Cut to Sam with the music coming out of her earphones covered by hair. She looks bothered and puts her hand to it.
|Music||[Throughout.] Ember... you will remember... [Cut to Tucker, looking at his PDA happily.]|
|Tucker||Good thing they also work as wireless earphones, because these things [Looks at them with scorn.] are a fashion [Puts his hand on his earphone.] “don’t”.|
|Cut to Danny, talking behind him.|
|Danny||They’re not supposed to look good. [Strains. Zoom out and rotate to reveal Klemper hugging him tightly.

|Crowd||[Throughout.] Ember! Ember! Ember!|
|Cut to Ember, holding her hands tightly on the edge of the balcony, smiling with the adoration. She leans back, holding out her fists as her body begins to glow all green and her blue hair surges to life.
Cut to Ember from farther, glowing with a heavy green energy with her flaming hair standing as tall as she is. It dies down for only a second to flare up with twice the height it was before.
Cut to a poster on a brick wall showing Ember holding her guitar by the neck in one hand while screaming into the microphone, surrounded by blue flames. It reads “EMBER LIVE!”. Danny and Sam phase invisibly through it. They resume color shortly.
Cut to Danny. He looks down with determination.
|Danny||Something tells me they’re not gonna love seeing their idol sucked inside [Looks to Sam.] the Fenton Thermos.|
|Pan right to Sam. She looks to Danny with a plan.|
|Sam||I think I can distract them.|
|Cut to Ember, looking down with her flaming hair.
Cut to the whole store with all four of the floors containing cheering teenagers worshiping their idol and shouting “Ember! throughout. Ember’s picture is on the screen below the balcony on which she stands, her hair flaring up to nearly four times her height.
Cut to the cheering crowd pumping their fists. Their cheering stops as they all gasp and look to the left.
Cut to Sam hanging on the hair frond of a cardboard cutout of Ember, holding a red marker in her hand as red markings of glasses, a mustache and a goatee have been drawn on Ember’s cardboard face. Sam leans back, admiring her “art”.
Cut to Sam with her marker on the cutout. She shouts down to the crowd below.
|Sam||Hey everybody! [Close-up on Sam.] Look, it’s Ember McLame!|
|Cut to an angry Ember with a waning fire ponytail. It shortens to a tiny flare. She looks up at it with disappointment.|

|Cut to Ember’s gloved hand turning one of the dials on her guitar to a symbol with three purple crescents. The crescents light up in sequence and beep.

Cut to Danny, popping into the shot.

|Cut to Ember, floating up into the shot as she holds her guitar at the ready.|
|Ember||How about I just lay down a few power chords instead, [She raises her hand with a pick to strum.] dipstick! [She strums. A green sound-wave with skulls lining it comes out panning right as a power chord is sounded out.]|
|Cut to Danny floating in front of Ember’s banner. He has a strap on his suit and reaches out behind him to take out the Fenton Thermos, trying to screw off the lid. But as he does, he looks increasingly concerned as the power chord with skulls knocks him away with the Fenton Thermos flying in the other direction.
Cut to a shocked Sam still hanging on the Ember cutout. She turns to the left as the Fenton Thermos’s strap catches itself around Ember’s ear.
Cut to the ear of the cutout with the Fenton Thermos hanging like an earring next to Ember’s two pink ones.
Cut to the real Ember floating near the ceiling. She straightens up and giggles evilly as she strums again, this time her blue hair wraps all around her in a flame spiral as she vanishes from view. The spiral thins away into nothing. Danny flies in just as Ember is gone, turning around as he looks for her.
Cut to the crowd of teens, still cheering on their teen idol, who has clearly given them a sweet show of special, ghostly effects.
Cut to the roof with a purple sky. We see various roof props, including vents and a door that likely leads to a staircase. Danny phases through the roof and up top, resuming his color. Zoom out to reveal Ember floating in front of him, her guitar hanging behind her back.
Cut to Danny.
|Danny||“Dipstick”? [Smiles falsely.] Ho ho. [Returns to serious.] Funny. [He flies off.]|
|Cut to a miffed Ember. Danny flies up, linking his fingers with hers in an attempt to wrestle her down. Their hands shake with effort.|

Cut to the inferno of Ember’s hair. Pan down to show Ember grinning ear to ear.
Cut to Ember from behind as Danny, who is still clasped in her fingers to push her down, is looking increasingly unsure. Ember pushes her arms forward, with Danny barely able to defend as he becomes more worried, grunting with effort.
Close-up on Danny, perspiring under the effort.
|Danny||Chanting... [Blinks, looking to Ember.] makes her stronger...|
|Ember||You got that right, baby pop. And the more kids chanting [Cut to Ember from behind with an overwhelmed Danny. She flings him away to the right with only one hand, turning around as her hair flares up.] the stronger I get!|
|Cut to Danny flying through the air, yelling. He is upside-down as he looks from the ground to behind him, panning right as the cutout comes into view. He hits the back of the head, snapping a rope that keeps it up, grunting in pain. The cutout falls over, revealing Danny looking down at it.
Cut to the edge of the roof. The cardboard cutout lands face-down with the hips keeping it on the roof, the torso, arms and head are hanging off it.
Cut to the feet of the cutout as they stumble as settle with dust clouds rising.

When my concert goes global. [Ember's eyes narrow.] And the whole world’s chanting my name! [Cut to Ember floating above a scared Danny.] Then you’ll all [Raises her arm.] be my slaves!|
|As she says her last word, she strums another power chord, unleashing a red sound wave that knocks Danny away screaming.
Cut to the crease between the cardboard cutout’s legs. Danny screams as he lands in that crease with his back to the ground. A flash of light emits from the crease as he lands.
Cut to the door on the roof. It opens, revealing Sam with the Fenton Thermos.

