The Amazing Race MK II

By Giga Bowser NS

Episode 11
Title: Anyone wanna trade?

Phil: Previously on, The Amazing Race MK! 5 teams set off from the delicious Chocolate Island and raced to Yoshi’s Island. The tropical paradise took some teams by surprise, and created a very enjoyable leg. A three-way battle ensued for the race’s final Fast Forward. It involved eating a light lunch…

*Shot of the food*

Phil: … of epic proportions. Booster and Snifit were the victors, leaving competitors Kooper & Koops floundering. The race really took form on the Yoshi Racetracks, where teams raced against Olympic Yoshis. Kooper and Koops tried their best, but in the end, they couldn’t complete the task… and were eliminated. Four teams remain… who will be eliminated… next?

The opening plays with a new Red X over Kooper & Koops.

Phil: This… is the stunning and spectacular Yoshi’s Island. The perfect vacation spot, many famous events have taken place here, including the Mario Grand Prix, the Power Tennis Championship, and the Sluggers League. Towering over the many tropical locales of the island is this place: The Icy Mountain Range. These frozen peaks… were the ninth Pit Stop… in a race around the MK. Teams arrived here for a mandatory rest period. Only four teams remain, and despite the difficulties of the race, the alliance between Kat & Ana and Dixie & Tiny remains strong, and Koopa & Paratroopa have yet to make enemies. Booster & Snifit, who arrived first at 3:12 PM… will depart… at 3:12 AM.

Snifit: Wow! Isn’t this a treat, eh, Booster? We’re leaving first! The other teams are gonna be starin’ at our behinds!

Booster: Noo!! Mah Beeeee-hind has too many beeees!!

Snifit: Ignoring that.


Snifit: Fly to Toad Town and find the marked pipe to take you… to Earth!

Phil: Teams must now fly over 6,000 miles to Toad Town, the largest city in the Mushroom Kingdom. There, they will find a special pipe that connects this realm with Earth, where Mario and Luigi grew up. Teams must enter this pipe and when they arrive at the mystery destination, they will receive their next clue.

Snifit: What an interesting leg… I thought this race was about the Mushroom World… Maybe there’s something special where we’re going.

Booster: You’s makin’s blaaaaass!!!

Snifit: You’re right. Let’s go!


Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas - 3:30 AM
Kat: Early morning sun rises… And we are off…

Ana: Ha! It’s pitch black. There’s no sun!


Kat: Oh, snap… Earth…

Ana: Hm… What could we be doing there?

Kat: All I know is Mario, Luigi, and Donkey Kong grew up there.

Ana: Hmmm…

***Kat: Well, it’s certain to be a spectacular leg… It’s down to four teams, and everyone’s wildly fighting for first place.

***Ana: We can’t let our guard down.

Ana: I hope the girls can catch up.

Kat: Hmm…

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master

Snifit: Yeah, Booster. Come on. Let’s get going.

***Snifit: Being in first place is almost too hard to believe. We really lucked out with that Fast Forward.

***Booster: What about deh rewind?! Dat was important 2!

Snifit: Hi! Do you have any flights to Toad Town?

Aqua: Certainly! We have a non-stop flight leaving at 4:00 AM, and that will be your best option.

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners - 3:45 AM
Paratroopa: Wheee! We get to go to Earth!

Koopa: Yeah! I went there once.

Paratroopa: Really?

Koopa: Yeah, when Bowser kidnapped Mario.

Paratroopa: Oh, yeah…

***Koopa: Things are beginning to wind down. We’re preparing our victory speech.

Paratroopa: We’d better hurry! We don’t want to miss any flights that might get us ahead!

Koopa: Step on it!


Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: Hi! We need to get to Toad Town.

Marine: Non-stop to Toad Town departs at 4:00 AM. Would you like tickets?

Ana: Yes, please! That would be great!

Kat: Well, looks like it’s us, Booster, and possibly the Koopas.

Ana: Looks like Dixie & Tiny won’t make it…

Kat: …

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Paratroopa: Oh, I hope we can get there! Maybe get on the same flight as some of the others!

Koopa: We just have to go fast… fast… fast… Come on…

Paratroopa: Don’t worry, we’re almost there.

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
Snifit: Come on, Booster, plane time.

Booster: *BAM* READY!!!!

Snifit: Please don’t do that again.

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: Let’s embark.

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Paratroopa: There’s the airport! Come on!

Koopa: Let’s run!

They enter.

Koopa: Hey! When’s your soonest flight to Toad Town?

Aqua: The non-stop flight is boarding right now. It’s the fastest way.

