Millions of years ago, the evil Sledge tried to steal the greatest power in the universe, the Energems. But an alien named Keeper entrusted them to dinosaurs. As for Sledge, he was blasted deep into space. Now the Energems have been found, and Sledge returns to battle a new team of heroes. They are Power Rangers Dino Charge!
(Amber Beach, California, one year ago. A soon-to-be high school Senior named Arnold Charles Edwards is mowing his parents lawn. He has earbuds in, connected to an MP3 player. One of his best friends, Shelby Watkins, walks over. He doesn't see her.)
Shelby: Ace. Ace. Hey Ace!
(Shelby walks up behind him and taps him on the shoulder, startling him. He stops the mower, pauses his MP3 player and removes his earbuds.))
Arnold (Ace): Geez, Shelb. Don't startle me like that. Shelby: Sorry. Listening to some tunes? Ace: No, a podcast. Movie reviews. Shelby: Anyway, I've got great news. I got a job, at the Dinosaur Museum. Ace: Way to go. You know, my cousin, Bree, in Gray Lake, had a paleontologist for a science teacher in high school. Dr Tommy Oliver. Shelby: Really? Makes me wish I lived in Gray Lake. Ace: Yeah, but, they don't have your dinosaur museum. Shelby: That's true. Ace: Maybe I should get a job. It's hard to keep up with everything on just my allowance. Not to mention I could finally buy a car. Shelby: And you wouldn't have to borrow your Mom's minivan. Ace: Not very impressive when you're on a date. Probably why none of my relationships ever lasted too long. Shelby: Or you were just too picky. Ace: What can I say? I like smarter girls. Some guys go for cheerleaders, me, I was all for debate team, chess club, honor society girls. Look at when we dated, briefly. Shelby: Yeah. Ace: It might have lasted, but, the one time we kissed, it was more like I was kissing my sister. That's how I think of you, like my sister. Shelby: I know. Ace: Even if you did stop me from dating your other best friend. Shelby: You don't know Erin like I do. I've know her since elementary school. You and I have only known each other since ninth grade. Ace: True. I better get back to mowing. There's a new video game out Tuesday that I want and if I don't finish the lawn, I don't get paid. Shelby: OK, later, Ace.

(A few weeks have passed. Ace goes to the Dinosaur Museum to see Shelby at work.)
Ace (thinking): With as much as she knows about triceratops, she'll probably be working as a tour guide.
(Ace looks around the whole museum, but doesn't find Shelby. Feeling a little hungry, he heads for the Dino Bite Café, the small restaurant within the museum. He starts looking at the menu, when someone bumps into him.)
Voice: Oops. Sorry. Ace: Shelby? Shelby: Ace? What are you doing here? Ace: Looking for you. I figured you would be giving tours, not serving burgers, Shelby: Yeah, so did I. Ace: At least you got your favorite dinosaur on your name badge. Shelby: Yeah.
(A woman, not eve ten years older than Ace and Shelby, enters the café.)
Shelby: I'd better get back to work. That's my boss. She's in charge of the whole museum. I'm pretty sure she found a lot of the fossils.
(Ace looks at her.)
Ace: So, she's obviously pretty smart? Shelby: Yeah. Ace: Just my type. (thinking) And not bad looking either. Shelby: Ace, she's probably eight years older than us. Ace: So? It's not like she's old enough to be my mother. Besides, haven't you heard of cougars? Shelby: She's not that old. Ace: OK, so she's more of a cougar cub. Shelby: Well, at least wait until after you turn 18 before you try anything. The last thing I need is for the museum to close because of a scandal about her possibly being in a relationship with an underaged boy. Ace: As someone a lot wiser than me said, "Try not. Do not do not. There is no try." But, I will wait. At least until we graduate. Give me time to try and find a job. A woman like that shouldn't be the one paying for her man. Unless that's what she's in to.
(Shelby just rolls her eyes and ges back to work.)
(Somewhere in space, sixty-five million years ago, one small spaceship is being pursued by a larger one, which is towing a large number of asteroids. The smaller ship fires in defense. A monster named Fury appears to be in command.)
Fury: Lucky shot, Keeper! Get the weapons systems back online before Sledge gets here! Wrench, what's taking so long? Get those lasers fixed now!
(A metallic alien, Wrench, is working.)
Wrench: I'm trying. There's 10 million giga-volts going through this. It could blow up the whole ship. I have to be careful.
(The true master of the vessel, an armored bounty hunter named Sledge, comes onto the bridge.)
Sledge: Wrench, you pathetic weakling. Out of my way! Wrench: Master Sledge!
(Sledge makes the repair himself, without using any tools.)
Wrench: Whoa! Sledge: We will capture Keeper! That mangy little cockroach, he's right where I want him. Lock onto his ship.
(Sledge is interrupted by Poisandra, a female alien with a heart-shaped head.)
Poisandra: Sledge-ums, so that's the Keeper creature that's stopping us from getting married? Oh, please, allow me to finish this. Fury: Why do you listen to that heart-shaped nitwit? Sledge: Watch it, Fury. She's tougher than she looks. (to Poisandra) Go right ahead, Poisandra. Poisandra: Yippee! (singing) Do-re-mi-fa-so-la-ti--
(A Vivix, one of Sledge's foot soldiers, stands in front of her.)
Poisandra: Excuse me, you, in front, you're blocking my view.
(Sledge blasts the Vivix.)
Sledge: Can you see now, my dear? Poisandra: Ooh, you are so sweet. Now for the finale! (singing) Do-re-mi-fa-so-la-ti! (spoken) Fire!
(Sledge's ship fires several blasts at the smaller ship, finally hitting it. It starts to descent towards pre-historic Earth.)
Poisandra: Whoo-hoo, that was fun! Sledge (to Fury): Bring me the Energems or I'll destroy you, too! Fury: Yes, Master Sledge.
Sledge: Finally, the Energems will be mine, and I'll rule the universe!
(The smaller ship crash lands. its sole occupant, a cloaked alien named Keeper, looks for his precious cargo.)
Keeper: Where are they? They've got to be here. I must find them.
(A shadow appears over Keeper.)
(The shadow has been cast by a Tyrannosaurus Rex.)
(The T Rex roars, but Keeper is not afraid.)
Keeper: I mean you no harm. Gather the bravest among you. I need your help.
(Understanding Keeper, the T Rex leaves.)
Keeper: Thank you.
(Keeper resumes his search, through the wreckage of his ship. He seems to spot something.)
(Keeper finds one large crystal, pulsing with energy. Clearly though, it wasn’t what he was looking for.)
Keeper: Oh, no.
(Keeper puts the crystal aside. He keeps looking.)
Keeper: Wait. There it is.
(Keeper opens a case, containing thirteen smaller crystals.)
Keeper: Ah, the Energems.
(Nearby, Fury has landed, and is searching for Keeper.)
Fury: I can smell your rotten scent, Keeper.
(He soon finds the wreckage of Keeper's ship.)
Fury: Ah, there's his ship.
(Fury draws his sword.)
Fury: Where are those Energems? They've gotta be here somewhere! I will find them!
(Fury then sees Keeper, lying, apparently lifeless, on the ground.)
Fury: Ah, Keeper, ha. You finally met your fate. And just to make sure you're destroyed once and for all...
(Fury prepares to make sure Keeper is truly dead, when he sees the Energem case.)
Fury: Wait, the Energems. Yes... at long last. Master Sledge will become invincible!
(Fury grabs the case and leaves, right before Keeper opens his eyes. this was all part of his plan. Up on Sledge’s ship, Sledge is walking in between two rows of cells, one of several cell blocks, full of captured fugitives. He's looking at more wanted posters. Poisandra follows him.)
Sledge: The bounty of 10,000 space bullion. Poisandra: Excuse me! Sledge: After we get the Energems, he might be worth catching. Maybe this one, too. Poisandra: No more hunting down outlaws and collecting those stupid asteroids. Sledge: They're not stupid! Those asteroids and outlaws are gonna make me the richest bounty hunter in the universe. And then maybe we'll get married. Poisandra: What do you mean "maybe"? We are getting married. Sledge: Oh, brother.
(They enter a small docking bay, where a one man shuttle pod is arriving.)
Poisandra: I'm amazed Fury found his way back. Sledge: He better have those Energems.
(Fury emerges from the pod.)
Fury: I've done it. Keeper is history. And now, the Energems are all yours, Master Sledge. Your long search for the ultimate power is finally over. Sledge: The entire universe will grovel before me.
(Sledge opens the case, but the Energems are not inside it. Instead, it's the larger crystal and its glowing red and crackling with energy.)
Sledge: What?! It's a bomb!
(The crystal explodes, rocking the ship. Fury is knocked back into the shuttle pod, and a Vivix is thrown into the launch button. The shuttle returns to Earth.
Sledge: I'll make you pay for this, Keeper, if it's the last thing I do!
(Another explosion causes the ship lose the load it's towing.)
Sledge: My asteroids! No!
(Down below, thirteen dinosaurs have gathered around Keeper.)
Keeper: Gather 'round, my friends. You are the mightiest creatures on the planet. I need your help. These are the legendary Energems. Their incredible power transcends space and time. Good and evil. Your spirits will bond with them and keep them safe. If they fall into evil hands, the entire universe will be in great danger.
(Keeper levitates the thirteen Energems, each one flying to a different dinosaur, bonding with it.)
Keeper: Ah, now the Energems will be safe.
Fury (v/o): Keeper! Keeper: Fury! He survived.
(Keeper looks for a place to hide, but Fury finds him,)
Fury: Keeper, you're mine!
(Fury's sword clashes with Keeper's staff. Fury knocks Keeper down.)
Fury: We're stuck on this rock thanks to you, Keeper. What did you do with the Energems? Keeper: You'll never find them. Fury: Wrong answer!
(A crash is heard.)
Fury: What? Impossible.
(The sky is filled with an asteroid shower.)
Fury: Sledge's asteroids, they're falling. I have to get out of here.
(Fury runs, looking for cover, as more of Sledge's asteroids hit the surface. Presumably, one of those asteroids is the one carrying the Dino gems, which would one day power the Dino Thunder Rangers. As a cloud of dust approaches him, Keeper just closes his eyes and holds his ground. Earth is rendered lifeless, for a time. Sixty five million years pass. In the Amber Beach Dinosaur Museum, a tour is underway.)
Guide: The world was teeming with life, but asteroids hit the planet and the dinosaurs went extinct. That was 65 million years ago. Now just follow me over here. As you can see...
(One visitor isn’t interested in the tour. A young man named Tyler Navarro is more interested in where some of the fossils were found.)
Tyler: Huh, those are volcanic caves. Hmm, that's not far. Probably worth a look.
(Tyler stops a museum employee, Chase Randall, a New Zealander, temporarily living and working in California, who is pushing a cart.)
Tyler: Excuse me, do you work here? Chase: Sure do, mate. Tyler: I'm looking for this cave. My dad did some exploring here 10 years ago.
(Chase looks at a map in Tyler's journal.)
Chase: Let's see... oh, Sampson Caves. That fossil was found there. It's about 15 miles north of the city. Tyler: Awesome, thanks. Chase: Yeah, no worries.
(Tyler takes q quick selfie with a dinosaur skeleton. Chase is about to enter the Dino Bite Cafe. He sees two attractive young ladies.)
Chase: Hey. Girl: Buzz off. Chase: Ouch.
(Chase enters the cafe.)
Waiter: Here's your order.
(Shelby is looking for the table that placed the order she's carrying. Someone bumps into her, causing a roll to fall off her plate, and into a bowl o soup, being eaten by her boss, Kendall Morgan.)
Shelby: Oops, sorry. Kendall: Shelby.
(Shelby sets the tray down on a table.) Shelby: Um, T. Rex ribs on rye, lightly toasted. Um, Tuna-dacta melt on an egg roll, hold the mayo. And a Bronto burger with fossil fries, light salt. Uh, anything else? Customer: We haven't even ordered yet.
(Chase watches while drinking a soda. Ace, also in the cafe, watches. When he isn’t staring at Kendall.)
Shelby: You didn't need to order 'cause I read your minds. Enjoy.
(Shelby backs away from the table.)
Ace: Way to cover, Shelb. Shelby: No time to talk, Ace.
(Chase has left the cafe, and Shelby follows him.)
Shelby: Chase, wait up! Chase! Chase: Hey, Sheri. You're bringing me a present? Shelby: It's Shelby. So, Chase... going, uh, fossil hunting? Chase: Yeah. Supposed to be a great find.
(Shelby sees a picture on the cart Chase is pushing.)
Shelby: Triceratops? You're digging up my favorite dinosaur. See, its right here.
(Shelby points to the triceratops on her name badge. But Chase has other things on his mind.)
Chase: Let's just cut to the chase... and check out a movie. Shelby: Did that line work on New Zealand girls? Chase: Nope, doesn't work on them either. Shelby: Instead of a movie, how about you just take me on the dig with you? Chase: Sorry, no can do. Museum policy.
(Another museum employee, Koda, is waiting on a loading dock. Shelby was prepared.)
Shelby: Koda, look what I've got. You're favorite, Bronto burger, rare. Just let me go with you guys and it's yours.
(Koda hungrily takes the burger, and starts eating.)
Shelby: So I can go? Koda (mouth full): Go where?
(Shelby sits down on a crate.)
Shelby: Man, I'm never gonna get to go. Hey!
(Koda lifts the crate, and Shelby, with surprising ease. He places the crate on a truck as Kendall arrives.)
Shelby: Miss Morgan. Kendall: I think your party in booth four is missing a dinner roll. And, no, you can't come. Kendall and Shelby: Museum policy. Shelby: Triceratops head grew to be seven feet long. Only two of the horns were really bone. One was just ligament. Give me a shot, Miss Morgan, please? I know as much about dinosaurs as anyone on your crew. Kendall: For your information, Chase and Koda are very highly trained museum personnel.
(Chase is balancing a skate board on his head, while Koda locks ketchup off his hands and face.)
Shelby: They hide it well. Kendall: You have no idea.
Kendall: You do have a job to get back to, right?
(Shelby looks disappointed, but she has a plan. She hides, and then, once the truck is leaving, she quickly jumps on board, hiding under a tarp. Elsewhere, Tyler arrives at Sampson Caves.
Tyler: Yup, that's the cave.
(Tyler gears up and starts spelunking, above a lava flow.)
Tyler: Easy, this would be a bad time to miss a step.
(He gets to some solid ground and starts looking. He finds something.)
Tyler: Huh, is that a tooth?
(A roar distracts him, before he keeps looking. He sees something that starts chasing him. He hides from it in a smaller cave, letting it pass by him. As it does, he turns around, and sees what's in the cave wall.)
Tyler: Whoa, a dinosaur fossil. Awesome.
(Something red catches his eyes, within the fossil.)
Tyler: What is that?
(Tyler pries it out of the wall with a knife.)
Tyler: Huh, some kind of a... crystal.
(Tyler takes the crystal and keeps exploring. Elsewhere, Koda is unloading the truck; Shelby comes out from under the tarp, but remains hidden.)
Shelby (silently): Surprise, here I am. Now you have to give me a job on the dig. Yup, that'll do it.
(Shelby goes back under the tarp, and just in time. A figure in a black hooded cloak opens a small crate. Seeing what's inside, which has a pink glow, he laughs, rather evilly, and takes the crate.)
Shelby (silently): He’s stealing it.
(Shelby comes out of hiding, seeing Chase and Koda.)
(Chase and Koda don’t hear her, so Shelby pursues the thief on her own. The thief sets the crate down on a rock.)
Thief: Yes, I finally found it.
(Shelby runs past the thief, behind him,)
Thief: Who's that?
(The thief turns around and sees nothing. Shelby is now hiding behind the rock.)
Thief: I must be hearing things.
(Shelby grabs the crate and heads back for the truck.)
Thief: Hey! Get back here!
(The thief fires several blasts of energy at Shelby, causing her to stumble and drop the crate.)
Thief: No one steals from me!
(Suddenly, Tyler swings in, and takes the crate.)
Tyler: Think again! Thief: No! Give that back! Tyler (to Shelby): Are you okay?
(Tyler helps Shelby up.)
Tyler: Hi, I'm Tyler Navarro. Nice to meet you, uh...
(Tyler reads Shelby's badge.)
Tyler: Shelby, uh, Triceratops. Catchy name. Shelby: Wh-- where'd you come from? Tyler: Oh, you know, just, uh, in the neighborhood. Shelby: There is no neighborhood. Tyler: I believe this is yours.
(Tyler hands Shelby back the crate.)
Thief: I don't have to hide! Time to destroy you!
(The thief takes off hi cloak. He's a large, blue and white alien, called Iceage.)
Shelby: What is that thing? Tyler: Don't know, met him in a cave. But he sure wants that box.
(Tyler reaches into his backpack for something to fight with. First, he pulls out a banana, and tosses it aside. Next, he pulls out a pair of underpants. He also tosses them aside. Finally, he pulls out a shovel.)
Shelby: What, you gonna dig us an escape tunnel? Iceage: Enough!
(Iceage fires a blast, but Tyler's shovel reflects it.)
Tyler: Oh, cool.
(Iceage fires some more, but Tyler uses the shovel to deflect each blast.)
Shelby: If my friend Ace would here, he'd probably say something like "That is so Jedi."
(Tyler sends a blast right back at Iceage, knocking him into a tree.)
Tyler: Score! Shelby: Nice hit.
(Unfortunately, that last blast ruined the shovel. Iceage gets back to his feet.)
Iceage: You'll pay for that. Tyler: Uh... your turn for an idea. Shelby: Uh...
(Shelby holds the crate in front of her.)
Shelby: ...Fire at us and... Uh, you might destroy your precious... thing in this crate. Tyler: You know what's in the crate? Shelby: I have no idea. Iceage: What I want will survive, you won't!
(Iceage fires more blasts. Tyler and Shelby are knocked down. Tyler looses the red crystal he found. A similar looking pink crystal was in the crate.)
Iceage: Two Energems! This is better than I hoped!
(The two Energems start glowing, as Tyler and Shelby reach for them.)
Iceage: Don't even think about it!
(Iceage freezes the two of them, their hands barely touching the Energems.)
Iceage: Looks like you're frozen in fear! Feeling a little frostbite? Now to smash you into a million pieces!
(The Energems thaw Tyler and Shelby.)
Iceage: You broke my precious ice?!
(Tyler and Shelby stand up. They see the dinosaurs the Energems bonded with. Tyler's red Energem was bonded with the T Rex, while Shelby's pink Energem was bonded with a triceratops. Blasters appear in their hands.)
Shelby: What is this? Tyler: I have no idea. But it looks like this goes in here.
(Tyler puts the Energem into a slot, and millions of years worth of stone and dirt falls away. The same thing happens with Shelby's Pink Energem. Tyler spins part of his blaster, and a shot is fired at Iceage.)
Tyler: Whoa. Shelby: Nice shootin', Tex. Tyler: Sorry, I don't know how to use this thing. Shelby: What'd you do? Tyler: I just started spinning the... thing and it started working, I guess.
(They both start spinning their blasters.)
Iceage: You're ruining everything!
(Tyler and Shelby both pull their triggers, but instead of blasts being fired, something strange happens.)
Shelby: What's happening? Tyler: I don't know. Look out!
(Tyler and Shelby are soon clad in costumes, each matching their Energem color. They have just morphed into Power Rangers.)
Shelby: What in the world? Iceage: What?! They've become Rangers! Shelby: You look great. Tyler: You, too! What happened to us? Shelby: I don't know. I feel a surge of power. Tyler: Me, too, it's awesome. Iceage: Give me my Energems! Tyler: No way. (to Shelby) I bet we could take him... if we just stick together. Shelby: Let's do it!
(Iceage fires more blasts, but Tyler and Shelby leap over them, then start attacking Iceage.)
Shelby: You’re right, this is awesome. Tyler: Definitely. Shelby: I’ve never felt such power.
(A roar is heard.)
Tyler and Shelby (both): Huh?
(A Red Zord appears.)
Tyler: What is that thing? Shelby: I think it's a T. Rex. Tyler: Look out!
(The T Rex Zord passes by, causing them to power down.)
Iceage: The T. Rex Zord, it can't be!
(The T Rex Zord picks up Iceage with its mouth, and tosses him away.)
Iceage: Let me go, you lizard!
(The T Rex Zord then leaves.)
Tyler: You all right? Shelby: Did we just fight an abominable snowman and almost get trampled by a T. rex? Tyler: Yup. Shelby: Okay. Just checking.
(Through the trees, Shelby sees the truck heading back to the museum.)
Shelby: Koda, Chase. There goes my ride. (to Tyler) You had a rope, shovel. You wouldn't happen to have a car?
(Tyler jingles the keys to his jeep. Soon, Shelby is reading the journal Tyler was using earlier.)
Shelby: So this is your dad's journal? Tyler: Yeah, uh, my dad disappeared 10 years ago on an expedition. Just vanished. I really miss him. Maybe tomorrow, maybe 10 years from now, but I'm gonna find out what happened to him? Shelby: So you were in the cave looking for clues? Tyler: Exactly. His journal says some creature was stalking him. Shelby: You think that icy thing was it? Tyler: No, I'm looking for this one. Shelby: Yikes.
(The drawing in the journal is of Fury.)
Shelby: Makes the monster we met look like the Tooth Fairy. (pauses) You know... you didn't have to jump in back there to help me... but I'm sure glad you did. Tyler: My dad used to say, "Helping is always the right thing to do."
(Shelby finds a picture of Tyler and his dad in the journal.)
Shelby: You look a lot like him. I hope I get to meet you dad someday.
(Tyler keeps driving, unknowingly passing by the very creature he's looking for.)
Fury: I smell Energems.
(On a ranch, a young man named Matt Griffin rides his horse around the property. He stops outside the barn.)
(Inside the barn, Matt's brother, Riley, is practicing swordsmanship. Matt uses his rope to open the door.)
Riley: Hey, bro. Matt: Playing Three Musketeers again? Riley: I'm not playing. Matt: Yeah, sure. Anyway, I need your help. Matt & Riley: Feeding the pigs. Riley: Right, right, again, um... meet you there. Come on, Rubik, let's go feed the pigs.
(The griffin's dog, Rubik, isn’t in the barn.)
(Riley tosses his sword into an old wheel, sticking perfectly out of the center of the hob, as he begins looking for Rubik.)
(Out in the field, Riley hears Rubik barking in the distance.)
Riley: Huh? Rubik! I'm coming, buddy!
(Riley finds Rubik, in the woods, just outside the ranch, barking at a boulder.)
Riley: What are you doing, Rubik? You scared me.
(Unfortunately, Rubik is not alone. Fury is there. Riley hides.)
Fury: Quiet, you filthy fur ball. I'll shut you up for good.
(Fury energizes his sword.
Fury: Hold still!
(Riley, not wanting to see his dog hurt, rushes out, and grabs a metal fence post, using it to block Fury's sword.)
Fury: What? Who are you!? Riley: Don't touch my dog! Fury: Get off me!
(Riley is ready for a fight.)
Fury: How dare you challenge me, human!
(Riley strikes several times, but his improvised sword is no match for Fury's armor.)
Fury: Take this!
(Fury knocks Riley down. Fury then fires several blasts at him.)
(Fury fires again, but this time, Riley deflects the blasts with his post. One blast, however, makes it through, knocking Riley down, and sending his post into the boulder, revealing a dinosaur fossil, and something else.)
Fury: The Green Energem!
(Riley quickly gets back to his feet, trying to free his weapon, like the fabled Sword in the Stone of Arthurian lore.)
Fury: Out of my way! That's my Energem!
(But the Energem has other ideas, and bonds with Riley through the post, transforming the piece of metal into a Dino Saber.)
Riley: What? Impossible. Fury: Enough playing around.
(Now that he has a real weapon, Riley is really ready for a fight.)
Riley: I'm not playing.
(Their blades clash, as the two combatants seem evenly matched, until Riley manages to knock Fury down.)
Fury: You'll pay for that!
(Fury fires another blast. Riley deflects it with his Dino Saber, causing a tree branch to fall on Fury. He quickly goes over to retrieve the Energem.)
Riley: What is this thing?
(As Riley holds the gem, he sees the moment, millions of years ago, when it bonded with a velociraptor.)
(Fury starts to emerge from under the branch.)
Riley: Come on, Rubik!
(Riley and his loyal companion leave.)
Fury: Get back here!
(Sometime later, Riley is getting ready to leave the ranch. His destination; the Amber Beach Dinosaur Museum. His transportation; a motor scooter that has seen better days.)
Matt: He's going to a dinosaur museum? So you really said he could go, huh? Mrs. Griffin: Just for the summer. Matt: Sure hope this thing makes it. I check the tires, engine oil. Found the old manual, just in case you need it. Riley: Big bro, I'll be fine.
(Rubik walks up, his head hanging in sadness.)
Riley: Oh, I'm gonna miss you, too, Rubik. Yeah? I'll miss you, too. I love you, Mom. And I'll miss those pig pens. I love you, bro. Matt: Thanks, man. Riley: Okay.
(Riley rides off. Elsewhere, Tyler and Shelby are still on their way back to the museum. Shelby is looking at the two Energems.)
Shelby: Why would both of these things be in dinosaur fossils? Tyler: Maybe the dinosaurs ate them. Shelby: You aren't serious. Tyler: Totally. You have a better theory, Miss Di-know-it-all?
(As they approach a bend in the road, they see Riley. His scooter has broken down.)
Shelby: Hey, what was it your dad said? Tyler: Helping is always... Shelby: The right thing to do.
(Tyler stops the jeep.)
Tyler: Hey, you need a hand? Riley: Oh, no, thanks, I think I found the problem. I just gotta stick to the old owner's manual, and I should be good to go, yeah?
(Unfortunately, a large truck passes by. The breeze it creates blows away the owner's manual. Soon, with his scooter tied to the back, Riley rides with Tyler and Shelby.)
Shelby: If I grew up on a ranch, I'd never leave. Tyler: Yeah, how great is that? Cowboys and roundups. Riley: Yeah, more like fixing fences and cleaning pig pens, but... Tyler: Hey, something's up.
(a car has overturned. A frantic woman waves down the jeep.)
Woman: Help, please! My husband, he's trapped, please.
(Tyler, Shelby and Riley approach the car.)
Shelby: Hang on! Tyler (to the woman): Are you okay? Woman: Yeah, help him. Riley: We're gonna get you out.
(Riley notices a small stream of liquid. He smells it.)
Riley: Guys, its leaking gas.
(Tyler and Shelby try to lift the car so Riley can pull the man free, but the car isn’t budging.)
Tyler: We can-- we can do this together. Oh! On three. One, two, three.
(The three of them struggle to lift it. Suddenly, their energems start glowing. It gives them the strength, not just to lift the car, but toss it in the air.)
Woman: What in the world?
(The car explodes in midair.)
Riley: Whoa. Tyler: Oh, are you all right? Man: Yeah, thanks a lot. Woman: How did they do that?
(The three of them pull out their Energems,)
Tyler: Let me guess. You're going to the Dino Museum, right?
(Riley nods. Sometime later, they finally back at the museum.)
Tyler: Is that the museum? Shelby: Yeah. Go to the loading dock.
(At the loading dock, Koda and Chase have also returned.)
Koda: I very hungry. Chase: Koda, you're always hungry.
(Tyler's jeep arrives moments later.)
Shelby: Koda, Chase!
(But the two employees have vanished quickly.)
Shelby: Where'd they go? Tyler: Look at that. Riley: Oh, cool. (It's a large dinosaur head. Tyler climbs up by it.)
Tyler (to Shelby): Take a pic for me? Shelby: Really? Now? Tyler: Yeah.
(Tyler poses in the dinosaur's mouth. He grabs a tooth, and it turns, opening a hidden panel.)
Shelby: It swallowed him! Riley: Whoa, a secret passage.
(Riley follows Tyler down the passage.)
Shelby: Hey! Wait! Guys?
Shelby reluctantly follows them, before the passage way closes. A slide delivers her safely t the bottom, where Tyler and Riley are waiting.)
Riley: I think it's some kind of lab. Shelby: I've been serving burgers here for a year and never had a clue this was down here. My friend Ace would probably call this the Bat Cave. Tyler: Hey, check this out.
(Tyler has found a small alcove, with sets of crystals. There are twp other Energems already there, black and blue.)
Shelby: They're just like ours.
(When Shelby's hand gets close enough, her Energem instantly flies into position. Tyler and Riley's do the same thing.)
Riley: It looks like they're some kind of... power source.
(A noise is heard behind them, and Keeper appears, still alive after sixty five million years.)
Keeper: They are Energems. Tyler: Stay back. Shelby: Who... what are you? Keeper: My name is Keeper. I assure you, I'm quite harmless. Energems harness untold powers of the universe.
(Keeper uses his staff to show what happened when he arrived on Earth.)
Keeper: Long ago, I entrusted them to guardian dinosaurs. But when the dinosaurs went extinct, the Energems were lost. Tyler: Until... we found them. Keeper: Exactly. And the Energems have chosen to bond with you.
(Tyler, Shelby and riley each get a vision of the dinosaurs their Energems bonded with.)
Riley: Why would they bond to us?
(Before Riley's question can be answered, three more arrive in the lab.)
Shelby: Koda? Chase! Miss Morgan?
(Kendall steps forward.)
Kendall: You fought to defend a stranger at great risk to yourself. That's why the Red Energem chose you, Tyler. Your discipline and intelligence have given you the skills to protect others. The Green Energem was very wise to choose you, Riley. Shelby. Why the Pink Energem chose you... is anyone's guess. Shelby: Hmm? Riley: Okay, but... Energems, dinosaur spirits, and bonding, uh, I'm sorry, but this all sounds a little bit unbelievable. Kendall: Show them.
(Koda and Chase reach out their hands. The black and Blue Energems fly to them. Koda gets the blue Energem, and Chase the black one.)
Kendall: I helped Keeper track down Chase after he bonded to his Energem. Then we found Koda. Koda: Welcome to our team. Chase: You’re officially Power Rangers. Shelby: Power what? Keeper: The Energems have given you magnificent power. And the dinosaur spirits give you strength. Kendall: Five Energems have been found, but eight more are still lost. You must use your new powers to find them before they fall into evil hands. Shelby: Evil hands? You mean like that thing we fought in the woods? You expect me to fight monsters? Really? I just want to dig for dinosaur bones, not bond to one.
(An alarm sounds.)
Tyler: What's going on?
(A holographic map appears.)
Kendall: I'm seeing more seismic activity. Same location as yesterday. Chase: We better take a look. Tyler: I'm Tyler and I'm all in. Kendall: Good. Riley: This all seems... crazy, but... I'm in, too. Chase: Great. Koda: We go now.
(Only Shelby is hesitant.)
Tyler: Shelby? Keeper: You fought bravely to save the Pink Energem. Now the world needs your help. Kendall: It's her decision, Keeper. She's right to be hesitant. Clearly, this mission is just too dangerous... for a waitress. Go without her. Shelby: Wait! Sure, I'm a little scared. Who wouldn't be? But I know more about dinosaurs than any of you. Fact is... you need me. And I want to help. Chase: Don't forget your Dino Chargers.
(Shelby and Riley's Energems instantly come to them but Tyler's does not. A small alarm sounds.)
Kendall: Oh? Something's interfering with the Red Energem power. Keeper: Tyler, you must stay. Tyler: But, I... Okay.
(The others had into the woods.)
Chase: It's gonna be just ahead.
(They soon find the source of the seismic disturbance.)
Shelby: That's a volcano, and it's gonna blow.
(As the volcano begins to erupt, something emerges. Something that helped Tyler and Shelby earlier.)
Chase: Hey, guys, that's the T. rex Zord. (to Shelby) You wanted dinosaurs? Welcome to the Power Rangers.
(Back at the lab...)
Kendall: When someone bonds to an Energem, their Zord is awakened. Tyler: That thing is my... my Zord? Kendall: Yes. And it's destabilizing the red power. Keeper: You and your Zord share the spirit of the mighty Tyrannosaurus Rex. Kendall: He's heading for the city.
(Kendall grabs three battery-shaped objects.)
Kendall: These are Dino Chargers. I created them to contain the power of each Energem. When a Dino Charger runs out of power, we recharge it here. It will energize your weapons and morph you into battle mode. Tyler: I get to morph again? Cool. Kendall: Yes, I suppose it is "cool."
(Tyler’s Energem flies to his hand.)
Keeper: Kendall, tell the others to meet him at the city center.
(In the city, Iceage has returned.)
Iceage: I'll freeze the entire planet, and then I'll pry the Energems from their frozen hands! Vivix, rise!
(Groups of Vivix merge together, forming dinosaur-like monstrosities, Vivizords. As people flee, the T Rex Zord arrives, stomping its way through the Vivix. It engages the Vivizords.)
Iceage: You again?! Time to chill out!
(Iceage start freezes the T Rex. Tyler arrives.)
Iceage: I hope you came to give back the Red Energem! Tyler: You mean... this?
(Tyler throws the Energem at the T Rex Zord, freeing it from its frozen prison.)
Iceage: Ahh! You broke my ice! You'll pay for that. Tyler: It's morphing time! Dino Charger, ready! Morpher: >T. rex Charger, engage. Tyler: Energize. Unleash the power!
(Tyler spins the chamber of his blaster, and fires skyward. The power morphs him into the Red Dino Charge Ranger.)
Tyler: Whoa, now I feel Dino Charged! Ha ha, okay, Rexy. Let's check out your battle mode. Dino Charger, ready! T. rex Zord!
(Tyler throws a Dino Charger towards the T Rex Zord. It expands, and fits into the T Rex's Mouth. A row of spikes appears.)
Morpher: T. rex Charger, engage! Tyler: Yeah! Go for it, Rexy!
(The T Rex Zord charges into battle.)
Iceage: Destroy him! Tyler: Let's do this!
(T Rex engages the Vivizords again. Down on ground level, Tyler fights the Vivix.)
Tyler: Down you go, ha ha. You can't get me. How do you like this?
(Tyler sends several Vivix flying with a powerful kick.)
Tyler: Batter up, Rexy!
(The T Rex Zord destroys the flying Vivix with its tail.)
Tyler: Dino Saber! Ha ha, it's my turn, big guy.
(Tyler gets a running start off the T Rex Zord's nose, leaping at the Vivizord.)
Tyler: Power Slash!
(Tyler destroys the Vivizord.)
Tyler: I'll take it from here, Rexy. Great job!
(The T Rex Zord leaves. Tyler fights Iceage and the remaining Vivix.)
Tyler: Is my Energem power a little too tough to keep up with? Iceage: You'll never defeat me alone! Tyler: Did you say "alone"? Look again.
(The others have arrived.)
Riley: Tyler! Tyler: Better late than never. Koda: Look good, Tyler. Chase: For a first-timer. Tyler: Hey! Riley: Are you really in there? Iceage: No more games! I'll destroy all of you! Koda: That is not Fury. Chase: That's for sure. But whatever it is, it's about to learn who we are. It's morphing time!
(Shelby tries to take over.)
Shelby: Just try to keep up, guys. Dino Charger, ready!
(Her Dino Charger isn’t doing anything,)
Koda: It click. Shelby: Oh, thanks. All (minus Tyler): Ready! Morpher: Para Charger, engage! Stego Charger, engage! Tricera Charger, engage. Raptor Charger, engage. All (minus Tyler): Energize! Unleash the power!
(The others morph, just like Tyler did. Their Ranger colors match their Energem colors.)
Shelby: Wow, we look great together. Riley: Whoa! Iceage: You're still just weak humans! Tyler: Humans with dinosaur spirits! Iceage: I hope you're ready to lose! (to Vivix) Get them! Tyler: It's about to get wild.
(The Rangers engage the Vivix.)
Chase: Call me the hot shot. I never miss.
(Chase takes out a Dino Charger.)
Morpher: Para Charger, engage. Chase: Energize. Dino Morpher Blast.
(Koda has a different tactic.)
Koda: Dino Saber. Dino Charge Morpher, combine! Power Blast!
(Vivix try to overwhelm him.)
Koda: You not match for my... strength!
(Koda slams a Vivix to the ground.)
Koda: Power Blast, ha!
(Riley is showing off his sword technique.)
Riley: I knew these skills would come in handy. Oh, no, you don't. Whoa!
(Riley takes out a Dino Charger, and loads it into his Saber.)
Morpher: Raptor Charger, engage. Riley: Dino Saber, Power Slash!
(Riley slices through six Vivix with one strike.)
Shelby: Dino Blade Blaster, Rapid Blast!
(Shelby starts delivering a series of kicks.)
Shelby: One for you, one for you! Gotta be quicker than that.
(Shelby readies hr blaster.)
Shelby: Energize! Dino Morpher Blast!
(Shelby finishes off her group of Vivix.)
Tyler: I'll finish this guy myself. Iceage: Not if I finish you first!
(Tyler lands a series of blows.)
Tyler: One, two, three!
(But Iceage is still standing.)
Tyler: Hey, you, try this on for size!
(Tyler tackles Iceage, knocking him down.)
Tyler: Yes. Iceage: Lucky shot!
(Tyler shows off that it wasn’t just luck, as he knocks Iceage down again with a spin kick. The T Rex Zord returns.)
Tyler: Go, Rexy! Take out that last Vivizord!
(The T Rex Zord grabs onto the Vivizord's head, and spins around several times. When it releases, the Vivizord explodes.)
Tyler: Nice. Now let's finish this ice freak together.
(Tyler takes out his second Dino Charger.)
Morpher: T. rex Charger, engage. Iceage: I'll freeze you both! Tyler: Come on, Rexy. Let's do this, energize!
(Tyler leaps into the Zord's mouth. Iceage tries to freeze them, but to no avail.)
Iceage: It's not working!
Tyler: Dino Morpher Blast!
(Tyler leaps out of the mouth, flying towards Iceage.)
Tyler: Final Strike!
(A powerful blast strikes the frozen fiend.)
Iceage: I can't take the heat!
Tyler: Monster extinct.
(The T Rex Zord ejects the Dino Charger, which returns to its normal size.)
Tyler: Thanks, Rexy.
(Tyler takes the Charger out of his Morpher.)
Tyler: These are so cool. Shelby: We did great! Tyler: You, too, Rexy.
(The T Rex Zord snorts out steam.)
Tyler: No one's going to believe this.
(The Rangers return to the lab.)
Keeper; This just can't be. Chase: Hey, we're back! Tyler (to Riley): Can you show me how to handle a sword like that? Riley: You took out that giant monster, how about you show me? Koda: I'm glad you with our team now, but I-- Shelby: Don't worry, I'll still make you your favorite Bronto burger. Riley: Oh, my gosh, wait till my brother hears about this. Kendall: Incorrect. No one must know about what we're doing. Understood? Tyler: You got it.
(Chase walks over to Keeper.)
Chase: Keeper? That monster we fought was not Fury. You said there weren't any other monsters on Earth. Keeper: That monster belongs to Sledge, a ruthless bounty hunter. 65 million years ago, he drove me to hide all the Energems which Kendall's been helping me search for. Somehow, Sledge has returned. He'll destroy anything to get the Energems, including you.
(Up in orbit, Sledge's ship has indeed returned. Sledge himself is in one of the cell blocks.)
Sledge: Quiet, quiet! Which of you mangy, rotten, diabolical monsters can destroy me a Power Ranger?!

(OOC: I am placing this here now. It should move down after I am done to its proper position) (A few days later, on the edge of Amber Beach...) Quatra: I hope that I can find a fossil. Then I can join Miss Morgan. (Quatra starts digging. In Space...) Sledge: There's a weak signal in that area. I need a prisoner to go get it. (Minutes later, Amber Beach) Quatra: No fossils, but I found something strange. (Quatra retrieves a clear stone. It bonds with her instantly.) Wow. That felt... weird. (A monster arrives. Driller.) Driller: Great. That female has it. And I know the Rangers will be here shortly. (Amber Beach Dinosaur Museum.) Keeper: Could it be? Miss Morgan: What? Keeper: The Rainbow Energem has been found. Unfortunately, its powers were mostly drained when I gave the Energems to the dinosaurs. A spinosaur is the carrier of that gem, and the Spinozord must be found. (Miss Morgan calls the Rangers as Quatra dodges attacks.) Koda: What do we do? Tyler: Do we know where the zord is? Keeper: No. Someone has touched the Energem, but will not be able to morph. Tyler: We'll help the new Ranger. Miss Morgan, make a Dino Charger, and call us when it is ready. (Driller attacks as the Rangers arrive. Quatra's gem reacts.) Quatra: Rangers? That gem... (The Gem slowly changes colors. It is now becoming a mixture of Blue, Red, Green, Black and Pink.) Quatra: I feel different. (The three Rangers attack. Driller is distracted. Shelby goes to check on Quatra) Quatra: You're a Ranger. Shelby: Someone is here to help you. Quatra: I found this gem. (Quatra shows the Energem to Shelby. Shelby gets a call from Miss Morgan, and leaves.) Tyler: Rexy, get that monster. (The T-Rex zord attacks, but Driller is too strong. Meanwhile...) Miss Morgan: The Dino Charger is ready. Shelby: The Gem looked different. Keeper: The other Energems gave it a bit of a charge. It should be enough to call the zord. (Shelby returns to the fight with the Dino Charger.) Tyler: That thing is strong. Driller: I'll get these Energems, then get the one I was called to get. (Driller attacks, but is stopped.) Koda: Now what? (Shelby arrives. She heads to Quatra, and unmasks herself) Shelby: My name is Shelby, and my friends and I are Power Rangers. (Shelby hands Quatra a Dino Morpher.) Quatra: Is this what I think it is? (Shelby nods, and tells Quatra how to use it, before returning to the fight.) Quatra: Dino Charge, ready! Voice: Deinozord, ready. Quatra: Unleash the Power! (Quatra morphs to Dino Ranger mode.) Quatra: Dino Charge, Rainbow Ranger! (Quatra joins the attack. In space...) Sledge: Another one? How many are there? (There is no response.) (Quatra attacks Driller, using her blaster to shoot Driller.) Quatra: I hope we have something stronger than this. (Suddenly, a loud roar is heard. It's the Spinozord, awakening) Quatra: I have a zord? (The zord attacks Driller. Quatra can hear the zord in her head) Quatra: I understand. (Driller is struck. But he is still standing.) Sledge: The Deinozord! Great. Magna Beam! (Driller grows) Quatr: I'll handle this. Deinozord, Battle Mode! Voice: Deinozord, ready! (The Deinozord transforms to Battle Mode) Quatra: Okay, let's end this. (Quatra enters the zord. She attacks Driller.) Quatra: Deino Claw! (Driller is hit hard) Quatra: Deino Spear! (A spear shaped like a spinosaur's tail appears in the Spinozord's right hand.) Quatra: Deinozord, Final Strike! (Driller is beaten by the spear) Quatra: Monster, extinct. Tyler: She learned that quick. (Minutes Later, Amber Beach Dinosaur Museum) Miss Shelby: So, the Rainbow Gem is ours. Keeper: But it is still weak. Its true power will not come out without the other Energems.) Quatra: Miss Morgan? I can't believe it. (Quatra introduces herself to the team, and Miss Morgan)
Sledge: 65 million years, and you couldn't snag a single Energem? Poisandra: Not even one. Dreadful. Fury: Keeper gave them the dinosaurs for protection. Sledge: Keeper? That little cretin who blew up my ship? You haven't got him, either? You're about as useful as space trash, Fury!
