Speaker Dialogue
[Open Int. Beta Kindergarten]
(The Crystal Gems are looking through the Kindergarten for leftover Corrupted Gems, previously captured and imprisoned here by Jasper. Steven and Peridot walks up to a cage in the cliff face.)
Steven Here's another one!
(The other Gems are in front of another cage, ready to beat up a Corrupted Gem inside.)
Garnet Got it, Steven! Ready... Go!
(The Gems charge into the cage and begin to fight the Corrupted Gem.)
Amethyst Grab its legs!
Garnet That's not a leg!
Amethyst Ow!
(The Gems successfully poof the Corrupted Gem and exit the cage, with Garnet holding the gemstone in a bubble.)
Pearl It's a little disturbing that Jasper was just keeping these Corrupted Gems in cages.
Amethyst Isn't that what we're doing?
Pearl That's different.
Garnet They're cared for in the stasis of the bubble. As long as they're bubbled, they can't hurt anyone, and they won't suffer. *sends the bubbled gem away* It's what Rose wanted.
(Steven and Peridot stay outside of the cage they found and watch the Corrupted Gem inside.)
Steven Huh. I guess this is the last of them.
(Inside, a bipedal, avian-esque Gem monster snarls with her tongues stuck out, as she erratically runs around and falls over on her head.)
Peridot *laughs*] I can't believe these dumb things used to be Gems!
Garnet *walks over* Pearl, Amethyst, get ready. *beckons the other Gems over* This one is flighty.
Steven Are Corrupted Gems not like this on Homeworld?
Peridot We don't have anything like this on Homeworld.
Garnet Here we go!
(Garnet pulls the metal bar of the cage, and the Tongue Monster immediately charges out, slamming into Garnet.)
Steven Garnet!
(As the Tongue Monster runs away, Amethyst tries to reel her back with her whip, but gets dragged off along. Pearl begins shooting energy blasts at the Tongue Monster with her spear to no success. The Tongue Monster runs back, sending Amethyst colliding into Pearl. The Tongue Monster then scales up the cliff to higher ground, snarls and successfully retreats. Peridot begins laughing at the Gems' failure.)
Peridot That was terrible!
Pearl This is harder than it looks, you know!
Peridot How could you all be outsmarted by that thing?
Pearl Well, first, it ran over Garnet, and then Amethyst tried to use her-
Garnet Uh, we don't need the play by play. Mistakes happen, even when you can see the future.
Amethyst Yeah, Peridot. Let's see you do better.
Peridot Well, I saved all your butts from Jasper. I suppose I could help you here, too.
Garnet Feel free.
Peridot This'll be a great chance to show off my metal powers! *walks off on her own*
Garnet Then our work here is done.
Steven Uh, I-I'm... umm...
Amethyst Are you seriously going to help her?
Steven It's just... She's all alone out there, with no idea what she's doing.
Pearl Oh, Peridot will be fine.
Steven I meant the monster!
Garnet *chuckles to herself* Okay. Take as long as you need. *walks away*
Pearl Uh, Garnet, are you sure?
(Pearl and Amethyst chase after Garnet, and Steven runs up to Peridot, who is currently devising a plan.)
Steven Wait! *stops running and pants heavily*
Peridot Did the others ask you to bring me back?
Steven No, I came to help! It usually takes all of us to capture a Corrupted Gem.
Peridot That's because you try to out-brute it. We're going to outsmart it!
Steven So... I can help?
Peridot I could use your experience dealing with these things. It just doesn't seem fair.
Steven Why's that?
Peridot With you and me teaming up, that thing won't stand a chance.
(Steven and Peridot begin to laugh triumphantly.)
Steven Yeah!
(The Tongue Monster suddenly runs through Peridot and Steven, knocking them onto the air. The pair falls back onto the ground and quickly gets up.)
Peridot After it!
(Peridot and Steven give chase, crawl behind a rock and peek over it.)
Peridot What's it doing?
(Peridot and Steven spot the Tongue Monster in the distance, staring at one of the Injectors hanging off the side of the cliff.)
Steven Maybe it likes shiny things?
Peridot This is perfect! I've just concocted a flawless Peri-plan!
Steven So what's the P.P.?
Peridot If I use my metal powers, the whole thing will fall onto the monster!
Steven Give it a try!
Peridot *begins to tamper with one of the Injector's legs* Carefully...
(Peridot manages to remove one of the legs, dropping it to the ground. The Injector remains hanging on the cliff wall, while the Tongue Monster looks at the metal legin confusion.)
Steven It's... not falling.
Peridot Maybe another leg needs to go.
(Peridot removes another leg, resulting in the aforementioned result.)
