# WHAT WERE YOU SAYING? I HOPE ADAM HAD A GOOD TIME AT HIS FAMILY REUNION.
HE WAS EXCITED.
THIS WAS HIS CHANCE TO GET IN TOUCH WITH HIS ROOTS.
THAT'S IMPORTANT TO HIM.
HEY, GUYS.
WHERE DID YOU GET THAT COOL LANTERN? THEY PRESENTED IT TO ME AT THE REUNION.
IT'S BEEN IN MY FAMILY FOR YEARS.
APPARENTLY, IT HAS GREAT POWERS.
THAT'S QUITE AN HONOR.
IT IS.
A LANTERN KEEPER IS CHOSEN FOR EACH GENERATION.
IT'S A BIG RESPONSIBILITY.
WHAT DOES THIS INSCRIPTION SAY? Adam: I WISH I KNEW.
THEY DIDN'T TELL YOU? I'M SUPPOSED TO DISCOVER IT FOR MYSELF.
WE'LL HELP YOU DISCOVER IT.
CAREFUL.
THAT'S A FAMILY HEIRLOOM.
OKAY, OKAY.
UH UH I GOT IT.
THE LANTERN SAYS DO NOT TRY AND READ SOMETHING Aisha: YOU GUYS, BE CAREFUL.
THAT WAS CLOSE.
LOOKS LIKE YOUR LANTERN'S ALREADY DEMONSTRATING ITS CAPABILITIES.
SURE PUT THOSE TWO IN THEIR PLACES.
I DON'T THINK I'VE EVEN BEGUN TO UNDERSTAND ITS POWERS.
I'LL SHOW YOU THE POWERS OF THAT CONTRAPTION, BLACK RANGER.
BABOO, SQUATT BRING THAT LANTERN TO ME.
HEY, I WANT TO GO.
ALL RIGHT, GO.
MAYBE AMONG THE THREE OF YOU YOU CAN DO SOMETHING RIGHT.
I'LL HARNESS THAT LANTERN'S POWER AND MAKE MATTRESS STUFFING OUT OF THOSE RANGERS.
Billy: KO'S MEETING US HERE.
I CAN'T BELIEVE HE TAKES CARE OF THIS PLACE BY HIMSELF.
HE'S AN AMAZING GUY.
HE'S BEEN RUNNING THIS PLACE SINCE I WAS TEN.
MY PARENTS MET HIM YEARS AGO.
HE'LL BE REALLY AMAZING IF HE CAN TRANSLATE THIS INSCRIPTION.
IF ANYBODY CAN DO IT, IT'S KO.
HE KNOWS SEVERAL DIFFERENT LANGUAGES.
KO.
GOOD TO SEE YOU, BILLY.
THIS IS MY FRIEND, ADAM.
HI.
BILLY WAS RIGHT.
THIS IS A VERY SPECIAL LANTERN YOU HAVE HERE.
Adam: YOU'VE GOT QUITE A COLLECTION.
Ko: I SEE YOU APPRECIATE THINGS OF BEAUTY.
MY FATHER PRESENTED THIS TO ME.
ON MY FOURTH BIRTHDAY.
THE INSCRIPTION EXPLAINS COURAGE.
"THE DRAGON YOU FEAR IS ONLY AS POTENT AS YOUR IMAGINATION.
" WHAT DOES IT MEAN? WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO YOU? I GUESS, THAT FEAR'S ONLY AS POWERFUL AS YOU MAKE IT IN YOUR MIND.
IS THAT RIGHT? IF YOU BELIEVE IT, THEN IT IS SO.
Aisha: WE SHOULD FIND A GREAT PLANT HERE FOR KIMBERLY'S GARDEN.
Rocky: IT WAS NICE OF YOUR PARENTS TO LET HER START ONE.
SHE'S BEEN PRACTICING SO HARD FOR THIS GYMNASTICS COMPETITION I JUST HOPE SHE HAS TIME FOR IT.
