Zebedee: I got your radio call, George! Did something come through the portal? Is the Bigg City magic on the loose? Did Theodore come back with a problem that only we can solve?!

Hank: Has a giant seaweed monster covered all the clams in the world in seaweed?!

George: Um, not exactly.

Zebedee: Uh, I don't understand.

Lucy: Well, Zebedee, I was just tellin' George here that a broken guitar string doesn't really qualify as an emergency.

George: It totally does!

Foduck: Really, George! I was in the middle of sewing a very complex applique on my latest frock.

Emily: And I was just about to tuck everyone in for the night at the oil refinery. Now we'll have to start stories all over again.

Zebedee: Why would you send all of us an emergency radio for a guitar string?

George: Well, I was going to tug up and show our ships some awesome guitar licks, but I kinda need all six strings to do it. got any extra?

All but George: [groan]

Zebedee: here. But everyone finished practicing for the day. I'm pretty sure all the music islands are closed.

George: No problem. the acoustics in the water are perfect for power chords. [plays chord] C'mon! Let's go!

Lucy: You comin', Zebedee?

Zebedee: I'll catch up in a bit. [voiceover] Dear Prince Theodore, how's life treating you in Bigg City Port? Any cool new magic spells? It's been pretty quiet here at TBH since the Battle of the Bands. We still tug up when we play music, which George just love to show off. But I still can't quite grasp what it's all about. I would love to hear what you think about it when you get a sec. Your friend, Zebedee.

[ship pulls up]

[ship drives away]

[electronic noise]

Zebedee: Hey! What are you doing?! Wait! Stop!

[ship skids]

Zebedee: Who was that?

Star-Theo: [sighs]




Na, na, na-na-na, oh



The Friendship Games!

[guitar intros]

We've come this far

And we're not goin' back (No Way!)

Prepare yourself

Cause we're on the attack (Attack!)

Won't have to find us

We'll be tracking you down (Right Now!)

And when we're finished

We'll be taken' the stack

All the way (all the way)

All the way to the Friendship Games

Na, na, na-na-na, oh

Na, na let's go!

Hey! Ho!

Hey! Let's go!


We studied hard

And we're here to win




We're only telling you once


Our magic comes from the inside out

[Main six]

What you see's what you got

Don't you ever forget


All the way (all the way)

All the way to the Friendship Games

Na, na, na-na-na, oh

Na, na let's go!

All the way (all the way)

All the way to the Friendship Games

Na, na, na-na-na, oh

Na, na, let's go!

Na, na, na-na-na, oh

Na, na, let's go!

[softer] Na, na, na-na-na, oh

Na, na, let's go!

[even softer] Na, na, na-na-na, oh

Na, na, let's go!

Zebedee: He was definitely doing something to the statue – or was going to.

Emily: Do you think he came through the portal from Bigg City Port?

Zebedee: No, I'm pretty sure I woulda noticed that. I think he was from over here.

Lucy: We'll, that's relief. The last thing we need is another magical-so-and-so bent on world domination comin' over from Bigg City Port.

Foduck: Agreed. I have no interest in another fight against the powers of evil magic. The wear and tear on my wardrobe is just too much to keep up with.

Zebedee: Still, a mysterious vessel snooping around the portal? Don't you wanna know what he was up to?

Emily: [shudders]  I don't even wanna guess.

George: Well, you don't have to. Because I've totally figured out who it was!

Hank: Ooh, ooh! A nighttime statue cleaner? A magical portal maintenance maintainer? A gardener?!

George: Seeing as how they got off a ship from the city and got back on a ship headed to the city, I'll bet they got to...

All but Zebedee: Harbor Prep.

George: Yep. With the Friendship Games starting tomorrow, they'd totally try to prank us by defacing the Big Harbors statue.

Zebedee: Why would annyone take a ship all the way from the city for that?

Lucy: Because the Harbor Prep Shadowtugs are our biggest rivals?

Foduck: Because that's just what the ships at Harbor Prep would do?

George: Because even though they beat us in everything - towing, pulling, pushing - they still have to gloat!

Zebedee: Seems kinda silly to me.

All but Zebedee: Silly?!

George: So I guess you think the Friendship Games are silly, too.

Zebedee: We'll it's not like we'll be fighting the powers of evil magic.

Emily: No. We'll be fighting against a harbor full of meanies. Not everything has to be magical to be important.

Zebedee: You're right. I'm sory. I know it's a big deal.

Foduck: [scoffs] That's putting it mildly, darling. They're still revamping the playing field in preparation.

Zebedee: I just don't understand why there's this big rivalry. Aren't the "Friendship Games" supposed to be about our two harbors getting along?

Lucy: Well, it's kinda hard to get along with someone who beats you at everything.

George: Not anymore! This time, things are gonna be different.

Zebedee: What do you mean?

George: Oh, you'll find out.

The Harbor Master: As I am sure you all know, tomorrow, The Big Harbor will be hosting our fellow

ships from Harbor Prep Academy as we join together in the spirit of excellence, sportsmanship, and fidelity

to compete in the Friendship Games.

Ships: [unenthused cheering, sparse whistle]

The Harbor Master: Since the games only happen every four years, I'm sure you're all curious what goes on.

Pearl: You mean other than us losing?!

The Harbor Master: And that is exactly why I've asked George to come up and give you all a little um...


[microphone feedback]

George: Thank you, Harbor Master. [clears throat] I know a lot of you might think there's no way we

can beat a fancy harbor like Harbor Prep at anything.

Hank: Unless it's a "losing to Harbor Prep" competition! 'Cause we're really good at that!

George: [groans] And I know the TBH has never won the Friendship Games even once.

Foduck: Oh, dear. I hope this speech isn't meant to be motivational.

George: Harbor Prep tugboats are super athletic, super smart, and super motivated. But there's one

thing they aren't. They aren't Big Harbors!

We've fought magic more than once

And come out on top


Oh, oh


There's other harbors, but none can make those claims


Na, na-na-na-na, oh


Together we are Harbor

Come and cheer our name


Oh, oh


This will be our year to win these games

[George and chorus]

We'll always be Big Harbors forever

And now our time has finally arrived

'Cause we believe in the magic of friendship

And you know, at the end of the day, it is we who survive

[instrumental break]




We're not the harbor we were before




Yeah, we're different now


Oh, oh


Hey, hey!