Paratroopa: Woah! Can we get tickets?!

Aqua: I can issue tickets, but you might not make it. You’ll have to run.

Paratroopa: I’m a Para! I can handle speed! Go!!!

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
Snifit: …

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Both: …

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Paratroopa: Hold the plane!!!

Koopa: We’re coming!

The plane’s engines are warming up.

Paratroopa: We have to go faster! Here!

Koopa: Woah!

Paratroopa picks up Koopa by the arms and flies at top speed down the embarking hallway.

Paratroopa: We’re…gonna…make it!!!

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Ana: … …

Kat: Oh, look. They made it.

Ana: Oh!

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Both are panting.

Koopa: Well… that was wild.

Paratroopa: Hey!

Kat: Hey.

Ana: We’re all on our way, eh?

Koopa: Well… most of us…

All 6: …

The plane takes off into the sunrise…

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters - 4:05 AM

Dixie: Sounds like a tough leg!

Tiny: Come on, girl! We’d better hurry it up!

***Dixie: This is the first time we’ve been in last place. It doesn’t feel very great… We have a long leg ahead of us, so hopefully we’ll be able to pull ahead…

Dixie: Let’s get to the airport! Now!

Yoshishi: Yeah! We have a flight at 4:30 to Grass Land, and you’ll get on a connecting flight.

Dixie: Everyone’s gone…

Tiny: I’d assume they already got flights.

Dixie: Ughh…Well… hopefully we’ll catch up…

The flight takes off. The world map is shown with two yellow lines.

Phil: All teams are now travelling to-

One line stops in the center of a continent, then continues.

Phil: -Toad Town. All except Dixie & Tiny are on a direct flight and are just now arriving.

7:01 AM
The plane lands.

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Ana: This is it! How awesome!

Kat: Come on! This isn’t our ultimate destination.

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Paratroopa: Whee-heee! Finally! Where’s that pipe?

Koopa: I’d assume… well, I dunno. Let’s go ask someone.

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
Snifit: Come on, Booster! Smell the pipe for me!


Snifit: Mhm…

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Ana: Excuse me! Where’s the pipe to the Real World?

Toadaka: I believe it’s behind Peach’s Castle, isn’t it?

Kat: Let’s go try that.

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
Snifit: Waaaaahh! Comin’ through!

Snifit’s hanging onto Booster, who’s running really quick.

Booster: I smells pipe for dinner!!!

Kat & Ana: …

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Koopa: Follow that odd man!

Paratroopa: Waaaahhh!

Eventually they all reach a grey pipe behind the castle.

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: Well, this is it, gang. We can enter as soon as Booster stops gnawing on it.

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
Booster: PAAYYYPPPP!!!

Snifit: *sigh* Standard take away trains and planes rant.

Booster: I’s sawwy…

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Paratroopa: Well, who knows what we’ll find on the other side?

Kat: All I know is that our clue is on the other side. Let’s get going!

Ana: Here we go!

*Bloop bloop bloop*

The camera zooms in on a street.

It zooms in on a pipe in an alley, next to a clue box.

*Bloop bloop bloop*

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: All right!

Ana: Where are we?

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Paratroopa: Woah!!!

Koopa: This is Earth, eh? Look at all the humans!

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
Snifit: Clue! Here!

*Riiiiiip* *Riiiiiiiiip* *Riiiiiiiip*

Snifit: Uhh…

Kat: This has got to be the simplest clue ever!

Paratroopa: “Look up.”

All 6: … … … … …*look up*

Phil: This… is the Brooklyn Tower! A building that was once under construction, production was halted and it was turned into a heritage site. The reason? This was where Mario first battled Donkey Kong back when they were rivals… in an effort to save his girlfriend Pauline. Teams must reach the 25m mark to receive their next clue.

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: Woah! Look at that!

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Koopa: It’s the tower! The one DK was always talkin’ about!

Paratroopa: Wow! That’s pretty famous!

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
Snifit: That’s what eventually drove Mario to come to the Mushroom Kingdom!

Ana: Look! I see a flag up there! Like a quarter of the way up! Come on! Let’s go!

They all dash off, reaching the bottom of the tower.

Foreman: Welcome, everyone! Please put on your hardhats, and good luck!

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: This is gonna be fun!

Ana: I’m not so sure! Look!

She points up to the flag’s location.

DK: Hahahaaa!!! Watch out for my barrels!!!

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Paratroopa: Oh, snap!

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
Snifit: Come on, Booster! Let’s go!

Booster: Ooh! Super Pellets! *bites repeatedly like Pac-Man* Wakawakawakawaka!!

