Casey and the Doubleheader/Transcript
(Casey and Dimmy are swimming)
Casey: Oh, this reef has lots of plants for our Aqua-Botany class, Dimmy.
Dimmy: *spots a red coral piece* What's that? *sees it moves* Yipe, it's moving!
Casey: *looks at it* Amazing. it seems to be some sort of coral cocoon.
Dimmy: Yuck! Don't touch it, Casey! Who knows where it's been.
Casey: Oh, don't be such a scaredy snork. *two creatures pop out* YIPE! *her and Dimmy hide*
(Red and Ed pop out and yawn)
Dimmy: Pa-pa-pa-please don't hurt us!
Red: Don't be afraid.
Ed: We're friendly.
Dimmy: Well in that case, nice to meet you. The name's Dimmy. *shakes hands with them* And this is Casey Kelp.
Red: I'm Red.
Ed: And I'm Ed.
Red: And together, we're a complex --
Ed: Duplex. *yawns* And we've been hibernating --
Red: -- a long, long time - and I, I mean, we're hungry.
Casey: Oh sensational. We'll have lunch together. Let's jet along. *they follow her*
Snork-In-the-Box: Four quarter flounders coming right up! And thanks for eating at Snork-In-the-Box! *pops out basket, and Casey gives it some change*
Dimmy: Mmm, that sure looks tasty.
Red: I'll say. Mind if I have some?
Casey: Sure, help yourself.
Red: *eats the whole basket*
Ed: Where are your manners, and what about my diet?
Dimmy: Well, I wasn't that hungry anyway.
Casey: Oh look, there are some friends of ours. Come on, I'll introduce you. *takes them to Allstar and Tooter* Allstar, Tooter, wait up!
Allstar: Great groupers, Casey, what kind of seaplant is that?
Casey: *giggles* It's no seaplant, silly, it's a complex duplex named Red and Ed.
Dimmy: *to Tooter* Keep your eye on that kelpsickle. That red head loves to eat. *Red swallows it* See what I mean?
Tooter: *toots in disappointment*
Ed: Please excuse my brother's indescriminate overeating. *moans and rubs stomach* It seems to have given me a bellyache.
Red: *rubs his as well* Oh, me too.
Allstar: Don't worry. my Uncle Gallio will have something for your indigestion. *takes them to him* Come on.
Gallio: This Aqua-Seltzer should settle your stomach.
Red and Ed: *drink* Ah, thanks doc. We needed that.
Ed: What's this?
Gallio: *shows sizemograph to them* This is my latest invention - the super sea sizemograph. It's so sensitive, it can trace the sound of a falling shell. *demonstates it by dropping the shell, and it works*
Gallio: Forgive me, I must be boring you.
Ed: It's not you, Dr. Gallio. It's Red's turn to sleep. *Red snores*
Gallio: A complex aquarius sleep patterns allow one head to rest while the other stays awake. Fascinating.
Ed: Well it may be fascinating to you, but it can be a real drag. *leaves*
Casey: Come on, you can stay at my house.
(At Casey's house)
Mrs. Kelp: Of course, you two can sleep in the living room.
Casey: Yes. This is a convertable conk. *pops out bed*
Mrs. Kelp: I'll leave some of my special searoses by your bed. *puts them out*
Ed: *smells them* They're beautiful.
Mrs. Kelp: I raise them in my garden.
George Kelp: And they're going to tkae first prize at next week's Snorkland's Seaflower Show.
Mrs. Kelp: Oh, daff, you're such an optimist.
Casey: Here's a pillow. *places it behind them* Good night, Ed.
Ed: Good night. *yawns then falls asleep*
Red: *smiles then smirks* At last, he's asleep, the only time I ever have any fun. *laughs* Now what's to eat around here? *sees searoses* Ah, these smell yummy. *eats them* They taste even better! *eats some more* I could eat a reef full of these. *sees garden* This must be my lucky night! *eats again* Uh oh, I did bad, but it felt so good. Now to have some more fun.
(Red goes over to Gallio's lab)
Red: *places bubbles in the lab* Now this is fun! *sizemograph goes crazy* Lucky for me, he's such a sound sleeper. *laughs* Now to make that thing really move! *pops bubbles* Pop go the bubbles! *registers high and jumps up and down* Oh, this should really register! And this! *knocks over book shelf, and it explodes* Whoo, that was quite a quake! Oh, that party pooper's gonna wake up soon, I better get back. *leaves*
(The next morning at Casey's house)
Mrs. Kelp: *opens window* Rise and float, everybody, it's a beautiful *GASP*! My searoses, they're gone!
George Kelp: Jumping jellyfish, what in the whirlpool could've happened?
Ed: You were awake during the night. Did you see anything?
Casey: Yes, Red, did you?
Red: Yes, well, uh, as a matter of fact, I did feel a cold wave pass by.
Ed: Is there anythign we can do?
George Kelp: Cold waves happen, it's not your fault.
Mrs. Kelp: Even with my green thumb, I don't think it's possible to grow more searoses in time for the show.
