The Amazing Race MK III

By Giga Bowser NS

Episode 13
Title: Oh right, you’re frozen.

Phil: Previously on the Amazing Race MK:

Phil (replay): GO!!

Phil: Twelve teams embarked on a spectacular race across the Mushroom Kingdom!

Raz: Come on!

Doopliss: Yo!!

Bombette: Ugghh…

Hammer: Hahaaa!!!

Phil: From the beginning, things were shocking!

All: *Screaming as they’re sucked into Bowser’s mouth*

Phil: Teams faced wild spills…

Monsieur: LOOK OUT!!

Phil: …shocking twists…

All: *shocked faces*

Phil: …raging arguments…




Phil: …and even medical injury.

Boomerang: …broken his arm…

Phil: Nine teams were eliminated!

Phil (replays): Dr. Mario & Nurse Toadstool? Baby Yoshi & Yoshi Jr? Brighton & Twila? Kroop & Dour? Big Boo & Big Blue Boo? Chanterelle & Toadofsky? Flurrie & Doopliss? Hammer Bro. & Boomerang Bro? Bombette & Bruce? I’m sorry to tell you that you’ve been eliminated from the race

Bombette: I don’t want to go…

Phil: Separated Couple Broque Monsieur & Broque Madame began the race in the hopes that they’d rekindle their love for each other. Throughout the race, their efforts have resulted in success.

Monsieur: Bon travail!!

Phil: And despite a few fumbles along the way-

Phil (replay): You’re the last team to arrive…

Phil: -they overcame their obstacles and made it to the final three! Partners and Best Friends Birdo & Mouser may have set the record for most argumentative team, which mostly stemmed from arguments over Birdo’s gender.

Birdo: I’M A GIRL!!!

Phil: Despite their differences and a last place finish on a non-elimination leg, the two remained strong, growing closer as friends in the final few legs-

Phil (replay): Team number two!!

Phil: -and secured a spot in the final three teams. Newlyweds Raz & Raini flew through the race at the front of the pack. Their constant enthusiasm and zeal for success allowed them to win first place on five legs of the race!

Raz: Wooo!!

Phil: Despite their outward friendly appearance, these two had a competitive streak…

Raz: Let’s use it on Mouser.

Phil: …using the U-turn to get themselves ahead. After winning three consecutive legs, the married couple are now among the final three. Tonight: One of these three teams will win the 1 million coin prize… and The Amazing Race!

The opening plays with a new Red “X” over Bombette & Bruce.

Phil: This is Flipside!....*Camera Shift* And this is Flopside! Two towns dimensionally next door, residing in a strange universe with a hidden third dimension. It almost boggles the mind just thinking about it. This was also the eleventh and final Pit Stop… in a race around the MK! Teams arrived here for a mandatory rest period! The final leg is about to begin. Everyone is on edge and preparing to do their best… Raz & Raini… who were the first to arrive at 3:48 PM… will depart at 3:48 AM.


Raz: There is a red pipe in town that will take you back to Flipside…

Phil: Teams must now find this pipe built by famous pipe-designer Welderburg and take it to Flipside. From there, they will have to find their way to the top of the Flipside Tower, and enter this flagged doorway *Shot of the Purple Door* to find their next clue!

Raini: Let’s goooo!!!

Raz: Wooo!!!!

***Raz: This really is it! There’s only three teams left, and one of them’s going to win!

***Raini: We really truly believe that it will be us. We will win this race!

They exit an elevator.

Raz: Over there?

Raini: I don’t see one…

Raz: Wait! I do! It’s over there! It’s red!

Raini: Cool! Let’s go!

They run over to the pipe and enter.

Birdo/Mouser -- Partners/Best Friends

Birdo: I’m so excited!!

Mouser: I know, man! It’s amazing that we were able to come so far!!

Birdo: What did you call me?

Mouser: Sorry, figure of speech!

***Mouser: I think we can definitely win as long as we don’t self-destruct!

Mouser: There’s the pipe!

Birdo: Hurry! Get in it!

Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
Raz: And we’re back here!

Raini: Still looks positively flat!

Raz: Well let’s go! Hey sir! How do we get to the top of the tower?

Resident: Take that elevator up, then go left and find another elevator!

Raz: Thanks!

Broque Monsieur/Broque Madame -- Separated Couple

Mouser: Woo! Here we are!

Birdo: We have to get way up there to the tower!

Mouser: Just look for elevators that go up!

Birdo: There’s one over there! C’mon!


Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
Raz: Wait… I think we missed the elevator.

Raini: Huh?

Raz: This is a dead end. Go back.

Birdo/Mouser -- Partners/Best Friends
Mouser: I think we need one more elevator to go all the way up!

