Episode 1.04 Forces of Nature
(Dark clouds, storm is going on and drums are beating)
Beast Boy: (As an ox, he puts a giant rubberband around Y stick. Has a balloon in his hands
and laughs) This is going to be SO sweet.
Raven: (Comes up behind) What are you doing?
(Beast Boy is startled and almost
Beast Boy: Please tell me this isn’t a ridiculous prank.
Beast Boy: Ok, it’s not a ridiculous
prank. It’s a brilliant one!
(Raven rolls her eyes)
Beast Boy: Alright, check it out! (Goes into flashback)
Remember how Cyborg put red dye in my shampoo and I turned brown for two days? Well sister, it’s payback time.
I give you the Beast Boy Inst-a-Lube 9000! See when Chomedome steps around the corner, his foot tugs the string, the
string trips the lever, the lever releases the mother of all rubber bands, which sends a balloon-load of motor oil flying
right at him, and…Whoosh! Pretty clever, huh?
Beast Boy: (Pauses. Sarcastically) You’re a genius.
Boy: It’s just a little good clean dirty fun.
(Hears someone coming)
Beast Boy: Here he comes! (Runs.
Then grabs Raven to a hiding place)
Beast Boy: (Whispering) I do not think…
Beast Boy: SH!
Beast Boy: But
Beast Boy: SH!
(Raven looks behind her, but Beast Boy keeps looking at his trap.)
Cyborg: Why are
Beast Boy: SH! Aah! Cyborg! You can’t be Cyborg!
Cyborg: I can’t?
Beast Boy: If
you’re you, then who’s…?
(All three look over at the trap, but the lever is already tripped. BB
runs out, trying to stop the balloon)
Beast Boy: NOOO!!!!
(Balloon hits Star)
Beast Boy: Starfire!
(Starfire is sitting on the floor)
Cyborg: You okay?
Starfire: (Blinks) This is punishment? I did something
Beast Boy: You didn’t. He did.
Beast Boy: (Makes sheep noise) Star…it was…you weren’t
supposed to…I didn’t…heh! Just remember to change that oil every few three thousand miles. Heh,
Starfire: On my planet we have a name for those who do such a horrible things! You are a…a…Clorbag
Beast Boy: I’m a what-bag?
Cyborg: You heard the lady.
Beast Boy: You are such a Clorbag.
Boy: Come on you guys! Can’t everybody take a joke?
(On a bridge)
Thunder: May we have fun here, brother?
Lightning: Of course. We are Thunder
and Lightning! We can do whatever we please!
Look brother! I command the sparks to dance! (Laughs)
Amusing! Now listen, as I make music! (Claps hands and thunder rolls)
Lightning: Let all who pass this way know Lightning
Thunder: And Thunder too!
(Car alarms go off. Thunder and Lightning laugh.)
Lightning: Most amusing!
Hate to break it to you, but you guys have a lousy sense of humor. This ends. Now!
Lightning: No one gives
orders to Thunder and Lightning! Taste my power!
(Titans evade the attacks. Starfire chases Lightning with
starbolts on the tops of cars, Cyborg and Thunder, Robin and Thunder, Lightning and Raven, Beast Boy turns into a panda and
attacks Lightning but gets shocked)
Lightning: (Laughs) Your powers are strong…but mine are stronger.
to the ground. Thunder confronts him.)
Beast Boy: (Gasp)
Thunder: Your power of the animals is impressive, green
one. Rise so we may do battle.
Beast Boy: Why are you doing this?
Thunder: Because it is not sporty to attack
an unready opponent.
Beast Boy: No! Why are you wrecking everything?!
Beast Boy: (Points to attacked people) Do they look amused?!
Beast Boy: This isn’t
funny! It’s wrong!
(Beast Boy gets zapped by Lightning. Beast Boy screams)
Lightning: Ah! The thrill
of victory. Come Thunder. We shall seek more amusement.
(Thunder and Lightning disappear into the sky)
Boy: (Blinks. To Starfire) Ah, well. That was a shock.
(Starfire ignores him)
Beast Boy: So, I’m guessing
you’re still mad?
Robin: Ok, team! We have to find those guys before they do anymore damage. Cyborg,
search the West Side.
Raven the east. I’ll take downtown. Beast Boy, you and Star scan from the skies.
Beast Boy: Umm…
Maybe Cyborg should come with me instead?
