He-Man and the Masters of the Universe (1983) s01e43 Episode Script

The Royal Cousin

1 [dramatic music.]
I am Adam, Prince of Eternia and defender of the secrets of Castle Grayskull.
This is Cringer, my fearless friend.
Fabulous secret powers were revealed to me the day I held aloft my magic sword and said, "By the power of Grayskull!" [chorus.]
He-Man I have the power! [roaring.]
Cringer became the mighty Battle Cat, and I became He-Man, the most powerful man in the universe.
Only three others share this secret: our friends the Sorceress, Man-At-Arms, and Orko.
Together we defend Castle Grayskull from the evil forces of Skeletor.
[dramatic music.]
[ominous music.]
[pinging tones.]
And where have you two been? You were to report back upon completion.
We ran into a little problem, Skeletor.
You did plant the Globe under the Royal Palace? Not exactly.
He-Man caught us.
He took it! The both of you are fools! Go back and find that Globe and plant it so it will grow.
And if you fail again, I will not be so understanding.
And so you took the Globe away from them, hmm? Yes, it's safely hidden away in Castle Grayskull.
Nice work, lad.
Don't tell me.
Tell He-Man.
I am telling He-Man.
Come in! Adam, your father's been looking everywhere for you.
Where have you been? Uh, well, I was just out on some royal business.
As in monkey business? Well, you better report to your father.
He was a little surprise for you.
He-Man Adam, this is your cousin Jeremy.
Wow, the last time I saw you, you were just a baby.
Big deal.
Jeremy will be visiting us.
I want you to take charge of him while he's here, Adam.
But, Father, my royal duties.
They will have to wait.
Now show Jeremy a good time.
You are certainly qualified in that department.
Oh, all right.
Let's go, cousin.
Don't call me cousin.
Jeremy, this is Man-At-Arms.
Don't you have a real name? My friends call me Duncan.
That's not much better.
Listen, you I'm Orko.
Pleased to meet you.
Well, if you like, I could show you some magic and Maybe later.
Look at all this stuff.
What's this? Be careful with that.
It's my new rock softener.
What's it for? Well, to convert rocky areas to soil for farming.
Now put it down.
I haven't even tested it yet.
Don't worry.
I'll test it for you.
Jeremy, don't.
[glass shatters.]
But now it's been tested.
Young man, someone ought to teach you some manners and respect for other people's property.
Uh, why don't we wait in the hall? That's a good idea, Orko.
Go ahead, Jeremy.
You've caused enough trouble in here.
Hey, Jeremy, how come you were so mean to Man-At-Arms? Uh, I'm just sick of grown-ups spoiling my fun.
I know how you feel, but Adam and Man-At-Arms are okay.
They like to have fun too.
Oh, yeah? We'll see.
Yeah, my cousin's a real charmer, all right.
Well, I'm worried, Adam.
That boy's going to cause big trouble.
I can feel it in my bones.
I'll keep a close eye on him.
You're needed for other things, like now; you were going to help me test the rock softener out on the plains.
Oh, I forgot, all right.
I'll have to leave Jeremy with someone else for a while.
The question is, who's gonna be the lucky babysitter? Uh, sure, Prince Adam.
I'll look after him.
Jeremy, stay with Ram Man for a while, and don't play in any of those vehicles.
They're dangerous.
Duh, don't worry.
II got a way with youngsters.
Bull's-eye! [upbeat music.]
Do it again.
Do it again.
Uh, come on.
Not again.
Enough is enough.
Do it again, or I'll tell the king you were mean to me.
Oh, my aching head.
He-Man [Man-At-Arms.]
Go ahead.
Try to chip it.
It won't chip.
It's too hard.
Stand back.
Let's see how the softener works.
Now try it.
Yeah, it's a little too soft.
I'll have to make a quick adjustment.
Well, try and hurry.
I have a feeling Ram Man may be in over his head.
[playful music.]
Oh! [groans.]
Jeremy! Where are you? Jeremy.
Where are you? Uh-oh.
Prince Adam's not gonna like my losing the boy.
