Dexter and the Powerpuff Girls in SUMMER CAMP CRUSH (A fan script)

WHAT THE HECK IS THIS?

Many moons ago in the year 2001, I lived in Los Angeles, trying my hand at screenwriting (something I’m still working on today, with just a little more luck–no one buys original screenplays these days!). Part of that effort was writing demo scripts for shows for which I would have enjoyed writing. For me, that was both Dexter’s Lab and The Powerpuff Girls. So I put together a script for a crossover episode called Summer Camp Crush. What follows is that demo script, in its entirety, raw and unedited (there are typos and the formatting didn’t translate to WordPress perfectly). If you’re a fan of either or both shows, I think you’ll enjoy it. I never did anything with this, so you all are the very first people to see this writing from the vault.

 

FADE IN:

ACT I

EXT. TOWNSVILLE – DAY

Townsville looks peaceful and quiet. It’s a nice summer day.

NARRATOR
Ahh, the city of Townsville. Home to
everyone’s favorite little heroes, the
Powerpuff Girls! Yes, the Powerpuff
girls, who are now- Well, say… Where are
those girls? Where do we usually find
them?

EXT. SCHOOL – DAY

The school is empty.

NARRATOR
No, it’s summer. Maybe they’re in the
lab with the professor?

INT. LAB – DAY

The Professor is hard at work. The Powerpuff Girls are
nowhere to be seen.

NARRATOR
Say Professor…

The Professor faces the audience.

PROFESSOR
Yes, how may I help you?

NARRATOR
We, as in the audience and myself, well
we were wondering where the girls are off
to?

PROFESSOR
Why, I just dropped the girls off at
summer camp this morning.

NARRATOR
Summer camp! Of course. It is summer
after all.

EXT. PINEWILLOW ACRES SUMMER CAMP – DAY

A slew of children dart back and forth amid a swath of
parents and camp councilors. The Powerpuff Girls sit at the
edge of a dock, dipping their feet in the water.

NARRATOR
Ahh, summer camp. A place to relax, have
fun and enjoy the pleasures of
unadulterated youth!

BUTTERCUP
This is boring. Why’d the Professor have
to send us here anyway?

BLOSSOM
He says that all kids go to summer camp.

BUTTERCUP
I bet he didn’t have to.

BUBBLES
I think it’s kind of fun. There’s flowers
and birds and (deep breath) fresh air!

BUTTERCUP
I’m out of here.

Buttercup stands to leave. Suddenly she sees something and
freezes in her tracks. She stares, misty eyed, at an unseen
object that has captivated her heart.

BUTTERCUP (CONT’D)
Who’s that?

Blossom and Bubbles look in the direction Buttercup is
staring.

BUBBLES
I don’t know.

BLOSSOM
Beats me.

Blossom and Bubbles return to dipping feet. Buttercup
continues to stare.

BUTTERCUP
(to herself)
He’s… He’s… adorable…

We now see she is staring at… Dexter!!

Dexter plods along behind Mom and Dad. Dee Dee happily leads
the family under the Pinewillow Acres Summer Camp sign toward
the registration office.

DEE DEE
(singing)
We’re going to camp! We’re going to camp!

DEXTER
Mooom. I don’t want to go to camp! I have
pressing matters of the gravest
proportions to attend to.

MOM
Now, now Dexter.

DEXTER
But Mom! I will miss out on precious
time with which to complete monumental
discoveries! I must get back to the lab!

The parents and Dee Dee freeze and turn to Dexter.

DAD
Come again, Dexter?

DEXTER
I ahh, heh, I said that… I am glad to be
here… I’ll lose some flab!

DAD
That’s the spirit, Dex!

Mom pinches Dexter’s cheek.

MOM
Oh Dexter. That’s just your baby fat!

DEXTER
Mother, please! I-

Dexter’s eyes widen as he spies Buttercup staring at him in
the distance. There is an instant rapport.

DEXTER (CONT’D)
I…

Dad takes a deep breath.

DAD
Ahh! You smell that? Reminds me of my
youth. Summers spent frolicking in the
green, green grass. Remember when we
first met, dear? I…

Dad’s voice fades as Dexter longingly looks into Buttercup’s
eyes. She returns his gaze.

