[Engine whirring, electricity crackles.]
- Chookity.
- Ava: Three days.
Restoration cycle is complete.
Chookity! Gar! Gar! Gar! - Hey, little buddy.
- You were pretty banged up.
Two centimeters to the left, and we wouldn't - be talking right now.
- Yeah.
- I saw her.
I saw Quinn.
- And? I don't know if I'll ever see her again.
I knew our friendship would keep you alive, and it did.
It did.
- Clarence? - Rats! You were so close! So close to death! No! What are you doing with all my stuff? Dividing it up.
So rude of you to survive like this.
I was going to take your big thumper, Gary.
- You don't say.
- And put it with the rest of my collection.
Don't worry, you're the only heart.
The rest are spleens.
I'mhonored? You were in a very advanced form of almost being dead, but you stared Father Death in the eyes and said, "Oh, no, no, no, no, no, you can't have me! Go back to the shanty from whence you came, Death!" All right.
What are you talk Wait, where's Little Cato? - What is it? - He left.
Gary, I tried to stop him.
I reached out my hand like this, and I said "No, don't go.
" But he just casually walked around me.
Oh, wow, you did all that? What good is a body if none will respect it? Gary, after Little Cato left, we received this transmission.
Gary, if you're seeing this, then you're alive and you know that I'm gone.
Some things you can't come back from.
I shot my father.
I don't belong here or anywhere anymore.
I'm going as far away as I can.
And please, don't come after me.
We're going after him.
I knew you'd say that, so I record a second message to say, "For real, do not come after me!" We're going after him.
Nightfall, trace the message.
He sent it from this planet, Galang-22.
Oh, oh, wow.
Well, then set course for We're already there, Gary.
Try to keep up.
My word! This G great work! Little Cato is out there, and he needs us now more than ever.
Don't worry, Gary.
I'll bring him back.
- Dead or alive.
- What? No.
No, not dead! - Alive, only alive! - Right, "only alive.
" I think we're on the same page.
No, we're not.
All right? We're not even in the same book.
Right, but we're in the same library.
No, stop the winking.
- I'm not winking.
- Don't wink at me.
If anyone's winking, it's you.
You're still winking.
Stop the winking.
- I'm blinking normally.
- Will you stop it? I love to alternate blinks.
- Is that a crime? - Why are you winking at me?! Please do not kill Little Cato.
Oh, do not kill Little Cato! [Laughs.]
That almost ended up badly.
[Title music.]
2x10 - The Lost Spy [Music.]
Gary: We're not leaving here without him.
Everyone, split up.
Oh, hey! Have you seen my boy? I mean, he's my friend's boy, a boy I know.
- He's my friend.
- Mm-hmm.
He's I guess you could say he's my boyfriend Uh, that's a different story that I [Chuckles nervously.]
I'm leaving.
Woe to us! Our beloved king is dead! Your widowed queen, is she rich? Rich beyond belief.
Her crown alone is made out of diamond-encrusted miniature stars.
- Good Lord! - But all is lost.
If she doesn't remarry by sundown, her dynasty ends.
And her crown is destroyed.
What? Well, does she fancy pint-sized men? You know, a little of the "smalls on talls.
" Yes, her greatest weakness.
And my greatest strength.
How do I do it? A little thing called malnutrition.
You weren't easy to find.
Must run in the family, Sheryl Goodspeed.
[Electricity crackling.]
My name is Todd H.
I run this small power station, the largest in the galaxy.
Got it.
So it's small but huge.
Typical male.
Ooh, how does it feel to be my captive? Am I your captive? [Laughs.]
You're chained, aren't you? - I was.
- [Gulps.]
The only reason why I let your bounty hunters capture me was because I got bored killing them, and I was curious who kept sending them, and now that I know, I'd like to know why.
I'm looking for your son Gary.
All this work to ask me where my kid is? Don't know, don't care.
And now, since you tried to kill me, - I'm going to return the favor.
- Ah! Oh! Ow! No! By the time we're done, you're going to tell me where your son is, whether you like it or not.
[Dramatic music.]
I should warn you, Mrs.
Goodspeed, it's going to get wild.
[Indistinct chatter.]
Fox, Ash, you fleece the populace.
I'm going to marry the queen.
It's my oldest con.
Queen, may I have the pl Gah! Bango! [Grunting.]
Now, your Queeniness, may I have this dance? So beautiful! [Dramatic chord strikes.]
Aah! Wow, no one has ever called me that before.
- So do you want to dance or not? - Uh guh.
Ugh! [Trumpet plays.]
Look at us, two crazy kids! Back home, we don't have wealth like this.
Heck, we don't have money at all! We exchange goods and services for hugs and love.
It's all I've ever known.
That's so romantic, you cute little raisin-boy.
But sometimes I think [Grunts.]
No, you're just going to say it's crazy.
No, no, go on.
Sometimes I think maybe I should experience an enormous amount of money and riches, you know, just to see what your mixed-up world is like.
[Crowd gasping.]
Oh, down again.
