Speaker Dialogue
[The episode begins with K.O. looking at his Pow Card collection, with the frame focusing on each card as he talks about them before showing the full binder.]
K.O. Hmm, Mr. Gar is level eleven, so he's way past Sparko's level three. But Sparko has that really cool power move, so—
Carol [off-screen] Ready to go, K.O.?
[The binder lowers, revealing K.O. is sitting in the back seat of his mom's car.]
K.O. Oh. Yeah, Mom.
Carol I know coming to work with your mom isn't too cool for a boy your age, but your babysitter's fighting the Flu this week.
K.O. [Holds up their respective Pow Cards] Again? The Flu doesn't stand a chance against Judy! She's like the toughest fighter in the neighborhood!
[The frame pans to Punching Judy beating up the Flu in the background, sending it flying with an uppercut to land on the car's windshield.]
K.O. See? Eugh!
[The Flu gets wiped off the windshield. Punching Judy starts running after it.]
Punching Judy Sorry, Carol!
Carol Go get 'em, hon!
[Carol starts buckling her seatbelt]
Carol We better get out of here before things turn really ugly! Destination, K.O.?
[The scene cuts on each word- from the ignition, the tailpipe, and finally K.O. himself.]
K.O. Lakewood. Plaza. Turbo!
[Tires squeal as the scene cuts to a bird's eye view of Lakewood Plaza Turbo. Animals are squeaking and chirping. The title card appears.]
K.O. [Looking out the window, smiling and eyes darting around before he shakes his head] Oh! Can't get distracted. [Opens Pow Card collection
Carol If you train hard enough K.O., you can be one, too!
K.O. [Looks up from his Pow Card book] Huh? [Slightly sorrowful] You're just saying that 'cause you're my mom...
Carol Ha! Maybe. But remember this, K.O. You don't start out as a hero. You become one.
K.O. [Shocked] I can become a hero? [He imagines his potential future self in a stylized scene] But where do I begin? Will I wake up as a hero one day? Do I get a cool transformation sequence? [Scene returns to the car] Or maybe I just need a change of clothes. Or maybe I need... [Looks at Mr. Gar's card] less clothes?
Carol [Pulls up to the plaza and gets out with K.O.] Everyone in that binder of yours came from humble beginnings, K.O. I mean, even Mr. Gar had to work hard to become the hero he is today.
K.O. I don't know about that. I bet he was always level eleven.
Carol Mmm, not when I first met him.
[She walks to the right as K.O. follows]
K.O. [Shocked] You know Mr. Gar?
Carol Of course! He runs the whole plaza. [Slightly muttering] Kinda hard to miss him. [She turns and looks up, covering her eyes] Look, there he is now!
[K.O. looks at the sky and gasps; a flying car drops down from the sky and Mr. Gar comes out by kicking the roof and front-flipping out. His hero facts are displayed briefly.]
Mr. Gar [Shouting] Employees!
[Enid and Rad swoop in from the side, standing at attention]
Enid & Rad [In unison] Yes, sir, Mr. Gar, sir!
Mr. Gar We got a stack of last month's magazines to throw out...
K.O. [In awe, while Mr. Gar continues off-screen] He's just too cool!
Mr. Gar the front! Step on it, people! Let's go, go, go!
[Enid and Rad race out to do their duty.]
Mr. Gar [Muttering] Mondays, am I right?
Carol [Clears throat] Morning, Gar!
[Mr. Gar is literally petrified by Carol's presence before his head breaks free to look at her.]
Mr. Gar [Stuttering] Uh, uh, morning, Carol! [She leans down to grab and hold up K.O. while he waves] and, uh, Carol's offspring.
[Carol puts down K.O. and the two start walking]
K.O. [Looking back at Mr. Gar] It was nice to meet you! [Turning back with clenched fists] Wow! Maybe if I hang around here long enough, Mr. Gar's hero-ness will rub off on me.
Carol Eh, you could try that, but I'd rather stick to the classic methods.
[They are in front of the Fitness Dojo, which they enter. Three women gasp at them.]
Ginger Carol! Don't tell me that's your boy!
