[Theme song; opening sequence]
Opens on city scene; a crowded sidewalk. A small, doglike creature races between pedestrians legs.
Pedestrians: Hey! Huh? What the--Easy there! Hey, I'm shopping here!
The pedestrians are yelling. Two big, hulking men are chasing the creature while shoving pedestrians out of the way. The creature knocks a bunch of flags to the sidewalk and the men slow down to tiptoe between them, avoiding stepping on the flags. The creature runs between a delivery guy and street vendor.
Delivery Guy: Whoa!
Delivery Guy: Not cool, dude!
The Men knock him down.
Delivery Guy: You gotta watch where you're going, man!
The creature runs down an alley and encounters a wall.
Man 1: This way
The creature turns to see two men approaching, hands out menacingly. They leap, but the creature glows and suddenly vanishes. The men hit the ground and the creature reappears far behind them. It runs off and the men stand, growling. On the rooftop. A party is taking place. The man tosses a briefcase full of money onto the table in front of rich man.
Man: Huh? (laughs evilly)
Atop of the roof spire, are four figures.
They leap all landing on the building ledge. One shoots a cable across to metal beam on the building on the other side of the rich man’s party. And attaches the other end of the cable to the wall next to him.
Raph: (into communicator) Yellow Submarine, are we clear?
April: (off-screen) Affirmative, Red Rover
Raph: (into communicator) Copy
Raph turns to his brothers.
Raph: Right, boys, it's go time
All of them attach clamps to the cable and begin sliding across. Below them, the rich man is still laughing. The Leader holds up his hand as a signal. There is a screeching sound, but all four glide right over the party. They approach a building next to it and the leader points down. All of them jump from the cable. Then from the shadows their are four mutant turtles.
Raph, Leo, Donnie & Mikey: Cannonball!
They land in the pool. The water flies up in a huge jet. April yells triumphantly and holds out a phone only to be drenched in water.
April: Whoo! Whoo-hoo!
They are all dancing and whooping in the now empty pool.
Mikey: Ha! You must be this rad to ride that ride
Donnie: Uh, based on our velocity and entry angle, I concur. We rad
April: You guys crushed it! Give me five!
They leap out to join her.
April: Or three
Raph: Couldn't have done it without you, April. Our girl with the plan
Leo: And keys to the roof
Mikey: Let's go bungee dunk on the hoops at Rucker Park
April: Game on! Just one thing first
April tosses two warning signs on the ground.
April: "Wet Floor" and "Dry Pool". Our work is done here. Donnie, can I hitch a ride?
Donnie: No probbles
Donnie turns his back to her and gestures towards his shell with his thumb. April jumps onto his shell, which immediately opens to provide a seat and handlebars. The rotors whirl and they lift off from the rooftop, followed by the other three turtles.
April: Uh-huh! Uh-huh!
As Raph is jumping down, he spots the little doglike creature, who is shivering and whimpering in a construction yard.
Raph: Huh? Aww
Raph slams face first into a building.
Raph crawls up to the roof.
Raph: Hey! Hey, guys, hold up
Raph points down at the creature.
Raph: Poor thing looks lost
Raph jumps down and the others fallow. Raph lands heavily behind the creature and startles it.
Raph: Aww. Hey, little guy
Raph starts talking in baby talk.
Raph: What you doing here?
Raph makes kissing noises.
Raph: Come to big Raphie
The others are laughing.
Raph: What? Pets love me, all right? I am at one with the animals
The creature growls and leaps at Raph’s face, clawing him up and then jumps into April’s arms. It begins licking her.
April: Aww. I didn't get this drenched from the cannonball
Mikey: It looks so weird. What is it?
Donnie: Maybe it's some kind of nuclear St. Bernard
Donnie touches small globe attached to its collar. A angry scoff draws their attention to two figures nearby. Everyone gasps.
Raph: Ooh! Humans!
All four turtles duck behind Cleo.
Raph: (whispering) Initiate plan H
Raph, Leo and Mikey come out of hiding.
Leo: Um, excuse me, sirs. Can you direct us to the local science fiction convention that we are currently dressed for?
Mikey: (nasally) Snazzy alien turtle outfits, huh?
Donnie is stepping in front of Mikey.
Donnie: We are just typical, normal humans who got lost in the middle of our normal, everyday human lives. Nailed it
Leo: (quietly) Dude, you gotta make it to rehearsal
Man 1: (Russian accent) Give to me creature. How you say...Pretty please...Or I'll destroy you
Raph: Really? You think you're gonna step to our friend? Rookie mistake, hoss
April: And if you step to my friends for stepping to you for st--stepping to me? You're gonna have to step to me. Mm-kay?
