The Amazing Race MK

By Giga Bowser NS

EPISODE 12: Destination: Dry Dry Outpost
Title: Hey, what is this, a cheap gag?

Phil: Previously on, The Amazing Race MK: 4 teams set off from the wondrous floating island of Bob-omb Battlefield… and raced across 100 miles to the Mushroom Plains, better known as “World 1-1”. Teams got a feel for nostalgia as they wandered the location of Mario’s first escapade. With the final elimination dawning on everyone, things got frantic as teams hurried to complete the tasks. Yoshi and Pink Yoshi bravely went for the Fast Forward after everyone else refused, sending them to first place!


Phil: Teams found the Detour difficult and the Roadblock frustrating. Soon it narrowed down to two teams fighting for last place. In the end, Bowser and Bowser Jr. beat out King Boo and Boo, ending their race. Now three teams remain. The race for the million coins… approaches…

The opening plays with a final Red X over King Boo and Boo.

Phil: This is the area known as World 1-1, A flat field filled with ? Blocks and bricks. When this area was colonized years ago, small fortress were built here and there. This was one of them. This… was the eleventh Pitstop… in a race around the MK. Teams arrived here for a mandatory 12 hour rest period. Only three teams are left in the race, and one of them will ultimately win the one million coins. There are no more elimination points, so this leg is simply to gain a better standing for the final leg. Yoshi and Pink, who were the first to arrive at 1:05 PM…will depart… at 1:05 AM.


Pink: This is so exciting! The end is near!

Yoshi: Fly to Dry Dry Outpost!

Phil: Teams must now make their way to Petalburg and find the Petalburg Airport. They must then board a flight for Dry Dry Outpost, a small town on the edge of the expansive Dry Dry Desert. When teams land, they must find the shop, where they’ll find their next clue.

Pink: Isn’t that in the desert?

Yoshi: Yeah, baby! We’re headin’ into the desert storm!

Pink: Come on! Let’s hurry and get there before the Mario Bros. leave!

***Yoshi: We’re leaving on this leg in first place… thanks to our hard work and determination. There are only three teams left, so we have to step it up.

Pink: We ride the ATVs again?

Yoshi: Yeah. We need to go to Petalburg to get on a plane…

They drive off…

Mario/Luigi -- Brother Superheroes -- 1:10 AM

Mario: Fly to Dry Dry Outpost!

Luigi: Aww! We were just going through a bunch of lands we had both been through, now we’re going back to “you” adventures.

Mario: Yep! Don’t worry though, Luigi! That place is easy to navigate! It’s pretty small!

***Mario: We’re in second place right now. We would’ve been first, but the Yoshis took the Fast Forward.

***Luigi: We’re closing in on the million coins!

***Mario: We’re just gotta keep going and never give up!

Mario: Let’s-a go!!!

Luigi: Yahoo!

Yoshi/Pink Yoshi -- Dating

Pink: Are we almost there?

Yoshi: Yeah! It’s just a few more miles!

Pink: It feels good to be out in front, doesn’t it?

Yoshi: Totally!


Pink: Aah!!!

The ATV lurches forward

Pink: What was that?

Yoshi: Oh, no! We’re slowing down!

Pink: What? What do you mean?

Yoshi: It stopped!


Yoshi: It won’t start! It’s stalled!

Pink: Can you fix it?

Yoshi: I… I don’t know… It… won’t start!

Pink: Shoot! That’s not good!

Yoshi: Aww, man!

Pink: The Marios are going to catch up!

Mario/Luigi -- Brother Superheroes
Luigi: Mario, are you sure you know where you’re going?

Mario: Of course, Luigi! I went there on an adventure too!

Luigi: Really?! Wow! I must be psychic!

Mario: Oh, be quiet!

Yoshi/Pink Yoshi -- Dating
Yoshi: Nope! The thing’s dead! It just won’t start!

Pink: Argh! That really stinks!

Mario/Luigi -- Brother Superheroes
Luigi: Hey! Who’s this?

Mario: It’s Yoshi and Pink!

Yoshi/Pink Yoshi -- Dating
Pink: Ahh! The Marios!

Yoshi: They’re passing us!

Mario: Wahoo!

Luigi: See ya!

Yoshi: That’s awful!

Pink: This is the worst time for this to happen!!!

