The Amazing Race MK II

By Giga Bowser NS

Episode 13
Title: Pfft… psysics

Phil: Previously on, The Amazing Race MK: Teams departed from Earth, and raced to Fahr Outpost, where they received a shocking surprise.

Paratroopa: WHAT?!

Phil: They were headed for outer space. Once on the moon, they found a Detour that was simply… out of this world. Teams then made their way to the abandoned X-Naut Fortress, where they all ended up getting lost. Dixie & Tiny arrived second, but had been Marked for Elimination and had to wait on the side of the mat. It was tense until the end, but they ended up surviving. Now… four teams remain… Who will be eliminated… next?

The opening plays with no new Red “X”s

*Shots of the moon’s surface, followed by one shot from Pilt*

Phil: This is the moon! And on the surface of the moon, hidden away from the rest of the world, is the abandoned X-Naut Fortress. Nearby this behemoth was the eleventh Pit Stop… in a race around the MK. Teams arrived here for a mandatory 12-hour rest period. Will Booster & Snifit once again be able to overcome the challenge of being Marked for Elimination? Or, will they falter? Kat & Ana, who were the first to arrive at 2:59 PM, Planet Time, will depart… at 2:59 AM.


Kat: Alll righttt…

Ana: I’m so excited!

Kat: Make your way to the Comet Observatory…

Phil: Teams must now head over to the Dark Side of the Moon, where they will find a Launch Star. They must use this Launch Star to hurl themselves to the comet Observatory. Once there, they will find their next clue.

Kat: The Comet Observatory!

Ana: What’s that?

Kat: It’s like this huge flying space-ship type thing. Mario went there once, don’t you remember?

Ana: Oh! That thing! D’ya think we’ll be going to one of the galaxies?

Kat: That seems definitely possible!

***Kat: Our spirits are quite high. We’re leaving in first place, and this is the final elimination. We’re not going to be out. The only question is, who will it be?

***Ana: We feel good about ourselves!

Ana: We have to walk all the way to the other side?! That’s gonna take ages!

They walk off…

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners – 3:36 AM

Paratroopa: Gonna be exciting!

Koopa: “Take the Launch Star… ”

Paratroopa: That is AWESOME!

Koopa: Gonna be fun!

Paratroopa: I can’t wait to flyyyy through space! So cooool!

***Koopa: Final leg?

***Paratroopa: Final leg! Yup!

***Koopa: No, wait, no it isn’t.

***Paratroopa: Yeah it is.

***Koopa: No, it’s the penultimate one!

***Paratroopa: What in the world does that mean?

***Koopa: It means second to last.

***Paratroopa: …

Koopa: Off we go!

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters – 3:52 AM

Dixie: “And launch yourself to the Comet Observatory.”

Tiny: What’s that?

Dixie: I have no idea, but it sounds cool!

Tiny: Let’s get rolling!

***Dixie: Oh, we’re golden now! We survived being Marked for Elimination, and now Booster & Snifit have a penalty. Dumb teams like the Koopa Kids can’t save them this time! They’re out for sure!

***Tiny: We’re going to the final leg! We don’t care if we win this leg, as long as we win the final one!

***Dixie: Yeah!

Dixie: Let’s get going! Hopefully we’ll all get to catch up at some point!

Tiny: Hopefully!

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master – 4:02 AM

Snifit: Oh boy! The Comet Observatory!

Booster: Snifut! I’m bored of this. Let’s quit.

Snifit: What?! No! We’re so close to the end! We’re gonna win!

Booster: No! I don’t wanna. I wanna be a cowboy now!

Snifit: Ugh. Did you forget the prize money?! You could buy so many planes and trains with that!

Booster: Okay. *zoom*


***Snifit: Yeah, we’re behind again, but that’s okay! We’ll be fine! We’ll be the winners!

***Booster: We’ll be oranges!

***Snifit: We won’t be that, but we’ll be victorious!

***Booster: My name’s Booster, not Victoria!

Snifit: Let’s go!!!

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

Ana: I can’t see a thing!

Kat: Up there! I can- it’s glowing a bit!

Ana: Oh yeah!

They both approach.

Ana: How do we do this?

Kat: Like this, I think…

She hops in and floats in the middle.

Kat: Then you-

She twists her arms. It winds up, then…

Kat: Waaahhoooo!

Ana: Gah! Wait for me!

She follows.

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Koopa: Woah! Who’s that?

*Camera shows four figures flying into the distance*

Paratroopa: Looks like they’re off!

Koopa: Looks like fun!

Paratroopa: Let’s go!

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas

They fly through space at top speed.

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: Haha! There they go!!!

Tiny: Woooo!!! Nice!!!

*Abrupt musical end*

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
They fly in and land smoothly just like Mario does after getting a Star.

Kat: Ooh! We’re here!