Peridot *growls in frustration* Fall! You... stupid...!
(Two more legs are removed. Again, nothing happens, and the Tongue Monster decides to venture somewhere else.)
Peridot Oh come on! *grunts, walks underneath the Injector and starts kicking the wall* Fall already!
(As Peridot kicks the wall, the area the Injector is embedded in begins to crack.)
Steven Peridot, watch out!
Peridot Oh, right. Thank you.
(Peridot steps away from underneath the Injector, kicks the wall again, and a bunch of boulders fall on top of her.)
Steven Uh, Peridot!
(Steven runs over to Peridot but is greeted by the Tongue Monster, running back in front of him.)
Peridot *pops hers face out of the boulders* There it is! Get it!
(Steven summons his shield, but the Tongue Monster immediately starts attacking him with her talons.)
Peridot Keep distracting it! I'll finish it off!
(Peridot climbs out of the boulders, and immediately, the Injector falls on top of her. A beaten-up Steven walks over to check on Peridot, while the Tongue Monster flees away again.)
Steven You okay?
Peridot I think we need to... revise our strategy. Bleh...
[Fade to Black; Time-Skip]
(Steven and Peridot stands on top of the cliff, underneath the bright sun.)
Peridot Are you ready for the second Peri-plan?
Steven The first one... wasn't so great.
Peridot Yes, noted, Steven. But this plan is even more flawless! I cannibalized the Injector to make a rudimentary cannon! Observe.
(Peridot activates the cannon, which shoots a large object up into the sky and into the yonder.)
Steven Whoa! Impressive!
Peridot You got that right. This way, we can take it out from a distance!
Steven *spots the Tongue Monster running in* Oh, there it is!
Peridot I got it!
(The Tongue Monster notices Steven and Peridot and snarls with her tongues in the air in response. Peridot aims the cannon towards the Tongue Monster.)
Peridot Heh, you clod.
(Peridot activates the cannon, but it does not shoot at all.)
Peridot Huh? *starts banging her fist on the cannon* Work, you stupid- Argh!
(The cannon fires, the resulting recoil sending it backwards into Peridot, crashing her into the wall behind her and creating a mini-avalanche of boulders. The Tongue Monster then approaches Steven.)
Steven Uhh... hey. You win this round. *chuckles nervously*
(The Tongue Monster attacks Steven again, as he screams in fright.)
[Fade to Black; Time-Skip]
(Peridot and Steven, both visibly roughened-up, stand near the edge of a cliff, next a giant boulder.)
Peridot Okay. I've analyzed the problems with the previous two Peri-plans. Relying on the Injectors introduced too many complicating variables. Now we only have to rely on simple physics! We'll wait until it gets right up under us, not suspecting a thing, because it's so dumb! And then we'll drop this rock on its stupid head! It's even more flawless! And at this height, nothing can fall on us!
Steven What if it doesn't stop where we want it to?
Peridot I'm doing the best I can, Steven!
(The Tongue Monster suddenly appears behind Steven and Peridot and snarls loudly, scaring them off the cliff. The Tongue Monster then taps on the giant boulder, causing it to fall as well. Peridot screams as she face-plants onto the ground, while Steven gently floats down.)
Peridot I-
(The giant boulder falls onto Peridot, flattening her onto it, and rolls off carrying her away. Steven gives chase until he and Peridot come across an eroded formation of sandstone resembling a loop-de-loop. The giant boulder goes around the loop-de-loop and collides into Steven, as he quickly protects himself with the bubble. Steven's bubble goes around the loop and collides into the boulder, freeing Peridot, and it goes half-way up the loop.)
Peridot I think-
(The giant boulder falls on Peridot on the ground, and Steven pops his bubble in shock.)
Steven You don't poof easily, huh?
Peridot Us Peridots are tougher than we look!
[Fade to Black; Time-Skip - Night-time]
(Steven is cooking marshmallows on a stick over a bonfire, while Peridot is celebrating her latest devised plan in the distance.)
Peridot Yes! This is going to work. This is going to be perfect! This is going to be...
(A crude construction of the Injector is shown, which quickly falls apart without proper support.)
Peridot ...A waste of my time.
(Peridot walks over to Steven, who is enjoying his marshmallows.)
Peridot Why can't I master this? *sits down next to Steven in frustration*
Steven Aw, Peridot, it's okay. Even if none of your Peri-plans worked, at least they were really funny. The others will probably think so, too, when we go back and get 'em.
Peridot Go back? Let it be known that I, Peridot, refuse to move forward or back until I am victorious.
Steven *rolls his eyes* Right.
Peridot I don't get it. I'm smarter than your average Peridot. How did I fail today against some barely functional, stupid, cloddy, dumb-dumb?!
