[BEN’s bed is flying down to an island.]
Ben: Whoa! Tentomon I would say we’re traveling at a very high speed plummeting toward an unidentified island. And uh, crash landing is imminent.
Tentomon: Try to think of it as if we’re just hitting the beach.
[In the sky over the second island, AFTON and PALMON fly down on their bed, yelling and they crash into the forest.]
Afton: Ooh, now that should be good for some frequent flyer miles.
[Later AFTON is dressed and it’s morning.]
Palmon: Are you alright Afton?
Afton: Oh no, humidity.
Palmon: Yeah, some kind of tropical rain forest but not one I’m familiar with, it all happened so fast. Where are we?
Afton: Have you any idea what humidity does to my hair?
Afton: It goes like all poodley, not a pretty sight.
Palmon: Uh…perhaps we ought to look around and see if we can find any of the others.
Afton: Yeah, let’s go. Maybe we can at least find some air conditioning or something.
[On the other island, BEN and TENTOMON are outside a labyrinth.]
Tentomon: Well here we are Ben, hardly the light and breezy island style lodgings I was expecting to find.
Tentomon: Uh yes very interesting, Ben, but don’t you think we should keep searching for the others? I mean now really isn’t the time-
Ben: I know, but just look at this place, it’s prodigious. I gotta check it out Tentomon, just for a minute.
[BEN walks in.]
Tentomon: All right, but just for a minute.
[TENTOMON flies in.]
[On AFTON’s island they see bananas.]
Afton: Yum, bananas!
[AFTON points at them.]
Afton: Can you reach high enough?
Palmon: Mm hm.
[PALMON reaches out her vines and pulls the banana pack down and AFTON grabs it and takes a banana.]
Afton: I was really starved.
[PALMON brings the rest down.]
Afton: Now we can pretend we’re having banana splits, huh Palmon.
[PALMON smiles. AFTON pulls apart the banana to see there’s nothing inside.]
Afton: Huh? Hey what’s the big idea?!
Palmon: They certainly do look delicious.
[PALMON takes one and bites it.]
Afton: I can’t believe it! This place is seriously getting on my nerves!
[AFTON squats down and some pink sludge falls down behind her.]
[She turns and looks.]
Afton: Hm, is that hair mousse?
[AFTON backs away.]
[Something makes a noise in the tree.] Afton and Palmon: Huh?
[In the tree, SUKAMON, a big yellow DIGIMON sits there with CHUUMON, a little pink mouse DIGIMON on his shoulder.]
Sukamon: Uh duh goodbye, meet to nice you.
Chuumon: He means hello, nice to meet cha.
Afton: Palmon, who’s the talking dessert?!
Palmon: It’s Sukamon and Chuumon, also known as the Digi-losers.
Sukamon: Hey, tanks.
Palmon: Sukamon and Chuumon are always together because they share the same teeny, tiny brain.
[AFTON and PALMON run away with SUKAMON and CHUUMON jumping on tree branches throwing more Digi-sludge at them.]
[AFTON stops and turns.]
Afton: Alright that’s enough, leave us alone!
Sukamon: Uh sure okay, but first you gotta pay a—what do ya call it?
Chuumon: Pay a toll.
Palmon: What do you mean a toll?
Sukamon: Uh, does she think she can use our woods for free? She’s gotta pay, like that uh purse there, for instance.
Chuumon: I like the hat.
Sukamon and Chuumon: Huh?
Afton: What part of ‘no’ don’t you understand, you whackazoids? Now get out of here!
[CHUUMON whispers to SUKAMON.]
Chuumon: I think she insulted us.
Afton: Bingo Einstein.
Sukamon: She did?
Chuumon: Go ahead, let her have it.
[AFTON opens her eyes to see they’re throwing sludge at them again so AFTON and PALMON run yelling.]
Sukamon: Do it again, do it again. Ha ha ha ha.
[They stop at a tree.]
Afton: Ugh, that is it. I give up, I wanna see the camp therapist.
