The Amazing Race MK

By Giga Bowser NS

EPISODE 9: Destination: Grass Land

Phil: Previously on the Amazing Race MK: Six teams set off from picturesque Yoshi’s Tropical Island, and raced to Sky Land.

Boo: We’re Boos!

Phil: An early flight put King Boo and Boo into a very strong lead, which was not thwarted until the end.

Phil, Replay: You’re team number 1!

Phil: A frustrating Detour and an even more frustrating Roadblock switched up the positions, pushing Mario and Luigi back to the front, and sending Yoshi and Pink Yoshi to the bottom. DK and Diddy were forced to switch Detour tasks when DK found it difficult to fit into a Kuribo’s Shoe. Eventually, it was them who succumbed to last place, and they were eliminated. Now, five teams remain. Who will be eliminated... next?

The opening plays with a new Red X over DK and Diddy.

Phil: This is the cloud portion of Sky Land, a powerful region that covers both land and sky. After climbing up the majestic Spiral Tower, tourists find themselves here. And in the heart of Sky Land’s cloudy landscape is the Sky Land Castle. This was the eighth Pit Stop... in a race around the MK. Teams arrived here for a mandatory rest period. Can Yoshi and Pink climb out of being in last place for the first time? And will King Boo and Boo continue their newfound winning trend? King Boo and Boo, who were the first to arrive at 3:15 PM... will depart, at 3:15 AM.


King Boo: Hmm... Fly to Grass Land.

Phil: Teams must now cross many borders, and head towards the luscious green Grass Land. As hills roll on for miles, the castle sits in the center of it all. Teams are headed from the Sky Land Castle to the Grass Land Castle. Serving the same purpose, it stands tall over the rest of Grass Land. Teams will find their next clue there. The Sky Land Airport is located on the ground portion of the land, so teams will need to find a way down… (Camera shows a single cloud)

Boo: Ehehehe! The location of the Boos’ first sighting of Mario.

King Boo: No. You’re forgetting back when Mario was a baby and rode around on Yoshi.

Boo: Oh… Right…


Boo: No way! I’m not jumping down there!!!

King Boo smacks him.

Boo: Owww!

King Boo: You incompetent moron! How many times must I remind you? WE’RE BOOS!

Boo: … Oh… I see…

King Boo: Yes, now come on.

King Boo flies over the edge and flies down to the ground.

Boo: But I’m still afraid of heights…

King Boo: Hmmm… Where is everyone?

Boo: It’s like a ghost town here, and we’re the only citizens.

King Boo: … That was horrible.

Boo: What?!

King Boo: Ah, excuse me, sir.

Apook: Waaah!!! Erm… Y-yess...?

King Boo: -_- We’re trying to get on a flight to Grass Land.

Apook: A flight? But you’re…

Boo: We know! Boos! We still need a flight.

Apook: Well, I’m sorry. The ticket counters do not open for business until 6:00. However, a travel agency is opening over there at 3:40, so you could check that out.

King Boo: Hmm… Okay, thank you.

Mario/Luigi -- Brother Superheroes – 3:29 AM

Mario: All right! Make your way to Grass Land!

Luigi: Larry!

Mario: Larry! Yeah!

***Mario: So, as we go around to these quote “exotic” places, we’re always reminiscing about our adventures.

***Luigi: You get to do most of the reminiscing. I’m always left behind!

***Mario: Oh, stop being a baby!


Luigi: I don’t really trust you, Mario!

Mario: I’m your brother!

Luigi: Yeah, but I don’t think it’s safe at all to jump off the edge of these clouds and land on that tiny little cloud! I could die!

Mario: But I did it! I’m fine!

Luigi: No! I refuse to do it!

Mario: Luigi! Behind you! It’s a monster!!!

Luigi: Wha?! Monster?! Yaaa-

Mario: Here he comes!

Luigi: -aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhh! Oof…

Mario: See? Told you you’d be safe!

Luigi: Ugh… Just don’t make me do it again…

King Boo/Boo -- Ghosts
Boo: Oh, your Majesty! Mario and Luigi have arrived.

Mario/Luigi -- Brother Superheroes
Mario: Hey Boos.

Boo: It doesn’t open ‘til 6

Mario: 6?! What?! Aww man! Everyone’s gonna catch up!

Boo: Yeah, but… Mnnff!

King Boo: Shhhh!

Luigi: What was that?

King Boo: He just said that the stores are open 24/7, so you won’t be bored.

Mario: Hmm…

Bowser/Bowser Jr. -- Father + Son – 3:36 AM
Bowser: Grrr… *riiiiii*-Raaaaa-*iiiip*-aaah!

Jr: Lay off the coffee, will ya?

Bowser: Hmpf… Fly to Grass Land

Jr: Ah… That was Iggy

Bowser: Larry. Iggy was first in Dinosaur Land…

Jr: Ah…

King Boo/Boo -- Ghosts
King Boo: C’mon Boo… Let’s go to that place…

Boo: Ack! Noo! No no! I can’t!

King Boo: Boo! Come! We’re going to… that place!

Boo: But I can’t! I won’t go!

King Boo: COME! You can play Space Invaders some other time!!!

Boo: Awww…

Mario/Luigi -- Brother Superheroes
Both: Zzzzz…

Luigi: Nhmph… N… I dunwanna wear the bow…

King Boo/Boo -- Ghosts
King Boo: Hello?

There’s a Paratroopa inside the room. She looks up.

Alex: Oh! Hi there.

Boo: Hi there. We’re trying to get to Grass Land.

King Boo: Absolutely as soon as possible!

Alex: Okay, let me check my computer.

Boo: Do you mind if we close the door?

Alex: Er… Not at all…

Bowser/Bowser Jr. -- Father + Son
Bowser: I KNOW Mario used it.

