Astrid and Lilly Save the World (2022) s01e05 Episode Script


Previously on "Astrid and Lilly Save The World" Back up! Everywhere I go today, there's people dancing.
It's like they're not even there mentally.
Somebody named Astrid has a date tonight.
Ooh, you got matching tattoos.
Lab partner bonding thing? It's contagious? I haven't seen you audition before.
Hey, have you seen Tate? I heard what your dad said.
That sucks.
I'm just messing with ya.
No! No Damn it, Valerie! You scared the shitballs out of us! We thought somebody was trying to kill you.
Well, someone might as well because my career? It's over! What? No! It's not over.
Sure, you didn't get the part you wanted, but at least you got crocodile? Romeo & Juliet doesn't even have a crocodile! Hey! Eggs got Romeo.
Good for him.
Ah, look, Candace got Juliet.
Who the hell cares? Hey, hot stuff.
Can I get a piece of that? Wow, how about, "Hey, Candace, congratulations on getting the lead in the school play"? You actually got the lead? How was I supposed to know? Maybe if you cared about something other than soccer? Like, I don't know, me? Tate Hudson, please report to the soccer field.
Gotta go.
I'll see you at the scrimmage? Hey! Uh Heard you snagged Juliet.
It's a little intimidating, to be honest.
Lotta lines.
Ah, you'll be awesome.
Just think of all the Bible verses you've memorized.
Um Maybe you can help me run lines? Like, today after school? Wouldn't you rather practice with Tate? I don't think he'd get it.
Or care.
Do you want to meet at my place? Yeah, all right.
Sounds good.
See ya.
Hey, so, did you, uh, clock any of those, like, weird tattoos Why were you talking to Candace? Oh, she, um Oh! Sparrow! Oh! What's it say? The other night was killer.
- Hang again soon? - Ah Maybe meet Philbert? Oh, my gosh! Okay, so what's date two? Bowling? Drive-in? Herpetarium? I'm not sure how this stuff works.
I don't know.
- Don't want to seem too eager.
- Hm.
Should probs keep him guessing.
Double, double, toil and trouble.
Fire burn, and cauldron bubble.
It wasn't me.
It wasn't me! It wa Well, I, um I'm sure, by now, you've all heard the rumors.
I will not be playing Pine Academy's - Juliet.
- Okay.
Instead, I will be playing the supporting role of Of who? The supporting role of Nobody? No, I can't, I'm sorry! I'm so There's a school play? Dad, why did you bring me out here? I invited a soccer scout from my alma mater to come watch the scrimmage tonight.
I took the day off work so we can make sure you're ready.
We're gonna practice all day.
Dad, do I really have to do this? I already practiced a ton with Coach and I kinda got some stuff going on right now.
Nothing that can't wait 'til after the game.
Soccer is the only important thing you've got going on, Tate.
What the hell happened back there? I'm not totally sure.
I mean, Val is a drama kid.
Could have been her thespian tendencies at play? Yeah, it checks out.
Oh, my God! Did Sparrow get you that? Oh, that's totally adorbs! That's totally not adorbs? It just freaks me out.
Am I supposed to get him a gift? What if I get the wrong thing? Mm, I don't know.
Actually, I gotta go.
I have to grab a script for the school play.
I thought you said you were doing set dec? I am.
Um but I just want to see how badly Michelle butchered the script.
If anybody could make Shakespeare harder to understand, it's her.
Mm, yes.
How's tonight? Hmm Happy birthday.
What the? Astrid.
Astrid! Astrid! Astrid! Oh! Lilly! You'll never believe what just happened.
You found a creepy-ass Jack-in-the-box and you couldn't stop yourself from opening it and then it sent you to a weird and scary place and? Yeah.
Brutus? Brutus.
- Brutus! - Brutus, where are you? Brutus, it's an emergency! Geez, get a bed already.
Brutus? Hey! Hey, we need to talk to you.
We just saw these creepy Jack-in-the-boxes.
What's in the box? That's from "Seven.
" I watched a lot of movies and you were right: the '90s were the best! What do you think was in that box? Okay, Brutus, focus! What the hell is going on? Those things transported us to another world, or some shit! Well, the good news is it's the monster you need for the orb.
The bad news is it's a Memoragatu.
Uh, it's Uh Oh! Ah-ha! Memoragatu: a monster that, once it touches you, forces you to relive your worst memory.
The flashbacks will happen more and more frequently until you get stuck in a loop, at which point the monster will trap you in your own box so you can feed off your trauma forever.
All that from a stupid Jack-in-the-box? Hey, even in my dimension that stuff is scary AF.
