This is an episode transcript for Tomato Sawyer and Huckleberry Larry's Big River Rescue.
Bob: Hi kids, and welcome to VeggieTales. I'm Bob the Tomato.
Larry: And I'm late for my book club.
(Larry is then shown heading off-screen to go to the book club.)
Bob: Uh, book club?
(Larry is then shown arriving at the book club.)
Larry: Hi, everyone. Sorry about that.
Mr. Lunt: It's okay, we started without you.
Larry: Discussing the book?
Jimmy: No, eating the snacks!
Archibald Asparagus: And they were delicious!
Mr. Lunt: I would put them on par with the snacks from two months ago, but they paled in comparison to the snacks from last month.
(Bob comes over to the book club.)
Bob: What are you guys reading?
Bob:: Oh, that's a classic! What did you think?
(A shot of Jimmy and Archibald looking confused is shown with the sound of crickets chirping, followed by Mr. Lunt looking through his book.)
Mr. Lunt: Personally, I found the book riveting, full of... flawed characters and classic American humor.
(A sheet of paper falls out of Mr. Lunt's book, landing near Bob.)
Bob: What's this? "Norm's Notes?"
Mr. Lunt: Condensed outlines of books for the vegetable on the go.
Bob: You didn't read the book? You just read notes about the book? Do you guys allow this?
(Similar sheets of paper fall out of Larry, Jimmy, and Archibald's books at the same time.)
Larry: It does make everything go a lot faster.
Mr. Lunt: Norm's got notes on every book you could ever want. "War and Peace" took me fifteen minutes! I found it riveting, full of flawed characters and classic Russian pathos.
Bob: *ahem* I hate to interrupt, but Larry, we've got a letter to answer.
Larry: Oh, right. Who's it from?
Bob: This one comes to us from Zachary Alexander in Glen Allen, Virginia.
Mr. Lunt: How long is it?
Bob: Just one page.
Mr. Lunt: Oh, I'm sure I'll find it riveting.
Bob: *ahem* Right. It says, "Dear Bob and Larry, there's a kid in my school named Joseph who gets made fun of a lot. I feel really bad for him, but I'm afraid if I help him out, I'll get made fun of too. I guess I'm just not sure if I should get involved. What do you think?"
Mr. Lunt: I think that's enough reading for the day.
Jimmy: Yes! Who brought dessert?
Archibald: Ah, it was my turn!
(Archibald then pulls out a piece of cake, delighting Jimmy and Mr. Lunt.)
Bob: Well, Zachary, I think you've got a real problem. Sometimes, the best thing to do is...
Larry: Is to watch this story about Huckleberry Larry!
Bob: Uh, Huckleberry Larry?
Larry: We couldn't get the rights to "Finn."
Mr Lunt: Wait a minute, are you saying we can watch the story from our book club?
Larry: That's right!
Mr. Lunt: That's three minutes of my life I'll never get back.(Mr Lunt throws his book on the floor, right before fading to black and transitioning to the story.)