Snifit: Uhh… Booster? Be careful…

Booster: Gawwk!

Booster has a huge barrel in his mouth.

Booster: Guuh hwaahhnnk! Taannkkyynnnaaakkk!!

Snifit: Aww, boo! Spit that out!!! Why do you always have to be like this?!

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: Come on! Let’s climb the ladder!

Ana: This is gonna be a wild leg!

Kat: Would you expect anything else?

Ana: Good thing no one’s afraid of heights!

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Paratroopa: S’cuse us!

Koopa: Comin’ through!

Paratroopa: Haha!!! This is my kind of destination!

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: Come on! Follow me!

Ana: No! That ladder’s broken! Come this way!

Kat: Watch out!

A barrel falls… BOOM!

DK: Hahahaaa!!!

Ana: Shut up!

DK: No!!!

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
Snifit: Booster! Go! Jump!

Booster: *Boing* *Crash*

Snifit: Not ON the barrel!

Booster: Be speysyfyc!!

Snifit: Ughhh…

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Paratroopa: Waahhh! Hey, watch it! You’re gonna knock us out!

Koopa: There’s too many barrels… We can’t make any headway…

Paratroopa: Hey! What’s that over there? Under that girder?

Koopa: Where? Oh… Looks like hammers.

Paratroopa: What? Hammer? What?! Grab one!

Koopa: Why?

Paratroopa: Just do it!

They both pick one up… and you all know what happens next.

Koopa: WaAaAaAaAaAaAaAAAHHH!! WhaAaAat’s goOoOoOing OoOoOn?!

Paratroopa: Wahaaaaaa!!! Wheeee!!!

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: Oh! Look! They’ve got hammers!

Ana: We should get some! This’ll be so much easier!

Kat: There! They’re over there by Booster!

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
Snifit: Here, Booster! Have a hammer!

Booster: ‘Kay!

He puts it in his mouth and swings it like Wario swings the bat in Brawl.

Bootser: RrrRRrrRRRRrrRRRrrrrRRRRrRRR!!!

Snifit: Gah! Hey! That’s not really safe! We’re gonna have to take you to a dentist or somethin- ah, whatever! *grabs one* Yahaaa!!!

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Paratroopa: Wheeeeeeeeeee! This is awesome! *SMASH* We’re rockin’!

DK: Oh no!!! My secret weakness!!!

Paratroopa: .__.

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: Ha! Just like a Katana! *grabs* Waaahahahaaaaa! Or noOoOoOot!!! Waaaaaahhh!

Ana: Haha! We’re rockin’ now!

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Koopa: Yahh… well… that’s finally over.

Paratroopa: Yeah! We made it to the top! Now let’s save Pauline!

Koopa: Sure.


Koopa: Detour!

Phil: A Detour is a choice between two tasks, each with its own pros and cons! This task will pit teams against something familiar or something new: Down or Up. In Down, teams will take an elevator back down to the ground floor and complete the first 25m again. However, this time they will be prohibited from using the hammers. Once they reach DK, they will receive their next clue. In Up, teams must complete the next 25m of the building, finding their clue exactly halfway up at 50m. However, this part of the building is where the cement was manufactured, and it’s a complicated area to traverse.

Paratroopa: Hmmmm…

Koopa: I don’t want to do that part without hammers! That’s too rough.

Paratroopa: You’re right. Let’s do up.

Koopa: Caution - Yield ahead…

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: Come on, Ana! We’d better hurry it up!

Ana: Almost there!

The plane lands.

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
***Dixie: Well, we managed to make up some time by finding a quicker connecting flight.

***Tiny: So we weren’t totally out of it.

Dixie: There’s the pipe, right?

Tiny: That looks like the one! You ready, girl?

Dixie: Let’s do it!

*Bloop bloop bloop*

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: This is it!

Ana: Good job!


Kat: Detour…

Ana: Hmm… Do you really want to do all of that again?

Kat: Not really. Let’s do Up.

Ana: All right!

Kat: Yield ahead…

*Bloop bloop bloop*

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: Wow! Earth! I’ve always wanted to go here! This is where DK lived for a while!

Tiny: And Mario and Luigi.

Dixie: Mhm…


Tiny: Look! There’s the big tower! Woah! Look!

Dixie: Huh?

Tiny: Everyone’s there! Looks like they’re all having various difficulties!

Dixie: Come on! This is our chance to catch up! Let’s get started!

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: The girls are here!

Ana: Oh, good! They caught up!

Kat: …

Ana: Whassamatter?

