The Amazing Race MK II

By Giga Bowser NS

Episode 2
Title: What is it, Timmy? Did Lassie fall down the well?

Phil: Previously on The Amazing Race MK: 11 teams of two embarked on an amazing journey from Poshley Heights. Teams included two sets of sisters, who eventually teamed up; friends from Mario’s adventures; evildoers; and someone named Booster.


Phil: Their first stop was Bowser’s Castle, which threw many teams for a loop. The confusing hallways and notoriously twisted design of the castle ended up getting many teams lost. The first flight to the castle was delayed, which allowed teams that thought they were behind to surge ahead. Unknowingly, Kat & Ana checked in first.

Kat: How’d we get first?

Phil: In the end, it was evil sisters and Shadow Sirens Beldam & Marilyn who were eliminated. 10 teams remain. The race has just begun, and it’s about to get tougher. Who will be eliminated… next?

The title plays with a red X over Beldam & Marilyn.

Phil, voiceover: *shots of Bowser’s Castle, thunder* THIS, Is Bowser’s Castle! Situated in the center of Dark Land, this foreboding castle looms over all in the land. It is the home of Bowser, (standing amongst many minions, end voiceover) and was the first Pit Stop…  in a race around the MK! Teams arrived here for a mandatory rest period. Will the early-formed alliance between sisters Kat & Ana and sisters Dixie & Tiny last? Or will it crumble? Kat & Ana, who were the first to arrive at 10:09 pm… will depart… at 10:09 AM.


Kat: Begin your journey by flying to Mushroom Kingdom City, then take a train to Rose Town!

Phil: Teams must now fly more than 1,000 miles to Mushroom Kingdom City, the capital of the Mushroom Kingdom. Used as the filming spot for Peach’s Castle during Super Mario RPG, this bustling city is a metropolis. Teams must then catch a train and ride an additional 100 miles to Rose Town, where they will find their next clue.

Ana: You have 150 coins for this leg of the race!

Kat: Got it!

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters - 10:10 AM

Dixie: All right! We’re off!

Tiny: Sounds like fun!

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: You two ready?

Dixie: Lead the way!

***Kat: There’s nothing wrong with having a little alliance early in the race. There are more teams out there, so you really have to watch your back. Having someone to trust as you move through these tasks is nice.

Dixie: To the airport we go!

Ana: I hope we can get on a really early flight!

Dixie: Me too!

Iggy/Lemmy -- Brothers - 10:29

Iggy: All right! Let’s go!

Lemmy: See ya, Dad! Home sweet home no more…

Iggy: This will be tougher… We haven’t been there before.

Lemmy: All the more reason to step up our game!

***Iggy: We do not like the monkey ninja alliance! They’re a threat that needs to be… taken care of.

Iggy: To the airport!

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: Is it open?

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: Looks like it!

Dixie: Good…

They enter.

Ana: Hi! We’re looking for a flight to MKC.

Dark Koopatrol: …

Kat: … Um…

D. Koopatrol: I’M LOOKING!!!

All 4: o.0

D. Koopatrol: *low growl* All flights are cancelled until noon.

Kat: What?!

Ana: WHY?!

D. Koopatrol: Bad weather… Duh… It’s Dark Land…

Dixie: Must be all those clouds!

Tiny: Aw, man!!! Are you sure? 100 percent sure?!



Tiny: Right…

Foshi/Xoshi -- Lifelong Friends - 10:39 AM

Xoshi: Okay! To Rose Town we go.

Foshi: Come on! Let’s hurry to catch an early flight.

***Foshi: We’re not letting the results of the first leg get us down. That castle is way confusing!

***Xoshi: We need to take command and lead the way to victory!!!

***Foshi: … What are you? A dramatic film?

Foshi: Off we go!

Iggy/Lemmy -- Brothers
Iggy: Look! There they are!

Lemmy: What are they doing sitting around?

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: Hey you two. All flights are cancelled until noon.

Iggy: What? No way!

Dixie: Stinks, doesn’t it?

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners - 10:45 AM

Paratroopa: All right! Here we go!

Koopa: Rose Town’s supposed to be really nice.

Paratroopa: Too bad this isn’t a vacation!

Koopa: See ya, lava pits!

Foshi/Xoshi -- Lifelong Friends

Foshi: Ugh… Dark Land is strange…

Xoshi: It’s… dark…

Foshi: Look, we’ve caught up!