Oh, and also you need to recover its creepy eye, the A-borg, for the orb.
You've been crying.
Oh, my God! Did the monster get you, too? Yes.
But it's fine because it affects monsters differently, okay? I'm not being forced to look at my worst memory of all! Only the best! See? Tears of joy! Well, happy memories or not, we need to whoop this thing's ass before it traps us all forever! Right, so how do we find it? The toy boxes disappeared.
Well, this is where it gets tricky.
In order to defeat the Memoragatu, you have to beat it twice: once in your memory and once in the real world.
Mm, there was no monster in my memory.
What about you, Astrid? No.
No monster.
Also kids at school have been getting this weird symbol as a tattoo.
At first we thought it was some new, trendy bullshit, but it keeps showing up.
Do you think it's a clue? It's cool! But it doesn't look familiar to me.
Wait! Are tattoos cool? Should I get a tattoo? Okay, so now we know what we're dealing with.
Wanna meet up at HQ after school to figure out how to beat this thing? And figure out WTF is up with those weird tattoos? Um, actually I can't after school today.
Why not? Okay, I can't after school today - Um-hm? - Because I promised Candace I'd help her run lines.
Candace? Why the hell would you help Cand Oh, my God.
That's why you needed the scripts.
Good luck.
Not like Christine is gonna welcome you into her house with open arms.
Oh, my God.
You're gonna be practicing at headquarters? Look, Astrid, I'm sorry Hey, no, what the hell, Lilly? You know my mom barely lets me have my own room and now you're taking goddamn Candace to HQ? - Look I promised I'd help her.
- Oh, my God.
And I'll hide all of our Pudge Patrol stuff! Maybe after school, you can come by and you can grab some of the stuff and start working on the case alone? Oh, my God! No! Hell, no! If this monster is such a low priority for you, it can wait until after you and Princess Candy Turd are done.
Call me when you remember she's a human nightmare.
Can't make it tonight.
Break a leg.
Why the hell would she say that? Fu Ow! Ah, come on! Whatever! You don't deserve that trophy.
You missed the penalty kick.
You call that playing soccer? You embarrass me.
You suck, Hudson! You embarrass me.
What just happened? Dad, I think I hurt my foot.
You okay? Yeah, I guess.
Okay, good.
This is the big one.
Don't screw it up.
Powell! Oh! No, no, no.
It's Ms.
Powell since my-my husband passed.
Ah, right.
So sorry about that.
Yeah, yeah, it's hard being a widow.
Harder than being married? Amen! Oh, well, I imagine being divorced is no picnic either.
Are you staying to watch the game? No.
No, unfortunately, I'm just here to pick up some more kids for youth group.
Just sorry you and Candace won't be joining us for Tate's big game.
Candace isn't here? If I profane with my unworthiest hand This holy shrine, The gentle sin is this: My lips, two blushing blokes, readily stand To smooth that rough touch with a tender kiss.
Good mate, you do wrong your hand too much.
Oh, no! I know, I know.
I need to work on my accent.
No, no, no, it's, um Yeah, it's pretty bad.
Uh speaking of accents, do you remember when we were little and we used to act out those terrible sketches and force your little sister to be our audience? Yeah, I'm pretty sure that's why she hates me now.
I have to get this.
She'll just keep on calling.
No problem.
- Hi, Mom.
- Sweetie are you okay? I heard you had a fight with Tate.
I'm fine.
He's just being dumb.
Where are you? I'll come pick you up for youth group.
I'm, uh, I I'm-I'm at the mall.
You know, just-just blowing off some steam.
Okay, just don't blow too hard! Why don't we just lose the accent for now and just work on the lines? Sure.
Good bloke, you do wrong your hand too much.
Such mannerly devotion shows in this For saints have hands, and mates' hands do touch.
And palm to palm is holy palmers' kiss.
Lilly? Happy Birthday.
What scene is that? Lilly! What? Sorry.
Uh, nothing.
Christine just called, and said there was a youth group meeting tonight.
So? So, you were supposed to be there! Well, I'm going on a date with a boy from Sin-Away Camp.
Does that count? I wish you would just give it a chance, Astrid.
It could help you.
And Christine is a friend.
What the hell do you and Christine have in common? Language! And plenty of things.
For starters, we're both Enormous pains in my ass.
Astrid, why are you being so difficult? Astrid, I'm talking to you! Mom, I need it.
What? But I need it.
I'm not dealing with this.
Damn right you need it.
You need your hearing checked.
I need it.
Come on, guys! Walk like you mean it! Come on! We mustn't keep him waiting.
Hello, partner.
New recruits.
They'll do but I need more.
