Season 03 Episode 18

Episode Title: "The Birthday Cruise."

Is that it?

Yep. Our weekly update
from Naomi.

"Dear Elena,
how's life in Avalor?

"This morning, a pod of whales
was racing my boat.

"Wish you could have
been here to see it.

"Anyway, say hi
to the guys for me.

Next stop: Satu!"

Wow, Naomi's
really seeing the world.

Princess Elena.

I have good news.

Julio Guzman
accepted your offer

to replace Naomi
on the Grand Council.


And you have a visitor.

May I present...

Me! Princess Chloe
of Norberg!


There's that famous
Norberg Squeeze.

I hope you like surprises.

I don't care
for them myself.

I like to know exactly
what's going to happen,

but other people
seem to enjoy them.

That's okay.
I love surprises.

Oh, good! Whew!

So what brings you
to Avalor?

My birthday!

Oh! Happy birthday!

No, it's not today, silly,
it's Thursday.

And I'm having the hugest,
most fantastic party ever,

so I wanted to come
and personally invite you.

- Uh, thank you.
- To plan it here in Avalor!

Come again?

You said
you love surprises.

But what about
your friends in Norberg?

Aren't they going
to feel left out?

May I tell you a secret?

Of course.

You're my only friend.

But you're so sweet.

That can't be true...
can it?

It's not like
I haven't tried,

and tried, and tried.

But it never winds up
working out,

and I have no idea why.

Not enough personal space?

No. I'm fine.

Oh, you mean you.

Someone did mention
that once.

But I think it's more than that.

I just wish I knew
how to make friends.

Huh. I have an idea.

It's a little friendship quiz.

I'll ask you a few questions,

and we'll see
if we can figure out

why you're having
such a tough time.

♪ What do you do
when you happen to meet ♪

♪ A stranger you want
to befriend on the street? ♪

♪ I share with them
every thought that I think ♪

♪ But when I turn 'round,
they are gone in a blink ♪

♪ Instead of just talking,
perhaps you should listen ♪

♪ To find out the great things
about them you're missing ♪

♪ So that is the key,
paying better attention ♪

♪ Well, there are a few
other things I could mention ♪

♪ What do you do
when you and a friend ♪

♪ Have different ideas
how to spend your weekend? ♪

♪ That's easy, I tell I them
my plan is the best ♪

♪ When they see I'm right,
they'll forget all the rest ♪

♪ Or maybe let them do the
thing they've been wishin' ♪

♪ Give them the choice,
and you'll get recognition ♪

♪ I'm sensing a trend
behind all these suggestions ♪

♪ There's one simple answer
to all of these questions ♪

♪ Friendship is giving ♪

♪ With love and compassion ♪

♪ Helping your friend up ♪

♪ If you see 'em crashin' ♪

♪ A friendship is formed
over time like a shiny pearl ♪

♪ Try being more caring ♪

♪ Just give it a whirl ♪

♪ What do you do when
there's someone in trouble ♪

♪ In need of assistance,
in need ♪

♪ On the double? ♪

♪ I won't keep hiding my head
in the sand now ♪

♪ Used to take off,
but I'll give 'em a hand now ♪

♪ I'm so glad to finally see ♪

♪ That you understand now ♪

♪ 'Cause friendship is giving ♪

♪ With love and compassion ♪

♪ Helpin' your friend up ♪

♪ If you see 'em crashin' ♪

♪ A friendship is formed
over time like a shiny pearl ♪

♪ By being more caring ♪

♪ And less overbearing ♪

♪ You'll soon be
the friendliest girl ♪

♪ If you just give it a whirl ♪

♪ If I just give it a whirl! ♪

I just realized I tried to
force you to throw a party for me.

I'm so sorry.
You do not have to do it.

I appreciate that.

But I'm happy to host
your birthday party.

And I know
just what to do.

So instead
of throwing you a huge party,

I decided to do something small
with a few of my friends.

That way you can talk to everyone
and really get to know them.

Sounds perfect
Who did you invite?

My friend Mateo,

Princess Valentina
of Paraíso,

and Princess Rebeca
of Galonia.

Oh, here we are.

Ready for your birthday bash
to begin?

Beyond ready!

Uh, why are we at the port?


- Happy Birthday, Chloe!
- Happy Birthday, Chloe!

We're going
on an all-day sailing cruise!


An all-day cruise?