Mario/Luigi -- Brother Superheroes
Luigi: Their ATV broke down!

Mario: That’s great! Now we’re in first!

Luigi: Yeah! Things are looking great!

Mario: Let’s hurry to the airport!

Yoshi/Pink Yoshi -- Dating
Yoshi: Ughh…

Pink: We need a new one!

Phil: If a vehicle breaks down or becomes inoperable, the rule is a replacement car will be given to the team. However, no time credit will be given for this unlucky situation.

Yoshi: There it is!

Pink: Good! Let’s just go!

Yoshi: We gotta get on the earliest flight!

Pink: We just have to!

Mario: Ahh! Petalburg! So wonderful!

Luigi: Well, I’d assume it would be… during the day.

Mario: Oh shut up!

Luigi: Come on! Where’s the airport?

Mario: It’s over there, behind those buildings!

Luigi: Well, let’s hurry! We gotta get on the first flight!

They walk into the airport

Mario: Hello? Is anyone open?

Zazzee: Yes!

Mario: Ah! We need to get to Dry Dry Outpost… absolutely as fast as possible!

Luigi: Is there a non-stop flight to there?

Zazee: Yes, we have one non-stop flight… No seats are left on it.

Mario: Aww…

Luigi: What’s the next fastest?

Zazee: Hmmm… I can get you seats on Toadstool Air, departing at 3:15, you connect through Giant Land and arrive at Dry Dry Outpost at 8:30 AM.

Mario: And you’re sure there’s nothing faster?

Zazee: Nothing. That’s the fastest flight.

Mario: All right. Book… two… tickets please!

Bowser/Bowser Jr. -- Father + Son - 1:45 AM

Bowser: Fly to Dry Dry Outpost.

Jr: Cool. The desert. That’s awesome.

Bowser: Yeah… That’s where Tutankoopa lives.

Jr: That weirdo?

Bowser: Yeah… He’s… unbalanced…

***Bowser: We’re behind right now, but we feel quite confident.

***Jr: No one could possibly take our place as number 1!

***Bowser: It’s every team for themselves!

Bowser: Come on! Let’s get there!

Jr: This’ll be awesome!

Mario/Luigi -- Brother Superheroes
Mario: I wonder if the Yoshis will be mad that we didn’t stop to help them?

Luigi: Hey! It’s the final three! We can’t afford to help them!

Yoshi/Pink Yoshi -- Dating
Yoshi: All right! We’re here!

Pink: That stunk!

Yoshi: There’s the Marios!

Pink: Hey guys!

Mario/Luigi -- Brother Superheroes
Mario: Howzit going?

Pink: What flight are you on?

Mario: It’s departing today.

Pink: Yeah…

Yoshi: Come on, let’s go!

***Mario: I wasn’t going to tell them the flight. I wanted to surge ahead of them

Yoshi/Pink Yoshi -- Dating
Pink: Hi! We’re trying to get to Dry Dry Outpost.

Kooka: Ok… Our best flight at the moment is Toadstool Air, departing at 3:15, arriving at 8:30.

Pink: Sounds good. Is there anything better we could get on?

Kooka: No. Any sooner flights are full.

Pink: Bummer.

Yoshi: Okay, we’ll go with that then!

Mario/Luigi -- Brother Superheroes
Luigi: Oh. They’re on our flight.

Mario: Eh… Whatever…

Luigi: Hm.

Bowser/Bowser Jr. -- Father + Son
Bowser: We’re here…

Jr: Everyone’s here!

Bowser: Yeah. Hey, Goomba!

Goomoom: Wah! Y-yes?

Bowser: We need the same flights as them!

Goomoom: Yes sir, right away sir.

Bowser: Excellent. We caught up!

Jr: We’re back in the mix!

Mario/Luigi -- Brother Superheroes
Mario and Luigi display angry glances.

Yoshi/Pink Yoshi -- Dating
Yoshi: Oi…

Bowser/Bowser Jr. -- Father + Son
***Jr: We were sitting around, waiting for the flight.

Jr: Hey Dad, do you think there might be something faster? Something they didn’t find?

Bowser: What? Well… no… I don’t think so.

Jr: You asked for “The same flights as them”. You never said the fastest flight.

Bowser: Hmmm… That’s right! I never sought out the fastest flight! I’m so glad I thought of that!

Jr: -.-

*Sneaky Music*

Jr: Are they still in the lobby?

