Finding Nemo: The Musical (Disney’s Animal Kingdom) – Part 2

*Sung lyrics in bold.

(Continued from Part 1.)

MARLIN
He’s gone. He can’t be gone! Has anybody seen a boat? Please, they took my son! I’m coming, Nemo!

(DORY enters, singing.)

DORY
La la la la la la la la,
La la la la la la la la,
La la la la la—
Lookout! (She crashes into MARLIN.) Ooh, sorry, sir.

MARLIN
He’s got my son. He’s got Nemo. Have you seen a boat?

DORY
A boat? I’ve seen a boat! Follow me!
La la la la la la la la,
La la la la la la la la,
La la la la la.
(Looking at MARLIN suspiciously.) Do you mind?

MARLIN
What?

DORY
I’m tryin’ to swim here.

MARLIN
But we’re trying to find Nemo. You were showing me which way the boat went.

DORY
A boat? I’ve seen a boat! Follow me!
La la la la la la la la,
La la la la la la la la,
La la la la la.
(Eyeing MARLIN again.) Do I know you?

MARLIN
Yes, you were showing me which way the boat went.

DORY
A boat? I saw a boat—

MARLIN
Wait! We already did this.

DORY
We did? Oh dear
I guess I should explain—
I got this problem with my brain.
Things get really scrambled in my head!
I have no short term memory,
Forget things almost instantly.
I’m not even sure what I just said.
May I help you?

MARLIN
There’s something wrong with you, really. You’re wasting my time. I have to find my son.

DORY
Chico?

MARLIN
Nemo!

BRUCE (Appearing behind them)
Hello, love.

DORY
Well, hi!

BRUCE
Name’s Bruce.

DORY
I’m Dory, and this is…

MARLIN
You don’t need to know. I’m nobody, really. I was just leaving—

BRUCE
I’d like to invite you morsels to a little party I’m having.

DORY
Hey look—balloons! It is a party!

BRUCE
(Laughs.) Mind your distance, though. You wouldn’t want one o’ them to pop! Anchor! Chum!

ANCHOR
It’s about time, mate. I’m starvin’.

CHUM
What’cha bring for us, mate?

BRUCE
Couple o’ tasty bites.

(The SHARKS laugh and make sounds of hunger.)

BRUCE
Alright then! Our meeting has officially come to order. Let us all say the pledge!
Fish are friends.

ANCHOR
Fish are friends.

CHUM
Fish are friends.

SHARKS
Not food!

Though we have long sharp teeth,
We’re nice sharks underneath.
We know that fish are friends, not food.

CHUM
Well, sometimes we know.

SHARKS
Sure we could eat you whole,
But we have self-control!
We know that fish are friends, not food.

MARLIN
I’d like to be your friend!

BRUCE
The stress of life in the ocean
Will lead to emotional eating.

ANCHOR AND CHUM
Yes it will!

BRUCE
When you need help gettin’ through it,
And kelp just won’t do it,
Don’t start feeding—

SHARKS
Swim to our meeting!

Oh yes, we’ve seen the light.
Each day we fight the fight.
To curb our appetite,
And change our attitude.

BRUCE
Fish are friends…

ANCHOR
Fish are friends…

BRUCE
Fish are friends…

CHUM
Fish are food!

BRUCE AND ANCHOR
No!

SHARKS
Fish are friends, not food!

BRUCE
Like we rehearsed, gentlemen.

SHARKS
Doo, doo, doo, doo, etc.

MARLIN
Look! That mask belonged to the diver that took my son!

DORY
Harpo?

MARLIN:
Nemo! What do these markings mean? I can’t read human.

DORY
Hey look—sharks! I bet they can help!

MARLIN
No, no, no! Dory!

DORY
Hey fellas? Guys? Hey?

MARLIN
No Dory!

DORY
If you could just—

MARLIN
Gimme it!

DORY
I know what to— (The mask snaps and gives her a bloody nose.) Ow!

MARLIN
Oh, I’m sorry! Is you’re nose bleeding?

DORY
You really clocked me there!

BRUCE
(Smells the blood.) Ooh that’s good!

ANCHOR AND CHUM
Intervention!

BRUCE
I need a little taste!

ANCHOR AND CHUM
No!

BRUCE
Why let ’em go to waste?

ANCHOR AND CHUM
Bruce!
Remember fish are friends, not food!

ANCHOR
Remember the steps!

ANCHOR AND CHUM
He’s really not so bad.
He never knew his dad.

BRUCE
I need some food!
I need some food!
I need some food!!

(SHARKS start to chase MARLIN and DORY.)

MARLIN
There’s no way out!

DORY
Es-ca-pay! That’s funny, it’s spelt the same as “escape.”

MARLIN
Dory… You can read?

DORY
I can read? Hey, I can read!

MARLIN
Well, read the mask!

BRUCE
I’ve got you in my sight,
I’m having fish tonight!!

DORY
This way!

ANCHOR AND CHUM
Remember fish are friends.
Remember fish are friends.
Remember fish are friends…

(Sound of bombs about to explode.)

BRUCE
Swim away! Swim away!

ANCHOR AND CHUM
Not food.

(Big explosions. Applause. Change of scene to dental office.)

P. SHERMAN
You haven’t been flossing, mate. This won’t hurt a bit. (Sound of dental drill and patient screaming.) Well, maybe a little bit… How’s the missus?

(Patient tries to talk through dental gauze.)

See this little fish? Found him on the reef. Thought he’d make a good present for my niece’s birthday on Friday.

NEMO
Dad? (Bumps into glass side of tank.) Daddy?!

Where’s my dad? I’m all alone.
I’m too small to be here on my own.
I swam away, ’cause I got mad.
But now I really need him.
Where’s my dad?

(Fish tank comes to life with chanting and dancing.)

TANK GANG
Wannahockaloogie! Wannahockaloogie! Wannahockaloogie! Wannahockaloogie! Wannahockaloogie! Wannahockaloogie! Wannahockaloogie! 
Welcome!!

NEMO
Daddy!

DEB
Oh no. We scared him!

PEACH
I don’t know why we just can’t say “hello”?

NEMO
I wanna go home! Daddy!

PEACH
Honey, your dad’s probably back at the pet store.

NEMO
Pet store?

BLOAT
Yeah, ya know. Like I’m from Bob’s Fish-Farm.

DEB
Fish-O-Rama!

BUBBLES
Mail-order…

PEACH
eBay.

NEMO
I—I’m from the ocean!

NIGEL
The ocean, eh?

NEMO
Ahh!

TANK GANG
Hi, Nigel.

NIGEL
I’m from the ocean too! Sorry If I ever took a snap at ya, lad. So what have we got today, mates?

PEACH
Root canal!

NIGEL
Ooh! Has he loosened the periodontal ligiment?

P. SHERMAN
Shoo! Shoo! He’s not your fish! He’s going to my Darla!

(Theme from Psycho plays ominously.)

BLOAT
Darla?! (Puffs.) Oh no!

NEMO
What? What’s wrong with her?

PEACH
Every year, she gets a fish.

DEB
Every year, she shakes the bag!

BLOAT
And every year, that fish goes belly-up!

TANK GANG
She’s a fish killer!

NEMO
I can’t go with that girl—I need my dad! I gotta get back to my dad. Daddy!!

GILL
Hey, kid! You’ll get back to your dad. I’ve been watching you, and you’re small enough to break us free.

NEMO
I don’t swim well. I’ve got a bad fin…

GILL
One bad fin has never stopped me.

PEACH
Your escape plans never work, Gill.

GILL
But this time we’ve got him. I promise, we will all get out, as long as we can swim…
Together!
We swim together!
Cooperation is the secret to our success.

BUBBLES
Bubbles?

GILL
We swim in harmony…

BLOAT
And we start at dentistry.

GILL:
We’re the fish of Pablo Sherman, D.D.S.

This little guy is one of us now. And we can’t send him off to his death. Darla’s coming in five days, but he’ll be long gone by then. We all will—if we do this the way we do everything else!

GILL
Together…

TANK GANG
We swim together!
And together we’ll get out of here as a group.

BLOAT
Oh, I believe we can!

NEMO
Yeah, but what’s the plan?

GILL
We’re gonna jam the filter and fill this tank with poop!

TANK GANG
Huh?

GILL
When this kid jams the filter, the tank will get filthy, and the dentist will have to clean it. He’ll put us into individual bags and we’ll roll out the window into the ocean!

TANK GANG
Ohhh!

BLOAT
The whole “poop” thing threw me.

ALL
Together!
We swim together!

GILL
Little clownfish you’re our ticket to breaking free.

ALL
And if we all join fins,
Everybody wins!
And we’ll swim together
In the open sea!

GILL
So what’s your name, kid?

NEMO
I’m Nemo!

(Applause. Continued in Part 3.)

Finding Nemo: The Musical (Disney’s Animal Kingdom) – Part 1

*Sung lyrics in bold.

(Preshow ends. Overture begins. Curtain rises to reveal MARLIN and CORAL in their nest filled with eggs, looking out over the ocean.)

MARLIN
Wow… Look at this spectacular view! Did your man deliver or did he deliver?

CORAL
(Laughing) Marlin, shh! You’re gonna wake the kids! We still have to name them. I like Nemo.