DEXTER (V.O.)
Those eyes… I am transfixed! What is
happening to me!? Palms sweating…
Temperature rising… Could it be? No!
There is no such thing! Just chemicals
produced by the brain that-

Dexter whips out a photo of Spock.

DEXTER (CONT’D)
Oh father of logic, give me strength!

Dexter drops the photo of Spock.

DEXTER (CONT’D)
I cannot fight it! I am drawn to her. I
must go to her… to the one… to the one
that I love!!

Dexter is about to run to Buttercup when he’s grabbed by Dad.
SCRATCHING RECORD as Dexter is snapped out of his love filled
daze.

DAD
C’mon Dex! Let’s blaze a trail to the
registration office!

DEXTER
But…

Dexter reaches his hands out to Buttercup as he’s dragged
away past Dee Dee. Buttercup makes sure no one is watching
and holds her hand out to Dexter.

DEXTER (CONT’D)
(quietly)
I will find you… my love.

Dee Dee’s eyes widen and a grin stretches across her face.

DEE DEE
Dexter’s in love! Dexter’s in love!

DEXTER
Shut up, Dee Dee!!

EXT. VOLCANO TOP OBSERVATORY – TOWNSVILLE – DAY –
ESTABLISHING

INT. MOJO’S LAIR – DAY

Mojo is standing in front of a large view-screen, hands
behind back. The screen displays section after section of
Townsville.

MOJO
Where are they hiding? How am I supposed
to destroy the Powerpuff Girls if they
are not here to be destroyed by me, Mojo
Jojo? Computer, scan outside the city!

Images of the outer Townsville fringes zip across the screen.
We pass by a picture of Pinewillow Acres.

MOJO (CONT’D)
Go back!

The image returns to the campground.

MOJO (CONT’D)
Zoom in!

The image enlarges. We can see Dexter being dragged away,
reaching for Buttercup. Buttercup is reaching for Dexter.

MOJO (CONT’D)
Ohh, isn’t that sweet. So sweet it makes
me sick! I am sick it is so sweet! Wait!
Yes… It appears the Powerpuff Girls do
have a weakness! Summer Camp Crush! HA
HA HA!! Computer zoom in on the
pipsqueak!

The image zooms in on Dexter reaching for Buttercup. Dee Dee
is still bouncing around singing, Dexter’s in love, only
there is no sound.

Mojo’s eyes pop with recognition.

MOJO (CONT’D)
Could it be?!

Mojo puts on some spectacles and looks closer. He runs to a
chest and opens it. He digs through the chest and pulls out
a framed picture.

The picture is a group of scientists holding Dexter over
their heads triumphantly. Mojo is one of the scientists. A
banner in the background reads, “Dark Matter Research
Symposium”.

MOJO (CONT’D)
Yes! It is him! Dexter, the boy genius!
The genius that is a boy! BWA HA HA HA!
Now the Powerpuff Girls will fall before
our combined mental prowess! And the
world will be mine for it is the world I
will be ruling when it is the world I
shall claim as my own!! HA HA HA!!

EXT. PINEWILLOW ACRES SUMMER CAMP – NIGHT

Lights extinguish in the maze of cabins.

INT. DEXTER’S CABIN – NIGHT

Several young lads snooze and snore in the night. Dexter is
sitting up in bed beneath his blankets.

INT. UNDER DEXTER’S BLANKETS – NIGHT

Dexter is lit up by his wristwatch, a tiny computer.

DEXTER
Computer, locate my love.

WATCH COMPUTER
You’ll have to be more specific, Dexter.

DEXTER
The girl from earlier today… The one with
crystalline green eyes… Wearing the green
dress and black stripe that extenuated
her beauty… The one who stole my heart…

WATCH COMPUTER
Commencing scan… Scan complete.

DEXTER
Display results.

A holographic image of Buttercup standing on the campground
beach is shown. She grumpily kicks rocks into the water.

DEXTER (CONT’D)
Yeees, my darling… Computer bodyslide by
one!

INT. DEXTER’S CABIN – NIGHT

A flash lights the room from beneath Dexter’s blankets. The
blankets fall to the bed as Dexter disappears from below.

EXT. EXOTIC ISLAND – DAY

Dexter appears out of thin air with a flash. He clips some
tropical flowers and quickly arranges them.

Dexter taps in some coordinates on his watch computer.

