Fugi-Dove: Jay! Jay! Jay. Jay. Jay! Jay!
Fugi-Dove: If you're serious about being a criminal, you'll want a catchphrase!
Jay: Ugh. I'm not becoming a criminal!
Fugi-Dove: Like -- (He coos.) Because loud noises are distracting! Except not that, because that's mine.
Jay: How about this for a catchphrase? Leave me alone! (He catches up with Cole and Lloyd.) Are we almost at Twitchy's? I can't take this for much longer! He's driving me --
Fugi-Dove: We're a lot alike. Which is why I've decided to make you, Jay, ninja of lightning, my criminal sidekick! I even thought of a name for you.
Jay: No thanks.
Fugi-Dove: Blue Jay! Get it? Because it's a bird, like me, plus that Jay part! Blue, Jay!
Cole: That's catchy.
Jay: Ugh, don't encourage him!
Lloyd: We'll leave you guys to discuss the details. (They run off.)
Jay: Uh, no. No you won't!
Fugi-Dove: You are now under the protective wing of Fugi-Dove, young Blue Jay! Feel the warmth of my wing. Feel it.
Jay: Ugh. Ugh.
(On police cars, Hounddog McBrag and some police officers pursue the ninja.)
Hounddog McBrag: Tell 'im there ain't a critter alive who can outrun old Hounddog once I got 'em set.
Butchie: So we got a lead?
Hounddog McBrag: Maybe. Only thing on the map this far is some old gas station. My bet is they're gonna head there.
Butchie: Very clever, sir. (on the phone) We're closing in on them, sir. Yes, sir. I'll keep you informed. Uh, no, sir. We won't be losing any more vehicles. You have my word on that.
(In the desert, Lloyd sees a road.)
Lloyd: A road. We're getting close to Twitchy's!
Fugi-Dove: Ah, civilization! This is the perfect time to give you your first lesson in crime. Petty vandalism! (He whips out a water bottle.)
Cole: You have water?
Fugi-Dove: Not anymore. (He pours the water on the sand.)
Cole: What are you doing?!
Fugi-Dove: What does it look like? (He throws the empty bottle on the ground.) Littering! (He coos.)
(Cole leaps after the bottle to find it empty.)
Fugi-Dove: Remember, Blue Jay! A criminal is only as good as the last crime he committed! And I have to keep my reputation up if I'm gonna join the Crystal Council.
Lloyd: What did you say?
Fugi-Dove: I said, I have to keep my reputation up. A criminal is only as good as --
Lloyd: No, about the Crystal Council!
Fugi-Dove: Oh! Word on the street is some new criminal calling himself the Crystal King is assembling super villains for his Crystal Council. I'm just waiting for my invitation.
Lloyd: If we could figure out who this Crystal King will invite next, we might be able to disguise ourselves, intercept the invitation, and infiltrate this Council.
Fugi-Dove: Don't even think of taking my invitation.
Jay: You're not getting an invitation, okay? Nobody's gonna invite you to join their super villain team.
Fugi-Dove: Oh, really? Even after I do this? (He whips out another bottle and pours the water on the sand.)
Cole: Aah! (He leaps after the bottle, but it has been emptied.) No!
Kai: Ah, that hits the spot. I feel great!
Zane: Ah, look! They made it!
Kai: Well. Isn't that a sight for sore eyes. (He sees Cole run to him with arms outstretched.) Heh hey, buddy. Glad to see you too! (Cole leaps at a bottle behind him.) Okay?
Cole: Water. Water! Water!
Twitchy Tim: Well, I'll be tickled pink! If it ain't my friends, the ninja! How you doing, Lloyd? Jay?
Lloyd: Twitchy! I wasn't sure you'd remember us!
Twitchy Tim: Oh, I've been practicing ways to remember! Like when someone tells me something, I repeat it back three times, real slow. And - and - what was I saying?
Jay: Nothing. Good to see you, Twitchy.
Twitchy Tim: Come on in and get something cold to drink.
(Inside the shop, the ninja have a discussion.)
Lloyd: So that's the plan. Figure out which villain the Crystal King will approach next, replace him or her, and infiltrate the Council in disguise.
Kai: But which villain will be next?
Fugi-Dove: So has Aspheera.
(The others gasp.)
Fugi-Dove: When you're a criminal of my stature, you hear things.
Lloyd: Small timers. We need to think bigger.
