The Amazing Race MK II

By Giga Bowser NS

Episode 5
Title: I need your brains, not your emotions

Phil: Previously… on the Amazing Race MK!


Phil: Teams discovered they were heading to the beautiful landscape of Cheep Cheep Beach. Airport delays allowed many teams to catch up easily. Once at their destination, teams found a tough decision to be had…

Dixie: Catch 3 or Catch 1?

Phil: Indecision and troublesome targets caused teams grief, and even managed to finally separate long-time allies Dixie & Tiny and Kat & Ana from each other. At the Roadblock, teams got to experience firsthand what it felt like to be a tropical fish. Suffering from a poor Detour choice, Patrick and Norman fell behind even though they felt that they had the home-team advantage. Ultimately they came in last… and were eliminated. Now… 7 teams remain. Who will be eliminated… next?

The opening plays with a new Red X over Patrick & Norman.

Phil: This is Cheep Cheep Beach, a group of small islands connected to each other and a main peninsula by deep sandbars. It’s known for its tropical beauty and wondrous sights. Though one brilliant sight is hidden from view. These, are the mystic underwater caves, which were the fourth Pit Stop, in a race around the world. Teams arrived here for a mandatory rest period…

Foshi: Okay, get me out! Now!

Phil: During the Pit Stop, Foshi’s extreme aquaphobia and the subterranean cave’s affects on his unique body forced him to be evacuated from the resting location in the underwater caves. As a result, all teams will be departing from the Beach Huts… Dixie & Tiny, who were the first to arrive, will depart, at 10:59 PM.


Tiny: *yawn* Okay, make your way, by whatever means possible… to *gasp!* Rainbow Road!!!

Phil: Teams must now head from this modern Mario Kart track…to this classic one: Rainbow Road, a magnificent manifestation of pure stardust and rainbows that floats high above Mushroom City. There are three different ways to get here. The first and fastest way is by teleportation. However, this method is limited. Hidden around Cheep Cheep Beach are three keys. Any team that can manage to find one will be able to teleport directly to Rainbow Road. The second way is by Passenger Bill, a specially equipped Banzai Bill. This is almost as fast as teleportation, but the launch pad is in the next city, and this method is very expensive and limited by hours of operation. The final method is to fly to Mushroom City and then climb Star Road.

Dixie: Ohmigosh! How in the world… or off the world in this case… are we gonna do that?!

Tiny: Says here the three methods… Okay, teleportation is the fastest way, so let’s start looking for a key. If we see two other teams, then we’ll go do something else.

***Dixie: This leg felt ominous for us. Rainbow Road felt extremely far off and exotic to us.

Tiny: Where in the world should we look?

Dixie: The clue says they’re somewhere along the Mario Kart track, and they’re not underwater.

Tiny: Let’s start near the coral!

***Dixie: We’re leaving this leg in first place. That’s the good news. The bad news is we’ve been separated from Kat & Ana. We hope that they can catch up to us.

Dixie: Ah yes, maytee! I be feelin’ like a pirate searchin’ for treasure!

Tiny: I hope these things aren’t buried!

Dixie: Eh, I doubt it…

Tiny: When did the other team check in?

Dixie: I think we have like ten more minutes.

Tiny: Ack! Hey crab! Get outta here! We’ve all had enough of you!

Dixie: I still can’t believe they chose the crabs!

Tiny: Man, oh man!

Dixie: Nothing at the huts, it seems…

Tiny: Hm… We gotta step it up here.

Dixie: The keys should be easy to find, right? They’ll sparkle, and the moon’s comin’ out.

Tiny: Yeah, but darkness could be our enemy… Hm…

Kooper/Koops -- Recent Friends – 11:31 PM

Kooper: Yeah, yeah, yeaahhh!!! Rainbow Road! Here we come!

Koops: Oh gosh, that place! It’s so high up!

Kooper: We have three methods of travel…

***Kooper: We’re leaving with not only our best position yet, but tons of money saved up!

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas – 11:32 PM
Kat: Rainbow Road! Stellar!

Ana: Heh… Clever…

Kat: Okay, three modes of travel! One of them is finding keys. You think the girls are still here doing that?

Ana: Hmm… Oh! I see them! They’re still there on the beach!

Kat: Aha! Let’s go regroup!

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: There’re the girls!

Tiny: Already? Shoot, then the AquaKoops are out!

Dixie: Heeeyyyy!!!

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Ana: Good to see you!!! Ah…

Kat: What’s happening? Are we looking for keys?

Dixie: I’unno. We kinda agreed to give up once the Koopas left. Whaddaya think?

Kat: Well, to tell the truth, we’re kinda running low on cash.

Ana: Yeah, we don’t want to pay for the Bullet Bill thing, and we don’t wanna fly all the way to Mushroom City.

Tiny: Hm… Well, I guess we could keep looking… Let’s go to the forest!

Ana: Onward!

Kooper/Koops -- Recent Friends
Kooper: What’re we doing? Koops? What?

Koops: Teleporting… Bullets… Heights…

Kooper: Koops! I need your brains, not your emotions!

Koops: … Well, since we have enough money, I’d suggest the *gulp* Passenger Bill.

Kooper: Ya think so?

Koops: Yeah, we should get moving.

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: Anything under there?