*Various shots of the Observatory as beautiful music plays*

Ana: Very nice!

They step forward.

Rosalina: Welcome to my Observatory! Here is your next clue!

She presents it/

Kat: Thank you!


Kat: Find the Beach Bowl Galaxy!

Phil: Teams must now search the Observatory’s various domes in search of the one that is connected to the Beach Bowl Galaxy, which is their next destination. Once they find it, they can take the Launch Star and go there, where they will find their next clue.

Ana: Beach Bowl…

Kat: We have to find it!

Ana: Oh boy…

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
They’re approaching the Observatory/

Paratroopa: Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!

Koopa: We are here!


Koopa: That was a blast! Hi!

Rosalina: Welcome!


Koopa: We get to go to the beach!

Paratroopa: Perfect!

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: The Koopas are here already!

Ana: Hmm…

Kat: This looks like some kind of fountain.

They enter.

Ana: Look through the roof.

Kat: These things are so neat!

*Shots of the galaxies with wondrous music*

Kat: Noo… Don’t see a Beach Bowl… Hmmm…

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Paratroopa: Not there…

Koopa: Kat & Ana are leaving that one, so we can rule it out.

Paratroopa: Let’s try up high!

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: Wheee!

Tiny: Fuunnnn!!!

Dixie: That was awesome.

Rosalina: Welcome!


Dixie: Beach Bowl…

Tiny: Doesn’t this place have a map?

Dixie: Probably, but I guess they took it down for the race.

Tiny: Come on. Let’s try over here.

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: This is a bedroom!

Ana: These domes are weird… See anything?

Kat: No… ughh… I can’t find it.

They exit the dome/

Kat: What about that?

Ana: Big tower of dishes…

Kat: It’s Dixie & Tiny!

Ana: Come on!

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: Here come the girls!

Tiny: Hi!

Ana: We’ve looked in a bunch. We can’t find it.

Kat: Let’s try this one.

They enter the Kitchen Dome.

Dixie: Ooh! Pretty!

Tiny: Look at all the stars…

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master

Snifit: Aaaaaaaand we’re here! Yeah!

Booster: (panting) I NO LYK!

Snifit: Calm down. It’s over. I liked it! It was fun!

Booster: NO!


Snifit: Let’s get going!

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: That’s it! I can see it!

Ana: Are you sure?

Kat: Yeah, there’s a huge red and yellow flag hanging off the edge!

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters

Dixie: Lemme see… Yup! That’s the Beach Bowl Galaxy!

Tiny: Why do they call ‘em galaxies? They’re solar systems…

Dixie: Whatever.

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: I’m gonna go.

She hops into the Launch Star.

Ana: We’re off!

*BLAM BLAM BLAM BLAM* They fly off into space…

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Paratroopa: Oh, snap! Didja see that?

Koopa: They came from that dome down there!

Paratroopa: Come on!

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
Snifit: I saw them!

Booster: Duh?

Snifit: They flew outta there!

Both teams head to the Kitchen Dome.

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Koopa: Hey! Outta my way! We’re first!

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
Snifit: Jeez! Don’t push!

Paratroopa: Oh boy! Another Launch Star!


Paratroopa: WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee…

Koopa: 9.9

The others fly off…

*Many shots of the main planet, including the penguins that are hopping through the water and enjoying the sunshine*

Penguins: *Penguin noises*

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
They fly in and land smoothly just like Mario does.

Kat: Okay!

Dixie & Tiny come too.

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: We’re here!

Tiny: This is our destination. Wow! It’s so beautiful!

Ana: Very peaceful! Very nice!

Kat: Clue box!

They all run to it. *Riiiiiip* *Riiiiiiiiiiip*

Dixie: Detour…

Phil: A Detour is a choice between two tasks, each with its own pros and cons. The Beach Bowl Galaxy, like many other galaxies in the area, is made up of many planets. The penguins all live on the largest one, known as the Beach Bowl. Now, teams will have to decide which other planet they will visit. In Waterfall, teams will grab a nearby Koopa Shell and use it to open this treasure chest. The Launch Star inside will lead them to the Waterfall Planet. There, they must utilize the power of Ice Flowers to wall jump up the waterfalls to receive their next clue. In Stonefall, teams will dive into the water to find this underwater cave. This Launch Star will take them to the Cyclone Stone. This odd planet, swarming with Thwomps and Tox Boxes, is where teams will find their next clue… if they survive.

Dixie: Launch to the waterfall planet… wall jump…

Tiny: I think that one.

Dixie: Yeah. I don’t like Thwomps. We can jump up.

Tiny: Sure! It’ll be easy!

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: It’s a Detour…

Ana: We wall jump all the time.

Kat: But will it be the same with an Ice Flower?

Ana: I believe so. Let’s do that one.

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: Over here?

Tiny: Wait, go get a shell.

