[ crickets chirping ] [Squish! Squish! Squish! ] [whoosh ] [ creaking ] [straining ] [Squish! Squish! Squish! ] [ beeping ] [engine turns over] [engine revving ] [ revving intensifies ] [tires screech ] Hey! Where are you going with my -- [gasps ] [engine revving ] [tires screech ] Aah! [grunting ] [applause] [grunts ] See? She waved.
She likes you.
You should definitely ask her out.
No way.
What if she finds out about the Omnitrix? I don't want her to think I'm weird.
Ben, you are weird, but you're also funny and sensitive and well-mannered unlike some people I know.
[snoring ] [grunts ] [grunts ] [ cheers and applause] What'd I miss? She won.
Go ahead, Ben.
Now's your chance.
Uh, I'm not sure that's -- Aah! Whoa! Ben? Julie.
Uh, you know my cousin Gwen? Hi.
Uh, Ben Right.
Way to go.
Great gamematch setwhatever.
Well, see ya.
Back so soon? [laughing ] Yeah.
So, um, Julie, uh, I was wondering if you'd like to -- I don't know -- get together sometime.
When? She said, "when.
" That's like a yes, only more specific.
Now what? You say, "how about tonight?" Tonight? [ clears throat ] I mean, we could go to the Pier Tonight.
Well, guess I'll hit the showers.
Me too.
I mean, uh Ugh.
He'll come by around 7:00.
Sometimes I wonder how the species survives.
Yeah, I, uh, found that stolen truck.
No sign of whoever took it.
[Squish! Squish! Squish! ] [ beeping ] What do you mean he says it drove away by itself? That just doesn't happen.
[siren wailing ] Much.
My hair looks stupid, my shirt is wrinkled, and I have a zit the size of Kansas.
Yeah, that's one big zit, all right.
Aah! How did you get in here? The usual way.
Incidentally, you may want to fix that hole I punched in your back door before your mother sees it.
You couldn't knock? I sort of did.
Has anyone ever told you that you're a strange and dangerous person? Constantly.
But enough about me.
Gwen says that you need a favor.
Uh, yeah.
See, I kind of want to go to the Pier tonightwith Julie.
I bet you do.
And since I don't have a car -- Or a license.
Or a license.
I was wondering if you could give us a ride.
That's it? No jokes? No insults? No blackmail? Nope.
You're gonna wait till we're in the car, and then you're gonna make my life miserable, aren't you? KEVIN: Knob's broken.
This should be fun.
Now, remember, Benny boy, your mother and I want you home by 10:00 sharp, or you can't go to the disco.
Disco? He watches a lot of reruns.
Give him a break, Kevin.
Gosh, pumpkin, what do you mean? You know exactly what I mean.
At least when Ben likes a girl, he lets her know.
He asks her out.
Maturity -- isn't that a novel approach? Ben's got a girlfriend.
Ben's got a girlfriend.
[laughs ] [sighs ] [ brakes squeak ] [ beeping ] Listen, uh, sorry about Kevin.
Why is he so mean to you? It makes him happy.
[laughs ] You're nice to let him.
Slow night.
This place is packed on weekends.
This way, we have the place to ourselves.
Guess we do.
[ beeping ] Is that a watch? [ chuckles ] Yeah.
Really have to get it fixed.
You like cotton candy? Good.
You stay here.
I'll be back.
Everything's going great, then this freaks out on me.
[Squish! Squish! Squish! ] [ beeping stops ] [sighs ] That's more like it.
[screaming ] [zapping ] That can't be good.
[ panting ] [gasps ] Watch it! Sorry.
[engine revving ] Hey! [ Rattle! Rattle! ] What is this? "When carnival rides attack"? [zapping ] [sonar pinging ] [ beeping ] Shh.
[tires squeal ] Aah! [grunts ] [tires squeal ] Okay.
I am so over this.
[tires screech ] Hey, Bumpo, Bumpo, andale.
[tires squeal ] I hope there's a simple explanation for this, but I kind of doubt it.
Kid, you and me got a date with my insurance adjustor.
Date? Aah! Look, here's my allowance.
It's all I've got.
And then he ran off, and I've been -- Wait.
He's coming back.
You would not believe the line.
Ben, there's nobody here.
Um, except at the concession stand, where they're doing huge business.
I thought you'd stood me up.
Julie, I'd never, ever do that to you.
Look, I got pink and blue.
Your pick.