Birdo: How about that big one?

Mouser: Aha!!

Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
Raz: That must be it! The big one!

Raini: Birdo & Mouser!

Birdo/Mouser -- Partners/Best Friends

Mouser: I wonder what’s on the other side?

Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
Raz: We’re not gonna find out here! Let’s go!

The door slowly creeks open.

***Madame: We weren’t going to give up!


Monsieur: Going up!

The screen fades to black and mysterious music plays.

The scene appears… a desolate location underground with dank colors. A purple door appears and opens slowly.

Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
Birdo/Mouser -- Partners/Best Friends
All: *Expressions of awe*
All: Whoooaaaa….

Raz: Craazzyyyy…

Raini: Where are we… Where ARE we?!

Birdo: Wh…

Mouser: I know where we are…

Birdo: Where?

Mouser: We’re in… the Underwhere!

All: *gasp*

Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
***Raz: That threw us for a huge loop… We were… dead… basically!

***Raini: The race takes us to crazy places, that’s for sure!

Raz: Enough gawking! There’s a clue!

Raini: Eww… I don’t like this place… It’s so creepy…

*Riiiiiiiip* *Riiiiiiip*

Raz: Make your way to the River Twygz…

Phil: Teams must now cross the barren Underwhere and find this place: The River Twygz. This ethereal river is filled with the tears of evildoers and contains strange creatures that make swimming in its waters very dangerous. Teams must find their clue… in the depths of the river.

Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
Raini: Oh my gosh eeewwwww…

Raz: C’mon girl! Let’s just get it done!

Raini: Ugghh… Sick…

Birdo/Mouser -- Partners/Best Friends
Birdo: Oh wow…

Mouser: This… is insane…

***Mouser: So we were off… We saw some strange black and grey creatures… a weird orange fountain…

Birdo: *Worried looks*

Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
***Raz: What a dreadful feeling that place gave us

Raini: Uuuugghh….

Raz: Come on! Let’s not dawdle! The Broques are behind us!

Raini: Right!

Birdo/Mouser -- Partners/Best Friends
Mouser: Keep your eyes open… I don’t like the feel of this place…

They enter a door.

Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
Raz: Pipes… Spikes, pits… Gotta be careful here…

Raini: Whoa! Piranha Plants!

Raz: This place is awful!

Birdo/Mouser -- Partners/Best Friends
Mouser: Whoa…

Birdo: Careful! Come on!

Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
Raz: Over here! Don’t fall!

***Raini: We had to flip to the third dimension sometimes because pipes were in our way…

***Raz: Yeah, we were still in the strange flip dimension thing…

Birdo/Mouser -- Partners/Best Friends
Mouser: Can’t go this way… there’s spikes…

Birdo: Over there! Get to the door!

Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
Raz: Let’s go!

Raini: The sooner we’re done in here, the better!

They all enter the door.

All: …


Raz: There’s the river! Look! It’s purple!

Raini: Uuggghhh….

Raz: I guess we dive down!

Raini: This is so ugh!

Birdo/Mouser -- Partners/Best Friends
Birdo: …

Mouser: C’mon! The sooner we get it done, the sooner we’ll be gone!

Birdo: Uugghhh…

The purple door opens.
Broque Monsieur/Broque Madame -- Separated Couple
Both: Whooaa…

Monsieur: Where are we?

Madame: We’re… somewhere bad…

Monsieur: Oh mon dieu… Let’s ‘urry! I don’t like zis place!


Madame: Swim in… where?

Monsieur: Zee River Twygz… Doesn’t sound pleasant. C’mon!

Madame: I just ‘ope we can catch up… I also ‘ope we don’t spend too much time in zis place!

*Splash* *Splash*
Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
***Raz: So we jumped into that putrid purple water stuff… it felt gross…

***Raini: There were like these skeleton hand things in the water! Eewww!!

They swim around searching.

Birdo/Mouser -- Partners/Best Friends
***Birdo: It was kinda hard to see… hard to move…

***Mouser: Those skeleton things looked like they were trying to grab us…

Birdo carefully swims around an Underhand.

***Birdo: Creepy…

Broque Monsieur/Broque Madame -- Separated Couple
Monsieur: Zis way! Zrough zee door!

Madame: I’m following you!

Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
Raz quickly comes up for breath, then dives down again.

***Raz: We knew we had to find it quickly, because the Broques were somewhere behind us!

***Raini: I think I was too focused on the skeletons…

Raz: ??

***Raz: Luckily, I spotted it!

Raz swims over to some clues attached to the wall.

Birdo/Mouser -- Partners/Best Friends
***Birdo: I saw him grab it… just barely.

Birdo also swims over and grabs a clue. Both teams surface.