(Sledge goes down to the cell blocks.)
Sledge: Quiet, all of you! I mean it! Keep it down, or you won't be fed tonight.
(A monster named Scrapper tries to escape, transforming into a mechanical hand.)
Sledge: Oh, no, you don't!
(Sledge fires, the hand turns back into Scrapper.)
Scrapper: Uh-oh! Sledge: So, Scrapper. You want to escape, huh? Scrapper: Uh, no, I was just-- Sledge: Bring me an Energem, and I'll personally chauffeur you to any galaxy you want. Scrapper: Of course, Master Sledge.
(Back in Amber Beach, in the lab beneath the museum, Riley is practicing his swordsmanship, deflecting tennis balls. he lets his guard down, briefly and one hits him. Nearby, Chase is working on his skateboard, and singing.)
Chase (singing): Maybe, I just can't say maybe.
(Shelby arrives. They have to dodge Riley's tennis balls.)
Shelby: Oops! Careful. Good morning. Chase: Hey. Don't you look sharp. Shelby: It is such a relief to finally come to the museum and not to have to look...
(Tyler enters, dressed in a cafe uniform.)
Shelby: ...like that. Tyler: Isn't it great? I get to be a busboy at the café.
(Kendall also arrives.)
Kendall: You're late, Shelby. Kendall: Please, Chase. This is a sterile laboratory, not a garage. Shelby: Why is Tyler dressed to work in the café? We're Rangers now, you know? Busy saving the world. Kendall: Sometimes you're busy saving the world, and other times you're busy flipping burgers. Today, it's burgers. That's how you blend in. No one will suspect you're Rangers.
(Koda enters, from a cave, yawning.)
Koda: Someone say, mm, burgers? Tyler: Koda, what, do you, like, sleep in that cave? Koda: Yes. My home. Kendall: Koda found the Blue Energem 100,000 years ago, during the Pleistocene era. Shelby: So, you mean... Koda's a... All: Caveman? Tyler: Awesome. Riley: Really, he's 100,000 years old? That's impossible. Kendall: Once he bonded to an Energem, he stopped aging. None of you will age when you're bonded to an Energem. Shelby: So I'll stay 18? This job's got some great benefits. Chase: And I will always look like this. Shelby: So there's some negatives, too.
(Soon, Koda is showing the new Rangers his home.)
Koda: My spear is good for hunting saber-toothed tiger. Tyler: You write on the walls? Shelby: Petroglyphs. It's a prehistoric form of writing. Koda: Yes. I... write...my story here. Tyler: That one. Who is that? Koda: That is Fury.
(Tyler leaves the cave.)
Koda: Very bad. He fight to steal... Energem. Riley: Yeah, yeah, yeah, he tried to take my Energem.
(Tyler returns, with his father's journal. He shows the drawing of Fury.)
Tyler: Guys, look at this. Is that him? Koda: Yes. Shelby: The one that was after your dad.
(An alarm sounds.)
Tyler: That doesn't sound good.
(Kendall is looking at a holographic display.)
Kendall: Several objects entering the Earth's atmosphere. Tyler: Sledge? Chase: Let's go find out. Koda: Come.
(The Rangers head into the forest.)
Tyler: This way!
(They encounter Poisandra, Wrench, Scrapper and a group of Vivix.)
Poisandra: Oh, look! It's the Rangers. Tyler: What are you? A walking lollipop? Poisandra: Well, it's lovely to meet you, too. Not. Allow me to introduce the most magnificent intergalactic bounty hunter in the universe!
(Sledge flies in using rockets in his armored suit.)
Poisandra: The one, the only, my future husband, Sledge! Sledge: This is a joke, right? You're the Rangers who destroyed my monster? Shelby: Power Rangers.
(Sledge and Poisandra laugh.)
Poisandra: Oh, please. Sledge: Yeah, right.
(Koda spots something.)
Koda: Fury. Up there. Tyler: That's him! The creature in my dad's journal.
(Sledge looks at Fury, who signals back, silently.)
Sledge: As I was saying, you're the troublemakers that stole my Energems.
(Keeper arrives, as if by magic.)
Sledge: Keeper, it's you. Keeper: The Energems belong to no one, especially not to you. Sledge: My dear old friend. You thought that blowing up my ship could stop me? Think again. I waited in deep space for millions of years for a comet to pass. I caught it with my Electronet and rode it all the way to Earth. But it was worth it, because, finally, I will destroy you and then I'll leave here with the Energems. Keeper: The Rangers possess the power of the Energems and the strength of ancient dinosaurs. If you try to take the Energems, you will be the one who is destroyed.
(Keeper vanishes again.)
Riley: Keeper? Shelby: No prob. We got this. I guess. Wrench: Looks like they're gonna cry! Sledge: Bring it on, weaklings! Chase: Dino Charger!
(Everyone but Tyler takes out their Dino Chargers.)
Chase: Tyler? Tyler? Something wrong?
(Tyler is focused on Fury.)
(Tyler takes out his Dino Charger.)
(Sledge's group opens fire.)
(A large cloud of smoke forms.)
Poisandra: Woohoo! Yay! You destroyed them! Tyler (v/o): Better get your eyes checked!
(The smoke dissipates, and the Rangers are fully morphed.)
Tyler: Let's do this!
(The Rangers return fire.)
Poisandra: Yikes! This isn't any fun!
(Poisandra runs away as the Vivix charge.)
Chase: One! Two... Three. The hotshot does it again. Ace: Quite an ego he has.
(Scrapper attacks Chase.)
Scrapper: I'll take you apart! Chase: I'd like to see you try!
(Scrapper sends Chase flying, causing him to power down.)
Koda: This no problem for caveman strength!
(Koda throws one Vivix into a few others. Scrapper attacks Koda next.)
Scrapper: Caveman strength is nothing against me!
(Scrapper throws Koda, he too powers down. Shelby is attacking Wrench.)
Shelby: Let's see how you like the power of the triceratops!
(With one swing of his ax, Wrench knocks Shelby down, and she also demorphs. Riley is showing off his swordsmanship.)
Riley: Have a piece of this! And a slice for you!
(Wrench goes four for four.)
Wrench: You're outta here!
(Tyler is dealing with Sledge himself.)
Tyler: Ever heard of deodorant? Sledge: The only thing I smell is your defeat!
(Sledge easily knocks Tyler down. But the battle has exhausted him.)
Sledge: I'm getting too old for this. Poisandra: Oh, no! Wrench: But Master Sledge! Sledge: One last warning, Rangers. Hand over the Energems in an hour, or I'll blast this planet to pieces. One hour!
(Sledge and his group leave.)
Koda: One hour. How long is that? Shelby: Not long. How do we stop him? Riley: We-- we need to come up with a plan to beat him together.
(Not all of Sledge's minions have left. Fury has remained behind. He takes off, on foot.)
Tyler: Something's going on. I'm gonna follow him. Shelby: Tyler, I know you want answers about your dad, but-- Tyler: It's not about my dad. Fury was signaling him. I've got a hunch. Chase: Forget your hunch, mate. We're a team now, we have to work together or we don't stand a chance. Tyler: We don't always have to be together to work together. Don't worry, I'll see you guys back at the base.
Shelby: Tyler. Wait. Chase: Just let him go. Chase: We're just gonna have to solve this without him, eh?
(The Rangers head back to the lab, unaware that Scrapper stayed behind.)
(Meanwhile, Tyler has stealthily followed Fury. But there is one thing he can’t hide.)
Fury: Wait a second.
(Fury sniffs the air.)
Fury: What is that stench? Smells almost... human.
(Fury approaches the boulder Tyler is hiding behind. Thankfully, for Tyler, Sledge shows up.)
Sledge: Fury! Come on! Get over here! Fury: Master Sledge! Is your plan on schedule? Sledge: So far, the Rangers took the bait and are leading Scrapper right to their base. Once he tells me the location, we'll scorch the place, and finally the Energems will be mine!
(Sledge, Fury and Wrench leave.)
Tyler: They're gonna destroy our base. And everyone along with it.
(Tyler takes out his communicator.)
Tyler: Kendall. Kendall, Chase? Hello?
(All Tyler gets is static.)
Tyler: I've got to warn them!
(Tyler takes off running. Meanwhile, the others are heading back to the museum, with Scrapper's mechanical hand following.)
Chase: Come on, guys, hurry!
(The Rangers head around back, taking the entrance in the dinosaur mouth. Scrapper watches.)
Scrapper: Ah, yes. That must be the entrance to their secret base. Sledge is gonna set me free.
Scrapper: Too late, Red Ranger. Secret's out. Oh, I can't wait to get back and tell Sledge the news.
(Scrapper transforms back into his mechanical hand, and takes off on a passing truck.)
Tyler: Not if I can help it.
(Tyler hops into his waiting jeep and takes off. Scrapper jumps off the truck, where a space pod is waiting.)
Scrapper: I hope this bucket of bolts makes it back to the ship.
(The pod starts to lift off, but doesn’t get very far. Tyler rams into it with his jeep, knocking Scrapper out of it.)
Scrapper: You'll pay for that! Vivix, rise!
(Six Vivix appear.)
Scrapper: Get him!
Tyler: Dino Charger, ready! Energize!
(Tyler starts fighting the Vivix.)
Tyler: Think you can take me on? No way!
(Tyler takes a Dino Charger out of his belt, and places it in his Morpher.)
Morpher: T-Rex charger, engage! Tyler: Dino Saber! Power slash!
(Tyler finishes off the Vivix with one attack.)
Tyler: You're next. Scrapper: I'll turn you to scrap. Tyler: Think again, dumpster breath!
(Back at the lab...)
Kendall: With Keeper's help, I've upgraded your Dino Chargers using the transmuter. Your Chargers will now be able to activate a high-strength armor mode called Dino Steel. Shelby: But will Dino Steel be tough enough to beat Sledge? Chase: Maybe, if Tyler hadn't left us.
(Kendall's computer chirps.)
Kendall: Alien DNA detected in the northwest quadrant. And Tyler's there, too. Shelby: Let's go!
(Back at the battle...)
Tyler: Energize! Dino Morpher Blast!
(Tyler fires at Scrapper, but Wrench shows up, blocking the blast.)
(The blast has only slightly hurt Wrench.)
Wrench: Ow, ow, ow! Oh, man, that stings!
(Wrench starts to attack Tyler.)
Wrench: You should've stuck with your friends. You've messed up everything! Tyler: I'm just getting started! You're pretty tough. Wrench: Tougher than you! Which isn't hard.
(One powerful attack from Wrench causes Tyler to power down.)
Scrapper: I was almost to the ship! You're gonna regret getting in my way, Red Ranger! Wrench: Say goodbye, Red Ranger!
(Several blasts cut off Scrapper and Wrench, as the other Rangers arrive.)
Chase: Tyler! Shelby: Are you okay? Tyler: Yeah. Yeah. I think so. Chase: You're fighting alone? You could've been destroyed. That's why you don't follow hunches. Tyler: You're right. But so was my hunch. Sledge wasn't going to give us one hour. That crusher creep followed you guys back to the base. He's heading off to tell Sledge where it is so they can steal the Energems. That's their real plan. Shelby: So if you hadn't followed Fury... Riley: Sledge would be making his way into our base right now, destroying everything and everyone.
Scrapper: Ugh, you wrecked my hubcaps. Koda: I am confused. Is hunch bad or good? Chase: Right now, it's good. Tyler: Let's do this... Together. Chase: Together. With a little help from Kendall. She's developed a new armor mode for us.
(Chase hands Tyler a new Dino Charger.)
Scrapper: Come on! Let's get out of here! I still gotta tell Sledge where their base is! Tyler: Don't count on it. It's Morphin Time! Dino Charger! Rangers: Ready! Energize! Ha! Unleash the power! Tyler: Power Rangers... Rangers: Dino Charge! Tyler: Okay, guys. Let's check out our new armor mode. Morpher" T-Rex charger, engage! Tyler: Dino Steel! Rangers: Armor on! Tyler: It's about to get wild! Scrapper: Vivizords! Rise!
(The Vivix combine together.)
Tyler: Chase, use your new Para Chopper. Chase: No problem, mate. Para Chopper, blast!
(Chase fires at the Vivizords.)
Riley: Let's try my new Raptor Claw!
(Riley attacks Wrench.)
Wrench: Is that all you've got? Riley: Not even close, tin can! Take this! Raptor Slash! Wrench: No!
(Wrench doesn’t last long against the Raptor Claw.)
Shelby: Can you handle my new weapon? Tricera Drill, coming through! Koda: Stego Shield! We see how tough you really are! Caveman, toss!
(Koda flips Scrapper head over heels.)
Chase: Guys, I could use some help here. Shelby: Time to see what my Zord can do. Dino Charger, ready! Summon Tricera Zord! Morpher: Tricera Charger, engage!
(Shelby's Zord, a pink triceratops, emerges from a canyon wall.)
Shelby: There she is! Tyler: Let's try this out! T-Rex, smash!
(Tyler attacks Scrapper with his T-Rex Smasher.)
Scrapper: That thing hurts! Tyler: This T-Rex Smasher has some bite!
(And Tyler means that, quite literally.)
Scrapper: Ow, ow, ow, ow, ow!
(The Vivizords fire at Chase, who leaps backwards.)
Chase: Too slow!
(Shelby rides through the streets on her Zord.)
Shelby: All right! This is the best! Chase: So, I see you met your Tricera Zord. Shelby: Yep! She's awesome. Just watch what she can do. Go, Tricera!
(Tricera Zord turns around, drilling through the Vivizords.)
Tyler: Good work, guys. Koda: We finish this. Tyler-- our powers are stronger together. Tyler: Combine them? Great idea, Koda.
(Tyler puts one of Koda's Dino Chargers into his Morpher.)
Fury: The Rangers just defeated Scrapper. Sledge: Oh, no, they didn't. Magna beam!
(One of the Vivix hits a button, activating the beam that restores and enlarges Scrapper.)
Scrapper: I'm gonna flatten you all! Koda: He big, like mammoth. Tyler: We'll take care of that. Dino Charger, ready! Summon T-Rex Zord! Morpher: T-Rex Charger, engage! Tyler: Nice entrance, Rexy. Scrapper: That prehistoric piece of junk is no match for me! Bring it on! Tyler: Jump, Rexy!
(The T-Rex Zord leaps into the air, landing on a rooftop.)
Tyler: Nice move. Kendall (v/o): Koda. Call your Stego Zord. I think I found a way to combine your Zords. Koda: That is great, Kendall. We stronger together. Dino Charger, ready. Summon Stego Zord! Morpher: Stego Charger, engage!
(The Stego Zord arrives out of an ice cap.)
Scrapper: This looks bad... Tyler: Whoa! Our Zords are awesome! Koda: Tyler, the three Zords will combine? Tyler: That's the plan. Dino Charge Megazord, Tri-Stego Formation! Morpher: Stego Charger, engage! Tricera Charger, engage! T-Rex Charger, engage! Zords combine! >Stego Zord, combine! Tricera Zord, combine! Dino Charge Megazord, ready!
(The three Zords have combined into one fighting robot.)
(Scrapper opens fire, but the Megazord is too fast.)
Tyler, Shelby, Koda: Time to take out the trash! Scrapper: You'll never defeat me! Tyler: Take this! Jump! The results are in, Scrapper. Scrapper: What? Tyler" You're garbage. You ready? Koda: Always ready. Shelby: Let's do it! Tyler, Shelby, Koda: T-Rex Zord! Final Strike! Tyler: Unleash the power!
(A powerful blast hits Scrapper, destroying him.)
Scrapper: I'm headed for the scrap heap! Tyler: Monster, extinct.
(Later, back at the museum, Tyler and Koda are working in the kitchen. Riley and Chase are waiting tables. Tyler keeps Chase from bumping into Riley.)
Tyler: Whoa! Watch it! Look out. Gotcha covered. Chase: Thank you. Oh, hey. Uh, look, I wanted to apologize. I was wrong to think you'd abandon the team. Tyler: I'm sorry, too. I shouldn't have been so quick to go off on my own. Fact is, we work better together. Shelby: Doesn't seem right. We save the world in the morning and serve them lunch in the afternoon. Tyler: You're crazy. It's a blast. Look... what I learned.
(Tyler flips a burger into the air. It doesn’t come back down.)
Riley: Don't look at me.
(Koda has caught the burger in his mouth, but suddenly spits it out.)
Koda: Sorry. Riley: Koda! Chase: Dude!
(Out in the cafe, Ace was watching, while keeping an eye out for Kendall.)
(It's a typical day at the Amber Beach Dinosaur Museum. The Dino Bite cafe is filled with customers, and one museum employee.)
Shelby: Your usual, Ace? Ace: You know me too well, Shelb.
(Ace, as usual, is staring at Kendall. Meanwhile, in the "Dino Lair", Tyler is looking at his father's journal. Riley is nearby practicing his swordsmanship. Keeper walks over to Chase, who is sitting at a computer.)
Keeper: Have you located any more energems? Chase: That's more Kendall's department, not mine. So I can’t be sure, just from taking a squizz at the monitor.
(Riley glances over, and shakes his head. He goes back to practicing. Tyler looks at his journal for a few more moments, then closes it and walks over.)
Tyler: Maybe it'll be more fruitful if we go searching the old fashioned way. Keeper: Perhaps. But, if Sledge were to realize what you were doing, he may try to do that himself, and send his minions to ambush you. Tyler: I think that's a risk we'll have to take. Besides, us staying here isn't accomplishing anything. Keeper: Very true. Chase: Koda and I will check the east side of town.
(Chase gets up and walks over to Koda's cave.)
Chase: Hey Koda, we're going out to look for energems. Koda (v/o): I come. Chase: Yeah, with me. Tyler: You coming, Riley? Riley: Yeah.
(Riley stops practicing.)
Keeper: I will inform Kendall and Shelby when they come down here. Riley: (to Tyler) I guess we got west? Tyler: Yeah. Let's go.
(The Rangers head out. Back upstairs...)
Shelby: You come here every day and just stare at her. Ace: Well, she is older than us. I mean, she's your boss. She doesn’t even know me. Shelby: This isn’t like when you asked out those girls in high school. Ace: Yeah. Asking out girls on the debate team, honor society, chess club and student council were easy. This, I don’t even know how to approach her. Shelby: Maybe buy her something. Say it's from a secret admirer. Ace: Good idea. No wonder you're one of my best friends.
(Ace finishes his food, hands Shelby a tip, then heads to the museum gift shop. Sometime later, on the east side of Amber Beach, Chase is riding his skateboard, while Koda follows on foot.)
Chase: So far, nothing definitive on this scanner. Koda: Wish I could smell energems. Chase: I doubt a bloodhound could smell them.
(Elsewhere on the east side of town, a young man is just arriving at a house, as he opens it and goes inside. This young man, named Jean-Claude Noblet, has just come home from school. He's a senior in high school. It's also his birthday.)
Jean-Claude: I'm home!
(The house is oddly quiet. Jean-Claude's father is on his way home, with a birthday present.)
Mr. Noblet: I can’t believe I forgot his birthday. Well, with everything going on at work, I shouldn’t be surprised.
(Mr. Noblet's car is soon stopped, by Fury.)
Fury: Give it to me. Mr. Noblet: What? Fury: The Energem. Mr. Noblet: What's an energem?
(Fury pulls Mr. Noblet out of the car. He sees a family heirloom, an old jewel, on a chain.)
(Fury takes the jewel, and throws Mr. Noblet to the ground.)
Mr. Noblet: Give that back! My grandfather found that! He gave it to my father, who gave it to me! And I’m going to give it to my son!
(Inside Jean-Claude's house, Jean-Claude can hear the commotion.)
(Jean-Claude goes back out of the house. On the porch, he can see what's going on a little from where he is.)
(Jean-Claude starts running towards them.)
Mr. Noblet: Stay back!
(Fury ignores Jean-Claude's approach. Fury holds the jewel up to the sun, before vanishing. Jean-Claude finally reaches his father.)
Jean-Claude: Dad. Are you okay? Mr. Noblet: I’m fine, JC. But, that... that thing, he took Granddad’s jewel. JC (Jean-Claude): Isn't that the jewel you told me about when I was little? About it being a family heirloom, passed down from father to son? Mr. Noblet: It is. And now that you're eighteen, I was ready to give it to you.
(Jean-Claude looks in the direction where Fury was standing.)
JC: Then I'll just have to get it back. Mr. Noblet: You wouldn’t stand a chance against that monster. JC: But we can't lose that jewel. It's been in our family for over 100 years. Mr. Noblet: It's just a rock. You're worth more than that to me. JC: But it's not just a rock. You told me that great grandfather found that jewel when he was in hard times just starting out in America. It helped our family survive. Mr. Noblet: That's true. The day he passed through Ellis Island, after coming over from France. He called it his good luck charm. Because the very next day, he met your Great Grandmother. JC: Then I'm going to get it back.
(Jean-Claude starts to run off.)
Mr. Noblet: Be careful.
(Elsewhere on the east side…)
Chase: That's weird. Koda: What? Chase: The scanner detected something for a second, but it disappeared. Koda: Maybe scanner not work well. Like Riley's scooter. Chase: One way to find out. Let's head to the location it detected something. Koda: Chase lead, Koda follow.
(Chase and Koda start heading in the direction of Jean-Claude's house. Fury reappears a few miles away.)
Fury: No sense letting Sledge know I found this, just yet.
(With Chase and Koda…)
Chase: Okay, now the scanner is picking something up. Come on.
(Chase starts heading there on his skateboard. Koda takes to the trees, hoping to keep up. After less than a minute, Chase and Koda arrive where Fury is.)
Chase: Well, look who it is. Fury: The Black and Blue Rangers. Most fitting, since that is what the two of you will be when I am done with you, and I have your energems. Chase: Not going to happen. Ready, Koda? Koda: Ready. Chase & Koda: Dino Chargers, Ready! Energize! Unleash the Power!
(The two morph.)
Fury: It will take more than two Rangers to defeat me.
(Fury fires a blast with his sword. Chase and Koda both dodge the blast. Chase just starts firing on Fury with his blaster. No more than a few moments later, behind the commotion, Jean-Claude arrives.)
JC: Whoa. Power Rangers. And there's that monster.
(Jean-Claude decides to wait until he does anything, until he can make a move. Fury keeps firing. Jean-Claude looks at Fury, and sees the energem, that Fury decided to wear around his neck. He decides to sneak around so he can get to Fury from behind.)
Fury: Why don’t you two call the others, so I can take all your Energems at once? Koda: We more than enough to stop you.
(Chase notices Jean-Claude.)
Chase: Oh no.
(Jean-Claude takes his chance to move in, attacking Fury from behind.)
JC: Give back what belongs to my family! Fury: Who dares? Koda: Watch out. Him too powerful for you. JC: I said give it back!
(Jean-Claude goes into a fighting stance. Fury just laughs.)
Fury: You are no match for me. I have been on this planet for 65 million years, and no mere human has ever stopped me. JC: Fine, then I'll get it back myself.
(Jean-Claude suddenly does a spinning double back kick. One of his kicks knocks Fury's sword out of his hand, and the other hits Fury square in the chest.)
Fury: Argh. You'll pay for that. With your life.
(Jean-Claude gets prepared to fight again, but the energem around Fury's neck starts to glow.)
Fury: What's going on?
(Suddenly, the energem breaks the chain holding it around Fury's neck, and flies across Jean-Claude, who catches it in one hand. His body and the energem bonds.)
JC: What the..? Koda: It bonding with him. We need call Kendall. JC: Bonding? Koda: It more than I can explain.
(Jean-Claude looks at Chase and Koda, then at Fury.)
Fury: I can’t stop it from bonding with you. So I'll take it after! JC: No idea what any of you are talking about. And I certainly don't remember my father telling me our family heirloom can glow, or fly into the air on its own.
(Fury reaches for his sword.)
Jean-Claude: But… I… do feel some kind of power from the jewel. I don't know how, though.
(Just as Jean-Claude says that, a Dino Charge Morpher appears in his hand. The energem floats and enter the Morpher, auto-morphing Jean-Claude into a Brown Ranger.)
JC: Whoa. I'm a… Power Ranger? Koda: Now we definitely need call Kendall. Fury: I won’t be taking that gem today. But, I will take it, and the others.
(As Fury says that, he leaves. Jean-Claude looks over to Chase and Koda. Because of Fury being gone, Jean-Claude demorphs, and the energem is removed from the Morpher, back in his hands.)
Chase: Now we'll do more than call her. (to JC) You might want to come with us. JC: Yeah, maybe. Chase: Koda, let the others know we're heading back. Koda: OK. (into communicator) Tyler, Riley. We find Energem, and new Ranger. We head back now. Riley: (v/o) Wait, what? New Ranger? Tyler: (v/o) We'll meet you there.
(Back at the museum, Ace is in the gift shop, trying to find something for Kendall.)
Clerk: Can I help you? Ace: I'm looking for something to let someone know I’m attracted to her. Clerk: Ah, young love. Ace: I’m not sure its love, or just a crush. And she doesn’t even know who I am. Clerk: Ah, I see. Ace: I also have a limited budget. So, nothing too pricy. Clerk: I hear you. We do have some clearance items over in the corner. And if you need more money, we're hiring. Ace: Hmm, a job would be nice. My best friend works over in the cafe.
(Ace goes to look through the clearance section. He finds a box of rock samples.)
Ace (thinking): Hmm, these could be good for my collection. I just don’t see anything I could get for Kendall.
(Ace grabs the rocks and heads back to the counter. Meanwhile in the museum, Chase, Koda and Jean-Claude arrive. They lead him to the Dino Bite Cafe.)
Shelby: This is the guy? Chase: Yeah. Where's Ms. Morgan? Shelby: She went downstairs already. JC: Downstairs? Chase: You'll see soon enough. Shelby: I'll be down as soon as the crowd thins out. Koda: Bring dino burger. I hungry.
(Jean-Claude first decides to extend his hand towards Shelby.)
JC: The name is Jean-Claude Noblet. Friends call me JC. Shelby: I’m Shelby. Nice to meet you.
(Shelby shakes JC's hand, as Ace returns from the gift shop.)
JC: I guess I will see you downstairs, then. Chase: Let's go.
(Chase and Koda lead JC into the back room, as there's an entrance to their base there. Shelby walks over to Ace.)
Shelby: Find something for Miss Morgan? Ace: No. Just some rocks for my collection. I’m going to stop by the flea market on my way home, see if they've got anything there I could afford. Shelby: OK. See you later, Ace. Ace: Later, Shelb.
(Ace leaves. Downstairs, Kendall is the only one in sight as the others arrive. Jean-Claude looks around when they arrive.)
JC: Whoa. This is a cool place. Kendall: So, this is who the Brown Energem bonded with? Koda: Him good fighter, Kendall. Chase: He also took on Fury by himself. Don't think I've seen someone without an energem try fighting Fury or one of his monsters. Voice: Shelby and I did.
(Tyler and Riley enter.)
Kendall (to JC): I'll need your Energem, so I can make some Dino Chargers. JC: Wait, wait. What's this all about an Energem? And why did the jewel even give me power like it did? I thought it was just a family heirloom that's been with my family for almost a century. JC: Huh? Chase: You might want to sit down. JC: Why?
(Jean-Claude sits down in a chair nearby. Keeper walks in from Koda's cave.)
Keeper: I brought the Energems to Earth 65 million years ago, and entrusted them to dinosaurs, to protect them from an intergalactic bounty hunter, named Sledge.
(Jean-Claude is speechless as he looks at Keeper.)
Riley: Exactly how I felt the first time I saw him. Tyler: If you think this is something, wait until you hear about Koda. JC: What is he supposed to be some caveman?
(Jean-Claude looks at Koda.)
Koda: How did JC know? JC: Wait… you are? Oookay. Kendall: Chase and I found him encased in ice. His Energem kept him alive. JC: That is so Encino Man. Only not. Koda: Who is Encino Man?
Shelby: It's a movie, Koda. My friend Ace has seen it a few times. He made me watch it once. He's a total pop culture junkie. Riley: So what exactly should we call you? JC: My name is Jean-Claude Noblet. My friends call me JC. Tyler: Jean-Claude? Like Van Damme? JC: I got that a lot when I was younger. Jean-Claude is actually a common name where my family is from. But because of having people asking that, I decided to learn martial arts. Kendall: Obviously, you're of French ancestry. Although, Noblet also has Dutch roots. JC: My great-great grandfather was Dutch. My great grandfather was born in France, and he moved to America. When he arrived, and was down on his luck, he found what you call the energem. He saw it as a good luck charm, and it became a family heirloom, passed down from father to son. Kendall: And it never bonded with anyone until you. JC: Not that I know of. This is the first time I remember seeing it do anything. I only ever saw it hanging around my father's neck. Keeper: If the Energem had bonded with anyone else, they would have stopped aging. JC: So that means… I won't age anymore, then. Keeper: Precisely. JC: Well, I'm pretty sure no one else in my family was bonded to it, since I don't remember hearing any stories of them having longer lives. Kendall: It takes an act of great heroism to get an Energem to bond with you.
(One of the computers beeps.)
Kendall: We've got a fix on another Energem. Chase: Well, that's fast.
(Kendall brings the location up on the monitor.)
Shelby: I know where that is. It's a flea market near my house. Riley: That's a weird coincidence. Tyler: We should probably go check it out. (to JC) You should stay here, and let Ms. Morgan make your Dino Chargers. We might need your help later. JC: Sure. Shelby: Ace said he was going there. If Fury or one of Sledge's other goons shows up there, he could be in danger. We'd better hurry. Tyler: Let's go. We'll take my jeep. Shelby: Good idea.
(The Rangers leave. At the Flea Market, Ace is looking at the various vendors' wares.)
Ace (thinking): Still nothing for Kendall. Maybe there's some new rocks over there.
(Ace moves towards a table where various boxes of rocks are set up. But first, he stops at a different vendor.)
Ace (thinking): Oh wow. A genuine Atari 2600. Dad had one of these when he was my age. This would be a great surprise for him. If I can afford it after I find something for Kendall.
(Ace heads over to the rocks. He looks though several of the boxes.)
Vendor: You know your rocks? Ace: I've got quite a collection. I always look for something unique.
(Ace finds a small crystal.)
Ace: This is odd. Almost looks like a diamond. Probably some sort of quartz.
(People start running, as Fury and some Vivix arrive.)
Fury: The Energem has to be here somewhere.
(Ace pays for the crystal, and puts it in his pocket. He gets ready to leave, when he sees a young girl on a nearby playground. Vivix are approaching her.)
(Ace, ignoring the Vivix, rushes towards the playground. Moments later, the Rangers arrive. They've already morphed on the way, when they heard the area was being attacked.)
Fury: Rangers. Just who I wanted to see. Chase: Too bad we didn’t want to see you.
(Nearby, Ace grabs the girl.)
Ace: Hold on. I'll get you to your Mom.
(Ace carries Judy away from the playground. He is surrounded by Vivix.)
Ace: What are these guys? Walking Gateway computer boxes?
(Ace kicks one of the Vivix, trying to get Judy to her mother.)
Tyler: Pink Ranger, you help that guy with the girl. We'll handle Fury and the Vivix. Shelby: Right. (thinking) Ace? What have you gotten yourself into?
(Shelby rushes towards the playground. Ace knocks down another Vivix, and makes a little more progress. He doesn’t notice a glow coming from his pocket. Ace doesn't notice the glow, but Fury looks towards where Shelby is heading, and sees the glow from where he is.)
Fury: The Energem! It's there! Vivix!
(The Vivix converge around Ace. Judy starts crying.)
Ace: We'll get you to your mother. (Thinking) I feel like I’m in a video game. With no weapons, no extra ammo, and no cheat codes.
(More Vivix arrive, further surrounding Ace and Judy.)
Shelby (thinking): There's too many of them. I can’t get to Ace and the little girl.
Voice: Dino Morpher Blast!
(A brown beam of energy streaks by, destroying 6 Vivix.)
Fury: What? Voice: Leave this planet alone.
(A brown Dino Charge Ranger flips into the scene, landing near Shelby. He stands up, putting his blaster on his shoulder.)
Shelby: Did Miss Morgan see we needed help? Brown Ranger: Yeah. Good thing she tutored me on the workings of this equipment quickly. Shelby: That's my friend over there, trying to save that little girl. He doesn’t stand a chance against all these Vivix. Brown Ranger: Good thing I showed up, then. You handle one side, I'll handle the other. Shelby: Right.
(Shelby takes out her blaster, and charges at the Vivix on the right. The Brown Ranger charges at the Vivix on the left. The Vivix, distracted by Shelby and the Brown Ranger, forget about Ace, temporarily. He manages to get Judy to her mother.)
Mother: Thank you. Ace: I just hate to see a mother separated from her child. Fury: Go after him, you fools!
(Some of the Vivix turn their attention back to Ace. The Brown Ranger attacks his batch of Vivix, making quick work of them. He then starts to go after the Vivix going after Ace.)
Brown Ranger: How about you guys pick on someone who can actually stand a chance?
(Ace notices a glow coming from his pocket. He takes out the rock he just bought.)
Ace: What's with this rock?
The Brown Ranger takes out most of the Vivix that are after Ace, then looks in Ace's direction.)
Brown Ranger: (to others) Hey, guys? Shelby: He's got the Energem. Tyler: Keep Fury away from him until it's bonded with him.
(The Brown Ranger finishes off the Vivix. He heads over to where Ace is, then turns so he can see Fury.)
Brown Ranger: (to Ace) Stay behind me. Ace: Wow, a Power Ranger. Shelby won’t believe this. Brown Ranger: I'm sure she'll have beat you to it. Ace: Why? Do you guys go to the Dinosaur Museum a lot? She works there, in the cafe. Brown Ranger: Not what I meant. You'll see soon enough. Ace: Huh?
(Suddenly, Ace sees a vision, of a flying dinosaur. The bonding process has completed.)
Ace: That was weird.
(The Brown Ranger looks towards Ace. The Energem has stopped glowing.)
Brown Ranger: (thinking) I have a feeling he's already bonded to it. Kind of get the same vibe of when it happened to me. (out loud, to Ace) I know this is going to sound strange, but did you just have a sort of vision just now? Ace: Yeah. Some sort of dinosaur. Not one I've ever seen. A flying one, like a pterodactyl or a pteranadon. Brown Ranger: Good. (to the others) We can rest a little easier now. It's bonded to him. Now we just need to get rid of Fury. Tyler (to Ace): That rock you've got, we've all got them too. Ace: You mean, I'm a Power Ranger? Riley: Pretty much.
(A Dino Morpher appears in Ace's hand.)
Ace: What's this? Some sort of Nerf gun? Tyler: Put your rock in the barrel. Ace: If you say so.
(Ace places his diamond-like rock in the Morpher.)
Tyler: Now, spin the chamber.
(Ace spins the chamber.)
Tyler: Fire it skyward.
(Ace fires, and soon, he is morphed, into a Ranger with a white colored costume.)
Ace: Oh wow. I guess I’m the White Ranger. Riley: More like Diamond. Ace: Well, Diamonds are Forever. Brown Ranger: Nice Bond pun, there. Ace: Thanks. Fury: Another Ranger? Ace: Who's that? The Cowardly Lion? Fury: I'll show you who's a coward.
(Fury charges at the Rangers.)
Brown Ranger: Okay, you're not a coward. More like an idiot. Fury: When I deliver all of your Energems, Sledge will reward me. Maybe he'll let me shoot Poisandra out an airlock. Brown Ranger: Okay, you're an idiot and a broken record. Is that all you say? Seriously, get new material.
(Fury answers by firing a blast at the Brown Ranger. The Brown Ranger dodges, but barely.)
Brown Ranger: Ooo, almost got me there. Maybe if you attacked a little faster, you might've hit me. Something like this, maybe.
(The Brown Ranger starts firing on Fury with his blaster, but he's not actually hitting him. He hits around his feet, making smoke.)
Fury: You'll pay for that.
(Ace finds what appears to be a throwing knife in his hand.)
Ace: Where did this come from? Riley: That's your weapon. Ace: Hmm, I’ve seen enough movies to know what to do with this.
(Ace throws the knife at Fury. It knocks his sword out of his hand. With the smoke rising from Brown Ranger's blasts, Fury is almost blind from it. As Fury leans down to pick up his sword from Ace's attack, the Brown Ranger comes up behind him in the smoke, then kicks him in the back of the head as he's leaning down.)
Brown Ranger: Peek-a-boo!
(Fury is knocked down.)
Fury: There's too many of you here now, but someday soon, I'll get to you in smaller numbers. Then, I will by the victor. Brown Ranger: (to Ace) I guess you're right. He is cowardly. Ace: Say hi to Dorothy, Toto, Scarecrow and the Tin Man when you get back to the Emerald City.
(Fury grabs his sword and leaves.)
Brown Ranger: I guess that's that. Tyler: Yeah. Ace: So, now that I’m one of your guys, is there some sort of membership card or secret handshake? Brown Ranger: Well, there is a secret base. We'll show you. Ace: Like the Batcave? Sweet. Brown Ranger: Pretty close to it, technically. Ace: Does it come with a butler? Chase: I wish. Brown Ranger: Well, it comes with a caveman, technically.
(The Brown Ranger glances as Koda.)
Ace: Now I’m intrigued. Brown Ranger: Let's go so you can see it. And we can all power down, so no one in public sees us. Ace: Lead on. Tyler: OK, everyone, let's head home. Koda: Good. I getting hungry.
(The Rangers all head to the Dino Cave from the secret entrance not found in the Dino Museum.)
Ace: Wow, this is a Batcave. No Batmobile, though. But, it's nice. Brown Ranger: And here's the resident caveman.
(The Brown Ranger gestures towards Koda. Koda powers down.)
Ace: I've seen you before. When I visit Shelby at the museum.
(The Brown Ranger also powers down.)
Ace: Ok, I don’t remember seeing you before. Shelby: That's because he just joined us, earlier today.
(Shelby powers down.)
Ace: Shelb? No way. Shelby: It's real, Ace. JC: Told you that she'd beat you to it. Ace: Yeah, so you did.
(Tyler, Chase and Riley also power down. Kendall arrives.)
Kendall: I presume this is the new Ranger. Shelby: Yes. He is. Ace: Arnold Charles Edwards. My friends call me Ace. My girlfriends call me Arnie. When they get another date, I tell them, "I'll be back." When it's over, I say "Hasta la vista, baby." JC: A strange coincidence, then. I'm Jean-Claude Noblet. Friends call me JC. Ace: Jean-Claude? Like Van Damme? JC: Most people think that, but Jean-Claude is a pretty normal name for Belgium and French families. Although I'm only like a third of those. My mom was American. Ace: I've got some French ancestry too. One of my ancestors was named Arno. So, I'm kind of named for him. Tyler: Maybe we should prepare Ace for the big reveal. JC: Yeah, see. Our base? It's not just underground. It's under a specific property. Ace: I’m just going to guess the Dinosaur Museum. Shelby: What gave it away? Ace: The fact that you and your co-workers from the cafe are Rangers, and that your boss just walked in here. JC: Okay, then you might want to prepare for the second big reveal. They kind of told me to sit down for it. Ace: OK.
(Ace sits down. His gaze is fixed on Kendall.)
JC: (notices) The reveal isn't going to be from her.
Ace: What the? Kendall: This is Keeper. He brought the Energems to Earth, sixty five million years ago. Ace: Energems? Shelby: Your rock.
(Ace holds up his Energem.)
Keeper: The diamond energem. It bonded with a tupandactylus. Ace: That must be what I saw. JC: Yeah, I think we all kind of have a vision of a dinosaur when we're bonded to our Energem. I had a feeling that's what happened with you, it's why I asked you before. Kendall: I'll need your Energem so I can make you some Dino Chargers. Ace: Take whatever you like.
(Ace hands Kendall his energem.)
JC: (thinking) This guy has it bad for her. I can tell. (out loud) There's one more thing we need to do. Considering you're now part of the team, you need to be employed at the museum with us, so that when there's an emergency, we're not that far from each other. Ace: Well, by a happy coincidence, I got a job application for the gift shop earlier. JC: Well, that would be up to Ms. Morgan. Kendall: As long as he's anywhere within the museum, its fine. He could be a janitor and it would still work. Ace: So, I can use you as a reference? Kendall: I'll take care of that. I'll tell the manager I hired you. Ace: Great. JC: Which is pretty easy for her, since she owns the museum. Ace: I know. Shelby: He comes to visit me pretty much everyday. JC: I highly doubt it's just because you work here, Shelby, that he visits. Shelby: I know. (Whispered) He was in the gift shop, trying to find a gift for her. JC: (whispering) Seems silly to do that when she owns the place. Shelby (Whispered): I know. JC: Anyway, how about we get to work, and let Ms. Morgan and Keeper help Ace get settled on his Dino Chargers and such? Shelby: Good idea. It might get Koda's mind off food, if he's busy serving it.
(100,000 years ago. Koda is carving on a cave wall, He suddenly finds the Blue Energem. A growl attracts his attention. Outside of the cave, Koda's brother, Taku is holding a torch, as a saber-toothed tiger approaches.)
Taku: Koda! Koda! Koda! Koda! Koda!
(Koda emerges from the cave.)
(Koda bravely tackles the saber-toothed tiger away, but in the process, he follows it off the cliff.)
(As he falls, the Blue Energem bonds with Koda. He vanishes from Taku's sight.)
Taku: Koda! Koda!
(In the present, the sound of an engine, sounding very similar to the saber-toothed tiger, awakens Koda. Hearing the roar again, Koda grabs a large stick, as he exits the cave, where Kendall and the other Rangers are standing around a motorcycle.)
Kendall: Sorry, we didn't know you were sleeping. Shelby: Kendall-- Miss Morgan was just showing us our new Dino Cycles. Ace: Looks like it would be a real babe magnet. If I could drive it in civilian clothes. JC: Pretty sure that'll squander our secret identity. Chase: Come on over, take a squizz. Others: A squizz? Chase: A squizz. You know... a look? Sometimes I wonder if I'm speaking English. Riley: Me too. Ace: We need to find a website with New Zealand slang. Chase: Take a look, Koda. It's got everything from laser blasters to energy skaters, and most importantly... I look really good on it. Ace (muttered): Vain much?
(Chase revs the engine. Koda starts to attack the bike.)
Tyler: Relax! Shelby: Easy! Riley: Relax. Koda: Uh... sorry. My instincts say... danger. Shelby: No apologies. I totally get it. Where you're from, anything that makes a strange sound is a threat.
(Shelby's cell phone rings. Koda smashes it with his stick.)