DEXTER
Computer, bodyslide by one!

With a flash, Dexter disappears again.

EXT. PINEWILLOW ACRES SUMMER CAMP – BEACH – NIGHT

Buttercup is still on the beach. She huffs and sits on a
rock. She is very grumpy.

Dexter approaches nervously, holding the flowers behind his
back.

DEXTER
Ahh, Hello…

Buttercup turns to Dexter.

BUTTERCUP
Oh, it’s you…

DEXTER
Ahh, heh, heh, yes. My name is Dexter,
boy genius. Something troubles you?

BUTTERCUP
I hate it here. It’s so boring.

DEXTER
Perhaps these will bring a smile to your
face?

Dexter extends the flowers. Buttercup’s face softens and she
smiles. She takes the flowers and smells them.

BUTTERCUP
Thanks… I’m Buttercup.

Dexter plops down on the rock next to Buttercup. He looks at
her and shimmies closer. He shimmies closer a second time.
Buttercup shoots him a glance. Dexter pretends to be looking
the other direction.

Buttercup grabs Dexter and pulls him close. They put their
arms around each other.
The both take a deep breath and let out a sigh. They sit
together in silence looking up at the full moon.

EXT. PINEWILLOW ACRES SUMMER CAMP – BEACH – NIGHT

Dexter and Buttercup are still sitting, wrapped in each
other’s arms.

BUTTERCUP
I’m glad you understand. It’s not always
easy being a superhero. Saving the world
isn’t fun all the time.

DEXTER
You know, I’ve saved the world a few
times myself.

BUTTERCUP
You have?

DEXTER
I’m a boy genius. It comes with the
territory.

They both return to watching the moon.

DEXTER (CONT’D)
Boy, it sure is boring here.

BUTTERCUP
You said it. I wish we could go
somewhere more exciting.

A thought pops into Dexter’s head.

DEXTER
My sweet, any where in the world you want
to go… Name it and I shall take you
there.

BUTTERCUP
You serious?

DEXTER
Absolutely.

Buttercup ponders the possibilities. She leans over and
whispers into Dexter’s ear.

Dexter jumps to his feet and types in some coordinates.

DEXTER (CONT’D)
Computer! Bodyslide by two!

They disappear in a flash.

PHOTOGRAPHIC MONTAGE
1. Dexter and Buttercup lounging on a beach under a warm
sun.

2. Buttercup is holding Dexter. They’re flying through the
Grand Canyon. Dexter’s eyes are wide and he’s smiling.

3. They’re sitting on a rooftop in Paris watching fireworks
by the Eifel Tower.

4. They’re bouncing on the moon’s surface, dressed in space
suits.

5. Dexter is riding a mechanical bull. Buttercup is on the
ground laughing.

END MONTAGE

EXT. PINEWILLOW ACRES SUMMER CAMP – LAKESIDE DOCK – SUNRISE

Dexter and Buttercup appear on the dock with a flash of
light. They look completely tired and worn out from a long
night of partying.

DEXTER
Boy, I’m pooped.

Buttercup yawns and stretches.

BUTTERCUP
You said it.

DEXTER
We should go to our respective cabins and
catch a few winks before-

The sun suddenly rises and a slew of kids run out of their
cabins, hollering, playing and cheering.

BUTTERCUP
Ahh, man.

DEXTER
Drat. I suppose our love will give us
the strength to carry through the day.

Dexter and Buttercup look longingly into each other’s eyes.
Dexter puckers up for a kiss. Buttercup leans in…

Bubbles, Blossom and Dee Dee suddenly break out laughing
behind the two lovebirds. The kiss never makes it.

BUBBLES
You were kissing!

Buttercup is up, angry and on the defensive.

BUTTERCUP
We were not!

BLOSSOM
We saw you. You were kissing.

DEE DEE
Dexter has a girl friend! Dexter has a
girl friend!

Buttercup flies up a few feet, enraged.

BUTTERCUP
He’s not my boyfriend!! I – I don’t even
like him!

Buttercup zips off in a rage.

DEE DEE
Oh well, c’mon girls, let’s go swimming.

BUBBLES
Yeah!

Blossom and Bubbles pick Dee Dee up by the arms and fly away,
leaving the crushed Dexter alone.