Hi! Michelle? Y-yes, it's Christine Powell.
I'm volunteering as a chaperone for the dance.
What are we building? It's called a Master Orb.
The only one of its kind.
Step forward.
It's going to open all of the dimensions for me, just like I've always wanted.
And deserved.
Cool, ancient one.
You call that an elastico? Come on, Tate, step it up! What the? You call that playing soccer? You embarrass me! We're gonna practice all night 'til you learn how not to screw up.
Double, double, toil and trouble.
Uh! Double, double, toil and trouble.
Fire burn and cauldron bubble! Scale of dragon, tooth of wolf! Witches' mummy, maw and It wasn't me.
It wasn't me! It wa It wasn't me! Double, double, toil and trouble.
It wasn't me.
No! No! No! No! Brutus! No! No, oh, oh, oh, oh! No! Brutus! - Brutus, wake up! - No! No? What do you mean, no? Get up! No.
No! Astrid! Who let you in? Damn, girl, you look good! I was supposed to go on a date with Sparrow Just one problem.
I keep getting sucked into this stupid monster's stupid memory world! Okay.
What do you want to do? You want to run some drills, or something? No! I wanna kick its ass and be done with it! - Right.
- I've had enough.
Oh, you and me both, girl.
I thought you said the monster makes you relive a happy memory.
I did.
I I did.
And I want to beat it for you guys, obviously.
Okay, great.
Let's go do it, then.
Ah, not so fast.
Ah, first of all, I refuse to ruin your date outfit because that is Mm! And, secondly, it's not that simple, kiddo.
Remember what I told you about the Memoragatu? In order to defeat it in the real world you first have to defeat it in your memory.
That's just stupid! There is no monster in my memory! I don't know what to tell you.
This is going to be our greatest battle yet.
If you want to take it on, you're gonna need Lilly.
Where is Lilly? Lilly? Are you okay? Oh, God.
Happy birthday! You're not invited to my party anymore.
Actually, I don't want to be friends at all anymore.
You just don't fit in.
Candace, come open your gifts.
Lilly! Hey.
Where'd you go there? Uh, I must have fallen asleep with my eyes open.
That's a glowing review.
I know my accent needs work but you don't have to be mean about it.
- That's not what I meant.
- Hey! You two have been at it a long time.
You must be hungry.
There you go, babe.
Guess your parents don't like me very much.
I mean can you blame them? What the hell was that?! I I just lost focus for a second.
I told you, I got a lot on my mind.
Like what? Nothing is more important than you nailing this! I'll see you back out there.
Focused, this time! Screw this.
Candace, you literally woke up one day and decided we're no longer friends.
And at your own goddamn birthday party, no less.
What are you talking about? That's-that's not what happened.
That's exactly what happened! I remember it like it was five seconds ago.
I didn't decide anything.
It was my mom.
What was your problem? Was it how I look? Was it because my moms are gay? Lilly, I I think you're so so pretty, okay? And-and I would And I would never want you to think that I have a problem with anyone being queer, you know? Actually, I Save it, Candace.
Maybe we can't be friends.
Maybe we can't.
Astrid, come on, pick up.
If you're not going to help me without Lilly, then I'm leaving 'cause I got a date.
Look, Astrid I don't think this date is such a good idea.
You know these flashbacks are going to keep getting worse and worse until you're forced to relive the memory on a loop forever.
Yeah, I already do.
What? Oh, kinky.
Stop it! This is for your own safety, in case you get pulled back into one of your memories.
Well, what happens if we get pulled into our memories at the same ti That would never happen! Happy birthday.
Mom? Where's Charlie? Happy Thanksgiving.
Happy birthday.
Happy birthday! Happy birthday.
Happy birthday! You're not invited to my party anymore.
Actually, I don't want to be friends at all anymore.
You just don't Don't? Fit in.
What the? Oh, no, it's looping again.
Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up Happy Birthday! You're not invited to my party anymore.
Actually, I don't want to be friends at all.
Astrid, where are you? No.
No, no! But, Mom, I need it.
I need it.
Astrid, what? You probably just left it at the swimming pool.
We can pick it up tomorrow.
No, Mom, I need it for school, I need it! I need it.
I can't go to school without it! Astrid, why are you being so difficult?! Helen, it's okay.
I'll go get it from the pool before it closes.
Anything for my special little girl.
Oh! It wasn't me.
It wasn't me.
You just don't fit in.
Ow! Oh, my leg.
The monster must be close.
Pull yourself together, Candace.
You have guests.
Oh, my God, concentrate, Lilly! Oh! Ow! Ow.
And go play with your little friends.
Oh, my God.