Dixie: Okay.

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: Come on. I’ve got one.

Ana: This’ll be fun!

Kat: We have to find a treasure chest…

Ana: Let’s try over there.

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: Got it.

Tiny: Wow… This place is so beautiful! It’s so serene!

Dixie: Come on! Move it!

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

Ana: Didja find it?

Kat: Yeah, it’s hidden back here.

Ana: Throw the shell at it.

Kat: Ya! *SMASH*

Ana: Yay! Another Launch Star! These things are fun!

Kat: Come!

They launch themselves/

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: Oh! There it is! Over there!

Tiny: Come on!


Dixie: Okay! Let’s do this, and do it right!


Tiny: Wheeeee!!!

As they fly off, the camera shifts to the other side of the Beach Bowl, where four figures are landing.

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Koopa: All right!

Paratroopa: I don’t see anyone.

Koopa: Hopefully we’re not too far behind.

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
Snifit: Okay! There’s the clue!


Snifit: Uh, this is the Beach Bowl Galaxy!

Booster: GARAKSY? Oh mah gravy!

*Riiiiip* *Riiiiiiiiiiiip*

Booster: Tourde!

Paratroopa: Detour, Waterfall or Stonefall?

Koopa: Hmmm…

Snifit: We’re not gonna be able to avoid Thwomps with this *points to Booster* following us. Let’s do Waterfall, Booster!

Booster: But I can eats teh Thwomps!

Snifit: No. Come.

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Paratroopa: Hmm…

Koopa: Let’s do Stonefall! We’re fast!

Paratroopa: It’ll be easy for me!

Koopa: Yeah!

Paratroopa: Except we have to find the Launch Star in the water…

Koopa: Eh, don’t worry. We won’t be down there for long.

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
Snifit: Here. Hold this Koopa Shell and DON’T eat it. We gotta find a treasure chest.

Booster: OKAYYY!!!

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Koopa: Wheee! *Splash*

Paratroopa: *sigh* Okay…

He pulls his wings in close and dives into the water like a torpedo. Koopa waves and points to a cave with the Launch Star. Paratroopa nods, and they both swim towards it.

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
Snifit: There it is! Booster! Throw the shell at the chest!

Booster: PWAAH *spits it out*


Snifit: Umm… Yay. Come on!

They both launch/

Snifit: Wooo hooooo!!!

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
They also launch.


Paratroopa: Wooooooo!!!

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Ana: What do we do now?

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: This is definitely the waterfall planet! Look at those gorgeous waterfalls!

Kat: We have to get an Ice Flower…

Tiny: Over there!

*Camera shot of an Ice Flower*

Ana: There’s only one…

Kat: I think it re-spawns.

Dixie: Come on!

Snifit (distant): Wheeee!!!

Dixie: Oh, man. The other teams are really haulin’ it!

Kat: We’d better hurry!

Ana: Come on, Kat! Touch it with me!

Both touch the Flower, flash, then turn into ice versions of themselves.

Kat: Oh my…

Ana: This is so cool! Hahaha! I’m made of ice!

The flower reappears.

Dixie: That’s awesome.

They both touch it, flash, and turn into ice.

Dixie: Coooool!

Tiny: No kidding… ”Cool”…

Dixie: Oh, quiet.

Kat: Come on, girls. The waterfalls are over here. Watch and learn.

Ana: We don’t mean to brag, but we’re kind of experts at this!

Dixie: Heh heh heh…

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Koopa: Oof…

Paratroopa: More Launch Star! Yaaahahahahahaa!

Koopa: Woah!

On the Cyclone Stone, there’s always the white noise of smashing, splashing and crunching.

Koopa: It’s chaos!

Paratroopa: WHAT?!

Koopa: IT’S CHAOS!!!

Paratroopa: I CAN BARELY HEAR YOU!!!

Koopa: COME ON!!!

***Koopa: It was pandemonium on the Cyclone Stone.

***Paratroopa: Heh… I was optimistic!

***Koopa: Shut up! I had to do all the work!

Paratroopa: FOLLOW ME!


Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: Okay…

Ana: You go first!

Kat: Hup! Hup!

***Kat: The wall jumping was pretty easy. As soon as we touched the waterfall it froze… and it made, like, an ice platform. It made it easy.

Kat: Cool!

Ana: Very funny.

Kat: Come on up!

Ana: I’m coming!

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: Looks pretty simple, eh?

Tiny: We’ll be fine!

Dixie: Uh oh. We’ve got company!

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
Snifit: Okayy… Need to find an ice flower.

Booster: Here! *Farts*

Snifit: Ughh! No! Stop doing that! Ughh…

Booster: You said give you a nice flower!

Snifit: ICE Flower!!! ICE!!!

Booster: I need ice cream first!

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: *sigh* Come on.

