Waiting
(Television set, with "The Warren Show" title screen)
Announcer (A):
(intro music) And now back to "The Warren Show".
(Shot of Space Ghost's apartment, with Moltar and Zorak)
Space Ghost (SG):
Ooh, I love Warren!
Warren (W):
Tell us, Space, what are your superpowers?
Gary Owens (GO):
(as Space Ghost) I developed a few of my own, I, for example, can leap tall buildings in a single bound, I jump over buildings, I also have x-ray vision, and I can make change for a dollar.
Moltar (M):
(laughs)
Zorak (Z):
(laughs)
GO:
Thank you.
SG:
Wait a minute! I don't remember...
GO:
I can also bend my thumb, by the way.
SG:
I've never been on "Warren"! That guy's a replicant!
GO:
I can bend a spoon with my mind, but it has to be a plastic spoon. (TV laughter)
M:
Whoa!
M:
(laughs)
Z:
(laughs)
GO:
I can't do the real spoon. (TV applause)
SG:
This is such bull! (blasts TV set) I am super-unsatisfied to be replicated in this way! Super-unsatisfied! I need to get to the bottom of this. Come on, boys! Let's take a ride!
Z:
Pick me up a hitch-hiker, would'ya?
SG:
You're coming with us, Zorak. We'll go see Warren, then we'll swing by the department store and get you some new slacks.
Z:
And a hitch-hiker?
SG:
We'll see.
M:
Shotgun!
Z:
(slightly behind Moltar) Shotgun!
M:
Yes!
(Phantom Cruiser flies through space)
Z:
(hitting Moltar's seat from behind) (clank!)
M:
Stop it!
Z:
(clank!)
M:
Stop it!
SG:
(mocking) "I have x-ray vision and I can make change for a dollar!"
Z:
(clank!)
M:
Stop it!
Z:
(clank!)
M:
Stop it!
SG:
I could make change for five dollars if I had to.
Z:
(clank!)
M:
Stop it!
Z:
(clank!)
M:
Quit it!
(Cruiser approaches planetoid)
M:
Is this it?
Z:
(clank!)
M:
QUIT IT!
SG:
Yup, it's just like I remember it. Oh, look, they put in a Mr. Winters over there. You see, boys, Warren was my mentor. He was the wind beneath my cape. I learned so much that summer. Perhaps... too much. (sound of brakes) L-let's go back. (shifts into reverse, Phantom Cruiser backs up) What am I doing? (brakes) I love Warren! I need to see him. (shifts gears, goes forward again) But he hurts me. (brakes) But I've been replicated. (goes forward again) But he hurts me. (brakes) But, I have been replicated. (grinds gears) (goes forward again)
(The Cruiser finally lands; the hatch opens, Space Ghost emerges, to dramatic music)
SG:
(goes back inside) They were closed.
Z:
I wanna see!
SG:
There's nothing to see. Now, who wants new slacks?
Z:
I don't wear pants, and I don't know anyone who does!
M:
Yeah! We wanna see Warren!
SG:
(sighs) All right.
(Space Ghost, Zorak and Moltar leave the ship and enter a cave)
Monitor (M):
Welcome Space Ghost. Warren is expecting you.
(Dramatic sting music - Space Ghost's power bands disappear)
SG:
My power bands!
M:
You know the rules. No weapons.
Z:
Hey. You live here?
M:
Oh, I see you brought your mantis.
M:
(clears throat)
M:
And the fireman. How lucky.
Z:
Where's the tub? Can I have this? (sound of glass breaking) Uh, that was broke already.
SG:
Zorak...
Z:
Someone boiling vinegar?
SG:
Zorak!
Z:
What?
SG:
Shut your beak.
Z:
Before you... close it with medical sutures?
SG:
No, before I seal it using a powerful space-age adhesive, which I keep in my fanny pack.
M:
You know the rules. No fanny packs.
(Dramatic sting music - Space Ghost's fanny pack disappears)
SG:
My breakfast bars!
