(out on dry land is a quaint house by the ocean)
Mother: So you stay where I can see you, Jimmy - and don't go out on the dock.
Jimmy: Okay mom, bye. *plays ball when he drops it in the ocean* Uh oh. *goes to dock when he falls over* Whoa! Help!
(Corky, Jojo, Casey, and Junior are swimming nearby and hear the commotion)
Junior: If you're gonna stop, Corky, at least give us a signal!
Corky: Shh, listen. I think someone's in trouble.
Jimmy: HELP! HELP!
Corky: Come on! *horn* Snork Patrol to the rescue!
(they all carry him and bring him back onto dry land)
Mother: Jimmy, Jimmy! *she runs over to him* are you okay? I didn't know you could swim so well.
Jimmy: But, but I wasn't swimming. Some little sea creatures saved me. Didn't you see 'em, ma?
Mother: Come on, Jimmy. I think you may have swallowed a litle too much saltwater.
Jimmy: But, but they were real.
(all the snorks come out of hiding from a bush)
Corky: Another successful rescue!
Junior: Yeah, but his mom didn't even thank us!
Jojo: *sniffs* What's that funy smell?
Corky: *sniffs it* I think it's called fire. Look!
(all the woodland creatures run from a forest fire)
Corky: Looks like this is going to be a busy day for *horn* the Snork Patrol.
(all grab some water with their snorks and blow out a flame near a village)
Casey: Wow, so that's what a fire looks like. I wonder where it came from.
Ember: I'm sorry. *they all turn to see her, a small flame* It was an accident. *sets off another fire* Oh no, not again! *tries to put it out*
Junior: She's a walkin' flame-thrower!
Ember: *after Corky puts it out with his foot* Oh, thanks for your help. My name's Ember.
Corky: And I'm Corky. It's nice to meet *tries shaking her hand when he gets burned* YAAO!
Ember: Sorry, I hope I didn't barbecue your fingers.
Casey: Hi, I'm Casey.
Jojo: I'm Jojo. I hope you don't mind if we skip the handshake.
Ember: Oh, of course not. And who are you?
Junior: Hey, don't get too close to me! You're dangerous!
Casey: Oh, don't mind Junior. He's always fired up about something. *laughs*
Ember: Oh, that's okay, so am I.
Jojo: Where are you from?
Ember: I live with the island snorks.
Corky: Hmm, then you're a long way from home.
Ember: I know. *cries* The evil Ice Wizard froze our island.
Jojo: The Ice Wizard?
Ember: Uh huh. *sniffs* And since my flames were his only threat, *demonstrates* he struck me with an arrow, and shot me off the island.
Corky: That's terrible! But don't get yourself all burned up! The Snork Patrol is here!
Casey: Yeah, we'll be glad to help you.
Junior: What do you ean "we"?!
Jojo: Don't you wanna help Ember get home, Junior?
Junior: Why should I?
Casey: Because, it's the nice thing to do.
Junior: Nice, huh!
Casey: Lead the way, Ember.
(they follow her)
Ember: Ugh, I think it's time for me to refuel. *she turns cooler* Mind if we take a break?
Junior: Mind?! I insist on it! *sits down* Ugh, I'm burning up. I think I got a fever.
Casey: *giggles* No, Junior, you're just too close to Ember.
Ember: *eats a few leaves ,the nreturns to normal*
Jojo: What are you doing?
Ember: Eating. I have to keep up my strength, you know.
Corky: We should be about halfway there. I better check my trusty map. Now, where exactly did you say this island was, Ember?
Ember: I'll show you, it's right here. *accidentally burns the map* Oh, I was just trying to be helpful.
Junior: Yeah, some help. Can we go home now?
Casey: Junior, how can you be so cold?
Jojo: Yeah, don't you wanna help Ember get back to her island?
Junior: Hey, my mom won't even let me play with matches! Why do you live on that dumb island, anyway?
Ember: Well, when I was just a tiny spark, the island snorks took me in and cared for me, so in return, I stayed and kept things warm for them.
Casey: Until the Ice Wizard took over?
Ember: Yeah, and he doesn't even care about anything except the Golden River!
Junior: What a dope! What's he want with a bunch of water?!
Ember: Oh, it's not a river of water - it's a river of gold. The wixard froze it solid, and he makes the island snorks mine it for him.
