ACT SIX

EXT. MAIN BUILDING - NIGHT

A blue blur speeds to the building.

CLOSE ON ENTERANCE

The blur stops and we see Sonic, Sonia, and Manic standing right in front of the door that doesn't seem to be a way to open it.

SONIC Okay, we're here.

He tries to push on the door, but it doesn't open.

SONIC It wont open!

SONIA We need to think of another way to enter.

ON MANIC

Manic looks on the ground and smiles. He bends over and picks up a nail.

SONIA (V.O.)(CONT.) Look around and see if there are any windows.

Manic walks off frame.

ON SONIC AND SONIA

SONIA (CONT.) Or try to find some underground passage way, or we could--

MANIC (V.O.) (interrupts) Or we could try the front.

WIDER

We see Manic standing next to an unlocked door while tossing the nail in his hand.

SONIC Whoa, how did ya do that, bro?

MANIC I was taught how to pick locks.

SONIA Enough chit-chat, we got to get Cyrus and Trevor!

The three hedgehogs run inside the building leaving the door open behind them.

CUT TO:

EXT. OTHER SIDE OF BUILDING - SAME TIME

On the other side of the building, Aleena runs up to the wall and looks around. She then gets a grip on some of the holes in the wall and begins climbing up a few feet to the window.

INT. BUILDING - ON WINDOW

We see Aleena climb in through the window and inside the building.

ALEENA Finally my children reunited. I just better hope they stay that way.

She stands up and runs down the hall.

INT. CORRIDOR

The hedgehog are tip-towing down the corridor.

CLOSE TO FLOOR

We see a LAZER BEAM across the bottom of the floor. Sonic's feet step onver it missing it. Sonia's feet step over also missing it. But Manic's foot steps right in it!

INT. COMPUTER ROOM

ALARMS sound off.

Robotnik runs inside and looks at his monitors.

ROBOTNIK What is it?

ON MONITORS

We see the hedgehogs on one monitor.

ROBOTNIK It's them! The hedgehogs!

Sleet and Dingo step behind Robotnik.

SLEET Want us to take care of them, sir?

Robotnik turns and smiles at them.

ROBOTNIK Please do!

CUT TO:

INT. PRISON HALLWAY

Aleena steps in the prison corridor just to see a bunch of empty cells.

CLOSE ON ALEENA

Aleena pulls back her hood and looks around. A voice is heard behind her.

VOICE (V.O.) Aleena, it's me.

Aleena turns around. We PAN OVER to see who it was. It was Tails.

ALEENA You certainly like to pop out of everywhere, don't ya.

TAILS Hobby of mine.

ALEENA I know my kids are in the building. If they want Cyrus and Trevor out, I got to help them.

Aleena turns around and begins to pick up a jog down the hall.

TAILS Aleena, wait! The prophacy!

After hearing that, Aleena stops in her tracks. She slowly turns around to face Tails.

ALEENA Oh yeah, but if Robotnik captures them, then it wont come true.

TAILS Wrong, the Oracle says it will come true!

ALEENA But... but... I can't bare to see them hurt or captured or... my children.

As she speaks, she slowly gets on one knee and begins sobbing.

CLOSER

Aleena puts her palm on her face as she tears. Tails places his arm around Aleena in comfort.

TAILS It's okay. It'll be fine. The prophacy doesn't say you're not allowd to see me. I'll be with Sonic, Sonia, and Manic. We can talk about how well they're doing. We could exchange messages to each other. That way, you'll still be in touch with your children and you'll still promise the prophacy.

Aleena looks up at him. She then smiles.

ALEENA Thanks, Tails. Wish I could adopt you as another son.

TAILS Me too, that way, you can have four children but only suffer the pain of childbirth of three!

Aleena giggled at that remark.

TAILS So, come on and stand up. It'll be all beter someday.

Tails helps Aleena stand, even though Aleena is taller than him.

WIDER

TAILS Now that you feel beter, what are you going to do?

CLOSE ON ALEENA'S FACE

Aleena SMERKS and EVIL GRIN.

ALEENA I'm going to kiss some robutt.

CUT TO:

INT. PRISON HALL

We see Cyrus and Trevor in their cell. Then Sonic, Sonia, and Manic SCREACH to a halt in front of it.

