    Underwater shots of fish building a "love nest".

    "This shows how a poor fish is often a very good husband." M/S of a small fish swimming in a tank. "Meet Pa Stickleback - just a good living fish." More fish swim around. "Pa is building a little home for the Mrs..." We see the fish digging down into the sand at the bottom of the tank. Various shots of the fish swimming around and picking up bits of foliage.

    "He may seem a bit jerky in his actions, but lots of unpleasant kinds of sudden death lurk beneath the ocean bed - " More shots of the fish darting around. "Here is love, many leagues under the sea." Closer shots of the fish. "Proud papa..." Fish swims around with lots of tiny babies swimming around him.
