Sesame Street: Bert and Ernie Fish Call


ERNIE: (HUMMING) BERT: (SIGHS) Oh, gee, Ernie. An hour on this lake
and not one bite. ERNIE: Mm-hmm. BERT: Where are all
the fishes? ERNIE: Well, they’re
down there, Bert. BERT: They are? ERNIE: Sure. If you’d like, I’ll catch
some and show you. BERT: Oh, you will? ERNIE: Mm-hmm. BERT: Easy as that? ERNIE: Sure. BERT: Ha! OK, here’s a pole. Go ahead, show me. ERNIE: Oh, I don’t need
a fishing pole, Bert. BERT: What? ERNIE: Mm-mm. BERT: Well, how are you going
to catch all these fishes without a fishing pole? ERNIE: Oh, you see,
I call them. I have this special fish call. And they come right
into the boat. BERT: Oh, they do? ERNIE: Mm-hmm. BERT: You call them? ERNIE: Mm-hmm. BERT: (LAUGHS) He calls them. (LAUGHS) That’s rich. This I got to see. Go ahead. ERNIE: Sure. Well– BERT: Call them. ERNIE: –you see, Bert,
I have to call them really loud, though– BERT: Yeah. ERNIE: –so they can hear. BERT: Yeah. ERNIE: You know, the fish
are under the water? BERT: Sure. ERNIE: And so you have to call
real loud so they can hear you through the water, you know? BERT: Sure. Sure. ERNIE: OK. BERT: Go ahead. ERNIE: I call them like this. BERT: (LAUGHS) ERNIE: (CLEARS THROAT)
(LOUDLY) Here, fishy, fishy, fishy! Found one fish. BERT: Wow. ERNIE: Mm-hmm. I think I’ll call a few more. (LOUDLY) Here, fishy,
fishy, fishy! Two fish. Shall I call a few more, Bert? BERT: Yeah, yeah. How do you do that? Yeah, yeah. ERNIE: Well, just like this. (LOUDLY) Here, fishy,
fishy, fishy! Three fish, four fish,
five fish. BERT: Wow. Ernie, that’s terrific. Let me try, OK? ERNIE: Sure. BERT: How do I do it? ERNIE: Just make sure you
call real loud, Bert. BERT: OK. Just real loud. ERNIE: Mm-hmm. BERT: Got it. OK. Here we go. (CLEARS THROAT)
Here, fishy, fishy, fishy, fishy, fishy. ERNIE: No, Bert. BERT: What? ERNIE: That’s not loud enough. You’re calling very quiet. BERT: Oh. OK. Here, fishy, fishy,
fishy, fishy. ERNIE: Mm-mm. Still too quiet. BERT: Too quiet? ERNIE: Mm-hmm. BERT: OK. Here we go now. (LOUDLY) Here, fishy, fishy,
fishy, fishy, fishy! ERNIE: No, that’s not
loud enough, Bert. BERT: (SIGHS) OK. (LOUDLY) Here, fishy,
fishy, fishy, fishy! (GASPS) Ernie, it doesn’t
work for me. I’ve been trying to call
and call, and they just don’t come up. ERNIE: Oh, that’s
the way, Bert. See, you got it now. You’re yelling real loud. So you have to yell just like
you’re yelling right now. BERT: Yeah? OK. (LOUDLY) Here, fishy,
fishy, fishy, fishy! SHARK: You called? (LAUGHS) BERT: (SIGHS) That’s
one for you, Bert. (LAUGHING) SHARK: (LAUGHING)