Kat: I’m just thinking of us. There’s only four teams left… you know?

Ana: Hmm…

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Koopa: Okay! What’s going on here- Woah!

Paratroopa: Jeez! Who builds the cement factory halfway up the building?

Koopa: I think the contractor was drunk…

Paratroopa: What do we have to do here?

Koopa: Oh, man… We gotta avoid all this running muck… and look! Trouble Bugs!

Paratroopa: Uhh… That’s a fireball…

Koopa: No, no… It’s a Trouble Bug.

Paratroopa: That’s the oddest bug I’ve ever seen… Are you sure that’s what it’s called?

Koopa: Mhm…

Paratroopa: All right then… Come on!

Koopa: Wahaaa!!!

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
Snifit: HURRY UP!

Booster: No!!! I’m’s eat the laddarz!

Snifit: Go ahead, they’re broken anyway. Now COME!!!


Snifit: Now!!!

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: Let’s get started.

Ana: Ughh… This factory is definitely not energy efficient.

Kat: Yes… There’s less of a sense of nature here.

Ana: Come on! This ladder is where we need to be… I think.

Kat: This could be challenging…

Ana: So’s everything! Let’s keep going!

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: All right, Sis! Are we on our way?

Tiny: Oh, you betcha! We are rockin’ it!

Dixie: *jumps* Ugh… Just a little further and we get to use some hammers!

Tiny: Yeaaahhhh!!!

Dixie: We’re better at this than we thought.

Tiny: Woooooo!!!

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
Snifit: This is ridiculous! The girls are catching up to us now! Ughhhh!!!

Booster: Uggggghhhhhh yourself!!!

Snifit: No! We are going to get to that flag if it kills us! Now, come on!

Snifit grabs Booster by the seat of his pants and drags him.

Booster: WaaAAaaAAaaAAaaAAaaAAAHHH!!!

Snifit: … …

Booster: But, we needs hammars to get thru!!

Snifit: Okay.

Snifit begins to swing Booster around like a hammer.

Snifit: Yah! Yah!! Yahhh!!!


Snifit: Shut up!

***Snifit: Umm… I guess… I got… competitive…

***Booster: No cheezburgers!! You was crazier dan me! And I’m Batman!!

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Both: …

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Both: …

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Both: …

Koopa: Watch out!

Paratroopa: Waaaaahhh!

Cement splashes down. Some of it gets on the tips of his wings.

Paratroopa: Uhhhhh… Ewwwww… Uggghhh… Aaauuucckkk… Bleahh! My poor babies!

Koopa: Watch it!!!

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
Snifit: Detour.

Booster: Uhhhuhhhhuhhhhhh…

Snifit: Which one?

Booster: The one that makes the world stop spinning…

Snifit: Okay. We’ll do Down.

Booster: Which one’s that?

Snifit: The one where we do what we just did… but without hammers.

Booster: Oh no!!!!

Snifit: Come on, bud! There’s a Yield ahead! We need that!!!

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: Yeah! Hammer time!

Tiny: Thank you, MC Hammer.

Dixie: Heh… Pick it up and… WAAAHHH!

Tiny: Haha! They’re wild all right!

She picks one up.

Tiny: Yeah! Bring it on, DK!

Dixie: Woohoooo!

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: Watch out, Ana!

Ana: Waahhh!!! Is this safe?!

Kat: I think DK screwed it up somehow…

Ana: How did Mario manage this?!

Kat: Just like we will… We can do it.

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
Booster: Come on, Snifut, pleez? I no wan dizzy.

Snifit: No, Booster. We’re going to get ahead. Sometimes sacrifices have to be made. This time, you’ll be the one making the sacrifice.


Snifit: …

***Booster: Yeah, so I’m’s gunna go sleep over here…in this room… on a different floor… in a different building…

***Snifit: I’m sorry!!!

Snifit: (swinging him again) All right!! Woo!!!

Booster: WaaaAAaaAAaaAAaaAAaaaAAAAHH!!!


Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: Come on, Tiny. Let’s get the *bleep* out of here! They’re messed up!


Tiny: Detour…

Dixie: Hmm…Let’s do Up, because what we just did was pretty tough…

Tiny: Okay. Sounds good. Come on, girl!

Dixie: Yeah!

Tiny: Oh! There’s a Yield!

Dixie: Yikes! We’d better get moving!

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Koopa: Are we almost there?!

Paratroopa: We’re getting there!

Koopa: Ugghhh…

Paratroopa: This part looks hard… There’s conveyor belts… cement makers… What a challenge.