Carol K.O., you remember Gertie, Ginger, and Gladys, don't you?
[Carol hands K.O. to Gertie, who proceeds to hug him while she goes to set up.]
Gertie Aww!
K.O. Of course. How could I forget my mom's best students?
[The women laugh, and K.O. drops to the floor.]
K.O. Guess what! I'm going to become a hero!
Gladys Aww! K.O., you're too much.
Carol [Standing up, wiping her hands] Okay, we're set to begin, class!
[The women ignore her, still adoring K.O.]
Carol Class!? [sighs in frustration, crossing arms and walking]
K.O. [While dancing]] Ha, ha, ha! Me!
[A smash is heard off-screen while Carol punches her last plank. When the frame pans, it poofs into dust.]
Carol [With false surprise] Oh, no! My last plank! Darn it! K.O., I'm gonna need you to go down to the bodega and fetch me some more planks. A-and get a little something for yourself. [Kisses K.O.]
K.O. [Blushes and smiles
[Carol pushes him out and closes the door.]
K.O. [Thinking] My first heroic quest. [Talking] You picked the right hero for the job, Mommy.
[K.O. repeatedly blows raspberries while he goes down to Mr. Gar's bodega. The scene pans out to show several heroes in front of the bodega when he gets there.]
K.O. [Shocked] Whoa! So many heroes! [Gasps; as he says each name, he shows the corresponding Pow Card.] Sparko, Shy Ninja!
[Shy Ninja vanishes with smoke and leaves behind a rubber duck. Nick Army and Joff the Shaolin Monk exit the bodega.]
Nick Army Just picked up some nukes, handful of 'nades...
K.O. [Over Nick] Nick Army and Joff the Shaolin Monk!
Nick Army ...never did anything.
K.O. This is the most beautiful day of my life. [He laughs and drops the Pow Cards as he runs towards the bodega, going back to pick them up before continuing. He stops in front of the door and reads the poster. The frame pans around him as he talks.] "Everything you need to be a hero." This is it. This is how I become a hero! [The screen pauses briefly as he poses, holding up the credit card, before he goes in.] It's time! Haha! [He goes up to a rack of 'Lazer Swordz' and takes one] L-L-L-Lazer Sword! [Swings it around while making extra sound effects, before cutting to the next item] F-F-F-Flame gauntlets! [Puts one on each hand before using them and setting the shelf on fire. He then moves to a stack of towels and takes the one on the bottom.] B-B-B-Bottom towel! Ba-chu-chu-chu— [He slips on the mess he made as he tries to prance towards the counter] Whoa!
The items he was carrying go flying as he falls. Rad enters foreground.
Rad Oh, great. I spent the last four hours pretending to clean the store, and now I got to do it for real?
Rad's hero facts display on the screen briefly.
K.O. Oh, hi, there, [Squinting while reading] Rad. What a rad name!
Rad [Scoffs] Yeah, it's short for Radicles. Back on my home planet, it's a really cool and rare name, too.
K.O. Whoa! You're an alien?
Rad Yeah.
K.O. [Shakes hands with Rad after standing] I'm K.O. Say, um, can you show me where the lightning nachos are?
[Scene cuts to K.O. looking excitedly at the nachos while Rad pours an electrified light-blue sauce over it]
Rad So, you're choosing the path of the hero, huh? I'm pretty heroic myself. Level 2, if you must know. [Eats a chip; gets shocked by electricity]
K.O. Well, anyway, thanks for your help, Rad. I better check out—
Rad [Stepping in front of K.O.] Oh, so you need photographic evidence of my righteous feats?
K.O. Not now. I believe y—
Rad If you insist... [Pulls out cellphone and shows photos to K.O.] Here's one of me doing my famous power belly flop on a bad guy. And here's me getting the drop on the Chip Damage. Don't worry, we're cool now. [Accidentally shows a photo of a kitten] And here's me—
K.O. Aww, who's the kitty?
Rad [Pulls the phone away in shock] Aah! Uh, uh, she's nobody! It's nothing! [Rad exits, racing away.]
