The Amazing Race MK III

By Giga Bowser NS

Episode 7
Title: I don’t like thinking smart

Phil: Previously on The Amazing Race MK!

Phil: Seven teams rode the Rainbow Ride Cruiser to Paintbrush City and jumped through a painting to Tiny-Huge Island! In the first Fast Forward of the race, two teams squared off in fierce competition. In the end, Raz & Raini came out victorious and checked in in first place! Meanwhile, other teams were having various difficulties. It was a close race, but eventually Chanterelle & Toadofsky were eliminated, having incurred a penalty. Now…six teams remain…Who will be eliminated…next?

The opening plays with a new Red “X” over Chanterelle & Toadofsky

Phil: This is Tiny Huge-Island! A mysterious island isolated in the Mushroom Sea, it houses very mysterious properties. The many pipes scattered around can make it a strange environment to be sure. And inside this massive mountain in the center is the home of Wiggler, the sixth Pit Stop in a race around the MK! Teams arrived here for a mandatory rest period. Will Doopliss & Flurrie be able to climb out of last place? And can anyone prevent the Bros. from getting their fourth first-place finish? Raz & Raini, who were the first to arrive…will depart…at 9:29 AM


Raz: Take a boat to any airport you wish and then fly to the land Mario created all on his own, also known as Mario Land!

Phil: Teams can now hire a boat to any nearby airport and then fly to Mario Land. One of two places in the Mushroom Kingdom to be named Mario Land, this particular region was the home of Mario’s second party, and includes many lands such as Western Land and Space Land. When teams land, they must enter this pipe and find their way to Mystery Land to get their next clue.

Raz: Awesome!

Raini: Mario Land…Isn’t that where Mario’s Castle is?

Raz: Wrong Mario Land. This one’s way up north!

Raini: Cool! Let’s go!

***Raz: We’re in first now, thanks to the Fast Forward, and we want to try to stay on top!

***Raini: It’s real fun!

Raz: We gotta figure out which airport to go to.

Raini: *pulls out map* Let’s see…We could go to Diamond City…or Lavalava Island…

Raz: Those aren’t very big…

Raini: They’re the closest. We could go to Beanbean International, I guess, but that’s so far away.

Raz: Yeah…Let’s go to Diamond City

Raini: Okay

Raz: The boats are down there! C’mon, hop down!

Raini: It’s gonna be exciting

They drive off in a boat.


Hammer Bro./Boomerang Bro. -- Partners - 9:40 AM
Hammer: Mario Land…Let’s make sure we go the right one.

Boomerang: Yeah.

***Hammer: We’re back on top and we love it.

***Boomerang: Yeah, and we’re not going to fall behind.

Hammer: Which airport?

Boomerang: Let’s go to Diamond City

Birdo/Mouser -- Partners/Best Friends - 9:55 AM
Birdo: And we’re off!

Mouser: Can you believe we’re still in this thing?

Birdo: Don’t jinx us!

Mouser: Which airport?

***Mouser: I think…we’re getting better. We’re not fighting as much…

***Birdo: I’m a girl…A GIRL…How is it so hard to see?!

***Mouser: But things are looking good!

Mouser: You sure you don’t wanna just go to Diamond City?

Birdo: We’ll do better if we go to Beanbean!

Mouser: But it’s farther away!

Birdo: ….Well, let’s go then!

Mouser: Let’s get theeereee!!!

Broque Monsieur/Broque Madame -- Separated Couple - 10:04 AM

Bruce: Woo! Awesome! I’ve always wanted to enjoy a Mario Party!

Bombette: They sure are exclusive, aren’t they? How did Hammer Bro. get himself invited anyhow?

Bruce: It’s a mystery.

***Bruce: This race…is so tough, it’s unbelievable.

***Bombette: I think people underestimated us because we have no arms…

*We see a Flashback from Season 1*

***Bombette: I watch the show, and I know that one team got eliminated because they had no arms…

Bombette: Oh, definitely Lavalava

Bruce: Oookee dok!

Flurrie/Doopliss -- Actress/Actor - 10:20 AM
Flurrie: Go!


Doopliss: Let’s go then! We don’t wanna be out now!

***Doopliss: We were almost eliminated last leg…and we were a little frightened

Doopliss: Which one?

Flurrie: I say we go to Beanbean. It’s the biggest one.

Doopliss: All right!