She bounds up flawlessly.

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

Kat: Excellent.

Ana: Come on, Tiny!

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners


Koopa: GO AHEAD!

Paratroopa: RIGHT HERE! *hovers over a square* HIDE HERE!

***Koopa: Heh heh… Para was like my own little Navi.

***Paratroopa: SHUT UP!

Paratroopa: YOU’RE GOOD!


***Koopa: But, I gotta say, having those boxes slam down around me was really freaky.

Paratroopa: OKAY! GET GOING!

Koopa: WAAAHH!!!

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

Kat: This next one is higher.

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: No problem. Hup!

She begins to bound up.

Kat: Hey…

Ana: Eh, whatever. Look at dumb and dumber down there.

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
Snifit: Come on! The Flower is over there!

Booster: NOOO!!! I DUN’T WANT FLOWERR! I’m a MAN!!!

Snifit: Booster! Seriously! I’m sick of this garbage!


Snifit: Rrrrrrr…

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Tiny: Come on.

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
***Koopa: So, then there were moving blocks over this water thing.

***Paratroopa: The whole thing just defied physics.

***Koopa: Pfft… Physics. No such thing in the Mushroom Kingdom.





Paratroopa: *facepalm* *Flies above one* HEY! LISTEN!

***Paratroopa: If you ever call me Navi again, I will kill you in your sleep.


Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
Snifit: Just touch it.

Booster: U FRST!

Snifit: Okay!

He powers up.

Booster: WAHAHAHA! Ur a Popsicle!

Snifit: Heh. I guess I am.

Booster: What flavur?

He leans in and tries to lick Snifit.

Snifit: Ack! Hey! No! Back off.

Booster: Come onnnn!

Snifit: No!!!

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Ana: Good job! I’m coming.

Kat: Careful! Watch that rock.

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: This is it! We’re golden!

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Paratroopa: ONE MORE PART!


Paratroopa: YEAH! COME ON!


Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
Snifit: Come on. Do what I do.

He begins to hop up the waterfall.

Booster: WAOW! Ur magik!

Snifit: Yeah, but… uh, you are too! Try it!

Booster: Whaaaaaaaaaat?!

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

Ana: This is the top! Where’s the clue?

Kat: I don’t see a clue box… Oh! There’s a Launch Star!

Ana: I think we take it.

Kat: I have the feeling that’s correct. Come on.

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: Come on, girl! Let’s catch up to them!

Tiny: Hup! Hup!

Dixie: Keep goin’!

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Both get launched.

Ana: Wheee heee!!!

They land.

Kat: Ooh. I have to admit, that IS quite fun!

Ana: Haha. Where are we?

Kat: Looks like we’re back at the Beach Bowl, except we’re on top of the mountain.

Ana: Look! Look over there!

The camera zooms in on the clue box, and…

Phil: This… is the third and final Yield on the race. At this specific point, one team can force another team to Yield; that is, stop racing for a predetermined amount of time. Each team can only use their power to Yield once on the entire race, so they need to decide when it’s most advantageous to do it. Any team that’s been forced to Yield must turn this hourglass over and wait for the sand to run out before they continue on.

Kat: Perfect…

***Kat: Earlier in the race, we promised ourselves that we wouldn’t use the Yield. We didn’t want to hold others back. We believe in karma. However, when Booster & Snifit Yielded the girls...

*Replay of that scene*

***Kat: -they remained in the race. They received no bad karma whatsoever.

Kat: You ready?

Ana: Let’s do it!

***Kat: We felt that it was our duty to bring the bad karma to them.

Kat: As payment for your selfish use of the Yield earlier, we, Kat & Ana, choose to Yield Booster & Snifit.

Ana: Yeah! Haha!

They paste both pictures on the board.

Kat: You brought this upon yourselves.

Ana: Clue!


Kat: Roadblock…

Phil: In this Roadblock, one team member will learn first-hand that it’s not all fun and games on the Beach Bowl. The chosen team member must dive down to the bottom of the Beach Bowl and search the bottom for pieces to a puzzle. There are four pieces in total. Once they have retrieved all four, they will bring them to the surface and put them together. Then, using the diagram revealed by the completed puzzle, they must figure out that they have to throw a Koopa Shell at this tree to find the next clue.

Kat: Who can perform under pressure?

Ana: You think it means mental pressure, or underwater pressure?

Kat: Could be either. I’ll do it.

Ana: Okay! Good luck!


Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: Hello!

Tiny: Oohohohoho! Nice! *points to the Yield*

Dixie: Thanks a lot.

Kat: We’re just giving them the karma they deserve.

Dixie: Totally.


Dixie: Roadblock. Ya gotta do it! I’m done.

Tiny: Haha! Okay.

Kat: Hmmm… Puzzle pieces at the bottom? Okay. Simple enough.