We overcame the obstacles we faced


Overcame the obstacles we faced




We're Harbor united




And we'll never bow


Oh, oh


Hey, hey!


So get ready to see us in first place


We'll always be Big Harbors forever

(Three! Two! One! Go!)

And now our time has finally arrived

(Our time is now!)

'Cause we believe in the magic of friendship

And you know, at the end of the day, it is we who survive

At the end of the day, it is we who survive

Na, na, na-na-na-na

Big Harbors united together

Na, na, na-na-na-na

Big Harbors united forever

Na, na, na-na-na-na

Big Harbors united together


We'll always be Big Harbors forever

And now our time has finally arrived

'Cause we believe in the magic of friendship

And you know...

At the end of the day, it is we who survive

At the end of the day, it is we who survive!

[ships cheering]

Emily: George, that was amazing! Even I feel like we can win!

Foduck: I feel like my harbor pride is at an all-time high!

Lucy: Is anybody else wonderin' how George tug up without playin' his guitar?

George: I know, right? It's probably because I'm so awesome!

Zebedee: Maybe. I mean, you are awesome, but there's gotta be more to it that, right? It just

seems so random.

The Dispatcher: Well, it would be nice if you tugs could get a handle on it. We'd like to keep magic as far

away from the Friendship Games as possible. We don't want to be accused of cheating.

Foduck: We don't need magic to defeat those hoity-toity Harbor Preppers.

All but Foduck, Zebedee. and the Dispatcher: [agreeing]

Foduck: [giggles]

The Dispatcher: Still, the Friendship Games are serious business. We don't want any surprises. Especially

the kind that could cause us to forfeit. Zebedee, you came here from a world of magic. Perhaps you can

get to the bottom of our magical development.

Zebedee: I'll do my best.

George: Okay. Anybody have any guesses what the events are gonna be?

Hank: Seaweed eating? Clam eating? [gasps] Seaweed-clam eating?!

Lucy: They won't even let us see what they're doin' to the field. You think they'd at least tell competitors

what they're competing in.

Emily: It could be anything.

Foduck: Anything?! How will I ever pick the right outfit?!

Zebedee: I really wanna help, but I think I better go focus on figuring out why George tug up.

See you later!

Hank: Seems like he's got everything under control. Nothing to worry about.

Zebedee: Ugh! [sighs] [voiceover] Hey, Theodore. Haven't heard back from you yet. I guess you must be

pretty busy with your role as prince. But I could really use your advice right now. You see. I've been given the

job of keeping magic under control her at TBH, even though I still haven't  quite wrapped my head around it.

And now after seeing George tug up the way he did, it makes me think his magic might

be...changing. Everyone is looking to me to figure things out and I really don't wanna let them down. But I'm not

sure I have enough experience with friendship magic to solve this.

[bell rings]

Star-Theo: [deep breath] Excuse me. Sorry. Pardon me.

Star Grampus: [pants]

[pull ups]

Star Grampus: [whimpers]

Star-Theo: Grampus? Grampus?!

Star Grampus: [whistles]

Star-Theo: [giggles] There you are.

Star Grampus: [whistles] [licks]

Star-Theo: Okay, okay! Last night's field test confirmed it, Grampus. With this device, I can track and contain the

bizarre energy coming from Big Harbor.

Grampus: [growls]

Star-Theo: I know you didn't like me go over there, but I couldn't wait. And soon, I'll have all time I

need. All of Harbor Prep is gonna be there for the Friendship Games. I just hope all that "rivalry" nonsense

doesn't get in the way of my research. If I can collect enough data on these EM fequencies, I should be able to

extrapolate the waveforms to determine their origin. That would practically guarantee my entrance into the

Everton Independent Study Program! Whoa!


Constance: Theodore, you know the rules about sea objects.

Star-Theo: Well, Grampus isn't a sea object, Constance. He's the focus of my research project. Navy-submarine

cohabition: effects and implications.

Constance: If you say so. But Harbor Master John is highly allergic, so I guess you put on a clean wash.

Star-Theo: Why?

Constance: Because he wants to see you.

Star-Theo: Ooh! Maybe he has news about my application to Everton!

Constance: I 've been meaning to talk to you about that. Are you  sure that's what you really want?

Star-Theo: Why wouldn't be? A program that allows me to focus all my attention on my own advanced guiding and in charge? What a dream come true!

Constance: But there's aren't any jobs with other tugboats. You'll be doing everything on your own.

Star-Theo: That's why it's called an "Independent study program".

Constance: I just don't want you to miss out on anything. That's all. Being other tugboats isn't a bad

thing. Sometime's it's how you learn the most about yourself.

Star-Theo: I guess.

Constance: Meet you in Harbor Master John's office in a few minutes?

[pulls away]

Star-Theo: [to Star Grampus] What's she so worried about? Everton is exactly what I need right now. [sighs] It's not like I have anything left to learn at Harbor Prep.


I've sailed through all these waters before

I've been in and out of every dock, oh-whoa-oh

There's nothin' in this harbor that I don't know

In every job, my grade's the best

The highest score in every test

I think that means it's time for me to go

I know there's more that's out there

And I just haven't found it yet

I know there's more that's out there

Another me I haven't met

This harbor is full of tugboats

But still I don't belong

They only dream of winning

Look at me like something's wrong

Maybe I'm better off alone

Will I find what I'm lookin' for

If I just do it on my own?

I know there's more that's out there

Something to fill this hole inside

I know there's more that's out there

And I'm not afraid to try

There's only so much this harbor can offer

And I'm not saying that it's wrong

But I know there's more that's out there

'Cause I've been searching all along

Beyond these docks, beyond these jobs

So much to learn, I can't see it all

There's somethin' out there callin' me

And it's a mystery that I can't wait to see

'Cause I know there's more that's out there

Another place, another way

And I know there's more that's out there

And I'll find out someday!

I'll find out someday...

[pulls up]

[turn off the engines]

[floats up]

Star-Theo: Sadie? Why is my brother here?

