Episode Summary

EDIT
To the Ship! To the Ship!
AIRED:
When Dr. Nitwhite makes a "discovery" that the word lip is the only word in the English language to end with the "ip" sound, he astounded upon hearing the title of the new book that Lionel is reading -- The Adventures of Mississippi Skip and His Pirate Ship, by Ipswich Clipspringer the Fourth (a fictional author.) As Nitwhite runs off to do some fine-tuning, Lionel heads off to read his book. He and Leona, as well Walter and Clay Pigeon are captivated by the tale, about a pirate captain and his crew who finds buried treasure. Lionel is inspired to play a game of pirates, but doesn't allow Leona and Clay Pigeon to play because there were never any girl pirates. He learns something new, however, when Theo shows up with a book called The Life of Anne Bonney and an honest-to-goodness female pirate comes swashbuckling out of the book.moreless