Bowser: Uhh… No, they all went to the gate.

Jr: Okay! Go talk to the underling again!

Bowser: Hey. Goomba.

Goomoom: Yes?

Bowser: Is there anything faster than this flight? Cuz we need to beat those other guys!

Goomoom: Hmm… I can check… Hold on…

Bowser: …

Goomoom: Actually, one family was unable to go on their excursion, so they cancelled their tickets. The non-stop flight to Dry Dry Outpost now has free seats!

Bowser: Shhhhhhh!!! That’s excellent, but keep it under your hat! I don’t want you telling this to those other teams. Now, give us tickets on that flight!

Goomoom: Right away!

Bowser: Heh heh heh…

Bowser: Ha ha! We’re on the flight, and they’re not!

Jr: Baby! Here we go!

Mario/Luigi -- Brother Superheroes
Luigi: Hey, Bro! Isn’t that… Bowser on the tarmac?

Mario: Huh? Hey… It IS him… What’s he doing?

Luigi: That’s the non-stop flight!

Mario: What?! He must’ve gotten tickets!

Luigi: Ahh! How in the world did he do that?!

Mario: Aww shoot, no! He passed us! Can we still make it?

Luigi: No, look. It’s already moving.

Mario: Noooooooooooooo!

Luigi: That is a major problem!

Bowser/Bowser Jr. -- Father + Son
Bowser: Heh heh heh…

Phil: All teams are now making their way to Dry Dry Outpost. Bowser and Jr. are on the first, non-stop flight. Mario and Luigi…and Yoshi and Pink are on a second flight… connecting through Giant Land.

7:00 AM
Bowser/Bowser Jr. -- Father + Son
Bowser: Ahh! Sunrise in the desert! It looks so awesome!

Jr: Sure does!

Bowser: Come on, what do we need to find?

Jr: We have to find the Item Shop!

Bowser: Well, where’s that?

Jr: Hey! Does anybody speak English?!


Bowser: Shut up! I’m not gonna kill you, sheesh!

Jr: That… is REALLY annoying.

Bowser: Is this Item Shop a Flower Power one?

Jr: The clue doesn’t say…

Bowser: Well, let’s look for a flower icon first!

Jr: Hmmm… I think that’s one….Yeah! It’s over there!

Bowser: Excellent!

Jr: Hi!

Squeek: (Arabic accent) Hello! How are you?

Bowser: Fine, fine, give us the clue!

Squeek: Here is your next clue!


Bowser: Roadblock… Whose mind is the strongest?

Phil: A Roadblock is a task that only one person may perform! And no person may do more than six Roadblocks on the entire race! In this Roadblock, teams must first scour the city to find Merlee’s tent, which is actually hidden in the back alleys. When they find it, they must learn the complicated and difficult art… of telekinesis. They must learn how to use these extraordinary powers and use them to levitate five items. When they have completed this task… they will receive their next clue.

Bowser: Oh, god. That clue don’t make not much sense!

Jr: Ugh… I’ll do it. Your mind isn’t very strong with grammar like that.

Bowser: Hey!

Jr: Learn… t…te…telkanis…telekunis…

Bowser: Lemme see that… Aww, man! It’s telekinesis! I already know how to do that a little! Darn!

Jr: Oh… You mean like psychic powers?

Bowser: Yeah… Well, good luck, Son!

Jr: Aww, man!

Jr: Where is this place? I can’t really ask anyone because they’re all cowering in fear right now… Hmm… She’s not in any of these front buildings, I’ve established that. Oog! This is frustrating! *lightbulb appears* Oh! I know! Hey, you!

Dryite: Wah! Yes?

Jr: Tell me where Merlee is!

Dryite: Oh, no! Do not hurt Merlee!!!

Jr: *Evil Eye*

Dryite: Umm… Meep… She’s down that alleyway!

Jr: Thanks, bub!

Dryite: Do not harm her! She very friendly person! I like her!

Jr: Yeah yeah, shut it!

Bowser: Excellent work, Jr! Now, go learn! Listen, the key is to keep your mind blank, except for the task you want completed.

Jr: Got it!

He enters the alley.

Merlee: Greetings, young one. Welcome to my domain.

Jr: …

Merlee: These are the items you will be levitating: a piece of paper, a stick, a spoon, a box of fruit, and finally… me.