Man 1: You do not intimidate us, with or without your fake nerd voices
Donnie: That was actually my real voice
Raph: Well, you better get intimidated, 'cause we're like nothing you've ever seen
Donnie: What's wrong with my voice?
Man 1: Mm?
Both men start to glow and purple stuff flows around their bodies.
The turtles & April: Whoa! No way!
Raph: Jumping Jack Flash!
The turtles and April react as the men begin to transform into huge monsters astride monstrous dogs. Garm and Freki.
Leo: So...You guys from Jersey?
Mikey: Really, Leo?
Leo: What? I can't make a joke in the middle of the craziest thing ever? That's how I cope
All of the brothers pull their weapons.
Raph: This is our chance to finally use these babies. Weapons ahoy!
Donnie: We agreed to reserve "ahoy" for ship-based adventures, pal, please
The dogs are snarling and barking race towards them.
Donnie: Guys, I got this
Donnie's staff expands with jets on either end. He throws it at oncoming bad guys.
It begins whirling sporadically.
Donnie: Oh, no. Ah, no, n--oh, no, no. That's so bad
The creature hisses and disappears.
April: Dog thingy!
The creature reappears in the air and clamps it's mouth on to the runway staff, and blinks out while holding staff. The creature appears above Donnie and drops with the staff into his hands.
Donnie: Hey, it plays fetch
The creature blinks out again and returns to Cleo.
Donnie: And teleports, which is--oh, my gosh, it teleports!
One of the monsters points their weapon at Donnie and it begins to glow. There is a zapping sound.
Donnie crashes into a pile of cinderblocks.
Donnie: Pro tip: the inexplicable glow-y wave--extraordinarily painful
Raph: All right, Mikey. You take the one that looks like a broken toaster. I'll take the guy that looks like a fancy trash can
A weapon comes down in front of Raph, throwing him backwards.
Mikey: They look exactly the same, and they don't look like either of those things!
The monster chases Raph and Mikey starts to run, looking behind him. The dog creature chases Mikey.
Leo: Hey, where are you going?
A snarling sound makes him look back over his shoulder. The other monster is astride a dog creature.
Leo: You had to ruin cannonball day
Leo rushes at the monster.
Metallic ringing. Leo swings his weapons, then a flash of light. Leo is standing there with two broken swords. Leo moans.
Leo: My swords!
The monster laughs and Leo flings the swords at his head, connecting with his helmet. The monster snarls. Leo is jumping around.
Leo: I don't need weapons to beat you! I got my rad skills!
Leo jumps onto the side of a concrete truck and flips in the air beneath the monster’s weapon, and then falls flat on his face. Raph takes a hit and slides backwards. Mikey leaps down next to him.
Raph: Mikey, ninja mode
Raph and Mikey ease back into the shadows. The monster growls and then lifts his weapon, pointing it at Raph, who is clearly visible behind a steel girder. Mikey is clinging to the one above him.
Raph: Okay, uh, there's a chance he can still see us
The monster blasts them.
Raph: Ah! Plan double-B!
Mikey retracts back into his shell and Raph grabs him.
Raph throws Mikey at the monster, but it reaches up and catches him. Mikey’s limbs appear and he pulls nunchucks, shouting as he spins them. Mikey begins striking the monster’s arm, but it doesn’t budge as the nunchucks bounce off and hit Mikey.
Mikey: Ha! Ho! Take that!
Mikey’s face is all puffy and bruised as he stops swinging.
Mikey: Had enough yet?
The monster releases Mikey into a flowing purple orb and flings him away. He loses his grip on the nunchucks, which the monster catches in one hand and crushes.
Mickey: My 'chucks!
Raph: Hey, why don't you pick on someone my size?
Raph pulls his sais out as a bell dings. They are facing off. The monster snaps his finger and a dog leaps at Raph, who runs screaming.
Raph: Ah! Ooh! Ah! Ah! Ah!
The dog clamps onto his head, flings him around, and then throws him. He hits the dirt and begins coughing. Raph reaches for his sai, which is sticking up from the ground, but a purplish blast hits his weapon and disintegrates it, and then the other one which is nearby. Raph lets out a high-pitched cry. The monster hits him and throws him atop of Donnie, who is lying on top of Mikey and Leo.
April: Hey, trash can and toaster boy!
