Episode 3: To Catch A Snipe
A Lesson in Determination
[It is nighttime in the forest, with the moon shining bright, illuminating the dark
night sky. Within the darkest of the night, there's a silhouette of a flock of birds
flying across the dark night sky. The birds fly frantically while being chased by a
dark figure that is hard to make out in the darkest of the night. However, it turns
out that the dark figure is actually revealed to be Juodas the black wolf. The birds
continue flying as fast as they can to escape from Juodas, until one of the birds in
the back ends up loosing his strength and falls to the ground. Juodas does not even
notice the fallen bird as he continues chasing after the rest of the flock. Of course,
the flock is able to escape from Juodas, who can only watch as they fly away. Juodas
then swears his revenge afterwards.]
Juodas: Fly away, you cowards! But the next time I see you again, I'll catch one of
you! Mark my words!
[With that, Juodas then walks back the way he came, completely overlooking the bird
that got left by his flock. When the lost bird gets back up again, he starts flying
as fast as he can to try and catch up with his flock. Unfortunately, the bird cannot
find his flock anywhere. This saddens him so much that he lets out a loud squawk that
echoes throughout the forest. Of course, this all happens near a certain tree. Inside
the tree, Junior Asparagus/Abyssinian is asleep in bed when he wakes up when he hears
this loud squawking sound. Junior is surprised when he hears this sound before he
starts looking around rather anxiously.]
Junior: W-w-what was that?
[Seconds later, Junior hears the door open, before Dad Asparagus/Abyssinian enters
the room to see if Junior is alright.]
Dad Asparagus: Junior, is everything all right in here?
Junior: I heard something out there, Dad. I think it might be a monster.
Dad Asparagus: Now, Junior, there are no monsters out there. I don't know what you
heard, but I'm sure it's nothing to be afraid of.
Junior: But, Dad-
Dad Asparagus: Please, Junior, just go back to sleep. Everything will be okay in the
Junior: Okay, Dad.
Dad Asparagus: Good night, Junior.
Junior: Good night, Dad.
[Dad Asparagus then leaves Junior's bedroom, before Junior gets back into his bed
once again, but not without thinking about the squawking sound that he heard just
Junior: I wonder what that sound was? Tomorrow, I'm determined to find out what that
[After a few minutes, Junior finally goes back to sleep, as the moon still shines in
the night sky.]
[The next morning, after having breakfast, Junior then goes out into the woods and
meets up with some of the other animals to tell them about the sound he heard last
night. The Veggie Animals that he meets up with are Bob the Tomato/Red Panda, Larry
the Cucumber/Ring-Tailed Lemur, Petunia Rhubarb/Sifaka, Laura Carrot/Poodle, Mr.
Nezzer the Wolverine, Scooter Carrot/Scottish Deerhound, and Jimmy and Jerry Gourd/
Jackal. After Junior tells them about the sound that he heard, they become surprised,
before remembering that most of them had also heard a sound similar to the one that
Junior had heard last night.]
Bob: Come to think of it, I do remember a loud squawking sound from outside my house
Larry: So did I, Bob.
Junior: But what was it?
Bob: I don't know, Junior.
Petunia: But whatever it was, it's somewhere in this area.
[Seconds later, the group looks down at the ground to notice a bunch of tracks on the
Laura: Look! Tracks!
Bob: Yes, bird tracks from the looks of them.
Larry: But what kind of bird made these tracks, Bob?
Bob: How should I know, Larry? All I know is that these tracks are made by a bird of
[Aristotle then shows up afterwards, after having overheard the entire conversation.]
Aristotle: I know what kind of bird made these tracks that you're speaking of.
Jimmy: You do, Aristotle?
Aristotle: Not only that, but these tracks also belong to the bird that made the
squawking sound you heard last night.
Laura: Well, what is it, Aristotle?
Aristotle: It's a type of bird called a snipe.
All: A snipe?!?
Larry: What is a snipe, Aristotle?
Aristotle: It is a bird that is thought to be more adept in the water.
Mr. Nezzer: How do you know that?
Aristotle: Because, I happen to be a bird myself.
Jimmy: Makes sense.
Petunia: But what would a snipe be doing here in these parts of the woods?
Scooter: I haven't the slightest idea, but I don't believe that there is a snipe
Aristotle: Why not, Scooter?
Scooter: In Scotland, where I come from, a 'snipe hunt' is another word for a
'wild goose chase'.