Jr: Hmmm… Okay! I’m ready!

Merlee: Good. Clear your mind, young one. Picture nothing… nothing except vast, empty space.

Jr: Hmm…

Merlee: Let nothing distract you. Block out all noise and vision. Close your eyes and open your mind.

Jr: Mmm…

Merlee: Now… is your mind clear?

Jr. nods.

Merlee: Good. Let us begin. I want you to picture the piece of paper. ONLY… the paper. Your mind’s eye should only see the paper.

Jr: I… see the paper…

Merlee: Good. Very good. Now, imagine the paper is on a table. Just like the one before you. Imagine that the paper is resting on top of the table, not moving at all.

Jr: Hm…

Merlee: Finally… imagine the paper moving slowly upwards. Make sure to take it slow, as it is your first try.

Jr: Mmm…

Merlee: Slowly, gently rising off the table…

Jr: It’s up…

Merlee: Now, project this image into your will. You must want the paper to rise. You must force it to rise!

Jr: Grr…

Merlee: Do not speak, but communicate to this paper: “You must rise!”

Jr: …

Merlee: … .Success!

Jr: Huh?

Merlee: Well done, young one! Open your eyes and look what you have accomplished.

The paper is floating about a meter up from the table. As soon as Jr. opens his eyes, it falls.

Jr: Woah! Cool!!! That was awesome!

Merlee: Well done, young one. We move on to the next item.

Jr: Okay!

***Jr: Seeing the paper in the air was so satisfying. I was thinking I couldn’t believe I had done that! It was one of my best experiences!

Merlee: Concentrate! Will the stick upwards!

Jr: Hmmmm…

Merlee: Success! You have raised the stick.

Jr: Good!

***Jr: After the first two items, I got better and better! It became easier to make these things float!

***Bowser: He’s awesome, isn’t he?

***Jr: Ha ha ha!

Jr: Okay… I see… I see the spoon…

Merlee: This one is a bit heavier… You must concentrate harder.

Jr: I see… Up… Move… up…

Merlee: The spoon is twitching… You are getting closer.

Jr: Come on… Come on…

Merlee: Almost… Use your will! Use your mind! You must believe that the spoon can move!

Jr: Yes… yes… I can feel it…

Merlee: Excellent! Success! You have done it again, young one!

Jr: Yeah!

Merlee: Now, we will move onto something more difficult! A box of fruit!

Jr: Hoo, boy! Bring it on!

Mario/Luigi -- Brother Superheroes
Yoshi/Pink Yoshi -- Dating
They have boarded the plane.

Microphone: *Pfffft* Good morning folks, this is your captain speaking. Uhhhh… We were extremely efficient today and everyone is onboard and accounted for. Therefore, we will be departing early. Hope you enjoy your flight!

Mario: Oooh!

Luigi: Great!

Bowser/Bowser Jr. -- Father + Son
Bowser: Hmm…

***Bowser: I could see into the alleyway, and I saw how well Bowser Jr. was doing. However, when the box of fruit came along, it wouldn’t move. He had a tough time with it.

Jr: Oogggg…

Merlee: Do not get frustrated, young one. You have tried many times. Though you have failed each time, you get better with each attempt. Do not lose your concentration.

Jr: *sigh* K…

Merlee: Just concentrate. Feel the box moving upward. Will it! Control it! Force it!

Jr: I… can do it…

Merlee: You will. You can do it. Just concentrate. That is the key word.

Bowser: Come on, Son…

Jr: After so many tries… I will do it! I will! UP!!!

Merlee: Yes! Success! Well done!

Jr: Woo!

Merlee: Now… the final task. You must levitate me!

Jr: You? But you’re the heaviest!


Merlee: …

Bowser: What’s he trying to lift now? There’s nothing much left!

Jr: …

Bowser: He’s been in there a long time…It’s almost quarter to.

Merlee: Your long time here has not been wasted. I can feel your energy pulling me up. Just concentrate harder.

Jr: Concentrate… harder…

Merlee: You must keep trying! Do not give up!

The camera shows the sun.

Bowser: Geez, it’s hot out here! I’m sweatin’ bullets!

Jr: …

Bowser: How much longer is he gonna be?