Xoshi: They’re all sitting around… That can’t be good.

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: And yet another recipient of bad news!

Ana: No flights ‘til noon...

Xoshi: I don’t believe you.


Kooper/Koops -- Recent Friends - 10:50 AM

Kooper: Take a train to Rose Town! Cool!

Koops: Wasn’t that in Mario’s movie?

Kooper: Yeah! Super Mario RPG! That movie was awesome!

Neil/Ella -- Golfers - 10:52 AM

Ella: Okay! Rose Town!

Neil: Let’s do zis!

***Neil: We did pretty darn awesome in the last leg, considering our flight was delayed. We’re gonna make up lost ground and surge ahead!

Neil: Rock on!!!

Foshi/Xoshi -- Lifelong Friends
Foshi: You’re absolutely sure?


Foshi: Hey! I’m a paying customer… technically… and I demand respect!

D. Koopatrol: Respect this! *SMACK*

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Both: …

Koopa: Is this a bad time?

Xoshi: Oh, hey you two. No flights ‘til noon.

Paratroopa: Oh…

Xoshi: Foshi finds that hard to believe.

*Random fight sounds*

Koopa: I can see that…

Patrick/Norman -- Friends - 11:00 AM

Patrick: To Rose Town! Nice!

Norman: That’s quite a bit of traveling to do! We’d better get rolling!

***Patrick: I know I can count on Norman. He helped me get through the last leg, and I know he’ll help me with this one too.

***Norman: We’re not in the place we want to be, but as long as we’re not last, we’ll be fine!

Norman: We’re off!

Kooper/Koops -- Recent Friends
Kooper: You asked everywhere?

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Koopa: Everywhere! The whole airport’s been shut down due to the dark fog cover.

Kooper: Stupid Dark Land…

Neil/Ella -- Golfers
Neil: I guess we’re just hangin’ out…

Cackletta/Fawful -- Evil Doers - 11:10 AM

Fawful: MUSTARD your way to Mushroom Kingdom City!

Cackletta: Yadda yadda yadda mustard. We’ll read the rest later! Let’s go!!!

Fawful: Indeed! We must catch up to the other fink rats!

Cackletta: They must not be allowed to get on an earlier flight than us!

***Fawful: Mustard, mustard, fury, mustard, fink rats, mustard, fury, fury, fury, mustard, pickle!

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master - 11:15 AM
Snifit: Okay, Booster! We’re ready to go!

Booster: What cheese is flying around Jupiter today?

Snifit: Mozzarella.


Snifit: Ooh, we get to ride more planes, Booster!

Booster: *Booom* Let’s go!

Snifit: All right! Let’s catch up!

Patrick/Norman -- Friends

Norman: There’s absolutely no flights?

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Ana: Absolutely none.

Patrick: Everyone’s gonna catch up!

Norman: Stinks, doesn’t it?

Cackletta/Fawful -- Evil Doers
Cackletta: Nothing? What do you mean nothing?

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Koopa: Absolutely nothing.

Cackletta: Unbelievable! What a great way for us to catch up!


Fawful: Fink Rats!

Foshi/Xoshi -- Lifelong Friends
Foshi: Oh! There they are!

Neil/Ella -- Golfers
Ella: Everyone’s here now.

Foshi: Hey, you guys! What took so long?

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
Snifit: Booster stole a tank…

Booster: My pancreas was in there!!!

The Whole Airport: …

Foshi: Right…

A clock moves in fast motion.

Snifit: *sweatdrop* Well, it’s noon now, we should be boarding soon.

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: Are they ready?

Tiny: I think so. Let’s get going!

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

Ana: Here we go!

Kat: Off to Never Never Land!

Kooper/Koops -- Recent Friends
Kooper: It’s gonna be exciiiiting!!!

The plane flies off into the distance as the music abruptly ends,

Phil: All teams are now flying from Dark Land to Mushroom Kingdom City. When they land, they must catch a train to Rose Town

The plane lands/

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: Go! Fast! Hurry!

Ana: Follow us, guys!

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: Hurry up!

Tiny: It’s over there!

Dixie: Wow! Look at the city!

Tiny: No time! Running time!

Neil/Ella -- Golfers
Neil: Yeah! Let’s run! Run! Run!

Ella: Train! Train! Where?

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Paratroopa: Wheee! Finally off that infernal contraption! Flying with wings is so much better!

Koopa: Come on! Let’s go! Find the trains!

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Ana: Over there! I see it!

