As I said before in the previous blog, I would post my script I made up for the VeggieTales movie of the characters roaming around the real world would be posted. It’s not 100% complete but it’s what I’ve gotten so far. I’ve got ideas for the soundtrack too. Phil Vischer, if you are reading these, I hope this plot is appealing and you’re able to think about bringing this to life.
Bob: Okay Larry, it’s time for the theme song.
Larry: Are you kidding Bob? There’s no theme song today.
Bob: What? What is it this time?
Larry: Today we’re going to the real world!
Bob: The real world? Are you sure about this? How do we even get there?
Larry: Aw c’mon Bob! Don’t you want to see the home of the children who watch us?
Bob: Well I guess it would be interesting.
Larry: Well then c’mon I’ll show you the way.
(White screen falls down into real world scenery.)
Bob: Larry? What just happened?
Larry: I just used my imagination to bring us here! Why this must be the real New York City. Take a look! Real humans, a real city, real life living, real….
Bob: Larry, I don’t know if this is the safest place for us. You know..
Larry: Are you kidding Bob? This is great!
(Larry starts to sing a song about coming to the real world and what its like. Bob joins in later. )
(They run into Kevin Clint. [Rob Patterson])
Kevin: Who are you guys?
Larry: Oh look Bob! Even the real humans want to meet us. Hello I’m Larry the Cucumber and this is my friend Bob the Tomato.
Kevin: Yeah right! I’m Kevin. See ya!
Bob: Gee Larry, these humans seem a little impolite.
Kevin: (turning back) Welcome to New York!
Larry: Hey Kevin! Can we come with you?
Larry: Aw c’mon! We want to see more parts of the real world.
Kevin: *thinks for a moment* All right! Come along.
(They walk around the city)
Bob: So uh Kevin, Have you ever faced any life problems.
Kevin: Oh you have no idea! I’ve had thousands of them!
Bob: Well, you know God is always looking out for..
Kevin: GOD does not EXIST!
Bob and Larry: What?
Kevin: I’m an atheist! Can’t you see?
Larry: What does that mean?
Kevin: It’s just a fancy way of saying nothing is possible. None of my dreams have been a success in my life.
Bob: Oh Kevin, We’re so sorry. I’m sure we can help you.
Kevin: You just try but you won’t get very far. You know I’m going home now.
Larry: Wait Kevin! I always wanted to see a real human house. May I come with you?
Kevin: (grunts) Fine!
Larry: Hey Bob, do you want to come.
Bob: I’ll be fine Larry. I want to tour around the city some more.
Larry: Okay, well you’ll keep in touch right?
Bob: Of course I will.
(Larry walks with Kevin to his car and drive over to his home in the suburbs.)
(As they’re driving into the suburbs.)
Pa Grape: (Drives by them) Afternoon Larry!
Larry: Oh, hey there.
(They pull over into Kevin’s home.)
Mr. Lunt (Outside in the front yard next door.) A hoy there Larry!
Larry: Uh hello. What are you doing here?
Mr. Lunt: All of the gang has followed you into the real world.
Larry: Oh, well.. That’s nice. Isn’t it cool?
Kevin: (calling from inside) hey Mr. pickle!
Larry: Oh well, it was nice seeing you. (Walks in)
Mr. Lunt: Hey, you too!
Larry: (too Kevin) Hey by the way, I’m a cucumber!
Kevin: Pickles ARE cucumbers!
Kevin: Cucumbers are every now and then are spiced into pickles by being dipped into stuff like salt and vinegar.
Larry: (cell phone makes text message sound.) (Answers it) Oh look a text message from…
(Note pops up on the TV.)
Larry: Bryce Martin of Charleston SC. (reads) Dear Bob and Larry, have you ever heard of the last supper? Can you tell me more about the.. Huh? The Holy Grail? He wants to known what it means. And he wants to know where it’s thrown. Kevin!
Larry: I.. I just got a message asking about where the Holy Grail was thrown. Apparently I have no idea. I’m afraid I’m going to have to go out of town.
Kevin: To where?
Kevin: West Virginia?
Larry: No, South Carolina.
Kevin: That’s hours from here! Do you even know how to drive?
Larry: Could you drive me there? I might need some help with the mystery solving.
Kevin: Are you crazy? I’m not a detective! Plus I don’t care about this Holy Grail!
Kevin: Okay but this is the last straw.
Larry: I won’t ask you take me anywhere again. Whatever you say.
Kevin: Good. Just please don’t be so silly. I need lots a concentration to drive.
(At a café in the city)
(Junior Asparagus, Laura Carrot and some of the other Veggie children are at a table together.)
Junior: Since when does the real world get so confusing?
Annie: I don’t know this is our first time here.
Junior: But I can’t even understand what the menu says.
Laura: I did hear that this world might not be the safest for us.
Percy Pea: Gee, There must be some way we can survive here.
(Screen moves over to another part of the café, with Jimmy and Jerry Gourd. While moving over, we see the parent characters interacting with each other at another table.)
Jimmy: Listen here, this nation is supposed to have food all over the place so we better make sure we keep up with the appetite.
Jerry: Jimmy I… I’m not sure that..
Jimmy: Oh but the real world is AWESOME! At least so far.
(Screen moves over again to another part.)
(Meet Danny Ansley [Emma Stone], looking at her computer)
(Bob enters and sits in the seat in front of her.)