MARLIN
Nemo? Well, we can name one Nemo, but I’d like most of them to be Marlin Jr.

(Music turns ominous.)

What was that? Get inside Coral. No, Coral, don’t go out there. Leave it alone! Coral!

(Sound of zapping and CORAL disappears along with all the eggs except one.)

Coral?! (To the remaining egg.) Oh… There, there. Daddy’s got you. I promise, I will never let anything happen to you… Nemo.

(Change of scene as NEMO gets older.)

NEMO
First day of school! Time for school!

MARLIN
All right, we’re excited. It’s your first day of school, Nemo. We’re ready to learn—to get some knowledge.
Now what’s the one thing we remember before we head out from here?

NEMO
The ocean’s not safe,
So we have to check if the coast is clear.

MARLIN
Right.
We go out,
And then back in.
And then we go out,
And then back in.
And one more time, out,
And then back in.
And sometimes,
If you want to do it four times—

NEMO
Come on!

MARLIN
Okay…

NEMO
Hey Dad, hey Dad, wouldn’t it be cool
If I maybe met a shark while I’m at school?

MARLIN
No!

NEMO
Or an angel fish!
Is it true that they have wings?

MARLIN
I don’t think so.

NEMO
Can you believe there are so many things
In the big, blue world?
I’m gonna go explore!
In the big, blue world,
That I’ve never seen before.
So many creatures,
Swimming ’round the sea.
In the big, blue world,
And all of them are waiting for me!

MARLIN
That’s what I’m afraid of!

NEMO
Hey, Dad! Do you know how old sea turtles are?

MARLIN
Sea turtles? I don’t know…

NEMO
Sandy Plankton said that they could live to be a hundred!

MARLIN
Well, If I ever meet one, I’ll ask him.

NEMO
Me too! Maybe I’ll meet a sea turtle and a shark!

MARLIN
I know you’re excited,
But let’s take a little pause.
Sharks are not our friends, Nemo.
Haven’t you seen Jaws?

NEMO
What?

MARLIN
You don’t want to meet a swordfish;
You don’t want to meet a whale.

NEMO
I want to meet a whale!

MARLIN
You need me around to watch your tail!
In the big blue world,
You’re just a little fish.

NEMO
Aw, Dad…

MARLIN
In the big blue world
You’ll be seen as a tasty dish.

NEMO
No!

MARLIN
You mean so much to me.
I don’t know what I would do
In this big blue world,
If something should happen to you.

NEMO
No need to worry, Dad,
I’ll be okay!

MARLIN
I’m scared you’ll end up as a clownfish filet.
We can turn right around,
We could wait one more year.

NEMO
Don’t be so boring, Dad—
I belong here!

(Curtains open to reveal all kinds of SEA CREATURES on stage and in the aisles.)

Wow! Isn’t it beautiful?!

MARLIN
Nemo!

NEMO
Come on, dad!

MARLIN
Hold my fin! Hold my fin!

SEA CREATURES
Take a look around you.
The ocean’s alive!
In the big blue world,
It’s time for you to arrive.

MARLIN
Is this where we meet his teacher?

DADS
Yup. Sure is. Mhmm.

TAD
What’s wrong with his fin?

TAD’S DAD
Be nice! It’s his first day of school!

MARLIN
He was born with it, kids. We call it his lucky fin.

NEMO
Dad!

MR. RAY (Entering)
Let’s name the zones,
The zones, the zones!
Let’s name the zones of the open sea!

KIDS
Mr. Ray!

MR. RAY
Climb aboard explorers! Who’s this?

NEMO
I’m Nemo.

MARLIN
He’s got a little fin. I find if he gets tired, just give him a break. Ten, fifteen minutes—

NEMO
Dad!

MR. RAY
Don’t worry. We’re gonna travel as a group.

MARLIN
Nemo, you’re such a special kid.
Want me to come with you?
I’d feel better if I did.
Remember everything I’ve told you…

NEMO
Dad, I’ll be alright.

MR. RAY
Climb aboard explorers!
Hold on tight!
Are you ready?

NEMO
Yes, I’m ready!

MR. RAY
Really ready?

MARLIN
I don’t think I’m ready.

MR. RAY AND NEMO
We’re ready to go!

ENSEMBLE
In the big, blue world!
(We’re ready to go!)
In the big, blue world!
(We’re ready to go!)
In the big, blue world…

SHELDON’S DAD
You’re doing really well for a first timer.

PEARL’S DAD
I remember I was a mess when my kid first went to The Drop-Off.

MARLIN
Well, what are you gonna do? You gotta let ’em go sometime—The Drop-Off?!

(Applause. Change of scene to The Drop-Off. The KIDS look up at a boat.)

SHELDON
What’s that?

TAD
Sandy Plankton said it’s called a “butt”…

PEARL
Whoa, that’s a pretty big butt!

SHELDON
Look at us… We’re gonna touch the butt!

PEARL
Come on, Nemo!

TAD
How far can you go?

NEMO
Um, my dad says it’s not safe—

MARLIN (Appearing)
Nemo!! No, you can’t be anywhere near here!

NEMO
I wasn’t gonna—

MARLIN
You’re not ready! I was right. We’ll try school again next year.

NEMO
But dad!

MARLIN
You know you can’t swim well.

NEMO
I can!

MARLIN:
No you can’t! Now come along.
You think that you can do these things,
But you are wrong!

NEMO
I hate you.

(He starts to swim toward the boat.)

MARLIN:
Nemo! What are you doing? You get back here! You are in big trouble, young man. Do you hear me Big, big—

(NEMO is captured in a net.)

NEMO
Ahh!! Daddy, help me!!

MARLIN
Nemo!!! Oh, no, please, please! Wait. Please, slow down!

(Mask falls from the diver, but NEMO is gone. Continued in Part 2.)

Ellen’s Energy Adventure (Epcot)

(Guests proceed from Pre-Show into the loading area and board ride vehicles.)

MALE SAFETY ANNOUNCER
Ladies and gentlemen, please continue moving to the front of the theatre—filling the front rows first. Once you’ve selected a row, please move all the way to the end of the row. Thank you.

Ladies and gentlemen, please keep your party together and continue moving to the front of the theatre—filling the front rows first. Once you select a row, please move all the way to the end of the row. Thank you.

FEMALE SAFETY ANNOUNCER
Just a reminder, there may be no flash pictures or video lighting inside Ellen’s mind. Because we don’t want to wake her up and spoil the dream. Thank you.

Once again, please do not change rows, and stay clear of the doors. For your safety, remain seated with your hands, arms, feet, and legs inside the theatre car—uh, Ellen’s dream. And be sure to watch your children.

And now, let’s return to Ellen’s dream.

(Lights go out.)

DREAM ELLEN
Why is it so dark?

BILL NYE
Because there’s nothing to see.

DREAM ELLEN
Let me get this straight—you brought me back billions of years so you could show me… nothing?

BILL NYE
Sort of, uh, but out of this nothingness, many scientists believe the universe was born.

DREAM ELLEN
Must’ve been a big delivery room, huh?

BILL NYE
Uh, yeah. Ah, see that single point of very hot, very dense matter? It contains all the energy of the universe. And it’s about to expand at an astonishing rate! Oh, here, better put these on. Hearing protectors… ’cause, it’s the Big Bang!

DREAM ELLEN
The piggy bank?

BILL NYE
No, the Big Bang.

DREAM ELLEN
The ding dang?

BILL NYE
The Big Bang!

DREAM ELLEN
Oh…

BILL NYE
Now, what you’re about to witness took place over billions of years. Oh boy. Whew! Uh, better take cover.

DREAM ELLEN
(Doing semaphore.) All right, universe, you’re cleared for takeoff. Come on. Hahaha… Come on… Bill? Bill Nye? Bill Nye the Science Guy? Bill?!

(BILL NYE pushes DREAM ELLEN out a door just in time before the Big Bang. Screens show solar systems, stars, and planets, and finally zoom in to Earth, where mountains and oceans are forming. After blackness, BILL NYE and DREAM ELLEN appear on screen, wearing safari gear.)

BILL NYE
Here we are! Two hundred twenty million years in the earth’s past. Give or take, uh… a day.

DREAM ELLEN
Bill? Bill, I… I know I asked you to help me with this energy stuff and everything, but I was kind of hoping you’d show me a… slide show.

BILL NYE
A slide show? I guess that’d be easier, but… eh—this is way more fun!

DREAM ELLEN
Uh, yeah… this is fun. Where’s the energy?

BILL NYE
Oh, it’s all around you. See, these plants and animals are soaking up energy from the sun. When they die and get buried, time, pressure, and heat will cook them into the fossil fuels we rely on today—like, uh, coal, natural gas, and oil.

DREAM ELLEN
Wait a minute. You’re telling me that we’re filling our gas tanks with—well, with dinosaur soup?

BILL NYE
Well, not exactly. But dinosaurs did live when fossil fuels were developing in the earth. Dinosaurs are just cool! Let’s check ’em out!

DREAM ELLEN
Why don’t we just skip to the Air Conditioning and Jacuzzi Period, huh?

BILL NYE
Ellen, it’s the chance of a lifetime! It’s the chance of a hundred million lifetimes! Come on!