M:
Ladies and gentlemen of the arena, I give you... Warren.
(Warren rolls out, looking very much like a potted plant)
SG:
Well, it's been a long time.
W:
Yeah.
SG:
Warren, I've been replicated, man!
W:
Hmph. Do I know you?
SG:
You tell me, pal.
W:
No, I don't know you.
SG:
Warren, you had me on your show last night. But I wasn't on your show last night! I was right there in my living room, watching you having me on your show.
Z:
Nice bush.
W:
Ah, that's funny, mantis. Funny bugs like you, talkin' like that in my castle, end up, lookin' for their teeth, two blocks away, on Quinn Street.
SG:
Zorak, let me handle this, please.
Z:
Nice... bush.
W:
Listen! I can burn you, like the crazy world of Arthur Brown.
SG:
Zorak!
Z:
Nice... bush.
(Warren zaps Zorak with a destructo ray)
W:
We're both green, aren't we, Zorak? But I got rays, don't I!? Don't I? Don't I?
M:
You better answer him.
W:
Don't I, Zorak?
Z:
Ah, go fertilize yourself.
W:
(zaps Zorak again several times)
SG:
Warren, I've come many miles...
W:
(zaps Zorak again)
SG:
... to set myself before you today to find out why you've betrayed our sacred covenant.
W:
Do what now?
SG:
Who was that you had on your show, because it wasn't me.
W:
Aw, yeah. (chuckles) That was just Gary.
SG:
Gary, huh?
W:
Yeah.
SG:
Ga-ry.
W:
Yeah. (chuckles)
SG:
Garrrrrrry.
W:
Yep.
SG:
Are you tryin' to shuck me?
W:
Listen to me! Over there in the corner, you'll find a mystical cauldron. Conjure up Gary and he will appear before you. He knows the answers, to the questions that vex you so. Now I must adjourn, to my sunny spot, ah! (starts to roll away)
SG:
Wait, you didn't answer my question! I didn't come here to talk to a cauldron! Warren, wait!
M:
He seemed like a good enough guy.
Z:
Yeah, very personable.
SG:
Come on, let's hold hands and conjure up this joker.
(Zorak, Space Ghost and Moltar are holding hands in front of a steaming cauldron)
SG:
Gary... Om... (wolf howls in background) Hey, you guys have to do it too, or it won't work.
Z:
Oh.
SG:
Om...
Z:
Om...
M:
Gary... Gary...
Z:
Om...
SG:
Om... Om...
Z:
Gary... Gary...
M:
Gary...
SG:
Gary...
Z:
Gary...
SG:
Om...
M:
Gary...
Z:
Om...
SG:
Gary...
Z:
Om...
M:
Om... Gary...
SG:
Okay.
Z:
Om...
SG:
Got it.
Z:
Om...
SG:
We're good. We got it.
GO:
(in cauldron, as Space Ghost) (laughs) Thank you.
SG:
It's him!
M:
Whoa!
Z:
It's Space Ghost!
GO:
It is indeed.
SG:
It is not indeed! Do you know who I am? Gary? Take a good look. I'm Space Ghost!
GO:
(coughs) You're what?
SG:
That's right, Gary. I'm the real Space Ghost.
GO:
So am I.
SG:
No, see, I'm the one who flew around the galaxy saving planets, not you! Where do you get off being me?
GO:
Uh, in the early days, back when, uh, when Space Ghost was first born, they let me play Space Ghost. And that was what, what a thrill.
SG:
Uh, who's "they"?
GO:
Mr. Joe Barbera, and Mr. Fred Silverman, gentlemen who chose me to play you.
SG:
Nobody plays me, Jack! I play me.
M:
Hey Gary, who played me?
GO:
Moltar? Moltar, I have a picture of you. I have a picture of Zorak over there, when he was just a mild mutant.
Z:
Hey! Remember when I smashed your camera with that rock?
GO:
Oh, yes. It was, what wonder days.