Duh, hey, Jeremy! Answer me.
All right! [whoosh.]
Now, this is what I call fun.
Jeremy! Stop! Hey, that's not a toy! Duh, Jeremy, you can bring it down by pushing the last red switch.
I've got a better idea.
[Ram Man yells.]
He-Man He-Man could have put that Globe anywhere.
How does Skeletor expect us to find it? I'm tired of taking orders from him.
Quiet, Evil-Lyn.
Skeletor has ways of hearing.
Let him! You forget, Tri-Klops, we have powers too.
If we just had What's that? [Ram Man yelling.]
I can't make it out.
Use your Distavision, fool! [warbling.]
It's a young boy flying a Sky Sled.
Ram Man's with him.
Let's see what they're up to.
Well, I'm just about ready.
Hey, that looks like one of our sleds.
[Ram Man yelling.]
Take 'er down! Now! All right, all right.
Hey, it's stuck! Help! Help! [Ram Man yelling.]
Help, please! Someone help! It's Jeremy and Ram Man.
- They're in trouble.
- Hurry, lad.
By the power of Grayskull! [dramatic music.]
He-Man I have the power! [Jeremy.]
We're gonna crash! [grunting.]
He-Man He-Man! What's he doing up here? Let's find out.
Set the basher down behind the rocks.
Wow! He-Man! I never thought I'd get to see you in person.
What happened here? Uh, Prince Adam's cousin, Jeremy, he decided to go for a little joyride.
Why, Jeremy? I thought it'd be fun.
Somebody could have been hurt.
That's not my idea of fun.
But you saved us.
Nothing happened.
Well, one of these days, something you do might cause more trouble than anyone can fix.
Can you see them? [dramatic music.]
My Gamma Vision can.
They're just behind these rocks.
We were testing a new rock softener.
When we're through, we'll take you back, but you'll have to spend the rest of the day in your room.
But Adam said I could go to the street market.
Hmm, when Adam hears what you've done, I guarantee he'll agree with He-Man.
Who is the boy? I don't know, but I sense that he is weak.
We may be able to use him.
Well, that should be just about right.
Now just a few more quantums.
[dramatic music.]
Now let's get this soil back to my lab.
If I'm right, it should be perfect for crops.
Come on, He-Man doesn't have the globe.
Forget the globe, three-eyes.
That new invention is much more valuable.
What would you want with a rock softener? We use it on the walls of Castle Grayskull.
You mean so Skeletor can get in? Not Skeletor.
Then we will hold all power.
Yes, of course! Let's take it now.
- Wait! - Why not? Because we'd have to face He-Man.
Then how do we get it? We won't have to.
I think that boy will get it for us.
This isn't fair! You said I could go to the street market! You were told not to play with the vehicles.
I just wanted to have some fun.
What you think is fun might be dangerous to others.
Or yourself.
I can take care of myself.
I don't need anyone's help.
Well, you did today.
Duncan, let me talk to him alone for a few minutes.
Hm, be my guest.
So you don't need anyone's help, huh? That's right.
I do; I need the help of people who care about me.
Everybody does.
I'll bet He-Man doesn't need anybody else's help.
That's not true.
How do you know? I know He-Man a lot better than you think.
Look, even if you could take care of yourself, how would you feel if something you did hurt someone else? Maybe even killed them? Think about that.
Well, going to the street market's not gonna hurt anybody.
[indistinct chatter.]
All right, all right, you can try the magneto boomerang.
Just quit nagging me, will you? There's a target on top of that building.
I want to keep it! I told you: You don't have enough money.
Perhaps this would be enough.
Ah, yes, yes.
Yeah, the magneto boomerang is yours, my friend.
Oh, one moment, young man.
I paid for that, but you can keep it if you help me play a little joke.
On who? An old friend of mine, Man-At-Arms.
That grouch? Sure, I'll help you.
There's a little box with flashing lights in his laboratory.
Yeah, his rock softener.
Bring it back here to me.
And I get to keep it? The boomerang? Deal! I hope it's a good joke.
[sinister music.]