Koopa: Hey… what was this building supposed to be?

Paratroopa: Uhhhhhh… I thought it was a skyscraper.

Koopa: Maybe, but why is there a *bleep*in’ cement factory in the middle? And what’s with the third quarter?

Paratroopa: Who knows…

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: Hey! You got room for two more party guests?

Koopa: Hey Katana.

Kat: This requires precision…

Koopa: It’s tough!

Paratroopa: It’s easier for me! I just have to watch for the fallin’ stuff.

Koopa: You be careful, though! One wrong move and you’ll be grounded.

Paratroopa: Ugh, I know…

Ana: Kat?

Kat: Let’s go.

Ana: Kat, this looks troublesome…

Kat: Come on.

***Ana: Something was off… I could sense it.

Ana: …

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
Booster: WAAaaAAaaAAaaAAaaAAaaAAaaAAaaAAaaAAaaAAaaAAaaAAaaAAaaAAaaAAaa

Snifit: Shaddup!

Booster cries.

Snifit: We’re almost there!

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: Aw, yeah! We’re catching up!

Tiny: We’d better be careful. We don’t wanna screw up.

Dixie: Just avoid the cement and we’ll be juuuuuuust fine!

Tiny: I hope so.

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners

Koopa: PARA! MOVE!

Paratroopa: Waaaaaaaaaaaaaahh!!!

Koopa: Ughh… You’re gonna lose your wings, dude!

Paratroopa: Gimme the cloak.

Koopa takes out a cloak and Paratroopa puts it on.

Paratroopa: Uggh… Have I mentioned before how much I hate having my wings pressed down?

Koopa: Better than losin’ ‘em!

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
Booster: AaAaArEeEe weEeEeE dOoOonEeE yEeEeEt?

Snifit: Nope!


***Booster: Can I has bodyguardz nao?

Snifit: We… will not be eliminated!

Booster whimpers.

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: Augh! I got it all over myself! Ughh…

Tiny: Aw, shoot! We gotta get that off or you’re gonna be a Kongscicle!

Dixie: Ughh…Naaaaasty…

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Koopa: Look! The finish!

Paratroopa: We’re almost to the clue box!

Koopa: They’re there…

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: Good job, Sis!

Ana: Yeah!

Kat: Oh, god! Look at this!

Ana: Yield!

Phil: This… is the second of only three Yields on the entire race. Teams can use it to stop another team from racing. Any team that’s been forced to Yield must turn this hourglass over and wait for the sand to run out before they continue racing. However, teams can only use their Yield power once during the race, so they must decide when it’s most advantageous to go for it.

Kat: As before, we choose not to Yield.

Ana: We’re better than that.


Kat: Roadblock…

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. *he’s standing on a girder* And this Roadblock is very simple: All teams have to do is keep going. The chosen team member must reach the 75m mark of the building. However, this is no easy task. This area is infamous for the difficulty Mario had traversing it. Once they join their team member at 75m, they will receive their next clue.

Kat: “Who’s been doing well today?”

Ana: I’ll do it.

Kat: Yes. It’s your turn. I only have one left anyway… Good luck!

***Ana: I wasn’t exactly looking forward to the Roadblock, but I had only done three, so I had to do some eventually… and I had confidence in myself.

Kat: Okay! I’ll meet you up there!

Ana: All right!

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Paratroopa: Don’t forget us!

Koopa: Yeah!

Paratroopa: Wanna Yield?

Koopa: Nah!


Koopa: Roadblock…

Paratroopa: I’ll do it.

Koopa: Okay. Good luck then.

Paratroopa: I’m gonna take the cloak off now… let them air out…

Koopa: Coo’. See ya up there!

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Ana: Okay! Let’s see… Ladder… okay.

Paratroopa: Hi Ana!

Ana: Konichiwa!

Paratropoa: Let’s tackle this thing, shall we?

Ana: Yeah.

Paratroopa: Oh, watch out. There’s a Trouble Bug over there…

Ana: Wait, what?

Paratroopa: That fireball thing… It’s a Trouble Bug.

Ana: …

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
Booster: My head and hands and neck and arms and torso and legs and feet and head hurt!!!

Snifit: We made it, though! We’ve completed the Detour! Now, I think we ride an elevator up to 50m…


Snifit: … Huh? I’m not gonna be swingin’ you anymore…

Booster: But you said “Elevator”!!

Snifit: … AND?!


Snifit: Stop crying and get moving!!!

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: Almost done, girl!

Tiny: Watch for this falling gloop!

Dixie: Ugh… Not the prettiest leg.

