So right Fred the Shark is swimming along and sees Sid the Squid looking a bit poorly. Being the sneaky kind, Fred goes up to Sid and tells him he can take him to another shark who can help him feel better. So Sid the Squid naively follows Fred the Shark to go and see Mark the Shark. When they get there, Fred says to Mark, "Told you I wouldn't let you down. Here's that sick squid I owe you."



I thank you.
