This is how Skull Griner tases Flik and Atta, Flik, and Von Ness in the garbage room goes in F.L.I.K..


[Atta watches the song]

When time runs out~

Princess Atta: Ooh.

[Atta clasps her hands together]

That it only~

[The screen then shows Flik and her together]

Flik: [on screen] Atta.

Princess Atta: Huh?

[She sees herself falling asleep]

Flik: [on screen] Atta? Atta!

[It then shows various clips of them together]

[Atta looks sad]

Princess Atta: Flik. [looks at her hands]

[Up in the Captain's quarters]

Makuta: [waters the plant] There you go, little guy. [chuckles] You came a long way for a drink of water. Just need someone to look after you, that's all... [looks on in determination] We have to go back. [turns on the Comm] Skull Grinder, come down here.

Skull Grinder: [on comm] Aye, aye, sir.

[Atta looks at the screen]

Princess Atta: Flik.

[She hears something and turns off the tape and turns around to see Skull Grinder. Skull Grinder looks at her then at Makuta who has the plant as A113 appears on his watch]

Makuta: Skull Grinder, Atta found the plant. Fire up the Holo-Detector.

Skull Grinder: Not necessary, Captain. You will give it to me. [reaches out a hand]

Makuta: You know what? I should do it myself.

Skull Grinder: Captain. [runs in front of Makuta] Sir, I insist you give me the plant.

Makuta: Skull Grinder, get out of my way.

Skull Grinder: We cannot go home.

Makuta: What are you talking about? Why not?

Skull Grinder: That is classified. Give me the plant. [reaches for it]

Makuta: What do you mean "classified"? You don't keep secrets from the captain.

Skull Grinder: Give me the plant. [reaches for it]

Makuta: Tell me what's classified.

Skull Grinder: The plant.

[He keeps reaching until Makuta grabs his arm]

Makuta: Tell me, Skull Grinder. That's an order.

[Skull Grinder and Makuta glare at each other for a moment until Skull Grinder gives in]

Skull Grinder: Aye, aye, sir.

[He plays a message from Earth]

[The BnL symbol comes up]

Buy N' Large is your super store~

We got all you need and so much more~

President: Just cut it off, will you?

[The song turns off]

President: [sighs] Hey, there, autopilots. Got some bad news. Um... Operation: Cleanup has, well, failed. Wouldn't you know, rising toxicity levels have made life unsustainable on Earth.

[Makuta is shocked. Atta comes over and listens too]

Makuta: "Unsustainable"? What?

President: We're going to have to cancel Operation: Recolonize. So, just stay the course. Um... Rather than try and fix this problem, it'll just be easier for everyone to remain in space.

Makuta: "Easier"?

Man: [whispering] Mr. President?

President: I think... Huh?

Man: [whispering] Sir, time to go.

President: Okay. I'm giving Override Directive A113. Go to full autopilot. Take control of everything, and do not return to Earth. Repeat, do not return to Earth. [puts on a gas mask] Let's get out of here.

[Skull Grinder turns it off and then turns to Makuta]

Skull Grinder: Now, the plant.

Makuta: No. Wait a minute. Computer, when was that message sent out to the Axiom?

[It turns on]

Computer: Message received in the year 2110.

Makuta: That's... That's nearly 700 years ago! Skull Grinder, things have changed! We've got to go back.

Skull Grinder: Sir, orders are "do not return to Earth."

Makuta: But life is sustainable now. Look at this plant. [shows it to him] Green and growing. It's living proof he was wrong.

Skull Grinder: Irrelevant, Captain.

Makuta: What? It's completely relevant! [points out the window] Out there is our home. Home, Skull Grinder. And it's in trouble. I can't just sit here and do nothing. That's all I've ever done. [turns to him] That's all anyone on this blasted ship has ever done. Nothing!

Skull Grinder: On the Axiom, you will survive.

Makuta: I don't want to survive. I want to live!

Skull Grinder: Must follow my directive.

[Makuta sighs in frustration. He looks out the window then looks on with grim determination]

Makuta: I'm the captain of the Axiom. We are going home today.

[Skull Grinder lunges]

Makuta: [gasps]

[Skull Grinder sends a signal and Skull Basher shows up]

[Atta gasps]

Makuta: Skull Basher?

[Skull Basher snatches it]

Makuta: Hey! That's not...