Constance: As a alumni, Harbor Master John thought he could provide some inque perspective.

Star-Theo: Perspective on what?

Harbor Master John: Why, the Friendship Games, of course. You competed in the games, did you not, Sadie?

Sadie: [ahem] I did.

Harbor Master John: And you happen to recall who won?

Sadie: Ha ha, Harbor Prep did. We always win.

Harbor Master John: We always win.

Star-Theo: Why did you ask to see me?

Harbor Master John: Theodore, I'll be honest. It does't matter whether or not Harbor Prep wins or loses.

[monkeyshine squeaks] The important thing is we are expected to win because Harbor Prep has a reputation.

And it is that reputation that is responsible for everythingwe have here. For everything you've

done here. And you've done quite a lot, haven't you?

Star-Theo: I don't know. I guess.

Harbor Master John: Oh,don't be modest. You're the best tugboat this harbor has ever seen. Why I can't

understand is why my best tugboat wouldn't want to compete.

Star-Theo: In the Friendship Games?

Sadie: Look, Theo, I know it's not really your thing, but representing this harbor is kind of a big deal.

Plus, they could really use your help.

Harbor Master John: It seems Big Harbor is undergoing something of a renaissance, Test scores are up, grades,

even athletics are on the rise. You see, they are development somewhat of a reputation. This can not happen!

Star-Theo: Harbor Master John, I can't possibly participate in the games. My work here is very-

Harbor Master John: Ah, yes. Your work. Constance, could you and Sadie find my contract sheet for the

Everton Idependent Study program?

Constance: Of course.

[pulls away]

Harbor Master John: I understand you've applied. You see, one of the advantages of having a reputation is a certain

amount of influence in such things. So, let me offer you a deal. In return for contributing your agile mind to

these games, I will use my influence to guarantee your application is approved. Though, I suppose I could also

have it... denied. What do you think I should do?

Star Grampus: [growls]

Star-Theo: Ugh! Come on, Grampus! I was always gonna go to Big Harbor for the Friendship Games. Ich! The only

difference now is that I have to compete. Besides, it's not like Harbor Master John gave me of a choice.

Star Grampus: [whimpers]

Star-Theo: I know, Grampus. I don't like it either. I probably won't be able to collect anywhere near as much data as I

thought. But maybe I can still get some.

Star Grampus: [whimpers]

Star-Theo: Grampus, I wouldn't leave without you. Just remember to be quiet. And try not to spray.

[pulls up]

Star-Theo: Constance, I'm not really sure where to go.

Constance: One second, Theodore.

Zorran: [sourly]  You could try the end of the line!

Star-Theo: What did you say?

Zorran: [sweetly] Just that someone as smart as you should definitely go first.

Star-Theo: I...I didn't mean to cut in front.

Zorran: [sourly] [scoffs] Well, it's too late now.

[harbor crane opens]

Zak: Are we gonna win?!?!

Star-Theo: I...I don't know.

Zak: Wrong answer!! Try again! Are we gonna win?!?!

Star-Theo: Um..I guess? I-It's just...I mean...I heard that TBH is doing well now. With their reputation. And, I

mean, it's not better than ours, of course. But we can't let them do it, you know? Win, I mean? Right?

Captain: You're gonna have to take a seat!

Star-Theo: Hi, Zip.

Zip: That was a bad speech. You should consider not speaking in public.

[enigine starts]

Star-Theo:  Well, Grampus, at least I've got you with me.

[rock music playing on headphones]

Zug: Dude, you have gotta hear this!

Star-Theo: Uh? Eh!

[Tugbooms practicing]

George: I hope the Friendship Games have a music competition, because we woud totally rock [plays


Zebedee: Um, we're supposed to keep magic out of the Friendship Games, remember?

George: [scoffs]

Foduck: Easier said than done, darling. I'm sure in Bigg City Port, magic does whatever you want. But...

Zebedee: This isn't Bigg City Port.

Lucy: Well, when it comes to magic, I'm sure you figure it out.

Foduck: And while Zebedee works on keeping the magic out of the games, I've been working on what to put in!


Lucy: Foduck, what'd you go an' do?

Foduck: Well I had a little time on my ropes, and since we don't know what the Friendship Games' events are, I

made a few options for uniforms!

George: You really didn't have to do that.

Foduck: I know.

Lucy: No. You really didn't have to.

Foduck: I know! [giggles]

The Harbor Master: The Dispatcher can help your tugboats get settled if you'd like me to show you around,

Harbor Master John. There have been quite a few changes since you last visit.

Harbor Master John: Oh yes, Habor Master. I'm sure that would be fascinating.

The Dispatcher: Oh, it's always such pleasure to see you, Constance. Even if it means another defeat.

Constance: Thank you, The Dispatcher, but I hear it's not going to be so easy this time.

Zak: Comin' through!


Star-Theo: Oof!

Zen: Seriously?

Star-Theo: Oh, sorry. I didn't mean to. [groans] [to Zorran] Oh, sorry. Why didn't you go ahead?

Zorran: [sweetly] You are such a sweetie! [sourly and hushed] I am watching you!

[rock music on headphones]

Zug: Ahh Yeah! [rocking sounds]

Zip: You're kinda being a doormat right now.

[device hums]

Truro: Hi, Theodore.

"Millie": Hey, Theodore!

"Inverness": Hi, Theodore.

"Jennifer": Hi, Theodore.

"Canso Colossus": Hey, you. Lookin' good.

Star-Theo: Um, hi.

"Clare": Hey, what's happenin'?

"Freda": Really nice to see you.

"Louis": Theodore, how ya doin'?

"Cabot": Theodore, yo! [clicks tongue]

Star-Theo: Hi. Hello. Uh, good.


Pearl: Theodore? I almost didn't recognize you. When did you start wearin' glasses?

Star-Theo: Um, like, since forever.

Pearl: Oh, so how long are you here for?

Star-Theo: Just for the Friendship Games.

Peal: Right. Of course. We totally win with you here.

[device beeping]

Star-Theo: Uh, I gotta go.

Pearl: Uh, okay. Bye? Aw.