[SUKAMON and CHUUMON jump on the tree branch and drop, holding onto the tree and SUKAMON grabs AFTON’s bag strap where the Digivice is.]
Sukamon: Ooh pretty.
[AFTON turns around.]
[SUKAMON and CHUUMON glow.]
Chuumon: Whoa! That’s better than chewin’ tin foil!
[SUKAMON and CHUUMON drop to the ground smiling.]
Sukamon: Oh, I feel all tingly and refreshed like a whole new person.
Chuumon: Yeah, we’re a whole new person.
Afton: Is this one as much of a pain as the last one?
Sukamon: No really, we’ll be nice from now on. Really.
Afton: So you’ll leave us alone?
Palmon: Wait, first tell us if you’ve seen any other humans around here.
Sukamon: Any what?
Palmon: Creatures that look like this one. Sukamon: Uh…
Chuumon: Well as a matter of fact.
Sukamon: Oh yeah I forgot!
Afton: Tell me.
Sukamon: Uh…well it wasn’t nearly as pretty as you are of course, but we saw something fall into the old ruins with a Tentomon.
Afton: So when were you planning on telling us, next week? They must’ve seen Ben too, Palmon.
Palmon: Listen you two, can you take us there? It’s important that we find him.
Sukamon: Sure, okey dokey.
Palmon: No funny business!
Sukamon: Cross our heart.
Chuumon: And hope to die.
Palmon: Well of all the absolutely ridiculous things to say.
[At the edge of the island, they arrive and see another island floating along the ocean at the same pace just a few feet away.]
Sukamon: Right, over…there.
[AFTON and PALMON see the island.]
Afton and Palmon: Huh?
Afton: Oh well that’s great, just great. How are we supposed to get over there?
Chuumon: You’re the one with the big hat, you think of something! A gorgeous girl like you must have a big brain.
Afton: Thanks a lot, really.
Sukamon: Before you go, maybe you’d give us a big thank you kiss, huh?
[SUKAMON and CHUUMON blow a kiss at Afton.]
Afton: Oh please tell me they’re kidding!
[PALMON throws her vines across the water and grabs a tree.]
Palmon: Climb aboard quickly!
[AFTON grabs on and PALMON pulls and they fly to the other side.]
Sukamon: Oh, maybe we jumped the gun.
[They get to the other island.]
Afton: Oh, blech. Just the thought of that kiss is making me queasy.
Sukamon: It’s okay! We’ll wait till you come back!
Afton: Don’t hold your breath.
[AFTON and PALMON pull their bottom eyelid down and stick out their tongues at SUKAMON and CHUUMON.]
[In the labyrinth main room, BEN and TENTOMON walk in.]
Tentomon: Okay Ben, I highly suggest putting an end to this architectural tour.
Ben: As I mentioned before, I’m gathering information. I’m sure this place is crawling with clues.
[BEN looks and sees a giant Black Gear in the ground spinning.]
Ben: Look! It’s one of Devimon’s Black Gears.
[They run over to it.]
Tentomon: So it is.
Ben: Know what I think? If we keep this Gear from turning we’ll completely jam that creep up.
Tentomon: Or even better, we could not do that. Wouldn’t that be fun? And then we can go look for the others like we should’ve done in the first place.
Ben: Wait a minute this is the same writing we saw the last time. Remember?
[Flashback to BEN and TENTOMON in the control room in the factory.]
Ben: It made me realize that in DigiWorld, basic data is a living, viable substance.
Ben: All that data is stored on my hard drive. If only there was a power source here.
Tentomon: Get a power source, stop the Gear, is ‘find our friends’ on that list?
[BEN sees lit lights above.]
Ben: Huh, those lights are getting power from somewhere. Hey, an outlet! Check it out.
[BEN plugs his laptop into it and the laptop starts up.]
Ben: It works!
Tentomon: [sarcastically] Oh, goody.