Rocky: WHAT ARE YOU GUYS DOING HERE? WE'VE BEEN ASSIGNED TO PATROL THIS AREA.
PUT YOUR MINDS AT EASE.
Billy: KO, COULD YOU TELL US WHAT THE INSCRIPTION SAYS? MY FAMILY TOLD ME I HAD TO FIND ITS MEANING FOR MYSELF BUT I DON'T KNOW WHERE TO LOOK.
"THE LAMP MAY LIGHT THE PATH BUT THE SOUL MUST LIGHT THE WAY.
" WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? THESE ARE WISE WORDS, ADAM BUT LIKE ALL OTHERS, THEY ARE ONLY WORDS.
I DON'T UNDERSTAND.
AS BEFORE, YOU MUST DISCOVER WHAT THIS MEANS TO YOU.
AND IF YOU BELIEVE, THEN IT IS SO.
HAVE PATIENCE.
ANCIENT WORDS DO NOT ALWAYS REVEAL THEMSELVES RIGHT AWAY.
NOW I MUST TEND TO THE REST OF MY GARDEN.
IF YOU'LL EXCUSE ME.
THANKS, KO.
I FORGOT TO TELL YOU, SOMETIMES THE ADVICE KO GIVES DOESN'T MAKE SENSE UNTIL A DAY OR TWO LATER.
THAT'S GOOD, 'CAUSE IT SURE DOESN'T NOW.
THERE THEY ARE.
Rocky: HEY, BILLY, ADAM.
TENGAS! RANGER NINJA POWER NOW! DON'T JUST STAND THERE.
GO AND GET THE LANTERN.
LOOKS LIKE IT'S THREE AGAINST TWO.
WE CAN TAKE THEM.
DOUBLE VAULT.
YOU GOT IT.
LOOK AT ALL THESE LANTERNS.
WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO? WE DON'T KNOW WHICH ONE IS THE RIGHT ONE.
IF WE TAKE ALL OF THEM, NOBODY CAN YELL AT US.
( cawing ) ( cawing ) TAKE THAT! WHAT ARE YOU DOING? HEY, DON'T GET YOUR FEATHERS IN A RUFFLE, PAL.
HOLD STILL.
HEY! TAKE THIS, GENTLEMEN.
TAKE THAT, BIRDBRAIN.
EASIEST FIGHT I WAS NEVER IN.
COME ON, YOU TWO.
LET'S TAKE OUR LANTERNS AND GO HOME.
- YEAH! - ALL RIGHT! - YEAH! OKAY, GUYS, LET'S NINJA POWER DOWN.
EVERYBODY OKAY? YEAH.
Adam: OH, NO.
RITO STOLE MY LANTERN.
IT'S GONE.
I'M REALLY SORRY, ADAM.
I PROMISED I WOULDN'T LET ANYTHING HAPPEN TO IT.
I SWORE IT IN FRONT OF MY FAMILY, AND NOW IT'S GONE.
IT IS NOT YOUR FAULT.
DO NOT BE SO HARD ON YOURSELF.
I SHOULDN'T HAVE LET IT OUT OF MY SIGHT.
I CAN'T BELIEVE RITO WOULD STEAL ALL THOSE LANTERNS.
STEAL? WHAT? MONEY? - JEWELS? - FOOD? NO, SEVERAL IRREPLACEABLE LANTERNS HAVE BEEN STOLEN.
OH, YEAH? WHAT'S WITH HIM? ONE OF THEM WAS HIS.
OH WE'LL GET BACK THE MISSING GOODS BUT LET ME MAKE A SUGGESTION.
FORGET THE LANTERN.
COME INTO THE '90s.
EVER HEAR OF A FLASHLIGHT? FLASHLIGHT! THAT'S GREAT! COME ON, LET'S GO.
IF YOU TWO HAD ANY BRAINS, YOU'D BE DANGEROUS.
