(Humming)>>POE: Safety can be fun, lots of fun.>>Huh? But–>>How, you ask? By playing safe, right, Iris?>>Okay. (Humming)>>Playing with a skip rope is fun, sure, but what if it’s windy?>>Whoa!

(Gasping) Oh, what are you doing?>>Well, since you asked, I was chosen to update the books for the Gloomsville Record Society.>>Really? That’s great.>>Well, thanks. I think I made a good choice.>>Me too. You’re going to do a great job. How’s it going so far?>>Finding new record breakers for theGloomsville Book ofRecordsis no simple task. I’m sorry. It’s not the biggest. (Croaking, then crash) I’m sorry, it’s not the smallest. I’m just, um, sorry.>>Just rest your weary bones, and I’ll pour you some freshly gloomed ice tea.>>Mm, my, that’s cool and refreshing. One moment, let me check something. Aha, you broke a record!

I can do that.>>Iris…>>Maybe you should– (Screeching) (Glass breaking) (Panting)>>No, sorry.>>I’m sure there’s a record in here I can break.>>I’m going to break a whole tonne of Gloomsville records. I just know it. World’s smallest jumbo shrimp? That’s confusing.>>I’m sure you’ll break something, Iris.>>Yes, well, let’s hope it’s not a limb.>>Um, will you help me find a record to break, Ruby?>>Of course.>>And I shall be present as I am the official Gloomsville record keeper.>>Perfect, this is going to be a piece of cake.>>How about this one, Iris? The record for balancing cantaloupes.>>That’s easy. (Laughing)>>While on a unicycle.>>No problem.>>On a tightrope.>>Got it.>>And whistling Mozart. ♪ In a tornado.>>Look what just won’t stop following me today.>>Whoa!>>Behave! (Crash)>>IRIS: I’m good!>>Congratulations, Misery! You have just broken the record for largest tornado wrangling.>>Huh?>>I’d like to thank my agent, my manager–>>Let’s try something else.>>And the high led content in my blood.>>Here’s something. World’s fastest pillow stuffer.>>Bring on the feathers.>>Right, hm. Ready? On your mark, get set, stuff! ♪>>And stop!>>Whoohoo!>>Wow, great job, Iris.>>Thanks.>>145, 145, 146. 147. I’m sorry, Iris, but you’re one pillow short.>>Oh!>>Hey, what’s up?>>I was just trying to break a record but I’m not having much luck.>>Oh, it’s okay. You’ll do it.>>SKULL BOY: Yeah, maybe I can help you. Ooh, ah, ah, choo!>>Oh, my, that was quite a sneeze. In fact, that is the most pillows ever moved by a single sneeze. Congratulations, Skull Boy. You just broke a record.>>What?>>I’d like to thank my agent, my manager, and my sensitive nasal cavity.>>I’m happy for you, Skull Boy, but it’s never going to happen for me. Oh.>>Wait a second, Iris. It’s way too soon to give up. Here’s something, the record for eating Gloomsville’s stinkiest cheese, Gorgonlimbergerzola. The record is 20 pounds.>>I can do that. I love cheese. (Retching) Ooh, I can’t do it. It’s too stinky.>>I’m sorry, Iris. (Coughing) Ruby, were you holding your breath this whole time?>>Yeah, stinky cheese, phew!>>Well, indeed, another record has been broken, longest breath held! Ha-ha, I’m rapidly filling this book. Thank you, Ruby.>>Ruby, I thought you were trying to help me.>>But, Iris–>>Oh, just never mind. There’s got to be a record in here I can break. Okay, okay, okay, stop me if you heard this one, okay? What do you get when you cross an ice cube and a cheetah?>>POE: What?>>Once cool cat. Get it? (Crickets chirping)>>I’m sorry, but that doesn’t break any records for the funniest joke.>>Well, you see, because ice is cold and a cheetah is a wild cat, and so–>>Yes, I understand but I’m afraid it still doesn’t qualify as a record-breaking joke. (Laughing)>>I just got it. (Laughing)>>See, Poe, it’s funny! It’s funny. Thanks, Ruby. (Laughing)>>I’m not convinced about the joke, but Ruby has such an infectious laugh! (Laughing) (Laughing) (Laughing)>>See? See? It’s a very funny joke.>>Joke? Did someone tell a joke?>>Oh, great laugh, Ruby.>>Oh, yes, Ruby definitely gets in the book for the most contagious laugh. (Laughing) Oh, mercy.>>Ruby, how could you?>>But I was just laughing at your joke.>>What’s going on anyway?>>Iris is having trouble breaking a record.>>Breaking a record? That’s easy.>>You see, Iris? That wasn’t so hard.>>That doesn’t quite count. Now, if you were to break 4,352 of those, then you would be successful in breaking the record for record breaking.>>That sounds expensive.>>Hey, is there anything in there for coolest guitar riff? ♪>>I just don’t get why I can’t break a record like everybody else!>>What?>>Maybe you’re giving me bad luck!>>Uh-huh, that’s it.>>Maybe I should try breaking a record without you around.>>I’m sorry, what?>>I don’t need you, Ruby!>>RUBY: Okay.>>Well, you didn’t make it for coolest, but you broke the record for loudest guitar solo. Good show. Did I miss something? ♪ (Sniffling) (Sighing)>>We’ve got to get Iris and Ruby back together.>>Yeah, it’s just not right. (Phone ringing)>>Good day.>>Scaredy, what do we do?>>About what? Ooh, is there something I did not realize I should panic about?>>Yes, it’s Iris and Ruby. We need to get them back together.>>Oh, that is scary. (Phone ringing)>>Hello?>>Skull Boy, what do we do about Ruby and Iris?>>Normally when there’s a problem, Ruby has everyone brainstorm.>>Brainstorm?>>Killer idea. We should storm our brains together.>>Misery is excellent with storms. (Phone ringing)>>Hello, 911? Did you get my message?>>Hello?>>Oh, hi. Uh, what’s going on?>>Hey, Misery, it’s a party line.>>Oh, I love a party.>>Frank, please focus.>>Sorry, Misery, we’re having a brainstorm session. My room in 10 minutes.>>Oh, that goes for the rest of you too.>>Oh.>>Oh. ♪>>Right, bit of a sticky wicket this. Now, if we want Iris to play ball with Ruby, we need a stiff upper lip and a lot of elbow grease.>>Thank goodness I’m related to a long line of generals or I wouldn’t have understood what I just said either.>>Shouldn’t we figure out how to get Ruby and Iris back together?>>Quite, quite, here’s the upchuck of the kit and some of the caboodle. Ruby shall be summoned to here. And Iris shall be summoned here. Odds and sods, no more. (Clicking tongue) Don’t you see, old sports, bangers and mash! Hah! Tea and crumpets? Ah, we’ll get them both to come to the great hall. That’s all I got.>>Hey, what if Len and I wrote a special tune just for them?>>Oh, yes, and we can make it a big musical extravaganza to show them the folly of their ways.>>Yeah, nothing brings people together like great music and killer special effects.>>That’s not an entirely awful idea. Better than using paint thinner to put out a grease fire. Trust me.>>Thanks, I think.>>Jolly good then.