Lloyd: Nobody knows where my father is. Or Krux and Acronix, for that matter.
Jay: What about the Mechanic?
Cole: Hmm, maybe. He was small time, but he leveled up in my books since the whole Prime Empire thing.
Lloyd: We know where his lair is.
Jay: If he hasn't moved.
Kai: It's worth a shot.
(Just then, police cars arrive outside.)
Kai: Whoa. We got company.
Lloyd: Twitchy! Is there anywhere we can hide?
Twitchy Tim: Eh, hide? Sure! Get behind the counter.
(They all crowd behind the counter.)
Jay: Move over!
Kai: I can't. There's no room!
Fugi-Dove: Over there. Quick! (He grabs Jay and pulls him behind the shelves, just as the police enter.)
Twitchy Tim: Well, howdy, sir? What'll it be, leaded or unleaded?
(Hounddog McBrag ignores him and searches the shop.)
Twitchy Tim: Can I help, sir?
Butchie: We're on the lookout for some escaped prisoners. The ninja?
Twitchy Tim: The ninja?
Butchie: You probably saw on the news. They broke out of Kryptarium. We thought they might be headed this way.
Twitchy Tim: Well, boy, are you a good guesser! They're right here.
Cole: You were supposed to hide us!
Twitchy Tim: I was? - Well I'll be tickled pink, if it ain't my friends the ninja! Leaded or unleaded?
Butchie: Holy cow!
Hounddog McBrag: Nobody move! Y'all are under arrest!
(Twitchy Tim flees out the side door.)
Fugi-Dove: Go, be free! Remember me.
(Fugi-Dove hurls him out the side door before leaping onto the shelves and knocking them over.)
Fugi-Dove: (He coos.) My cry fills the night! (He tackles the police officers.) Fly, you fools!
Police: I got him!
Fugi-Dove: Go, save yourselves! Take care of my Blue Jay!
(The ninja flee out the front door and meet up with Jay.)
Jay: What just happened?
Cole: I think Fugi-Dove saved our butts!
Jay: I'm so confused right now. I don't know what to feel! Why did he do that?
Kai: Who cares? Let's get out of here! (He blasts one police car with fire, before boarding the other. The ninja speed away.)
Butchie: Oh, boy. Mayor's not gonna like that.
(At the Mechanic's lair, Cole breaks open the door.)
Lloyd: Looks like we're in luck.
Kai: Room full of creepy arms. I'd say the Mechanic's still here.
Cole: Maybe I was wrong about him levelling up. Not very bright of him to keep the same lair.
(Behind them, the Mechanic suddenly attacks them. A fight breaks out.)
Mechanic: Well, if it ain't the ninja, dropping by unannounced. You should've called ahead. I'd have made appetizers!
Lloyd: Don't let him get away!
Mechanic: I'm not runnin'! This is my home! Well, more of an evil lair, really.
Kai and Cole: Ninja, go!
Jay: We just - wanna - talk!
Cole: And tie you up for a bit!
Mechanic: I don't think so! I think this is a good opportunity for some payback!
(Zane charges and kicks him away.)
Zane: Remember me?
Mechanic: Zane the Pain!
(He shoots his mechanical arm at Zane and misses. Lloyd pushes the Prime Empire arcade machine onto him.)
Kai: That ought to hold him for a while.
Jay: Oh, hey look! He's trapped. By Prime Empire! Get it? Trapped by the game? (He snickers.)
Kai: Ha! Good one, Jay!
Jay: Haha! Yeah! (They high five.)
Zane: What now, Lloyd?
(Later, all the ninja, except Lloyd, and the Mechanic, who's tied up and gagged, are in the Mechanic's truck. Zane projects a map.)
Jay: Is that Lloyd?
Zane: Affirmative. I was able to fashion a GPS device for Lloyd, using some of the Mechanic's crude electronics.
Mechanic: (muffled) Crude?! I'll show you crude!
Zane: I can track him wherever he goes now.
Kai: Wonder how long we'll have to wait.
Cole: Something tells me not long.
(In the lair, Lloyd disguises himself as the Mechanic. A Crystal Spider appears, and he blocks half his face to trick its scanner.)
Kabuki Mask (hologram): You are invited to join the Council of the Crystal King, and have your revenge upon those who wronged you. Do you accept?
Lloyd: What took you so long?
Kabuki Mask (hologram): Good. Follow the spider. It will bring you to me.
(Lloyd leaps into the hole the spider came through.)
