Speaker Dialogue
[Open Int. Gem Battlefield]
(Steven is walking through the Gem battlefield, covered in strawberry bushes, with the Gem and Lion.)
Steven This place is even bigger and more weapon-y than I remember.
Pearl This was a site of a historic battle. Every weapon here was left by a Gem over 5,000 years ago. I don't like to disturb it, but Garnet said we can't just leave these lying around.
(Garnet picks up a giant battle-axe and hoists it over her shoulder.)
Garnet Never know when you might need one of these.
Steven I need one of those all the time!
Pearl Why don't you look for one that's more... you?
Steven Okay! Lion, come help me look.
(Lion start a butterfly and walks away after it.)
Steven Aw, come on.
Pearl You really need to train that thing better.
Steven Oh, we've been making progress, now he looks at me when I say his name!
(Steven begins to repeatedly call Lion's name, but Lion ignores him and starts digging in the ground.)
Steven Uh, sometimes...
(Lion's digging reveals a pink object in the dirt.)
Pearl What's he got now?
(Lion lifts the object up in his mouth, revealing to be a scabbard.)
Pearl *gasps* That's the scabbard for Rose's sword! *tries to snatch it from Lion's mouth* Gimme! Gimme! *takes hold of the scabbard and waves her hand at Lion* Shoo, shoo.
(Lion grunts at Pearl, unamused.)
Steven Mom fought here?
Pearl That's right! And I fought alongside her.
Amethyst Man, I wish I could've seen it!
Garnet No, you don't. Countless Gems were broken here. It was a maelstrom of destruction and death.
Pearl *jumps in* But we won! Your mother led us to glorious victory! The odds were against us, and our hearts were uncertain. But we chose to fight alongside Rose, and here we made our stand against our Homeworld!
[Trans. Int. Beach House]
(The Crystal Gems warp back home, with the weapons they have gathered from the battlefield.)
Amethyst This is great! My room's been needing another pile.
Garnet Amethyst! Help me with this axe.
(Amethyst and Garnet try to fit the battle-axe through the Temple Gate, conservating and making a commotion in the background.)
Pearl It's been ages... *looks at the scabbard and blushes*
Amethyst (background) Turn it clockwise! No, your other clockwise!
(Steven stares at Pearl.)
Pearl W-What is it, Steven?
Steven What was Mom like?
Pearl She was courageous, and brilliant... *looks at the painting of Rose* And beautiful... Sometimes, you look so much like her.
Steven Really...?
(Steven and Pearl look behind briefly at the commotion Amethyst and Garnet are causing.)
Amethyst (background) Yeah, lift it backwards!
Garnet (background) You mean "pull!"
Amethyst (background) Yeah, "pull," sure.
Pearl Hey, Steven... Maybe you should hold onto this. *hands Steven the scabbard*
Steven Woah... Thanks, Pearl. If anything tries to eat me, I'll bop them with this! *swings the scabbard*
Pearl That's just the scabbard, Steven. It held your mother's sword. Nothing else could fit so perfectly inside. For all this time it's been... incomplete.
Steven Well, let's complete it. Where's the sword?
(Garnet manages to fit the battle-axe through the door.)
Amethyst That's it! Yeah, you got it! *runs through the door, and it closes behind her*
Pearl Can you keep a secret?
Steven A secret?!
Pearl *covers Steven's mouth* Shh! It's a secret, even to Garnet and Amethyst. Rose had a place that she kept hidden from all but me, but you have her gem. That place is yours now, and I can show it to you!
Steven Uh, okay.
(Steven and Pearl warp into a canyon, with Steven looking extremely confident.)
Pearl Now it's just a three-hour hike that way, followed by a vertical climb at 90 degrees. Think you can handle it?
(Steven's confidence quickly fades away. Time passes, as Pearl climbs up the mountains with Steven strapped onto her back.)
Pearl I was your mother's sole confidant— for the words she could share with no one else, I was there to listen.
Steven Why'd she keep so many secrets?
Pearl She had to, Steven! It's the mark of a great leader, knowing just what to keep hidden from everyone you're trying to protect. Everyone except me! *chuckles*
(The pair eventually reaches the top and arrive at a huge platform in the middle of a flooded cave.)
Pearl Welcome to Rose's Secret Armory! *smiles widely*
Steven Woah... I've been here before!
Pearl *smile quickly fades away* Wha— ? You must be thinking of someplace else, I'm the only other Crystal Gem that's witnessed the Armory's magnificence before now.
Steven Nuh-uh, Lion showed me.
Pearl The lion?!
(Steven beckons Pearl and they walk towards the center of the platform.)
Steven Yeah! There's all kinds of great stuff hidden in here.
(The platform begins to glow as Steven steps on it, startling Pearl a bit.)
Pearl I know! That's why I brought you here! Now let me show you how you can access the artillery.
Steven That's okay! I can do it without you. Wham!
(Steven walks up and presses his hand on the hand pedestal. Nothing happens for a brief moment.)
Steven Oh, right! *pokes himself in the cheek, and the armory activates* We got some... axes.
Pearl The Axes of Ages?
Steven *pokes his side* Oh! We got spikey chain lady and her metal dealies.
Pearl The Heretic's Anguish?!
Steven We got a... *pokes his side again* O-oh! Three pack of laser light cannons.
Pearl The Quartizine Trio!
Steven *pokes his nose* Boop! And... a whole lot of these armor guys.
