Pokemon Trainers & Babies.
Sara Cicero here. My fellow
Trainers & I are in the Entertainment center doing zip with our Poke-Buddies & Zelda, I fall asleep in boredom.
Eilony: Man, this is another dull day.
Josh: With zilch to do. Wanna play video games?
Buzz: Tanya’s cleaning the N64, I’m not in the mood to hook up the
Game-cube or PS2. Watch TV?
Josh: Sunday, nothing good on. Computer?
Eilony: We’re not allowed to play on Drake-1. Pokemon battle?
Zelda: Pokemon are too bored to battle.
Buzz: Mondo bummer.
After I fall asleep, Wildwing
comes in and I snap awake.
Wildwing: Hey guys. You guys O.K.?
Eilony: Yeah, there’s just nothing to do.
Sara: Say Wildwing.
I clutch onto his leg.
Sara: Please, can’t I get a baby-sitting job?
Wildwing: For the millionth time, no!
Sara: Please, Wildwing?
Sara: Please, Wildwing?
Sara: Please, Wildwing?
Sara: I’m 12 years old, I’m old enough to baby-sit.
Wildwing: But you’re not responsible enough.
Sara: But Double-W…
Sara: Some Spirited Duck you are.
Wildwing: I might reconsider, if…
Sara: If what? Anything, you name it.
Wildwing: You let go of my leg.
I let go of his leg.
Sara: Now, can I have the job?
Wildwing: Read my beak…
He goes off, I sit back on a beanbag chair. Zelda is next to me.
Zelda: Sorry Sari.
Sara: How come Wildwing treats me like a little kid a lot?
Josh: Maybe ‘cause you act like one.
Sara: I act my age, Josh-dude.
Josh: Oh yeah, you’re mature.
Bulbasaur: Bulba, Bulbasaur, Bulba.
Zelda: He said, “Sometimes, I don’t get adults, they make up silly
rules like don’t play on Drake-1 & no roughhousing”.
Josh: Hmm… (snaps fingers) I know, remember when the Ducks & us got
zapped by Draguanus’ ray gun and we turned into whittle babies?
Sara: Yep. Good thing they missed Zelda & that ray gun doesn’t work
Buzz: Also, we’re lucky it wasn’t permanent.
Eilony: Or else the show will have to be called “the Mighty Ducklings”/“Pokemon:
Baby Trainers”. Actually that’d be kinda funny.
Josh: Heh-heh. Anyway, all we gotta do is get that ray gun and make the Ducks
Buzz: Good plan, Josh. But Wildwing destroyed the gun, remember?
Josh: Oh yeah. D’ohh!
Zelda: Hey, I have an idea.
Sara: What is it, Zel?
Zelda: Here’s my plan… (whispering)
We huddle together as Zelda
tells us her plan.
Zelda: But we need Gosalyn & Louie.
We contact Gosalyn, I call her on the Poke com.
Gosalyn: Hey Sara, what’s up?
Sara: Gos, Zelda has a plan that’ll help me get the baby-sittin’
job and we can see Digimon on Ice.
Gosalyn: Keen gear, Digimon on Ice, I’ve been dying to see that all week.
Sara: Well, come over to the Pond and we’ll tell ya the plan.
Gosalyn goes from her room to the front
Gosalyn: Going to the Pond, Dad.
Drake: Have fun.
Gosalyn & her Poke-buddy
Seel head to the Pond, Gosalyn releases her Gengar.
Gosalyn: Gengar, we need to get to the Pond.
Gengar: Gengar, Gengar.
Gosalyn & Seel get on
Gengar and they fly over to the Pond. We contact Louie on his Poke com.
Louie: Hey, what’s up?
Josh: Lou, ya gotta come to the Pond, Zelda has a plan that’ll get us
into Digimon on Ice.
Louie: Cool. Sandshrew &
I’ll be right over, c’mon buddy.
