HEY, CHECK THIS OUT.
YOU GO TO THE LEFT, GO TO THE RIGHT AND THEN SHOOT! SCORE! ( laughing ) HEY, GUYS.
HEY, ERNIE.
WHAT'S WITH THE BROOM? STONE CANYON YOUTH CENTER CHALLENGED US TO BROOM BALL.
BROOM BALL? YEAH, IT'S EASY.
JUST LIKE HOCKEY, EXCEPT YOU USE A BROOM AND A BALL.
I'M GOING TO BE COACH.
I NEED PLAYERS FOR THE TEAM.
I WAS HOPING THAT YOU GUYS WOULD WANT TO PLAY.
I DON'T KNOW, ERNIE.
THERE HE IS.
WE CAME BY TO PUT UP SOME POSTERS, ERNIE.
EVERYBODY WANTS TO SEE US PLAY.
YOU FIND A TEAM TO TAKE ON THE AWESOME STONE CANYON BEETLES? THESE GUYS ARE GOING TO PLAY.
( laughing ) THESE GUYS? WE HAVEN'T LOST IN TWO YEARS.
WE NEED SOME REAL COMPETITION.
WE'LL TAKE YOU ON.
WE'RE UP FOR A CHALLENGE.
SEE YOU AT THE GAME, ROOKIES.
BETTER START PRACTICING.
YEAH.
( blows whistle ) Zedd: TOMMY WILL NEED MORE THAN PRACTICE TO DEFEAT ME.
HE WAS CREATED BY RITA AND I WANT TO WIPE OUT ALL MEMORY OF HER FAILURES.
WE SHALL DESTROY THE GREEN RANGER ONCE AND FOR ALL.
WHAT IS YOUR FIENDISH PLAN, THEN, EVIL ONE? SILENCE! I'M THINKING.
I MUST FIND A WAY TO DEPRIVE HIM OF HIS POWERS.
YAY! DO IT! GOOD IDEA! PERHAPS THIS SILLY GAME THEY ARE GETTING READY TO PLAY WILL GIVE ME AN OPPORTUNITY.
WHAT'S THIS? A BEETLE? AH.
YES! YES.
IT'S PERFECT.
A STAG BEETLE SHALL BE MY MONSTER.
ARISE! ( laughs ) LIE IN WAIT FOR TOMMY THEN ATTACK, AND DRAIN HIM OF HIS POWER.
NOW GO! ( cheering ) NICE SHOT.
NICE PASS TO SET ME UP, KIM.
COME ON.
LET'S GIVE BILLY A LITTLE BIT MORE PRACTICE.
HEY.
WHO'S THAT? Kimberly: OH.
THAT'S RICHIE.
HE'S THE NEW KID IN SCHOOL.
HE'S SUPER, SUPER NICE.
HE'S CUTE TOO.
EXCUSE ME, LADIES.
I'D LIKE TO INTRODUCE RICHIE.
HEY.
HI.
Ernie: HIS FAMILY MOVED HERE.
Kimberly: OH, THAT'S GREAT! WOULD YOU LIKE TO JOIN US? OUR TEAM.
LET'S SEE.
I GOT ALL THE PLAYERS I NEED BUT I COULD USE AN ASSISTANT COACH.
YEAH, SURE.
SOUNDS LIKE FUN.
WE'RE NOT HERE TO PLAY, BROOM HEAD.
THIS SMELL-O-METER I GOT FROM THE BACK OF THAT COMIC BOOK IS GOING TO HELP US PROVE WHO THE RANGERS REALLY ARE.
WE'LL GET A SNIFF SAMPLE OF EVERYBODY AT THE GAME BY PRETENDING WE'RE DOING INTERVIEWS.
INTERVIEWS.
YEAH.
THEN ALL WE GOT TO DO IS MATCH THE SCENTS WE GET WITH THE SMELL OF THE POWER RANGERS AND WE GOT 'EM NAILED.
YEAH.
MAN, I SURE HOPE WE CAN BEAT THOSE STUCK-UP STONE CANYON BEETLES.
THE WAY YOU SHOOT THERE'S NO WAY WE CAN LOSE.
I'LL SHOW YOU HOW YOU CAN LOSE! I'LL SEND DOWN MY PUTTIES TO HOLD YOU FOR THE STAG BEETLE.
GO! AT LAST! THE END OF THE GREEN RANGER IS AT HAND! OH! LOOK OUT! PUTTIES! REMEMBER, GO FOR THE "Z.