Jr: …

Bowser: I still don’t even know what he’s lifting…

Jr: …

Bowser: *yawn* I’m bored… Maybe I should do some scheming… Hmmmm… How… to get Peach… There must be something I haven’t done yet… I know! I’ll kidnap her! Ha! I’m a genius!

Bowser: Zzz…

Jr: Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm…

Merlee: You are almost there. You are closer than ever… Just concentrate…

Jr: I can do it… I… can do it… All I need to do… is… make… you… move… up!!!

Merlee: Ah! Success! Well done, young one! You have completed your tasks!

Jr: Really? All right!

Merlee: Here is your next clue!

Jr: Thanks a lot! Bye!

Bowser: Zzz…

Jr: HEY!!! Naptime’s over!

Bowser: Gaaah! Huh? What?

Jr: I’m done!

Bowser: Oh, really! Wow, good job, dude!


Jr: Find the secret passage to the rooftops…

Phil: Teams must now search the buildings for the only one with access to the roof. The correct building is actually this rundown old building. When teams make their way to the roof… they’ll receive their next clue.

Jr: Caution… YIELD AHEAD!!!

Phil: This, is the last of only three Yields on the entire race! This is where teams can force another team to Yield, that is, stop racing for a predetermined amount of time. However, teams may only use the Yield once on the entire race, so they must decide when it is most advantageous to use it. If a team has been yielded, they must turn over this hourglass and wait for the sand to run out before continuing.

Bowser: Yeah! YEAHHH!!! THIS IS AWESOME!!! Come on! Let’s get outta here!

***Bowser: We already knew we were in first, and when we heard there was a Yield, we were overjoyed.

***Jr: It was time for the Mario Bros. to pay!!!

Bowser: Where’s the roof access?

Jr: I didn’t see any in the shop, Toad House, or that angry musician’s place… That leaves only one building! Follow me!

Bowser: Where…?

Jr: Here! This is the only building I didn’t look in!

Bowser: What, this rundown old place?

Jr: Yeah! The clue says “Secret Passage”, and this would be the perfect place to hide one!

Bowser: Yeah, you’re right! Let’s go!

They open the door, only to find a brick wall.

Bowser: Waah! Hey, what is this, a cheap gag?

Jr: No, Dad, look! There’s a skinny passage over here!

Bowser: Oh, yeah! Let’s hurry!

Jr: Come on! Yield ahead!

Bowser: Ugh!!! This passage is… too skinny…

Jr: Augh! Come on!!!

Bowser: I’m through! Let’s go!

They climb up.

Jr: There’s the Yield!!!

Bowser: Sweet! No one’s been here!

Jr: Do it, Dad!

Bowser: We choose to Yield Mario and Luigi!

Jr: Woo!!!

Mario/Luigi -- Brother Superheroes
Mario: Come on, Luigi! I know where the shop is!

Yoshi/Pink Yoshi -- Dating
Yoshi: Follow him!

Pink: Wow! We’re in the desert!


Bowser/Bowser Jr. -- Father + Son
Bowser: Detour!

Phil: A Detour is a choice between two tasks… each with its own pros and cons! In this Detour, teams must search for one of two clues hidden in the expansive Dry Dry Desert: Search… or Rescue. In Search, teams must get in these ATVs and ride around the entire desert, looking for this tree with a flag. This task does not require any physical feat, but the notoriously confusing desert and its wind and sandstorm, could cause teams problems. In Rescue, teams will make their way along this path in the desert to this marked digging site, where they will dig for their next clue, using no tools. This task will require strong physical prowess, but there’s less area to search.

Bowser: Wow… I don’t know.

Jr: Me neither…

Bowser: Let’s just do Search!

Jr: M’okay…

Mario/Luigi -- Brother Superheroes
Mario: Roadblock!!!

Yoshi/Pink Yoshi -- Dating
Yoshi: Hmm…

Pink: I think I’ll do it.

Mario/Luigi -- Brother Superheroes
Mario: I gotta, Luigi. You’re full!

***Mario: We had no idea what place we were in. We didn’t know where the Bowsers were or anything, so we just kept pushing!

Mario: Hello, Merlee?

Merlee: Ah! Welcome!

Yoshi/Pink Yoshi -- Dating
Pink: Oh! There you are!

Merlee: Welcome to you too! Today you will be learning the complex art of telekinesis…

Bowser/Bowser Jr. -- Father + Son
Jr: Hey! I just saw Mario go into the alley!

