However, Klaus doesn’t have much time to mourn Fiona since he and his sisters have to get out of the Carmelita and get to Briny Beach. After Sunny repairs the porthole with gum, the Baudelaires set off on their difficult and bumpy journey. With Violet at steering and Klaus at the charts on the Queequeg, they escape the Carmelita’s jaws and set towards Briny Beach. Though they have to stay totally silent as the mysterious entity shaped like a long eyebrow passes them by.  However, the trip doesn’t take long which is about overnight since they eat Violet’s cake at some point. They find themselves on the foggy shores of Briny Beach the next morning.

Gorgonian Grotto

For this part I went with Steppenwolf’s “Magic Carpet Ride” since it’s a song describing a journey. So it kind of fits. In this version, I have the Baudelaires take a journey from the Carmelita to Briny Beach.

 

“This Is Such a Bumpy Ride”

Sung by Violet and Klaus Baudelaire

Violet:
Let’s get out, yes, yes, and learn to steer this submarine
Someone fix that porthole on the floor
Gum will do the trick, Sunny
Get far, to sea, let’s escape to Briny Beach

Well, you don’t know what we can find
While we’re operating this submarine
This is such a bumpy ride
You don’t know what we can see
Better be fast getting to Briny Beach
Meet up with a taxi
Close your eyes now
Look inside now
Start the engines and escape

Klaus:
Not sure where my Fiona’s at
Though I so wished she stayed
But we must get to Briny Beach
Well, what’s that? Don’t want to see that again
Let’s look around, we should get up off the ground

Well, you don’t know what we can find
While we’re operating this submarine
This is such a bumpy ride
You don’t know what we can see
Better be fast getting to Briny Beach
Meet up with a taxi
Close your eyes now
Look inside now
Start the engines and escape
