This is a complete transcript of the episode Spike's Got Talent.


(Adam & Leo are at Mission Creek High, reading a yearbook of the school when Chase walks to them)

Chase: Did you guys see the yearbook? Everybody but me got a "Most likely to...". Even Leo!

Leo: What? Let me see that. (Reads) "Most likely never to get a 'most likely.'" I'm on the board!

Chase: Well, that proves it. I'm completely invisible at this school.

Adam: Chase, that's not true. If you were invisible, I couldn't do this. (Punches Chase)

Chase: Uhh!

Bree: Chase, just because you weren't nominated doesn't mean you're invisible.

Chase: Oh, really? Yeah? What's this? "Chip Davenport". I'm a misnamed question mark!

Perry: (Walks in) Wussup, snot-buckets? Don't forget to sign up for the annual Mission Creek High talent show. Auditions are after school, and we'll be judged, by moi. Chances are that if I don't like you, you won't get through, and I don't like any of you, so good luck.

Owen: Talent shows are wrong! There are no winners or losers in creative expression.

Perry: Stick a paintbrush into it, Emo Sabe!

Owen: I refuse to stand by while that woman crushes the artistic souls of our student body. I'm gonna go sketch my feelings! (Walks away)

Bree: (Obviously in love) He is so tortured. Isn't it great?

Leo: This talent show is the perfect opportunity for me to build my fan base.

Chase: Leo, you don't have a fan base.

Leo: I know. That's why I have to build one. With magic!

Chase: Well, that is what it would take.

Leo: No. I got a magic kit and I've been practicing, specifically for the competition.

Chase: A magic kit? Isn't that kind of lame?

Leo: There is nothing lame about buying something off the Internet to make friends. (Walks over to two girls) Hello, ladies. Would you like to see a card trick? (Pulls out the card) Okay, this is your card. Hey, what's that in your hair? (Takes the card out of her hair) Bam! See? Magic.

Chase: You know what my problem is? All of my talents are bionic, and I can't reveal them at school.

Leo: Aw. Bionic people problems.

Chase: Hey–– Give me those cards. Come on, gimme. Watch this. (Walks over to two girls) Hello, ladies. Pick a card, any card. Put it back in. (Draws a cards) Is this your card? This one? This one? This one? This one?

Leo: (shows the picked card) Boom. Magic.

(Theme song)

(Next scene. A kid is at the talent show, singing "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" with water in his mouth)

Perry: (hits buzzer) Next! Don't you spit that out! You swallow that disgusting performance!

Leo: Aha!

Perry: Ugh! Dooley. (hits buzzer) Next!

Leo: Come on, give me a chance.

Perry: Ah, fine. Just get it over with.

Leo: Three solid steel rings pass right through each other to become interlocked. Locked solid, right? Hmm? (the rings disappear)

( Perry laughs. Applause)

Perry: Wow! That wasn't awful! All right, you're in. (hits bell)

Leo: Yes! For my next trick, I'll leave while I'm ahead.

(Chase comes on stage)

Perry: What's your talent? Other than having my middle school haircut.

Chase: I am the smartest man to ever live. audience scoffs and groans) Break out your online dictionaries, people-- I can spell any word.

Perry: I got one for ya: "snoozefest". Ha ha ha! (the audience boos and throws lumps to Chase) Next! (hits buzzer)

Chase: No! No! I have another talent! I can do magic!

Leo: Oh, no, you can't.

(Chase activates his molecularkinesis, levitating all lumps lying around him)

Perry: Whoa-ho! (audience cheers as Chase pivots and the lumps follow) Whoa! (laughs as Chase shoots the lumps back into the audience) Ha ha ha ha! Yeah! Wow! That was amazing! (the audience claps) Dooley, you're out. Little Dutch boy, you're in.

Leo: Great job, Chase. Hey, maybe for your next trick, you can remove this knife from my back!

(Next scene. Owen is in the living room with Bree)

Owen: I have to do something to protest Perry's talent show. Something that will take her and the entire establishment down! (sits on the couch)

Bree: (flirting) Are you thinkin' what I'm thinkin'? Let's... storm the school!

Owen: Build a sculpture!

Bree: Of course. A sculpture. We are so in sync.

Owen: A sculpture will symbolize how authority suffocates creative expression. We can put it right in front of the entrance to the school, where everyone will see it. The question is: What do we make it out of?

Bree: Uh, Ice?

Owen: No.

Bree: Clay?

Owen: Too obvious.

Bree: Plaster?

Owen: Really?

Adam: (eating pizza in the kitchen) Butter?

Owen: (gets up, points to Adam) What did you say?

Adam: Butter. Everything's better with butter. (laughs) Probably even your art.

Owen: Butter is the perfect substance. Milk is fluid, like creativity, but when you judge creativity, you beat it, and churn it, until it becomes butter clogging the arteries of expression!

Adam: (gulps) That was a lot of words.

Owen: Adam, you wanna help me make a sculpture out of butter?