Jr: Then jump!!!

Bowser: But I’m like three times bigger than him! Will the cloud hold me?!

Jr: Yes! I know this cloud very well! I’ll bet you anything it will hold you!

Bowser: Ugh… Well… Here goes nothingggg! Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhh!!!

Bowser Jr. is looking up as his father falls, but pretty soon he is looking down, through the hole in the cloud.

Jr: Dad!

Bowser: Yaaaaaaaa-ugh! Darn it!!!

Toad/Toadette -- Married

Toadette: Where we goin’, huh? Huh? Huh?

Toad: To… Grass Land!!!

Toadette: Awesome! I’ve always wanted to go there!

Toad: You’ve always wanted to go everywhere we’ve been on this race!

Toadette: Yeah! Hahah!

***Toadette: What is Toad to me? Well, without him I’d need to call tech support to program the VCR!

***Toad: Hey!


Toadette: You’re absolutely sure we can jump down to that little cloud there and it will break our fall?

Toad: Yes! I’ve seen Mario do it!

Toadette: Yeah, but he’s Mario! MARIO!

Toad: So? We’re TOAD AND TOADETTE! We can do anything!!!

Toadette: Okay… Here…

Toad: We…


King Boo/Boo -- Ghosts
Boo: Have you found anything?

Alex: I’m checking your options. I want to make sure you get there as soon as possible.

King Boo: Sounds good!

Alex: Actually, could you open the door? It’s getting kinda warm in here…

Boo: Er… Okay…

Boo flies over to the door, but catches a glimpse of Bowser outside the window.

Boo: Uh oh… Trouble at 11:00!

Alex: What?

King Boo: Sorry. We’re in a competition. We’re trying to arrive in Grass Land before those other guys out there.

Alex: …

Boo: So could the door remain closed?

Alex: All right! You two sound like you need a helping hand!

Bowser/Bowser Jr. -- Father + Son
Bowser: Jr, look. Mario.

Jr: Catching Zs!

Bowser: Yeah…

Jr: Do something to him, Dad.

Bowser sneaks up to Mario, takes a deep breath, and…



Mario flies 8 feet in the air

Bowsers: Waaa ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha haaa!!!

Mario/Luigi -- Brother Superheroes
Mario: Grrr… Bowser! What do you think you’re doing?

Bowser: Having fun!

Luigi: Mn… Malibu Stacy…

Bowser: … Umm… And what are you clowns doing?

Mario: Waiting for 6 so the ticket counters will open…


King Boo/Boo -- Ghosts
Alex: Okay… I’ve found something pretty cool.

King Boo: Let’s hear it.

Alex: Well, the fastest flight, as Murphy’s Law would have it, is full. Now, the second fastest flight is Desert Airways, connecting in Desert Land. However, Desert Land is known for sandstorms and whatnot, so delays are next to inevitable. So, I looked some more, and found the Sky Air Flight that leaves an hour later. It’s direct, so there shouldn’t be any delay, but the choice is yours…

King Boo: Ooooh…

Boo: What should we do, your Majesty?

King Boo: … I think Alex is right about the delays in Desert Land. Any team that takes those airways will get lost in the dust. So, let’s do it. Book us on Sky Air.

Alex: Okay… There’s only… two… seats left on that anyway!

Boo: Sounds good!

King Boo: Now, go ahead and play Space Invaders


King Boo and Alex: 0.0

Mario/Luigi -- Brother Superheroes
Luigi: Nn… P.lais… Pink’s not my… thing… hn…

Toad/Toadette -- Married
Toad: We’re here!!!

Bowser/Bowser Jr. -- Father + Son
Bowser: You’re early!!!

Toadette: What?

Jr: Wait ‘til 6.

Toad: Awww…

Yoshi/Pink Yoshi -- Dating – 4:09 PM
***Yoshi: This isn’t good. We’re in dead last.

***Pink: We’re gonna have to pick it up!

Yoshi: All… right… Let’s go!


Yoshi: Oh! Whoops… That didn’t rip right! Just the tip came off.

Pink: Ahh! You goof! Here! Give it! Ngggggg…

The camera is shaking

Pink: Now you’ve got the cameraman laughing!

Yoshi: Ahh! Give it! I’ll bite it open! Grrr… rrstrrsrrrr… Gah! Got it!

Pink: Make your way… Grass Land! Blah de blah… Another castle!

Yoshi: Cool!


Yoshi: Don’t worry! We’ll jump together!

Pink: It’s such a long drop… I’m scared

Yoshi: Come on! Let’s go! 3… 2…

Pink: 32… 77… 234… 245 645 264…

Yoshi: Go!

Pink: Waaaaaaa-

Mario/Luigi -- Brother Superheroes
Luigi: grrsnffs… Pl… Dress… ugly… you… all right, I’ll wear it… mnf…

Bowser/Bowser Jr. -- Father + Son

Toad/Toadette -- Married
Toad: Come on! Let me try!

King Boo/Boo -- Ghosts
Boo: No! I’m getting a high score!!!

Toad: Let me play!


Boo: Ahh! You fool! Now I died!

Toad: *snicker* You’re already dead…

Bowser/Bowser Jr. -- Father + Son

Yoshi/Pink Yoshi -- Dating
Yoshi: Come on! Let’s hurry! We can still catch u-

Everyone is waiting in the lobby

Yoshi: -p… Pfffttt… What did I tell you? We caught up!

Pink: ?_?


The camera shows everyone lounging


The camera shows four ticket booths beside each other


The camera shows four ticket sales persons walking up to each one


The camera shows Mario talking with the others. Then they all get up. The four teams go into a different line each, with King Boo and Boo mysteriously hanging back.

The four closed signs flip to open, almost in unison.

