- Brook: Luffy-san! What are you doing?!
- MotR: Strawhat! You can't do that! You can't steal the princess' pet!
- Luffy: Shut up! I'm not stealing it!
- Brook: What? That's...
- MotR: That's princess Shirahoshi!
- Brook: Does she have panties on?
- MotL: Silence, pervert!
- Luffy: We're heading for the Forest of the Sea! Brook, head there once everyone is gathered! I put you in charge!
- Shirahoshi: -What bravery-
- MotL: -I should warn the king at once!-
- Brook: Roger, Luffy-san!
- Nami: So we need to upgrade this pose to get into the New World?
- MotR: Or you can buy the newer version. It costs around 250,000 beli.
- Nami: So... We need to upgrade this pose to get into the New World?
- Usopp: You said that already! -with a comedic smack-
- Neptune: Minister of the Right, I'm afraid my daughter is hurt. How can we unchain ourselves?
- Zoro: You won't, not until we have our crew gathered.
- Usopp: Oi, old man, you're hands are free, right?
- Neptune: Yup.
- Usopp: Let's play a game of card then, shall we?
Usopp and Pappug sit down and get out some cards.
Brook hurries his way up to the hall everyone is gathering.

- MotR: Sir... Another thing. Pirates blasted into the Shelltower and are getting up, they're ionfiltrating your palace!
- Neptune: Unchain me Zori! This is of high importance, my daughter and palace are in grave danger!
- Zoro: Even if its about life and death... Not until we are gathered again will you see the outside world.
- Usopp: Zoro! How can you say something like this?!
- Zoro: Shut up Usopp. We can't just stop, even this whole event happened unintentionally.
- Nami: He's right Zoro! You should've asked for a million beli!
- Usopp: Oi oi oi, that wasn't the point I was trying to make at all.
- Neptune: Zori, please... Can't you make an exception?
- Zoro: IT'S ZORO!
- Brook: Zoro-san, we need to go anyway. Franky and Robin are still missing and we need to find them.
- Nami: Yeah! We'll find them earlier then the prince.
- Zoro: I know that, but we cannot just head out of Fishman Island to meet up with Luffy! Sunny is yet to be coated!
- Usopp: He's right... We're heading for Mermaid Café, where Chopper and Sanji are!
Neptune and the two ministers are looking at eachother.
- Brook: The pantyfan can come loose. I'll take him to the forest of the sea with me.
- Nami: We could really use more info on our Log Pose!
- Zoro: Okay, we'll meet up at Mermaid Café in an hour Nami. We'll get to the Sea Forest when we're all back.
- Brook/Nami: Okay.
- Usopp: Follow me Pappug!
- Neptune: And me? Untie me from this Hell!

- Chopper: Did you see that? It was the shark Luffy saved from Surume!
- Sanji: You're right, but where's it heading... And why was Luffy on it?
Sanji stops a civilian running by.
- Sanji: What are you running from?
- Chopper: And where is that shark going?
The civilian looks behind and sighs.
- Civilian: Pirates have entered the royal palace... It's a madhouse..! You should run... Follow that shark...
- Sanji: Where does that bring us?
Chopper notices lots of merfolk running away.
- Civilian: To the Forest of the Sea!
- Shirahoshi: Luffy-san... We're almost here... Are you not scared?
- Megalo: Shaa Shaa!
- Luffy: I'm going to be Pirate King, nothing scares me!
- Shirahoshi: Wow... That's adventurous Luffy...
- Luffy: I can't wait to meet up with the others and go to the New World...
- Shirahoshi: Luffy... Are you sure you can endure the second half of the Grand Line?
- Luffy: Of course!
Zoro and Usopp arrive at Mermaid Café, meeting up with Sanji and Chopper.

- Zoro: Jealous beardbrow.
- Usopp: That doesn't sound insulting at all.
- Sanji: We're heading for Forest of the Sea!!
Shirahoshi is out of Megalo again and she closely walks next to Luffy.
- Megalo: Shaa Shaa!
- Luffy: We're here. so what do you want to do?
- Shirahoshi: I just want to lie between coral, walk over grass and feel the light of Eva on my skin...
- Luffy: Well... That sounds boring. You're no fun.
- Shirahoshi: Really?
- Luffy: You would definetly make a bad crewmember [Sticks tongue out]
- Shirahoshi: [Teary eyed] Are you serious?
- Megalo: Shaa Shaa Shaa!
- Luffy: Stop it! [Uses Haoshoku Haki to calm down Megalo]
- Shirahoshi: What did you do? You calmed him down without a fight...
- ?: I knew Rayleigh-san would make you stronger...
- Luffy: Hmm?
- Shirahoshi: It's the Knight of the Sea!
- Luffy: JINBE!
- Jinbe: Luffy-kun! Long time no see!
- Luffy: I've missed you!
- Shirahoshi: You know him, Luffy?
- Luffy: Of course! Jinbe helped me during Ace's passing!
- Jinbe: It's been awhile... I'm glad to see you're okay. I'm glad you got my message.
- Luffy: Message?
- Jinbe: Yeah, that I've been waiting for you at the Forest of the Sea.
- Shirahoshi: My brother told you, didn't they?
- Luffy: Nope, they only chased after us.
- Jinbe: I left a message for you with the princes. Two messages to be exact.
- Luffy: What is the second one?
- Nami: So you're saying that we need this pose to the mechanic of the island?
- MotL: Oh boy, that's what I'm saying.
- Nami: Get me there, right away! I need to get somewhere else too!
- MotL: Will you unlock king Neptune's key then?
- Nami: I don't have the key, Brook has it!
- Brook: Are we there yet?
- MotR: Almost... That captain of yours is dangerous.
- Brook: I know. That's what I like about him. He's so adventurous!
- Luffy: So I can't fight Hodi Jones? Who is Hodi Jones?
- Shirahoshi: He's the nemesis of this kingdom!
- Jinbe: He's the son of Arlong, he's Black Strider of the Ocean: Hodi Jones!
- Luffy: What is he up to? Why can't I fight him?
- Jinbe: He's far more dangerous, he has a bounty of 69,000,000, but his pills make him far stronger then that...
- Luffy: I don't care, if his defeat causes this kingdom to stand... Then I'll put my life on the for you!!