Junior: Do you mean gold? As in 14 karot?
Ember: Uh huh.
Junior: Uh Ember, you just sparked my interest in this island of your's. Come on, what are you guys waiting for?! *runs off*
Ember: I didn't know Junior could be so kind and helpful.
Casey: Neither did we.
(all the snorks are at the edge of a small cliff, looking down at the river)
Casey: Now if we can just get you across this river, you'll be home sweet home.
Jojo: *looks at rope above him* No problem. *pulls it down* Hop aboard. We're jsut about ready for take-off. Hang on, everybody. *they swing across the river*
Ember: *accidentally burns it* Look out! *all run from the flames and go up a tree branch*
Corky: Phew, that was a close one.
Casey: Yeah, but we're okay now.
(but the see anotehr flame next to Ember)
Ember: What's that noise?
(she finally sees it, so they jump onto the river and land on a tree stump for safety)
Junior: Why don't we just swim across this stream?!
Casey: Well that's great for us, but Ember can't get wet.
Jojo: Besides, who would want to swim in this water? it's full of garbage.
Junior: Eww, yuck!
Corky: But as they say, one man's trash is another man's treasure.
(pretty soon, they've all turned the garbage into a portable hot air balloon)
Corky: Just a little more hot air, Ember, and we'll be up, up and away.
(they move across to the other side with it)
All: Hooray, it worked!
Junior: Hey Ember, did anyone ever tell you that you're uh, full of hot air? *laughs*
Junior: *standing around and waiting* Hurry up, you guys, we haven't gone all day!
Corky: Whoa, slever down there, Junior. Let's make sure we're going the right way.
Junior: No problem. I've already decided we can take a shortcut through this field.
Corky: Hmm, sounds like a good idea. Troops, forward march!
(as they follow Ember, the corn above them in the field turns into popping popcorn)
Jojo: What was that?
Corky: I don't know, but we'd better keep moving.
(but the popping contiinues, causing the ground beneath them to shake a little - then they all run from the popcorn)
Casey: *pants* What's happening???
Ember: Beats me. I guess I got a little overheated.
(all take a rest after all that running and escaping from the popcorn)
Ember: Sorry to be so much trouble, guys.
Jojo: No trouble at all. I just wish we'd brought some butter and salt. *takes a bite out of the popcorn* (everyone is now near a wooden bridge at a small gorge)
Ember: *with an arrow* Here's the arrow I told you about. This is where I landed, when the wizard shot me off the island. *burns that too*
Junior: Wow, I'm never letting you play with my toys! You're too destructive!
Corky: *looks at the bridge* Now, if my calculations are correct, the island's not much further.
Ember: Then let's go.
(as they follow her, more smoke and burning awaits)
Jojo: *sniffs* Hey, I think something's burning, and I don'r mean Ember. Look!
All: *see flames beneath them* Yipes! *run to the other side as quickly as they can before the bridge itself collapses and falls deep into the gorge*
Junior: *sweating* That Golden River better be worth all this trouble!
Casey: Well at least we're all safe. Besides, what else can happen to us?
(a pop up thunderstorm suddently takes place)
Jojo: Don't worry, it's just water. That can't hurt us.
Ember: Well, it may not hurt you, but it'll snuff me out for good!
Corky: Don't worry, I'll save you! *they quickly get her to a cave* There there, Ember, we'll be safe until the storm ends.
Ember: Oh, I'm sure glad I met you guys. If anybody can save my island, you can.
(they finally get out of the cave)
Ember: *points across the river to a frozen island covered in snow* There it is. That's snork island.
Corky: Well Ember, in just a few more minutes, you'll be home.
Ember: I'm not so sure about that. How am I supposed to get across this water?
Jojo: *with wood* hop on! Jojo's Taxi Service, at your disposal! *she gets on it, and they walk across the river with her* Now hang on, Ember!
(the Ice Wixard is on his upper deck, viewing the snorks)
Ice Wizard: Ooh, it looks like that silly little flame just can't stay away form this island. Perhaps I should give her and her friends a proper welcome. *laughs and throws an icecicle at them, thus freezing their pathway*
Ember: Oh no, it's the wizard! What'll we do?!
