|Open on Vlad's mansion in Wisconsin. Zoom in and fade throughout the mansion leading to Vlad's lab. Zoom in to Vlad's Ghost Portal, fading into the Skeleton Key floating in a glass case.|
|Vlad||(Off-screen.) Ah, there you are. The legendary Skeleton Key.|
|Cut to Vlad Plasmius, his arms crossed as he floats towards the key. A portal is seen behind him.|
|Vlad||With it, I can open any door, travel to any realm, free any prisoner.|
|As Vlad floats towards the Skeleton Key a large ghost appears in front of him, blocking him from accessing the key. It roars at Vlad. Cut to Vlad from above, arms crossed and unfazed.|
|Vlad||And if you’re the only thing standing between me and that…|
|Cut to Vlad from behind, looking upon the face of the monstrous ghost that fills the screen. It claps two of its hands together, squishing Vlad. Cut to a wider shot of the Behemoth. It looks at its hands and smiles triumphantly, only to change to a look of confusion as it opens its hands to find them empty.
Pan left to an empty part of the Ghost Zone. Vlad fades back into the visible spectrum, arms crossed. He raises his eyebrow, giving the monster a challenging look. Angry, the Behemoth leans forward, opens its mouth wide, and a fires a large purple beam towards Vlad.
Cut to Vlad. He sweeps up, forming a shield in front of himself and relaxing with his arms crossed as the flames go around his shield. The beam then stops blazing, and Vlad’s shield shrinks and goes away.
Cut to the Behemoth. It reaches out off-screen with its upper pair of arms, bringing Vlad over to it. Cut to Vlad, trapped in the monster's hands. He laughs.
|Vlad||This is going to be a snap!|
|Vlad’s shape turns all white. It lifts up in a flame that swirls in a circle and vanishes with a pop.
Cut to the monster confused, looking down at his empty hands.
Cut to the monster's abdomen. A flash of white light appears and takes Vlad’s shape. He bends down and charges his left hand with pink energy, turning sharply and uppercutting the monster. The monster roars and is knocked back, flying off-screen with the force of the punch.
Cut to Vlad. He creates three clones, the camera panning right with each new clone.
Cut to the Behemoth sliding to a stop. It opens its eyes, clenches its fists and roars at Vlad.
Cut to Vlad and his clones as they each prepare a different method of attack. The four Vlads spring into action. The first Vlad swirls its lasso and throws it off-screen. The second Vlad shoots off eye beams. The third Vlad shoots off a hand beam, and the fourth Vlad also uses eye beams.
Cut to the Behemoth as it attempts to dodge the ecto blasts, barely missing two of them before being caught in the lasso. It struggles against the restraints. One of the Vlads grinning at the captured Behemoth before turning his attention to the unprotected Skeleton Key case. The remaining three Vlads (now all holding the Behemoth using the ecto-energy lasso) pull it closer to them as the fourth Vlad charges towards the Skeleton Key.
Cut to the Behemoth struggling against the rope and, pushing all four arms outwards, it finally managing to break free. It bends its body and flips its tail towards the fourth Vlad.
Cut to Vlad smiling with evil glee as he flies swiftly downward, almost within arm's reach of the key. The Behemoth's tail swings into view, coming between Vlad and the key. It whips forward and hits Vlad dead-on.
Cut to Vlad's portal in his lab as he flies through it. He bounces off of a lab bench, knocking everything off, and lands with a grunt against a wall. Vlad glares angrily towards the portal. The other three Vlads come out of the portal, flying uncontrollably towards the first Vlad. The three other Vlads fly into the sitting Vlad’s chest area, a flash of light coming out of his chest and soon enveloping the corner in pink light.
Cut to the Plasmius Portal. The Behemoth’s head pops through the tiny portal. It tries to get its whole body through the portal but quickly stops struggling when it realizes it wont fit. The Behemoth looks forward, growling at Vlad. Vlad stands up.
|Vlad||Very well, Behemoth. (Lifts his hands and they glow.) No more Mr. Nice Plasmius.|
|Vlad storms forward, fists glowing pink with energy, towards the portal where the Behemoth’s head is still plugging the portal. He raises his hands to attack.
Cut to a flashing green light, the rotating alarm kind. It dings. Zoom out to reveal a device with a black screen that reads “Change Ecto-filtrator” in green letters. Below that is a gauge with four sections, under the green one reads “empty” in red letters, the section turns to light red, redder and deep red where the black arrow is pulsing. Below the deep red section reads “full” in red letters. There is also a clear, cylindrical container with green ectoplasm and some bubbles. As the alarm rotates, the screen turns from normal purple to green.
Cut to Vlad and the Behemoth as they both stare confused at the Ecto-filtrator. The monster flashes a cheeky, knowing smile at Vlad and pops its head back through the portal.
Cut to Vlad, looking at the ecto-filtrator.
|Vlad||“Change the ecto-filtrator”? (raises his fists) Aww, (Lowers his arms with frustration.) fudge buckets!|
|Vlad closes his eyes and becomes intangible. The screen fills with white.
Cut to a wide shot outside Vlad's castle. An explosion comes from the middle of it and it surges upward, breaking off parts of the house. It’s left only with the lower floor and two small streams of smoke smolders as debris falls.
Cut to a cloud. It dissipates to reveal an intangible, frustrated Vlad standing in the ruined lab filled with debris, an exposed wire and a fallen shaft is seen in the foreground. Vlad becomes visible again, he lets his arms relax as he looks around. Zoom out to show the whole, ruined place in a middle of a field surrounded by trees, there’s a small puddle of water near some other debris. Some smoke smolders.
Cut to the destroyed lab, smoke covering the screen. It dissipates to show a still intangible Vlad, looking tense with his eyes closed. He turns tangible and opens his eyes as the camera zooms out to show the lab.
|Vlad||Aah! (Close up on Vlad, looking up.) My house!|
|Cut to a part of the lab with broken pipes, panning up to broken stone walls and the sun shining overhead as smoke wisps out of the debris.
Cut to Vlad, holding his cheeks with his fists. He looks down and releases his fists.
|Vlad||I can always buy another one, (Puts his arms down and turns to the right.) but the key!|
|Cut to the lab. It’s all busted and only half the wall is still there. An exposed wire fizzles a little lightning. A broken pipe drips.|
|Vlad||(Off-screen.) I can’t get that key without a portal! (Pan quickly right to show that the portal is half-blown away, the rest an open wall to outside. Smoke smolders from a tip from what is left of the shell. There’s a small room behind the portal, but it’s half-blown away and filled with cracks.)|
|Zoom in on the portal. Small beams of blue lightning fizzle inside it.
Cut to Vlad, arms hanging in exasperation.
|Vlad||I’ll need to find another working one...|
|His red eyes pop wide with realization. He squares his shoulders and smirks, a black ring going over his body and changing him to Vlad Masters. He looks into his suit, lifts the left side with his hand and uses the other arm to reach inside and pull out a photograph. He looks at it with a toothy grin.
Cut to the photo in his hand. It was taken at the college reunion where we first met Vlad. In the photo Vlad is holding Maddie close with one arm and pushing Jack away with the other. Maddie is smiling nervously and confused at Vlad, Jazz is smiling at the camera, Danny is glaring at Vlad and Jack is looking confused.
Close up on Vlad, looking down.
|Vlad||I guess I’ll just have to take Jack Fenton's !|
|Cut to the photo again, just the part with Maddie with Vlad holding her toward him with his hand on her arm, Jazz just looking with a casual smile. Vlad laughs manically off-screen throughout. Pan left to the part where Danny looks at him with irritation and Jack is being pushed away by Vlad. Zoom in on Jack’s face.
The screen fades to black.