DREAM ELLEN
You go ahead and make sure it’s safe. I’ll wait here, okay? (To guests.) You might as well go, too. This is my nightmare. No need you stayin’ with me. (Dinosaur makes a loud noise.) Maybe I’ll go. What am I so scared of? It’s just a dinosaur. What’s the big deal about dinosaurs? They’re not so tough. Probably have a brain the size of a pea. (Another dinosaur growls.) Ah… I hope you’re not upset about that pea-brain crack—’cause, you know, now that I think of it, I’m sure peas are… much larger in this time period. I happen to love peas—don’t you? (Dinosaur growls again.) I’ll take that as a maybe. I should get going, ’cause I’m supposed to be dinner—I mean have dinner… with friends. So I should go… Hey, what’s over there?

(Another loud dinosaur noise. Ride vehicles move into dinosaur diorama.)

DREAM ELLEN (Voiceover)
Bill…? Oh, Bill? Where are you? Ow! Bill, is that you? (Dinosaur growls.) That’s your stomach growling, isn’t it? (Dinosaur growls again.) Okay, I told you we should’ve stopped for snacks. (Dinosaur growls louder.) You’re not Bill, are you? I mean, you could be—your name could be Bill, but you’re not the Bill that I—

BILL NYE (Voiceover)
Hey, Ellen!

DREAM ELLEN (Voiceover)
Excuse me, please.

BILL NYE (Voiceover)
Come on, I can see everything over here!

DREAM ELLEN (Voiceover)
No, you come over here. I’m not taking one more step until I can see where I’m going. (Loud dinosaur noise.) That’s good enough for me. Wait up, Bill! I’m coming!

(Ride vehicles move through dinosaur diorama and past ANIMATRONIC ELLEN warding off a large dinosaur.)

ANIMATRONIC ELLEN
Whew, somebody had garlic for lunch! Don’t make me use this thing! I’ll use it! I’ll use the thing! Don’t make me! Stop it! You don’t need to eat me! Trust me, I’ll just spoil your appetite! If you can’t say something nice… then, ya can’t. Hey! Listen mister, don’t give me that attitude! Bill! I could use a little help here! Down, boy. I said, down, boy! Bill? Could you find a park ranger? Park ranger! My, what big teeth you have! And so many! Take that, ya big bullysaurus!

BILL NYE (Voiceover)
Ellen! Hey, Ellen! This way! There’s still lots more to see! Ellen? Ellen? Where are you? Don’t lag behind, This way—let’s check it out! Ellen, let’s get a move on! There’s some way cool stuff just ahead! Something’s falling, Ellen. We don’t have all day. Come on!

RADIO ANNOUNCER (Voiceover)
KNRG news time: 55 million B.C. Now, for a look at our weather. Willard?

WILLARD SCOTT (Voiceover)
Okay! Our ultra-extended forecast calls for decreasing dinosaur population, followed by a sudden growth in those tiny little creatures the size of mice, that we call mammals. Hey, aren’t they cute? Birthday greetings go out to the cockroach! Two hundred million years old today. Boy howdy! And maybe that comet will help get rid of ’em. Now, here’s the traffic update…

TRAFFIC REPORTER (Voiceover)
We’ve got reports that a giant elephant—a Dinotherium to be exact—has popped his trunk and is jackknifed in traffic. Plus, we can expect lots of traffic at the local watering holes, as the mammal population continues to boom!

RADIO ANNOUNCER (Voiceover)
KNRG news time: 1 million B.C. And now to the sports report, live, from the Mastodome.

CHRIS BERMAN (Voiceover)
Mammals dominate the earth! Mammals dominate the earth! The big dinosaurs have been shut out. They’re back, back, back, back, back… gone! Extinct! The big dinosaurs have left the planet! The mammals have shut them out in a major planetary upset!

BILL NYE (Voiceover)
This is KNRG News Radio. Hey, let’s check out the weather report, and see if it’s gonna stay way cool outside. Willard?

WILLARD SCOTT (Voiceover)
Hey, we’re following a massive cold front extending from the Arctic region, all the way down to our planet’s mid-section. Now, we’re urging all mammals to evolve into their winter wardrobe because it’s gonna get chilly! Be sure to develop a thick, furry hide if you wanna make it. How cold it is!

BILL NYE (Voiceover)
Keep your dial tuned to KNRG for continuous news updates. KNRG news time: 900,000 B.C. Now, let’s check out what’s happening in the wild world of fashion.

FEMALE FASHION REPORTER (Voiceover)
Mammals are getting hairier. That’s right. Wooly is definitely in. Whether you’re a mammoth, or a rhino. And saber teeth seem to be a growing fad in the cat world. Also, look for antlers to be very big this year. As big as ten feet on creatures like the Megalosaurus. Wow! And that’s the latest in the fashion world.

BILL NYE (Voiceover)
Is it ever gonna warm up? Let’s find out with a look at the weather. Willard?

WILLARD SCOTT (Voiceover)
You know those giant glaciers we’ve all gotten so used to? Well, they’re gonna be receding to the North and South Poles. Conditions are looking very favorable for a whole new kind of mammal. KNRG news time: 750,000 B.C.

BILL NYE (Voiceover)
And that’s our KNRG up-to-the-minute news report. Now, back to our regularly scheduled program.

(BILL NYE appears on screen.)

BILL NYE
Now we’re exactly where we need to be. All we need now is… Ellen.

DREAM ELLEN
(Swinging in on a vine behind BILL NYE.) Bill? Bill, Bill, Bill? Oh, Bill, Bill!

BILL NYE
Ellen? (Looks behind him.) Oh, there you are!

DREAM ELLEN
Yeah, here I am. (Landing on the ground.) Hey, look—you know, it’s not that I don’t like getting attacked by a snakelike creature, it’s just—

BILL NYE
Shhh! See, we’re at the dawn of the human age. And one of our ancestors is about to make an important discovery—one that will spark the progress of civilization.

DREAM ELLEN
Let’s hope it’s deodorant…

(Cut to CAVE MAN, who yells and waves a stick atop a mountain. He gets struck by lightning and his stick catches on fire. He screams in pain and throws the fiery stick, which lights up a big fire for other CAVE PEOPLE.)

BILL NYE
See? We discovered fire! And we’re really on our way…

(Several CAVE PEOPLE gather around the fire, which leads to the development of ancient civilizations, boats, buildings, machinery, trains, farming, electricity, automobiles, and cities. Camera pans up over the clouds, where a helicopter enters carrying BILL NYE and DREAM ELLEN.)

BILL NYE
So, here we are today.

DREAM ELLEN
Thanks, Bill. You can just drop me back at Jeopardy. I think I’m ready to get back in the game and kick Judy’s big ole—

BILL NYE
But wait! To play the game, you have to know where energy comes from. You have to know where it’s gonna come from—and how to use it more wisely. You see, this is a really big story!

DREAM ELLEN
You heard the man—this is a big story! From now on, we’re dreaming in wide screen. (Screens expand.) Wider! Wider! I sound like a dentist, don’t I? Okay, everybody—rinse and spit! Just kidding—not you, sir. Thank you.

(Cut to the sun rising over a desert.)

BILL NYE
We’ll start with the sun. It’s where most of our energy comes from, and it’s at the heart of some bright ideas for tomorrow.

DREAM ELLEN
Like what, Bill Nye the Science Guy?

BILL NYE
Like solar energy! (Screens show solar energy field.) Solar mirrors are one way to convert the sun’s energy into electricity.

(BILL NYE and DREAM ELLEN appear on screen in warm-weather clothes and sunglasses.)

DREAM ELLEN
Cool! I mean, hot… I mean, coolly hot. Or hotly cool. So why don’t we just make everything solar?

BILL NYE
Ah, not so fast. For one thing, it’s not sunny enough everywhere. (Snaps fingers and sun turns to a thunderstorm.) And although the sunshine is free… (Snaps fingers again making it sunny once more.) solar electricity still isn’t that cheap. But it’s getting there.

(ELLEN experiments with snapping her fingers and causing storms, while her reflection goofs off.)

DREAM ELLEN
Okay, in the meantime, let’s just pick another category.

(Cut to wind turbines.)

BILL NYE
All right. Today, we’re using the clean energy of moving air—wind—to generate electricity.

DREAM ELLEN
Well then, why don’t we just get a bunch of wind farmers to harvest a big ole crop of wind?

BILL NYE
We’re starting to… where it’s windy. But remember, to power a whole city you need a whole lot of windmills.

DREAM ELLEN
And when the wind stops blowing—we’d be left in the dark, wouldn’t we?

(Cut to cityscape entering a blackout.)

BILL NYE
No way. We just switch to another source of energy!

(City lights come back on. Cut to a river and dam.)

DREAM ELLEN
I’m guessing this big red rock isn’t gonna give us energy when we need it.

BILL NYE
No, but this big gray wall might. It’s clean and efficient.

DREAM ELLEN
I know this one. Come on. Quiz me.

BILL NYE
Okay. Hydroelectric power plants convert the energy of falling water into electricity… (Cut to BILL NYE and DREAM ELLEN standing on top of the dam.) and are renewed by this natural resource.

(A personal raincloud dumps water on DREAM ELLEN’s head.)

DREAM ELLEN
What is rain?

BILL NYE
Correct.

DREAM ELLEN
(Wringing water out of her clothes.) So we just, uh, build more dams and our energy problems are solved.