Ana: Eeeek!!! Spiders!!! Getimoff getimoff getimoff!!!

Kat: Calm down!

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: Is that something sparkling up there?

Tiny: Ummm… *grunt* Nope, just a coin.

Dixie: Yay. We now have 367 coins as opposed 366.

Iggy/Lemmy -- Brothers – 11:43 PM
Lemmy: Eh heh heh! Rainbow Road it is!

Iggy: Okay, whata we do?

Lemmy: Well, it’s evident that we need to either find a hidden key or fly all the way to Mushroom City. We don’t have enough money for the Passenger Bill.

***Iggy: Me and my bro will crush the competition. We will. Totally. Really. You don’t believe me? I kill you!

Lemmy: I’ve always, always, always wanted to go to Rainbow Road! But dad never took us on the Mario Kart outings!

Iggy: I know! He only went there eight freakin’ times!

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: Oh man, now the Koopa Kids are out. Man, we gotta get moving!

Tiny: I’m looking as hard as I can!

Dixie: I’m tellin’ you, they sure did a number hiding these.

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: Do not give up! We will eventually find it!

Iggy/Lemmy -- Brothers
Lemmy: Hey kids! Havin’ fun?

Ana: Yeah. A metaphorical blast.

Iggy: …

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: I think I see one! I think I see one!

Ana: What?

Tiny: Huh?

Iggy: Go!

Kat: Waah!

All four teams stumble over each other and race down the beach. Iggy, in the lead, trips. They all end up in a gigantic bundle.

All: Owww….

Ana: Hay! Get offa me, ya kooky Koopa!

Iggy: Not until you get offa me!

Lemmy: Oy!

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: I feel…. pain…

Tiny: Much pain…

Iggy/Lemmy -- Brothers
Lemmy: Great job, Ig! You tripped us all and now Katana got the key!

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: Hm… Nope! Another coin!

Dixie: Yay. You now have 103 coins as opposed to 102.

All: *long groan*

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners – 12:02 AM
Koopa: Rainbow Road!

Paratroopa: Ohmigod! Yeaahhoooo!!!

***Paratroopa: My parents took me there when I was just a hatchling! It’s my favoritest place!

Paratroopa: C’mon! Let’s jet! We gotta find a key! Now! NOW!

Koopa: Yes! Let’s!

Iggy/Lemmy -- Brothers

Iggy: Oh, man… oh, man!

***Iggy: We had to find a key! We just HAD to! We couldn’t afford not to… in both senses of the word.

Lemmy: This beach is way too big!

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: I’m starting to lose my patience!

Ana: Wow! You?!

Kat: Unbelievable as it may seem…

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Tiny: …

Dixie: What up?

Tiny: Trying to be psychic… Find… key…

Dixie: Heh, humorous. Stop messin’ around!

Tiny: A’ight, let’s check under the ramp.

Dixie: Ramp? Oh yeah, over by those Sidesteppers…

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas

Kat: Gotta find ittt…

Ana: C’mon!

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Tiny: Why does it fly through the colors of the rainbow?

Dixie: I’unno… Hey! That would make it a perfect hiding place, huh?

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Paratroopa: Nope! I think I checked every treetop!

Koopa: You’re a lifesaver. Too bad you’re not a timesaver. What took ya so long?

Paratroopa: Sorry, I was just looking at that… bird over there…


Everyone Else: *gasp*

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Tiny: I got it! I got it! I got it!

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
They come rushing over.

Kat: Hey, excellent job, you two!

Ana: Good find!

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: Okay you two, hurry up and find one!

Kat: What? You’re not waiting here for us, are you?

Dixie: Just for a little bit, so hurry up!

Kooper/Koops -- Recent Friends
Koops: Here we are!

Kooper: Hey! When’s the next one depart?

Cheeper: Vely soon!

Kooper: Okay! Her mah mony!

Foshi/Xoshi -- Lifelong Friends – 12:20 AM
Foshi: We’re off to…?

Xoshi: Rainbow Road.

Foshi: Ah! Perfect! No more water to make a fool of me.

Xoshi: Sure…

Foshi: So let’s go!

***Foshi: I know we’re powerful! I know we can win this thing! Minor setbacks aside, we’re invincible!

***Xoshi: Sure… Maybe I am…

***Foshi: Aw, hush!

Xoshi: We have to either find a key hidden around here, pay loads of money for a Passenger Bill, or fly to Mushroom City.

Foshi: Well, let’s go find the key!

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: Aw, man. Now the Yoshis have joined the party. We havta hurry!

Ana: You two should go!

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: Don’t worry about us. We’ll leave if someone else finds one.

Kat: Yeah… but where’s the Aquakoops?

Ana: Who?

Kat: Kooper & Koops. Their shells are blue and green…. y’know… aqua?

Ana: Oh… Anyway, I don’t see them…

Tiny: C’mon…

Foshi/Xoshi -- Lifelong Friends
Foshi: All right! One final search and we can leave this goshforsaken beach behind!

Xoshi: Yeah… ugh… Uhh…

Foshi: Huh? Hey, are you all right?

Xoshi: Woah… Yeah, I’m fine… Random head rush…

Foshi: You sure?

Xoshi: Yes! Search!

