(In a mansion, three cats watch Anchors Aweigh on a couch with all the other cats on the floor)
Jack (Cat 1): (While watching Anchors Aweigh) (laughing) This movie is so funny!
Andy (Cat 2): (While watching Anchors Aweigh) You bet, Jack!
Bill (Cat 3): (While watching Anchors Aweigh) This is great!
Jerry: (While watching Anchors Aweigh unnoticed by the cats) Hey, that's me with Tom! (The cats notice Jerry) Hey, guys, what's up? (The cats angrily look at Jerry)
Jack: (car horn honk)!
Andy: (car horn honk)!
Bill: (car horn honk)!
(Jerry goes the direction where the cats are pointing and then finds a kazoo and plays it impressing the cats)
(Tom is drinking his milk and hears Jerry playing the same kazoo he found)
Tom: Nice Kazoo. (Tom grabs the kazoo out of Jerry's paws)
Jerry: Tom! Give me that! (Jerry tries to get it but Tom keeps pulling the kazoo away from Jerry's jumps) Tom! Aha! (Jerry inhales) (car horn honk)!
Tom: (screams) (He falls to the floor and drops the kazoo and Jerry looks at Tom in shock) Shame on you, Jerry! (Tom gets up and angrily looks at Jerry) Using a word that is sick and inhumane to the society! If I hear you say that again, you're gonna have soap put in your mouth! (The phone starts ringing, Tom picks it up and Jerry walks out) Hello? (phone chatter) Oh, Hi, Toodles! (phone chatter) Yes, I'm fine. It's just that Jerry just learned a new word and he said it to me. (phone chatter) Well, he said (whispering into the phone) (car horn honk). (phone chatter) Of course, he said it! (phone chatter) I don't know where he learned it, but one thing I know for sure that it's a bad word.
Jerry: (without Tom hearing again) (car horn honk x2) I don't know why Tom would react to my new word like that but it seems pretty funny.
(Nibbles is eating some cheese, Jerry walks up)
Nibbles: Hey, Uncle Jerry! Did you find something new?
Jerry: Oh, yes, I did! (breathes in some air) (car horn honk)!
(Nibbles becomes shocked; he drops his piece of cheese to the floor)
Nibbles: Uncle Jerry, did you just say a rude word to me? (gasps) (Nibbles becomes sad) Oh, my uncle doesn't love me anymore! How could you say that to your own nephew! (runs off crying)
Jerry: (notices Nibbles' cheese on the floor, picks it up and walks away) Sheesh. (takes a bite out of the cheese he is holding) I didn't mean to say that to my little nephew. (takes another bite from the cheese) But I guess it's still funny.
(In the alley, Butch and Pals are playing Go Fish, Jerry walks by)
Jerry: Hey, Butch, Meathead, Topsy, Lightning.
Butch and Pals: Hello, Jerry!
Jerry: (snickers) (car horn honk)! (Butch and Pals drop their cards on the ground, scream and run into the trash cans) That gets funnier every time someone reacts like that! (laughs)
(At the pond, Quacker and one of his friends are telling jokes to each other, Jerry walks up to them)
Jerry: (snickers) (car horn honk)! (Quacker and his friend scream and swim away)
(The Eagle sleeps in a tree, Jerry walks up)
Jerry: (car horn honk)! (The Eagle wakes up and laughs at Jerry's new word) You think that's funny? Oh, well...
(Tyke plays with a squeaky toy)
Jerry: Tyke! (Jerry walks up to Tyke)
Tyke: Hey, Jerry, what's up?
Jerry: You want to know a secret word that some people think is funny and other people don't like?
Tyke: (laughs) No, what's that?
Jerry: (snickers) (He speaks into Tyke's ear) (car horn honk). (Tyke becomes shocked) (snickers) (Tyke is about to cry and Jerry notices) Wait, Tyke! I didn't want to hurt your feelings! (Tyke starts to cry) I'm sorry! (Tyke cries even louder and Jerry runs away)
(Tom plays with Jerry's kazoo and Jerry stands by one of the chair's legs feeling guilty for what he did, a shadow casts over Jerry and he looks up, it was Spike the Bulldog, and he is not happy, Tom and Jerry notice Tyke behind his father's legs, still crying)
Spike: (yelling) Jerry! You've got some nerve using such a bad word!
Tom: (looking at Jerry angrily) I tried to warn you, Jerry! But you ignored me!
- This episode marks the first appearance of Tyke in Tom and Jerry Works.
- This episode's plot and even name is very similar to the SpongeBob SquarePants episode, Sailor Mouth.
- This episode was banned in the UK due to the use of bad words. However, some countries still air this episode.
- The title card music is a remix of the Sailor Moon Theme Song which is used as a joke, since the episode's title isn't intentionally a pun on Sailor Moon, but is intentionally a pun on the term "sailor mouth," meaning someone who swears a lot.
