Hank Hurts a Ship is the second episode of the fifth season.


Bayswater Barge calls Hank a 'bumper bum.' Hank knows that the barge is only trying to be funny, but Hank isn't sure he likes it. When Bayswater continues, Hank retorts with his own names for Bayswater. They both laugh. The next day, Hank repeats the game, but this time it is with a newly arriving ship named Inverness. To his surprise, instead of laughing, Inverness turns around to leave. When Theodore discovers the reason for Inverness' departure he is so angry with his friend that he calls Hank a name. Hank is hurt, but the incident helps him understand how Inverness must have felt. He goes after Inverness, apologizes and welcomes him back to The Big Harbour.

  • This is the second time we see Hank cry.


*Hank: (nervously) "Theodore"

*Theodore: "What is it Hank? I really have to go"

*Hank: "I think...I think I did. I think I did call him...that"

*Theodore: "You what?! Hank! Oh, sometimes...sometimes you're such a...a...a bumper hit!"

*Narrator: Theodore was so cross with Hank, he just blurted out the first thing he could think of to say. And that name hurt Hank like someone had bumped him hard. And the next thing Hank knew, a big wet tear appeared in the corner of his eye.

*Hank: (sadly) "Theodore, you hurt my feelings"

*Theodore: "I didn't mean to Hank. Oh, I'm sorry"

*Narrator: Hank turned towards Inverness. Suddenly, he knew why the ship was leaving the harbour.

*Hank: "I think...I think I hurt Inverness' feelings"

*Theodore: "Well, right now I have to try and stoop him"

*Narrator: And he raced off after Inverness without another word.