Lucy: Uh, Foduck, these outfits are great, but why would you put so mucj time and effort into clothes we

might not even wear? You're gonna exhaust yourself before the games even start.

Foduck: Oh, pff. Kch. Fff. Ts! Don't be silly, darling! Putting effort into clothes is what I live for, and spending time

on my friends fills me with energy!

All but Foduck: [amazed reactions]

Zebedee: And magic, too, I guess.

[device continues beeping]

Foduck: [out of breath] Actually Lucy, now that you mention it, I suppose I could use a tiny break. [faints]

Lucy: I told you.

[pulls up]

All but Star-Theo: Theodore?

Star-Theo: Uh, yes?

Lucy: Well, I'll be. You shoulda told us you were comin'.

Foduck: Darling, those glasses. What are you wearing? It's so...severe.

Star-Theo: My uniform?

Emily: Your uniform for what?

Star-Theo: For...Harbor Prep. But why does everyone at the harbor know who I am?

George: Did you just say "Harbor Prep"?

Star Grampus: [whistles]

Emily and Foduck: Grampus!

Star-Theo: [gasps] You know my submarine's name, too?

The Harbor Master: And our music island has espcially taken off. [gasp] Theodore?

Star-Theo: This is getting ridiculous!

Harbor Master John: I must aplogize fo the curiosity of my prized tugboat.

The Harbor Master: Your tugboat?

Harbor Master John: The smart ones are always curious. I'll return him to check in with the rest of his tugmates.

The Harbor Master: I didn't know Theodore had a twin brother.

Hank: He doesn't! That Theodore is obviously the Theodore from this world since it couldn't possibly be the

Theodore from the fleet world since the Theodore from the fleet world doesn't go to Harbor Prep or wear glasses.

The Harbor Master: Nevermind.

Star-Theo: I'm sorry Harbor Master John. I was just following these strange readings. Actually, they led me to those

tugs and-

Harbor Master John: Theodore, what you do in your free time is of little interest to me, but while you're here, I...all of

Harbor Prep, in fact, require your complete focus.

Star-Theo: But why does everyone at this harbor seem to know me?

Harbor Master John: Perhaps they're trying to confuse you. Perhaps they're trying to lure you away.

Star-Theo: It didn't feel like anyone was trying to lure me.

Harbor Master John: I don't know what they're planning, but I guarantee, it isn't to help us win.

Foduck: I can't believe our world's Theodore goes to Harbor Prep!

George: You're saying that Theodore's gonna play against us? He'd never do that!

Emily: Our Theodore wouldn't.

Zebedee: [angrily] Our Theodore is a prince in Bigg City Port and an expert in friendship magic! And if he

was here, we'd have already figured out why magic is randomly popping up during pep rallies and costume

changes. [deep breath] Sorry. I'm just frustrated that I haven't heard back from him.

Lucy: He's a prince in Bigg City Port. Probably got problems of his own to deal with.

Foduck: We certainly can't expect him to drop everything and pop through the portal whatever. Especially if it's to

deal with something as minor as few random tug-ups.

Zebedee: But they're aren't minor! Magic came into this world when I stole Theodore's stack. It's taken a

lot to me to earn everyone's trust. If we forfeit the games because I can't think of a way to keep it

under control...

Emily: Oh, Zebedee, I'm sure you'll be able to figure things out.

Lucy: You're the one who helped us understand what was goin' on the z-stacks. Remember?

Zebedee: I guess. But Theodore was the one who really figured out what we needed to defeat them.

Foduck: But don't you remember, darling? What we needed to defeat them was you.

Zebedee: [sighs] All right.

All but Zebedee: [cheering]

George: Come on, guys! Let's see if we ca find any info about the evemts and come up with a strategy.

You comin', Zebedee?

Zebedee: I'll...catch up with you guys in a bit.

Zebedee: [sighs] Still no reply.

[device humming]

Zebedee: Maybe there's another way I could reach him. Hey, let go!


Star-Theo and Zebedee: [screams]

Zebedee: What did you do?!

Constance: Theodore, you have to check in with the others.

Zebedee: Where's the portal? [grunts] Where's the portal?!

[oil can crunches]

Lucy: What do ya mean the portal's gone?

Zebedee: I mean it's gone. It's closed. It's not there anymore!

George: How'd that happen?

Zebedee: I don't know. But it has to do with that Theodore.

Lucy: What in tarnation is he up to?

Zak: Huh?


Zak: [snarls]

Zebedee: Leave this to me. Theodore, what have you been up to?

Star-Theo: Me? Oh, I was just, uh-

Zak: Who wants to know?!

George: Um, we do.

Lucy: All right everyone. Let's not get too competitive before the games even start.

Zip: This games aren't really competitive since weve never lost.

Emily: That's not very nice thing to say.

Zen: Sorry, dearie, but these games aren't about being nice.

Foduck: Well, you might use a little tact.

Hank: Hi, I'm Hank!

Star-Theo: Oh, hi. I'm Theodore.

Hank: I know. You look just like my friend. His name is Theodore too.

Star-Theo: That's... heh, weird.

Hank: What's that?

Star-Theo: It's sort a of a spectrometer. I buillt it to track EM frequencies, but it can also contain anomalies. [beat] It

measures things.

Hank: Like a party?

Star-Theo: Yeah, though it doesn't look like much of a party to me.

Hank: I know. Something is definitely missing. Come on!

Star-Theo: Aah!

The Harbor Master: Hello, everyone! I'd like to take this opportunity to greet all of our visitors from Harbor Prep

Academy and welcome to TBH.

Star-Theo: [grunts] What in the world is in these?

Hank: Party cannons, of course!

The Harbor Master: And lastly, I would like to recognize the twelve tugboats that TBH has elected to compete. I

don't think we could have chosen a better group to represent the excellence, sportsmanship, and friendship the

games stand for.

[party music]

[everyone conversing]

Star-theo: Um, are you sure this a good idea?

Hank: Absolutely!

[party cannon squeaks]

[everyone talking]

Hank: Ooh! floaty!

[device humming]

Hank: Aw! Oh.I am party pooped.