Robin: (Pause) Cyborg…can’t fly.
Beast Boy: Oh, yeah…
(Pinches Beast Boy’s cheek) Have a nice, flight my little Clorbag.
(In a park like place, Thunder and Lightning appear)
Lightning: Magnificent! We can make much mischief here!
(Lightning bolts fly from Lightning’s
hands, makes a huge statue of a ball roll and knocks over other statues like dominoes)
Lightning: Did you see what I…(Notices
that his brother is not laughing as he is and is looking sad and confused) Something…Troubles you?
Thunder: The green
one’s words. He says our fun is wrong.
Lightning: (Pauses then laughs) Wrong! He speaks nonsense brother.
How could such amusement be wrong? The fun is just beginning.
(Starfire and Beast Boy appear on screen, flying in
the sky. Beast Boy is a raven. They look down and see statues destroyed. They land)
Beast Boy: Either
they were just here, or this is the ugliest modern art I’ve ever seen.
Starfire: You are not funny. You are a Clorbag
(Walks away. Beast Boy follows)
Beast Boy: Come on, Star. You can’t stay mad forever!
What? Do I have to do the face? You know you can’t resist the face.
(Transforms into a cute little kitten.
Starfire looks down and walks past him. Beast Boy transforms back.)
Beast Boy: She resisted the face! Just
talk to me Star! Come on this is no fun!
(Hears Thunder and Lightning coming. Thunder laughs and thunder comes out
of his hands going towards Starfire and Beast Boy. Starfire runs from Thunder and throws starbolts at him. Beast
Boy turns into a jackrabbit and runs away from Lightning, then turns into a bird, and then a mouse.)
Your animal force cannot protect you forever!
(Beast Boy transforms into an ox and charges into Lightning.
Beast Boy changes into a bear and pushes Thunder. Starfire and Lightning fight. Beast Boy changes back)
Boy: I don’t want to hurt you. And I don’t think you want to hurt me.
Thunder: Pain does not amuse us.
Boy: Could’ve fooled me. Keep playing rough, and innocent people will get hurt.
(Slade appears disguised as
a Chinese sorcerer. The ground shakes. Laser comes from Slade and makes boulders come flying towards Starfire)
Slade’s voice: Your gifts are your own. Who are they to tell you how to use them?
And who are you to command such power? Show yourself!
Slade: As you wish. (Slade appears) I am but a humble old man.
Whose power is drawn by nature, like your own. Come with me and sow as much destruction as you please.
(Very exited) Yes! More fun!
Thunder: (Puts hand on Lightning’s shoulder) Will we harm anyone?
Lightning: (Shocked and a little mad) What?! The green one has poisened your mind.
Thunder: (To Slade)
This destruction? Will we harm the innocent?
Slade: Would it matter if you did? You are unique, gifted, better.
Why should anything interfere with your enjoyment. I am going. Follow as you wish. (Slad walks away)
Come brother, and leave your foolish thoughts behind.
(Thunder looks at rock pile and walks with his brother. Beast
Boy comes out of rock pile as a spider. Then he transforms back)
Beast Boy: Star? (Panicky) Starfire?! Where
are you?! Come on, gimme a sign here! (Goes through rocks and looks for Starfire) You have to be alright, ok!
‘Cause I…it was just a joke…jou know. Back at the tower…and I’m sorry. I never said
it, but I’m really, really sorry. It was supposed to be funny, and you could’ve been hurt, and I’m
a total Clorbag.
(Shadow comes up behind Beast Boy. Beast Boy turns around and Starfire’s smiling) Starfire!
(Transforms into kitten, jumps into Starfire’s arms and purrs)
Starfire: (Laughs) I am glad you are unharmed
(Beast Boy transforms back, and gets on his knees on the ground)
Beast Boy: I am so sorry. You gotta
Starfire: I already have. Now those evil brothers must be made to apologize.
Beast Boy: I don’t
think they are evil. I think they’re just like me.
(In the forest, sticks are tied with leaves)
(Mad) Sticks and leaves! Is this a joke?!
There is no fun in blasting such frail targets!
Slade: Are yu certain
young master? Try. You may like what you see. (Shoots lightning from his hands and sets a target on fire)
Lightning: Dancing lights! Pleasing!
Thunder: Let Thunder try his hand.(Sets another target on fire) Wonderous
Lightning: See brother. There is no harm in our fun.
