[chicken clucks]

Gah! Whoa! [grunts]

Upsy daisy, Gramma!

family! Follow the sound of my voice!

[Gramma] Where the
heck are you takin' us?

This way now, not much further!

[Cricket] Okay! Take
off your blindfolds!


Welcome to the best
family eatery in Big City!


[folksy music plays]

- Yeah! - Yeah!

Isn't it wonderful?

Yes, but what are we doing here,

We're eatin' dinner!
And I'm buyin'!

Tonight we feast like kings.

- Wow! - Well, hot chow!

Table for five please,

Sure thing! We'll buzz you
when your table's ready.

I'm sorry,
did you say you're buying dinner?

Well, yeah. Every kid dreams

about taking their
family out for a nice meal!

But no ordinary
kid can pull it off.

Cricket Green ain't no ordinary kid!

- You got that right!
- You got that right.

I don't care who's paying for dinner

as long as it ain't me!

That's mighty kind of you,

- [buzzing] - Huh?

It's a bomb! Hit the deck!


Oh, hello,
you must be my table for five!

My name's Gina,
and I'll be your waitress.

But think of me
more as your friend!

Well, lead the way,
Gina ol' pal.

wait! Am I really the only one who thinks

Cricket paying for dinner is,
heh, completely weird?

[all] Yep!

Good. I'm glad I'm the
only one who feels this way.

So, what can I get you today?

Look at all the choices!

With all these options,
we'll never decide!

We don't have to decide!

We'll order it all!

put us down 15 racks of ribs,

three dozen chicken tenders,

five crispy chocolate

a kiddy pool of popcorn shrimp,

four dozen crispy eggs,
scrambled and dry, please.

And what the heck,
a trough of crispy seasoned french fries!

Anything else for ya?

You want something special,
big guy?

I'm not hungry.

because am I wrong,

or have you been staring at that
bacon cheeseburger since we sat down?

It has... caught my eye.

And this guy will have
one bacon cheeseburger!

no! Cancel that! No bacon cheeseburger!

he's just fussy 'cause he hasn't eaten yet.

- He'll take two!
- Cricket, stop!

Three it is! Wanna go for four,

This doesn't make any sense!

We can't afford all this food!

How could Cricket
pay for all of it?!

are you going to be like this all night?

Cricket's trying to
do something nice.

Can you get on board?

Thank you, Mother.

[sighs] You're right.

I'm sorry, son.

I'll take one bacon

All righty-tight-tighty then!

Your food will be out in a jiff!

There we go. Enjoy yourself!

Hear hear for Cricket!

Provider of crispy
foods and goodwill!

- To Cricket! - To Cricket!

To Cricket!

Ah, what the heck. To me!

- Ha ha! - Okay!

- [Cricket] Oh, wow!
- [Bill burps]

What a meal!

I'm in a world of shrimpy bliss.

And how's this all tasting,

It tasted great! But
you already knew that,

didn't ya, Gina, you sly dog!

Anybody in the mood
for some dessert?

Ohh, dessert sounds good.

What do y'all say?

I couldn't eat another bite!

I'm gonna have to pass on the sug',

Boy, y'all ate so much,

it looks like you forgot
to save room for dessert.

Heh heh. Uh, hey, Gina.


Oh! You got it! Coming right up!

What'd you order, son?

Oh, just a li'l ice cream.

That sounds excellent, brother.

I hope you enjoy it.


Well, I hope we all enjoy it.

We're gonna have to.

Whaddaya mean by that, son?

and your one hour starts... now.


Mmmm, welp! Let's dig in!

Come on, Dad,
you can't eat ice cream without a spoon.

This is how you were planning
on paying for everything?

Cricket, if this was your plan,
why didn't you tell us?

We're too full!

I didn't want you holding back on dinner!

there's always room for ice cream!

Now I've heard enough of this.

I'm just gonna pay for dinner

and get us out of... this.

Cricket, where's my money?

Well, I knew you wouldn't go
through with my brilliant plan

to treat y'all if you
knew all the steps,

so I replaced all your
money with Cricket Bucks!

They have no monetary value.

Boy, have you lost your mind?!

All we have to do is
eat some ice cream.

Ice cream's not a problem,
it's a treat!

Looks like Cricket's left
us with no other option!

So we're gonna have to
eat our way outta this mess.

That's the spirit!

All right, everyone, dig in.

I've found with a slow
and methodical approach

any challenge can be overcome.