Tiny: Hey, look! We’re drawing a crowd!

Dixie: Haha! Look at all the Earthlings!

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Paratroopa: Why are they all staring at me?

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Ana: ‘Cus you’re unique. Let’s go!

Paratroopa: …

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master

Snifit: Yeah! Look! There’s the Yield!

Booster: Deh Whayt??

Snifit: Come on! Looks like we’re gonna be able to!

Booster: What? The Stop Sign?

Snifit: Yield!!! *steps on the mat* We choose to Yield Dixie & Tiny…

Booster: Aww, how nice! We’re give’n dem a presant!

Snifit: Yeah, sure… whatever. This is a reeeaaal nice present.

He pastes up their picture along with the “Courtesy of” picture.

Snifit: We’re golden!

Booster: I’m bronze!


Snifit: Roadblock… Aw, man. Then we can’t use our special hammer technique…

Booster: Eek! Fanks for reminding me!!

Snifit: You can do it, Booster! Trust me! I hid a silver toy train up at the top!


Snifit: *sigh* Sometimes it’s just toooo easy…

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Ana: Awww! Did you hear that!

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Paratroopa: Sneaky Booster & Snifit…

Ana: Now the girls are Yielded…

Paratroopa: That could be trouble for them…

Ana: Ughh…

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
Booster: Train! Train! Train!

He climbs a ladder.

Booster: Train! Oof! Train! Oof! Train! Oof! Train! Oof! Train! Oof! Train! Oof!

He’s climbing into a Trouble Bug and getting knocked down repeatedly.

Booster: Train! Oof!

Snifit shakes his head in shame.

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: Hey yeaaahhh!!! We are catching up so bad, my girl!

Tiny: At this rate we’ll surely make third! Maybe second!

Dixie: As long as we stay in the race! Mhm!

Tiny: All right! We did it!

Dixie: Good job! I’m a little goopy, but it’s all right!

Tiny: Haha! You look like a hard-at-work construction worker.

Dixie: Yield!

*Abrupt musical end*

Tiny stares with jaw agape.

Dixie: Aw, no way!!!

Tiny: Those idiots Yielded us!

Dixie: Why would they Yield us?

Tiny: Obviously they’re scared of losing.

Dixie: Dang it!

They flip the hourglass.

Dixie: What a terrible place for a Yield…

Tiny: We’re gonna be here for a while…

***Dixie: Once we saw that we were Yielded, we knew it was pretty much all over. Our only hope was a non-elimination leg.

***Tiny: We were hopin’…

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Ana: Okay, so now what?

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Paratroopa: Looks like we just climb these girders to reach that big one on top.

*falling sound effect, hereafter known as Neeeeooowwwww*

Paratroopa: GAHH! What the hey was that?!

Ana: That almost hit you! What?


Ana: Look out!

Both dive out of the way.

Ana: Whaa?!

Paratroopa: Look up!

Ana: Huh?

Paratroopa: Springs! Someone’s throwing them at us!

Ana: Ack! That’s not nice!!! We’re gonna get hit!

Paratroopa: Looks like we’re just gonna have to be careful.

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
Booster: Train! Oof! Train! Oof!

Snifit: BOOSTER! FOR CRYING OUT LOUD! The train’s gonna disappear if you don’t hurry up!

Booster: Waah! Okay! Okay!! OMMMM

He eats the Trouble Bug.

Booster: MNNHHMHMHNFFMMMM!!! *gulp* Ugghhh…

Steam escapes his mouth and nose.

Booster: I dun like hot tamales.

Snifit: * to Kat & Koopa* Anyone wanna trade?

Both: …

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Ana: Come on! We can make it up!

Paratroopa: Yeah… I gotta climb the ladders. My wings aren’t dried out yet.

Ana: High maintenance, eh?

Paratroopa: Yeah. *takes one and strokes it* But I love’em…

Ana: …

Paratroopa: C’mon!

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: This is agonizing!

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas

Ana: Geez! I felt the wind from that one!

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Paratroopa: C’mon, Ana! We’re almost to the top! We’re gonna make it!



Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
Booster dashes up the ladder and smacks into the other two, causing a bowling strike sound effect.

Booster: Waaaaaaahhh! Hi!

Ana: Augh! What are you doing?

Paratroopa: Owwww!!! Watch where you’re going!

Booster: You’s miss’s me?

Ana: No! In fact, why don’t you shove off? You Yielded our best friends!

Paratroopa: Yeah!

Booster: I dyd nots use teh Stop Sign!!

Ana: Huh?