Steven Hey, hey, corruptions aren't dumb. They just think a little different, that's all.
Peridot Okay, just to make sure my Earth vocabulary is correct on this... let's say I'm a monster. I spend all my time slamming my face into hard objects and throwing my tongues in the air for fun. How am I not... dumb?
Steven Well, she must be doing something right. She hasn't fallen for any of your Peri-plans.
(Peridot frowns in sheer embarrassment.)
Peridot It's luck! Nothing that thing does makes any sense!
(Peridot kicks away a nearby stone and begins to ponder in frustration. Steven then throws a piece of marshmallow at Peridot.)
Peridot Hey.
(Steven taunts the anticipation of another marshmallow and throws another one at Peridot. He eventually starts throwing dozens of them at Peridot.)
Peridot *growling angrily* Why are you bombarding me with your confectionery puff rocks?!
Steven To show you what it's like to be a monster! Pretend I'm a freaked-out human screaming at you in fear! Pretend I'm an Earth animal chasing you away from your first safe hiding spot! Pretend I'm an angry green Gem trying to poof you! This is life for you now! End-less suffering!
(Peridot keeps growling in anger as Steven throws marshmallows at her, She eventually breaks and snatches the marshmallows bag away from Steven. She chews on the bag and waves it around in a fit of anger like a wild dog, proving Steven's point.)
Steven There! You see?
Peridot Yeah.
Steven What you're doing makes total sense! You remember what it was like to have everything important taken away? Being under attack? Feeling trapped? You were frustrated. So is she! Why don't you try thinking about all of this from her point of view?
Peridot Hmm...
[Time-Skip - Day-time]
(The Tongue Monster is seen shooting her tongues into the air as Steven and Peridot spy on her from behind a rock.)
Steven You can do it.
(Peridot walks over to the Tongue Monster, and the two stare at each other intently.)
Peridot Ugh. I can't take this dirty tongue-flapper seriously.
Steven Think... like... a monster.
(Peridot, after some consideration, begins to "think like a monster" and shoot her tongue in the air. The Tongue Monster approves of Peridot, as she bounces on the spot and shoots her tongues in the air. Peridot hops over and the two shoot their tongues together as playtime.
Steven Aww. *smiles*
(While the Tonugue Monster is snarling and shooting her tongues, Peridot sneaks up to the distracted monster and kicks her, triggering her into a frenzy and begins attacking Peridot. Steven gasps in shock and runs over, as Peridot clings to the monster's face.)
Steven It's okay! We don't want to fight! Just let Peridot bubble you! We can all get along-
(Steven is inadvertently knocked away in his bubble shield by the Tongue Monster. Peridot grabs onto the monster's leg, and she begins running off, dragging a screaming Peridot along. Steven gives chase as the two run around the loop-de-loop sandstone formation and eventually to the edge of a cliff.)
Steven No, no, no, no, no!
(Peridot continues to wrestle with the Tongue Monster, as she tries to keep her balance on the cliff edge.)
Peridot Give me... that... gem!
(The Tongue Monster eventually slips and falls off the cliff, taking Peridot with her.)
Steven Peridot!
(Steven watches as Peridot and the Tongue Monster plummet into the canyon below, landing on the ground with a cloud of dust. Steven gasps in horror and floats down to the ground, finding a hole in shape of both Peridot and the monster. Peridot then climbs out of the hole, holding the gemstone of the Tongue Monster, presumably poofed from the fall.)
Peridot *pants heavily* I did it.
(Steven sighs in relief and helps Peridot out of the hole. Garnet then walks into the scene.)
Steven Oh, hey. You're back!
Garnet Eh, we never really left.
(Garnet points at a rock behind her, and Pearl and Amethyst pops out.)
Amethyst We knew it'd be funny.
Garnet *takes off her visor, revealing her third eye* Future vision.
Peridot Y-You were all watching this whole time?
(Peridot blushes and looks down at the gem in her hand.)
Peridot I told you I could do it. But I have to admit, it was more difficult than expected. This Corrupted Gem was truly an adversary worthy of my skill.
(Peridot inadvertently bubbles the gem in her hand.)
Steven Whoa! Peridot!
Amethyst Nice bubble, Peri!
Peridot W-What do I do with it?
Garnet Send it off.
Steven Just tap the top.
(Peridot does so, and the bubble travels elsewhere.)
Steven Happy trails!
Peridot So, where did it go?
Steven Home.
[Trans. Int. The Barn]
(Lapis is reading a book titled "Pretty Hairstylist", as the bubbled gem appears on the ceiling. She notices the bubble, glances at it briefly, and continues reading her book. The star iris then zooms in on the bubble, ending the episode.)