Fade in to Casper High School.
|Danny||(Off-screen.) Thanks for driving me to school today, Jazz.|
|Cut to Danny and Jasmine walking. People are at their lockers in the background.|
|Jazz||No problem, Danny.|
|Danny||Yeah, sometimes it’s nice to avoid the bus-- (Danny flings his arm back, closing his eyes, there are no more people behind them.) --and quietly and anonymously-- (Danny puts his hand down and his eyes roll to Jazz.) --slip into school.|
|Danny and Jazz blink and look up in surprise as the screen flashes normal to red over an over.|
|P.A.||Ghost alert. (Cut to a P.A. box on the ceiling. Two red alarm lights flash.) Ghost alert.|
|Cut to Danny and Jazz, along with some other students looking up in surprise. Jazz looks at Danny, Danny looks at her.|
|Jazz||Danny! (Jazz drops her book and grabs her brother by the shirt, he turns forcefully and his shoes are turned just above the floor.) Hide!|
|Cut to Danny, being held by Jazz’s hands.|
|Cut to Jazz, looking confused.|
|Jazz||Um… (Looks down with a fake smile.) That’s an excellent question!|
|Cut to Danny being held by Jasmine. She releases him, and he lands on the floor safely, both turning to the left as if nothing happened. Zoom out. Tucker and Sam walk up, seen from the back.
Cut to Danny.
|Danny||What’s going on?|
|Cut to Tucker and Sam.|
|Sam||Didn't you get the memo? (Sam holds up the memo) The school’s-- (Sam looks up and shrugs, Tucker looks at her and smiles.) --running ghost drills now.|
|Cut to Jazz.|
|Cut to the four. Danny, Jazz and Tucker look at Sam. She points her right finger and the other three turn to look. Cut to Mr. Lancer walking the halls as onlookers look at him with incredulity. Mr. Lancer is wearing a hideous purple horned mask and is holding his hands above his head.|
|Mr. Lancer||Oooooh...I am a ghost!|
|Cut to Jazz. She points up a finger.|
|Jazz||Who’s that supposed to fool?|
|Jazz suddenly blinks with unpleasant surprise and closes her hand.|
|Cut to Jazz and Danny. Jazz retains her pose; Danny is on the left looking with shock to the left with his red book under his arm and his palm open on his other hand. Jazz leans backward and gasps as Jack wearing the Fenton Peeler slides backwards from the left onscreen, covering his children. He is holding the memo in his left hand. He turns right and points his right hand, Danny turns behind his father with his arm crossing over his chest.|
|Jack||I just got the memo! (Close up on Jack in the helmet. His eyes shift around.) And I know there are ghosts around here!|
|Cut to Jazz behind her father’s arm.|
|Jazz||Dad! (Closes eyes.) No!|
|Cut to Tucker and Sam, looking shocked. Danny walks up in front of them with his book and his hand out in front of him.|
|Danny||It’s not a ghost! (Half-closes his eyes and closes his palm.) It’s an out-of-shape teacher in a mask!|
|Cut to Jack, looking down, his eyes to the left.|
|Jack||We’ll see about that, son. (Clenches his eyes shut and yells.) EAT GHOST PEELER, SPOOK!|
|Cut to a turquoise action background. Jack’s hand is on the handle of the peeler. His thumb gets off two red buttons and presses a button on the back, which beeps. A ball of green light surges from the space. It shoots out a huge beam, the screen flashes white.
Cut to Lancer in his hideous mask, his arms out in shock. Three teenage onlookers witness without a care. The green beam hits Lancer and causes him to glow green all over, he tenses his arms in front of him.
|Cut to Lancer’s hideous mask. Lancer screams throughout as it peels off his face and is blown away in shreds. Pan down to his shirt, it tears off him and reveals his hairy, not-so-manly chest covered in an undershirt. Pan down to his plaid pants. They peel away and reveal pink boxers covered with little faces of William Shakespeare. The green light dissipates and he stops glowing, revealing his fat, his white undershirt, his pink boxers, and his hairy legs with support socks. He stops screaming.
Cut to Lancer looking completely shocked, looking down on his almost naked self. Four teens, one on each side, laugh heartily. Lancer reaches to the left off-screen and holds a golden-framed portrait of George Washington in a red military-style coat. He holds it in front of his underpants, full of fury.
Cut to a crowd of five laughing teens.
|Student||(Pointing a finger.) I’ll never respect his authority again!|
|Cut to Danny and Jazz, standing next to Jack’s rather large, peeler-covered arm. Danny’s face is buried in his palm. Jazz looks up in futility with a “Please let this be over” pose. She opens her eyes and sighs.
Zoom out to show Jack. He is looking with his peeler-arm down, hand still on the trigger. Danny puts his hand down and looks at his father, dejected.
Cut to Jack.
|Jack||Wow, (Looks down and smiles.) he is out of shape.|
|Cut to Jack, his eyes looking down to the left. An irked Lancer walks up from the right holding the portrait. Jack’s eyes turn to him.
Cut to Lancer.
|Mr. Lancer||I can’t give you detention, but someone named “Fenton” is staying after school.|
|Cut to Danny, Jasmine and Jack, looking with concern.|
|Jack and Jazz||(Exchanging glances.) Whoa! (Both take out non-watch-covered wrists and look at them.) Look at the time!|
|Jack and Jazz smile and rush away, leaving Danny, whose hair is blown back with the wind. He flips his head and shrugs. Zoom in on his blank “Ugh, not again,” expression.
Fade in to FentonWorks. Zoom in.
Fade in to a top view of the lab. It’s a mess. Jack is sitting on a swivel chair, holding the Fenton Peeler in one hand and his other one on the messy counter, looking rather irked at Jazz and Maddie. Jazz trying to reason with Jack and Maddie looking with her hood up. Zoom in as Jazz reaches her arms out.
|Jazz||All I’m saying is you might want to think twice before you barge in like that. You really got Danny in trouble.|
|Cut to Jack. He is holding the Fenton Peeler in his hand.|
|Jack||Oh yeah,-- (Jack raises a fist, pointing his thumb over his shoulder.) --you think he’s in trouble now!|
|Cut to various shots of the messy lab. The lab benches and everything on them are covered in ectoplasm and the garbage can is overflowing with rotten food and papers. Jazz and Maddie look around at the green-coated mess.|
|Jack||Look at this place! Danny hasn't cleaned the lab in weeks, and the beakers are caked with goo and-- (Jack pauses, looking intently to the left. Whispers.) --would you look at that.|
|Cut to next to the Fenton Portal. There is a device leading from the portal, overflowing past the fill point with ectoplasm as it pools on the lab floor. Pan to show the Ecto-filtrator status box, flashing and beeping a warning signal as the arrow on the meter hovers over "full."|
|Jack||(Off-screen) The ecto-filtrator hasn't been changed in six months. That can't be good.|
|Danny walks into the lab lugging his backpack, overflowing with books.|
|Danny||And it’ll be six more by the time I get done with all this extra work Lancer assigned me.|
|Danny dumps his heavy backpack on the floor with a thud. Jack looks at it in surprise.|
|Danny||Dad,-- (Cut to Danny, rubbing the back of his neck with his hand. He looks up.) --are you familiar with the term (Glares and drops his arm.) “Stay away from my school”?|
|Cut to Jack and Maddie. Jack is holding the peeler, looking completely clueless. Maddie is leaning in front of him.|
|Maddie||Sweetie, relax. (she pulls off her hood) You know your dad loves you, and he doesn’t mean to make your life more difficult.|
|A news theme plays, and a woman starts talking. Maddie turns her eyes to see where the sound is coming from.|
|Harriet||(offscreen) The hunt is on for the ghost boy!|
|Cut to a wide shot with the whole Fenton family.|
|Danny and Jack||What?|
|Cut to an ectoplasm-covered TV on a messy, ectoplasm-covered lab bench. The news is on. Harriet Chin is the news anchor, holding a stack of papers with a yellow box over the shoulder reading “Eye on Amity” in black letters.|
|Harriet||As a result of today’s false ghost alert at Casper High, the need for competent,--|
|TV image fades to a video of the incident at Casper High. Jack is in the Fenton Peeler armor with the gun smoldering green smoke facing Lancer looking annoyed, covering himself with a portrait of George Washington. Students in the background are laughing hysterically, one of them is actually on the floor laughing.|
|Harriet||--non-Jack Fenton ghost hunters in Amity Park has never been more obvious.|
|Cut to Jack, holding the Peeler. He’s smiling.|
|Jack||Hey, they said my name! (Leans back, confused.) Need for competent ghost hunters? (Looks up and thinks.) Hm, (looks down at the peeler and points his finger at it.) what is that supposed to mean?|
|He pushes a button. It beeps and the Peeler sends out a burst of green goo, completely covering his face. He straightens up as the goo drips onto him the gun smoldering green goo.