Koda: I'm sorry, Shelby, I-- Chase: No apologies mate. She totally gets it. Ace: Glad mine is in my pocket. With the ringer turned off. Kendall: He's grown accustomed to morphing into a Ranger, but... Koda: Some modern things still give me...nervous? Chase: Look, you just need a few pointers. I've ridden everything from roller coasters to kangaroos. If anybody can teach you how to ride, it's me. Riley: Hey, whoa, whoa, whoa, wait a second. There aren't any kangaroos in New Zealand. Those are in Australia. Chase: Ah, details.
(Ace pulls out his phone and looks something up.)
Ace: It's only a three and a half hour flight from New Zealand to Australia. Faster than flying from here to the East Coast. That's a five hour flight. Chase (to Koda): Let's give it a go.
(Up in orbit...)
Fury: Master Sledge. Sledge: What can this dirt bag do, Fury?
(A monster named Slammer is with Fury.)
Slammer: I'll get you those Energems in no time. Fury: He'll capture the Rangers in his cages. He never misses. Poisandra: Never misses? Puh-leez! Spoken by the one who couldn’t find a single Energem in 65 million years. Fury: Pink freak! Sledge: Slammer! Get down to Earth and don't disappoint me! Slammer: I won't, Master Sledge!
(Slammer backs into a pod, Sledge fires at the launch button, sending Slammer down to the surface.)
Poisandra: Oh, Sledge, darling, let's forget those pesky Energems. I'll go mad if I have to spend another day in this rust bucket with only vermin for companionship. Sledge: That's exactly why I got you a present. Wrench!
Wrench: Right here, Master Sledge. Poisandra: A present? For me?
(A raggedy looking creature follows Wrench in.)
Wrench: I built him from old monster parts. I called him Curio. Poisandra: You got me a friend! A best friend. Aren't you just adorable? Wanna go make some trouble? Curio: Sure thing!
(Poisandra and Curio leave.)
Sledge: I hope that pinhead gets her off my back. Fury! Slammer's cages better work. I want those Energems. Fury: They'll work, Master Sledge.
(Back on Earth, Chase is starting Koda's lessons simply, with a bicycle. Chase is on his skateboard, staying close.)
Chase: Very good. Smooth. Keeps it moving. Yeah, looking good, my man. I mean, caveman.
(Chase becomes distracted by kids laughing.)
Chase: Look out!
(Koda drives the bike into a curve, and falls off of it. A short time later, on a nearby bench.)
Chase: No worries mate. It takes time to figure it out. Koda: It's not just, uh... bike. Many things I not used to. Uh, like TV.
(Koda remembers the first time he watched a scary movie on a TV. He smashed it with his stick.)
Koda: And... and comb.
(Koda's first attempt at combing his hair did not end well.)
Koda: And glass.
(Like a bird, Koda did not see the clear glass doors of the cafe, walking into them with a tray of drinks.)
Chase: Yeah. I guess this world must seem pretty strange to you. But hey! Right here, right now, you got nothing to worry about.
(Two girls walk by.)
Chase: Except for looking good for the ladies. Koda: Yes, look good for...
(The park's automated sprinklers turn on, startling Koda.)
Chase: Relax. They're just sprinklers.
(Koda looks at his Energem.)
Koda: Why would Blue Energem choose a caveman?
(Koda spots one of Slammer's cages.)
(Koda moves out of the way, but Chase is caged.)
Chase: What is that? Koda, behind you!
(The cage, with Chase, vanishes as Slammer approaches.)
Slammer: One Ranger locked up, time to give him a cellmate!
(Slammer throws another cage at Koda.)
Slammer: You’re getting a life sentence, without parole.
(Koda kicks the cage away. He grabs a shovel and attacks Slammer.)
Koda: Where is... my friend? Slammer: You'll be joining him soon! Stop trying to break out before you're even in!
(Koda keeps attacking, but Slammer knocks him backwards.)
Slammer: The smart thing to do is to come quietly, but you're not very smart, are you?
(Slammer gets ready to throw another cage. A boy is riding his bike very close to Koda.)
Koda: Watch out!
(Koda tries to save the boy, but both of then, and the bike, are caged.)
Slammer: Two's double the fun!
(The cage vanishes, reappearing near Chase's cage.)
Chase: Koda! I tried to morph, but I can't.
(Koda tries to use his caveman strength to bend the bars, but fails.)
Chase: Even you can't bend these bars. Hey, who's that?
(Koda checks on the boy.)
Koda: You okay? Boy: My... my leg, I think it's broken.
(Chase notices something.)
Chase: Koda, look. The cage landed on the bike. Maybe you can get out.
(Indeed, the bike has made a half-circle opening at the bottom of the cage on one side. Koda easily skips out of it, then helps the boy out.)
Koda: Careful, don't hit leg. Stay still. Chase: Nice work for getting out. This cave is too dark for--
(Koda quickly starts a fire. He lights a torch.)
Chase: Wow. Oh, you've got to teach me how to do that. Koda: What is your name? Boy: Peter. Koda: Peter, can you hold torch? Peter: Yeah.
(Koda hands Peter the torch, as he begins to make a splint. Chase takes out his communicator.)
Koda: He needs doctor. Chase: Kendall, can you hear me? Is anybody out there?
(Chase can’t get a signal.)
Chase: Oh, there's... some kind of field jamming our equipment.
(Koda takes the torch back.)
Peter: Which way? Koda: The wind show us.
(Koda watches the flame, to see which way the wind is coming from.)
Koda: We go this way.
(Koda picks Peter up.)
Koda: I get Peter out, then I come back. Chase: Good luck.
(Back at the museum, Kendall walks into the cafe. Ace is there on his break from the gift shop.)
Kendall: Chase and Koda are late. Shelby: Chase is always late. Riley: And Koda doesn't even know what time is. Ace: In his era, they didn’t even have sundials. Kendall: True. But they aren't answering their Dino Coms, either. Tyler, Riley, take the Dino Cycles. Their scanners will allow you to cover more ground. Tyler: Okay. Let's go. Quatra: Right behind you.
(Tyler and Riley leave. Back in the cave, Koda collects dripping water in a rag, as some bats fly through.)
Koda: Peter, I have little brother like you. I protect him. I protect you. I promise.
(Koda wipes Peter's forehead, then holds out his fist. Peter gives him a fist bump. Peter then climbs into Koda's back. Elsewhere in the cave, Slammer returns.)
Slammer: What?! A jailbreak on my watch?! That Ranger's more clever than I thought! I'll crush him! Chase: Hey, um... I'm pretty clever, too. Let me out and I'll--I'll show you. Slammer: You wanna show someone? Show Sledge! He'll eat you for breakfast. Now, I have a Ranger to catch!
Chase: Watch your back, Koda.
(Koda is climbing a wall, with Peter still holding on.)
Slammer (v/o): You won't escape me!
(Koda keeps climbing. Elsewhere in Amber Beach...)
Tyler: Riley, we'll cover more ground if we split up. Riley: You got it.
(Back in the cave, Koda and Peter come to a fork.)
Koda: Two paths? Peter: Which way? Koda: I not know.
(Peter offers Koda his phone.)
(Slammer's laugh can be heard.)
Peter: Take it. The phone signal is too weak, but the GPS map may work.
(Koda takes the phone and looks at the map.)
Peter: Now, that arrow is us, okay? Koda: Huh.
(Using the map, Koda takes the path on the left. Somewhere outside the cave...)
Tyler: I'm picking up a magnetic field. Do you see it?
(Back at the lab...)
Kendall: I see it, too. Strange readings. Shelby: That field must be keeping them from communicating with us. Ace: So they've been jammed. I hope it isn’t raspberry, Kendall: Or maybe even from morphing. They've got to get outside. Riley, I'm sending coordinates. Meet us at the mountain.
Riley: Right, I'm on my way.
(Riley takes off for the mountain. Kendall and the other Rangers leave the lab. Back in the cave, Koda and Peter are near the exit.)
Koda: Peter, look.
(Unfortunately, so is Slammer.)
Slammer: Hold still! I won't hurt you. I'll destroy you!
(Outside the others meet up.)
Shelby: Any sign of them? Tyler: There's a cave over...
(Tyler sees someone emerging from the cave.)
(Indeed, it is Koda, carrying Peter.)
Koda: He need doctor!
(Koda hands Peter to Kendall.)
Kendall: I'll get him to a hospital. Peter: Ko... da!
(Kendall leaves with Peter, in Tyler's jeep.
Riley: Koda, where's Chase? Koda: Still trapped, in mountain. Shelby: Trapped? By who? Koda: Him.
(Koda has spotted Slammer.)
Slammer: Hey, Rangers! Thanks for coming! How about you stay a while? Or in this case, forever! Cage time!
(Slammer throws another cage.
(Koda catches the cage.)
Slammer: Hey, let go of that!
(Koda pulls, and Slammer is yanked down to the Rangers' level.)
Koda: It... Morphing time! Dino Charger... Rangers: Ready! Energize, ha! Unleash the power! Tyler: Power Rangers, charged! Tyrannosaurus Rex, Power Ranger red! Koda: Stegosaurus! Power Ranger blue! Riley: Velociraptor! Power Ranger green! Shelby: Triceratops! Power Ranger pink! JC: Brontosaurus! Power Ranger brown! Ace: Tupandactylus! Power Ranger Diamond! Quatra: Power Ranger Rainbow! Rangers: Dinosaur might, ready to fight! Tyler: Power Rangers... Rangers: Dino Charge! Slammer: Vivix, destroy those Technicolor twits! Tyler: Hang on! It's about to get wild! Koda: We do this!
(The Rangers charge into battle.)
Koda: You not mess with caveman strength!
(Koda flips a Vivix.)
Shelby: One for you, one for you! And finally, here's yours! Ace: Nice going, Shelb. This is more fun than any video game. Well, maybe not Italian Plumber Siblings. Slammer: Escape is not possible! Tyler: Oh, yeah? I thought breath that bad wasn't possible. Ace: Ooh, burn. Riley: Yeah, and your fighting skills stink, too. Ace: Double burn. Slammer: Whoa! I'll punish you for saying that!
(Slammer fires blasts, but Riley charges in, saber ready.)
Riley: Raptor slash!
(Slammer is knocked down.)
Tyler: Let's try out the battle mode on these Dino Cycles. Riley: Yeah! Yeah! I wanna see what they can really do.
(Tyler and Riley rev their engines and take off towards Slammer.)
Slammer: I'll lock you both up!
(Tyler and Riley ride into battle.)
Riley: Dino Saber! Morpher: Raptor Charger, engage! Riley: Power slash!
(Riley delivers a powerful drive-by attack.)
Tyler: My turn! Morpher: T-Rex charger, engage! Tyler: Energize! Dino Morpher Blast, final strike!
(Tyler fires at Slammer.)
Slammer: You'll do hard time for this!
Tyler: Now, that was awesome, ha ha!
(Up in orbit...)
Sledge: Those worthless Rangers! Vivix, get over here! Fire the magna beam, now!
(A Vivix presses the button for the Magna Beam. Back on the surface...)
Koda: We need go back in cave. Save Chase. Tyler: Come on!
(The sound of the Magna Beam hitting Slammer is heard.)
(The Megazord leaps over the forest, grabbing Slammer from behind.)
Slammer: Let go! Tyler: Riley, it's time to try out your Zord. Riley: Oh-ho, I've been waiting for this. Ace: some of us are still waiting. Riley: Dino Charger, ready! Summon Raptor Zord! Morpher: Raptor Charger, engage!
(Riley’s Zord emerges from the forest, slicing through tress with ease.)
Slammer: Jailbreak! Tyler: Guess again!
(The Raptor Zord attacks Slammer, knocking him down.)
(Riley appears in the cockpit. Despite Triceratops no longer being attached, Shelby is still there.)
Tyler: Hey, Riley. Riley: Whoa, it's so cool in here. Koda: Your Zord very strong. Tyler: Let's see what we can do together. Tyler, Shelby Koda, Riley: Bladed Raptor Slash! Shelby: Tricera, go save Chase!
(While the Megazord battles Slammer, the Triceratops drills into the mountain.)
Chase: I know that noise.
(The Triceratops drill stops just short of the cage.)
Chase: Thanks, Tricera.
Slammer: I sentence you to destruction!
(The Megazord hits Slammer with the Raptor Blade.)
Tyler: Look, Tricera Zord's back!
(Tricera emerges from the mountain)
Shelby: You found Chase! Good job! Koda: Chase free! Tyler: Now, let's finish this. Riley: Right! Tyler, Shelby Koda, Riley: Raptor Zord, Final Flame, strike!
(A blast of flame covers the Raptor Blade.)
Slammer: Oh, no! I'm going away for good!
(The attack finishes off Slammer.)
Tyler: Monster extinct!
(Sometime later, Peter is telling his friends about what happened. The Rangers arrive in Tyler’s jeep.))
Peter: Suddenly, a cage fell right on us. It was pitch black in the cave but he made fire with his bare hands so he could see the way. Then he carried me under boulders and through cracks. It was totally dangerous, but for him, no problem. He was like... like a caveman. Boy 1: Whoa. Caveman, cool! Well, gotta go. Boy 2: Yeah, see you later.
(Peter turns around and sees his rescuer.)
Peter: Koda? Koda!
(Peter hugs Koda.)
Koda: How is leg? Peter: It's good. Yeah. Koda: I brought you a bicy...bi... bi... Peter: Bicycle? Koda: Uh, yes, yes. Peter: Wow! Thanks, Koda!
(Peter gets on the bike.)
Peter: Hey, Koda, can I ask you something? Koda: Yes. Peter: I saw you trying to ride a bike. You don't know how, do you? Koda: It... a bit scary for me. Peter: Yeah, I was scared at first, too. But don't worry, after you learn, it's easy peasy. Hey, I know! I could teach you. Koda: Oh, um... Peter: Come on. I protect you, I promise.
(Peter holds up his fist. Koda thinks back to Taku, before returning the fist bump.)
Peter: Cool, so the most important thing is to keep on pedaling. You have to move forward or else you'll fall over.
(Koda starts pedaling.)
Peter: That's it. Shelby: You're doing great, Koda! Tyler: Careful! Koda: I think I got it!
(It's an ordinary day at the museum. Chase is working the grill in the cafe, but, he's also looking at his phone.)
Shelby: Ugh! Chase, can't you finish anything?
(Chase ignores Shelby. Out front, Tyler is working the register.)
Tyler: Nine and ten. Have a good one. Customer: Thank you.
(Shelby takes food to one table, then goes over to another one to take an order. She waves to Ace, who has just walked in. He sits down at the counter.)
Tyler: How's the gift shop? Ace: Quiet, compared to this.
(At a booth...)
Shelby: I'm Shelby, can I take your…
(The customer is an attractive young woman, which means, someone else has already joined her.)
Shelby: Chase? Aren't you manning the grill? Chase: The grill? The grill!
(Smoke can be seen in the kitchen.)
Chase: Oh, so sorry! Sorry! Tyler: I'll get the fire extinguisher!
(A short time later, after all the guests have gone, Kendall and the Rangers are in the cafe.)
Chase: Come on. One little fire. Kendall: That could have burned down the entire museum.
(Kendall takes off her glasses.)
Ace (thinking): I’ve never seen her without her glasses on. She's even more beautiful. Shelby: And exposed our base. Chase: Okay. I get it. I promise to pay more attention to... Moana! Ace: Isn’t that a Disney movie?
(An older woman has entered the cafe.)
Shelby: Who's that?
(Chase walks over to the woman. They hug.)
Chase: How are you? It's been a long time. Moana: Chase, I need your help. Chase: What is it? Moana: I've had a vision and someone is going to steal from me something of great value. Chase: Moana's a matakite, a Maori fortune teller from New Zealand. Moana: I need you to guard my shop. Shelby: Really? Chase is gonna guard it? Kendall: I hope you have a fire extinguisher.
(Ace chuckles. as do Riley and Tyler.)
Koda: What is that? Chase: What about the police? Moana: Oh, they think I'm crazy. You have special strengths, Chase.
(Chase takes out his Energem.)
Moana: Only you can help me. Chase: Well... Okay.
(Moana drags Chase out of the cafe.)
Chase: I can handle this.
(Later, at Moana's shop...)
Chase: Hey, Moana. This Maori mask is cool. Moana: Touch nothing. Chase. You must stay alert at all times. Chase: Don't worry, Moana, I will protect your shop. Go on. Moana: I'll be back tomorrow.
Chase: Well, better settle in.
(Chase sits down, and keeps himself occupied throughout the night. But eventually, he falls asleep. And after he does, an alien, named Spellbinder, enters.)
Spellbinder: Once I do this, Sledge will finally free me.
(Spellbinder finds a strange looking amulet.)
Spellbinder: Ah, yes! Soon the rangers will be under my control.
(Spellbinder laughs, waking Chase.)
Chase: Hey, put that back! Spellbinder: Take this, human!
(Spellbinder fires magic at Chase, before fleeing.)
Spellbinder: Sledge will be so pleased!
(Chase starts to give... chase, but fights off the effects of the spell.)
Chase: What's wrong with me?
(He gets on his skateboard.)
Chase: That feels better. (into communicator) Guys, I'm gonna need some backup.
(Chase takes off.)
Chase: Come on! Faster! Gotta catch up!
(Chase quickly morphs, and then jumps his board, getting some major air time.)
Chase: Woo! Haha! All right, let's do this!
(Chase follows Spellbinder to a warehouse.)
Spellbinder: I'll lose that punk in here. Chase: There he is. I've got to find out what he's up to.
(Chase steps off his board, and starts to feel strange again.)
Chase: There's that weird feeling again.
(Chase enters the warehouse...)
Chase: Stop right there.
(Chase fires, hitting nothing.)
Spellbinder: So you're the Black Ranger! Relax. Soon, you'll be under the control of the great Spellbinder. Chase: Wrong! No one controls me, mate. Spellbinder: Oh, are you in for a surprise. Chase: Wrap your beak around this!
(Chase fires a blast, but then drops to the ground, as the others arrive.)
Tyler: Chase! Monster, you may be tough one on one, but your odds just got a whole lot worse. Morpher: T-Rex Charger, engage! Koda: Dino Steel! Rangers (minus Chase): Armor on!
(The Rangers attack Spellbinder, without much success.)
Spellbinder: Too slow. Shelby: Tricera-drill!
(Spellbinder knocks Shelby down.)
Shelby: He's so fast. Koda: His cape hard like rock. Shelby: We've got to get through it. Chase: Good thing I'm the hotshot. That's right, Spellbinder. I'm not gonna miss this time. Koda: Chase, get him! Spellbinder: Time to change your target, Black Ranger.
(Spellbinder grabs Tyler, using him as a shield.)
Tyler: Take the shot, Chase! I trust you. Chase: Gotta be careful. It's so risky. Tyler: Hurry! Spellbinder: Shoot your friend, Black Ranger. I command you. Chase: Huh? What's happening to me? Tyler: Chase, what are you doing? Chase: I-- I don't know! Spellbinder: Shoot him! Koda: Chase, no! Riley: No! Ace: Shake it off. Shelby: Chase! Chase: I can't control myself! What's happening?
(His hands shaking, Chase finally drops his blaster.)
Chase: Ahh! Koda: Chase? Riley: What's wrong? Tyler: Get off me! Chase: There's something wrong with my head! Shelby: Koda, Ace, let's get him! Let's try this! Koda: Stego Shield Punch! Spellbinder: Ah! Ace: Tupandactylus Darts Quatra: Spear.
(Ace throws his claw like darts at Spellbinder, but he keeps his grip on Tyler.)
Tyler: He won't let go! Shelby: Tricera-drill!
(Shelby's attack finally forces Spellbinder to loosen his grip.)
Shelby: Run, Tyler! Tyler: Thanks, Shelby! Spellbinder: You'll never stop me! Soon, you'll all be under my control. Riley: Not if I can help it. Let's see how you deal with my Dino Charge Morpher. Morpher: Raptor Charger. Engage! Riley: Energize! Dino Morpher Blast!
(The blast hits Spellbinder, but when the dust settles, he's gone.)
Shelby: Hey, where'd he go? Riley: What did he mean, "under his control"? Tyler: Chase, what went on back there? Chase: Just give me some space, mate. Tyler: Huh?
(Chase just walks away,)
Tyler: Chase. Something's not right. Ace: I'd say so.
(Up on Sledge's ship...)
Sledge: Spellbinder! You said once you have that pendant, the rangers would fall under your spell. Instead, they're still fighting you. Lock him in solitary! Wrench: Yes, sir. Fury: Yes, Master Sledge. Spellbinder: No! Not solitary! The Black Ranger is under my spell, but it takes time to grow! Once it does, he'll help me to bring all the rangers under your command. Sledge: Just get me one ranger and you'll be free, Spellbinder. Spellbinder: I could do that! Sledge: But if you get none, I'll pluck you for dinner! Wrench: Oh, dear...
(Later, back in the lab...)
Riley: He blocked every shot with that cape. Shelby: None of our weapons could break through it. Kendall: And that is why you have me. Ace (thinking): I wish I could have you. In my arms, making out with me. Kendall: I give you the Dino Spike Charger. It should harness the power of all five of your Energems. Tyler: Dino Spike? Perfect. Ace (thinking): Just like its creator. (aloud) Only five? Kendall: You, JC and Quatra won’t be needed for this. Just know, it takes all five Rangers to activate the Dino Spike. Quatra: I have my own weapon, thank you.
(Nearby, Keeper uses his staff to mystically examine Chase.)
Keeper: There is indeed something wrong here. Chase: It's in my head. I feel like I'm losing control of myself. Keeper: Hmm... Chase: But whatever he hit me with, it seemed to go away when I was on my skateboard. Keeper: The spell will grow stronger until it controls you completely. Perhaps if you knew the origin of the pendant... Chase: Moana. She'll know where it came from. Koda: You mean... lady of the black magic? Chase: It's no black magic. Trust me. Moana's on our side. Tyler: Stay here. We'll figure out how to break the spell. Let's go see Moana. Ace; Couldn’t we se something live-action instead?
(Shelby elbows Ace, before the Rangers, save Chase, leave.)
Riley: Be back soon.
(Chase gets up to leave as well.)
Keeper: Chase. Stop. You're more of a danger than a help to them right now. You must stay. Chase: If only I had stayed focused in the shop. Spellbinder never would've gotten that pendant. Keeper: You can't change the past. But you can learn from it.
(At Moana's shop, she looks through a book, as the Rangers watch.)
Moana: Oh! This is the pendant that was stolen. It was forged from an evil heart in the darkest corner of New Zealand. Destroy it or soon Chase will forget he's your friend and turn against you. Tyler: We have a weapon that might be strong enough, but it won't work without Chase. Moana: If he can focus, Chase can push the spell from his mind long enough to use your weapon. Riley: Heh, I doubt it. Shelby: Chase has the attention span of a flea. Moana: Long ago, your friend Chase proved to me that he can focus very deeply, even in the most dire situations. It happened one day, just as I was closing my shop.
(Flashback. Moana comes out of her shop pushing a baby carriage. Chase is nearby, putting on his helmet.)
Moana: Ooh, better lock up.
(Moana turns to lock the door, and the carriage starts to roll away.)
Moana: Oh! Tabitha! Oh, my Tabitha!
(Without saying a word, Chase gets on his skateboard and follows the runaway carriage. As the carriage rolls surprisingly well down some stairs, Chase does some spectacular jumps to catch up with it.)
Chase: Excuse me, coming through!
(The carriage stops in front of an oncoming truck.)
Chase: Oh, no!
(Chase leaps into the air, grabbing a swaddled figure out of the carriage in the knick of time, before the truck destroys the carriage. Chase returns Tabitha to Moana, where it's revealed Tabitha isn’t a baby, but a cat.)
Moana: Oh, Tabitha. Oh, you're safe. Chase: I-- I just risked my life for... ...the most beautiful little kitty. Moana: Come into my shop. There's something I must give you for your bravery. Chase: Oh, you really don't have to do that.
(Moana drags Chase inside.)
Moana: Such courage is rare. And deserves something equally precious.
(Moana gets out a box.)
Chase: What is that?
(Inside the box is the back Energem.)
Moana: Take it. It's yours. Go on.
(As Chase grabs the Energem, it bonds with him. End Flashback.)
Riley: So that's how Chase got his Energem. Koda: So easy for him. I froze in glacier for thousands of years. Ace: Mine was easier. I found it at the flea market. JC: Pretty sure mine was easier, since it was in my family as an heirloom for two generations.
(Tyler's communicator beeps.)
Moana: When he's on his skateboard, Chase can push everything else from his mind. Shelby: That's right. He said the spell went away when he was on his board. Tyler: Kendall said Spellbinder's returned. And Chase... He's disappeared. Thanks, Moana, but we gotta go. Shelby: Come on, let's hurry.
(The Rangers leave. Back at the warehouse, Wrench and Curio are with Spellbinder.)
Wrench: You told Sledge that the Black Ranger was under your control! Spellbinder: Relax. He's going to join us soon.
(The other Rangers arrive.)
Tyler: Wrong on both accounts. Koda: Chase never join you! Ace: Look it’s the tin man. Looks like he found the Scarecrow. So, you must be the Wizard. I think this Scarecrow needs a lot of brains. Spellbinder: It's too late for your friend and now your time is up!
(Spellbinder fires magic, but the Rangers dodge the blasts.)
Spellbinder: Destroy them! Curio: You will all be under Spellbinder's control soon. Shelby: Not a chance! Ace: Now go find a cornfield to stand in. Curio: Hey! We're not done fighting yet! Shelby: Oh, I know!
(Shelby sends a cart towards Curio, knocking him down.)
Ace: Now we are. Whoa! Oh! Wrench: Face it, Rangers. You can't beat us.
(Wrench knocks Riley down, as Koda gets ready to charge.)
Wrench: Don't even try.
(Koda's caveman strength knocks Wrench into a wall.)
Spellbinder: My spells are impossible to resist. Tyler: Nothing's impossible. Spellbinder: We'll see about that! Riley: You don't scare us!
(The Rangers all attack Spellbinder, but he knocks then down.)
Ace: He's no wizard. He more a wicked witch. Tyler: We've got to try... the Dino Spike! Koda: But... need Chase! Spellbinder: Your turn!
(Spellbinder fires. Only Shelby avoids getting hit, and hides behind a crate.)
Spellbinder: That's right, Rangers. You're mine now, just like your friend.
Shelby: Chase? Spellbinder: It's time. Chase: What is your command? Spellbinder: Destroy her! Shelby: No, Chase! Fight it! Concentrate! Chase: You defy my master.
(Chase takes out his Morpher, aiming at Shelby. The others are trying to fight the spell before it grows.)
Chase: Must... obey. Spellbinder: Do it!
(Shelby spots a wheeled pallet. She shoves it towards Chase, who lands on it, like his skateboard. His focus starts to come back.)
Spellbinder: Destroy her! I command you!
(Chase does a 180, and aims his blaster at Spellbinder.)
Chase: Command this.
(Chase fires, hitting Spellbinder on the amulet.)
(The other Rangers are freed from the spell.
Chase: Good on you, Shelby. That was quick thinking. Shelby: Good to have you back. Chase: Thanks. Koda: Where he go?
(The three villains regroup.)
Wrench: They've broken the spell! What should we do? Spellbinder: I may not be able to control you, but I'll still destroy you! Chase: Sorry, but your time is up. It's Morphin' Time! Dino Charger! Rangers: Ready! Energize! Ha! Unleash the power! Chase: Let's do this! Rangers: Dino Steel, armor on! Dinosaur might, ready to fight! Tyler: Power Rangers Rangers: Dino Charge! Curio: I don't like this! Tyler: It's about to get wild!
(The Rangers and villains charge at each other.)
Wrench: Time to finish you! Riley: Raptor Claw! Koda: Stego Shield Punch! Riley, go, now! Riley: On it!
(Riley uses Koda as a launch pad, to attack Wrench.)
Riley: Raptor Slash!
(Wrench is knocked down. Shelby and Ace are again fighting Curio.)
Curio: I wish I'd stayed with Poisandra. Ace: If wishes did come true, I know what Id wish for. But, they don’t. So, I just have to work to achieve my goal. You, however, are out of luck.
Spellbinder: Is that all you got? Chase: He keeps blocking with that cape. Tyler: Guys, let's use the Dino Spike. Kendall said we had to have all five of us together, right? Chase: I'm ready if you are. Tyler: That's what I like to hear. Dino Charger, ready! Weapons, combine!
(Tyler, Shelby, Chase, Riley and Koda bring their weapons together.)
Morpher: Dino Spike Charger, engage! Rangers: Red Ranger, launch!
(Tyler leaps into the air with the Dino Spike.)
Tyler: Dino Spike Final Strike! Spellbinder: No!
(The attack has weakened Spellbinder.)
Tyler: Awesome! Spellbinder: But I'm invincible! Tyler: Wrong again, beak face. We're the invincible ones.
(Up in orbit…)
Sledge: Out of my way! Magna Beam!
(Sledge fires the Magna Beam. Spellbinder is back and big.)
Chase: Not again. Koda: I'll handle this. Chase: Wait. I've got a score to settle with this crow. Dino Charger, ready. Summon Para Zord!
(Chase's Zord emerges from an old castle.)
Morpher: Para charger engaged!
(The Para Zord attacks Spellbinder.)
Spellbinder: You asked for it!
(Spellbinder sends Para Zord flying backwards, nearly hitting Rexy.)
Chase: Ah, I almost had him. Tyler: Chase, we summoned our Zords, too. How about we combine your Para Zord with the Dino Charge Megazord? Come on, we'll have awesome new powers. Shelby: Yes. Riley: Wait. I'm not sure about this. You really think we're ready? Chase: You guys broke me out of that spell, now it's time to return the favor. Tyler: Yeah! Tyler, Riley, Chase: Dino Charge Megazord, Para-raptor Formation! Morpher: Zords, combine! Dino Charge Megazord Para-raptor Formation, ready. Chase: This bird brain's in for a surprise. Tyler, Riley, Chase: Time to get charged up! Spellbinder: Arrow feathers!
(Spellbinder launches a barrage of feathers at the Megazord. It quickly evades the attack.)
Tyler: He's fast. Riley: Yeah. Chase: Get him!
(The Megazord starts firing blasts at Spellbinder.)
Spellbinder: No! Riley: Here's some more. Tyler: Sitting duck. Chase: Take this. Riley: And this.
(The Megazord keeps firing, before going for a more up-close attack.)
Spellbinder: What's this? Tyler, Riley, Chase: Bladed Raptor Slash! Spellbinder: No! Chase: Now you're under our command. Tyler, Riley, Chase: Let's barbecue this chicken. Para Zord Fireball Finish!
(A massive fireball is launched at Spellbinder.)
Spellbinder: Wait! Tyler: Monster extinct!
(Up in orbit...)
Sledge: Ugh, I could have gotten 20,000 space bullion for Spellbinder. What a waste!
(Sledge sees something in a junk pile Wrench is going through.)
Sledge: Wait... Stop.
(It's Spellbinder's amulet.)
Sledge: Maybe it's not a total loss. Hmm... Wrench: Could he have survived? Sledge: Doubt that. But I think there's still some magic left in it. Might come in handy someday. Save it. Wrench: Yes, Master Sledge.
(Later, back at the museum...)
Moana: I'm sorry about all the trouble I caused you. Telling the future can be a messy business. Chase: No worries. At least I proved to everybody that I can focus when I need to, eh?
(Chase and Moana hug.)
Moana: Until we meet again.
(Moana leaves. Koda walks over to chase.)
Koda: Uh, today your day, uh, focus, clean museum floor. Shelby: I'll do it. The last time he had floor duty, he left halfway through. Chase: Hey. There was a rugby match. Don't worry, guys. I've got a plan. No more distractions.
(Chase takes the mop, gets on his skateboard, and puts on his headphones. He takes off, mopping as he does.)
Tyler: Looks like he definitely figured out one way to concentrate. JC: Not sure using a skateboard while cleaning makes it easier to clean. If anything, it makes thing dirtier. But what do I know? Shelby: Wait a second. Koda, it's your day to clean the floor. Koda: Oh, I... Maybe he need, uh, concentrate on schedule, too.
(Morning in Amber Beach. Riley is running laps at a track. He then starts doing sit-ups.)
Riley: One... Two... Three...
(The sit-ups lead to push-ups, then crunches. Meanwhile, up in orbit, Poisandra is tasting cakes, all baked by an alien name Cavity.)
Poisandra: Let's see what the chocolate's like. Curio: I want a piece! Poisandra: Mm! This cake is divine! Cavity: Excellent. It shall be your wedding cake. Poisandra: Absolutely not.
(Poisandra slides the cakes into the trash, much to Curio's delight.)
Curio: Oh! Oh, yum! Poisandra: I need a cake so awful, so disgusting, that the guests are sure to remember my wedding for a long, long time! Cavity: As you desire.
Cavity: My masterpiece! This beautiful cake is filled to the brim with decay. Poisandra: You mean, tooth decay? As in, a mouthful of unbearable pain? Cavity: That no one will ever forget!
Fury: Setting prisoners free to bake you cakes? How dare you! Poisandra: This isn't just any cake. I'm picking the perfect wedding cake. Fury: Hmm, it's a waste of time. Poisandra: Oh, Fury. Don't say that until you've tasted it.
(Poisandra brings Fury a slice of cake.)
Fury: Well... Maybe just a bite.
(Fury eats the slice.)
Poisandra: So... What do you think? Fury: Needs more vinegar.
(Fury's mouth starts glowing.)
Fury: Ow! My teeth! What have you done, you pink Bridezilla?
Sledge: What's going on here? Cavity: Sledge! Poisandra: Cavity baked me an evil cake and Fury tried it. Sledge: Cavity! Cavity: Yes, sir, Sledge, sir? Sledge: Bake that cake for the Rangers. Make them suffer and then...
(Sledge blasts the cake.)
Sledge: Bring me their Energems. Cavity: Yes, sir!
(Down on Earth, in the lab, Riley is once again practicing his swordsmanship with tennis balls. But he is distracted, by the sound of Chase, slurping a drink through a straw, while listening to music through his headphones. Ace is sitting nearby, reading a comic book.)
Riley: Hello? Chase? Chase: Um... Riley: I'm trying to focus here. You should know how hard that can be. Ace: Yeah. From your experience with that mean magic monster. Chase: But bro, you just keep practicing the same sword move, over and over. Riley: I have my reasons, okay? Chase: Which are? Riley: Look, when Fury attacked me to get the green Energem... I wasn't able to keep up. That's why I practice. So next time, I'm ready. Chase: Look, we both want to defeat Fury. But the next attack could be different. Ace: He acts tough, but he's probably just a cowardly lion. Unless he has his courage medal someplace else. Chase: If I was you, I'd use your instincts and adapt, eh? So you're ready for any situation. Riley: Okay, you giving me training advice. Right. I've never seen you train. Not once. Chase: Just because I don't train the same way as you doesn't mean I don't train.
(Chase takes his Energem.)
Chase: I'm going out. Riley: Have fun.
(A tennis ball hits Riley in the face. Ace starts to chuckle, but stops himself.)
Riley: You know, you could use some training yourself. Ace: I train my hand-eye coordination all the time. Riley: Playing video games? Ace: Exactly. And my workout is mowing the lawn.
(Later, upstairs in the cafe...)
Tyler: I sure hope Kendall's right about the gold Energem. What do you think?
(A sign says there are free samples of a new recipe. But this is all part of Cavity's plan.)
Cavity (v/o): Free cake samples, compliments of the chef!
(The Rangers are studying a map.)
Tyler: Kendall says we should check the southwest creek beds. Ace (thinking): I'd rather check her bed. Riley: Okay, we're looking for pterodactyl fossils. That's the dinosaur that bonded with the gold energem.
(Shelby brings over a tray of cake slices.)
Shelby: Free samples. Chef's trying a new recipe. Tyler: Awesome.
(Tyler starts to take a bite, but Riley knocks it away.)
Tyler: Hmm…, a bit tasteless. Riley: Nobody touch it. Koda: No cake? Chase: Chill, bro. A little cake never hurt anyone. Ace: Try telling my mom that. Every time there's a birthday, she starts complaining about putting on weight. Riley (ignoring Ace): Yeah, tell that to them.
(Other customers are experiencing the tooth aches caused by Cavity's cake. They spot Cavity in the kitchen.)
Riley: Hey! Tyler: You guys take the front, we'll go through the kitchen! Chase: We'll cut him off.
(Tyler, Shelby and Koda enter the kitchen. The real Chef is tied up.)
Tyler: Help him! (into Communicator) He escaped out the back.
(Shelby unties the chef.)
Koda: You safe now.
(Chase, Riley and Ace arrive outside.)
Riley: We got a visual. Chase, Ace, Riley: Energize! Unleash the power!
(The three of them morph. They blast at Cavity as he runs.)
Cavity: Out of the frying pan and into the firing zone! Riley: He's getting away! Take the shot, Chase!
(Chase fires, hitting Cavity.)
Chase: Someone needs a dental plan. Cavity: I'm going to rot more than just your teeth.
(Cavity fires a blast of decay at the three Rangers, who quickly dodge. The blast hits a tree.)
Chase: The tree is decaying. Riley: This guy's serious.
Tyler: Don't let him escape! He'll rot the entire city! Ace: We need fluoride, and plenty of it. Cavity: Vivix, attack!
(Tyler and Ace start attacking the Vivix.)
Cavity: I'll beat you like eggs! Riley: I can take him. Chase: Be my guest. Let's just hope he shoots tennis balls at you. Riley: Is that supposed to be funny? Cavity: Decay time!
(Cavity fires several blasts of decay at Riley, who easily blocks them with his sword.)
Cavity: Hold still!
(Cavity decodes to take a more direct approach.)
Cavity: Open wide! This is going to hurt!
(Cavity charges at them.)
Chase: Nice job, Riley. Now let me show you what my training can do. Riley: Stop goofing off, I had him. Cavity: Bickering babies!
(Cavity attacks Riley and Chase with his right hand, a giant whisk.)
Chase: Tyler! Ace! Tyler: Hold on, guys! We're coming! Cavity: Until next time!
(Cavity teleports away, as the rest of the team arrives.)
Tyler: Whoa! That monster's crazy fast! Riley: He got away. Tyler: What happened, guys? Shelby: Are you okay, Riley? Riley: Yeah. (to Chase) You need to quit messing around. One of us could have gotten hurt.
(Riley runs off.)
Shelby: Man, what's going on with you two? Chase: He just doesn't get me.
(Later, back at the cafe...)
Kendall: These are the leftover pieces of the poison cake. Riley: Okay, we need to record how much was eaten by each person and then whether it was the cake or the frosting. Kendall: And hopefully come up with an antidote.
(Ace watches from the entrance. The others watch from the kitchen.)
Kendall: Victim number one. Riley: Okay. Two cake bites, one frosting. Victim number two, it looks like three cake bites and no frosting. JC: Pretty sure it's not really the cake. It's whatever that monster does to it.
(Chase arrives, and starts cleaning the cake samples off the table.)
Riley: Wait, whoa, whoa! Stop, stop, stop, stop! What are you doing? Chase: I'm cleaning up. That's what I'm supposed to be doing, right? Riley: No, not these. We need to figure out what's going on first. Chase: My instincts tell me that what's going on is that if you eat the cake, you get a toothache. Riley: It's not that simple. Chase: It is that simple. Riley: We need to analyze it first. Chase: You always love to analyze things. Riley: Yes. Chase: Look.
(Chase empties a garbage can on a table.)
Chase: Analyze that. Kendall: Oh, enough. Both of you, out of here, and don't come back until you sort this out.
(Chase leaves, getting on his board.)
Riley: You can't skate in here. JC: You say this now, when you had no problem with him skating the other day while mopping?
(Down in the lab, Riley tries to practice, but cant seem to block a single tennis ball.)
Keeper: Your anger dulls your skill. What distracts you, Riley? Riley: Just having an off day. Keeper: Hmm. Quite off, I should say, for you to hide your true thoughts from me. Riley: It's Chase, he doesn't take anything seriously. Keeper: Chase's intentions appear to be as sincere as yours, yet you judge his approach? Riley: It's all a big joke to him. That monster's on the loose, and where's Chase? He goes skateboarding. Keeper: Things aren't always as they appear.
(Keeper grabs two tennis balls.)
Keeper: Tell me this, Riley. Is it not possible that two different paths can lead to the same destination?
(Keeper throws one tennis ball directly into a bin. He throws the other on a different course, where it ricochets around, before also going into the bin.)
Keeper: Maybe you and Chase aren't as different as you think.
(Keeper leaves. Elsewhere in Amber Beach...)
Poisandra: At this rate, we'll never get back to testing wedding cakes. Cavity: I don't have time for your cake! Not when there's Rangers to destroy! Curio: Oh, sprinkles and frosting, I wanted cake! Poisandra: How dare you? Cavity: My loyalty is to Sledge. Poisandra: Well, I never.
(Cavity becomes angry, destroying his Chef's smock.)
Cavity: I have real work to do. Poisandra: What's going on? Cavity: Out of my way, pinky! Poisandra: Oh!
(Elsewhere, Tyler, Shelby and Ace are in Tyler's jeep.)
Computer: No alien vital signs within this quadrant.
(Koda drops out of a tree, landing next to Ace.)
Koda: I see no monster. Shelby: Let's search northeast. Ace: Great. While the computer is doing its thing, I can run into the game store.
(Elsewhere, Chase is on his board.)
Chase: If I was that rotten creep, I'd go where I could cause the most decay.
(A scream is heard from nearby.)
Chase: I guess my gut was right.
(Chase finds Cavity, trying to bring down a bridge.)
Cavity: This should bring the rangers out! Chase (into communicator): Anybody there?
(Back in the lab, Riley has regained his focus, and has resumed practicing, when the communicator beeps.)
Chase (v/o): I found our cake maker, and he's ruining more than teeth. Better hurry. Riley: Chase found him?
(Back in the city, Chase confronts Cavity.)
Chase: Hold it right there, pastry face! I can smell your decay a mile away. Cavity: Just a mile?
(Chase fires a blast with his Morpher, knocking Cavity down.)
Chase: Dino Charger, ready! Energize! Ha! Unleash the power!
(Chase morphs, Cavity gets back up.)
Chase: Don't mess with a hotshot! Cavity: It's time your teeth matched your black suit! Chase: I reckon that'll be tough, mate, I floss.
(Cavity fires several blasts of decay at Chase, who nimbly dodges them.)
Chase: You're just too slow. Cavity: Impossible! Chase: Gotta take out those teeth!
(Chase fires a blast at Cavity's mouth, but the blast does nothing.)
Cavity: These cavities aren't going away that easily!
(Cavity hits Chase with a decay blast.)
Cavity: How does it feel, Ranger?
Chase: Ow, my tooth! Cavity: Just what Sledge ordered. And now, the icing on the cake. Say goodbye, Black Ranger!
(Cavity is about to bring his whisk down on Chase, when Riley arrives, blocking with his Dino Saber.)
Chase: Riley! Cavity: Excellent. Another ranger to destroy! Riley: I'll protect you! Cavity: Don't even try!
