Erky Perky (2006) s02e13 Episode Script

A Zen Tale

Life was good
on Hot Dog Stand ♪
For two bugs
with food demands ♪
Had our last meal
one sunny day ♪
They got caught
up and swept away ♪
Into Kitchen's
where they landed ♪
We're so hungry ♪
And we're stranded ♪
Finding food is
quite a mission ♪
Other bugs are competition ♪
Now just one question ♪
How do we find our
way back home? ♪
- Come back here!
The tree!
- Which means
- He's here too!
Let's get out of here!
- Hey!
They're leaving!?!
- They are?
- We did it!
We got away with some food!
- That's it?
I can't get by on
just one crumb!
- Ehm, actually
its half a crumb.
- Hey, what's this?
This place is beautiful!
- Look at the tree!
- So much food!
- We'll never go hungry again!
Perky, who's that?
- I am Guardian
of the tree of life!
- Oh yeah!
And I'm a dolphin
and he's a canary.
- Ooh, hey!
Did you see that!?
- Eat some food, more pops out!
Excuse me, could we
perhaps have one of those?
- You not eat fruit of wisdom,
only guardian of the
tree has that honor.
- Oh, we would like to
become Guardians of the tree.
What do we have to do?
- You must get past me.
- No problem!
- You choose!
Contest of wit or
contest of might?
- [Both] Might!
- We go wit wit, OK?
Does wind have wings or feet?
- Feet!
- Oh, wings!
- Only one of you answer.
You discuss first.
- Oh, okay, do-over.
- What is color of
sand-flea dream?
- Red!
No, yellow!
Wait, orangey green!
- Sakimoto!
You two do better
with contest of might?
- Oh, I see, we're
too clever for you eh?
Well I've only got
one thing to say to that,
Okay, you've won this
round, but we will return!
- I be waiting.
- And then you go like that!
And that!
- Ah, you mean the
ancient art of Bug-Fu.
Sure I can teach you that.
I will mold you like putty
and sharpen your
skills until you are
the sharpest putty ever!
- [Both] Wow!
- What's putty?
(exciting training music)
- Oh, boy.
Erky, every once in a while,
a bug comes along
who is a natural warrior.
But that bug just isn't you.
- Well, I'll just
have to train harder!
- And what are you two doing?
- Nothing!
- Oh, nothing.
- That's right, nothing.
- What sort of nothing?
- The sort of nothing that
gets Erky ready to challenge
the Guardian of the tree.
Why do I always do that!?
- Shhh!
- Erky!?
Challenge the
Guardian of the Tree!?
- Look what happened
when you tried!
He wiped the floor with you,
he hardly even broke a sweat.
It wasn't even a contest really!
- If I couldn't beat him,
there's no way Erky could.
- But if he did
- Then Erky would become
the new Guardian of the Tree.
- And you could easily beat him.
(evil laughing)
- [Perky] Is he ready yet?
- Once Erky can break the
spaghetti then he's ready.
But it's going to take a while.
- Hey, he did it!
- I did it!
Alright, time to put that
fruit fly out of business!
- There he is.
- Shh!
- So, you want
challenge me again?
- Yes, but this
time, I know Bug-Fu.
Bee in the bonnet!
Mantis takes a holiday!
- [All] Aaaah!
- Slug salts his tail!
- [All] Wow!
- Wow.
- Ow!
- Oh.
- You are good, but
you learn this move?
Beetle stretches towards dung!
- He caught me
off guard, that's all.
- Potato bug contemplates navel!
- Come on!
- Oh.
- I think I know his moves now.
- Oooh!
This is the move
that finished you off.
- Enough, Cecil!
- Not worthy!
Now for final move.
- Take your hands off my friend!
- You challenge
Guardian of tree?
- Yes, I do.
- No Perky, he's dangerous!
(speaking gibberish)
- Now how did I?
- Perky!
You did it!
Hee hee!
- Mad Margaret!
- Well, Perky, who
would have thought?
I suppose now you're the
new guardian of the tree.
- I am?
- Oh, yes, he is.
So the tree's ours
and all the food on it.
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha!
- Well, I'm here
to challenge you.
- You challenge me?
- Yes, yes.
You know the routine.
A contest of wit or might.
- Ooh, which should I choose?
- I get to choose!
- You do?
- And I chose wit.
Now ask me a question.
- Like what?
- Like what is the color
of the sand-flea's dream?
- Ooooh, now
that's a tricky one.
- [All] Oh!
- No!
- Well look at that.
No more tree.
C'mon Cecil, there's nothing
here worth hanging around for.
- It broke, you broke my tree!
- Sorry.
- I guard this tree for
years, eat nothing but fruit!
Now I go and explore world!
- What?
- Sayonara Kitchen!
Ha, ha, ha, ha!
- Well, it looks like we're
back where we started.
- Starving and without food.
- Look on the bright side,
Perky, you learnt bug-fu.
That's a valuable skill.
- [Perky] How is
that a valuable skill!?
- [Erky] Well it
could be very useful
for breaking up stale bread.
- [Perky] But we don't
have any stale bread.
- [Erky] You're always
such a pessimist.
(upbeat quirky music)