" OKAY.
# GO, GREEN RANGER # # GO! # # GOLDAR'S GONNA GET YOU # # TONIGHT # # DON'T LET LORD ZEDD PUT A SPELL ON YOUR MIND # # GO, GREEN RANGER # # GO, GREEN RANGER # # GO, GO! # Trini: I THINK OUR POSTER LOOKS BETTER.
DEFINITELY.
YEP.
HMM.
THAT'S ODD.
I THOUGHT THERE WAS A LARGE COLEOPTERA ON THAT POSTER.
YOU'RE RIGHT, BILLY.
THERE WAS A BEETLE THERE BEFORE.
PUNY HUMANS! NOW YOU SHALL FEEL THE WRATH OF LORD ZEDD! NOT ANOTHER GIANT BUG! IT'S TIME TO MORPH.
PTERODACTYL! DRAGONZORD! # YES, YOU FELL INTO THE DANGER # # AND YOU'RE ALL ALONE TONIGHT # # YOU'RE SURROUNDED BY THE HUNTED TYPE # # AND YOU JUST DON'T GET FULL SIGHT # # WHO WILL COME RUNNIN' TO YOUR SIDE? # # WE WILL PROTECT YOU FROM YOUR FRIGHT # # ALL OF US ARE ON YOUR SIDE # # WE'LL TAKE THEM # # WE'LL TAKE THEM # # DOWN.
# ENOUGH OF THIS! TIME TO SAY GOOD-BYE TO YOUR POWERS, GREEN RANGER! HEY! WHAT?! I'LL DRAIN YOUR STRENGTH FROM YOU.
ZORDON, TOMMY AND I NEED HELP.
OH! THESE CLAY BRAINS NEVER QUIT.
HERE'S HOW I GET MY KICKS.
# WHOA # # OH-OH, OH-OH, OH-OH.
# NOTHING LIKE A LITTLE GREEN RANGER POWER TO BRIGHTEN UP YOUR DAY! ( laughs ) WHAT? WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO ME? I'VE DRAINED YOU OF YOUR POWERS! YOUR DAYS AS A POWER RANGER ARE OVER! ( beeping ) KIMBERLY AND TOMMY HAVE BEEN ATTACKED BY A MONSTER.
READ YOU.
IT'S MORPHIN TIME! MASTODON! TRICERATOPS! SABER-TOOTHED TIGER! TYRANNOSAURUS! NO! STOP IT! AH! YOUR POWER NOW BELONGS TO LORD ZEDD! TOMMY! I FEEL COMPLETELY WIPED OUT, YOU GUYS.
WE'RE GETTING YOU BACK TO THE COMMAND CENTER NOW! Goldar: YOUR PLAN WORKED PERFECTLY! OF COURSE IT HAS, YOU MINDLESS MINIONS! AND NOW WE SHALL BEGIN PHASE TWO! I LIKE HIS STYLE BETTER THAN RITA! YEAH! THE STAG BEETLE SHALL ATTACK ANGEL GROVE.
WHEN THE RANGERS RESPOND HE'LL DESTROY THEM WITH THE GREEN RANGER'S POWERS! BILLY, WHAT IS YOUR ANALYSIS OF TOMMY'S CONDITION? PHYSICALLY, HE'S OKAY.
I FEEL FINE.
JUST WEAK.
I DON'T REALLY REMEMBER WHAT HAPPENED.
WELL, WHEN THE BEETLE ATTACKED US HE WAS DEFINITELY TARGETING TOMMY.
THAT MUST BE PART OF ZEDD'S PLAN.
WE MUST LEARN WHAT THE STAG BEETLE HAS DONE.
THIS READOUT INDICATES TOMMY HAS BEEN STRIPPED OF HIS POWER RANGER ENERGIES.
AY-YI-YI! BE CAREFUL.
IF THE BEETLE HAS STOLEN TOMMY'S POWERS IT COULD DO THE SAME TO YOU.
IT CONTROLS THE GREEN ENERGY.
IT IS EXTREMELY POWERFUL.
ZORDON, WHAT CAN WE DO? Billy: ALPHA COULD CONSTRUCT A GREEN ENERGY TRANSDUCER TO RECAPTURE TOMMY'S POWERS ALTHOUGH THAT WOULD TAKE SOME TIME.
AN EXCELLENT SUGGESTION, BILLY.