Mario, Bowser, Toad and Yoshi: WE NEED TO GET TO GRASS LAND, NOW!

Ticket Sellers: 0_o

A dramatic theme starts, as the rush to get on a flight begins.

Phil: There are three available flights for the teams to take. King Boo and Boo are already on the Sky Air flight, which has room for one more team. There is also the Desert Air flight, which gets in earlier, but is subject to massive delays. Finally, the two remaining teams will have to take the Water Air flight, departing an hour and a quarter after the Sky Air flight.

Mario/Luigi -- Brother Superheroes
Mario: What’s the fastest flight outta here?

Yoshi/Pink Yoshi -- Dating
Yoshi: Please hurry! We’re in a competition!

Kuno: Okay, okay. I have Desert Air listed here as the fastest flight, connecting through Desert Land.

Toad/Toadette -- Married
Kos: …connecting through Desert Land

Toadette: How many seats are available on that?

Kos: … Quite a few, actually

Bowser/Bowser Jr. -- Father + Son
Jr: Dad! I remember Morton saying how Desert Land was sandstormy all the time.

Bowser: Sandstormy, eh?

Yoshi/Pink Yoshi -- Dating
Pink: Yoshi… Yoshi… let’s not, ok?

Yoshi: Why?

Pink: It could be bad weather in Desert Land. I don’t think it will do us any good…

Toad/Toadette -- Married
Toad: Are there any flights faster than that one?

Kos: … No.

Toadette: Hmm…

Bowser/Bowser Jr. -- Father + Son
Krés: So… After the Desert Air Flight, we have Sky Air as the fastest flight.

Jr: Dad! Try to get that one!

Bowser: Yeah, I think we’re gonna go ahead and book that flight.

Krés: Okay.

Mario/Luigi -- Brother Superheroes
Luigi: We’ve decided to go for the Sky Air flight.

Kuno: Sure thing, one moment please!

Mario: Please hurry, we’re in a competition.

Dramatic music plays as the camera swerves between these two teams.

Toad/Toadette -- Married
Toadette: Should we go for it?

Toad: I think so! It’s the fastest flight! So why not?

Toadette: I agree. Let’s go for the Desert Air flight.

Kos: Okay. Here are your tickets. Have a nice flight!

Mario/Luigi -- Brother Superheroes
Bowser/Bowser Jr. -- Father + Son
Determined looks are on the faces of all 4 as dramatic music plays.

Mario: Come on…

Bowser: We need this… We need a first!

Yoshi/Pink Yoshi -- Dating
Yoshi: Wait! What about Desert Land’s weather? Can you check for us?

Ku: Sure…

Pink: Hm…

Ku: It is storming right now. Sandstorms are very strong.

Yoshi: Ugh… Okay then, could you-

Mario/Luigi -- Brother Superheroes
Bowser/Bowser Jr. -- Father + Son
???: You’re on the flight!

All: !!!

Krés: Here are your tickets! Have a nice flight.

Bowser: Excellent!

Jr: Yeaaah!!!

Mario: No! Augh!

Kuno: Hm, yes… They just snatched up the last tickets…

Desert Air Flight – Toad/Toadette
***Toad: We managed to get on the first flight outta here. No one else managed to get on, for some reason.

***Toadette: We figured they couldn’t even find this flight…

***Toad: You know how ticket salesmen sometimes are…

Sky Air Flight – King Boo/Boo, Bowser/Bowser Jr.
***Boo: Our meeting with the travel agent really paid off.

***King Boo: We’re guaranteed first or second now.

***Boo: Hopefully first!

***King Boo: Obviously first! Do you think we’ll come in second? Ha!

***Bowser: So, apparently King Boo and Boo snuck off somewhere and got the last tickets to this flight, so now we’re with them

***Jr: They’re sneaky and strong… A good target…

Water Air Flight – Mario/Luigi, Yoshi/Pink Yoshi
***Mario: Well, we’re not all that happy. Being in last place stinks…

***Yoshi: We’re looking for some angle that will allow us to grab first place.

***Luigi: It’s gonna happen, so watch out!

The plane flies into the sunrise.

[Exciting Music]

Phil: Teams are now on their way to Grass Land. When they arrive, they will need to make their way on foot to the Grass Land castle. Their next clue is waiting for them there. But, who will arrive first?

Desert Air Flight
Toad/Toadette -- Married
Toadette: Wow… Look at the storm, Toad…

Toad: Yeah… I can barely see out of the window…

Toadette: Do you see our flight?

They’re in the terminal

Toad: No, I can’t see it... All I see is the word delayed numerous times…

Toadette: It’s the Desert Air flight to Grass Land. It’s gotta be up there somewhere…

Toad: It’s hard to find it, there’s so many fl- Oh! There it… is…

Toadette: Where?

Toad: Over there in delayedsville…

Sky Air Flight
King Boo/Boo -- Ghosts
Boo: Ahh… Grass Land! Home of the very first Haunted Fortress.

King Boo: We’re not here to sightsee! We need to get to the castle

Bowser/Bowser Jr. -- Father + Son
Bowser: Huh… It feels good to be in the lead… I like it.

Jr: Let’s try to keep it that way!

King Boo/Boo -- Ghosts
King Boo: Come, Boo. We have to follow this road to get to the castle.

Boo: You sure?

King Boo: I’m pretty sure. That sign there says “Castle, this way”.

Boo: Oh…

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

Jr: In Grass Land.

Bowser: No! I mean in relation to anything. As soon as I see something I recognize, then I’ll know where Larry’s target is.

Jr: Oh… The castle.

King Boo/Boo -- Ghosts
King Boo: Come on, Boo! If we hurry, we’ll pass those two!

Boo: Yeah!