SONIC Don't worry, guys, we'll get ya out of there! Maniac!

Manic grows angry again.

MANIC It's Manic!

SONIC Sorry. Can you pick this lock?

MANIC Sure thing, bro.

Manic pulls out that nail from his fanny pack, picks the cell lock and opens it.

MANIC Nothing to it.

Sonia runs in.

SONIA Come on, guys!

TREVOR (dumb voice) Ooh, you're pretty.

ON SONIA

Sonia smiles.

SONIA Thanks, I--

Sonia then grows wide-eyed.

FAST ZOOM IN on Sonia's pupil.

As the CAM moves into Sonia's eye, we see a blury faint image of the past. We see Lady Windamire being taken away. Then Dingo looks at Sonia.

DINGO Ooh, pretty.

FAST ZOOM OUT from Sonia's eye.

Now we're back to Sonia standing inside the cell.

SONIA Uh oh. You tried to kidnap Windamire?!

ON CYRUS AND TREVOR

CYRUS Ah man! Sleet, she found out!

Sleet's voice is heard somewhere.

SLEET (V.O.) Dingo! You idiot! You spoiled the surprise attack!

A lazer is shot from somewhere and it hits both Cyrus and Trevor. Cyrus and Trevor morph into Dingo!

ON HEDGEHOGS

The hedgehogs gasp!

SONIC Whoa! How did he do that?

Sleet jumps and LANDS right behind the hedgehogs.

SLEET He can do a lot of stuff I make him do. Like turn into a television snake!

He presses his remote and a lazer shoots at Dingo.

ON DINGO

Dingo turns into a snake with a TV as his tail.

WIDER

Dingo ENCOILS the hedgehogs preventing them from escape.

SLEET Now watch this!

Sleet presses on his remote again and the lazer hits the TV attacked to Dingo.

ON TV

On the screen, we see Cyrus and Trevor in two separate robotosizers.

SLEET Give yourselves up and we'll spare them.

ON SONIC

Sonic struggles to get out of Dingo's grip.

SONIC Who are you two anyway?

ON SLEET

SLEET Oh, I'm sorry, we never met before, have we? My name is Sleet. This is my counterpart, Dingo.

ON HEDGEHOGS AND DINGO

Dingo stupidly WAVES to the hedgehogs in a "hello" matter.

ON SLEET

We work for Doctor Robotnik, our supreme ruler! We want your surrender and we promise we wont hurt your friends. What do you say.

ON MANIC

Manic smiles evily.

MANIC I say this!

WIDER

We hear a POKE sound, and Dingo instantly JUMPS SKY HIGH releasing the hedgehog.

DINGO Yeow!

CLOSE ON MANIC

Manic holds out his lock-picking nail in between his fingers.

WIDER

SONIC Smooth work, bro. Now let's grab our socks and hit the rocks!

With that, Sonic grabs Sonia and Manic's wrists and speeds away out of the dungeon place.

ANOTHER ANGLE

Sleet chases them.

SLEET Come back here!

Before Sleet moved any further, Dingo FALLS on him.

SLEET Get off of me, you moron!

DINGO But it hurt!

SLEET Not as much as what I'll do to you if you don't get off me!

INT. CORRIDOR

The hedgehogs speed down when they hear a voice over the intercom.

ALEENA (V.O.) (over intercom) My children. Sonic, Sonia, Manic.

After hearing that, Sonic SCRATCHES to a haul.

SONIA Mother?

ALEENA (V.O.) (over intercom) Yeah, it's me. My name is Queen Aleena Hedgehog.

MANIC Where are you?

INT. INTERCOM ROOM

Aleena sits in the intercom rom with an intercom in one hand and a lazer gun in the other. She sits in the chair kind of teenager-like with her feet on the desk and leaning back.

ALEENA Well, if I'm speaking from an intercom, I'm in the intercom room.

INT. MAIN ROOM

Robotnik perks up his head hearing Aleena on the intercom.

ALEENA (V.O.) (over intercom) But you can't come to me. Your main focus is Cyrus and Trevor.

INT. PRISON HALL

Sleet and Dingo are still lying on the ground (Dingo is still on top of Sleet) and they're looking toward the ceeling where an intercom speaker is.

