[KIDS and DIGIMON are shown walking in sewer]
Joe: Ok, everybody, let’s sing the song that Agumon wrote for us!
All: Digimon eat and Digimon fight, Digimon Digivolve and fight all night.
Palmon: Singing sure is fun!
Agumon: Now let’s try some solo performances, starting with Afton.
[KIDS stop walking and make faces.]
[AFTON, delighted, closes her eyes, and begins to sing rather badly…]
Afton: Oh give me a home, where the buffalo roooooooam!
Michael [sings]: Avoiding your drone!
Afton: Hey, come on, I had music lessons for three years.
Rylan [innocently]: Oh you did? Did it help?
Ben: Hey, Afton, you should get a refund, that’s what I think.
Alyssa: Be nice, guys.
Amree: Then let’s sing as a group!
Joe: Let’s go!
[The KIDS all begin to march and sing]
All: Digimon fight and Digimon fly, Digimon Digivolve an—
Amree: Ahh! Stop it!
[Everyone abruptly stops, AMREE starts crying.]
Biyomon and Agumon [worriedly]: Awwww…
Joe: Amree, are you all right?
Jaren: Yeah, what’s the matter?
Amree: Well, some water fell from up there…
[Another drop of water falls from the ceiling and onto her shirt.]
Ben: [points to the wet spot on AMREE’s shirt] That made you scream?
[AMREE sheepishly wipes off water as JOE and the others look on worriedly.]
Amree: I used to sing at home.
[A very long clothes line is shown, with lots of white clothes pinned on. AMREE later appears, pinning up the clothes]
Amree: I used to sing to myself all the time when I would do my chores, especially when I’d hang clothes to dry outside, I’d sing really loud ‘cause…nobody could hear me then.
[AMREE’s eyes water]
Agumon: It’s ok to miss your home, Amree. What do you miss, Joe?
Joe: Hmm? [Shows JOE taking a bath] I miss playing sports and then taking a nice hot bath.
[Shows JOE leaning back in the tub too far, losing his balance, and falling back in the water with a yell.]
Rylan: Games…my games…[show RYLAN playing video games] I wasn’t far from beating Jaren on my video games.
Jaren: [crouches and grins] Beating me Rylan? Gee I don’t think so. Maybe in your dreams, kiddo, hahahaha!
[Meanwhile, RYLAN is pretending to play games with a blank expression, lost in his own world. JAREN continues laughing, over his laughing AGUMON speaks]
Agumon: So you don’t miss anything from home, Jaren?
[JAREN instantly turns serious]
Jaren: Well, actually, now that you mention it…I’ve…been dreaming about Sundays…[shows grill with sizzling meat]…when my dad cooked steaks! Mmmm! Makes my mouth water!
Michael: [pushes up glasses] I miss doing my homework. If I fall too far behind I might have to go to a—junior college!
Afton: I don’t miss school…but I do miss going on vacation, mm! [shows AFTON removing her hat on a clear sunny day on the beach, drinking from a bottle of coke as seagulls soar in the sky]
Afton: Nothing beats having a cool drink on a summer day at the beach! I just love the ocean air!
Rylan: Wow, that sounds like fun, Afton!
Afton: It is!
Alyssa: I miss being in musicals and performing on stage.
[Show ALYSSA on a stage singing.]
Gatomon: Lyss, that sounds fun!
Ben [irritated and impatient]: Get a grip! I miss accessing satellites to look at the stars and planets.
All: [sigh, depressed.]
Agumon: They really do come from another world!
Gabumon: That is why they are depressed.
Gomamon: Poor kids.
[Show dark tunnel, noises]
Tentomon: Quiet! Listen everyone!
Gomamon: They’re really disgusting Digimon who live down here in the sewers.
Joe: That’s gross!
Gatomon: And so are they.
Rylan: Are they really strong?
Agumon: No, they’re weak, but smelly, just wait till they get closer!
Michael: Then what do you say we leave? Or, am I the only one who doesn’t want to get stomped by stinky sewer-dwellers?
