Transcript for Squeaky's Machine

Narrator: When we last saw WordGirl, she and Captain Huggy Face had been captured by the vicious Dr. Two-Brains!

Dr. Two-Brains: As soon as my henchmen return with the city's supply of cheese, you two are getting a one-way ticket to to goop town!  Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!

(Henchmen return, and back the van into the lair.)

Henchman #1:  It's all here, boss.

Dr. Two-Brains: Excellent!  Let me see.  (pauses)  Huh?

(The back of the truck opens, and the Botsford family comes out.)

Mr. Botsford: Hi, Dr. Two-Brains!  I'm Tim Botsford.  This is my wife Sally, and my son T.J.

Mrs. Botsford: Hello!

T.J.: Hi!

Dr. Two-Brains: Hello. (realizing the absurdity of the situation) What?

Henchman #2: He has a couple of questions.

Mr. Botsford: I have a couple of questions!

T.J. (sees WordGirl in the trap, and walks toward her with a trance-like stare):  WordGirl??

Mr. Botsford: (to Two-Brains) You said you wanted every bit of cheese.  Does that include cream cheese?

Dr. Two-Brains:  Uh...

Mr. Botsford: Is cream cheese cheese? Is it cream?

(As this goes on, the scene cuts to where WordGirl is stuck in the mouse trap.  T.J. walks up to her.)

WordGirl:  T.J....

T.J.:  (in a dreamy voice) WordGirl knows my name?

WordGirl:  um...yeah.  Listen, I'm in sort of a predicament here, so I could use your help.

(T.J. continues to look at her with a wide-eyed stare, obviously star-struck.)

WordGirl:  Ooo...kay.  Just in case you don't know, predicament means a sticky situation...a tough place to get out of.  Like...a giant mouse trap!  (T.J. doesn't move.)  C'mon, get moving while dad's--I mean, while your dad has him distracted!

(T.J. is still in a hypnotized state, staring at his hero WordGirl.  A fly even comes over and lands on his forehead, and he doesn't flinch.)

WordGirl:  Hellooo?  Anybody home?

(The scene cuts back to the van, where the conversation between Mr. Botsford and Dr. Two-Brains continues.)

Mr. Botsford: (holding out tub of cream cheese) You could understand my predicament.  This tub is only half finished!

Dr. Two-Brains: (in frustration) Oh, fine!  Keep the cream cheese!

Mr. Botsford: (to his wife) I told you.

Mrs. Botsford: You were right!

Dr. Two-Brains: Uh, well, it's been great getting to know you, but...

Mrs. Botsford: (to her husband) Hon!  The cottage cheese?

Dr. Two-Brains: (in disbelief) oh no...

Mr. Botsford: That's right!  (tosses the cream cheese aside and reaches for a different container) How do you feel about cottage cheese?

Dr. Two-Brains: That... is... IT!  Tie them up!!

(Henchman #2 points behind him.)

Dr. Two-Brains: (looking behind him)  Oh... (waves meekly)  Hi!

(We see that WordGirl and Huggy are free, and T.J. is proudly holding a large pair of wire clippers.)

Dr. Two-Brains: Listen, sorry about the whole turning you into...

(WordGirl grabs him from off-camera.  In the next scene, Dr. Two-Brains is sitting on the ground, securely tied up.)

WordGirl: Apology accepted.  Thanks for your help, T.J.!  (T.J. faints, landing in Huggy's arms.)  It seems that Dr. Two-Brains is the one in the predicament now!

Mr. Botsford: (to Two-Brains)  I really didn't get an answer on the cottage cheese. Yea?.. Nay?

WordGirl: Well, I'm off...before I say something a little too...cheesy!  ha-ha!  (No one else reacts, making for an awkward silence) Hm..  WORD UP! (flies off, leaving Huggy still holding onto T.J.)

Mr. Botsford: You know...she looks a lot like... (pauses) Nah!

Narrator: So WordGirl escapes her predicament, and saves the city from Dr. Two-Brains with a little help from her little brother T.J.  Tune in next time for more of the continuing adventures of... WordGirl!

(Huggy drops T.J., walks over to Mrs. Botsford and hands her a card)

Mrs. Botsford (reading the card) "Hi! I'm Captain Huggy Face, SUPERHERO.  Would you give me a ride to the nearest bus stop?" Well, sure!