I'LL GET RIGHT ON IT.
( alarm blaring ) Zordon: THE BEETLE HAS REAPPEARED NEAR ANGEL GROVE.
LET'S GO GET HIM.
REMEMBER, THE STAG BEETLE MUST NOT BE DESTROYED UNTIL WE'VE RECOVERED TOMMY'S POWERS.
OKAY.
WE'RE ON IT.
HANG IN THERE, TOMMY.
WE'LL GET YOUR POWERS BACK FOR YOU.
BACK TO ACTION! ( hollering ) DIDN'T YOU LEARN ANYTHING FROM WHAT HAPPENED TO YOUR GREEN FRIEND? NOW IT'S YOUR TURN! I HATE BUGS! YOU'RE FINISHED, POWER RANGERS! I'LL SQUASH THAT BUG BRAIN.
( beetle laughing ) YOU'RE NO MATCH FOR ME, FOOLISH RANGER.
YOU OKAY, BRO? YEAH.
HOW ABOUT A LITTLE GREEN RANGER POWER? WE HAVE TO CAPTURE HIM TO GET TOMMY'S POWERS BACK.
ATTACK! WANT TO PLAY BALL? OKAY, PUTTIES, LET'S FINISH THEM OFF.
THIS GUY'S TOUGH.
WHAT'S THE MATTER? SOMETHING BUGGING YOU? I'LL DISTRACT HIM WHILE YOU GUYS ATTACK.
NO.
HE'S TOO STRONG.
HE'S USING TOMMY'S POWERS AGAINST US.
WE'VE GOT TO FIND SOME COVER.
WE'LL FIND A SPOT WHERE WE CAN FIGHT HIM ON OUR TERMS.
WAIT A MINUTE.
JASON, HOLD UP.
SHOULDN'T WE GO THE OTHER WAY? MAN! THIS WAY, GUYS.
COME ON.
IT'S WORKING SO FAR.
THE BEETLE'S DEFINITELY FOLLOWING US.
HE'S BLASTING THEM WITH MY POWERS.
WE'VE GOT TO DO SOMETHING.
ALPHA, HAVE YOU FINISHED THE GREEN ENERGY TRANSDUCER? I'M WORKING AS FAST AS I CAN.
HOW DOES IT WORK, ALPHA? IT'S REALLY QUITE SIMPLE.
IF EVERYTHING GOES ACCORDING TO PLAN WHEN THE BEETLE FIRES A BLAST OF GREEN POWER THE TRANSDUCER WILL SUCK IT UP.
HOPEFULLY, THE MONSTER HASN'T ALREADY USED TOO MUCH OF YOUR POWERS.
I HOPE NOT.
AS SOON AS YOU'RE FINISHED I WILL MORPH TOMMY TO THE RANGERS' LOCATION.
RIGHT, ZORDON.
JUST LET ME HAVE A CRACK AT THAT BLOCKHEAD BUG? WHAT'S THIS? THOSE PATHETIC POWER RANGERS ARE RUNNING AWAY.
AFTER THEM, MY CLAY COMRADES.
AFTER THEM.
END OF THE ROAD.
THERE THEY ARE.
WHAT'S THE MATTER, POWER RANGERS? NOWHERE LEFT TO RUN? WE'RE NOT AFRAID TO FIGHT YOU.
MAYBE A BLAST OF GREEN RANGER POWER WILL CHANGE YOUR MINDS.
YEAH.
GIVE IT YOUR BEST SHOT.
IT WILL BLOW US RIGHT OFF THE EDGE.
RANGERS, DUCK.
SAY GOOD-BYE, POWER PATSIES.
YES.
THANK YOU, ALPHA.
IT WORKED.
I GOT MY POWERS BACK.
WHAT HAPPENED? I THOUGHT WE WERE TOAST.
FOR SOME REASON THE GREEN POWER BLAST NEVER HIT US.
IT'S TOMMY.
HE'S BACK.
THE GREEN POWER IS OURS AGAIN AND THAT MEANS YOU'RE FINISHED, BEETLEHEAD! WEAPONS, EVERYBODY, NOW.
I'M THE UNBEATABLE BEETLE.
WE'LL SEE ABOUT THAT.
POWER RANGERS, LET'S BRING THEM TOGETHER.
POWER AXE! POWER BOW! POWER DAGGERS! POWER LANCE! POWER SWORD! POWER RANGERS! FIRE! I DON'T THINK HE'S DONE YET, GUYS.