***Doopliss: So we’re trying….trying to survive…

Both: …

They sail away.

The sun moves to the middle of the sky. We see a split screen showing all 6 teams arriving at the airports.

Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
Raz: Okay, let’s go!

Raini: The Bros. are over there! They’re right behind us.

Raz: Ughh…


Raz: Hello! We need to fly to Northern Mario Land!

All of them nod.

Birdo/Mouser -- Partners/Best Friends
Mouser: So…we’re finally here…

Birdo: Okay, let’s go see.

A plane takes off in the distance.

Mouser: Hopefully we’ll get on a good flight.

First Flight - Raz/Raini, Hammer Bro./Boomerang Bro.
Second Flight - Broque Monsieur/Broque Madame, Bombette/Bruce

The flights take off.

Birdo/Mouser -- Partners/Best Friends
Mouser: Hey! We need to get on a flight to Northern Mario Land.

Birdo: What’s your-

Agent: Oh, you should’ve been a little quicker. One left just a few minutes ago. A direct flight.

Mouser: Aw, man!!!

Birdo: That’s terrible. Bleah…When’s the next flight?

Agent: Let’s see…you take Northern Air at 2:15 PM.

***Flurrie: We got to Beanbean International. We saw Mouser there, and he told us when the flight was.

Mouser: So, yeah…You’re on our flight.

***Doopliss: It was immediately apparent that we went to the wrong airport…

All 4: …

Third Flight - Birdo/Mouser, Flurrie/Doopliss

Phil: All teams are flying to Mario Land, the land of parties to the north.

*Shots of Western, Pirate, Space and Horror Lands*

First Flight - 11:15 PM
Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
Raz: Woo! Come on! Find the big orange pipe!

Raini: We’re going to Mystery Land! Woo!!

Hammer Bro./Boomerang Bro. -- Partners
Hammer: This is the pipe, yeah?

Boomerang: C’mon guys!

Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
Raz: We’re coming!

***Raz: When we landed in Mario Land, it was just us and the Bros., and the Bros. decided that they wanted to work with us, just for this leg.

***Hammer: We wanted to try to get some other teams eliminated.

Raini: It’s the middle of the night! Don’t bump into anything!

Hammer: Here’s the pipe!

Boomerang: Woah! Big pipe!

Hammer: Well let’s go!

Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
Raz: How do we get to Mystery Land? Doesn’t this pipe lead to all of them?

Raini: Let’s just enter!

They all run down the orange pipe.

***Raini: That pipe was loooooong! Hahaha! But right near the end there was a big junction.

Raini: Oh, HERE we go.

Hammer Bro./Boomerang Bro. -- Partners
Boomerang: This one. This is Mystery Land!

Hammer: Well let’s go!

Boomerang: Wooo!!!

A pipe emerges and spits out the four people.

All 4: Whoaa!!

Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
Raz: Crazy…

Raini: It’s like a jungle or something! There’s ruins and…wow…

Hammer Bro./Boomerang Bro. -- Partners
Hammer: There’s the clue box! C’mon!

Boomerang: I got it!

*Riiiiiiiip* *Riiiiiiiiiip*

Raz: Detour….

Hammer: A Detour!

Phil: A Detour is a choice between two tasks, each with its own pros and cons! In this Detour, teams must explore the vast areas of Mystery Land and choose between Archaeology and Astrology. In Archaeology, teams travel to this nearby pyramid in the southwest of the land. Then, they must enter this small passageway and descend into the catacombs below. Once at the bottom, they will find some hieroglyphs and a legend. They must translate these hieroglyphs into their next clue. Translating the ancient language is not very difficult, but teams will have to travel all the way down and then all the way back up the catacombs. In Astrology, teams will travel to this strange area in the central-east, a place where the Party-goers could become trapped. Once there, they will find a telescope. They must then gaze into the sky and find the constellation marked on their clue. This task is slightly more difficult, but teams will travel less distance.

Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
Raz: Archaeology or Astrology?

Raini: Oh, I love Astrology! Come on, let’s do that one!

Hammer Bro./Boomerang Bro. -- Partners
Hammer: We wanna do Archaeology, because we can run faster.

Boomerang: But Bro, they might be able to find it quickly. Then they can show us.

Hammer: Um…

Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
Raz: Yeah! Don’t worry, Raini loves stargazing.

Boomerang: C’mon!

Hammer: Fine.

