Teen Titans (2003) s04e03 Episode Script

Birthmark

Once I've drained the energy from 50,000 barrels of oil I'll flood the city in never-ending daylight.
Huh? You know, Dr.
Light for a guy obsessed with illumination, you're not very bright.
Next time you're looking to steal you might wanna pick a target we can't see from our living room.
Oh.
Well.
Um That's a real pretty light show, but sound packs a bigger punch.
[GRUNTS] Whaa! [GRUNTING] [GRUNTS] [STARFIRE YELLING] - We need to draw his fire.
- You've got it.
Dude, nice pajamas.
Do they glow in the dark? Aah! [BAT SQUEAKING] Huh? Oh [ROBIN GRUNTING] [DR.
LIGHT GRUNTING] [BOTH GRUNTING] Aah! [GRUNTING] No one defeats Dr.
Light.
No one Huh? Remember me? I'd like to go to jail now, please.
All right.
The butt-kicking's over and it's almost midnight.
Time for donuts.
Yeah.
RAVEN: I'll see you back at the tower.
But, Raven You do not wish to enjoy the nuts of dough? It is like eating sweet, tiny wheels.
I just wanna get home before tomorrow comes.
What's so special about tomorrow? [RUMBLING] SLADE: The day has begun.
[WIND WHISTLING] [CLOCK TICKING] Six p.
m.
Just six more hours and it'll be over.
Six more.
[THUD] [GASPS] Hello? ALL: Surprise.
[SCREAMS] Uh Raven? It is merely us, your friends, with warm wishes for the day of your birth.
I told you a surprise party was a bad idea.
- Oh! - How did you know it was my birthday? Um, remember last night how you made that big deal about tomorrow? Well, we started wondering what tomorrow was, so we did some snooping.
Okay, I did some snooping.
And I sort of found a restricted file in the off-limits area of the Titans computer that kind of had your birthday on it.
And we have been preparing your celebration ever since.
We put up tons of decorations.
I baked my famous eight-layer cake, with three kinds of frosting.
And I have assembled for you a traditional Tamaranian throknar the crown of meat.
I hope this is okay.
We just No, it's not.
Look, I really appreciate what you're trying to do here but I'm not interested.
But there will be music and the iced cream and a strange game involving pins and the behind of a donkey.
We got a piñata shaped like Beast Boy.
You know you wanna smack it.
I said, no.
Come on, Raven.
I know you hate fun, but it's your birthday.
It's special.
- You can't let this day end without - No! I told you a surprise party was a bad idea.
Give it a rest.
ROBIN: Raven, what's wrong? I just don't like parties.
It's more than that.
I can tell.
We have a bond, remember? You've been inside my mind.
Let me inside yours.
Robin, you know me better than anyone.
You should know there are places in my mind where you can't go.
Where no one should ever go.
- I'm willing to try if you’ll - I can't.
- Tell me what's going on.
- Just trust me.
If you knew anything about the day of my birth you'd know there's nothing to celebrate.
[TICKING] Can't this thing go any faster? Ugh.
I just want this day to be over.
Relax.
Only a few hours to go.
It might not even happen.
Focus.
Meditate.
It'll be midnight before you know it.
[CHANTING] Azarath, metrion, zinthos.
Azarath, metrion, zinthos.
Aza [CHOKING] TRIGON: What you have concealed, you shall become.
You have no other choice.
Your destiny will be fulfilled.
TRIGON: The portal must be opened.
[GASPS] No! [PANTING] [KNOCKING ON DOOR] I heard you scream.
[BEEPING] Trouble.
CYBORG: So who's the bad guy du jour? Gizmo? Mad Mod? Killer Moth? The report simply stated there was an intruder.
Well, whoever it is, we're gonna totally kick their Oof.
No.
[BEAST BOY GASPS] SLADE: It's been a long time, hasn't it, Titans? A month? A year? A millennium? Far too long for my tastes, anyway.
I was beginning to think I'd never see your smiling faces again.
CYBORG: You.
How did you survive? Terra took you down.
Way down.
Slade, I don't know where you've been, but you shouldn't have come back.
ROBIN: I'm still ready.
That's precious, Robin.
But I didn't come back for you.
[SLADE YELLS] Ever have one of those days where you just feel happy to be alive? Dude.
