Erky Perky (2006) s03e04 Episode Script

Mind Over Matter

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? ♪
- Ready?
- No!
- What's wrong?
You're not losing
your nerve are you?
- No, it's just so far!
- Yet so close!
Ha ha!
That's the spirit my pal!
- Ooh!
- I've got you buddy!
- Hey.
- Uh, oh.
He's done it!
Oh, my juicy ball of joy!
I can almost taste
you from here!
- Oh.
- Oh no!
My juicy delight!
Trapped in the bowels
of the great gorge!
Never fear my sweet!
I'll save you!
- Why are you
hanging upside down?
- Hanging upside down
clears your brain!
And through the process
of mind over matter,
helps you to overcome hunger!
- Really?
- Abso-buga-lutely!
- Ah-ha!
The juicy eagle has
landed in the great gorge!
- The juicy eagle?
Oh, you mean the
juicy grease ball?
- Oh, that's just brilliant!
Now it's only a matter of
time before every bug in
Kitchen finds out about our
big, fat, juicy, grease ball!
- Did someone say
"juicy grease ball?"
- Can you really
overcome hunger just
by hanging upside down?
- My exoskeleton you can!
Hundreds of other bugs like
you have beaten hunger using
my simple but effective system.
That's right you
too can beat hunger!
This bug was hungry!
Now, after my patented
Hanging Upside Down system,
this bug is hunger free!
- Huh!
- That's right, my
friend, this bug's hunger
has gone, gone, gone!
This bug beat hunger!
And you can too!
- I can?!
- Fast results guaranteed.
Free trial.
No upfront crumbs.
Start today and say
goodbye to hunger forever!
- Where do I sign?!
- Uh oh.
I did it!
Oh, oh no!
- Step one, hanging upside down.
Say no!
- Say no!
- To hunger!
- To hunger!
I did it!
Erky, look at me!
I'm hanging upside down!
(tense music)
- Perky, what are you doing?
- Oh, Hi Erky.
I'm just practicing
mind over matter
to overcome hunger forever.
- I feel no hunger!
- I feel no hunger!
- My hunger is gone!
- My hunger is gone!
- Yeah, right and
I'm Mad Margaret!
- What did you say?!
- Oh, Margaret, I
didn't see you there.
- Hmmm.
If I didn't know better,
I'd think you were
hiding something.
- Hiding?
What could I possibly be hiding?
- Oh, I don't know.
Maybe a juicy grease ball!
- Margaret, you've done
something with your antennae.
They look so fetching!
- They do?
- Absolutely stunning.
- Hmmm, well, I have
been bathing in the juice
of rotten leaves.
- Step Two, finding Inner Crumb!
Imagine the biggest, juiciest,
moldiest crumb you've ever seen.
Now, imagine that
crumb is inside you,
and repeat, "I feel no hunger!"
- I feel no hunger!
- I have Inner Crumb!
- I have Inner Crumb!
I feel no hunger.
I have Inner Crumb.
- Blam!
And the hunger's gone!
- Keep it coming pal!
Together at last!
My ball of joy!
My juicy dream!
- Boof tired.
- Uh-oh.
Boof make boo-boo.
- While every attempt has been
made to ensure the success
of the hanging
upside down system,
hanging upside down may
not work for some bugs.
- I don't believe it.
My juicy grease
ball, gone forever.
- Hey Erky!
I think it's working!
I am not hungry.
Hungry I am not.
- Oh, of course
you're still hungry.
- I couldn't eat a thing!
- Oh, really?
Not even a lovely moldy
yellow stink crumb?
- No.
- Or big, greasy, pools of
brown delicious balls of sludge!
- Nope.
Not even, a big, fat,
juicy, all-day crumb sucker!
Perhaps, Erky, I'll
never have to eat again.
(stomach growling)
- All right, I'll try it.
Anything to take away this
great, inner emptiness!
- Wait!
Erky, you have to
- I feel no hunger.
This absolutely stinks!
- You called?
The devicications will
stop the centrifugal force
from releasifying you!
- Alley oop!
- Randomosity!
- I feel no hunger.
My hunger is gone.
I feel no hunger.
My hunger is gone.
- Hey Erky, look what I found!
- Food!
Glorious food!
- It's amazing.
I've got this big juicy crumb,
but I'm just not hungry anymore.
- Oh, please, please,
please please, please!
- Ah ha!
I knew you were
hiding food from me!
Hand it over, yellow-belly!
- You really need this stuff?
- Of course, I do.
- Here you go then.
- Oh!
- Come on, Cecil.
- I used to be like that.
A prisoner of my own desires.
- Perky!
How could you?!
Come back here!
Where did you get that crumb?
Are you listening to me?
(upbeat quirky music)
