(Daffney is in her room, trying different outfits, from a "jungle girl" look to a royal blue evening gown)
Daffney: Eww, too icky! I look like a tubo-snork! *takes the first outfit off and puts on the blue dress* What's happening to me? Nothing looks good!
Casey: Daffney, hurry up. Junior is waiting for us.
Daffney: Oh, I feel awful!
Casey: What's wrong?
Daffney: I don't have a thing to wear!
Casey: *laughs* What about these? *points to her dresses*
Daffney: They make me look uglier than a snorkeater!
Casey: Oh Daffney, you look fine.
Daffney: Casey, a snork who is normally gorgeous can't be laid to the word "fine."
Casey: Cheer up, Daffney. You'll feel better when we get to the clownfish circus.
Daffney: I'm just not in the mood.
Casey: Come on, we'll have fun!
Daffney: Oh, alright, but just a minute. *puts on yellow heels* Maybe my mother's heels will make me feel gorge-wah.
Casey: *giggles as she tries to walk in them*
(Bigweed and Lil Seaweed are attempting to trap the snorks yet again) Bigweed: Are ya sure this snork trap is set?
Lil Seaweed: *holds a rope* It's set!
Bigweed: I want a trial run!
Lil Seaweed: Kelp out, Bigweed, it'll work!
Bigweed: Then prove it to me! *she pulls it, and the trap falls on her* I knew you'd blow it!
Lil Seaweed: There's a logical explanation for this! It's a snork trap, and I'm not a snork!
Bigweed: No, you're a klutz!
Lil Seaweed: *grinds her teeth at him*
(Junior is frustrated of waiting any longer outside of Daffney's house)
Junior: *to the girls* What took ya so long???
Casey: Oh, Daffney couldn't decide what to wear.
Junior: Oh, girls! Why are you wearing those?
Daffney: *in those same high heels* I thought they'd make me feel gorge-wah!
Junior: Gorge-wah?! You won't feel gorge-wah if you break a leg.
Daffney: Oh, I guess you're right. *takes them off* Junior, do you think I'm still beautiful?
Casey: Oh, be nice! She's having a bad day!
Junior: Well, maybe if I clsoed my eyes.
Daffney: *frowns to herself*
Casey: That was mean, Junior.
Junior: Sorry, but that's what happens when I'm late for the circus!
(as they follow him, Bigweed watches)
Bigweed: Here come the snorks, don't mess it up this time.
Lil Seaweed: Are you sure this will work?
Bigweed: Yeah, yeah, yeah, trust me! *they hide as the snorks pass by* Now! *Lil Seaweed pulls on the rope, but she hangs upside down* I knew you'd mess it up! You can't do anything right!
Lil Seaweed: Me?! You're the one who said "trust me!" So get me down, NOW!
Bigweed: *he pulls her down and they get trapped in the net* You've done it again! You klutz! *they fight each ohter*
(the snorks now arrive at the circus)
Casey: Whoppie! The Clownfish Circus! Junior: Hey! They're looking for new circus acts!
Daffney: *reads sign WANTED CIRCUS ACTS!* How exciting and glamorous!
Junior: Gee, Daffney, why don't you join?
Daffney: *gasps* Maybe I will!
(as they go on, the Sea Urchins pop out behind the sign)
Lil Seaweed: Oh look, Bigweed, the snorks are going to the circus!
Bigweed: Big deal!
Lil Seaweed: Sounds like fun to me!
Bigweed: Fun?! Who cares about fin?!
Lil Seaweed: I do - sometimes!
Bigweed: No wonder you mess up on everything - your mind is always on fun!
Lil Seaweed: Oh yeah?!
Lil Seaweed: You know what your problem is?!
Bigweed: Yeah, YOU!
Lil Seaweed: No! You don't know how to have fun!
Bigweed: Oh yeah?! I do too!
Lil Seaweed: Yeah?
Bigweed: Yeah! I had fun once!
Lil Seaweed: Doin' what?
Bigweed: *thinks* uh, chasin' snorks is fun!
Lil Seaweed: Chasing snorks is work, not fun!
Bigweed: So what's fun to you??
Lil Seaweed: Going to the circus - that could be fun!
Bigweed: Are you kiddin'? bad guys don't go to the circus!
Lil Seaweed: Then I'll go by myself!
Bigweed: You'll do that?
Lil Seaweed: Maybe i'll even join the circus - I could use a break!
Bigweed: *laughs* I got jsut the act for you - Super Klutz!
Lil Seaweed: Gee, Bigweed, yo could join too!