Remind me again how long I can
sail before getting seasick?

Ten minutes, mum.
12 tops.

What are you waiting for?

Well, if a cruise will make
my new friends happy,

then a-sailing I will go.

Anchors aweigh!

Has anyone seen Chloe?

Here I am!

Are you all right?

Never been better!

I mean, maybe I'm a touch
nauseated, sweaty and dizzy,

but enough about me.

Princess Valentina.

What do you do
for fun in Paraíso?

I'm glad you asked,

Because I brought
my favorite party game.


Ooh, so sparkly!

Now, you stand there

and we hit
the ball back and forth

until one
of us wraps the rope

all the way
around the pole.

I'm not
the most athletic person,

but that sounds easy enough.

Except we can't
use our hands.

Wait. Then what
are we supposed to use?

Princess power kick!


Flip kick!

Ah! Ooh! Ah! Eep!

Kick it back!

Uh, uh, uh, uh...

Chloe high-kick! Aah!



Valentina victory!

Chloe! Are you okay?

Ow. I mean, wow!

I can't wait to play
another round of this game.

Just as soon
as someone unties me.

Maybe we can do something

a little less,
uh, competitive first.

Oh, how would you all
like to learn a new dance?

Dance? I love dancing.

I do the Norberg Jig
all the time back home.

A chair?

But I thought
we were dancing.

We are!

In Galonia, we do a dance

called the "Horah"
on special occasions.


Help me lift her up.

Lift me... Whoa!

Now you two
raise her up and down

while we dance around her.


Guess I should've mentioned
I'm scared of heights,

but yay!

Bouncing, too!

As if being on the boat
isn't bouncy enough?


I should
probably get down now.



Are you okay?!

Totally fine.
It was just a little spill.

That was
the best dance ever!

Making friends
is so much fun!

Let's do it again!

Or Mateo
can do something else.

Mateo, do something else.

In honor of Princess Chloe,

I now present a display
of Avaloran wizardry!

You're a... wizard?!

A Royal Wizard.

Oh, well,
please don't feel like

you have to go out of your way
just to entertain me.


♪ Today is your birthday ♪

♪ We're all here for you ♪

♪ So make a big wish ♪

♪ And it will come true ♪

- ♪ You're one more year older ♪
- Aah!

♪ And so we all say ♪

♪ We love you, dear Chloe ♪

- ♪ On your special day ♪
- Chihuleti!

♪ On your special day ♪


Was it something I conjured?

I'll go check on her.

Hey, Chloe.
What happened back there?

When I was eight,

a wizard performed
at my birthday party.

But she messed up
the spell

and turned us all
into cupcakes!

I've been scared
of magic ever since.

And desserts.

Why didn't you say
anything before?

I would've stopped

Everyone else seemed
to like it.

And I want to do
whatever they want.

Like we talked about.

And that's nice of you.

But are you
having a good time?

If I finally make some
friends, does it matter?

Hey, Chloe!
You have to check this out.

See, she wants
to show me something.


I've never seen
anything like it.

It's beautiful.

Oh, wow. What is that?

I don't know.
It just... appeared.

Magical fog?

That reminds me
of that old legend

about a cursed sea nymph.

I say we get a closer look.

What do you think Chloe,
should we go check it out?

What was her name?


What was that, Chloe?

Oh, it's nothing.

Let's do it!
Full speed ahead!

All right!

Hey, you want me to show you
how to steer the boat?

Of course I do!


What's happening?

Turn the boat around!

I'll give us a magical boost.

Brace yourselves,


Cacha... Oh!

My tamborita!

There's something ahead!

- Oh!
- Aah!

We hit land?

According to the map,

there's not supposed to be
an island anywhere near here.

Ooh, let's explore it!

Before we do anything,
we need to check the hull

to make sure it's not damaged.

Guys? I think we should
probably all wait on the boat.

Or maybe even leave.

But we won't get anywhere
until the storm passes.

Where's your sense
of adventure?

Right here.
Just jumping at the chance

to explore
a deserted, spooky island.

Who knows what surprises
hidden on it.

And there's nothing I love
more than surprises!

Well, the hull looks fine.
Not even a crack.

I wish I could say the same
for the rest of the island.

This place is a wreck.


- Aah!
- Oh!

This is my home.

It's Maliga.

You know her?

I know of her.

According to
an old Norberg legend,

Maliga was a sea nymph
who was so cruel...