Foshi: Hmm…

Iggy/Lemmy -- Brothers
Iggy: Ah… This is so fun…

Lemmy: Be quiet, crybaby! We’ll find one! You know we will!

Iggy: This is getting ridiculous!

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Koopa: Here! Let’s check out the beautiful coral!

Paratroopa: I dunno… The others said they already looked there.

Koopa: Well, we’re not getting anywhere fast, so let’s just check it out…

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: Hey! Go look at the starting line! I don’t think we looked there!

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: ‘Kay…

Tiny: Hurry! Hurry!

Ana: Hmm…

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master – 12:35 AM
Snifit: Booster? Booster?! BOOSTER!!!


Snifit: *large sigh* C’mon, ya big lug.

***Snifit: We started off this leg with minimal funds. I think Booster was eating the money, but I dunno. In any case, we knew we would be in big trouble if we couldn’t find a key!


***Snifit: And then there was one less…

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Ana: Yes, yes, yes!!!

Kat: Gosh, Ana! Why don’t you let the whole team o’ racers know!

Ana: Heh, sorry! This is just exciting!

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: Good job, you two! We’re team number one again!

Kat: Let’s jet! The teleporter is inside this building in the forest!

Iggy/Lemmy -- Brothers
Lemmy: Oh, no! They got one!

Iggy: Not gooooddd…

Foshi/Xoshi -- Lifelong Friends
Foshi: Dang!

Xoshi: Mnnn…

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Paratroopa: Ah, shoot!

Koopa: C’mon! We can do this!

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
Booster: D early hyoomans nd NIJAZ hav done!

Snifit: … Wait, what?! Translator please!

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: There it is!

Tiny: You ready for this?!

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

Ana: Let’s do it!

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters (First to depart for Rainbow Road)
Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas (Second to depart for Rainbow Road)

*Abrupt musical pause*
*Quick camera pan*

Kooper/Koops -- Recent Friends
Kooper: Hm? Oh, we’re ready to board!

Koops: *gulp* Okay… You sure this thing’s safe?

Kooper: Sure it is! The captain’s arm works great!

Koops: Wait… arm?! GAAAHHH!

Kooper: Ha ha ha ha! I’m just kiddin’, you knucklehead!

Koops: …

Kooper/Koops -- Recent Friends (Third to depart to Rainbow Road)

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Koopa: Errrrr…. There’s only one left now!

Paratroopa: We’d better find it… or we’ll be shot down!

Koopa: Dead…

Foshi/Xoshi -- Lifelong Friends
Foshi: Ha~~! *Flare* Nope, nothing in this bush…

Xoshi: …

Foshi: Dude, check under that one.

Xoshi: …

Foshi: Dude! DUDE!!! WAKE UP!

Xoshi: Huhsgwhhaaa?

Foshi: Man, what’s up with you today?

Xoshi: I don’t know…. I… can’t focus…

Foshi: Well, step up your game!

Iggy/Lemmy -- Brothers
Iggy: Not good… not good…

Lemmy: This… stinks… This is not fun…

***Iggy: We were definitely in cold lava…

***Lemmy: We knew that if we couldn’t find this key we would be left behind. The flight would be very slow.

Lemmy: We’ve gotta find it.

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
Snifit: Booster, please! I know you like shiny things! We have to find a key! It’s sparkling! So find it!

Booster: You mean this diamond, sapphire, emerald, ruby, gold, diamond, pearl, opal, quartz, gold, silver, topaz, coin, blue coin, red coin, 100 coin, frog coin, glass heart, glass cube, and many, many other priceless gems aren’t sparkly enough?

Snifit: Holy…

Booster: … Cheeseburgers. I have sparkly cheezeburgerz too!

Snifit faints.


Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Paratroopa: I don’t need this! I could probably fly up there myself! I could handle it!

Koopa: Yeah, but could you carry me too?

Paratroopa: Whatever it takes! I’m sick of searching for these keys!

Koopa: Well we have to persevere.

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
Booster: Shingiefoningvoasubnabusdnoasdnubasidnaosifoaifbsoifbaosfbgaosdiuhskjhbk

Snifit: Please shut up! Please shut up! Pleeaasseee!!!

Booster: Shut what? You? Up? ‘Kay! Wheee!

Booster throws Snifit 289,479 feet into the air!

Snifit: Gaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa…

Booster: Heh…

***Booster: Wha?! I’m an exclamation mark! Boing!

Iggy/Lemmy -- Brothers
Iggy: Man… I wish we had E. Gadd’s Finerator Thingeramatornjiamajigortigormajanger.

Lemmy: Me too. Maybe with the Superfactiraghfactor Updaraddonnoragtoryajor.

Iggy: How does he come up with those names anyway?

Lemmy: Beats me.

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

Snifit: Hi…

Booster: Hi!

Snifit: Hi…

Booster: HI!!!

Snifit: SHADDUP!!!

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Paratroopa: C’mon! Let’s fly out to the peninsula. Maybe there’s a key over there.

Koopa: We checked there like 10.000 times!

Paratroopa: C’mon! I have an idea of where one might be!

Koopa: All right…

Foshi/Xoshi -- Lifelong Friends
Xoshi: *gasp*

Foshi: Huh? What is it, Xosh?

Xoshi: I… I dunno… That felt weird…

Foshi: For the one thousandth time, are you okay?