[device closes, powers down]

[thumping on microphone]


[record scratch]

[music stops]

Harbor Master John: I'd like to thank The Habor Master for his unconventional welcome. It's been four years since

the last Friendship Games, but it feels as though nothing changed. Big Harbor continues to pick its

competitors in a popularity contest and Harbor Prep continues to field its top twelve tugboats. It is a comfort to

know that even after so many years of losses, your harbor remains commited to its ideals, however misguided

they may be. I wish you all the best of luck, regardless of the inevitable outcome.

Hank: Oh.

Lucy: I'm sorry, Hank. I thought your party additions were really swell.

Emily: they definitely broke the ice.

Foduck: Yes. If only the Harbor Master John hadn't frozen again.

Hank: Yeah, he's awful.

Zebedee: Wow, Hank, what happened to you?

Hank: I don't know. Everyone started havig fun after Theodore and I fired the party cannons and I tug


Zebedee: Of course you did.

Hank: But then the magic just drained right out of me.

Zebedee: Wait, what do you mean "drained out of you"?

Lucy: Hey. Where is that other Theodore?

Hank: Oh, he's right... Uh, well, he was right here.

The Dispatcher: [over P.A. system] Good morning, ships. I'm sure you're all thrilled to start the first day

of the Friendship Games. Our competitors will face off in every aspect of the TBH curriculm, culminating in the

elimination equation finale.

Constance: Welcome to the first event, the Academic Decathlon! You'll be scored on pulling, pushing

and everything in between. But remember, only six tugboats from each team with the most points will move

on to event number. Good luck!

[Zebedee and Big Harbors]

Ho! We're gonna take you down

Ho! We're gonna take you down!

Take you down! ( Ho! We're gonna take you down (Aw aw!)

Take you down! (Down, down, down)

[Zorran and Shadowtugs]

(Oh oh!) We're here to take you out

(Aw, aw!) We're here to take you out (Aw, aw!)

Take you out! (We're here to take you out!)

Take you out!

[Big Harbors]

We're not about to let you win, so get out of our way

Think you got us beat, but we're here to stay

United strong, yeah, we'll take you down

You're not so tough, now you're in our town

All of the times we lost before

Not about to give up, we're only bringin' it more

We can smell your fear, we can see your sweat

Hope you did't spend money 'cause you're losin' this bet!

You've got nothin' on us

Na, na, na-na-na, na

Let's go, Big harbors!

You've got nothin' on us

Na, na, na-na-na, na

Let's go, Big Harbors!


Talk a little too much for a harbor that never wins

Maybe you should just stop 'fore you even begin

We are Harbor Prep High and we have a reputation

Every little moment is about our education

Put your ear to the ground

Listen to that sound

You're house of cards

And it's about to fall down (fall down)

About to fall dow (fall down), hit the ground

You've got nothin' on us

Na, na, na-na-na, na

Let's go Shadowtugs!

You've nothin' on us

na, na, na-na-na, na

Let's go Shadowtugs

[Big Harbors]

Pressure's on, you know we're gonna take you

Just give up before we have to break you

Habor-not-a-lot, you're about to go

Down, down, down, down

[Big Harbors]

Take it up to the top

'Cause we know we can win


Maybe you should just stop

'Cause we've seen you give in

[Big Harbors]

We believe in ourselves

And we've got what it takes


And we're gonna stop


I can't wait 'til this is all over

There's so much more that's going on


And before these games are over

I'll find out just he's done


Can he do it? Will he make it?

Who will win? Who will take it?

Can he do it? Who will take it?

Did he win it? Did he make it?

Who's the winner? Who's the reject?

How did he answer?

Harbor Master John: Incorrect!

[camera shutter clicks]

The Dispatcher: That means the winner of the Friendship Games' first event is Theodore Tugboat and Harbor


Harbor Prep Tugboats: [sighs] scattered applause]

George: That was awesome!

Foduck: Truly amazing!

Zebedee: But we didn't win!

Lucy: That was close to winnin' as Harbor's ever been.

Constance: After a careful tally of the points, we's like to present the tugboats moving to the Friendship

Games' second event.


The Main Six: [cheering]

Pearl: congratulations! You were really great!

[device humming]

Star-Theo: I'm sorry. Excuse me.

Pearl: Okay, then. Aw.

Fishing boat: [purrs]

[brush rustling]

Emily: Do you wanna give her a oil?

Star-Theo: Guess I'm not the only one to smuggle her boat into harbor.

Emily: [giggles] Not just one.

Star-Theo: Oh, wow. All I have is Grampus.

Star Grampus: [panting]

Emily: It really is uncanny. Does he talk?

Star-Theo: Um, not that I know of.

Emily: Congratulations on winning, by the way. Though, it didn't seem like anyone on your team was very

excited about it.

Star-Theo: No one at my harbor gets excited about anything they didn't do themselves.

Emily: That's sounds awful. [beat] Here. Hold this.

Star-Theo: Um, why?

Emily: Holding a fishing boat always makes me feel better.

Star-Theo: Well, that's ridiculous. But... Ooh. It actually kind of works. I'm on the other team and you just lost. Why

are you being so nice to me

Emily: You looke like you needed it.

[magic noises]

Star-Theo: [gasps] Whoa!

[device activates]

Star Grampus: [growls and whistles]

Star-Theo: Grampus!

Star Grampus: [yowls]

Star-Theo: Grampus!

Emily: [shudders]

Star-Theo: Grampus, are you okay?

Star Grampus: Um, I think so.


Star-Theo and Star Grampus: Daaaah!!!

Star-Theo: [squeals]

Star Grampus: Theodore, wait!

Emily: [sigs] Bye.

Star-Theo: [panting]

Star Grampus: Theodore, come on! Wait for me! [panting] Why did you run way like that?

Star-Theo: Um, oh, I don't know. Maybe it has to do with the glowing tug, or that hole in space. Or my

talking submarine!

Star Grampus: Yeah. Weird, right?

Star-Theo: Are you okay? How do you feel? What happened? Where did you go?

Star Grampus: Hey, one question at a time! This is pretty new to me, too.

Star-Theo: Sorry.

Star Grampus: All I know I chased that netty boat through the glowy thing and then I was somewhere else.

