The Enemy of My Enemy

[CREATURE CHITTERS.]
[JULIA STRAINING, GASPING.]
[CREATURE WARBLING, WHIMPERING.]
[CREATURE WHIMPERS.]
JULIA: It's okay.
They're gone.
Now let's get you, and me, out of here.
- [SIGHS.]
Finn? - Finn, where are you? Tabby, hold up there.
Hope you're not gonna blame me for this.
Well, we'll figure out whose fault it is after we find them.
First, I want you to do something for me.
Do you still have that police scanner you built? [CREATURE COOING, WHIMPERING.]
[SIGHS.]
You could help, you know? [CREATURE SIGHING, COOING.]
Huh? Finn, what do you think you're doing? Go.
Go.
Go.
You can't come with us.
[CREATURE WHIMPERING, CLICKING.]
[GROWLING.]
Great.
[COOING.]
Fine.
Finn, you can help me get the alien back in its ship, but then that's it.
You go home.
Deal? [CREATURE CHITTERING.]
JOHNNY: Julia! Finn? We better hurry.
[GASPING.]
- Anything? - Nothing.
Why would he have gone with her? Well, Finn knows what it feels like to be alone.
- Yeah.
- Let's keep at it.
Finn? JOHNNY: Julia? - Wakey, wakey, friends.
- [ELECTRONICS WHIRRING.]
We've got some work to do.
Mr.
Leopold wants us to find out why the cops are going to Malik's.
[ABIONA SINGING.]
[PHONE BEEPING.]
I'm coming.
[CONTINUES SINGING.]
[ELEPHANT TRUMPETS.]
Over here, quick.
[ELEPHANT GROANS.]
MITRA: And that's when the giant worm attacked you? Three worms.
How hard did you hit your head, Malik? Pretty bad.
But not as bad as it could have been if that thing would have gotten me.
Are you sure you didn't black out when you fell in the hole? - You calling me a liar? - Don't worry, Malik.
We'll get to the bottom of it, okay? Mind if we take a look around? Suit yourself.
MALIK: [OVER RADIO.]
Be careful.
The monster's still out there.
LOPEZ: Thanks for the heads up.
[RADIO CHIMES.]
[FAINT SNARLING.]
[ELECTRONIC WHIRRING.]
[FAINT RUMBLING.]
[CREATURE CHITTERING.]
[CREATURE WHIMPERING.]
What is it? [VOICE ECHOING.]
What's going on? [CREATURE CHITTERING.]
What is that? [EARTH RUMBLING.]
[CREATURE WARBLING.]
Lopez to dispatch.
- [CREATURE WARBLING.]
- DISPATCH: This is dispatch.
Go ahead, Officer Lopez.
Help! Help! Malik Williams is pretty banged up.
He claims he was attacked.
- DISPATCH: By what? - [CHUCKLES.]
You wouldn't believe it if I told you.
[CAR RATTLING.]
Hold on.
[STATIC ON RADIO.]
LOPEZ: Something just bumped the cruiser.
Baby needs a signal boost? Baby gets what baby wants.
DISPATCH: So, what did he say got him? LOPEZ: [SCOFFS.]
He said he was attacked by three giant worms.
That doesn't sound pleasant.
Boosting again.
Sounds like we're not the only ones dealing with aliens.
[CREATURE GROANS.]
HEWES: Help! [ELEPHANT GROANING.]
[ELEPHANT TRUMPETS.]
It's okay, Tuko.
It's just me, okay? I'm just looking for Julia and Finn.
[ELEPHANT TRUMPETS.]
[CREATURE WARBLING.]
[JULIA SPEAKING FAINTLY IN DISTANCE.]
JULIA: Sorry, we don't understand.
Didn't you get it? Sorry, I don't understand what you want me to do.
- [CREATURE CHITTERING.]
- Hands? Four hands? TABBY: [OVER RADIO.]
T-Dog to Johnny J, got a bit of a sitch over here.
- So do I.
- Well unless it's about giant worms that attack people, think mine is worse.
Way worse.