[Dog barking.]
I want in.
This little Ventrexian wants to bounty hunt - with the Burner Tribe.
- I'll prove myself.
Give me a name, any name, and I'll track them down.
All right.
Oh, you don't think I got the goods? [Grunts.]
- [Laughter.]
- Aah! And what makes you think you can hunt? [Grunts.]
It's in my blood.
Do I have an assignment or not? Sure.
You know, once you join us, you're in for life, right? - Yeah.
- That is all of your days.
Yeah, I know what "for life" means.
Some people think that's hyperbole, - so I like to clarify up top.
- I got nowhere else to go.
Who should we send him after? - Nails.
- The Truck.
- Scar! - Daniels! Nah.
We go after the biggest bounty on the market now.
Gary Goodspeed.
- You in? - Sure thing.
Gonna be easy murdering this guy that I have no emotional connection to.
- Why do you cry, my gorgeous - Queen.
Oops! Oh, silly me! That's all right.
It was an accident.
- You were saying? - If I don't marry by sunset, I lose everything the light touches, including my crown.
- What if - You marry me? Yes, yes, I accept.
- [Smooching.]
- [Groaning.]
Men love when I cough on them.
So wonderfully slimy! Yay! Hey! Everyone, we're looking for a kid.
We were told he may have come through here.
Psst, that kid, is he a Ventrexian? Because I've seen one.
- You have? - Yeah, yeah.
But I won't tell you where until you do something for me.
What do you want us to do? Here, take this plasma knife and just stab my hand with it.
- Excuse me, what? - Yeah, just a quick stab! Ugh! Right in the old palm! Why do you want me to do that? Never done it before.
Could be cool.
I assure you it will not be cool.
Yeah, how do you know? Have you done it before? - No! - Well, okay then, that's the deal.
No stab, no gab.
You drive a weird bargain, shadow friend.
- Ha! - Aaah! You bastard! That's incredibly painful! All right.
Now tell us the information.
All right! But if you want this information, you'll have to stab my other hand.
Something in your memories will lead me to my good friend Gary.
Oh, this looks interesting.
Your mission is to engage the agent of the Infinity Guard.
Use your powers of subterfuge and seduction to gain his trust and learn what they are building.
We need those plans.
What's the target's name? His name is John Goodspeed.
I can't see anyone but you Let me guess.
Infinity Guard.
- What gives me away? - The jawline.
- Or the uniform.
- No, it's the jawline.
So why would a woman like you be all by herself on a Friday night? Waiting for the right company.
Stop wasting my time! Take me to Gary! [Beeping.]
Where do you think you're taking me? It's a surprise.
This is the only place in the galaxy where you can see the suns rising and setting at the same time.
There's nowhere I'd rather spend the morning slash late afternoon slash middle of the night with than you.
So good morning and good night and happy New Year.
- Did I leave anything out? - The kiss.
I could have tortured her, but no, I did the memory injection.
Now I'm sitting in the middle of a freaking rom-com! [Communicator beeps.]
Sorry, I need to take this.
What?! You've been on this mission for six months.
If you don't gain intel soon, you will be pulled from this assignment.
Trust me, I'm on it.
- Are you okay? - Actually I'm pregnant.
And along comes Gary.
Would you please, just please tell me - where the freaking kid is? - Okay, okay! People who got no place to go hook up with the Burner Tribe.
Thank you! And where are they? I'll tell you right after you stab me in the neck.
Come on, do it.
- Please no.
- I'd do it for you.
- Come on! - You will die! - Just a little stab.
- No! - Come on.
- Oh, my gosh.
- Please! - You're going to die! - Do it! - Do you understand that? Stop clutching your pearls, you drama queen.
- Just do it! - [Sighs.]
Gary, please.
Just stab him in the neck already.
Okay, yeah.
I'm the crazy one here.
All right.
Aaah! Are you trying to kill me?! Oh, it's a gusher.
Oh, my God.
It's just falling in that guy's drink.
Right, it's just it's literally shooting directly in that guy's Oh, and he just Oh, he just drank it.
Whoa! Oh! There's a port right on the edge of this city.
And he's dead.
Let's go! What makes you sure Little Cato will come back with us? Good question.
He'll see how much we went through to get him, and he'll come back.
- Impressed? - I am, Gary, but I'm programmed - to be impressed by you.
- Shut up, KVN.
Gary, when you lost your dad, what was the one thing you wanted more than anything? - Besides a cookie.
- Dang! I was going to say cookies.
- Well, I guess a normal life.
- Exactly.
After what went down with Avocato, to get him to come back, you're going to have to step up.
- I'm already doing the most I can.
- Really? Mm.
Well, then maybe we should stop looking.
[Organ music.]
Considering they had a whole, like, seven minutes to plan this thing, it's, uh, not too shabby.
And I hear at weddings there's a whole hour of just appe-teasers! Ooh, little pies.
You think you're big pies, but you're not! There he is, the most gorgeous man I've ever whirled in my tentacles! Do you, the Prince of Rescue, promise to worship, obey, and service the queen? I do.