Junior: That's it! We'll go on a snipe hunt and look for the snipe!
Laura: Are you sure that's a good idea, Junior?
Larry: I think a snipe hunt sounds like a good idea too, Junior.
Jimmy: Yeah, count us in too!
Larry: Are you coming with us, Petunia?
Petunia: I don't know about this, Larry, it doesn't seem right to hunt down a
poor helpless snipe.
Jimmy: Aw, come on! We're not gonna hurt the snipe when we find it, we're just
gonna capture it and bring it back to show everyone else.
Petunia: Still, I'd rather not come.
Mr. Nezzer: I'm not coming on the snipe hunt either. I have too much work to do
Larry: What about you, Scooter?
Scooter: Hmph! I'm not looking for some mythical snipe either! *to himself* Snipe
hunt, of all the blatherskite.
[It is then decided that Bob, Larry, Junior, Laura, Jimmy, Jerry, and Aristotle are
the ones that are going to look for the snipe. Meanwhile, in another area of the
forest, the bird from last night is up in a tree still calling out for his flock,
but still without any success. This time, the bird can be seen more clearly, it is
a snipe with light brown feathers all over his body, some black stripes on his wings
and head, and white feathers on his underbelly. However, while the snipe is up in
the tree, Juodas is stalking through the forest, before he sees the snipe sitting
in the tree.]
Juodas: Oh, how could I have missed one measly snipe when I was chasing a whole
flock of them last night? At least this snipe is all alone and it looks like it
might make a great meal for me.
[With that, Juodas then starts stalking towards the tree that the snipe is sitting
in. Seconds later, Juodas then pounces forward, but the branch that the snipe is
sitting on is much too high, so Juodas ends up landing face first on the ground
after jumping up. The snipe then notices Juodas as he quickly flies away to escape
the evil wolf, just as he picks himself up off the ground.]
Juodas: You can fly, but you can't hide, you little feathered morsel! The next time
I see that little side dish again, I'll catch him!
[With that, Juodas then slinks off into the foliage again, in the direction that
the snipe had gone. Back in the main part of the forest, Junior, after having
gotten permission from his parents to go on the snipe hunt, meets up with Bob,
Larry, Jimmy, Jerry, Laura, and Aristotle.]
Larry: Glad you could make it, Junior.
Junior: Did you get the supplies we need?
Bob: Yep, Junior, we got what we need for this little expedition.
Larry: Yeah, a map of the forest. *holds out a map*
Jimmy: We also brought the nets and the food too.
Jerry: That's right, Jimmy.
Aristotle: It appears that we're all set to look for the snipe.
Junior: Well, I'm ready, come on, guys!
Aristotle: My, Junior, you seem really determined to find the snipe, aren't you?
Junior: I am, Aristotle, I want to prove that what we heard is not make-believe.
Aristotle: I share your determination, Junior. After all, determination is one of
the important aspects of life.
[With all of that set aside, Bob, Larry, Junior, Laura, Jimmy, Jerry, and Aristotle
then set off deep within the forest to try and look for the snipe. The small group
trudge on down the trail in the forest. There, they are able to pass by a grove of
saplings, cross a small stream, and make their way over a small hill. The next obstacle
for the small group is a large log over top of a small trench.]
Aristotle: The only way for any of you to cross this trench is to try and crawl under
Jimmy: You're kidding, right? Just how are we supposed to fit under that log?
Bob: I'll go first, and then we'll know if any of us fit or not.
[Bob then proceeds to crawl under the log without any problems. Once Bob is able
to make it under the log, Larry is next in crawling under the log, which he is able
to get under with ease, thanks to his slender build, since he is a lemur. Junior
and Laura also crawl under the log as well, leaving behind Jimmy and Jerry. Aristotle
is also left as well.]
Bob: Well, are you two coming?
Jimmy: Oh, alright, Bob, keep your stripes on.
Jerry: Yeah, we're coming.
[Jimmy and Jerry also try to crawl under the log, able to get their heads and their
arms through, but unfortunately for them, their bellies won't budge from under the
log, because of their overweight physiques. Because of that, the two Jackals end
up stuck under the log.]
Jimmy: We can't get through! We're stuck!
[The two jackal brothers try without any success to pry themselves out from under
Jimmy: You guys go on without us!
Jerry: We'll only slow you down!
Junior: We're not leaving you guys behind!
