Erky Perky (2006) s03e18 Episode Script

Perky In Charge

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? ♪
- I got good news and bad news.
First, I'm going away for
my annual beauty treatment.
- That's the good news, right?
- No, that's the
bad news, for you.
The good news is I'll
be back tomorrow.
- You know the old saying?
While Mad Margaret's
away, the bugs will play.
- What did you say?
- I said, um, it
won't be the same here
without you, Margaret.
- I know, that's
why I've decided
to give one of you
the job of being me
and watching over
Kitchen while I'm away.
- Yes, my time has come!
- Look, Perky, the
key to Margaret's
secret larder of food!
- There's only one bug here
who I trust will do anything
to protect the key to my larder.
- Aww, stop it, you're
making me blush.
- And that bug is
- Me?
- Noooooooo!
- Promise you'll guard
this key with your life.
'Cause if I find
anything missing
from my larder when I get back.
- I-I promise.
- And no parties, Sajuica!
- Bye, everybody,
don't miss me too much.
- Don't worry, we won't.
- Wait, Margaret,
about that key.
- Okay, everybody,
party at mine!
- Okay, hand over
the key, Perky.
We've got some
serious eating to do.
- I just made a promise.
No key, and no parties.
- Who does he think he is?
Holding out on me!
His so-called best friend.
- Seen it before.
Give a bug a bit of power and
it goes straight to his head.
- I've got to have that key.
There must be a
way we can lure him
out of Mad Margaret's lair.
- Well, I've always
said there's nothing
like a good old
fashioned bug-napping.
- Hang on, I don't
want to hurt Perky.
- I'm not talking
about bug-napping him.
- Well then, who?
- You, of course.
- Might as well make myself
useful while I'm here.
- If you let me look
after Margaret's key,
then you could just go home.
- Oh, thanks, Cecil,
but it's no trouble.
- But I'm Margaret's main bug!
She should've given
the key to me, not you.
- Be that as it may,
Cecil, Margaret's put me
in charge of Kitchen, not you.
- Well then, you better clean
this up before she gets back.
- Ohhh, now I have
to start again.
- [Erky] Ahhh! Help! Perky!
Perky! I've been bug-mugged!
- Coming, Erky!
I'll save you, Erky!
- And not a moment too soon.
- There, you're free to go.
- Wait, I think I'm going to
- Erky! Oh no, oh
no, talk to me!
Whoa! Hey, what's going on?
The key!
- I've got it!
- Hey!
- Whoaaa!
- Erky, how could you?
- I'm trying to help you, Perky.
Give me that key and all
your problems will go away.
- The only problem
I have is you, Erky.
Friends don't steal
from other friends.
- But, Perky.
- From now on, everybody
will do as I say
or I'm blowing the whistle.
Margaret, you're back already?
- That's right.
I've come back to tell
you to give Cecil the key.
- Why are you so flat?
You haven't been
swatted, have you?
- No! Go away! Don't touch me!
- Cecil? What are you doing?
- What does it look like?
Pretending to be Margaret
so you'll give me the key.
- But why?
- Because I earned it!
All my life I sucked
up to Margaret
and now I want
what's coming to me.
Give me that key!
- No, I made Margaret a promise.
- Then you leave me no choice.
Game over! You're going down!
- Look out, Cecil! Fly paper!
- Got you now!
- Problem solved.
Margaret's going
to be so impressed
with me when she gets back.
Unauthorized music?
Where's it coming from?
- Hi, Perky!
Welcome to the party.
- Party? But Sajuica--
- Wanna dance?
- Err, well, I, ah, no!
- Why not? You're a
great dancer, Perky.
- Out! Go on now, shoo!
Ahh! Oof! Hey, stop it!
Sajuica! Margaret
said no parties.
- Come on, Perky.
You don't wanna be a dull
old party-pooper, do you?
- Rules are rules.
- Perky?
- Party's over.
You can have your boombox
back when Margaret returns.
And in the meantime.
Everybody out!
I'm just doing my job, Sajuica.
We can still be
friends, can't we?
- No! I'm never talking
to you ever again!
- But, Sajuica!
Situation is getting worse.
Dissent can not be tolerated.
Must guard against
surprise attacks.
Mustn't sleep, enemies
are everywhere.
I know you're out there!
You won't get in.
Oh no, 'cause I'm going to
(yawns) sit here all night
and the first sign of
(yawns) trouble, I'm gonna
- Lower.
- Hurry up, I can't
hold on much longer.
- It's payback time.
- Erky? Frenzel?
What're you doing
under all that food?
- Um, tidying up?
- Now who's got the key?
I do, I do!
- Not you two as well?
- None of this would've happened
if you hadn't been
such a party pooper.
- Right, that does it.
I'm blowing the whistle!
- [Everyone] No,
not the whistle!
- Put it all back!
The food, the bug box, and
I'll have that key back, too.
- But Perky!
- And make it snappy.
Who's the most beautiful
bug in the Kitchen?
Me, me, me, me, me!
I'm back.
Did you keep your promise
to guard my larder
with your life, Perky?
- I sure did!
Everything is in perfect order
and all trouble-makers
have been locked up.
- Locked up? Who, where?
- Well, I'll show you.
- Hi, Margaret, nice makeover.
- Uh oh.
- [Margaret] PERKY!
(cheerful music)