The bricks smashes against the monster’s chest.
April: If you know what's good for you, you'll leave my friends...
April picks up a brick. The monster lifts his hands and a orb forms around the little doglike creature they saved.
April: (quietly) Alone. What the--
The creature tries to teleport out of the orb, but can’t. With a wave of his hand, the monster pulls the orb through the air towards it, but April hangs on.
The monster grabs the orb from April and then blasts her backwards.
Garm: I have the agent and the vial
Garm spins around and gestures.
A giant M appears on the brick wall nearby and an opening appears.
A delivery guy rings a bicycle bell and the turtles move aside.
Delivery Guy: Sweet shortcut. Wait! This is not a shortcut!
The delivery guy rides right into the opening and falls far through a glowing tunnel, screaming.
Mikey: Ah! Good to know
The creature whines and the monster rides into opening.
April: The dog thingy!
April gives chase.
The turtles chase her.
Raph: April! No!
The wall closes after April enters. Raph slams face first into bricks.
Raph: Oh. April!
Leo: I think she's okay, 'cause there's no, like, April bits on the ground
Raph looks on the other side of the brick wall.
Raph: Hey, April, are your bits on the other side of the wall?
Raph looks at Donnie.
Raph: How do we get her out of there?
Donnie: And--equally important--where is "there"?
Mikey is standing and staring at the giant M on the wall. He snaps his fingers.
Mikey: Oh, hey! I've seen this before! In fact, we all have
They return to an object on a shelf in the lair.
Mikey: In Splinter's do-not-touch cabinet
The turtles and April are all behind a chair where Splinter sits watching TV on a big screen. The cabinet is to his right.
Raph: You're right. It's just like the symbol those creeps have
Mikey: Should we just ask him for it?
Leo: And what do we say if he asks why we want it? That we need it to go after our best friend, who disappeared into a wall after our priceless weapons were destroyed by mystical jogger guys?
Raph slams his hand down on Leo's head.
Raph: Shh! Okay, here's the plan. We gotta get Splinter out of the room
The TV voice-over is in Japanese. The turtles slide in front of the screen and bow respectfully.
Raph: Hey, Pop. Any chance we could have the living room tonight?
Splinter is slurping milk through a straw from the carton.
Splinter laughs hysterically.
Splinter: And I thought purple was the funny one!
Donnie: I told you guys I was the funniest. What if I hooked it up so that you could watch in bed, huh? Wouldn't that be even lazier?
Splinter: No! My butt is asleep, just how I like it. Now, leave me be! They're about to break out the scorpions!
Splinter laughs as the TV voice-over begins again. The turtles slide out of sight. All of the turtles are squatting on the floor behind his chair.
Raph: Plan one didn't work. New plan. All right, listen up
Raph slaps a paper on the table and grabs a crayon.
Raph: We need ten chickens, a gallon of rubber cement, and--
Leo holds up the compass object from Splinter's cabinet.
Leo: Leon's got it
Raph: How'd you get it?
Leo: You know he always passes out after milk and cake
They peek over top of chair. Splinter lays there snoring. Back at the construction site. At the brick wall. Raph holds up compass in front of the wall.
Donnie: A few hours ago, I would've called this foolish and impossible. Now I just call it foolish
Mikey: Say what you want, Donnie. Raph'll pull it off, 'cause if he doesn't, we'll lose our best friend forever
Leo: Mikey, don't say that. You know he chokes under pressure
Donnie: Leo, he's even more self-conscious when you talk about it
Mikey: And then you can smell his fear
Raph is getting more nervous as they talk. He finally spins on them.
Raph: Stop talking about my fear stink!
Raph dramatically points the compass at the wall but nothing happens. He pushes it closer and shakes the compass, but nothing happens. He punches the bricks repeatedly while the brothers look on.
Raph: Come on! Stupid wall!
Raph throws the compass at it. It bounces back to hit him and he falls.
Mikey: How about we let the artist of the crew take a poke at it?
Mikey has caught the compass.
Leo: I say give him a shot. I mean, he can't do any worse, respectfully
Mikey approaches the wall and holds the compass close to it.
The pointer starts spinning and a glow appears, creating a matrix. Mikey cries out triumphantly and quickly draws the M on the wall. The opening appears and he gazes down through the glowing tunnel.
Donnie: You beautiful fools. It worked!
Raph: All I had to do was believe in myself
Leo: Okay, uh, what do we do now?
They all are looking at Raph.
