(Allstar and Casey are searching for plant speciments outside)
Allstar: Quick, Casey, hide in there! *they hide inside a cave as they watch Bigweed on his sub*
Casey: I think we lost him.
Allstar: Whoa, trust Bigweed to show up when we have to collect plant speciments.
Casey: Yeah, there goes my A in Marine Biology! *sees strange looking plant* Hey, look at that!
Allstar: *sees it change color* Wow, what is it?
Casey: *collects it* Maybe Gallio will know. But one thing's for sure, no one else is going to have one of these in their collection.
Allstar: Looks like the coast is clear. *they leave before Bigweed's sub arrives again*
Bigweed: The Neptunia plant has to be around here somewhere. What?! *sees Allstar and Casey with it* They have it! But not for long!
Lil Seaweed: Yeah!
(the snorks visit Dr. Gallio and Governor Wetworth)
Gallio: Why it's a Neptunia plant. It's such a rare plant, we thought it was extinct. But the things we can do with just one leaf, it's clamtastic!
Governor Wetworth: *places it in his fridge for possible safekeeping* I better keep it somewhere safe!
Bigweed: Bah! They could be hiding the Neptunia plant anywhere! It could take months to find it - unless I can force them to hand it over! *evilly laughs*
Lil Seaweed: *laughs along with him*
Bigweed: But first, I need a victim. *spots Daffney and laughs* Perfect!
Daffney: *with a high number of shopping bags and a long list of things to purchase* Hmm, I wonder if I bought enough shoes. I wonder if I should move on to sweaters. Gee, life is full of hard decisions. Oh wow!
Bigweed: *disguises himself as a shoe salesman* That's right, little lady! All shoes 90 percent off!
Daffney: Oh, it's like a dream come true!
Bigweed: Yes, step right in! Take a look around! See for yourself! *locks her in there and place ransom note outside*
Corky: *catches it* Oops, we missed a package. *reads it* Great Neptune!
(Governor Wetworth reads it out loud)
Governor Wetworth: "Unless you bring me the Neptunia plant at noon tomorrow, you'll never see the girl again! Signed, Bigweed."
Gallio: We can't let Bigweed have the Neptunia plant!
Corky: This sounds like a job for *horn* the Snork Patrol! With your permission, Governor, my hand selected rescue force will find Daffney, and bring her back safe and sound!
(inside the sub...)
Daffney: Ew, icky! This is a really weird shoe store!
Bigweed: But I've got news for you - I'm not really a shoe saleman!
Daffney: Huh! I should've guessed that from yor shoes! Your taste is terrible!
Bigweed: You don't understand, you unfortunate snork! *reveals his true self*
Daffney: Ew! I liked your other face better!
(they take her up to her jail cell in the lair)
Daffney: This is an awfully long way to go for a shoe sale. I hope it's worth it!
Bigweed: How many times do i have to tell you?! There are no shoes!
Daffney: Oh really? Then what do you sell? Sweaters, I hope!
Lil Seaweed: *laughs*
Bigweed: Allow me to explain - you have to stay here until your friends bring me a certain plant - in their possession.
Daffney: *as she walks in her jail cell* Oh, you're into plants! I guess a few plants would look nice in here!
Bgiweed: *to Yucks* Guard her! *he walks away*
Daffney: See ya later! *to Yucks* You guys should really get in shape. In fact, I just heard about the funnest new way to work out. It's in here soemwhere. Aha! *finds her cassette player with stereos attached to it* Ready? *plays upbeat workout music*
(Bigweed enters his lab)
Bigweed: Now, all we have to do is prepare a salvent to destroy the essance of the Neptunia plant. *dumps ingredients into a couldren* Hmm, eyelash of jellyfish, what of a whale -- *ceiling crumbles a bit* What i nthe whirlpool?! *goes up to see Daffney exercising with the Yucks*
Daffney: 1, 2, 3, kick!
Yucks: 1 yuck, 2 yuck, 3 yuck, --
Bigweed: Stop that! Get out of here, you sludge brains! *they leave*
Lil Seaweed: Never trust a yuck-yuck.
Bigweed: Crustaceans, guard her! *they do so*
Lil Seaweed: Ha!
Daffney: Hi! *they only mumble to her*
(back in Bigweed's lab...)
Bigweed: A pinch of perdust, the tears of a shark, yes that's everything. Oh, this is gonna turn Snorkland into the nastiest place in the seven seas! *evilly laughs* At last! *hears noises* What was that?
Lil Seaweed: *shurgs*
Crustaceans: Mine! Mine! Gimme mine!
Bigweed: What on surf?!