Bowser/Bowser Jr. -- Father + Son
Jr: We shoulda picked up a map…

Bowser: Hold it! Stop!

Jr: Wha…?

Bowser: Look at this!

Jr: … Umm… It’s a shell…

Bowser: Not just any shell! Look!

Jr: Um… There’s a blue bandana on it…

Bowser: Yes! This is the shell that Slam said he lost.

Jr: Slam? The very first Hammer Bro Mario defeated in your third attempt?

Bowser: Yes! And I remember where he was positioned. Right near the castle. Do you see a river anywhere, Jr?

Jr: Hmm… Oh… Over there…

Bowser: That’s not a river. It’s actually a really big moat. We need to cross that bridge and go over that hill. The castle lies yonder!

Jr: Oh, good! Let’s go then!

King Boo/Boo -- Ghosts
Boo: Okay. This is a river.

King Boo: Good eye…

Boo: Oh… Those others are on their way! Let’s hurry!

King Boo: The castle must be over this hill here…

Boo: Oh nooo! It’ll be soooo hard to climb!!!

King Boo: … WE’RE-

Boo: I know! I was being sarcastic!

King Boo: Well don’t!

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

Bowser: …

Jr: …

Bowser: What?

Jr: I just realized what you said…

Bowser: Hm?

Jr: “The castle lies yonder”?

Bowser: Oh… Yeah?

Jr: “Yonder”?

Bowser: Yeah?

Jr: You’re odd…

Bowser: Ugh…

King Boo/Boo -- Ghosts
They crest the hill.

King Boo: Ahh! There it is! Grass Land Castle!

Boo: W- Um… It looks exactly the same as the Sky Land castle…

King Boo: You think so?

Boo: EXACTLY the same!

King Boo: … Come on, let’s go.

They head to the door.

Boo: Hello?

King: Ah! Welcome to Grass Land Castle, racers!

King Boo: Greetings, royalty! I too am a king!

King : How nice! Here’s your next clue! Good luck!

Boo: Yeah!


Boo: DE-

King Boo: -TOUR!

Phil: A Detour is a choice between two tasks, each with its own pros and cons! This detour involves two common activities to the people of Grass Land. Spelunking… or Skydiving. In Spelunking, teams must head down to the Grass Land Plains, then follow the arrows to a nearby cave. They must then explore the cave until they find their next clue, hidden within. This task may require some physical abilities, but strong teams will do well. In Skydiving, teams must go to the Grass Land Plains, where a small plane will take them up to 10,000 feet. They must then each perform a tandem skydive with a professional. Their clue will be waiting on the ground. This task is potentially frightening, but will require no physical prowess at all.

Both: …


King Boo: *sigh…* All right, Boo. We’ll skydive!


***Boo: I’ve always wanted to skydive! Like for real, not just flying down to the ground really fast! You know, with an actual parachute!

***King Boo: We’re always flying at high altitudes. This should be easy.

Bowser/Bowser Jr. -- Father + Son
Jr: Come on, Dad! You’re so slow!

Bowser: Ugh… You’re younger than me!

Jr: So? Hurry up!

Bowser: This hill is steep!

Jr: You’re almost there!

Bowser: I’m halfway!

Jr: Whatever! Hey! I see the Boos! They’re heading away from the castle! HURRY UP!!!


Jr: Meep…

Toad/Toadette -- Married
Toad: Is it showing any signs of letting up?

Poka: I’m afraid not. The sandstorm is really rough. All flights are still delayed!

Toadette: Aww, come on!!!

Bowser/Bowser Jr. -- Father + Son
Bowser: Ugh! Finally we’re here!

Jr: Look at this place! It’s the same as the Sky Land one!

Bowser: Yeah! That’s what made them so easy to attack!

King: Ah! Welcome to Grass Land Castle, racers!

Bowser: Yeah, yeah, yeah. Hey! You remember me?

King: How nice! Here’s your next clue! Good luck!

Both: …


Jr: Detour! Spelunking or Skydiv- Ahh! No no no! Not skydiving!

Bowser: All right then. We’ll spelunk!

Jr: Is that a word?

King Boo/Boo -- Ghosts
Boo: These are the plains?

King Boo: Goomba!


King Boo: Are these the plains?


King Boo: There you go!

Boo: …

King Boo: Now where’s the plane!

Boo: Over there!!! Yah! I’m so excited!

King Boo: Yeah, let’s just go.

Paka: Hi there! Are you two ready to Sky Dive?

Boo: Yeah! Yeah yeah yeah!!! Whooooo!!!

Paka: Okay, let’s go!

Bowser/Bowser Jr. -- Father + Son
Bowser: Hey, Goomba!

Goom: Yes, sir?

Bowser: Point to the plains!

Goom: Yes sir! I… uh… mnf… Oh, right… No arms…

Bowser: Hahahahaha! I always get a kick outta that!

Goom: … Follow me…

King Boo/Boo -- Ghosts
Boo: Whoooooo-

Bowser/Bowser Jr. -- Father + Son
Bowser: Where’s the arrows?

Jr: They’re over here, Dad!

Bowser: Ah! I see.

They walk down the small trail

Bowser: This is gonna be cool.

Jr: Sure. Let’s just do it.

Bowser: There’s the cave!

Jr: Ooooh… Cool…

King Boo/Boo -- Ghosts
Boo: -ooooooooooo-

Bowser/Bowser Jr. -- Father + Son
The Bowsers get suited up in spelunking clothes and equipment, and begin their descent into the caves.

Jr: Dad! What’s taking so long?!

Bowser: Ugh… I just have a very hard time going down ladders.

Jr: Well come on! We’re losing time!

[Problematic Music]

Poka is talking on a phone… somehow…

Toad: *groan*

Toadette: Come on… Come on…

Poka: Hmm…

Toad: …

Toadette: …

Poka: Okay. The Desert Air flight is set to go!