[PATAMON and GATOMON make a noise of fear. Show a mass of NUMEMON approaching from farther down the tunnel]
Agumon: And there are so many of them…
[NUMEMON are quickly approaching at this point]
Agumon: [alarmed] Hurry, RUN!!
Joe: If they’re not strong why do we have to run from them?
Agumon: You’ll see! Keep running!
A Numemon: Let ‘em have it!
[NUMEMON are in hot pursuit and start flinging gross pink sludge at the KIDS and DIGIMON]
Palmon: These sewer-dwelling Numemon were like totally hygiene-deficient. They love throwing Nume Sludge at you…and they have bad breath, too!
[KIDS running for dear life]
Gabumon: Let’s keep moving!
[Sludge splats on the wall]
[Absolute confusion follows, hard to make everything out]
Michael: We gotta get outta here!
Amree: Move it, move it!
Ben: Get going!
Rylan: Hey! [skids to a stop in front of a tunnel exit] This way!
[KIDS madly dash in, panting, and keep running; the NUMEMON follow. The DIGIDESTINED and their DIGIMON make it outside in the bright sunlight and sigh with relief. The NUMEMON, once seeing the sunlight, scream, stop, and immediately retreat.]
Gatomon: The only thing that’s able to drive ‘em away is the sunshine!
Afton: Thank goodness!
[Shows the group walking. They come across a field of vending machines. Panting, they then gasp in surprise.]
Gatomon: Vending machines?
Afton: There must be thousands of them!
Michael: I’d say under a hundred.
Ben: Or…maybe just fifty.
Rylan: How did they get there?
Afton: I bet there’s enough snacks to last us a lifetime…at least.
Joe: Afton, they probably don’t work. Don’t you remember the phone booths?
Palmon: Hey that could be, I bet it’s a trick, Afton.
[AFTON runs down toward vending machines, laughing excitedly and leaving everyone behind.]
Afton: I won’t accept that!
Michael: [shouting after her] Even if they’re real, you know they’re not plugged in!
Amree: You can’t stop her…she’s so stubborn.
[After browsing, AFTON chooses a machine]
Afton: Yay, soda. You want one?
Palmon: No, I don’t!
Afton: You don’t have to bite my head off. Hmm…mmm hmm!
[AFTON inserts a coin and the whole front of the vending machine slams down to the ground. PALMON and AFTON let out a yell and run out of the way. A NUMEMON is inside]
Numemon Leader: Hey, cutie pie, haha!
Palmon: It’s their leader.
Afton: Their leader?! He couldn’t lead a pack of show poodles, even with his doggie breath!
Numemon Leader: Hey let me take you out on a date.
Palmon: I think he likes you. It’s gotta be the hat.
Afton: What? What are you thinking? I wouldn’t go near that short, slimy, sewer-sliding sludge-slinger!!
Palmon: Afton, you’ll make him mad.
Afton: Who cares! Besides, we’re safe in the sunlight—
[Thunder is heard, clouds roll across the sky towards the sun]
Palmon and Afton: Uh oh…
Afton: Um…we were!
Numemon Leader: How dare you call me short? The date’s off!
[NUMEMON LEADER throws sludge, AFTON and PALMON yell.]
Palmon: Not again!
Numemon Leader: Party time!
[More NUMEMON come out from vending machines to join in with the fight.]
All the others: Ahhhhh!!!
Afton and Palmon: [run like crazy toward the others] Ahhhhh!!!
Amree: How did they get here?
Afton: [running by] Who cares, run, run!
[AMREE, JOE, and AGUMON, who had just been standing around gaping, gasp and start running with the others.]
Jaren: All right, everybody, let’s split up!
All: [pant and run]
[Shows AFTON and PALMON being chased by three NUMEMON, including the LEADER]
Numemon Leader: Heartbreaker! [hurls sludge at them, PALMON and AFTON run behind trees] Pelt her!!
[PALMON slides out from behind the trees threateningly]
Palmon: Poison Ivy!
[The three NUMEMON stop, holler, and then make a hasty retreat.]
Afton: Palmon! Thank you!