Bigweed: Oh yeah? You'd think so?
Lil Seaweed: With your face, you'd be perfect as a clown!
Lil Seaweed: And you won't even need make-up!
Bigweed: *mouth drops* That does it! Go join your silly circus! You won't be gone long!
Lil Seaweed: Okay, I will! And you're gonna miss me when I'm gone!
(everyone is now inside the circus)
Daffney: *with cotton candy* You wanna bite?
Junior: No thanks. Some of us are watching our diets.
Daffney: Huh. Want a bite, Casey?
Casey: *takes one and eats it as Junior glares at her*
Junior: When is this gonna start? *to Daffney* I don't wanna jsut watch you eat all day?
Daffney: Hold on to your seat!
Casey: Look! It's PT Bass, the ringmaster!
PT Bass: *speaks through large megaphone* Ladies and gentlesnorks, welcome to the Clownfish Circus! Sit back and enjoy the dangerous and exciting acts we have in store for you! But first, our threee clownfish - Icky, Sticky, and Blicky! *they perform various tricks as the audience laughs* For the next feat, the clownfish will be assisted by the fat lady, Miss Emily Jellyfish! *she comes out*
Junior: Hey Daff, what about you being --
Daffney: Don't start with me, Junior!
Daffney: *tosses cotton candy aside* Just watch the show!
Casey: Oh look! Emily Jellyfish is going to shoot them out of a cannon!
(this act is performed)
Daffney: This is fun!
(then they laugh as Emily lands on the clowns)
Casey: *laughs* This is great!
(Lil Seaweed enters the audience and heads their way)
Lil Seaweed: Move over, snork face!
Junior: Uh, wait a minute, ---
Lil Seaweed: Kelp out, Junior! I'm here to see the circus, not your act!
Daffney: I can't believe I'm sitting next to Lil Seaweed!
Lil Seaweed: Pretty exciting, isn't it?
Junior: Look! A lionfish!
(it jumps over the large hoop)
Daffney: *hides behind the chair in front of her* Ooh, a lionfish!
Junior: Oh, I guess that means being a lion tamer is out of the question!
Lil Seaweed: *laughs* Are you kidding? That scaredy snork??
Daffney: I wasn't scared, I lost something!
Lil Seaweed: Yeah, you lost something alright, your nerve!
PT Bass: And now, the most spectacular act in all of Snorkland! The only act that defies gravity! Terrific Tessie, the starfish on the flying trapeeze! *a beautiful pink snork with blonde hair and big eyes jumps out*
Daffney: *smiles and claps for her* Wow, she's beautiful!
(they watch her in awe as she flies the trapeze with such ease)
PT Bass: We must have too little science. Tessie will attempt a triple flip without a net from our higher platform!
Lil Seaweed: She's gonna miss!
(Tessie does this, and it's successful, and everyone cheers for her)
Daffney: Bravo, that's who I wanna be - a beautiful lady on the flying trapeze!
Lil Seaweed: You'ev been eating too many kelpburgers!
Junior: How do you expect to fly through the air when you can't even sit and watch a lionfish?!
Daffney: Junior Wetworth, you'll eat those words when I'm a star!
Junior: Then I guess I'll jsut have to starve!
Casey: It really looked exciting, but it's gotta be dangerous.
Junior: Yeah, way too dangerous for a scaredy snork like Daffney!
Daffney: We'll just see about that!
(Daffney's in her room, writting a note to her parents)
Daffney: "Dear mom and dad, I'm joining the circus to seek fame and fortune on the flying trapeze. And to prove to Junior that he wouldn't know a brave snork if it hit him in his snorky head." That about sums it up. *grabs her bag and leaves* Watch out, big top, here comes Daffney!
(at the circus, the clowns visit PT Bass) Icky: Hey boss, Tessie the Starfish is gone!
Blicky: Yeah, we think she ran off again!
Sticky: And again, and again, and again! That's three times!
PT Bass: Dret that starfish!
Blicky: Don't worry, PT, we'll get her back!
PT Bass: When I sign up acts, I sign them up for life!
Blicky: They should know better than to mess with you!
Blicky: We better sign up someone quick before tomorrow's show!
PT Bass: I already did, but she's no gorgeous starfish. *sees Daffney behind him as gasps in delight* But what about a star snork?
Daffney: Hi, I've come to join the circus!
PT Bass: Welcome, my little snorkadee! A chair for the lady, you clowns. *she sits on the floor and they laugh as they pull out the chair away from her*
Daffney: Eww, that was icky!
Sticky: I'm not Icky, I'm Blicky.