Cut to the TV. Harriet is onscreen.
|Harriet||Luckily, a mysterious benefactor has offered a million dollar bounty (screen cuts to a picture of Danny Phantom flying) on the head of Amity Park's most famous ghost (screen cuts back to Harriet) and hired the world's best known ghost hunters to track him down.|
|Cut to Danny, Maddie and Jazz. Jazz is on the right with her arms crossed looking rather unsure, Danny has his arms crossed too. Maddie and Danny both turn their heads from the TV screen look at each other with smug glances Jasmine rolls her eyes toward them and smiles.|
|Danny and Maddie||Three, two, one...|
|Jack jumps up holding a bazooka, knocking over stacked boxes overflowing with inventions in the process.|
|Jack||Nobody’s catching that ghost kid but me!|
|Jack walks off-screen. The boxes in the other stack start to rattle. They fall down, glass is heard shattering. Jack pops in from the right, pointing a finger at the pile.|
|Jack||(Quietly and quickly.) Danny, clean that up. (Rushes off-screen.)|
|Cut to Maddie, Danny and Jasmine. They all look toward each other, smiling.
Fade in to the sign of the Nasty Burger. Zoom out. A banner is over with doorway and windows reading “Welcome Ghost Hunters”.
|Sam||Danny, aren't you worried? These are the best known ghost hunters in the world!|
|Danny||Sam, (scoffs) the “best-known”, they’re not the “best”.|
|Cut to a trio standing next to their van. Groovy Dude (Andy), Groovy Girl (Fran) and Scaredy Cat. The tiger is shaking, looking paranoid as its eyes shift left and right.|
|Danny||(Off-screen) The Groovy Gang and Scaredy Cat…|
|Scaredy Cat suddenly jumps up onto the girl, and clawing into her chest..|
|Fran||Ah! Like, those are my internal organs, dude!|
|The cat whines again, and they both fall off-screen. Pan to Andy who is staring in shock.|
|Jinkers, Scaredy Cat! You’re like, maiming her!|
|Cut to the street. Two motorized vehicles rev and jump out from behind the trees, sailing in the sky across the clouds.|
|Danny||(Off-screen) Extreme Ghostbreakers…|
|Cut to the Extreme Ghostbreakers riding through the air on their vehicles. They skid to a stop in the Nasty Burger parking lot and high five each other.|
|Sullivan||You da man!|
|Cut to Brenner looking frustrated.|
|Brenner||Actually, idiot, I’m a (whispering) girl.|
|Sullivan||Right! And that’s so (revs engine) EXTREEEME!!|
|Sullivan revs up his front wheel in the air, and it speeds off without him. He lands on his back; the girl looks down at him on her ATV. The male gets his head and chest up by his hands, and the girl looks forward, her ATV revving.
Cut to someone’s white pants and suit, he is holding a gun in his black-gloved hand. Pan up to show an African American man, he has triangular sunglasses and a wire in his ear. He loads his gun and raises it.
|Danny||The government’s ghost hunting squad, Guys in White.|
|Cut to a farther shot of the agents. Sullivan’s motorcycle revs, comes in from the left, circles around the Guys in White, bringing up mud and zooming off-screen.
Cut to the chest of the Caucasian agent. Small patches of mud splash onto his shirt. Zoom out to reveal both agents with shirts dotted with mud; the African-American agent is holding his gun vertically.
|Operative O||(Looking down at his suit.) We have a cleanliness breach in Shoulder section Alpha.|
|Operative O turns his head to his partner.|
|Operative K||I’ll fill out suit cleaning form #87B-Omega.|
|Operative O||I’ll call our immediate supervisor to requisition detergent and fabric softener.|
|Cut to the Guys in White.|
|Operative O||(Both agents reaching into their suits.) Lock the area down!|
|Pan down. The agents drop two glowing, bright-cyan cubes. When they land, they begin to glow.
Cut to a far shot of the Guys in White. A half-spherical light-blue force field forms around them.
Cut to Danny and Sam. They are both smiling.
|Danny||It’s a virtual “who’s who” of who can’t catch ghosts. (Danny’s fingers curl up, his eyes wide open with realization.) Which means he should be-- (Sam stops smiling, Danny slumps his arm down and makes a *sigh* expression.) --arriving any second now.|
|Horns are heard honking. Danny looks to the right, Sam straightens up and looks with him.
Cut to the Nasty Burger. Danny and Sam are just standing in a far corner. The Extreme Ghostbreakers are there, the male with his motorbike and the female standing next to her ATV. They both turn and jump in surprise screaming, then quickly jump to the left off-screen as the Fenton Ghost Assault Vehicle runs their vehicles over.
Cut to Maddie, hood-down, sitting in the passenger seat of the Assault Vehicle.
|Maddie||(Raising her hand to her mouth to call out.) Sorry about that!|
|Zoom out to Jack in the driver’s seat, hands on the wheel.|
|Jack||Wow. (Cut to outside the Assault Vehicle. Jack leans out the window.) You should be careful where you park those things.|
|Cut to Danny, seen from the back with his hands on his hips, smiling as he looks at his parents’ Assault Vehicle. Sam is looking toward the RV as well.|
|Danny||(chuckles) I’ve got nothing to worry about.|
|Tucker walks up to them, carrying a white sheet in his hands.|
|Tucker||Good. Then you won’t have a problem with this. (Tucker unfurls the sheet, it says “BOO-Yea Tours” in green letters. Cut to Danny and Sam with incredulous looks. Cut to Tucker from the front.) Thanks to Danny,-- (Tucker puts on the sheet) --we know the location of every ghost sighting in Amity Park. Tucker Foley’s Boo-Yea Ghost Tours is bound to be a hit. (Reaches out with his arms toward the camera.) Boo-Yea!|
|A blast of green, glowing goo completely covers Tucker from the left. He shouts out in surprise and braces himself for the impact. He lifts his goo-coated hands and looks down at them.
Cut to Sam with her arms crossed.
|Sam||In retrospect, maybe dressing like a ghost in a parking lot full of ghost hunters wasn’t a great idea.|
|Cut to the lot. Danny and Sam are standing next to the Fenton Assault Vehicle. Jack walks up with a gun in the air, smiling. Sullivan, Fran and Operative K walk up looking angrily at Jack, the men holding weapons of their own. Tucker is seen as a green lump of goo, with his hands out and looking at Jack.|
|Jack||I got him! Me, Jack Fenton! (Close up on Jack.) Danny Fenton’s father!|
|Close up on Danny. First he looks worried, and then his eyes droop down and look bored and disappointed.
Cut to Tucker, pulling off his goo-coated ghost costume. Agent K, Sullivan and Fran are standing around Tucker.
|Tucker||I’m not gonna grow a third arm, am I?|
|The ghost hunters all break out laughing.