(Cavity fires, but Riley dodges.)
Cavity: If you hold still, it'll hurt less! Are you listening?
(The other Rangers arrive.)
Tyler: Riley, duck! Cavity: What?
(Riley ducks, as the other Rangers fire, knocking Cavity off his feet.)
Riley: I thought you were at the skate park. Chase: Why would I be messing around when that chef is still on the loose? Riley: Yeah, guess you wouldn't be. Chase: Trust me. Even though we do things differently, we fight for the same thing. Riley: I'm sorry. I thought that you were-- Chase: Forget it. Just destroy those rotten teeth of his. Tyler: Good find, Chase. Now let's destroy this chef. Ace: I should have stocked up on gel toothpaste. Riley: It's Morphin time. Dino Chargers! Chase: Ah! Koda: You okay? Chase: Go. Rangers: Ready! Energize! Ha! Unleash the power!
(The Rangers morph.)
Chase: Ow! Ah! Cavity: You're all mine! Tyler: Power Rangers, charged! Tyrannosaurus Rex! Power Ranger, red! Chase: Parasaur! Power-- Ah, ahh! Riley: Hey, don't force it, hotshot. Chase: Thanks. Riley: Next. Koda: Stegosaurus! Power Ranger, blue! Riley: Velociraptor! Power Ranger, green! Shelby: Triceratops! Power Ranger, pink! JC: Brontosaurus! Power Ranger, brown! Ace: Tupandactylus! Power Ranger, diamond! Quatra: Power Ranger, Rainbow! Rangers: Dinosaur might, ready to fight! Power Rangers! Chase: Ah... ahh! Rangers (minus Chase): Dino Charge! Chase: Ah! Tyler: Oh, hang in there, Chase! Cavity: I'll rot all your teeth this time! Ace: You remind me of some old toothpaste commercials I saw online. "We make holes in teeth. We make holes in teeth." Tyler: You'll never beat our team because it's about to get wild. Cavity: Vivix! Destroy those rangers! Tyler: Put a bite in these guys!
(The Rangers start fighting the Vivix.)
Koda: Dino Morpher, Dino Saber, combine! Polar Blast! Shelby: You can keep coming, but I'll keep kicking. Ace: I've beaten tougher opponents than these Vivix in old school beat'em up games. Riley: Good try, monsters, but not good enough.
(Chase fights, trying to ignore the pain in his mouth.)
Chase: Gah! Ah.
(Vivix grab him.)
Chase: Uh, guys? Riley: I'm on it, Chase.
(Riley easily dispatches the Vivix.)
Chase: Not bad. Now who's the hotshot? Riley: Just 'til you see a dentist. Chase: Thanks, bro. Tyler: Focus the blast on his teeth. Rangers (minus Chase and Riley): Energize! Dino Morpher Blast!
(The Rangers fire, but the blasts are deflected.)
Riley: This doesn't look good. Chase: The blasters aren't strong enough. Cavity: Who wants to be next? Riley: Let's try your Para charger and my Dino Saber. Chase: Hmm, together? Well, that just might work. Riley: Yeah, I'm adapting to the situation. Cavity: This will only hurt a lot! Riley: Dino Charger, ready! Morpher: Para charger, engage! Riley: Dino Saber! Chase: He needs to try some of his own medicine. Riley: You got it!
(Riley charges, deflecting Cavity's blasts.)
Riley: Here's a taste of green and black! Power Slash! Gotcha!
(The attack destroys all of Cavity’s teeth.)
Cavity: My teeth! My beautiful teeth! Tyler: Nice! Shelby: Yeah! Riley: Now it's your turn for a new combo, Chase.
Riley: Ha ha! Now, that's a hotshot. Chase: Good on you, mate. Riley: That definitely isn't something you can train for.
(Up on Sledge's ship...)
Poisandra: Oh, no! You've got to save him, Sledge. He makes the perfect wedding cake. Sledge: Magna Beam!
(Cavity, and his teeth, are restored.)
Cavity: It's not over yet, Rangers! Koda: The rotten teeth are back! Cavity: Destroying you is going to make my smile even brighter! Tyler: We need the Dino Charge Megazord. Ace: Finally, I can rest. Until Kendall locates my Zord.)
Rangers: Dino Charger, ready! Morpher: Dino Charger, engage! Zords, combine! Dino Charge Megazord, ready! Cavity: This will be a piece of cake. Tyler: Rangers! Tyler, Shelby, Koda: Battle mode! Tyler: Time for a major tooth extraction.
(The Megazord charges, deflecting Cavity's blasts.)
Tyler: This creep's teeth are even more powerful now! Cavity: Pathetic!
(The rest of the Rangers watch from a nearby rooftop.)
Chase: That is one tough cavity. Riley: We need to get in there and help. Chase: I've got an idea. If we knock him back... Riley: We'll have an opening to get into the cockpit.
(Cavity points the Megazord, rocking it.)
Chase (v/o): Tyler, how about using the Dino Blaze Charger? Tyler: Great idea. Chase: Deep fry that chef and we'll come help. Tyler: Let's turn up the heat. Dino Charger, ready! Morpher: Dino Blaze Charger, engage. Tyler, Koda, Shelby: Dino Charge Megazord, flamethrower!
(The flame blast forces Cavity away from the Megazord, allowing Chase and Riley to enter the cockpit.)
Tyler: Let's see how he handles all five of us! Yeah! Koda: Stego. Ready for action. We do this together. Tyler: You said it. All five, ready! Rangers: Ready! Morpher: Dino Charge Megazord, Stego Saber!
(Part of the Stego Zord transforms into a Sword.)
Tyler: You're going down! Rangers: Stego Saber!
(The Megazord slashes at Cavity.)
Cavity: Ah! Don't knock my fillings out! Tyler: That's the plan!
(One more slashed, and Cavity is toothless once again.)
Cavity: Not again! I need false teeth! Tyler: Ain't that the tooth? Rangers: Stego Zord!
Sledge: That half-baked chef couldn't bring back a single energem. Poisandra: I don't care about Energems. I want to personally destroy those rangers so we can finally get out of here and have our wedding. Fury: A heart-shaped whiner's not going to take down the rangers. Sledge: And who are you to talk? You've defeated the exact same number of rangers as she has... Zero! Useless monsters.
Poisandra: Oh! I think you hurt Kitty's feelings. Better kiss it and make it better.
(Poisandra blows Fury a heart-shaped kiss. He slashes it with his sword.)
Fury: Don't test me, candy cane!
(Sometime later, Riley is getting ready for his morning workout. Chase rides up on his skateboard.)
Chase: Hey. Thought I might join you for a run. Riley: Really? Okay. Chase, I owe you an apology. When I was growing up on my family's ranch, everyone used to make assumptions about me and they were mostly wrong ones. I was totally wrong about you, Chase. And I'm sorry.
(Chase takes out an earbud.)
Chase: Oh, did you say something? Riley: No, it was nothing. Never mind.
(The other Rangers arrive as well.)
Tyler: Hey. Chase: Hey. Tyler: You were pretty awesome against Cavity. Shelby: So we figured maybe we should train with you. Ace: And if I get in good enough shape, maybe someone will notice me.
(Ace starts thinking about Kendall.)
Riley: Great. Well, the first rule is no rules. Chase: Hmm? Seriously? Well, in that case. I'll ride. Koda: So, no rules. How can that be rule? Riley: Just use your instincts and adapt to whatever happens. Chase: Adapt? This could be dangerous. Riley: Just see if you can keep up, hotshot.
(Riley does a flip over a table.)
Tyler Nice! Go, Riley! Let's have some fun!
(The Rangers start doing whatever they feel like, Flips, jumps, and then, a race to the top of some stairs.)
(The guys are working hard in the sun, while Shelby is sitting in the shade, looking at a book)
Chase: Hey. What's she up to? Ace: Hopefully, something to get us out of here faster. This is wasting time I could be using to master a new game, or pop in a blu-ray.
(In the shade...)
Shelby: Ugh. Something isn't right. Chase: How about lending a hand? Shelby: Follow me for a sec. Keeper gave thirteen Energems to thirteen different dinosaurs. Koda: Of course. Wait, I, uh... What? Shelby: We found eight Energems, but five are still lost. Those Energems will only be found near the fossils of the pterodactyl, ankylosaurus, pachysaurus, plesiosaurus, and titanosaurus. We shouldn't dig here just because we found bones here before. Ace: And, the point is...? Tyler: Okay, then. Where should we dig? Shelby: I don't know exactly. But I have an idea. Check this out. If we combine the known areas where the remaining dinosaurs lived with the energy signatures from each dinosaur's Energem, then we can pinpoint more accurately where to look. Ace: That's brilliant, Shelb. Koda: Energy signature... What is Shelby say? Chase: She just doesn't like getting dirty. Shelby: No. What I'm saying is... We need to work smarter, not harder. Ace: I think a duck said that on an old cartoon I watched with my Mom. Riley: Yeah, actually, she might be right about that energy signature, but... how would you ever track it?
(Tyler picks up a cup, and it's empty.)
Tyler: Hey. Chase: You finished all our drinks? Shelby: What? It's really hot out here. Tyler: Yeah. We noticed. Koda: Shelby drink like... camel.
(Ace pulls a bottle of sports drink out of the pocket of his jumpsuit. It's a little warm, but still cool enough to help quench his thirst and cool him off.)
Shelby: Shouldn't we at least test my theory?
(No one says anything.)
Shelby: Fine, then. I don't need anything from you guys anyway.
(Shelby starts to leave, but quickly turns around.)
Shelby: Uh... I need your keys.
(Someone tosses Shelby some keys.)
Shelby: And this.
(Shelby grabs the last cup with anything left in it.)
Ace: Hope she can make it back to the museum without having to stop, given how much she drank.
(Up in orbit, Fury and Sledge are in one of the cell blocks.)
Fury: Master Sledge! It takes time to find the Energems. They could be buried anywhere. Sledge: If it's so difficult, how did the Rangers find five of them so fast? Get me the Energems, or I'll put a bounty on your head. Fury: Yes, sir. Sledge: Oh, pathetic!
Poisandra: Can you believe the Rangers found five Energems? It can't be that hard. Curio: I'll bet even we can find an Energem.
(Wrench enters off to clean the ship.)
Wrench: Coming through! Poisandra: Yes, indeed. We're the perfect duet. We can do it all by ourselves. Curio: That's right! Poisandra: Wrench! We need your help. Wrench: Oh, please. The last time I helped you, Sledge and Fury were very angry. Poisandra: They won't be angry because they won't know. Together, you and I are going to destroy the Rangers.
(Poisandra drags Wrench away, as Curio laughs. Down on the surface, Shelby returns to the lab.)
Kendall: You're back early. Is everything okay? What happened? Shelby: Well, actually. Something did happen. I came up with an idea for how to find the other Energems. Kendall: Oh. Really? I think you underestimate how difficult it is to find an Energem. Shelby: And I think you underestimate me. Ever since I first got here, I've been waiting tables, mopping floors, and being a pretty good Pink Ranger, if I do say so myself. But I've also got a lot of ideas going on up here. The problem is, no one will listen. Kendall: Okay, Shelby. I'm listening. Shelby: Uh... Well... We combine known facts about the five remaining dinosaurs. Climate, known breeding grounds, food sources, stuff I know, with a global scan of the energy signatures for each of those dinosaur's Energems. That stuff I thought you could help me figure out. Kendall: Global scan of energy signatures? Highly doubtful. Unless of course we... Yes. Hmm... That would require DNA samples, and the processing power required would limit us to just one dinosaur at a time. Well, are you gonna watch or help?
(Shelby smiles. She goes over to a shelf with samples of Dinosaur fossils.)
Shelby: Hmm, let's start with the ankylosaurus. It bonded to the Aqua Energem. Kendall: Very well. Ankylosaurus it is.
(The two of them get to work.)
Shelby: We'll extract a DNA sample from an ankylosaurus fossil. Kendall: And blend that DNA with the energy signatures from your five Dino Chargers to create our first Ankylo charger. We'll build a machine to search for energy signatures that match the new Ankylo charger. This Dino Charger should be able to temporarily power our machine while it searches for the Aqua Energem. Shelby: Does that mean it can also locate and power the Ankylo Zord? Kendall: Yes, theoretically.
(Using the existing Dino Chargers, Shelby and Kendall complete work on a new Dino Charger, an aqua blue one.)
(The others finally return.)
Riley: Hey, guys, we're back. Shelby: Welcome home, gentlemen. Chase: Hey. Shelby: Find anything? Koda: I think I found poison ivy. Ace: I found some rocks for my collection, but nothing even close to an Energem. A real nice arrowhead, a few trilobites, some quartz. Even some iron pyrite, which someone thought was real gold. Chase: Well, it shined like gold. Ace: Well, considering it's known as fool's gold, I guess that makes Chase.... Nah, too easy. Kendall: Well, we had a very successful day. Shelby: This is the Ankylo charger. It's the brain that runs our new invention. The e-tracer. Ace: You know, Shelb if we had not already tried this a few years ago, I'd be asking you out right now. (Thinking) And hoped it would make Kendall jealous. Which it probably wouldn’t.
Riley: Let me see that.
(Shelby places the Ankylo Charger into the e-tracer, and it begins searching.)
Riley: Yes! You did it. Shelby: It's using the satellite network, trying to find an Energem signature. Kendall: It's searching for traces of the Aqua Energem.
(The e-tracer beeps.)
Kendall: It's locking onto something.
(Sledge's ship passes close to the satellite the E-tracer is connected to. And somehow, Wrench can tap into the signal.)
Wrench: Oh, boy, this is huge. Poisandra: Mmm! What is it? Wrench: I've intercepted a satellite search! I bet it's the Rangers looking for Energems! Poisandra: And what did they find? Wrench: Something big.
(Back in the lab...)
Kendall: That's definitely the right energy signature. But I can't say if it's an Energem. It might be a Zord. Riley: It isn't too far away. Shelby: Come on, guys. This time, we're going to dig in the right place.
(Using the communicator, linked to the e-tracer, Shelby leads the other Rangers to where the signal is coming from.)
Shelby: Should be right up... here. Riley: Holy moly.
(All they find is a very large hole in the ground.)
Tyler: Looks like someone beat us to it. Ace: And I'm guessing it wasn’t Bugs Bunny.
(An alien named Stingrage jumps out of the hole, accompanied by Vivix.)
Stingrage: Surprise! Yo, heads up! Poisandra sends her regards! And now I'll destroy you!
(The Rangers charge into battle. The Vivix are easy to defeat, as usual, but Stingrage is tougher.)
Stingrage: You'll get a kick out of fighting me!
(Stingrage knocks Chase down.)
Stingrage: See? There you go. Chase: Don't let him get away. He might have the Energem. Tyler: I'm on it!
(Riley scans with his communicator.)
Riley: No sign of an Energem. Stingrage: There may not be an Energem, but I left a little something for you anyway!
(Stingrage tosses Tyler to the ground.)
Koda: My turn!
(Koda flips into battle.)
Stingrage: Not bad, Ranger. But not good enough!
(Stingrage knocks Koda down with one end of his trident.)
Stingrage: Get the point?
(Using the other end, Stingrage fires a dart at Koda.)
Koda: Aah! Aah! Aah!
(Koda winces in pain.)
Tyler: What did you do to him? Riley: Koda, are you okay?
(Koda answers with a spin kick, nearly knocking down the other Rangers.)
Stingrage: Bye-bye! Have fun fighting your friend!
Riley: Not cool, man! Tyler: Koda! Stop!
(Koda launches Tyler into the air.)
(Chase breaks Tyler's fall, with his back.)
Shelby: What's gotten into him? Ace: Somehow I doubt this is how cavemen react to poison ivy. So it's something that monster did to him. Shelby: Koda-- aah! Riley: Koda? Koda?
(Chase and Tyler try to grab Koda.)
Tyler: Get him on the ground!
(Koda doesn’t stay down for long.)
Tyler: Something's on his back! Chase: That must be making him do this.
(Riley and Chase grab Koda.)
Chase: Settle down, mate. Riley: It's some kind of stinger, pull it out.
(With Riley and Chase holding Koda from the side, Tyler rushes in to hold him from the front.)
Shelby: Hold still!
(Shelby pulls out the stinger.)
Koda: Uh, guys? Chase: Koda, are you okay now? Koda: Yes, I am okay. Why you hug me?
(Shelby shows Koda the stinger. Before he can react, the Ankylo Zord bursts out of the ground.)
Shelby: It's the Ankylo Zord. Riley: Oh, that is one angry Zord. Ace: Like my Dad the time Mom came home with a dent on the car's fender. Koda: It look powerful!
(The Ankylo Zord nearly hits the Rangers with its hammer tail, before burrowing back underground.)
Tyler: That was a close one. Shelby: Why would it attack us?
(The Rangers return to the lab.)
Riley: The Ankylo Zord is awake, that means the Aqua Energem bonded to someone. Shelby: You mean there's an Aqua Power Ranger out there? Ace: Well, that's a new color. From what I've read about the Power Rangers. There's a whole museum about them in Gray Lake. I went there when I visited my Aunt, Uncle and cousin Bree. Keeper: That is correct. But he may not know we exist or may have chosen for some reason not to join us yet. What is important now is the Ankylo Zord. It shares the Aqua Energem's power and would not normally attack us.
(Koda sees the stinger Shelby took out of his back.)
Koda: Maybe... monster sting Zord, like it sting me. Tyler: That would explain it. Riley: Well, if so, we need to remove the stinger. Chase: Good luck. Did you see the size of that thing? Ace: Not to mention that very heavy hammer it almost turned us into flapjacks with. Shelby: I'll do it. Tyler: No way. It's too dangerous. Shelby: Someone has to do it. Besides, it's my stupid e-tracer that somehow screwed up and gave away the Zord’s location to Sledge. Kendall: Actually... Your device worked brilliantly.
(Kendall takes off her glasses. Ace nearly falls out of his seat, trying to get a better look at her.)
Kendall: Sledge got the location of the Zord because I didn't encrypt the e-tracer's code. It's my fault we lost control of the Ankylo Zord. Somehow, I'll find a solution.
(Kendall leaves the lab. Shelby follows her. Kendall gets into the museum truck, and starts to drive off. Up on Sledge's ship...)
Fury: That pink featherbrain thought she could get a Ranger on her own? Stingrage belongs in a cell.
(Sledge walks over to Poisandra.)
Sledge: Fury tells me you're interfering, that you took Stingrage to Earth. Poisandra: Tattletale! Did he also tell you that I nearly caught the Blue Ranger? Or that we found a Ranger's zord and stung it? Stingrage: It's true. My stinger made the zord go crazy. It nearly destroyed the Rangers. Sledge: You stung a zord, huh? Not bad. But if you don't bring me an Energem, you're going to wish you were safely behind bars. Got it? Stingrage: Yes, of course, Master Sledge.
(Back on Earth, Kendall stops the truck and gets out. She reaches under a tarp, and finds Shelby.)
Kendall: Oh, good grief. Stowing away again? Really a bad idea. Shelby: Yeah, and going after the Ankylo Zord alone is also a really bad idea.
(Kendall gets out some gear.)
Kendall: I rarely make mistakes, but when I do, I correct them. No excuses. Shelby: Look, we created this problem together. Let's solve it together. Kendall: I simply cannot be responsible for sending you down this hole. It's just too dangerous.
(But it isn’t much safer on the surface, as Stingrage, Poisandra and some Vivix arrive.)
Stingrage: Maybe you can't, but I can!
(Stingrage starts firing.)
(Shelby pushes Kendall out of the way, but the blast catches her, forcing her into the hole.)
Shelby: Whoa! Aah! Poisandra: Hole in one, Stingrage!
(Shelby quickly morphs before she can hit the bottom.)
Stingrage: Vivix, attack the nearsighted scientist!
(Kendall grabs a shovel to defend herself.)
Kendall: Get away from me!
(Unfortunately, she's still outnumbered.)
Kendall: Gotta run.
(Kendall starts to flee. Down in the hole...)
Shelby: Ooh. That hurt. Ooh. Good thing I could morph.
(A growl is heard.)
Shelby: Oh... the Ankylo Zord!
(It approaches her.)
Shelby: Hello, Ankylo Zord. You're a vegetarian, remember?
(Shelby sees what she's looking for.)
Shelby: There's the stinger.
(The Zord gets closer, and angrier.)
Shelby: Whoa, whoa! This doesn't look good!
(Up top, Kendall is still running.)
Poisandra: Get that weakling.
(One of the Vivix grabs for her shovel.)
Kendall: Let go!
(With no where else to run, Kendall starts fighting again. Until Stingrage arrives.)
(Stingrage fires a blast that knocks Kendall to the ground.)
Stingrage: Sit right there, smarty pants. One little sting, and it'll all be over. Poisandra: Destroy her! Stingrage: Gladly.
(Thankfully, back-up has arrived.)
Tyler: Not so fast!
(Tyler takes the shovel.)
Tyler: Nice job, Miss Morgan. Koda: There they are! Kendall, okay? Kendall: I'm fine, thank you. Ace (thinking): That's a relief. Although, if I had been the one to save her, I might have gotten rewarded. Maybe with a kiss. Kendall: But Shelby, she fell down the hole. Tyler: She's down there with the Ankylo Zord? Oh, no! Shelby! Ace: Hang on, Shelb!
(Tyler and Ace take off for the hole.)
Riley: Can you do an underground scan? Kendall: Yes, I can do one from the base. Riley: Good.
(Kendall heads back to the lab.)
Stingrage: You won't get away from me, Red and Diamond Rangers! Easy to catch, easy to sting! Tyler: Out of my way, you overgrown insect! Ace: Before I go get a can of Raid! Stingrage: Looking for someone you care about? Tyler: You asked for it! Koda: We help Tyler and Ace! Others: Yeah!
(Chase and Ace start dealing with Poisandra, while Tyler focuses on Stingrage, and the others battle Vivix.)
Poisandra: I think you'll find me a little tougher to defeat. Chase: Oh, yeah? Ace: I think the Lollipop Guild is wondering where you wandered off to. You're their mascot, right?
(Poisandra nearly shoves Chase to the ground, but he leaps out of the way.)
Chase: That was close. Poisandra: Can't handle my sweet moves, Black Ranger? Ace: He's cutting back on sweets, after that nasty baker caused him some tooth problems.
(Chase and Ace both sidestep, and Poisandra falls on her face.)
Poisandra: Aah! Ace: Talk about heartache.
(Stingrage has taken an advantage in his fight with Tyler.)
Stingrage: Easier than swatting flies!
(Tyler is knocked to the ground. The other Rangers regroup near him.)
Stingrage: I'm going to knock you flat!
(Stingrage fires a blast, knocking the Rangers off their feet.)
Poisandra: Defenseless Rangers. Sting them all, and they'll destroy each other. Stingrage: You're finished, Rangers! Koda: We must fight! Ace: At least Kendall got away.
(Before Stingrage can attack, the Ankylo Zord surfaces, with Shelby riding on it.)
Shelby: You're done, Stingrage! You've stung your last victim! Dino Morpher blast!
(Shelby fires, knocking down, Stingrage, Poisandra and Curio.)
Shelby: I hope that stings! Tyler: Shelby, you're okay! Shelby: I got the stinger out of the Ankylo Zord. Tyler: Really? You're awesome! Ace: I’ve known that for a few years now. That's why we're such good friends. Shelby: Looks like you guys are still working too hard. Koda: Next time, we work smarter. Shelby: That's right! Tyler: I was worried. Shelby: Yeah, you should have been. Looks like it was a close call till I showed up. Now let's finish this. Tyler: You said it. Stingrage: You'll pay for that! Tyler: Tyrannosaurus Rex! Power Ranger, Red! Chase: Parasaur! Power Ranger, Black! Koda: Stegosaurus! Power Ranger, Blue! Riley: Velociraptor! Power Ranger, Green! Shelby: Triceratops! Power Ranger, Pink! JC: Brontosaurus! Power Ranger, Brown! Ace: Tupandactylus! Power Ranger Diamond! Quatra: Power Ranger Rainbow! Stingrage: Oh, please! Shelby: I'll take down StingRage. Ace; be careful, Shelb. Poisandra: Vivix! Attack!
(The guys deal with the Vivix.)
Shelby: How dare you sting a zord?
(Shelby knocks Stingrage down with a kick, before readying her Morpher.)
(Shelby charges, striking Stingrage down with her drill.)
Stingrage: Oh, no... Looks like I got stung this time.
Shelby: And that's how it's done! Rangers: Yeah! Tyler: Nice job, Shelby. Koda: Very good. Ace: You go, girl. Shelby: Thanks.
(Up on Sledge's ship...)
Sledge: See how these Rangers deal with a massive sting! Magna beam!
(The Magna beam is fired at StingRage.)
Shelby: Oh, no! Tyler: These guys never give up. Time to call in some Zords. Rangers: Dino Charger, ready!
(The Zords arrive.) Stingrage: Come and get me! Tyler: Bite him, Rexy!
(Rexy clamps down on Stingrage's right arm.)
Stingrage: No! Let go, you big dumb dino! Tyler: Watch out for his stingers! Koda: We need smash him. Shelby: Good idea. Ankylo Zord can help. Riley: You think he'll respond to you? Shelby: Sure. He owes me a favor. Dino Charge Megazord, Tri-Ankylo Formation. Morpher: Zords combine!
(Tyrannosaurus and Triceratops join with the Ankylo Zord.)
Morpher: Dino Charge Megazord, Tri-Ankylo Formation, ready! Tyler: Awesome. Shelby: Wow. This combo sounds powerful! Stingrage: That's what you're going to fight me with? This'll be easy!
(The one-two combo hits Stingrage like two tons of bricks.)
Koda: Ankylo Zord very strong. Shelby: We got this guy on the ropes. Tyler: Let's squash this insect. Rangers: Ankylo Zord! Final...
(The Megazord starts spinning, hitting Stingrage with the Ankylo-Hammer on every pass.)
Rangers: Hammer punch! Stingrage: That really stings!
(Stingrage is launched skyward, where he explodes.)
Tyler: All right! Shelby: Welcome to the family, Ankylo Zord. Tyler: Monster extinct!
(Up in orbit...)
Fury: Get over here, you candy queen. You're going to tell me how you found that zord. Poisandra: Lay one grimy claw on me, and Sledge will grind you into space dust! Sledge (v/o): Poisandra! Poisandra (laughing): Coming, Sledge-ums! Maybe I'm smarter than you think, Fury. Better watch your back.
(Back in the cafe...)
Riley: So... Kendall fixed the e-tracer. Sledge can't steal her data anymore. Chase: Once we've found the other Energems... Tyler: Ahem.
(A blonde waitress brings them drinks.)
Tyler: Thank you. Chase: Thanks.
(The waitress leaves.)
Chase: Once we've found the other Energems, I'm thinking I might head home. See my mum in New Zealand.
(Shelby walks in.)
Shelby: Hmm. Man, is it hot today.
(The guys all grab their drinks.)
Shelby: Very funny. JC: Not really, with how you drunk all our drinks before.. Riley: No, but your invention is gonna help our search a lot. I mean, its genius. Koda: My grandfather, famous caveman. He invent... very complicated machine, too. Shelby: Really? Wow.
(Koda draws a picture of his grandfather's invention. Something that isn’t so complicated today.)
Koda: It’s called "wheel."
(Kendall arrives, with a box. Ace follows her in.)
Shelby: We crushed it, Kendall. Kendall: Yes, we did crush it. Because of your recent invention, the museum has a gift for you. A fossil from your Favorite dinosaur. Shelby: A triceratops fossil?
(Shelby opens the box and pulls out a large petrified clump.)
Shelby: Uh... I don't recognize this bone. Koda: Uh... That is poop. Kendall: Yes, Koda, it's a very rare specimen. Shelby: Dino dung? Ew!
(Shelby drops it, and it shatters.)
Koda: Now lots of rare specimen. Shelby: Ugh!
(Shelby wipes her hands on Koda, while the other Rangers laugh. Kendall doesn’t find it so funny.)
(In orbit, Sledge and Poisandra are walking through the ship.)
Sledge: Every intergalactic bounty hunter needs a girl like you, Poisandra. Smart, beautiful, heart-shaped.
(They arrive on the bridge.)
Fury: Ah, Master Sledge. I have a plan to get the Rangers' tracking device. Poisandra: Oh, don't try to steal my thunder. I'm the one who found out about their machine while you were taking a catnap. Curio: And purring! Fury: Who asked you, rag doll? (to Poisandra) Beginner's luck. Sledge: Maybe. Maybe not. Poisandra: Give me a chance and I'll prove luck had nothing to do with it. This one calls for brains, not brawn. Sledge: Well, I think it's time we give my leading lady her moment in the spotlight. Poisandra: Oh, Sledgems! My first mission. I must start immediately. Wrench, come with me. Wrench: Huh?
(Poisandra drags Wrench into one of the cell blocks.)
Poisandra: A girl can't go on a mission without her evil accessories, and why can't they be cute, too? I'll take you.
(Poisandra selects a monster named Duplicon.)
Duplicon: What? Me? Poisandra: Wrench, let him out. Wrench: Okay.
(Fury walks in.)
Fury: Finally, Sledge is going to realize how worthless you are. Poisandra: Jealous kitty. With this monster's skills, the rangers won't know whose friend or whose foe!
(Down in Earth, the Rangers are in the forest. Koda sits in a tree, while Riley and Shelby set up the e-tracer.)
Riley: I'll set the e-tracer here. Shelby: This Dino Charger has been created to detect energy from the gold Energem, or the Ptera Zord. Hopefully, the e-tracer will locate one of them. Ace: And then we can get back to town. I can’t even get a signal on my phone out here. JC: Sounds like you're too dependent on technology.
(Tyler is writing in a journal.)
Tyler (writing): I miss you so much, Dad. I even still wear your bracelet, keeping it safe until I finally find you. Today is June 10th. Being a ranger is not easy, but we've got a great team, even though Chase gets distracted by girls sometimes.
Chase: Tina loves me. Tina loves me not. Tyler (writing): He definitely has our backs. Ace can also be distracted, usually by one of his obsessions. Whether it's entertainment, or his crush on Miss Morgan. But, he's always there when we need him. And loves Shelby like a sister. Riley is always analyzing things and training. He makes me try harder, too. Riley: Okay, I calibrated it to search the grids from left to right. Tyler (writing): Shelby's really smart, and hey, I think she's cute... Shelby: No, not left to right. I've already calibrated it to search right to left. Tyler (writing): ...and kinda stubborn. And Koda, well, you wouldn't believe how strong his animal instincts are. I can't stop thinking Fury had something to do with your disappearance. Nothing's gonna keep me from finding you, Dad. Especially not Fury.
(Koda leaps down from his perch, startling Tyler.)
Tyler: Koda. I asked you to stop doing that. Koda: Tyler, you smell. Tyler (sniffs): I do? Koda: No. The air. Smell.
(The communicators chirp.)
Kendall (v/o): Alien bio signs in your area. Tyler: Hey, shut down the e-tracer. We need to get out of here now.
(Tyler takes the e-tracer.)
Shelby: Careful, that's irreplaceable. Riley: Okay, start the Jeep, we're right behind you. We'll keep watch while you load up.
(Tyler takes the e-tracer to the jeep. He places it in a case, secured to the back. He gets in and starts the engine.
(The other Rangers arrive, fully morphed, and get in the jeep.)
Tyler: Huh? Oh. Uh, are we morphing?
(Chase just puts a finger over his mouth, and points.)
Tyler: Okay. I'll get us out of here.
(Tyler starts driving.)
Tyler: The e-tracer is safe now. You can de-morph.
(Suddenly, the jeep's engine starts acting up.)
Tyler: What? Not now.
(Tyler pulls over to check under the hood.)
Tyler: Sorry, guys, I just tuned her up.
(Tyler opens the hood, and finds a cut wire.)
Tyler: Now, how did that happen?
(Tyler's communicator chirps. And it's someone who he thought was in the jeep.)
Shelby (v/o): Is that supposed to be funny? Tyler: Shelby? Shelby (v/o): You just took off and left us. Tyler: What? I'm looking right... at you.
(As Tyler looks towards the back, he sees some familiar figures taking the e-tracer. And it's not his teammates.)
(All the Rangers who got in the jeep with Tyler were disguised Vivix. Poisandra, Curio and Duplicon arrive.)
Poisandra: How do you like my friend's cloning abilities? Tyler: Poisandra! Duplicon: Now, you're just in our way, Red Ranger!
(Duplicon and Tyler start fighting.)
Tyler: Fake rangers, huh? Nice trick. But now you're facing a real one. Duplicon: You're pretty tough. But not tough enough!
(Duplicon blasts Tyler, sending him flying.)
Poisandra: Whoo-hoo! It wasn't very difficult to remove that annoyance. Great performance, boys. Now, let's take our new machine and search for some Energems! Duplicon: Okay!
(Tyler blacks out. Later, the other Rangers return to the lab. Kendall and Keeper are searching for Tyler.)
Koda: You... find Tyler? Kendall: No, he still isn't responding. Riley: I'm gonna scan the city for alien DNA. Shelby: When I talked to him, Tyler thought he was with us. Whoever he was with, they were fooling him.
(The scanners are picking up something.)
Riley: Alien bio signs detected in the city complex. Koda: Then that's where we go, yes? Shelby: Maybe we should split up. I could go back to the woods and retrace our steps and see if I can find Tyler. Riley: Yeah, I'll go with you. Keeper: No. Kendall and I will continue to search for Tyler. You must work together to find the e-tracer before Sledge can locate the gold Energem. Shelby: You're right. We need to work as a team. Let's get moving.
(Tyler finally comes to. He knows he needs to get back to Amber Beach, and quickly.)
(As the Dino Cycle drives towards him, Tyler morphs.)
(Back in town, at the city complex...)
Shelby: This is where Kendall said she last detected an alien signal. Ace: I thought Riley was the last one to find Alien DNA? Chase: It's a big area. We need to keep looking. Shelby: Yeah. Koda: Be careful. Riley: Let's go.
(Fury watches from nearby, along with Duplicon.)
Fury: Fools! We'll wait for the Red Ranger, then spring our trap. Duplicon: Wait, Poisandra has the tracking device, and she says we attack now!
(Duplicon turns Vivix into fake Rangers again.)
Duplicon: My clone rangers will have them fighting themselves! Fury: I hate those ranger colors! Duplicon: Now, destroy the Power Rangers! Fury: Disgusting.
(Fury walks off.)
Fury: So Poisandra's stolen their tracking device.
(In anger, Fury destroys a statue.)
Fury: I've got to have my own prize to show Sledge. Wait. The Red Ranger. Yes! He's just the trophy I need.
(The Rangers regroup.)
Chase: I've got nothing. Shelby: Koda, did you see anything from that tree? Koda: Just very angry squirrel. Riley: Uh, hey. Isn't that us?
(A group of fake Rangers are charging at the real ones.)
Chase: Whoa. I look pretty sweet. Ace: Seems more like a bad reflection on us. Shelby: Of course. Clone rangers. Chase: Right. Shelby: That must be how they fooled Tyler. JC: Sounds like an obvious conclusion.
(More Vivix appear from behind, and a battle begins.)
Chase: You guys should take some acting classes, 'cause you're not fooling me.
(With the fake Rangers mixed in among the Vivix, it’s hard to tell which Rangers are real and which ones are fake.)
Riley: Sorry, Shelby.
(But that wasn’t the real Shelby, as "she" attacks Riley.)
Riley: Hey! Chase: You may look like us, but you're not as smart.
(Chase proves he's a hotshot, first blasting the Vivix, and then, dispatching the fake Rangers.)
Chase: Oh, yeah! Shelby: Chase? How did you know who was who? Chase: Ah, I slipped these into your belts.
(Chase points. All the real Rangers have flowers in their belts.)
Shelby: You're so clever. Riley: Nice one. Ace: Looks like you do have some good moves off your board. Koda: Now we show what real rangers can do. Shelby: Right, let's finish these imposters. All: Dino steel, armor on! Chase: You can fake the look... Shelby: but... Riley: ...can't... Koda: fake... Chase: ...the skills...
(The Rangers group the fakes together. They turn back into Vivix.)
All: ...of real rangers!
(The Vivix are destroyed. Elsewhere, Wrench and Curio have the e-tracer.)
Wrench: Let's see now. Oh, oh! Curio: Mine! Wrench: You're not smart enough to be touching this machine. Curio: You don't know how smart I am. Wrench: Of course I do. I built your head from a seat cushion. Poisandra: Hurry up, Tin Man, before those party-crashing Rangers spoil my plan. Wrench: Have a heart. This thing didn't come with an instruction manual.
(Tyler finally makes it back into the city, and makes contact with Kendall.)
Kendall (v/o): Tyler, what happened to you? Are you okay? Tyler: Long story, but I'm fine. Listen, Poisandra stole the e-tracer. They fooled me. Kendall (v/o): With clone rangers, we know. The others are fighting them now. I'm sending you the coordinates. Tyler: Got 'em. Tell them I'm almost there.
(Suddenly, Tyler comes under attack.)
Tyler: Ah, whoa! Who is that?
(Tyler is knocked off his bike and forced to power down. Fury charges at him.)
Fury: Look what the cat caught! Tyler: You haven't caught me yet.
(Tyler dodges Fury's attack.)
Tyler: Too slow! Fury: Hold still!
(Tyler keeps dodging Fury's attacks.)
Fury: You're mine!
Duplicon: All my clones are gone! Chase: Nothing left but the originals. Duplicon: So I'll destroy them!
(Duplicon fires at the Rangers.)
Koda: Stego shield!
(Koda blocks the blasts.)
Koda: It may not be strong enough.
(Nearby, Tyler and Fury's battle continues.)
Fury: You're no match for me, Red Ranger! Tyler: Don't be so sure!
(Fury manages to knock Tyler down, and in the process, knock off the bracelet Tyler wears, one that belonged to his father.)
Fury: What's that?
(Fury picks up the bracelet.)
Fury: Well, well, well. This brings back memories. Tyler: Then you did know my dad. Fury: I should have known you were his son, with those pathetic fighting skills. You're as weak as he was.
(Tyler attacks, disarming Fury, and forcing him back against a car.)
Tyler: Did you say my father is weak? What do you know about him? Fury: I'll never tell you.
Duplicon: So weak without your leader. Let's end this!
(Tyler finally arrives.)
Tyler: Hold on, guys! Duplicon: Back off, Red! Tyler: You know what to do. Koda: Tyler! Chase: All right! Tyler: Dino charger, ready! Weapons, combine! Morpher: Dino spike charger, engage! Rangers: Red Ranger, launch! Tyler: Dino spike! Final strike!
(Tyler slams the Dino Spike into Duplicon.)
Tyler: Copy that!
Rangers: Now, that's teamwork. Shelby: Tyler!
(Shelby hugs Tyler.)
Ace (thinking): I wish Kendall would hug me. Chase: Great timing. Koda: We worry. Riley: No one splits us up. Tyler: We've got to stop Poisandra from tracking down the gold Energem or it’s Ptera Zord. Riley: There she is!
(Poisandra, Wrench and Curio are on a nearby catwalk.)
Poisandra: Well done, Wrench. Tyler: Stop her!
Sledge: Poisandra's in trouble! Fire the magna beam!
(A Vivix fires the Magna Beam, and Duplicon is back.)
Duplicon: I can clone giants now! Vivix, rise! Koda: Look out!
(Dozens of Vivix appear, merging into a Vivizord.)
Duplicon: You rangers want me?
(Duplicon transforms the Vivizord, but not into a Ranger.)
Duplicon: You'll have to go through a giant Fury first! Fury: A clone of me? Infuriating! I'm one of a kind!
(The giant Fury tries to finish off the Rangers with his sword, but they scatter. the T-Rex Zord arrives.)
(Duplicon attaches a suction cup to the Megazord. The giant Fury slashes the Megazord from behind.)
Duplicon: Take that! Tyler: They're attacking from both sides.
(The communicator beeps.)
Tyler: Go ahead, Kendall. Kendall (v/o): Activate Dino Charger number 17. It will release the toxic gases of the dinos. Shelby: Did she just say what I think she said? Riley: Toxic gases? Koda: You mean... fart gas? Kendall (v/o): You could call it that. Chase: Man, you think of everything. Tyler: Hey, let's try it. Dino gas charger, ready!
(The Dino Charger is used, and a cloud of gas hits the fake Fury in the face.)
Ace: Talk about taking the low road.
(Another cloud of gas hits Duplicon.)
Duplicon: Aah! My eyes! It's stinging my eyes! Chase: That's one nasty move. Koda: Oh! It smelled very bad. Tyler: All right! Let's finish it. Koda: Ugh. Please finish faster. Shelby: We need the hammer of the Ankylo Zord to crush these fakes. Dino charger, ready! Summon Ankylo Zord! Morpher: Ankylo charger, engage. Ankylo Zord, combine! Dino charge Megazord, tri-Ankylo formation. Ready! Rangers: Ankylo Zord, hammer punch!
(One hit from the hammer turns the fake Fury back into a Vivizord.)
(The drill attack destroys the Vivizord, Now, it's Duplicon's turn.)
Rangers: Ankylo Zord! Final hammer punch! Duplicon: I should have made a copy of me!
(Duplicon is finished off.)
Tyler: Monster extinct.
(On the catwalk...)
Poisandra: Hurry, Wrench, hurry! Wrench: It's working! It's honing in on the gold Energem’s Ptera zord. Poisandra: Hooray for me! Come on, let's go get it.
(Wrench is knocked down, by blasts from Fury.)
Fury: Yes! There it is. Like fruit for the picking. Poisandra: Fury! You rotten apple. Fury: Congratulations on finding the device. Too bad you couldn't keep your cotton-candy hands on it. Poisandra: Oh, you furry thief! You know Sledge will destroy you for this! Fury: Wrong! With these coordinates, I know exactly where to find the Ptera zord. Sledge will love me for this. Curio: Oh, no!
Koda: Oh, Fury is leaving with e-tracer. Riley: We can't let him take it. Tyler: Chase, you're the only one capable of hitting it from this distance. Chase: Got it.
(Chase readies his Morpher.)
Shelby: But my e-tracer! Tyler: Sorry, Shelby. If Sledge gets it, he could find all the lost Energems.
(Chase fires, causing Fury to drop the e-tracer, rendering it useless.)
Fury: No! Tyler: Nice job, hot shot. Fury: Wait.
(Fury spots something in the wreckage.)
Fury: Ha ha ha! Yes! Tyler: What is he doing?
(What Fury found is the Dino Charger that was powering the e-tracer.)
Fury: You didn't destroy it all, Rangers. With this, I will control the Ptera zord! Tyler: No! Chase: Oh, man!
(Later, at the lab...)