Kat: Inside! Hurry!


Kat: Hi! We need a train to Rose Town!

Toadster: One half hour wait time

Kat: Oh, really? Okay.

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: We’re all gonna make it? Aww, okay…

Video of all the other teams entering the train station is shown.

Patrick/Norman -- Friends
Patrick: Huff…

Norman: We all made it?

Foshi/Xoshi -- Lifelong Friends
Xoshi: Looks like it!

Foshi: We’re all on the same train!

Iggy/Lemmy -- Brothers
Iggy: We all made it? Okay, good.

Lemmy: Heehee… Look at Booster!

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
Booster is hugging a train.

Booster: Traaaaaaaaaaaaaaiiiiiiiiiinnnnnnnnn…

Snifit: Ummmm… Booster?

Booster: TRAIN?! I mean, WHAT?!

Snifit: Please get down…

Booster: My train!

Snifit: No, it isn’t. The officials will… um… blow it up if you keep touching it.

*Poof* Booster is on the other side of the room.

Booster: Ohhh-kaaaaaaaeeee!!!

Snifit: *sigh*

The train leaves the station.

*Train whistle*
Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: Looks like we’re here!

Ana: Sure is pretty!

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: Yeah! It’s a nice quaint town!

Foshi/Xoshi -- Lifelong Friends
Foshi: Can we disembark? Okay, let’s go!

Xoshi: Let’s go for first this time!!!

(Riiiiiiiiip) (Riiiiiiiiip) (Riiip) (Riiiiiiiiiiiiip)

Kat: Travel to…

Dixie: Travel to…

Foshi: Oh, nuts!

Phil: Teams must now enter the nearby forest, infamously known as the Forest Maze. Its notoriously confusing and twisted paths may leave teams lost, forever… Teams will find their next clue a few meters into the forest… if they don’t get lost by then.

Xoshi: That is not what I wanted to hear!

***Foshi: We wanted to come in first on this leg, but because of the randomness of that forest, our chances were diminished.

Foshi: Come on! Let’s just go!

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: Follow us! It’s right over there! Not very far!

Ana: Oh, boy! Into the maze we go!

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: You ready for another adventure?

Kooper/Koops -- Recent Friends
Kooper: All right, Koops, are you ready?!

Koops: I hope we don’t get lost…

Kooper: Eh, it’ll be a piece of cake!

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Koopa: Come on! Forest! Into! Hurry! Run!

Paratroopa: Speak! In! Sentences!

Koopa: O! K!

Both laugh.

Neil/Ella -- Golfers
Neil: Wahooooo! Forest Maze, here we come!!!

Ella: Don’t go running off blindly! You’ll…


Ella: …run into something…

Iggy/Lemmy -- Brothers
Lemmy: We are officially off!

Iggy: What a nice city! Dad needs to invade this place!

Lemmy: Yup!

Foshi/Xoshi -- Lifelong Friends


Phil: A Detour is a choice between two tasks, each with its own pros and cons! This Detour will send teams deep into the heart of the Maze looking for one of two things! The choice? Fungi or Fun Guy! In Fungi, teams will receive pictures of Mushrooms that grow inside this forest and will be instructed to harvest 10 of them. However, what teams don’t know is that an ambiguous creature known as an Amanita often pretends to be a Mushroom, so teams may get more bite from their Mushroom. In Fun Guy, teams walk a short distance to this field of logs. Once there, they must figure out how to obtain 1 Frog Coin. The way to do this is to jump on a Wiggler many consecutive times until he gives one up. This task is simpler, but teams will have no idea what they’re doing.

Xoshi: Yep, they’re both in the forest…

Foshi: Ugghhh…

Xoshi: Let’s go pick the Mushrooms. Sounds easy enough. We’ll just follow paths until we find some.

Foshi: All right, let’s get going.

Patrick/Norman -- Friends
Patrick: Ohh… That forest looks… scary…

Norman: C’mon, ya big wimp! There’s probably nothing in there but trees and Mushrooms!

Patrick: Hmmm…

Norman: We’re almost there! Let’s hurry!

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
Snifit: Booster, look! It’s Forest Maze!

Booster: Yeah! Where the bow was freezing the people of the flower near starry logs!

Snifit: You find such interesting ways to state actual facts.

Booster: Can we go insideeee?E/eSDF”ASfa?

Snifit: Ummm… Yes?

Booster: Okay! *ZOOOOM*

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas

All Four: Detour!!!