Xoshi: For the one thousandth time, yes I am! I just… felt something.

Foshi: You’re talkin’ in riddles.

Xoshi: The peninsula! Go! Go there now!

Foshi: What? Why?

Xoshi: The key’s there!

Foshi: Huh? How do you know?!

Xoshi: I can… feel it. Go!

Foshi: … All right…

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Koopa: We’re here. What’s so special?

Paratroopa: See that over there? It’s a crab trap. It wasn’t there in the last leg. I just assumed it was someone else’s, but maybe the key’s in there.

Koopa: Hey, good idea!

Foshi/Xoshi -- Lifelong Friends
Xoshi: There it is! The lobster trap!

Foshi: What? Oh… Crab trap… That wasn’t there before. It must be there! C’mon!

Xoshi: I just…. yeah!

Foshi: Shoot! The Koopas are there! Run!

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Paratroopa: Yoshis at 1:00! Run!

Koopa: Ack! Goo!!!

Both teams sprint at high speed towards the trap.

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Paratroopa: Openit Openit!

Kooopa: Yes... yess… Aha! The last key! We got it!!!

Foshi/Xoshi -- Lifelong Friends
Foshi: Noo…

Xoshi: Dang! We’re done! We’re out!

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Koopa: We got it! Excellent!

Paratroopa: Wheeeeeeeeeee!!! Hahahaaaa!!!

Koopa: C’mon! Let’s go!

Foshi/Xoshi -- Lifelong Friends
Both: …

Foshi: Well, you were right… How’d you know?

Xoshi: I dunno… Just a feeling, I guess…

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Paratroopa: We’re off!!!

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners (Fourth to Depart to Rainbow Road)

Foshi/Xoshi -- Lifelong Friends
Xoshi: Well, enough of that. Let’s go. Now. We can catch the next Passenger Bill if we hurry.

Foshi: I hope some teams will be forced to take the flight.

Iggy/Lemmy -- Brothers
Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
All: Graaahhhh!

Lemmy: Man! Now we gotta go fly!

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
Snifit: Oh, well… C’mon, Booster. Plane time!

*Large Explosion*


Foshi/Xoshi -- Lifelong Friends
Foshi: C’mon, man! Let’s jet! Wait… Where’re we going?

Xoshi: This way! Follow me!

Foshi: You sure?

Xoshi: Sure. Follow.

Foshi: Yep! You’re two for two today!

Xoshi: Hey! Dude! Two… tickets for the Bill! Now!

Koopaz: Geez! Rude, much! Well, here ya go…

Xoshi: Yes! We’re on!!!

Foshi: We made it. We’re not in first, but we should be good…

Xoshi: We’ll bounce back! We always do!

Foshi: Onward!

Foshi/Xoshi -- Lifelong Friends (Fifth to depart to Rainbow Road)

Iggy/Lemmy -- Brothers
Iggy: C’mon, Bro. The airport’s right here.

Lemmy: Man, this STINKS!!!

Iggy: Never mind it stinks. We’ll just have to work hard to not be eliminated.

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
Snifit: Man… First it was the Shadow Sirens, then Cackletta & Fawful, then the golfers, then the Delfinos, and now the Koopa Kids. It’s always someone fighting against us for last place. I just hope we can get through it again.

Booster: And hopefully we’ll be… Hi… Cheeseburgerz!

Snifit: Boooster, I…

Booster: WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAT??!?!!??!?!?!?!?! ... What...?  Hi…

Snifit: 0.0 … Um… Your passport?

Booster: O, rite. Here.

Snifit: Ummmm… Ewwwwww… What’s it covered in?

Booster: MAYONAYZZ!!!

Snifit: *eye twitch* Ok, then…

Booster: *Squeak* *Glee Face*

Iggy/Lemmy -- Brothers
Lemmy: Hi, there! Tickets please!

Cheepizor: Here you are! Have a nice trip!

Iggy: Thank you.

***Iggy: Well, we’re kinda far behind… Doesn’t matter, though, we can definitely beat Snifit and… whatever that thing is…

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
Snifit: Booster!!! Spit that passenger out!!!

***Iggy: Any ideas?

***Lemmy: Nope. The spawn of the Underwhere?

***Iggy: Heh…

Iggy: Stop staring, Ig. Let’s go.

Lemmy: A’ight…

The plane takes off.

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master /Iggy/Lemmy -- Brothers (Last to depart for Rainbow Road, 1:06 PM)

The camera shows a clock indicating the above time, then suddenly it reverses extremely fast. Soon it’s pointing to…

12:35 PM
The camera shows the beautiful, sweeping rainbow-flashing roads hovering above a night lit Mushroom City. There are many loops and miscellaneous floating objects.

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: Woah! That was… weird…

Tiny: That felt cool.

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

Ana: Sweet! Lookit this place!!!

Dixie: Woooowwwww…..

Tiny: Tubular….

There is short pause to show us more scenery.

Tiny: Are you girls ready?

Dixie: We’re in first place, so let’s do this!

(Riiiiiiip) (Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiip)

Tiny: Roadblock!