Pan out and left to reveal Danny. He lifts his hand to cover his face.
Cut to a shot of Sam and Danny face-palming through some red goggles. It fizzles a little, then shows a whole shot of the crows at the Nasty Burger, Tucker in the center with Jack, Sullivan, Fran and Guy in White near Sam and Danny.
Cut to Vlad Plasmius, looking through a pair of red, pentagonal binoculars.
|Vlad||Dance, you big, dumb puppet, (Puts down the binoculars.) dance.|
|Cut to a shot of Vlad on a building holding his binoculars in one hand. Vlad’s three ghostly vultures are roosting there.|
|Vulture #1||I don’t get it. (Turns head toward Vlad.) If you just wanna steal the portal, why not do it now while the Fentons aren't home?|
|Cut to Vlad.|
|Vlad||Dismantling that portal will take time. And while tearing down the portal, I can tear down young Daniel’s respect for his father. Assuming he has any. (Close up on Vlad, his eyes narrow.) You know what to do.|
|The three vultures swoop down from the rooftop, flying towards the Nasty Burger parking lot. Cut to Danny, face covered by his palm. He quickly removes his hand in surprise as his ghost sense goes off. Cut to an aerial shot of the Nasty Burger. Everyone is scared as a vulture’s legs in the foreground close in. Everyone screams and runs off in different directions.
Cut to Jack by the Assault Vehicle, running away from the vultures flying over him, a bazooka in hand. He ducks down suddenly as the vultures swoop overhead and call out. He stretches his arms out at his sides as Andy, Scaredy Cat and both Guys in White approach from the right.
|Jack||Stand back, everyone! (Cut to Jack.) I’ve got the home field advantage.|
|Pan out. Jack lifts up the Fenton Fisher. He chases two of the vulture ghosts around the parking lot as the other three groups of ghost hunters watch.|
|Cut to Fran. Brenner is on the right.|
|Fran||Like, that’s not the Million Dollar Ghost! (Puts her fists on her hips.)|
|Pan right to the Ghostbreakers.|
|Brenner||Then we should kick back and watch this. It’ll be a riot!|
|Sullivan takes one hand off his gun and does a sign language Y.|
|Sullivan||An extreme riot, dude!|
|Brenner puts her hand on her hip, Sullivan turns to her.|
|Brenner||I’m a girl…|
|Cut to a top view of two vultures flying and calling. They fly off-screen. The sidewalk pans down as Jack runs down it carrying the Fenton Fisher.|
|Jack||All right, ghosts! Prepare to become the Fenton (lifts the Fenton Fisher over his head) catch of the day!|
|Jack thrusts forward and the Fenton Fisher is heard casting off. Cut to the hook flying through the air and catching latching on to one of the vulture ghosts. It turns its head around to examine it, and then is pulled downward to the left as the scene pans down with it. It calls.
Close up on Jack, both arms reaching out. He leans back into the shot and starts reeling in.
|Cut to the Vulture being pulled downward, flapping wings and straining to keep itself flying. It is pulled off-screen, but then flies back on its course.
Cut to Jack, looking up with pride as he reels in the ghost, but yells out as he is pulled forward and is pulled off-screen.
Cut to the street leading to the Nasty Burger. Jack is being dragged by the vulture with his belly to the street as the vulture flies away from the camera toward the establishment.
Cut to Jack, sliding on the ground, hanging on to the Fenton Fisher.
|Jack||I think he’s giving up!|
|Cut to Jack from the side landing on the street, holding the Fenton Fisher. He slides until he lands face-first into the Nasty Burger drive-thru speaker, losing his grip on the fishing pole in the process. Pan up to the head of Nasty Nat, rattling. It falls down, landing on Jack's head.|
|Drive thru||Welcome to Nasty Burger. (Pan out to reveal the Drive Thru speaker. Jack rubs his Nasty Nat-covered head.) Wow. You’re the worst ghost hunter ever.|
|Cut to Jack lying by the drive-thru with the Nasty Nat head on. In the foreground looking on him, left-to-right, is Operative O, Fran, Brenner and Andy. They all turn away from Jack and laugh hysterically, Fran’s hands in her head, Brenner’s hands on her chest.
Pan left to Danny and Sam, overseeing the humiliation.
|Sam||Danny! (Sam turns do Danny, who facepalms again.) Do something!|
|Cut to Danny with his face buried in his hands. Tucker is looking at him from the left.|
|Danny||(Removing his hand.) What do you want me to do? I can’t go ghost here! Besides-- (Cut to Tucker, Danny and Sam.) --nobody’s in any real danger yet, right?|
|A vulture calls. Two of them swoop down from the right and grab Tucker and Sam by their claws, flying to the left past the Nasty Burger sign. Tucker and Sam scream in terror.
Close up on Danny.
|Danny||And, now they are. (He looks to the right, and walks to the left off-screen.)|
|Cut to Danny running past as in the foreground, Sullivan is laughing his hand on his helmet and looking down, Fran is laughing with her hand on her head, Andy is laughing, leaning back with his hands on his stomach. Pan left. Danny looks at the ghost hunters cautiously as they laugh, tiptoeing on his course. Scaredy Cat and Operative O as also laughing as Danny walks behind the corner of the Nasty Burger.
Cut to Danny running up from behind the Nasty Burger. He stops as a ring of light forms around him.
Cut to Danny’s legs. The ring passes over him and sinks into the ground, becoming white boots and black pants.
Cut to Danny’s fists high in the air. Rings pass over each one and dissipate, leaving white-gloved hands in their wake.
Cut to Danny from behind as the rings pass over him. Zoom in on the back of his neck, his hair is now all white. Rotate the shot to see Danny’s face. Zoom out to show all of Danny Phantom. He bends his knees low and takes off flying with his spectral tail up and toward the camera, off-screen.
Cut to the laughing ghost hunters again. Scaredy Cat is leaning with his head on the ground and his tail in the air, hand on his head. Operative O is bending over laughing with hands on his knees.
Pan right as Danny Phantom swoops behind and past the ghost hunters, Andy and Operative K holding a gun up, Fran with her hands together, Brenner holding a gun in one hand and the other hand on her cheek. Maddie is looking concerned down at Jack, who is still on the ground. The Agent, Fran and the Ghostbreaker's devices beep, being the Agent and Ghostbreaker's watches and Fran’s device in her hands. They and the Fentons look in surprise.
Cut to the three ghost hunters with beeping devices.
|Cut to Jack, still on the ground. Maddie is comforting him with her hands on his shoulder.|
|Jack||Aw,-- (Jack’s eyes look down in dejection, Maddie looks at him, worried.) --quit mocking me.|
|Cut to Danny, flying with two fists up and a look of utmost determination, a ghostly tail cascading under him.
Cut to Danny in the foreground, seen from behind. The shot zooms in to Sam and Tucker being held in the talons of the two vultures.
Cut to Danny flying. Zoom in on him. He stops flying and starts gagging as a black-gloved hand grabs him by the neck and chokes him, Danny’s tongue sticking out. He is pulled off-screen with many puffs of smoke.
Cut to a shot of the city, with one building still only a few girders being on construction. Danny falls in from the right and falls away from the camera, landing on the roof of a building on his back and arms, debris flies as he lands.
Cut to Danny. He lifts the top of his body on his hands and bends one of his knees up.
Close up on Danny.
|Cut to Danny’s head from behind in the foreground. Vlad is seen floating above him, his cape blowing in the wind and one finger on his chin.|
|Danny||What are you doing here?|
|Cut to Vlad. He tilts back his head and taps his chin.|
|Vlad||Well let’s see, (Puts his finger forward.) your father looks like a fool, (Uncurls a second finger.) there’s a million dollars on your head, (Puts down his arms and leans forward a little.) What do you think I’m doing here?!|
|Cut to Danny in a fighting stance. He bends his knees and takes flight to the right with his ghostly tail, and flies closer to the camera and off-screen.
