Teen Titans Go! (2013) s03e10 Episode Script

The Fourth Wall

"40%, 40%, 20%" [OPENING THEME PLAYING.]
One, two, three, four.
[DANCE MUSIC PLAYING.]
I saw you dance From the corner I caught your name In a conversation Playing hard to get I can't understand When I look at you I see the story in your eyes - # When we're dancing # - Cyborg! - # That night begins to shine # - Cyborg! - # Night begins to shine # - Hello! The night begins to shine Night begins to shine When we're dancing The night begins to - Cyborg! [MUSIC STOPS.]
- Yes? Cyborg, we must speak on the topic of the song.
It's pretty great, right? You play it every day.
Multiple times a day.
Yeah, I do! It gets me pumped up! Uh! Bro, what's so special about that song? On the magnetic strip in this cassette tape, lives the greatest song ever written.
The Night Begins to Shine! Influenced by the sounds of the '80s, it was 40% written by Carl Burnett, 40% by Franklin Enea, and a sweet, sweet 20% by William J.
Reagan.
When I hear this song, anything is possible! [GASPS.]
Can such power come from something as simple - as musical arrangements? - Music can transform you, girl.
Transform me? So, I can be Optimus Prime? No! I want to be Optimus Prime! But you can be Bumblebee.
[SONG PLAYS AGAIN.]
Uh [SIGHS.]
[GASPING AND SIGHING.]
[SIGHING.]
[SONG PLAYS AGAIN.]
Whoo! [GRUNTS.]
[MUSIC STOPS.]
What are you guys doing? - The blah.
- Yep.
Pretty much.
You know what I do when I feel, "The blah"? You play "The Night Begins to Shine!" I play "The Night Begins to Shine!" [DANCE MUSIC PLAYING.]
We've heard that song 100 times.
It does nothing for us.
You've got to listen with your heart.
Not your ears.
It's not gonna work.
Whoa.
What's happening to my body? That's the blah going on a temporary vacation.
See you in three minutes, the blah! I saw you dance How am I lip synching when I don't even know the words? The words know you.
They always have.
[GASPS.]
What is happening to reality? Music is its own reality.
This is freaking me out.
What do we do? We ride! I saw you dance From the corner I caught your name [ENGINE REVVING.]
In a conversation Playing hard to get I can't understand [EAGLE SCREECHING.]
# When I look at you # I see the story in your eyes When we're dancing The night begins to shine [HORSE WHINNYING.]
Night begins to shine The night begins to shine [WOLF HOWLING.]
Night begins to shine When we're dancing The night [MUSIC STOPS.]
- Hey! - Cyborg, we need to talk about the song.
You seriously need some variety in your playlist, bro.
- It's time to give it a rest.
- Okay.
Just one more time then.
[MUSIC STARTS.]
[MUSIC STOPS.]
ROBIN: No.
- Just the beginning? - No.
- I'll just skip to the best part.
- No more! - The night is done shining, Cyborg! - It's for your own good, bro.
We are concerned that you cannot function without - the shines of the night.
- I can't and I don't! So what? - Here.
Open this.
- Easy-greasy.
ROBIN: Without the song.
Right.
No problem.
[GRUNTING.]
[PANTING AND GRUNTING.]
[STRAINING.]
What is this jar made of? [PANTING CONTINUES.]
Wow.
You can't even open a pickle jar on your own.
Imagine what would happen if your team was in trouble.
[ALARM BUZZING.]
Crime! Crime! Crime! Crime alert.
The Brain is attacking Jump City.
Titans, go! - [STAMMERING.]
Not you.
- What? Why? You're suspended until you get that jar open without your song.
Titans, except for Cyborg, go! I can do this.
[GRUNTING.]
[GROANS.]
[STRAINING.]
[GRUNTING AND GASPING.]
[CRYING.]
Come on! [SIGHING.]
[ALARM BLARING.]
The Brain has captured the Titans.
They need my help.
Robin was right.
I've been using that song as a crutch.
Without it, I don't have enough willpower to do anything! Even save my friends.
[SIGHS.]
[BIRD SQUAWKING THE SONG.]
[RETCHING.]
[SQUAWKING CONTINUES.]
No way.
"The Night Begins to Shine" inspired that hawk to build its nest.
Birds sing all the time and they're always getting work done! I understand now.
Music is supposed to be a crutch.
And right now, I need me some crutches! [SONG PLAYS.]

THE BRAIN: Look, Titans.
Your great champion is nothing but a sack of meat and metal.
He is nothing without his music.
Cyborg, you have to save us.
I can't.
My song's gone! [SOBBING.]
Forever.
[VOCALIZING THE SONG.]
THE BRAIN: You think that will help? He is defeated.
THE BRAIN: What? I saw you dance From the corner Caught your name [GROANS.]
In a conversation - # Playing hard to get # - What is happening? - # I can't understand # - Stop that singing! [TITANS SINGING.]
# When I look at you # I see the story in your eyes When we're dancing The night begins to shine! - THE BRAIN: Impossible! - CYBORG: Music will transform you.
One shall stand, one shall fall.