WHAT DID YOU TAKE ALL THESE LANTERNS FOR? YOU GONNA OPEN A STORE? YOU FIND THE RIGHT ONE OR I'LL CHOP YOUR BONES INTO SUSHI.
WHOA! THAT ONE NEARLY HIT ME IN THE SKULL.
GET IT? "SKULL"? ( laughing ) SKULL, GET IT? HUH, HUH? GET IT, HUH? HUH, GET IT? HUH, SKULL? HUH, SKULL, HUH? LOOK INSIDE FOR A NAME TAG! Skull: HUH, HUH? GET IT, HUH? HUH, HUH? HEY, LOOK, SKULL, UP AHEAD.
DON'T TELL ME YOU TWO CAN'T READ.
WHAT'LL WE DO? CALL FOR REINFORCEMENTS? UH, UH UH GIVE ME THAT MANUAL, COME ON, QUICK BEFORE THEY BEAM US UP SOMEWHERE.
I'M TRYING TO FIND THE SECTION ON ALIENS.
OW, THAT HURT.
OH, THAT HURT.
THAT HAD TO HURT.
THAT REALLY HURT! FORGET IT! TAKE THEM ALL.
LET'S GO, MEATHEADS.
( screaming ) WHY ARE WE SCREAMING? BECAUSE EVIL SPACE ALIENS ARE USING THEIR MAGICAL POWERS RIGHT IN FRONT OF US.
OH.
( screaming ) Zordon: I BELIEVE THAT ZEDD WAS AFTER ADAM'S LANTERN AND NOT THE OTHERS.
WHAT WOULD ZEDD WANT WITH ADAM'S LANTERN? YOU SAY THE LANTERN POSSESSES GREAT POWERS.
MAYBE ZEDD AND RITA WANT TO USE THAT AGAINST US.
AN EXCELLENT DEDUCTION, BILLY.
WE MUST GET IT BACK BEFORE ZEDD CAN HARNESS ITS ENERGY.
AY-YI-YI, RANGERS.
THERE'S NO TELLING WHAT ZEDD'S DONE WITH THAT LANTERN BY NOW.
WHY DID YOU BRING ME SO MANY? HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO KNOW WHICH ONE'S GOT THE SPECIAL POWERS? THE GARDEN GUY SAID ALL OF THEM WERE SPECIAL.
FORTUNATELY, I HAVE A NATURAL GIFT FOR SENSING EXTRAORDINARY POWERS.
THAT'S TRUE.
YOU DID CHOOSE ME.
GET REAL.
HERE IT IS! THIS IS THE LANTERN WE WANT.
THIS ONE MATCHES THE DRAPES BETTER.
AH, ZIP IT, MONKEY-BREATH.
I KNOW WHAT I'M DOING.
ENOUGH! LET'S GET ON WITH IT.
GET RID OF THIS MESS.
SEND IT ALL BACK TO EARTH.
I DON'T WANT THIS GARBAGE CLUTTERING UP MY THRONE ROOM.
YOU'RE SO POLITICALLY INCORRECT, ZEDDY.
I LOVE IT.
DON'T CALL ME ZEDDY.
NOW, GET READY FOR LANTERRA, POWER DWEEBS! ( both panting ) "A GOOD DETECTIVE KEEPS TRACK "OF WHAT IS IN FRONT OF HIM "AS WELL AS TO EACH SIDE AND BEHIND HIM.
" HIYA! ( laughing ) ( screaming ) M-M-MONSTER!! I DON'T SEE WHAT GOOD IT'S GOING TO DO TO KEEP LOOKING.
ALPHA SAID HE'D LET US KNOW IF ANYTHING HAPPENS.
I FEEL RESPONSIBLE.
THE CITY COULD BE IN DANGER IF ZEDD AND RITA USE THE LANTERN'S POWER FOR EVIL.
WE'LL KEEP LOOKING.