Daffney: Huh? Then you must be Icky.
Blicky: No, I'm Sticky.
Sticky: I'm Blicky.
Daffney: Oh dear, this is confusing!
PT Bass: Sorry about the chair, these clowns get carried away.
Dafney: Oh that's okay.
Icky: It's just our way to welcome you to the circus.
PT Bass: Which act did you want to train for?
Daffney: I want to be the beautiful lady on the flying trapeze, and wear a gorge-wah costume!
Daffney: But of course. As in gorgeous, like moi.
PT Bass: We just happen to have an opening. Tessie, the Starfish, has taken --
PT Bass: In other engagements! *gives her a contract*
Daffney: Oh, this must be my lucky day! What's this?
PT Bass: Your contract, my little snorkadee.
Daffney: Oh, this is so exciting!
PT Bass: Oh don't bother reading it! It's just the standard circus contract!
Daffney: Where do I sign?
Sticky: Right where it says we own you -- *the other clowns close his mouth and take him away*
PT Bass: Good, now you belong to me. *stutters* I mean, the circus. Show our little star where she can change for rehearsal.
Daffney: A contract and my own super dressing room! I feel like a big star already! Oh Icky, this room is so small.
Sticky: I'm not Icky, I'm Blicky. *points to Icky* He's Sticky.
Icky: And I'm Icky.
Daffney: This is yucky! Are you sure this is my dressing room?
Daffney: It looks like where you store seaweed.
Sticky: Speaking of that, you have a roomate.
Blicky: Yeah, another future trapeze star.
Daffney: Who? *Lil Seaweed pops out behind the irror* Lil Seaweed, what are you doing here?
Lil Seaweed: I'm gonna be famous on the flying trapeze!
Daffney: You're the future trapeze star?!
Lil Seaweed: The one and only!
Daffney: Over my dead body!
Lil Seaweed: Don't tempt me!
Daffney: You're just a clump of seaweed, how can you be on the trapeze?!
Lil Seaweed: Hoo hoo, look who's talking! You're just a kelpcake eating snork!
PT Bass: Now now, my little snorkadees, you must learn to get along. You'll be working together.
Lil Seaweed: Maybe when the ocean runs dry!
Daffney: Not in a deep sea moon!
PT Bass: Ladies, please, it's time for rehearsal! *points to the trapeze above them*
Daffney: Oh, he's gotta be kidding!
Lil Seaweed: Don't tell me you're scared!
(they both climb up the rope and look down)
Lil Seaweed: You're not afraid of heights, are you?
Daffney: Me? Afraid of heights?! *shakes* N-n-never!
PT Bass: Time for your practice swings! Oscar will catch you on the other side.
(they see Oscar the giant green octopus in front of them)
Daffney: I never trust anyone with eight hands!
Lil Seaweed: Kelp out, Daffney!
PT Bass: Come on! Who's goin' first?
Both: *point to each other* Her! *then to themselves* Me!
PT Bass: Alright, now start swinging! Daffney, you're first!
Daffney: Huh! He likes me best!
Lil Seaweed: Not for long, snork face! *Daffney fails at grabbing the rope and Lil Seaweed laughs*
Daffney: Uh, do it again. I wasn't ready. *grabs it and swings back and forth* AH!!!
PT Bass: That's the way! I love it! Beautiful, beautiful!!!
Daffney: ARE YOU CRAZY???!!!! *Oscar grabs her* Ta dah? *moans*
PT Bass: Don't worry, we'll work on it. Next!
Daffney: Come on over! Fame is waiting!
(Lil Seaweed grabs it and swings)
PT Bass: Now, let go!
Daffney: Hey, watch it!
Lil Seaweed: *lands on the let* Are you sure Tessie the Starfish started this way?!
PT Bass: Terrific! Absolutely top notch! Now let's see how ya catch onto this next trick!
(Daffney hangs onto the rope with her legs as Lil Seawed attempts to swing over to grab onto her)
Daffney: *looks at her finger* Oh, I broke a nail! *Lil Seaweed falls* Whoops, sorry! Wasn't ready.
Lil Seaweed: Aah!!! *in net again*
(now Lil Seaweed's doing the same thing Daffney did as Daffney does this trick - Daffney grabs onto Lil Seaweed's hands, and then is about to get onto the other side but falls down onto the net)
Daffney: Ooh!!! *but then she jumps off of it*
(now they're both swinging togather)
Daffney: You're too heavy! *Lil Seaweed drops in the net again, then they start over, and this time, Lil Seaweed gets to the other side*
Lil Seaweed: Oh, I finally made one!
