The Amazing Race MK III

By Giga Bowser NS

Episode 4
Title: I don’t think the city’s made out of diamonds

Phil: Previously on: The Amazing Race MK!

Phil: 9 teams began their journey from the Mushroom Kingdom Airport. Their destination was the nearby Beanbean Kingdom. However, before the leg could even begin, one team encountered problems.

***Dour: Someone had lost our race Credit Card that we’re supposed to use to buy airline tickets.

Phil: In the sprawling fields of the Beanbean Kingdom, another team found they’d made a huge flaw.

Hammer: How much in Mushroom Coins?

Cabbie: We don’t take Mushroom Coins.

Phil: As the race moved from grass to sand, teams found a quick Detour that ended up leaving them scratching their heads.

Big Boo: Wait…

Gritty: *Arabic*

Phil: In the end, Hammer Bro. & Boomerang Bro. didn’t fall as far behind as they’d expected. However, they found they had a more pressing problem.

Boomerang: We’re pretty close to 0…

Phil: … and Kroop & Dour, unable to secure a flight on the same day as the others, were eliminated. Now… 8 teams remain… who will be eliminated… next?

The opening plays with a new Red “X” over Kroop & Dour.

Phil: This is Teehee Desert! Under the sweltering heat, few inhabitants can survive. And towering above this desolate wasteland is Little Fungitown, where emigrants from the Mushroom Kingdom often live. This elevator connects the two locations, and was also the third Pit Stop… in The Amazing Race. Teams arrived here for a mandatory rest period that allows them to eat, sleep, and mingle with the other teams. Will Hammer Bro. and Boomerang Bro., who are slowly running out of money, manage to survive? Or… will they be the next team to be eliminated? Raz & Raini… who were the first to arrive at 6:35 PM… will depart… at 6:35 AM.


Raz: Fly to Diamond City! Wow!

Phil: Teams must now fly more than 1,700 miles to the coastal Diamond City. When they land, teams must make their way to this dock, where they must catch a ferry to Crygor Island, where their next clue is waiting for them.

Raz: Wow, Diamond City!

Raini: Isn’t that where WarioWare is produced?

Raz: Yeah!

Raini: We gotta get down to the airport, right now. Taxi!


Broque Monsieur/Broque Madame -- Separated Couple - 6:36 AM

Monsieur: Diamond Ville! Very good! (Diamond City!)

Madame: We are right behind zee Raz & Raini…

***Monsieur: We are doing zee front running right now.

***Madame: We ‘ave not gotten zee first place yet, but eet ees
within our grasp.

Monsieur: Taxi!

*Fast Forward of taxis driving away*

Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
Raz: So, we’re on our way?

Raini: On our way!

Bombette/Bruce -- Newly Dating - 6:44 AM

Bombette: Okay! Let’s go!

Bruce: We’d better hurry! The Bros. are right behind us!

Bombette: Don’t worry! We’ll beat them once again!

***Bombette: We realize that this race is not all about being fast. It’s about being smart, and it’s about being lucky. Those are all factors.

Bombette: Hopefully we’ll be on the first flight…

Bruce: Yeah…

Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
Raz: Here we are! Where’s ticketing?

Raini: Hi! We need a flight to Diamond City…

Troopea: Our first flight is at 7:15 AM.

Raz: And that’s the first?

Raini: Sounds good, let’s buy ‘em!

Raz: Cool!

Broque Monsieur/Broque Madame -- Separated Couple
Monsieur: Us too!

Raz: Oh, hello! You scared me.

Monsieur: Sorry!

Madame: Merci! Zee first flight ticket!

Monsieur: Bon! (Good!)

Hammer Bro./Boomerang Bro. -- Partners - 6:46 AM

Hammer: Fly to Diamond City… “You have 40 coins for this leg of the race.”

Boomerang: Hmm…

***Hammer: During the last leg we had a lot of trouble with our Roadblock, and we wasted SO much money on cabs. Now, we have just about 45 coins in total…

Hammer: So whaddaya wanna do? We could take a cab to the airport and make sure we’re on the first flight, or we could save the money and use it once we land in Diamond City…

Boomerang: I… umm, hmm…

***Hammer: We decided to save our money, and that way, once we were in Diamond City, we could use our extra resources to get further ahead.