Adam: (drops his pizza) I have been waiting for someone to ask me that my whole life. (rushes away with Owen)

Bree: Wait! But I-- I thought we were gonna... (door closes) do something together!

Eddy: I guess someone likes his art more than you!

Bree: Thanks, Eddy.

Eddy: And by "someone," I mean Owen. And by "you," I mean--

Bree: I get it!

(Next scene. Chase is in the lab, building a cardhouse with his molecularkinesis)

Chase: Oh, yeah! Ooh! Yeah. Who's the man? I'm the man.

Leo: (enters) Hey! (Chase's cardhouse completely collapses) You abra'd my cadabra. You hocus'd by pocus. You ali'd my kazam.

Chase: I was being booed and I panicked. What else was I supposed to do?

Leo: Suffer! You're supposed to suffer.

Chase: Leo, I finally found a way to look cool using my bionics, and people think it's magic. How could I not share my amazing gift with the world? You're welcome, world! (hand-kisses 'the world' and then walks out by swinging backwards) Magic. (leaves as Eddy appears)

Eddy: Wow! And I thought I was the biggest jerk in the room! He lapped me!

Leo: You know, if he didn't have his bionics, I would still have my place in the show.

Eddy: Yeah, if only there was something in the bottom of Davenport's desk draw that you can use to manipulate his bionics. (Leo quickly searches Donald's desk draw and takes a device) Bingo! Bionic signal interrupter!

Leo: So this thing will interrupt Chase's bionics in the middle of his act?

Eddy: You betcha! Oh, and if you flip it over, it will also shave a cat.

Owen: Bree, your brother and I are so in sync. I can't wait to show you what we've created together.

Adam: Da-ta!

Bree: I love it. You really, uh... it's almost like a-- Okay, what is that?

Owen: It's Principal Perry. She represents everything that's wrong with society. Totalitarianism and triglycerides; Perry and butter.

Adam: I rubbed a pancake on her.

Owen: Hey, you know what she needs?

Adam: Big honkin' glasses!

Owen: Yes! You get me. Come on, let's go make something.

Bree: Wait. He gets you? He's baffled by a tissue box.

Adam: How does one know when the other one's gone? It just pops right up.

Bree: That's it. Eddy, crank up the heat-- full blast.

Eddy: But if I do, it'll melt the butter sculpture, and that would be... awesome!!!

. . .

Perry: Okay, next up we have the amazing Chase, the only magician whose magic wand is bigger than he is!

( drum roll )

( upbeat techno music playing )

Chase: Thank you, thank you, ladies and gentlemen! For my first trick, I will move that chair... with my mind.

( thunder crashes )

Leo: Let's see how amazing Chase is now.

( remote control beeping )

Chase: And... hmm!

Perry: Bor-ing! Bring out the girl who looks eerily similar to a giraffe!

Chase: I don't know what happened!

Perry: I do: You stink. Get off the stage before you incur the wrath of my rotten tomatoes.

( all boo )

Chase: No, no, no, no! Please! I can do it! I really can.

( grunting )

( all laughing )

Perry: (snickering) This is awful!

( distorted, slow-motion laughter )

( laughter continues )

( beeping, whirring )

Spike: (distorted) Hey!!! You want to see me move that chair with my head?

Leo: I hope he's doing an impression, 'cause that voice sounds an awful lot like Spike.

(Spike takes the chair and breaks it on his head, then he roars and drops the pieces)

Perry: Wow! Ha ha ha ha ha!

(audience claps)

Leo: Yep, that's Spike.


Perry: (enters the stage with Leo & Spike) Well, there's a fine line between entertaining and disturbing and... I think we've crossed it. So let's take a brief intermission.

(Spike growls)

Leo: Hi. Um, Spike, I was wondering if you could chill out and let weak little Chase pop back out before... Principal Perry--

Spike: I don't want to chill out! I want to rip out someone's spine and use it as a pogo stick!

Leo: Or, we could picture a nice, tranquil forest filled with leaping gazelles, while you... have a nice cup of soothing tea.

(Spike takes a bite from the tea cup and spits out the pieces)

Spike: Tasty!

(Commando App deactivates)

Chase: Leo, what just happened?

Leo: I... might have disabled your molecularkinesis, but I only did it because you cheated first, so there, we're even. More tea?

Chase: Leo, you made me nervous and triggered my Commando App. You turned me into Spike!

Leo: Yeah, well, now you're back to good ol' nerdy Chase. So let this be a lesson: No one steals from the magic man.

(Commando App reactivates)

Spike: (distorted) What'd you say to me, fruit fly?! (growls)

Leo: (quavery) Hey... look, everybody. Spike's back.

(Next scene. Adam & Owen enter with a huge pair of glasses, only to find their butter sculpture completely molten)

Adam: (gasps) Butter Perry escaped! You check the bus station, I'll check the pancake house!

Bree: (enters. Mock innocent) Oh no. What happened?

