Squiddly learns that some movie people are coming to the aquarium to film a picture and Squiddly wants to watch them film.
One of the actors in the film is dressed in an octopus costume and he quits after a scene in which he gets beat up. Squiddly walks in right after this and the director hires him. Squiddly is excited at first but then he gets beat up, poked with a spear, and then beat up again and he decides that show business is no business for him and goes back to his tank.
The Chief runs into Squiddly and asks him what he has been doing and Squiddly tells him that the movie people had hired him and the Chief decides that he wants the part. He puts on the costume and then he has the same issues that Squiddly did and tries to run from the actor.