ALEENA (V.O.) (over intercom) If they're not in the Sleet and Dingo mock-up, they're in the other prison station. Get there. But before you do, I want you to remember this.

INT. HALL

SONIC Sure, what?

ALEENA (V.O.) (over intercom) Cyrus and Trevor will tell you something that I told them. Once you do the obvious, look carefully around the front and you may see me.

MANIC Sure, mom. We will.

Sonic SCRATCHES his head.

INT INTERCOM ROOM

ALEENA You'll know what I mean on second notice. But get to Cyrus and Trevor now!

INT. HALL

SONIC Let's roll!

Sonic grabs Sonia and Manic's wrists and speeds off. The CAM stays in the same location and Aleena is still heard.

ALEENA (V.O.) (over intercom) Oh, Sheriff Robotnik.

INT. MAIN HALL

Robotnik looks up at the intercoms angrely.

ALEENA (V.O.) (over intercom) Can you hear me?

ROBOTNIK Yeah, I hear you.

ALEENA (V.O.) (over intercom) Don't even bother trying to get me. you're no match for my children. I may be old, but I'm tricky like Tails is.

ROBOTNIK You know that annoying two-tailed freak?!

INT. HALL

We see Sleet and Dingo running down the halls.

SLEET The intercom room is up ahead.

ALEENA (V.O.) (over intercom) Of course I know him.

INT. INTERCOM ROOM

CLOSE ON ALEENA'S FACE

Aleena has a look a bit like that of an EVIL VILLIAN with a SLYISH GRIN as the intercom is close to her mouth. All you can see is her eyes down to mer mouth, nothing more.

ALEENA (conive-like voice) I know a lot about him. I know a lot about you, too. I know a bunch about my children. You could probably say I know everything. (witch-like giggle)

INT. HALL

Sleet and Dingo tip-toe to the door that says "INTERCOM ROOM."

ALEENA (V.O.) (over intercom) You can't beat the hedgehogs. The prophacy will be fulfilled. And another thing. (pause)

ON DOOR

Sleet and Dingo are standing in front of it.

ALEENA (V.O.) (over intercom) You will never find me or get to me!

INT. INTERCOM ROOM

Sleet and Dingo burst in the intercom room. Upon entering, their faces grow with horror.

THEIR P.O.V.

All they see is an empty chair and an intercom on the desk.

ON SLEET AND DINGO

They look terrified.

ALEENA (V.O.) Aww, whatsa mattah? Did I trick you?

Sleet and Dingo turn their heads.

ANOTHER ANGLE

They see Aleena's evil-looking face on large security screen's all mixed to show one image.

ALEENA See what I mean?

Sleet SHOOTS the screens and half bust. Aleena's eyes CREEP to the other screens.

ALEENA Give it up! You can't win! If you want me, look over on the yellow lined hallway.

WIDER

Sleet and Dingo look to the hallway and they go wide-eyed.

THEIR P.O.V.

We see Aleena leaning on the wall waving at them. She has a lazer gun in one hand, and an intercom in the other.

WIDER

SLEET Get her!

They run, but are instantly cut off by a CLOSING METAL DOOR. The door closes before Sleet and Dingo preventing them from getting to Aleena. There is just one small glass window in the door.

CLOSER

We see Aleena stick her face through the glass window and smiles at Sleet and Dingo evily. Then she GIGGLES. After that, she turns and runs away.

INT. PRISON HALL

Sonic, Sonia, and Manic SCREACH to a hault right in front of a cell door. They look in.

THEIR P.O.V.

We see Cyrus and Trevor are in the cell.

CYRUS About time!

EXT. CELL

Sonic faces Manic and steps back.

SONIC Manic, do the honors, if you please.

Manic walks to the cell and picks the lock with his nail.

ANOTHER ANGLE

The cell door opens and Cyrus and Trevor run out.

TREVOR Thank you!

SONIA Save the thank's for later. Let's get out of here!

Sonic grabs onto Sonia and Manic's wrists. Manic grabs onto Cyrus's wrist and Sonia grabs Trevor's wrist. Sonic feet blurred and they ZIPPED OFF FRAME.

INT. MAIN CORRIDOR

Robotnik is walking through his corridor.

ALEENA (V.O.) Hey, Robotnik!

Robotnik stops and turns around in fear.