Shelby: The e-tracer may have given Fury the location of the Ptera zord. And he also got the terra charger. Kendall: Even if he finds the zord, that charger shouldn't have enough power left to activate its battle mode. And they don't have the technology to charge it. Ace: At least that’s one thing to out advantage. Tyler: I should have known those clone rangers were fakes. There's nobody like you guys. Keeper: The e-tracer was destroyed, but you worked as a team. If you had not, then it would now be in Sledge's hands. Chase: Keeper's right. We're united. Sledge, Fury, Poisandra-- they are divided. Riley: That's why we'll win, because of our teamwork. I mean, maybe not today, but soon. Ace (imitating Humphrey Bogart): Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but soon, and for the rest of your life. Shelby (to Tyler): I have something of yours.
(Shelby holds up a familiar item.)
Tyler: You found my dad's bracelet. Thanks. Shelby: No problem. Tyler: When I was fighting Fury today, he suddenly froze up as if he lost control. I swear, it looked like something was inside him trying to-- to break free. Chase: Maybe it's his fun side trying to get out, eh? Ace: If he even has a fun side. Koda: Whatever it is, we take it on together. Shelby: That's right, Koda.
Wrench: Well, that's odd, it's dead! Poisandra: Fury is a failure again.
Fury: You called me, Master Sledge? Sledge: Poisandra tells me that she had the Rangers in a Gem Tracker, but you took it from her. Fury: That's right, I was bringing it back here. And then that blasted hotshot blew it up! Sledge: So, it's your fault again, is it, Fury? Fury: Poisandra is inexperienced. I had to take control of the situation! And now I know where the Ptera Zord is. And with the Ptera Charger, I can control it. Wrench: Wrong, the Ptera Charger you got is dead. You couldn't run a vacuum cleaner with it let alone a Zord! Fury: I can recharge it. Wrench: Wrong again. Only the Gold Energem can recharge it. Poisandra: But we can't find the Energem because you destroyed the tracker! Sledge: I'm through with you, Fury. Give that to me.
(Sledge takes the Ptera Charger.)
Sledge: Get off my ship, now! Fury: But, Master Sledge, I have an idea!
(Sledge fires a blast at Fury.)
Poisandra: See Kitty run!
(Wrench goes elsewhere in the ship, taking the Ptera Charger with him. He's playing an alien chess-like game, with a monster called Puzzler.)
Wrench: Okay, Puzzler, now where were we? Puzzler: I was about to say checkmate! Wrench: I lost again. Puzzler: Ha! I truly am the best.
(Fury, who had not yet left the ship arrives, and sees the Ptera Charger.)
Fury: Ah, there it is! Wrench: Huh? Hey, give me that. Fury: Enough playing around. Puzzler, come with us! (to Wrench) You're going to help me charge this thing! The Ptera Zord will be mine!
(Down in the lab, Riley is working on a contraption of some sort.)
Riley (thinking): The length of an arc is the circumference of a circle.
(Nearby, the others are looking at the remains of the e-tracer.)
Shelby: Our beautiful E Tracer up in smoke. Ace: Chin up, Shelb. You and Miss Morgan made one, surely you can make another.
(Koda’s stomach growls.)
Koda: Uh, sorry, I... very hungry. Kendall: Don't worry, Koda, I sent Chase to get pizza. Ace: Just because our base is underground doesn’t mean we have to eat like four turtles. Shelby: Ace! Ace: Joking. You know me, I love pizza as much as the next guy. Especially if there's mushrooms on it. Shelby: So, Fury knows where the Ptera Zord is, but will he tell Sledge? Kendall: Sledge doesn't care about the Zord unless it leads Fury to the Gold Energem. Shelby: But Fury betrayed Poisandra so Sledge can't trust him anymore. Tyler: Whoa, whoa, whoa, I am so confused. Ace: Yeah. It's like one of my mom's soap operas. Tyler: What's our next step? Koda: Maybe... we eat. Riley: I think I solved it. We need to look at the problem logically. Ace: Tell us more, Spock.
(Riley holds up three marbles.)
Riley: Sledge, Poisandra, Fury.
(Riley puts the three marbles into his contraption, each in a different location.)
Riley: Now, they each take their own paths, chasing after power, love and maybe revenge. But there's one thing that all of them need first. Shelby: The Energems. Riley: Exactly. But their only chance of getting an Energem is with a very powerful weapon like the Ptera Zord. Different paths...
(The three marbles, having taken three different routes through the contraption, all end up in one pan.)
Riley: ...one conclusion. Ace: I'd hate to play Mouse Trap with you. Or maybe you could build a better mouse trap. Tyler: So, they've got to power up the Ptera Charger. Kendall: But there's only one lab like ours with equipment strong enough to energize a Dino Charger. Ace (thinking): And only one scientist as beautiful as you. Riley: Then logically... that lab's where we start. Ace: Fascinating.
(Outside of said lab, two kids are playing chess, on a giant chessboard.)
Puzzler: Hey! What are those kids doing? How dare they touch my game. What are they doing at an abandoned lab anyway? Fury: Puzzler, get in here! Puzzler: Oh, calm down, I'm coming! Fury: You need to make sure the Rangers don't break in. Puzzler: What could possibly be of use in this old lab? Fury: No questions from you, game board. If you let anyone in here, I'll use your bones to sharpen my sword. Puzzler: Don't worry, Master Fury. No one can outsmart me. The Puzzler never loses!
(Nearby, Wrench is uncovering some dust-covered equipment.)
Wrench: This is crazy. Fury actually thinks he can energize a Dino Charger with this old medical equipment. He's gone insane.
Wrench: Fury! Fury: Wrench, hook this Dino Charger up to energize. Wrench: Master Fury, this old machine probably doesn't even work. It could blow you up. Or worse! It could blow me up. Fury: Stop your crying, metal man, and just recharge the Ptera Charger before your tears turn you to rust. Wrench: Yes, Master Fury.
(Puzzler returns to watching the chess game.)
Puzzler: What? They're still playing? Ha! Amateur move! It's not that complicated! Move the bishop! The bishop!
(One of the boys movies his knight.)
Puzzler: No, no, no! So illogical!
(Puzzler goes outside to correct the boys.)
Puzzler: Who taught you to play? Those are the worst moves I've ever seen!
(The boys scream and run in fear.)
Puzzler: What's wrong? Can't handle the truth?
(The two boys run in front of Chase, causing him to drop the pizzas.)
Chase: Hey! Thanks! Puzzler: You scaredy cats! Chase: Wait, stop!
(Chase starts attacking Puzzler.)
Puzzler: Who are you, their babysitter? Chase: You owe the Rangers a new lunch. Puzzler: You're a Ranger? Oh, geez! Chase: What are you doing here? Puzzler: If you were as smart as me, you wouldn't have to ask.
(Chase grabs one of the pawns to use as a weapon.)
Puzzler: Don't you know, pawns always lose!
(Puzzler grabs a Queen.)
Puzzler: Time to crown you. Checkmate! Now to destroy you!
(Puzzler knocks Chase onto the chessboard, when the other Rangers arrive.)
Shelby: Chase! Puzzler: Yikes! Probably more Rangers.
(Puzzler leaves, as the Rangers check on Chase.)
Koda: Chase, you okay? Chase: I'm fine. Ace: The last time I saw a chessboard this messed up, I was three. My Dad made me sit in a corner for ruining his game. Shelby: Fury must be in there with the Ptera Charger. Tyler: Let's go pay him a visit. Koda: Pizza? Chase: Sorry, bro.
(Koda's stomach growls again. Inside...)
Puzzler: One of me against eight of them? Those odds are illogical!
(The Rangers enter the building.)
Shelby: Doesn't look like anyone's been here in years. Ace: Who was the last Doctor to use this lab? Frankenstein? Shelby: I thought that was the monster. Ace: A common misconception. Frankenstein was the name of the scientist. His creation had no name. Tyler: We have to find that lab fast. Riley: Let's split up. Ace: Like your marbles? JC: Not really sure if splitting up is a good idea.. Quatra: Then, you try being leader.
(The Rangers each go a different direction.)
Puzzler: Ah, yes! Time to play a little game.
(Puzzler makes a doorway change into solid wall. Making the building a veritable maze. He also changes arrows on exit signs.)
Puzzler: Good luck finding your way out, Rangers.
(Puzzler makes more doors disappear.)
Puzzler: I love a good game!
(Puzzler goes up several floors. He sees a fire escape route map.)
Puzzler: Wait! I can change it all at once.
(Puzzler uses the map to change the entire building's floor plan.)
Puzzler: A dead-end here, a false turn there. This maze will keep the Rangers trapped forever. And to make the game more interesting, perhaps a bit of a freeze.
(Puzzler smashes a thermostat, lowering the building's temperature. Puzzler heads further upstairs, just before Riley arrives. He checks a window, but it's bricked over.)
Riley: Huh, that's odd.
(Riley looks at the changed floor plan.)
Riley: That doesn't make any sense.
Tyler: Shelby, Chase?
(Tyler goes in one door, but it opens up further down the hall.)
Tyler: Same hallway.
(Elsewhere, Shelby is on a particularly off stairway. One that just keeps looping around.)
Shelby: Third floor again? No way.
(Chase opens a door, only to find it leads outside, but not on the ground, and not to a balcony.)
Chase: Whoa! Whoa!
(Koda enters a room, with a vending machine. He's still hungry, but sees something inside.)
(Koda shakes the machine, and tries to reach inside, but can’t get the cookie. And worse, he has no money.)
(Ace is lost in a hall way.)
Ace: I hate mazes. This is why I don’t play Pac-Man.
(Jean-Claude is in a similar situation as Ace.)
JC: I knew splitting up was a bad idea. I think I'll just stay put for now.
(Riley comes back down some stairs.)
Riley: It's freezing in here. Wait a second, I've been here before. I was just here.
(Riley looks at the floor plan again.)
Riley: Is this some kind of a looping maze? Come on, think outside of the box, come on.
(Riley spots an air vent.)
Riley: Think outside the box, yes, that's it.
(Riley opens the vent and looks into the duct work. It's definitely large enough far him to crawl through.)
Riley (thinking): The sum of the three angles of any triangle will always equal 180 degrees. (into communicator) Guys, can you hear me?
(Thankfully, the communicators still work.)
Riley (v/o): Guys? Tyler, Shelby? Tyler: I'm here, but I have no idea where, where here is. It's so cold. Shelby: I keep running up the same stairway. Trying to keep warm. Chase: I'm stuck in the loop, too. Koda: I still hungry. Ace: The only thing that could make this maze any worse is being chased by ghosts and no power pellets left. JC: I feel like I'm in one of the hallways on Scooby Doo.
(Back in the lab...)
Wrench: But it's too much! Fury: Do it!
(Wrench starts to energize the Ptera Charger, using fury. The glow that Tyler saw starts to emerge again.)
Wrench: What in the world?
(Back at the air vent.)
Riley: Listen, I found a way out. You need to-- (static) Guys? Guys? Tyler, Shelby? Koda, Chase? Ace, JC, Quatra?
(Not getting an answer, Riley climbs into the duct work and starts crawling.)
Riley: Come on.
(Riley keeps crawling. He can hear Fury screaming. In the lab...)
Wrench: I can't believe its working. The Ptera Charger is gaining power. It's almost full!
(Riley watches through the vent in the lab.)
Fury: I can't control it much longer! Wrench: Just a little bit more. Riley (silently): That must be what Tyler saw. Fury: Turn it off!
(Wrench turns off the machine. The glow recedes into Fury.)
Wrench: Oh, oh, it worked! Riley: The Ptera Charger. Fury: Give me the Charger! Wrench: What just happened?
(Fury leaves. Elsewhere, Koda is reaching under the vending machine. He must have spotted some money.)
Koda: Oh, come here.
(Up on the roof, Puzzler is relaxing.)
Puzzler: Who said life isn't all fun and games?
Fury: I told you to guard the building! Puzzler: Way ahead of you, boss. I already caught the Rangers in my never-ending maze.
(Riley has also made it to the roof.)
Fury: Good work. Once I get the Ptera Zord, I'll have it and the Rangers! Sledge will beg me to come back. Finally, he'll understand that I should be his most trusted general.
(Riley's communicator sounds.)
Kendall (v/o): Riley, what's going on? I haven't been able to contact any of the other Rangers. Riley: Okay, I found the Ptera Charger, but Fury has it. And it's full of power. Kendall (v/o): You've got to get that Charger. Riley: But the others are trapped, I have to-- Kendall (v/o): Riley, you may not get another chance. You said it yourself, we've got to do what's logical. And right now, that means stopping Fury. Fury: Time for me to go get the Ptera Zord. Kendall (v/o): Riley?
(Riley has to hide, as Fury heads his direction.)
Fury: Don't let those Rangers out! Kendall (v/o): Riley!
(Riley starts to follow Fury, but stops.)
Riley: I can't leave my friends.
(Shelby is still on the endless loop of stairs.)
Shelby: (panting) I gotta keep... warm.
(Chase is sitting down in a hall, to avoid getting lost any further.)
(Tyler, JC and Ace keep walking in their respective hallways.)
Ace (thinking): I hope this isn’t the end. I can’t even contact Kendall, to let her know how I feel.
(Elsewhere, Koda finally reaches the coin.)
(Koda puts the coin in the vending machine. The cookie starts to fall, but stops.)
(Up on the roof, Puzzler soon finds himself at the business end of a Dino Saber.)
Puzzler: Huh? Riley: Let my friends go or you're history. Puzzler: Ha! That would be illogical. If you destroy me, your friends will be ice cubes. Perhaps we can solve this. I challenge you to a game. If you win, your friends go free. But if I win, I get your Energem. Riley: Challenge accepted.
(Outside of Amber Beach...)
Fury: That heart-shaped freak Poisandra is in for a surprise when I show up in the Ptera Zord.
(Back on the roof, Puzzler is challenging Riley to the same game he played with Wrench.)
Puzzler: You are clearly no match for my superior intellect. Riley (sarcastic): Yeah, I can see I'm in way over my head.
(Riley makes a move, capturing one of Puzzler's pieces.)
Puzzler: Oh, hey, how'd I miss that? Maybe I underestimated your ability, Green Ranger.
(Riley notices the air vents on the roof. While Puzzler is distracted by the game, Riley throws several marbles down the vents.)
Puzzler: From now on, I will stay several moves ahead of you. With my superior intellect, there is no way you should ever beat me. Ha! Look at that, your pieces are wide open. Ha! Amateur.
(Riley makes another movie.)
Puzzler: Another illogical move. Ha ha!
(But Riley's move to allow him to throw another marble down the vent. One that lands near Chase.)
Chase: Riley, you beauty.
(Shelby is literally crawling up the stairs, when the marble stops in front of her.)
Shelby: Riley's marble.
(She sees the vent the marble came out of.)
Shelby: Oh! Riley!
(Tyler is laying on the floor. He roles to dodge a falling icicle, when he sees a marble.)
(Koda is reaching into the vending machine, hoping the cookie will fall, when the marble hits his leg.)
(Koda forgets his hunger, and climbs into the vent. Koda then looks on the ground, there had been a cookie already out of the vending machine.)
Koda: No way.
(Ace is trying to splinter a door, trying to make kindling to start a fire, when he gets hit by a marble.)
Ace: This door wasn’t breaking anyway.
(JC is just leaning against the wall of his hallway, when a marble comes out of a nearby vent and rolls towards him.)
JC: I had a feeling if I waited long enough, there'd be a hint out of here.
(Up on the roof...)
Puzzler: Ha, I win. Now give me your Energem. Riley: Oh, I don't think so. You see, the game wasn't chess. Rangers: Surprise. Riley: The game was to escape the maze. Puzzler: Inconceivable. Ace: Don’t get me started quoting The Princess Bride, I could do that all day. It would be a bigger blunder than getting into a land way in Asia or going in against a Sicilian when death is on the line. Riley: Oh, and that reminds me.
(Riley knocks Puzzler's last piece off the board.)
Riley: Checkmate. Puzzler: What? But how? Riley: Dino Chargers. Rangers: Ready! Energize! Ha! Unleash the power. Puzzler: I'm done playing games. I'm going to destroy you! Check out my games pieces, Rangers.
(A group of Vivix appear.)
JC: Pretty sure those aren't game pieces. Tyler: It's gonna take a lot more than that. Tyrannosaurus Rex. Power Ranger Red. Chase: Power Ranger Black. Koda: Power Ranger Blue. Riley: Power Ranger Green. Shelby: Power Ranger Pink. JC: Power Ranger Brown. Ace: Power Ranger Diamond. Quatra: Power Ranger Rainbow. Rangers: Dinosaur might, ready to fight! Tyler: Power Rangers. Rangers: Dino Charge! Tyler: It's about to get wild.
(Out in the forest...)
Fury: These are the coordinates from the Rangers' E Tracer. Time to show the world how furious I can be! Summon Ptera Zord!
(The Ptera Zord emerges from a volcano.)
Fury: I've done it!
(Back in the city, the Rangers are having an easy time taking care of the Vivix.)
Chase: You are right, pawns do always lose. Shelby: If you like games, you'll get a kick out of this.
(Shelby kicks a Vivix.)
Riley: What do you think, guys? Are these monsters getting easier to fight or is it just me? Ace: You know what they say. Practice makes perfect. And we've had a lot of practice with these guys. Practice, by the way, is also how you get to Carnegie Hall. Puzzler: Easier? He doesn't understand the rules. Koda: Riley, you make monster angrier. Koda: Dino Morpher, blast! Puzzler: Aah! That hurt! Chase: Great shooting, Koda. Ace: Looks like Chase isn’t the only hot shot around here anymore. Koda: Guys, I'm very hungry. Puzzler: You'll have to do better than that if you're gonna win this game. Koda: Tyler, combine powers. Tyler: Right. Time for this game to be over. Finish him, Koda.
(Koda fires, destroying Puzzler. Suddenly, the skies grow black.)
Tyler: Oh, no. Shelby: The Ptera Zord. Fury must have control of it. Koda: But we cannot hurt our friend. Tyler: We don't have a choice. We have to fight it. Summon Zords! Morpher: Zords combine! Dino Charge Megazord, Para-Raptor formation! Ready. Tyler: Here we go.
(The Ptera Zord shoots lightning at the Megazord. Up in orbit...)
Sledge: Fury has the Ptera Zord. Now's our chance to destroy the Rangers. Mega Beam!
(The Magna Beam is fired, bringing back Puzzler.)
Puzzler: I'm at the top of my game! Time to make my move.
(Puzzler attacks the Megazord up close while the Ptera Zord continues to blast it.)
Puzzler: We're playing to win!
(In the Megazord...)
Koda: Who do we fight? Tyler: Let's deal with this one problem at a time. Dino Charge Megazord, final attack. Rangers: Para Zord Fireball Finish! Puzzler: Game over!
(The fireball sends Puzzler skyward, right towards the Ptera Zord.)
(The Ptera Zord blast Puzzler, finishing him off.)
Tyler: The Ptera Zord must've thought it was being attacked.
(The Ptera Zord ejects the Ptera Charger, and leaves.)
Fury: That didn't go as planned. But once I recharge this, the Ptera Zord and I will be back to destroy the Rangers!
(Back on Sledge's ship...)
Poisandra: Now Sledge-ums, let's not make any rash decisions. Remember how often Fury failed before? Sledge: Maybe. Poisandra: And he just destroyed Puzzler. Terrible, right? Sledge: But Fury has control of the Ptera Zord. That's what I care about.
(Fury arrives in a space pod.)
Fury: Master Sledge, I have returned. Sledge: I knew you'd come in handy one day. Fury: A cat always lands on its feet. Sledge: So, tell me about the Ptera Zord. How do we finally destroy the Rangers with it? Fury: I have a plan, Master Sledge. Poisandra: Sometimes it's like I'm invisible in this place.
(A door closes right in Poisandra's face.)
Poisandra: Oh! See what I mean?! Open up!
(The door opens.)
(Back in the lab...)
Riley: I was so close to getting the Ptera Charger. I wish I could've stopped Fury. Keeper: Going after Fury would have been the logical decision, but-- Kendall: It wouldn't have been the best decision. Koda: You save your tribe, act with heart. Always good. Chase: I agree, especially since I'm in that tribe. Ace: I guess that means, the tribe has spoken.
(Koda starts hugging riley, as Tyler and Shelby arrive with pizzas.)
Shelby: Anybody hungry? Koda: Finally food! Shelby: Leave some for us, Koda. Tyler (to Riley): What's up? Riley: I'm good. When I was in the duct, I saw Fury, that energy thing that you saw trying to get out of him, I saw it, too. Tyler: You saw it? What do you think it is? Riley: I have no idea. But it looked like Fury was draining its energy to power the Ptera Charger. Tyler: Whatever it is, we have to free it or stop it, before Fury can use that energy to destroy us.
(At the museum, a new exhibit is about to open. Surprisingly, for a dinosaur museum, it has very little to do with dinosaurs.)
Riley: Pretty sweet. "The Treasures of Zandar."
(Down in the lab, Kendall has fallen asleep. Tyler, Koda and Ace arrive.)
Ace (thinking): She's beautiful when she's asleep. And when she's awake. Tyler: Uh, Kendall?
(Kendall wakes up.)
Kendall: It's Miss Morgan. Koda: Did you work all night? Kendall: Destroying monsters is one thing but with Fury in charge of the Ptera Zord, you need a stronger battle mode in your Megazords. Ace: Maybe if Quatra, JC and I had found our Zords yet, that would help.
(Kendall walks over to a shelf, with some new Dino Chargers.)
Kendall: Which is why I developed these. They activate Dino Drive Mode. Tyler: Awesome! Fury won't know what hit him. Kendall: Let's hope so. They haven't been tested yet but if they work, they'll double your power. But remember, only in the Megazord. Koda: Dino Drive Mode. Oh, that's great, Kendall.
(Koda pats Kendall on the back, as gentle as he can, which, being a caveman, is not as gentle as most people would. Kendall's communicator chirps.)
Chase (v/o): The Zandar Treasures have arrived. Tyler: We're on our way up to help unload. Ace: And then I need to help set up the new Zandar related merchandise in the gift shop. Kendall: Not me. Shelby needs me for something "urgent “in the cafe. Koda: Oh, must be very important.
(Soon, in the cafe...)
Shelby: Come on, Kendall. I mean, Miss Morgan.
(Shelby is trying to help out another friend of her's, Julian, a talented artist.)
Shelby: Julian's work is great. Look at this sketch, it's beautiful.
(Shelby shows Kendall one of Julian's sketches.)
Kendall: I completely agree. Julian, your work is terrific. But this is a history museum, not an art gallery. I'm sorry. Julian: Thanks for trying. But... maybe it's just not meant to be, you know? Shelby: Julian-- Julian: See ya.
(Shelby heads out to the loading dock.)
Tyler: So, does Julian get a show? Shelby: No. That guy lives and breathes for his art. He just needs a break. Ace: I'll call my cousin in Gray Lake. She used to date the mayor's nephew. She might be able to help him out.
(Chase finds a sign for the new exhibit.)
Chase: Hey, look at this. Riley: Wow, this exhibit has the Stone of Zandar! Shelby: What's that? Ace: Sounds like something that would look great in my collection. JC: Not all stones are actually stones, though. Riley: Well, if you believe the legend, it all started when the knight, Sir Ivan, found the stone. Chase: Knights are so awesome. Ace: You’ve never had to face a horde of them with only a healer, an archer and no tank on your team in an MMO. Koda: So, what happened? Riley: Well, supposedly... hundreds of years ago, the young Prince of Zandar was being escorted by Sir Ivan.
(Flashback to Zandar.)
Prince: I'm thirsty, fetch me some water.
Shelby: Ugh, seriously? Just because he's a prince, he can't say "please"? Ace: So much for royal manners. Riley: Uh... that's not the point of the story.
Riley: Anyway... while they were stopped to get some water, the knight noticed something shimmering in the creek. He reached out, only to find...
(The story is interrupted by a loud screeching sound.)
Koda: Sounds like... big eagle.
(The Rangers rush to see what it is, not noticing one of the crates glowing.)
Shelby: That's no eagle. Riley: That's the Ptera Zord. Chase: We need some firepower.
(Koda agrees with Chase.)
Koda and Chase: Dino Charger, ready! Koda: Summon Stego Zord! Chase: Summon Para Zord! Morphers: Stego Charger, engage! Para Charger, engage!
(The Ptera Zord opens fire.)
Chase: Koda, watch your Zord! Para Zord, blast! Koda: Thank you, hotshot. Chase: Oh, not so fast, he's coming back.
(The Ptera Zord transforms, into a robot mode, wearing a cape.)
Chase: Whoa! Ace: No capes. Haven’t you ever seen The Incredibles? JC: Not sure if that rule applies to giant robots. Ace: Good point. Fury: Recognize this? I have my own Megazord now, Rangers! Tyler: It changed! Riley: That's the Ptera Charge Megazord. Shelby: I sure wish it was on our side. Fury: Deal with this, Rangers!
(The three Zords combine. The Rangers enter the cockpit.)
Tyler: I don't like battling our own Zords.
(The communicator chirps.)
Kendall (v/o): Tyler, we weren't expecting Fury to control a Megazord. It's dangerous but you have to try your new Dino Drive Mode. Tyler: Understood, we're willing to take the risk. Shelby & Riley: Right. Chase & Koda: Yeah. Rangers: Dino Chargers, ready! Dino Drive, activate!
(An extra layer of armor appears on the Rangers costumes.)
Shelby: I can feel the charge of strength. Tyler: Awesome! Koda: Kendall, you very smart. Kendall (v/o): I just hope it gives you the edge you need. Chase: Oh, yeah, let's go!
(The attacks do some damage, but not enough to cause Fury to retreat.)
Fury: Ptera Zord Saber Slash!
(The Dino Charge Megazord is rocked.)
Tyler: He's so strong! Fury: I told you I'd get your Energems someday. Today is that day. Shelby: Our defenses are down! Riley: We can't take another hit! Tyler: Koda, throw your shield! Koda: Stego Shield, block! Fury: Ptera Lightning Bolt!
(The shield holds off the lightning attack, but it won’t hold for long.)
Koda: Cannot hold much longer! Kendall (v/o): Sensors indicate Fury's Megazord is running low on power. Tyler: That's our only hope. We need you now, hotshot. Chase: Para Zord, blast!
(The ParaZord fires, as the shield moves out of the way. Fury tries to block the blasts, but...)
Fury: I'm almost out of energy! I'll recharge and then return to finish you!
(The Ptera Zord retreats.)
Tyler: Good job, guys. But that cat has more lives. He'll be back.
(That night, the Rangers are unloading the items for the Zandar exhibit.)
Tyler: Our Dino Chargers last so long. Why would Fury have run out of power? Riley: Well, the ghost-like being Fury's getting his energy from could be getting weak. Kendall: But even a small amount of power in the Ptera Charger can still do a lot of damage. Ace: So can my mom on Black Friday. Shelby: Look at this tiara. It's worth a small fortune. Do you know how many people that could feed? But some selfish princess keeps it in a box just in case she wants to wear it to the grand ball. What a waste. Ace: Grand ball? You've been reading too many fairy tales, Shelb. Chase: Bottom line, gotta get that Ptera Charger back. Kendall: Careful with the Stone of Zandar.
(The Rangers lift another crate, and it glows.)
Tyler: What in the world?
(As they set the crate back down, the Energems glow.)
Koda: Our Energems. What going on? Tyler: No idea. But it looks like it stopped. Shelby: Try lifting it again.
(As the Rangers reach for the crate, the top bursts open.)
Riley: Everyone okay? Chase: Yeah. Shelby: Yup. Ace: Except for my wits, which I’ve been frightened out of.
(Inside the crate is the Stone of Zandar, and the Rangers can clearly see it.)
Shelby: The Stone of Zandar is... Riley: The Gold Energem. JC: Not sure if that is a shock, or if it was obvious. I mean, come on, guys. The stone was found by a knight 800 years ago, who was attacked by an unknown monster. My bet is that the "stone" bonded to the knight, but before he could use it, something happened to him, and the "stone" was then lost and the prince found it.
(Later, down in the lab...)
Kendall: This is amazing. It's authentic. Keeper: Welcome back, my old friend. The Gold Energem is bonded to the spirit of the Pterodactyl. Chase: How did it end up in the treasures of Zandar? Shelby: Zandar's in Europe. Ace: I thought that was the planet from Guardians of the Galaxy. Shelby (ignoring Ace): Lots of Pterodactyl fossils have been found there. Kendall: If Fury were to get a hold of this, he would have unlimited power over the Ptera Zord. Koda: Then... we hide it. Tyler: Or... We could tell Fury exactly where it is.
(Up on Sledge's ship...)
Wrench: The Ptera Charger is connected. Fury: Start charging it, you tin can! Fury: Soon I'll have the power to destroy the Rangers!
(Unfortunately, for Fury, the Dino Charger isn’t being charged.)
Fury: Why isn't it charging? Wench: That thing inside you! It's blocking the energy transfer! Fury: Enough! Wrench, give me the Ptera Charger. Wrench: But it's not even half full. Fury: Hopefully, it's enough. I'll defeat the Rangers without your help, you worthless wind-up toy!
(Fury leaves Wrench's workshop.)
Fury: This charger better work. If I can't control the Ptera Zord, I'm no use to Sledge.
(On the bridge, Poisandra, Curio and some Vivix gather around a TV.))
Poisandra: Come on, everyone! It's the latest "Glitz World" episode.
Fury: What's going on here? You're watching that gossip TV show again! Get back to work! All of you!
(The Vivix scatter.)
Poisandra: Oh, you fur ball! Wait till Sledge hears about this, hmpf! Curio: Mean kitty! Announcer (v/o): The Stone of Zandar exhibit has its grand opening tomorrow. It's rumored the Zandarian Prince >will be making a rare public appearance with his new bride. Fury: What?! Announcer (v/o): And she will be wearing the stone itself. Fury: A princess has the Gold Energem?
(Back in the lab...)
Koda: Yes! Our fake story make it to TV. Riley: Yeah, good job, Kendall. Let's just hope Poisandra catches it. Chase: I heard her say to Curio that she never misses an episode. Ace: There's better things on than that garbage. Like Jeopardy. Shelby (v/o): This is the worst! Riley: And now for phase two of the plan.
(Shelby enters, dressed as a Princess.)
Chase: Wow. You look... Koda: Like cotton candy. Shelby: I can barely breathe. Ace: Could be worse. You could also be wearing a corset. Shelby: And my feet feel like they're getting chomped on by alligators. No way, unh-unh. I refuse to pretend to be a whiny, spoiled princess. Chase: Well, it sounds like you don't have to pretend.
(Shelby throws a shoe at Chase. He catches it.)
Koda: Uh, but Shelby, you have to. Riley: Yeah, how else are we gonna lure Fury in close enough to get the Ptera Charger back? Kendall: That's fine, I'll do it. Shelby: Thank you. Ace (thinking): Kendall? In that dress? This could be my best day since becoming a Ranger.
(Tyler enters, dressed as the Prince.)
Shelby: Huh? Tyler: Awesome, isn't it? Shelby: Maybe I should play the princess. Just so we can get the Ptera Charger back. Ace: Quick change of heart, there, Shelb. Like that card game used to play, when I was younger. Keeper: You know, Shelby, a princess does not have to be spoiled. Her royal position can sometimes allow her to do good deeds. Ace: Keeper's right. My Mom talked about how Princess Diana was always doing charity work, especially with getting rid of land mines. Chase: Ladies and gentlemen, presenting the prince and princess of Zandar. JC: Let's just hope this charade works.
(Later, the Rangers are ready for their trap. Riley and Ace are disguised as bodyguards. Chase and JC are dressed as a tourist. Koda is hiding in a tree.)
Riley: Anything? Chase: All clear. Koda: No Fury. JC: Don't see Fury either. Ace: Quieter than my room in a power outage. I could use this Get-up at the next Halloween party, I look like an MiB. Man: Prince of Zandar, huh? Never even heard of Zandar.
(A limo arrives. Among those in the crowd is Julian, his sketchpad at the ready. Kendall, disguised as the chauffeur, opens the door, so Tyler and Shelby can get out.)
Woman: Oh, there he is! Oh, she is so beautiful! Shelby: Maybe I should take your arm? Tyler: Uh, okay. Man (v/o): Can we get a kiss?
(Shelby kisses Tyler on the cheek. She sees Julian.)
Shelby: Uh, excuse me for a moment.
(Shelby walks over to Julian.)
Riley: What's she doing? Chase: Don't know. Ace: I think she's remembering what Keeper told her. Shelby: This is gorgeous!
(Shelby takes Julian's sketch.)
Shelby: I must have it for the, uh, castle. Tyler: And one for the, uh, the summer palace. Shelby: Excellent idea! Thank you, kind sir, thank you. Photographer (to Julian): Hey, how about a photo? Reporter 1: Hey, what's your name? Reporter 2: What's your specialty? Reporter 3: Where did you study?
(Tyler and Shelby near the end of the red carpet, wear a podium is waiting.)
Tyler (semi-whispered): Now what do we do? Shelby (semi-whispered): I don't know. Fury should've shown up by now. Make something up. Tyler: Uh...
(Tyler steps up to the podium.)
Tyler: 'Twas 800 years ago, when the knight Sir Ivan saved Prince... Prince, uh...
(Tyler sees the sign behind him, telling the same story Riley told them earlier. Tyler points at the young Prince.)
Tyler: Him! From an evil, hideous, vile beast.
(As if on cue, Fury comes through the sign.)
Fury: Surprise! Give me the Energem!
(Fury knocks the necklace off of Shelby.)
Fury: With the Zord and now this Energem, you Rangers are finished!
Tyler: T-Rex Smash! Chase: Para Chopper Blast! Hah...! Riley: You're all green with envy. Hah! Don't flip out, that's my job! Raptor Claw! Shelby: Tricera Drill! Hah! Chase: Let's team up, mates.
(Chase, Tyler and Koda take on one of the Spikeballs.)
Spikeball: Seriously?! You're supposed to be tough? Tyler: T-Rex Smash! Hyah! Chase: Para Chopper Blast!
(The first Spikeball is damaged, but not destroyed.)
Riley: Let's take this one, Shelby! Ace: Save some for me. Riley: He's strong! Shelby: Tricera Drill! Hah! Fury: Their fake Energem made me look like a fool. Ace: So, it would be the Fool’s Gold Energem. Just, not made of iron pyrite. Fury: Destroy them! Chase: Tyler, we'll take the spike balls. You need to destroy Fury. Take my Para Chopper. Tyler: Great. We need to get the Ptera Charger. Good luck.
(Chase rejoins the others,)
Tyler: This is it, Fury! Para Chopper Blast! Hah!
(Tyler fires at Fury.)
Fury: You'll never get that Ptera Charger! The Ptera Zord is mine to control! Tyler: Don't count on it!
(Nearby, Chase and Koda keep attacking the Spikeball.)
(The two blasts hit, they seem to be equally powerful, but Tyler’s is stronger, and finally hits Fury.)
Tyler: Give me the Ptera Charger or I'll destroy you! You've got no choice, Fury!
(Fury holds up the Ptera Charger, and Tyler is about to take it, when the energy being within Fury emerges again.)
Fury: Oh, no! It's happening again! Koda: Do it, Tyler, destroy him! Shelby: Tyler, what are you waiting for?
(Tyler watches, as the being takes on a humanoid appearance.)
Tyler: Is it possible? Dad? Fury: You will not escape me!
(Fury manages to contain the energy being.)
Fury: Nice try, Red Ranger. (to Spikeball) Get me to the ship!
(Two pods take off, heading back to Sledge's ship. Later, back at the museum, Julian is on the phone.)
Julian: What'd they say? London?
(In the cafe...)
Koda: No sign of Tyler. Riley: Yeah, it's not like him to be a no-show.
(Julian enters, still on the phone.)
Julian: London? They wanna see my art in London? Yeah, okay, just hold on.
(Julian walks over to Shelby.)
Julian: Shelby, I had to come tell you. Ever since the Princess saw my sketches, I'm going to New York next week for my first show. And now London. Shelby: That is so great, Julian. You totally deserve it. Julian: Well, you always believed in me, thanks. You're a great friend.
Julian: Hello? So, about London, yeah... Shelby: Keeper was right. Being a princess is more than just wearing a tiara.
(Tyler is down in the lab, looking at the picture of himself and his father. Kendall arrives.)
Kendall: Tyler, I've been looking for you. From what I can tell, you had the chance to destroy Fury and retrieve the Ptera Charger but you didn't. Why? What happened out there? Tyler: I...
(The others arrive.)
Riley: It's okay, I wouldn't have destroyed Fury either. Not today. Koda: Me either. Chase: You made the right choice, mate. Ace: You decided with your heart, not your head. JC: Pretty sure we would've made the same decision. Shelby: It was the only choice, Tyler. Until you know for sure. Kendall: Know what for sure?
(Kendall takes off her glasses. Ace stumbles, looking for a chair.)
Tyler: That spirit, the one inside Fury. I think ten years ago he captured my dad and... he's trying to escape. That's why I didn't destroy Fury. Keeper: You followed your heart, my friend. That is never a mistake. Until whoever is locked inside of Fury is free, you cannot destroy him.
(In orbit, Sledge watches Fury's last battle with the Rangers. And he isn’t happy.)
Sledge: Fury, your Megazord ran out of power... again! Fury: Uh, I can solve that problem. Sledge: You'd better. If the Ptera Zord can't transform into a Megazord, it's worthless to me, and so are you. Fury: I'll get to work.
(Fury walks off the bridge.)
Sledge: Oh, good help is so hard to find.
(Down in Amber Beach, the Treasures of Zandar exhibit is ready to open. Kendall tells a crowd about the stone of Zandar.)
Kendall: The Stone of Zandar was discovered 800 years ago, when a young prince was being escorted by the king's knight, Sir Ivan of Zandar.
(Flashback: Zandar, 800 years earlier. Young Prince Colin rides, accompanied by Sir Ivan.)
Colin: I'm thirsty, fetch me some water. Kendall (v/o): While they were stopped for a drink, Sir Ivan discovered the gemstone in the creek.
(Sir Ivan finds the Gold Energem in the water, and holds it up.)
Colin: Give me that.
(Not wanting to disappoint his Prince, Ivan prepares to give it to him.)
Colin: It's mine. Voice: No, it's mine!
(A cloaked figure attacks, trying to take the Energem. Ivan fights him, valiantly.)
Kendall (v/o): The monster's blow knocked the gem from his hand and the prince tumbled away. What happened next, no one knows. After saving the prince, Sir Ivan and the monster mysteriously disappeared. The prince found the gemstone and named it after his country: the Stone of Zandar. It has been the most famous piece in the Zandar's royal treasure ever since. Thank you all very much. Please enjoy the exhibit.
(The crowd applauds. Outside, a motorcade, including a limo arrives. Koda watches from a tree as a number of men in suits get out, some of them carrying attaché cases.)
Koda: Who is that?
Chase: I'll be glad when this exhibit is over, so we can lock up the Stone of Zandar safe and sound at the base. Ace: Anything to keep it away from Sledge and Fury.
(Suddenly, the men from the motorcade enter. One of them appears to be in charge.)
Man: Collect the treasures. Tyler: What's going on? Ace: If this is a robbery, it's certainly a well planned one. JC: They don't look like your typical criminals. Kendall: Excuse me, I'm the museum director. Just what do you think you're doing? Man: I'm taking what belongs to me. Riley: Hey, whoa, whoa, no, that's impossible 'cause these belong to the royal family...
(Riley notices a small crest on the man's sports coat.)
Riley: Oh... Man: Starting to get the picture, are we? Allow me to introduce myself. I am Prince Philip III of Zandar, the real prince, unlike the imposters that have been masquerading around here.
(Prince Phillip holds up a magazine, with Tyler and Shelby on the cover.)
Phillip: Wait a moment.
(The Prince looks at Tyler and Shelby.)
Phillip: This is you two, isn't it? Tyler: Uh, uh... Phillip: It's a wonder anyone mistook you for a prince.
(Koda comes in and walks over to the Prince.)
Koda: We mean no... disrespect. Phillip: And what would you know about respect? Look at you-- filthy, you're shoeless. Were you born in a cave? Koda: No, born on mammoth hunt. Mother could not make it home to cave. Ace: I think Koda knows more about respect than some royalty around here.
(Koda offers the prince an apple, which he had been eating.)
Koda: Uh, want some? Phillip: A knight's bravery is what makes this stone a legend.
(Prince Phillip takes the Stone of Zandar.)
Phillip: How dare you touch it? None of you are worthy. Ace (whispered): We're worthier than you think. Seeing as the Energem didn’t glow for him, he's the one who isn’t worthy.
(The Prince and his men leave, with the treasures.)
Kendall: There they go. Shelby: We can't just let them take the Energem, can we? Ace: All it takes is Sledge or Fury finding out they have it, and boom.
(Koda spots someone watching the motorcade.)
Koda: Vivix. Ace: Wow, I’m psychic. JC: Pretty sure it was obvious. Tyler: This isn't good.
(Soon, two pods from Sledge's ship attack the motorcade. The motorcade is forced off the road.)
Guard: Come on, protect the prince!
(Unfortunately, a welcoming party is waiting, led by Poisandra, Fury, Curio and Wrench, along with some Vivix and Spikeballs.)
Poisandra: Look. They're all dressed up. Fury: Dressed for their own funerals. Attack!
(The Vivix overwhelm the Prince's unprepared guards.)
Guard: There's too many!
(Prince Phillip gets out of his limo, only to encounter Fury.)
Phillip: Good heavens! What are you? Fury: Give me the Energem. Phillip: Energem, I don't know-- Fury: Don't play stupid with me! Hand it over!
(Prince Phillip takes out the Stone of Zandar.)
(Luckily, the motorcade had an extra escort. Koda.)
(Koda starts attacking Fury, unmorphed and unarmed.)
(Koda hits Fury, then does a series of back flips.)
Fury: Don't flip out on me, caveman!
(Thankfully, the other Rangers arrive.)
Tyler: Hang on, Koda! Poisandra: Vivix, attack! Ace: Looks like the gang's all here. The Cowardly Lion... (pointing at Fury) ... the Tin Man... (Pointing a wrench) ...and the Scarecrow. (Pointing at Curio.) Which must make her Dorothy? So where's Toto? Of course, with all that pink, maybe she's more like Glinda. JC: Don't think that works. I don't see anything about her that would make her a "Good Witch". Ace: Well, that's true. If she was wearing green, she'd definitely be a Wicked Witch. And I'd be looking for a bucket of water.
(The Rangers, except for Koda, start fighting the Vivix.)
Shelby: As if ten if you wasn't enough.
(Koda is still fighting against Fury.)
Fury: I thought you were the strong one.
(Chase, being a hot shot, uses his Morpher to blast the Vivix, while Riley, ever the swordsman, uses his saber.)
Riley: Power slash!
Fury: Nothing's going to stop me getting that Energem. Koda: Koda stop you. Fury: Not a chance.
(Fury prepares a lightning attack. Koda goes for a nearby hubcap.)
Philip: What are you doing?
(Koda uses the hubcap as a shield, deflecting the attack, but sending Koda and the Prince rolling down a hill.)
Fury: You're not escaping me this time.
(Koda walks over to the Prince.)
Koda: Come, Fury after you.
