Secret in a Bottle Gallery Transcript

"Secret in a Bottle" is the 28th episode of the second season of Craig of the Creek and the 68th episode overall.


Craig pays a visit to the Keeper of Secrets in the Creek to get a secret off his chest.


While the Stump Kids are searching for sticks. Craig finds a slingshot, and places it in his Purse of Holding, the name he gives for his bag. Afterwards, Kelsey and J.P. request him to place their sticks in his purse. Kelsey's stick is sharp and pointy, and J.P's stick is covered in tree sap. As a result, Craig does not want them to places either of their sticks in his bag. Regardless, Kelsey and J.P. proceed to place them in his purse, much to Craig's annoyance. Craig goes to the Secret Kid and writes down his secret. Once Craig finishes writing his secret, the Secret Kid puts it in a bottle. As Craig leaves the Secret Kid's hideout, a severe rainstorm comes and floods the Secret Kid's hideout.

The next day, Craig, Kelsey, and J. P. wonder about the storm that hit last night. J.P. finds a bottle covered in mud. When a note falls from the bottle, he 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 is mortified. He tells them that the storm had washed away all the bottles from his hideout. 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 finishes collecting the bottles, they bring them back to the Secret Kid and afterwards, 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 who owns it, to which everyone denies. At first, Eliza decides to open the bottle, but decides it would be rude. Then, she offers the bottle in exchange for a trade.

An auction is 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 wonder who kept the secret, but it is revealed to be Marie's. However, the Secret Kid covers the secret for Marie, and threatens to expose Eliza's secret to everyone. After which, 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.