Daffney: You're getting better.
(Lil Seaweed does it with Oscar and finally lands on the other side with Daffney)
Lil Seaweed: Yay!
Daffney: *high fives her* Way to go!
Lil Seaweed: Don't get carried away.
Icky: How we doin', boss?
PT Bass: Better than I expected! *thinks for a moment*
Blicky: Are you gonna teach them the big one?
Sticky: The great big, scary one?
PT Bass: If you mean the great, big, good for business one, yes! Uh, wonderful work, little snorkadees! And now there's just one more routine!
(Daffney and Lil Seaweed both try to swing past each other onto opposite sides, but they bump into each other and fall onto the net - however, they laugh in response)
Lil Seaweed: This is more fun than chasing snorks!
Daffney: You can say that again!
Both: *continue laughing*
PT Bass: *has the clowns carry brooms and shovels* Well, how do ya like the circus life so far?
Daffney: It's great, but boy, am I beat!!!
Lil Seaweed: Me too!
(they both jump off the net and walk away)
PT Bass: Going somewhere?
Daffney: To our dressing rooms.
Lil Seaweed: Yes, us trapeze stars need our rest.
PT Bass: My little snorkadees, there's no rest in my circus.
(Sticky hands them their mandatory cleaning supplies)
Sticky: Now, ya have to do your chores!
Blicky: Yeah, ya know, like clean out the lionfish cage.
Icky: Help set up tents.
Lil Seaweed: But, we're performers.
Sticky: In PT's circus, everyone works!
Both: *look at each other* Uh oh!
(in the meantime, Bigweed is pacing and talking to himself outside)
Bigweed; "Lil Seaweed, whadda ya say we go scare some snorks?" Where is she? Oh, that's right, she joined the circus. Wah, who needs her anyway? I don't miss her! NAH! *still walks around* Lil Seaweed!! Well I sure hope nobody heard that. I don't want anybody to think I've gone soft. Oh, maybe I'll go for a swim. Yeah, uh, past the circus. But only if it's not out of my way.
(Casey swims over to Junior, Allstar, and Tooter to tell them of Daffney's disappearance)
Casey: Hey guys, did you hear that Daffney ran away to the circus?
Junior: You mean she actualy did it?!
Junior: Ah, don't worry, she'll be back soon!
Casey: That's what her mother said! She didn't take her Snorkendale's card with her!
Both: *giggle to each other*
(showtime is about to start, and Daffney and Lil Seaweed are both wearing dazzling blue and white trapeze girl outfits)
Daffney: You look gorge-wah - even for a piece of seaweed!
Lil Seaweed: For a snork, you don't look so bad yourself!
PT Bass: Well, my little snorkadees, you're goin' out there just a clump of seaweed and a snork! But you'll both come back as stars!
(then the show actually begins)
PT Bass: It gives me great pleasure to introduce our two beautiful girls on the flying trapeze! The stupendous, scrumptious, Lil Seaweed, and the dazzling, daring, Daffney!
(they all come out and bow to the audience)
Bigweed: *walks over to the front entrance* Ah, maybe she's being an elephant-fish, or selling tickets! What's this? *sees her grab an octopus and swings over to the other side* What's she doin' up there? She could get hurt!
Icky: What's with this guy?
Sticky: Looks like a big bag of Seaweed to me!
(sees the girls perform more tricks on the trapeze)
Lil Seaweed: You were great!
Daffney: Not bad yourself!
Bigweed: Please, Lil Seaweed! If you come down from the trapeze, I'll be nice to ya - for at least two days!
(they still perform)
PT Bass: And now, gentle snorks, for their finale, the daring dazzling Daffney, and the stupendous scrumptious Lil Seaweed, will perform the double flip switcharoo, without a net!
Both girls: No nets??!!
Bigweed: No net??!!
Daffney: Is he crazy?
Icky: *laughs* This is gonna be great!
Blicky: If they make it!
Sticky: Then they'll belong to PT Bass for life!
Bigweed: Something feels rotten here!
Daffney: I'm scared, Lil Seaweed!
Lil Seaweed: Me too, Daff! We better join forces on this one!
PT Bass: For the trincitaring double switcharoo, my two stars, Lil Seaweed and Daffney, as for your complete silence!
(Daffney and Lil Seaweed are at opposite ends of the trapeze)
Daffney: Lil Seaweed, just remember!
Lil Seaweed: I know, don't look down!
Daffney: Well, here we go!
Bigweed: I can't look!