Cut to Vlad. He leans back a hand and then thrusts forward with it, the palm starts to glow pink. Zoom out. The pink energy becomes a pink square of glass. Danny slams face-first into it, his arms slam up on it. He grunts in pain and slides off of it.
Cut to Danny, tumbling in the air. He slowly regains his stability and floats in place, his arms and legs out.
Cut to Danny. His eyes open. He turns quickly to the left and looks down.
Cut to an aerial shot of the street below. The Guys in White are scanning a turquoise car with two metal detectors, Andy is carrying a panicking Scaredy Cat in his arms while Fran looks at him with her hands on her hips, the Ghostbreakers skate past on skateboards holding high green butterfly nets.
|Danny||So you hired these idiots?|
|Cut to Vlad.|
|Vlad||Yes. (Vlad raises a hand with curled fingers and looks at it.) Every idiot-- (Vlad closes his eyes and his hand starts glowing pink.) --except your father.|
|Cut to a farther shot, Danny is seen from the back, floating in a fighting stance. Vlad is far off in the same position, a pink glass flyswatter materializes in a flash of white light.|
|Vlad||He’s a free idiot.|
|Vlad thrusts his glowing hand forward, turning right. The flyswatter hits Danny and he falls off-screen.
Cut to Danny, falling back again. The screen pans left as Danny lands on his back on the roof of a building again.
Cut to Danny. He gets up, leaning on one hand, one knee is bent upwards, and he buries the side of his face in his other hand. He takes his hand away and turns to the left, looking down to a voice from off-screen.
|Sam and Tucker||(Off-screen) Danny, help!|
|Danny gets up quickly and rushes off.
Cut to the ledge of the building. Danny puts his hands on the ledge and looks down, gasping. Zoom out. Tucker and Sam, being held by the talons of the vultures, scream as they fly closer toward the camera. The vultures release the kids, and they scream as they fall off-screen.
Cut to a dumpster, the top is up, it’s filled with refuse. Tucker and Sam land feet-first into the mess, displacing many cans and other trash items, flying out of the dumpster. The lid slams down on them.
Cut to Danny with hands on the ledge, looking down. He looks up to the right.
|Danny||As much as I’d enjoy catching up, (Bends his hands and takes off with many puffs of smoke.) Plasmius,-- (Cut to Danny flying with with his fists up and his ghostly tail cascading below him.) --shouldn't you be getting home to the love of your life?|
|Cut to Vlad with two glowing fists. He lunges one arm forward and sends out an energy beam, then lunges the one in the back forward, the screen turning white with energy.
Cut to Danny, flying.
|Danny||Oh,-- (Danny giggles, and he swoops around Vlad’s energy beam, getting closer to the camera. He stops in a fighting stance, more beams blast off behind him.) --that’s right! Dad married the love of your life. (Danny flies off-screen. Close up on Danny.) You’re bitter and alone!|
|Danny moves away from the camera, bringing one hand back. He turns to punch, but his gloved hand is caught by Vlad’s black-gloved hand. Danny screams as it glows and convulses with pink electric energy.
Zoom out. Danny is being held by Vlad, convulsing in the shock and screaming. Vlad is floating carelessly with a hand behind his back.
|Vlad||(Leaning back his head.) Oh please, Daniel. (Vlad leans his head forward, Danny’s screams fade away.) Must I actually defeat you with one hand behind my back, before you realize, you’re outmatched!|
|Cut to Danny. Two blue rings form around his body and change his chest, arms and head back to Danny Fenton, the pink electricity subsiding where Danny is Fenton. Suddenly, the electricity stops charging, and Danny sighs with fatigue, the rings closing down and turning his human parts back to Danny Phantom. He leans forward without any energy left, pink sparkles pop around him.
Cut to Danny from the side, being held by Vlad. Vlad looks at Danny and waves a finger.
|Vlad||Ah, ah, ah! (Vlad lifts his arm out, raising his chin and smiling, eyes closed.) We can’t have you pass out, and change back into Danny Fenton,-- (Vlad puts down his arm and looks down at Danny.) --now can we?|
|Cut to Danny from the side. Vlad’s head comes in from the right, meeting up with his. Vlad’s eyes are closed.|
|Vlad||This might be your father’s party, (Opens his eyes.) but you’re the guest of honor! (Cut to Vlad holding Danny in the sky.) Tah!|
|Vlad throws Danny across his body and casts him off. Danny flies, face and hands forward, screaming as the scene pans left.
Cut to Danny. He is now seen from the back, falling toward a collection of ghost hunters by the Nasty Burger.
Cut to Operative O, standing in front of the Fenton Assault Vehicle.
|Operative O||It’s the million dollar ghost!|
|Zoom out to reveal Sullivan, holding a bazooka.|
|Sullivan||Whoa! Do you know how many extreme jockstraps I could buy with a million dollars?|
|Cut to Danny, falling with his face toward the camera. He’s screaming.
Cut to Maddie, holding a souped-up ghost rifle. She loads it and aims it by her eye as it charges.
Zoom out to reveal Jack. He charges and aims his rifle.
Cut to Sullivan. He kicks up his skateboard, takes it in his hands, and unfolds it. It becomes a weapon with ten beams, five on each side.
Cut to Scaredy Cat. He meows in panic and jumps onto Fran, who braces herself and screams.
Cut to Andy, popping into the scene.
|Andy||Like, how ‘bout a-- (Andy holds up a yellow bag that reads “Kitty Krunch”, waving it back and forth so it crinkles.) --Kitty Krunch?|
|Close up on Scaredy Cat. His eyes narrow and glow reddish with determination. He jumps off-screen.
Cut to the Nasty Burger. Scaredy Cat lands on his paws, leans down, and then gets up and roars.
Cut to Danny, falling and screaming in flash-motion. The screen pans down and left.
Cut to the chest of Operative K. He reaches into his suit and takes out a green pen, and a laser sprouts from it, extending into segments. Zoom out as he holds it up, his finger in front of it.
Cut to Operative O, using an automatic dust roller on his suit. Zoom out as he thrusts it out, it also sprouts a laser shooter and extends into segments.
Cut to the dumpster. Tucker and Sam lift the lid up, Tucker with one hand, Sam with both.
|Tucker||That settles it. (Turns to Sam.) Nasty Burger smells the same before, and after the fact.|
|Sam looks up to the left, worried.
Close up on Sam.
|Cut to a street. Danny lands on the bottom of his palms and tumbles over backwards, grunting in pain and landing on his back in front of the ghost hunters, Fran, Sullivan and Operative O pointing guns at him, Scaredy Cat glaring at him. Guns are heard charging as Jack and Maddie approach into foreground.
Cut to Danny from above, with five guns pointed at him.
|Danny||You know, (Zoom in slowly.) I think I liked it better when they were laughing.|
|Fade to black.
Fade in to a close up of Danny, looking frightened to the left. Zoom out to show he is still on the ground with his arms on the ground,four guns are being pointed at him. Danny shifts his eyes to the right.
Cut to Danny on the ground, surrounded by the legs of Andy and a Ghostbreaker, along with a third gun-holder off-screen. Danny gets up on his elbows with his hands clenched tight, looking up behind him. He relaxes a little and rolls his eyes to the right, panning right as Scaredy Cat steps in and growls in front of him. He rolls his eyes back again.
|Danny||Uh, (Blinks, looks to the right.) um-- (Close up on Danny.) --boo?|
|Close up on Scaredy Cat. He is looking determined, but leans upwards, meowing in fright, teeth chatting and perspiring.
Cut to another shot. Danny is on the ground, looking up at Scaredy Cat, worried. Fran is looking down on him with a menacing glare, but Andy and Sullivan are looking at the cat. Scaredy Cat turns, waving his tail in the air, and jumps off-screen.