Next thing I knew, I was back in that nice tug's ropes and I could talk! I don't really understand why I wouldn't

before. I mean, it's so easy.

Harbor Master John: Theodore.

Star-Theo: Quick hide in here!

[cave closes]

Harbor Master John: Who are you talking to?

Star-Theo: Um, myself. It's a nervous habit. Were you looking for me?

Harbor Master John: Indeed I was. Quite a coincidence the the TBH tugboats are moving on the next event are the

same nice tugboats who were so interested in you, don't you think?

Star-Theo: I'm not sure.

Harbor Master John: Perhaps you should get to know them after all.

Star-Theo: But I thought you didn't want me to.

Harbor Master John: Let's just say I'm covering my bases. Who knows? Perhaps they will reveal to you the secret to

Big Harbor's newfound success.

Star-Theo: I dunno. Spying feels kind of...wrong.

Harbor Master John: Well, it's you decision, Theodore. It's not as if your application hand the balance. On second

thought, yes it does.

Star Grampus: Man, he's awful. What you gonna do?

Star-Theo: [sighs] I don't know Grampus. I don't know.

Emily: All I did was give Theodore a boat. Then I tug up.

Zebedee: I just don't get it. Foduck's magic came out whe he made us oufits. Hank's when he fixed

the party and now Emily.

Emily: And then Theodore's pendant thingy just pulled the magic right out of me. I couldn't sit up.

Hank: Like me at the party!

Foduck: Or me right before we met Theodore!

Zebedee: So he's stealing magic?

Lucy: I don't know. He doesn't seem like the magic-stealin' type.

Zebedee: Yeah, but he had something to do with closing the portal. If his pendant can pull in magic.

maybe it stole the portal, too.

Emily: How?

Zebedee: I don't know. And the tug or person or prince who could help me figure this out is

comepletely unreachable now.

Hank: Which is too bad, because Theodore knows everything about magic and portals and magical portals

and portable magics!


George: For now, let's just focus on beating the Shadowtugs. And as long as this event put me in a

playing field, I don't think we've got anything to worry about.

Lucy: Oh, it puts you on a playin' field, alright.

Hank: [gasps loudly]

Zebedee: Am I the only one who thinks this is overkill?

Lucy: [to Foduck]  I don't suppose you made a motortow outfits.

Foduck: Oh, don't be ridiculous. Of course I did!

Harbor Master John: You will race in pairs. Zak and Zorran will handle the motortow.

Zak: Yes!

Harbor Master John: Zug and Zen have requested the short track.

Zug and Zen: [high bow each other]

Harbor Master John: Since pushing barge is a standard requirement at our harbor, any of you should be able to do it.

Theodore and Zorran will start us off.

Zorran: [sweetly] Well, that's just marvelous! [sourly] If you wanna lose before we even start!

Harbor Master John: Given that Theodore won the last event single-handedly, I have every confidence that he will

be able to pull his weight here. Won't you?

[camera shutter clicking]

Constance: Welcome, everyone to the Friendship Games Tricross Relay!

[ships cheering]

Constance: In this event, our qualifying competitors will face off in pushing barge, speed racing, and finally


[engines rev]

Constance: So if the competitors are ready... [blows horn] Each competitors must hit a bullseye before

their teammates can start the next propellar of the relay.

[barge hits]

[audience cheers]

Zorran: [growls]

[audience cheers]

[barge hits]

[barge misses]

Zorran: [growls]

Lucy: [breathes]

[barge whooshes]

[barge hits]

[bell dings]

[ships cheers]

Constance: And Big Harbor is off to an early lead!

[barge keep missing]

Zorran: [sourly] Well, that's just fantastic!

Emily: I'm glad I don't go to Harbor Prep.

Lucy: You said it.

Hank: Whee!

Constance: If HPA can't hit another bullseyes soon, they'll be out of this race.

Zip: You're really bad at this!

Lucy: Ugh! I can't take anymore! Ya have to stop aimin' at the target.

Zorran: [sweet sarcastic] Oh, that makes perfect sense! Don't aim at the target! Thanks so much!

Lucy: Ya have to stop aimin' at where the target is an' aim at where the target's gonna be.

Zorran: [sweetly sarcastic] Yeah! Definitely take advice from the tugboat [sourly] you're competing


Lucy: Do you wanna hit the bullseye or not? Then trust me. Take a deep breath.

Star-Theo: [deep breath]

Lucy: And let the barge!

[barge whooshing]

[barge hits]

[ships cheers]

[bell dings]

Star Grampus: Yeah! That's my tugboat!

Lucy: See? I was tellin' ya the truth.

[magic noises]

[device hums]


Star-Theo: I don't know!



Constance: Big Harbor only has two laps to go! But it looks like Harbor Prep is making up for lost time!

[Shadowtugs fans cheering]

[propellers rolling]

Foduck: Come on!

[Big harbors fans cheering]

Constance: What a finish!

[camera shutter clicks]

[engines rev]

Star-Theo: Aah!

George: Awesome!

[ships cheer]

Bigg City Port creature: [roars]

[ships gasps]

[brakes screech]

Bigg City Port creature: [roars]

Zebedee: George, you saved me!

George: I wasn't about to let my friend become scrap food.

[magic noises]

[brake screech]

George: We can still win this!

Bigg City Port creature: [roars]


Constance: Big Harbor wins!

[Big Harbors fans cheering]

Constance: Attention, tugboats, please proceed to the harbor mouth.

[device humming]

[portals closing]

Lucy: Is everbody all right?

George: Bettter than all right! We won!

Zebedee: Yeah, we won, but somebody could've been seriously hurt. The magic is going haywire

and I have no idea how to fix it!

Star-Theo: Um, excuse me, I didn't mean for any of this to happen. I just wanted to learn about the strange

energy coming from the harbor. I didn't know that it was magic it works.

George: That's okay. Neither do we.

Star-Theo: Oh, no! Oh, no no no! Not again!

George: [struggling]

Star-Theo: I'm sorry! It just starting absorbing energy on it's own! but I'm not sure how!

Zebedee: What do you mean you don't know how?!

[portal opening]

Star-Theo: It also causes these corresponding rifts to appear! I don't know how that works either.