(they swing over to opposite sides, bump into each other, and fall down)
Bigweed: Lil Seaweed! *faints*
(Daffney catches Lil Seaweed)
Lil Seaweed: Whoa! Sometimes a little snork is a good thing to have!
Daffney: That's what friends are for!
PT Bass: *to them* What a great finish! Keep it in!
Both: That's what he thinks!
(Sticky purs clams on Bigweed, which wakes him up)
Lil Seaweed: Bigweed!
Bigweed: *moans then smiles* Lil Seaweed?!
Lil Seaweed: Bigweed, what are you doing here?
Bigweed: Well uh, I was in the neighborhood.
Daffney: Did you see our act?
Bigweed: Yeah, it was okay. Not bad.
Sticky: *laughs* Are you kidding? He was so scared, he fainted!
Lil Seaweed: Bigweed, you fainted over me??!!
Bigweed: Well, you know, it's uh, hot in here.
Daffney: Wasn't Lil Seaweed great on the trapeze?
Lil Seaweed: Oh, thanks! You were great too!
Bigweed: Huh? Sicne when did you two become friends?
Lil Seaweed: *shakes Daffney's hand* We circus performers have to sticck together.
Icky: Hey pal, unless you wanna work for the circus, no free shows!
Bigweed: Work?! Don't say that word! *walks away* I'm goin', I'm goin'!
PT Bass: My little snorkadees, you were simply marvelous! Audiences everywhere will love you!
Lil Seaweed: What do you mean everywhere?
PT Bass: You're starting on a world tour!
Daffney: Not us, Mr. No-Net! We're going back to Snorkland!
Lil Seaweed: Yeah, you can do your own act!
PT Bass: Thank again, my little snorkadees, you signed a contract. You belong to me now!
Lil Seaweed: What do you mean, we belong to you?
PT Bass: *laughs* It's in your contract! Everyone knows you never sign anything without reading it first!
Daffney: Now what'll we do???
Lil Seaweed: I have a plan - this always works! Bigweed, help me!!!
Bigweed: *with the clowns and a lionfish in a cage* Out of my way, you clowns!
(they set the lionfish free, and it goes after Bigweed)
Lil Seaweed: Bigweed!
(the grisl break free from PT Bass)
Bigweed: *still being chased around* Nice kitty, uh, nice kitty kitty!
Lil Seaweed: Daffney, lower the trapeze! *Daffney does it, and she gets on it to save Bigweed* Bigweed, grab a hold!
Bigweed: No, you'll drop me!
Lil Seaweed: Come on, Bigweed, trust me!
Bigweed: *feeds the small table to the lionfish* Now where have I heard that before? *grabs Lil Seaweed*
Lil Seaweed: Not bad for a klutz, huh?
Daffney: Way to go, Lil Seaweed!
(but the rope snaps)
Lil Seaweed: Oh no! *they fall down* Sorry, Bigweed, I guess the klutz is back!
Bigweed: That's okay with me!
(they see PT Bass drag her away)
Lil Seaweed: I've got to help Daffney!
Bigweed: Go ahead! I'll keep these clowns busy! *he spins them around with his feet*
Lil Seaweed: *as PT Bass makes Daffney go up the trapeze* I don't work for you, PT! Put her down!
PT Bass: I'll show you what happens to deal breakers!
(they see a hole through the tent)
Daffney: Where are we going???
PT Bass: We're flyin' together out of here, my million dollar snorkadee!
(they try to fly, but Daffney falls down and Lil Seaweed grabs her, causing PT Bass to fall into a cannon about to be fired by Bigweed)
Bigweed: Your world wide tour starts now, PT! *shoots him out of there*
Daffney: Wow, that was even better than the double flip switcharoo!
Lil Seaweed: Yeah, that's one time PT looked like ET! *they both laugh together*
(now they're out of the circus and into their normal selves)
Daffney: Bigweed, you saved the day!
Bigweed: Shh, someone might hear ya!
Lil Seaweed: He likes people to think he's rotten.
Daffney: But he's not! If it wasn't for Bigweed, --
Bigweed: Hey, keep it down! I don't want anyone get the idea I go around helpin' snorks!
Lil Seaweed: He's right, ya know. That's the way it's gotta be.
Daffney: Yeah, too bad. I guess the next time we see each other, we can't be too chummy, huh?
Lil Seaweed: After all, we're enemies.
Daffney: Yeah, sea-enemies. It'll be our secret. Well goodbye, stupendous, scrumptious Lil Seaweed!
Lil Seaweed: *her and Bigweed walk away* So long, dazzling, daring Daffney!