Ana: Fungi or Fun Guy?

Dixie: What? You said the same thing twice!

Kat: It’s pronounced Fun-Gee, not Fun-Gaaii, the first one.

Ana: Is it?

All Four: …

Tiny: Someone pick one!

Ana: Oh, right. The Mushrooms is a lot less cryptic. I have no idea where to find a Frog Coin.

Dixie: Me neither, so let’s go do that.

Cackletta/Fawful -- Evil Doers
Cackletta: Come, Fawful! We are falling behind!

Fawful: MUSTARD! Okay…

Cackletta: We must reach that forest, now!

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners

Koopa: Detour!

Paratroopa: Oh! I think I know how to get a Frog Coin! You have to…

Koopa: Shhh! Here they come!

Kooper/Koops -- Recent Friends
Koops: Grab the clue!


Kooper: It’s a Detour!

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Koopa: Come on, let’s go!

Kooper: What’re they doing?

Koops: I don’t know, but I think the Mushrooms is easier…

Kooper: Hmmm… I guess so…

Foshi/Xoshi -- Lifelong Friends
Foshi: Well, we found the one growing up here, where’s the rest?

Xoshi: We’ll have to go down this log.

Foshi: All right! *enters* Woah! Neat cave!

Xoshi: I think these Mushrooms grow a lot in subterranean locations.

Foshi: Blah blah blah, just grab some!

Neil/Ella -- Golfers


Ella: Okay, Rock Star. Which one?

Neil: Umm… Well, they both sound dull, but I understand the Mushroom one, so let’s do that.

Ella: Fine, let’s go.

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: The pipe’s the only way to continue!

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: We have one, so yeah.

Ana: This forest is spooky… It’s like the trees have eyes…

The Camera shows a tree with two glowing orbs in it.

Shadow: Oh, sorry, that’s me!


Shadow: … What? You’ve never seen a ghost before?

Ana: … Oh… You don’t want to eat my brains?

Other Three: …

Iggy/Lemmy -- Brothers
(Riiiiiiiiip) (Riiiiiiiiiiiip)

Iggy: Detour!

Patrick/Norman -- Friends
Norman: Detour!

Patrick: Fungi or Fun Guy? Ha!

Iggy/Lemmy -- Brothers
Lemmy: I know the secret of the Frog Coin. Follow me!

Patrick/Norman -- Friends
Patrick: Ooh, they know it. Should we follow them?

Norman: Eh, why not?


Foshi/Xoshi -- Lifelong Friends
Xoshi: I wish we had better light…

Foshi: *Flare*

Xoshi: Oh, thanks, man! Here’s one!

Amanita: *Random Gibberish*

Xoshi: Gah! What the?

Foshi: Hey! That must be one of those fake Mushrooms, guys.

Xoshi: Oh… Hey, he’s kinda cute…



Foshi: *sigh*

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Both: Hahahahahahaha!!!

Koopa: What a loser!

Paratroopa: C’mon! Step on the spring and we’ll head up!

Koopa: Okay! I hope you know where you’re going!

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master

Booster: Detour flavored chocolate!!!

Snifit: DON’T eat the clue!

Booster: Kay! *glee face*

Snifit: You wanna collect Mushrooms or find a Frog Coin?

Booster: Mushrooms yummy! Yumshrooms Mushy!

Snifit: … Sure…

Cackletta/Fawful -- Evil Doers
Cackletta: Ack! There it is!

(Fuuuury riiiiiip)

Fawful: It is being Detour time!

Cackletta: Hmm… Mushrooms?

Fawful: Mustardrooms!

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Ana: Here’s a Mushroom!

Other 3: Noo!!!

Amanita: *SNARRRLLL*

Ana: Eek!

Kat: That’s an Amanita! Be careful of them!

Ana: Oh boy…

Kat: Come on. We’ve gotten three more from this cave, so let’s exit.

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: Sounds like a plan!

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Koopa: Ah! Here we are!

Paratroopa: Wheee! There they are, all right! The seven pipes!

Koopa: So, now we gotta find which one has the Wiggler…

Paratroopa Hello? Wiggler? Where are you?

Koopa: Hmm… He’s hiding somewhere…

Kooper/Koops -- Recent Friends
Koops: Ehhmsnmm… This cave is daaaark…

Kooper: Eh! This is nothing! Come on, look for more Mushrooms!

