Speaker Dialogue
Sadie sets a plate with pumpkin-shaped pumpkin bread on it onto the Big Donut counter.
Steven cuts a small slice from the pumpkin bread and eats it.
Sadie So, how is it?
Lars Be honest, but not too honest.
Steven It's pumpkin bread! And it's pumpkin-shaped, like a pumpkin! This is the best idea anybody has ever had!
Sadie See? I told you. It's really good.
Lars Of course Steven likes it. He likes everything.
Steven Lars, did you make this?
Lars No! Well, yes, but it's no big deal.
Sadie Secret's out, Lars. Feels good, doesn't it?
Lars [Blushes] Ah, stop.
Steven Oh, this is amazing! How'd you get it to look like a pumpkin?
Lars I just made seven small crescent-shaped cakes and used cream cheese icing to hold them together. Anyone with two hands and half a brain could do it. And, you know, a recipe.
Sadie That's his way of saying thanks.
Steven I know. I speak Lars.
Buck Dewey walks in and the doorbell chimes.
Lars B-B-B-Buck Dewey! [Grabs plate and puts it behind counter and leans on his arm]
Steven Hi, Buck.
Buck Hey, Steven. Hey, donut kids.
Lars Hi, Buck, what's up? How's it going? What'll it be?
Buck I want to order... you to come to dinner. Me, Jenny, and Sour Cream are having a potluck. You know, like parents do. Except we'll be doing it. All three of you should come. You should bring some food, because that's what you do at a potluck. It's so funny.
Lars [Laughs] That is funny, Buck! It sounds great. [Puts both thumbs up] Super cool. [Puts arms behind head] Can't wait. [Gun hands] Bingo, bongo.
Buck Cool. [Walks out and doorbell chimes]
Lars [Puts hands on face and groans] "Bingo, bongo"? Where did I even learn that?
Steven Yeah! Bingo, bongo! This is gonna be great.
Sadie Hey, yeah, this is perfect. You won't believe us when we say we like your cooking, but you'll have to believe it when it's coming from Buck.
Lars [Groans and puts face on counter]
Sadie Uh, Lars?
Lars I'm not going.
Sadie What?! You just got invited to a part with the Cool Kids! Isn't that what you've always wanted? If anyone shouldn't go, it's me, but they know you. They like you!
Lars Unh-unh. Nobody knows me. And nobody knows I can bake.
Sadie Well, I do, and he does.
Steven Yeah, Lars, you should make this your big debut.
Lars Well... then, it has to be perfect.
At Lars' house.
Lars paces around his room, Steven lays on his bed, and Sadie sits on a chair.
Steven How about a pie?
Lars No.
Sadie Uh, baked Alaska?
Lars It might look like I'm trying too hard.
They all say "Hmm".
Lars Yeah, something cream-filled. A bundt? A cannoli? Maybe some rugelach? [Puts hands on face] [Groans] I don't know!
Sadie Maybe we could make a cake with your face on it.
Steven That's a great idea! You should make something that represents you.
Lars [Presses hair to mirror] [Lifts up edge of mattress and pulls out a cookbook]
Steven [Gasps] Secret cookbook.
Lars Maybe this'll work. [Opens book, sits down on edge of bed, and then turns a few pages of the cookbook] I used to eat this as a kid all the time.
Steven Wow. What's... uby?
Lars It's ube.
Sadie What's that?
Lars [Blushes] Uh, like, you know, it's like a sweet potato.
Steven Potatoes can be sweet?
Lars I mean, it's technically a yam.
Steven Yams?!
Sadie This sounds perfect!
Lars squats in the middle of the stairs, peeking through them and pointing before standing up and walking all the way down; Steven and Sadie follow him.
All three of them look at the cookbook on the table; Lars speaks.
Screen changes to show flour, eggs, milk, and ube.
Lars moves an egg yolk to one side of the egg shell; Steven tries but misses the other shell.
Sadie turns on a mixer sending paste flying everywhere.