It won't work,
Tilly! We gotta eat fast, too!

Oh, right!

Hm? B-b-brain freeze!

Forget the spoon. I
only require my fists!

Yah! Yah! Yah!

There ain't a frosted
treat in the world

too tough for Alice Gree...

- Aaaah! - Yeah, I'm out.

Ugh, I need a breather.

Okay, just means more for me!

Ahhhh... huh?

[thinking] Huh. That's odd.

My body can't seem to
eat any more ice cream.

Hmm. If we can't
finish all this ice cream,

that means I didn't actually
treat my family to a meal.

Hmm... Oh! Gina!

Gene-meister! Gina-tina-bobina.

Hey, since we're friends,

you're cool with cutting us some
slack on this challenge, right?

We don't need to eat it all.

No one is exempt from
the Official Crispy Rules.

But you're just saying this as a formality,
right, buddy?

[menacing] No one
breaks the Crispy rules.

[nervous chuckle] Yeah, I know.

Just seein' if you knew.

Okay, have fun.

Yeesh. Some friend.

[Tilly] Cricket? Were
you talking to someone?

I can't hear anything on account
of Gramma's moans of agony.

[mumbling moans of agony]

curse this Crispy's rule book!

[gasp] Rules! That's it!

If there's this many rules,

there's bound to be a
loophole somewhere!

Let's see, let's see. Aha!

"If the sundae is contaminated,

then it must be thrown out!"

- Bingo bango! - [fly buzzing]

[menacing giggle] Perfect.

[fly] Aaaahh!

Yes! I mean, uh,
excuse me, Gina!

I'm oh so afraid that I have
found a fly in our sundae!

Hmm. Yes,
this sundae is contaminated.

- I'll take care of it right away!
- [snaps]

Hup hup hup hup!

Hup hup hup hup!

I can't believe it,
we're freeee!

- [rhythmic clapping] - Huh?

♪ A fly died in your sundae ♪

♪ But stay right
where you're sitting ♪

♪ We're gonna start
your challenge ♪

♪ Back at the beginning! ♪

You see, when a Crispy's Sundae
Challenge has been contaminated,

it is immediately replaced
with a new sundae.

Sorry for the inconvenience,

Here's a coupon for 5% off
your next meal at Crispy's.

That's it. I give up.

- Yep.
- I can't do this, either.

Son, I'm disappointed in you.

Wait! Sure, my plan was stupid,
and I'm sorry for that,

but I just wanted to treat
my family to a free meal!

Isn't that a nice thing?

You call this a nice thing?

Everybody's miserable!

Don't throw up, don't throw up.


C'mon, Gramma, let's go.

Just leave me here to die.

This is all because you
tried to take a shortcut,

but there's just no such
thing as a free meal!

Speaking of which,
I'm gonna go talk to the manager

and figure out how we're
gonna pay for dinner.

Dad, I...

nice things in life must be earned.

How will you earn this?

How will I earn this?

Come on, champ,
you'll never finish in time.

Throw in the towel.

Uh, did you hear me,
bucko? It's quittin' time.

- No! - Wha-whuh?

I came here to give
my family a meal.

And now it's time to earn it.



[loud chomping]

Look at him go!

What do you mean
you don't have money?!

You're a bank!

Hey, would you be interested

in purchasing this
fine leather jacket?

Or how about a
motorcycle? Or my trailer?

I've got a real nice trailer!

Fancy these teeth, young man?

One of them is gold.

It's useless.

chanting] Eat that cream!

- Eat that cream!
- What is that?

- Ooooh! - Wow!

Excuse me, pardon me.

Now what in the world is...?

No, it can't be.

Is that... Cricket?

[chomps, groans]

That boy is destroying himself!

Son, you don't have to do this!

Yeah, we'll find another way!

Kid, listen to your family!

If you explode,
it'll be horrible publicity for Crispy's!

I'll knock 50... No,
75% off your meal

if you stop right now!

[grunts] My. Family.

Eats! Freee!

Aaah yaaah!

[ethereal singing]


- [cheering] - You did it!

It... it's not possible!

No one's ever finished the
Crispy's Sundae Challenge!



Easy, easy now. We got ya, son.


Well, now we got ya!

I have to hand it to ya.

You really earned that meal.

Ya done good, boy!

You really pulled through,

You're my hero, brother.

Eh, thanks, everyone.

And I'd just like to say...


Heh, s'cuse me.
