calm down. You were just having a nightmare.
Madi: It tried to eat me!
(Heymondbeard scoops up Madi and repeatedly shushes her.)
Madi: You were right! This book was scary!
Heymondbeard: Hey Captain, how about you sleep with me tonight?
Madi: I guess.
(Heymondbeard carries Madi, who has fallen asleep, to his hammock.)
Heymondbeard: Good night, Madi.
Madi: I'll try not to be a burden again for the rest of the night. Also, can you scratch me ears?
(Heymondbeard scratches Madi's ears; Madi sighs in relief.)
(Fade to the next morning. Madi is sleeping on top of Heymondbeard, much to the latter's dismay.)
