"Murmur on the Ornery Express" is the 153rd episode of Rugrats.


The popular Agatha Christie mystery, Murder on the Orient Express, gets the Rugrats treatment. For their second honeymoon, Boris and Minka are going on an 18-hour two-day scenic train ride to Little Biendeltown---a town that replicates the charm of the Old Country. But, of course, they invite the entire gang along for the ride. However, along the way, Minka's necklace, Wawa (Chuckie's teddy bear), and Cynthia (Angelica's doll), disappear---they may have been stolen by a train robber, which Chuckie and Kimi's dad, Chas, informs the other adults about after reading it in the paper. As a result, the Rugrats try to find who has stolen these items.

Meanwhile, Drew forces Charlotte to leave her work at home while they go on their trip. But Charlotte, being the workaholic that she is, remains defiant. Also, Didi and Kira try to find various landmarks that the train passes by, but it becomes a challenge due to the many distractions. Plus, on the train, Lulu reunites with an old boyfriend of hers named Dwayne Tickerbacker, but Lou gets really suspicious of him. And finally, Angelica falls in love with Brett, a young, rich socialite (in the end, it's revealed that he and his family live in Little Biendeltown, as they run the Little Biendeltown School of Deportment & Ballroom Dancing).