Hammer: Well, let’s go!

***Hammer: So we started… walking to the airport…

Flurrie/Doopliss -- Actress/Actor - 6:52
Flurrie: Ooh! Diamond City! Sounds like my kinda town!

Doopliss: Yeah, I don’t think the city’s made out of diamonds… but, whatever…

***Flurrie: We’re doing swell, and we’re getting along.

***Doopliss: I feel, however, that we could be doing much better.

Doopliss: C’mon!

Flurrie: I’m coming!

Bombette/Bruce -- Newly Dating
Bombette: Did we make it?

Bruce: Look!

Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
Raz: C’mon! If you hurry, you’ll make it!

Bruce: C’mon, honey! We can make it!

Bombette: Yeaahaaaa!

Beanie: Okay, you’re on the flight!

Bombette: Great!

Bruce: I wonder if the Bros. will make it.

Flurrie/Doopliss -- Actress/Actor
Doopliss: Hay! Can ya go faster? We’re trying to catch a flight!

Flurrie: Don’t worry! He’ll make it! You’re doing fine, sir!

Doopliss: Yeah, yeah…

Big Boo/Big Blue Boo -- Ghosts - 7:01

Big Boo: Eeeheeheeheeee…

Blue Boo: Diamond City. Heh, that’s where Wario made his lousy games.

Big Boo: Well, let’s get going.

***Big Boo: We need to move on up. We need to.


Hammer Bro./Boomerang Bro. -- Partners
Hammer: Well, we just saw two taxis whiz by.

Boomerang: We got passed, but it’ll be okay.

***Hammer: We didn’t ask any people on the way for money because we wanted to get to the airport. We’d ask while we waited for the flight.

Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
Raz: Oh, they’re barely squeaking in!

Flurrie/Doopliss -- Actress/Actor
Doopliss: Tickets!

Beanie: Don’t worry, you’re on the flight, but you’d better hurry. They’re boarding now.

Raz: Nice last minute dash.

Flurrie: Oh, thank you, darling! Well… we’re off!

Raini: And look at that! No Bros. What happened to them?

First Flight - Raz/Raini, Broque Monsieur/Broque Madame, Bombette/Bruce, Flurrie/Doopliss

Birdo/Mouser -- Partners/Best Friends - 7:15
Mouser: Let’s go then.

Birdo: Okay! We’re all set!

Mouser: C’mon! I see a cab down there!

***Birdo: We had a talk during the last Pit Stop and realized that we’d get much farther in the race if we worked together.

***Mouser: So we’re gonna try to stop fighting.

Mouser: Hahahaaaa! We’re gonna get first place this time! Wooo!!!

Birdo: All right!

Big Boo/Big Blue Boo -- Ghosts
Big Boo: There’s the airport.

Blue Boo: And look. There’s the Bros.

Hammer Bro./Boomerang Bro. -- Partners
Hammer: Ughhh… Well, we’re here.

Boomerang: What a long walk… Well, we’re here.

Hammer: Yeah, I just said that.

Big Boo: What are you two dorks doing?

Hammer: We, uh, ran out of cash…

Boomerang: C’mon, let’s hurry up and get tickets so we can start begging.

Chanterelle/Toadofsky -- Singer/Composer - 7:20
Chanterelle: Oh, Diamond City!

Toadofsky: Let’s get going!

***Chanterelle: For this leg, we ended up leaving in last place.

***Toadofsky: But it’s no big deal. As long as we’re still racing.

Chanterelle: C’mon, let’s hurry so we can get on a really early flight.

Hammer Bro./Boomerang Bro. -- Partners
Hammer: 7:50? Ehh… All right…

Boomerang: C’mon, man.

***Hammer: And then we tried to raise some funds.

Hammer: Hi! Excuse me?