Steven attempts to pour the ube mix out of its bag and into the paste; part of it falls in and some of the paste flies out of the bowl.
Screen changes to show Lars mixing the ube with the paste, laying out dough into a pan, and pouring the ube mix onto it.
Lars squats watching the oven; Steven makes Sadie laugh.
Lars spreads paste onto the ube dough and rolls it up, finally laying three dollops of paste on the top.
Lars sets the plate onto the table.
Lars It's done. [Wipes forehead]
Steven and Sadie look at each other before taking a bite from the ube.
Lars So, how is it?
Steven It's...
Steven and Sadie Amazing!
Sadie This is delicious.
Steven You're an amazing baker, Lars.
Lars Well, yeah, of course I am.
Screen switches to show Steven and Sadie have eaten the whole thing.
Steven Sorry, Lars. It's really good.
Lars Guess I have to take your word for it.
Sadie I'm gonna head out and get my stuff for the party. This is it! It's all happening! Lars and the Cool Kids! See ya there! [Leaves]
Steven Bye, Sadie. [Sighs] Everything is so good.
Lars Yeah, too good. [Sits down and begins making another cake]
Steven What do you mean?
Lars [Blushes] Uh, never mind.
Steven Aw, come on. You can tell me anything. I spent a day in your body.
Lars It's nothing. Forget about it.
Steven [Reaches over and puts a hand on Lars' shoulder] [Whispers] Open up about your feelings.
Lars [Sighs] I'm not worried about the cake. The cake is gonna rule. I'm worried about showing up with a cake.
Steven What do you mean?
Lars There's a reason I don't like telling anybody I like baking.
Steven And what's that?
Lars Because it's lame, Steven! If I show up to this party with my family's weird purple cake and with Sadie, everybody's gonna know I love baking and everybody's gonna know I love... [Blushes] This isn't gonna be an ironic potluck. It's gonna be, like, family, couple, neighbor, actual potluck, and I'm gonna be there being all bingo, bongo.
Steven These are your friends. They want you to come. That's why they invited you -- so they'll get to know you better. If they like you, they like you. If they don't, then it's their loss. Right?
Lars [Puts head on the table] That's pretty smart. When did you get so mature?
Steven Somewhere in between learning to summon my shield and finding out my mom is a war criminal.
Lars [Stands up] Okay! I'll do it.
Steven Lars! It's going to go so good! I got to get going and make my thing, but I'll see you there, right?
Lars Yeah. Yeah, I'll see you.
In front of Onion's House in the evening.
Steven is waiting by the front door which is shortly opened by Sour Cream.
Sour Cream Hey, man.
Steven Who's feeling lucky? [Holds up his plate of sushi]
Steven and Sour Cream walk into the living room.
Steven [Places his plate on the table with the other food] My, my. What a feast.
Sour Cream [Sits down on the couch] I brought the soda.
Jenny [Enters and sits down on the couch] I brought the pizza.
Buck [Enters and sits down on the couch] I brought the assorted fruit.
Steven I can't wait for Lars to get here. He made a -- wait, wait, I shouldn't tell you. It's a surprise.
Buck That Lars is full of surprises. The other day, he did this thing. What was it? [Makes gun hands] Bingo, bongo. It was transcendent.
Jenny That is so creative.
Sour Cream [Makes gun hands] Bingo, bongo.
The doorbell rings.
Steven That's him! [Runs to the door, opens it, and sees Sadie] Oh, Sadie. Where's Lars?
Sadie He's not here yet?
Steven He's probably still working on the cake. This is his ube debut, after all. [Chuckles] Why don't you come on in?
Sadie Oh, uh...
Steven and Sadie walk into the living room where the others are laughing.
Jenny I love me some cheese.
Buck You and your fancy cheese plates.
Jenny [Notices Sadie] Oh, hey, it's donut girl.
Steven Everybody, this is Sadie.
Sadie Uh, hi. I'm Lars' friend.
Jenny What's up? I'm Jenny.