*Sparkly Music*

Phil: A Roadblock is a task that only one person may perform! No person may do more than six Roadblocks on the entire Race! In this Roadblock, teams will get a chance to experience Rainbow Road firsthand. They must hop into a racing kart, and complete seven laps of Rainbow Road. Each lap will take them across a different path: The original tournament, the high 64 tournament, the super tournament, the double dash tournament, the double supers tournament, the international tournament, and finally, the ultra tournament. Once they have completed all seven laps, they will receive their next clue. If teams should fall off the tracks, a team of Lakitus are on hand to rescue them. Teams are permitted to bump carts around, but they may not use weaponry.

Dixie: Okay! Who’s ready, set, go! Aww, yeah! We’re racing!

Tiny: I’d better do it, I haven’t done any yet.

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Ana: You wanna do it?

Kat: Certainly. Wish me luck!

*Time lapse cut*

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Tiny: Niice! Cool blue car! Nice Pink one, Kat!

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: Had to pick my favourite color!

Tiny: Okay, let’s be careful. We should not go around sharp corners at the same time.

Kat: Yeah, and we should keep our distance on hills.

Tiny: Okay. The first track doesn’t have hills anyway.

Kat: Yeah… just Thwomps…

***Kat: We’re big fans of the Mario Kart Grand Prix. We have all seven of them on tape.

***Ana: Yeah, Dixie told me they do too.

***Kat: Yeah, so we know the tracks pretty darn well.

Announcer: 3…. 2…. 1… GO!!!

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Tiny: Yeaahooo!!!

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: Let’s do this… nice little curve here…

Tiny: Hey ho!!!

Kat: Hi! ‘Nother curve!

Tiny: See? This one’s easy…

Kat: So’s the next one, then they get a little tougher…

Tiny: Woah! Watch out! Thwomps!

Kat: Woah! Hey, why do they flash?

Tiny: I’unno… Space Thwomps?

Kat: Haha! I loved that movie! Hey, hold back a bit, I’m gonna go around the u-turn.

Tiny: Good job!

Kat: ‘Nother…

Tiny: Neeoooww…

Kat: Oop! Almost didn’t see that hole!

Tiny: Hello over there!
(Tiny went the other way around the hole.)

Kat: Hahahaa! Heeeeyyy!

Tiny: All right, that one’s done. Now we go through a portal at the finish line and we’ll arrive on the High 64 track!

Kat: Let’s do it!

Ana: Woooo!!! Go Kaaaatt!!!

Dixie: They’re doin’ real good.

Ana: I’m guessing the other teleportees will show up soon.

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Both: Ack!

Koopa: Woah… That was kooky…

Paratroopa: I’ll stick to flying, thank you very much.

Koopa: Hoo… Beautiful, eh?

Paratroopa: Yeah! Nice!

Suddenly a low rumbling is heard. The cameraman has difficulty focusing, but manages to look towards the edge. Without warning, a blue Banzai Bill with a passenger deck covered by glass shows up. Instead of a mean look, it looks calm.

Koops: Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh!!!

Paratroopa: *snicker*

The Passenger Bill lands, and Kooper & Koops step out. Koops looks wobbly.

Kooper/Koops -- Recent Friends
Koops: Oh man… That was freaky….

Kooper: That was EXTREME!!! HAHAAA! I loved it!

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Koopa: C’mon! Let’s jet!


Paratroopa: Roadblock, and I’m doing it. It’s driving, and you’ve done more than me, Mister.

Koopa: Fine…

Kooper/Koops -- Recent Friends
Kooper: Look! There’s the other Koopas! Let’s go!

Koops: Oy…


Kooper: Roadblock. Me.

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: All right, I see a Passenger Bill. Someone’s arrived. Let’s step it up!

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Tiny: *thumbs up* This course is boring!!!

Kat: I know!

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Paratroopa: Wheeee! This is gonna be fun~!

Koopa: Go Para! Do the seven courses, and don’t get overconfident!

Kooper/Koops -- Recent Friends
Kooper: All right! Let’s do zis!

Announcer: 3… 2… 1…GO!!!

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners

Paratroopa: Let’s jet! Yeaaaahhhhhh!!!

Kooper/Koops -- Recent Friends
Kooper: All right… Looks simple enough… Just flat ground with some curves…

Koops: Go Kooper…

Kooper: What?!

Koopa: Never mind…

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Paratroopa: Yeaaahhh!

Paratroopa is really stepping on the gas pedal.

Paratroopa: This is so fuunnnn!!!

He is going so fast that when a flashing Thwomp suddenly falls, he swerves violently to avoid it.

Paratroopa: Waaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh!

He falls off the edge.

Koopa: Oh, no! I told you to be careful…

Kooper/Koops -- Recent Friends
Kooper: Haha! Learn to control yourself! See ya!

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Lakitu: There ya are! Back on track!

Paratroopa: Oy… Okay…

***Paratroopa: Hey, shaddup! That was embarrassing!

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: A’ight, this is the third course!

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Tiny: How’re the others doing?

Kat: We’ll be fine as long as we don’t fall off.

Suddenly there is more rumbling.

Tiny: Oh boy, here comes more…

Foshi/Xoshi -- Lifelong Friends
Foshi: All right! We are there!!!

Xoshi: Mhm… This place… feels… delicious…

Foshi: Err… What?

Xoshi: Um, nothing. Let’s get our clue.


Foshi: Okay, this Roadblock is racing, so I wanna do it. It sounds real fun.