Palmon: But Afton-? I didn’t do anything, why’d they run?
[The answer to this becomes quite apparent, as huge, thick, yellow legs stop behind them with a loud thud. PALMON and AFTON let out a cry and run out of the way.]
Palmon: It’s Monzaemon!
Monzaemon: Come visit us at Toy Town.
Palmon: Monzaemon looked like a cute big ol’ teddy bear—but he wasn’t very cuddly.
Afton: Uh, Palmon? Is he a Digimon, too?
Palmon: Yes. He’s in charge of a special place called Toy Town. Toy Town is a place where he takes care of all the abandoned Digimon toys. And those toys love him.
Afton: Well, he looks harmless…
Palmon: He always has been.
Monzaemon: I must say, so pleased to make your acquaintance.
[Show a view looking down on the treetops of the forest area they are in. An explosion blasts a huge cloud of dust and smoke into the air. Then shows the normal view, with PALMON and AFTON running—again]
Afton: Wait! He’s attacking us!
Palmon [sarcastically]: You think?
[Laser beams jet out from his eyes and blaze a trail after them]
Monzaemon: Please, come spend a fun day in Toy Town with me!
[MONZAEMON stomps after them, randomly shooting his laser beams out of his eyes. AFTON and PALMON cry out while running.]
Monzaemon: Why are you running, did I startle you? Sorry!
Palmon: Something’s wrong, he’s never acted like this!
Afton: He is now!
Numemon Leader: [hiding, he beckons to them] Come here, Cookie, I’ll protect you!
Afton [huffy]: No thanks!
Palmon: [Notices MONZAEMON’s approach] On second thought…
[PALMON and AFTON gasp and jump into the shallow crevice.]
Monzaemon: How about a kicking game of soccer, you two?! [steps over crevice]
[NUMEMON LEADER, PALMON, and AFTON let out a stifled frightened cry, then stand up once he passes]
Afton: He’s gone!
Palmon: Something bad must have happened in Toy Town.
Numemon Leader: Since I saved you, lady, now will you go out with me? Huh?
Numemon Leader: Ohh! [Slams down on his face in desperation.]
Afton: C’mon, let’s go to Toy Town.
Palmon: But our friends—!
Numemon Leader: Wow, she’s so feisty, what a girl!
[Show Toy Town, and AFTON cries out in surprised delight.]
Palmon: There it is, Afton, Toy Town!
Afton: Wow. It really looks beautiful! Kinda like—a big amusement park!
[Show Toy Town close up, with wide paved streets, and multi-colored houses with turrets, lined up in an organized fashion. AFTON and PALMON are shown wandering through the streets with interest.]
Afton: It doesn’t look like anyone’s here.
Palmon: Something’s not right here.
[JOE runs past, being chased by a toy car]
Joe [in an odd voice]: Oh boy! This is fun! This is really fun!
Joe: Boy I’m really having a lot of fun now! [skids to a stop and runs past them again.] Fun! Fun! This is fun!
Afton: It doesn’t look like a lot of fun.
[AMREE runs by, chased by a monkey toy clashing cymbals together.]
Amree [in an odd voice]: This is so exciting, this is really exciting!
Palmon: Just what’s going on here?!
[BEN jogs by with arms outstretched, pursued by a massive army of toy soldiers.]
Ben: Oh joy. What a delightful activity. This activity is really delightful.
[AFTON and PALMON look at him in the distance.]
Afton: Hey, Ben doesn’t talk like that…
[JAREN runs by, chased by a train]
Jaren [acting weird]: Boy oh boy, is this really great or what? [laughs oddly]
[MICHAEL runs by, with a giant bird pursuing him and trying to peck him.]
Michael: This really rocks! Forget books, this really rocks!
[RYLAN runs by, chased by a helicopter toy.]
Rylan: Ha ha. You can’t catch me. You can’t catch me. You can’t catch me, you can’t catch me, ha ha ha!
[ALYSSA runs by, chased by a toy doll]
Alyssa [in a weird voice]: I’m having so much fun! Yay! I’m really having fun!
Afton: That’s weird. Everyone sounds like a bunch of zombies. How strange!