Jojo: You'll be alright. Just don't let go of this branch.
(he throws her onto the island)
Ember: *sees she's melting the snow* Oh no! I've gotta save my friends! I'll make sure the snorks get a warm reception, no matter what the Ice Wizard does. *burns a small tree behind her, and warms them with her flame* Hooray!
Junior: Now I knwo what a seaweed sicle feels like!
Ice Wizard: Oh drat! Little miss blowtorch just won't quit! Hmm, perhaps it's time to douce that pesky flame once and for all! *laughs* Ooh, I like that laugh. *throws anoher icecile at them while Ember warms them up some more*
Casey: Gee Ember, I always knew you were a warm person, but I never really appreciated it until now.
Ember: Thanks, Casey, but I'm beginning to feel a little dim after all that work. I, I think I need to refuel. *turns blue again*
Corky: We'll help you find some food, Ember.
Ember: Oh thanks, Corky. But first, we better get out of here. The Ice Wizard might attack again. *they skae across with her*
Jojo: Hey, this is fun! *twirls around, then falls into snow as the other laugh*
Ember: *sees icecicle collapse into the snow* It's the Ice Wizard! Run!
(they keep running until they reach a house blocked by more icecicles)
Junior: Oh no, what now?!
Ember: Come on! *they follow her into an empty house equipped with a fireplace*
Casey: Whew, that was close!
Junior: Yeah, but how are we gonna get out of here? I'm supposed to be home in time for dinner.
Corky: Well at the moment, that's the least of our problems. Hmm, this little spark needs some kindling. *give her some bark* See how this tastes, Ember.
Ember: Hmm, charbroiled oak - my favorite.
Corky: *takes her over to the fireplace*
Casey: Do you feel okay now?
Ember: Yes, but I'll feel even better once we get rid of the Ice Wizard.
Corky: Well that may be harder than we thought - that wizard seems pretty powerful.
Jojo: *gasps* Maybe the townspeople can help us!
Ember: Um, I don't think they'll be much use to us.
(three island snorks with bluish skin melancholingly enter the house)
Corky: You'll help us fight the Ice Wizard, won't you?
Island Snork: *blank stare*
Casey: But you can't possibly be happy with him ruining your island.
Island Snork: *another blank stare*
Junior: *with a rock* What's your problem, pal? I bet you'd care if i tried to sell you this rock for 10 clams!
Island Snork: *takes out money and gives it to him* I don't care.
Junior: Wow, that guy doesn't care about anything.
Ember: That's the problem - none of them do.
Corky: You mean all the snorks on the island are this indifferent?
Ember: Uh huh. The Ice Wizard put a spell on them, turning all their hearts cold. Now, they're jsut as unfeeling as he is.
Jojo: Couldn't you thaw them out?
Casey: *gasps* Yeah, that's a great idea! *takes them to Ember* Okay, Ember, time to make this fella's blood boil!
Ember: *eats a branch and warms him up*
Island Snork: *back to normal* Oh, where am I? Ember, you've gotta save us!
Ember: *sighs* It's all I can do. *all the island snorks turn cold again and walk away* I'm sorry, but the spell is too strong.
Jojo: That's okay. *throws more wood for her* We'll take care of that nasty wizard ourselves.
Junior: *about to open door*
Casey: Junior, where are you going?
Junior: Uh, I've got a little unfinished business with those island snorks. I'll meet you guys later. *takes out money* Boy, if one lousy rock can get me 10 clams, I can make a fortune off these marbles! *leaves*
Ember: *burns down cold door* Shall we go?
Corky: Snork Patrol, to the castle!
(they are now standing in front of a large, cold castle)
Ember: I'm not sure how to get past this gate.
Jojo: Let me try. *tries to pull, but it's hard*
Casey: *takes out hair pin* Hey, maybe this will work. *inserts it into keyhole, and it opens*
(they all run inside)
Ember: That door leads to the tower.
(a giant, evil snowman pops out with a broom)
Snowman: Just where do you think you're going?!
Corky: To see the Ice Wizard, now get out of our way!
Snowman: No, you get out of MY way! *sweeps them onto the broom* Now I've got you, you little pests! *puts them back down*
Ember: Hey, hit me! I dare ya!
Snowman: Okay! *misses* Hey, where'd she go??