Louie & Sandshrew go to
the front door.
Louie: Going out, Mom, later.
He goes to the garage, gets
his bike, Sandshrew hops in the basket and off to the Pond. (puck flies by) They get there.
Sara: Hey guys, to the basement.
Louie: What’s in the basement?
Zelda: You’ll know soon enough.
Zelda & I take our comrades
down in the basement and to this huge machine.
Gosalyn: Keen gear, what is it?
Zelda: Cloning process.
Sara: Zelda figured that if I can’t turn the Mighty Ducks into babies, I’d
might as well make my own.
Josh: It’d be like in “Jurassic Park”, only without the dinosaurs,
death & destruction.
Louie: Man, triple-D. But how’s it work?
Buzz: Good question.
Zelda: The instructions are in your pocket, Buzz-man.
He gets the instructions out of his
Buzz: “To work, get a sample
of DNA from someone. Place sample on conveyer belt, wait 2 minutes as it extracts and out comes the clone in the tube.”
Sara: Cool. But we can’t
tell the Ducks.
Eilony: How come?
Sara: Because Wildwing will ground
me for life and take away my allowance for a year.
Sara: Bingo. So everyone, keep
their lips zipped.
Everyone: (Make sounds like a
Sara: O.K. Now, who’s gonna
get a sample from the Ducks?
Buzz: How about you do it, you’re
Sara: You do it, you ordered
Buzz: You do it, Weirdo!
Sara: No you, Birdbrain!
Zelda: I’ll do it. Not
‘cause I don’t like to see you 2 fight, but ‘cause it was my idea.
Eilony: Be careful, Zelda.
Zelda: Momentie Eilony, I’ll
have those samples in a heartbeat.
(Poke ball swoops by)
Zelda goes to get a piece of the Ducks, she plucks Wildwing’s feather.
Zelda (thinking): 1
down, 5 to go.
She gets a feather
from N.D. (Nosedive).
Nosedive: Yeow! Hey. What was
Zelda: Beats me, Dive.
She hears Duke hacking
out snot he got in his throat.
Duke: (Clears throat, spits)
He come out of the
bathroom, Zelda gets the glob in a beaker glass.
Zelda: (Chuckles) Eew.
She goes to Grin meditating,
she’s about to sneak up on him, but…
Grin: Hello Zelda.
Zelda: How’d you know it
Grin: I sensed you from the beginning.
Now, what are you up to, little friend?
Zelda: I need one of your feathers.
Zelda: I can’t tell you
the reason, please can’t I have a feather?
He plunks one of his
feathers and gives it to her.
Zelda: Thanks Grinster, you’re
Grin: No prob. Pain is an illusion,
an illusion that really, really hurts.
She goes to Mallory,
and gets one of her feathers.
Goes to Tanya still
cleaning the N64.
Tanya (muttering): Duh let me
see here. Place this 8 ohm resistor next to this 5 watt capacitor and sold… OUCH! What the…?
Zelda runs off.
Zelda: Got ‘em!
Sara: All right.
I pick up directions
and do each step in order. A few minutes later, eggs pop out one by one.
Sara: O.K., now we just gotta…
anyone got any ideas?
All: (Saying various no’s)
Gosalyn: Wait I know. Louie.
She pat the eggs.
Louie: Oh no, not me. Anyone
but me. What am I, a mother chicken?
Eilony: Lou-miester, you know
you’d be perfect for helping us get those tickets for Digimon on Ice. I mean, look at the rest of us.
Sara: Yeah. Buzz is too
smart, I’m too cool, Eilony’s too young, Josh is too dumb, Gosalyn’s too impatient, and you well, you’re
uh, large, you’re in-active…
Louie: Alright, alright. I’ll
sit on the dumb eggs, but Buzz better have that incubator ready PDQ.
Buzz: Oh well, I’ll get
going to read some comics then I’ll get to work.
I grabs Buzz by the
back of his shirt.
