Part of the plot revolves around Jafar seeking Aladdin as he is the only one able to enter the Cave of Wonders and retrieve a valuable item inside; Aladdin finds the lamp and narrowly avoids dying inside the cave.

Penny and her rescuers exit the cave with the jewel after narrowly avoiding drowning.