Slade: And there is so much fun to be had.
and Lightning set all the targets on fire)
Lightning: More targets, old one!
Thunder: Yes, please give us more!
That won’t be necessary. You have done quite enough.
(Throws a disk with a strange marking on it into the sky.
The targets connect and make a flame monster)
Slade: Rise! Burn fire! Burn it all! (Fire monster rises and
heads towards town. The Titans are in front of Flame Monster)
Robin: Didn’t anyone ever tell you playing with
fire you’re going to get burned.
(Flame Monster spreads fire)
Slade: Good. Very good.
what have we done?
(Mountaintop is on fire)
Robin: Titans! Go!
(Runs after Flame Monster. Robin throws
Raven: Flames can’t spread if there’s nothing to burn. Azarath Metrion Zinthos!
come up from the ground)
Robin: Good idea, Raven. Beast Boy, Starfire, help her out!
(Beast Boy transforms into
an ox and pushes trees down. Star uses starbolts and knocks down trees. Cyborg blasts Flame Monster)
Boy: Is he out?
(Flame Monster gets up)
Raven: Had to ask.
Slade: Go young masters. Fire is your creation the
have no right to destroy your fun.
Lightning: Yes! We must fight!
Thunder: But brother-
Lightning: Do not annoy
me with your foolish concerns. Come!
(Both disappear in a flash of light. Robin comes into view and tries to
kick Slade’s face)
Slade: Robin. We meet at last.
Robin: Who are you?
(Both scream and begin to fight)
Azarath Metrion Zinthos!
(Flame Monster knocks Raven, Starfire, and Cyborg. They try to get up but Lightning knocks
them down again with his lightning bolts. Beast Boy as a tiger confronts Thunder)
Thunder: Stand aside, green one.
Thunder: I do not wish to harm you.
Beast Boy: But you want to destroy homes and innocent lives?
Beast Boy:Then why are you fighting for?
Thunder: My brother and I…the old one says we are unique, gifted,
Beast Boy: Gifts don’t make you better, just different. It’s how you use them that counts.
(To Starfire) It seems that your power has its limit. But mine has none! (Thunder attacks Lightning with his thunder.
Lightning gets up) You betray me?!
Thunder: We have done wrong, my brother. Our fun must stop.
Lightning: No one
commands Lightning, not even Thunder! (Zaps Thunder with his lightning bolts. Slade and Robin continue to battle)
Those houses could go. The whole city could go. We gotta stop the fire.
we can. (Cyborg, Beast Boy, Raven and Starfire run to the town. Thunder and Lightning fight)
Thunder: Tell me brother.
Are we still having fun?
Thunder: Observe. (Points to town) They also have gifts but they
use them for good while we waste ours on dangerous fun. If we are so special, brother, let us act special. We
Lightning: But how? Our gifts can only destroy.
Thunder: True, but together we have another gift.
look up at the sky, a flash of light and they disappear. Drums beat. Rain comes down and destroys Flame Monster.
Beast Boy, Raven, Cyborg and Starfire laugh. Slade holds Robin up to a tree)
Slade: Robin. Is that the best
you can do?
(lightning causes Slade to drop Robin, and chips off some of Slade’s mask. Slade disappears in
a flash of light, leaving the disk behind. Robin picks up disk)
(Thunder and Lightning come to earth)
(To Beast Boy) I am sorry for the trouble we have made. (Nudges Lightning)
Lightning: I am also sorry. (Bows to Beast Boy)
You have taught us much green one. Thank you.
Beast Boy: Don’t thank me. (Points to Starfire. Starfire
walks forward) Thank the person who taught me. (Both Thunder and Lightning bow to Starfire)
Starfire: And thank you for
helping to defeat the Flame Monster.
(Thunder and Lightning return to the sky. Titans are looking at a rainbow over
Cyborg: So, Slade wants to destroy the city, question is, why?
Robin: I don’t know, but I will find
out and he won’t get away with it.
Beast Boy: (To Starfire) So…am I…you know…still a Clorbag?
Starfire: Hmm….No. I believe you are more of a Milnip Wooser Loop.
Beast Boy: Sweet! (Starts to dance)
Go Beast Boy! I’m a Milnip! Who’s you Wooser Loop, hun! (Stops dancing) That…is a good thing
right, Star? (Starfire laughs then flies off. Robin, Raven and Cyborg follow) Star? (Follows rest)