Pearl *gets frustrated* The Armor of the Fallen!
Steven ... What were we looking for?
Pearl Her sword! Your mother's sword! *projects a hologram of the sword* It's a straight bladed saber that's pink with a red handle. There are vines etched in the guard that connect to a rose-shaped pommel.
Steven Oh, I know where that is.
Pearl (The hologram turns into a exclamation mark.) *dumbfounded* Huh?
[Trans. Int. Beach House]
(Steven approaches to pull Rose's Sword out of Lion's mane as the Gems watch.)
Steven ♫ Dadadadada... Here it is! ♫
Pearl Rose's sword, how did it get in there?
Steven I don't know. *hands the sword to Pearl, and she slots it in the scabbard* But there's a ton of stuff in there, I keep stuff in him too.
(He jumps into Lion's mane and jumps out riding his bike.)
Steven Ta-da!
Pearl But how?
(Pearl tries to enter Lion's mane, but he growls at her.)
Pearl Does Lion have something to do with Rose?
Amethyst Oh... of course! That's why he's pink!
Garnet It's a little obvious.
Pearl But... Rose didn't have a lion.
(Steven puts his helmet and bike back into Lion.)
Steven It seems like her stuff in there.
Pearl No! Rose didn't have a lion, because if Rose had a lion I would have known about it!
Garnet Rose kept many things secret, even from us.
Pearl But not from me, I was the one she told everything! *starts tearing up*
Amethyst Yo, you're not the only one who misses her!
Pearl YOU can't understand how I feel, NONE of you had what we had!
Steven She probably just wanted to protect you, like everyone else.
Pearl WHAT DO YOU KNOW?! YOU'VE NEVER EVEN MET HER!!!
(Pearl slams her fist into the wall, which causes the painting of Rose to fall. Pearl gasps and Garnet quickly catches it. Pearl looks at Steven and then runs off.)
Amethyst Fine, go! Go cry about it!
(Pearl warps away, as Garnet hangs the painting back on the wall.)
Steven Where did she go?
Amethyst Who cares? I HATE it when she gets like this.
Steven Garnet?
(Garnet does not reply, and Steven wipes his tear in his eyes.)
Steven Is she okay?
(Garnet does not reply again.)
Steven Well, I am going to find her *turns to Lion* Do you know where she went?
(Lion growls in response.)
Steven I'm going to assume that means you do. *hops on Lion's back* Let's go find Pearl!
(Lion opens a portal with his magical roar and jumps in with Steven.)
Garnet Good luck.
[Trans. Int. Gem Battlefield, Night time]
(Steven and Lion arrive at the Gem Battlefield and spot Pearl standing alone, embracing Rose's sword.)
Steven Pearl?
Pearl *quickly runs off* Leave me alone!
(Steven and Lion begins chasing after her, catching up to her with Lion's portals.)
Steven Wait for me!
(Pearl runs in a different direction and jumps off a cliff onto floating chunks of earth.)
Pearl Get that thing away from me!
Steven You better sit this one out, Lion.
(Steven gets off Lion and starts jumping across the chunks of earth too.)
Steven Okay, I've had a talk with Lion, he's gonna, uh, chill out here, uh, we're alone now, nice and private.
(Pearl ignores Steven continues to jump higher, while Steven struggles to catch up.)
Steven Good idea, I'll meet you at the top.
(Steven eventually arrives at the top-most chunk. Pearl stands on a huge platform, separated by a large gap in between Steven and her.)
Steven This is really hard to do in sandals. *chuckles*
Pearl Go away!
Steven Pearl! Did I... did I do something wrong? You got to tell me!
(Steven attempts to jump across the gap to reach Pearl, but falls when he sees her anguished face.)
Pearl Steven!
(Steven quickly grabs onto a root of the platform at the last second and climbs back up.)
Steven Pearl! Pearl, you have to tell me what's wrong.
Pearl Sometimes, you even sound like her... Do you remember this place? Do you have any of her memories? We were right here, over 5,000 years ago.
(Pearl summons a hologram of Rose Quartz and begins to reenact an ecnounter with her.)
Holo-Rose Pearl...
Pearl Yes?
Holo-Rose I'm going to stay and fight for this planet. You don't have to do this with me.
Pearl But I want to!
Holo-Rose I know you do. Please, please understand if we lose, we'll be killed, and if we win, we can never go home.
Pearl But why would I ever want to go home, if you're here?
(Holo-Rose chuckles and offers her hand to Pearl.)
Holo-Rose My Pearl.
Pearl You're wonderful...
(Pearl grasps Holo-Rose's hand, and the hologram disappears soon after.)
Pearl Everything I ever did, I did for her. Now she's gone, but I'm still here. Sometimes, I wonder if she can see me through your eyes. *sighs* What would she think of me now?
(Steven struggles to comprehend her feelings and hugs Pearl from behind.)
Steven Well... I think you're pretty great.
(Pearl begins to cry and the pair embraces each other for a while. They eventually return back to Lion, and Pearl returns Rose's Sword back into Lion's mane. Steven pulls out a top hat and does a magic trick with Lion's mane for Pearl. Steven then jumps into Lion and comes back out with Rose's Battle Flag. Pearl, unheard, tells a story to Steven while holding her flag proudly.)
Pearl (unheard) ...and out of nowhere, when it seemed impossible, Rose charged in with me by her side!
(Steven and Pearl then ride on Lion back home, while Pearl hoists the flag over her shoulder.)