Bob: Junior's right, it's important that all of us stay together as a group.
Larry: You're right, Bob, but how do free Jimmy and Jerry?
Bob: I'm not sure, Larry.
Aristotle: Remember, everyone, determination can make us do anything as long as
we believe in God.
Junior: You heard Aristotle, guys.
Laura: Right, Junior, we can't give up!
[With that, Bob and Junior are able to grab hold of Jimmy's paws while Larry and
Laura grab hold of Jerry's paws, before they begin to pull the two jackals, but
they are still stuck under the log. On the other side, Aristotle is also pushing
on the two jackal brothers, but like before, nothing happens.]
Larry: This isn't working, Bob, what do we do now?
Bob: I'm not sure, Larry, pulling them didn't work, and neither did pushing.
Junior: I know, how about we dig at the ground underneath them?
Jimmy: What?!? How's that going to work, Junior?
Junior: Think about it, guys, if we dig underneath you two, then we'll make the
trench big enough for you to get through.
Aristotle: Yes, good thinking, Junior! That's determination right there!
Jimmy: Well, okay.
[Soon, Bob, Larry, Junior, and Laura then begin digging at the ground underneath
Jimmy and Jerry, in order to make the trench bigger. After a few minutes have gone
by, parts of the ground in the trench have been dug up, making the space a lot
bigger. This time, Jimmy and Jerry are able to pass under the log without any
problems, now that the ground in the trench had been made bigger. Aristotle then
flies under the log after that before rejoining the six animals.]
Jimmy: Well, I'll be, it actually worked, Jerry, Junior's plan actually worked.
Jerry: Yeah, Jimmy, because of determination!
[Now that the animals have been able to cross the trench, they then resume their
trek through the forest to try and find the snipe. This time, the small group
come across a gorge, but they are able to cross the gorge by way of a fallen
tree that is strong enough to support their weight. After making it to the other
side of the gorge, the group continues onwards once again. 10 minutes have soon
passed, but the group still have not found any sign of the snipe. With that,
they decide to take a little rest before resuming their journey.]
Larry: I'm beat, we've traveled so many miles, and we still haven't found the
Aristotle: Trust me, Larry, I've been to this area many times, and I can tell
you that I've seen snipes here before.
Jimmy: Can we eat now? All that traveling has made me hungry.
Jerry: Me too.
[The two Jackals then begin to reach into their bags in order to get some food,
not realizing that the snipe from earlier is now watching them while hiding
in the underbrush. The snipe looks on hungrily before he sees the two jackals
take out two sandwiches from their bags. Jimmy is about to take a bite from
his sandwich, when the snipe quickly flies out and snatches the sandwich out
from his paw, so Jimmy ends up biting his paw instead.]
Jimmy: *pained* YEEEEEEEEEEOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Jerry: *giggles* Hey, Jimmy, you're supposed to bite the sandwich, not your hand.
[Jerry is also about to take a bite from his sandwich, before the snipe flies out
again and snatches the sandwich from his paw as well. Jerry also ends up biting
his paw as a result.]
Jerry: *pained* YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Jimmy: *laughs* Boy, Jerry, I've heard of a 'finger sandwich' but this is ridiculous!
Junior: Wait, guys, did you see that?
Jimmy: *rubbing his hurt paw* See what, Junior? We didn't see anything.
Aristotle: I think Junior is right, that must've been the snipe that stole your
[This time, the group is prepared for when the snipe comes out from his hiding
place. Jimmy and Jerry both pull out their nets, preparing to catch the snipe.
The animals then notice the underbrush start shaking, as a sign that they have
found where the snipe is hiding.]
Jimmy: Let's get him, Jerry! Charge!
[Jimmy and Jerry both charge towards the underbrush before bringing their nets
downward, but the snipe quickly flies away before the two jackals could catch
him. The snipe then flies up into a tree after that.]
Aristotle: Jimmy! Jerry! Don't scare him!
Jimmy: We'll teach that thief to steal our food, won't we, Jerry?
Jerry: You got it, Jimmy!
Snipe: Please! Don't hurt me!
Snipe: I didn't mean to steal your sandwiches, I was just hungry! I hadn't had
a bite to eat since last night!
Jimmy: Well, how do you think we feel?!?
Junior: Jimmy, please! *to the snipe* We're really sorry for scaring you like
that, but when we heard that you were in our part of the forest, we had to try
and find you.
