(open to see Bigweed in his lair, operating a claw machine and attacking a fake replica of Snrokland)
Bigweed: Look out, snork! You can run, but you can't hide! My Chop Machine is comin' to get ya! *it swallows a stuffed snork into a cage* At last, I have something that'll conquer Snorkland! Nothing can withstand the domining power of my Chop Machine!
Lil Seaweed: Nice set of molars you have there, Bigweed!
Bigweed: Pretty impressive, huh?
Lil Seaweed: Not bad, Bigweed, but take a look at this. It's my new invention, the Goop Gun! *tests it on stuffed snork*
Bigweed: What is this stuff?? *gets stuck to it as Lil Seaweed laughs* Hey! *more stickiness and laughter* That Goop Gun is no weapon, it's a meance! And it's not funny, either!
Lil Seaweed: Whatever you say, boss!
Bigweed: Not I want you to go spy on the snorks!
Lil Seaweed: Spying? Oh boy!
Bigweed: It's time for their annual Defense of Snorkland Awards.
Lil Seaweed: Is that the one to honor the best snork invention to protect their city?
Bigweed: Yes, very good, Lil Seaweed. Now quit messin' around with silly children's toys like that Goop Gun, and go do something useful!
Lil Seaweed: *goes to her clothes wrack and mocks him* And go do something useful! *leaves lair looking like an elderly woman* What does Bigweed know? He thinks the snorks will jsut stand still, and that Chop Machine of his run off over him! *arrives at Town Hall* Ha!
(Inside Town Hall...)
Corky: Ladies and gentlesnorks, I am please to announce the three finalists for the Defense of Snrokland Award.
Junior: The others haven't got a hope. When everyone sees my invention in action, they'll really be knocked out.
Corky: First of all, we have a surprising invention from Jojo.
Corky: Jojo says that we could use these rocks to throw at the approaching enemy.
Snorks: Huh? *mumble*
Junior: Boy, that Jojo's a genius! HA! I'm sure to win!
Corky: And here, we have a model of Allstar Seaworthy's invention. It's a Queen Conk Distant Early Warning System.
(snorks in awe)
Junior: Big deal. That conk will look like an empty shell next to my entry.
Corky: And finally, we have Junior Wetworth's invention, the Snoozemaker Deluxe 2000. This machine will instantly make hostile intruders sucome to sleep. And the winner is... Allstar Seaworthy.
Junior: *laughs* Better luck next year, guys, I gues I'm just a -- Allstar Seaworthy?! Hey! *swims over to Corky* How come my Snoozemaker didn't win?
Corky: Well, Junior, it's a little too fantastic. Here, allow me to demonstrate. *turns it on*
(it works, and all the snorks fall asleep, then wake up again)
Corky: You see, Junior, your machine is uncontrollable. It works against everybody, not just the enemy. Better luck next year, eh, my friend.
Junior: Yeah, I guess so.
Lil Seaweed: *watches from the window* Ooh, that Snoozemaker would make the snorks sitting ducks for Bigweed's Chop Machine. *watches him leave* If I can get it, he'll be so impressed with me.
Junior: *swims home in anguish* Nobody appreciates me. I guess I'm just ahead of my time.
Lil Seaweed: Oh, perfect. I've got him all alone. I'll make him an offer he can't refuse. *swims over to him* Gee, that Snoozemaker of your's must be a pain to keep lugging around.
Junior: What's it to you?
Lil Seaweed: Well, I could take it off your hands for you. Oh, I could use a good snooze.
Junior: Well, it's sure not doing me any good. Still, I'd want to get something for it.
Lil Seaweed: I've got jsut the thing you might like. *takes out Goop Gun from her jacket* My very own, exclusive invention - the Goop Gun, check it out. *drops vase* Broken vase, right? Wrong! Watch! *uses it, and it seals it back to its original form*
Junior: Gee, that's amazing.
Lil Seaweed: Then we have a deal?
Lil Seaweed: Come on, kid, go for it. After all, this Goop Gun is worth more than 3,000 clams.
Junior: Wow, 3,000 clams, I -- uh, that's all? Oh well. I suppose so.
Lil Seaweed: *trades inventions with him* Good decision. *then leaves* What a sucker - I just made the deal of the century!