***Hammer: Man, it wasn’t the easiest thing. Everyone looked at us like enemies… I guess cuz we were.

Toad: *shakes head*

***Hammer: I mean, we got some money, but pretty soon we ran out of time. We had to get on the flight.

***Boomerang: And everyone else was on the flight, so we were in a tie for last place…

Second Flight - Big Boo/Big Blue Boo, Hammer Bro./Boomerang Bro., Birdo/Mouser, Chanterelle/Toadofsky

Bombette/Bruce -- Newly Dating
Bombette: Ohmigosh! I totally have to go shopping here sometime!

Bruce: Well, if we win, I’ll use some of the money to bring you wherever you want!

Bombette: Hahaha!

Flurrie/Doopliss -- Actress/Actor
Doopliss: Yo! Taxi!

Flurrie: Please hurry, we need to get to the ferry dock!

Phil: To get to Crygor Island, teams will have to take a ferry from this dock. There are two ferries in service: one colored blue and one colored red. Teams are asked to ride the red ferry to access the island. Should teams miss the red ferry, they will have to wait 15 minutes.

Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
Raz: Woo! C’mon, we’re flyin’!

Raini: We have to catch the red ferry. Please hurry, we don’t wanna miss it.

Broque Monsieur/Broque Madame -- Separated Couple

Broque Monsieur/Broque Madame -- Separated Couple
Monsieur: If zey ‘urry, everyone will get on.

Bombette/Bruce -- Newly Dating
Bombette: Oh, please hurry! We don’t wanna miss anything!

Bruce: We won’t, honey, don’t worry!

Bombette: Look! There’s someone passing us!

Flurrie/Doopliss -- Actress/Actor
Doopliss: Aw, yeah! Go, go, go!

Flurrie: There’s the dock, and two of the teams!

Two cars pull up.

Bombette/Bruce -- Newly Dating
Bruce: Hay! Wazzup, everyone?

*Ferry Horn*
Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
Raz: So we all got on the red ferry and it’s taking us across the waters.

Raini: Look at that building on the island!

Flurrie/Doopliss -- Actress/Actor
Flurrie: Wow! What a spectacular building!

***Flurrie: The sea breeze felt nice as we crossed the waters. In no time, we were there.

The boat pulls up to the dock and four teams run out.

*Riiiiip* *Riiiip* *Riiiiiiiip* *Riiiiiiiip*
Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
Raz: Detour!

Phil: A Detour is a choice between two tasks, each with its own pros and cons! Diamond City is home to the famous WarioWare Inc., and many of its residents are contributors to the company, including the owner of this laboratory, Dr. Crygor. Now, teams will have to experience some of his wild inventions, and choose between Touch or Twist. In Touch, teams will enter the laboratory and play one set of Microgames from WarioWare: Touched! However, there’s a catch. The DS they will be using is enormous, forcing both team members to use their entire bodies on the touch screen.

*Shot of two demonstrators running across a huge DS’s touch screen, drawing a line*

Phil: If teams can complete this strange task, they will receive their next clue. In Twist, teams will enter and receive a GameBoy Advance, normal-sized, and must play three sets of Microgames from WarioWare: Twisted! This task requires the completion of more Microgames, but it can be completed in a much more orthodox way.

Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
Raz: Touch or Twist…

Raini: I’ve never played WarioWare before…

Raz: Me neither. We’ll do Twisted. That way we can learn as we go.

Raini: Cool.

Broque Monsieur/Broque Madame -- Separated Couple
Monsieur: Touch?

Madame: No, Twist. Eet ees much easier…

Monsieur: D’accord. (Okay.)

Bombette/Bruce -- Newly Dating
Bombette: Umm… let’s do Twist.

Bruce: Yeah. Much easier.

Flurrie/Doopliss -- Actress/Actor
Flurrie: Shall we try Touch?

Doopliss: Yeah! We only have to do one set! It’ll be easy!

They all run through the door.

Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
***Raz: We all ran to the right, except for Doopliss and Flurrie. They chose the other one.

***Raini: And we were handed GameBoy Advances, and pretty soon the game was on.

Raz: Okay, so we have to pass it back and forth, taking turns beating minigames.

Raini: We control it by tilting it, right?

Raz: Yeah…

Broque Monsieur/Broque Madame -- Separated Couple
Monsieur: Zis will be fun!

Madame: ‘ere ees zee zing! We move eet around.