Tiny: Ugh… I’m not the best swimmer, but it’ll be okay.

Kat: See ya, Ana!

Ana: Good luck!

Kat dives gracefully into the water.

Dixie: Nice… Good luck!

Tiny: I’ll be fine!

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Koopa: GOOD JOB!




Koopa: OKAY!

They launch and land near the two other teams.

Koopa: Oof… Hello!

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

Koopa: WHAT?!

Ana: I said, ‘Hi!’



Both shake their heads.

Both: Ugghh…


Koopa: Ro’block…

Paratroopa: You do it. Ya have to dive.

Koopa: Okay.

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Tiny: See ya!

She dives in too.

Koopa: Hey! Wait up!

Koopa makes a third dive.

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
Snifit: Do you understand or not? Do I have to explain this to you yet again?

Booster: I don’t know whether you want me to jump up or fart up!

Snifit: JUMP!

Booster: Jump?! I never said jump! I said jump or fart, but not jump!

Snifit: GET UP HERE!!!

Booster: Fine… spaz…

Snifit: Grrrrrr…

***Booster: Snyfut was goin’ crazy up there! I just couldn’t fart, so I guess he got sadded…

Booster: I’m’s-a comin’!

Snifit: We’re way behind… We need to catch up!

*Shift to underwater camera*
Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat swims down quickly and flawlessly. She scans the ground carefully.

***Kat: They didn’t give you goggles or anything, so it was kind of hard to see, but I think I did okay…

She picks up a piece hidden behind some seaweed.

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Koopa darts around, swimming quite quickly. He spies a piece and grabs it, then begins to surface.

***Koopa: I don’t want to brag, but I think I did the Roadblock pretty awesomely.

***Paratroopa: Ya did good!

As he rises to the surface, he spies another on an outcropping of the big rock structure and grabs it. He breaches the surface

Koopa: Bwaaah… Got two!

Paratroopa: Awesome!

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat surfaces.

Kat: Hoo… I got one… *huff…* This bowl is deep…

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
She also surfaces.

Kat: Did you get one?

Tiny: Ughh… I couldn’t see any.

Kat: Oh well. Keep trying. *dives*

Tiny: …

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
Snifit: Oh, yeah! We’re flying now!

Booster: Hup! Hup! Hup!

Snifit: Great job, Booster! We’ve made it to the top! Excellent!


Snifit: Later.

Booster: NO!!! NAOO!!!

Snifit: It’s at the end of this leg, so let’s finish it. I guess we take the Launch Star?

They both get launched to the Beach Bowl.

Snifit: Woo! Okay!

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Ana: …

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: Uh oh…

Snifit: This the clue? Oh, it’s a Yield!

Booster: Whanao?

Snifit: Oh, no way…

*Camera shot of the Yield*

Snifit: You are kidding me.

Booster: WHAT?! Did you lose my trainplane?!

Snifit: We… have been Yielded.

He turns his head to the others.

Snifit: …by the ninjas.

Booster: Aw?

Snifit: You just stink! We didn’t even Yield you! We Yielded the monkies!

Ana & Dixie: …

***Ana: The team members not doing the Roadblock had to stay up there on top, right next to the Yield. I must say it was most uncomfortable…

Snifit: Ughh… Well, great. We’re already in last, now you’re gonna shove us down further.

Ana: …

Snifit: Oh, now, you can’t hear me?! JERK!

Ana: …

Booster: Coem on, Snifut! Le’s go!

Snifit: We can’t… We have to wait for this hourglass…

Booster: …

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Paratroopa: Aw...kward…

*Camera shift*
Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: *exhales* Another one! Great!

Ana: Great job, Kat!

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
Snifit: You stink, Kat!

Kat: I guess they found out…


Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Tiny: *pants* I can’t… see nothing… down there.

Kat: You still didn’t get one?

Tiny shakes her head.

Kat: That stinks…

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
Snifit: This stinks!!!

***Sinfit: I was annoyed. We’ve been so far behind every single leg, and we only used the Yield to try to save ourselves from elimination. Kat & Ana have never placed lower than third. They didn’t need to Yield us. It accomplished nothing.

Snifit: Isn’t it half done yet?

Booster: Wha’s HAFF?!

Snifit: Ughh… I wish it would hurry up.

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Paratroopa: Keep going, Koop!


Koopa: *bubble noises*

He swims around behind the rock structure.

***Koopa: I was doing pretty well. I had already gotten two. I was right on par with Kat.

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat surfaces.

Kat: Ughh… None that time.

Ana: Keep going!

Kat: *swims over* I’ll try this spot here.

***Kat: The water was relaxing. I now know why people are willing to pay such outrageous fees to visit this place. It was pretty nice.

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
Both: …

Booster: I’M BOARDD!!!

Snifit: I know… This stinks so bad. Unbelievable…

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Ana: Well, they’re not happy.