Toad: Ohh!

Toadette: Thank you!!! Let’s go, hon!

King Boo/Boo -- Ghosts
Boo: -oooooooooooooooo!!!

Paka: Okay, folks. We are getting close to 10,000 feet. Get with your partners.

TJ: Hi, Boo. I’m TJ. I’ll be jumping with you today.

Travis: And I’m Travis. I’ll be jumping with you, King Boo.

Boo: HEY! Don’t call His Majesty anything but His Majesty!!!

Bowser/Bowser Jr. -- Father + Son
Jr: Finally! Come on! Let’s go find that clue! It’s gotta be around here somewhere.

Bowser: Hm… I think the other teams are gonna land soon.

Jr: They are?!

Water Air Flight
Mario/Luigi -- Brother Superheroes
Mario: Come on! Let’s hurry! We need to catch up!

Luigi: I’m coming!

Mario: Yeah, hurry up, Princess!


Yoshi/Pink Yoshi -- Dating
Pink: Let’s go, hon! Lead me to the castle!

Yoshi: Yeah! I know where it is! I know! I’ve been there!

Luigi: Mario, which-

Mario: Don’t ask stupid questions! Just follow!

King Boo/Boo -- Ghosts
Boo: All right! We’re here! Aren’t we?

Paka: Yep! You’re all set to jump! Er… float off the edge!

King Boo: Heh heh heh…

Boo: Come on, TJ! Let’s go!!! Let’sGoLet’sGoLet’sGoLet’sGoLet’sGoLet’sGoLet’sGoLet’sGoLet’sGo

TJ: Al lright! 3… 2… 1… JUMP!

They leave the plane, and Boo’s face turns wild!


King Boo: Ugh…

Bowser/Bowser Jr. -- Father + Son
Bowser: Whoo… You see anything?

Jr: Nah! There’s so many twists and turns. And it’s so dark… It’s like a cave in here!

Bowser: What’s over there?

Jr: Hmm… Nothing but a pipe… a green p-AHHHHHH!!!

Bowser: What the?


Bowser: Does it have you?

Jr: No!

Bowser: … Then why are you screaming?

Jr: It’s scawy!!!

Bowser: Ugh… Come on!

Mario/Luigi -- Brother Superheroes
Mario: Remember this hill, Luigi?

Luigi: Shut up, Mario!

Mario: Hahahahaha!

***Mario: He tripped at the top and went rolling down the other side. Freakin’ hilarious!

***Luigi: …

Mario: Come on! Let’s go!

Luigi: Ah, the Grass Land Castle and all its identicalness.

Mario: Why did they do that…?

Yoshi/Pink Yoshi -- Dating
Pink: Where in the world are we going?

Yoshi: To Albuquerque. It’s just over that hill up there!

Pink: Oh! I see!!! XD

Yoshi: Oh wait… The castle actually IS over that hill…

Pink: *snicker*

Yoshi: Come on!

King Boo/Boo -- Ghosts
Travis: Okay, King Boo. It’s time for your jump!

King Boo: Yes. Let’s go!

They too leave the plane.

King Boo: Ee he he he hee!!! This is great!

Bowser/Bowser Jr. -- Father + Son
Bowser: Oh! What’s that up there?

Jr: Yaaaaah!!!

Bowser: It’s hard to see in here…

Jr: Yaaaaaaaaaaaaahhh!!!

Bowser: I think it’s the clue…


Bowser: It is! Ha! We got it!

He takes one.

Bowser: Come on, Jr. Let’s go!


Bowser: You can play with the Piranha Plants later…

Bowser uses his flame breath.

Piranha Plant: X_X

Jr: Th-th-th-th-thanks D-D-D-Dad…

Bowser: You never told me you had a phobia of Piranha Plants…

Jr: Yeah… Musta slipped my m-mind…


Bowser: Make your way to the… Grass Land Hills…

Phil: Teams must now travel through the beautiful but repetitive Grass Land, searching for this place: The Grass Land Hills, seemingly like any other place in this land, but natives will be able to distinguish it well. Teams will find their next clue here.

Bowser: Ugh… They sure have descriptive names here…

Jr: Let’s go, darn it!

Mario/Luigi -- Brother Superheroes
King: Ah! Welcome to Grass Land Castle, racers!

Mario: I remember you! You were transformed! You needed my help!

King: How nice! Here’s your next clue! Good Luck!

Luigi: O…kay… *Riiiiiiiiiiip*


Luigi: Hmm… Let’s go

Mario: Skydiving. Okay!

Luigi: What?!

Mario: Luigi… What would you prefer? Jumping tethered to a trained professional with a very handy parachute, or spelunking in a dark, unknown cave with numerous enemies?

Luigi: … You’ve made your point… *sigh* Let’s go skydive…

King Boo/Boo -- Ghosts
Boo: ThatWasAwesomeThatWasAwesomeThatWasAwesomeThatWasAwesomeThatWasAwesomeThatWasAwesome

TJ: Good luck, you guys!

Travis: Here’s your next clue!


King Boo: Make your way to the Grass Land Hills…

Boo: Hmm… I’m sure that’s somewhere near the fortress… Somewhere close…

King Boo: Yeah… We’ll find it…

Boo: Let’s go!

Bowser/Bowser Jr. -- Father + Son
Jr: Ahhh! It’s great to see the light of day again!

Bowser: That was wild… Okay. Where on Plit are the Grass Land Hills?


Bowser: *blinks*… How long have you been there?

Goom: The whole time, sir!

Bowser: … Uhh…

Yoshi/Pink Yoshi -- Dating
King: Ah! Welcome to Grass Land Castle, racers!

