Arthur's dad reads "Once there was a big pirate ship whose captain was the toughest pirate of all" while Arthur imagines himself as a captain. Then he reads "The captain was having the ship cleaned while looking for treasure hidden in a remote island" while D.W. imagines herself as the captain with Arthur as her servant, making her laugh. Arthur asks her what's funny. All D.W. could do was laugh. In her imagination, D.W. points her telescope towards the screen as the short ends.