Bowser: Yes!!! Hahaha!!! I knew we were ahead of them!

Jr: Here’s the ATV!

Bowser: Excellent! Our search begins!

Mario/Luigi -- Brother Superheroes
Merlee: Well done, Mario! You have levitated the stick!

Mario: Yes!

Yoshi/Pink Yoshi -- Dating
Merlee: Keep trying, you will get it!

Pink: Hmmmmmm…

Merlee: Just picture the paper… sitting alone…

Pink: Yes… The paper… sitting alone…

Merlee: Now, make it go up! Force it! Will it!

Pink: Gr… Hmm…

Merlee: Success! Well done!

Pink: I did it? Oh, yeah!

Merlee: Now, move onto the stick. Mario, you try the spoon.

Mario/Luigi -- Brother Superheroes
Mario: Okay!

Luigi: Go, Bro!

Yoshi: Shh! They have to concentrate!

Luigi: Oh, yeah… Sorry…

Yoshi/Pink Yoshi -- Dating
Merlee: Well done! You have made the stick rise!


Luigi: …

Bowser/Bowser Jr. -- Father + Son
Bowser: Where are we now?

Jr: There’s the stone cactus!

Bowser: Yeah… Huh? The what?!

Jr: The stone cactus. A stone shaped like a cactus!

Bowser: … That’s odd…

Jr: Sure… Let’s turn right!

Bowser: Okay.

Yoshi/Pink Yoshi -- Dating
Merlee: Nice job with the spoon!

Pink: Thanks!

Mario/Luigi -- Brother Superheroes
Merlee: Don’t give up! Just keep trying with the box of fruit. You try too, young Yoshi.

Both: …

Merlee: Concentrate…

Both: Mmmmmmm…

Merlee: Focus on your task! Block out all interference.

Mario: Up… up…

Pink: Go… up…

***Mario: It was certainly an interesting task. It was hard to perform because we thought we were tied for last place!

Merlee: Use the power of your will!

***Pink: I’m glad I did that task. It was pretty cool being psychic!

Merlee: Success!

Mario: !

Pink: !

Merlee: Mario has lifted the box!

Pink: Aww…

Mario/Luigi -- Brother Superheroes
Mario: Sweet!

Luigi: Ah! He’s ahead.

Yoshi: Aww…

The camera shows a stronger sun.

Bowser/Bowser Jr. -- Father + Son
Bowser: We’ve been out here quite a while, eh?

Jr: Yeah… Hey! There’s the blue cactus!

Bowser: Yeah, ok… What?!

Jr: The blue cactus!

Bowser: Blue… Huh? What do you mean?!

Jr: It’s a cactus and it’s blue!

Bowser: … This is… strange.

Jr: Yeah, whatever…

Mario/Luigi -- Brother Superheroes
Mario: …

Merlee: You are almost successful. You just need to concentrate on lifting me into the air. Young Yoshi, keep concentrating on that box!

Yoshi/Pink Yoshi -- Dating
Pink: Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm…

Merlee: Trust your inner strength! You must believe you can succeed in these tasks!

Mario/Luigi -- Brother Superheroes
Mario: Hmmm… Mmm…

Yoshi/Pink Yoshi -- Dating
Pink: Mmmmmmmmmmm…

Merlee: Never show weakness or distraction! Oh! Well done, Mario! You have succeeded!

Mario/Luigi -- Brother Superheroes
Mario: Wahoo!

Merlee: Here is your next clue! Farewell.

Yoshi/Pink Yoshi -- Dating
Pink: Grrrr….

***Pink: It kinda set me back, seeing Mario finish before me. I lost concentration…

Merlee: You are distracted! Clear your mind, Young Yoshi! Let nothing distract you!

Pink: *sigh* Just… a box of fruit…

Merlee: Yes… Just a box of fruit…

Mario/Luigi -- Brother Superheroes
Mario: I got it, Luigi!

Luigi: Great! Let’s go already!


Luigi: Find the secret passage to the roofs….


Luigi: Yeah, yeah. Aah! Caution: Yield ahead!

Mario: Wah! We gotta move! Like, now!

Luigi: I’m right behind you!

Mario: Hurry it up!