Cut to Operative K, holding a bazooka. Zoom out as Scaredy Cat jumps onto him with his paws on the agent’s face, shivering and perspiring, causing the agent to drop the gun.
Close up on the agent, Scaredy Cat’s claws are wedged in his cheek and on his head.
|Operative K||Ow! I have a skin breach on Facial Sector 5.|
|Cut to Danny, sitting on the ground next to the legs of Fran, Andy and Sullivan. He rolls his eyes, turns blue as he goes intangible, and phases butt-first through the concrete.
Cut to the ghost hunters. Sullivan and Andy are looking at Fran, who is holding a handgun.
|Andy||Like, (Turns to Sullivan.) shouldn't we focus on the Ghost Kid? You know, (Turns back to Fran.) before Jack Fenton does something stupid and he escapes?|
|Jack suddenly comes in from the left holding a bazooka, pushing the three ghost hunters away with the sound of glass breaking.|
|Jack||Where is he? (Turns to the left.) Where is he?|
|Close up on Andy, looking all *sigh*.|
|Cut to the Nasty Burger, Jack is standing, holding the bazooka, with the Groovy gang sitting down on the concrete on the right, Sullivan sitting on the concrete on the left. Brenner is still standing. Danny phases up through the concrete from far away, looking back at the ghost hunters.
Cut to Jack. He turns sharply to the left, aiming his bazooka. Pan left to the business end of the bazooka, it glows green and charges.
Cut to Danny, floating and looking frightened. He turns blue and intangible, ducking into the ground.
Cut to Jack, aiming. It stops charging and he puts the gun down, knowing the ghost boy escaped. Pan out to all the ghost hunters. The Ghostbreakers are on the left, the Guys in White are between them and Jack, and the Groovy Gang is on the right, all glaring at Jack.
Cut to the Ghostbreakers to see their glaring faces. Cut to the Guys in White, too. Cut to the Groovy Gang.
Cut to all the ghost hunters in their former position. Jack slumps over, turning off the gun and hanging it vertically, embarrassed and saddened by failure. He walks off.
Fade to FentonWorks. Zoom in.
Fade to the Lab, zooming in. Sam and Tucker are standing there, looking at Danny, who is looking at the portal.
Cut to the Ecto-Filtrator. The arrow is waving wildly, the green light is beeping, and it says “Change the Ecto-Filtrator” in green letters. Danny’s fist comes in from the left and knock on the device. It then goes back off-screen.
Cut to Danny, looking at the filtrator with his arms crossed and looking annoyed, his body is bathed in green light. Sam approaches.
|Sam||Come on, Danny. You can’t tell me-- (Sam rolls her eyes back and lifts her hand, her other hand on her hip. Danny’s eyes look to her.) --the only thing your billionaire arch-enemy is here to do (Crosses her arms.) is embarrass your Dad.|
|Danny looks at the control panel again.
Cut to Tucker, whose shirt is covered in ectoplasm stains.
|Tucker||(Brushing ectoplasm off his sleeve and onto the floor.) And date his mom.|
|Cut to Danny with a hand on the panel, looking back at Sam. the cylindrical tank on the side bubbles. Green light blinks on him.|
|Danny||Yes! That’s exactly why he’s here. (Tucker walks in next to Sam. Danny starts to fiddle with the panel.) To make my dad look like a fool. (Cut to the staircase, Jack walks downstairs happily as Danny continues off-screen. Jack walks toward the camera to the left.) I mean, did you see the way those ghost hunters were laughing at him?|
|Jack stops, looking with sad realization. He blinks a few times.
Cut to Danny looking down at the filtrator, pointing at it. Tucker and Sam are there, looking at him.
|Danny||(Looking up from the filtrator.) How embarrassing!|
|Jack walks up behind Tucker and Sam. Tucker and Sam look up at him with some “uh oh” fear, Danny just looks off to the side.|
|Danny||We’re all gonna have to live with my dad’s goof-ups-- (Danny shrugs, Jack looks upset.) --for the rest of our lives.|
|Tucker and Sam straighten up, Sam pretends to clear her throat. Danny suddenly finds realization.|
|Danny||He’s right behind me, isn't he? (All three look up at Jack. Cut to Jack.)|
|Jack||Yes, (Looks down, disappointed.) I’m afraid he is. (Straightens up.) If you need me, I’ll be upstairs, (Eyes roll downward.) doing something wrong. (Jack turns around and walks off.)|
|Cut to the staircase. Jack walks up them. Pan right to Tucker and Sam. Danny walks in from the right, his friends look at him.|
|Tucker||Nice. (Lifts a hand.) You wanna go upstairs and make your mom cry?|
|Cut to Danny.|
|Danny||Great. (Lowers his eyelids.) I just managed to do Plasmius’ job for him.|
|Cut to Danny, Sam and Tucker. Danny is looking down and depressed, Tucker is just looking at him. Sam puts her hands on her hips.|
|Sam||Well there’s only one thing that’s going to cheer him up: Catching a ghost.|
|Cut to Danny, smiling.|
|Danny||Yeah, (Points a finger.) and not just any ghost.|
|Danny goes ghost and turns into Danny Phantom. He lifts his legs and floats.|
|Danny||Public Ghost Enemy #1.|
|Cut to an aerial shot of the FentonWorks kitchen. Jack is sitting at the table, elbows on the table, his chin in his hands. Cut to Jack.|
|Jack||(Muttering.) Danny’s right. I’m a loser. I couldn't catch a ghost if one sprang right up in front of me.|
|Cut to an aerial shot of Jack at the table. He puts his hands down as Danny phases his blue, intangible head through the table.
Cut to Jack in the foreground as Danny floats up from the table, becomes solid, and waves his arms.
|Danny||Booooo! (Danny pauses and looks at Jack, who is still sitting at the table dejectedly.) Whoo-ooo-ooo! (Cut to Jack, not even remotely fazed. He looks to the right and places a hand on his chin.)|
|Cut to Danny, surprised Jack hasn't made a move. As a last resort, he mimics the Box Ghost.|
|Jack still hasn't moved and Danny lets his hands drop. Cut to Jack. Danny floats in from the left, waving his hand in front of Jack. Jack just looks away.|
|Danny||Hello! (Danny stops waving and curls his fingers into a fist. Pan right. Danny sneaks behind Jack with his ghostly tail and is on his right, raising his arms.) Ghost! (Cut to Jack, looking bored with his chin in his hand. Danny pops in upside down, waving his hand in front of Jack.) Right in front of ya!|
|Jack puts releases his chin and looks at Danny, slightly annoyed.|
|Jack||Aw, what do you want? (Jack puts down his hand and straightens up.) Come to gawk at the big failure, (Buries chin into both hands.) I suppose.|
|Danny floats up off-screen. Cut to Danny, popping up into the screen. He raises his fists with determination. Cut to Danny, floating in front of Jack over the table.|
|Danny||(Pointing at Jack.) Just the opposite,-- (Danny’s head pops up with realization. He then looks back down at Jack.) --Jack. (Cut to Danny, he raises his shoulders and looks with glee.) Cool, I just called my dad by his first name. (He then looks with realization, then goes back into his determined character. Cut to Danny looking at Jack. Jack looks up at Danny.)|
|Jack||You know me?|
|Cut to Danny, floating above the table.|
|Danny||And fear you. That’s why I’ve come to turn myself in-- (Danny points at Jack.) --to you.|
|Cut to Danny looking smugly at Jack, who is looking with total disbelief and annoyance.|
|Jack||(Raising a hand and sweeping it down.) Aw, no thanks, Ghost Kid. (Cut to Jack. He points at himself with his thumb.) I’m tired of getting laughed at! (Jack puts down his hand and looks down, depressed.) I give up.|
|Cut to Danny, leaning inward.|
|Danny||You-you-- you can’t do that!|
|Maddie||(Off-screen) You’re darn right-- (Danny looks scared and turns to look behind him.) --he can’t!|
|Cut to a far shot of Jack at the table and Danny floating over it. A revving is heard as Maddie’s boot steps into the foreground from the left.