Bob: Excuse me miss, I hate to be a bother but..
Danny: What do you think your doing? Can’t you see I’m busy?
Bob: Yes, but I just need help with..
Danny: I don’t have a time for any chitchat.
Bob: Is there anything wrong?
Danny: Bob the tomato? (Acts shocked) I watched your videos as child. How did you get to the real world?
Bob: It was Larry’s idea.
Danny: Where is he?
Bob: He’s visiting with our new friend Kevin Clint.
Danny: Kevin… I know that guy we went to school together.
Bob: He was kind of rude to us.
Danny: Kevin has a little trouble with believing. Maybe he’s just a little shy too.
Bob: (cell phone rings) (Answers it) Hello? Larry?
Larry: Bob, I just got this note asking about the Holy Grail.
Bob: The what?
Larry: You know. That cup Jesus used to drink out of.
Bob: What about it?
Larry: Bryce was asking about where it’s hidden and what it means.
Bob: Larry, that’s a tough situation to respond to. We don’t even know where it is.
Larry: That’s what I am trying to tell you Bob. I’m going out of town to find it.
Larry: I’m in the car with Kevin. He’s driving me to Charleston SC.
Bob: Oh my gosh! Hang on Larry! I’m going to catch up with you! (Hangs up) Miss what’s your name?
Danny: My name is Danielle but you can call me Danny. Everyone who knows me does.
Bob: Danny, that was Larry on the phone. He’s going Charleston. I’m afraid I have to go. I must catch up with him.
Danny: It’s a long way. Do you have a car?
Danny: I can drive you there. But first I will have to make a trip and pack.
Bob: Oh well, thanks.
Danny: I always have to make sure I’m traveling in style.
(They walk out of the café.)
(We move over to the other side of the world in Australia where Health Scientist Dr. Igor Quack [Javier Bardem] is up to no good.)
Quack: Curses! Fat kids! Fat kids! I’m sick of it! Why don’t parents make them eat their vegetables?
Co-Worker 1: Well, sure you know children’s taste buds have not been developed in order to handle bitter tastes.
Quack: Bitter tastes? Hmmm. Wait a minute! I’m glad you said. I have just decided to create a juice that give children a full serving of vegetables with plenty of protein and sugar with no calories. This will be sold all over the world and we will be rich!
Co-Worker 1: Sir, how is that possible? How will a juice for the whole world fit into one juicer?
Quack: That’s why I created this!
(Reveals the giant juicer.)
Quack: Behold! The Health Master 3000.
(Co-worker 3 dumps in a bunch of oranges and apples.)
Quack: It can shred skin, pop the seeds, remove pulp and cut through any fruits and veggies deep just like a professional would. Junk food obsession is over! Bwa ha ha ha!
(Quack puts a glass underneath the part where juice comes out. Juice comes out into it.)
Quack: (Tastes the juice.) Mmmm! Children are gonna love this!
Co-Worker 2: But sir that will nearly have to take up all the produce in the world to make plenty for the world.
Quack: (Looks his computer) What’s this? (Discovers the popularity of Veggietales and the characters in the real world.) Talking vegetables? No wonder kids won’t eat healthy! Hey I remember. My daughter hated those dudes! I know just what to do. Those little nincompoops are going down! This Health Master 3000 will be the death of VeggieTales! Bwa ha ha ha ha ha!
Co-worker 1- Dr. Quack, how will we get them?
Quack: I have new minions. They’ll take care of those freaks.
Co-worker 1: Where are they? (Looks behind him) Penguins?
Quack: Yes! All of you, GET THOSE VEGGIE FOOLS NOW and bring them here!
(Evil laugh goes on)
(Back to the other side. Larry and Kevin are arriving in Charleston.)
(At the French Huguenot Church, singer Amy Grant performs “Thy Word” until Kevin interrupts her so he can get some information about the Holy Grail.)
(I don’t know the dialogue part for this scene).
(Back in the Suburbs of NY, Bob is interacting with Danny while she is trying to pack for adventure.)
Bob: Danny, are you sure you’re going to need that much? We’re just going south.
Danny: (Danny packs like a fashion girl like what you see all the time in movies) I have never been good at packing and I never know what I might need. Have you got everything?
Bob: I packed everything I needed just before Larry and I entered your land of real things. Gee I thought this world wasn’t going to be appropriate for us to enter but it’s actually quite interesting to see where our videos were sent to over the years.
Danny: Okay I’m ready. No wait! I forgot my camera! (Runs to get it.)
(Bob looks into the camera silently.)
Danny: (comes back.) Okay now I’m ready.
(They walk outside and see Danny’s purple Mercedes Benz.)
Bob: That’s a nice looking car.
Danny: Thank you. I won it recently for winning a contest in high school. (Opens the doors) Hop in.
(As they are driving, Keith Green’s “You Put this Love in my Heart” plays. Both sing along.)
Danny: Oh no! I can’t concentrate with this! *turns off the radio* This car also has some neat features.
Bob: *looks at all the buttons* what do they all do?
Danny: I’ll show you. *presses one of the buttons causing Bob’s seat to flip over.
Bob: Oh no. (While flipping it back over.) How long before we arrive in Charleston?