(Koda helps Prince Phillip back to his feet, and takes him into the forest.)
Koda: You safe here.
(Koda sniffs the air to make sure.)
Phillip: I'm at a loss for words. After how I treated you, the insults. Why would you risk your life for me? Koda: Everyone has good on inside. Even mean prince, like you. Phillip: Well, I suppose I deserve that.
(Fury roaring can be heard.)
(Fury sends a boulder rolling towards them. Koda shoves the Prince out of the way, to stop the boulder himself. He does, but is knocked backwards. Prince Phillip reaches for the Stone of Zandar, but Fury gets to it first.)
Fury: Surprise! Finally, after 800 years. The Gold Energem is mine! Phillip: 800 years? So you're the monster that attacked Prince Colin 800 years ago.
(Indeed, Fury was the cloaked figure who attacked Prince Colin and Sir Ivan.)
Fury: Yes, that prince survived. But you'll be destroyed.
(Fury prepares a final lightning attack.)
Fury: This Energem is coming with me!
(Thankfully, the other Rangers arrive, blasting at Fury. Riley and Chase check on the Prince, while Tyler and Shelby check on Koda.)
Riley: Don't worry, we got you. Tyler: You okay? Koda: Fury got Energem. Chase: You all right, mate? Phillip: I'm a fool, but I'm fine.
(Tyler contacts Kendall, who is back in the lab.)
Tyler (v/o): Fury has the Gold Energem. Kendall: And he just summoned the Ptera Zord. If he installs the Energem into the Zord, he will have infinite energy. Koda (v/o): We stop him first. Kendall: Tyler, I've been developing a new Dino Charger that might finally give you and your Zord the edge you need against the Ptera Zord.
(Back in the forest...)
Tyler: I'm on it. You guys follow Fury, I'll catch up with you.
(Tyler heads back to the museum.)
Ace (thinking): If I had a Zord, maybe Kendall would call me back to give me a new Dino Charger. Koda (to Prince Phillip): Go back to road, to safety. Phillip: But--
(The Rangers leave. Elsewhere, Poisandra, Wrench and Curio are going through the cases from the motorcade.)
Poisandra: What do we have here? Wrench: It's the treasures from Zandar! But no Energem.
Fury: You won't find it. Poisandra: And why not? Fury: Because I've already got it. Poisandra: It's about time, fur ball. Now, let's get it to Sledge so I can start planning my wedding!
(The Rangers arrive. Prince Phillip has followed them and watches from behind some rocks.)
Shelby: Cancel the invitations. Ace: And don’t even bother booking a hall for the reception. Koda: It's morphing time-- Dino Charger. Rangers: Ready! Energize, ha! Unleash the power! Phillip: They're Power Rangers. Fury: The tide has turned, Rangers. Prepare to suffer my wrath. Ace: Id rather watch the Wrath of Khan, if it's all the same to you, fur face. Fury: Ptera Zord!
(The Ptera Zord arrives and fires lightning at the Rangers.)
Fury: Shocking, isn't it? Ace: When it comes to word play, you're no James Bond. Fury: You can't outrun the Ptera Zord forever! Riley: Wait, look.
(A bust of flame shoots past the Ptera Zord.)
Fury: What’s that?
(More blasts of flame appear.)
Chase: Over there, the blast came from the T-Rex Zord. Koda: It Tyler. Riley: Oh, yeah! Ace: That's some flame thrower. Tyler: Hey, guys!
(Tyler joins the others on the ground.)
Tyler: Great job, Rexie. Riley: That'll work. Shelby: But the Ptera Zord's gonna come back. Tyler: Don't worry, Kendall's new Dino Charger should solve that. Dino Charger, ready!
(Tyler throws the new Dino Charger into the T-Rex's mouth.)
Morpher: Dino Stretch Charger, engage!
(The new Dino Charger gives the T-Rex the ability to stretch its neck, long enough to bite the Ptera Zord in mid-flight.)
Chase: That new charger makes Rex even stronger-- whoo! Fury: No, they've taken out my Ptera Zord! Tyler: Did you really think you could beat us, Fury? With courage and might, ready to fight. Rangers: Power Rangers Dino Charge! Fury: Wipe them out! Poisandra: Ooh, I can't wait. Rangers: Dino Steel armor on.
(Sledge's forces and the Rangers begin to battle.)
Fury: I'll finish you this time, Red Ranger! Tyler: Oh, come on, Fury, you'll have to try harder than that. Fury: How about this?!
(Fury uses his sword to force Tyler backwards.)
Shelby: Riley, take the Tricera Drill for a spin. They'll never expect it from you. Riley: You got it.
(Shelby attacks more Vivix.)
Shelby: When it comes to these seaweed heads, I don't even need a weapon. Ace: No, but it does help.
(Ace opens fire.)
Ace: More fun than that old Duck Hunt game. And no annoying dog.
(Poisandra and Curio go after Riley.)
Poisandra: Stand still! Curio: Yeah, he's being so difficult. Riley: Tricera Drill!
(Riley drills underground, making the two villains think they defeated him.)
Curio: We did it! Poisandra: He's running scared.
(But Riley bursts through the ground behind them.)
Riley: Think again!
(Riley opens fire. Nearby, Koda is dealing with the Spikeballs.)
Spikeball: Hey, caveman, how do you like our clubs? Koda: They very weak. And I caveman strong!
(Koda throws the two Spikeballs into the air.)
Wrench: We meet again, hotshot. Chase: Unlucky for you. Para Chopper blast!
(Chase's blast knocks Wrench down.)
Poisandra: Get up, you pile of scrap metal! Riley: I have an idea, Koda. Let's combine our weapons. Koda: Careful, it heavy. Wrench: No, no, now what? Riley: Tricera, Raptor, Stego. Triple spike! Dino pierce!
(Riley's attack destroys a Spikeball. Nearby...)
Fury: I have you now. Tyler: No chance. Let's finish this. Fury: I'll finish you! Fury's roar! Tyler: Huh?
(Fury prepares his sword for a final attack. He sends a powerful lightning strike at Tyler. Surprisingly, Tyler avoids it.)
Tyler: It's over, Fury. Give me the Gold Energem. Fury: Never! It's mine!
(Suddenly, the Energem reacts, as the being within Fury emerges.)
Fury: No! Not now! Shelby: What's happening? Tyler: Could it be? Dad, is that you?
(The being starts to emerge more than it has before.)
Fury: You will not escape!
(But escape it does, with an explosion powerful enough to cause the Rangers to power down. The being is still glowing as it hits the ground. Tyler rushes over to it, hopeful.)
Tyler: Dad? Dad!
(But who Tyler finds is not who he was expecting. It's a man, dressed in very old clothes.)
Tyler: What? You're not my dad. Who are you? Man: I am Sir Ivan. Knight of Zandar. Chase: The Knight of Zandar? Phillip: Sir Ivan? That's impossible.
(Ivan walks towards Fury.)
Ivan: Finally, 'tis my turn to morph. Fury: That Energem's mine!
(Ivan throws the Gold Energem into the air, and summons his Morpher, wrist worn, unlike the other Morphers.)
Ivan: Gold Ptera Morpher! Unleash the power!
(Ivan morphs into a Gold Ranger.)
Ivan: Still think the stone is yours? Shelby: Wow. Koda: Whoa, Gold Ranger? Fury: Vivix, attack! Ivan: Pterodactyl Power Ranger, go! Gold Ptera Morpher, Ptera Bolt.
(Ivan easily dispatches the Vivix with blasts from his Morpher.)
Ivan: Leave these beasts to me, I have a score to settle.
(Ivan starts attacking hand to hand.)
Ivan: Why, they practically leap onto my fists!
(Ivan leaps into the air.)
Ivan: Ptera Strike!
(He appears to fly as he attacks the Vivix.)
Riley: Whoa. Chase: He can fly? Ace: I've got a flying dinosaur. Why can’t I do that? Then I could live up to my nickname. Fury: Sledge will be furious! Poisandra: Another Ranger? Curio: Get him! Ivan: Get thee back, gargoyles! Poisandra: Huh? Curio: Hey! Ivan: Summon Ptera Saber!
(A magnificent blade appears. Ivan places his Energem in it.)
(Ivan's attack gives Poisandra and Curio quite a shock.)
Poisandra: He fried my brain. Curio: Luckily, I don't have one. Wrench: Okay, you've worn out your welcome.
(Wrench strikes with his axe, only for it to be used as a conductor for Ivan's lightning.)
Wrench: You're frying my circuits. Ivan: Lightning bolt!
(Wrench is knocked down.)
Ivan: Who's next? Spikeball: My turn! Ivan: Feel of the power of the storm. Spikeball: Feel the power of this! Ivan: Lightning, final strike!
(Ivan's powerful blast of lightning destroys the Spikeball.)
Ivan: Anyone else?
(Up in orbit...)
Sledge: How dare Fury let them hurt Poisandra! Fire the Magna Beam. Destroy them all!
(The Spikeballs are revived, and enlarged.)
Spikeball: Your problems just got a lot bigger! Tyler: We'll call our Megazord. Ivan: No, this quest is mine. Riley: Wait, wait, wait, wait, stop. The Ptera Charge Megazord is evil. Ivan: Not for long.
(Ivan leaps into the Ptera Zord cockpit.)
Ivan: Ptera Charge Megazord, activate.
(Ivan places his Saber in the control column, freeing the Zord from fury's control. It sheds the black cape.)
Ivan: Your evil spell is broken! Let our duel begin. Morpher: Ptera Charge Megazord, ready. Spikeball: Time to say nighty-night, knight.
(Both Spikeballs attack the Megazord.)
Ivan: The Knight of Zandar shan't run from a battle. En garde!
(Ivan's fighting skills easily allow the Megazord to fight both Spikeballs.)
Ivan: Ptera Lightning Blitz.
(A powerful lightning blast hits the Spikeballs.)
Ivan: Ptera Lightning Slash.
(One final blow from the Megazord's twin blades destroys the Spikeballs.)
Ivan: Monster vanquished.
(Soon, Ivan is back on the ground and powers down. The other Rangers approach him.)
Shelby: Sir Ivan, hi, I'm... Shelby. Welcome to our, uh, century. Koda: You... will like it here. I show you burgers.
Riley: Prince Philip.
Koda: Why are you still here? Ivan: Sire, I am at your service.
(Ivan presents his Energem.)
Ivan: This belongs to the royal family. Phillip: Do you know me? Ivan: I know the royal blood of Zandar when I see it. I've spent my entire life faithfully protecting your family. Phillip: So you truly are Sir Ivan the Knight of Zandar. And the monster did not destroy you. Ivan: No. He captured me. For 800 long years. Only when aided by the power of that stone could I finally escape. Shelby: It isn't just a stone. It's an Energem.
(The Rangers all show their Energems.)
Riley: They have more power than you can ever imagine. Chase: Millions of years ago, thirteen Energems were lost. We've only found eight so far. Tyler: The Stone of Zandar is the ninth. Phillip: The Energem is yours to use as you will.
(Prince Phillip gives the Energem back to Ivan.)
Ivan: Trust that I will use it to make the kingdom proud.
(The royal limo arrives.)
Philip: Ah. I am humbled by your bravery and courage. Thank you. Ah, may you discover the remaining four Energems safely.
(The Prince heads to his limo.)
Shelby: Welcome to the... team.
(Ivan is walking away.)
Riley: Well, where are you going? Ivan: Where? I have been captive for 800 years. The matter's not what path I take, so long as it is the path that I have chosen.
(Ivan keeps walking. Shelby starts to chase after him.)
Chase: Give him some space. Riley: He's enjoying something he hasn't felt in a long, long time. Koda: Freedom. Ace: Sounds like me on the first day of summer vacation.
(On Sledge's ship, Fury is grabbed by Spikeballs as he enters the bridge.)
Fury: Wait, what?! I can explain! Sledge: Not only did you lose the Ptera Zord, but now there are nine Rangers with nine Energems. Bones! Poisandra: Oh, this is going to be good!
(A monster, covered in various bones, including some tusks, enters.)
Bones: I've been waiting for my chance. Sledge: You shouldn't have failed me. Fury: But, Master! Sledge: Remove his courage. Fury: No, don't! I'm your bravest soldier, Sledge! Bones: Time to lose your backbone.
(Bones reaches into Fury, and removes a section of his spine, taking his courage. He places it in a jar.)
Fury (scared): Please don't hurt me, please! Poisandra: Wow, you make big, brave Fury into a little scaredy cat. Just like the Diamond Ranger always calls him. Fury: Stop looking at me!
(Fury flees from the bridge.)
Sledge: Do that to the Rangers and let's see them crawl away in fear. Bones: With pleasure, Master.
(Down on the surface, Ivan is getting a tour of the lab.)
Kendall: The transmuter will refine the power of your Gold Energem, so that I can create Dino Chargers. Riley: Now, the Dino Charger will power your Morpher. Or your Gold Ptera Saber.
(Riley places a Dino Charger in Ivan's Saber.)
Morpher: Ptera Charger, engage! Ivan: Truly magical. Kendall: Now, over here are the crystal beds. Bring your Energem. Riley and Chase will show you another way we use it.
(Ace watches Kendall closely as she walks away, a slight smile on his face. Tyler is writing in his journal.)
Tyler (writing): Dad, I wanted so much for that to be you escaping Fury.
(Tyler is interrupted, as Shelby reads over his shoulder.)
Shelby: You misspelled "surprise." Tyler: Hey, that's not cool. Shelby: Well, you haven't said much since Ivan arrived. Koda: We know you're hoping for your father. Shelby: But you saw what Ivan can do. He's gonna make our team stronger. Koda: Find Energems faster. Shelby: And then... we're gonna find out what happened to your dad. Tyler: You're right. Thanks.
(Over at the crystal beds...)
Riley: This is where your Energem rests. Chase: So it can power your Dino Chargers. Ivan: Fascinating.
(Ivan's gem is pulled into the crystal beds, like he other gems.)
Ivan: Wizard's work. Ace: Remind me not to let Ivan watch any Harry Potter movies. JC: I have a feeling, like Koda at first, a lot of television is going to be foreign to him.
(Ivan takes back his Energem.)
Ivan: Well, 'twas a thoroughly entertaining afternoon. Perhaps we'll see each other again soon.
Riley: Wait, whoa-whoa-whoa, where are you going? You're part of our team now. Ivan: I have not joined your team. I'm a Knight of Zandar. When I pledge my loyalty it is for life. I'm sorry, I cannot make such a decision so hastily. Shelby: Wait, what? Decision? He-- he doesn't have a choice. He is the Gold Ranger.
(An alarm sounds.)
Kendall: Alien bio signs at the boat docks. Tyler: We'll have to worry about Ivan later. Let's go. Ace: Aye aye, Captain. Ready to cast off.
(The Rangers arrive at the docks, to find Poisandra, Curio, Bones and some Vivix.)
Ace: Just Dorothy and the Scarecrow. And a walking skeleton? Poisandra: Right on cue. Time to take their bravery! Tyler: Don't get your heart set on it! Ace: Or, since Wrench isn’t here, don’t get your brain set on it. You think I make too many Oz references? Poisandra: Vivix, attack!
(The Rangers start fighting the Vivix.)
Chase: You seaweed-heads never learn! Dino Morpher Blast! Now that's a hotshot.
(Koda takes on some Vivix unarmed.)
Koda: Stone Age Slam!
(As for Riley, ever the Swordsman...)
Riley: Raptor Slash!
(Ace fights one of the Vivix near a boat.)
Ace: Let's see if I can book you on a three hour tour. Hey, Gilligan, you on board? No. Oh well. Man, and I use the term loosely, overboard.
(Ace knocks the Vivix into the water.)
Poisandra (to Bones): Go prove yourself. Bones: I'm on it!
(Tyler keeps fighting Vivix.)
Tyler: Try to keep up!
(Bones cuts in.)
Bones: I've got a bone to pick with you!
(Tyler does a back flip over Bones.)
Tyler: Up here! Bones: That's enough playing around! Poisandra: Bones, get over here! Ace: Bones? His name is Bones? I'm a monster not a Doctor. Poisandra: Say goodbye to your courage, Red Ranger!
(Bones knocks Tyler through a table.)
Chase: I got you, Tyler.
(Chase fires on Bones, but he too is knocked down. It's Riley's turn.)
Riley: Power slash! Bones: I barely need to lift a finger bone to defeat you.
(Riley is also knocked down. Shelby takes over.)
Shelby: Flying kick! Bones (singing): The foot bone's connected to the-- (spoken) oh, now what?
(Koda tries to defeat Bones with his strength, but Bones proves stronger.)
Bones: Give it a wrist, Blue Ranger.
(Koda is knocked down.)
Shelby: Koda, are you okay? Ace: There's only one way to stop him. We need some sticks and stones to break his bones. Shelby: Ace, be serious. Poisandra: Skeletons are so in right now. Bones: Time to remove some backbones.
(A sword flies past the Rangers, landing in front of Bones.)
Tyler: It's Ivan!
(Indeed, the Gold Ranger has arrived. He leaps into the air, firing at Bones with his Morpher.)
Chase: Hey, I'm the hotshot. Ace: Doesn’t mean you're the only one.
(Ivan delivers a series of kicks to Bones.)
Shelby: Nice kick. Ivan: Ptera Saber!
(Ivan delivers a series of slashes, forcing a strategic withdrawal.)
Poisandra: You better watch your backs!
(The three villains leave.)
Ivan: Good riddance.
(Ivan leaps over the other Rangers and leaves.)
Shelby: Ivan's got to join us. I'm gonna go talk to him. Ace: I'll go with you, Shelb. (thinking) And maybe find something to give to Kendall.
(As Ivan walks through Amber Beach, most people laugh at his attire. Ace and Shelby catch up to him.)
Shelby: Wait... Ivan! What's with you? You're a Power Ranger now. There are responsibilities that come with that. Ivan: Indeed, I am a Ranger. But I'm also a knight. I cannot join your band until they've proven their worth. Shelby: Proof? If it wasn't for us, you would still be stuck inside Fury. If that isn't proof, then I don't know what is. Ace: Or all the times we've saved the city, and possibly, the whole world, by vanquishing Sledge's monsters. Ivan: Milady and Milord. You make valid points. Perhaps I should reconsider. Lead me to your friends. Please--
(Shelby starts dragging Ivan.)
(The other Rangers are heading back to the museum.)
Chase: Sir Ivan's a little bit too big for his boots. Koda: Oh, then-- then we just get him new boots, yes? Riley: Not exactly. I think Chase is just a little jealous of Ivan's skills. Chase: Ouch. JC: That's also not what Chase meant, Koda. Tyler: Watch out!
(Various bones bind them. Bones walks into view, laughing.)
Chase: You think some bones could hold us? Bones: You're pretty brave now.
(Bones shoves Tyler to the side.)
Bones: Out of my way!
(He stands behind Chase.)
Bones: We'll see how tough you are after I take your courage.
(Bones reaches into Chase, and pulls. Chase starts laughing.)
Bones: Oh, wrong one, that's your funny bone. I'm looking for your...
(Bones finds his target and pulls it out.)
Bones: Backbone! Tyler: Leave him alone! Bone: Ah, won't need those anymore.
(Chase is freed, and afraid.)
Chase: Get back! Ahh, stay away from me! Bones: Come on, Ranger, show a little backbone! Oh, wait, you can't, 'cause I have it. And now for the four of you!
(Elsewhere, Shelby and Ace keep walking with Ivan.)
Shelby: You won't be disappointed. They're as brave as any Knight of Zandar. Ace: You just have to watch out for Chase's ego. And Koda, well, he's still learning about modern times, like you will.
(Unfortunately, thanks to Bones, the others aren’t that brave anymore.)
Bones: Your leader is fearless no more. Poisandra: Get 'em, Curio! Tyler: Don't come near us!
(Unfortunately, that’s when Ivan, Shelby and Ace arrive.)
Ivan: What a pack of lily-livered fools. Shelby: What have you done to them?!
(Now it's Curio's turned to be scared.)
Shelby: This isn't normal, I, uh-- Poisandra: Oh, it's the Gold Ranger! We can't risk losing again. Bones: You're right, we already have five rangers. Let's go tell Sledge how well we did.
(The villains leave.)
Ivan: Brave as a Knight of Zandar, mm-hmm.
Shelby: Wait. Ivan...
(Later, Ace and Shelby get the others back to the museum. Getting them through the secret entrance, however, is another story.)
Koda: No, I-- I no wanna go. Shelby: Get down there!
(Shelby starts tickling Koda.)
Koda: That tickled!
(Shelby turns he tooth, opening the slide.)
Chase: Koda! Shelby: Come on, Chase. You're next! Chase: Oh, oh! It might bite me! Ace: Id say tell him there's a pretty girl down there waiting for him, but in his current state, that might scare him as well.
(Shelby grabs Tyler.)
Tyler: Shelby, please, please, I am afraid of dinosaurs. Please, please! What is wrong with you, Shelby?! JC: I think I'll just use the stairs..
(Shelby pushes JC down the slide before he can move. Elsewhere in Amber Beach, Ivan witnesses a crossing guard at work. Ivan walks over to him.)
Ivan: Sir! These massive metal beasts could crush you. And yet you rule over them with a mere wave of your hand. Guard: Well, I... Ivan: Sir, I would like you to join with me on my quest. Guard: I've always dreamed of going on a quest. Ivan: Sir, your dream is about to come true. Guard: Oh...
(Ivan kneels to the crossing guard, despite waiting cars honking. Up in space...)
Bones: You should've seen the Rangers huddled together like scared kittens! Sledge: Finally, all nine of them are mine! Bones: Um, well, actually, I only took the courage from four of them. Sledge: What?!
(Sledge knocks Bones into a shuttle pod.)
Sledge: Don't you dare come back until you have all six and their Energems.
(The pod is launched. Down below, a street performer is entertaining a crowd. Breathing fire, and sword swallowing.)
Ivan: That man is swallowing his sword.
(The crowd applauds.)
Performer: Thank you, thank you so much, everybody. You've been a wonderful audience. Thank you, thank you, everybody, thank you.
(Ivan walks over to him.)
Ivan: Fine sir, your dragon's breath and throat of steel are truly admirable. Performer: My mom told me I should get a real job. Ivan: And a real job you shall have.
(Back at the lab…)
Shelby: Any sign of Ivan yet? Kendall: No. If Sledge's monsters attack now, you're gonna have to fight with the boys whether they're ready or not. Shelby: I doubt they're gonna be much help.
(Koda comes running out of his cave.)
(A little white mouse is the cause of Koda's fear.)
Tyler: Ah, ah, get me away from the mouse! JC: Where's a cat when you need one!
(Elsewhere, an old woman, riding an electric scooter, is being robbed.)
Robber: Hand it over! Woman: Hey, give me that! Hands off my purse!
(The woman hits the robber with her purse, causing him to flee.)
Woman: Oh, bad boy!
(Ivan and his two "knights" have witnessed what happened.)
(All three just nod. Back at the lab, an alarm sounds.)
Shelby: Oh, this isn't good. Ace: You're telling me. Chase was afraid I was going to hit him with my comic book.
(A hologram map shows three alien signatures.)
Kendall: Bones is back. And he's got company. Ace: Kirk and Spock?
(Another blip is seen on the map.)
Shelby: There's Ivan! Kendall: He's heading straight toward Bones. Shelby: I have to help him. Ace: Not without me. Friends don’t abandon each other in time of need.
Poisandra: Well, what do we have here?
(Ivan's team of knights has grown larger, now including the old woman, a tuba player and a referee.)
Poisandra: You've got to be joking. Ivan: Prepare to incur the wrath of... the Knights of Amber Beach!
(Ivan's "knights" prepare their weapons. A long string of scarves, a stop sign, a swinging purse, a tuba, a whistle.)
Bones: Vivix, rise!
(Not prepared for this, the Knights of Amber Beach flee.)
(Ivan starts fighting the Vivix, not realizing he fights alone, until he sees his group leaving.)
Ivan: Where is your loyalty? A worthy band is indeed hard to find.
(Back at the lab, Kendall is forcing the others into action.)
Kendall: You've got to go help! Koda: Not fight that meany! Chase: I don't wanna go! Kendall: Oh, seriously, come on, please. Riley: There are monsters out there. JC: I kind of feel like there's monsters in here too. I mean, why did Shelby push us down the slide?
Keeper: Ace, Shelby and Ivan need your help. Riley: But, Keeper, we're... we're too scared. Keeper: Bones took only a symbol of your bravery, but not your bravery itself. Is there any battle you would not fight to save your friends? Tyler: Of course not. Keeper: Then you see, everyone has fears. But true courage is finding the strength to fight even when you are afraid. Chase: Shelby, Ace and Ivan. Riley: Against that monster. Koda: They... counting on us. Tyler: We can't. We won't let them down. JC: You're right. Let's do this.
(Back at the battle...)
Bones: Your knights have abandoned you, Gold Ranger!
(Bones doesn’t notice the backbones he took from the Rangers leaving his jar, returning to where they belong. Ivan keeps fighting, until Bones tosses him, and Vivix grab him.)
Ivan: Unhand me, you beast! Bones: Even the bravest of Rangers can't beat me alone. Time for you to lose your backbone.
Shelby: Think again!
(Shelby and Ace arrive on their Dino Cycles, attacking Vivix.)
(Later, at the museum, Ivan tells his tale to his new allies.)
Ivan: I was riding with the young prince. It was a day like so many before. And a day like none that would follow.
(Flashback, 800 years ago, in Zandar.)
Ivan (v/o): When the prince became thirsty, we stopped beside a creek. And there it was, glistening in the water. The Gold Energem. Fury: It's mine! Ivan (v/o): I was able to keep the monster from harming the young prince. But when he blasted us, the Energem was knocked free and the powerful beast revealed himself to be... Fury. I was certain he would destroy me. But instead the Energem sent a bolt of power up Fury's sword and across mine, bonding me with the spirit of the Pterodactyl. Fury: What?! No! How dare you bond to my Energem! Ivan (v/o): I struggled, I struggled mightily. But Fury was too strong. And he dragged me into his dark... and evil body.
(The Energem bounces off Fury, instead of becoming his.)
Fury: The Energem... where did it go? I've lost it! Ivan (v/o): The Energem fell into the creek where I thought it was lost forever. But, luckily... it was found by--
(Food is set down in front of Ivan.)
Ivan: Ooh, what is that? Koda: Bronto Burger.
(Ivan takes a bite, and enjoys it.)
Koda: You want get fries? Ivan (mouth full): Mm-hmm, mm-hmm. Shelby: Wait! Tyler: How, how does it end? Ivan: Oh, you know, 800 years of darkness, then you saved me and here I am. Oh... And as I said, a knight's loyalty is forever. I'm honored to be part of your team.
(It's an unusually quiet day in Amber Beach. At the museum, Ace is in the gift shop, putting out new post cards, some of which feature the Zandar exhibit.)
Ace (thinking): I still don’t get how this stuff fits in at a Dinosaur museum. Even if Kendall says this is a general history museum, it still has Dinosaur in the name.
Ivan: Ah, Sir Ace. You are the shopkeeper? Ace: You could say that. Ivan: Then I require some supplies. I require a new sheath for my sword, a new cape, a pair of gauntlets... Ace: Sorry, Ivan. We don't sell any of that. We only sell souvenirs of the museum. I don’t know where you would get any of what you're looking for.
(Ace shows Ivan a postcard, which has a reproduction of the painting telling the story of the Stone of Zandar.)
Ivan: What a talented artist this must be. To do this full painting on such a tiny canvas. Ace: It's not a painting. It's an image of the painting. Ivan: Incredible. So many innovations I have missed.
(Ivan leaves the gift shop, heading for the cafe. Jean-Claude is busy busing a table when Ivan arrives.)
Ivan: Sir JC, do you know where I may get supplies. Sir Ace the shopkeeper had none of what I needed. C: I guess that depends on the supplies? Ivan: A sheath, a cape, gauntlets. And perhaps a new steed, if you know of a equerry. JC: Don't think I can help with the sheath and gauntlets, but a cape might be easy to find at a department store, or something similar to one. As for a horse, well other than some farms, I can't really think of anything. You could probably ask Riley about the horse. He used to live on a farm. Ivan: A department store? Is that similar to a tailor? JC: Kind of. But they don't make things there, they only sell them. Department stores usually sell clothes and things that people need. I wouldn't ask about gauntlets or sheathes there, though. Ivan: Perhaps I should make sure I have enough money.
(Quatra enters. Ivan sits down at a table, and takes out his coin purse. He dumps several gold Zandarian coins onto the table.)
Quatra: That's a lot of money JC: Hey Quatra, didn't hear you come in. (to Ivan) I'm not entirely sure if your gold will work, considering the currency is new now. I mean, you'll probably get a lot for the exchange rate, but still. Quatra: I was just here to start my shift Ivan: It matters not. It is but fifteen Zandarian crowns. A decent cape should cost no less than thirty.
(Koda walks over.)
Koda: Shiny. Like stones in river. JC: Actually, Ivan, a decent cape, if you were using your gold, would cost less than one of them, because you'd likely be rich with just one coin with the exchange rate. Ivan: Exchange rate? Is that like a barter? JC: I'm kind of not the one to ask these questions to, really. Riley is probably better suited. He knows more about this kind of stuff than most of us. Koda: Riley down helping Kendall. JC: Oh really? With what? Koda: Kendall not say. Quatra: Must be a surprise. JC: I hope it's something to do with our Zords. Even though I have my powers from my Energem, my Zord hasn't been found yet.
(The communicators chirp. Jean-Claude pulls his communicator out.)
Kendall (v/o): Rangers, come down to the lab at once. JC: I guess something must be urgent. Let's go. (to Ivan) Your shopping spree will have to wait until later.
(Quatra heads to the lab. The others follow. Ivan starts putting his coins away. Soon, the Rangers arrive in the lab. Kendall is not in her usual suit, but a more formal gown, which has Ace's full attention.)
JC: Umm, are we underdressed for something? Kendall: I have to attend a dinner with some potential donors to the museum. It's necessary to help pay the bills. JC: Oh, so it's not about the emergency, then. Riley: We found some activity that could be caused by Zords. JC: That was strange, since I was just talking about that upstairs. Chase: You must be psychic, mate… You should take to Moana. JC: Probably just a coincidence. Anyway, like Quatra said, any in particular? I mean, I think we're still missing three. Kendall: We can't determine what any of them are with any degree of certainty. They could be underground, like the Ankylo Zord was. Quatra: So, where do we start looking? C: That probably rules out my zord, if it's underground. Would be too big, I'd imagine. Riley: Not necessarily. She said it could be underground, not that it was for sure. We know one disturbance was in the forest, and the other, the mountains. Quatra: The mountains might be my zord, but I am not certain. Shelby: Either of them could be Ace's. The tupandactylus was a flying dinosaur, like Ivan's pterosaur. Quatra: I see
(Ace is speechless, staring at Kendall.)
Quatra: Earth to Ace, come in, Ace. Ace: Huh, wha? Quatra: Well, I guess you know where to start your search. I'll check the mountains Riley: Tyler, Shelby and Koda will go with you. Ace, JC, Ivan and Chase, head for the forest. Since Miss Morgan will be busy, I'll stay here with Keeper. JC: Sounds like a plan, then. Quatra: Indeed. Tyler: Let's move out, and hope Sledge doesn't learn about this. JC: Good luck at the mountains. Quatra: Same to you at the forest. Ace: The forest? Maybe we'll should set up a camera, to see if we can learn if a tree falls and there's no one around, if it makes a sound or not. Riley: It would make a sound, from disrupting the air.
(Jean-Claude smiles a bit at Quatra, before turning to the others that's going with him.)
JC: We should probably stay more focused on the task, Ace. At least until we're done.
Ace (whispered): It'll be easier for me to focus once we're out of here. Kendall looks... wow. JC: I imagine since the others will be using Tyler's jeep, we'll need some other transportation. Don't think I want to walk all the way there. Ace: I can borrow my mom's minivan. JC: Or we could just morph and use our bikes. Ivan: Bike? JC: Actually, Ivan doesn't have one. He'll have to hitch a ride. Ivan: I would, but there is not a single hitching post to be found anywhere nearby. Quatra: That's not what he meant JC: That's not what I meant. It means you have to ride with one of us. Ivan: Ah, I see. JC: Anyway, you'll see what we mean by "bikes" when we get out of here and summon them. Ivan: Very well. Let us begin our quest. JC: Yeah.
(Jean-Claude starts to leave. Quatra leaves. Ace, Chase and Ivan follow JC< while Tyler, Shelby and Koda follow Quatra. Ace looks at his phone. Once everyone is outside, Tyler, Shelby, Koda and Quatra go to Tyler's jeep. Jean-Claude looks around, to make sure no one that isn't in the know sees them. He pulls out his Dino Charger.)
JC: You guys ready? Ace: Too bad I couldn’t get a picture of Kendall. That would have been my new wallpaper. But yea, I’m ready. JC: Alright then. Dino Chargers!
(Jean-Claude gets in position. Ace, Chase and Ivan take out their Chargers.)
JC, Ace, Chase & Ivan: Ready! Energize! Unleash the Power!
(The four morph.)
Chase: Summon Dino Cycles. Morpher: Dino Cycles.
(Three Dino Cycles appear.)
Ivan: Magical steeds. JC: These are the bikes. Ivan: Quite remarkable. JC: Alright, pick who you want to ride with, Ivan. We better get going. Ivan: I shall ride with Sir Chase. C: Alright. Then let's ride.
(Jean-Claude gets on his Dino Cycle.)
Chase: And what if he sees a cute girl along the way? I don’t want to give anyone the wrong idea about me. JC: Chase… We're morphed. They can't see your face. Chase: Way to take the fun out of life.
(Ivan gets onto Chase's bike.)
Ace: Riley sent a map to my communicator. I'll take the lead. JC: Alright, lead the way.
(Ace starts towards the forest. Nearby, Tyler drives his jeep around to pick up Shelby, Koda and Quatra. Quatra gets into the Jeep.)
Koda: Koda wanted ride... shotgun. Shelby: Where'd you learn that term, Koda? Koda: From magic box, Riley watch movie where man say he ride shotgun.
Once everyone is settled, Tyler heads towards the mountains. A short time later, the other group arrives in the forest.)
JC: I guess we might have to split up and search. Ace: The map Riley sent me showcases two possible locations. The heart of the forest, and near a rather large lake, about a mile in. JC: A lake, huh. Sounds like a perfect hiding spot for a bronto. I'll head that way. Ace: A tupandactylus could be anywhere. Since it can fly. Ivan: My Ptera Zord could be useful. I shall accompany Sir Ace. JC: I guess that leave me and Chase going to the lake. Chase: Maybe we'll have time for a swim. JC: Not sure. (pauses) Uh, Ace? Which direction is the lake?
(Ace looks at his communicator.)
Ace: Northeast of here. JC: Alright. I suggest if we find anything, we let the other know. Ace: Good idea.
(None of the Rangers notice Vivix watching them.)
JC: Let's go, Chase.
(Jean-Claude revs his bike, and starts to head northeast. Ivan gets on Ace's bike, as they head due north, into the heart of the forest. Jean-Claude and Chase get to the lake in less than ten minutes.)
Chase: Look at those waves. A bit unusual for a lake. JC: That obviously means something below the surface is making those waves. Chase: I’m pretty sure Kendall didn't give us a Scuba charger yet. So, how do we see what's in there? JC: I hope you can hold your breath. Chase: You forget, I’m from New Zealand. When I wasn't at the skate park, I was at the beach. JC: Then we don't need a "Scuba Charger". We'll have to make do with just doing this the old-fashioned way.
(Chase powers down, and takes off his shirt.)
JC: Uh, Chase… We can just go in the lake morphed, you know. Chase: Again taking the fun out of everything. JC: besides, going morphed will likely keep our clothes dry. Chase: If you say so, mate.
(Chase re-morphs, before a massive wave soaks the two of them.)
JC: These waves are definitely from something huge. It's gotta be a zord. I guess we'll find out which one. Voice: Not if I get there first.
(An alien, who appears to be an octopus, appears, accompanied by Vivix.)
JC: Great. Figures Sledge's goons would show up. Alien: Call me Inkling. And Sledge promised to free me if I get to a Zord before you losers. JC: Well, that's new. Usually Sledge just wants our Energems. Inkling: Oh, he sent my friend for those.
(Inkling sprays ink on JC and Chase's visors.)
JC: Can't see. Good thing we're close to a lake. Chase: Hopefully the water will wash the ink off.
(The sound of a tree falling behind them can be heard. Jean-Claude tries to ignore the tree falling and heads for the lake. A splash is heard, as Inkling dives in first. Chase also moves towards the water.)
JC: Wait. Chase, did you go into the water? Chase: No, I’m still trying to find it. JC: I think Inkling just beat us to it, then. Either way, follow my voice. I remember the direction where we were standing where the lake was. Chase: Right. Voice: Of follow my voice to your doom, Rangers.
(Jean-Claude reaches the edge of the water, and feels it hitting his morphed boots.)
JC: Ignore whoever that is, until we can get the ink off. I'm at the edge Chase: Just keep talking.
(Jean-Claude kneels down in the water.)
JC: Head this way.
(Jean-Claude tries cupping his gloved hands into the water to wash the ink off his helmet. Chase moves closer to JC. Another splash is heard, much bigger than the one Inkling made. The splash knocks Jean-Claude down, but the splash washes the ink away off his helmet.)
JC: I can see again.
(He will see a fallen tree floating in the lake. That is what caused the splash.)
JC: Okay, we might have another problem. Someone else is here other than us and Inkling. Whoever that was that talked while we were blind.
(A bear-looking alien steps forward.)
Alien: The name's Grizzle. Sledge wants your Energems, and I want some fresh meat. JC: Can't you aliens wait your turn? Grizzle: We are. Inkling went after you, now it's my turn while he's taking a swim. JC: Chase, head in the direction of my voice, and keep walking that way. You'll reach the water then. I'll handle this guy. Chase: Right. Grizzle: Not so fast.
(Grizzle throws a yellow glob at Chase. When it hits, he's covered in honey, and stuck to the ground.)
Chase: Why can't I move? JC: You know, I'm getting sick of this. I think it's time to use my new Dino Charger, thanks to Kendall.
(Jean-Claude pulls it out, as well as his Morpher.)
JC: Dino Steel! Bronto Whip! Morpher: Dino Steel, engage! (Jean-Claude's suit gets the Dino Steel armor on one arm, and a weapon that looks like a whip appears in his hand.)
JC: Time to crack you into shape.
(Jean-Claude uses the whip to grab Grizzle's leg, then pulls, trying to knock him off his feet. Grizzle grab onto a tree.)
Grizzle: You can't be stronger than I am, Ranger. JC: It seems you don't know much about the Brontosaurus.
(Jean-Claude grabs the whip with both hands, and pulls with all his might. Grizzle is pulled off his feet, but he pulls the tree as well. It starts to fall towards Chase. Jean-Claude sees the tree falling, and quickly unfurls the whip from Grizzle's leg, and cracks the whip again, this time at the tree. The impact should knock the tree so it doesn't hit Chase. The tree hits the water, seconds before Inkling is thrown out of the water. Jean-Claude notices Inkling being thrown. But instead of worrying about either of them, he heads over to Chase.)
JC: You alright, Chase? Chase: Considering I can’t see and can’t move, I could be worse. JC: Yeah, you could be. I just stopped Grizzle from flattening you with a tree with my new weapon. Chase: Kendall told me she was working on that. JC: Yeah. She finished it this morning. Hold still. Chase: Like I have much of a choice.
(Jean-Claude steps back a bit, then uses the Bronto Whip on the honey keeping Chase in place, hoping that enough force with the whip breaks the honey to let Chase move. The honey flies off in chunks.)
Chase: Ah, much better. Good thing Ace wasn't here. Who knows what he would have compared me to? Chase: Right. Grizzle: What happened? Inkling: Whatever's in that water grabbed me, and shot me out of there like a torpedo. JC: Let's hurry up before they notice what we're doing.
(Jean-Claude grabs Chase and heads to the edge of the water.)
Chase: Too bad I don’t have my board. You could get me there even faster.
(Jean-Claude says nothing, and stops at the lake's edge. He helps Chase get the ink off his helmet. Chase bends over and stares at his reflection in the water.)
Chase: There's a sight for sore eyes. JC: Now that we both can see, we should split up. I'll check under the lake. You being the hotshot should be able to handle these two until I get back. Chase: No problem.
(Chase takes out his Morpher.)
JC: See you when I get back.
(Jean-Claude starts to wade into the lake.)
Inkling: Oh no you don’t. Grizzle, distract the Black Ranger.
(Grizzle sends a boulder rolling towards Chase, as Inkling moves towards the water. Jean-Claude quickly makes his way deeper into the lake.)
JC: Whatever's down here, you're not getting your hands on it for Sledge.
(Jean-Claude holds his breath, and dives underwater. Inkling dives in after JC, and expels more ink, making the water murkier. Jean-Claude looks around under the water, but can't see much because of the ink. Something moves past Jean Claude, but it isn't Inkling. It's much larger. Jean-Claude tries moving in the direction of what it was. He soon hits something. Something metallic. Jean-Claude uses a gloved hand to feel the metallic object. 's large and round, like a piece of oil pipeline. Jean-Claude starts to feel like he's almost out of air. He starts to get ready to surface. Something starts to suck in the water, and Jean-Claude with it. Jean-Claude tries to struggle, but can't. Jean-Claude is pulled into a pipe. He slides down it, before the water is drained away, He's in an air filled chamber. There are no lights, so he can't see where he is. Jean-Claude tries to look around.)
JC: Okay, I think I'm definitely in a zord. Just not sure which one it is, since it was hard to see with the ink in the water. I better tell the others.
(Jean-Claude takes his communicator out. On the surface, Chase is blasting the boulder, trying to reduce it to pebbles.)
JC: (v/o) Chase, do you read me? Chase: Yeah. Just a little busy trying to make one big rock into thousands of little ones. JC: (v/o) I think I found the zord. I just don't know which one it is. Inkling inked the water, so I couldn't see it, but the zord sucked me inside it. I think it was trying to save me, since I was running out of air. Chase: If it's your Zord, your Energem should have a reaction. JC: (v/o) Good idea. I think it's safe to demorph in here. I'll see if my energem is glowing. Chase: Good luck, mate.
(Back inside the zord, Jean-Claude puts his communicator away. He then demorphs. Jean Claude's energem is already glowing.)
JC: So my energem is glowing. This has to be the Brontosaurus. It must've not only saved me because of me running out of air, but sensed that I was its partner. How about we get to the surface and help my friend, Bronto?
(The chamber lights up. It is indeed the Bronto Zord cockpit.)
(Jean-Claude smiles, and takes his Dino Charger back out, then morphs.)
JC: Good thing Kendall also gave us Dino Drive chargers in case we run into our zords. Dino Drive!
(Jean-Claude's suit gets Dino Drive mode, as he steps onto the place he needs to be to control the Bronto Zord. On the surface, Chase has finished blasting the boulder. Seconds later, the Bronto Zord surfaces.)