Junior: What a sucker - this is great!
Lil Seaweed: *returns to lair* Oh boy, oh boy, I can hardly wait to see the expression on Bigweed's face when I show him this!
Bigweed: Get those choppers good and clean, you guys! I want them to look their best when they start to eat up Snorkland!
Wood: Sure thing, boss.
Weed: Uh, no problem.
Lil Seaweed: Bigweed, prepare to be amazed by my increddible Snoozemaker Deluxe 2000!
Bigweed: Snoozemaker, you say? Big deal! *laughs* I can feel myself nodding off, already!
Lil Seaweed: You think so? Well then watch this! *tests it out*
Wood: Hey! You left a dirty spot on your tooth!
Weed: I did not, my tooth is a clean as a whistle!
Wood: Oh yeah? Well, --
(they both fall asleep)
Bigweed: That's great, Lil Seaweed! You can use your Snoozemaker to immobilize the snorks, while I use my Chop Machine to gobble them up!
Lil Seaweed: You said it, Bigweed, I'm with you!
Bigweed: That nod up, and let's move on out! *leave*
Corky: That looks good, Allstar. Just a little mroe to the left.
Allstar: A little to the left? You got it. *fixes his machine* Here, Corky, see if you can hear anything now. *hands him headphones*
Junior: hey everyone, look at my great Goop Gun.
Corky: Quit fooling around down there, Junior. Can't you see we're doing serious work?
Junior: Well, excuse me.
Allstar: Well, can you hear anything?
Corky: *beeps* Yes, yes I can.
Allstar: What is it?
Corky: I can hear...
Corky: The ocean!
Allstar: No, aside from that.
Corky: Yes, I hear Bigweed. He's riding some kind of machine. Sounds like, "clockita-clockita-clockita," like teeth. Oh congradulations, Allstar, your system works. Now let's go stop Bigweed. This is another job for *horn* the Snork Patrol!
Junior: Nuts. This is really not my day.
Bigweed: *arrives on Chop Machine* We'll be in a Snorkland in a minute.
Lil Seaweed: Yeah, and won't those silly snorks be surprised to see us coming?
Corky: Stop attacking, Bigweed, or else!
Lil Seaweed: Look, it's Corky's sub!
Bigweed: Yeah, let's chop it! *attempts to do so*
Allstar: Or else, what?
Corky: Hault that firnal machine, you vollets, and you shall be spared my wrath! I shall not allow you to rpoceed beyond this point!
Bigweed: Well yeah? You and who's army?
(he and Lil Seaweed turn on Snoozemaker)
Corky: Hahaha, that silly gadget won't work on me! The Snork Patrol never *falls asleeps* --
Allstar: Maybe I'll save the town later. *falls aslepp* I think I'll take a little nap.
(as they fall asleep, Bigweed's Chop machine swallows them into the cage, and the Sea Urchins laugh and then continue terrorizing the town)
Junior: At last, a chance to save the day. *takes out Goop Gun* This'll slow you down!
Bigweed: Hahah! One more snork for the Hopper!
Lil Seaweed: Oh no, he's got my Goop Gun!
Bigweed: Huh? What did you say?
Junior: *uses Goop Gun on the Chop Machine* Ha! Take that! And that!
Bigweed: What did he say?
(The Chop Machine explodes, then Bigweed and Lil Seaweed get sticky and run off)
Bigweed: It's incredible! A snork finally came up with a weapon that actually worked against me! I'm impressed.
Lil Seaweed: Well, actually, he didn't come up with that weapon. I gave it to him. That was my Goop Gun, the same one you didn't think was any good.
Bigweed: *stop* You gave the snorks a weapon to defeat me?!
Lil Seaweed: Uh, oh.
Bigweed: Why I oughta -- *he goes after her*
(Back at Town Hall...)
Allstar: Congratulations, Junior. Where did you come up with the idea for the Goop Gun?
Junior: I didn't. I traded my Snoozemaker for it - the Snoozemaker you said wouldn't work, ha!
Corky: *angry* What? You mean you gave the Snoozemaker to the enemies of Snorkland so they could attack us?
Junior: Well, I, uh, kinda.
(snorks chase after him)
Junior: Boy, this just isn't my week.
