The Amazing Race MK III

By Giga Bowser NS

Episode 10
Title: You have bested me my good sir.

Phil: Previously on The Amazing Race MK!

Phil: 6 teams continued to race through the outer reaches of space. After discovering that the leg was not yet over, Hammer Bro & Boomerang Bro decided to take the second Fast Forward. Flurrie & Doopliss also attempted to secure this Fast Forward, but ended up losing to the Bros. Some teams were cool and calm during the Detour… while others blew up.


Bruce: …

Phil: After a fast-paced Roadblock, teams checked in to the Pit Stop. In the end, it was a race to the finish between Flurrie & Doopliss and Birdo & Mouser. A fall towards the end of the Roadblock gave the Partners and Best Friends the push they needed to edge out the Actress and Actor!

Phil (replay): I’m sorry to tell you that you’ve been eliminated from the race…

Phil: However, the troubles of the race were still not over…


***Boomerang: Hammer Bro. had broken his arm…

Phil: … Five teams temain! Who will be eliminated… next?

The opening plays with a new Red “X” over Flurrie & Doopliss.

Phil: This is the Rolling Coaster Galaxy! One of many galaxies that inhabit the outer reaches of space, this colorful course was the eighth Pit Stop… in a race around the MK!

Hammer Bro./Boomerang Bro. -- Partners
Both: …

Hammer: *groan*

*Shot of the X-ray image*

Hammer: Lookit that, eh?

Boomerang: Ouch…

***Boomerang: So, as you can imagine, things didn’t look good…

Medic Just keep still… There we go…

***Hammer: They put my arm in a cast and sling… So now I look like this!

*Shot of Hammer Bro. with his arm in a sling*

Boomerang: So you okay?

Hammer: Yeah, I’m fine now… Just have a broken arm… that’s all

Boomerang: … Now what?

Hammer: …

They walk onto the mat, where Phil is standing alone.

Phil: So, Hammer Bro. & Boomerang Bro.? It looks like you had an accident.

Hammer: Yeeaahhh…

Boomerang: Broken arm… that’s not good…

Phil: Well, the choice is up to you. You can continue in the race if you desire.

Both: …

Hammer: We’ll keep going.

Boomerang: Are you sure, Bro? What if you have to do something dangerous? You could really hurt yourself…

Hammer: I know… but we have to try, right? We can’t just give up…

Boomerang: But…

Hammer: I promise I’ll take care of myself!

Boomerang: ….

Phil: The 5 teams waiting here have no idea what’s in store for them… Will Hammer Bro. & Boomerang Bro. be able to overcome this obstacle? Will Birdo & Mouser’s lack of fighting continue? Will Raz & Raini continue to avoid major mistakes? Hammer Bro. & Boomerang Bro., who were the first to arrive… will depart… at 12:51 PM.


Boomerang: Okay, dude… ”Find the nearby Launch Star and launch yourselves to the Slipsand Galaxy.”

Phil: Teams must now take this Launch Star and travel to the Slipsand Galaxy! This expansive galaxy covered in sand, stone, and ancient structures is one of the most well-known Galaxies in space. When teams land, they must make their way through quick-moving sand on this long planet to reach their next clue.

Hammer: Haha, cool! Slipsand, eh? I guess it’s like a desert…

Boomerang: Yeah… Well, let’s get going then! We want to try not to fall behind!

They walk to the Launch Star.

Boomerang: Okay, how we gonna do this?

***Boomerang: The very first thing we had to do on the leg… and we had trouble doing it.

Hammer: Yeah, I can’t twist myself…

Boomerang: Well, here. Get in, and I’ll twist you.

Hammer: Whoa… Okay, I’m floating in it…

Boomerang: Hold on with your good hand!

Hammer: Yup…

***Boomerang: I had to run around in circles, spinning Hammer Bro. inside of the star… I got dizzy, but eventually he launched.

Hammer: Wooo!!!

Boomerang: @_@ Whooaaaa……

He shakes his head, also hops in, and launches.…

*Shots of the Galaxy while Arabic-style music plays*

Both: Whoaaaa!!!


Hammer: Ouch…

Boomerang: Be careful… Don’t fall over when you land…

Hammer: Yeah… Now where’s the clue?

Boomerang: Over there!

*Shot of the long, tubular planet with sand moving quite quickly*

Hammer: Oh wow…

Boomerang: Can you handle it?