Booster: I mean the Red Light. I mean the Traffic Cone. I mean the Yield.

Ana and Paratroopa: …

Booster: …

Ana: The… yellow thing! Down there! You Yielded Dixie & Tiny.

Booster: Oh yah!! Dat ting!

Ana: Why’d you do it?

Booster: Uhhh… I’unno…

All 3: …

???: HEY!!!


Kat: Come on, Ana! We don’t have time for this!

Snifit: Go, go, go!!!

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Ana: We’d better get moving, you guys…

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Paratroopa: Look! It’s DK. He’s throwing the springs!

Ana: They’re bouncing all over the place! We gotta get past ‘em!

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
Booster: Wheeee!!!

He runs down the girder. *BLAMF*

Booster: Oww…dat didn’t work. Huh… let’s try the exact same thing again. Wheee!!!


Booster: Owwww…

Ana: Ugh… Come on!

Paratroopa: We’re gonna rock this!

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: Isn’t it over yet?

Tiny: It’s… maybe a third left?

Dixie: I… am steaming…

Tiny: Oh, you and me both, girl…

Both: …

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Ana: Ha! Yeah! Come on!

She’s dodging all the springs with crazy ninja moves.

Ana: Nope! Missed me! Is that… your best? Terrible! Ugh! Awful Learn… to aim!

Kat: Come on, Ana! Just tag me and we can get the clue!

Ana: I’ll be there momentarily! Just lemme climb this ladder.

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Paratroopa: *SMACK* Gah! How in the world do you do that?

Koopa: Keep going, Para! Almost there!

Paratroopa: Ugh, enough of this! *flutters wings to fluff them out* They’ve dried enough.

Paratroopa flies up to Koopa, narrowly missing a spring-

Paratroopa: Gah!

*-and reaches his partner at the same time as Ana.

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: All right. Great job, Ana!

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Paratroopa: Next clue?

Koopa: We got it!


Kat: Yeah!

Phil: Teams must now continue to ascend this crazy tower to reach its summit, 100m up. This topmost girder, where Pauline was held captive by Donkey Kong many years ago, is the Pit Stop for this leg of the race. The last team to check in here… may be eliminated.

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: Let’s jet!

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
Snifit: Aw, man! Booster! Come on! Hurry up!

Booster: Okay!!! WAAUGHAHNNAAA!!!

He runs through the springs swinging his arms and knocking them all away.

DK: What da?

Booster: Yeahaaaa!!

Booster zips up the ladder.

Booster: Hai!

Snifit: Oh… Hi!

Booster: Yay! You said ohai!

Snifit: That’s great! Let’s go!


Snifit: Pit Stop!

The final grain of sand falls.
Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: Done. Come on. We’d better jet.

Tiny: We are gonna be last…


Dixie: Yeah, but if it’s non-elim, we’d better get there soon. It’s a roadblock. I’m gonna do it, okay?

Tiny: All right. Good luck, girl.

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: The sisters’ Yield is over.

Ana: Just now? Ugh, they’re surely gonna be last…

Kat: Shinjirarenakya! (We have to believe!) They will be just fine…

Ana: I guess… Hey, Kat?

Kat: Nandai? (What?)


Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Koopa: I keep tellin’ yous they’re called Trouble Bugs!

Ana: That’s a weird name

Kat: Whatever. In any case, they’re all over the place, and they’re impeding our path to the Pit Stop.

Ana: Let’s hustle then!

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
Snifit: Yeah, Booster, yeah! Catch them!

Booster: I wants mah trayn! Now!

Snifit: I told you! It’s at the top!

Booster: Ooooohhhhhhhhhhhhh…

Snifit: Come on! We can catch them!

Booster: Yah!

***Kat: The final rush to the Pit Stop was pretty wild.

***Ana: There were fireballs and ladders, and the layout was very confusing.

***Kat: Not to mention that we were all back to back to back.

***Ana: It was, uh, cutthroat…

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: Oh, yeah! I’m awesome

Tiny: Great job, Dix! You’re rockin’ it!

Dixie: Just… gotta cross these elevators!

Tiny: We’ll make it!

Dixie: Yeah!!! I’ll be there soon!!!

***Dixie: It’s good… good to keep your spirits high.

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: Ana!

Ana: What?

Kat: This way?

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Koopa: I think it’s this ladder!

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: Wait, no… This ladder’s broken!

Ana: Follow the Koopas!!!

Kat: They found it…

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Paratroopa: All right!!!

Koopa: We did it!

Paratroopa: Woooo!!! We’re on top of the world, bud! WOOOOO!!!