Monsieur: Eet ees simple. I’ll start. See?

Madame: Oh, haha! Zee cat moves into zee window!

Monsieur: Okay, you! Move zee car by tilting!

Flurrie/Doopliss -- Actress/Actor
Doopliss: Oh my gosh!

Flurrie: Wow!!!

Doopliss: That is the biggest DS ever!!! It’s like two stories high!

Flurrie: Okay! Get on!

***Doopliss: So the game started. First game was that one where you poke the kitten.

Flurrie: I got it! *Body Slams*

Bombette: Okay, my turn!

Bruce: Okay! Turn the… the thing!

Bombette: Waugh!

Bruce: That was close…

Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
Raz: Okay! Cool! Good job!

***Raz: Soon enough, we were done with our first set. It was a pretty easy game.

Flurrie/Doopliss -- Actress/Actor
Flurrie: Keep running!

Doopliss: Waaaughh!

***Flurrie: Then we got to this game where you had to draw a line for a guy to walk on, but we were too slow.

Flurrie: No! Aw, we lost!

Doopliss: Oh well! C’mon! We’ll try again!

Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
Raz: Careful! Careful!

Raini: Don’t worry, honey, I got it!

Raz: Okay good! Gimme…

Broque Monsieur/Broque Madame -- Separated Couple
Monsieur: Watch yourself! And bon!

Monsieur: Oui, you are! Now focus!

Bombette/Bruce -- Newly Dating
Bombette: Haha! This is kinda fun!

Bruce: Maybe we should play more videogames!

Bombette: Hahaha!

***Bombette: It was a pretty good task. The one thing we noticed is that no one in the room was complaining of failure.

Flurrie/Doopliss -- Actress/Actor
Doopliss: C’mon, c’mon, c’mon! Go!!!

Flurrie: Oh, no!!! We failed again.

Doopliss: Ugghhh… This is rough…

Flurrie: We gotta move quickly.

***Doopliss: It was a tough challenge and we got tired… but we kept working at it.

***Flurrie: But, my goodness, I’ve never sweat as hard as I did that day.

*Distant Ferry Horn*

Bombette/Bruce -- Newly Dating
Bombette: Aw, man…

Flurrie/Doopliss -- Actress/Actor
Doopliss: Ugghhh! C’mon!

Flurrie: This is impossible…

***Doopliss: As we kept at it, we realized that we had chosen the wrong task.

***Flurrie: So we switched.

Flurrie: C’mon! We’ll make up for lost time.

Doopliss: GRAAAHHHH!!!

Bombette/Bruce -- Newly Dating

*Riiiiiiip* *Riiiiiiiip* *Riiip* *Riiip*

Chanterelle: Detour…

Hammer Bro./Boomerang Bro. -- Partners
Hammer: Umm… Let’s just do the Touch. It’ll be faster.

***Hammer: We wanted to get out quickly, and we saw that it was one set to three sets, so we went with the touched one.

Chanterelle/Toadofsky -- Singer/Composer
Toadofsky: Twist…

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

Big Boo/Big Blue Boo -- Ghosts

They both get in one.

Raz: Wow, we’re going to WarioWare!

Raini: Can’t wait!

Flurrie/Doopliss -- Actress/Actor
Flurrie: Oh yeah, this is much easier!

Doopliss: Uh oh, the second flight is here.

Flurrie: Don’t worry, hon. I got it.

Chanterelle/Toadofsky -- Singer/Composer
Chanterelle: Ok… so I… twist it?

Toadofsky: Yeah. See? It makes the cat move.

***Toadofsky: Chanty isn’t exactly the type of person to play videogames. It took her a little bit of time to figure it out, but she got it.

Chanterelle: Ok… haha! That’s kind of neat!

Toadofsky: Great! Okay, my turn.

Big Boo/Big Blue Boo -- Ghosts

Monsieur: Wait for us!

***Madame: We both stepped into zee elevator, and eet took us to zee top floor.

Everyone: …

Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
***Raz: Yeah… very crowded… Not too comfortable.


Raz: Wowww… This is WarioWare!

We see a camera shot of the top floor, which mostly has cubicles with computers, as well as a few large TVs.