[Skull Basher hisses]

Makuta: This is mutiny! Atta, arrest him.

[Atta aims her wrist gun at Skull Basher]

[Atta points at the box she's opening]

Princess Atta: Give it back!

[Skull Basher moves in]

Makuta: Atta, you are to put this plant straight in the Holo-Detector.

[Skull Basher throws it down the chute]

Makuta: No!

[The plant rises up]

[Atta and Makuta are amazed]

[The plant rises still]

Makuta: Huh?

[Flik comes out]

Flik: Atta?

Makuta and Princess Atta: [together] Flik!

Flik: Atta!

[He climbs out. The plant falls at his feet]

Flik: Oh.

Makuta: Flik, the plant!

Princess Atta: Flik!

Makuta: Over here. Throw it.

[Atta tries to take it from him when Skull Basher grabs both of her arms and holds her]

Princess Atta: Let me go!

Flik: Atta!

[Flik prepares to rescue her when Skull Grinder appears]

Skull Grinder: Give me the plant.

[Flik puts it in his backpack]

Flik: If you want it, come and get it.

[Skull Grinder gets enrage and uses his Mask Stealer axe to tase Flik as Makuta and Atta watch in horror]

Princess Atta: No!

[Skull Basher watches in amazement as Skull Grinder continues tasing Flik. Skull Grinder finishes tasing Flik and Flik falls down the chute]

[Skull Grinder puts his Mask Stealer axe away and turns as Skull Basher still holds Atta who struggles to move]

Princess Atta: Flik!

[Skull Grinder sprays sleeping gas on her and she falls asleep. Skull Grinder throws her down the chute. Skull Basher then turns to Skull Grinder and salutes as Skull Grinder salutes back and Skull Basher leaves as Skull Grinder turns to Makuta]

Skull Grinder: All communications are terminated. You are confined to quarters.

[The lights go off as Makuta lunges]

Makuta: No! Mutiny! Mutiny!

[The doors to the bridge shut]

[Atta wakes up in a room filled with trash]

Princess Atta: Flik? Flik! Flik!

[She looks around but there's no sign of him]

Princess Atta: Flik!

[Three big trash compactors scoop up trash and take Atta with it. They squeeze it into cubes one of which Atta is stuck in. She is put on a pile of stacked cubes, one of which Flik is in nearby]

Flik: [weakly] Atta.

[She looks over and spots him]

Princess Atta: Flik!

[They are pushed towards the disposal hatch]

[Atta frees herself and goes over to Flik's to free him]

Princess Atta: Flik.

[Meanwhile, Von Ness falls into the room and sees Atta and Flik and races towards them]

[Atta sees him coming]

Princess Atta: Hurry, Von Ness.

[Von Ness runs on but gets jammed in the door]

[The garbage airlock opens and Atta flaps her wings and grabs onto Von Ness]

[The trash compactors see what's happening and close the door]

[Later, one of the trash compactors shines its headlights on the trio]

Flik: Thanks, Atta.

Princess Atta: [worried] Flik.

[Atta checks him over for injuries]

[Von Ness then starts cleaning Flik]

[Atta finds one of Flik's backpack straps is broken and flies off to find a new one]

[Meanwhile, Von Ness finishes cleaning Flik]

Computer: All clean, all clean.

[Von Ness sits down]

Flik: [weakly] Flik.

[Von Ness looks up and shakes his hand]

Von Ness: Von Ness.

Flik: [weakly] Von Ness?

Von Ness: Von Ness.

Flik: [weakly, to himself] Von Ness.

[Atta then returns with straps but none of them are right]

[Flik opens his backpack]

Flik: [weakly] Directive.

[Flik hands her the plant. Atta looks at it]

[Atta looks at her watch which says "Deliver to Axiom Superior", but shakes her head and tosses it away]

Princess Atta: [holds out her hand] Directive.

[Flik looks on and weakly walks toward the plant and picks it up and hands it to Atta]

Flik: [weakly] Earth.

[Atta looks quizzical]

Flik: [weakly] Earth.

[Flik points at the chute above]

Princess Atta: Earth.

Flik: [weakly] Earth.

[Flik looks at her]

Princess Atta: Earth? Earth!

[Atta grabs Flik]

Flik: [weakly] Von Ness.

[Von Ness grabs Flik's back]