Koops: I… hm…

Neil/Ella -- Golfers
Neil: Woah! Neat-o cave-o!

Neil: Heh! This is gonna go smoooooothly!

Foshi/Xoshi -- Lifelong Friends
Foshi: *grunt* Another cave?

Xoshi: Whoa! This one’s huuuuuuge!

Foshi: Watch out for the holes…

Xoshi: Is that a Mushroom?

Foshi: Ummmmmm… Yep.

Xoshi: Good… Let’s hope for no more Amanitas…

Foshi: *funny accent* Am-a-neee-tas!

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Paratroopa: There! He’s in that log! I heard him!

Koopa: Hey! Wiggler! Whaddaya doin’? Bowser wants a meeting!!!

Wiggler: (emerging) What? Reall- OW!

Koopa: Ha! Ha! Ha!

Wiggler: Ow! Stop that! Stop jumping on me!!!

Koopa: No! I’m going for the high score! 4! 5!


Paratroopa: Aw, sweet! The Frog Coin!

Koopa: Yo, dude! Thanks a lot! Sorry for jumping on you! Hey! I’ve heard some news! There’s other teams coming here to jump on you too! You’d better hide!

Wiggler: Eeeek!

Paratroopa: Nice! Okay, where do we go now?

Koopa: I’m not sure… We have to find the save block…

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
Snifit: Are you finding any Mushrooms?


Booster: Yummy!

Amanita: Aaaaauuuuuggggghhhhh!!!

Snifit: Booster! Spit that out! You don’t know where it’s been!


Booster: Feh! Tastes like meh! Let’s get more Mushyrooms!

Snifit: Good idea!

Cackletta/Fawful -- Evil Doers
Both: …

Cackletta: What an idiot…

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: Oh, ‘kay! This is a nice large cave!

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Tiny: Should be plenty of Mushrooms down here!

Dixie: There’s some in the corner!

Iggy: Heeeeeere Wiggler, Wiggler, Wiggler!

Lemmy: … No…

Patrick/Norman -- Friends
Norman: So, right here? What do we do?

Patrick: I dunno. What’re those weirdos doing?

Norman: They’re looking in the pipes… or logs… Let’s have a look!

Patrick: Hmmm…

Amanita: Hello thar!!!

Patrick: Aaaaaaaauuuuugggggghhhh!!! Talking Mushroom!!!

Other Three: …

Lemmy: Sure, why not?

Neil/Ella -- Golfers
Neil: All right! Let’s keep moving!

Ella: There should be more near all those logs.

Neil: There’s other teams there! That must be the other Detour!

All Four: Hello? Anyone down there? C’mon!

Ella: Sounds difficult. Let’s go!

Foshi/Xoshi -- Lifelong Friends
Foshi: Aha! I see it! Thought you could hide in this here cave, didja?

Xoshi: Great! That’s our last one!

Foshi: Finally! Now we gotta find the save block, there’s a guy there to collect our Mushrooms.

Xoshi: Well, I didn’t see a save block back there, so let’s keep moving.

Foshi: That task stunk… Stupid Amanitas!

Xoshi: At least we’re done! And I think we’re in first!

Lemmy: Is he, now?

Iggy: We hafta go jump on him, right?

Lemmy: Right, let’s enter the log.

*Pipe Noise*

Patrick/Norman -- Friends
Norman: Huh? Yo, Pat! Where’d they go?

Pat: *Random screaming gibberish*

Norman: Will you put the Amanita down, already?!

Pat: Helllpp meeeeeeeeee!!!

Cackletta/Fawful -- Evil Doers
Cackletta: What? What fury?

Norman: C’mon! Let’s do the task.

Iggy/Lemmy -- Brothers
Iggy: Nice jumping, Lemmy!

Lemmy: Shush!

Patrick/Norman -- Friends
Norman: *smile*

***Iggy: I feel stupid. I tipped off Team Delfino. They didn’t know what to do at the task, but I gave it away.

Norman: Down we go!

Kooper/Koops -- Recent Friends
Kooper’s head pops out of a pipe.

Kooper: Anything?

Koops: No! There’s no Mushrooms in these pipes!

Kooper: Augh! What a waste of time!!!

Koops: *sigh*

Kooper: Come on, let’s go check some other place!

Foshi/Xoshi -- Lifelong Friends - Currently in 1st place
Foshi: Oh, there it is! Over there!

Xoshi: Sweet! Here you go! 20 Mushrooms!