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: I’m still glad you Yielded them. They really, really need to be eliminated. They’ve been hanging on for too long now.

Ana: We were just doing Karma’s job.

Dixie: Mhm…

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Koopa: I got two! I got two!

Paratroopa: No wai!

Koopa: Woo! Now I have to put it together!

Paratroopa: Nice job!

Koopa: I’m in first… I’m in first…

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Ana: Come on, Kat! Keep going!

Kat: Almost done!

Ana: She’ll manage… I have faith in her…

*Camera shift*
Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
Both: …

Snifit: Two thirds…

Booster: Does that equal six?!

Snifit: No…

Booster: Wah..I got a J in Math…

Snifit: I don’t doubt it…

*Frustrated music*

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Tiny: Pwaahhh…

***Tiny: I was quickly running out of breath…

Dixie: How many do you have, Tiny?!

Tiny: Just… one…

***Tiny: I couldn’t see, I couldn’t breathe, I could barely think. It was frustrating.

Tiny: You… found all… the easy ones…

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat shrugs as she dives.

Ana: One more… one more…

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Koopa: Okay!

***Koopa: I put together the puzzle and then said, ‘What is this?’ All I saw was a mess.

Koopa: Lines… circles… yellow and black square? That must be the clue envelope… What’s this green stuff… I don’t get it.

Paratroopa: Wooo! You can do it!

Koopa: Quiet, please! I need to think!

Koopa: Hmmmm…

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: *exhale* Got it…

***Kat: After I found the last piece, I set out to put them together. They were kinda wet, and didn’t want to fit together snugly.

Kat: C’mon, you…

***Kat: I have to admit. The diagram puzzled me, and I’m usually good with puzzles.

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: Oh, no. There’s some kind of puzzle on there. I really should’ve done this…

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
Snifit: Almost…

Booster: Can’t… stand… still… gonna… EXPLODE!!!

Snifit: Just a few more minutes!

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Koopa: Hmmmmmmmm…

***Koopa: There was a green ball, but it was sorta squished. I guessed it meant Koopa shell, but I had no idea what this big brown line was.

Koopa: I gotta throw another shell? Hmm…

***Koopa: The diagram was über confusing.

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: Umm…

Ana: Is it a picture or something?

Kat: It’s… a diagram… I don’t know what any of this means…

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: Keep going!

Tiny: I got another one… *pants heavily* Bleahh… Ughh… Getting tired…

Dixie: Take a breather!

Tiny: *huff… huff…* Ugggghhhh…

***Tiny: I’m not what you’d call the greatest swimmer.

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master

Snifit: Done!


Snifit: Roadblock… Uhhhhhhhh… I’ll do it.

Booster: WHYY YUUU?!

Snifit: Because you need a brain. See ya.

He hops down.

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: Oh great… Here they come. Come on, Kat! You can figure this out.

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Koopa: Well, whatever it is, it’s tall or long, and I have to throw a shell at it.

Paratroopa: Ooh. There he goes. I hope he’s got it.

***Koopa: I went over to the other side, where the others couldn’t see me. There was a Koopa shell there.

Koopa: Okay… Now…

***Koopa: I figured whatever I had to hit wouldn’t be within sight of the others doing the task, so I looked around for something non-conspicuous.

Koopa: There’s… there’s a palm tree back here.

***Koopa: And then it hit me, or rather, I hit it.


A clue flutters to the ground.

Koopa: Awesome!!!


Koopa: “Read this quietly. Rejoin your partner at the top. The Pit Stop will be visible… ”

Phil: Teams must now make their way back to the top of the Beach Bowl and find their partners. As they scale the mountain, they will see the Pit Stop by this small pond. The last team to check in here… will be eliminated.

Koopa: Pit Stop! All right! I think we’re in first!

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Ana: Come on, Kat… think…

Kat: *sigh* Okay, it’s definitely a Koopa Shell. I gotta throw it at something.

Ana: Ooh. There she goes. I hope she’s got it.

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Tiny: Bleaugh…

Dixie: How you doing?!

Tiny: Can’t… find… last… piece…

Dixie: *sigh* That’s not good… not good at all…

Tiny: Ughhhh… I feel waterlogged…

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master

Snifit: *surfaces* I got two! All right! I’m on my way!

Booster: Uhh, good?

Snifit: Good!

Booster: Güd!

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters

Dixie is pacing nervously.

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: Could it be this?

***Kat: I saw this big tree over by the Koopa shells, and it looked like the diagram: brown with a green “hat”… so I hit it.


***Kat: And down came the clue.

Kat: Awesome!


Kat: Pit Stop… Aw, darn! Looks like the Koopas are on their way already…

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Koopa: Hey, Phil! See ya in a minute!

Phil smiles and nods.

Koopa: Para! How do I get back up?!

