Hector, a night guard at the Museum of Natural History rushes to work and forgets to turn off the bathtub faucet, accidentally flooding New York City. As the museum exhibits come to life, the blue whale and the giant squid push the Museum towards the open ocean. Hector’s daughter Melissa comes to his rescue. She dives underwater and receives an evolution lecture from a Coelacanth fish. The museum is returned to safety, Hector closes the faucet and cleans up the mess to Melissa’s amusement.