Casey: Oh, poor mom. Her searoses were so beautiful.
Ed: But we've seen wild ones almost as nice.
Red: Sure, way out on the reef.
Casey: Hey, maybe if we look, we can find some. Come on. *they follow her into town*
Tooter: *horns in town*
Casey: Tooter, what's the emergency?
(Tooter motions them to visit Gallio at his lab)
Gallio: Obviosuly, there was a tremendous seaquake during the night.
Allstar: But Uncle Gallio, none of us felt it.
Tooter: *toots he didn't feel it either*
Red: Uh, I felt it. It was real strong - almost knocked me, or, er, us, out of bed.
Gallio: I knew my sea sizemograph wasn't mistaken.
Casey: What a strage turn of events. First a cold wave ruins my mom's searoses, a now a crazy crazy quake wrecks your uncle's lab.
Allstar: Casey, where in the whirlpool are you going?
Casey: *leaves with Red and Ed* Out to the reef to find my mom some wild searoses, I hope.
Tooter: *finds a pedal from a searose*
Gallio: Looks like Tooter found a searose of his own.
Allstar: *smells it through his snork* I know that scent anywhere. That's one of Casey's mom's homegrown searoses. But how did it get into the lab?
Dimmy: Maybe it blew in last night, except these shell shutters are closed. *finds red and yellow hairs* This hair got stuck in them.
Gallio: *sees it* Yeah, red and yellow, like that complex duplex, and one's used a crowbar-fish on my shutters. Very peculiar.
Allstar: I'll say. *star turns on his belt* The duplex was never near the window yesterday, so their hair means they snuck in last night, wrecked your lab, and dropped a searose while they were at it.
Tooter: *toots why*
Allstar: I don't know why, Tooter, but something tells me Casey's new friends are bad news. *heads out*
(They leave the lab)
Gallio: Just be careful.
(Casey, Red, and Ed are at the wild reef)
Casey: Oh, not a searose in sight. And we can't go much further. there are dangerous reef rapids all along here.
Ed: I'm sorry, Casey. The searose beds must have shifted since the last time we hibernated.
Red: yeah, it doesn't look like a very good spot for lunch, either.
Ed: Red, you're starting to worry me. Sometimes all you think about is your *yawns* stomach.
Red: Our stomach, brother, and it looks like it's time for your nap. *he yawns*
Casey: heads up, you two, I found them! *pulls them out* Oh, just look at these wild searoses, they're beautiful.
Ed: *yawns* I'm so glad, Casey. *falls asleep*
Red: So am I. *eats them* Tasty. Not tasty as your mom's, but not bad.
Casey: You ate my mom's searoses?
Red: Sure, while he was asleep. *slowly goes after her* And now, I'm gonna eat you.
Casey: But I'm a snork. You don't eat snorks, do you?
Red: *laughs* Why not try? What do i have to lose?
Ed: *wakes up* A friend, that's what!
Red: Ed, what are you doing up?
Ed: I said you were starting to worry me, Red.
Red: Yeah, but you're supposed to be asleep.
Ed: Well I only closed my eyes so I could see what you're up to.
Red: Well I'm having snork for lunch, and don't try to stop me. I'm stronger than you are, and I eat more.
Casey: *nearly falls over the waterfalls* I'm sorry I met you two. Help!
Red: Are you out of your head? Come back here! *grabs her*
Ed: Got ya!
(Casey's saved, and Allstar observes)
Red: Now look what you've done! You're stuck!
Ed: Use your head! We're both stuck!
Red: Hey, you're right!
(All fall down)
Allstar: You're safe now, Casey, I saw the whole thing. *shakes their hands* Congratulations, Red, you're a hero. You too, Ed.
Red: Who? hero? Me? I-I-uh, I mean us?!
Tooter: *cheers for them*
Casey: But what are you doing here, Allstar?
Allstar: Oh, I had some silly suspicions about the duplex ruining Uncle Gallio's lab, adn your mom's garden. *sees them picking out wild searoses* But, I see I was wrong.
Red: Do you think we have enough for Mrs. Kelp?
Ed: If you take anymore, we won't be able to swim.
Casey: What's going on?
Ed: Red's found out a better way to get attention. Okay, I'm coming, I'm coming.
(George and Mrs. Kelp get more searoses from Red and Ed)
Mrs. Kelp: Oh Red, they're beautiful.
Red: uh, I hope you win the contest, Mrs. Kelp.
Ed: Now where are we going?
(They're at Gallio's)
Gallio: Thanks for fixing up my lab, Red.
Red: I like doing good things. it makes me feel good.
Ed: *yawns* Good and tired.
(They push children resembling Dimmy and Tooter on the swings)
Red: *laughs* Oh, this is fun. Well, how am I doin', Casey?
Casey: Oh, just fine. Oh, it's hard to believe Ed ever had a bad side to him.
Ed: *yawns* But how am I ever gonna get a good night's sleep? Oh, I can't wait to hibernate.
(Red sees Ed falling asleep, but only smiles)