Paratroopa: Come over to this side, there’s like a wall jump thing.

Koopa: ‘K…

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: Ana! Get ready to leave!

Ana: Woo! Awesome!

Kat: I guess I have to go back here, and- Oh! There’s Phil. That’s good, I know where he is…

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
Dixie and Booster: …

Dixie: Come on, Tiny! Don’t give up!!!

Tiny is panting heavily.

Dixie: You can do it!

Tiny: I’m… I’m trying…

Dixie: …

*Camera shift*
Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Koopa: Come on! Down this way!

Paratroopa: Woohoo! Good job, Koopa!

Koopa: Awesome!

They step on the mat.

Koopa: Phil!

Phil: Koopa & Paratroopa?

Both: …

Phil: You’re team number 1!!!

Koopa: Woohoo!

Paratroopa: Wheeee-heeeeeee!!!

Phil: Congratulations. You two will be one of the teams racing to the finish line for the 1 million coins.

Koopa: Awesome! Awesome, awesome!

Paratroopa: We knew it! We knew right from the beginning we were winners!

Koopa: Winners to the end!

Phil: Well, I have some good news for you. As the winners of this leg of the race, you have won a free trip to the Sea Slide Galaxy, compliments of Rosalina and her spectacular Comet Observatory. You can enjoy that after the race.

Koopa: Cool!

Paratroopa: Great!

***Koopa: We’re in the finals, and we’ll be leaving for the final leg in first place. We couldn’t be happier. Everything is going extra-spectacular.

***Paratroopa: Whee-heeeee! I can hardly contain my joy! This is everything I’ve ever dreamed of! We did it!!!

Koopa: Woo!!!

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
Snifit: I got three now! One was hidden under a rock, of all places!

Booster: Hurry your butt up!

Snifit: I’m going!

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: Oh, man. They’re tied with us now… We need to step it up…

Tiny surfaces, panting.

Dixie: She’s so worn out… C’mon, Tiny! You can do it… Find that last piece.

Tiny: Ugghhh…

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: It was riiight… here!

Ana: It’s the Pit Stop!

Phil: Kat & Ana… you’re team number two!

Kat: That’s fine. That’s okay. We’re fine.

Phil: Congratulations. You will be one of the three teams racing for the 1 million coins.

Kat: Beautiful!

Ana: It doesn’t seem real. It’s like a dream.

Phil: You two have consistently been in the top three. You think you have a chance to win?

Kat: Without a doubt.

Ana: We will emerge victorious.

***Kat: I can’t say I didn’t expect us to be in the finals. I felt right from the beginning that it was a given. We are Team Katana. We will defeat all.

Ana: Yay!

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Tiny: *sharp exhale* *pants*

Dixie: Tiny?

Tiny: I… got… it…

Dixie: Good! Excellent!

***Tiny: After nearly losing my mind, I finally found the last piece, so I set out to put them together.

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
Snifit: I got it!

Booster: WAO! You’s faster than the speed of smell!

Snifit: Sure…

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
***Tiny: Then, I saw that Snifit was right ahead me. I had to step it up.

Tiny: Okay… This… goes here… and… this…

***Tiny: But I was so out of breath…

Tiny: Uuuggghhh…

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
Snifit: Okay… The puzzle is done… Okay!

***Snifit: The puzzle made perfect sense to me.

Snifit: I’m golden!

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Tiny: Done…

***Tiny: The puzzle… it had this weird diagram on it…

Tiny: Ummmm…

Dixie: What are they both doing?

Booster: Poopin’?

Dixie: Looks like she’s confused…

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Tiny: Shell? I need a shell…

***Tiny: That was the only thing recognizable to me. I knew it was a shell.

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
Snifit: Heh… She’ll never catch up to me now!

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Tiny: Okay… Got my shell… Now what?

***Tiny: …but I had no idea what to do next. Snifit disappeared.

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
Snifit: Yeah, it makes sense. It’s a shell.

Booster: GO SNYFUT!!!


Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Tiny: Oh no, now where do I go?

Dixie: Oh man… Things are getting intense… Eh, I’m not worried. We can’t possibly lose to these two idiots!

Booster: Sumwon say mah name?!

Dixie: 9.9

Tiny: Oh man… oh man…

She wanders off.

***Tiny: I was worried because I didn’t know what the second part of the diagram was. I didn’t know what to throw the shell at.

Tiny: Come on, Tiny… think!

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
Snifit: Got it!


Snifit: Pit Stop! Booster! I’m comin’!

Booster: Wa?

Snifit: Booster! I’m comin’! Get ready to run!

Booster: YAY?

Tiny: …

***Tiny: And the animosity was high…

Tiny: Maybe… Could it be this?

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
Snifit: Come on! The trainplane is at the Pit Stop!


Booster: Hai!