BILL NYE
Not quite. (Voice echoing as camera zooms out further.) We’ve already used many of the best sites. And sometimes, building a dam can be pretty hard on an ecosystem.

DREAM ELLEN
Seems like there are pros and cons with every one of these. What gives?

BILL NYE
Well Ellen, there are no easy answers. (Cut to the duo back in the helicopter. DREAM ELLEN blow dries her hair.) The sun, water, geothermal steam, even wood, all contribute. Right now, these renewables provide about ten percent of the world’s energy. But we can expect them to be playing an even bigger role in the decades ahead.

DREAM ELLEN
That’s great, Bill, but we still need a heck of a lot more energy. Where is it coming from, and do you have a curling iron?

BILL NYE
Come on, I’ll show ya! (Cut to a train carrying coal.) Let’s hitch a ride with the solid fossil fuel!

DREAM ELLEN
Oh, I know this one: “What is coal?”

BILL NYE
Correct! And we’ve discovered two centuries’ worth!

DREAM ELLEN
Whoa! What about global warming?

BILL NYE
It’s a hot topic, with lots of questions. And it’s one of the big reasons scientists are working on ways to burn fuels, like coal, more efficiently than ever. (Cut to natural gas plant.) Ellen, what do you know about gas?

DREAM ELLEN
(Belch.) Well, if your stomach’s bothering you, I could get you some club soda.

BILL NYE
No!

DREAM ELLEN
Oh, you mean natural gas…

BILL NYE
It’s clean-burning. And at the rate we’re going, we’re set for about 60 years.

DREAM ELLEN
60 years? That’s only 10 more years than 50! 20 more than 40! 30 more than—

(Cut to BILL NYE and DREAM ELLEN driving through the facility.)

BILL NYE
Don’t—uh, don’t worry. We’re always finding more natural gas all the time. But we do need to use it wisely. So Ellen, how long have you been driving?

DREAM ELLEN
(Looking at her watch.) Heh, heh…

(She almost hits GAS PLANT WORKER.)

GAS PLANT WORKER
Whoa!

DREAM ELLEN
Sorry, pal. All righty. What’s next? (Cut to oil fields.) Oh! Oh! What is black gold? Texas tea. Swimmin’ pools. Movie stars. What is The Beverly Hillbillies? I mean—what is oil?

BILL NYE
Right! It’s our main source of energy, and we’ve found enough to last at least 50 years.

DREAM ELLEN
That’s all?

BILL NYE
We’re far from running on empty. And we’ve got some pretty far-out ways of finding more.

(Cut to outer space. DREAM ELLEN and BILL NYE float in astronaut suits.)

DREAM ELLEN
Wow, this is far-out.

BILL NYE
Satellites are one of the tools we use in our search for hidden deposits. But there are others.

DREAM ELLEN
Really? Ya know— (She crashes into satellite.) Oof! Uh, Houston… I think we have a problem.

BILL NYE
That is because most of the easily-reached petroleum deposits have already been tapped.

DREAM ELLEN
Helloooo?

BILL NYE
Most new discoveries will come from once inaccessible or hard-to-reach places.

(Cut to offshore oil platform.)

DREAM ELLEN
Wait just a minute—there’s oil here?

BILL NYE
Actually, the oil is buried way deep, under the ocean floor.

DREAM ELLEN
Oh. Well, then I guess we can’t get to it. So, where to next?

BILL NYE
Well hey, don’t give up! We can reach the oil with offshore drilling platforms, like this. Going in… Dive!

DREAM ELLEN
Bill?

BILL NYE
Dive!!

DREAM ELLEN
Bill?!

BILL NYE
Dive!!

DREAM ELLEN
Bill??!

(Camera pans beneath the water to show the height of the drilling platform.)

BILL NYE
Some drilling platforms are so tall, they would tower over the Empire State Building! I mean… that’s big!

(Cut to ELLEN and BILL NYE in a submarine.)

DREAM ELLEN
Oh, great. Just what our nightmare needs. A big ol’ human-munchin’, bone-crunchin’, Ellen-lunchin’ shark. Take her up, Captain! Rise! Rise! (Cut to atoms with electrons spinning around them.) Where are we now?

BILL NYE
The world of atomic power! You see, today we take atoms like these and split them apart to release energy. It’s called, fission. (Atoms begin to split.) Hang on!! Nuclear energy is expensive, and highly controversial.

(Cut to the sun.)

DREAM ELLEN
So I guess there’s never gonna be just one answer.

BILL NYE
But if we keep using our brain power, we’ll have lots of choices for the future. Maybe even unlock the power of the stars—fusion power!

DREAM ELLEN
I think I’m beginning to see the light!

(Cut to Jeopardy set.)

BILL NYE
Actually, I think it’s Double Jeopardy, Ellen.

JEOPARDY DIRECTOR
There you are! Where have you been?

DREAM ELLEN
The beginning of the universe! There were dinosaurs, and—and… and I was in the bathroom. There were no more paper towels.

JEOPARDY DIRECTOR
Yeah, right.

JEOPARDY PRODUCER (Voiceover)
Ten seconds to air! Could we get Ellen to the set, please?

ALEX TREBEK (Voiceover)
Well, you’ve been absolutely amazing so far—blowing away the opponents here.

JUDY (Voiceover)
Well, my IQ is 210.

(ELLEN returns to Jeopardy set, where ALEX TREBEK and JUDY are talking.)

ALEX TREBEK
But I’ll tell you something, Judy. The thing that really amazed me was that you and Ellen were in the same class in school!

JUDY
Yes! We were actually roommates. I used to call her Stupid Ellen.

JEOPARDY PRODUCER (Voiceover)
Five seconds!

ALEX TREBEK
Okay. (Audience applauds as show comes back from commercial.) All right, players, we’re ready to begin the second round. And Ellen, will you start us off by making a selection, please?

DREAM ELLEN
I sure will, Alex. I will take Dinosaurs for eight hundred.

JUDY
Ellen, you do know that the more expensive the question, the harder it is.

DREAM ELLEN
Oh, no, I didn’t. Lemme rethink that then. Uh, Dinosaurs for one thousand, Alex.

ALEX TREBEK
Okay. The answer is: This is when scientists believe dinosaurs first appeared on the earth. Ellen?

DREAM ELLEN
Uh, what is two hundred and twenty million years ago—give or take a day?

ALEX TREBEK
You’re absolutely right!

DREAM ELLEN
(Rattling off right answers.) What is the sun? What is hydrogen, Alex? What are photovoltaics? What is fire? Which, by the way, is what sparked the progress of human civilization, Alex. I don’t know if you knew that or not.

ALEX TREBEK
Correct again, Ellen, and amazingly enough, at the end of this Double Jeopardy round, you have managed to come from way behind to tie Judy for the lead. Well done!

DREAM ELLEN
Well, I just had to figure out how to work this little clicky thing here.

JUDY
How could she possibly learn so much during the commercial break? She’s obviously cheating!

ALEX TREBEK
Zip it, Judy. Dr. Einstein, you have no money, sir. And that means we’re going to have to say goodbye. However, we want to thank you for coming here today, and we do have some lovely parting gifts for you backstage.

DREAM ELLEN
Yep, here’s a parting gift for you right now, Al.

JOHNNY GILBERT
It’s a long-lasting, low-energy light bulb. Enjoy the efficiency!

(ALBERT EINSTEIN exits.)

ALEX TREBEK
Boy, there goes a real bundle of energy, huh? All right ladies—you will recall that our Final Jeopardy category on today’s program is: The Future of Energy. And so, if you’re ready, here’s the Final Jeopardy answer for you: This is the one source of power that will never run out. Good luck.

(Final Jeopardy music begins. DREAM ELLEN and JUDY both take their time writing answers.)

JOHNNY GILBERT (Voiceover)
If you would like to have your own energy nightmare, place a self-addressed, stamped envelope under your pillow, or check us out on the web at www.energynightmare.game.

ALEX TREBEK (Voiceover)
Will Judy remain our Jeopardy champion? Or will Ellen take the lead? We’ll know momentarily.

JOHNNY GILBERT (Voiceover)
Some contestants on Jeopardy will receive a year’s supply of energy. Energy—you make the world go ’round!

ALEX TREBEK (Voiceover)
Once again, the answer is: This is the one source of power that will never run out.

(Music comes to an end.)

ALEX TREBEK
Time’s up, players. Let’s see how well you did. Judy, we’ll start with you. You wrote down… nothing.

JUDY
That’s correct, Alex—because there is no answer.

ALEX TREBEK
Well, actually, you’re wrong. Let’s take a look at your wager. (Her wager of $17,800 appears on screen.) Oh, that’s too bad. You risked everything you had, and that means you lose $17,800 and you wind up with nothing. Let’s go down to Ellen now and see what she came up with as the response to our Final Jeopardy clue. Ellen?

DREAM ELLEN
Uh, what is brain power, Alex?

ALEX TREBEK
You are correct—and your wager? You, too, risked everything, but you double your score to $35,600—which makes you, Ellen, our new Jeopardy champion! Congratulations!

(Balloons fall on DREAM ELLEN.)

JOHNNY GILBERT (Voiceover)
Be sure to join us tomorrow, as Jeopardy dream sequence week continues.

(ELLEN appears on screen and turns off the dream behind her with a remote.)