[BEN sits with his laptop, looks at the wall and types.]
Ben: Now, let’s see if I can decipher this.
[Outside the ruins, AFTON and PALMON are in the bushes.]
Afton: Here are the old ruins. Let’s just hope that giant kissy-faced lemon custard was telling the truth.
Palmon: One way to find out.
[They jump out of the bushes and walk into the main room to see BEN typing and TENTOMON sitting.]
Afton: It’s them!
[TENTOMON turns around.]
Afton: Tentomon! And Ben! Hey!
Ben: Uh…hi, Afton.
Afton: Finally a friendly face. Where’s the rest of the gang? Ben: I have no idea.
[BEN returns to typing.]
Afton: But, uh shouldn’t we like look for them or something? What are you doing anyway?
Ben: Right now I’m trying to decipher these hieroglyphs.
Afton: Well can’t that wait, if you don’t mind my asking.
Tentomon: That’s what I keep telling him, ‘let’s go look for the others’ I say, but does he listen to me? No.
Afton: All right, get up Ben.
Ben: I’m sure the key to figuring everything out is in here.
[AFTON is getting ticked.]
Ben: The question is does each glyph represent a letter, a word, or a phrase. Hm, I’ll have to cross reference the characteristics.
[Later on, AFTON, PALMON, and TENTOMON are bored out of their minds.]
Afton: Ben, any idea how long this is going to take? I mean can we go some time before winter sets in? Ben!
Tentomon: Ben, your friend is asking you a question.
Afton: Yeah and her rear end’s getting cold sitting on the stone floor doing nothing.
Ben: Hm, oh wait! Wait! Yeah, yeah that might work!
[AFTON stands up.]
Tentomon: Uh-oh, Ben!
Afton: Are you ignoring me, you computer geek pipsqueak!?
Ben: Okay, so if I make the variable constant and search for viral patterns.
[AFTON gets madder.]
Ben: Hey! Here’s something!
[A map of the labyrinth appears on the screen.]
Ben: Prodigious! These ruins are a gigantic maze!
Afton: I’m leaving! Right now!
[AFTON starts to cry and BEN turns around.]
Tentomon: Oh don’t cry, Afton.
[PALMON cries too.]
Tentomon: Oh no, not you too! Ben, do something!
Ben: Do what? My laptop can’t do everything!
Tentomon: I don’t know, tell her you’re sorry!
Ben: Sorry? For what?!
Afton: I can’t take it anymore! I haven’t had anything to eat, my feet are killing me, and a giant lemon custard tried to kiss me…and all I want to do is get out of here!
Palmon: We just want to leave, is that so wrong?!
[PALMON runs over to BEN.]
Palmon: Honestly, Ben, how can you be so insensitive?
Ben: Insensitive, what do you mean?
Palmon: You ignore us while you poke away at your computer.
Ben: I’m not ignoring you; I’m doing something ultra-important, like maybe saving this world. If I can just decipher these hieroglyphs then maybe we could…
Afton: Just keep your stupid hieroglyphics!
[AFTON runs into the maze crying.]
Tentomon: Afton, wait!
[TENTOMON flies in after her.]
Palmon: You just like playing on your computer, that’s all.
Ben: You think I’m just playing around here?
Palmon: I only think you like computers more than people.
[BEN sees they’re the only ones in the room.]
Ben: Don’t look now, but Afton and Tentomon are gone.
[PALMON stops crying.]
Palmon: Now what do we do? Hm?
[AFTON is running in the labyrinth, crying.]
Afton: I hate this place! I’ll never recommend this resort to anyone!
Tentomon: Afton wait!
[She trips and falls on her face and TENTOMON flies to her.]
Tentomon: Oh dear! Afton! Afton, are you alright?
Afton: I’m not a bad person.
[She gets to her knees.]
Afton: So why is all happening to me?
Tentomon: Afton, we’ve got to be careful. One wrong turn and we can get lost in here.
[AFTON stands up.]