Candace was right.
It's not what happened.
Happy Birthday! You can't come to my party.
I'm not allowed to be friends with you anymore.
We would just prefer if Candace played with friends who share our values.
You and your family don't really fit in.
The monster within the memory.
Pull yourself together, Candace.
You have guests.
What the hell is wrong with you? I said stop crying! We were kids.
How could someone do that to a freaking child? Get it together and go play with your real friends.
There's nothing wrong with me, or my moms! You'll thank me when you're older.
Oh, go to hell, Christine! I'm back.
Astrid! Astrid! Astrid! Astrid, you have to wake up.
Astrid, wake up, wake up! This is all your fault! Mom I need it! I need it! I need it, I need it! Astrid, I need you! Tate? Tate Tate! Lilly, what's going on? Have you, uh, been experiencing any, like, childhood trauma lately? - Yeah, all day, actually.
- Okay.
Here's the thing: it's actually a monster that's been making everyone remember things differently and-and-and you can't escape it so you have to give Shit! So, you have to remember what really happened so you can break the cycle before she traps you forever.
You call that playing soccer? You embarrass me! You suck, Hudson! Wait Lilly was right.
There's no way my peewee teammates were that hardcore.
And there's no crowd in a locker room.
That's not what happened.
Hey, good game! Thanks.
Looks like you need some practice.
Why are you treating me like shit? Can you just be my dad for a second? Is that what you think? Listen, you're a really good soccer player and if you score those penalty kicks, well, you could be one of the great ones.
I'm sorry if I push you too hard.
The world isn't an easy place.
But that's all I want for you.
To have more chances than I started out with.
You get so hung up on me being the best that I forgot that's how you feel.
I guess I just wanted you to know me outside of soccer, too.
- What the hell? - Shit! What's the plan? I play wingback, you play striker? - What? - How can I help? Uh, distract her? - How? - Improvise! Improvise? What do you mean impro? Knock, knock.
Damn it! Oh, Astrid.
Stupid super leg.
Astrid, listen to me: I know where the monster sent you, but it's not your fault.
You have to snap out of it! It's not your fault.
I promise, it's not your fault.
Astrid! Astrid! Helen, it's okay.
I'll go get it before the pool closes.
No, Dad, don't! Anything for my special little girl.
Astrid! Astrid! Lilly? It's making you remember things wrong so you can't escape! But This is all your fault! That's not what happened.
Helen, it's okay.
I have to run to the office anyway so I'll drop by the pool before it closes.
Anything for my special little girl.
Sweetie your father He was in an accident.
It was my fault, wasn't it? Of course not.
It wasn't your fault! It wasn't my fault.
Are you back? I'm back.
Thank God! A little help here! Please tell me you guys have a secret weapon or something.
It's you! What?! Oh, we need to get its A-borg.
Its what the what? Its eye! Take her to the fence! Lilly: Oh, my God.
Ah! This is getting ridiculous.
We're going to need that orb.
I still don't really get what happened.
Um Gas leaks! Oh, yeah, uh, there's a bunch of gas leaks in one of the mines making people hallucinate all kinds of weird shit.
Yeah, of course, a-a gas leak Because that would explain what that smell is.
- Thanks.
- Yeah.
I guess we owe you? Yeah, um Could you guys walk me home? Uhh Sure.
So, who's gonna explain all this freaky monster shit? How much time do you have? Yeah.
Hey! You were right.
What happened back then wasn't okay but it also wasn't your fault.
We can still hang out if you want.
Play practice tomorrow? Thanks for walking me home first.
I mean I live, like, three blocks that way, so - Yeah.
- You're right.
Well Goodnight.
Hey, Astrid I know your memory was I don't want to talk about it.
It was right before you moved to Coppers Cove.
Mine was around the same.
Astrid I'm so sorry about what happened with your dad.
But I'm also so, so damn happy that you came into my life when you did.
I love you, you know.
I love you, too.
All right, all right.
- Bye.
- Bye.
Uh Uh Astrid? Mom! I I I've been calling you all night.
Just Don't do that again.
You know where my mind goes when I don't hear from you.
I know.
I know, I know.
I won't.
I'm sorry.
There's something else I want to say.
When we first moved here, after your dad died, church gave me a place to go.
People I could talk to.
I just want those things for you, too, so if you get them somewhere else, that's okay.
You don't have to go back.
Seriously? Wow.
You know, you scared the shitballs out of me tonight.
Mom! Language! Hope you had fun on your date.
Goodnight, Sinta.
Goodnight, Mom.
Oh, shit! Okay.
"I'm sorry I bailed on you because I was fighting monsters.
