Plot
Percy misses his friend Gator and ends up rushing around as he tries to keep his mind occupied. He is so busy that he loses control of some trucks, which roll into an old mine. At first, Percy is afraid to go after them, but then he remembers what Gator taught him about being brave.

PRO:
- Moral: Memories can help you get by
- KOTR continuity
- The great focus of Percy
- The rhyming

CON:
- N/A

This was such a nice and sweet episode. I love the great focus of Percy, you feel sympathy for him as we've all been there before when it comes to missing our friends or family members but the moral stands out that memories can help you get by at situations like that and be optimistic. I love how Andrew Brenner had put continuity in the episode, 'continuity what's that?' haha. As the narrator stated that the mine had been boarded up again, this is great as in the past most stories in the series either tend to deviate from the past stories, example 'Bust My Buffers' saying that diesels and steam engines have a rivalry, despite that 'Day of the Diesels' showcased the rivalry is settled as they're equal. Oh yes, why I'm I praising the rhyming? Well it's a rarely used thing in the series nowadays and I said before, it's not as annoying as S13-16 as it was used constantly like crazy that your head would meet wall. I don't see much fault with the episode in the end and I consider it as one of Brenner's good episodes.

Rating: 9/10