Hammer: Sure I can! Easy!

***Hammer: I hopped in and started plowing through the sand… I kept my head above the top, and before long, I was at the end!

Boomerang: Nice job! Here I come!

Hammer: Yeah! There you go! Just keep your head up!

Boomerang: Oogh… Yeah….

Hammer: C’mon!

Boomerang: Careful, Bro! Almost there!

Hammer: I got it! No worries!

Boomerang: Here! Give me your hand!

Hammer: All right! That was pretty easy!

Boomerang: Yeah… Here’s the clue


Hammer: Climb up the sand waterfall!

Phil: Teams must now take this sling star to this platform at the bottom of this monstrous sand waterfall. Then, they must hop up the blocks that are coming down it to make their way to the top. They will then find their next clue…

Hammer: …

Boomerang: Well…

Hammer: Come on…

Boomerang: Dude?

Hammer: COME ON! Let’s get it done!

Boomerang: …

They hop into the sling star.

Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds - 1:24 PM
Raz: Slipsand Galaxy!

Raini: Oh boy! We’re still in space, eh?

Raz: Haha, yeah! Let’s go!

***Raz: So during the last Pit Stop, Hammer Bro. broke his arm…

***Raini: Yeah… That’s just the kind of advantage we need to get them eliminated.

***Raz: But, at the same time, we don’t want him to really get hurt…

Raz: I LOVE taking these things!

Raini: Well, c’mon! Let’s go!

They launch.

Hammer Bro./Boomerang Bro. -- Partners
Hammer: Whoa… Look at that!

Boomerang: Our world is amazing, isn’t it?

Hammer: Yeah…

***Hammer: I wasn’t too worried about the sand waterfall. It was just jumping. It didn’t use my arms.

***Boomerang: I was still worried.

***Hammer: Man, you were always worried about me!

Hammer: *jumps up* Ha! Easy!

Boomerang: But hurry! They’re falling pretty quickly!

Hammer: Whoaa… It’s harder to balance with one arm! Yah!

Boomerang: Careful!

Hammer: I am, dude! Chill!

***Hammer: I was confident that we’d be able to make it to the top…

Bombette/Bruce -- Newly Dating - 1:41 PM
Bombette: Oh boy!! More space travel!!

Bruce: Yeah, it should be exciting! Come on!

***Bombette: I think we’re doing well! We may not have arms, but we’re tough!

Hammer: >.<

Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
Raz: Whoa… Sandy…

Boomerang: *worried look*

Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
Raz: Well come on!

Raini: Um… Is this safe? I don’t want to sink in this sand…

Raz: Sure! Just let the sand carry you forward, and try to keep your head up…

Raini: Oh… okay…

They hop in.

Hammer Bro./Boomerang Bro. -- Partners
Boomerang: What’s up?

Hammer: I see a team at the beginning.

Boomerang: Don’t worry about it…

Hammer: We’re almost there!

Birdo/Mouser -- Partners/Best Friends
Mouser: Launch time!

Birdo: Slipsand Galaxy?

Mouser: Yeah! C’mon!

Birdo: You ready?

***Mouser: We might be in last place… but we won’t give up!

Raz: Here! Give me your hand! I got ya!


Raz: Whoa… We gotta get up a waterfall!

Raini: Oh my gosh…

Hammer Bro./Boomerang Bro. -- Partners
Boomerang: Roadblock…

Hammer: “Who likes amusement parks?”

Phil: A Roadblock is a task that only one person may perform, and no person may do more than 6 on the entire race! In this Roadblock, one team member must ride down this extremely long, sandy slide and reach the bottom without falling off. The slide continually gets thinner until it is only about one meter wide at the bottom. Also, teams will have to be aware of these large, rolling stones that will follow them down the slide. Once they reach the bottom and rejoin their partner, they will receive their next clue.

Boomerang: Should I do it?

Hammer: Well, I have to do SOME… but amusement parks? Yeah, you should do it.

Boomerang: All right! *opens* Aww, you should’ve done it! Haha! It looks fun!

Hammer: It doesn’t matter.

Boomerang: Okay! See you at the bottom!

Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
Raini: How are we gonna climb up here?

Raz: Quickly! We just can’t stop! Keep jumping! Like a bouncy ball!

Raini: Haha! Okay!