MONSTERS IN THE PARK! I CAN'T FIND A CHAPTER ON MONSTERS! YOU SAW A MONSTER IN THE PARK? RUN FOR YOUR LIFE! THIS IS ADAM.
YOU GUYS THERE? THIS IS TOMMY.
COME IN.
YOU SEE ANYTHING UNUSUAL in the viewing globe? ( laughing ) Alpha: Ay-yi-yi! Zedd and Rita's Lanterra monster is loose.
WE'RE ON OUR WAY.
IT'S MORPHIN TIME.
WHITE RANGER POWER! PINK RANGER POWER! BLUE RANGER POWER! RED RANGER POWER.
LET'S HEAD THIS CREEP OFF.
IT'S MORPHIN TIME! BLACK RANGER POWER! YELLOW RANGER POWER! IT'S THE RAINBOW WARRIORS.
EN GARDE, RANGERS.
LANTERRA HAS ARRIVED.
WE'LL TURN YOUR LIGHTS OUT.
DO YOUR WORST.
- FINE.
- NO, WAIT.
MAYBE THERE'S A WAY TO STOP THAT MONSTER WITHOUT DESTROYING IT.
THAT LANTERN'S IMPORTANT TO MY FAMILY.
I HAVE TO TRY AND SAVE IT IF I CAN.
I HEARD SOMEONE LOST A LANTERN.
WELL, YOU'RE IN LUCK.
I'M YOUR REPLACEMENT.
I'LL LOOK GREAT IN YOUR REC ROOM AFTER I'VE WRECKED ALL OF YOU.
( laughing ) PERFECT! I KNEW ADAM'S LOYALTY TO THAT SILLY LANTERN WOULD MAKE HIM UNABLE TO FIGHT.
SO? I KNEW THAT TOO.
I KNEW FIRST.
BUT WHO'S KEEPING TRACK? YOU'RE DONE FOR, RANGERS.
WHAT DO YOU SAY WE WARM THINGS UP A BIT? ( groaning ) HOW DARE YOU USE THE POWERS THAT WAY? ( grunting ) THEN HOW ABOUT THIS? ( grunting ) THIS MONSTER DOES NOT HAVE OUR BEST INTERESTS AT HEART.
THAT'S ONE POWERFUL LANTERN.
YOU THINK THAT'S BRIGHT? WAIT TILL I TURN ON MY HIGH BEAMS.
WE'VE GOT TO FALL BACK AND REGROUP.
THIS THING WILL COME AFTER US.
I'VE GOT IT-- THE INSCRIPTION SAID "IT'S THE SOUL THAT LIGHTS THE WAY.
" THAT MEANS THE POWER'S INSIDE ME, NOT THAT LANTERN.
YEAH! OH, YOU NEED ANOTHER DEMONSTRATION OF MY POWER? THE LANTERN'S AN OBJECT.
IT CAN ONLY REMIND ME OF THE STRENGTH I POSSESS.
WATCH IT-- SOME OF MY BEST FRIENDS ARE OBJECTS.
LET'S DIM THIS LIGHT.
YOU'RE JUST A WORTHLESS WALKING LAMP SHADE.
SEE? WHAT'D I TELL YOU? MAKE LIGHT OF ME WILL YOU? HAH! GOT YOU.
YOU GRABBED THE WRONG HAND.
SORRY.
I'LL GET YOU FOR THAT.
( groaning ) ( yelling ) ( grunting ) All: ALL RIGHT! LOOKS LIKE THE LIGHT OF THE PARTY'S HAVING A LITTLE POWER FAILURE.
OH! HOW DARE THOSE MANGY RANGERS KNOCK OVER MY PRIZED CREATION? THEY WON'T GET AWAY WITH THIS.
( growling ) LANTERRA MUST NOT BE DEFEATED! LET'S RAISE THE STAKES.
( growling ) ( gasping ) OH, MAN! WE'RE GOING TO NEED SOME SERIOUS HELP.