Xoshi: ‘Kay. Do well enough and we might catch up to the lead!

Foshi: Heh… This’ll be a snap.

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: Okay, pressure’s on. Keep it steady.

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Tiny: This track is just like the first one….

Both: Wheeee!!!

Tiny: …except with jumps!

Kooper/Koops -- Recent Friends
Kooper: Cool course. Okay, next!

***Kooper: I was taking my time, enjoying myself…

Kooper: Okay! Looks simple… Just this biiiiiiiig hill!

***Kooper: Had to be careful.

Kooper: All right!

Foshi/Xoshi -- Lifelong Friends
Foshi: Okay! That went by just fine… Here’s the finish line for the first lap. Woah. So, what do I do? Drive into it? It’s a portal thing… Umm…

Foshi: Gah! Huh? Waaaaaah!!!

***Foshi: Oh, I was disoriented after the warp. I lost control and catapulted over the big hill… Be quiet…

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners

Paratroopa: Hahaa! See ya!!!

Kooper: Hey! Get back here! Wait!!!

Paratroopa: Speed it up! There’s no drops here! It’s all walls!

Kooper: Grrrrrr…

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: Ah, this is so fun!

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Tiny: What a great bonding experience. Flying across a rainbow-colored track with no walls and hovering miles above a largely populated city at nighttime. Fun!

Kat: Haha… yeah… Let’s try to step it up a little. Look, we’re about to enter the Double Dash Tourney track. This one’s harder!

Tiny: Okay! I’m ready if you’re ready!

Kat: Take it!

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Paratroopa: Woo! Okay, this looks simple.

Koopa: Woooooo!!!

Paratroopa: Hahaa!! This is fun… Okay, gotta watch out for the jumps…

Kooper/Koops -- Recent Friends
Kooper: Hmmm… I recognize this. It’s from the Super Tourney…

***Kooper: I have seen a few tourneys on TV, mostly the recent ones… I thought this would be easy enough…

Foshi/Xoshi -- Lifelong Friends
Lakitu: Okay! You’re back on track!

Foshi: Ha ha. Okay, time to put the flames at my wheels! Let’s go! Punch it!


Foshi: Ha!!!

Flames fly around the wheels.

Foshi: GO!!!

The kart rockets off, leaving a trail of flames from its wheels!

Foshi: Yeaaaaahhhh! Here we ccoooommmeeee!!!

Xoshi: … Wow…

Ana: Huh?

Xoshi: That was… cool…

Dixie: Yeah… Is that legal?

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Paratroopa: Wheeeeheeeeee!!! Toooootally extreme!!!

***Kooper: That guy was nuts!

Kooper/Koops -- Recent Friends
***Kooper: He kept his foot glued to the gas pedal with no regard for safety!

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Paratroopa: Here’s the jump! This’ll be awesome!



Kooper/Koops -- Recent Friends
Kooper: And there he goes again. What a- woah!- lunatic. (He hit a jump.)

***Kooper: Going fast is not always the best, y’know!

Koopa Aw, dang, did he fly off again?!

Ana: Looks like it.

Koopa: Man! Stop that, Para!

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Tiny: Woah where do we go now? The track just ends!

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: No, no. Remember? It’s a warp tunnel! We touch the bottom and get shot straight up

Tiny: Oh, yeah! Cool!

*Takeoff sound*

Both: Waaaaaaa! Awesomee!!!

Kat: Okay, next?

Tiny: I think it’s the Double Supers Tournament!

Kat: Ah! The DS Tourney!

Tiny: Yup! Let’s go!

Kooper/Koops -- Recent Friends
Kooper: Okay! Double Dash time! This should be cool…

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Paratroopa: Gahh… hhh…

Kooper: Hey, fallie! I know you have wings, but they don’t work when you’re driving, ’know!

Paratroopa: You shut up!!!

Kooper: Heh heh heh…

Paratroopa: I’m still gonna beat you! Every time I get knocked down, I get right back on that horse!

Kooper: You’re riding a horse? No wonder you’re losing! See ya!

Paratroopa: Hey!

Foshi/Xoshi -- Lifelong Friends
Foshi: ‘Kay! I’m done with the Super Tourney track!

Xoshi: There he is! Hey man!

Foshi: Haha! Heyyy!!!

Xoshi: Wooooooo! Aw, man! He’s doing great!

Foshi: Woah! Hairpin! Woah!! Hairpin turn! Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!!!

Xoshi: Oooohh… That wasn’t very professional… Dang…

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: Oh my gooddddd!!! It’s a loop!!!

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Tiny: Hold on! This is gonna be tight!

Both: Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

Tiny: Ohmigawd! Craziness!

Kat: Yep! C’mon! Let’s keep going.

Tiny: This is epic. We’re awesome!

Kooper/Koops -- Recent Friends
Kooper: Yeah! No rails! Now we’re livin’ on the edge!

Paratroopa: *pant, pant*

Kooper: Keep up if you can!

Paratroopa: (flying up the tube) Waaaah! What’sgoignonaagahahaaa!!!

Kooper: Hahahaa!

Kooper: On to the next track!

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters

Tiny: Waaah!

***Tiny: I almost swerved outta control. Kooper came out one end of the portal on the finish line and I was headed into the other side. It felt like we were gonna crash!