Palmon: They do!
Afton: Ah well…they always were a little weird…
Palmon: I wish I knew what was going on here, it’s kinda creepy.
[Through a window, a locked toy chest is seen. From inside, yelling can be heard.]
Agumon [voice is muffled]: Hello?! Can anyone hear us out there?!
[AFTON and PALMON, walking by, exchange glances.]
Agumon: Joe?! Help! Somebody get us outta here!! Hello? Help!!
Palmon: It’s coming from inside that chest!
Afton: Agumon? Is that you?
Palmon: Are all our other Digimon in there with you, Agumon?
Gabumon: Yes! We’re all in here!
Afton: What happened?
Gatomon: We were running from the Numemon.
[Show JOE and AGUMON running away from three NUMEMON.]
Agumon: Then Monzaemon came along.
[MONZAEMON scares away NUMEMON with laser blasts, then turns to JOE and AGUMON with glowing eyes.]
Agumon: We tried to fight back…
Agumon: Pepper Breath! Pehh!
Monzaemon [angry]: Mmmm!!
Agumon: It’s no use, my flame’s not working. Run!
Monzaemon: Hearts Attack! Those two!!
[Blue-green heart bubbles shoot out and two capture JOE and AGUMON.]
[Show AMREE and BIYOMON running]
Monzaemon: You’ll see! Toy Town is the greatest place to be!
Biyomon: Spiral Twister! Pah!
Monzaemon: Hearts Attack! Those two!!
[Two hearts envelope AMREE and BIYOMON as they make noises of alarm.]
Monzaemon: At Toy Town, we just ooze fun.
[At different location…]
Tentomon: Super Shocker!
Gabumon: Blue Blaster!
Patamon: Boom Bubble!
Monzaemon: Mmmmm—Hearts Attack! Them all!!
[Show everyone in the heart shaped bubbles. All are moaning, except Gomamon, who looks rather content.]
Monzaemon: So all of you will now serve us! You’re all going into our community toy box. Our toy box is only filled with children!
[Flashback ends now]
Afton: Thinking back, you’re right. [Show brief flashback of JAREN’s and MICHAEL’s odd behavior] The toys have been playing with them.
Palmon: Tell us, what changed Monzaemon?
Biyomon: We don’t know!
Afton: Well, can’t you get out of that box and help?
Gomamon: No, we’re locked inside of here!
Gabumon: It is up to you two. You must be the heroes this time.
Palmon: Just what do you mean?
Tentomon: You must defeat Monzaemon.
Afton: You must be kidding!!
Agumon: That’s right! We can’t get free until you save the others.
Palmon: We have to do this.
Afton: Oh do we have to?
[They walk outside.]
Palmon: I have to tell ya, this isn’t good. Monzaemon’s hearts aren’t supposed to attack, only give heart hugs, which give people such a good feeling that it makes them want to help others.
[Show RYLAN and helicopter again, running by.]
Rylan: Mmm hmm hmm mmmm hmm, you can’t catch me, ha ha ha!
Afton: This is so ridiculous!
Palmon and Afton: Oh!!
[The toy monkey clanging cymbals is at their feet. AFTON loses her temper.]
Afton: Mmm! Stop that noise! Right now!
[AFTON stamps her foot, and the monkey falls over. MONZAEMON appears with balloons.]
Monzaemon: It’s such a happy day in Toy Town!
[AFTON and PALMON cry out in surprise]
Monzaemon: You’ll like these! Everyone likes the balloons!
Afton: Hey yeti-teddy! Whatever you’ve done to my friends—fix it now! Or you’ll be in big trouble!
[MONZAEMON’s eyes glow, but AFTON doesn’t notice. PALMON does.]
Afton: You understand me?!
[Suddenly realizes what’s going on]
[Show the explosion, and AFTON and PALMON running yet again]
Afton: This isn’t funny! I’m being chased by a giant stuffed bear!
Monzaemon: Now, now. Don’t run away from Toy Town!
[Meanwhile, he’s still shooting off his laser beams. A mob of NUMEMON jump out of a dust cloud angrily.]