*Overview of the Land*

Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
Raz: Wow…Crazy…

Raini: Mario sure loves to party in the craziest places.

Hammer Bro./Boomerang Bro. -- Partners
Hammer: Yeah, he does…But parties are awesome.

Boomerang: Look! The spaces are still on the ground! Hahaha!

Hammer: Where are we going?

Boomerang: They should be up this way!

Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
Raz: Yeah! Here’s the telescopes.

Raini: Okay, we have to find this constellation.

Raz: Do your thing.

Hammer Bro./Boomerang Bro. -- Partners
Hammer: Let’s see if we can find it.

Boomerang: It’s a Mushroom…The shape of a Mushroom….

Raini: Gotta figure out where we are…Where’s Polaris?

Second Flight - 12:28 AM
Bombette/Bruce -- Newly Dating
Bombette: Let’s go! Wooo!!

Bruce: This is Mario Land? Whoa! It’s so weird!

Broque Monsieur/Broque Madame -- Separated Couple
Monsieur: Zere ees zee pipe! Entrons-nous!!  (Let’s enter!!)

Bruce: Woo!! In we gooooo!!!

They all run into the pipe.

Hammer Bro./Boomerang Bro. -- Partners
Hammer: This place is spooky at night…

Boomerang: You’re not afraid, are you?

Hammer: I ain’t afraid of no…darkness…

Boomerang: ………Smooth…

Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
Raz: Anything?

Raini: Just give me like one more minute. I’m trying to get my bearings. That’s the hardest part, but once I know where we are in the sky, it’ll be a snap.

Raz: No one else is here yet, so just keep at it…

Hammer Bro./Boomerang Bro. -- Partners
Hammer: See anything?

Boomerang: Nah…This sky is confusing…So many stars…

Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
***Raz: I know it seems weird that we wanted to help the Bros. because they’re such a strong team…but there are some teams in this race that really don’t deserve to win…

***Raini: We want to try to make sure that Mouser and Doopliss get eliminated…

Raini: …

A pipe appears and spits out four team members.

All: Wahhh..

Broque Monsieur/Broque Madame -- Separated Couple
Monsieur: Oof…Oh mon…we are ‘ere!

Madame: Wow! And Mario and ‘is friends built zis all on zere own?

Monsieur: Oui! Just for zee party!

Bombette/Bruce -- Newly Dating
Bombette: Enough chat! Get the clue!

*Riiiiiip* *Riiiiip*

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

Bombette/Bruce -- Newly Dating
Bruce: Let’s do Archaeology. It sounds fun!

Bombette: Yeah! Sounds so cool!

Broque Monsieur/Broque Madame -- Separated Couple
Monsieur: We cannot fit into zee small passage…

Madame: Oui. Let’s go do zee Astrology.

Monsieur: Stargazing, oui!!

Madame: So romantique!

Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
Raz: Uh oh…Two teams are here.

Raini: Oh…

Hammer Bro./Boomerang Bro. -- Partners
Hammer: Is it Mouser or Doopliss?

Raz: I see the Broques…they’re coming here. HEY!

Broque Monsieur/Broque Madame -- Separated Couple
Monsieur: ‘Allo!!

Raz: Who else is with you?

Monsieur: Zee bombs! Zey went to zee ozer Detour!

Raz: Oh good…Well, c’mon! Grab a telescope. We’re all kinda working together because we want Mouser and Doopliss out.

Monsieur: Oh, us too. We want zee final four to be us three as well as zee bombs.

Raini: That would be great…

Bombette/Bruce -- Newly Dating
Bombette: Is this it?

Bruce: Yeah, wow! Nice pyramid.

Bombette: Okay, now we have to find the passageway…

Bruce: I think this is it over here…

***Bombette: As soon as we stepped into the passage, I was reminded of Dry Dry Ruins.

***Bruce: It was very cramped and poorly lit.

***Bombette: Really creepy.

Bombette: Stay close…Don’t want to get lost…

Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
Raz: Got it?

Raini: Yeah…there’s Polaris…Pass me the map…

Raz: She’s almost got it, folks!

Raini: Okay…If that’s Polaris…and there’s the Starman…so the Mushroom should be……there! I got it! Guide, check please!

Snufit: …….Yes, that is correct. Congratulations.


Raz: Good job!

Raini: “Head north…”

Phil: Teams must now make their way to this area in the north of Mystery Land, where they will find their next clue.