Dexter’s lip quivers. His eyes water. He breaks down and
weeps into his hands.

DEXTER
Oh! Where did I go wrong!? My life, once
full of science and logic has given way
to the emotional trials and tribulations
of love and all her cruel underlings!
WHAAAAA! My love has left me… I am alone
in the world once more… I-

MOJO (O.C.)
Uhh, excuse me.

Dexter stifles his tears and looks around. He sees nobody.

DEXTER
Uh, hello?

MOJO (O.C.)
Over here!

Dexter sees Mojo’s eyes peering through a bush.

DEXTER
Do I know you?

Mojo pops his head out of the bush.

DEXTER (CONT’D)
Hey! You’re that monkey guy from the Dark
Matter Symposium.

MOJO
Yes, I am one and the same! Mojo Jojo!

DEXTER
What can I do for you, Mr. Jojo?

MOJO
I couldn’t help but overhear your
predicament.

DEXTER
It seems we scientists are destined to
live solitary lives. I must accept the
hand fate has dealt me and-

MOJO
I know how you can get her back.

DEXTER
You do? You do? Tell me! Please!

MOJO
The Powerpuff Girls only respect those
whose physical prowess and cunning is
rival to their own.

DEXTER
Really?

MOJO
Yes. You must defeat the Powerpuff Girls
at every turn if you are to regain the
love of Buttercup because only in their
ultimate defeat will the heart of
Buttercup belong to you because defeat is
the only-

DEXTER
Yeah, yeah, I got it already.

MOJO
Than you know what must be done?

DEXTER
I, Dexter, boy genius, with the help of
Mojo Jojo, monkey genius, will use our
combined brainpan mass to defeat the
Powerpuff Girls! And win back the heart
of my sweet, sweet love.

MOJO
Yessss…

END ACT I

ACT II

EXT. PINEWILLOW ACRES SUMMER CAMP – DAY

A group of children play a happy game of kickball. The
Powerpuff Girls are in the outfield, bases are loaded, Dexter
is at the plate, Dee Dee is pitching.

Dee Dee glares at Dexter. He snarls back. Dee Dee whips the
ball at Dexter and he moves in to kick it. As Dexter screams
in slow motion, heading toward the ball he, reaches down and
pushes a button on his watch.

WHIR! CLICK! CLANK! Dexter’s legs become massive metal cyborg
legs and he kicks the ball with incredible force!

WHUMP! Buttercup is creamed by the near light speed red orb
and is sent flying into a tree.

Dexter rounds the bases casually with his teammates and is
lifted over their heads in victory after he crosses home
plate.

Buttercup sits up and rubs her head. She sees Dexter bobbling
around on the top of the crowd of kids and growls.

Dexter is put on the ground and shuffles toward Buttercup,
very pleased with himself.

DEXTER
Not too shabby, eh my love?

BUTTERCUP
Hmph!

Buttercup crosses her arms defiantly and floats away. Dexter
watches her leave and his head sinks lower than his heart.

Mojo jumps out of a bush with an explosion of leaves.

MOJO
Did it work? Did it work?

DEXTER
No… my love will not have me.

MOJO
You need to think… bigger!

DEXTER
Really? You think? Cause I-

MOJO
Yes! Bigger! Much bigger! You must defeat
all the Powerpuff girls! Anyone can beat
just one of them, but to beat all of
them, now that’s a challenge! Trust me, I
know.

DEXTER
You’re right!

MOJO
I know!

DEXTER
Let’s do it!

Dexter runs away to prepare. Mojo rubs his hands together
fiendishly and laughs maniacally.

MOJO
Hahaha… HA HA HA… BWAAA HAAA HAA
HAAAAAA HAAAAAAAAA!

EXT. WOODS – DAY

Dee Dee is tiptoeing through the woods as quiet as possible,
while Blossom and Bubbles float silently behind her.

A small dark shadow jumps from tree to tree above them like a
beast stalking it’s prey. Blossom grabs the girls and looks
up at the trees.

BLOSSOM
Did you hear that? Something is in those
trees.

Bubbles ducks behind Blossom and Dee Dee.

BUBBLES
What is it? Sasquatch? Yeti? The
abominable snow man?!

Dee Dee screams with joy, but scares Blossom and Buttercup to
death. They scream too.