They begin to hop up.

Raz: Good?

Raini: Augh! This is scary!

Raz: Just don’t look down!

Raini: Whooaaa…

Bombette/Bruce -- Newly Dating
Bruce: Oh my gosh…

Bombette: Come on! Just jump through the sand!

Bruce: But we’re gonna sink!

Bombette: Come on! Let’s go!

***Bruce: That sand was kinda crazy… I could feel it pulling me down…

Bombette: Woo!!

***Bruce: But Bombette was having the time of her life! Haha!

Bruce: Be careful!

Bombette: Just come on!

Broque Monsieur/Broque Madame -- Separated Couple

Monsieur: Oh look! Zee Bombs!

***Monsieur: We were not so sure about pushing zrough zee sand… We are not zee smallest…

Madame: Oh… okay…

They hop into the sand.

Hammer Bro./Boomerang Bro. -- Partners
Boomerang: More sliding! Haha… I just did this!

***Boomerang: The sand was sliding down and I had to, like, ride on top of it! It looked really fun!

Boomerang: Okay! WOOOO!!!

***Boomerang: It was even faster than the Tall Trunk Slide!


***Boomerang: My eyes had tears, it was so fast!

Boomerang: Woo!

Bombette/Bruce -- Newly Dating
Bombette: Ooh! We can jump up blocks!

Bruce: Yeah! Come on!

Broque Monsieur/Broque Madame -- Separated Couple
Monsieur: Almost zere! Don’t sink!

Madame: Ugh… Stupid sand… I got it!


Monsieur: Okay! Let’s do some waterfall climbing!

Madame: Oh mon dieu! (Oh my gosh!)

Hammer Bro./Boomerang Bro. -- Partners
Boomerang: What’s that?!


Boomerang looks back.

***Boomerang: All of sudden there were these big rock things rolling at me!

Boomerang: YAAAHHH!!

***Boomerang: So I had to shift myself on the slide to avoid them… and there’s no edge on that slide! I could’ve easily fallen off!

Birdo/Mouser -- Partners/Best Friends
Mouser: Okay… Let’s go!

Birdo: I have to get in this sand? Really? It doesn’t look safe!

Mouser: Come on! Don’t worry! You’ll be fine!

Birdo: Yeah, but I have a big mouth… The sand can get in easier…

Mouser: *sigh* You’ll be fine… Just come on.

Birdo: Don’t pressure me!

Mouser: *rolls eyes, hops in* See you on the other side.

Birdo: …

Hammer Bro./Boomerang Bro. -- Partners
Boomerang: I can see the bottom! Whoa!! It’s so skinny! Watch out!!

Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
Raz: Come on, hon! We’re almost at the top!

Raini: This is easy… but tiring…

Raz: We can’t rest though! Come on!

Bombette/Bruce -- Newly Dating
Bombette: You ready?

Bruce: Yup!

They begin hopping up.

***Bruce: Since we don’t have arms, we’re very skilled at jumping to places. It’s necessary since we can’t really climb…

Bruce: Great job, Bombette!

Bombette: This is so awesome!

Broque Monsieur/Broque Madame -- Separated Couple
Madame: Zere zey go! Let’s catch zem!

Monsieur: Okay…

They begin jumping up.

Monsieur: Oof… Hup…

***Monsieur: We were a little slower zan zee ozer teams, but at least we were making progress up zee waterfall!

Monsieur: Bon! (Good!)

Hammer Bro./Boomerang Bro. -- Partners
Boomerang: Gah! It’s barely wide enough for me!

Hammer: Hey Bro!

Boomerang: Waah!! I’m gonna fall!

Hammer: Careful!

Boomerang: Holy cow! It’s like sliding down a piece of string!

***Boomerang: It was a pretty close call at the end there, but I made it!

Boomerang: Whoaa… That was nuts!

Hammer: Great job!


Boomerang: Okay, Detour…

Phil: A Detour is a choice between two tasks, each with its own pros and cons! In this Detour, teams must complete one of two tasks that Mario needed to overcome to retrieve a Power Star! They will choose between Surf and Sand. In Surf, teams will take this launch star to this long planet filled with quicksand and cacti. Teams will ride on top of this strange creature known as a Sand Manta as it ferries them across the quicksand. However, the cacti and these Magikoopas will be able to break off parts of the sand manta temporarily, so teams will have to be extremely careful not to fall in. In Sand, teams will take this other launch star to this circular planet, where they will have to fight against Squizzard. Using Fire Flowers and avoiding Squizzard’s attacks, teams must subdue him so that they may grab a flag from his backside. Once successful, they’ll receive their next clue.