Raz: Okay!

Hammer Bro./Boomerang Bro. -- Partners
Hammer: Don’t forget us!

Raini: Don’t worry. Lemme see…

***Boomerang: So Raini looked into the telescope, found the constellation, and got us the clue.

***Hammer: Yeah, and then she did it again for the Broques.

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

***Hammer: We were rivals before, and we’re probably gonna be rivals again later, but for now, we’re working to get some jerks eliminated.


Hammer: Thanks a lot!

Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
Raini: Right there! Show the guide.

Broque Monsieur/Broque Madame -- Separated Couple
Monsieur: Bon! Merci!!


Hammer Bro./Boomerang Bro. -- Partners
Hammer: Okay! Let’s get going!! Woo!!!

Boomerang: Mystery Land is cool, but I think we’ve done everything already, haven’t we? There’s the sky and the pyramids…and that’s about it. What could we possibly be doing for the Roadblock?

Hammer: I dunno, but whatever it is, it’ll be a snap for geniuses like us! Haha!

The three teams rush off.

Bombette/Bruce -- Newly Dating
Bombette: Wow…Cooolll…

Bruce: This is the bottom…okay…It’s so dark, get the flashlight…

Bombette: Right…

Bruce: So this is the key…Bird is “A”, Foot is “B”…Where’s the clue?

Bombette: Over here.

***Bombette: When we were down there deep in the pyramid…it was really neat.

***Bruce: We were all alone down deep underground…
***Bombette: It almost felt like we weren’t in a race anymore…

Bruce: Is this…Okay, this is the first word.

Bombette: Write it down…

Bruce: This is both creepy and cool…

Both: …

Hammer Bro./Boomerang Bro. -- Partners
Hammer: I wonder when the other two will get here…

Boomerang: Probably soon

Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
Raz: Keep moving! The clue must be up here somewhere!

Raini: I’m coming!

Broque Monsieur/Broque Madame -- Separated Couple
Monsieur: Such an interesting place!

Madame: Oui, oui!

Bombette/Bruce -- Newly Dating
Both: …

***Bombette: The clue wasn’t too hard to translate.

***Bruce: It was pretty easy…

Bombette: What was that sound?!

Bruce: Just some water dripping, don’t worry.

Bombette: It’s really creepy down here…

Bruce: Just stick close.

Last Flight
Birdo/Mouser -- Partners/Best Friends
Mouser: Woo!! Go go go!!

Birdo: Where’s the pipe?!

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

Flurrie: Let’s stay on top!

Doopliss: WOO!!

Birdo/Mouser -- Partners/Best Friends
Mouser: That way! Go! Go!

Birdo: Coming!!

Mouser: Pipe! Woo!

Bombette/Bruce -- Newly Dating
Bombette: Okay…What have we got?

Bruce: “Head North for your next clue.”

Bombette: Sounds good! Let’s get out of here!

Bruce: Don’t need to tell me twice!

Bombette: C’mon!!

Hammer Bro./Boomerang Bro. -- Partners
Hammer: Over there?

Boomerang: I see something!

Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
Raz: This is it!

Raini: What is all this?

*Shot of many slabs of rock with odd markings on them*

Raz: Whoa…

Raini: There’s the clue box!

The three teams grab a clue.

*Riiiiiiiiiip* *Riiiiiiiiiip* *Riiip*

Broque Monsieur/Broque Madame -- Separated Couple
Monsieur: Roadblock!

Hammer Bro./Boomerang Bro. -- Partners
Hammer: Who’s got the brains?

Phil: A Roadblock is a task that only one person may perform, and no one can do more than six! Between some of his more famous adventures in the Mushroom Kingdom, Mario also did some minor things that, while not world-wide famous, were important to the history of this Kingdom. In fact, one of the least well-known escapades Mario set out on was his archaeological dig. Now, teams will experience the mental frustration that Mario faced when he discovered that he was, in fact, digging up…Picross…Team members will choose a large slab of rock and must successfully use Picross to reveal a picture. Teams will use these numbers to determine how many squares must be colored in on any row or column. If teams should incorrectly color in a square, a 5-minute penalty will be imposed while the square is replaced. Once teams reveal the correct picture, they will receive their next clue.

Hammer: Ummm…

Boomerang: Me!

Hammer: Good luck!

Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
Raz: I’ll do it.