Cut to Maddie, hood-up, with the Fenton Weasel strapped over her shoulder and in her left hand. The Fenton Weasel is vibrating and giving off exhaust.
|Maddie||Eat hot Fenton Weasel,-- (Pan right, the Weasel is pointed toward the camera.) --ghost scum!|
|The screen turns blue as air is getting sucked into the Weasel.
Cut to Danny, facing right but looking left as a blue mist is sucking at him. He turns and covers his head with his arms as his foot is being stretched and sucked away, then leans back as his body in ghostly tail form is being sucked that way. He screams as the screen pans left and he gets sucked left toward the camera.
Cut to Maddie, holding the Fenton Weasel. Danny’s ghostly body is sucked inside, his hands struggle to hold onto it to prevent being sucked inside.
Cut to Danny, looking inside as his thumbs are trying to keep him out, parts of his face and hair is being sucked in. He then screams once more as he vanishes inside the weasel with a sucking sound.
Cut to Danny, crammed in the weasel.
|Danny||Okay,-- (Danny looks toward the out pipe of the Weasel.) --this wasn't part of the plan.|
|Cut to Jack sitting by the table with his elbow on it, his chin in his hand, looking up and behind him. Maddie walks in from the left, holding the containment part of the Weasel toward Jack and the business end in her other hand.|
|Maddie||Jack,-- (Cut to Jack. Maddie sticks a hand in with the containment tank from the left, Jack looks at it.) --you captured the Ghost Boy!|
|Jack looks at it, surprised.|
|Jack||I did? (Close up on Jack, he smiles.) You’re right, I did! (Cut to Jack and Maddie, Maddie holding the weasel and Jack straightening up.) Me! (Jack stands up and takes the Fenton Weasel, spreading his arms with the containment tank on the left and the business end on the right.) Jack Fenton! (Jack walks off, Maddie has her hands on her hips, happy. Cut to Maddie. Jack leans in from the right to her.) You are the best wife ever.|
|He kisses her on the cheek and holds her with one hand. Zoom out to show Jack turning to the right, hunched over Maddie, with Maddie leaning near-horizontally with one hand out and one foot in the air. Jack is still holding the Weasel.
Cut to the containment tank.
|Danny||(In the tank, sound metallically muffled.) Ugh, gross. (The tank vibrates and rattles.) Hello! I’m right here! Hello!|
|Fade to Casper High School. Pan right. A bike bell rings.
Cut to a red tandem bike-trolley. Tucker and Sam are pedaling, and the ghost hunters are all in the back. The bike bell rings again.
Cut to Tucker, sweating.
|Tucker||And if you look to your right,-- (Tucker turns to the back and smiles while panting.) --you’ll see Casper High, (Looks forward and pants more.) whose halls-- (Tucker takes another breath and looks to the back, smiling again.) --have been haunted. (Pan right to Sam, looking angry and sweating.)|
|Sam||I know we told Danny we’d keep these guys busy,-- (Sam takes a breath.) --but could we have maybe done it without exercise?|
|Cut to the trolley again. A motor is head revving as the Fenton Ghost Assault Vehicle drives past.
Cut to the Fenton Ghost Assault Vehicle.
Cut to Jack, driving and reading a sheet of paper that reads “Directions to Reward” on it in blue letters. He tosses it behind him.
|Jack||Jack Fenton will show them-- (Jack puts his free hand on the wheel and turns it side-to-side.) --who the competent ghost hunter is!|
|Cut to Jack’s foot. He floors the gas pedal, the car revs. Cut to Jack, his lips are vibrating over his clenched teeth.
Slide transition to an aerial shot of a dark alley. The Fenton Ghost Assault Vehicle is parked, and Jack is standing at its mouth, carrying the business end of the Weasel so the tank end is on the ground.
Cut to Jack.
|Jack||Hm. (Jack lifts up a sheet reading “Directions to Reward”.) A funny place to claim a reward. (Jack puts the paper down and walks forward off-screen.)|
|Cut to an alley. Jack walks through it, dragging the Weasel.|
|Danny||(In the Weasel.) Please! Stop! (Cut to the tank as it’s dragged along the litter-covered ground.) You should know (The tank hits a rock and keeps going.) what you’re getting into (The tank hits another rock.) here!|
|Cut to Jack, looking down at the tank as he keeps walking.|
|Jack||I know exactly what I’m getting into. (Turns his head forward.) A bigger place in my son’s heart.|
|Cut to Danny, crammed in the tank. He looks disappointed.|
|Danny||Thanks. Now I’m crushed by space and guilt. (Looking more determined.) Look! (The screen clangs again.) You have to listen to me! (Cut to a side view of Jack dragging the Weasel.) All of this is a trap!|
|Cut to Jack.|
|Jack||Oh, please, ghost! (Looks to the left.) Why should I believe you? (Cut to the side view of Jack walking again. He stops with surprise as a pink, cubical jail cage appears in around him.) Hey! (Cut to the tank.)|
|Danny||Does that answer your question?|
|Cut to Jack in the foreground, looking at a wall past the cage in front of him. A small patch of blue light appears as if a ghost is about to phase through.
Cut to the wall. Vlad Plasmius phases through in his blue, intangible form, clapping.
Cut to Jack.
|Jack||You! The Wisconsin Ghost!|
|Cut to Vlad, clapping.|
|Vlad||Ah, very good. (Puts his hands on his waist.) All the pawns doing exactly what they’re supposed to. (Cut to an aerial shot of Jack in the pink, glowing cage and Vlad floating in front of it. Putting out a hand.) Leaving you two trapped and your Fenton Portal unprotected. (Close up on Vlad.) So I can steal it and make it a Plasmius Portal!|
|Cut to the Weasel containment tank within the pink cage.|
|Danny||Wait a minute, you already have a ghost portal!|
|Pan up and right to Jack, who is holding the other end of the Weasel.|
|Jack||(To Danny in the tank) He has a ghost portal? (To Vlad.) You have a ghost portal?|
|Cut to Vlad.|
|Vlad||Of course I have a portal! (Looks away sheepishly) Well I did. It up and exploded on me. Ah, well, that’s what you get for forgetting to clean the ecto-filtrator. (Shrugs, smiling with his eyes closed.) Hmm? Live and learn. (Close up on Vlad, who opens his eyes.) Or in your case, die and learn.|
|Cut to Jack in the cage looking at Vlad floating. Vlad bends his knees and takes flight, the screen panning up to follow him.
Cut to the containment tank.
|Zoom in and fade to FentonWorks.
Cut to the Fenton Portal. Two of the vulture ghosts are loosening bolts on the portal using glowing wrenches.
Pan upward through the ceiling to the dark kitchen. Jazz walks inside, her smile dropping upon seeing the room dark and empty.
Cut to Jazz. She stops abruptly with confusion. Her eyes shift back and forth. She turns right.
|Jazz||Mom? (Eyes look to the left.) Dad? (Turns to the left, completely confused.) Danny? (A black-gloved hand from below gags her and pulls her down.)|
|Cut to Maddie, hood-up holding a hand over her daughter and looking away from her.|
|Maddie||(Whispering.) Quiet! (Turns to Jazz.) There are ghosts about!|
|Pan up. Two vultures fly upward, flapping their wings.|
|Vulture Ghost #1||Actually, (Jazz’s and Maddie’s eyes pop wide.) “Ghosts” is a bit insensitive. (Cut to the Vulture Ghost.) We prefer the term “Ecto-Americans”!|
|Cut to Jazz and Maddie popping onscreen, Jazz with her mouth gaping open, Maddie with fierce determination. She takes out a small green pellet between her finger and her thumb.