***Luigi: We were really afraid we’d be Yielded!

***Mario: We’d been wearing these big targets on our backs for a long time!

***Luigi: It just seemed inevitable.

Bowser/Bowser Jr. -- Father + Son
Bowser: A… blue cactus?

Yoshi/Pink Yoshi -- Dating
Yoshi: Come on, Pink… You can do it…

Pink: Just… a box of fruit…

Merlee: Unravel the power of your mind and focus it on this box.

Pink: Hmmmmmm…

Mario/Luigi -- Brother Superheroes
Luigi: How do we get to the roofs?

Mario: It’s up here!

Luigi: Where? There’s just a brick wall!

Mario: Through here!

Luigi: Oh!!!

Mario: Come on! We have to hurry!

Luigi: How do you find this stuff?

Mario: IQ.

Bowser/Bowser Jr. -- Father + Son
Bowser: We’ve been out here like an hour! We’re falling behind!

Jr: I keep getting lost! This desert is so repetitive!

Bowser: Ugh! This is awful!

Jr: Heh!

Bowser: What?

Jr: Do you think the Marios found our little present?

Bowser: Heh heh… Possibly!

Mario/Luigi -- Brother Superheroes
Luigi: There’s the Yield!

Mario: Shoot! SHOOT! I knew it! Ahhh, shoot!

Luigi: We were Yielded?

Mario: Yeah… by the Bowsers…

Luigi: That flight carried them ahead, I guess!

Mario: *sigh* This throws a wrench into our plans…

Luigi: Yeah…

***Mario: It was really crushing to be Yielded.

***Luigi: It threw us back quite far.

Mario: Well this just stinks!

Yoshi/Pink Yoshi -- Dating
Merlee: Success!

Pink: !

Merlee: You have levitated the box! Congratulations!

Pink: I think I’ve got it! I’m really getting better at this!

Merlee: Now you must try to lift the final object: me…

Pink: Ok! I’m ready!

Merlee: Just do as you have done before. Picture only me.

Pink: *sigh* Okay, Pink… You can do this…

Bowser/Bowser Jr. -- Father + Son

Jr: Shut up, Dad! You’ll cause a scene!

Bowser: Ugh!

Jr: Now, come on! We’ll find this thing eventually!

Bowser: Graah! I don’t even know where we are!!!

Jr: Neither do I! Let’s just pick a direction and go!

Bowser: Fine… Let’s turn right here!

Jr: Fine…

Bowser: Fine…

Jr: …

Bowser: … blue cactus?

Jr: Argh!

Bowser: What?

Jr: Stop saying that!

Bowser: But it’s a blue cactus!!!

Jr: I don’t care!

Bowser: Look! Look up ahead!

Jr: What?

Bowser: It’s the clue!

Jr: It is?

Bowser: Yeah! I see a red and yellow flag on a tree!

Jr: I don’t see it…

Bowser: How could you not see it? It’s right there!

Jr: Dad! All I see up ahead is sand!

Bowser: We’re here!

Jr: What?!

Bowser: We’re right next to the tree!!!

Jr: Dad…? Are you okay?

Bowser is grabbing the air.

Jr: Dad! Dad!

Bowser: Why can’t I touch it?

Jr: Dad! You’re seeing a mirage!!!

Bowser: Huh? What?! Are you serious?

Jr: *sigh* Unfortunately, yes…

Bowser: Ugh…

Yoshi/Pink Yoshi -- Dating
Yoshi: Come on, Pink… Come on…

Pink: Mmmmmmmmmmmmm…

Merlee: Your mental power is very strong! Now… focus it!

Pink: Rise… rise… rise… rise… rise…

Merlee: Almost!

Pink: Rrrrrrrr… RISE!!!

Merlee: Wah!!! Excellent! You have done it! Spectacular! Here is your next clue.

Pink: Huh? Oh, really? Wow! Thanks!

Yoshi: You did it, Pink!!!

Pink: I know! It was so awesome!

Yoshi: Was it?

Pink: Yeah! Now I can levitate things!

Yoshi: Cool! You’ll have to show me sometime!

Pink: Sure!


Yoshi: Caution, Yield ahead!

Pink: Ooh! Let’s hurry it up!

Mario/Luigi -- Brother Superheroes
Mario: Those rotten Bowsers!

Luigi: What are you doing?

Mario: Drawing on their picture!

Luigi: Oh! Heh…Give me a pen!

Mario: No! My pen!
