Season 5 / Episode 8 and airs on 24 September 2017 10:35
Four children compete in a series of games in a bid to win back the jewels stolen by the pirate Captain Sinker and her hapless shipmates Cook and Line.
The ship is a mess and Cook and Line are hiding from Captain Captain because they are fed up with doing all the work. When Captain Captain demands that they tidy the place up, Cook and Line decide instead to capture a couple of Swashbucklers and turn them into their new mini pirate crew who will do all the chores for them. Unfortunately, Mini Cook and Line are just as clumsy as the real Cook and Line, and soon the cabin is a complete mess.
Captain Captain is surprised to find that her whistle has been replaced with a small fish. When she calls on Cook and Line to explain, they reveal that they took her whistle to give it a good clean, but the precious whistle, which has been in the Captain's family for generations, ended up in the slop. The captain blows the whistle and soon discovers that it doesn't whistle anymore. She demands the pirates get her whistle whistling again. Instead, they try to convince Captain Captain that whistles are so last season, and they offer her a selection of possible replacements including a duck whistle, a toy trumpet, a kazoo and a harmonica. Whilst they are lots of fun, none of them can replace her precious old whistle.
Captain Captain is in her usual competitive mood. She is determined not to lose any of the jewels today. Her crew, Cook and Line, on the other hand, are not nearly as focused and don't understand why Captain Captain always wants to win. They are far happier playing their own made-up games just for fun. She tells them not to be so silly and to focus on beating the Swashbucklers. Later on, Captain Captain is reeling from having already lost a jewel. She hates losing. Cook and Line point out that it's not all about winning. Captain Captain is flabbergasted and points out in her handbook where it clearly says that a pirate must never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever lose, ever! But, despite her determination, she continues to lose against the Swashbucklers, so Cook and Line put together a 'How to be a good loser' training camp.
Captain Captain, one of the meanest and greediest pirates ever, is shocked to find Cook and Line collecting gold from the Swashbucklers to help the 'Save the Sea Monster' charity. It's all the idea of Little Sea Monster, a visiting guest from Justin's House. Captain Captain insists that pirates TAKE treasure, they do not give it away. She tries to grab the treasure for herself but Little Sea Monster is too quick and escapes with the loot. But Captain Captain is determined to get her hands on that treasure.
Captain Captain is determined to keep a hold of all the jewels today but during a surprise jewel inspection she discovers that Cook and Line have lost the blue jewel. Rules are rules, and she must have all the jewels available to give to the Swashbucklers if they win. She commands Cook and Line to find the missing blue jewel at once. They decide to empty all the slop from the Ship's Mess to look for it.
Cook and Line have been practicing their pirate skills so they can beat the Swashbucklers, so Captain Captain is shocked when the silly pirates enter completely tangled up in rope. Cook and Line explain that they have been practicing their knot-tying skills, and surprisingly they are terrible at it! Captain Captain gives them her own Little Book of Nautical Knots to practice their knot-tying skills. Since they can't tie any of the knots in the book, they make up their own knot - and end up tied together and completely stuck!
Cook is reading his favourite comic instead of paying attention to Captain Captain or doing any chores. The Captain angrily threatens to send him to the brig - the place where naughty pirates are locked up if they don't do everything their Captain tells them. Cook pretends to be worried but then goes back to reading his comic. Later on, Cook is still reading his comic instead of slopping out. This pushes the Captain too far and she commands him to go to the brig as punishment. It doesn't have the desired effect, though, as Cook just seems to be relaxing in the brig while Line does all the chores. Cook points out that if Line is naughty then perhaps Captain Captain will send him to the brig, and then he can take it easy too.