Broque Monsieur/Broque Madame -- Separated Couple
Monsieur: I will do zis one.

They run over to their slabs.

Hammer Bro./Boomerang Bro. -- Partners
Boomerang: Holy cow…”Picross”? What…I don’t even know what…

Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
Raz: Read your clue, everyone!

Broque Monsieur/Broque Madame -- Separated Couple
Monsieur: Yes, zere are zee instructions on zee clue.

Hammer Bro./Boomerang Bro. -- Partners
Boomerang: Okay…There are sets of numbers for every row and column. These numbers indicate that there will be n blocks in a row colored in, followed by at least one block not colored in…Oh! Wait, I see. This first one has a “15” and there’s 15 blocks, so that means they’re all colored in!

He begins chiseling.

Boomerang: This takes thinking…

Broque Monsieur/Broque Madame -- Separated Couple
Monsieur: Oh, I ‘ave done zis zing before…but zis ees a big one. I ‘ave only done zee ones on paper…


Monsieur: I will do zee edges…zen work toward zee middle.

Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
Raz: Wait… I think I get it…So this row is chiseled in…and then all of this one except the last one…


Snufit: No! That square is incorrect.

Raz: Aw man! Now I have to wait five minutes…

Raini: …

Bombette/Bruce -- Newly Dating
Bombette: Woo!! Back on the surface!

Bruce: Still the middle of the night, eh?

Bombette: Yeah…

Birdo/Mouser -- Partners/Best Friends
Mouser: There it is! Grab the clue!

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

Bombette/Bruce -- Newly Dating
Bombette: Oh, the last flight is here!

Bruce: Come on! Let’s make ourselves scarce!

*Riiiiiiip* *Riiiiiiiip*

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

Birdo: Hmm…

Flurrie/Doopliss -- Actress/Actor
Doopliss: Let’s do Archaeology!

Flurrie: Yeah! It’ll be easy!

Birdo/Mouser -- Partners/Best Friends
Mouser: C’mon! We’ll do Archaeology!

Birdo: Sounds good! C’mon!

Bombette/Bruce -- Newly Dating
Bombette: Well, they’re off…

Bruce: The Roadblock is up this way! I’m sure of it!

Bombette: Let’s go! Woo!!

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

***Boomerang: Picross is hard, man! I was carefully looking at all of the numbers and trying to figure out what goes where and whatever…It’s hard!

Broque Monsieur/Broque Madame -- Separated Couple
Monsieur: D’accord…

***Monsieur: Zee picross was not too ‘ard. But even for one like me ‘oo ‘as done picross before, eet still takes a long time to complete…

Monsieur: Along zee bottom zere is a line, so now all zee bottom numbers for zee columns can be filled in. Eight ‘ere…two ‘ere…10 ‘ere…

***Monsieur: Not a problem.

Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds

Raz: Okay…Gotta do this right.


***Raz: I was probably working a little too carefully…I didn’t want to make another mistake.

Raz: Wait…No, that can’t be right, don’t do that…..

All 3: …

Madame: Mon dieu…

Raini: I could never do this…

Hammer: They can’t help each other, can they?

Raini: No…………This could take all night…

Bombette/Bruce -- Newly Dating
Bombette: Roadblock!

Bruce: Umm…you?

Bombette: I guess I can do it.

Broque Monsieur/Broque Madame -- Separated Couple
Monsieur: Well, zere ‘ere now too.

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

Birdo/Mouser -- Partners/Best Friends
Mouser: Be careful of your head!

Birdo: There’s not much space in here, is there?! Oh man…

Mouser: This is cool! It’s like the underground in the Sub-con!

Flurrie/Doopliss -- Actress/Actor
Flurrie: Now we’re stuck behind them.

Doopliss: Don’t worry. As long as we don’t lose them, we can pass them at the Roadblock.

Flurrie: …

Both: …

Bombette/Bruce -- Newly Dating
Bombette: Oh gosh…I’m not so good with the puzzles…

Bruce: Just concentrate.

Bombette: Yeah….Okay, I’ll start…here…

***Bombette: It was like crossword with numbers…It was pretty hard…

Bombette: …

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

Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
Raz: …

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

Raini: Did the others go into the pyramid?

Bruce: I think so…


All 4: o.0

Raini: What was that?!

Madame: Mon dieu…

Birdo/Mouser -- Partners/Best Friends


***Birdo: A bat…landed…on me… >.<

***Mouser: That was…really embarrassing…


Mouser: DUDE!