Danny: . We’re nearly half way. You know I think better start contrating on the road. You and Larry have been so helpful in my childhood that I am will to help you….(Air conditioner turns on.) (Danny jumps) Hey! Enough playing with the buttons!
Bob: Oh Danny I am so sorry. I was just feeling hot. (Turns off the air conditioner.)
Danny: Loud noises can startle me if you didn’t know.
Bob: I understand Danny *sounding sad*.
(Car is then shown to driver far away from the viewers.)
(Larry and Kevin are still getting information from Amy Grant. When she hands them a 20-dollar bill, Larry is a little confused. She tells them about Notre Dame in Paris and will be the one to tell about the Holy Grail just keep the dollar with them and do not lose it.)
(Jimmy and Jerry Gourd are walking around in Charleston.)
Jimmy: Well I must say, the south seems a little nicer than the north.
Jerry: Yeah I agree, there’s warm weather, there’s more peaceful sights, there’s….
(Quacks penguin army captures both of them.)
(All of the characters roaming around in Charleston are captured at this point.) (Including Archibald) (Bob and Larry are still out in about in the world.)
(Now we see Danny and Bob arriving in Charleston. They have some Chick fil a products in the car showing that they must’ve drove through while on the way. Matt Redman’s “Better is One Day is playing on the radio.)
Bob: So this must be Charleston. It’s beautiful! (Sees Larry and Kevin in the distance.) Hey isn’t that Larry?
(Danny pulls over at them.) (She rolls down the window.)
Bob: Wait! Danny! We can’t park here. The sign over there says so.
Kevin: Danny? What are you doing here?
Danny: My new friend and I were following you. We thought you and the cucumber could use some help. Hop in. (They both get in her car.)
Kevin: (shows Danny the $20 bill.) I just got this from a lady at the church. She said that if we hold this up to the ceiling at Notre Dome, it will show us the mystery to the Holy Grail. I think we’re going to have to go to Paris.
Danny: Paris? Oh I always wanted to go to Paris. It’s the world capital of fashion!
(In the back seat.)
Larry: Bob, look what I found while I was in the church.
Bob: (Looks at the Newspaper talking about Quacks new invention.) It looks like this guy is coming with a… wait a minute it’s says something about us too.
Larry: I know but it doesn’t make since.
Bob: Well Larry, I think… (Stops and they both began to notice that someone out there is trying to capture and kill them.)
(Bob and Larry scream at each other, scared)
Kevin: What’s going on back there!
Bob: This is terrible! We have to warn the others! This trip is going to be more dangerous than I thought.
Kevin: Seriously, what’s happening?
Larry: Someone out there is trying to kill us! Drive you guys! We have to run away.
Danny: Sure we can we have to go to the airport anyway. (begins to drive away from the town.)
Larry: Where are we going?
Danny: To Paris.
Bob: How will we get there? It’s too far.
Kevin: We’re on our way to the airport.
(In Dr. Quack’s laboratory)
Co-Worker 1: Sir, we found someone for your collection. (Jimmy and Jerry Gourd are brought in.)
Quack: Why hello you guys, are you ready for scanning?
Jimmy: Uh no
Jerry: Are you going to kill us?
Quack: Pipe down! (Scans them.) Well you are one of the best sources of Vitamin A.
Jimmy: What do you mean?
Quack: You guys are meant to bring beautiful, smooth skin and also give shining sparkling eyes.
Jerry: Well sure, we have….
Quack: NO! I MEANT WHEN PEOPLE EAT YOU!!!
Jimmy and Jerry: (scream) (Taken to another room.)
Co-Worker 1: There’s another one.
(Archibald is bought in.)
Quack: Ahhh, let’s see what you have to give. (Scans him)
Archibald: Wh- what do you think your doing?
Quack: Complete! As you see, children do not get enough fiber in the their diet. You will be able bring some improvement to help them with their thoughts and overall energy.
Archibald: Fiber? I don’t understand.
Quack: Ah ha ha ha ha ha ha!
(Archibald is thrown into a hanging cage and notices a bunch of other Veggie tales characters are in hanging cages too.)
Archibald: Oh this can’t be good.
(At the Airport)
Danny: Have you got everything?
Kevin: Of course I have everything can’t you tell?
Larry: Do you think Dr. Quack will find us here?
Bob: I, I don’t know.
(As they try to go through security.)
Policewoman (looking at the screen.): What is that?
Policeman (next to her.): Sir, I think we’ve got a weapon.
Leader Policeman: Hang on (looks around in Larry’s suitcase and pulls out a chocolate bunny.) I’m sorry. No outside food on the plane.
Leader Policeman: It will end up carrying a bunch of bugs leaving germs everywhere. You certainly don’t want that. (Throws away the box.)
Larry: Gee, that was in case I needed a snack on my trip.
Bob: Larry, time to go.
Larry: See ya!
(They walk outside and get on a private jet charter.)
Larry: Wow I like it in here! It’s like we’re completely famous in the real world.
Bob: You told us so Larry.
Danny: This is to die for! It’s fancy Nancy all the way!
Kevin: I supposed so.
(Flight Attendant gives instructions.)
Larry: Who knows what it’s like on a real airplane. What could happen?
(As the plane takes off, Bob and Larry scream.)
Kevin: Guys cut it out! It can’t be that bad.
(After the plane takes off.)
Bob: Well that wasn’t so bad for our first real plane take off.
Danny: Ow! My back hurts. Has anyone got any frozen peas?