Buck Hey again.
Sour Cream I'm Sour Cream. Welcome to my house!
Buck So, tell us, Sadie, what did you bring to our very cool potluck?
Sadie Sorry, I didn't bring any food. Just these paper plates. It's just, uh, they're for Lars' thing, and he's not even here. Actually, I probably should just show myself --
Sour Cream Did you say plates? [Turns off the lights and throws some glow sticks onto the floor] Hooray! [Switches on the lights] Now I don't have to do the dishes.
Sadie Wow, I never thought anyone could get excited over paper plates. I guess they are biodegradable. But I'm still worried about Lars.
Steven I'll go find him. Don't you worry about it. Hang out, have fun.
Sour Cream You can sit on the bean bag. [Holds up bean bag]
Jenny Yeah, that bean bag is sick. You got to try it.
Sadie Oh, all right. [Sits on bag] What do you know? I fit.
The Cool Kids and Sadie laugh.
Jenny Told ya.
Steven I'll be right back with Lars.
Steven exits the house.
Steven Now, where could he be?
Steven runs around town and checks several places: he speaks with Lars' parents at their residence, stops by the Big Donut, meets Peedee by Beach Citywalk Fries, and asks Mr. Smiley at Funland Arcade.
Steven [Jumps into the sky above Beach City] La-a-a-a-a-a-rs! [Lands on the ground] Lars! If only there was some way to contact him with my mind. Oh, wait, or with my phone! [Calls Lars on his cellphone]
Steven's Phone This is Lars. Leave a message. [Beeps]
Steven La-a-a-a-a-rs! I mean, Lars, hi. This is Steven. Uh, I was just wondering where you were. The potluck is going really great. Everyone's having a nice time, and we're all excited for you to come join the fun. [Walks back to Onion's House] Or maybe I just missed you and you're already back at the party... and that's the sound of you enjoying music with all our friends. [Checks the garbage bin and sees an ube] Or maybe you decided not to go inside. Th-That's okay, though. Guess I'll see you later. [Ends the message, sighs, and closes the garbage bin]
Steven goes inside and finds the Cool Kids and Sadie singing and playing music ("Potluck").
Buck ♪ Pizza potluck ♪ Potluck, potluck ♪
Sadie ♪ Potluck ♪ Potluck ♪ Po-ot-lu-u-u-u-uck ♪ Po-o-otluck ♪ Potluck ♪
Sour Cream All right! [Claps]
Jenny Nice! Hey, nice ending.
Sour Cream Yeah, whoo!
Buck Yeah, Sadie. That was fresh. Oh, hey, it's Steven.
Sadie Hey, Steven, we've been having such a blast over here. Did you find Lars?
Steven Uh, yeah. He -- he can't make it tonight. Something came up.
Sadie Ah, bummer, huh? [Sighs] Well, that's okay. Let's keep playing music.
Jenny Yeah!
Sour Cream Right on.
Outside Onion's House.
Cool Kids Bye, guys. See ya. Bye, guys.
Sadie Later, guys. [Exits the house with Steven] So, he decided not to come, huh?
Steven Actually...
Steven and Sadie look inside the garbage bin.
Sadie Aw, geez. Lars.
Steven Maybe we should've tried harder to get him to come.
Sadie Guess so. [Closes the bin]
Steven and Sadie begin walking home.
Sadie Ugh. He wants to be in with them so much. [Chuckles] It's funny. I never thought I'd be the one hanging out with them. You know, they really are cool. Like, not like he thinks, but, like -- like, they're actually cool people. How's he going to realize that if he doesn't give them a chance? I wish I could just force him to be happy. Oh, no. I sound like my mother. Maybe I should be trying to fix my life instead of his.
Steven Bingo, bongo.
Sadie Goodnight, Steven.
Steven Goodnight, Sadie.
Steven and Sadie go their separate ways. As Sadie continues walking home, a large shadow appears behind her. A smaller, winged shadow appears beside it.
Episode ends.
