Narrator: "The Ponyville Harbor is one of the busiest harbors on all of Equestria. It's where ships and animals alike are busy day and night, every day of the year.

But Poor Gustave le Grand never gets a nap! He never gets to sleep early, he works all the time! And his only company are the gulls who settle on him, so Gustave is always cranky."

Cheese Sandwich: "Ahoy there, Gustave!"

Narrator: "Cried Cheese Sandwich."

Gustave: "Where have you been?"

Narrator: "Snapped Gustave."

Cheese Sandwich: "And a good day to you, too, Captain."

Narrator: "Snips and Snails arrived for work, full of mischief."

Gustave: "Hurry up!"

Narrator: "Snapped Gustave."

Gustave: "I Haven't got all day!"

Snips: "You're no fun!"

Narrator: "Grumbled Snips."

Gustave: "You wouldn't be fun if you were stuck up here!"

Narrator: "Snapped Gustave."

Snips: "So that's why you're cranky."

Narrator: "Said Snips."

Snails: "You're lonely."

Narrator: "Said Snails."

Gustave: "I'm not!"

Narrator: "Gustave cranked."

Cheese Sandwich: "So, it's company you be needing?"

Narrator: "Said Cheese Sandwich."

Cheese Sandwich: "Reminds me of a lonely old Grand Banks Lighthouse keeper."

Gustave: "Not another one of your stories!"

Narrator: "Cried Gustave.."

Snips and Snails: "Oh, Please, Cheese Sandwich."

Narrator: "They chimed."

Snips and Snails: "We haven't heard it."

Cheese Sandwich: "Twas in the middle of a wee naughty storm."

Narrator: "Cheese Sandwich began."

Cheese Sandwich: "The likes of which you see once in a lifetime."

Narrator: "This made Gustave very cranky. So cranky, that he swung his arm around, and dropped the pipes onto the ground, instead of the boxes."

Gustave: "Whoops."

Narrator: "Said Gustave."

Cheese Sandwich: "You've blown the main now, matey!"

Narrator: "Said Cheese Sandwich.

The animals were trapped."

Snips and Snails: "You're gonna get into trouble!"

Narrator: "Sang Snips and Snails."

Narrator: "Hoity Toity was in his office, being measured for a new suit. When he heard the news, he left immediately for the harbor. Hoity Toity knew that any delay at the harbor could cause trouble."

Hoity Toity: "You have made a terrible mess, Gustave."

Narrator: "He said sternly."

Gustave: "I'm sorry, sir."

Narrator: "Gustave whispered."

Hoity Toity: "You animals will have to stay here tonight until Caramel clears up this mess in the morning."

Narrator: "Gustave's heart sank, as Cheese Sandwich uttered those fateful words..."

Cheese Sandwich: "This reminds me of a story.

It was a bitter cold winter. The brave little ship was stuck until the ice melted the next spring.

He barely made it round the cape. After a hundred scary days at sea without a scratch, he sailed into port, and crashed his bow about 15 feet from my own feet.

Luckily, no one was hurt."

Gustave: "Except my ears."

Narrator: "Wailed Gustave."

Narrator: "Cheese Sandwich spent all night telling tales of powerful storms, daring rescues, and brave little ships, and when the sun rose, he was still talking, and talking, and talking."

Gustave: "I can't take any more!"

Narrator: "Groaned Gustave.

Caramel arrived."

Caramel: "Hoity Toity sent me to help clear away this mess."

Narrator: "He puffed proudly.

Gustave was so glad the animals would be leaving soon, he forgot to be cranky."

Gustave: "I'll never misbehave again,"

Narrator: "He promised."

Gustave: "As long as I don't have to listen to any more of Cheese Sandwich's stories!"

Narrator: "And after Caramel, and the workmen had cleared the mess, Gustave worked hard all day. He carefully loaded the cargo, helped speed the animals on their way, and said 'please' and 'thank you'."

Spike: "This is new."

Narrator: "Puffed Spike.

But he had spoken too soon. Gustave couldn't help himself."

Pipsqueak: "It was nice while it lasted."

Narrator: "Said Pipsqueak.

And all the animals laughed,

but Gustave was still cranky!"