JC: (v/o) Need a hand? Chase: Or in this case, a neck. Grizzle: I can bend that neck like a horseshoe. JC: (v/o) Oh really? Let's show him what we can do, Bronto.
(The Bronto Zord roars, and spins, swinging its tail at Grizzle like a baseball bat. Grizzle and Inkling are both sent flying. (Inside the Bronto Zord…)
JC: That'll teach them not to underestimate us. Right, Bronto?
(The Bronto Zord roars again.)
Chase: That's got to be the biggest Zord we've got so far. JC: Now that Bronto's on our side, we should go help the others. Chase: We should let Riley and Keeper know we've found it. JC: I know, but we should still be heading in the direction of the others. Chase: That might be a little too big to take through the trees. Probably want to get back on your Bike. JC: I wasn't planning to take Bronto.
(Jean-Claude exits the Bronto Zord, back onto the ground.)
JC: Sorry. You know where to go. I'm sure the others will be glad to see you. Chase: Yeah.
(The Bronto Zord starts heading off to where the other zords wait to be called. Meanwhile, Tyler's jeep arrives in the mountains.)
Shelby: We should be near the possible Zord activity. I wish we knew which one we were looking for. Quatra's or Ace's. Koda: Why not JC's? Shelby: A Brontosaurus wouldn’t have enough room here in the mountains, Koda. It's way too big. Tyler: So, we're looking for a Styrofoam or a Tupperware? Shelby: Styracosaur or tupandactylus, Tyler. Quatra: Let's see what we can find here.
(A blast narrowly misses Tyler's jeep. Tyler pulls over to the side of the narrow road.)
(It's Fury, Wrench and some Vivix.)
Quatra: Just what we do not need. Fury: Just make it easy on yourselves and give us your Energems. Tyler: When do we ever make things easy for you, Fury? Wrench: There's a first time for everything. Vivix, attack!
(The Vivix charge at the Rangers. The four Rangers leap out of Tyler's jeep to fight the Vivix. Koda picks up a chunk of wood, to use as a weapon.)
Koda: Now you see why I caveman strong.
(As the fight ensues, the ground starts to shake, and Quatra's Energem will start glowing.)
Quatra: I think my Zord is here. Fury: A Zord? Sledge will be even more pleased, when I deliver to him four Energems and a Zord Quatra: We need to stop Fury while I find my zord. Tyler: We can handle them. Find your Zord.
(Quatra begins to look for any signs of other quakes, to look for her zord. Tyler, Shelby and Koda morph, to give Quatra more time. Quatra morphs. Rocks fall from the side of a mountain, near a rather large cave. Quatra heads for the cave. The cave is rather large, bigger than the lab under the museum. And it goes about a mile into the mountain.) Quatra: It has to be here.
(Quatra heads deeper into the cave. About half a mile in, there are two small lights in the darkness. Like two glowing eyes.)
Quatra: Come on, Styraco, I want to show you the other members of the team.
(The eyes start moving towards Quatra, scaring a group of bats living in the cave.)
Quatra: I won't harm you.
(A low moan is heard from the darkness. It's definitely not human. Quatra heads towards the sound. As she gets closer, her energem starts glowing brighter. And she can see a shape, around the same size as the Tricera Zord.)
Quatra: So, you are related to Tricera Zord? Interesting.
(Styraco Zord roars, echoing through the cave.)
Quatra: its okay, your owner is here.
(Quatra holds up her Energem. (Styraco Zord starts moving towards Quatra.)
Quatra: Open up, so I can get in.
(Styraco Zord just keeps moving forward, towards the cave exit. if Quatra doesn't move, it may push her. Quatra moves away, wondering why the zord didn't listen to her. Styraco Zord moves past Quatra, rushing out of the cave, before stopping.)
Quatra: Why'd it stop?
(Quatra tries her communicator. The minerals in the cave keep her from sending a clear transmission. Outside, Styraco Zord charges at the Vivix, plowing through them.)
Quatra: Good job, Styraco.
(Quatra leaves the cave.)
Fury: Master Sledge, we need back-up.
(A rock-like alien appears.)
Wrench: Granitary, destroy the Rangers do we can take the Energems. Granitary: I'll rock them to sleep, with a rockslide.
(Granitary throws a bowling ball sized rock at the mountain. It hits, and shakes the entire area. creating a rockslide.)
(Quatra is barely standing after the rockslide. Styraco Zord moves towards the base of the mountain, using its horns to prevent any more rocks from hitting the Rangers.)
Quatra: Good job. Granitary: This will leave you feeling rocky.
(Granitary pounds the ground, causing it to shake. Quatra stumbles to the ground. Tyler and Shelby also fall. Koda struggles to remain standing. Quatra tries to stand. Wrench charges at Quatra, axe at the ready, while Fury charges at Koda.)
Quatra: Wish I had a weapon like the others.
(Quatra's communicator chirps.)
Quatra: Yes, Miss Morgan? Riley (v/o): She's not back yet, but she did leave you a surprise in your belt. A new Dino Charger, with your new weapon. The Styraco Mace.
Quatra: I'll see what it can do. Styraco Mace, ready.
(Quatra activates her Dino Charger for the mace. A large club, with numerous spikes, appears.)
Quatra: Let's see what this can do. Granitary: Ooh, pointy. Let's see if you can rock out against me.
(Granitary throws a baseball sized rock at Quatra. Quatra attacks the rock with her mace. The rock is shattered by the blow.)
Quatra: Looks like I rock. Granitary: I make the puns around here.
(Granitary rolls a larger boulder, about the size of Tyler's jeep, at Quatra. Quatra attacks again with the mace. The boulder is split in half.)
Quatra: Anything else? Granitary: Time for the big one.
(Granitary covers his fists in stone, and pounds the ground with all his might. It feels like a 5.0 Earthquake. (Quatra attacks the monster with her mace)
Granitary: She rocked me at my very foundation.
Quatra: Monster... extinct. Tyler: Don’t rush to judge. You know they usually get bigger. Quatra: True. Fury: Master Sledge, we need the Magna Beam. Sledge (v/o): Forget about Granitary. Go help Inkling and Grizzle. Fury: Yes, Master.
(Fury and Wrench leave.)
Quatra: I found my zord. Tyler: Good job, Quatra. We should try to meet up with Chase and the others, see if they found anything.
Tyler: Go ahead. Quatra: I found the Styraco. What's left? JC: (v/o) We have one zord down to find here. I found mine. Chase and I are on the way to help Ace. How's it going there? Quatra: I found mine. Tyler: Did you two encounter anyone named Grizzle and Inkling? JC: (v/o) Great. That means the one Ace is going after has to be his. (pauses) Yeah, we did. But they weren't a match for my Bronto Zord. Tyler: Fury and Wrench are going to back them up. Try and get to Ace and Ivan as quickly as possible. We're heading that way now. Quatra: We're on our way. JC: (v/o) We're on our way on our Dino Cycles right now. See you then.
(Quatra boards the jeep. Back in the forest, Ace is distracted while he and Ivan are looking for Zord activity.)
Ivan: Sir Ace, is something occupying your thoughts? Ace: Oh, just thinking about K... someone. Ivan: Someone in particular? Ace: Yeah. I guess you were popular with the ladies back in Zandar? Ivan: As a knight, I had my pick of the maidens of the Kingdom. There was one I was supposed to escort to a ball at the palace, but that was the night after my voyage with Prince Colin. So, alas, I never made it to the ball. Ace: Was she beautiful? Ivan: She was the fairest in the land, after the Queen, of course. I take it your thoughts are on a woman? Ace: Yeah. Ivan: Lady Shelby? Ace: What? No. She's one of my closest fiends. We went on a date once, and realized we were better off as friends. Ivan: Another who works at the museum? Ace: Yeah, Ivan: And you wish to woo her? Ace: You could say that? Ivan; As a knight, I let my actions do the wooing for me.
(Ace and Ivan should start hearing engines get closer to their location.)
Ivan: Dragons. Ace: No, Sounds like its Chase and JC. They must have found something.
(Moments later, JC and Chase ride up on their Dino Cycles.)
Ace: See, I told you. JC: Have any luck yet? Ace: No, not yet. How about you two? JC: My Bronto was hanging out in the lake. And we were attacked by two of Sledge's aliens. Ace: Great. Now we've got a Zord we can use to recreate the opening of The Flintstones. Ivan: I used a flint stone to light a fire, striking it on my sword. Ace: Not what we're talking about, Ivan. JC: So you guys haven't run into any aliens? The two we ran into is probably heading this way. We already contacted Tyler and the others. They found Quatra's zord, and Fury and the others showed up there. Ivan: We have seen no sign of our foes. C: Well, hopefully we can find Ace's zord before they show up. But either way, Tyler and the others are heading here. Voice: Four more Rangers. Still no sign of green.
(It's Fury, Wrench, Grizzle and Inkling.)
JC: I guess that ruins that hope. Grizzle: Watch out for the Brown one, Fury. He found his Zord already. JC: My zord wasn't the only thing you have to watch out for, unless you want another fall. Fury: He has no room to summon a Zord here. Ace: Look, Snagglepuss, why don’t you exit, stage left, and take Yogi Bear, Squidly Diddly and Frankenstein Jr. with you. Ivan: Nay, Sir Ace. I still have much to settle with Fury. JC: Inkling may be trouble, actually. He inked me and Chase, making it hard for us to see anything. If it wasn't for my zord, both of them working together could've been trouble for us. Chase: And Grizzle throws globs of honey that kept me from moving. JC: Don't forget the boulders. Ace: Ok, so he's not Yogi Bear. He's Winnie the Pooh. I guess that makes Fury Tigger. JC: Nah, Fury isn't agile enough for that. Ace: He's more like Eeyore, but he's not a donkey. Fury: Enough of this! Get them! JC: Okay, no more talking.
(Jean-Claude gets ready to fight. Ivan charges at Fury. Jean-Claude also charges, but at Grizzle. Ace charges at Wrench, trying to disarm him with his Tupandactyl darts, leaving Inkling for Chase.)
Chase: Time to get some payback for keeping me from taking a squizz.
(Jean-Claude and Grizzle start going toe to toe. Despite Jean-Claude not having his Bronto Whip, they seem to be evenly matched in strength.)
Grizzle: Not bad, for a Terran. Too bad for you, I’m from Ursac IV.
(Grizzle roars, loudly.)
JC: I'm more than just a "Terran". I'm a Power Ranger, with the power of the Brontosaurus.
(Jean-Claude decides to grab Grizzle while he roars, grabbing him from his legs. He starts lifting Grizzle off the ground.)
Grizzle: Most humanoids lose their balance when I roar. Your helmet must protect you.
(Grizzle tries to lock JC in a literal bear Hug.)
C: Want a closer look at my helmet? Here.
(Jean-Claude head butts Grizzle. Grizzle releases his bear hug, but tries to claw Jean-Claude across the chest. Jean-Claude tries blocking.)
Grizzle: You call that a block? I'll show you a block.
(Grizzle uproots a tree, and uses it shoves it into Jean-Claude. (Jean-Claude can't block that, and is knocked backwards.)
Grizzle: Now, I'll do to you what your Zord did to me and Inkling,
(Grizzle grabs the tree, and swings it like a bat.)
JC: I'm not done yet. (pulls out a Dino Charger) Dino Steel! Bronto Whip!
(Jean-Claude summons his weapon, then whips it towards Grizzle. The whip breaks the tree in half, with the top half flying right at Inkling.)
Inkling: Oh no!
(Inkling is sent flying, again.)
Chase: I didn't even get to show him why I’m such a hotshot.
(Inking lands, several miles away, on the hood of Tyler's jeep. The impact causing him to spray ink all over the windshield.)
Quatra: Look out!
(Tyler slams on the breaks, forcing Inkling off the hood.)
Tyler: I hope I’m not out of washer fluid.
(Back in the forest...)
Grizzzle: Now I'll break you the way your toy broke my weapon. JC: I guess you didn't learn your lesson the last time I took you out with this. Grizzle: Let's see you whip this.
(Grizzle throws three globs of honey at Jean-Claude.)
Grizzle: Well, where there's honey, there are bees.
(Grizzle throws a beehive at Jean-Claude. The buzzing coming from it indicates it's full of bees. Jean-Claude rolls out of the way, and whips the beehive by grabbing the beehive, then launches the beehive right back at Grizzle.)
Grizzle: Argh! Not the bees! Not the bees! JC: Next time, don't bring a beehive to a whip fight.
(The bees start attacking Grizzle.)
Chase: I bet that stings.
Ivan: I owe you for 800 years of captivity. Fury: I used all that time to become a better fighter. You were just trapped inside me.
(Fury swings his sword, disarming Ivan. Ace is doing well against Wrench.)
Ace: What’s the matter, tin man? Can’t find your oil can? Wrench: I have no idea what you're talking about, Diamond Ranger.
(Ace fires a blast with his Morpher, sending Wrench flying. Jean-Claude, seeing that Ace doesn't need help, starts heading for Fury.)
Chase: Three on one, Fury. Odds aren’t in your favor. JC: Ace, I think we can handle this for now. Go look for your zord. Ace: Alright. I'll look high and low. Well, mostly high, since it flies.
(Ace takes off, looking upwards. (Soon after Ace leaves, the Magna Beam hits Grizzle, and the Rangers have a giant bear problem.)
Grizzle: Now I can really roar! Chase: You think your Zord can handle that, mate? JC: Pretty sure we're going to find out.
(Jean-Claude pulls out a Dino Charger.)
JC: Bronto Zord! Dino Drive!
(Jean-Claude throws it into the air, summoning the Bronto. Jean-Claude then moves inside.)
Grizzle: I’m ready for Round two.
(Grizzle throws a giant glob of honey at the Bronto Zord. The Bronto Zord gets caught in the honey. It roars.)
JC: Come on, Bronto, I know you can get out of this.
(The Bronto Zord roars again. It seems to use all of its strength, and pulls itself out of the honey.)
Grizzle: You're still sticky, have a dirt bath.
(Grizzle scoops up massive handfuls of dirt and throws it at Bronto Zord.)
JC: Okay, I think I might need a little help here. Bronto is strong, but he's not fast. Chase: Ivan, I'll handle Fury. You and Ptera Zord need to give JC a hand. Ivan: At once.
(Ivan leaves Fury to Chase, and puts a Dino Charger in his saber.)
Morpher: Summon Ptera Zord.
(Ivan leaps into the Ptera Zord and enters Dino Drive mode.)
Ivan: PteraZord, Megazord mode.
(Once transformed, PteraZord charges at Grizzle.)
JC: Thanks for the assist, Ivan. Ivan: It is a Knight's duty to help his comrades, Sir Jean-Claude. Grizzle: Bear versus bird, the bird always loses. Ivan: This is no bird, knave.
(PteraZord leaps over Grizzle, and grabs him from behind.)
Ivan: Your turn, Sir Jean-Claude.
(Ptera Zord shoves Grizzle towards the Bronto Zord and jumps into the air, waiting to strike if needed. The Bronto Zord roars, and swings its tail at Grizzle. Grizzle is knocked into the air, where the PteraZord delivers a finishing blow. Grizzle explodes.)
JC: Monster, extinct! Fury: I'm getting out of here, before that thing steps on me,
(Fury teleports back to a pod. The Bronto Zord roars.)
JC: Now all that's left is Inkling, wherever he landed at, and Ace's zord. Chase: And wherever Wrench went, unless he fled just like Fury.
(Elsewhere in the forest, Ace stops at the bottom of a redwood.)
Ace: This tree is so tall, I can't see anything at the top. But, it's also big enough that a Tupandactyl might be able to roost in it.
(Ace uses his tupandactyl darts as spikes, as he starts climbing the tree. Elsewhere, Tyler and the others meet up with JC< Chase and Ivan.)
Tyler: We would have been here sooner, but we had to make some calamari. JC: So that's where that attack sent him flying to. Shelby: You guys met him too, huh? Where's Ace? JC: We handled the aliens and let Ace look for his zord. Tyler: We should contact Riley and Keeper and let them know what's going on.
(Up on Sledge's ship...)
Sledge: Fury, you idiot! You not only failed to get any Energems, but now the Rangers have two more Zords! Fury: I make no excuses, Master Sledge. It was all Wrench's fault. Wrench: Sure, throw me under the ship. Poisandra: The Diamond Ranger still hasn’t found his Zord. I think we can trick him, with help from my new friend, Desira.
(A hooded female alien enters.)
Sledge: What makes her so special? Poisandra: She takes whatever, or whoever, a person desires most, and uses it to manipulate them. Sledge: If she brings me the Diamond energem, we'll get married tomorrow. Poisandra: You hear that, Desira? Bring us the energem, and you can be my maid of honor. Desira: I won’t fail. I've never failed.
(Desira heads to the surface. Back in the forest, Tyler and the others have contacted Riley.)
Tyler: We've found two Zords. Quatra's and JC's. Ace is looking for his now. Riley (v/o): That's great.
(An alarm is heard in the background.)
Riley (v/o): Alien DNA about three miles north of your location. Chase: That's the direction Ace was headed. Tyler: We'd better see if he needs a hand. Quatra: Let's go. JC: Yeah.
(The Rangers head north. Three miles ahead, Ace is about fifteen feet off the ground.)
Ace: This climbing is not going as fast as I thought.
Voice: Help! Help!
(Ace looks down, and sees Kendall being attacked by Vivix.)
Ace: Hang on, Miss Morgan.
(Ace starts climbing back down, unaware this isn’t the real Kendall. When he's about ten feet off the ground, Ace just drops down. He quickly holsters his darts and draws his Morpher, aiming at the Vivix.)
Ace: Go ahead, make my day.
(Ace fires, getting rid of the Vivix. He notices Kendall is in the same formal attire she was wearing earlier.)
Ace: didn’t make it to that fund raiser? "Kendall": No, thanks to Sledge. Those Vivix made sure I didn’t make it. They brought me out here as part of a trap. Ace: Odd that they brought you out here, exactly after there's Zord activity. Unless they were meeting up with Fury and Wrench. "Kendall": Well, at least you managed to save me. You should power down so I can thank you properly. Ace (thinking): This is what I’ve been waiting for since Shelby started working at the museum, and even more so since I became a Ranger.
(Ace powers down, expecting to be kissed. The other soon arrive, and notice what's going on.)
JC: Ace, it's a trap! Quatra (to JC): I don't think he sees what we see. Ace: Whoa, there, Admiral Ackbar, what do you mean? I just saved Miss Morgan from Vivix who kept her from making it to the fund raiser. C: It's not Miss Morgan. Ace: Of course it is. She's wearing exactly what she was wearing when she left the lab. (thinking) Maybe he's just jealous she wants to kiss me and not him. JC: I guess he's not going to listen until we show him proof. (pauses) I bet I know how we can do it.
(Jean-Claude pulls out his cell phone from his pocket.)
Chase: I don’t know if you'll get service out here, mate.
(Ace closes his eyes, waiting for a kiss. Desira can't reach for his Energem with the other Rangers there. Jean-Claude aims his cell phone at "Kendall" and Ace, then takes a picture. He then looks at the photo. The photo shows Desira's hooded form, exactly as the other Rangers see her.)
"Kendall": Maybe we should go someplace with more privacy,,, Arnie.
JC: Before you do that, you might want to look at this, Ace. Ace: I think you're just jealous. Shelby: No, listen to him, Ace. JC: Why would I be jealous? Ace: That she wants to kiss me and not you. Koda; That not Kendall. That alien. JC: I don't even like her like that. I'm trying to show you proof about who you're really seeing. Ace: Fine, show me, but, I'm seeing our boss, ready to thank me for saving her from Vivix.
(Jean-Claude holds up his cell phone to Ace, to show him the picture.)
Ace: Is that a new app? Or some sort of filter? Because that looks nothing like Miss Morgan. JC: I told you, it's not her. I just used my camera. It's an alien.
(Ace shakes his head, and sees Desira for what she really is.)
Ace: You definitely aren’t Kendall. JC: Told you. Desira: If the rest of you hadn’t shown up, I would have had his Energem by now. And my kiss would have left him comatose. Voice: And I would be getting ready for my wedding.
(Poisandra fires a blast at JC's phone. Jean-Claude quickly dodges.)
JC: Like I'd have my phone get trashed. You know how much these things cost? Poisandra: Do you know what it's like to wait sixty-five million years to get married? Trust me, it's no picnic. JC: By that time, I'd probably not bother if it hasn't happened already. Shelby: I would say you would be way too old by then, but, with our energems, as long as the Earth is still around, we'll still be around. JC: Yeah.
(Desira reaches for Ace's energem, but Ace grabs it first. As he does, a loud screech is heard from above.)
Chase: What's that? Shelby: I bet it's Ace's Zord. After all, it flies.
(A massive shadow passes over the Rangers, as the Tupandactyl Zord flies overhead.)
Quatra: Looks like it's here to be claimed. Ace: Alright. OK, Tuppy, take care of these aliens.
(The Zord screeches, and fires at Poisandra and Desira.)
Desira: Hold your Zord's attack, or your friends will pay. Ace: What do you mean? Desira: This.
(Desira removes her hood. She's a Gorgon, with snakes for hair. She looks at the other Rangers. Quatra turns to stone. Koda is also turned to stone. Tyler, Shelby, Chase and Ivan look away. Jean-Claude wasn't prepared for it, so he's also turned to stone.)
Tyler: Great, We're four Rangers down now. Ace: Hold your fire, Tuppy.
(The Zord stops attacking.)
Ace: How do we get them back to normal? Desira: By giving me your energems? Then, I can restore them. Ivan: I will not make a deal with a monster. Ace: And if I just chop off your head, like Perseus did to Medusa? Desira: They might be restored, or they might shatter. Ace: An impossible decision to make. Chase: No, it isn’t. And I know what will restore them.
(Chase quickly fires at Desira, destroying her. The petrified Rangers are returned to normal.)
Quatra: Thanks, Chase. Ace: How'd you know that would work? Chase: From that creep Cavity. Remember what he did to me, and it was undone when he was destroyed. Tyler: Let's get out of here before Sledge uses the Magna Beam on her.
JC: Might be a good idea.
(The Rangers leave. Up in orbit...)
Poisandra: Are you going to use the Magna beam? Sledge: No. She said she wouldn’t fail, and look what happened. So, no Magna beam for her, and no wedding tomorrow for you.
(Fury just laughs as Poisandra storms off the bridge. Half an hour later, the Rangers return to the lab.)
Tyler: Three Zords found. And three of Sledge's monsters rendered extinct. Quatra: A good day for us. Keeper: Indeed it is. Ace: It would have been a perfect day, if that hadn’t been a monster and not...
(Kendall enters the lab, returning from the fundraiser.)
Chase: You were saying, mate? Ace: Oh, nothing.
(Ace just sighs as he looks at Kendall. Quatra sighs.)
JC: So, how'd the fund raiser go, Miss Morgan? Kendall: Not as successful as I would have liked. Koda: That too bad, Kendall. Kendall: So, anything exciting happen while I was busy? Tyler: Ace, JC and Quatra all found their Zords. Kendall: Excellent. I should begin seeing if there are ways for them to combine with the other Zords. And we can begin looking for the remaining four Energems, JC: Sounds like a plan to me. Quatra: That it does.
(Ace heads back upstairs, hoping the others don’t notice. Jean-Claude looks to where Ace was, and notices he's missing, but he says nothing.)
Kendall: Now that we have three more Zords found, Sledge will try harder than ever to get the remaining energems. Keeper: Indeed, Quatra. Once we have found the Graphite, Silver, Aqua and Purple energems, Sledge will have less of a chance f obtaining them, and may very well leave Earth alone. JC: I don't think we can really do anything about finding them that much, unless we make that device again that Fury destroyed. Shelby: We can still look based on where certain dinosaur fossils have been found. JC: And maybe look for any rumors about them, or if there's rumors of other Rangers out there. Tyler: Good idea. If any of the Energems have bonded with anyone, there would be Rangers around. Kendall: You've all had a busy day. Go home and get some sleep.
(Jean-Claude looks in Quatra's direction, before he starts to head for the stairs. Koda heads into his cave. Upstairs, Ace is tidying up in the gift shop, to save him work in the morning. Quatra looks at JC and heads upstairs. Jean-Claude is getting ready to leave the museum, but notices Ace in the gift shop from outside. Ace is focused on his work, and doesn't see him. Jean-Claude enters the gift shop.)
JC: I thought you left. Ace: Huh? Oh. No, I didn't leave. I just needed some time alone. (pauses) My feelings almost cost us my energem today. JC: Not just that, but you don't have to blame yourself. Ace: I just wish I knew that if I told her how I feel that it wouldn’t change the team dynamic. Besides, she's our boss. She might say such a relationship is against museum policy. Not to mention she's a little cold. The only one of us who gets to use her first name is Koda. JC: That's more likely because, unlike the rest of us, he's pretty much the oldest one here. Ace: Chronologically, yes, and then Ivan. Physically, he seems to be about the same age as the rest of us. And there's another reason a relationship with her might not work out. The energems keep us from aging. I'll be forever 18, and she'll start getting older. JC: Well, you'll never really know how she's going to feel unless you just tell her. You going around in circles like this, not knowing how she feels, is exactly why you were so easy to be tricked by that alien, because you didn't want to believe it was a fake. Ace: And what about you? I’ve seen the way you look at Quatra. Are you going to tell her? JC: I'm kind of trying to think of the best way to tell her. Ace: The best way is to just be yourself. That's who I’ve asked out the girls I’ve dated. Except one, since we had already known each other for a while. And that date wasn't my best one. JC: Well, I know that I'm going to be myself. I've just been trying to tell her, when most of the time we're in a life threatening situation. I didn't think it was important to be bringing it up then. Ace: Try and find her before she gets too far. I doubt Sledge is going to attack us anymore tonight. And if you're wondering about that one date I was talking about, it was with Shelby. JC: Yeah, I figured that's who you were talking about. Anyway, take your own advice, too. You should go talk to her about the same thing.
(Jean-Claude leaves the gift shop. Ace just sighs, and finishes cleaning up the gift shop. Jean-Claude starts heading for the museum exit. He's looking for Quatra, but isn't sure if she's gone already. Ace turns off the lights and locks up the gift shop, just as Kendall comes up from the lab. Quatra is at the museum exit.)
Quatra: Yes, Jean-Claude? JC: Quatra. I… thought you were gone already. I'm glad that isn't the case. Quatra: I was about to go home and rest. JC: Yeah, I was going to do that too. Want to walk together until we part ways?
JC: Great. I kind of had something I wanted to talk about, anyway.
(Jean-Claude opens the museum door for Quatra to go through first, before he follows her out. Quatra heads out.)
Quatra: What was it? JC: Well, I've been trying to say this for awhile, but haven't had much of a chance to do so because of us being busy with Ranger stuff. (pauses) I was actually hoping that we could try going out on a date sometime? Quatra: Maybe when we aren't both busy. JC: Now we have a breather, but not really enough time for a date. So for the moment, we can just walk together, like I said. Quatra: True.
(Jean-Claude decides to not say much else for the moment, and walks with Quatra. Back inside...)
Kendall: Good night, Ace. Ace: Uh, Miss Morgan, there's something I have to tell you. Kendall: What is it? Ace: One of Sledge's monsters almost got my Energem today. She tricked me, into thinking she was someone I have feelings for. Very strong feelings. Kendall: I know Shelby is one of your closest friends. Ace: It wasn’t Shelby. Kendall: Another girl from one of your classes? Ace: No. No one from school. Kendall: Quatra? Ace: No, although I know someone else has feelings for her. Kendall: As long as the alien didn’t get your energem, there's nothing to worry about. Ace: Well, the thing is, the person the alien turned into was... you. Kendall: Me? Ace: Yes. I've always been attracted to smarter girls. And you're about as smart as they come in Amber beach. Kendall: I suppose I should be flattered, but, it just wouldn’t work. I'm your employer. Not to mention the fact that you have an energem and I don’t. Ace: I know. You'll keep maturing and I'll always be 18. Kendall: And there’s another reason, our current age difference, Ace: You're only 26, that's eight years older than me. Hardly robbing the cradle. Kendall: Still, its best we keep our relationship as it is. Employer/employee and Ranger/mentor. Ace: I expected as much. Good night, Miss Morgan.
(On Sledge's ship, Wrench is working on something for Sledge.)
Wrench: Sledge is going to be so pleased with me. Now, for the final step. There.
(Sledge and Poisandra enter, along with an alien called Smokescreen.)
Wrench: Oh! It's you. Sledge: Is the explosive finished? Wrench: Yes, sir.
(Poisandra reaches for the explosive.)
Wrench: Don't touch that! One wrong move could blow a hole in the ship. Poisandra: That would mess up my manicure. Sledge: Take Smokescreen with you, then hide it, so it destroys the rangers. Wrench: I can do this by myself. Smokescreen: Nonsense. I can fart out some fog so no one can see us.
(Smokescreen demonstrates his abilities.)
Smokescreen: Putting me in charge is the right choice, Master Sledge. Wrench: He did not put you and your stinky fog in charge. Smokescreen: Overgrown windup toy. You think you've-- Sledge: Enough. Bring me an Energem and you'll be free, but fail me and... Smokescreen: Say no more. Wrench: Come on. But, I'll carry this.
(Wrench grabs the explosive.)
Sledge: Goodbye, Rangers.
(Down at the museum, Kendall and Riley are discussing an event at the museum for kids.)
Kendall: Now remember, each kid gets a sifter, a safari hat and a shovel, and oh, let's see, what about food? Riley: Hey, hey, hey... Deep breaths. It's all taken care of. The event's gonna be great, Miss Morgan. Kendall: I know. I'm a little stressed out but kids look forward to the museum's fossil fun day all year. Kendall: Now let's go over everything again.
(Riley sighs, outside, most of the other Rangers are loading a truck.)
Chase: Koda, could you hand me that rope? Thanks mate. Tyler: That is everything. Koda: Almost ready to go.
(Tyler and Shelby walk over by his jeep._
Tyler: Shelby, wait, wait, wait. Look. I got that coat we saw in the store window.
(Tyler puts on a trench coat.)
Tyler: What do you think? Shelby: It's... fine. Tyler: Fine? But you said it looked great. Shelby: It did. On the mannequin. Tyler: What?
(A boy walks over.)
Boy: Your truck is really cool. Tyler: Thanks. At least someone around here has good taste. It has a five-ton winch, V8 engine and three...
(The sound of a horse is heard.)
Tyler: What in the...?
(Ivan rides up, in his full armor.)
Boy: Whoa! Koda: Ivan? Shelby: He's like something out of a romance novel. Tyler: You have got to be kidding me. Chase: Mate, he's literally a knight in shining armor. Ace: JC said he was looking for a new horse. Looks like he found one. He also asked me if the gift shop sold gauntlets, capes and a sheath for his sword.
(Ivan draws his sword.)
Ivan: I come prepared for battle!
(People gather around and start taking pictures.)
Ivan: Digital portraits, eh? All right.
(Wrench and Smokescreen are nearby.)
Wrench: There's the Red Ranger's car. Go plant the bomb. Smokescreen: First, let me fart out some fog! Wrench: No! They'll see us, you nitwit. I'll tell you when to fart. Smokescreen: Hey! I'm in charge! I'll fart when I want to. Now, go put this in Red Ranger's car! Wrench: Me? You go! Smokescreen: Come on. We don't have all day. Wrench: Okay, okay.
(Wrench carries the bomb over to Tyler's jeep.)_
Wrench: Better I do it myself, anyway. That idiot would only stink up the operation. This will blow up the rangers and everything in sight.
(Wrench hides the bomb in the back of the jeep.)
Smokescreen: Look at that fool. He could never be in charge.
(Kendall and Riley come outside, and see Ivan. Ace heads back into the museum, trying to avoid Kendall after their conversation the night before. JC sees this, and follows him.)
Kendall: Oh, good grief. (to the crowd) Nothing to see here, folks. The museum entrance is right over there.
(The crowd disperses.)
Ivan: Good day, peasants. Have fun.
(Kendall walks over to the Rangers.)
Kendall: I think we need to get some clothes for Ivan that are a tad less... medieval. Shelby: I can take you shopping. Ivan: 'Twould be a pleasure, milady. Allow me.
(Van helps Shelby up onto his horse. Tyler just scoffs.)
Ivan: A brisk gallop through the woods is now in order. Tyler: Dude, you're just going to the mall. Ivan: Why don't you take the others in your motorized buggy and we'll meet you at the park.
(Ivan and Shelby ride off.)
Tyler: My... buggy?
(Tyler gets in his jeep.)
Smokescreen: He's getting in the car. It's just a matter of time and then, boom! Wrench: How long did you set the timer for? Smokescreen: You were supposed to set the timer. Wrench: Me? You said you< were in charge.
(The Rangers head for the park.)
Wrench: There they go. We have to set that bomb or Sledge will destroy us! Come on!
(Inside the museum, Ace is at work in the gift shop when JC comes in.)
Ace: Shouldn’t you have gone with the others? JC: I could say the same for you. Any reason why you stayed here? Ace: Yeah. Last night, after we got back from finding our Zords, I told Miss Morgan how I feel about her. JC: And? Ace: Just as I expected. She brought up the whole Energem thing, and the fact that she's my employer. (sighing) if it weren’t for my other duties, Id just quit. But, where else could I get a job where Id be able to leave when we have to fight Sledge. JC: Good point. Well, things went better for me with Quatra. We've got to work out the details, but, we're going to go out sometime. Ace: At least someone came out a winner last night. JC: She might always change her mind. Just, don’t try to make it too obvious you're trying to influence her. Ace: Alright.
(Later, at the park, the museum's annual Fossil Fun Day is underway. Tyler is handing out hats, pails and shovels to the kids. Aside from Ivan and Shelby, Ace and JC are the only Rangers not there.)
Tyler: Hello, how you doing today? Here's a hat for you. And here's one for you.
(Riley and Chase are serving hot dogs, while Kendall is in the sand, with a young girl.)
Kendall: Hey, hey, hey. That is a hat. Not a bucket.
(The girl responds by blowing a raspberry at Kendall. Back at the entrance...)
Tyler: Here you are. A shovel and a hat, good luck. Watch out, it's a bit muddy right here. Leaky sprinklers.
(Ivan and Shelby arrive. Ivan is wearing the same trench coat that Tyler bought.)
Koda: Ivan, you look fancy. Ivan: I know. It's very nice. Chase: Yeah, looking suave, my man. Ivan: It was my lady who chose my new wardrobe. Tyler: Hey. Isn't that my jacket? Shelby: Yeah. Doesn't it look great? Ivan: I humbly admit. I do wear it well.
(An older woman arrives.)
Tyler: Oh, Ivan? Could you help this kind lady? Ivan: Oh, 'twouldst be my honor.
(Ivan escorts the woman into the park.)
Tyler: Careful, she'll ruin her shoes in the mud. Ivan: Not while a knight of Zandar stands at her side.
(Ivan takes off his new coat and places it over the mud.)
Woman: Such a gentleman. Ivan: Chivalry is not dead, milady.
(Tyler encourages a crowd to enter while Ivan's coat is on the ground.)
Tyler: Hurry on in, folks, step right up, keep moving, courtesy of the knight of Zandar, this way.
(A large group, including two large dogs being walked, all tread over Ivan's coat.)
Ivan: Well played, Sir Tyler. Well, played indeed.
(The two of them walk off, leaving the other Rangers at the entrance.)
Shelby: Where's Ace? Chase: I haven’t seen him or JC since before we left the museum. Riley: I think Ace went back inside when Miss Morgan and I came out. I don’t know where JC went.
Wrench: I can't believe you didn't set the timer. There's the red ranger's car. Now we need your disgusting fog. Smokescreen: And you thought you could do this alone. Good thing I ate beans.
(Smokescreen does his thing, and his odorous emissions fill the park.)
Man: Oh, that's gross. Oh, man, where's that smell coming from? Chase: Ugh, that stinks. Shelby: This fog is... red. Tyler: Anyone see where it's coming from? Riley: Yeah, I think it's coming from the parking lot. Kendall: Check it out.
(The Rangers head towards the fog. In the middle of it, Wrench and Smokescreen continue to argue.)
Smokescreen: Hey! Don't touch that. I'm in charge, remember? Wrench: Be my guest. But if you mess it up, it's kablooie! Smokescreen: Like I said, hurry up and set the timer.
(Wrench sets the timer for 10 minutes. It starts counting down.)
Wrench; It's ready. Let's go!
(The Rangers arrive.)
Shelby: Look, monsters! Ivan: Halt, scoundrels!
(Smokescreen makes the fog even thicker.)
Smokescreen: Smell you later!
Shelby: Ew! Chase: Oh, that's rank! Shelby: That smells so bad! Ivan: I'm lost in the fog! Tyler: I'll take care of it! Ivan: No need!
(Ivan grabs someone.)
Ivan: I've got him I say! Surrender, you menace!
(Unfortunately, it’s neither Wrench nor Smokescreen.)
Tyler: It's me! Get off. Ivan: Yes, hmm.
(Ivan has pulled the right sleeve off Tyler's coat.)
Ivan: Uh, ahem. Tyler: Great, you've ruined my jacket. Ivan: Well, actually, it suits you rather well now. Shelby: While you two were messing around, you didn't happen to see where the monsters went, did you?
(Tyler and Ivan both talk at the same time.)
Riley: There they are, come on, let's go!
(The Rangers begin their pursuit.)
Chase: Whatever happened to teamwork? Tyler: I got this! Ivan: No, I do! Tyler: I'll beat you there!
(While the Rangers are after Wrench and Smokescreen, the bomb remains in Tyler's jeep, still undetected, with 8 minutes and 20 seconds left, and counting. Nearby...)
Wrench: Get to the ship before that bomb blows up half the city! It's my pod! Smokescreen: No time to argue! We'll both go in it! Wrench: I'll just get in first!
(Wrench knocks Smokescreen down, then gets in the pod, and departs.)
Smokescreen: Hey! What do you think you're doing? You forgot about me! Oh! Being a leader is so lonely.
(The Rangers have arrived.)
Smokescreen: What? Ivan: Halt, alien toad wart. Running from us will not be your salvation. Tyler: Whatever that means. It's Morphin'-- Ivan: Put a little bit of pizzazz into it, Sir Tyler. Let me show you how it's done.
(While Tyler and Ivan are butting heads like a couple of goats, Kendall, calls.)
Kendall (v/o): Did you find anything? Shelby: Uh, everything's under control, Ms. Morgan. Smokescreen: Oh, morph already! Ivan & Tyler: Dino Charger! All: Ready! Morpher: Dino Chargers, engage! All: Energize, ha! Unleash the power!
(The Rangers morph.)
Tyler: This what you wanted? Smokescreen: One against... seven?
(Ace and JC finally arrive.)
Ace: Make that nine.
Tyler: Power Rangers, charge! Tyrannosaurus Rex! Power Ranger Red! Chase: Parasaur! Power Ranger Black! Koda: Stegosaurus! Power Ranger Blue! Riley: Velociraptor! Power Ranger Green! Shelby: Triceratops! Power Ranger Pink! Ace: Tupandactylus! Power Ranger Diamond! JC: Brontosaurus! Power Ranger Brown! Ivan: Pterodactyl! Power Ranger Gold! All: Dinosaur might, ready to fight! Tyler: Power Rangers! All: Dino Charge! Smokescreen: Vivix! Attack! Ivan: They're about to encounter the fury of the Gold Ranger! Tyler: Yeah, but only after things get wild with the Red Ranger! Smokescreen: Destroy them all!
(While the Rangers charge at the Vivix, the bomb keeps counting down. It now has 6 minutes and 30 seconds left.)
Smokescreen: Attack! Ivan: I shall destroy thee, Smokescreen! Tyler: Not if I destroy him first! Morpher: T-Rex Charger, engage! Tyler: Dino Steel! All: Armor on!
(Chase leaps off a large crane to attack from above.)
Chase: Para chopper Blast! Koda: Stego Shield Block! Stego Shield Punch! Riley: Time for... Raptor Claw! Shelby: Tricera drill! Ace: Tupandactyl Darts! Like popping balloons at the carnival. Shelby: That's hot!
(Tyler is attacking Smokescreen.)
Smokescreen: I'm more than just fog, see?
(Smokescreen starts to electrify Tyler with a shock attack.)
Tyler: A little help!
(Ivan slices through a few Vivix.)
Ivan: Rest in pieces!
(He sees Tyler's predicament.)
Ivan: What's this? Don't fret! A true warrior has arrived!
(Tyler slips out of Smokescreen's attack.)
Tyler: I'll show you a true warrior! Smokescreen: Let's see what you've got, rangers! Ivan: Careful, Tyler, you might get hurt!
(Ivan rolls over Tyler.)
Tyler: Hey, get off my back!
(Smokescreen is knocked down, but Tyler is still weak from his attack,)
Ivan: Sir Tyler! Tyler: Look, Ivan... I can't compete with the shining armor and the horse, but we have to work together. Ivan: It's true. I am the whole package. But you, sir, are the Red Ranger. How can I compare to that? Tyler: Thanks. Ivan: Let's dispose of this stinking scallywag... together. Tyler: Awesome. Let's do it! Smokescreen: You've had smoke. Here's fire!
(Smokescreen blasts the two of them, but they avoid it)
Tyler: All right, Ivan! Let's take him!
(Tyler and Ivan send Smokescreen flying, landing atop a mound of gravel.)
Smokescreen: It's all going downhill! Tyler: Let's finish him as a team!
(Each Ranger takes a turn attacking Smokescreen.)
Smokescreen: I've got to get 'em back to that bomb in the car. Then they'll blow up with everything else in the park! Tyler: A bomb? Smokescreen: Oops! Koda: Oh, no! Smokescreen: Who said bomb? I didn't say bomb. Riley: That's what they were doing to Tyler's car. Tyler: Let's help get him out of this city... permanently! Ivan: I'm with you, Red Ranger! Tyler: Dino Charger, ready! Morpher: Ptera Charger, engage! Tyler: Weapons combine! Morpher: Dino Spike Charger, engage! All: Red Ranger, launch!
(Tyler holds the underside of the Dino Spike, while Ivan rides atop it, like a surfboard.)
Tyler: Dino Spike! Final Strike! Ivan: Lightning! Final Strike! Smokescreen: I feel a bit foggy!
Tyler: That was awesome! Ivan: Quite so! Shelby: We have to stop that bomb now! Ace (thinking): She may not want to be with me, but I still have to save Kendall.
(Back in the park, one boy is carrying off two large bones.))
Kendall: You get one bone, not a whole dinosaur!
(Kendall goes after him, just as her communicator beeps.)
Shelby: (v/o): Miss Morgan! Miss Morgan, are you there? Hello?
(The bomb now has 4 minutes left. Up in orbit...)
Sledge: I'm done fooling around with you, Rangers. Magna Beam!
(A Vivix fires the Magna Beam, restoring smokescreen.)