ELLEN
So, that’s how I became an energy expert. Again, “expert” may not be the exact right word. More expert-ish. Anyway, I’ve gotta go—look out for the dinosaur! (Chuckles.) Kidding. I’m a kidder. Bye-bye now.

(ELLEN exits the screen. A loud dinosaur noise is heard in the blackout, and then the lights come up. Cast member makes exit announcement.)

Ellen’s Energy Adventure Pre-Show (Epcot)

(Pre-show. Guests enter theatre and are asked by a cast member to stand. Video begins. ELLEN appears on screen.)

ELLEN
Hi, and welcome to the Universe of Energy. How are ya? No need to answer. You know, you’re probably surprised to see me here, aren’t you? But then, there’s probably a lot of places you’d be surprised to see me when you think about it. If you were driving in your car, for instance, okay? Close your eyes, you’re in your car—no, don’t close your eyes in the car—but right now, think about it. You’re in your car, you’re driving, and then all of a sudden from the back seat I just pop up and go, “Hey!!” You’d just whack me in the head, wouldn’t you? That would be—that wouldn’t be nice. But then it wouldn’t be nice for me to do that to you. How’d I get in your car, anyway? Can you—did you lock the car? Maybe it was your fault. Maybe I’m just teaching you a lesson. But the point is, to see me here, as a spokesperson for the Universe of Energy. I mean that’s… crazy. You know? I mean I’m an expert on a lot of things. You know that. I know that. But, uh, not a lot of things—a few things. But energy? I mean, there was a time I could care less about it. And then, suddenly everything changed. One day, I was sitting in my apartment… (Snaps fingers and nothing happens.) I said, I was sitting in my apartment when— (Snaps again and apartment appears. MEMORY ELLEN enters carrying a cat and sits on couch.) There it is. I’d offer you some snacks, but she—I mean I—can’t hear me. (To MEMORY ELLEN) Hey, hey, you! How about sharing some of those chips?

MEMORY ELLEN
No, you’re on a diet!

ELLEN
Me? How about you?

TV ANNOUNCER (Voiceover)
You’re watching ABC!

ELLEN
Anyhoo, I’m watching TV, and my favorite show’s about to start.

JOHNNY GILBERT (Voiceover)
This is Jeopardy!

MEMORY ELLEN
Yes!

ELLEN
Told you it was my favorite show.

(There is a knock at the door in the memory.)

MEMORY ELLEN
What is, “Who is it?”

(BILL NYE enters the apartment.)

ELLEN
And of course, no one locks their doors in New York…

BILL NYE
Hey, it’s your neighbor—Bill Nye the Science Guy.

MEMORY ELLEN
Hey, Bill Nye the Science Guy, it’s Ellen the, uh—just Ellen I guess. What can I do ya for?

BILL NYE
I’d like to borrow some aluminum foil, a clothespin, and a candle.

MEMORY ELLEN
Another hot date, huh?

BILL NYE
Actually, I’m working on a new experiment.

MEMORY ELLEN
Uh, take whatever you need. I don’t want to miss any of the game.

BILL NYE
What’re you watching?

MEMORY ELLEN
Jeopardy.

BILL NYE
Yes!

JOHNNY GILBERT (Voiceover)
And now, our returning champion, a professor of energy at Princeton University: Dr. Judy Peterson.

MEMORY ELLEN
Oh my gosh!

BILL NYE
What?

MEMORY ELLEN
It’s my old college roommate, Judy Peterson. She was such a smarty-pants know-it-all. I had the best nickname for her, though.

BILL NYE
What was that?

MEMORY ELLEN
Stupid Judy.

BILL NYE
Ellen, that makes no sense—she has a PhD!

MEMORY ELLEN
I know, but it made me feel better. So now I guess she’s some hotshot energetic professor.

BILL NYE
She’s a professor of energy!

MEMORY ELLEN
Whatever. Who cares about Stupid Judy and her stupid energy?

BILL NYE
Ellen, energy’s the most important thing in… the universe!

MEMORY ELLEN
Oh yeah, sure—take her side.

BILL NYE
I’m not taking her side—it’s just that, without energy, nothing would go, nothing would happen. I mean, there’d be… nothin’!

MEMORY ELLEN
Well, then we’d really be in jeopardy, now, wouldn’t we?

BILL NYE
Ahem! Yeah, well, what is, uh, “thanks for the supplies and, uh, see you later.”

MEMORY ELLEN
What is, “Bye-bye.”

(BILL NYE leaves the apartment.)

ALEX TREBEK (Voiceover)
It’s the Parliament of Israel.

JUDY (Voiceover)
What is the Knesset?

ALEX TREBEK (Voiceover)
Right again. Go.

MEMORY ELLEN
Right again, Judy. (To cat.) Stupid Judy. Stupid energy. (To TV.) Maybe the universe needs energy, but I don’t. I’ll take a nap for a hundred.

ELLEN
(On the phone.) Hahahaha, I know! Big piece of corn right there in the teeth, how could you not see—I’m gonna have to call you back. (Clears throat. To audience.) Now as most of you know, when someone falls asleep watching TV, that person is going to have a… what? Anyone? Anyone?

WOMAN IN AUDIENCE
Uh, crick in the neck?

MAN IN AUDIENCE
Bad hair day!

2ND WOMAN IN AUDIENCE
A dream sequence.

ELLEN
That’s right, ma’am, a dream sequence! Right. Mine was more of a nightmare, actually. And uh, let’s—actually, we should get some fog in here. Always nice to spice up a dream sequence with fog. (Fog begins to infiltrate ELLEN’s shot.) No, not in here. Over there. In the dream. (Fog moves into MEMORY ELLEN’s apartment.) Scary, huh? Ooooooh!

(Dream sequence begins on the Jeopardy set. JUDY and ALBERT EINSTEIN stand behind their podiums.)

JOHNNY GILBERT
This is Jeopardy! Now, here are today’s contestants: Dr. Judy Peterson, Dr. Albert Einstein, and finally… just Ellen. (DREAM ELLEN rushes in.) And now, here’s the host of Jeopardy—Alex Trebek!

ALEX TREBEK
Thank you, Johnny Gilbert. Hello, contestants. Welcome to our program, and good luck to you in the game. Here are the categories for the first round of play: Solar Energy, Wind Power, Energy From Water, Fossil Fuels, Fusion, and finally… Gas. Ellen, since this is your dream, we’ll let you make the first selection.

DREAM ELLEN
Alright, Alex. Uh, I will take, um—eenie meenie minie—uh, Fossil Fuels for, uh—oh, let’s go for a hundred.

ALEX TREBEK
Fine. The answer is: This was formed from microscopic plants and animals trapped in ocean floor sediments millions of years ago. Ellen?

DREAM ELLEN
Yes, I know that one. That’s uh.. that, um, is, um—what… what is… hmm… What is um, uh, stuff trapped—microscopic fuels and… and plants and… and animals, and… and—

(Buzzer indicates she is out of time.)

ALEX TREBEK
Sorry, Ellen. We were looking for something more than just an embellishment of what I had already said. Anyone else? Judy?

JUDY
What is petroleum, Alex? (Cut to JUDY answering several questions in a row.) What is bituminous?What is solar-thermal conversion? What is hydroelectric? What is helium?

(At the end of the round, JUDY’s score is $17,800, ALBERT EINSTEIN has $0, and DREAM ELLEN has -$100.)

ALEX TREBEK
And so, as we come to the end of the first round, ladies and gentlemen, Judy has a commanding lead; Ellen has her work cut out for her; and Dr. Einstein is nowhere—relatively speaking.

DREAM ELLEN
Is this a nightmare, or what?

(Bell rings indicating a correct answer, and DREAM ELLEN’s score goes up to $0.)

ALEX TREBEK
Oh, Ellen, your first correct response!

DREAM ELLEN
Wait a minute. (Snaps fingers.) Freeze! (The scene freezes.) This is my dream. I’m in control now. I can still win. I still have a chance to.

BILL NYE (Entering)
Ellen! Ellen!

DREAM ELLEN
Who is it?

BILL NYE
It’s me, Bill Nye the Science Guy.

DREAM ELLEN
Hey, I’m glad you came to help me.

BILL NYE
Actually, I came to see Einstein. Wow, you’re getting clobbered.

DREAM ELLEN
Yeah. This nightmare Jeopardy version’s a lot harder than the home version. Can you help me?

BILL NYE
Sure! But first, we have to go back.

DREAM ELLEN
Back… stage?

BILL NYE
No, no, no. Way back! Like, many billion years ago!

DREAM ELLEN
Okay, but can we stop at a minimart or something and get some snacks? ‘Cause, I have a tendency to get hungry after a couple billion years.

BILL NYE
No can do—time’s a-wastin’! Come on!

(DREAM ELLEN and BILL NYE exit toward a bright light.)

ELLEN
Wait—it’s not even over. It gets really weird from here. Now some person I don’t even know reminds me there’s no eating, drinking, smoking, or flash photography allowed in my dream.

CAST MEMBER (Ad Lib)
Ladies and gentlemen, as just a reminder, there’s no eating, drinking, smoking, or flash photography allowed in Ellen’s dream.