BLOSSOM
(scared and out of breath)
What? What is it?

DEE DEE
Loooook…

Dee Dee points through a break in the brush. Blossom and
Bubbles look through.

BLOSSOM
Their flag!

A red flag attached to a stick in the ground waves in the
air. No one else is around.

DEE DEE
And no one is guarding it. Talk about
easy!

BUBBLES
I’ll get it!

Bubbles launches through the brush toward the flag. Her eyes
bulge as she sees Dexter suddenly appear in front of her.
WHACK! Dexter tags Bubbles with a solid smack and she falls
to the ground.

Bubbles looks up, groaning, Dexter is gone!

Blossom and Dee Dee rush to Bubbles’ aid.

BLOSSOM
What happened?!

BUBBLES
D… D… Dexter.

DEE DEE
Dexter, where are you?! Come on out…
that is, unless you’re chicken!

BLOSSOM
Yeah! Come out into the open and fight
like a-

WHUSH, something dark moves through the bushes around them.
WHUSH! There it is again! Blossom and Dee Dee back against
each other, frightened.

Flash! Dexter appears next to Dee Dee and Blossom and smacks
them both.

DEXTER
Tag! Tag! I win! Get in jail!

Dexter points to a jail made of bamboo. It’s full of
children.

DEE DEE
You didn’t win yet! You have to capture
our flag to win!

Dexter gets a crafty look on his face.

DEXTER
You don’t say… And who is guarding your
flag, pray tell?

BLOSSOM
Buttercup is and you won’t get past her!

DEE DEE
Yeah!

Dexter smiles.

DEXTER
We’ll see about that… Computer,
bodyslide by one!

Flash! Dexter disappears.

EXT. WOODS – DAY

Dexter appears in the woods and peers around a tree. He can
see Buttercup, very disenchanted with the situation, but
guarding the blue flag nonetheless.

Dexter creeps quietly towards the flag. SNAP! He’s stepped on
a twig. Buttercup shoots her eyes towards Dexter’s hiding
place. She’s on to him.

Suddenly, Buttercup whooshes into the bush from where the
snap came from and the bush explodes. Dexter is not there!

DEXTER
HA! You don’t stand a chance, girlfriend!

Buttercup looks toward her flag and gasps. Dexter has the
flag in his hands. Buttercup grits her teeth.

BUTTERCUP
I’m… not… your… girlfriend!

Dexter sees the look of fury in Buttercup’s eyes and decides
it’s time to leave.

DEXTER
Computer! Bodyslide by one!

ZIP! Buttercup shoots toward Dexter but he disappears at the
last second. ZIP! ZIP ZIP! Buttercup streaks through the
woods nearly missing an appearing and disappearing Dexter
several times. ZIP! ZIP! ZIP!

EXT. WOODS – DAY

Dexter appears next to his own flag and holds the blue flag
in the air.

DEXTER
Victorious! HAH!

Buttercup whooshes to a stop in front of Dexter and sees that
her team has lost.

BUTTERCUP
Err, you cheated!

DEXTER
Nonsense. I won with science! Impressive,
is it not?

BUTTERCUP
Whatever!

Buttercup zips away leaving Dexter feeling sick to his
stomach.

DEXTER
Computer… Bodyslide by… ‘sniffle’…
one.

Dexter disappears with a flash, leaving the crowd of kids,
including Dee Dee, Bubbles and Blossom squashed in the bamboo
jail cell.

EXT. CANOE ON LAKE – DAY

Dexter and Mojo Jojo are sitting in a canoe on the lake
facing each other.

MOJO
Women are such fickle creatures! I can’t
believe she would do this to you, really!
But I’m there for you, buddy.

Mojo pats Dexter on the shoulder.

DEXTER
Am I that undesirable? Is there something
wrong with me? I don’t understand what I
did wrong.

MOJO
Ahh, you know… I probably shouldn’t
tell you this. You’re feeling bad enough already,
yeah, forget it. I can’t tell you.

DEXTER
What is it? Tell me, please!

MOJO
Oh all right. You know Bobby Bresnaham?

DEXTER
Yes, yes, what? Tell me!

MOJO
Well, I saw them…

Mojo leans over and whispers in Dexter’s ears. When he’s done
Dexter’s eyes begin to twitch. He suddenly bursts into tears.