Kevin: I think I might have some in my.. (Notices his backpack has moving bumps and tips over. What the heck is going on? I know I have frozen peas in.. (Unzips it.)
(The French Peas pop out.)
Jean Claude: We may be peas but we are not frozen!
Kevin: (yelps and bumps his head on the overhead compartment.) Ow!
Bob: Kevin, are you all right? (Notices the peas.) What are you guys doing here?
Phillipe: Ahhh! Mister Bob!
Jean Claude: (looks around.) So this is the real world jet?
Phillipe: We like it.
Kevin: (takes out an ice pack.) Well I have this. (Hands it to Danny.)
Danny: Thanks. (Puts on her headphones and falls asleep.)
Kevin: (ducks while trying to sit back down.) Ooo ah oo ah ha ha! Don’t want to do that again.
Bob: (Sits back down in his seat and cell makes text message sound.)
Larry: Bob what’s going on?
Bob: Someone has an issue. It’s a note from Lucas Hepburn of Los Angles California who says his friend Ryan has problem. He says that Ryan doesn’t believe in God and thinks he’s making excuses for it due to his selfish behavior and doubting everything people tell him.
Larry: That sounds like Kevin.
Bob: Sounds like we another mission to do. Tell everyone that not believing in God is no excuse.
Larry: But Bob, we’re on vacation in the real world. How are we going to teach another lesson?
Bob: I know this is a time for us to learn but we can still teach the real world a little something.
Kevin: (Turns back.) Did someone just mention my name back there?
Larry: Yeah, it looks like someone else is having the same life problems you’re having.
Kevin: And what might that be?
Larry: Uhhh.. Being a doubting Thomas?
(The French Peas are watching Monty Python and the Holy Grail [in silent motion] with Edith Piaf’s “Non Je Ne Regrette Rien” in the background.)
(Back with Bob and Larry discussing the problem.)
Kevin: What did you call me?
Larry: Uh, nothing.
(On a smartphone, a video of Ewan McGregor dressed a tomato is playing. He gets kicked the stomach. The French Peas laugh their heads off at it.)
Bob: (Peaking over) Poor tomato.
Jean Claude: Ha-ha that is hilarious!
(Airplane Beep goes off.) (Danny wakes up.)
(At Dr. Quack’s lab.)
Quack: Where are the rest of my recipes? They could any in the world!
Co Worker 2: Mr. Quack sir, got news. It seems that some of your ingredients are heading to Paris.
Quack: What? (Sees the characters on the screen.) Bingo! Just what I was looking for. Now which one of them shall I get first? I suggest get that tomato and that cucumber! They are worst trouble out there!
Co Worker 2: Sir, I’m afraid we should get the peas. They’re easier to catch.
Quack: I don’t care! Catch just try to capture all of them!
(Back on the plane announcements are made in preparation for landing.) (As soon after they land, they’re on the metro on the way into the city. The peas ride on Danny’s shoulders the whole way.)
(They get into the Notre Dame and a choir is singing.)
Bob: Larry do you still have the dollar?
Larry: (Looks around.) No, I think I lost it!
Danny: (sounding bored) I put it in my purse. (Takes it out)
(Kevin holds up the dollar and see’s a map of Israel.)
Kevin: What’s this?
Bob: What do you see Kev?
Kevin: It’s a map of Israel.
Larry: That must be where the Holy Grail is.
Jean Claude: Did you say the Holy Grail?
Danny: (Sounding annoyed) This is going to be a very pleasant day.
(They still discuss it until they see penguins.)
Bob: Are those penguins standing behind us!
Larry: *Looks and recognizes their position according to what he found in the news article. Those aren’t just penguins, THEY’RE MINIONS!!!
(Penguins see them.)
Larry: Kevin we have to get out of here!
Kevin: What? What now!
Larry: It’s Minions!! Lets go! (Pushes them to leave.)
(They all run out and take one of those small European cars.)
Kevin: At mercy!! What is going on with you?
Larry: Just drive! Anywhere but near those penguins!!
(They take off all over Paris.) (Avril Lavigne’s “Runaway” plays in the background.)
(They pass an outdoor café in which Madame Blueberry and Petunia Rhubarb are sitting at.)
Madame Blueberry: (sees them go by.) My word!
(They drive down bumpy stairs.)
(The music stops as soon as they run into the Eiffel Tower.) (That’s the end of the chasing and the car has stopped.)
Bob: (feeling dizzy) Well that was hard-core.
Larry: (looks around) I think we’ve lost them.
(French police sirens go off.)
Bob: What’s going on?
Officer: Are you guys okay? We saw you in the distance.
Kevin: (talking to them with the window rolled down on Danny’s side.) We’re fine, we were just being chased and had to get away.
Danny: (Touches her shoulders.) What happened to my sweetie peas? (This indicates that the minions got them.)
Officer: Can to you describe to us what was chasing you?
Danny: Our friends back here said they were penguins.
Officer: Penguins? What the?
*In the backseat*
(Bob and Larry roll down their window.)
Officer: Holy Moly You’re Here!! LOOK EVERYONE IT’S THOSE GUYS FROM VEGGIETALES!!
(Everyone in the park acts shocked.) (They come up as fans taking pictures and wanting autographs.)
Larry: More attackers!
(It begins to thunder shower.)