Boomerang: Surf or Sand?

Hammer: Well, normally I’d go kick that Squizzard’s behind, but I guess we’re gonna have to do Surf.

Boomerang: No problem! Let’s go!

Hammer: Okay… Another launch star…

***Boomerang: So we did the whole shtick again, and I got dizzy again… but at least we were still in first!

Boomerang: Oog… Okay, here we go!


Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
Raz: Roadblock!

Raini: Ooh! It sounds fun! I’ll do it!

He helps her up.

Hammer: Haha! Look at these things!

Boomerang: Are they alive?

Hammer: No, I don’t think so…

Boomerang: Heh… Well come on!

***Boomerang: So we got on the sand manta thing and it started moving!

Hammer: Whoaa… Cool!! Heh heh…

Boomerang: Watch out for that cactus!

Hammer: Waah!

***Boomerang: And then this cactus got in our way, and it broke off some of the blocks!

Hammer: Yeah… I’m fine…

***Hammer: It was kinda hard to keep my balance. The platform kept changing and getting skinnier! It was crazy!

Hammer: Whoawhoawhoa!!!

Bombette/Bruce -- Newly Dating
Bruce: Careful, hon!

Bombette: This is no problem! I’m just hopping to safe spots!

Bruce: We don’t wanna fall… Then the Broques will pass us…

Broque Monsieur/Broque Madame -- Separated Couple
Both: …

Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
Raz: Okay! There’s the clue! Get off this thing before we fall!

Raini: Woooo!! Nice job! That was kinda fun!


Raz: “Launch yourselves to the large floating pyramid!”

Phil: Teams must now take a nearby Launch Star and fly across the Galaxy to this large, floating pyramid. When they land, they will find their next clue.

Raz: Oh wow! U-Turn Ahead!

Phil: This is the second of only two U-Turns on the race. Teams may use the power of the U-Turn to slow down a team behind them by forcing them to backtrack and complete the other side of the Detour they didn’t previously complete.

Raz: Come on, let’s go!

Raini: What, are we gonna use it?

Raz: I dunno! But let’s get there first!

They launch.

Hammer Bro./Boomerang Bro. -- Partners
Hammer: Okay! Chain Chomp time!

Boomerang: Whooaaa… Watch it, bud!

Hammer: I’m gonna jump over there! Watch out!

Boomerang: You’re good… just don’t stop! It keeps moving!

Monsieur: Bon! Keep your balance!

*Landing sound*
Birdo/Mouser -- Partners/Best Friends
Birdo: Well here we are! I see two… three mantas out there!

Mouser: That means we’re either in fourth or last…

Birdo: Probably last…

Mouser: Don’t get discouraged! Come on!

Birdo: Right…

Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
Both: Wooo!!

Raz: That’s a big pyramid!!!

They land at the bottom.

Raz: Wow, that’s big!

Raini: There’s the U-Turn!

Raz: We’re in first place! We passed the Bros, and we saw everyone else behind us…

Raini: I think we should use it. We need all the help we can get!

Phil steps down to where Hammer Bro. & Boomerang Bro. are.

Phil: Hammer Bro. & Boomerang Bro.?

Boomerang: *laying down* Ugh… Hi Phil…

Phil: Broken arm didn’t help much, did it?

Hammer: No…

Phil: Well, I’m sorry to tell you that you’re the last team to arrive.

Hammer: Yeah…

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

Hammer: Never expected it… Thought we would go all the way to the end…

Boomerang: Ooogg… I’m exhausted…

Hammer: I had the nagging feeling that we weren’t gonna be able to continue. It’s too hard to race with a broken arm… He had to really pull me around.

Boomerang: Blugh…

Hammer: But he was awesome. He could’ve just given up, but he persevered until he just couldn’t anymore! I couldn’t ask for more than that!

***Hammer: I’m really sad to be leaving the race… But we had a lot of fun.

***Boomerang: It was a blast. Much more fun than working for Bowser, heh…

***Hammer: I’ll always be sad that we didn’t make it to the end… but it was fun!
