Master Detective

"Master Detective" [OPENING THEME PLAYING.]
Follow the trail.
You're probably wondering what I'm doing.
- No.
- Well, if you must know, - I am collecting evidence.
- Evidence? Of what? - I won't know until I find it.
- I wants to help.
Sorry, Beast Boy.
This is a job for a [SIRENS WAILING.]
ROBIN: Master Detective! "Master Detective"? That is a very impressive title you have given yourself.
I know.
- And what makes you a master detective? - Three essential qualities.
Number one.
A master detective can find out anything from small, seemingly unimportant details.
For instance, I can deduce from this stain and the cool breeze coming from the kitchen that you ate ice cream from the carton and didn't close the freezer door.
That is all true.
That's exactly what I did! Number two.
A master detective must have an extremely broad base of knowledge on any given subject.
Go ahead.
Ask me anything.
Ooh, ooh, ooh.
How come trees are so tall? In order to maximize exposure to sunlight.
For this reason, forest trees in particular will grow tall due to their proximity to one another.
However, a solitary maple growing in an open field will grow wide rather than tall due to the fact that it simply has more room to grow and expand, thus maximizing sunlight exposure through width rather than height.
That's a lot of info, yo.
Number three, and most important, a master detective knows to dig deeper when he's onto something.
- You means, like, with a shovel? - Yes! A brain shovel.
Like the time you said you couldn't come to my birthday because you were sick.
Now, an average person would've said, "Feel better.
" But instead, I hid in the bathroom for 24 hours, waiting for proof of this sickness.
It never came.
I thoughts I fooled you good.
Attention to detail, extensive knowledge, and gut instinct.
These are the three qualities that define me as a M-M-M-Master Detective! Okay, if you're such a master detective, tell me what's up with the animals on the rock.
- Animals? - The ones that live on the rock out there.
They change once a year or about every 52 adventures.
The rock was previously inhabited by the pelican bird.
CYBORG: And before the pelican was that crab.
BEAST BOY: And don't forget my seagull brother from a feathered mother.
He was first up on that rock, yo.
Of course I've noticed that there have been three other animals living there, each for a year and they've all gone missing.
I wonder what happened to all of 'em.
Perhaps the rock is not the rock, but the rock monster that eats one sea creature per year.
CYBORG: Or maybe they got some sick inheritance and they're living it up in style somewhere else.
BEAST BOY: They was probably picked up by some aliens and they's getting experimented on right now! RAVEN: Or they just ate each other.
Like what happens all the time in nature.
Good guesses all around, except yours, Raven.
That's boring! The answer is obvious.
The animals are being planted there to spy on us.
Sounds like a stretch.
Who is using the aquatic animals to do the spying on us? That is a question only a master detective can answer.
We'll start with what we know.
Or in this case, who we know.
Keep your guard up, Titans.
This guy is a slippery character.
Ah, your plan is to ask the octopus questions? Interrogation is one of the many tools in the Master Detective's Tool Box.
- Okay, but he can't talk.
- Oh, he'll talk.
They all talk.
What have you done with the pelican, the crab and the seagull?! [CHITTERS.]
Oh, I cannot help it.
He is the adorable! Isn't that correct, Mr.
The Squishy Face? Oh, yes, you are.
Oh, yes, you are.
Stop tickling the suspect! [SQUEAKS.]
Oh, beautiful.
It is changing the colors.
Ah-ha! He's attempting to camouflage himself.
Now I know you're hiding something.
Who are you working for?! Who?! [SCREAMS.]
It stings! It burns! [GRUNTS.]
Ah, so you're a real tough guy, huh? Well, I don't need your confession.
You've already told me everything.
Behold! Wait.
Those are just random markings.
Oh, maybe you're right, Raven.
These marks are small, insignificant details until you press them together! [EXCLAIMING.]
He's found the triangle! He has found it.
You are the Master Detective-ator, baby! What's that triangle mean, though? The triangle tells me everything I need to know.
It is the ancient symbol of a sinister secret society bent on controlling the world without anyone ever knowing they even exist.
The The Illuminati.
ALL: So obvious.
- Oh, come on! - Where to next, Master Detective? To get to the bottom of this, we'll have to go to the bottom of the ocean.
- Wow.
- Ooh! We're coming up on the base of the rock now.
Ah-ha! Barnacles! Barnacles? That's your big clue? - Barnacles?! - Yes, barnacles.
If you had an extensive knowledge of all things, like I do, you would know that barnacles live almost exclusively in shallow waters, and yet, we are hundreds of meters deep.
What's it mean, Master Detective? What's it mean? It means, my dear boy, that these barnacles are fakes and are mostly likely a hidden switch.
Master Detective! - How does he do it? - I don't know how he does it but he just keeps on does-ing it! ALL: Go, Robin! Go, Master! Detective! What, what, what! He just cracked the rock open.
This doesn't prove anything.
Oh, ye of little faith.
We shall see.
" A big, empty cave.
We're closer than ever to finding those animals, Titans.
Now sit back and watch the Master Detective work.
Uh-huh, uh-huh.
Let's see, up here.
Come on, come on.
There must be a trick stalagmite, or Or maybe these pebbles are a clue! All right.
This is a waste of time.
A real master detective would've found those animals by now.
All you've been doing is making absurd leaps of logic based on nothing.
We have been here for the several hours.
Maybe we're looking in the wrong place.
Atatatata! Do you hear that? - No.
- Listen.
- We hear the nothing.
- What is it, bro? I hear something! Shh.
It's my gut and it's telling me something.
What's it telling you, bro? It's telling me that I'm onto something.
And that means it's time to dig deeper! - With your brain shovel? - That's right.
Robin, I think it's time to stop [METAL CLINKS.]
I knew it! "Something.
" [GASPS.]
The symbol of the Illuminati.
Yes! M-M-M-Master Detective! [MUSIC.]
RAVEN: The Illuminati's plan for world domination all laid out.
- You were right.
- Of course I was! MAN: It was only a matter of time.
We cannot hide from the Master Detective forever.
I am Lumino, head of the Illuminati! [LAUGHS.]
Save it, triangle man.
We came here for answers.
I suppose there's no harm in walking you through our plan for world domination.
We did work hard on it.
It all starts here with the banks.
We don't care about the banks.
- Tell us about the animals.
- "Animals"? The pelican, the crab and the seagull, fool.
- I don't know what you're talking about.
- Whoa! Playing dumb, eh? Then we'll have to do this the hard way.
Titans, go! [YELLS.]
Conspiracy cover-up! [MUSIC.]
Illuminati laser! [GRUNTS.]
Conspiracy crush! [GRUNTS.]
Grassy knoll gaze! [SCREAMS.]
Now talk.
Where are the animals? Really, I don't know! I'll stop all the domination plans.
I'll pull my lizard-men out of Congress.
We'll stop using Hollywood to hasten the New World Order.
Just let me go.
- It appears we may have hit a dead end.
- Hold up.
All of this and we still don't know where the animals are? - You, sir, are no master detective.
- You let us down, fool.
You are a master of the disappointment.
I don't know what went wrong.
You were right, Raven.
I'm not a master detective.
I'm nothing if I can't even find three dumb animals! [SOBBING.]