Cut to the hips of the cutout. Danny gets up out of it, one hand on the thigh of the cardboard and the other hand on his head, sparkling with confusion.
Cut to Ember floating, looking to the left as Sam walks into the shot. Ember faces Sam as Sam turns to her, holding out the Fenton Thermos.
Cut to Ember with a dreamy look.
|Ember||Aw, teen love! [Looks rather upset.] They say it never lasts [Cut to an angry Sam with the Fenton Thermos, the Fenton Phones, and Danny sitting inside the space between the cutout’s legs, confused and awkward.] but nothing distracts teenagers more than [Sam’s eyes pop open wide.] hormones. [Cut to Ember.] And I need [Narrows her eyes.] to keep you busy [She looks down.] for the next eight hours...|
|Pan down to Ember’s guitar. She picks at a dial.
Cut to the dial. The symbols show a red version of two conjoined eighth notes, a pink heart, a green skull, a purple wave of three crescents, and a blue fist. The dial is on the wave where Ember left it. She switches it to the heart, which begins to glow.
|Ember||I have more than just music for you. [Close-up on Ember.] Now that they’re chanting my name [Zoom out.] my music [Raises her hand.] CAN affect you! [She strums her guitar casually, raising her leg as a pink wave full of hearts surges from her strings with a power chord.] How about a love song?|
|Cut to a shocked Sam with the thermos. As the wave passes over her and fills the screen with pink, she braces herself for impact, screaming as she is blown away.
Cut to Danny in the full force of the love wave. His eyes open revealing pink circle loops as Sam flies over him, continuing to scream.
Cut to the head of the cutout hanging precariously over the edge of the roof. Sam is shouting and sliding on it with the Fenton Thermos in hand.
Cut to a shot of Sam on the cutout over a crowd outside the store and rushing traffic in the street below. She stops on her hands and knees, looking down with absolute terror as the cutout begins to shift under her weight of the impact.
Cut to Danny in the pink wave with his eyes all pinked out. He blinks as his eyes resume their blue color, with sparkles flowing up as he gives an absent, rather goofy and dreamy grin.
Cut to Sam from behind looking at Danny. Danny turns to face Sam with two rivers of hearts flowing upward.
Close-up on Danny with the heart, blinking dreamily.
Cut to a shocked Sam. She lowers her eyebrow nervously.

|Ember||Well, I think I’ll leave the new couple alone. [Cut to Ember floating, holding her hand up to say good bye.] Ciao, babies! [She crouches down and turns an intangible blue, phasing through the roof in a blaze of fire as her evil laughter echoes throughout.]|
|Cut to Sam on her hands in knees as the cutout teeters.|
|Sam||“New couple”? [Looks skeptical.] What the heck is she talking about?|
|Cut to Danny in the crease between the legs with his two heart rivers still flowing. He crawls closer to the corner of the crease and climbs onto the cutout.
Cut to a confused Sam teetering.
|Sam||Uh, Danny? Now would be a real good time to [Lifts her hand.] go ghost and fly me out of here.|
|Danny doesn’t listen. Cut to Sam on the edge of the cutout as Danny, against all rhyme and reason, climbs closer from the foreground.|
|Cut to the legs of the cutout, beginning to tip over slowly with the extra weight.|
|Close-up on a scared Sam.|
|Sam||Danny, wait! [Zoom out as Sam reaches out her hand.] What are you doing?|

|Danny||[Dreamily.] Wow. I just never realized [Cut to Danny crawling toward Sam at the edge of the cutout over flowing traffic below. Horns honk.] you’re really pretty [Stops crawling.] when you’re about to fall off a building.|
|Cut to Sam, still scared.|
|Sam||Danny? [Looks down below.] Get back! [Begins to sink down.] Danny!!!|

|Cut to Danny, with his hair flung back by wind. He puts his hand forward.|
|Danny||But you’re over there [He lowers his eyes dreamily as he puts his palm near his chest.] and I’m over here. I wanna be [Points.] over there!|
|Cut to Sam.|
|Sam||Wait, I know that look. That’s that same, longing puppy-dog stare you give Paulina!|
|Cut to Danny, smitten by sparkles.|
|Danny||[Crawling forward dreamily.] Who’s Paulina?|
|Cut to Sam, pleased.|
|Sam||That’s a pleasant side-effect.|
|Cut to a pleased Sam on the edge as Danny, slumping his shoulders, takes another step closer. The balance further tips to Sam’s side. Sam suddenly flicks back to painful reality and screams.
Cut to the dreamy Danny with the sparkles. He puts his palms up forward, curling his fingers once.
Pan down to Danny’s legs. He takes another precarious step and the cardboard tilts more.

|Cut to Jasmine and Danny. Jasmine’s arms are crossed, but Danny’s too infatuated with his green sparkles to care.|

|Danny||She’s too strong. If I could just stop the crowd from chanting. [Cut to the crowd pumping their hands in the air. Pan across it to the right. Off-screen.] Something horrible that will break the spell [Close-up on Danny, looking back.] Like... [Cut to Danny. Pan left as he turns back to Sam and Tucker backstage.] Sam kissing Dash! [Cut to Tucker with his dreamy smile. Zoom in on him. Cut to Danny. He’s smirking and holding a microphone.] Or worse. [Zoom out as Danny prepares to chuck the microphone.] Tucker, sing!

|Mr. Lancer||No doubt due to the rampant late-night carousing prior to test day.|
|Cut to Lancer as he holds up a loose-leaf paper with red pen reading “100 A+”.|