Kooper/Koops -- Recent Friends
Kooper: They’re right there? Excellent! We can definitely catch up!

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Paratroopa: Wahooo! Now THIS looks interesting.

***Paratroopa: I’ve done the grand prix before. I entered the Double Dash with Koopa, so I have some experience with this. However, I’m kinda now regretting not entering the Double Supers! Hahahaa!

Paratroopa: Woah! Geez! This track is relentless!

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: Uh, where are we now?

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Tiny: This is the track from the International Tourney!

Kat: Oh yeah… hm… looks simple enough. A few bumps and turns.

Tiny: Well, then, let’s hit it! Pedal to the metal!

Foshi/Xoshi -- Lifelong Friends
Foshi: Hooo… Okay, Double Supers track.

Distant voice: Waaaaaaaaaahhh!

Foshi: Haha! Oh, boy! Paratroopa’s right there on the loop! I can easily catch him! *snaps fingers* Graaaaaaaah!!!

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Paratroopa: That was EPIC!!! Hahaha!!!

Kooper/Koops -- Recent Friends
Kooper: Are you still on my tail? Get lost!

Paratroopa: Hay! I’m gonna pass you one of these da- *gasp* Foshi’s there! He caught up!

Kooper: Aw shoot!

A plane lands.

Iggy/Lemmy -- Brothers
Iggy: All right! We’re here! Now what?

Lemmy: We gotta climb this huge freakin’ path that slowly climbs up!

Iggy: Ugh… This is gonna be a long day.

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
Snifit: Booster? Booster? You know where we’re going, right? Up to the sky where planes fly!

Booster: Wheee!


Booster: Ughh… I’m too tired…

Snifit: You hardly climbed two meters!!!

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: Well that was quick…

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Tiny: Yeah, let’s go! Last track! The Ultra tourney! Let’s do it!

Foshi/Xoshi -- Lifelong Friends
Foshi: I’m comin’ for ya! Hahaaaa!!! Here I come!

Foshi roars up the loop with flames at his back. However, his trajectory is slightly off. The camera hits slow motion as Foshi’s car launches directly, vertically upward.

Ana: Oh my gosh! Look! Look over here! Who is that?!

Koops: Someone flew off the loop!

Dixie: Who is it?!

Koopa: … Oh my…. It’s Foshi! He’s falling!

Xoshi: What?! No!!! He’s gonna land right on top of the loop! Lakitu!!!

Foshi: *slow motion* Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh…

Xoshi: Stop!!! ...! Augh… *clutches forehead*

Foshi: Woah!

The camera is a little shaky, but it appears that a Lakitu snared Foshi at the last second and put him at the end of the loop.

Dixie: Oh, good! A Lakitu caught him…

Xoshi: Is he okay?

Koopa: Yeah, he’s fine. He’s back on track.

Xoshi: Phew…

Ana: …

Koops: You okay, Ana? You look like you’ve seen a ghost- aw, man, I just scared myself…

Ana: … Guys…?

Dixie: What is it?

Ana: There was… no Lakitu…

All: What?!

Ana: I saw it… There was no Lakitu… He just… floated down…

Dixie: Are you sure?

Ana: Positive…

All: …

Foshi: Well, that stunk, but I’m back on track! I’ll catch up!

Kooper/Koops -- Recent Friends
Kooper: Heh! On to the next course! Uh… international? I think…

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Paratroopa: Waaahoooo!!!

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

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Tiny: They sure saved the hardest course for last!!!

Kat: Ohmigawsh! Here comes the waaaaaaaarp staaaaaaaarr!!!

Tiny: Haha! Oh hush! It’s a Sling St(!)aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrr! Wheeeeee!!!

Kat: Hahaa! We’re miles ahead of everyone! Now we’re almost done!

Tiny: Watch out! Huge leap!

Kat: Woooaah! Heh…

Foshi/Xoshi -- Lifelong Friends
Foshi: All right! I’m back in mah groove! Haha! I’m gonna catch up to you guys eventually! Just one… last… corkscrew… And not too fast this time… Heh heh…

***Foshi: I was still kinda shaken… but you didn’t hear that from me. Got it?! Shut that camera off-*

Kooper/Koops -- Recent Friends
Kooper: That was… boring… Couldn’t they have come up with something a little more interesting for the International tourney?

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Paratroopa: Whatever! No one cares! We’re almost done, and look! I see the girls! Ha! A target!

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: Whoops, we’ve got company on our tails... How far until the finish?

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Tiny: This is it! The last curve!

Dixie: Woooo! Go Tiny!

Ana: Great job, Kat!!!

The checkered flag is waved.

Kat: Yeaahh! First to cross the finish line yet again!

Ana: C’mon, Kat! The leg has just begun!


Kat: Grab a Red Star…

Phil: Teams must now search for their next clue, which is floating somewhere amongst the Stars and rainbow roads. Teams must use a Red Star, an artifact that enables flight, to find it.

Kat: Ooh! Sounds exciting! Let’s go!

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Tiny: Thank you, sir! I really enjoyed it!


Tiny: Red Star- ooh!- search for your next clue. Cool. Let’s jet!

Dixie: You did a real good job!

Tiny: *faux  innocence* Did I? Aww, don’t fwatter me!