Sara: Get to work, Birdbrain!
Buzz: All right, Weirdo! (mutters
Buzz starts building
an incubator from all the Styrofoam cups thrown out from yesterday’s hockey game and tries to find a 400 watt bulb.
The rest of us find
out that even Louie is not big enough to sit on all the eggs.
Louie: Maybe we should all sit
on them until Buzz gets the incubator ready.
But we do what he suggests.
Sara: I got it, we’ll sit
back, relax and think of all the money we’ll be getting for this.
All: Ah… money…
Josh: Eww! We sound like Phil…
A few hours later,
Buzz finishes the incubator but it’s only big enough for 50% of the eggs.
Sara: Buzz, you moron! It’s
only big enough for three eggs!
Buzz: Well… uh… so
what are you gonna do about it?
Me, Josh & Louie
tie him up and spread him out over two eggs.
Buzz: Hey, did you guys stop
& think who would be building the incubator?!
Buzz: Well you going to let me
go or what?
I untie him.
Sara: One of these days, Birdbrain,
I’m gonna get ya right in the schnoz. Pow!
Buzz: (Blows raspberry)
He runs off.
Louie: Oh Sara.
Louie: If we torment Buzz much
more he may do the worst thing ever!
Sara: What? Not build another
Louie: No… tell the Ducks!
Sara: Oh yeah. Buzz-meister,
I catch up with him.
Sara: (Catches breath) O.K. Buzz,
sorry me & the others tormented you, just please, PLEASE don’t tell the Ducks, especially Wildwing.
Buzz: I wasn’t gonna tell
the Ducks. I was just gonna get Growler & Charmander to sit on them.
Sara: Oh yeah. Since they’re
Fire Pokemon they’d do really well.
Buzz: Exactly. But wait! We’ll
still need an incubator in case we need to go somewhere and them to come with us.
Sara: Good point.
Buzz & I get to
work making another incubator and we put the other eggs inside it.
Buzz: They’re all done.
(brushes off hands)
Eilony: Now we just wait for
the eggs to hatch in… how long, Buzz?
Buzz: Let’s see here.
Buzz gets onto the
floor and does some math to figure out how long it’ll be before the eggs hatch.
Buzz: It’ll be about a
month & 10 days before they can hatch.
Sara: How would you know? You’ve
never been to Puckworld.
Buzz: I think I can do better
guessing this than you can.
Sara: Alright! I’ll just
Louie: You don’t think
that’ll make him suspicious do you?
Sara: Aw, I’ll just ask
out of curiosity.
A few minutes later,
I come back.
Sara (sarcastically): Buzz, you
were wrong, Double-W said it won’t be 40 days.
Buzz: How long, then?
Sara: I was being sarcastic.
Buzz: Oh, right. But Digimon
on Ice will be in Anaheim for the whole year.
Sara: Good point.
Gosalyn: Guys, I just thought
of something; if they’re a secret, who’s gonna pay us for watching over them?
The other Trainers
& I fall over like in Japanese cartoons. Cuts to me in bed, I wakes up.
Sara: Aah! Whoa! At least it
was all a dream, boy was it stupid. I mean raising baby ducks to get baby-sitting money? Get real.
Eilony: Sara! The babies have
Sara: Oh no, it was real…
In actual-reality, Zelda
& Charmander are shaking.
Zelda: Sara, Sara, wake up, you’re
Sara: (Snaps awake) Guh!
Charmander: Charmander, Char.
Zelda: He said, “Tanya’s
done cleaning the N64”.
Sara: Cool. (sigh of relief)
Note to self: Tell Wildwing, I don’t want any baby-sittin’ jobs.
Zelda: She must’ve had
another strange dream.
Sara: By the way, when is “Digimon
On Ice” coming to the Pond?
Buzz: Well, right now it’s
in Hershey, I guess it’ll come to Anaheim in a few weeks.
I go play video games with