Afton: All I want to do is get back home, that’s all!
[She runs into a corridor.]
Tentomon: Please wait! I really think we ought to find our way back!
[He flies behind her.]
Afton: I want my own bed! My own bathroom! I’m even starting to miss my baby brother!
Tentomon: Please, stop running off!
[Outside the labyrinth.]
Palmon: I don’t see them anywhere! Where could they have gone?
Ben: They didn’t go deeper into the maze, did they?
Palmon: That’d be my guess.
Ben: These deciphered hieroglyphs tell me the inside of these ruins is a giant labyrinth. So if that is the case, they could be lost in there forever.
Palmon: Forever? Oh…
[In the labyrinth.]
Afton: Hey uh, Tentomon.
Afton: You get the feeling we’re sort of going around in circles?
Afton: See this silly smudge on the wall? I remember passing it a long time ago.
Tentomon: You’re right.
Afton: Could it be that we’re lost?
Tentomon: I realize this is probably a bad time to say I told you so, but…
Afton: Oh quiet!
[She looks down the hall.]
[In the main room.]
Palmon: Oh I can't bear it, I’m going in!
Ben: And get lost too? No Palmon, we have got to use our heads first.
Palmon: But we can’t just leave them.
Ben: We won’t, but this is one super complicated maze. I’ve gotta try to get a handle on it. Then maybe I can help get them out.
[In the maze.]
Tentomon: Well, being lost isn’t so bad.
[AFTON drops her head.]
Afton: Mm, great.
Tentomon: Oh dear, are you hurt?
Afton: No, I’m fine, I’m getting used to it by now.
[She walks forward.]
Afton: If I’d just gone to cheerleading camp, none of this would’ve happened.
Tentomon: Let’s try a systematic approach to this. Maybe if we just keep turning to the left or something like that.
Afton: Why should I listen to you? It’s your friend Ben that got me into this mess in the first place.
[She turns and walks.]
Tentomon: Wait! Don’t be too hard on him! Yes he gets a little wrapped up in his work, he doesn’t always interact well with others, but he’s a good boy.
[In the main room.]
Ben: There they are!
[On the screen a red dot moves.]
Palmon: That’s Afton, that blinking light?
[He moves the pointer to the dot and they hear the two of them.]
Tentomon: No, no not that way.
Afton: Oh buzz off, leave me alone!
Palmon: That’s my girl.
Ben: I’ve homed in on her signal from the Digivice. We can hear her; let’s hope she can hear us.
[He puts on an operator earpiece.]
Ben: Ben to Afton, do you read me?
[In the hall Afton stops when she hears Ben.]
Ben: Repeat, do you read me?
Afton: Ben, is that you?
Ben: Alright it’s working! Okay Afton, I’m gonna navigate for you, so walk exactly where I tell you to.
Palmon: Don’t worry, it’ll be okay. He knows what he’s doing.
Tentomon: Is that you, Palmon?
Palmon: Just do what Ben tells you and you’ll be outta there before ya know it.
Tentomon: See, I told you Ben was a good boy.
Ben: Okay now take the first doorway on the right.
Ben: When you get to the end turn left, but be careful of the next room because there’s a big hole in the middle of the floor.
[AFTON steps on the floor and it crumbles and falls apart leaving a narrow edge on the sides.]
Ben: There should be a narrow ledge you can use to get across.
Afton looks and sees it.
Afton: Ben, did we have to take this scenic route?
[On the screen they cross and a yellow dot blinks before the false floor room.]
Palmon: What do you mean uh-oh?
[In the hallway.]
Afton: Kay, I’m ready, which way should we go?
Tentomon: Something has happened.
[In the main room the dot moves.]
Ben: I was hoping he was just a glitch, but there’s definitely something in that maze with them and it’s moving closer.
Palmon: Now I am starting to worry.
[In the maze AFTON and TENTOMON are awaiting orders and a hoof steps down, unnoticed.]
Afton: Ben, what’s with the silent treatment?
