Brush! 


>> NARRATOR: Dani and her mom have arrived at the dentist’s office!

>> MOM: Dani, you wait here while I go sign us in.  Maybe you could look at the fish in that big tank! Or .. play with some of the toys, or read one of the books over there?

>> DANI: [SIGH] Ok mom.  [SFX listlessly flipping through some books]

FISH

Psssst. Over here, kid. 


DANI

Are you... Are you talking?  You’re a TALKING fish?


FISH

Maybe. I heard a little rumor that you're feeling nervous. Thought I could give you some advice. Listen up, kid. 

SEEN HUNDREDS OF KIDS PASS THROUGH THESE HALLS. 

BABIES, TODDLERS, EVEN TEENS, SEEN THEM ALL. 

THEY COME TO THE DENTIST WHENEVER THEY NEED TO GET THEIR TEETH CLEAN. DO YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN? 


DANI

Maybe? But I'm still confused how a fish can talk! 


FISH

DON'T WORRY DANI. 

YOU'RE GONNA BE FINE, 

YOU'LL EVEN HAVE A GOOD TIME. 

FEELING NERVOUS IS OK. 

IT’S YOUR BODIES' WAY TO TELL YOU 

YOU'RE TRYING SOMETHING NEW. 


SO LISTEN UP KID. TAKE MY ADVICE. 

YOU ARE BRAVE, YOU ARE STRONG, 

SO DON'T THINK TWICE. 

YOU WALK IN THAT OFFICE AND YOU TELL THE DENTIST YOU BRUSH EVERY DAY, With Chompers! LISTEN TO WHAT I SAY. 


DANI

Yeah! 


FISH

Give it up for my fish chorus!

AND I SHOULD KNOW, 

BECAUSE I'M THE FISH AT THE DENTIST. 

SEE KIDS LIKE YOU EVERY DAY 

AND WHAT I SAY IS TRUE - 

THEY DID IT, SO CAN YOU. 


FISH AND DANI

DON'T/I WON'T WORRY DANI. 

WHAT'S BEEN UNKNOWN ALL ALONG 

CAN'T STAY UNKNOWN FOR LONG. 

YOU'VE/I'VE TRIED NEW THINGS BEFORE, 

OPENED UP NEW DOORS AND

FOUND NEW WORLDS TO EXPLORE. 


DANI

Wow, thanks, Fish! I feel a lot better.


FISH

Anytime, kid. 


DANI

One last thing - how did you learn how to talk... And how to sing?


FISH

I'll save that story for when you come back next time. Good luck, kid. 

 

>> NARRATOR: That’s the best pep talk from a talking singing fish I’ve ever heard! But now it’s time for you to …