YOU BETTER BELIEVE HE'S NOT DONE.
JUST WATCH.
GROW, STAG BEETLE! GROW! ZEDD'S POTION.
IT'S REVIVED HIM.
THAT'S NOT ALL.
ALL RIGHT, RANGERS, LET'S DO IT.
WE NEED THUNDERZORD POWER NOW.
MASTODON LION THUNDERZORD POWER! PTERODACTYL FIREBIRD THUNDERZORD POWER! TRICERATOPS UNICORN THUNDERZORD POWER! SABER-TOOTHED TIGER GRIFFIN THUNDERZORD POWER! TYRANNOSAURUS RED DRAGON THUNDERZORD POWER! # THEY'VE GOT # # A POWER AND A FORCE # # THAT YOU'VE NEVER SEEN BEFORE # # NO ONE COULD EVER TAKE THEM DOWN # # THE POWER LIES ON THEIR SIDE # # GO, GO, POWER RANGERS # # GO, GO, POWER RANGERS # # YOU MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS.
# MEGA-THUNDERZORD POWER UP! LET'S SEE HOW YOU LIKE A LITTLE PINCHER ACTION.
THUNDERZORD BATTLE READY! WE'RE HIT.
WE'VE GOT TO STABILIZE.
GET BACK TO YOUR POSITIONS.
COME ON, GUYS.
WE GOT TO EXTERMINATE THIS BUG.
( laughing ) TAKING A LITTLE REST, EH? WELL, WAKE UP.
WE CAN'T TAKE ANY MORE HITS LIKE THAT.
WE'VE GOTTA GET OUT.
( laughing ) BATTLE STATIONS, EVERYBODY.
BRING ARTILLERY POWER ON LINE.
LET'S DO IT.
COME ON! MY PINCHERS WILL MAKE POWER-MUSH OUT OF YOU.
WHEN IT'S CLOSE ENOUGH POWER PUNCH.
WE NEED THE THUNDER SABER NOW! MY BEAUTIFUL PINCHERS! # GO, GO, POWER RANGERS # # GO, GO, POWER RANGERS # # YOU MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS.
# OH, BOY.
KA-BOOM'S MY FAVORITE SOUND.
SILENCE! THE STAG BEETLE MAY HAVE FAILED ME BUT IT HAS NOT BEEN A TOTAL LOSS.
BUT YOUR BEETLE WAS DESTROYED, MY LORD.
THE BEETLE DRAINED MUCH OF THE GREEN RANGER'S POWER.
NOW IT'S ONLY A MATTER OF TIME BEFORE HE IS DESTROYED.
YEAH! YES! COME ON, KIM.
OKAY, KIMBERLY Announcer: It's tied at eight.
Next goal wins the tournament.
SO, WHO DO YOU THINK IS GOING TO WIN? ANGEL GROVE.
PASS THE BALL TO JASON.
JASON WILL GIVE IT TO TOMMY FOR THE LAST SHOT.
ARE YOU A POWER RANGER? ARE YOU A POWER RANGER?! BEETLES, SWEEPERS, FACE OFF.
COME ON, GUYS.
LET'S GO! The game resumes with six seconds remaining.
TOMMY, SHOOT! LET'S DO IT, TOMMY! NICE SHOT.
WHOA, JASON! GREAT GAME, YOU GUYS.
Ernie: WAY TO GO.
YOU GUYS HAVE A GREAT TEAM.
WELL, THEY HAD GREAT COACHES.
YEAH, WE DID.
YOU GUYS ARE REALLY GOOD.
THANKS.
MAYBE YOU'LL BEAT US NEXT YEAR.
YEAH.
MAYBE.
HOW ABOUT SOME COLD DRINKS? IT'S ON THE HOUSE.
YEAH.
LET'S GO, RICH.
YO, TOMMY, GREAT SHOT, MAN.
THANKS.
I JUST WISH I COULD BEAT LORD ZEDD THAT EASILY.
I WON'T BE MUCH USE TO YOU GUYS NOW.
THE BEETLE USED UP SO MUCH OF MY POWERS.
DON'T WORRY ABOUT IT.
YOU'LL BE ALL RIGHT.
WE'RE GOING TO GET YOUR POWERS BACK UP TO FULL STRENGTH.
YOU'RE RIGHT.
I'LL I'LL BE BACK.