K.O. What a cool guy.
[K.O. walks towards Enid, who is scanning items for Mega Football Baby. Once the last one is scanned, her hero facts display briefly.]
Enid [Unenthusiastically] That'll be twenty technos. Have a... day. [MFB walk away] Welcome to Gar's, how may I—
Pird Do you have any gum?!
[Frame pans out to reveal gum displays on both sides of the counter]]
Enid [Sighs] Yes.
Pird Oh... Okay!
[Pird turns and walks past the gum as he exits; Enid groans in irritation.]
K.O. Hi, there. My name's K.O. How are you?
Enid Uh, Enid. And, uh, well, I'm here.
K.O. Yeah, here! It's gotta be so much fun coming here every day.
Enid I take it you've never worked in customer service.
K.O. Nope. I'm a little kid. But I can imagine it— rubbing elbows with the bravest and toughest heroes. [Sighs] You must be exhausted from all that making a difference.
Enid Yeah, that's it.
K.O. You know, once I buy this stuff, [Places products on counter] I'll be a hero myself! My mom's gonna be so proud of me.
Enid Hopefully proud enough to foot the huge bill you just racked up.
K.O. Oh, right. [Pulls out credit card] The pin is my birthday! [Slides card] Ch-ch-ch-ch-cha! [Enters PIN in number pad, which flashes 'OK'. Frame pans to K.O. dancing in place] Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!
Enid [While K.O. is dancing, she chuckles] Congrats, kid.
K.O. Thanks, Enid! I'll see you around!
Enid Bye. Have a... nice day. [Chuckles while leaning back] Nice.
[Scene cuts to K.O. putting on the items he just bought]
K.O. After minutes of hard work and dedication, I achieved my dream. I am a hero!
[After the frame unfreezes, K.O. tries to exit the bodega; the doors shut. He waves his arms to reactivate the sensor, and continues to walk out.]
K.O. Everything's coming up K.O.!
[Frame pans out to people screaming in terror.]
Mega Football Baby It's the Boxman!
[An alarm starts sounding as the bodega and plaza locks down. Cut to IFrame Outlet, where a door coming down rips a poster off the wall Brandon was hanging up.]
Brandon Hey! Aw, man. It took me like an hour to paint that. This better not be another one of Gar's drills.
A Real Magic Skeleton [Leaning into frame] Nah, those are Tuesdays. It's got to be a Boxman bot. [Holds up cellphone] Want to help me shoot the chaos?
[A purple portal opens in the sky as a Boxman Box falls from it. The box hits the pavement, and the walls collapse to reveal a robot.]
Darrell I am Darrell, and I've come to destroy! [Starts shooting lasers, laughs maniacally.]
K.O. [Waving] Hi Darrell, I'm K.O.! Nice to— [Ducks, dodging one of Darrell's lasers.]
[Several people run away from Darrell's lasers.]
Darrell That's right! Run away, Lakewood Losers!
[Bodega door chimes; Enid and Rad are standing there and K.O. is still waving but visibly more concerned]
Rad Ugh, another Boxman robot.
Enid K.O. don't wave at him, he's evil... and a total nerd.
K.O. [Dramatically] *Evil*? I have to do something!
Enid Whoa, hold up, you don't stand a *chance* against that thing.
Rad I think he's got it.
Enid What, you think K.O. can beat him?
Rad Oh. Oh, no, no, no. I meant Darrell's got it. [Chuckles] That kid's gonna get wrecked.
K.O. Ha! Don't let appearances fool you. Witness the power of a true hero!
[K.O. pounds his gauntlets together and jumps upward. He aims a punch towards Darrell, who turns to notice him.]
Darrell What the? [Spikes appear on his knuckles as he goes for a punch.]
K.O. Aah!
[K.O. and Darrell's fists collide.]
Darrell [Chuckles] Not bad! [They separate; Darrell charges his arm cannon] Where'd you get those sweet threads? The convenience store?
K.O. Yes! In fact, I did. And I got this, too! [Pulls out the laser sword.]
[K.O. runs towards Darrell, dodging his laser beams. K.O. jumps up and cuts Darrell's arm cannon off with a laser from the sword.]
