Emily uses the Loch Ness Monster Whistle and alerts a Scottish Man who presses a button that alerts the Loch Ness Monster who carries the troop to safety. Uncle Grandpa says he'll never forget how Emily saved her troop by using weird and tells her to continue to fish flop and that it was an honor to serve her and he disappears. The troop leader thanks Emily for her courage and wants to give her the Life Saving Badge but she declines it saying that she has the only badge she needs and proceeds to fish flop away.