ELLEN
And no videotaping. Okay? And those of you who are just walking in right now—you’re late. Where have you been? I love your hair. No, not you. I mean, it’s all right, but that’s… cute. Yeah. Um, anyway, so you’re not completely lost, here’s a recap of what has been going on: I’m Ellen. Hi! I love Jeopardy; I used to not care about energy at all, until I had a nightmare that I was on Jeopardy and all the categories were about energy. Oh, don’t I know it’s scary. So my neighbor, Bill Nye, steps in, to help me out—Bill Nye the Science Guy. You know him? Anyway, so he comes in to help me out. That’s what’s going on. Got it? Good. If you don’t, then that’s your problem, because you’re late. And you think about that next time!

The Spirit of Norway – Maelstrom Post-Show Film (Epcot) – 1988-2014

(Guests finish riding Maelstrom and proceed to theatre.)

NARRATOR
To know this land’s heart and soul—to discover its spirit.

(Fjords appear on screen.)

Norway. To discover its spirit.

(Cut to a small boy standing in the light cast by a circular window.)

It was born in challenge—in a thousand years of challenging the seas.

(Boy walks away to reveal a huge longboat inside the structure. Cut back and forth between images of seamen building boats and the boy admiring the finished product. Cut between a helicopter flying over oil rigs and a crew sailing a boat. The rig lets out a jet of fire as the boat’s captain yells to his crew. Cut back to the boy admiring the boat.)

It’s a spirit that knows a quiet sense of timelessness.

(Cut to a fishing village, where a boat plies the water and gulls fly overhead. Residents go about their daily lives. Cut to an image of a skier fastening skis to prepare for a run.)

Our spirit lives in daring.

(Skier speeds downhill and off a jump.)

It lives in our traditions.

(Cut to a city street in the midst of a festival, complete with music, parades, crowds, flags, and people on horseback.)

Our spirit—it lives in our people.

(Closeups on various Norwegian people, including children, families, business people, blue collar workers, sailors, ballet dancers, scientists, horse-drawn carriages, etc. Cut back to the child looking at the boat.)

Our spirit—it lives in our people. Norway.

(Dissolve to a boat speeding through the fjords. Film ends.)

NARRATOR
You are not the first to pass this way. Nor shall you be the last. Those who seek the spirit of Norway face peril and adventure—but more often, find beauty and charm.

(Odin’s eye begins to glow.)

We have always lived with the sea, so look first to the spirit of the seafarer.

(Boats enter viking village.)

Long ago, Norway was a land of vikings. That was the beginning of our love for the sea.

(Boats pass a family speaking Norwegian and a viking blowing a horn.)

There are those who see Norway’s spirit veiled in a land of forests and mystery—where trolls still prowl the water’s edge.

(Boats pass THREE-HEADED TROLL.)

Maelstrom-1987-3-600x402TROLL 1
What’s this? How dare you come here?!

TROLL 2
Invaders!

TROLL 1
Stop! This is troll country.

TROLL 3
Look away—be gone!

TROLL 1
I’ll cast a spell.

TROLL 2
Yes! Yes!

TROLL 1
You’ll disappear.

TROLL 3
Disappear! Disappear!

TROLL 1
Back! Back! Over the falls!

(TROLLS laugh. Boats begin to travel backward.)

NARRATOR
Before recorded time, Norway’s spirit roamed the seas of the far north and beyond.

(Boats pass several polar bears.)

Today, Norway’s spirit still thunders in her great fjords!

(Boats continue moving backward and look like they are going to go over the waterfall. ROCK TROLL appears.)

ROCK TROLL
Hmm, what’s this? How dare you come this way! Down to the North Sea with you! (Laughs.)

(Boats alter course and plunge forward down a small drop. They pass oil rigs and pull in to small fishing village to unload.)

NARRATOR
Norway’s spirit has always been—will always be—adventure!

Journey into Imagination with Figment (Epcot)

(Loading area announcements)

DR. NIGEL CHANNING
To ensure your safe tour of our Sensory Labs, please remain seated with your hands, arms, feet, and legs inside your tour tram. Keep a watchful eye on your children, and, um… oh! Oh, yes—please don’t let your imaginations run wild.

(Spanish safety spiel.) 

(Ride begins.)

DR. NIGEL CHANNING
Welcome, welcome, welcome to our special drive-thru open house! I’m Dr. Nigel Channing—chairman of the Imagination Institute. Hello! On your tour, you’ll see how the five humans senses  can help capture your imagination.

(FIGMENT appears on screen.)

FIGMENT
Oh, oh! Can I go too?!

DR. NIGEL CHANNING
Absolutely not! Uh, this is one of our discoveries—the Figment of imagination.

FIGMENT
Yeah, I know all about the senses! There’s sight. (Puts glasses on DR. CHANNING.) Sound. (Sings a high note that shatters the glasses.) Smell. (Sniffs DR. CHANNING’s armpit.) Touch. Coochie coochie coo! (Tickles DR. CHANNING.) And taste. (Licks DR. CHANNING’s face.) Tastes like chicken! Can I go? Please, please, please!

DR. NIGEL CHANNING
No! I don’t want you out of my sight.

FIGMENT
Out of sight? Okay! (He disappears.) Come on, everybody! Here we go!

DR. NIGEL CHANNING
Figment, you are not to interfere with the tour!

Our first stop is the Sound Lab. We’ll begin by testing your hearing with a series of tones. Left ear. (Tone sounds.) Right ear. (Tone sounds.) Left. (Tone sounds.) Right. (Tone sounds. Phone rings.) Hmm, what? This is odd… Hello.

FIGMENT
Hellllllloo!

DR. NIGEL CHANNING
Who is this?

FIGMENT
It’s Figment!

DR. NIGEL CHANNING
Figment?! I thought I told you not to interfere.

FIGMENT
But you’ve got it wrong, Doc. It’s not about listening with your ears—it’s about listening with your imagination.

DR. NIGEL CHANNING
Now I’ve completely lost my train of thought.

(Sound of a train whistle.)

FIGMENT
No you haven’t. (Train sound gets louder.) It’s over here! All aboard!! Woo-woo! Next stop: imagination!

For every sound your ears are hearing,
A thousand thoughts can start appearing.
And each of us imagines different things,
From just a sound, your mind has wings!

DR. NIGEL CHANNING
Continuing now, if I may, in a calm, scientific, Figment-free manner—the things we see with our eyes can control the eyes of the imagination. Let’s begin by using the eye chart to test your vision. Now, all together, if you would please read line three. And here—

(FIGMENT appears on the eye chart and knocks down all the letters. He then rearranges them to spell his name.)

FIGMENT
With F-I-G-M-E-N-T,
You can see things differently!

Sure, you can see with your eyes. But imagine what you could see if you used your imagination! Follow the bouncing Figment!

(The lyrics to the song appear on screen as FIGMENT’s head bounces to indicate when to sing.)

One spark of light can light your fancy.
Your mind sees more than what your eyes see.
Your sense of sight can make your fancy fly.
There’s more to sight than meets the eye!

DR. NIGEL CHANNING
I say imagination must be captured and controlled.

FIGMENT
Nuh-uh! Imagination works best when it’s set free! Just turn your imagination loose, and anything can happen!

DR. NIGEL CHANNING
Figment? Figment?! Oh, he’s gone. Our research shows that smells often trigger the imagination—especially when pleasant, familiar smells come into play.

FIGMENT
Come in to play? (Chuckles.) I’d love to!

DR. NIGEL CHANNING
Figment, this is not a good time!

FIGMENT
It’s always a good time to use your imagination. So let the good times roll!

(FIGMENT appears on the Smell Lab screens and turns them into a slot machine. The three wheels spin and reveal three FIGMENTs dressed as skunks.)

FIGMENT
Woo-hoo! You win one scent!

DR. NIGEL CHANNING
Figment, don’t! (FIGMENT sprays skunk smell at the guests.) Oh, yuck! That really stinks!!

FIGMENT
Of course, Doc! The nose knows.

One awful whiff can send you reeling.
One lovely sniff can be appealing.
Your mind decides what enters through your nose.
That’s how you tell a skunk is not a rose.

DR. NIGEL CHANNING
You know—I’m sorry, but after that big stink in the Smell Lab, I hesitate to send you into the Touch and Taste Labs. Perhaps I should end my open house right here.

FIGMENT
Great idea! We’ll go to my open house instead—it’s much more fun! Right this way, everybody.

DR. NIGEL CHANNING
Figment, what is going on? You’re turning this entire open house upside down.

FIGMENT
Upside down? Now you’re talkin’! That’s the best idea you’ve had all day!

With just a spark of inspiration,
I’ve made my house an innovation.
Imagination really clowns around:
Makes downside up, and upside down!

(Vehicles move through upside-down house.)

Now, here’s a real open house. Come on in! So what do you think—is it me?

DR. NIGEL CHANNING
More than you can imagine…

FIGMENT
But Doc, it’s exactly what I imagine! Imagination is the brain’s open house!

DR. NIGEL CHANNING
Oh, of course. Imagination is the act of turning your thinking upside down! Come on, Figment—it’s time to get back to the Institute.

FIGMENT
I know a shortcut!

DR. NIGEL CHANNING
Well, if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em!

We all have sparks!

FIGMENT
Imagination!
That’s how our minds create creations.

DR. NIGEL CHANNING
We set them free, and oh, what they can do!