Yoshi: Glad to be here! Hey, why does your castle look just like the others?

King: How nice! Here’s your next clue! Good luck!

Yoshi: What? What’s nice? I asked you a question!

King: …

Yoshi: Hellooooooooooooooo?!

King: Insert Command. *Beeeeeep*

Both: 0.0

Pink: Let’s… let’s go, Yoshi…

Yoshi: Yeah…


Yoshi: Detour! Spelunking or…

Pink: The other one! The other one! I don’t wanna crawl through an icky cave…

Yoshi: Umm… That’s Skydiving…

Pink: … C-O-O-L!

Yoshi: Oh! There’s only one plane! Let’s hurry!!!

Mario/Luigi -- Brother Superheroes
Mario: These must be the fields…

Luigi: Plains.

Mario: Rolling landscapes! Whatever! ‘Scuse me, Goomba! Is this Grass Land Fields?

Goomu: Oh, no. That’s over there to the east…

Mario: Oh! I see.

Luigi: Huh? That makes no sense!

Yoshi/Pink Yoshi -- Dating
Pink: Where are we going?

Yoshi: We gotta find the Grass Land… Plains…

Pink: Where are the Grass Land Plains?

Yoshi: Do you know? Does anyone know?

Koopa: Yeah, it’s over that hill there.

Yoshi: Oh, ok…

Mario/Luigi -- Brother Superheroes
Luigi: No, I do not believe we should go over there. Grass Land Fields may be something completely different…

Mario: No. It couldn’t be. They’re the same thing! You’re crazy!

Luigi: Hm… Oh! Mario! Look! It’s the airplane! It’s right there!

Mario: Ughhh…

Luigi: And look who showed up…

Yoshi/Pink Yoshi -- Dating
Pink: Oh! There’s the Marios!

Yoshi: Come on! Let’s go!!!

They all run over.

Paka: Hi, folks! Welcome! Are you ready to skydive?!

Mario: Oh yeah!

Pink and Luigi: Sure…

Bowser/Bowser Jr. -- Father + Son
Bowser: Where is this place?!

Jr: I keep telling you to ask someone!

Bowser: Why? We’ve got Goom!

Jr: … You don’t pay attention, do you?

Bowser: Huh?


Goom: Follow me! Follow me! Follow! GAAK!

Koop: Stupid Goom! You stole money from my son!!!


Bowser: What? And where was I when this happened?


Bowser: Ah yes! ‘Tis a perfect plan! Steal Peach, bring her to my castle, and laugh as the Mushroom Kingdom lay in ruins! Bwa ha ha ha ha!


Bowser: …

Jr: Excuse me, where is Mushroom Hills?

Kuppa: You kidding me? It’s the most distinct landmark in all of Grass Land! It’s right over there!!!

Both: …

Bowser: What’s so special about it? It’s just a few hills…

Kuppa: Hahahahahaa! You’re an idiot!

Mario/Luigi -- Brother Superheroes

TJ: Hi, Mario! I’ll be jumping with you today.

Travis: And I’ll be jumping with you, Luigi.

Jason: Hi, Yoshi! I’ll be jumping with you today

Toews: And I’ll be jumping with you, Pink.

Luigi: Ok… Aren’t we high enough?

Paka: We’re only 7.000 feet up!

Pink: Ooggg…

King Boo/Boo -- Ghosts
Boo: I say… Do you have any idea where we are?

King Boo: This place does elude us.

Boo: I mean… everywhere you look, there’s hills! Every which way.

King Boo: …! MINION!

Boo: Yes?

Another Boo appears out of nowhere

Booka: Yes?

King Boo: Can you direct us to… um… ”Grass Land Hills”?

Booka: Yes sir, right in front of you. Keep going straight.

King Boo: Good

Boo: You’re good.

King Boo: Well… I could sense where he was…

Boo: Hm.

Mario/Luigi -- Brother Superheroes
Paka: Well, we have now approached 10,000 feet. We will now be jumping

Yoshi/Pink Yoshi -- Dating
Paka: Please get with your designated partners.

Mario: Ye-ha! Let’s-a go!

TJ: Are you ready?

Mario: Oh yeah!

TJ: 3… 2… 1…


TJ: … Jump…


They leave the plane.

Yoshi/Pink Yoshi -- Dating
Yoshi: Are you sure you want to go first?

Pink: Uh huh… Let’s just get it outta the way!

Yoshi: All right…

Toews: Are you ready to go?

Pink: No. Let’s go.

Yoshi: Love ya, hon!

Toews: 3, 2, 1… Jump!


Yoshi: Yeah… That’s my girl…

King Boo/Boo -- Ghosts
Boo: Ah! I see the clue! It’s on that hill up there…

King Boo: So… This is Grass Land Hills… I don’t see any distinguishing characteristics…

Boo: It’s incredible we actually managed to find it…


Boo: So? What’s up?

King Boo: Roadblock.

Phil: A Roadblock is a task that only one person may perform. And no person may do more than 6 Roadblocks on the entire race. This Roadblock will require teams to search for the pitstop, which is hidden in this pipe.

A pipe is shown sticking high into the air.

Phil: Teams will receive a pair of binoculars to use. The pipe with the pitstop is marked with an Amazing Race flag. Teams may go wherever they want to search for the pipe. However, the very best location is Coin Heaven, which can be accessed by finding the hidden Pink Note Block. When teams find this pipe, they may climb up the ladder, and check into the pitstop. The last team to check in here… will be eliminated. The non-participating team member must touch the nearby stone, which has been infused with magic. They will be teleported to the pitstop.

Boo: Which magic stone? This one? *touches* Waaa-

King Boo: *sweatdrop* Idiot… I guess I’m doing this one…

Yoshi/Pink Yoshi -- Dating
Yoshi: Here we goooo!!!