Snipe: You wanted to find me?
Bob: Yes, last night, we each heard a squawking sound while we were asleep. It
was thanks to our friend, Aristotle, that we found out that there was a snipe
in the forest.
Larry: What's your name?
Sterling: I'm Sterling.
Jimmy: Sterling? That's a strange name for a snipe.
Junior: I'm Junior, these are my friends, Bob, Larry, Laura, Jimmy, and Jerry.
Jimmy: *to Jerry* I wonder if snipes taste like chicken?
Jerry: I dunno.
[However, the two jackals end up getting elbowed in the gut by Bob. Junior then
turns his gaze towards Sterling after that.]
Junior: You'll have to excuse Jimmy and Jerry, Sterling, they're always hungry.
Sterling: They're not the only ones, I would've starved if I hadn't eaten their
Aristotle: Still, Sterling, you should know by now that you shouldn't take things
that don't belong to you.
Sterling: Yes, I know that now.
Laura: There's one thing I need to know, why are you out here in the forest all
[Sterling then droops his head rather sadly after that, which confuses the
animals. Because of that, Sterling has no other choice but to explain to the
small group about his predicament, as they gather around.]
Sterling: The truth is, last night, my flock and I were chased in the darkness
of the night by a black wolf. We flew as fast as we could to escape, but I got
left behind because I couldn't fly fast enough. I was lucky that that wolf did
not even see me, but now I don't even know where my flock is now. I miss my mama.
[After Sterling finishes his story, Bob, Larry, Junior, Laura, Jimmy, Jerry,
and Aristotle can't help but feel sorry for Sterling, all because he got
separated from his family. Junior then turns his gaze towards Jimmy and
Jerry after that.]
Junior: Well, do you guys have anything to say now?
Jimmy: *sadly* You're right, Junior. And to think that we even thought about
wanting to eat that poor defenseless little snipe too.
Jerry: *sadly* Yeah.
Bob: Hey, wait a minute, guys. Sterling said something about a black wolf
chasing after him and his flock. Doesn't that sound kind of familiar?
Larry: Hey, yeah, Bob, now what black wolf do we know that would want to chase
after other animals?
Aristotle: If Juodas is stalking after you and your flock, Sterling, then that
means that you'll be in grave danger if Juodas catches you.
Sterling: Juodas? Is that the wolf that chased us?
Aristotle: Yes, trust us, Sterling, there's no telling what will happen if you
or your flock get caught by Juodas.
Jimmy: This doesn't make any sense, we've come to find a snipe to take back and
show the others, but now we have to save him from danger.
Larry: I think it's a good idea, Jimmy. Besides, Sterling would really appreciate
it if we helped him find his flock.
Bob: That's right, Larry. After all, God would want us to help others in trouble.
Aristotle: Exactly, we're determined to help Sterling find his flock again.
Sterling: Determined? Really?
Laura: Right, Sterling, we'll help you find your family.
Junior: Just like when we were determined to try and find you.
Sterling: Oh, thank you, everyone. It makes me so happy that you'd want to help
Bob: No problem, Sterling, we'd be glad to offer our services to help you back
to your flock.
[Once the group have finished resting up, they then resume their journey, but
this time, to help Sterling find his flock again. This time, the group starts
trudging on through a large meadow in the middle of the forest.]
Larry: This is pretty nice scenery, I have to admit.
Jerry: Uh-huh, it is nice.
Jimmy: You know what? I think I know the perfect song for an occasion like
[Jimmy then picks up a nearby branch off the ground, which he intends to use
as a marching stick.]
Jimmy: [singing] We're on the upward trail, We're on the upward trail, Singing
as we go Scouting bound. We're on the upward trail, We're on the upward trail,
Singing, Singing, ev'rybody singing, Scouting bound.
Jerry: Yeah, sing it, Jimmy! Now let's all sing!
All: [singing] We're on the upward trail, we're on the upward trail, Singing
as we go Scouting bound. We're on the upward trail, We're on the upward trail,
Singing, Singing, ev'rybody singing, Scouting bound.
[The group still continue traveling across the meadow, while still singing
the song to pass the time. Deeper within the forest, Juodas is still trying
to find where the snipes had flown off to, without any success.]
Juodas: Curses! Those feathered delicacies have to be around here somewhere!
It's bad enough that I couldn't catch that lone snipe, but now I can't even
find the whole flock!