ROBOTNIK'S P.O.V.

Aleena is standing at the end of the corridor aiming her lazer gun at him.

ALEENA How dare you take over Mobotropolice!

She FIRES the lazer!

WIDER

The lazer misses Robotnik. Robotnik PIVOTS and runs the opposite direction.

ON ALEENA

Aleena chases him, eyes full of rage.

SERIES OF SHOTS

Aleena chases Robotnik through the hallway and trying to fire her lazer gun at him. (S.B. NOTE: This is from the very beginning of the episode!)

INT. INTERCOM ROOM

Sleet and Dingo PRY open the doors.

SLEET Come on, you moron!

Sleet runs off frame. PAN DOWN to see that Dingo is a JACK that's bracing the door open.

DINGO Uh, Sleet!

We hear Sleet GROWL. Then a lazer hits Dingo and morphs him back to normal. Dingo gets up and follows Sleet.

INT. MAIN ROOM

Sleet and Dingo run in the room. Later, Robotnik enters the room panting.

SLEET Your greatness, what are you doing here?

ROBOTNIK It's Aleena! She's--

Robotnik turns his head and sees that Aleena's gone.

DINGO If she's not here. What about the other hedgehogs?

SLEET And the prisoners?

CLOSE ON ROBOTNIK

Robotnik growls angrely.

ROBOTNIK I'll get those hedgehogs one day!... ONE DAY!

CUT TO:

EXT. MAIN BUILDING

ROBOTNIK (V.O.) ONE DAY!!!

As he yells it, the hedgehog, Cyrus and Trevor ZIP on and off frame! We can hear their LAUGHING as they speed.

ON THE HEDGEHOGS AND CHARACTERS

The background is a blur as they speed.

SONIC (calling) Hey! Guys! Mom said that you would tell us something.

CYRUS (calling back) Just head down this route and you'll see it.

WIPE TO:

EXT. UNDERGROUND BASE - NIGHT

Sonic, Sonia, and Manic are standing behind their UNDERGROUND BASE. Next to it is the UNDERGROUND VAN, Sonia's MOTORCYCLE and Manic's HOVERBOARD. Cyrus and Trevor stand there as they present them.

CYRUS Your mom told us to give these to you once you three reunited.

MANIC Radical! We have a cool happenin' dude for a mom!

TREVOR Enjoy your gifts and home. We'll be seeing ya. Bye.

Cyrus and Trevor walk off frame.

ON HEDGEHOGS

Sonic is looking at the van happily.

SONIC So, now what?

SONIA (V.O.) Oh my gosh!

ON SONIA

Sonia is looking at a picture as she stands next to her motorcycle. Sonic and Manic stand next to Sonia to see the picture.

SONIC What is it, sis?

SONIA Don't I look cute?

ON PICTURE

We see it's a picture of Aleena holding onto her three 1-year-olds on her arms. Each hedgehog is wearing diapers.

ON HEDGEHOGS

Their faces grow with "Aww".

SONIC That must be mom.

Sonic drops a tear, but still holds his smile.

MANIC Think of it, we'll be with her someday.

SONIC And overthrow Robotnik! But until then.

CLOSER

We see all three hedgehogs in closer view.

SONIC (CONT.) My sister, Sonia... my brother, Manic...

SONIA Sonic...

SONIC We'll be one happy family.

MANIC Group hug!

The three engage in a GROUP HUG. Sonia KISSES Sonic and Manic on the foreheads.

SONIA I love you guys.

SONIC / MANIC I love you, too.

ZOOM OUT

We see most of the Underground Base while the hedgehogs hug. To the side, we see two silouetes.

ANOTHER ANGLE

We see Tails and Aleena watching the hedgehogs with tears in their eyes.

ALEENA (V.O.) My children have reunited.

DISSOLVE TO.

PAN TO SKY

We see the three colored stars in the sky, one blue, one pink, and one green.

ALEENA (V.O.)(CONT.) As long as they're happy, I am happy. Someday, we'll all reunite and take down Robotnik. (pause) And I was wrong... we still are the happiest family in Mobotropolice.

We hear the music to the lulliby that Aleena sung to them in the background.

ALEENA(V.O.)(CONT.) Sonic, Sonia, Manic... I love you.

Upon those words, we FADE OUT.

THE END