Mouser: C’mon! Let’s get out of this water!

Broque Monsieur/Broque Madame -- Separated Couple
Monsieur: Watch out for zee spikes!

Madame: Uh oh… We can’t get past ‘ere!

Monsieur: We ‘ave to flip… Remember, we can flip in zis place!

Madame: Oh right! Look! We’re almost to zee door!

Monsieur: Oui! Come on! Let’s catch up!

Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
Raz: Bleaughh… That was disgusting!

*Riiiiiiiiiiiip* *Riiiiiiiip*
Birdo/Mouser -- Partners/Best Friends
Mouser: Make your way to the Underwhere Road…

Phil: Teams must now continue through this barren land to find Queen Jaydes’s Palace. There, they will find a door leading to the dark and dangerous Underwhere Road. It is in this place that they will find their next clue!

Birdo: Let’s go! I see the palace over there!

Mouser: Cool!

Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
Raz: Stay ahead! Don’t let ‘em pass!

Raini: I know!

Birdo/Mouser -- Partners/Best Friends
Both: …

Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
Raz: This place is really creepy… but it’s also kinda neat…

Birdo/Mouser -- Partners/Best Friends
Birdo: This must be the door… Come in here, everyone!


Mouser: Whoaaa… It’s DARK in here…

Birdo: I can hardly see…

Mouser: Where’s the clue?

Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
Raz: Right here!


Raz: Detour!

Phil: In this Detour, teams will have to choose one of two ways to ascend this long, dark passageway. They may choose Hard Way Up or Quick Way Up. In Hard Way Up, teams will traverse these platforms, maneuvering through the darkness and avoiding enemies to reach the top. It’s a difficult journey, but teams with perseverance will succeed. In Quick Way Up, teams may take this elevator to reach the top. However, once at the summit, teams will encounter Dorguy. He will then present the teams with a difficult mental quiz. If they can succeed at this quiz, they will receive their next clue!

Raz: Hmm…

Raini: Raz, I REALLY don’t like this place… It’s so dark… Let’s just go do the quiz!

Raz: I suppose so. We’re smart, right?

Raini: Yeah! Nothing we can’t handle!

Raz: All right! We choose Quick Way Up!

Birdo/Mouser -- Partners/Best Friends
Mouser: We can handle the Hard Way Up, right?

Birdo: Yeah! Let’s do it!

Mouser: Woo!!

Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
They step over to a nearby elevator.

Raz: Up we go! *Presses a button*


Raini: Oh my gosh… Look at those platforms! They might fall off in the dark!

Birdo/Mouser -- Partners/Best Friends
Mouser: Okay! It’s really dark, so watch your step!

Birdo: I got it!

***Mouser: We just began hopping up the platforms… It wasn’t anything particularly special…

Mouser: Woo!! All right!

Birdo: Oh wow… Where’s the edges? Careful where you jump!

Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
Raz: Okay… Where’s this door person?

Raini: It’s brighter up here…

Dorguy: YO!

Both: AHH!

Dorguy: Oops… Sorry, didn’t mean to scare you. Anyway, I AM DORGUY! Prepare to take my AWESOME quiz!

Both: …

Dorguy: Please turn your attention to this screen!

***Raz: The quiz involved moving shapes, and colors… We had to memorize some stuff… It was very interesting…

Dorguy: Which shape appeared most often?

Raz: The square, right?

Raini: Yup! Square!!

***Raz: It wasn’t too difficult

Raz: Okay!

Birdo/Mouser -- Partners/Best Friends
Birdo: Ahhh!!

Mouser: What? What?

Birdo: Look out! Some kinda skeleton thing!

Mouser: Whoa! Hey! Watch it, buddy!

Skellobit: Rawr!

Birdo: Ugh… He almost knocked me off…

Phil: Teams must now climb up this passageway to reach Dorguy the Second. Once they have reached him, he will reveal to teams their next challenge.

Raz: Okay! Let’s go!

Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
Raz: Exit this stadium and travel to the Golf Courts on Peach’s Castle Grounds!

Phil: Teams must now travel through Sports Land and find the most expansive golf course on Peach’s Castle Grounds! Once there, they will hop in a golf cart and, following the clues on the steering wheel, must travel to the seventh hole. This is where they will find their next clue. However, the eighth hole is marked with a red & yellow flag, despite there being no clue located there. So teams will have to trust their instincts.

Raz: Okay!! We gotta go to the golf courses! Where’s the exit?

Raini: Over there!

Crowd: WOOO!!!

Raz: Haha, thanks everyone!

Birdo/Mouser -- Partners/Best Friends

Raini: Ugh… The Picross…

Raz: Right. Which leg was that?