[laughs ] [ crickets chirping ] [groaning ] [ motor whirring ] This looks fun.
Especially if you don't mind wrenching G-forces and waves of nausea.
[ chuckles ] Are you saying you don't want to ride it? No.
I'm saying it's a good thing I didn't get us the cheeseburgers.
[zapping ] Uh-oh.
You okay? Me? Fine.
No problem.
Listen, maybe we should skip this one.
Ben, are you hiding something? No.
No secrets here.
My life's an open book.
Just your basic regular guy.
Here we go again.
This way.
[screams ] You stay here for a minute.
What are you gonna do? Uh, bathroom? [ beeping ] [engine revving ] This looks like a job for Jetray.
Aah! [ beeping ] [grunts ] I'm not Jetray.
I'm a seafood platter.
And apparently one possessed of a highly advanced intellect.
Ergo, perhaps I should assign this new life-form a more apropos nom de guerre.
What say Brainstorm! [ beeping ] Now I am most decidedly miffed.
[zapping ] What the deuce? [gasps ] Aah! [ beeping ] [zapping ] And good riddance, might I say.
[door locks ] [ beeping ] [door unlocks ] Hey.
Did I miss anything? What? Wait, you didn't see that? See what? That.
Aah! [ beeping ] Ben! Aah! Ben! Ben! Julie! No! This is just not my night.
[sighs ] [gasps ] [ creaking ] None of this makes sense.
Why am I being attacked by carnival rides? And why did it grab Julie? [tires screeching ] Put me down! Can't hit him with a neuroshock.
I might hurt Julie.
So I'll try the indirect approach.
[zapping ] Aah! [grunts ] JULIE: Let me go! Let me go! Gotcha.
What have you done with Julie? I'm here.
And how do you know my name? Julie, don't be scared.
It's me.
It's Ben.
You're a monster? Uh, No.
Well, uh, yes.
Actually, I'm like 10 monsters.
[ beeping ] Cool? [ motor whirring ] Ship, ship, ship.
Excuse me.
We're talking here.
Ben, I think it's trying to tell you something.
Ship! Hey.
Ship, ship.
You brought us out here to find that spaceship, right? [ beeping ] Wait.
I've seen that thing before.
You have? Kind of.
I used to be able to turn into one of those.
Called myself Upgrade.
[groaning ] Well, whatever it is, it's hurt.
Get any closer to that energy field, and it'll fry you like a potato.
What's that say? Sorry.
I don't read alien.
[ purring ] You're what's behind all this? Ship? Okay.
Now I know it's trying to tell you something.
[ beeping ] It's a countdown.
That thing's gonna explode.
[ beeping ] Humongousaur! [grunts ] [ rumbling ] Um, explosion's over.
[grunts ] There you go.
Well, as I was saying, before I lost consciousness, I extruded this Symbiote -- the one you call Ship.
Thank you.
And sent it off to find the nearest Plumber.
Because your sink was clogged? No.
Plumbers are intergalactic police officers.
I'll explain later.
And that's why he came after me? Well, of course.
Didn't you receive his distress signal? You mean, the beeping.
Yes, that beeping.
Don't you know how that works? Not so much.
Really? Aren't you a Plumber? I thought you were.
[sighs ] I could spend the rest of my life here.
Look, is there anyone else I can talk with? Not really.
That's why Ship tried to get your attention.
[ beeping ] Get my attention? He wrecked the Pier.
He kidnapped you.
Well, I needed help.
That's pretty obvious.
[sighs ] And you wonder why most aliens only communicate with your livestock.
[ inhales, exhales deeply] Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to repair my warp drive.
Come on, now.
Be nice.
After all, you guys are practically related.
There anything we can do to help? Well, uh, I suppose.
Very well.
Now it's on tight.
I, uh -- I guess this is probably the worst date you've ever had, huh? No, not the worst, just different.
And being different is fine.
[engine revving ] Right.
Well, well done.
Off I go.
What about this thing? Doesn't he blorp back into your body or something? "Blorp.
" That's not how it works.
Besides, you and he have had such a lovely bonding experience.
He's yours now.
He's cute.
Are you gonna keep him? [ purring ] [ panting ] [groans ] Actually, this part of the date I'm not enjoying.
Sorry I can't fly us home.
But after so many quick changes, the Omnitrix shut down to recharge.
Well, it doesn't matter.
We're both gonna get grounded for a month after being out so late.
Here comes somebody.
[whistles ] Wait! [ buzzing ] Well, so much for bonding.