- Wrong!
- So selfish...

I'm not selfish.
You're selfish.

And so terrible
that her people banished her

to the Foglands
to live forever.


But, apparently,
I'm the one who's cruel.

I thought the magical fog
might be the Foglands, but...

Why didn't you tell us?!

'Cause I wasn't sure
if the legend was real,

and everyone wanted
to see it, and I...

I didn't want
to ruin the party.

Party? I want a party!

As much as we'd love to,
we really have to be getting home.

But this is
your home now, silly.

It's not like I'm letting
any of you leave, like, ever.

So let's party!

Whoop, whoop. Party!

Oh, well, in that case...


Hey! Wait for me!

Whoop, whoop!

Ooh, I love this game!

Okay, okay, I'll give you
a three second head start.

Three, two, one.
Here I come!

What do you want from us?

I already told you.

I want you
to throw me a party.

Now get to it!

Okay, one party,
coming right up.

Chloe, let's go fetch some
presents for our guest of honor.

Oh, presents.

And you three
can braid my hair.

But your hair's
made of seaweed.

- Now!
- One braid or two?

We've got to have something
that'll get us away from her.

I'm so sorry your birthday
party turned out like this.

Why are you sorry?

I'm the one who kept
doing things I didn't like.

I'm the one who didn't
speak up about the Foglands,

just so everyone
would like me.

All I wanted
was a few friends.


Chloe, how do you expect
anyone to be your friend

if they don't know
the real "you"?

It's good to be
less selfish.

But you still have to be

Excuse me.
Where are my presents?!

You know, Elena. I think
I found the perfect gift.

How are my braids coming?

Ugh. You sure
you want braids?

- Unh!
- Yeah, how about an updo?

Psst! Mateo!

What are you...

Is that my present?

And so much more!

Prepare yourself
for the best party ever!

Ugh. Finally.

Oh, Maliga!

Fearsome creature of the deep!

I, Mateo, Master
Royal Wizard of Avalor,

am here to entertain you
with fantastical magic!


- What's that?
- The chair of honor!


Maliga! Maliga! Maliga!

That's my name! Say it again!

Maliga! Maliga! Maliga!

Whoa! Whoa-oh!

Oh! What's that?

Your gift! We'll show you
how to play with it.

Princess party kick!


Glittery. Now what?

Wait, where
are you guys going?

What's going...?

Oh, no you don't.

If I can't leave...

...neither can you!

We made it!


- Aah!
- Whaa!

- Whoa!
- Oh!

It's Maliga!

What is that?

Some kind
of magical barrier.

Unh! No, not again.

All I wanted was a friend.

I know that feeling.


Chloe, what are you doing?!

I'll stay
if you let my friends go!

Chloe! No!

I don't get it.
Why would you do this?

Because it's my fault
we're out here to begin with.

And, well, I know
what it feels like to be alone.

So you'll stay with me?


Will you let my friends go?


So... what's your name?

Oh, right. Sorry.

We were all caught up in the
whole running for our lives thing.

I'm Chloe.

You're a good friend
to do this for them.

And for me.

Well, I'm working on it.


Wait, "go" meaning...

you're setting all of us free?

Maybe someday,

I'll learn to be
as good a friend as you.

- Oh!
- Where I come from,

we don't hug.

We squeeze.

Everything's okay.

She's letting us go.


after all these years,

you finally understand what
it means to be truly kind.

Your curse
has been broken.

I can come home?

Safe travels, Chloe.

Farewell, Maliga.

I-I have
a confession to make.

I'm scared of heights,
I'm not good at sports,

I don't like magic,
and sailing makes me wanna heave.

So if that means we can't be
friends, I understand.

Chloe, I don't care
if you're scared of heights.

What you did for us was the
bravest thing I've ever seen.

It was?

Yeah, so what if you don't
like some silly party game.

You're a hero.

I am?

You befriended
a cursed sea nymph.

Who needs magic when you
can pull off a trick like that?

All right. I say we get this
birthday party re-started.

And this time,
we'll do what Chloe wants.

Well, first things first.

In Norberg, we don't hug,

we squeeze!

This is nice.

And I do love dancing,

as long as it's
not up in the air.

So who wants to learn
the Norberg Jig?

Oh, I do.

- I'll give it a try.
- Count me in!

hand me the clarinet.

You play the clarinet, too?

Yes, I do!

Happy birthday,