Cut to the Vultures floating in the foreground with Jazz and Maddie in the background. Maddie thrusts upward and drops the ball with a grunt, causing a huge smokescreen. When it dissipates, the girls are gone.
|Cut to a hallway. Maddie and Jazz are running down it. It pans left as they run off-screen.|
|Maddie||Come on! (Turns behind her.) We have to get to the weapons vault!|
|Jazz||We have a weapons vault?|
|Cut to the doorway of the Vault, it has a circular door with a punch pad next to it. Maddie and Jasmine run up.
Cut to Maddie, typing on the keypad. She withdraws her finger as the screen flashes “DENIED”.
|Maddie||Darn that man! (Cut to Jazz and Maddie looking at the keypad.) Your father changed the password! (They look toward the door.) There’s no way in!|
|Two vultures land on each of them, turning them intangible. Pan out as they duck down.|
|Vulture Ghost #2||Or out!|
|Maddie and Jazz shout as the vultures phase them through the door.
Cut to the inside of the Vault. Jazz and Maddie slide on the floor on their stomachs. They turn tangible again when they stop. Maddie and Jazz turn toward the door.
|Maddie||Ohhhh, great. (Maddie gets up.) We’re stuck!|
|Jazz gets up.|
|Jazz||How can we be stuck? It’s not like dad would forget to put a handle on the inside of the door, right? (Cut to the door, there’s a note taped on a wheel. Jazz takes it as she reads it aloud.) “Note to self: Have Danny install handle on inside of door, Jack.” (Lowers her eyelids.)|
|Cut to Jack, sitting in the cage and pouting. Zoom in.|
|Danny||You have to listen to me! (Cut to the tank.) We have to get to your house and fast!|
|Cut to Jack.|
|Jack||Why? So you can gloat while I lose my Fenton Portal and the respect of my son in (Takes his hands off his chin and puts them down.) one fell swoop?|
|Cut to Danny in the Weasel, looking toward the out pipe.|
|Danny||You’re gonna lose more than that if your ghost portal explodes.|
|Cut to Jack, sitting down with his hands on his chin.)|
|Jack||It’s not gonna explode. (Puts one arm on his knee.) I’m sure Danny changed the ecto-filtrator. (Lowers eyebrows.) I told him five times.|
|Danny||Did he clean the lab?|
|Danny||Does he clean his room?|
|Jack||(Rolling eyes and sighing.) No.|
|Danny||Ah, would he, ah, I dunno, forget to install a handle on the inside of a weapons vault, er, something?|
|Cut to Jack. His eyes pop with realization. Cut to the pink cage. Jack stands up.|
|Jack||Great gobs of ghost goo, (Puts his hands on his head.) that portal’s gonna blow! (Cut to Jack inside the cage with the weasel on the ground.) Ghost kid,-- (Jack picks up the Weasel nozzle and blows Danny out head-first.) --you gotta help me save my family. (Puts his arms down.) If you do,-- (Close up on Jack.) --I’ll set you free.|
|Cut to Danny.|
|Danny||Uh… you just did.|
|Cut to Jack. He slaps his face with his palm. Cut to Danny, smiling.|
|Danny||Good thing my dad’s a lousy negotiator. (Looks down with heroic bravado.) Jack,-- (Raises arms in glee.) --man that’s cool, heh-- (Returns to bravado.) You've got a deal.|
|Cut to Danny from the back, looking at Jack. He turns intangibly blue, then dives into the ground with his ghost tail. He reappears behind Jack.|
|Cut to Danny smiling behind Jack. He grabs Jack’s shoulders, turning Jack blue as well.|
|Jack||My tummy feels funny.|
|Cut to an aerial shot of the cage. Danny flies up out of it with his father in tow, flying over a building off-screen.
Fade to the top of a hill. Tucker and Sam are sweating like crazy as they pedal up the hill in short bursts. The bike bell rings when the trolley full of ghost hunters stops.
Cut to a sweating, panting Tucker popping into the screen.
|Tucker||And if you look (Pants and points a finger.) over here,-- (Tucker takes another deep breath and turns to the back.) --you’ll see the top of-- (Breathes in again.)|
|Cut to the trolley. Tucker is in front pointing, Sam is behind him looking at the hunters. The Guys in white are looking from the front, the Ghostbreakers are standing on the top, and Scaredy Cat is looking out the back window.|
|Tucker and Sam turn forward as Jack flies overhead, with Danny holding him up.|
|Jack||Happy place, happy place, happy plaaaaace!|
|Tucker, Sam and the ghost hunters all turn to the back as Jack flies off-screen.
Cut to inside the trolley. The Groovy Gang is beside the Guys in White, with Operative O's hands on the edge. Scaredy Cat peeks in from the back.
|Operative O||It’s Jack Fenton, and the ghost kid!|
|Pan up to see the Ghostbreakers. They take out a pair of scooters and undo them, stepping on them as the jets ignite, allowing them to blast off and up in a cartoony fashion.
The Ghostbreakers fly up on their scooters, the first trick has the female lying on her back and the male with his feet over his head. The second trick has the female hanging feet-over-head on her handlebars and the male stretching his feet on both sides off the scooter. The third trick has the female doing a Superman flight while hanging on with one hand on the scooter, and the male is lounging on his scooter. They then go back to normal positions, zooming downward off-screen.
Cut to a hill. The Ghostbreakers land and rolls down it on a path toward the neighborhood leading to the city, Jack Fenton flies overhead.
Close up on Operative O.
|Operative O||That’s our collar.|
|Cut to Operative K.|
|Operative K||(Raising an arm.) And these are my cuffs!|
|He plucks a white cuff-link off his sleeve and looks at it, a small white square with in antenna with a green ball on it. The antenna extends several segments, panning up to show the Groovy Gang, and twirls around with blade segments sprouting and turning into a buzz saw.
Cut to the Groovy Gang looking at Operative K with the buzz-saw. He brings it down to the metal bar connecting the trolley and the bike, sawing through.
Cut to the trolley. The ghost hunters and the pedaling kids look at the saw cutting through. When the agent lifts it, Tucker and Sam scream as the trolley and the bike rolls quickly off the hill in separate directions.
Cut to the hill. Tucker and Sam brace themselves and scream as they roll super-fast down the steep slope.
Cut to the Ghostbreakers in their jet scooters going downhill. The trolley car full of the rest of the ghost hunters accelerate, rolling past them. They all scream.
Cut to the Guys in White in the trolley. The Groovy Gang and Scaredy Cat pop out. Operative O reaches into his suit and takes out a small, flat blue square. He chucks it in the air.
Cut to the blue chip. It sparkles.
Cut to Danny flying Jack. The chip lands under Danny’s chest, Jack looks down and Danny braces himself. He begins to glow blue all over and starts slacking the weight, falling earthbound.
Cut to the ground. Danny falls into it and Jack slides on his butt, making a dirt trench. When he stops, he looks down and jumps to the side. Danny’s hands are seen in the ground in their “holding Jack” position, with some pink smoke coming from it.
Cut to Danny’s hands. Jack’s own gloved hand grabs one of them and pulls Danny out like a radish.
Cut to Danny, pouting at Jack, who is holding him up. Jack releases his grip and Danny lands on the ground again.
Cut to Jack and Danny. Danny is seen from the back, Jack is looking up in fear. Danny turns around and gasps.

|Danny||Then don’t! (Tenses.) I can take care of these (Outstretches his arm and points.) idiots! (Cut to Danny. He pulls Jack to him by the collar, looks up at him, and points behind himself.)