*Riiiiiip* *Riiiiiiip*

Raini: Roadblock!

Phil is seen playing with a DS. A view of the screen shows that he’s playing a DIY microgame. When he wins, a bunch of letters fall down saying “A Roadblock is a task that only one person may perform”.

Phil: …and no one can do more than 6 on the entire race. In this Roadblock, teams will join the multimillion-coin company that is WarioWare Inc., whose latest game, WarioWare DIY, allows players to actually create their own microgames. Now, teams will have to create three distinct microgames. These microgames may be whatever the team member wishes them to be. However, they will be tested out by staff members once completed. If the staff members can survive playing these microgames for a full minute without losing all of their lives, the team member must start over and create three new microgames. However, should the staff member lose, they will receive their next clue.

Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
Raz: Who’s ready to DIY?

Raini: What’s that mean?

Raz: Means “Do it Yourself”… I guess I’ll do it…

Broque Monsieur/Broque Madame -- Separated Couple
Monsieur: I assume you ‘ave to make your own games. Can you ‘andle that?

Madame: Sure. I zink eet will require brains, so I will do eet.

Monsieur: Humph… Fine…

Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
Raz: Hi! This the game?

Worker: Just follow the on-screen instructions to create your own microgames.

Raz: Cool…

Broque Monsieur/Broque Madame -- Separated Couple
Madame: Okay, I must zink ‘ere… I need to make zee games zat are ‘ard to win…

Both: …

Big Boo: Great! We’re almost done!

Blue Boo: Don’t lose focus!

Big Boo: I got it…

Chanterelle/Toadofsky -- Singer/Composer
Chanterelle: Oh no, we lost a life…

Birdo/Mouser -- Partners/Best Friends
Birdo: You’re pretty good at this…

Mouser: What can I say? I’m a gamer!

Birdo: We’re almost done…

Flurrie/Doopliss -- Actress/Actor
Both: …

Flurrie: You know, I really hope the Bros. don’t get on this ferry. Then we could REALLY get ahead of them.

Doopliss: Yeah…

Hammer Bro./Boomerang Bro. -- Partners
Hammer: GO!

Boomerang: TRYING!

Hammer: Faster faster! Ugh, no! We failed!

***Hammer: The Touched Detour was HARD, man… We just couldn’t do it…


Hammer: Well, there goes a ferry… You wanna switch?

Boomerang: Ow… We might as well… This is way too hard.

***Hammer: We went over to the other room, and there was no one there.

Flurrie/Doopliss -- Actress/Actor
Chanterelle/Toadofsky -- Singer/Composer
Big Boo/Big Blue Boo – Ghosts
Birdo/Mouser -- Partners/Best Friends
All: Wooo!!!

They sail away on the ferry.

Hammer Bro./Boomerang Bro. -- Partners
Hammer: Are we in last?

Boomerang: I don’t even wanna think about that…

Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
Raz: This is fun… Okay, now what should I do?

***Raz: I made one really easy game to get the hang of it, and then I moved onto some harder games.

Raz: Like… that…

***Raz: I made this game where you have to tap this square, but the square is tiny and it’s moving all over the place.

Raz: Hopefully that’ll do… That’s really hard, but these guys must be experts…

Broque Monsieur/Broque Madame -- Separated Couple
Madame: Ah, such fun. I feel like a real computer nerd, no?

Monsieur: ‘ow ees eet coming, ma cheri?

Raz: Just what we need… more company…

Hammer Bro./Boomerang Bro. -- Partners
Hammer: Done.

Boomerang: That was beyond easy. I have no idea why we chose the other one.

Hammer: Because we’re stupid. C’mon, we gotta grab the ferry…

Boomerang: Ugghh…

Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
Raz: One more game… but I think my square one will be perfect…

Broque Monsieur/Broque Madame -- Separated Couple

Hammer Bro./Boomerang Bro. -- Partners
Hammer: Here we go.

Boomerang: No, this is the wrong one. We have to wait until the blue one comes back.

Hammer: Aw, man… Guess that means the others have reached the other side…

Mouser: I’m not so sure…

Big Boo: Cool! I’ve always wanted to design my own game! This is awesome. I’ll make it the most awesomest game ever.