DR. NIGEL CHANNING AND FIGMENT
Those magic sparks from me and you.

FIGMENT
(Laughs.) You see, Doc—I knew you’d get it. Because you’ve got a wonderful imagination!

DR. NIGEL CHANNING
I do? Oh, yes, well, thank you Figment. (Appears on screen.) And so, as you can plainly see, imagination works the best when it’s set free.

FIGMENT
You said it, Doc! Imagination is a blast!

(With a blast of air, the final scene is revealed with colorful FIGMENT animatronics singing the theme song.)

FIGMENT CHORUS
Imagination! Imagination!
A dream (a dream)
Can be (can be)
A dream come true.
With just that spark from me and you.

DR. NIGEL CHANNING
One little spark of inspiration
Is at the heart of all creation.
Right at the start of everything that’s new,
One little spark lights up for you.

(Vehicles move to unload area.)

FIGMENT CHORUS
Imagination! Imagination!
A dream (a dream)
Can be (can be)
A dream come true.
With just that spark from me and you.

DR. NIGEL CHANNING
And now, we invite you to set your imaginations free in the ImageWorks.

FIGMENT
Hooray! Let’s go play!

To start your play at the world’s greatest playground, you gotta start at the Magic Kingdom Park! Here we go! Six lands of fantasy make up this imaginative place for kids of all ages. I’m gonna hit ’em all. (In front of Pirates of the Caribbean.) Pirates of the Caribbean! Arrr. (Cut to Mickey’s Philharmagic.) Hey, Mickey’s Philharmagic. It’s 3D! Woo! (Cut to the stocks in Liberty Square.) Peekaboo! (Cut to Space Mountain. STACEY screams. Cut to MICKEY and MINNIE waving in front of the castle.) Hi Mickey!! (Cut to Mad Tea Party.) Are you dizzy yet? (Voiceover.) So let’s dive in there and take a look at the Magic Kingdom Park must-dos.

(Title reads “Must-Do Disney”.)

STACEY
Time to do the must-do! (Cut to Splash Mountain.) Look, it’s Splash Mountain. You’re gonna get wet! (Guests scream.) Yeah! (Voiceover.) Splash Mountain is a time-tested thrill-seekers’ and fun-seekers’ classic… (On screen.) I’m-a ride that puppy! (Voiceover) …that happens to double as a cartoon come to real life. (Screams on ride. Voiceover.) Everyone remembers when they were first tall enough to board that infamous log and hit the Briar Patch. (On ride.) Yes! Woo!

(Cut to “it’s a small world.” Voiceover.) In the name of everything classic in the entire world: “it’s a small world.” (On screen.) And here it is! (Voiceover.) Take the legendary boat ride around the globe on this musical tour of nations. All kinds of international dolls sing and dance to the famous song “it’s a small world.” Cuh-lass-ic! (On screen.) It’s a small world! (Looks at the camera through her fingers and pretends to smash it.)

(Cut to Festival of Fantasy Parade. Voiceover.) You know what’s not small? This dragon! And this parade. The Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade winds through Magic Kingdom Park, with some of your favorite characters like you’ve never seen them before! And state-of-the-art floats that tell their stories in an amazing way!

(Cut to Fantasyland.) Whoa, there are two castles—two! (Standing with the BEAST.) Beastie, Beastie! (They hug. Cut to statue by Beast’s castle.) Might be time for a pedicure. (Posing with GASTON.) Prom pose! (Cut to walking by Gaston’s Tavern.) Welcome to a place, where mermaids sing, beauties tell tales, and beasts roar. (Roars at a lion statue.) Welcome to Fantasyland!

(Cut to Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. Voiceover.) And welcome to the rockin-est, rollin-est mine around—the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. This isn’t your everyday mine train, folks. It rocks—from side to side, in fact—making you feel every twist and turn of the track. Parents, kids, even evil queens can love this one! It’s where a million diamonds shine, and a whole new excitement holds sway at Magic Kingdom Park.

(Cut to Under the Sea: Journey of the Little Mermaid. On screen.) We’re going under the sea with the Little Mermaid! (Voiceover.) Become part of Ariel and Prince Eric’s world in Under the Sea: Journey of the Little Mermaid. Board your very own clamshell and head off on a musical adventure, teeming with favorite characters and memorable scenes from the movie. Nobody told me Ursula was gonna be here! (On screen.) She’s not behind me, is she?

(Cut to Be Our Guest Restaurant. On screen.) All this exploring is making me hungry! (Stomach growls.) Whoa! Sounds like there’s a beast in there. Good thing I can dine like one at the Be Our Guest Restaurant in the Beast’s castle. Let’s go! (Voiceover.) You can dine in one of three enchanted dining rooms—even the West Wing. Who knows, you might even see an enchanted rose. (With BEAST on screen.) Shall we, sir? (They bow to each other.)

(Cut to Storybook Circus. On screen.) Welcome to Storybook Circus, where you can ride the classic Dumbo—or Dumbos—and celebrate the golden age of the circus! The cool thing is, now when you choose the standby line, you’ll get a pager. Then you can just go play under the big top, cool off, and have fun, all under the circus tent, until… (Cut to riding the attraction.) It’s time to fly with Dumbo! Looking good, buddy.

(Voiceover.) In Fantasyland, you’ll be living the kind of fantasy that will stay with you for happily ever after.

(Epcot segment.)

STACEY
All right. Continuing on with Must-Do Disney, we hightail it on over to Epcot.

(Title reads “Epcot”.)

It’s the wind in your face, the sweet smells of the landscape in the air, and the fantasy of flight that make Soarin’ an absolute sensory spectacular. Soarin’!

(Cut to Test Track.) Do you like speed? Going zero to 65? (On ride.) How’s my hair? (In front of attraction.) Well what about going zero to the digital future? (Voiceover.) That’s right—with the reimagined Test Track, guests will drive straight into the world of digital design. (On screen.) It’s our Epcot must-do!

(Cut to design studio.) You can virtually design your car. Wow. (Voiceover.) And feel like you’re part of the Chevrolet design studio. (On screen. Finishes her car.) Don’t you love it? Yay! (Voiceover.) And in the end, you can check out how your car did in a virtual test drive. (Getting in car on screen.) Buckle up! (Rides through attraction screaming and laughing. Approaching speed test.) Whoa, what’s going on? I don’t wanna go through there! (Screams as car goes around track. Attraction ends with return to unload area.) Whew. A little windblown, but awesome! (Voiceover.) When it comes to must-dos, this is one ride you don’t wanna miss! (On screen.) I didn’t wanna make a big deal about it, but I won. Winner, yeah, me!

(Disney’s Hollywood Studios segment.)

STACEY

While you’re visiting that galaxy far, far away, you never know where the Force might take you.

STAR TOURS VOICEOVER
Hold it right there, Captain. We’re looking for this Rebel spy. Have you seen her?

(STACEY’s photo appears on the screen.)

STACEY
That’s not really me… I have a bad feeling about this! (Laughs.) Not really. You can ride again and again, ’cause there’s over 50 different adventures you can experience. (Screams.) I’m really not a spy. Seriously. (Voiceover) Plus, some of your favorite characters have joined the trip. C-3PO, R2-D2. (On screen.) And maybe even Darth Vader. Watch out! (Cheers and screams. Cut to queue. Holds up hands like Princess Leia buns.) May the mouse be with you!

(Disney’s Animal Kingdom segment.)

STACEY
This is Must-Do Disney, and we’re going everywhere around Walt Disney World Resort to bring you the must-dos. So without further ado, let’s do the must-do at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park!

(Title reads “Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park”.)

STACEY
Africa, Asia, dinosaurs alive and well—you name it, it lives here at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park! (Montage of scenes from Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Voiceover.) There’s a lot of monkey business goin’ on around here. (Beating her chest on screen.) Ahhhh! (Watching a gorilla.) Looks like my uncle Phil… (Standing in photo cutout.) Have you seen any elephants? (An elephant trumpets.)

(Cut to merchandise stand. Tries on a hat.) Hey, now I’m ready for a safari! (Cut to Kilimanjaro Safaris.) Woo! We’re four-wheelin’ now, baby! (Seeing a rhino.)

(Cut to Kali River Rapids and Primeval Whirl.) I’m about to get my ride on! (Voiceover.) One I like to call the wash cycle, and the other the spin cycle. (On screen.) Let’s ride! (On Kali River Rapids.) This isn’t bad at all! (On Primeval Whirl.) Whoa! (Cut to footage of screaming on both rides. Gets wet on Kali River Rapids.) I am soaked!

(Title reads “Must-Do Disney”.)

STACEY
To do the must-do at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, you gotta get on over to Asia—where perched on the horizon is a mountainous beast called Expedition Everest! (Cut to Expedition Everest. Voiceover.) A high-altitude, high-speed train adventure for those who want to take on the treacherous terrain of the forbidden mountain and come face to face with the legendary yeti. (On screen.) I’m not afraid of a roller coaster that goes backwards. (Screams. Board attraction.) It’s yeti time! Woo! (Riding Expedition Everest.) O-o-okay. (Looking at hill.) Oh, that’s high. Woo, way up there, yeah… Here we go! (Get to the top of hill where there is no track ahead.) There doesn’t seem to be any track. (Coaster goes backward and she screams. Ride finishes.) Awesome!