And, Queen, are you cool with this rando? Sure.
You may slap the groom across his honey cheeks.
- Oh! - Go nuts.
He's your property now.
- Come here! - Ew.
Oh, good God! Oh.
Oh! [Whimpering.]
Aah! I've got it! I've got it! [Laughs.]
Ooh-hoo-hoo, the crown is mine! Di-di-di-da-doo, do-dah Oh, hey, Clarence! Nice crown! I couldn't agree more.
Aah! Whoa! You're going to break your favorite small! Oh, even that crown isn't worth irreparable damage to my poor wonder worm.
There's no escape! I must take my poison capsule.
Ooh, naughty.
Why didn't you tell me you had recreationals? [Coughs.]
Aaah! [Thud.]
Aah! - Ugh, dad! - Ugh! Mommy? Oh, step-mommy! The way I see it, we have 30 seconds - before Fox loses it completely! - Mama! Why must you damage property every time I accidentally poison a stepmother? Quickly, grab the crown and everything of value.
[Pounding on door.]
Guard: Are you okay? Speak words to my face if you are okay.
[Imitating the queen.]
I just fell and hit my head, and I might be dying.
Dying?! We are coming in now! What the actual hell, Fox? I'm trying to save you, Papa.
Yeah, if you don't like how we pull this grift, then we don't have to help you at all! No, no, no, kids, I I'm sorry.
From now on, we do things like a normal family.
Do you mean that Papa? I do.
Just right after you hide me in the queen.
- Where? - Say what now? [Pounding on door.]
Just pick a hole and push! Then after the funeral, we'll do a McBerry Jerry.
Dig you up, cut you out, rinse you down, and we're home free! - Has that ever worked? - Ninth time's the charm.
Push me in! [Door opens.]
Oh, no! The queen is dead! - I'm fine! - [Laughs.]
All right.
She's not dead.
- There goes the McBerry Jerry.
- The queen lives! Oh, it's a miracle! For real, people.
I just have a bit of bloat.
- Oh, I feel so nauseous.
- Oh! Queen, there's a life inside of you.
It is a double miracle! - One, two! - You're supposed to be dead.
What? I'm pregnant? Yay.
King Clarence gave me a baby-y-y-y-y.
- I can't wait to nurse him.
- No! I think your prince is ready to be born! Now, this is the right number of stairs.
Little Cato! - Go away.
- Hey, don't do that.
Not after what we've been through.
- I said, "Go away!" - I can't believe my eyes.
I thought we were sending you on a suicide mission, - but you actually found him.
- Wait, what? Oh! Little Cato, what's going on? There's a price on your head, Gary! There is? Well, look, there's some stuff I want to talk about.
- Now?! - I've been doing some thinking! I know you've been dealt a bad hand, and you keep getting dealt bad hands.
I know I have.
Yeah, I'm not talking to you, but all right.
Hey, would you please Sometimes our heart goes all-in, and we get wiped out.
Preach, brother.
[Gun cocks.]
[Laser ricochets.]
But you got to stick it out.
The only way out is through.
We can still make this right.
What are you talking about? Just I mean J-just stay! What do you say I I, uh I adopt you? - What? - What? - Chookity! - Cawww! I mean only if you want, like, a, you know, rental dad until we get your actual dad back, or like a vice dad.
You want to be my dad? Go to him.
Be loved.
I mean I mean, you you don't have to change your name to Little Goodspeed or any You see that, guys? First there was no family, and then there was one, like us.
- That's the power of magic.
- Cawww! Mmm.
Excuse me, but Yeah, can I just Yo.
Ooh, that's nice.
I'll be good.
I'll change.
Just get me out of here! Oh! Oh, yes! Thank you.
Ooh, look at you.
He looks more like me than his father, don't you think? [Rumbling.]
Huh? Aah! Aah! Oh, he's brought treasures with him! It is a triple miracle! One, two, three! Uh, goo-goo, gah-gah.
- Fox, Ash, run! - He speaks and runs.
A quadruple miracle! One, two, three, four! [Ship approaching.]
Grab hold.
My crown! I'll always love you! [Cheering.]
Wait, where's my crown? Dang it, I have lost track of all the miracles.
[Beeps, warbles.]
So, agent, what is John Goodspeed building? Something big.
[Baby cries.]
Hey, shh! Mommy's working.
He's building an anti-matter bomb.
- You were using me? - What? N-no.
Well, I mean, at first, but, look, I never expected to fall in love.
What kind of a monster has a child with someone just to steal some plans? I didn't! I - [Crying.]
Shut up! - Get out! [Cries.]
I wish you were never born.
Fun! Hello, Sheryl.
Looks like we got off on the wrong foot.
I didn't realize you had such a strong opinion about your son.
That's something we have in common.
What if, just throwing this out there, you help me find Gary, and in return I did something for you? Maybe there is something.
I'm look for dimensional keys.
Never heard of them, but you've got yourself a deal.