Jason: 3! 2! 1! Gooo!!!

Yoshi: Wheeeeeeee!!! Waaaa-hoooo!!! AWESOMEEE!!!

Yoshi/Pink Yoshi -- Dating
Pink: Yaah! Incoming!

Mario: Woah! *Ducks*

Pink: Oof…

Mario: Hey Pink. How was the jump?

Pink: Oi… I n-n-never want to do that again… That was too wild for me…

Mario: But you did it. Aren’t you glad you did?

Pink: Oh yeah…

Bowser/Bowser Jr. -- Father + Son
Bowser: This is stupid. It’s just some hills. Nothing different than any others…

Jr: I agree… *riiiiiiiip* Roadblock.

Bowser: Hm… ”Who can look good?”

Jr: What?! That makes no sense…

Bowser: Well… I’m the handsomest Koopa in all the land! I’ll do it!

Jr: Mokay… Hmm… Okay. You’re taking those binoculars, running around Grass Land, and looking for a single pipe with the Amazing Race flag on it.

Bowser: AWW!!!

Jr: And I’m supposed to touch-

Bowser: Hm? Touch what? ... Jr? ... Where’d he go? ... Oh well…

Mario/Luigi -- Brother Superheroes
Mario: So… Where in the world is Luigi? What’s the pansy doing?


Travis: Ugh… We’re going, okay? You will NOT die.

Luigi: Mamaaaa!!! *cries*

Travis: 3…

Luigi: Wah wah wah!

Travis: 2…

Luigi: Wah wah!

Travis: 1…

Luigi: Wah!

Travis: Jump!



Mario: Ugh… I’m sure I’m not related to him…

Yoshi/Pink Yoshi -- Dating
Yoshi: Yeah! That was fun!

Pink: Good! You’re here. Let’s get outta here!

Yoshi: Didja have fun?

Pink: READ!!!

Yoshi: Oh… *Riiiiiiiiiiip* Grass Land Hills.

Pink: What? Which hills?

Yoshi: No idea…

Desert Air Flight
Toad/Toadette -- Married
Toad: Ugh… Finally we arrive…

Toadette: That was not a very fun experience…

***Toad: Us? Give up? You’re crazy!

***Toadette: We just played like we were in first place! Optimistic…

King Boo: Boo’s Partner
King Boo: Ugh. This is ridiculous… I can’t see anything. Maybe if I fly up to that pipe… Hmm…

He looks around through the binoculars.

King Boo: There’s lots of pipes around here. I have to find just one?

Bowser: Bowser Jr’s Partner
Bowser is just staring through the binoculars.

Bowser: I can’t see a darn thing…

Mario/Luigi -- Brother Superheroes
Mario: Finally, he arrives…


Mario: Luigi…



Luigi: 0.0… Oh… Wah?

Mario: No wah. Let’s get outta here. We’re falling behind. *Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiip*

Luigi: The Grass Land Hills?

Mario: Yeah! I’ve been there!

Luigi: You have?! … So you know where they are?

Mario: Yeah.

Luigi: Mn…

Toad/Toadette -- Married
Toad: So this is the castle?

Toadette: It looks just the same…

King: Ah! Welcome to Grass Land Castle, racers!

Toad: Hi. How many teams have been here before?

King: How nice! Here’s your next clue! Good luck!

Both: ???


Toad: Detour

Toadette: Let’s just do the skydive. It’ll be faster, and we definitely need to catch up.

Bowser: Bowser Jr’s Partner
Bowser is near a formation of bricks, making no particular shape.

Bowser: These binoculars are useless. I can’t find anything with them… Grrr… This is really frustrating. I wish Jr. had done this. Ugh… There’s too many block formations in the way!!! Hmmm… This one’s pretty tall… Maybe I can see something from on top of it. Hup!

He jumps up, but immediately falls down after striking something not visible.

Bowser: Augh! What the?

The air shimmers for a moment before taking the form of a floating pink block with a musical note on it.

Bowser: Where did that come from? Ow… That hurt… Ugh… Oh well. It’s just a stepping stone, it makes my job easier.

He hops up on it, and is immediately flung upwards faster than the speed of sound.



He flails his arms around for a while, before landing on a cloud.

Bowser: Oof… What the? Where am I? What just happened? I’m… on some sort of cloud…? What in the world is going on? ... Woah… I can see everything… Hmm… Let’s try to find that pipe…

Yoshi/Pink Yoshi -- Dating
Yoshi: Excuse me… I need directions to Grass Land Hills.

PK: Heh… You’re not from around here… are you? How could anyone possibly miss the majestic Grass Land Hills? They’re straight in front of you. Just keep going.

Pink: … I don’t… see anything…

Yoshi: Me neither... but let’s follow his advice and go forwards…

Bowser: Bowser Jr’s Partner
Bowser: Hmmm… Pipe with a flag… Hmm… Where are you…?

He does a full 360.

Bowser: Oh… Hmm… Is that… YES! I FOUND IT!!! OH, YES! OH SWEET!!!

He looks around for about 10 seconds.


Yoshi/Pink Yoshi -- Dating
Pink: Right up there?

Yoshi: Hm… Yeah… I think I can see the clue box…

Mario/Luigi -- Brother Superheroes
Mario: Hurry up, Luigi! It’s right ahead!

Luigi: How in the world do you know where you’re going?! This is like a maze without walls!

Bowser: Bowser Jr’s Partner
Bowser: Oh… That pipe should lead me down off these… clouds…

He jumps in and reappears in what is commonly known as “Grass-1”.

Bowser: Hmmm… I need to get my bearings to find the pipe again… Where’s that strange arrangement of blocks…? Hmmmm… Oh! I see it!... And there’s the pipe! Yes! Pitstop, here I come!!!