Pauline: Thank you, Koopa & Paratroopa!! You’ve rescued me!

Phil: And you’re team number one!!!

Paratroopa: All right!!!

Koopa: Simply awesome! Awesome, awesome!

Paratroopa:  :)

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: Yeah, here it is.

Pauline: Thank you, Kat & Ana! You’ve rescued me!

Phil: And you’re team number 2!

Kat: Great

Ana: That’s cool

Kat: We’re close enough to the front, so it’s okay.

Phil: Now, Koopa & Paratroopa, I have some good news. As the winners of this leg of the race, you have each won an all-expenses paid vacation to one of Earth’s greatest vacation spots: The Bahamas.

Koopa: Ooh! Where’s that?

Paratroopa: I’unno…

Phil: You’ll be staying at the Four Seasons Great Exuma resort, and you will be snorkelling, wind-surfing, and relaxing in five-star splendour. And you can enjoy that after the race.

Koopa: Awesome!

Paratroopa: We get to come back here!

Koopa: Yeah!

Phil: And Kat & Ana, sorry, but maybe you can win a prize next time.

Ana: It’s okay! We’re still in the race.

Kat: And that’s all that matters.

Phil: How’s your alliance standing?

Kat: Uh, no comment…

Koopa: …

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
Booster: YAAAHHH!

Snifit: Heya!

Pauline: Thank you, Booster & Snifit! You’ve rescued me!

Phil: And you’re team number 3!

Snifit: Great!!! Awesome!!! Glad to still be in the running!

Phil: I heard a rumor that you used your Yield.

Snifit: Yeah, but we felt we had to in order to survive… It was a tough decision…

Kat: You know, you really shouldn’t have done that.

Ana: You only made three enemies.

Snifit: Well, it was either that, or be eliminated.

Kat: It doesn’t matter. It was dishonorable.

Ana: You should be depending on your own strengths.

Snifit: Hey, hey! It’s a part of the game, and we utilized it.

Ana: No-

Snifit: If you were in our position, you would’ve used it too!

Koopa: You can’t claim-

Paratroopa: The Yield-

Snifit: Don’t scold me!

Various yelling continues…

Ana: I don’t care! Dixie & Tiny are my friends! Any enemy of them is an enemy of mine!

Snifit: Wait! Wait!

Kat: Now they’re gonna be either eliminated or marked for elimination

Snifit: You know what. Shut up!

Kat: Don’t tell me to shut up!

Phil: Guys, guys. Kat? Do you think this… sets the tone? Is the race going to flow differently now?

Kat: As ninjas we have to follow a strict code of honor. We promised ourselves we wouldn’t use the Yield, but seeing someone else use it just… infuriates us…

Snifit: But-

Kat: Silence. You are no longer permitted to speak to us.

Snifit: …

Booster: AM I STILL HERE?!?!?!

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Tiny: Good job, girl!

Dixie: I… I made it…

Tiny: Thanks for all the lousy springs, DK!

DK: Hee hee heee

Tiny: Ughh…


Dixie: Pit Stop…

Tiny: We’d better go…


Dixie: Ughh…

Tiny: I never want to climb again.

Dixie: We just climbed 100m, girl! That… was pretty awesome

Tiny: Yeah… whatever…

Pauline: Thank you, Dixie & Tiny! You’ve saved me!

Phil: But… you’re the last team to arrive.

Dixie: Yeah…

Tiny: Not much we could do about it…

Phil: …

Both: …

Phil: But, uh… I think you’ll be racing one more day!

Dixie: *exhales* Yeeesssss!

Tiny: Yeaaaaahhhh!!! Yes! We’re still in!

Phil: This is a non-elimination leg and you are both still in the race…

Dixie: Woohoo!

Phil: However… on the next leg of the race, you will be Marked for Elimination. If you do not arrive at the Pit Stop in first place, you will incur a thirty-minute penalty. During this time, other teams could check in, and ultimately you could be eliminated.

Both nod.

Phil: So… have you made some new enemies?

Dixie: Well, like I say, the Yield was completely unnecessary. We were already behind them anyway, so…

Tiny: It wasn’t the smartest move. Now they’re on the short list to be eliminated…

Dixie: They’re on our list.

***Dixie: It’s kinda surreal, what with us being on top for most of the race, and now we’re Marked for Elimination.

***Tiny: We’ve come through so much, all those challenges, saving ourselves from last place with the use of the Fast Forward…

***Dixie: We’re only gonna fight harder

***Tiny: Harder. Faster. Stronger.

***Dixie: We can’t be defeated.

The credits roll.