I'm not so sure.
Come to the barn.
I found Julia and Finn.
[SIGHS.]
Sorry, friends.
I have to go and talk about our feelings.
[CREATURE SIGHS, CHITTERS.]
[STRAINING.]
- MITRA: How did you get in there? - I I don't know.
I must have tripped.
You all right? You seem a bit shaken.
I'm fine.
I'm fine.
So, what do we believe happened here? Same old story.
It's getting harder for farmers to make ends meet, so they sabotage their own equipment.
Insurance money.
Sir, I have a proposal for you.
Might help you in these tough times.
ABIONA: Her heartbeat is getting faster.
- [ABIONA SCREAMS.]
- [TIRES SCREECH.]
Aah! Aah! [SCOFFS.]
Uggh! JOHNNY: So, now you're running away to space.
I don't stay where I'm not wanted.
Come on.
You know that's not what Tabby meant.
No, she's right.
I don't want her here.
- Tabby.
- What did I tell you? - [GIRLS SHOUTING.]
- Would you two stop yelling? There's no need to yell, okay? Just talk.
[ARGUMENT CONTINUES IN DISTANCE.]
[CREATURE SIGHING.]
[CREATURE CHITTERING.]
[ARGUMENT CONTINUING IN DISTANCE.]
- I don't wanna stay here! - Tabby! What? We had a pretty good thing going here till little miss miserable arrived.
My dad died! You think you're the only one that bad stuff has happened to? You have no idea how lucky you are.
Well, at least you had a dad.
Did you ever even think of asking Johnny - what he thinks of his dad? - Tabs.
Or what it was like for Finn to never even meet his dad? No.
Because all you care about is you.
Finn, Finn.
Finn, it's okay.
We're just talking.
[TUKO GROANING.]
[TRUMPETS.]
[CREATURE WARBLING, CHITTERING.]
Whoa.
Way too soon, buddy.
Tabby, it's not here to hurt us.
- How do you know? - I just know.
Mm.
Great answer.
So, what do you think it wants? I'm not sure, but I think it collects things.
The last of things, like Tuko and the creature from last night.
[TUKO TRUMPETS.]
[TUKO GROANING.]
What's wrong, Tuko? She probably doesn't want to get collected again.
[TUKO TRUMPETS.]
- [SCREAMING.]
- [MONITOR BEEPING.]
ABIONA: What's happening to you, Tuko? We're going to need you to step away from the evidence.
HEWES: It's not evidence.
It's my company's property.
We just acquired it.
- Acquired it? - HEWES: Malik has also decided to drop his police report.
Thank you, officers.
We'll take it from here.
- [TRUMPETING.]
- [TABBY SCREAMING.]
- Get it off! - JOHNNY: Tabby! - TABBY: Get it off! - What is this thing? JULIA: I think it's the last of its kind.
I don't care! Get it off me! JOHNNY: I think it wants your backpack.
- Take it off! - No way.
JOHNNY: Come on, take it off! Okay, yes way.
Yes way.
[CREATURE SNARLING.]
JULIA: Is it gone? - [CREATURE WARBLES.]
- [GIRLS GASP.]
Are you kidding me? Where do you think you're going? Going collecting.
Oh, so now you want to help the alien? No.
I want payback for destroying my transmitter.
That thing took forever to modify.
- You can't go alone, Tabby.
- I'm going with her.
- No, you're not.
- Yes, I am.
TABBY: Who said you could? JULIA: Gosh, you're such a brat.
- [GIRLS ARGUING.]
- Mr.
Leopold.
Found Julia and Finn.
You may want to get over here.
Quickly.
- Copy that.
Where did you find them? - JOHNNY: In the barn.
But wait, there's something else, okay? - [GIRLS ARGUING.]
- [TUKO TRUMPETS.]
JOHNNY: Some worm thing just attacked us.
- [TUKO GROANING.]
- Hold on, Mr.
Leopold.
Tuko's freaking out.
- [GIRLS CONTINUE ARGUING.]
- Whoa.
[JOHNNY GROANS.]