DEXTER
Noooooooo!

MOJO
There, there now, cheer up. Say! I have
an idea!

Dexter looks up, anger in his eyes.

DEXTER
Tell me…

MOJO
I can’t.

Dexter leans forward.

DEXTER
Tell me…

MOJO
No, no… It’s too devious. It’s too-

DEXTER
Tell me now gosh-darn-it-all!!

Mojo smiles and leans forward, very pleased with himself.

MOJO
Okay.

EXT. GRASSY FIELD – DAY

Children run around yelling and having fun, playing
volleyball, kickball and tetherball. By the way they’re
laughing you’d think this was the most fun they’d ever had.

Dee Dee, Blossom and Bubbles are playing with toy ponies. A
few feet away, Buttercup is lying on the ground looking at
the sky.

As Buttercup looks at the clouds one of them takes the shape
of Dexter’s head. She gets a sad look on her face.

POOF! The cloud whooshes away as a giant robot bursts through
the cloud. Dexter is at the controls, Mojo is in the gunner’s
seat. Buttercup gasps.

CRASH! The robot lands on the field and kids scatter every
which way, screaming incoherently. Mojo opens fire with two
red laser beams, destroying cabins, trees and all the fun
games.

Dee Dee ducks and hides behind a rock. Blossom is ready to
attack.

BLOSSOM
Let’s go, girls!

Zip! Zip! Blossom and Bubbles rocket toward the robot.

INT. ROBOT CONTROL CENTER – DAY

Mojo maniacally shoots lasers at the fleeing children. Two
blinking spheres on a radar screen catch his attention.

MOJO
Dexter, incoming at two o’clock!

DEXTER
I’m on it!

Dexter works the controls with vigor.

EXT. GRASSY FIELD – DAY

The robot turns and faces Blossom and Bubbles, who are still
headed directly for the robot. BAM! BAM! Two rocket launchers
on the robot fire.

Two missiles soar toward Bubbles and Blossom and transform at
the last second. Bubble’s missile becomes and airborne
bubble, which traps Bubbles inside! Blossom’s missile becomes
a large carnivorous plant, which chomps down over her and
traps her.

Both fall to the ground, trapped.

INT. ROBOT CONTROL CENTER – DAY

Dexter and Mojo witness their success with the rockets.

MOJO
Yes!

DEXTER
All right!

They high five.

BEEP BEEP BEEP The radar shows one object incoming.

MOJO
Oh no! Buttercup!

DEXTER
Not to worry my fine simian friend! I’ve
got something special planned for her!

EXT. GRASSY FIELD – DAY

The robot turns and faces Buttercup, who is furious, and
launches a missile.

Buttercup expertly dodges the missile.

Laser beams fire from the robot’s eyes and nipples, all four
miss!

The robot shuffles it’s feet and spins it’s left arm in
classic Ali style. POUND! The robot catches Buttercup with a
right hook and sends her flying through a patch of trees.

When the smoke clears Buttercup can be seen lying amid fallen
trees. She’s out of it.

INT. ROBOT CONTROL CENTER – DAY

Dexter and Mojo celebrate.

DEXTER
Yes! We win!

MOJO
We beat the Power Puffs! We beat the
Power Puffs!

DEXTER
Computer, locate my love.

A screen pops up which shows Buttercup unconscious among the
fallen trees. Her leg twitches. Dexter is aghast at the
sight.

DEXTER (CONT’D)
Computer, life signs?

COMPUTER
Weak.

DEXTER
Oh, what have I done?
(puts hands on screen)
My love, how I have betrayed thee!
Computer! Bodyslide by one!

Dexter disappears. Mojo doesn’t notice at first, he’s too
busy doing a victory dance.

MOJO
Who’s da monkey? Mojo! Who beat the
Powerpuff Girls? Mojo! Who’s the smartest
evil genius in the world?

Mojo holds his hand to his ear in a cue for Dexter to yell
Mojo’s name, but Dexter is not there. Mojo opens his eyes in
surprise when he gets no response.

MOJO (CONT’D)
Wha- Dexter? Where did he go? Oh well, it
does not matter for I am victorious over
the Powerpuff girls because the Powerpuff
girls have fallen before me! HA HA HA!

