Transcript for Mouse Trap
Narrator: When we last saw Dr. Two-Brains, he had just threatened to destroy the city with a giant goop ray, unless he received every morsel of cheese in the city.
Dr. Two-Brains: Now, when you go to pick up the cheese, I need you to scowl more.
Henchman #1: How’s this?
Dr. Two-Brains: Ehh…not bad.
Henchman #1: Thrkun jue.
Dr. Two-Brains: What?
Henchman #1: I said, “Thank you.”
Dr. Two-Brains: You’re welcome. Now get a move on! It’s almost time for people to start dropping their cheese off at City Hall!
(Two-Brains’s henchmen begin to exit the room.)Henchman #1: My face hurts.
(Two-Brains is now alone. Well, not entirely alone…)
Dr. Two-Brains (as Steven Boxleitner): We shouldn’t be doing this!
Dr. Two-Brains (as himself): Oh, what’s the matter? Professor Goody-Two-Shoes doesn’t wanna take people’s cheese?
Dr. Two-Brains (Steven): No, I don’t!
Dr. Two-Brains: Well, too bad, because Doctor Baddy-Two-Brains does! (evil laugh)
(Wordgirl breaks into the lair through the window.)
Wordgirl: Talking to yourself again, Doc?
Doctor Two Brains (Steven): I…can’t….help it, I—ahhh!
Wordgirl: Come on, Doc, you can fight it!
Doctor Two-Brains (in control again): Hello, Wordgirl! Dr. Boxleitner can’t come to the phone right now, is there something, I, Dr. Two Brains, can do for you?
Wordgirl: Sure! Call off your evil plan!
Dr. Two-Brains: (evil laugh) Attacking me would be futile! You do know what futile means, don’t you?
Wordgirl: Of course. Futile means useless, you think that my attacks wouldn’t work!
Dr. Two-Brains: Correct! For example, (he pulls out handbook and flips to a page) I know that your first attack will be Number 27, Monkey Sidekick Jumping On My Back. (Huggy tries to jump on him, but is tied up by Two-Brains’ trap.) You see? Futile.
Wordgirl: Oh, yeah, well how about….
Dr. Two-Brains: Number 82, The Sumo Karate Snape-Fang Crane Shiatsu Catapult Twist-Kick? (Wordgirl starts to move into the fighting stance, but then realizes it won’t work.) Oh, please. Futile. (He claps his hands twice and Wordgirl is caught in an enormous mousetrap.)
Wordgirl: Let me go!
Dr. Two-Brains: (evil laugh) Two brains are always better than one!
(Henchman #1’s voice comes over Two-Brains’ walkie-talkie): Wre gpiut thre chresegh, Doch.
Dr. Two-Brains: Will you stop scowling?
Henchman #1’s voice: We got the cheese, Doc.
Dr. Two-Brains: Excellent! Hurry back!
Henchman #1: Grout itp!
Dr. Two-Brains: (setting down walkie-talkie) Well, Wordgirl, how would you like to help me test my goop ray?
Wordgirl: You wouldn’t.
Dr. Two-Brains: Oh, I would. And I will! As soon as I get my cheese, you’re getting a little name change, from Wordgirl to Goopgirl! Haha!
Narrator: Is this the end for Wordgirl and Captain Huggy Face? Will the evil Dr. Two-Brains succeed at turning them into goop? If so, would it be futile for them to still have costumes? The questions—and more—might be answered on the next installment of... Wordgirl!
