|Secret in a Bottle||Gallery||Transcript|
Craig pays a visit to the Keeper of Secrets in the Creek to get a secret off his chest.
Craig, Kelsey, and J.P. are searching for sticks. Craig finds a slingshot, and places it in the Purse of Holding, the name he gives for his purse. Kelsey and J.P. also request to Craig to place their sticks in his purse, to which he denies. Nevertheless, Kelsey and J.P. preceded to place them on the purse, much to Craig's annoyance. Craig goes to the Secret Kid and writes down his secret. Once Craig finishes writing his secret, he leaves, after the Secret Kid kept it in a bottle. As Craig leaves the Secret Kid's hideout, it starts to rain heavily.
The next day, Craig, Kelsey, and J. P. wander about the storm that hit last night. Eventually, J.P. found a bottle covered in mud. A note falls from the bottle, and J.P. reads it (later revealed to be Bobby's secret). Kelsey suspects the note to be a secret, which makes the trio, including Mortimor, nervous. The trio keep denying that they have a secret, and ultimately decide to bring the bottle back to the Secret Kid.
As they enter the hideout, the Secret Kid appears exhausted. The Secret Kid tells them that a strong storm had washed away all the bottles from his hideout, while still exhausting over the incident. The three decide to help retrieve the bottles for the Secret Kid, while still denying that anyone of them have a secret.
Once the trio finished collecting the bottles and bringing them back to the Secret Kid, they head over to the Trading Tree to have a snack, while still denying that anyone of them have a secret. Suddenly, the Tea Timers appear, with Eliza showing off a bottle and asking whoever owns it, to which everyone denies. At first, Eliza decided to open the bottle, but later, she decides to start an auction for it.
An auction is being held at the Tea Timers' Club. Numerous kids decide to sell off their most precious possessions for the bottle, making Craig feel guilty. With no other choice, Craig decides to open up his secret to the kids in the auction, and numerous kids follow his motive of opening up their secrets, to which Eliza repeatedly ignores. Eventually, Eliza opens the bottle, and as she reads the content, "I don't like horses", Kelsey and Craig wander who kept the secret, but it is later revealed to be Marie's. However, the Secret Kid covers the secret for Marie, and proceeds to tell a secret to Eliza, making her nervous. At last, Craig, Kelsey, and J.P. apologize to each other for not telling their secrets. As they reconcile, they start humming until the screen shatters, ending the episode.