Darrell Aah! No way!
K.O. You were wrong to underestimate the power of a hero, Darrell!
[K.O. runs up and high-kicks Darrell, who skids across the pavement.]
K.O. And now you're really going to get it! [Throws off his cape.]
Darrell [Groans, then grunts as K.O.'s cape land on him. He pulls the cape off.] Give it up already!
K.O. I'll never give up, I can feel the willpower of everyone in the plaza coursing through me! [K.O.'s flame gauntlets activate] Enough power for one final move! Get ready to feel 10,000 strikes of sweet justice, Darrell!
[Darrell begins to tremble in fear.]
K.O. Ultra-flaming-evil-pulverizing-punch! Ha!
[As the punches fly and Darrell is being hit, the frame starts cutting back and forth between the fight scene and a beat-up K.O.. The fight scene vanishes, and a Real Magic Skeleton is trying to wake him up.]
A Real Magic Skeleton Kid. Hey, kid! Snap out of it! [Begins smacking K.O. across the face.] Come on, kid! Kid, come on. Kid?
K.O. [Shakes his head, mumbling as he wakes up.] Wha-- What happened?
A Real Magic Skeleton [Slightly sheepish] Geez, where do I start with this? Well, okay.
[Cut to behind ARMS and K.O., showing Enid and Rad battling Darrell]
A Real Magic Skeleton [Pointing at the battle] See that robot over there with the cannon and the big fist? Well, first, you tried to block his punch. But, he just knocked your flame gauntlets in your face, which knocked you out. As you fell back, you tripped over your beach towel, and fell butt-first into your lightning nachos which shocked you backwards into this here wall. Actually pretty funny.
K.O. [Blushing] Th- That's what really happened?
A Real Magic Skeleton [Holding cellphone up to K.O.] I recorded the whole thing if you want to check it out.
[The phone begins to play sounds of K.O. screaming and grunting, followed by splattering sounds. K.O. screams some more, and a whirling sound plays before a thud.]
K.O. [Dejectedly] I can't believe it... [He sinks to the ground.] That fight felt so intense, but it wasn't real, just like my big dream. [As he continues, the frame cuts back to Enid and Rad, the latter who is shot by Darrell and knocked out] I thought I'd already become a hero, but all I did was wear stuff and get my butt kicked. Who am I kidding? I'm not even close to being there yet...
Enid [Shaking Radicles, trying to wake him up] Ugh. Get off the ground, you stupid meatloaf!
[A whistle is heard in the distance. The frame pans up to the sky to reveal Mr. Gar in the clouds as the source.]
Enid Ha!
Darrell What the...?
A jet engine sounds as Mr. Gar prepares to attack. He shoots down from the sky, elbow pointed outward and flaming, causing an explosion and decapitating Darrell on impact. While he looks down at Darrell's head.
Mr. Gar Hmm...
Mr. Gar kicks the head, sending it flying towards Boxmore Industries while Darrell screams. The crosswalk sign turns green, and gives off a ding.
Mr. Gar You two, get this mess cleaned up.
Enid and Rad [In unison, while bowing] Yes, sir!
Mr. Gar [Turns and walks away, muttering] Mondays, am I right?
Rad Man, Mr. Gar is pretty cool, but, like, how'd he even get up there?
Enid [Holding broom] He's level eleven, dude. C'mon.
As K.O. is taking off his boots, he sees Mr. Gar and starts watching him wistfully, holding up the latter's Pow card.
K.O. [Thinking] I want to be a great hero. How do I become one? Will I wake up as a hero one day? Will I transform into one? No, that's not right. I can't become a hero right away, so I'm gonna learn how by working here at Lakewood Plaza Turbo one step at a time.
Rad [Chuckles] Yo, Enid, check out the squirt. Nice face, right?
[K.O. has tears in his eyes. He whimpers, then sniffs. Rad scoffs and laughs at this.]
Enid {With a slight smile] Ah... I dunno. I could get used to it.
Enid continues sweeping, and Rad smiles. The episode ends.
