Lloyd: I wonder what happened to the others.
Nya: Yeah. I hope they're safe.
Lloyd: I guess for now, we'll have to follow these guys wherever they're going.
Jay: The others will be okay. Don't worry.
Lloyd: I hope so.
Murt: Um... hmm.
Lloyd: Everything okay? Why'd we stop?
Murt: Murt not remember the way.
Jay: What? I thought you knew these tunnels like the back of your hand!
Murt: (He looks at his hand, confused.) Uh...
Jay: (He sighs in exasperation.) Ugh.
Murt: It's one of these. Either this way, or this way, or this way.
Lloyd: Yeah, um, we figured it was one of them, Murt, but we kinda need to know which one.
Murt: How about this way? (He points behind the group.)
Lloyd: That's the way we just came.
Jay: Oh great. Now we're gonna get lost down here, we're never gonna see the sun again, we're all gonna -
Nya: It's this way, guys.
Jay: How do you know?
Nya: I can see footprints in the dirt.
Jay: Oh! Nice work, Nya. See, I told you it would be fine.
Nya and Jay: (They gasp as they arrive at the Munce Home-Cave.) Wow.
Munce Sentry: Halt! Who goes there?
Munce Sentry: There!
Lloyd: He means you, Murt!
Murt: Oh! Murt goes there.
Munce Sentry: Murt? Son of Murt?
Munce Sentry: You escape from the Skull Sorcerer? How?
Jay: Eh heh. (laughs nervously)
Munce Sentry: My queen! We have visitors.
Murtessa: (gasps) Murt!
Murt: (kneels) My queen. Murt escape, with help of these outsiders.
Murtessa: How? No one has ever returned from the caverns held by the Skull Sorcerer!
Murt: If you wish to hear story, Murt will tell.
Jay: (To Nya) This should be interesting.
Murt: (He gestures wildly throughout his narration.) We, were like, so many days. Always thunk-thunk-thunk. (pretends to mine) And then they came. And the Skull Sorcerer was like so (waves his arms), and the Ninja went like this (punches the air), and this (kicks). And then, caught like so, thunk-thunk-thunk (pretends to mine). But then, this, and then, they fought (punches and kicks). And like so, poof (punches his chest and pretends to fall). And like this, and the Skull Sorcerer was like this. (pretends to roar in agony) Arrrgh. (hits the ground and pretends to cry) Boo-hoo-hoo. (pretends to die)
Nya: Murt, you okay?
Murt: And so it was. We are free, thanks to them.
Murtessa: Hmm. (To the Ninja) This is true? You are Ninja from the surface, and you freed my subjects.
Jay: Yes it is, Your Majesty.
Murtessa: I am most grateful. How can I repay this?
Jay: Oh, no. It was nothing. Forget it.
Murtessa: You are also modest, I see.
Jay: Well, heh, modesty prevents me from agreeing, but yes.
Murtessa: And who is this? Your servant?
Jay: Oh, oh, no no no! This is Nya, my yang.
Nya: (She pulls Jay closer.) It means we belong together.
Murtessa: Hmm. Make our guests comfortable. Give them whatever they wish. Our best quarters, food, drink, even for the yang servant.
Jay: (Nya squeezes him.) Aah!
Nya: Yang servant? Can you believe that?
Lloyd: Actually, I think it went pretty well.
Nya: And YOU didn't say anything!
Jay: What? No! I totally did!
Lloyd: Will you guys relax? This is good. They might be willing to help us. And we can use all the help we can get right now. Finding the others, dealing with that Skull Sorcerer guy, and - hey. Look. (He points at a carving on the wall.) Huh, that must be this Milly guy.
Munce Sentry: Ahem. Queen Murtessa asks if you would dine with her.
Lloyd: Of course. We would be honored.
Munce Sentry: No. Not you. Just him. (He points to Jay.)
Nya: That's it. You tell the queen we're a team. Where he goes, we all go. Right, Jay? (grabs Jay) Right?!
Jay: Ow! Yes. Haha, right!
Murtessa: (To a Munce) Bring another two bowls.
Jay: What is this?
Nya: (She sniffs the food.) Ugh. I have no idea.
Jay: Ugh! Think it's trying to eat me.
Murtessa: Is it true you know Spinjitzu?
Jay: Uh, yes.
Murtessa: And you have elemental powers?
Jay: I-I do.
Nya: We all do, actually.
Murtessa: I hope you will show me, Ninja Jay. I would love to see a demonstration.
Jay: Oh, uh, okay. Um, how about this? (He uses Lightning on the rocks above them. They start glowing.) Oh, gee, um. Hehe, that doesn't usually happen, heh.
Murtessa: It is beautiful. I have never seen such beauty. Truly, you are gifted, bright, modest, and powerful. Tell me, are you ... betrothed?
Nya: Yes! He is! To me! (She and Murtessa scowl at each other.)
Lloyd: So, um, what is this wonderful food? Heh. (Murtessa knocks his plate off the table.) Oh, thank goodness.
Murtessa: I demand the Munce rite of ritual combat to fight for the honor of Ninja Jay. For you are unworthy!
Nya: Are you nuts? I'm not gonna fight for Jay!
Murtessa: Why not? You're afraid? You hide behind others, like a child?
Lloyd: Nya, come on, don't, it's - it's not worth it.
Murtessa: Like frightened child? Child!
Nya: That's it! Bring it! (She, Lloyd, and Jay enter a room with weapons.)
Lloyd: Nya! You can't do this.
Jay: Yeah, Nya, there's gotta be a better way.
Nya: Well if you figure it out, let me know. Jay, has it occurred to you what would happen if I didn't fight? You'd have to stay here. Forever! She wants you to be her king! Or whatever the Munce call it.
Jay: King? M-me? I would have to stay down here? Forever? Eating that disgusting Munce food?
Nya: Yes, Jay.
Jay: You have to win this, Nya! This is serious!
Nya: Oh, I intend to. (She heads to an arena in her Hero Suit.)
Murtessa: Ninja Jay, I challenge this outsider creature to combat, for you! I wish you to be my king. For even though you have tiny arms and ugly human face, you have a stout heart and are a mighty warrior. We should be together!
Nya: Not if I can help it!
Murtessa: Let the combat begin!
Nya: You asked for it, lady!
Murtessa: For what?
Nya: For this! Hiya! (She leaps at Murtessa, only to be knocked over. Murtessa drops her weapons and begins to act weirdly.) Huh? What the- (Murtessa curls into a ball and knocks Nya off her feet.) Hey! Aah!
Nya: What the - that's not how you - (She is repeatedly hit by Murtessa.)
Jay: Lloyd, I'm scared.
Lloyd: Relax. Nya's got this. I hope.
Nya: Okay, lady. Let's see how you like it when I spin. Ninja, go!
(Nya does Spinjitzu and kicks Murtessa into a wall. Murtessa collapses.)
Munce: The queen. She-she-
Munce: She has lost.
(Other Munce start to murmur among themselves.)
Munce: The queen has lost! Long live the queen!
Munce: Queen Nya.
Munce: Queen Nya!
Munce audience: Queen Nya! Queen Nya! Queen Nya! Queen Nya! Queen Nya! (They continue to chant in the background.)
Lloyd: Oh boy.
Jay: I did not see that coming.