[However, after a few seconds, Juodas suddenly hears the sound of singing
from a little ways off. Juodas then follows the sound of where the singing
is coming from, until he is able to spot the Veggie Animals trudging through
another area of the forest, with Aristotle leading the way and Sterling
also flying alongside Aristotle.]
Juodas: Ah-ha! There's that little snipe again! And this time, he's got those
multicolored fuzz balls with him! You won't escape this time, you little hors
[Soon, the group have finished singing while still traveling through the forest
to try and finding Sterling's flock.]
Sterling: Wow, this is fun! I had no idea how much fun it is to travel and sing
with such good friends like you!
Larry: Well, we're your friends, Sterling.
Bob: Larry is right, Sterling, that's what friends do, they help each other out.
Laura: We've traveled far, but there's still no sign of Sterling's flock anywhere.
Aristotle: Yes, but we mustn't give up, not as long as we have determination on
Sterling: You're right, Aristotle, I'm determined to find my flock soon enough!
Aristotle: Exactly, Sterling. But just to be safe, all of you stay here, while I
go on ahead to see if I can find the flock. I'll be back if I find anything, okay?
[With that, Aristotle then spreads out his wings before he takes to the air and
flies further on through the forest to find Sterling's flock. Bob, Larry, Junior,
Laura, Jimmy, Jerry, and Sterling can only watch on until Aristotle disappears
off in the distance as he flies further through the forest.]
Larry: You think he'll be alright, Bob?
Bob: Larry, has Aristotle ever steered us wrong?
Larry: Uh, I don't think so.
Bob: So, I'm positive that he'll be just fine.
Sterling: I just wish that I could've gone with him. After all, it's my flock that
I'm looking for.
Junior: We know, Sterling, but Aristotle wants you to be safe because he cares about
you the same way he cares for us.
Sterling: You're right, Junior. Aristotle cares about me enough to worry about my
[Junior then smiles at Sterling while gently stroking Sterling's soft feathers with
one paw. Sterling smiles back at Junior after a few seconds.]
Sterling: Thank you for all that you and your friends have done for me, Junior. I
would've been lost if you haven't come along to this part of the forest.
Juodas: (Off-screen) No, thank YOU!
[The six animals and Sterling become alert and shocked when they hear this familiar
voice in the area. They then look over to see Juodas stalking towards them.]
All: *shocked* JUODAS!
Juodas: Thank you for finding that little side dish for me. This little snipe is just
the perfect snack to hold me over until dinner. *chuckles sadistically*
Jimmy: *angrily* Hey! I may be hungry, but even I consider than an insult!
Jerry: *angrily* Yeah, me too!
[Sterling is surprised when he sees that Jimmy and Jerry are now defending him, despite
the fact that the two jackals once considered eating him earlier.]
Juodas: After I eat this little snipe, I'm coming after all of you!
Larry: You'll have to catch us first!
[The six animals then run as fast as they can to try and escape Juodas, at the same time
that Sterling also takes to the air as well. Juodas then chases after the small group
through the forest. Sterling suddenly ends up running into a tree branch, which causes
him to crash down to the ground in pain. The animals become horrified when they see
Juodas: *cackles* You're mine at last, little snipe! Dinnertime!
[Fortunately, Junior is able to grab hold of the branch that Jimmy is holding, breaks
it in half, then quickly jumps between Sterling and Juodas, before sticking the broken
half of the branch between Juodas's jaws, preventing him from trying to bite down on
Sterling, saving him.]
Bob: Smart thinking, Junior!
Sterling: Thanks, Junior!
Junior: My pleasure, Sterling, friends never leave friends behind.
[Juodas is now able to remove the branch from his jaws, before glaring angrily at the
small group after that.]
Juodas: This time, there are no escapes!
[However, before Juodas can pounce on any of the animals, everyone suddenly hears a
bunch of loud squawking sounds from off in the distance. Everyone then looks over in
time to see a huge flock of snipes start flying to the sight of the battle, with Aristotle
flying alongside them. Sterling becomes especially happy when he sees that Aristotle was
successful in locating his flock.]
Sterling: *happily* It's my flock! Aristotle has found them!
Bob: See, Sterling? We knew that Aristotle wouldn't let you down.