Casey: She's right behind you!
Snowman: *sees her on broom* Uh oh. *melts, leaving only his hat to run off*
Ember: *giggles as entire broom burns* Sometimes, I'm just too hot to handle! *burns down door*
(enter the lair, where they see stashes of gold and jewels)
All: Wow! *the temperature rises somehow*
Corky: There he is! Let's get him! *but they only get a dummy of him*
Jojo: It's a dummy! He tricked us!
Ice Wizard: *pops out from behind* And for another trick, I'll give you the cold shoulder! *laughs as he blows ice on Corky, turning him cold*
Casey: *cornered as she too turns frozen*
Jojo: *becomes frozen as well*
Ice Wizard: *to Ember* Now, it's your turn, you hot-tempered little troublemaker!
Ember: *tries fighting back, but he blows ice on her* You haven't won yet! I'll be back!
Ice Wizard: *throws an icecicle at her but it hits a tree and she jumps down* Ha! She won't be back, now that her frinds can't help her!
Junior: *shoes up* Hey everybody! Look at all the clams I just made!
All: *monotonous* We don't care.
Junior: *sees them* Whoa, what happened to you guys?!
Ice Wizard: Your little playmates were dumb enough to try and catch me!
Junior: Uh, uh don't worry. I, I won't bother you.
Ice Wizard: No, I don't think you will! You're different from your friends.
Junior: *gulps* Yeah, I'm not frozen.
Ice Wizard: Well, not yet anyway. And perhaps, you won't have to be. I mean after all, we're a lot alike.
Junior: *shakes* We are?
Ice Wizard: Oh sure. Obviously, that money was more important to you than helping your friends. *laughs* I like that! It shows you've got potential!
Junior: So uh, what are you gonna do with me?
Ice Wizard: Well, I could use an assistant. And with a little coaching, you could be as cold-hearted as me! *laughs* How about it?
Junior: *takes out a golden jewel* Hey, you know? I think I might like being a wizard. *shakes his hand* It's a deal! *the alarm goes off and the temperature only increases in the room, making Junior sweat* Oh, it's getting hotter in here!
Ember: Not as hot as it's gonna get! You don't wanna be like him, Junior! He's mean and cruel! Why, he doesn't even have any friends!
Ice Wizard: Ha! Who needs friends?!
Junior: *looks at his* I do miss mine.
Ice Wizard: Well you don't need them! As soon as we get rid of this pesky flame, you can share all my wealth with me!
Ember: Well if you won't help me, Junior, then I'll just take care of this myself! *she tries fighting him*
Ice Wizard: So, you want to play rough, eh? Here, catch! *throws a snowball at her, cuasing her to melt into a little flame* Go on, Junior, snuff her out!
Junior: *gasps* Um, me?
Ice Wizard: What are you waiting for? One little stomp on the foot, and you'll be set for life!
Junior: *walks over to his frozen friends* I don't care how much gold you give me! *takes out cash* it won't buy me friends like these! *burns the money, who turns into Ember*
Ember: Thanks, Junior. Now I'm really cookin'! *melts Ice Wizard*
Ice Wizard: No, let me, AAAHHH! *melts away*
Ember: *warms the gang back to normal*
Junior: You did it, Ember!
Corky: What did she do?
Junior: Ember defeated the Ice Wizard!
Ember: Thanks to Junior's help.
Corky: Junior helped you?!
All: I don't believe it!
Junior: Neither do I! How could I burn all that money?!
Ember: It's because deep down, you're realy warm-hearted.
Junior: *blushes* Gee, I guess so. But, let's not tell anyone, okay?
(the island snorks, now warm-hearted again, acknowledge the snorks for saving them from the Ice Wizard at their village)
Island Snork: Thanks again, Junior. *comes out with a present* We'd like you to have something to remember us by.
Casey: Oh Junior will never forget this place. It's probably the first, and last, time he'll ever burn money! *laughs*
Junior: You can say that again! Well, I guess it was worth it to save you, Ember.
Island Snork: And because of that unselfish attitude, we want you to have this.
Junior: *opens it and sees it's real gold* Wow, gold! *checks with a magnifying glass to be sure it's real* And it's 24 karot! Uh, you got anymore money to burn?
All: Oh, Junior! *laugh*