Raini: Well, Leg 4 was when the Bros. came in last, wasn’t it?

Raz: Yeah, and then two legs later we won the Fast Forward.

Birdo: Seven? Wasn’t it earlier than that?

Mouser: Nope, I’m sure! Let’s go!


Mouser: Careful! This is a golf cart, not a race car!

Birdo: Yeah, yeah!

Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds

Raz: Okay, here… This is hole #9, we’re on the right track!

Raini: Start looking for flags!

Raz: Right… To the seventh hole.

Birdo/Mouser -- Partners/Best Friends
Birdo: Once we get over there, look for flags!

Raz: All right…

***Raz: I was so confused. I wasn’t sure whether to trust my memory or the flag

***Raini: I immediately went for the flag. That’s what flags are for, they’re to guide you to the correct location!

They drive to the 8th hole.

Birdo/Mouser -- Partners/Best Friends

Birdo: Okay, lessee… Which hole is that?

Raini: See? They stopped here too, now c’mon! This clue is hiding from us!

Raz: R’ini, we’ve looked almost everywhere on this hole… there’s nothing!

Raini: Check the bunkers again! It might be under the sand!

Raz: …

Birdo/Mouser -- Partners/Best Friends
Mouser: There’s Raz over there…

Birdo: Really? What’s he doing?

Mouser: Looks like they’re looking for the clue

Birdo: Still?!

Mouser: … Something’s not right here, Birdo. Give me the clue we got at the stadium.

Raz: Let’s go look at the seventh hole!

Raini: No! Why would there be a flag here if there’s no clue here?!

Raz: Because… I don’t know! I’m just sure it’s at the seventh!

Birdo/Mouser -- Partners/Best Friends
Birdo: You’re positive that Picross was on the seventh?

Broque Monsieur/Broque Madame -- Separated Couple
They drive past hole #10.

Birdo/Mouser -- Partners/Best Friends
Mouser: Yeah. 1 was Bowser, 2 was Airship, 3 was Beanbean, 4 was Diamond, 5 was Rainbow, 6 was Tiny-Huge, and 7 was Mario Land.

Birdo: You’re right… but then why is there a flag here?

Mouser: I don’t know, but look… they obviously haven’t found anything.

Broque Monsieur/Broque Madame -- Separated Couple
They drive past hole #9.

Birdo/Mouser -- Partners/Best Friends
Birdo: So what do you want to do?

Mouser: I really think we should go to the seventh one… This clearly isn’t right. I think it’s a trap.

Broque Monsieur/Broque Madame -- Separated Couple
They drive past hole #8.

Raini: Wh…what?

Raz: Come on, Raini! I’m serious, we need to leave!

Raini: Yeah… Okay, you’re right! Come on!

Raz: We’re in last now!

***Raz: It hurt me physically to say that… We had spent the whole leg in first place, and now we had fallen to last place.

***Raini: I felt awful… I felt like I had cost us the whole race…

They get in the golf cart.

Raz: It’s okay… We still have a Roadblock!

Birdo/Mouser -- Partners/Best Friends
Mouser: They still behind us?

Birdo: Yup… Oh! There’s the seventh hole!

Mouser: There’s no race flag on the pin… oh, but there’s the clue… those sneaky idiots…

*Warp Pipe Sound*
Birdo/Mouser -- Partners/Best Friends
Mouser: Whoa! Hello!

Birdo: We’re in the Peach Dome!!


Crowd: *Cheering*

Birdo: Another wonderful crowd!

Mouser: Clue! Come on!


Mouser: Roadblock!!!!

Phil: A Roadblock is a task that only one person may perform, and no one can do more than six on the entire race! In this final Roadblock, teams will put their memories and their intelligence to the test! Set up in this massive Tennis Dome are three workstations. At each station there is a large chest full of knickknacks. Teams must search through these objects to find one object for each of the 11 Roadblocks teams have faced so far, as well as an object from the Nove Tundra, which did not have a Roadblock. Each of these objects has a number attached to it. Once teams have gathered their 12 items, they must take these items up to a group of spectators. Then, after returning to the tennis court below, the audience will unfold these squares, revealing pictures of teams from the race. If team members have chosen the correct 12 objects, then the crowd will be showing which teams came in last on each of the 11 legs and the midpoint of the double leg. It is up to teams to decide if this order is correct. If it is, they will receive their next clue. If not, they will receive a time penalty and must then start over.

Birdo: The last Roadblock? Are you ready?

Mouser: I was born ready!

He reads the clue, then runs off.

*Warp Pipe Sound*
Broque Monsieur/Broque Madame -- Separated Couple
Monsieur: Whooaa!! Anozer cheering crowd!
