Ulysses: A little higher, just a tad more ... a tad, no. Make it two tads. Stop! Perfect. Now let's all be quiet and gaze upon it.
(Suddenly, the phone rings. Dwayne picks it up, but is attacked by Mr. Fuzly Fuzly. Ulysses takes the phone.)
Ulysses: This better be an emergency!
Ulysses: Aspheera? Wait a second. Which ninja, the old ninja or the new ninja?
Noble: Neither. They're the new, new ninja.
Ulysses: What colors were they wearing?
Noble: None. Just, black. (He accidentally fires the laser.) Whoa!
Ulysses: Dull, and unimaginative. Well, whoever they are, I want them found and arrested! Now!
P.I.X.A.L.: Nya's temperature is rising. If it passes zero, she will destabilize.
Skylor: Zane's powers are wearing off!
Computer: Danger. Temperature approaching critical.
Skylor: I'm - ugh - doing everything I can.
(Just then, Zane arrives and blasts Nya with his powers, freezing her properly.)
Skylor: Zane! Thank goodness.
P.I.X.A.L.: Where are the others?
Zane: I never thought I would say this, but they are showing Aspheera around the monastery.
(At the doors, Aspheera opens them to be greeted by Wu.)
Aspheera: I always knew our paths would cross again, Wu. Little did I dream our roles would be reversed, and you would need me.
Wu: If it were up to me, Aspheera, I would not have brought you here. I warned them you could not be trusted.
Aspheera: (laughs) That's priceless. You, the betrayer, warned them about me.
Wu: But our destinies are now linked. For better, or worse. If you can help Nya, I will not stand in the way of your freedom.
Aspheera: Show her to me.
(Wu sighs, and they take her to the Hangar Bay.)
Aspheera: Hmm. Fasssscinating. What magic is this? Who did this?
Lloyd: She did it herself. She became one with the sea to save us. And we're gonna do whatever it takes to bring her back.
Aspheera: How noble. One for all and all for one. Unfortunately, I cannot help.
Wu: You can save her by removing her powers, as you once did with Kai.
(Kai looks away unhappily in the background.)
Aspheera: I had my staff then. Without that, I can do nothing.
Zane: The staff will be here shortly.
Cole: Uh, not exactly.
Lloyd: What happened?
Jay: It wasn't there. The place was empty.
Col: Everything's gone.
Kai: What are we gonna do now? We can't exactly pick up a phone and call Cyrus Borg and say "Oh hi, Cyrus, can you please tell us where you moved Aspheera's staff so we can steal it?"
P.I.X.A.L.: (She calls Cyrus.) Oh hi, Cyrus, can you please tell us where you moved Aspheera's staff so we can steal it? And use it to save Nya's life?
Kai: Or, maybe we can.
(Later, Zane blasts Nya again while Skylor replicates his powers again.)
P.I.X.A.L.: Cyrus Borg has informed me that Aspheera's staff is on board a guarded convoy, that is moving dangerous artifacts to a more secure location. He was kind enough to give us the convoy's schedule and route through the city. It departs downtown Ninjago in approximately 8 hours.
Zane: My analysis indicates our best chance is to ambush the convoy at this location, where it will be most vulnerable.
Lloyd: Four armored trucks travelling under police protection? I don't see how we'd pull that off.
Zane: With our current vehicles, you are correct. We cannot. It will necessitate a bevy of modifications that will require 600 hours to complete.
P.I.X.A.L.: 653 hours of work, to be precise. I'll have the vehicles ready shortly. If you will excuse me.
(Zane stares after her confusedly.)
Cole: I'm not much of a math guy, but that seems like more hours than we have.
Kai: When things don't make sense, I just ignore them.
(Later, the ninja speed through the city on new vehicles.)
Jay: These ... are awesome! Why are they transporting the artifacts anyway?
Kai: Probably because we asked the Mayor about Aspheera's staff.
Jay: Oh! Oh. Right.
Kai: Wow. I love this thing!
Cole: That's what I'm talking about!
