N/A - Be-Knighted

MAN: The Forever Knights have existed single goal.
And tonight we stand on the brink of triumph! [all cheering ] It all must fall on you.
Are you ready, Connor? I am.
Throughout our history, we've bought, borrowed, or stolen the most powerful weapons available on Earth and beyond that thus far none has worked.
This one, we believe, is different.
You are the bravest of us all, Connor.
You've earned the right to wield this.
[ chains ratcheting ] [ rumbling ] Aim for the heart and hold the beam steady.
I'll hold it steady, but how can I expect the same of the beast? It's chained.
Don't worry.
[doors close] [ chain rattles ] [growls ] [ pounding on door] [growling ] I'll destroy you.
Whatever the sacrifice, whatever the cost, I will destroy you.
[grunting] BEN: I mean, it's great to have the Omnitrix and all but there might come a time when it's not enough.
Got to expand my repertoire.
Your repertoire? Yeah.
Hyah! That's savate, and this is karate! I know, Ben.
I taught it to you.
Hyah! Yeah? Well, here's some good old Marquess of Queensbury boxing.
[grunts ] Good idea -- head butt! GWEN: Not that way.
The other way.
What other way? Tell me you're kidding.
[door opens ] KEVIN: Okay, fun's over.
I just set up a meeting for Ben.
With who? It's important.
Come on.
With who, Kevin? Um The Forever Knights.
No way! Are you crazy?! Hold it, hold it.
They're in trouble.
They need help.
So? They're not exactly friends of ours.
Right, and that means they wouldn't be reaching out unless they had a really good reason.
Aren't you curious to find out what? Wait a minute.
They paid you to come here and bring Ben to them, didn't they? [scoffs ] N-- that hurts.
Don't you think I ever do anything out of the goodness of my heart? How much? I cut them a deal.
Traded them for some alien tech.
[sighs ] Kevin He's got a point, though.
If the Knights are desperate enough to ask me for help, we should at least hear what they have to say.
That's the most ridiculous story I've ever heard! SQUIRE: No, it's all true.
Everyone thinks dragons are creatures of myth, fiction.
But they're real, Ben.
At least one wasand is.
Did you say, "is"? knights battled a giant fire-breathing beast.
They were the king's greatest warriors, but even they couldn't finish it off.
All they could do was trap it and then build a stone fortress around it.
Years went by.
Dozens of farfetched dragon legends sprang up.
But all the while, the knights were passing the custody of the real beast down from father to son to grandson.
Unfortunately, the dragon was invulnerable to every new weapon we tried on it.
The latest was an alien quantum-disassembler cannon.
We had high hopes for it, and still do, butwell, the dragon escaped.
Ben, we need you to help us.
You're saying you want me to be a part of all this -- be a knight? Yes, Ben.
Join us in our most noble of causes.
Do I get some of that cool armor? What is with you? What do you mean? You see a bunch of old swords and axes and you're ready to jump in and start playing knight in shining armor? There's still a lot we don't know.
Like? Like if there even is a dragon.
I mean, all they've got for proof are these things.
[tears ] [gasps ] Sorry.
CONNOR: There most assuredly is a dragon.
You have my word.
Ben, Kevin, Gwen, this is Connor, the greatest of all the Forever Knights.
BEN: At your service, or whatever you guys say.
CONNOR: What I say is, Forever Knights do not have doubts.
So if you or your friends have them, you do not belong with us.
You're the ones asking for help.
You insolent! The dragon will fall by my hand.
SQUIRE: But, sir You taint the purity of our order by bringing in this -- this This what? My lord, it's the only way.
[alarm blaring ] We've been monitoring the military frequencies.
MAN: Target at 3:00.
Going to have visual contact in a second or two.
[screeching ] Can you see?! It's some kind of monster! Target locked.
Missiles away! [engines roaring ] [ rapid gunfire] BEN: You sure you don't want my help? [vehicles approaching ] [growls ] Remember, all you need to do is stop it.
Connor will take care of the rest.
Got it.
What's it gonna be this time -- Humongousaur? Naw, Humongo's too close to what I'll be fighting.
Got to figure that thing's had a lot more experience being a dragon than I have.
Thinking it through, huh? [ beeps ] Chromastone! [growls ] [screeching ] Weird, but for a second there, I thought you were trying to tell me something.
[growls ] Nice one, Ben! Indeed.
[ beeping ] Ben's too close to the dragon.
The Knights exist for one purpose and one purpose alone.
And you know exactly what it is, so are you or are you not one of us? [screeching ] [grunts ] Aaah! [screeches ] [ beeps ] [ coughing ] BEN: We need to have a little talk.
You used me.
It wasn't personal.
But if you or your friends get in my way again, it will become so.
[ beeps ] You know where the dragon's headed, don't you?! [laughs ] If you're trying to scare us, it's going to take a lot more than a stripling with a fancy wristwatch, right? Absolutely! We've taken a sacred oath! [growling ] the 12 and 408 freeways meet.
What? It's where the dragon's going.
Squire! The Knights found a huge relic the same time they caught the dragon.
They didn't know what it was or what it did, so they hid it for safekeeping.
They sent the relic to our lab to see if it had any technology they could use against the dragon.
When it flew across the Atlantic, we figured it was connected to the relic somehow.
And that's all I know, I swear! That's fine, really.
[engine revs, tires screech ] Wait, I almost forgot -- they think the relic's alien, but they haven't figured out what it does yet! Pathetic.