Lil Seaweed: I'll go see, Bigweed! *goes upstairs* Uh oh!
Crustaceans: *fall down stairs with Daffney's hair accessories* Let go! Mine! Mine! *all fall on Lil Seaweed and tumble into Bigweed's lab*
Bigweed: I must be losing my brine!!!
Crustacean #1: It's mine! She gave it to me!
Crustacean #2: No, for me! I am more beautifuller!
Bigweed: Enough, you idiots! *all then turn to Daffney, who somehow came downstairs*
Daffney: Guys! I told them they had to take turns!
Lil Seaweed: Never count on a crustacean!
Bigweed: Seaweed, get her back to her cell!
Lil Seaweed: With pelasure! *takes her*
Bigweed: And don't fall for any of her tricks!
Lil Seaweed: *laughs* You kidding?!
Daffney: Tricks?! What tricks? By the way, have you ever considered redecorating? Some coral pink wallpaper, nice pictures, seascapes maybe?
Bigweed: *obviously irritated* Ooh! She can be my first into the essance of the Neptunia plant!
(back at her cell, Lil Seaweed is watching while Daffney does her nails)
Daffney: You know, if I had hair like your's, I'd give myself a permanent weight. Seriously, then I'd curl my lashes, then I'd do a mudbath for my skin.
Lil Seaweed: Mud?!
Daffney: Of course. I don't suppose you have any though, huh?
(back inside the lab)
Bigweed: Stings of jellyfish, lips of a leech, my last one. Maybe after I've taken all the fun out of Snorkland, I'll put corks in their snorks! *laughs* Corks in their snorks! *laughs some more until he sees Daffney and Lil Seaweed together and gasps*
Crustacean #1: *putting up pictures* A little to the left.
Daffney: *doing Lil Seaweed's nails after giving her a mud facial wash* Did you hear about that new Plankton Diet?
Lil Seaweed: No, how is it? *to Bigweed* Oh, hi boss. I won't be a sec.
Bigweed: *angry* My lab!!!
Daffney: Lab?! Oh, that icky stuff? *all the essance is destroyed* We found the perfect place for it.
(meanwhile, Jojo and Corky are searching outside of Bigweed's lair)
Corky: So far, so good. But now comes the real test. Bigweed and his guards are tough, but somehow we have to win - for Daffney's sake, and for the future of Snorkland!
Jojo: You can count on me, Corky.
Corky: When I say "charge," go for roke. Ready, Jojo?
Jojo: I am ready for anything.
Bigweed: Wait! Please, take her! *runs out to them* I'll do anything you ask! Give you anything I've got! I'll even leave you alone for a year, if you just take her away! *wails and grabs Corky's leg in mercy*
Corky: Oh, sure! *he and Jojo look at each other and shrug in confusion*
Bigweed: Oh, thank Neptune!
(Daffney leaves now inside Corky's sub)
Daffney: Bye bye! Don't forget to write!
Yucks, Crustaceans, and Lil Seaweed: *all wave goodbye to her*
Yuck #1: Bye bye! *sheds a tear*
Bigweed: Alright, you spineless bunch of jellyfish! Back to the castle!
(a town meeting is being held outside Governor Wetworth's mansion)
Governor Wetworth: And not only did our intrepid Snork Patrol risk everything to save their fellow --
Willie: Pop, I'm hungry, pop. I want bacon and lettuce kelpburger.
Governor Wetworth: Not now, Willie. You'll have to make it yourself. *back to Corky* As I was saying, their heroism sets an example for all snorks.
Willie: *opens the fridge and sees the Neptunia plant* Huh, funny lookin' lettuce.
Governor Wetworth: *gives Corky the metal of honor*
Corky: No, it's Daffney who deserves this. *places it around her* She's the one who saved Snorkland.
Governor Wetworth: Ooh, why didn't someone tell me? Now now, the important thing is, now we're safe.
Gallio: Great news! I found a way to put the plant's power into countless practical uses! This will change the way snorks live forever! I must get to work on the plant immediately!
(during this conversation, however, Willie eats his sandwhich)
Governor Wetworth: Excellent, follow me! *to fridge, where they see the plant's gone* This is preposterous!
Allstar: What could've happened to it?
Willie: *lightly burps* That was the best bacon, lettuce, and tomato kelpburger I've ever had! There was somethign special about it.
Gallio: *moans* I guess we'll just have to wait another thousand years!
Corky: *comforting an upset Daffney* Well don't feel too bad, Daffney. At least Bigweed didn't get the plant either.
Daffney: Yes, but to think! A 90 percent off shoe sale, and I missed out! Oh no! *moans and runs out of the room*