Guerilla: *Monkey Noises*

Foshi: Er… Thanks… DK…


Foshi: Roadblock.

Phil: A Roadblock is a task that only one person may perform! No person may do more than six Roadblocks on the entire race! This Roadblock allows this forest to truly live up to its name, and allows teams to fully “enjoy” that. In this Roadblock, one team member will be muted by this Octolot so they cannot help the one participating in the Roadblock. The participating team member will be given a very rudimentary map of the most confusing areas of the Forest. Only certain landmarks and the finish have been identified. Teams must use this map to find the area where Mario battled Bowyer in Super Mario RPG, which is the Pit Stop for this leg of the race. The last team to check in here… may be eliminated.

Foshi: Who’s got a great sense of direction… Oh man…

Xoshi: I’ll do it.

Foshi: All right, Xosh will do the Roadblock.

Xoshi: *reads* Use the map to find the Pit Stop! Your teammate cannot help you in any way!

Octolot: San Kintuperluiiingia!

Foshi: … !........?...............................!!!

Xoshi: Oh, yeah! Says here you have to be muted!

Foshi: -.-

Xoshi: All right, let’s go.

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
Booster: SO!!! What number are we eating?!

Snifit: Ummm… We have about 10… That’s half, Booster.

Booster: Here’s Waaaan!!!

Snifit: Booster, for the last time! We are NOT collecting Amanitas!!!

Amanita: Putmedownputmedownputmedownputmedownputmedownputmedownputmedownputmedownputmedownputmedown

Booster: Hahahahahahahaha!! He yells like a cheeseburger!!! Wahahahahaha!!!

Snifit & Amanita: …

Kooper/Koops -- Recent Friends
Kooper: Okay, NOW we’re back on track!

Koops: Mhm… There’s lots of Mushrooms down here.

Iggy/Lemmy -- Brothers
Iggy: S’cuse us!

Lemmy: Make room!

Kooper/Koops -- Recent Friends
Koops: Oh… Pardon me…

Kooper: What’re those loonies doing? They’re skipping all the ‘Shrooms!

Koops: They must’ve done the other task, I bet it was real easy…

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners - Currently in 2nd place.
Koopa: Roadblock… Who has a good sense of direction?

Paratroopa: Good sense of direction… You wanna do it?

Koopa: Yeah, sure! Sounds like a good challenge! (Rip) Use this map…

Octolot: Mememememememememememem hadinghooott!!

Paratroopa: *Mouths “Wheeeee”*

Koopa: Lawl.

(Riiiiiiiiip) (Riiiiiiiiiiiiiip)

Kat & Dixie: Roadblock!!!

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas - Currently in 3rd Place
Ana: Ooh, we need someone with a good sense of direction.

Kat: Me! I’ll do it!

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters - Currently in 4th Place
Dixie: And I’ll take this one too.

Tiny: All right, Sis! Good luck out there!

Octolot: Dux Tnefghanist Naaaleingstttoool!

Dixie: And yoooooooou get to be muted! How cute~

Patrick/Norman -- Friends
Wiggler: Someone help meeeeeeee!!!

Norman: Give us the Coin!

Wiggler: No! I love my Coins! I don’t wanna lose anymore!!! Waaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh!

Norman: Give it or Patrick sits on you.


Wiggler: Here you are! Have a nice day!

Norman: Gee, thanks!

Patrick: Hey! Are you calling me fat?

Norman: Not at all, now let’s get outta here!

Patrick: …

Foshi/Xoshi -- Lifelong Friends

Xoshi: All right, now where in the world are we? This map stinks!!!

***Xoshi: We already knew we were in first, and we weren’t about to let a silly little maze drop us to third again!


Foshi: …

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: Hmmm… I sort of understand this map… sort of…

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: You see this big tree printed on this square? Is that this big tree?

They look at the tree.

Kat: Hmmm… Hard to tell… This forest is full of large trees…

Dixie: Ugh… So frustrating.

Kat: Calm down, we’ll get through this if we persevere…

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: Yeah, see? Here’s another huge tree. This one could be it too…

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: This isn’t helping; we need to find something more recognizable…

Kat: I have a feeling that this tree will be easily recognizable once we see it, otherwise it wouldn’t be marked on the map.

Koopa: What is it, Timmy? Did Lassie fall down the well?

Paratroopa smiles.

Koopa: Why do I get the feeling someone did that joke already?

Paratroopa points up into the tops of one of the trees.
