  • Narrator: It's a completely exciting and unusual Saturday morning st the Botsfords', as they're about to have a visit from Becky and TJ's grandfather, Bampy Botsford!
  • Becky: Is he here yet?

  • Becky: Oh, I can't wait to see Bampy!
  • TJ: Mom, Dad, when's Bampy getting here?
  • Sally: Any minute now.
  • Tim: We're just finishing up Bampy's favorite meal.
  • All: He's here!
  • Bampy: Hi!
  • Tim: Hi, Dad.
  • TJ: Bampy! Hi, Bampy!
  • Bampy: Oh, Becky. Boy, you're getting big.
  • Becky: Gosh!
  • TJ: Hi, Bampy!

  • Bampy: Remember that? All right, all right. Now let's see what Bampy brought for you whippersnappers.
  • TJ: Yeah!
  • (Bampy hands Becky a Pretty Princess Sparkling Art Kit)
  • Becky: (Gasps) Pretty Princess Sparkling Art Kit? Thank you, Bampy!
  • Bampy: And I made special treat for my son and his lovely wife.
  • Sally: Oh, Bampy!
  • Tim: We made a treat for you, too, Dad. It's your favorite--
  • Both: Sweet Potato Succotash Surprise. Well, I guess we'll have leftovers. Okay, this is getting creepy.
  • Bampy: And, uh, ahem. I saved the best for last. Here you go, TJ.
  • (Bampy hands TJ his screwdriver)
  • TJ: Aw, thanks, Bampy! What is this?
  • Bampy: That, my boy, is the screwdriver I used to defeat a 50 foot tall robot back before your father was even born.
  • TJ: You used to fight robots? Awesome.
  • Tim: Ha, ha, ha, ha! Well, TJ, that story might be fictional.
  • Bampy: No, no! It's true! I was stronger and faster than that silly WordGirl you got flying around here like these days.
  • Becky: uh, what is that now?
  • Bampy: You were even stronger than WordGirl?
  • Becky: Heh! Maybe, you're right, Dad. I think that story might be fictional. (Giggles)
  • Narrator: Meanwhile, across town in Tobie McCallister's bedroom...

  • Narrator: Back at the Botsfords's...
  • Bampy: And there I was, standing in front of this monstrously tall robot, wondering how I was going to shut it down and save the city.
  • TJ: Wow!
  • Bampy: And, to be honest with you, I don't think that WordGirl could have defeated a robot this big.
  • Becky: Um, heh! I'm pretty sure if WordGirl had been there, she would have been able to defeat the robot, okay? I'm just saying.
  • TJ: Not this robot, Becky. Only Bampy and his ultra screwdriver could beat him.
  • Becky: Oh, TJ. How could one person-- A non-superhero, I might add-- Defeat a giant robot with no weapon?
  • Bampy: Well, I was wondering the same thing, until I realized I had my trusty screwdriver in my pocket.
  • TJ: Again, I say awesome.
  • Narrator: Meanwhile, high above downtown...

  • Toby: Tobeybot, destroy!

  • Bampy: Clenching the screwdriver in my teeth. Climbing up the outside of this robotic beast, holding on for dear life--
  • Becky: This story can't be true. I don't think that actually happened.
  • Bampy: But it did happen!
  • Becky: It has to be fictional.
  • TJ: Becky, please! Quit interrupting Bamby's story. What does that even mean-- "fictional"?
  • Becky: Well, if something is fictional, then it's made-up or not true. Bamby's story about fighting a giant robot using only a screwdriver never actually happened, So it's fictional.
  • TJ: But what if it's a true story, Becky? What if Bamby did defeat that robot?
  • Becky: Then it wouldn't be fictional. But think about it. Could one person with a screwdriver defeat a robot that big? A robot WordGirl couldn't even defeat?
  • TJ: Bampy could have.
  • Bampy: (Chuckles) Now, uh, where was I?
  • Tobey: Giant robot!
  • Becky: Uh-oh, Bob. Sounds like there's trouble downtown. Let's go.
  • Bampy: Where you going, Becky? You're going to miss the end of my story.
  • Police Officer: Okay, moving, everybody. Nothing to see here. Just an enmorous robot going berserk.