Mouser: CALM DOWN!!!

Flurrie/Doopliss -- Actress/Actor
Flurrie: Come on. Let’s just get this clue written down.

***Doopliss: We were right at the bottom anyway so we got to writing the clue down…

Both: …

Birdo/Mouser -- Partners/Best Friends


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


Snufit: Sorry. That is incorrect.

Bommerang: DANGIT!!!

Hammer: This is harder than it looks. All four of them have already gotten like 5 penalties…This could take until tomorrow night…

Birdo/Mouser -- Partners/Best Friends
Mouser: C’mon spaz, let’s go!

***Birdo: We…handled the bat, wrote down the clue, and were on our way out.

***Mouser: But now Doopliss was ahead of us…

Doopliss: Let’s get outta here!! Wooo!!

Hammer Bro./Boomerang Bro. -- Partners
Broque Monsieur/Broque Madame -- Separated Couple
Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
Bombette/Bruce -- Newly Dating
*Various shots*

Snufit: No. No! No…No! No! No. NO! Sorry, but that’s another penalty!


Raz: Oh my gosh…

Monsieur: Mon dieeeuuu…

Bombette: Uugghhh…

***Bombette: That may have been the hardest Roadblock ever. Picross is very challenging and it’s hard to grasp the concept. If you don’t get it the first time, you’re not going to get it soon.

All 4: …

Flurrie/Doopliss -- Actress/Actor
Flurrie: On the surface! Let’s go!

Doopliss: Woo!

Birdo/Mouser -- Partners/Best Friends
Mouser: C’mon! Keep up!

Birdo: I’m coming!

Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds

Broque Monsieur/Broque Madame -- Separated Couple

Mouser: Roadblock!

Flurrie/Doopliss -- Actress/Actor
Doopliss: You do it!

Flurrie: Okay…

Birdo/Mouser -- Partners/Best Friends
Birdo: I’ll do it!

Mouser: Gotcha!


Raini: They’re all here now.

Hammer: It’s a final challenge…

Madame: I ‘ope ‘e can finish fast!

Bruce: Yeah…But man, this is tough!

Doopliss: Yeah. I’ve tried Picross before. It ain’t easy…

Mouser: Really? Doesn’t look so hard to me!

Birdo/Mouser -- Partners/Best Friends
Snufit: That’s incorrect. You’ve incurred a penalty!

Birdo *bleep*

Mouser: What did you do?!

Birdo: I screwed up! Don’t worry! I got it now!

Mouser: …

Flurrie/Doopliss -- Actress/Actor
Flurrie: Oh gosh…This is hard…

Doopliss: Just do it!

Flurrie: I’ll get it! Sit tight!

Hammer Bro./Boomerang Bro. -- Partners
Boomerang: This…yeah…It’s all coming together…This row is done…this row is done…It’s a globe! Cool!

Broque Monsieur/Broque Madame -- Separated Couple
Monsieur: Almost done! Almost done!

*Smash smash smash*

Monsieur: Just a little more!

Bombette/Bruce -- Newly Dating
Bombette: Mnn…I love puzzles, but this is difficult…

Bruce: Keep going, hon!

Bombette: I will!! Don’t worry, I won’t give up!

*High speed shot*

Raini: They’ve been at it for hours…

Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
Raz: D’OH!! Another penalty! I’m not very good at this…

Raini: Man, oh, man…

Birdo/Mouser -- Partners/Best Friends
Birdo: There’s too many numbers…I don’t like thinking smart…

Mouser: …

Birdo: I do this one?


Snufit: No!

Birdo: URGHH!!!

Phil: ……..I’m pleased to tell you however that this is a non-elimination leg!

Mouser: AW, YEAAAHHH!!!

Phil: …and you are still in the race!


Birdo: Oh gosh….I thought for sure we were out…


Phil: That’s the good news. On the next leg of the race you will encounter a Speed Bump. This extra task is one that only you have to perform…so that may set you back a bit.

Birdo: It’s okay! We’ll do it!

Mouser: Woo!!!

***Birdo: After that fiasco…with the Picross…I thought that we were out for sure!

***Mouser: But I gotta hand it to her! She didn’t give up! She kept going, and now we still have a chance to win!

***Birdo: Yeah! We’re just gonna keep fighting and fighting!