Owen: I don't get it. Butter doesn't melt at room temperature. And we can't rebuild it in time for the talent show.

Bree: Hmm. Tragic. Oh well, let's go see a movie. Come on. (pulls Owen with her to the door)

Eddy: Slow your roll, shirley! Check out this movie! (replays a scene of Bree ordering Eddy to crank up the heat full blast)

Bree: On Eddy's monitor) Eddy, crank up the heat-- full blast.

Owen: Bree, how could you?

Bree: I'm sorry, but you were spending so much time with Adam, I just got jealous.

Owen: So you purposely sabotaged me? I'm gonna go sketch my disappointment. (exits)

Adam: When he's done, I'm hanging it up on the fridge.

. . .

( Spike growling, roaring )

Spike: Goody. I love it when all the easy targets are gathered in one place.

Leo: There you are. I hope this signal interrupter works on Spike, too.

( beeping, whirring )

( roaring )

Spike: Twirl that, princess!

Leo: Come on, you piece of junk!

( roaring )

Leo: Aaah!!! It's like this thing is amplifying Spike's bionic aggression instead of interrupting-- Oh.

( roaring )

Leo: Save a cup, save the planet!

. . .

Bree: Owen's not returning my calls. How am I gonna make this up to him?

Adam: Look, the damage is done. Bree. Unless you have 28 pounds of delicious popcorn to soak up his butter art.

Bree: Yes!

Adam: You do?

Bree: No. I mean, what if we build Owen a new protest statue?

Adam: How?

( whooshing )

Bree: With 28 pounds of popcorn.

Adam: Sweet!

Bree: But how are we ever gonna pop it all before the talent show ends?

Adam: Oh, I got this.

( popcorn popping )

Bree: That'll work.

. . .

Owen: Hey, Bree. This better be important. I was in the middle of doodling my pain away.

Bree: Owen, I know you're mad at me, but hopefully this gigantic waste of popcorn makes it up to you. Adam! Stop licking Principal Perry!

Adam: I can't help it! She's salty.

Bree: I'm really sorry that I melted your butter sculpture.

Owen: Her eyes! They're so beautiful! It's like they're staring deep into my soul.

Adam: They're cookies.

Owen: I was so upset. But... this gesture is making my heart melt like...

Adam: Butter?

Bree & Owen: No!

. . .

( roaring )

( crashing )

Spike: That's what I call a slam punk!

( crashing continues )

Leo: Nice Spike. Good Spike. Sit! Spike, sit!

( roars )

Leo: Oh, hey. Did I mention Spike's back?

Perry: Oh! I smell butter! Who is responsible for this?

Owen: I am!

Perry: I love it! The talent show is over! We have a winner!

Owen: No!!!

( roaring )

Perry: No!!! How dare you destroy the Mona Lisa that was my popcorn bust?!

( spits )

Spike: What are you gonna do about it, shoulder pads?

Perry: Easy, butch. Your mouth is writin' a check that you can't cash.

Spike: Oh, yeah? Well, Santa called-- he wants to know if you'll be making toys this year!

Perry: (baby talk) Why bother makin' a dolly when I have my own right here?

Spike: Ooh! That's a funny joke. Where'd you get it from, your cat's litter box?

Perry: Nobody talks about my cats! You're goin' down! Back when I was in the Tijuana Ladies Wrestling League, they called me La Rosa Bonita!

( roars )

Perry: And watch out, because I have... thorns!

Spike: All right, kitty cat! Ready to tango?

Perry: Must... protect... my... students! Prepare to be subdued!

( both grunting )

Perry: Come on. Come here.

( Spike growling )

Perry: Waaa! Come on. Come on. Come on.

( onlookers gasp )

Adam: Get him, Perry!

Perry: Whoa...!

Spike: Ha ha ha ha!

Perry: Whoa!!!

Leo: Ah, here it comes... here it comes...

Perry: Aah!

Spike: Whoa!

( all groan )

Perry: Give it to me. Give it to me.

Adam: Whoo!

( applause )

Perry: Come on. Come on.

( whooshing )

Perry: Viva la Perry!!! Waaaaa!!!

Adam: Ohhh!!!

( grunting )

Perry: Ha!!!

Chase: Uhhh!!!

Perry: La Rosa Bonita! Aaah!

Chase: Why am I being smothered by a female Mexican wrestler in a pantsuit?!

Leo: I'll fill ya in later.

. . .

( mock whimpering )

( all laugh )

Chase: (sarcastic) Ha ha.

Leo: Well, Chase, you finally got what you wanted. You are no longer invisible at this school. You'll forever be known as the kid who got pinned by Principal Perry.

Chase: Thank you, Leo.

Leo: Pinned like the butterfly on the science teacher's wall.

Chase: Gotcha, Leo.

Leo: Ya know, if being pinned was a talent, you would have won.

( roars )

( screams )

Leo: Spike! Spike!

Chase: Ahh. That little trick is gonna come in handy.