(In Dr. Quack’s science lab.)
Co Worker 1: Sir, we found them.
Quack: Bring’em in
(They do so.)
Quack: (Notices) Ohhhh! Bonjour Frenchies! How what a success!
Jean Claude: How dare you bring us here?
Quack: Oh you’ll see. Now lets scan you.
(Peas look at each other in funny surprised looks while scanner goes.)
Quack: Okay my machine says you are filled with a good source of Vitamin C. Kids will never miss another day of school again because you give them what it takes prevent immune system issues.
(Peas start laughing.)
Jean Claude: You think we can stop the illness.
Phillipe: Why it is a natural…
(Peas have the funny surprised look again.)
Quack: The immune system needs your help.
Co- worker 1: There’s still more.
(Enter Junior Asparagus who was probably captured elsewhere)
Quack: Another asparagus? Why this going to be a helpful fiber boost!
Junior: (scared) What are you doing?
Quack: Oh you have no idea. Why children everywhere need your good old minerals.
(Junior is thrown in the cage in which is the same one his parents are already in.)
Junior: Mom, dad! I’ve never been so scared. What’s he going to do to us?
Dad Asparagus: Uh gee I don’t know.
Junior: Oh Bob! Oh Larry! Wherever you are! You better hurry! *He knows already that they are the ones who can definitely save them all.*
(At a hotel in Paris.)
Larry: What are we gonna do? Our friends are being kidnapped. Bob, you were right. Maybe coming into the real world wasn’t a good idea.
Bob: Oh don’t worry Larry. We’ve still got a little ways to go.
Larry: Oh yeah, I bet you’re talking about the Holy Grail.
Kevin: It will never be found!
Bob: There’s no need to doubt everything Kev. There’s always a change for good to rise up against the bad.
Kevin: You’ve got to be kidding!
(Danny comes out in a bathrobe and towel on her head after taking a bubble bath sometime in this scene.)
(In a royal town in Israel)
Kevin: Guys? Guys I don’t think I can go any further! It’s just no use!
Larry: But we’ve got to find the grail!
Kevin: I just want to know whether Jesus even existed.
Bob: Kevin, you may not believe that but it doesn’t mean something isn’t real.
Kevin: I know finding that cup is really important to you guys. But what’s the point if it’s going to take us forever?
Larry: (See’s a market with a Holy Grail for sale.) Hey! Look! It’s the Holy Grail! We found it!
Bob: Huh? Where?
Danny: I think there’s a rock in my shoe.
(Kevin and Danny sit on a stool.)
Kevin: Let me take a look. (Takes off Danny’s shoe and shakes it.)
(Khalil the Caterpillar falls out.)
Khalil: Eww! Does anyone ever wash their feet anymore? (Slithers away.)
Kevin: (still shaking and tiny rock falls out.) You’re right you did have a rock in your shoe.
(Bob and Larry at the market.)
Larry: I can’t believe it! We’ve come all this way and we find our real prize for the very first time!
Bob: Larry I don’t think…
Larry: (picks up the grail on the counter.) This is great Bob! We can finally…(notices a “Made in Hong Kong” label on the bottom.) Oh no! This is a phony!
Lady at the market stand: Is there anything wrong?
Larry: No ma’am. (Puts the fake grail back.) I’m good.
(Bob and Larry walk back to Kevin and Danny.)
Danny: Any luck you guys?
Kevin: I told you! This is like looking for a needle on a haystack!
Larry: Yieek! A needle on a haystack? Why would anyone look for one of those?
Bob: Larry, that’s just a figure of speech.
Larry: Oh! Looks like I’ll just have to pray.
Kevin: Are you crazy? He can’t hear you!
Bob: (Notices a hole with a down staircase.) Do you suppose that will answer any of our questions?
Larry: (see’s it.) Yes! Oh thank you God! He’s answered our prayers!
Kevin: Oh brother!
(They walk over there.)
Larry: Gee, it’s looks a little spooky down there.
Bob: Larry, God is still looking out for us.
Kevin: He is not!
(They all walk down and come to a little gate at the bottom.)
Larry: Say, what’s this?
Bob: I don’t know Larry.
Kevin: It’s a dead end! Come on let’s go!
Bob: No Kevin! This is no time to throw in towel!
Larry: (Sees a code wheel.) Look at this.
Kevin: What is that?
Danny: Wait a minute; I think this might have a code to it. Let me see here. (Turns the wheel.)
Kevin Are you sure you know what you’re doing?
Danny: Of course I do. (Gets the right code and the door opens.)
Bob: This must be a secret passage.
(They walk through.) (A TV roles down.)
Larry: W-What’s going on?
(Mr. Nezzer appears on the screen.)
Mr. Nezzer: Attention everyone! Reporting this is the cave of holiness. Here you’ll find lots goodies from the bible. In particular, the Holy Grail is thought to be hidden here. You see it was… (TV turns to static.)
Bob: What just happened?
Larry: Oh don’t know. (Gasps) Doctor Quack must’ve taken him!
(Bob and Larry scream.)
Danny: Relax you guys!
Larry: Oh, right.
Kevin: How are we going to find that cup in here? It could have been buried anywhere.
Larry: That’s why I bought my tracking device. (Pulls it out)
Bob: A medal detector?