- [BOTH GASPING.]
- JULIA: There's another one! Not for long.
- [TABBY SCREAMS.]
- My walkie! [CREATURE SNARLING.]
[CREATURES CHITTERING, GROANING.]
- JOHNNY: Help! - [TUKO TRUMPETS.]
It's leaving.
TABBY: With my walkie.
What does that thing have against me? MR.
LEOPOLD: Johnny.
Johnny? TABBY: There's one walkie left.
Mr.
Leopold! Johnny Johnny, do you copy? Are you okay? Johnny Oh! [CREATURE CHITTERING, SNARLING.]
[TUKO TRUMPETS.]
Not now, Finn, okay? Take care of the alien.
Mr.
Leopold's in trouble.
[CREATURE WARBLING, CHITTERING.]
How are you doing? How are you doing? Not so good, huh? My name is Mr.
Leopold.
What's your name? Don't talk much, huh? You know, sometimes I like to draw pictures.
Yeah.
Do, uh Do you like to draw? This is the farm where I live.
This is the barn.
And this is the house over here.
And this is me.
And these two are Johnny and Tabby.
Little older than you.
They live with me on the farm.
Oh, and there's a cow too named Betty.
Except I'm not very good at drawing cows.
Don't suppose you could draw a cow for me, could you? Let her rip.
That's a great cow.
Yeah.
But I still don't know your name.
Finn.
I like that name.
What do you think about maybe coming out to visit us at the farm one day? Maybe think about coming up there to live with us too? How would that be? [CREATURE SIGHS.]
[CREATURE CHITTERING.]
Oh my.
Oh! Mr.
Leopold, take off your walkie! - Kids, get out of there! - He can't hear us.
TABBY: Let's go collecting.
- [ENERGY PULSING.]
- [CREATURE WARBLING.]
JOHNNY: What is it doing? The blasters aren't strong enough.
MR.
LEOPOLD: Get out of there! - What are you doing? - TABBY: What does that mean? We need another blaster, not a drawing, Finn.
- MR.
LEOPOLD: Hey, hey, hey! - What are you trying to tell us? MR.
LEOPOLD: Over here, wormie! JOHNNY: Is that Tuko? The elephant's feet? Hears Tuko hears the creature.
Elephants can talk through their feet, remember? From the video.
Finn, are you trying to say that Tuko can talk to the creature? - Tuko, Tuko! - Tuko! [TUKO TRUMPETING.]
Looks like she's talking to it right now.
Now what? Put these around it.
[TUKO TRUMPETS.]
[MR.
LEOPOLD LAUGHS.]
- You did it.
- JOHNNY: I can't believe we did that.
I thought you were a goner for sure.
Me too.
[LAUGHING.]
TABBY: Thank you, Tuko.
Don't step any closer.
What's wrong with you? It saved you in there.
I saved myself.
Tabby, nobody saves themselves.
Everyone needs help now and again.
Are you saying you want to help it? We don't even know what it really wants.
I mean, it's not like we can ask it.
Well, there there are plenty of different ways to communicate.
All we have to do is find out which way works best for our new [WHIMPERING.]
Friend? - Friend.
- [CREATURE WHIMPERS.]
But look.
This isn't just my decision to make, okay? We're a family, and families decide these things together.
So, who thinks we should help? JULIA: Save things that are the last of their kind? Obviously.
I can't even look at you.
Johnny, seriously? What can we do? Tabs, we just now took down a three-headed worm.
Imagine what else we could do.
[CREATURE WARBLES, CLICKS, AND WHIMPERS.]
Plus, we get to use the blasters.
- You had me at blasters - [MR.
LEOPOLD CHUCKLES.]
but I've got my eyes on you.
[WHIMPERING.]
Thanks for doing what you did in the barn.
[WHIMPERS.]
[HORN HONKING.]
Who's that? - [HONKING CONTINUES.]
- [CREATURE WARBLING.]
Back, back, back here, guys! Come on.
- [CREATURE WARBLING.]
- TABBY: Watch out!
