Called On Account of a Rainy Day

Called On Account Of A Rainy Day



OPENING SCENE:



EXT DAY SHOT OF TOWNSVILLE SKYLINE



NARRATOR: The city of Townsville! A happy, harmonious place, where everybody gets along!



BLOSSOM'S voice: You are so wrong!



BUTTERCUP'S VOICE: No, I'm not!



BUBBLES: Well, what about me? It's not easy being blue!



[She pouts. A little rain cloud appears over her. BUTTERCUP blows it away.]



BUTTERCUP: Blue schmoo! You're living on easy street, sister!



[BUBBLES gives her an angry glare for a few seconds.]



BUBBLES: Well, if you think I have it so easy, you try being me for a day!



BLOSSOM: That's it! We'll switch roles for a day! I'll be Buttercup, because I know how easy it'll be. Bubbles, I'm afraid you have it hardest -- you have to be me!



BUBBLES: Piece of cake!



HOTLINE SFX: Bzzt bzzt bzzt!



[The PPG look happily OFF SCREEN at the Hotline.]



CUT TO:



EXT DAYTIME CLOSEUP OF THE PPG FLYING AT THE CAMERA WHICH STAYS AHEAD OF THEM AS THEY FLY AWAY FROM HOME



BUBBLES: Okay, Girls, be sure to follow my lead, because I'll be leading this mission, using my leaderly abilities.



BLOSSOM: I'm gonna give 'em a knuckle sandwich.



BUTTERCUP: I hope we don't have to fight too hard. I don't want to wrinkle my pretty dress.



[The PPG exchange superior glances.]



CUT TO:



INT SHOT OF A BANK BEING ROBBED BY HIM, MOJO, AND FUZZY



[The PPG crash down through the ceiling and land.]



BUBBLES: Give up, bad guys! You don't have a chance of being victorious over the Powerpuff Girls!



[The three villains slowly turn around.]



HIM: A doh. A doh doh doh.



MOJO(feminine voice): Oh my, it seems we've been interrupted.



NARRATOR: Sorry, people. This role-switching has already been done in Best Rainy Day Adventure Ever. The network says that's a no-no. Everybody go home.



[The villains leave, grumbling.]



HIM(feminine voice): You do a very good me.



MOJO: Thank you. Mojo put much practice into it.



BLOSSOM: Aw, come on. This would have been fun.



NARRATOR: It's not up for discussion. I'm shutting off the mike and lights.



[The daylight changes to a deep nighttime blue. The CAMERA stays with the PPG as they fly outside.]



BLOSSOM: At least we've got moonlight.



BUBBLES: I guess it could be worse.



[It starts raining.]



CUT TO:



INT SHOT OF UNLIT UTONIUM KITCHEN



[Three dripping PPG float in.]



BLOSSOM: The light switch doesn't work.



BUTTERCUP: At least the food in the fridge is still cold. Submarine sandwiches okay for you guys?



BUBBLES AND BLOSSOM: Sure.



[The PPG sit at the table and start eating.]



BUTTERCUP: What do we do now? I've got that
gotta-do-an-episode-or-go-crazy-feeling.



BLOSSOM: Maybe one of the villains could help us come up with an idea.



BUBBLES: But who?



BUTTERCUP: What about Sedusa? She's vain enough to want the attention.



BLOSSOM: Good idea.



CUT TO:



INT SHOT OF SEDUSA'S HOME



SEDUSA: What's going on? First it's dark, then it's light, then it's dark again!



[The PPG crash down through the ceiling.]



BUTTERCUP: Hi, Sedusa! Could you help us finish our episode? That dumb narrator shut things down.



BUBBLES: He said our story was too much like Best Rainy Day Adventure Ever. Pffft!



SEDUSA: It's raining out. We'll have to do it inside. (Whispers something to BLOSSOM and BUTTERCUP)



BLOSSOM: I like it!



SEDUSA: Bubbles, you can be the Narrator.



[BUBBLES beams with joy. SEDUSA trots OFF SCREEN, then returns carrying a biscuit tin.]



SEDUSA: Woo--oo--oo--oo! (lowering the tin to the floor): Booo--ooommm!!!



BUTTERCUP: Goodness gracious! What was that?



BLOSSOM(seriously): The war with Canada has begun.



[SEDUSA begins opening and closing the tin's lid like a mouth.]



SEDUSA(imitating William Shatner): People of Townsville -- the people of Canada love you -- and we are here to make your country -- part of ours.



BUTTERCUP: Eat Powerpuff knuckles, Shatner!



SEDUSA: Zap! Zap! Zap zap!



BUBBLES: The city of Townsville is under attack! Will the enemies' laser cannon fry the Powerpuff Girls?



BLOSSOM: No! We will not be Kirk's Fried Chicks!



[BLOSSOM and BUTTERCUP dodge laser beams. BLOSSOM runs up, grabbing the tin and shaking it upside down. She stomps on the floor.]



BLOSSOM: Take that, William Shatner!



SEDUSA(imitating William Shatner): Oh! I never dreamed -- that I would be -- the disposable crewman.



BUBBLES: And so the day is saved -- thanks to the Powerpuff Girls.



[The four bow to the CAMERA.]