Flurrie/Doopliss -- Actress/Actor

Hammer Bro./Boomerang Bro. -- Partners
Hammer: Ugghh… C’mon! Taxi!

Boomerang: We got enough money?

Hammer: Barely…

Bombette/Bruce -- Newly Dating

Broque Monsieur/Broque Madame -- Separated Couple
Moniseur: Over zere! Pull over!

Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
Phil: Raz & Raini? You’re Team Number Two!

Raz: Aww, oh well! Two’s not bad!

Raini: Haha! I wonder how the Bros. Ended up doing?

Hammer Bro./Boomerang Bro. -- Partners
Hammer: Dude, you gotta make sure you know the way. I ain’t paying more money just because you got lost.

Cabbie: Yeah, yeah…

Boomerang: Don’t tick him off, he’s getting us there.

Hammer: …

Flurrie/Doopliss -- Actress/Actor
Flurrie: Um… hm…

***Flurrie: I’m more used to acting in plays rather than writing them. So I encountered a little writer’s block when making my games…

Big Boo/Big Blue Boo -- Ghosts
Big Boo: Done! My games are so awesome!

Dribble: Great! Lemme test ‘em out…

Big Boo: Haha!!! This Roadblock’s as good as done!

Blue Boo: …

Birdo/Mouser -- Partners/Best Friends
Mouser: So wait, hold on, I don’t get it.

Worker: All I can tell you is to pay attention to the on-screen instructions.

Mouser: Yeah, but I don’t… um…

Birdo: C’mon, you dork! Figure it out!

Mouser: SHUT UP!

Birdo: Stop yelling at me and just DO IT!

***Birdo: … We need to work on our communication… for sure.

***Mouser: He’s right.

***Birdo: *Punch*

Chanterelle/Toadofsky -- Singer/Composer
Toadofsky: Well, this is kind of fun! I’m making games!

***Toadofsky: Yeah, I really enjoyed the Roadblock. It was fun to let my creativity flow!

Big Boo/Big Blue Boo -- Ghosts
Big Boo: But… but…

Dribble: Totally awesome games, man… but way too easy!

Big Boo: Aw, man… c’mon… .

Blue Boo: What? Did he win?

Big Boo: Yeah… I gotta make ‘em harder I guess…

Bombette/Bruce -- Newly Dating
Bruce: That looks like the place!

Bombette: Ooh! Swingin’!

They step in.

Phil: … Bombette & Bruce… You’re Team Number Three!

Bruce: Yay!

Bombette: This was a fun leg! Real fun leg! I enjoyed it!

Bruce: Aw, I’m just enjoying the time I get to spend with you!

Bombette: Haha! Cut it out!

Bruce: Woo-hoo!!!

Hammer Bro./Boomerang Bro. -- Partners
Hammer: Look, I see it over there! It’s the big tall building!

Boomerang: Over there… THERE! Dude, listen to me!

Hammer: He barely understands…

***Hammer: I still don’t understand how we got into a Diamond City taxi with a driver who barely spoke English… These taxi companies are really desperate for employees.

Hammer: THAT… WAY! GO!!!

Boomerang: Ugghh…

Chanterelle/Toadofsky -- Singer/Composer
Toadofsky: Okay, I’m all done!

Spitz: Gimme!

Flurrie/Doopliss -- Actress/Actor
Flurrie: My beautiful games have been completed! Test me please!

Ashley: Very well…

Birdo/Mouser -- Partners/Best Friends
Mouser: Hey, people! Test me!

Young Cricket: As you wish…

Big Boo/Big Blue Boo -- Ghosts
Blue Boo: Falling behind!

Big Boo: I know… I’m trying to perfect them here!

Chanterelle/Toadofsky -- Singer/Composer
***Toadofsky: One of my games was a musical game, since I’m a composer. You had to tap the right notes to make a melody.

Spitz: *angry cat noise*

***Toadofsky: I guess my tester wasn’t very musically-minded.

Flurrie/Doopliss -- Actress/Actor
***Flurrie: I made a game of fashion. You have to pick the right clothes so that they look gorgeous on the little person.