EXT. FALLEN TREES – DAY

Buttercup is still knocked out on the pile of trees. Dexter
appears next to her. He kneels over her and picks up her
head.

DEXTER
Oh my sweet love, what have I done?

Buttercup opens her eyes.

DEXTER (CONT’D)
You’re alive!

BUTTERCUP
No thanks to you…

DEXTER
Can you ever forgive me, my sweet?

BUTTERCUP
Dexter, you’re partners with our arch
enemy! Mojo Jojo is a super villain!

DEXTER
(surprised)
He is?

BUTTERCUP
The sharp teeth. The big eyes and huge
head and the evil laugh! Duh!

Dexter thinks it over for a second and then grows angry.

DEXTER
I’ve been had! Mojo must be stopped!

BUTTERCUP
But how? He has your robot and my sisters
are trapped.

DEXTER
We’ll beat him together! With your might
and my science we make the perfect team!

Buttercup bursts up from the trees.

BUTTERCUP
You’re right! Let’s get him!

INT. ROBOT CONTROL CENTER – DAY

Mojo is working the controls.

MOJO
Now that the Powerpuff girls are out of
the picture I can-

BEEP BEEP The radar shows one target incoming.

MOJO (CONT’D)
What’s this? Computer, display incoming
projectile.

A screen pops up displaying Buttercup holding Dexter,
rocketing towards the robot. Mojo cringes and works the
controls quickly.

EXT. ROBOT – DAY

The robot fires a barrage of missiles, lasers and Chinese
stars. Buttercup dodges all of them. Dexter screams a battle
cry as they near the robot.

DEXTER
Do it! Do it now!

Buttercup stops mid-flight and whips Dexter at the robot.
Dexter is about to slam into the robot’s hull!

DEXTER (CONT’D)
Computer! Bodyslide by one!

Dexter disappears mid-flight.

INT. ROBOT CONTROL CENTER – DAY

Dexter suddenly appears in the control center. He’s still
moving with the force of Buttercup’s toss. Dexter slams into
Mojo and the two topple to the floor.

Flash! Dexter kicks Mojo!

Flash! Dexter punches Mojo’s teeth out!

Flash! Dexter cracks open Mojo’s brain covering with a karate
chop!

He gives Mojo a classic Powerpuff Girl style beating.

EXT. GRASSY FIELD – DAY

Blossom and Bubbles break free. Dee Dee comes out from
hiding. All just in time to see the robot fall over and crash
half in the field, half in the lake.

WHUMP! Mojo lands on the ground in front of Bubbles, Blossom,
Buttercup and Dee Dee. They all gasp and look up.

Dexter stands proudly on the leg of the fallen robot.
Buttercup’s heart melts. She flies up to Dexter.

BUTTERCUP
That was awesome! You were like POW!
WHAM!
(punching the air)
WHACK!
(softening)
You were… wonderful.

DEXTER
You think?

BUTTERCUP
I know.

Buttercup leans in to kiss Dexter. He puckers up. Dee Dee,
Bubbles and Blossom watch expectantly as though this were a
romantic movie.

Buttercup’s lips move closer to Dexter’s.

SCRATCHING RECORD

DAD (O.C.)
Hey gang! Looks like you had a bang up
time! But summer’s over! Time to go home!

Dexter is grabbed by Dad and thrown over his shoulder.

DEXTER
NOOOOOO!

Dad walks away with Dexter over his shoulder, reaching his
hand out to Buttercup. Dee Dee prances around Dad.

DEE DEE
(singing)
We’re going home! We’re going home!

Buttercup reaches her hand out to Dexter.

BUTTERCUP
There’s always ‘sniffle’ next summer!

DEXTER
(crying)
Goodbye… my love! I’ll never forget
you!

END ACT II

TAG

INT. DEXTER’S LAB – DAY

Dexter laboriously wrenches a bolt over and over again. His
face is sullen.

DEXTER
I will never find a love like her again. I am doomed
to spend life alone, in solitude…but such is the fate of
all great mi–

DING DONG

Dexter flinches at the sound.

DING DONG DING DONG

DEXTER
Ugh, computer, see who is at the door!

A cute little girl scout with big beautiful eyes and a box full of cookies is at the door.

Dexter sees the image and is shocked by her beauty.

DEXTER (CONT’D)
(enamored)
Who’s that? Hubba hubba!