Lloyd: How did you build these so fast, P.I.X.A.L.?
P.I.X.A.L.: A Nindroid needs her secrets.
Zane: I find this very illogical. We will need a thorough download at a suitable time.
P.I.X.A.L.: So as to avoid identification, each vehicle is coated in an advanced chroma-correcting paint, that can --
Cole: I like black! (He hits a button and his vehicle turns black. The others follow suit.)
Jay: Woo hoo! Yeah! Woo hoo!
P.I.X.A.L.: Operation manuals are inside --
Lloyd: No time for manuals, P.I.X.A.L.. We'll figure it out as we go. C'mon, guys. Okay, this is it. Let's get in and out, quick. And remember, no using real names. And no powers. Nothing to identify us.
Kai: We got it, okay? We got it.
(They speed past the police guarding the area.)
Jay: Wow, they're not taking any chances, are they?
Zane: I am detecting an object matching my visual record of Aspheera's staff inside the lead truck at your ten o'clock.
Lloyd: Okay, let's do it. Just like we planned. On my mark, one, two, three!
Kai: Here goes!
(The ninja surround the trucks. Kai deliberately blocks the target truck.)
Swat Driver #1: Whoa! Pick a lane, buddy!
Lloyd: Set your vehicles on auto! (He leaps onto the truck.) I made it! Everyone, come on!
Swat Driver #1: Holy cow. Call for backup!
Zane: Magnetized attachment secure. (He lifts the truck with his jet.)
Swat Driver #2: Stop the truck!
(Swat Driver #1 slams the brakes, but it doesn't work.)
Swat Driver #3: Whoa. Now I've seen it all, Joe.
Zane: Good job. We'll retrieve our vehicles when we have the staff.
(The ninja minus Zane burst into the truck.)
Teal Ninja: Wherever there are criminals!
Kai: Oh, not these guys!
Teal Ninja: Wherever there are --
Cole: Save it. (He rushes forward to attack. A fight breaks out.)
Zane: What is going on in there? The estimated weight distribution isn't balanced.
(The Teal Ninja throws a shuriken and damages the jet's engines.)
Jay: That was not smart!
Zane: Hold on!
(The Swat Drivers scream as the truck crashes into a billboard.)
Zane: This is less than optimal. We are losing altitude.
(They speed by a noodle stand. Okino's noodles are nearly swept away, but he catches them smoothly. The truck swings around the streets, knocking multiple vehicles aside. Jay is nearly knocked off, and has to step on a citizen's car.)
(Zane spots a tour bus on a bridge in the way.)
Zane: That is inconvenient.
(The truck barely misses the bus.)
(Dwayne bursts into the mayor's office.)
Dwayne: Sir! One of the armored trucks from Borg Tower is airborne!
Ulysses: That's impossible. Trucks can't fly!
(The truck rams into the mayor's building and knocks a statue off.)
Kai: Can't you try not to hit every single building, Zane?
Lloyd: No names!
Teal Ninja: Zane? (He immediately takes Lloyd hostage.)
Kai: Uh, no? I said Jane!
Teal Ninja: No, you said Zane. (He unmasks Lloyd.) Old green ninja Lloyd?
Lloyd: I don't have time to explain. But I need that staff. Right. Now.
(The Orange Ninja studies the staff. Kai leaps forward and kicks it out of her hands.)
Jay: Got it!
Lloyd: Oh, nice one!
Kai: Let's get out of here!
(They grab onto the cable.)
Zane: Safe landing zone detected. Deploying now. Stay clear. (He lands the truck on the top of a building.)
Lloyd: Well, looks like we're the bad guys now.
Teal Ninja: It was the ninja, sir. No, sir. The old ninja. You know, green, red, blue, the other ones.
Ulysses: I thought they were wearing black.
Teal Ninja: It was a trick, sir. The new new ninja were actually the old ninja.
Ulysses: Have they no sense of decency? I want them found. I want them cooked. From this moment on, the ninja are public enemies number one, two, three, four, and five!