Ashley: …

***Flurrie: She was simply NOT a fashion person, the one who tested me.

Birdo/Mouser -- Partners/Best Friends
***Mouser: I wasn’t very good at making the games. They kinda stunk… But luckily my tester slipped up.

Young Cricket: … That is an embarrassing loss…

***Mouser: Lucky me, I guess.

Chanterelle/Toadofsky -- Singer/Composer
Toadofsky: I got the clue!

Birdo/Mouser -- Partners/Best Friends
Mouser: C’mon! Let’s go!

Big Boo/Big Blue Boo -- Ghosts
Big Boo: Aw, man… They all got it…

*Riiiiiip* *Riiiiiiip* *Riiiiiiiiiiiip*
Chanterelle/Toadofsky -- Singer/Composer
Toadofsky: It’s the Pit Stop! C’mon!

Chanterelle: Oh, I want to beat all these people! Let’s hurry!

Flurrie/Doopliss -- Actress/Actor
Doopliss: C’moooonnn! Let’s go!

Hammer Bro./Boomerang Bro. -- Partners
All: *yelling*

***Hammer: So we finally got to WarioWare, but there was a problem.

Hammer: You said you knew how to get there, but you drove in circles! I’m not paying this!

***Hammer: The guy wanted us to pay the full fare shown on the meter, but he lied to us in the beginning.

Boomerang: No, no, no. We didn’t hire you to get us lost.

***Hammer: Either way, we only had enough to pay what we would’ve paid if he hadn’t gotten lost. We couldn’t pay the extra.

Cabbie: I need you pay me 50 coins now!

Hammer: No. I know for a fact that it only costs 30 coins to get here, but you got lost.

As they’re arguing, Chanterelle & Toadofsky, Flurrie & Doopliss, and Birdo & Mouser run by in the background.

Hammer: Look, this is all I’m offering. Take it or leave it.

***Hammer: We were on the curb for a good 15 minutes arguing with this guy…

All: *still yelling*

Chanterelle/Toadofsky -- Singer/Composer
In a cab…

Toadofsky: That sounded fun.

Chanterelle: Yeah. Let’s hurry, the others are right behind us.

3 cabs speed off.

Big Boo/Big Blue Boo -- Ghosts
Big Boo: I’ve got it this time.

Blue Boo: Really, now?

Big Boo: *snickers* Yeah.

Crygor: *weeping* Shut up…


Big Boo: We’re gonna need to get a taxi.

Blue Boo: We’re gonna need to get out of the building first… >.<

Hammer Bro./Boomerang Bro. -- Partners
Boomerang: C’mon, let’s go.

Hammer: All right, fine. If you won’t take it, you can’t have it.

Cabbie: Hay hay, no, no, no!

Hammer: Don’t touch me, bro.

Big Boo/Big Blue Boo -- Ghosts
Big Boo: Whoops, s’cuse us…

Blue Boo: Um… Yeah, c’mon.

Hammer Bro./Boomerang Bro. -- Partners
Boomerang: People are leaving already! C’mon, we’re losing ground!

Big Boo/Big Blue Boo -- Ghosts
*Slam* *Drive away*

Big Boo: What was that all about?

Blue Boo: I dunno. Good news for us, bad news for them…

Chanterelle/Toadofsky -- Singer/Composer
Chanterelle: There it is! There it is!

Toadofsky: Come on! Don’t let them beat you!

Flurrie/Doopliss -- Actress/Actor
Flurrie: They’re stopping, they’re stopping! Pull over!

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

They all scramble out of the taxis and into the club.

Chanterelle: Go!

Toadofsky: I’m here!

Mouser: Ack!

Doopliss: Augh! Go!

Flurrie: Woah!

They all step on the mat at virtually the same time/

Phil: …

All: …

Phil: Chanterelle & Toadofsky? You’re team number 4!

Chanterelle/Toadofsky -- Singer/Composer
Chanterelle: Yay!

Toadofsky: Cool! Awesome!

Phil: Birdo & Mouser? You’re team number 5!

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

Phil: And Flurrie & Doopliss, you’re team number 6.