Zebedee: Is there anything you do know?! Like how to get our magic back?! Or how to fix the portal

to Bigg City Port?!

Star-Theo: Bigg City Port?

Zebedee: You supposed to be so smart, but did you ever think that you shouldn't be messing

around with things you don't understand?!

[portal closing]

Star-Theo: But I wanna understand!

Zebedee: But you don't! And worst of all, you put the lives of my friends in danger!

Star-Theo: [voice breaking] I'm sorry. I didn't mean to. [sobbing]

Star Grampus: Theodore, wait!

The Harbor Master: [clears throat]

Harbor Master John: You can't possibly call that a fair race.

The Harbor Master: Harbor Master John, we all saw what happened. You can't think TBH had some kind of


Harbor Master John: Can't I? Even without your trained attack scraps, your tugboats have tow ropes!

The Harbor Master: Well, the race certainly have some...extenuating circumstances. Perhaps we should end

the games now a declare a tie.

Harbor Master John: A tie? Was this your strategy all along? To force us into accepting you as equals? I think

not. The games will continue and Harbor Prep will prevail despite your antics and whatever preformance-

enhancing regimen your tugboats are on.

Zebedee: I'm sorry I couldn't stop all this from happening.

The Habor Master: It's not your fault, Zebedee.

Zebedee: Isn't it? I should know how to control magic I brought here. But I don't. I let everyone

down. And now Harbor Master John thinks we're cheating.

The Harbor Master: It doesn't matter what Habor Master John thinks.

Zebedee: But it does. The ships here at TBH don't just wanna win. They wanna beat Harbor

Prep. It isn't gonna count if the other side doesn't really think they lost. Habor Prep is never gonna believe

we won fair and square if there's magic around. And that magic is only around...because of me.

[ships cheering]

Constance: Since the score's tied, the final event will determine the winner of the Friendship Games.

The Dispatcher: Somewhere on campus, a pennant from each harbor has been hidden. The first team

to find their harbor's flag and bring it back wins.

Constance: And as soon as our teams are ready, we'll begin.

Emily: I don't feel like playing these games anymore.

George: Well, we have to play! This is the last event!

Foduck: [scoffs] It's a little hard to focus with all the magic stealing and portal opening.

Zebedee: And I feel awful about what I said to Theodore.

Emily: Especially since he obviously didn't mean to do all the stuff he did. He's actually really nice.

Zebedee: [facepalms]

Lucy: Let's just get through this last event and prove we're not a bunch of cheaters. Then you can go

over and aplogize.

Harbor Master John: I know I'm asking you to beat a team that isn't playing fair, but Big Harbor must be made

to understand that even with magic at their disposal, beating Harbor Prep is simply not an option.

Zip: What if they grow tow ropes again?

Harbor Master John: A fair question. Though I believe we can now fight fire with fire. I've seen what your device

can do, Thoedore. Containing magic energy is fine, but have you considered releasing it?

Star-Theo: But I don't even understand how it works.

Harbor Master John: But you'd like to. And since our opponents have already used to stay competitive, I see no

reason why we shoudn't do the same. Unless, of course, you have no interest in Everton. Though, honestly, I

think there's more knowledge packed in that little device than any independent study program could offer.

[Harbor Master John]

I realize that you've always been an outcast

It's not everyone at harbor who likes to think

To find a tugboat that's like you

I've have one or maybe two

But the good ones disappear before I blink


(Oh, wuh-oh-wuh, oh

Oh, wuh-oh-wuh)

[Harbor Master John]

Now, I understand you have you reservations (oh-wuh)

It's hard to have brain as large as yours (oh-oh-oh-oh)

But if we don't win these games

Well, I think I've made it plain

What will happen if we have the losing scores!


(Oh, wuh-oh-wuh, oh

Oh, wuh-oh-wuh)

Unlesh the magic, unleash the magic

If we lose, then you're to blame (ah, ah-ah-ah)

They all have used it, maybe abused it (ah-ah-ah)

So then why can't we do the same?

(Oh, wuh-oh-wuh, oh

Oh, wuh-oh-wuh)

[Harbor Master John]

Call it power, call it magic

If we lose, it will be tragic

More important is the knowledge we'll have lost (oh-oh-oh-oh)

A chance like this won't come again

You'll regret not giving in

Isn't understanding magic worth the cost?


(Oh, wuh-oh-wuh, oh

Oh, wuh-oh-wuh)

Unleash the magic, Unleash the magic

We're not friends here after all

Our only interest in this business (ah-ah-ah)

Is seeing The Big Harbor fall

(Oh, wuh-oh-wuh, oh

Oh, wuh-oh-wuh)

[Harbor Master John]

What I'm suggesting's very simple

And since it's win-win on all scores

You only want to learn about the

Magic that you have stored

And as for me and all the others

We only want what we deserve

That our harbor will clinch the win

Any my...

[Harbor Master John and Shadowtugs]

...legacy will endure

Unleash the magic, unleash the magic

If we lose, then it's a crime

But we can win it if you begin it (ah-ah-ah)

It's up to you to not fail this time

[Zip and Zug]

Unleash the magic, free the magic now

[Zorran and Zak]

Unleash the magic, free the magic now

[Zip and Zug]

Unleash the magic, free the magic


[Zorran and Zak]

Unleash the magic, free the magic


[Zip and Zug]

Unleash the magic, free the magic


[Zorran and Zak]

Unleash the magic, free the magic


[Zip and Zug]

Unleash the magic, free the magic


[Zorran and Zak]

Unleash the magic, free the magic


[Zip and Zug]

Unleash the magic, free the magic



Unleash the magic, free the magic...

Unleash the magic, free the magic...


Imagine all I'll learn by setting free

The Dispatcher: If both teams are ready...


And now winning these games depends on me

And what doors might open if I try to use it

Constance: ...the last event of the Friendship Games



But the magic's what I really want to see

Star Grampus: Theodore, no!

[The Dispatcher and Constance]


[boom, whoosh]

Star Grampus: [gasps]

Star-Theo: [struggles] Heeeeeeeeeelllllllp...meeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! Uhh! Ahh!