[The DIGIMON laughs.]
Tentomon: Did you hear that?
[TENTOMON looks for the sound’s origin.]
Tentomon: It sounded evil.
[AFTON listens for the noise.]
Centarumon: Tentomon, it’s been such a long time.
Tentomon: Oh no!
[CENTARUMON leaps the hole.]
Tentomon: Centarumon—half man, half horse—you really don’t wanna get on either of his bad sides.
[Centarumon has a Black Gear caught in his back.]
Afton: Huh, ah!!
Tentomon: Run Afton, run!
[They run and CENTARUMON chases.]
Centarumon: I like a good chase.
Ben: Left! Take a left!
Tentomon: Ben, we are quite anxiously awaiting your directions, are you there?
[In the main room.]
Ben: Another left, through the doorway!
Tentomon: This way Afton!
[They run into it and see it’s a dead end.]
Afton: Huh! Great job Ben, it’s a dead end!
Tentomon: Where do we go now, Ben? Ben? Hello?
[In the main room, BEN and PALMON are gone, leaving his laptop and earpiece there.]
[In the dead end room.]
Tentomon: We seemed to have lost contact with him.
[CENTARUMON runs closer.]
Centarumon: Oh really.
Tentomon: He’s back!
[CENTARUMON holds out his arm and from his palm four knives come out and make energy.]
Centarumon: Solar Ray!
[TENTOMON pushes AFTON down.]
[The attack busts through the wall.]
Afton: Look at my skirt!
Tentomon: Forget that now, get out of the way!
[They run to the other wall and CENTARUMON jumps in the room.]
Centarumon: Your bravery is noted, but that alone will not gain you any mercy.
Afton: What are you waiting for? Make yourself bigger.
Tentomon: If you mean you want me to Digivolve, I’m afraid that’s impossible.
Afton: What do you mean, impossible?
Centarumon: I’ll show you what it means, he cannot protect you, so you have to hold your ground and that’s truly impossible.
Afton: Stop talking and get growin’!
Tentomon: Oh how I’d like to, but if I’m separated from Ben I can’t.
[The ground starts to shake.]
Afton: Stop that! Can’t you see I’m in the middle of saying something?
[They see CENTARUMON isn’t shaking the ground.]
Tentomon: What’s that racket?
They see the wall behind them is being broken through by Ben and Palmon.
Ben: Get out of there! Hurry! Come on!
Afton: You don’t have to tell me twice!
[She starts to run out then CENTARUMON holds up his shooter.]
Palmon: Watch out Afton!
[PALMON moves in.]
Palmon: Palmon Digivolve to…
[She moves in front of CENTARUMON.]
Togemon: Leave my friends alone!
Ben: Afton, get back!
Tentomon: Leave this to me!
[TENTOMON flies in.]
Tentomon: Tentomon, Digivolve to…
[KABUTERIMON is so big he reaches the roof and AFTON is pressed against the wall.]
Afton: Oh! I forgot, when you get bigger you get a lot bigger, don’t you. Watch where you step.
Kabuterimon: Oh, uh sorry.
[BEN is pressed against the wall by TOGEMON and he has needles right next to his face and stomach.]
[CENTARUMON fires at them and they’re all sent out of the room.]
Afton: That’s one way to get out of there.
Ben: Yeah, but this is no time for us to start taking it easy.
[CENTARUMON steps out.]
Ben: Look, he’s here.
Afton: Yeah, I see him.
Kabuterimon: Leave them alone!
[CENTARUMON shoots at them again.]
Kabuterimon: Electro Shocker!
Togemon: Needle Spray!
[The attacks break and CENTARUMON’s Black Gear is sent flying out of him and is destroyed.]
Centarumon: That felt interesting.
Ben: One of those Black Gears fell out of his body.
[CENTARUMON lifts his head and shoulders up.]
Centarumon: Where am I?
Afton: Are you a good Digimon now?