Larry: Yes! We’ll find it in no time! Wait a minute. I forgot I packed two. (Pulls it out)
Bob: Well I-I guess I could use that one.
Larry: Sure you can Bob. (Hands it over)
(As they start searching)
Kevin: You know you’re going to have bad luck finding it in here.
Larry: Don’t be silly Kevin. It’s got to- (Detector beeps) I think I’ve got it! (Starts to dig and finds a coin.) Ahhhh! It’s just a rusty old coin!
Danny: Could you keep it down? Someone might find us in here.
Bob: (Detector beeps) I’ve got it! (Digs and pulls out a ring.) This isn’t it either. (Throws it)
Danny: (Catches the ring.) I think I can use this. (Puts it away.)
Larry: (Detector beeps) I’ve done it again! (Digs and finds a makeup brush.)
Kevin: Guys, I told you! It’s no use!
Larry: Kevin, when will you ever learn that not believing in God is no excuse to disbelieve everything else?
Kevin: What? That’s reality!
Bob: You should be ashamed of yourself Kev.
Kevin: Guys, what’s the point?
Bob: (comes closer to him) We are trying to say that your excuses will not get you any far. Look, you may not believe in God but he’s still out there knowing you’re alive and he’s looking down on you with great plans for the rest of your life. Even if something does go wrong that, doesn’t mean it’s the end of the world or anything. Also, be nice. No matter what, God wants us to be kind to everyone. That includes you. As Larry and I always say, God made you special and loves you very much. Even you Kevin.
Kevin: That was a beautiful speech you just made. I could cry but I just can’t and I don’t know why.
Bob: You learn something new everyday Kev. You always do.
Larry: Come on Bob! We still need to find the treasure!
Bob: Oh yes right. (Tries to walk up to Larry.) We have to- (Stops and the detector beeps.) I’ve got something.
Larry: (Comes up to the same spot.) Could this be what we wanted?
Bob: Lets find out together.
Larry: This ground is a little hard. (Cracks it open and it comes off like a lid.) (Sees the Holy Grail) Bob, we found it! Ick! It’s all rusty. (Pulls it out.)
Bob: Larry, you know that thing has been around for thousands of years.
Larry: Oh, I knew that. Hey look it’s got a little message on it. (Tries to read it.) I have no idea what this says. It looks all mixed up.
Danny: Let me take a look. (Looks at it) You’re right. This message is in Aramaic.
Bob: Let me take a look. (Reads it) It says. I am the way. I am the life. Let not your heart be troubled. Ye believe in God, believe also in me.
Quack: Well, well, well! Somebody has revealed the secret. He he he he he!!
Larry: Dr. Quack!
Quack: I’ve got you now!
Danny: What the… Who are you?
Quack: Why, I am Dr. Igor Quack and those two friends of yours belong to ME!!
Kevin: Oh these guys are nothing. They’re just…
Quack: You’re not gonna last an hour.
Larry: Oh yeah, well will this do any good? (Shows the Holy Grail)
Bob: Larry, No!
Quack: Is that what I think it is? Hand it over!
Quack: Yes! If you don’t give it, everyone will know the Holy secret and kids will never be healthy. (Takes out a reversing remote.)
Kevin: What are gonna do?
Quack: You guys, all of you are coming with me!
(Quack presses a button zapping them out of the location and all end up in his science lab in Australia.)
Larry: (Looks around.) Where are we?
Bob: I have no idea Larry but this doesn’t look like a safe place.
Larry: How could you do this to us?
Quack: I should have known this was coming. My daughter Gina, had lots of issues. She hated vegetables.
Gina: (in flashback) I HATE VEGETABLES!!!
Quack: Even you guys.
Gina: (in flashback) (Points to Bob and Larry on TV) Especially THOSE GUYS!!
Quack: Yet she was very picky.
Gina: (in flashback hits and punches her plate of veggies and screams.)
Quack: All she wanted was danger and junk.
Gina: (in flashback) WHERE’S MY COKE?!!
Quack: (flashback begins to stop.) Gina became nothing but the champion of dangerous medicine and beverages. Before you knew it, she was gone.
Larry: That’s horrible. At least her troubles are probably over by now and-
Quack: DON’T BE SILLY!!
Bob: (looks at Larry with a mad look.)
Quack: Something tells me, every child will be like her if they don’t eat vegetables. And that’s why all your friends are (turns on the light showing Bob and Larry all the other VeggieTales characters in hanging cages.) DOOMED!!
Junior: (Calling down) Bob! Larry!
Bob: You won’t get away with this.
Quack: I already have. Hit it!
(Dr. Quack sings a song about what the characters have done to children and preparation for their death. It’s the same tune as The Bunny Song.)
Bob: That was the worst song ever. Worse than the “What have we learned” song.
Larry: Where’s Danny and Kevin?
Quack: That’s not important now. Guards lock those two up and start up that machine now! When the bottom of your cages open in 1 hour you all will fall in and this will only hurt… A LOT! Ha ha ha ha! (Walks out of the room.)
(Kevin and Danny are in danger too. They are about to be locked up in a room and not escape. They are being tied up together not facing each other.)
Danny: Have you seen the grail?
Kevin: No. It might be lost again.
Quack: (walks in) And you guys. And you will not escape.
Danny: Why are you doing this?
Quack: Oh don’t ask me. Oooh, what’s that I see in your pocket? (Pulls out the grail hiding in Kevin’s pocket.)