(My Disney Experience app segment.)

STACEY
(Voiceover.) The My Disney Experience app makes the Walt Disney World theme parks even more fun! If you haven’t downloaded it yet, then go ahead!

(On screen.) Plus, you can download it for free! It’s easy to use with the Wi-Fi available in most areas of the parks. The best part of all is that my plans and must-dos are in one place. Pretty awesome, right? (Laughs.) It’s not like I’m forgetful or anything… Wait, where was I going? (Checks her phone.) Oh, time to head to our next must-do! Come on!

(FASTPASS+ and PhotoPass segment.)

STACEY
Pretty crazy stuff, right? Okay, so listen—there’s some great ways to pump up the fun and make the most of your time in the parks. So to help you along with your must-dos and make your time here amazing, we’d like to point out some helpful tips that’ll do just that. Take a look!

(Cut to Disney’s Animal Kingdom.) Another cool part of MyMagic+ is FASTPASS+. It’s great because you can reserve access to select attractions and shows in advance when you use FASTPASS+.

You can choose times for character greetings, attractions, and more. It’s easy to update your plans too! (On screen.) Make sure to purchase your theme park tickets early so you can select your FASTPASS+ experiences, see your FASTPASS+ times, and make changes on the go! You can also make changes at handy kiosks you’ll find at all four theme parks. Boom—easy. It’s a must-have for all your must-dos.

(Cut to Disney PhotoPass montage.) Disney PhotoPass service is a great way to get awesome shots with everyone in the picture. So boom! (Voiceover.) The Disney PhotoPass photographer takes top-notch shots and then those photos are connected to your park ticket, MagicBand, or even a Disney PhotoPass card. You can load up with great shots throughout your trip! Then, simply go online and create an account or log in to view and even share your photos on Facebook or through your email.

And it’s all for one price. With magical extras like animated magic shots and attraction videos, there’s never been a better way to capture, relive, and share the magic of your Walt Disney World Resort vacation! Just purchase MemoryMaker at select Disney resort and theme park merchandise locations. (On screen.) There you have it—easy! Besides your brain, there isn’t an easier way to take your memories with you. Sweet!

(Voiceover.) Whether it’s reserving access to an attraction with FASTPASS+, finding out how to get around the parks, or even making a dining reservation… (On screen.) MyMagic+ is a must-have top-do must-do for any Walt Disney World vacation. Be sure and get yours before you go!

(Disney Water Parks segment.)

STACEY
How cool is that, right? Well, speaking of cool, there’s no better way to cool off than hitting the Disney Water Parks—the only water parks on the planet that beat the beach, pummel the pools, and flat-out blow other water parks away! Let’s dive in!

(Title reads “Disney’s Water Parks.”)

STACEY
(Cut to Typhoon Lagoon. Screams as she goes down a slide. Voiceover.) Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park is a tropical paradise unlike anything you’ve ever seen. (On screen.) So let’s hit it! Woo!

(Title reads “Must-Do Disney.”)

STACEY
(Swimming under the water with fish. She comes up above the surface.) Awesome! (Voiceover.) A watery playground of water slides, which promises a wonderful watery adventure. (On screen.) Cool! (Voiceover.) Thrill-seekers and chill-seekers alike can conquer one of the largest inland wave pools. (Screams as she is knocked over by a wave.) Cowabunga!

(Cut to Blizzard Beach.) Come on! Let’s go to Blizzard Beach!

(Title reads “Must-Do Disney.”)

STACEY
(Running up the stairs to Summit Plummet.) It’s go time. (Goes down the slide and screams.) When do I do it again? (Cut to Teamboat Springs.) Teamboat Springs? You can throw the whole family in that puppy! (Riding chair lift.) I’m on the top of the world! (Voiceover.) Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park is another sweet way to “wet” your water park appetite. It’s packed with downhill thrills and lots of ways to cold chill. From black diamonds to bunny slopes, it’s the peak of water park cool. (Steps out of inner tube on screen.) That was amazing!

Kinda makes you wanna throw on the bathing suit and slather on some sunscreen, doesn’t it? Make sure you check ’em out!

(Disney Springs segment.)

STACEY
So, what about all the shopping, dining, and nightlife here at Walt Disney World Resort? Well, you’re in luck—because there’s a ton of it!

(Title reads “Disney Springs.”)

STACEY
(Cut to Disney Springs.) Right here is where you could be saying “yum” and “wow” every five seconds! (Voiceover.) A one-of-a-kind place to discover what’s new, connect with what matters, and to experience what’s next. That’s right—it’s time to check out Disney Springs! (On screen.) Ooh, ice cream.

(Voiceover.) Here, you can start a trend at Havaianas, find the perfect top at Chapel Hats, or take the act of shaving to an art form at the Art of Shaving.

(Cut to World of Disney. Voiceover.) And the World of Disney is the largest Disney character store in the country! There are things here you can’t find anywhere else. (Cut to Harley Davidson store. On screen wearing a biker jacket.) Ready to hit the road? Don’t miss the Harley shop! Get on your bike and ride. (Cut to Lego Store. Voiceover.) And if you wanna find the perfect piece to your shopping experience, there’s The Lego Store. Literally millions of combinations. (On screen in front of the store, holding a Lego.) How come her hair looks better than mine? Okay, all this talk of shopping is making me hungry. Let’s go eat!

(Voiceover.) If you’re hungry and ready to be blown away, there’s a restaurant for every tastebud you’ve got! You can grab a bite by (or float on) the waterfront at The Boathouse. Relax yourself Florida style at Dockside Margaritas. And even dine right in the jungle at T-Rex Restaurant. Or even share a pint or two with your besties at Raglan Road Irish Pub and Restaurant. (On screen next to a statue.) Top o’ the mornin’ to ya! (Waves her hand in front of the statue’s face.) He’s the quiet type—I like that.

You can take your tapas to a whole new level at Paradiso 37. (Cut to Splitsville.) And if you wanna be the next kingpin of your vacation, don’t miss Splitsville Luxury Lanes. (Cut to inside bowling alley. Picking up a ball.) This should be interesting. (Bowls.) And the crowd goes wild! (Voiceover.) With 30 lanes of bowling, plus billiards, dancing, and dining, it’s where the atmosphere is cool retro and the menu is unexpected. (Gets a plate of sushi on screen.) Sushi with your strikes, anyone?

(Cut to La Nouba. Voiceover.) But when it comes to a must-do, you can’t miss La Nouba by Cirque du Soleil. All of the Cirque du Soleil shows are different—did you know the La Nouba show is exclusive to the Walt Disney World Resort? You can’t see it anywhere else! No matter your age, if you’re up for a whole lotta eye, ear, and imagination candy, then grab some tickets for La Nouba by Cirque du Soleil.

(Special Event segment – if applicable.)

STACEY
Throughout the year at the Walt Disney World Resort, there are amazing special events you won’t want to miss. And lucky you—right now is one of those times. It’s also one of your must-do Disney items. Watch this!

(Seasonal event segments play.)

(Tickets segment.)

STACEY
So, there’s a lot of great must-dos out there so far, right? You might be asking, “What’s the best way to see them?” Well, they’re called Magic Your Way Tickets. (Cut to Mickey waving. Voiceover.) He’s so cute.

(Voiceover.) If you think you wanna go from theme park to theme park on the same day, that’s easy too! Just add the Park Hopper option to a two-day or more Magic Your Way Base Ticket. One-day tickets are also available. (On screen.) There’s so much to see! I love it!

(Voiceover.) Now, to add on all the other great stuff outside the theme parks—like the Disney Water Parks… (On screen at Blizzard Beach.) Happy day! (Voiceover.) …DisneyQuest indoor interactive theme park, Disney’s Oak Trail Golf Course… (On screen, she hits a golf ball.) Did you get that? It’s still going, isn’t it? (Voiceover.) …or ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex, just add the Water Park Fun and More option and you’re in! Already have your tickets but wanna see or do more? No problem! You can upgrade your tickets through the last day of use. Just purchase your tickets on the My Disney Experience app, at Guest Services, or wherever Disney tickets are sold to learn more.

(Closing segment.)

STACEY
Well, that’s it, everybody. We combed four theme parks, two water parks, and Disney Springs to bring you the must-do Disney attractions and entertainment at Walt Disney World that you, well, must do! Thanks for watching Must-Do Disney, everyone. I’ll see you later, and have a great time doin’!

(Credits play.)

Separate bus transportation is provided to Disney’s Animal Kingdom and Disney’s Hollywood Studios. If you need additional assistance, a host or hostess will be happy to help you. This monorail will be returning to the Magic Kingdom.

Ladies and gentlemen, if you’re standing, please hold on to the handrails and stay clear of the doors until the monorail stops completely and the doors open. If this concludes your visit to the Walt Disney World Resort, we hope you’ve had a wonderful time and will return home safely.

This is the Transportation and Ticket Center. Thank you for traveling with us.

Ladies and gentlemen, please collect your belongings, watch your head and step as you exit, and take small children by the hand. Thank you.

(Guests exit at the Transportation and Ticket Center.)

(Safety announcement heard when monorail stops unexpectedly.)

Ladies and gentlemen, we are currently holding for further traffic clearance. Please remember to stay clear of all automatic doors. If you’re standing, please continue to hold on to the silver handrails. Thank you.