Both: *nod*

Phil: Congratulations everybody. You’re all within milliseconds of each other in the fourth leg of the race. Looks like the competition is strong!

Chanterelle/Toadofsky -- Singer/Composer
Toadofsky: Yeah… There’s some cutthroat competition in this game.

Birdo/Mouser -- Partners/Best Friends
Mouser: Heh heh… This is why we’re here. Because we’re strong, strong competitors.

Birdo: Maybe I am, but what are you?

Mouser: Hey, shaddup.

Flurrie/Doopliss -- Actress/Actor
Doopliss: Well, we’re here.

Flurrie: Yeah! And what a fun leg that was!

All: *various agreements*

Big Boo/Big Blue Boo -- Ghosts
Big Boo: This is the right way, right?

Cabbie: Don’t worry, bro. I go to this club allllll the time!

Big Boo: Haha, sounds good.

Blue Boo: We passed up the Bros. there… Looked like they weren’t in a very good position.

Big Boo: Yeah….I asked the people to save the microgames I made.

Blue Boo: Really?

Big Boo: I made some awesome games. You should try them!

Blue Boo: Yeah, no…

The cab pulls up to the club.

Big Boo: Swingin’ club!

Blue Boo: Hey, Phil!

Phil: Big Boo & Big Blue Boo…?

Big Boo: C’mon, Phil. Cut the drama, we already know.

Phil: … You’re team number 7.

Big Boo: That’s all right.

Blue Boo: “All right”? It’s second to last!

Big Boo: Yeah, but we’re not eliminated. That’s the point.

Blue Boo: Right…

The scene fades from the club to Hammer Bro. & Boomerang Bro. in the elevator.

Hammer Bro./Boomerang Bro. -- Partners
***Hammer: We… were at a standstill with our taxi driver. He wouldn’t budge on the issue. Finally, this really, really nice girl walked by and just gave us the extra money.


***Boomerang: Then the devil cab driver left and we went up and did the Roadblock.

Boomerang: I’ll do this one…

***Boomerang: It went by really quickly, but I wasn’t too happy when we were finished.


Hammer: Take a taxi to the next Pit St- Aww…

***Hammer: We had to take yet another taxi… And we had no coins… at all…

***Boomerang: So we had to go out and beg…

We see a shot of the sun going down.

***Hammer: Then the sun went down. There weren’t as many people on the streets. They were all in cabs, heading home or to the clubs or whatever…

Hammer: How much more?

Boomerang: I dunno, dude…

***Hammer: We made about 20 coins, but we didn’t know if it was enough.

***Boomerang: So we flagged down a taxi and asked him.

Cabbie: Okay, come in.

***Hammer: We rode it to the club, and the fare was 35 coins, but he just took the 20 we had.

Hammer: Thank you so much.

Boomerang: You’re an angel!

***Boomerang: The nicest cab driver we’ve ever met in our life.

***Hammer: If it weren’t for him…

Both: *huge sigh*

Hammer: S’up?

Phil: … Hammer Bro. & Boomerang Bro.?

Hammer: We know.

Phil: You’re the last team to arrive…

Boomerang: Mhm…

Both: …

Phil: Have troubles this leg?

Hammer: It’s all because of money. If we’d had more money, we’d still be in first.

Phil: Well, you’ll be happy to know that this is a non-elimination leg, and you are still in the race.

Hammer: Oh my gosh…

Boomerang: You are kidding me.

Hammer: That’s… just not possible.

Phil: You happy?

Hammer: You can’t believe how happy we are.

Boomerang: Yeah… We’re just too tired to show it.

Phil: Now, in the next leg of the race you will encounter a Speed Bump, which is an extra task that only your team has to perform.

Hammer: Hey, whatever we gotta do.

Boomerang: We will overcome. That’s our motto.

Hammer: Um… Nno it’s not, but whatever…

***Hammer: We’ve been given a second chance, and we’re not going to give it up.

***Boomerang: As the top soldiers in Bowser’s Army, we’ve got a reputation to uphold.

***Hammer: It’s just an itty bitty little Speed Bump, and then we’re back in the game.

***Boomerang: Yeah, and then the other teams will really have something to worry about!