Dixie: Heh…

Foshi/Xoshi -- Lifelong Friends
Foshi: Flammin’! The final course awaits me! Yeaaaaaaahhhh!

Xoshi: Woah! Hey!!! Final stretch, dude!!! Stay off the loops!

Foshi (distant): Shaddup!

Kooper/Koops -- Recent Friends
Kooper: Woah! Hold on! Wooooo!!! Aww, that was awesomely awesome!

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Paratroopa: Nice jump, dude!

Kooper: Hey! No flapping your wings, you cheater!!!

Iggy/Lemmy -- Brothers
Both are gasping for air.

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
Snifit is gasping for air.

Booster: … Hi…

Iggy: That climb was… monstrous…

Lemmy: Can… you’re… oh…

Snifit: Well, come on, Booster. Task time.

(Riiiiiiiiip) (Riiiiiiiip)

Iggy/Lemmy -- Brothers
Iggy: Roadblock… Ooh! Looks like Mario Kart.

***Lemmy: Me and all the other Koopa Kids have always been extremely jealous of Daddy and BJ being in Mario Kart. He never let us come along, so this was a nice treat…

Lemmy: Mee! Mee!!! Please?!

Iggy: Aww, I wanted to do it. All right, go ahead!

Lemmy: Thanks, Bro!

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
Snifit: Roadblock… hm… racing… Booster, you ride trains. Do you think you could drive a car?

Booster: Hm, I think I could do it. It sounds easy!

Snifit: Well, okay. you- wait… Did you just say something not-stupid?!

Booster: Er… I mean COMMAS ARE FUNNY!!!

Snifit: Whatever. Just don’t fall off because, um, someone’s holding a train hostage…

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: Here’re the Red Stars.

There’s a big line of them.

Kat: Do we just touch one? Like this?


Kat: Woaah!!!

Everything pink on her except her hair turns black, and everything else turns pink.

Kat: Man, do I look chic!!!

Ana: Let me try!

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: Hey, wait up!


Ana mirrors Kat, except with red. Dixie’s shirt turned black but her hat remains pink. Tiny’s shirt turns black and the flower on the front is now teal.

Tiny: Awesome!

Dixie: C’mon! I’ve seen Mario do this! Just jump and stretch out your arms! Like THIS!

Dixie is airborne, trailing red from her hands.

Ana: Cool! Let’s go!

Kooper/Koops -- Recent Friends
Kooper: FINISH! Hahaaa!

Koops: Great job!

Kooper: Hey, Mr. Happy! I couldn’t hear your cheers!

Koops: Sorry….

Kooper: Hahahahaa… Don’t worry, bud! We’re in third!

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Paratroopa: Not if I can help it!

Koopa: Hey Para! How was it?

Paratroopa: Intense!

(Riiiiiiiiiip) (Riiiiiiip)

Kooper: Ooooooooh! Red Stars! Sounds fun!

Koops whines.

Paratroopa: What do I need a Red Star for?! I gots mah wings!

Koopa: *sigh* C’mon!

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: See anything over there?

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Ana: No! There’s so many Star Bits floating around. Not to mention Embers and these… rainbow floating item things…

Tiny: Yeah, you don’t realize how crowded it is up here until you’re flying freely through it.

Dixie: This is fun though!

Foshi/Xoshi -- Lifelong Friends
Foshi: Am I done? Good! My legs are cramping up!

Xoshi: Dude! Are you okay?! You almost fell bad!

Foshi: I’m fine… A Lakitu got me.

Xoshi: Heh heh heh… Yeah…

Foshi: ?


Foshi: Oooooh! Red Stars! C’mon!

Xoshi: Red Stars? How fun!

The music begins to intensify.

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: Is that it? Over there?

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Tiny: Yeah! I think it is!

It’s a clue box… floating in space… awesomely…

Dixie: Good timing! There’s the Aquakoops!

Kooper/Koops -- Recent Friends
Kooper: Don’t worry, dude, there’s no danger, and it’s really fun…

Koops: But… heights…

***Koops: Ever since we arrived I’ve been scared out of my shell. I really don’t like heights…

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Paratroopa: I gotta use this thing, eh? *grumble* Fine.


Koopa: Heh! Lookit me!

Both Koopas now have shining black shells. Para’s wings are now red.

Paratroopa: Gotta admit, I DO look cool!

Koopa: Lessgo!

Kooper/Koops -- Recent Friends
Kooper: C’mon, Koops, hurry up, we’re wasting time…

Iggy/Lemmy -- Brothers
Lemmy: Okay! That first course was easy enough! Booster’s hot on my tail, though…

***Lemmy: We both knew we were maybe an hour or two behind. Things looked grim, but we just had to keep going…

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
Booster: Wahahahaa! I’m Pac-man! Wakakakakakakakakakakakwkakwkawkakaaa!!!

***Snifit: Fighting for elimination was nothing new… we just had to keep going through the leg strongly.

Foshi/Xoshi -- Lifelong Friends
Foshi: Where are we going? Over here?

***Xoshi: Minor pitfalls have held us back in this leg… no pun intended. However, we feel that we can finish first yet again.

Xoshi: Yeah, let’s go!

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: Yes, that is definitely our clue.

Ana: Cooolll…

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: Man… I’m exhausted.

Tiny: Me too…

Tiny: … But the leg is just beginning…….
