R is acting like a pirate (she's a pirate, herself). She comes to D who is drumming and G who is drinking. They hear the vowels harmonizing. D, G, and R come to them. U asks R what she's doing. R says she's being a pirate, and gets the others to play pirates with her. A says "Alphablocks, all aboard!". But they don't have a ship. So, they're going to make one.

r-u-g, RUG!

A rug appears as the body of a ship.

r-o-d, ROD!

A rod appears as a mast. Now they need a sail.

r-a-g, RAG!

A rag appears. The ship is complete. Everyone except A, O, and U hops aboard and set sail through rain and big waves. The weather clears when they spy land. R gets D, I, and G to find the treasure.

d-i-g, DIG!

E, D, G, I, and R dig a long way underground as they sing. They come to a real island. They open a chest and inside is something than treasure; it's a picnic! The five of them eat together and watch the sunset. R gets up and tells them it's not a sunset.

r-e-d, RED!

The sky is painted red like a sunset sky. Red skies at night, pirate's delight! Rrrrr!