Danny: (to Kevin) You had it?
Quack: Not anymore. (Throws it)
Quack: Ah ha ha! Make your self at home. (Walks out of the room with his co- worker leaving Kevin and Danny alone in the room.)
(We are back with Bob and Larry being chased by Dr. Quack’s penguin minions around the room.)
(Larry hides behind an old closet while Bob is still trying to get away.)
Larry: Man, this is all my fault! I never should’ve planned to come here! You were right Bob.
Bob: (Still being chased.) Larry I need your help!
Larry: What would God ever do? What would Larryboy ever do? Hey wait a minute. (Changes quickly into Larryboy.) Yes! I am that hero! They call me Larryboy! (Pops out from behind the closet.) Take this you kidnapping penguins! (Starts shooting a laser, which scares the penguins away.)
Bob: Ha! Way to go Larryboy!
(In Kevin and Danny’s room.)
Danny: (crying) What are we going to do? The Grail is lost again and our friends are in danger. No no no no! We are totally blowing it.
Kevin: You know… Bob was right. I was a little over the top and rude over my beliefs.
Danny: (Trying to stop crying.) You really mean it?
Kevin: Yes I do. I really never did know any better.
Danny: Neither did I years ago.
Kevin: I’m sure we have all been that way.
Danny: No more than that, could you help us get out of here?
Kevin: I will. No doubt about it. Stand up for me please.
(They both stand up with the rope still tied around them.)
Kevin: Can you feel where the knot is?
Kevin: I can too. Help me untie it for me.
(Both work together to untie the rope and get themselves out.)
Danny: That was a piece of cake. Now we have to look for the Holy Grail- AGAIN.
(In the Veggie Tales characters room.)
Petunia: Larryboy, you’ve got to get us out of here!
Archie: I’m still your butler, Alfred. Please help us!
Larryboy: You’ve got it! But how?
Bob: I assume the key is in one of those drawers.
Larryboy: (sees the old dresser) I’ll find it.
(Searches through each of the three drawers.)
Larryboy: Where is it? Where is it?
(Key is found in the middle drawer.)
Larryboy: Oh there it is.
Bob: Larryboy, how will you get up there and how will everyone…
Larryboy: I bought a jet pack with me. (Pulls it out) It’s fully charged to last in a half hour. (Looks at everyone in the cages.) I will come and open your cages. Then I will swing you guys and don’t jump out until I’ve got the signal that you will land safely on the stand right over there.
Larryboy: (starts up the jet pack and begins to fly.) I’m coming there after you! You first!
Archie: Ahh yes! We are still a team!
Larryboy: (swings the cage) Now jump.
Archie: (Jumps and lands on the stand.) I’m still alive! (Walks down the stairs to the ground where Bob is.)
Larryboy: All right. Who’s next?
(With Danny and Kevin.)
Danny: (Searching around the room for the Holy Grail.) I can’t find it? Where could it possibly be?
Kevin: I’ll tell you what. I’ll keep looking for the grail; you call the cops.
Danny: Okay then. (Runs over to the phone.)
(Kevin still peeks around and lifting up everything.)
Kevin: Come on baby, where are you?
(He finds the Holy Grail in a pile of thrown out metal.)
Kevin: I found it baby!
(In the other room all the characters have gotten out of the cages and just a couple more to go.)
Larryboy: Okay you guys.
Jimmy: Are you ready Jerry?
(Jimmy and Jerry jump out and scream. They land on the stand safely.)
Jimmy: Hey, we’re alive!
Larryboy: Almost there. Just one more. (Jet pack makes a beep sound telling that it’s almost out of fuel.) Uh oh.
Petunia: Larryboy! You still have to get me!
Larryboy: No! Hold on Petunia! I’m coming! (Fly’s over)
Bob: Hurry your fuel is going low!
Larryboy: (While unlocking and opening the cage.) Oh no! Oh no! Oh no! Hey I’ve got it!
(All of the characters notice Larryboy carrying Petunia out and over to where everyone is.) (Fuel goes out just in time.)
Larryboy: Phew! That was a close one.
(Cages open from the bottom like Dr. Quack had said but no one is in them any more.)
Larryboy: I have to take care of that machine. (Walks up the stairs to the stand.)
Archie: Larryboy! What do you think you’re doing?
Larryboy: What’s this? (Pulls out a hairdryer.) This will take care of everything!
Scooter: No! No! You use a hairdryer to chop up in the juicer! You’ll blow us all up!
Larryboy: Stand back everyone! (Throws the hairdryer in the juicer and runs down.) Hey where did my hairdryer go? Oh well.
Archie: Look out everyone! There’s going to be a massive…
Pa Grape: You’ve saved us again!
Quack: (Wakes up and see’s the characters out of their cages in the security camera.) Holy Lima Beans! Those Pea brains! That is Impossible!
(In that room.)
Junior: But what do we do about Quack?
Larryboy: Gee I don’t… (See’s a massive clothes dryer.) I know.
(Now we are at the part where Dr. Quack is about to be outsmarted.) (The massive dryer in now in place of where the juicer was and he doesn’t know. The room is dark.)
Quack: (Comes in looking for them.) Are right you silly little produce. Where are you? I could just squeeze those little lives out of you.
(Flashlight turns on pointing to Laura.)
Laura: You hoo! Over here!