King Boo: Boo’s Partner
King Boo: … I don’t even know where I am anymore!!! There’s nothing big enough here to look out from… Ugh… This is not good…

Yoshi/Pink Yoshi -- Dating
Yoshi: Finally! Here’s the clue!

Pink: How does anyone recognize this place? It’s… a hill… Just a hill…


Yoshi: Roadblock… Hmm… It appears to have something to do with… Wait… I don’t know… Pink, who should do it?


Yoshi: 0.0 Uhh…

Pink: What? Oh, sorry… ”Someone who Looks Good”… Well… I think you’re pretty handsome, Yoshi! You do it!

Yoshi: Okay…

Bowser/Bowser Jr. -- Father + Son
Bowser: Ugh… Stupid ladders… My arms are too small! UUGGGGHHHHHH!!! Oooooff… *pant* Well… I’m here. Took me long enough… Hopefully we’re not eliminated… Down we gooooooooooo!!!

Phil stands inside a decorated cave at the top of a set of stairs. Nearby are Bowser Jr, Boo, and Pink Yoshi.

Jr: Dad!!! Finally!!! You made it!

Bowser: Hey Son! Come on! Let’s go see Phil!

Jr: Yeaaaaah!

Phil: Bowser and Jr… Heh… You’re team number… 1!!!

Bowser: What?!

Jr: Yeah! You’re the first one here!

Bowser: No way! I don’t believe you!

Phil: Haha! Congratulations. I have some good news for you. As the winners of this leg of the race… you have won…

Bowser: What? What have we won?

Phil: 1,000 coins!

Bowser: Nuh… Really? Wow! That’s great!

Jr: Cool! Now you can buy me Super Smash Bros. Brawl!!!

Mario/Luigi -- Brother Superheroes
Luigi: I don’t know how you do it, Mario… I’m confused, tired… and I think I’m hallucinating…

Mario: Say what?

Luigi: King Boo is way over there looking at us with binoculars… I think…

King Boo: Boo’s Partner
King Boo: Shoot! The Mario Bros. have arrived! Where is that pipe?

Mario/Luigi -- Brother Superheroes

Mario: It’s a Roadblock. Who’s doin’ it?

Luigi: What is it?

Mario: It’s for someone who… ”looks good”.

Luigi: Oh! Definitely me! Definitely me!

Mario: What? You don’t think I look good?

Luigi: Just let me do it!

Yoshi: Pink Yoshi’s Partner
Yoshi: I must have looked through every inch of Grass Land. This thing’s just not appearing. What should I do?!

???: Use the force…

Yoshi: ??? Huh? Who’s that?

Keepa: Oh, sorry… I just felt like saying that…

Mario/Luigi -- Brother Superheroes
Luigi: I have to do WHAT?!

King Boo: Boo’s Partner
King Boo: Looooook oooouuuuuutttt!!!

Yoshi: Huh?

Yoshi looks up, and King Boo comes flying in from above, burning up upon re-entry


King Boo smashes into Yoshi, and they both go tumbling to the bottom of the pipe.

Pink: What?!

Yoshi: PINK! GO!

Pink: Aaah!

King Boo: BOO! Hurry up!!!

They scramble to get on the mat

Yoshi: Ugh… g…ah! Here! TIME! STOP THE CLOCK!!!

Phil: Yoshi and Pink… You’re team number 2.

Pink: Yes! Oh, that’s great! Good job, Yoshi!

Phil: Come on in, guys! King Boo and Boo… You’re team number 3.

Toad/Toadette -- Married
Toad: Are we almost there? We have to hurry.

Toadette: That Koopa said it was just up here.

Luigi: Mario’s Partner
Luigi: I can’t find this thing!!! It’s hiding from me!!!

Toad/Toadette -- Married

Toad: I’m hurrying!

Luigi: Mario’s Partner

Toad/Toadette -- Married

Toad: Roadblock! “Who’s really good looking”.

Toadette: Haha! I get it. It’s who’s good at looking. As in looking for stuff.

Toad: Oh… I guess I’ll do it.

Luigi: Mario’s Partner
Luigi: *huff… huff…* Gotta hurry! Gotta get to the pitstop… Woah… That’s a big ladder!

Toad: Toadette’s Partner
Toad: So… I need to find a pipe with a flag… Oh boy… That’s not gonna be easy… Where do I start?

Mario/Luigi -- Brother Superheroes
Luigi hops down the pipe.

Mario: Oh yeah! Good job, Luigi!

Luigi: Hooray! Come on! Let’s check in!

Phil: …

Mario: Yeah yeah, Phil…

Phil: Mario and Luigi… You’re team number 4!

Luigi: Sweeeeeeet!!! We made it!

Toad: Toadette’s Partner
Toad: I can’t find it… I’ve been looking for hours… This thing is just nowhere to be found…

Toad: The sun’s gonna set soon… Where is this pipe…

Toad: Soon it’ll be too hard to see… Come on… Oh! That must be it!!!

Toadette: Hey honey! You found it… Good…

Toad: Yeah… Come on. Let’s go.

Toadette: *sigh…* Hey Phil.

Phil: Toad and Toadette… You are the last team to arrive.

Toad: Yeah. I know.

Phil: I’m very sorry to tell you that you’ve both been eliminated from the race.

Toadette: Awww… Can’t you just give us one more chance?

Toad: Shoot! That stinks. Oh well… We had a wonderful time.

***Toad: Toadette… She’s my wife… And I wouldn’t change a single thing about her.

***Toadette: I love my little Toady. He completes me. I don’t know what I’d do without him.

***Toad: We were pretty close. It’s too bad we had to lose in the end…

***Toadette: But at least we still have each other…

The credits roll.