[transformaation noises]

Star Grampus: [whimpers]

Midnight Tugboat: [evil laughter] [to Zebedee] You were right! I didn't understand magic before, but I do now!


Zebedee: Bigg City Port!


[ships screaming]

Zen: Hey! Where you think your going?!

Harbor Master John: Anywhere to avoid! And I suggestyou do the same!

Zebedee: Theodore, you can't do this!

Midnight Tugboat: Why not?!  There's a whole other world right there, and it's just filled with magic!

Zebedee: But you're destroying this world to get it!

Midnight Tugboat: So what? There's more magic there, and I want to understand it all!


[ships screaming]

Lucy: [grunts] Don't let go!

[ships screaming]

George: Hang on!

Foduck: Obviously! [struggling]

Zak: We got you!

[device humming]

[magic noises]

Zebedee: This isn't the way! I know you feel powerful right now, like you can have everything you

want! I've been where you are, I've made the same mistake you're making! I put on a stack and, just like you,

I was overhelmed by the magic it contained! I thought it could get me everything I wanted!

Midnight Tugboat: Oh, you're wrong. Unlike you, I can haev everything I want!

Zebedee: No, you can't. Even with all that magic and power, you'll still be alone! True magic comes

from honesty! Loyalty! Laughter! Generosity! Kindness! I understand you, Theodore and I want to show you the

most important magic of all...

[transformation noises]

Daydream Zebedee: ...the Magic of Friendship!

[magic noises]

Midnight Tugboat: [grunts] [evil laughter]

Star Grampus: Theodore!

Star-Theo: Grampus?

Midnight Tugboat: Noooo!

Daydream Zebedee: Take my rope, Theodore. Let me show you there's another way... just like someone once

did for me.

[magic noises]

Star-Theo: I am so sorry...I didn't mean for any of this to happen...

Zebedee: I know. And going by my own experiences, they'll forgive you.

Star Grampus: [whistles]

Star-Theo: [giggles]

Harbor Master John: [angerily] Harbor Master, on behalf of Harbor Prep, I demand that you forfeit the

Friendship Games! Clearly, TBH has had unfair advantage for quite some time! And it's certainly obvious that

your tugboats have been using magic for their own benefit!

The Habor Master: I'd like to think that saving the world benefits us all.

Zip: At least they didn't manipulate Theodore into releasing all the stolen magic and turning into a

power crazed magical creature that tried to rip the world apart just to win a game.

Hank: Wow! That's a lot to take in when you say it all at once.

Harbor Master John: That's ridiculous!

Star Grampus: Nope, that's pretty much what happened.

Zorran: [sweetly] Actually, we're all to blame. [sourly] Mostly it was him.

Harbor Master John: Obviously my tugboats have been infected with your magic, but I plan on taking all of this up

with the harbor board!

The Harbor Master: Good. I'm sure they would be interested in hearing all about the magical tugboats

with tow ropes.

The Dispatcher: Oh, and the portals to different dimensions.

Constance: And don't forget to tell them about the talking submarine. [giggles]

Star Grampus: Because that would never ruin your reputation.

[Prince Theodore's theme playing]

The Harbor Master: Well, I know these Friendship Games haven't been what any of us expected, but given

what we've all just been through, I think it's fair to declare us all winners.

[everone cheers]

Constance: I guess that that was one way to finish up your time at Harbor Prep. Pretty sure John will be

fast-tracking your application after all of that.

Star-Theo: I've been thinking about it and...I'm not so sure now is time for me to apply to Everton.

Constance: Really?

Star-Theo: I may know about a lot of things, but friendship isn't really one of them. And I'm definitely not gonna

learn more about it by being alone all the time.

Constance: So, you're saying at Habror Prep?

Star-Theo: Well, it seems the tugboats here at TBH know an awful lot about the subject. I don't suppose...

Constance: You could transfer to this harbor instead.

Star-Theo: Really?

Constance: You'd certainly be missed at Harbor Prep. But I think that's a great idea! I'll be sure to speak

to The Harbor Master about it right away.

Emily: Still no word from Prince Theodore?

Zebedee: Not yet. But I think I may figured out how magic works in this world. We tug up

when we're showing the truest part of ourselves. I was so busy waiting for someone else to give me the

answers that I gave up looking for them myself. I'm sure there will be more magical problems that pop up in

this world, but like Lucy said, Prince Theodore has his own problem to worry about in Bigg City Port. We

can't expect him to always be around with us.

Star-Theo: But maybe I can be?

The Harbor Master: It seems we have a new harbor tugboat here at Big Harbor!

Star-Theo: I'm not sure how much help I could be. But I'd like to try. If you would all give me a chance.

The Habor Master: I'm sure I can count on you tugboats to help him feel at home.

Zebedee: You sure can.

Hank: [squee]

Theodore Tugboat: I'm so sorry. I didn't get here sooner! I didn't get your messages until just now because I

was caught in this time travel loop and, honestly, it was the strangest thing that's ever happened to me! [beat]

Hank: [refueling oil]

Theodore Tugboat: Make that the second strangest.

[end credits]


I spent so muc time searchin'

Lookin' for somethin' more

Diggin' holes too deep

And opening every door

And when you stand too close

Yeah, the picture's never clear

And when you look too far away

It all but disappears


And it was right (right) there in front of me (Oh-oh, ah-oh-oh)

Just too close for me to see (Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh)

Sometimes the things you want

Are not the things you need

And it was right there in front of me


There was a time before

I didn't know where I belonged

I thought I needed more

And that I couldn't get along

[Star-Theo and Zebedee]

But who I am

Was all I ever needed

And when I faced that test

I finally succeeded


And it was right (right) there in front of me (Oh-oh, ah-oh-oh)

Just too close for me to see (Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh)

Sometimes the things you want

Are not the things you need

And it was right there in front of me

[Star-Theo and Zebedee]

And it's all I'll ever need


Oh, whoa-oh, oh-whoa-oh

[Star-Theo and Zebedee]

And it was right there in front of me


Oh, whoa-oh, oh-whoa-oh

[Star-Theo and Zebedee]

And it's all I'll ever need


Oh, whoa-oh, oh-whoa-oh

And it was right there in front of me-ee-eee