All: WE NEED NINJAZORD POWER-- NOW! ( howling ) ( roaring ) ( growling ) # THEY'VE GOT # # A POWER AND FORCE THAT YOU'VE NEVER SEEN BEFORE # ( shrieking ) # THEY'VE GOT # # THE ABILITY TO MORPH # # AND TO EVEN UP THE SCORE # # NO ONE # # CAN EVER TAKE THEM DOWN # # THE POWER LIES ON THEIR SIDE # # GO, GO, POWER RANGERS! # All: POWER UP! COME AND GET ME, RANGER.
GREETINGS, RANGERS.
I THOUGHT YOU COULD USE A LITTLE ASSISTANCE.
( laughing ) YOU'RE JUST ANOTHER TARGET.
WHOA! THAT DID SOME DAMAGE.
ALLOW ME TO TRY.
GO GET HIM, NINJOR.
YOU'RE A DIM BULB.
WHAT DID YOU SAY? ( growling ) NO ONE CALLS NINJOR DIM AND SURVIVES TO CONVERSE ABOUT IT.
( grunting ) A CHEAP TRICK.
NINJOR IS FURIOUS! ( groaning ) ( shrieking ) FALCONZORD, POWER UP! ( shrieking ) I'M LOCKED ON.
EVERYBODY ON LINE? - YOU GOT IT.
- ALL SET.
ALL RIGHT, LET'S DO IT.
YOU WILL NEVER GET ME.
LET'S PULL HIS PLUG.
FIRE! # GO, GO, POWER RANGERS! # ( groaning ) # GO, GO, POWER RANGERS! # # GO, GO, POWER RANGERS! # # MIGHTY MORPHIN # GOOD WORK, POWER RANGERS.
THE EVIL LANTERN IS NO MORE.
THANKS.
THANKS.
ADAM, WE ARE SO PROUD OF YOU.
I KNOW HOW HARD IT WAS TO DESTROY THE LANTERN.
ONCE I REALIZED THE LANTERN WAS JUST A SYMBOL OF MY FAMILY'S STRENGTH AND WISDOM, IT WASN'T SO TOUGH.
I WISH WE HADN'T HAD TO DEMOLISH YOUR FAMILY HEIRLOOM.
IT'S OKAY.
EVERYTHING THAT LANTERN REPRESENTED IS INSIDE ME AND WE'RE ALL SAFE.
THAT'S WHAT MATTERS MOST.
DEFINITELY.
CHEERS.
HEY, GUYS.
HEY.
ANGEL GROVE'S FINEST INSISTED ON FOLLOWING US.
THEY THOUGHT THE WALK WOULD BE TOO DANGEROUS.
I GUESS WE SHOULD THANK YOU.
YOU SHOULD THANK US, ALL RIGHT BECAUSE WE'VE SOLVED THE CASE.
TAH-DAH! ANOTHER MYSTERY SOLVED BY BULKMEIER AND SKULLOVICH.
MY LANTERN! WHERE'D YOU FIND IT? YOU SHOULD HAVE SEEN WHAT WE WENT THROUGH BATTLING THAT HUGE LANTERN MONSTER.
YEAH, AND THOSE HUGE PIGEONS.
SKULL REACHED FOR HIS DETECTIVE MANUAL AND WE CORNERED HIM! ONE BY ONE.
CAREFUL, GUYS-- I JUST MOPPED THE FLOOR.
ANYWAY, SO I GAVE HIM ONE OF THESE AND THEN I GAVE HIM ONE OF THESE.
HEY, STOP HORSING AROUND.
AND THEN I DECIDED TO GIVE HIM A FEW OF MY OWN.
SO I GAVE HIM ONE OF THESE AND ONE OF THESE ( yelling ) I HAVE EVERYTHING UNDER CONTROL.
SKULL! GET OUT! AWW.
AHH, MAN.
THERE'S A FISH IN HERE.
STOP! ELUSIVE LITTLE FISH.
