The Flying Kipper has had its fair share of incidents...

Henry: Oh, not again...

James: Ohh...

...but things start to take a turn for the worst.

Duck: You could say your Flying Kipper is cursed, Henry! Ha, ha!

Henry: Ha, indeed!

Charlie: There's a curse going around!

Murdoch: Curses?

Thomas: A curse?!

Annie and Clarabel: (gasp)

Suspicions start to form.

Murdoch: Hiro crashed last night while taking The Flying Kipper!

Victor: Needing repairs, again?

It's up to Henry to prove who's right...

Henry: There's no such things as curses!

Philip: How can we be sure?

...and who's wrong.

Henry: How about I show you...

Hank: No, Henry!

Hiro: Help, help! I'm derailing!

James: I'm not pulling that train again...

Cranky: ...seriously?