Phil: Wh… Oh! Hello… Booster & Snifit… you’re the third team to arrive. However, on this leg of the race you have been Marked for Elimination. For that, you will have to wait out a time penalty.

*Flashback to the Observatory*

Phil: But, because you were delayed by production difficulties at the Observatory, your penalty has been reduced to 15 minutes.

Snifit: Okay…

Booster: Trainplane?

Snifit: In fifteen minutes.

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Tiny: Uuuughhhhhh… This can’t be it!

Dixie: Tiny!!! Go back!

Tiny: Huh?

Dixie: Snifit got his clue near the Koopa Shells!

Tiny: Where is he?!

Dixie: He’s waiting out his penalty!

Tiny: WHAT?!

***Tiny: I knew I had to rush, rush, rush.

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master – 9 minutes remaining
Snifit: Looks like we’re gonna make it, but it’s gonna be close!!!

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Tiny: Yeah… This has to be it…

She throws the shell. *BLAM*

Tiny: Aha! There’s the clue!

Dixie: Good job!

Tiny: Gotta run! Gotta go now!!!

She runs off.


Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master – 5 minutes remaining
Snifit: Waiting… waiting…

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters

Tiny: Dixie! Help me get back up there!!!

Dixie: Umm… Back here, I think… Come on! You can make it!

Tiny: Oh, man! Gonna be close! *pants* Can’t let him beat me… Back…… and then-

She trips and smacks into the ground.

 Tiny: GAHH! *groan*

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master – 2 minutes remaining
Snifit: Oops! Sorry, Tiny!

Tiny: Hey! Gah! The Pit Stop!

Dixie: Oh, no!

She bounds up the wall and reaches her partner.

Tiny: Come on! Follow me!

Dixie: Come on! All we have to do is beat Snifit!

Snifit (distant): Not on your life!

Tiny: Runn!!!

They dash off as the music gets really intense.

Dixie: Go! You’re faster! Just go!

Tiny has reached the Pit Stop.

Tiny: Come on!!!

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master – 30 seconds remaining
Snifit: I… can’t… lose!!!

Dixie: Gaaaahhh!!!


All: …

*Tense drums*

All four team members stand tense. Meanwhile, Kat & Ana and Koopa & Paratroopa are watching from a distance.

Phil: Booster & Snifit! Your time penalty had just ended! You are team number three! Congratulations!!!

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master

Snifit: Wah? Whaa?! WAAAAHHHHH!!!

He hugs Booster.

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Tiny is panting.

Phil: Congratulations. You are the final team that will be racing to the finish line for one million coins.

Dixie: Bu… Uh…

Snifit: Thanks! Thank you so much! We knew we could do it!

***Snifit: We walked off the mat feeling super proud… Well… I did. As you know, Booster is devoid of… well… anything…

***Booster: We’re still racing?! When’d dis happen?!

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Phil: Dixie & Tiny… I’m sorry to tell you you’re the last team to arrive…

Dixie: *whines* Noooooo…

Tiny: I can’t believe we didn’t make it… So close… Super close…

Phil: You’ve both been eliminated from the race.

Dixie: It feels… so surreal… We’ve been eliminated after all of our hard work… But we tried our best, and there’s nothing we can do now…

Tiny: (sobbing) It’s all my fault…

Dixie: No it isn’t, Sis! You did your absolute best! I couldn’t be prouder of you!

Tiny sobs.

Dixie: It’s okay…

***Dixie: Tiny… really felt bad. But, we’re a team, and we both lost. We tried our absolute best, and no one could ask more of us.

***Tiny: I was feeling bad… I messed up the Roadblock and I tripped…

***Dixie: But things like that happen, Tiny. We’re a team, we both lost… and it’s not your fault…

***Tiny: Thanks…

***Dixie: It’s not your fault.

*Shot of them hugging Kat & Ana*

***Dixie: We’ve made some life longfriends, and we’ve had an experience we’ll never forget…

They walk off…

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
***Kat: We can’t lose.

***Ana: Impossible!

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
***Paratroopa: Right to the finish line!!!

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
***Snifit: All those other teams have been lucky. They’ve been very, very lucky… But their luck’s about to run out. We’re the new frontrunners.

***Booster: Heh heh… I want to eats the coins!

***Snifit: Well sure, Booster! As long as we win! Are you enjoying your invisible trainplane?

***Booster: *baby giggling*

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
***Kat: We’ve been at the front of the pack the entire race. We’re not planning to stop now. Winning is simply inevitable for us.

***Ana: We will cross the finish line!

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
***Paratroopa: We feel confident! We have the skill, we have the confidence, and we’re gonna win!

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
***Snifit: They’re all losers. We’re the only team to survive a Yield.

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
***Ana: It’s gonna get ugly, but we will rise above.

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
***Koopa: We will win… The Amazing Race.

The credits roll…