[Before Juodas can react, he suddenly finds himself overrun by all of the snipes as they
begin pecking at him rapidly. Even Sterling flies in and joins in the fight, also pecking
Juodas as well. Realizing that he is outnumbered, Juodas then starts running away from the
fight, not intending to take any more pecking from the snipes. After Juodas has left, the
animals start cheering, happy that Juodas has been driven off again, as well as the fact
that Sterling's flock has been found again. Sterling is even more happier when he sees
that his flock has returned, especially his mother.]
Mother Snipe: Sterling, my son! I was so worried about you!
Sterling: Mama, I was so worried! I thought I would never see you again!
Mother Snipe: Thank you all for finding my son and bringing him back. I don't know where
I'd be without him.
Bob: You're welcome, Mrs. Snipe.
Larry: Yeah, consider it an act of determination on our part.
Aristotle: That's right, Larry. As the bible says, "I can do all things through Christ
which strengthen me. Philippians 4:13."
Sterling: *confused* Huh?
Bob: What he means, Sterling, is that God gives us determination to do the things that
we need to do.
Jimmy: Yeah, like when we found you and helped you find your flock again.
Sterling: So you're saying that God helped me to become determined enough to find my
Aristotle: *nodding* Exactly.
Sterling: Wow! There really is a lot more to God than I ever thought possible!
Mother Snipe: Come, Sterling, it's time to go.
Sterling: Wait, Mama, I need to say goodbye to my new friends first!
[Mother Snipe then nods, before Sterling walks up to Bob, Larry, Junior, Laura, Jimmy,
Jerry, and Aristotle, preparing to say goodbye to them.]
Sterling: Goodbye, Bob, thank you for helping me to learn about God. You're the nicest
Red Panda I ever met.
Bob: Why thank you, Sterling.
Sterling: Larry, I will never forget your optimism and your light-hearted moods.
Larry: Awwww, don't mention it, Sterling.
Sterling: And Junior, you're the best friend I've ever met. And you too, Laura.
Junior: You're the best friend we ever met too, Sterling.
Laura: We'll miss you, Sterling.
Sterling: Jimmy, Jerry, you guys are the funniest Jackals I ever met. Thank you
for not trying to eat me.
Jimmy: Oh come on, Sterling, no need to bring it up. After all, I heard that snipe
meat is rather gamey anyway.
Jerry: Yeah, it's gamey. See you later, Sterling.
Sterling: And Aristotle, thank you for helping to find my flock.
Aristotle: No problem at all, Sterling.
Sterling: Goodbye, everyone! And thanks for everything!
[After rejoining with his mother and all of the other snipes again, Sterling then
waves goodbye to the Veggie Animals, before all of the snipes then spread their
wings and take to the sky again. The snipes then begin to fly away into the sky,
while the Veggie Animals say goodbye to them. From the sky, one of Sterling's
feathers comes loose before it flutters down and lands in front of Junior's feet,
as he picks it up.]
Jimmy: How about that? A snipe feather.
Laura: Maybe we didn't need to catch a snipe after all.
Junior: Yeah, this feather might be just the proof that we need.
Bob: Come on, guys, let's go home.
[Soon, Bob, Larry, Junior, Laura, Jimmy, Jerry, and Aristotle then begin to go
back the way they came, after having accomplished their expedition. Back in the
main forest, Bob, Larry, Junior, Laura, Jimmy, and Jerry have now met up with
Mr. Nezzer, Scooter, and Petunia again, telling them about their journey in
looking for the snipe.]
Junior: And after that, they flew off together again.
Petunia: Was the trip dangerous, Larry?
Larry: It wasn't all that dangerous, Petunia. Except for the fact that we did
have to dodge Juodas to save the snipe.
Mr. Nezzer: But where are the snipes now?
Aristotle: Who knows? Maybe they're far from here by now.
Scooter: I still say that the existence of snipes is a load of blatherskite.
Junior: Then how about this feather, Scooter?
[Junior then holds out Sterling's feather to show the others, which surprises
Petunia, Mr. Nezzer, and Scooter. Scooter is especially surprised when he sees
this snipe feather.]
Scooter: I don't believe it! A genuine snipe feather! But how?!?
Junior: Let's just say that it's a gift from a good friend.
[With that, Junior then looks up at the sky after that, before the camera moves
upwards into the sky. The scene then switches to the entire flock of snipes,
especially Sterling, as they fly across the sky while squawking happily. While
flying, Sterling then looks directly at the viewers before winking at them,
before he and his flock fly directly towards the direction of the sun, before
the screen goes dark, ending the episode.]
