Chills, Drills and Spills/Transcript
(We open to view the quaint cold city of Snork Pole, where Esky lives)
Female snork 1: *opens window* Oh, what a beautiful morning.
Paper snork: Paper!
Female snork: Thank you!
Male snork 1: Morning.
Male snork 2: Good morning.
Male snork 3: Betcha can't catch thos one, snork fingers?
Male snork 4: Oh yeah, watch this! *catches frozen snorkball*
Male snork 3: Alright! Great catch! *they both see giant shadow* Oh no!
Female: *gasps and shuts door*
(all flip out - oil drilling up in land, and the snorks freak out)
Esky: *wakes up* Huh, what's happening? *scrams from giant boulder* Wow, I don't believe my ice! *sees drilling and the oil fall onto their igloos*
Snork 5: We've got to escape! *takes family with him*
Esky: The Snork Pole is being destroyed!
Father: I noticed, we have to evacuate!
(meanwhie, snorks arrive)
Casey: I hope Esky doesn't mind us dropping by unannounced.
Daffney: Yeah, we always have a great time at the Snork Pole! I can't wait to get there!
Jojo: Looks like some snorks can't wait to leave there.
Daffney: *oil on dress* Oh, my clothes, icky!
Esky: Hurry, swim for your snorks! A giant drill is destryoing the Snork Pole!
Casey: *grabs him* But you can't just swim away.
Esky: Of course I can! It's what I'm good at! Just watch!
Casey: But your village - isn't it worth saving?
Jojo: Don't you wanna at least try to save it?
Esky: You know, I haven't thought of it. That's not a bad idea.
Daffney: Come on, we'll help you.
Esky: Okay, but I think I'm gonna regret this.
(they see the drilling of the pil in front of them)
Jojo: We've gotta find out where that drill's coming from.
(go up chains to see humans on boat drilling)
Casey: I should've known humans were behind this!
Esky: I guess there's nothing we can do then. Too bad.
Casey: Nonsense. humans are reasonable. We'll just politely ask them to leave.
(up on boat..)
Mugner: Move it, you bum, we've got oil to find!
Tom: But Captain Mugner, we've been working for weeks without a break!
Mugner: Tom, nothing will stop me from finding the perfect palce to drill. Now move it!
Casey: Excuse me, sir.
Mugner: Wha? Who said that?
Casey: Hi, we're snorks, and we'd just want you to know what your drilling is disturbing one of our villages.
Mugner: *wipes eyes* I must be working too hard. You guys can't possibly be real!
Daffney: We are too real!
Casey: And the sooner you move your drilling, the sooner we can fix your village, okay? Thanks.
Mugner: I'm not moving my driling for any snarks, or snorks, or whatever you are. I gotta job to do, so get off my ship. *blows them away*
(all get off)
Lady: Oh, uh, who were you talking to, boss?
Mugner: None of your business, now get back to work!
Casey: Who does that guy think he is?
Tooter: *toots in agreement*
Esky: Oh he's in charge, and he seems to be in a very bad mood.
Casey: Well I don't care! He can't push us around like that!
Casey: We've got to stop him from destroying the Snork Pole!
Tooter: *toots in agreement*
Casey: And stop him now!
(up top again)
Mugner: Rats! Oh, I guess it's time for your lunch break! Alright, go ahead!
(all hungry and eat)
Mugner: Okay, that's it! Lunch is over! Back to work!
Lady: Oh, we have to talk to the boss about these 10 second lunches, sheesh!
(snorks return to boat as a human sleeps)
Casey: Oh no, you guys, there's a human in there.
Mugner: Johnson, if I catch you sleeping again, you're fired!
Johnson: *wakes up* Oh, thank you, boss.
Casey: Hey, now I know what to do. *male voice* Johnson, get out here now!
Johnson: *leaves* Coming, boss!
Casey: *messes with the controls* Now let's see here. I'll try this one first. *pulls down lever*
Mugner: *ground shakes* Uh, what's going on? *to Johnson* Why aren't you on the bridge*
Johnson: You told me to come and see you.
Mugner: Must be those little fish again. Uh, you better stay here. I'll be right back.
Casey: Come on, jsut a little more, and we'll break the drill.
Daffney: You'll do it!
Casey: Oh, no, we're not!
(all thrown off again and back into the water)
Casey: Don't worry, guys, I've got another idea!
Casey: Now's our chance, come on.
Jojo: *uses sworfish to cut it off* I think we're gonna make it.
(all thrown off by drill)
Esky: Cut it out, you guys.
Casey: Well, they won't get the best of us! I've got another plan!
Daffney: It better not be icky as your plast plan!
(now use a rock)
Casey: Okay, be sure to tie it tightly, Tooter.
Tooter: *ties it to rock*
Jojo: There, that should hold.
Casey: There, let's move. *ties it to pole*
Jojo: Quickly, before the drill starts up again.
Daffney: Clamtastic, it's working!
Lady: Hey, the drill's busted. We've gotta pull it up and make repairs.
Mugner: Oh we don't have time to pull up the drill. I'm going in after it.
Johnson: Oh, can I go too?
Lady: Yeah, me too. Hey, I wanna help
Mugner: *in scuba gear* I'm doing it myself. Now get back to work. *descends into the water and sees rocks near drill* Oh, so that's the trouble. I should've know - it was those little troublemakers again.
Esky: Listen to us! We live here! You've gotta drill somewhere else!
Mugner: You want me to lose my job? You're slowing me down, so get lost! Ugh, it's not been my day. Alright, the boulder's are clear! Now start the drill.
Lady: Ay yay, sir.
(drill starts back)
Mugner: I'll stick around for a while, and make sure those pests don't try anythign else.
Daffney: Sorry, Esky, we tried everything we could.
Casey: Wait, you've got to turn off the drill!
Mugner: Yeah, yeah, save your breath! Nothing can make me shut off that drill!
Casey: But your air hose is wrapped around it.
Mugner: *sees it for himself* My air hose?! Oh no! *gets caught and cut off with water going in his tank* Uh oh.
Jojo: Got it! Hold on, I'm coming! *tooter gets clam to tighten it* Thanks, Tooter. This clam is just what I needed.
Clam: That's the way it always is. I do all of the work and get none of the credit.
Mugner: You saved me after I was gonna destroy your town. No one's ever been this nice to me before.
Esky: But why have you been destroying our village?
Mugner: Ah, to get the oil, what else?
Esky: Are you serious? I know an underground cavern that's just filled with that junk. It's right over that ridge.
Mugner: In that case, there's no need to continue drilling in your town. From now on, we'll stay clear of the area. Ugh, I still don't believe any of this.
(back on boat)
Mugner: Stop drilling! We're moving to another location!
Johnson: Why, boss? What made you change your mind?
Mugner: Don't ask, alright, just don't ask!
Johnson: Okay, okay, take it easy, boss!
(drill leaves the area)
Esky: By the way, why were you visiting the Snork Pole anyway?
Casey: To have a relaxing vacation.
Daffney: Now it looks like we're gonna need another vacation to recover from this one.
(all chill out now - no pun intended, by the way)