M:
Gary? Can you come home with us, and... be our new dad?
SG:
Now, wait just a second! Can't you see? Are ya all blind? Moltar! Zorak! This is all just some demented mind trick brought on by Warren!
GO:
I still have got the inviso-belt, I've got that in the trunk of the car right now.
SG:
Listen up, you deluded old freak. Don't make me use my power bands on you.
M:
Space Ghost, uh... you don't have your power bands.
SG:
Stay out of this, Moltar. The time has come for me to put a lid on this cosmic crackpot.
GO:
This looks like real trouble. Hand me that veeblefetzer.
Z:
Here ya go, buddy. (hands Gary a blast rifle)
SG:
You're counting on hitting me with that veeblefetzer, aren't you?
GO:
Oh, yes, yes.
SG:
Because then you will become me, right.
GO:
Oh, yes, yes.
SG:
That's just what I thought. Well, here's something you hadn't counted on, Gary. This set of auxiliary power bands, that I had hidden in my space cavity. Prepare for one of my harmful rays. (adjusts his power bands) Hold on a second. (bands make electronic noises; Space Ghost adjusts bands again) (quietly) You're gonna regret having messed with me. (presses button, but no ray, just a clunking sound) Turning it on. (makes sound like electronic flash charging) (quietly) Prepare... for one of my... harmful rays.
GO:
(as Gary) Hey, sock it to me!
SG:
Pucker up, Gary! (blasts Gary, whose hand is over his ear a la "Laugh-In") (smoke clears) Moltar, haul that to the Phantom Cruiser.
W:
(slides into view) No!! You've destroyed my creation!
SG:
Warren, you used that greasy replicant to lure me back here, didn't you?
W:
Yeah, you know it.
SG:
But why, Warren?
W:
Well... (laughs) (dramatic sting music) Never mind why. The past is just the future that already happened. Now come on over here and I'll cradle you.
M:
(walks toward Warren)
W:
(to Moltar) Not you! (to Space Ghost) You!
SG:
I don't understand, Warren.
W:
Often we fear what we don't understand, Space Ghost. Come closer to me!
SG:
(steps closer to Warren)
W:
(sniffs) Closer!
SG:
(to himself: I must be out of my nut! What am I doing here? And why is Warren smelling me?)
W:
How're ya folks and all them? (edges closer to Space Ghost)
SG:
They're... all... kind of... uh... uh...
W:
Why don't you take your cape off? Ha!
SG:
No... please...
W:
Listen to me! Love and fear are often... the same thing. (sniffs)
SG:
Oh, okay. Well, thank you.
W:
Don't thank me. Just... (sniffs) hold me.
SG:
(touches Warren; smiles)
W:
Mmmmm! Prime rib!
SG:
Wait, wait a second...
(TV shows static and "Space Ghost Coast to Coast" theme music; static gives way to Warren at Space Ghost's desk)
W:
(on TV) Greetings citizens!
SG:
Hey, what the...
W:
I'm Warren! Is everybody gettin' enough carbon dioxide?
(Dramatic sting music, zoom in to Space Ghost's face)
SG:
Aha! That's why you brought me here! So you could steal my show! But you already have a show! Why, Warren, why?
W:
Well, you know, uh... (laughs) I just felt like it.
SG:
Well, you greedy manipulating yard shrub. I'm not going to let your Warren impostinator steal my show right out from under me (reaches for his power bands)
W:
But Space Ghost... How do you know that I'm not the impostinator?
SG:
Well... you've lost me there, Warren. And now you must pay, you hateful hedge. (blasts Warren)
M:
You've destroyed Warren. I'm tellin'. You've destroyed Warren. I'm tellin'.
SG:
Tell 'em this. (blasts monitor)
M:
You've destroyed Warren. I'm tell- (Blam!)
SG:
When you see 'em in Poland.
(Black screen with title: "The End")
(TV in Space Ghost's living room shows "The End" title)
SG:
That was good. What else is on?
(Credits roll)
W:
Ha!