The joke will be on He-Man and all of Eternia.
You'll be going home tomorrow, Jeremey.
Have you enjoyed your stay? Eh, it's been all right.
Uh, Your Majesty.
Adam, the rock softener, someone's taken it.
That device was for the good of everybody.
Who would have taken it? I can't imagine.
Unless What's the hardest substance on the planet? The walls of Grayskull.
I don't get it.
Why is everyone so upset? Skeletor's warriors could use the rock softener to enter Castle Grayskull.
If that happened, all of Eternia would fall to the forces of evil.
Does that mean that that people would would get hurt? Maybe even killed? Jeremy, do you know anything about this? Kind of.
Now this is serious.
Tell us what you know right now.
I took the rock softener.
A woman asked me to.
A woman? You can bet it was Evil-Lyn.
She said it was a joke.
She bought me a boomerang.
You've made a grave mistake, young man.
Man-At-Arms, alert Captain Teela at once.
Eternia's only hope is that somehow He-Man will get word.
[dramatic music.]
Hurry! By the power of Grayskull! [dramatic music.]
He-Man I have the power! I'm gonna make up for what I've done.
You were right about Jeremy causing trouble.
You know, I think he actually felt bad.
Maybe he's learned something.
Well, I just hope he hasn't learned it too late.
As soon as I get the right setting, we'll soften the walls of Grayskull and enter our new home.
Attention! Sensors detect Growth Globe nearby.
So that's where He-Man hid the Globe Castle Grayskull.
Activate it! [beeping.]
It will keep growing until we stop it.
And that won't be until after it's knocked down the Castle's walls from the inside.
Now to weaken those walls! [dramatic music.]
I sense danger.
An enemy attacking the Castle.
He-Man [He-Man.]
There's Evil-Lyn.
The Jaw Bridge is starting to crack! It's too powerful for my magic.
The party's over, Evil-Lyn.
He-Man! Quick! Inside.
He-Man, hang on! [groaning.]
Look! The Jaw Bridge is open.
Grayskull is ours for the taking! [Tri-Klops.]
And He-Man won't be giving us any trouble now.
He-Man! You're hurt! [groaning.]
Jeremy, bring me my machine.
Stop the boy! Oh! You use your boomerang to get the machine.
Now! Hey! [chorus.]
He-Man Now, if I can just reverse its effects.
That's better.
Now for you, Evil-Lyn.
No more mister soft guy.
Hey, put me down! Down! No! Put us down! Duncan, your portaprison.
With pleasure.
He-Man He-Man! Quick! Inside.
Castle Grayskull is in danger.
No magic can stop it.
Only your strength can.
Push, He-Man.
Use all your power.
It's shrinking.
[He-Man grunts.]
[lightning crackles.]
Sorceress! Can you get me to the window? Thanks for the lift.
Whew! I guess that's the way the ball bounces.
Before I left, I wanted you all to know how sorry I am for what I did.
Well, we all make mistakes, Jeremy.
At least you were willing to learn something from yours.
Not only that, but you're quite a shot with that boomerang.
Thank you, but it was your idea.
I'm glad you were there.
And He-Man was glad you and Duncan were there to help him.
You think so? Did he tell you? Well, let's just say I'm pretty sure.
Well, bye, everybody.
I'll never forget my trip, and I'll never forget to listen to the people who care about me.
Hey, Jeremy! You forgot your boomerang! Here! Orko, don't throw it! Oops, sorry.
But why didn't you want me to throw it? [shouting and clatter.]
That's why.
I see what you mean.
Hey! Keep away! Hey, no! Get away! Cut it out! Help! [laughter.]
Well, Orko, Jeremy sure changed his ways.
Yeah, he was acting pretty rotten for a while.
I think all he really wanted was for people to notice him.
But what good does it do to be noticed if people don't like what they say? [He-Man.]
That's right.
The best way to get attention is not to look for it.
By being polite and helpful, people will not only notice you; they'll like you too.
I'm going to do something helpful right now.
What's that? I'm gonna say good-bye! [dramatic music.]