Numemon Leader: I’ll save ya, honey!! Hah!
[Sludge lands on MONZAEMON’s forehead, he growls, and they continue their attack]
Palmon: You turned him down, and he still helped.
[MONZAEMON stomps and sends all the NUMEMON flying.]
Afton: Well, Palmon, what can I say, when you’ve got it, you’ve got it.
[MONZAEMON stomps again, with the same effect.]
Afton: Oh no! I don’t think the Nume-sludge is working.
[MONZAEMON glares and whacks the NUMEMON.]
Palmon: I can’t let them fight alone!
Afton: Palmon, be careful!
Monzaemon: Take this!
Palmon: Poison Ivy!
[PALMON’s attack wraps around Monzaemon, but proves ineffective when he yanks free and sends her flying.]
Afton: Palmon! Please—talk to me!
Palmon: My Poison Ivy’s not strong enough.
Monzaemon: Mmmmm—Heart Attack!!
[The blue hearts appear and begin chasing a frightened AFTON and PALMON. NUMEMON come to the rescue and together form a gigantic wall to block the hearts.]
[The hearts float away, taking the NUMEMON with them.]
Palmon: Time to take it to the next level. I may be a lady, but I am not a push over. Time to show this Digimon some manners!
[PALMON makes a mean, angry face.]
Palmon: Palmon, Digivolve to…
[TOGEMON is a large green cactus with arms and wears bright red boxing gloves.]
Togemon: You’re goin’ down, big boy! Arrr!
[Smacks fists together. AFTON looks on in amazement. TOGEMON struts forward with attitude.]
Togemon: You wanna dance with me?
Togemon: [growls louder]
Monzaemon: [growls again]
Togemon: [growls and delivers the first punch]
[The two begin punching it out like crazy. MONZAEMON attempts to use his laser attack, but TOGEMON punches him in the face, so it’s ineffective.]
Togemon: Needle Spray!
[So many needles go into MONZAEMON that he looks like a pincushion, and he lets out a yell. The zipper on his back bursts open, and a Black Gear flies out. He then moans and collapses. TOGEMON reverse Digivolves back to PALMON. PALMON then collapses into a sitting position, exhausted. AFTON runs over.]
Afton: Palmon, you’re fabulous!
[PALMON giggles and gives AFTON a hug.]
Palmon: My stem is bruised.
Afton: After everyone was freed from the spell, and the trunk, Monzaemon told us what really happened.
Monzaemon: Usually, when kids get tired of their toys, they just abandon them and throw them away! It’s so sad! So I created a home for these toys. Then…I wanted to make the toys more important to their owners, and I found a way to let their owners walk in their shoes!
Afton: How? By turning kids into zombies?
Michael: I don’t think he really intended to do that, Afton.
Monzaemon: You’re right, Michael, I didn’t mean for that to happen, I really am sorry about it. Please accept my apology, I’ll never do that again—really.
Joe: [grins and scratches the back of his head] Monzaemon, we know that you would never hurt us on purpose.
Monzaemon: Of course not. But an evil feeling came over me.
Alyssa: It had to be that Black Gear!
Joe: Y’know, I’m beginning to take this whole Black Gear thing a little personally. They cause a whole lot of trouble before disappearing.
Afton: That’s right. But me and Palmon made Monzaemon good again.
Palmon: We’re a great team!
Monzaemon: My friends—there’s only one way I can truly show my gratitude, and that’s by giving you all a real heart hug!
[The KIDS are rather alarmed]
Michael: Oh boy…
Monzaemon: Here we go! This is my gift to you. Hearts Attack—with a hug!
[Each get captured by a heart bubble—now pink in color—and go floating around, giggling and all smiles. NUMEMON LEADER pops out of a manhole for the sewers.]
Numemon Leader: Dumpling, a kiss for your hero?
Afton: [cheerfully, since she is still in her heart bubble] No.
Numemon Leader: Wow, what a girl! She’ll come around. Hoo-hoah!
[NUMEMON LEADER falls on his face, and all laugh.]
