  • Welcome to Plum Landing.

  • Hello, earthlings.

  • Calling earthlings!

  • Come in, earthlings.

  • Come in.

  • Come in, come in.

  • Hey, Plum.

  • Hey, Brad.

  • Hi, Clem.

  • Are you ready for one last mission?

  • I was testing my desert game and I'm missing this.

  • "Sturt's Desert Pea?"

  • Plum, one thing you should know about earthlings is

  • we don't eat peas for dessert.

  • Not a "dessert" pea, Brad.

  • A "desert" pea.

  • Oh.

  • Oh, desert!

  • As in where we're standing.

  • Got it.

  • Actually, as you can see, I have a picture of the plant,

  • but I can't find a picture of its roots anywhere.

  • This book, Electrifying Secrets of the Desert Pea?

  • No pictures.

  • So, can you get me one?

  • A photograph?

  • Sure.

  • Absolute-o-rama.

  • Over and out.

  • So, where would we find a desert pea?

  • There!

  • Come on...

  • Stop!

  • We don't have to kill it.

  • She just wants a photograph.

  • Let's dig around it and then put the dirt back.

  • But we don't have a shovel.

  • Thanks, Plink.

  • Okay, one scoop...

  • Two scoops...

  • (panting)

  • 287 scoops...

  • Owie.

  • That is one deep root.

  • Step aside, sister.

  • I'll take it from here.

  • Sheesh louise.

  • Why does a plant need such a long root anyhow?

  • Unless it's actually an underground spycam

  • operated by an evil doctor guy

  • who wants to mind-control all the ants.

  • Or maybe...

  • See how the ground is darker at the bottom?

  • That's because it's wetter.

  • So maybe it needs an extra long root

  • in order to reach down and get water.

  • There's hardly any rain here, remember?

  • That makes sense.

  • You know, that root is almost as long as you.

  • (camera snaps)

  • Nice.

  • Calling Plum.

  • Did you get it?

  • We got the picture.

  • Yahoo!

  • It's longer than I thought.

  • So listen, the other kids wanted to sleep out tonight,

  • so I'm sending a bubble to take you to the campsite.

  • Watch for it. Bye.

  • Hurry.

  • We have to get the dirt back or the plant will die.

  • I'm on it.

  • Go, go, go, go!

  • Hurry.

  • Fantastic job in the desert, guys.

  • You found the lake, you found the desert pea,

  • you found the dormant shrimp, you took a million photographs--

  • well, 47-- so thank you, thank you.

  • Thank you for letting us camp out tonight.

  • This place is just awesome.

  • Awesome and cold.

  • I know, right?

  • It was 110 during the day and now it's just...

  • (shivers)

  • 50 degrees?

  • Holy moly.

  • You need one of these.

  • (cheering)

  • (laughs)

  • I'll send your bubbles first thing in the morning.

  • Good night!

  • Good night.

  • No one snores, right?

  • Sleep tight.

Welcome to Plum Landing.