  • WordGirl: Well, well, well. I wonder who built this robot.
  • Captain Huggyface: (Laughs)
  • WordGirl: This shouldn't take long.

  • WordGirl: Ooh! That's strange it's like he knew what we were going to do. Huh. Okay.

  • WordGirl: Oh! Maybe this won't be as easy as I thought.
  • Toby: Greetings, WordGirl. It seems you have met my newest creation, the Tobeybot 9000. Yes, he is handsome. Just like me. And, yes, he is also invincible.

  • Tobey: That's right. Nobody can stop my invincible robot. Ha, ha, ha, ha!
  • WordGirl: Don't worry, Huggy. We'll come up with something.
  • Reporter: Jim, I'm standing at the scene. So far, none of WordGirl's secret moves have worked. Some are fearing this robot may be invincible.
  • Bampy: Invincible. That's just fiction. I'll go give that pile of bolts a piece of my mind.
  • TJ: You're going to fight the robot? No way!
  • Bampy: Well, someone has to and it might as well be me.
  • TJ: Awesome! We're going to fight a giant robot!
  • (TJ runs away)
  • Tim: Hmm.
  • (Sally arrives)
  • Sally: What's up, hon?
  • Tim: Well, Bampy and TJ just left, and I think they heard they were going to fight a giant robot.
  • Sally: Fight a giant robot?
  • Tim: But he might have said "Eat a giant doughnut."
  • Sally: Well, which is it?
  • Tim: Well, you certainly wouldn't eat a giant robot or fight a giant doughnut. I'm leaning "fight a giant robot."
  • Both: (Laughs)
  • Sally: Fighting a giant robot is a terrible idea!
  • Tim: Worse than eating a giant doughnut.
  • Both: Wait up!

  • WordGirl: And energy. I'm beat. Come on, Huggy. We've got to figure something out.
  • Tobey: Ooh hoo! WordGirl? Give up yet?

  • WordGirl: What does that mean, Tobey?
  • Tobey: It means I can't turn the Tobeybot 9000 off. Um, that's really unfortunate.
  • Tobeybot 9000: Freedom! Nobody can stop me! I am invincible!
  • People: (Screams)
  • Bampy: You'll think you're invincible? Ha ha! I think it's pure fiction! Let Bampy do his thing, son.
  • WordGirl: Oh! Bampy?

  • WordGirl: Look out!
  • Tobey: Bad idea, older gentleman. That robot has been programmed to defend against all of WordGirl's moves. I doubt you could put a dent in it.
  • Bampy: But not Bampy Botsford's moves. WordGirl! (Stammers) Fly around to distract it.

  • TJ: Hang on to your screwdriver, Bampy!
  • Bampy: Oh, got your nose. Hey, whoa, whoa! Ohoh hoo!

  • TJ: That was amazing, Bampy! You defeated a robot with just a screwdriver!
  • Bampy: Well, ha! That wasn't invincible after all, was it? Kind of exciting.
  • Becky: What did I miss?
  • TJ: What did you miss? Bampy defeated a giant robot, Becky! and all this time, you thought his story was fictional, huh? Now, do you believe me?
  • Bampy: T.J., here's your present back?
  • (Bampy hands T.J. his screwdriver back)
  • T.J.: Awesome! A robot-defeating screwdriver!
  • Tobey: Well, let's just get over with. Ow, ow, ow, ow! Ooh, next time, WordGirl and sprightly old man-- Oh, ow! Don't! Ow!
  • Sally: We're glad you're okay, Bampy. Fighting giant robots can be dangerous.

  • Bampy: What?
  • Tim: Forget it. Now, who wants some sweet potato succotash surprise?
  • Both: I do!
  • Bampy: I'll have some! Hey, uh... (to Becky) Nice flying back there, kiddo.
  • Becky: WHAT?!
  • Bampy: Don't worry, kiddo. Your secret's safe with me. Heh heh!