Yeah.
Since when can Slade do that? Not sure, but he won't be doing it for long.
Titans, go.
[GRUNTS] [CYBORG GRUNTING] - Whoa! - "Whoa"? That's it? No clever comment? I was looking forward to that.
[CYBORG GRUNTS] [BOTH GRUNTING] [ROBIN YELLS] [SLADE YELLS] [BOTH GRUNTING] Take my word for it, Robin.
You shouldn't play with fire.
[ROBIN GRUNTS] It really has been nice seeing all of you again.
I just want this day to end.
I think we both know this day is far from over.
Hello, birthday girl.
Ready for your present? [RAVEN GRUNTS] [SIGHS] I have a message for you.
[GRUNTING] [RAVEN YELLS] It has begun.
[GRUNTS] [YELLS] Stop! [PANTING] How did l? SLADE: You might be able to stop time, birthday girl but you can't stop me.
You can't stop any of it, really.
I have to say, Raven when I found out the truth, I was very impressed.
All this time, I had no idea the power lurking inside you.
The glorious destiny that awaits.
It's always the quiet ones, isn't it? [GRUNTS] But honestly did you think you could just blow out the candles and wish it all away? Today is the day it begins.
You've known this all your life.
It is going to happen.
And no matter what you wish no matter where you go no matter how you squirm there is nothing you can do to stop it.
[GROANING] Raven? [GRUNTS] What is going on? Why is Slade back? Where did he get those powers? How did you stop time? I'm not sure.
I never wanted this day to come.
And when it did, I just wanted it to stop.
RAVEN: I guess I got my wish.
ROBIN: What is happening? It's my birthday.
Raven, run.
[YELLING] I have a message for you.
And I will deliver it, whether you like it or not.
The skies will burn.
Flesh will become stone.
The sun will set on your world never to rise again.
[GASPS] Time won't wait forever.
You can't run away from who you are.
I can try.
RAVEN: Robin.
[ROBIN GRUNTING] [GROANING] [ROBIN GROANING] RAVEN: I shouldn't have dragged you into this.
Any of you.
But you're in and you need to know.
I need to tell you.
When I was born, they looked into my future.
On this day, the anniversary of my birth something is supposed to happen.
Something very bad.
That's why I didn't wanna celebrate.
But just because you don't have a party doesn't mean it's not your birthday.
[GROANS] The symbol on his forehead.
What does it mean? [BOTH GRUNTING] It's just you and me now, kid.
[RAVEN GRUNTS] You're making this much more difficult than this needs to be.
The message must be delivered.
[GRUNTS] [GRUNTING] [CHANTING] Azarath, metrion, zinthos.
[RAVEN GRUNTS] [GRUNTS] What you have concealed, you shall become.
You have no other choice.
No.
RAVEN: Unh! - The message will be delivered.
Your destiny shall be fulfilled.
[GRUNTING] [CAWS] [CAWING] - No.
- Yes.
Look at it.
Drink it in.
Behold the world you are destined to create.
[GROWLING] No.
I won't do it.
This is just a vision.
This can't be real.
This is the future.
Your future.
It began the day you were born, and nothing can stop it.
This will come to pass.
I will make sure of it.
You're going to destroy the world, Raven.
It's written all over your face.
[YELLING] No! We'll be in touch.
Oh.
And happy birthday.
[GROANS] ROBIN: Let's go home.
[TICKING] [THUD] [NOISEMAKERS BLOWING] Um Surprise? Look, we know you didn't want a party.
But after today We hoped that you might reconsider.
You may not like your birthday, but we're all glad you were born.
We're going to need ice cream.
[STARFIRE GIGGLES] - Coming right up.
- I'll cut the cake.
And I shall fetch the throknar.
You're sure you're okay? I will be.
What you told me about your destiny that something bad was supposed to happen I guess it did.
I'm sorry I couldn't stop it.
No one could.
ROBIN: We will find Slade.
We'll figure out how he did what he did and why he was after you.
But right now, you're safe.
You're here with friends.
It's over.
No.
This was just the beginning.
The first task is complete, master.
The message has been sent.
The inscriptions are in place.
She knows what she must do.
The prophecy will be fulfilled.
TRIGON: Then the world of mortals shall soon be ended.