I'm telling you, when it roared, there was a pattern.
And something else -- that wasn't fire coming out of its mouth.
It was more like a laser.
So, you're saying the dragon was trying to talk to you? No way.
Hey, you talk, sort of.
Hey! See? Kevin, I heard it, too.
See what happens when you listen, Ben, and think? Okay, even if it was talking, what would it be saying -- "I'm gonna chew you like bubble gum?" I've got a theory.
Pull over.
I knew I'd seen one of these before.
What is it? Galvin universal translator -- translates any language into any other in real time.
Pretty common alien tech.
The dragon had something like this near its throat, but it looked busted.
Then all we have to do is replace the broken one with this one.
That's all, huh? [engine turns off] [ beeps ] Spidermonkey! [ chattering ] Ben, wait for us! [glass shattering ] [screeches ] [screeching ] [growls ] Whoa, whoa, whoa! Easy does it.
I'm trying to help.
[ chattering ] [grunts ] [ beeps ] [ chatters ] [gruffly] Leave me alone! Leave me alone! You can talk.
Of course I can talk.
Why wouldn't I be able to talk?! Well, I-I thought you were a, um A what? A-a monster.
Yeah? Well, I thought you were a monkey.
Oh, I don't really look like this.
[ beeps ] See? Sorry, all mammals look alike to me.
It's not just you.
Ben does sort of favor a monkey.
Smells like one, too.
Okay, enough with that.
What do you want? I want my ship back.
My tracking signal says it's here.
Ship? That must be the relic the Knights have been talking about.
The Knights? Are you one of the Knights? No, but they asked me to help catch you back when I thought you were a monster.
The Knights are the monsters.
They attacked me for no reason right after I landed, broke my translator box, then locked me up in that dungeon! You sure you're not one of them? Me? No way.
I wouldn't be caught dead in that stupid armor.
Okay, then.
GWEN: Wait! You're an alien, right? What were you doing here? I was making an interstellar map.
Why else would anyone come to this insignificant rock? You're a mapmaker? And a darn good one, too.
Now if you'll excuse me, I've got business.
Finding your ship and then heading home, right? Oh, I'll be heading home, all right -- just as soon as there's not a single one of those Forever Knights left alive.
[growls ] His translator box must be broken again.
Sorry, Gwen.
Sometimes a roar is a roar.
Look, if you think about it, this whole thing is really just a great big misunderstanding.
Misunderstanding?! Uh, okay, maybe "misunderstanding's" a little too weak.
Forever Knights stole from me! Well, how long is that in dragon years? It's a long time to be away from your home, your family.
The baby's probably flying by now.
You know, we really don't owe this mapmaker anything, and we sure don't owe the Knights much, either.
What are you getting at? If we just get it out of here right now, who'd say anything? BEN: I would.
[tires squeal ] [screeches ] You two go out there and tell him this is all a big mis-- uh, tragedy.
I'll work on the dragon.
[ beeps ] - Hold it! Don't shoot! - You don't understand! Trying to save the beast again, are you? It's really an alien.
It just wants to go home.
No! It's not going to escape us -- not this time.
DRAGON: Ahh, never looked better.
[whirring ] Weapons? Didn't think I'd need them when I landed -- too trusting.
[ chuckles ] Rather, I used to be.
You don't have to do this.
I know, but I want to.
You would, too.
You're probably right, but I'm just a dumb kid.
Yes, you are.
So do yourself a favor -- stay out of my way.
All he was doing was making a map.
He wasn't gonna hurt anybody.
He didn't even mean to scare anyone.
The whole thing is just kind of ridiculous, isn't it? Ridiculous? I took an oath passed down through 50 generations.
We all did.
Yeah, but We live to destroy that dragon, and we will do it right here before this day is over! I don't think you've been listening to me.
I am trying to tell you Heads up! [grunts ] [grunts ] Uh, time-out? [grunts ] [ ringing ] [weakly] No.
Can't convince you, huh? I've been waiting 1,000 years for this, so, no, you can't convince me.
What do you think you're doing? Stopping you.
[laughs ] Don't laugh.
I could turn into Humongousaur again if I wanted to, or maybe Chromastone or Spidermonkey.
But I'm not going to.
Well, that just makes it easier for me.
You're not a monster.
You're a mapmaker.
Aaah! Hold it! Let him go.
You first.
Don't do it, Gwen.
[groans ] [engine roaring ] How did you do it? Huh? You know, get the dragon to go.
I just -- oh, I used my head.
Head butt, huh? And old one, but it always works.
You're really coming along, kid.
Thanks, Kevin.
Glad you understand.
CONNOR: And then the beast flew off into the stars, headed for home.
[sighs ] I have failed.
Where are you going, Connor? Don't know.
In my entire life, I've never given a moment's thought to what I would do once this was over.
You think it's over? The dragon's gone, Patrick.
We failed, and now there's no reason for us to exist.
You, me, the Forever Knights -- all pointless now.
Pointless? [ chuckles ] Hardly.
Now we know that somewhere in the stars there's not one dragon but an entire planet of them.
How soon before more of the beasts arrive here wanting revenge? They could be making their plans even as we speak.
No, Connor.
The world needs the Forever Knights now more than ever.
We must always stand ready to fight the dragons [all cheering ] And the despicable traitors who helped them.
So say I! ALL: So say we all! Hooray!