Centarumon: Hm? What? That device on your bag.
[AFTON looks at the Digivice.]
Centarumon: I’ve seen it before.
[In a room of the maze, a Digivice insignia is on the wall.]
Centarumon: It is the mystical symbol of the Digivice. These ruins are its temple and I am its guardian.
[BEN and AFTON take out their Digivices and look at them.]
Ben: Well that certainly looks familiar.
Centarumon: The Digivice is a preserver of the light, the last line of defense against the darkness that threatens existence.
Afton: I didn’t get that, but I’m starting to think they’re more than just a cool accessory.
[Behind them, LEOMON steps in.]
Centarumon: Leomon, why are you here?
[The kids turn.]
Leomon: To destroy them, the children.
Leomon: I warn you Centarumon, do not interfere with me.
[LEOMON jumps forward to the kids.]
Centarumon: No Leomon.
Afton: Ah! I can’t look it’s so scary!
[She covers her face.]
Afton: Well maybe a peek.
[She moves her fingers. CENTARUMON caught the blow, and CENTARUMON and LEOMON stay in that position.]
Ben: Whoa, time’s standing still here.
Centarumon: I said no, Leomon, the children possess the Digivice. As the guardian of its temple I must protect them as well.
Leomon: Protect them from me? Good luck.
[He prepares his fist.]
Leomon: Fist of the Beast King!
[CENTARUMON jumps out of the way and LEOMON punches the wall.]
Centarumon: Solar Ray!
[The ray sends LEOMON into the wall.]
Centarumon: Now let’s stop this madness before one of us is hurt. Leomon?
[LEOMON throws a fire fist at CENTARUMON throwing him into the wall.]
Leomon: The children must be…destroyed.
[AFTON puts her bag in front of her face in defense, and the Digivice’s screen glows.]
Afton: You must mean some other children!
[It stops LEOMON.]
Ben: Your Digivice, it stopped him in his tracks.
[BEN points his Digivice at LEOMON and AFTON does as well.]
Afton: Bad kitty! Out! Go on, out!
[The light sends LEOMON running away.]
Afton: Well that got rid of him. These things really are kind of amazing.
Ben looks at his.
Ben: A preserver of light against the darkness.
Afton: Can you order a pizza with it? I’m still starving.
[Back in the main room.]
Ben: Centarumon, do you know how to stop the Black Gear?
Centarumon: No, I’m afraid I have neither the strength nor the knowledge to oppose Devimon and the powers of darkness.
[BEN looks at the Gear.]
Afton: Are you still going on about that? When do we start looking for something to eat?
[BEN is on his laptop again.]
Ben: Guess I’ll just have to keep deciphering and analyzing these two sets of hieroglyphs. I’m sure all the answers are in here somewhere.
Afton: Excuse me isn’t this where I came in? You’re not seriously starting all that again, not right now.
Ben: Just a Nano.
Afton: This Black Gear.
[AFTON walks over to it.]
Afton: Who cares about that dumb, old thing? All I want is lunch!
[She kicks it and it stops then reverses.]
Afton and Palmon: Huh?
[Outside the island they’re on is moving back to File Island while the other keeps going. The KIDS and DIGIMON run outside.]
Ben: Look, the process has reversed itself.
Ben: Excellent work Afton, it just goes to show you that sometimes the simplest solution is actually the best.
Afton: That’s not much of a compliment.
[On the other island SUKAMON and CHUUMON are there.]
Sukamon: Hiya! I knew you couldn’t keep away.
Afton and Palmon: Uh!
[SUKAMON is hopping up and down to stay in their view.]
Sukamon: So, we gonna go on a date or what? Come on, what’s your phone number?
Afton: Man he is persistent.
Sukamon: At least blow us a kiss!
Afton and Palmon: Okay!
[AFTON and PALMON pull their lower eye lid down and stick their tongues at them.]
Sukamon: Aw come on! Do it like ya mean it! Ya know you like us, ya know you do! Please!