Quack: (Runs after)
(Flashlight points to Madame Blueberry.)
Madame Blueberry: No! You hoo! Dr. Quack sir!
Quack: (Runs up the stairs.) Come out! Come out where-
Jean Claude: Booyah! (Whacks Dr. Quack in the butt with a shovel.)
Quack: (Falls into the dryer and screams.)
(Lights turn back on.)
Larryboy: (Comes out.) Dr. Quack, I think those clothes are too big for you. (Sets the dryer to shrink.) Let’s shrink them up a little.
Quack: (Spins around in the dryer.) NO! THESE CLOTHES ARE LINE DRY ONLYYYYYY!!!
(Larryboy opens the dryer and Quack falls out with his clothes all too tight.)
Quack: Ouch! Why you little nincompoops!
(Cops barge in.)
Larryboy: He’s all yours officer.
(Cops pull Dr. Quack away.)
Quack: (Screams real hard as he’s pulled away.)
(Kevin and Danny come back in.)
Kevin: Are you guys ok… Hey how did you get out?
Bob: Larry, Uhh Larryboy worked hard to free us all.
Larry: Indeed I did.
Kevin: I’m proud of you.
Bob: Kev, we are proud of you.
Kevin: For what?
Bob: For becoming more self-confident.
Danny: He helped me free us both from being tied together in the room full of junk.
Larry: We knew you could do it.
Bob: Hey! Lets see if that computer over there could show us a verse.
(The “What have we learned “song starts to play but only for short period of time. It turns off by a click of the no button of a cell phone. This gives is us the thought that it was a cell phone ringer.)
Phillipe: My bad!
Bob: Someone forgot to turn off their phone again. Mac do you have a verse for us? Uh Mac?
Danny: Don’t be ridiculous. That computer ain’t alive.
Bob: It’s okay Danny. Mac can be a little shy.
Bob: (Reads the verse.) Because you have seen me, have you believed? Blessed are they who did not see, and yet believed. John 20, 19-31.
Larry: So, what does that mean?
Bob: The bible says that no matter what, even if you don’t believe that doesn’t mean there are excuses to be disbelieving in everything or being mean to others. We should all keep in mind to be kind and trust what will happen. Stay on the positive side! Also, even though you haven’t seen something doesn’t mean it’s not true.
Larry: Your right Bob. We should all keep the positive side.
Bob: That includes you too, Kevin. Tell your friends that.
Kevin: Oh I will. I know just what to do from now on.
Junior: I forgot to ask. Did you find the Holy Grail?
(All the characters are begging and are excited to see the Holy Grail.)
Annie: Come on, show us the Grail.
Kevin: I’ve got right here. (Takes it out.)
(Everyone goes crazy and excited.)
Bob: Wait a minute.
Bob: Dr. Quack was kind right about kids having health problems these days.
Mr. Lunt: What do we do? Children can’t eat us.
Larry: Well I hear that kids don’t get out for physical activity much anymore. They would rather watch TV and play computer games. That’s why I created this. (Shows his invention of a machine where children can pretend to ride a bike and watch TV at the same time.) See, now kids do their favorite indoor-activities and exercise at the same time.
Bob: Larry, I think there already is an invention for that.
Larry: Oh, well the children could cuddle us.
Bob: Larry, how will that work?
Larry: Well, I understand that the human body likes to be touched and hugged. So, I thought maybe if the kids cuddled us, our vitamins would be injected into them. It’s a little term I learned recently. Osmosis!
Larry: Yes, Osmosis. So what do you say?
Bob: I guess it’s worth a try.
Danny: I’m proud of you too Kev.
Kevin: Shall we?
(The two are about to kiss.)
Jean Claude: Hey! (They freeze on kissing.) This is a kid’s movie. No kissing aloud!
Phillipe: I sure could use one.
Danny: All right. (Picks the French peas up and kisses them in a French tone accent.)
(Bob begins to narrate)
Bob: So, that some’s up our mystery adventure in the real world. But there is still more to come. (Showing Dr. Quack at the judge.)Dr. Quack believed that he didn’t deserve to go to jail. So the judge ordered him to do community service.
Judge (Phil Vischer): Dr. Igor Quack! I find you guilty! You are now sentenced to 20 years of community service!
Quack: No! No! No! Noooooooooooo!!
(He is now shown cleaning up a produce aisle at a grocery store.)
Store Manager: Hurry up now! I want this aisle clean in 10 minutes!
Quack: I’m going as fast as I can! (Gets a 7-11 slushy dropped on him.) AHH! SON OF A BRUSSEL SPOUT!!
(The French peas up above laugh hard.)
Jean Claude: Take that Cingle! (Blows a raspberry.)
(At an event in NYC, kids are in line to socialize with the characters and get vitamins from osmosis)
Bob (narrating): You are probably wondering, did we ever go home to our own world? Sure we did but getting back wasn’t as easy as we thought.
Larry: (runs himself into the front of the camera and face is squished.) Oops! That’s the real REAL world. Hey wait, don’t go! You haven’t seen my name on the screen yet! (Slides off.)
(During the credits, “God of Wonders” by Mac Powell and Danielle Young, “Come, Now is the Time to Worship” by Phillips, Craig and Dean, and some other song sung by the Veggie-tales characters play. Also a bunch animated drawing of the characters will fly by.)