Koda: We have to get bigger. Tyler: I'll pilot the Megazord and handle Smokescreen. The rest of you, defuse that bomb. Tyler, Koda, Shelby: Dino Chargers, ready! Summon Zords! Morpher: T-Rex Charger, engage! Zords, combine! Dino Charge Megazord, ready! Tyler: Dino Drive, activate! Battle mode, engage! Time from some Stego power! Morpher: Stego Saber! Tyler (to the others): Go defuse that bomb! Shelby: Right!
(The other Rangers head back to the park. Ivan pauses.)
Ivan: I have an idea! Yes!
(Smokescreen creates more fog.)
Smokescreen: Enjoying the stench? Tyler: Ugh, that stinky fog is pretty thick. Smokescreen: Let's see how tough you are when smoke gets in your eyes. Serpent's Transformation!
(Smokescreen transforms into a giant snake.)
Tyler: Whew, It's not my eyes I'm worried about. It's my nose!
(Smokescreen slithers around the Megazord, knocking it down.)
Smokescreen: You're lost in a fog, Red Ranger. Now, to destroy you!
(Tyler gets the Megazord back on its feet, as something flies through the fog.)
Tyler: Is that... the Ptera Zord!
(Indeed, it is.)
Ivan: Sir Tyler, just as we must work together, so must our Megazords! Tyler: Sounds like a plan. Both: Activate Tri-Stego Ptera Formation! Morpher: Zords, combine! Dino Charge Mega Zord, Tri-Stego Ptera Formation! Ready.
(The PteraZord becomes a winged backpack for the Megazord, which dons a new, bird-like helmet.)
Tyler: Nice to have you riding at my side, Ivan. Ivan: I believe it is time to slay this dragon.
(Back at the park, two boys are using their shovels like swords, much to Kendall’s dismay.)
Kendall: Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey. Please. Those are shovels. Not toys. Don't mess with me, kid. Would you stop! No, not you, too. Come on.
(The Rangers, now powered down, arrive.)
Shelby: Everybody look around. Ace: I think Miss Morgan could use a hand. Besides, I don’t know anything about disarming a bomb. I only saw Speed once. Didn’t really like it.
(Ace goes over to disarm the shovel warriors.)
Riley: I found it. There was less than two minutes left. Shelby: Let's move it away from these people!
(Riley picks up the bomb.)
Shelby: Slowly! Careful, careful.
(Up in orbit...)
Sledge: Rangers... Wrench: Master, grow the bomb so they can't move it! Sledge: Hit it with the Magna Beam, now!
(The Magna Beam is fired again.)
Chase: Watch out!
(The bomb grows larger.)
Chase: We have to evacuate! Now!
(Sledge watches, laughing.)
Sledge: That's gonna blow up the entire city!
(Unaware of the new problem with the bomb, Tyler and Ivan continue fighting Smokescreen.)
Both: Stego Slash! Tyler: Your fighting stinks as bad as you smell!
(Smokescreen is slashed several times, before the Megazord takes him airborne.)_
Tyler: Time to stomp this!
(The Megazord slams Smokescreen through a mountain.)
Tyler: Hold on! Smokescreen: Get off me! Ivan: As you wish!
(The Megazord leaps up, as Smokescreen changes back to normal.)
Both: Stego Saber! Final... Slash!
(The powerful attack strikes.)
Smokescreen: But Wrench was in charge!
Tyler: Monster, extinct!
(Back at the park…)
Koda: Hurry! Shelby: Out! Everyone must evacuate! Thank you, as fast as you can, thank you.
(The bomb has 1 minute left.)
Chase: Tyler, we got less than a minute on the clock and a bomb that's too big to move. Ivan: I have an idea. Tyler: Me too! I bet it' the same one. Guys, we're on our way!
(Back on the ground...)
Chase: What could they be planning?
(The Megazord swoops in and carries off the bomb.)
Koda: Where they going?
(The Megazord flies higher.)
Ivan: Shall we offer it back to the fiend who sent it? Tyler: Perfect! Both: Let's go!
(On Sledge's ship...)
Sledge: I need an update. Wrench: In a manner of seconds, the bomb won't just take out the rangers... Sledge: It will destroy all of Amber Beach! Poisandra: You mean that bomb? Sledge: Huh, what the...?
(The Megazord is approaching Sledge’s hip.)
Sledge: Fire the lasers!
(In the Megazord...)
(The bomb is pitched like a baseball at Sledge's ship.)
Wrench: That's gonna hit us! Sledge: Fire everything!
(A blast hits the bomb, causing it to explode just shy of Sledge's ship.)
Tyler: We almost got him! Ivan: But we saved the city. Nice work, Red Ranger. Tyler: Nice work, Gold Ranger. Ivan: We're more successful together.
(Back on Sledge's ship...)
Sledge: Wrench! I have no words! Actually, I do! But I can't say them with a lady present. Poisandra: Go ahead, darling. I just love it when you get angry. Wrench: That's a terrible idea! Wrench: You useless, cowardly tin headed son of a washing machine! I ought to rip you to pieces and turn you into a toilet!
(Later, back at the museum, Tyler enters the cafe with a bag.)
Koda: Tyler, what did you buy? Tyler: Nothing. Riley: Ooh! A gift. Shelby: Really? Who's it for? Tyler: No one.
(Ivan walks over, serving as a waiter today.)
Ivan: Hey! Tuna dactyl melt on rye, toasted to perfection, just as you desire. Chase: Sweet, thank you, Iv...
(But the sandwich isn’t for Chase. It's for Tyler.)
Tyler: Aww... what a nice surprise. Ivan: And grilled cheese for the rest of you. Ace: I was hoping for a bronto burger. Tyler: I, too, have a surprise. Shelby: I love surprises. Tyler: Ivan.
(Tyler hands Ivan a box, inside, a new coat, like the one Shelby picked out.)
Ivan: My cup runneth over. Tyler: You really did look good in it, so... I figured I'd replace it. Ivan: Come, let us take one of those self portraits together. Tyler: Yeah? Chase: Those two are taking a selfie? Shelby: I think I liked it better when they didn't get along. Ivan: The little light, it takes the pho... Tyler: Right, there you go. That looks so cool. Ivan: Let us do the famed duck mouth. Tyler: You read my mind.
(Ivan and Tyler take their selfies, as Koda photo bombs them.)
(On Sledge's ship, a Spikeball is retrieving a prisoner, a monster named Gold Digger.)
Spikeball: You're in luck, Gold Digger, Sledge wants to see you. Gold Digger: Okay, okay! But first let's test your luck. Heads or tails?
(Gold Digger tosses a coin.)
Spikeball: Uh, tails? No! I mean, heads. Gold Digger: Either way, you lose.
(The Spikeball catches the coin.)
Spikeball: Uh... aah...
(The coin explodes.)
Gold Digger: I'm out of here, you fools.
(Sledge arrives. accompanied by Wrench.)
Sledge: Gold Digger! Stop wasting perfectly good guards. If you want your freedom, save your tricks for the Rangers. Bring me the Energems or I'll melt you down into Poisandra's jewelry. Gold Digger: Please, Master Sledge, anything but that!
(Down on Earth, are in the woods, training. Tyler is outside, standing on his hands, while Riley and Ivan are fencing.)
Riley: Nice one.
(Koda runs through a does a flip. Ace is throwing simulated Tupandactyl Darts at a large dummy, shaped like Sledge. Shelby attacks three heavy bags, Chase, however, is fully morphed, with Kendall.)
Kendall: Okay, you ready? Chase: Miss Morgan, I agree training's important, but you want me to fly through that concrete wall? Kendall: Correct. The Dino Armor X jaws are designed to be that tough. It works with black Energem power. Chase: Okay, I'll give it a shot. Ace: That's what you're supposed to be the best at, hot shot. Chase: Dino Armor X charger, ready! Morpher: Dino Armor X charger, engage. Chase: Extreme power. Well, here I go. Spiral attack!
(Chase's attack goes through the wall, but keeps going, narrowly missing Shelby, and taking a chunk out of one of the heavy bags.)
(Chase stops when he comes back to the wall, and powers down.)
Chase: Wow! Tyler: Sweet! Chase: It works great, Kendall. I mean, Miss Morgan. Shelby: Hello!
(Shelby shows off the missing chunk.)
Chase: Ohh... sorry, Shelby. It's got more power than I realized. Shelby: Hmm. You owe me a new bag. Ace: You'd better replace it quick. Back in tenth grade, I accidentally run over her sunglasses with a lawnmower. She kept nagging me for a week and a half until I bought her new ones.
(Chase hears the music Shelby is playing on her MP3 player.)
Chase: Hey, that's the N-Zed Boys. They're from New Zealand. You're not one of those crazy fans, are you? Shelby: Uh, uh... Chase: The ones that know all the lame lyrics by heart. Who wear the N-Zed Boy T-shirts. Shelby: No. I'm not that crazy. Chase: Oh, you weren't planning on going to their concert tonight, were you? Shelby: Well, maybe. This is the first time they've ever played outside of New Zealand. Chase (singing): I'm gonna travel the world, Turn it upside down. Whoo!
(Later, back at the museum, the Rangers are at work. Most of them. Chase hasn’t shown up yet.)
Shelby: Have you seen Chase? He's an hour late for work. Koda: No.
Shelby: Chase, where have you been? I need to go get tickets for the N-Zed Boys concert tonight. Chase: No worries, I'm sure they've got heaps of tickets. They're not that popular.
(Shelby takes off her apron. She's wearing an N-Zed Boys t-shirt.)
Chase: Oh, you are one of those crazy fans!
(On the radio in the kitchen…)
DJ (v/o): That's the N-Zed Boys, the Kiwi sensation. If you were planning on seeing them tonight, too bad! They are completely sold out. Shelby: No, no! This was my one chance to see them in concert and now I've missed it. Chase: No, you're not missing anything. Trust me. Shelby: I know you think they're lame. I got that. Tyler: Hey, man, lighten up. You hurt her feelings. Chase: No, she's fine.
(The Dino-Comms chirp.)
Kendall (v/o): Alien bio-signs. Everyone head out. Tyler: Got it.
(The Rangers leave the cafe. Well, most of them. Ivan has to stay behind to deal with a customer.)
Riley: Ivan. Ivan: I shall be along forthwith.
(Soon, in the woods...)
Riley: These are definitely the coordinates that Miss Morgan gave us. I bet Sledge found our training area.
(Koda sees something on the ground.)
Koda: Oh, look!
(It's a gold coin.)
Koda: It my lucky day.
(Koda picks up the coin, and sees more.)
Koda: Another! Ace: I’ve never seen coins like those before. Shelby: Who would have left these here? Koda: It so shiny.
(But the coins aren’t shining, they're glowing.)
Chase: Take cover!
(Tyler knocks the coins into the air, as Chase pulls Koda to the ground. The coins explode. Laughter is heard. Poisandra, Wrench, Curio and Gold Digger arrive.)
Poisandra: Time for a little payback, Rangers. Gold Digger: And I've got money to burn.
(Gold Digger throws more coins at the Rangers, they move out of the way before they explode.)
Ace: I heard the price of gold was exploding, but this is ridiculous. Gold Digger: Your Energems will soon be mine. Chase: its Morphin' time! Dino Charger... All: Ready! Unleash the power.
(The Rangers morph.)
Tyler: This guy looks like a museum threw up.
(The Rangers attack Gold Digger.)
Gold Digger: You can't talk, you box of crayons. Ace: When's the last time you saw a diamond crayon? Certainly not in any box I used to use. Poisandra: That's it, give 'em their money's worth! Wrench: Are you crazy? He's useless. I'll take care of this.
(Wrench joins the battle.)
Curio: Oh, maybe we should help, too. Poisandra: Absolutely not.
Wrench: Mind if I cut in? Let me show you how it's done.
(Wrench pulls Gold Digger out of the fight and takes over.)
Gold Digger: Oh, my chest! Poisandra: Don't let that tin can push you around, Gold Digger. Get back in there and fight! Gold Digger: Yes, ma'am! Poisandra: Now! Gold Digger: Over here, Rangers.
(Gold Digger lures Riley, Chase and Koda away. Poisandra is knocked down.)
Poisandra: That treasure chest is a treasure pest. They can fight without us. Let's go watch "Guts World."
(Poisandra and Curio leave.)
Tyler: Face it, Wrench, pigs will fly before you beat us. Ace: Or it will start raining and you'll rust. Come on, just say "oil can". Wrench: Oh, yeah? Well, watch me fly!
(Wrench jumps up and attacks, knocking Tyler and Ace down.)
Wrench: Now I can get those Energems.
(But a sword cuts off Wrench before he can get close enough.)
Wrench: The Knight! Ivan: Indeed. Tyler: Ivan. Ivan: Behold. Those damsels gave me my first tip.
(Ivan holds up a single dollar bill.)
Tyler: All that for a dollar? Ivan: I agree, most kind. Ace: Depending on where you shop. Ivan: Prepare to feel the wrath.
(The three Rangers prepare to attack Wrench. Elsewhere...)
Koda: He is trapped. Gold Digger: You're in luck. Let me spread the wealth!
(Gold Digger throws a slew of coins at the Rangers, The fly upwards, before coming back down.)
Chase: Heads up!
(The Rangers dodge the explosions again.)
Riley: Your luck's run out, moneybags. Gold Digger: Stone slab block.
(Gold Digger's slab resists each of riley's attacks.)
Riley: His slab is like steel. We need extra power. Shelby: Dino Steel Armor on! Tricera drill! Gold Digger: Stone Slab... block!
(Even Shelby's drill is no much for the slab.)
Koda: Shelby, are you okay? Gold Digger: I have to tell Wrench about this.
Gold Digger: Wrench! I know how we can beat the Rangers. Wrench: Then why aren't they destroyed? Gold Digger: I'll crush them with my stone slabs. Wrench: You'd better, or Sledge will crush you. Gold Digger: Stone Slab, multiply!
(Gold Digger throws his slab into the air, it grows, as well as multiplying.)
Tyler: No way!
(The Rangers dodge the rain of slabs.)
Gold Digger: Hold still! You can't escape my slabs forever. Chase: Don't worry, guys, I can break through his slabs with the Dino Armor X jaws. Dino Charger ready! Morpher: Dino Armor X charger, engage! Chase: Armor X ready. Spiral attack.
(Chase fires the attack, but nothing happens. At least, no attack.)
Chase: What's wrong? It's out of control!
(The attack goes nowhere, and the Dino Charger is ejected.)
Gold Digger: Pathetic! Stone Slab, multiply!
(More slabs start falling.)
Tyler: Get out of the way! Gold Digger: Got you this time!
(One very heavy slab lands on Tyler, Shelby and Ivan. And more start piling on.)
Tyler: We're going down.
(The pile of slabs soon becomes heave enough to push the three of them underground.)
Chase: Oh, no! Shelby, Ivan. Tyler! Gold Digger: I'll crush you into the ground like the others!
(More slabs are multiplied.)
Chase: Guys, run!
(The remaining Rangers start running.)
Chase: I think we're out of range. (into communicator) Shelby, Tyler, Ivan, are you okay? Tyler (v/o): The slab pushed us deep underground. There's a pocket of air, but it's not gonna last long. Chase: We're getting help.
(The Rangers on the surface leave.)
Tyler: Guys, don't give up.
(Back at the lab...)
Chase: We've got to hurry. I know I can save them if the Dino Armor X charger works.
(Kendall finishes her examination.)
Kendall: There's nothing wrong with it. Chase: What?! Something's definitely wrong with it. Kendall: It worked when you tested it and the transmitter says it works now. Somehow the problem is with you. Chase: You think I'm the problem? Kendall: Riley, Koda, it's a long shot, but if it won't work with black energy, maybe it will work with blue or green. I'll adjust the Dino Armor X charger. Chase: There's no way this is my fault. Keeper: The black Energem bonded with you not just for your bravery but for your heart, too. Chase: Come again? Keeper: If your energy has been disrupted by doing something not true to your heart, the Dino Charger may not work. Chase: You think I did something wrong?
(The communicators chirp.)
Shelby (v/o): Guys... I think... our air... it's almost gone. Kendall: Their oxygen levels are near critical. We're out of time. I don't know if these will work without black energy but it's our only chance. Keeper: Your friends' lives are in your hands. Time is of the essence, Rangers.
(The Rangers head back to the forest.)
Chase: Ace and I'll cover you while you try your Dino Armor X chargers. Koda: Okay.
(Wrench and Gold Digger are waiting for them.)
Wrench: Here to free your friends, Rangers? Gold Digger: Don't hold your breath. Chase: Ace and I'll keep them off you.
(Ace and Chase charge at them.)
Riley: Let's hope it works with blue and green energy. Riley & Koda: Dino Chargers, ready! Morpher: Dino Armor X charger, engage. Riley: Armor X...
(The two of them fire, but nothing happens.)
Riley: Dino Armor X must only work with black energy. You must save them. Koda: We take monsters.
(Riley and Koda join Ace in battle.)
Chase: I have to figure this out. Huh... huh?
(Chase's communicator chirps.)
Shelby (v/o, weak): Please... I think... we're running out... Chase: No! Hang on, Shelby. Keeper said I've done something to disrupt my energy. What could I have done?
(Chase remembers what he said to Shelby about the N-Zed Boys.)
Chase: That's it! (into communicator) Shelby, I shouldn't have teased you so much about liking the N-Zed Boys. I didn't mean to hurt your feelings, but I did. And that threw off my energy so the Dino Armor X charger didn't work. Shelby (v/o, weak): That's okay, Chase. Chase: No, it's-- it's not okay. I'm sorry.
(Shelby passes out.)
Chase: Shelby? Shelby! Dino Armor X is their only chance.
(Riley, Koda and Ace are sent flying.)
Chase: I won't let you down, Shelby. Please work. Dino Charger, ready! Morpher: Dino Armor X charger, engage!
(Chase successfully summons the Dino Armor X jaws.)
Chase: Hah! It worked! Armor X, ready! Wrench: You're never getting past me, Black Ranger.
(Wrench tosses his axe to Chase, but the Dino Armor X deflects it.)
Wrench: What? Gold Digger, get over here! Chase: Nothing's stopping me. Spiral attack!
(Chase launches a spiral attack, knocking down Wrench and Gold Digger.)
Chase: I've got to save Shelby, Ivan, and Tyler. Spiral drill.
(Chase puts his Morpher right on the top slab and fires, boring downward.)
Wrench: He's dug right through your slabs.
(Chase bores down through at least 20 slabs before reaching the others. He brings Shelby up to the surface, with Tyler and Ivan being dragged up by the velocity of Chase's ascent.)
Chase: I've got you. Koda: They all right. Chase: I'm sorry you missed the concert. Can you ever forgive me? Shelby: I already have. Riley: Thank goodness you guys are okay. Koda: We very worried. Wrench: Yikes! They got out. More slabs! Gold Digger: You make it so easy. Chase: Haven't you learned your lesson? It's Morphin' time!
(Chase, Tyler, Shelby and Ivan morph.)
Gold Digger: This time I'll bury you! Tyler: Not if we bury you first! Tyrannosaurus Rex, Power Ranger Red. Chase: Parasaur, Power Ranger Black. Koda: Stegosaurus, Power Ranger Blue. Riley: Velociraptor, Power Ranger Green. Shelby: Triceratops, Power Ranger Pink. Ace: Tupandactylus, Power Ranger Diamond. JC: Brontosaurus, Power Ranger Brown. Ivan: Pterodactyl, Power Ranger Gold! All: Dinosaur might, ready to fight! Tyler: Power Rangers... All: Dino Charge! Wrench: You wish you would stay underground. Gold Digger: Vivix, get the Rangers now!
(The Rangers easily fight their way through the Vivix. But Gold Digger's stone slab is more than Tyler's T-Re Smash can handle.)
Chase: All right, tin man, you're about to get recycled. Ace: I hope you got your heart from the wizard. JC: You need to come up with some new references. Ace: I go with what works. Wrench: Your new powers won't stop me. Chase: Oh, please. Fighting you is easier than a spin class with training wheels. Wrench: I don't get it. What's a spin class? Chase: I'll give you a demonstration.
(Chase has his Morpher point blank against Wrench.)
Chase: Spiral... Wrench: No, no, no! Chase: ...attack!
(Wrench starts spinning, before he's sent flying away. Nearby...))
Gold Digger: Haven't you learned yet? You can't break my slabs. Tyler: Maybe not, but he can.
(Tyler steps out of the way.)
Chase: Spiral attack!
(Chase breaks through the slab.)
Gold Digger: That was only one slab. Chase: Guys, he's gonna multiply. Tyler, the Dino Spike. Tyler: Got it! Dino Charger, ready! Weapons combine! Morpher: Dino Spike Charger, engage! All: Red Ranger, launch!
(Tyler holds onto the Dino Spike, while Chase launches his move.)
Tyler: Dino Spike, final strike! Chase: Spiral attack!
(Chase clears the path for Tyler to finish off Gold Digger.)
Gold Digger: How unfortunate. Chase: Now that's positive energy.
(Up in orbit...)
Sledge: Gold Digger's not done yet. Give me the magna beam.
(A Vivix fires the Magna beat at Gold Digger.)
Chase: Guys, our problem just multiplied. Tyler: Oh, no! Dino Chargers... All: Ready! Morpher: T-Rex Charger, engage! Zords combine! Dino Charge Megazord ready! Ptera Charger, engage! Tupan Charger, engage! Gold Digger: Prepare to be crushed! Stone Slab, multiply!
(Stone slabs land on top of the Megazord.)
Tyler: It's too heavy! We're sinking!
(A shrieking is heard.)
Gold Digger: What's that, another Zord?
(The Ptera and Tupan Zords fly in.)
Gold Digger: I'll bury them together!
(A stone slab forces the Ptera Zord under the pile of slabs with the Megazord, before they all sink down. Only the much smaller Tupan Zord remains.)
Gold Digger: I win! I'll treasure this victory forever!
(Unfortunately, his celebration is premature.)
(The Megazord is holding on to the Ptera Zord.)
Tyler: The Ptera Zord saved us just in time! Shelby: Hah! We tricked him. Rangers: Activate Dino Charge Megazord Tri-Stego-Ptera formation! Morpher: Zords combine! Gold Digger: No! Rangers: Stego Saber! Lightning charge! Final strike! Gold Digger: I can't dig my way out of this one!
(The attack ends the glittering threat of Gold Digger.)
Tyler: Now that's a buried treasure! Shelby: Yeah! Tyler: Monster extinct.
(Up on Sledge's ship, Wrench is trying to be quiet.)
Wrench: Now, if I can just stay out of Sledge's sight for a little while longer, maybe he'll forget about how that fool--
(Unfortunately. Wrench has backed up right onto the bridge.)
Wrench: Sledge: Wrench! Aaah! Master Sledge! Sledge: You had three Energems trapped and you didn't get them? Wrench: It was all Gold Digger's fault, eh, and his stupid coins. Sledge: You useless pile of robot parts! Let me show you something.
(Sledge drags wrench to the cell bay.)
Sledge: Next time you fail me you're going into solitary confinement! Wrench: Oh-- Oh, please, no!
(A spiked tentacle reaches out of the isolation cell, grabbing for Wrench.)
Wrench: No! Leave me alone! I'm a failure Poisandra: You're so evil, Sledgeums.
(Back at the museum, Shelby, Tyler, Riley and Koda are in the kitchen, listening to the radio. They all have their phones out, as Ivan comes in.)
Ivan: What on earth are you doing? The customers, they-- Tyler: The song's about to end.
(Ivan takes out his own phone.)
DJ (v/o): It's sold out, but you can still win VIP passes to tonight's N-Zed Boys concert if you're our ninth caller! Shelby: Now!
(The Rangers start dialing, as Ace comes into the kitchen.)
DJ (v/o): The boards are lighting up. Looks like we have ourselves a winner! Hello, ninth caller? Man (v/o): I won? Whoo! Oh, my gosh! Koda: First, song make me want to punch radio. Now I love. I need concert! Ace: That voice sounded familiar. And with what could have been a New Zealand accent. DJ: (v/o): Tell me, young man, what's your name?
(Chase comes in, talking on his own phone.)
Chase: My name is Chase, mate. DJ (v/o): See you at the concert, Chase and friends. Tyler: Yes! Kendall: We're all taking the night off. Tyler: Come on, let's lock up and get out of here. Ace: You guys have fun at the concert. I'll be spending the evening with my game console. (thinking) Even though Kendall's going. Since she's already said a relationship wouldn’t work. Being that close to her in a setting outside of work, I might do something I might regret.
(The Rangers start to leave.)
Chase: Uh, hey, um... I'm really sorry again about what happened. I need to be more careful with what I say. Teasing can really hurt people's feelings. Shelby: So, does that mean you're not as perfect as you think you are? Chase: Come on, no one's perfect. But I'm as close as it gets.
(At a quarry in Zandar, an excavation is underway. It stops when a backhoe hits something, a large fossil that causes it to glow.)
Foreman: Whoa! Whoa, whoa, whoa! Hold on! This must be the one.
(At the royal palace, Prince Phillip is training with a robot.)
Robot: Attack Prince.
(The robot, which is controlled by a member of the Prince's staff, shows off its fighting moves.)
Phillip: Very nice moves. My Ranger friends will be impressed.
(Two more members of the palace staff enter, including his secretary, Margaret. One of them is carrying a large box.)
Margaret: Your Highness, they may have found the fossil you were searching for. Phillip: Everyone, please leave me.
(The staff members, and the robot, leave. The price picks up a chisel and starts to crack open the fossil.)
Phillip: This could be it.
(He soon finds what he was looking for.)
Phillip: Ah! Ah, yes! Finally...
(The Prince removes his discovery from the fossil.)
Phillip: An Energem.
(He remembers his meeting with the Rangers, after Ivan was released from Fury.)
Ivan: Trust that I will use it to make the kingdom proud.
Phillip: I too shall make the kingdom proud. Energize!
Phillip: Unleash the power!
(Again, nothing happens.)
(Up in orbit, on Sledge's ship, Fury has been paying the price for his failures.)
Fury: "Fury, empty the slop buckets. Fury, polish the prison bars." One more order, and I'll--
Poisandra: Fury! Mop this floor... now. Fury: Huh? Poisandra: And do it right this time. Why Sledge keeps you around is beyond me.
Poisandra: Don't miss a spot.
(Fury angrily starts mopping. but Poisandra is too close to solitary confinement. The tentacle reaches out and grabs her.)
Poisandra: Let go! Let go! Sledge-ums! Sledge!
(Fury starts to laugh at the predicament, before he realizes something.)
Fury: Wait-- This could be my chance to redeem myself. I'll save you, Poisandra!
(Fury goes to free Poisandra, as Sledge arrives.)
(Fury grabs a power cable, and uses it to shock the tentacle into freeing Poisandra.)
Sledge: Oh, it's all right, darling, Sledge-ums is here. (to Fury) Good work, Fury. Fury: I remain your faithful servant, Master Sledge. Sledge: Maybe you deserve another shot at destroying those Rangers. But don't screw it up! Fury: Thank you, Master.
(Fury hands his mop to Poisandra.)
Fury: Here you go, Pinky. Don't miss a spot. Poisandra: Huh? Fury: Get ready, Rangers, it's time for some revenge.
(Down at the museum, a group of children from New Zealand are performing, singing in Maori. Among them is Chase's little sister, Chloe. Chase smiles, proud her. The children finish.)
Kendall: Thank you to our visitors from New Zealand for their wonderful performance of "kapa haka" a traditional Maori dance.
(The crowd applauds. Later, Chloe and some of her friends are in the cafe, as Chase arrives.)
Chloe: Chase! Chase: Hey, Chloe.
Chase Oh, how's my favorite little sister? Wow! You've grown right out of your pants! Chloe: These are shorts. Could we go skateboarding first? Chase: Yep. You're not here for long, so, uh, let's start having fun.
(Chloe goes to get her helmet. Unfortunately, Tyler signals Chase that they have Ranger business to attend to. Ace walks through the cafe, on his way to the lab.)
Chloe: Ready. Chase: Ah, Chloe, something's come up... with work. Could we skate later? Chloe: Uh, okay, no worries. Chase: Okay, thank you.
(Chase heads into the kitchen.)
Tyler: Ivan's run into Fury. We gotta go. Ace: Maybe we haven’t seen him for a while because it was time for his flea bath? Koda: Hurry!
(Chase follows slowly, upset for having to disappoint his sister. Elsewhere, Ivan morphs.)
Ivan: Put your best paw forward, you feline fiend!
(Fury knocks Ivan backwards.)
Ivan: Well played. Fury: You beat me once, Gold Ranger, but you did not defeat me! Ivan: Perhaps not then, but you won't be so lucky today. Fury: See what you say in 800 years, after I've locked you away again!
(Their blades clash, the two are evenly matched.)
Ivan: Prepare to feel the wrath! Morpher: Ptera Charger engage. Ivan: Lightning Strike!
(Ivan's attack hits Fury, but doesn’t really show him down.)
Fury: You'll pay for that. Ivan: Time to take you down a notch, Fury.
(Their battle, which had been on a rooftop, is taken down to ground level, as the other Rangers arrive.)
Tyler: Ivan, we got you covered. Ivan: Thank you, my faithful friends. Ace: Sorry, kitty. We couldn’t find you any catnip. So, we'll have to just nip the cat instead. Ivan: Let's finish this once and for all. Fury: Vivix, arise!
(Six Vivix appear.)
(The Rangers begin to attack the Vivix.)
Ace: Am I the only one who gets bored fighting Vivix all the time? It just gets so monotonous.
(Suddenly, Prince Phillip's robot sparring partner arrives.)
Robot: Attack Vivix. Tyler: What is that thing?
(The robot begins to attack.)
Koda: It... trying to help us. Ace: OK, now this isn’t boring.
(The Robot is knocked onto its back.)
Robot: Error. Riley: Well, it's not doing a very good job, is it? Tyler: Leave it and get Fury! You too, Shelby. Fury: Vivix, get that robot!
(Two Vivix grab the robot.)
Robot: Attack Vivix. Vivix. Vivix. Vivix.
(The Robot falls down again.)
Fury: I can't fight all nine of you. Vivix, attack.
Fury: I must not fail Sledge again. I need another plan.
(The Vivix are defeated.)
Tyler: Fury's gone! Ace: He probably went to ask the Wizard for more courage. Chase: I-- I gotta get back. I can't disappoint Chloe. Koda: It okay, Chase.
(Chase leaves as the others power down. The robot is back on its feet. And trying to walk into a wall.)
Shelby: What is with this thing? Robot: Error. Error. Tyler: Where did it come from? Ace: And can I get one with what I’m making at the museum? JC: I doubt that you could.
(Tyler's question is answered with a royal arrival.)
Ivan: Prince Phillip? Shelby: Your Highness. What are you doing here? Phillip: Well, I came to speak with Koda. When I saw you were in trouble I decided to lend a hand... With my robot. Koda: This fighting machine is your-- yours? Phillip: It fought well, did it not? Ivan: Eh, twas, uh... not that helpful. Tyler: A machine just can't react the way a human Ranger can. Shelby: To be honest, it kind of sort of got in the way. Phillip: I see. Robot: Error. Error. Ace: But how would it do at, say, mowing a lawn? Phillip: I'm sorry. Shelby: It’s okay. We know you were just trying to help.
(More Vivix appear, and grab the robot.)
Robot: Error. Riley: The robot!
(The Vivix start to leave.)
Koda: They getting away!
(The Rangers and Price Phillip chase after the, but the Vivix lose them, quickly.)
Ivan: They slipped through our fingers. Phillip: They can't run it without the remote. Tyler: I hope you're right. Fury can be pretty clever. Ace: Not to mention other members of Sledge's crew.
(Up on the ship...)
Wrench: I was able to bypass the remote control. I programmed it to automatically target the Rangers. Fury: I'll believe it when I see it. Stop talking and show me! Wrench: Watch this.
(Wrench places a wanted poster of Ivan on a Vivix.)
(The Robot locks onto the Vivix, and fires a laser from its hand, placing a hole in he picture.)
Fury: Yes! The perfect weapon to finish the Rangers.
(Back at the museum, the Prince and Koda are talking in the cafe.)
Phillip: I can't believe it. Really? A caveman? Koda (eating): Uh-huh.
(A teenage girl walks over, grabbed by the Prince's bodyguards.)
Girl: Can I have your autograph, your Highness? Phillip: Ah-- but of course. Anything for a fan.
(The Prince autographs a picture for her.)
Girl: You are so cute. Phillip: Uh, thank you.
(The girl leaves.)
Phillip: So, you say the Energem bonded with you. Well, how is that? Koda: It... chose me. Phillip: It chose you? Why? Koda: It believe I have good heart. Phillip: Good heart? Hmm. Well, how does one prove that to a gem? Koda: Don't know. Energem mysterious. Power Ranger must be worthy. Phillip: A Ranger must be worthy. Hmm.
(Sometime later, the Rangers are opening crates.)
Shelby: Someone got the museum new fossils?
(Kendall opens the manifest to see who sent these new additions.)
Kendall: From the Prince of Zandar.
(Elsewhere, Prince Phillip and his servants are bringing food to a soup kitchen.)
Phillip: Ah, yes, that's perfect, right there. Nobody around here will be hungry for a long while.
(The Prince checks his Energem. Nothing is happening. He returns to the castle, and writes a check.)
Phillip: This is to be sent immediately.
(Soon, a hospital receives new equipment.)
Nurse: Thank you for the wheelchairs, your Highness.
(The Prince returns to Amber Beach, where he has paid to build a playground.)
Phillip: I proudly give to the city of Amber Beach, the Zandar play park!
(The Prince cuts a ribbon.)
Phillip: Off you go, children.
(Again, he checks his Energem.)
(The Prince returns to Zandar.)
Phillip: My trusty Margaret. Are you sure that all my gifts have been received? Margaret: Yes, Your Highness. If you don't believe me, just look at all the thank you letters.
(Margaret dumps a large sack of mail in front of the Prince.)
Phillip: Thank you.
(He checks the Energem again, and still, it has not bonded with him.)
Phillip: I don't know what more I can do.
(Back in Amber Beach, while it would seem as if a lot of time has passed, not much truly has, as Chloe is still there, with Chase at the Skate Park.)
Chloe: Can you show me how to do a midair 360? Chase: That's lesson two. Lesson one is foot on board.
(Chloe's lesson is interrupted by Chase's dino comm.)
Chase: Oh, uh, just one sec. Shelby (v/o): Chase, we need you here now. Chase: Oh, you're kidding me. Again? (to Shelby): I'll be there. Chloe: Ready? Chase: Ahh... I'm sorry, but um... Chloe: Work again, huh? Chase: Yeah. Hey, why don't you go play with your mates? I'll be back as soon as I can.
(Chase leaves. Chloe realizes she forgot to give him a present.)
Chloe: Wait! Chase!
(Chloe starts following her brother. Prince Phillip has returned to the museum, and is talking with the Rangers.)
Phillip: Nothing is more noble than helping one's fellow man. And I wanted to help you on your mission to keep the earth safe. A week ago, I found this.
(The Prince shows the Rangers his Energem,)
Koda: Graphite Energem. Tyler: Why didn't you tell us? Phillip: Well, I hoped it would bond with me. I did everything I could but... Clearly I'm not worthy of being a Power Ranger. Perhaps you can find someone more fitting?
(The Prince hands his Energem to Tyler.)
Tyler: Thanks, Prince Phillip, this means a lot.
(The energem is blasted out of Tyler's hands.)
Fury: Like my new weapon?
(Fury is there, with the robot, along with Vivix and Spikeballs.)
Phillip: My robot-- it's impossible. Fury: Time to crush you with your own technology! Tyler: That hunk of steel doesn't stand a chance against us! Fury: Now! Robot: Destroy Rangers.
(The Rangers begin attacking Fury's forces. The bodyguards move the Prince away from the battle.)
Bodyguard: Over here, Sire.
Robot: Attack. Fury: You'll never defeat my mechanical minion!
(In the midst of the battle. Chloe arrives.)
Chloe: Chase! Chase: Chloe, stop!
(A blast from the robot narrowly misses her.)
Chloe: Chase, help! Chase: Chloe! Fury: Get the girl! Robot: Attack girl.
(The robot starts firing at Chloe.)
Chase: Chloe! Chloe: Help!
(Chase fires at the robot, but even the hot shot can miss.)
(The Prince breaks away from his bodyguards.)
Bodyguard: No, don't, Sire!
(He fights through the Vivix, and lands a kick on the robot, making his way over to Chloe.)
Phillip: Come with me.
(The Prince picks Chloe up and carries her to safety, narrowly avoiding several blasts. Chase runs over to her, followed by the bodyguards.)
Chase: Chloe! Are you all right? Chloe: Yeah. Chase: Look, these guys will take you back to the museum. I'll be there soon.
(The bodyguards escort Chloe away.)
Chloe: Okay, Chase. Chase (to Phillip): Thank you, mate. I owe you one.
(Nearby, the graphite energem starts to glow. It begins to levitate.)
Fury: What? An Energem!
(The Energem flies over to the Prince, knocking him down.)
Chase: Your Highness! Shelby: The prince!
(The Energem bonds with the Prince.)
Fury: No! Phillip: It chose me. Chase: Congratulations.
(The others rush over.)
Koda: Energem very smart. Ace: That's what caused my energem to bond with me. Saving a child. It's not acts of charity that attract the Energems, Your Highness, but acts of bravery.
(A Dino Morpher appears in the Prince's hand.)
(The dino comms chirp.)
Shelby: Ms. Morgan, you're not going to believe what just happened. Fury: Another Ranger? Not for long. Phillip: Is it morphing time? Tyler: You bet it is. Fury: You beat me once, but it won't happen again. Phillip: Graphite Energem! All: Dino Chargers ready. Energize! Unleash the power!
(The now ten Rangers morph.)
Tyler: Ha-ha, here we go! You mop-heads should try cleaning up your act. Chase: Let me help with that.
(Meanwhile, the prince, newly morphed into the Graphite Ranger, has his hands full with his own robot.)
Robot: Attack Ranger. Phillip: This new power is great. But there's nothing worse than fighting your own creation. Robot: Attack Ranger. Phillip: It looks like the monsters gave you some new tricks. Robot: Blast Ranger. Phillip: This doesn't look good.
(The Prince dodges the blasts.)
Koda: Dino Steel armor on! Fury! Fury: Maybe this club will drive you back to the Stone Age!
(A Spikeball with a large club attacks.)
Koda: That not impress me.
(Koda receives an assist.)
Ivan: En garde. Fury: Huh? Ivan: 'Tis I, the Knight of Zandar, come to smite thee with steel and lightning.
(Ivan disarms the Spikeball>)
Koda: Now, that impressed me. Shelby: You're so easy to beat, I could do it from the ground. Ace: You see, Shelb. This is why I said fighting Vivix is boring. They're just too easy to beat.
(Vivix attempt to grab Riley.)
Riley: Nice try, but not nice enough.
(The Prince continues to battle his robot.)
Phillip: I never should've given you such long-lasting batteries.
(The Prince tries to attack the robot from behind, but Wrench's upgrades have made him stronger.)
Robot: Attack Ranger.
(The robot blasts at its creator. But the Prince keeps on fighting. Nearby...)
Koda: I help you, Ivan. Stego Shield!
(Koda throws his shield, it hits Fury, then the Spikeball Ivan is fighting, before boomeranging back to Koda.)
Koda: Ha, welcome back, Stego Shield.
(Koda focuses on the Spikeball.)
Koda: This one, I have. Ivan: I shall follow your lead, Sir Koda.
(The two Rangers attack the Spikeball, knocking it down.)
Fury: Vivix, rise! And finish the job!
(Dozens of Vivix merge into into two Vivizords.)
Fury: I'm out of here.
(Fury takes his leave.)
Robo: Attack Ranger. Phillip: You already said that.
(The Prince sees the Vivizords.)
Phillip: What are those beasts?
Tyler: Oh, no! Shelby: We've got trouble.
(One of the Vivizords knocks Tyler through several rows of stone barricades.).)
Shelby: Tyler! Ivan: No!
(The Prince finally lands a powerful blow on the robot right before he discovers he has a dino comm.)
Kendall (v/o): Prince Phillip, Tyler's been hurt. The other Rangers need you to call your Zord. Phillip: Wait-- aren't you the museum director? Kendall (v/o): Just throw your Dino Charger, now. Phillip: I will help as best I can. Dino Charger ready. Summon Pachy Zord.
(The Prince throws his Dino Charger, powered by the spirit of the Pachycephalasaurus. It flies through a waterfall, finding a long hidden Zord.)
Morpher: Dino Charger engage.
(The Zord, with a mace on its tail arrives, attacking the Vivizords, as the Prince deals with the robot.)
Phillip: Get back.
(He sees the Zord fighting.)
Phillip: Whoa. That's my Zord?
(The other Rangers make it over to Tyler.)
Ivan: Sir Tyler! Are you all right? Tyler: Yeah. Look at that!
(The lone Zord dishes out further damage.)
Ace: This is like a bad coin toss. Heads or tails, the Vivizords lose either way.
(The other Rangers head to where the Prince is still fighting the robot.)
Phillip: If my Zord can take out those creatures, then I can finish you. Graphite Power Royal Dino Punch!
(The robot is hit with an attack as powerful as the Pachy Zord's tail mace.)
Phillip: Robot destroyed. Tyler: You pack quite a punch. Koda: Yes. Chase: Nice! Koda: You met your Pachy Zord. Phillip: Indeed I have.
(The Zord leaves.)
Phillip: Thank you, Pachy Zord.
(Up in orbit, Sledge's pod returns to the ship.)
Fury: Ah, good. I thought Sledge would be waiting here to tell me off.
(Sledge enters the pod bay>)
Sledge: Fury! I sent you to destroy the Rangers, but now there's even more of them! Fury: Indeed, I failed. But no one wants revenge as badly as I do. Give me another chance! Sledge: My patience will run out... Just like your nine lives.
(Down in Amber Beach, Chase finally has time for Chloe's first skateboard lesson.)
Chase: Oh, you're doing great. Chloe: Whoo-hoo, the next champion! Just like my big brother.
(A minivan arrives.)
Chloe: Aw, I have to go already.
(Chloe hands Chase the present.)
Chloe: It's for you. Open it.
(Chase opens the present.)
Chloe: It's a plane ticket to New Zealand so you come see Mum and I for Christmas. Chase: Chloe, this might just be the best present I ever got. I wouldn't miss it for the world.
(Chase picks up Chloe, and carries her over to the van.)
Chase: Let's go.
(Back it the lab...)
Phillip: It was easy for me to throw money at things, but I realize now it was never going to make me worthy of being a Power Ranger. Keeper: Your great courage and sacrifice in the face of danger allowed the Graphite Energem to see the real you. Phillip: I wish I could remain here with you all. Riley: We understand. Shelby: Royalty comes with its own responsibilities. Koda: Zandar need you. Phillip: And I promise to protect the Graphic Energem. Use the Pachy Zord and Graphite charges in your quest to find the remaining Energems. But, if you ever require the help of the Graphite Ranger... I will return. Shelby: Uh, until we see you again. Chase: And, uh, no more robots, okay?