Raph leaps into the tunnel. His brothers follow.
They fall through and land on the ground below with pained grunts, except for Leo, who lands on his feet.
Leo: Land safely...aha! Oh, whoa!
The turtles are expressing amazement as they look around at a strange world full of creatures.
All: Whoa, whoa
Leo: I can smell Raph's amazement stink
All: Whoa. This is crazy
Donnie: Exactly what I expected
Raph: Are you kidding me?
They turn around.
April: Hey, guys, over here
They rush to her and hug her.
Raph: Missed you!
Raph: Donnie, where are we?
Donnie: According to my calculations, we are in a tertiary meta-verse
April: Actually, I've been exploring, and we're in a mystic hidden city deep under New York!
Donnie: That was my second guess
Leo: So where's the dog thingy?
April: He's in there
They all look towards a round structure high up on a hill. A metal door is sliding open and the group is standing there. They all gasp and make amazed noises.
Donnie: Oh, look at the color scheme. Whoa, I'd love to do my lab in this style
Raph: Hey, there's the little guy. And the delivery guy, too!
The creature and delivery guy are in separate cages. The creature keeps trying to portal out, unsuccessfully.
Raph: We gotta help them get out!
April stops Raph as he starts to jump down to floor below.
April: Someone's coming
Baron Draxum appears, stopping in front of the cages.
Delivery Guy: If you're the guy that keeps calling about the calamari, fine, it's pig butts! But the crab cakes are real
Draxum: I assure you, I have no interest in your petty cakes of crab
A small creature leaps from Draxum’s shoulder onto the front of the cage.
Muninn: But we would love to hear more about those pig butts
Delivery Guy: Ah!
Draxum squats in front of the creatures cage and reaches inside.
Draxum: So nice of you to return my vial
Draxum yanks the globe off it's neck and approaches the delivery guy again.
Draxum: You are about to be part of an experiment that will change the very nature of humanity
Delivery Guy: All right!
With the turtles and April.
Draxum uncorks the globe and pours green liquid contents into a giant tank full of Oozesquitoes. The liquid flows up to the cylinder and electricity begins to spark of tubes.
April: This dude looks like trouble
Raph: Yeah, and if I've learned anything from "Jupiter Jim" movies, glowing green usually equals bad
The green liquid multiplies in size and Oozesquitoes begin drinking it. Draxum extracts one of the Oozesquitoes from the container and walks back to the caged delivery guy.
Delivery Guy: So...
Draxum gestures and the cage walls turn into vines which wrap around the delivery guy and lift him up.
Delivery Guy: Is this gonna hurt?
Draxum: It will...if I'm doing it right
The oozesquito latches on to the delivery guy’s face and pumps green liquid into him. The oozesquito leaves a red dot on his forehead.
Delivery Guy: Hey, that wasn't so--oh, ow. Okay, this part hurts
The delivery guy begins transforming.
Delivery Guy: This part--oh! This part hurts. Ah, that hurts! Oh!
With the turtles and April.
Raph: What's happening to him?
April: That is messed up
The delivery guy is transformed and is making gurgling noises. The turtles and April react with groans and grimaces.
Donnie: Yeah, jury's in. That was imitation crab
Delivery/Crab Guy: I just got used to acne. Now this?
The delivery/crab guy screams and runs out of the room.
Muninn: (laughs) Should we go after him, boss?
DraxumL The mutation worked, just like it did all those years ago
With the turtles and April.
Raph: Mutation? You mean like us? (gasps) Could we be--
Mikey: Part imitation crab?
Donnie laughs then sobers.
Donnie: You are not kidding, are you?
Draxum is standing over the creatures cage.
I'll deal with you next. We can't let that sheep-horned weirdo do anything to that dog! But except for Donnie, we're out of weapons. Note to you: Next time, make your weapons out of high-grade titanium. Guys, who needs weapons? We're ninjas! Leo's got his mad skills, nobody flips better than Mikey, Donnie's got that big old brain, - and I got, uh - A friend who knows where there's a room full of weapons! Ah, thank goodness. We were so dead. [ROCK MUSIC]
- No way! - Whoa! It's like if magic and science had a baby! Oh, yeah! - These'll do.
Raph:Hey, yo, guys! How about we take the glow-y ones?
Oh Oh, dibs on the sword! Oh, boy! Hot soup! Boom! Huh-ha!
April: What about you, Donnie? Don't you want a glow-y weapon?
Donnie: No, I'm good.
I'll never let you go. This looks interesting, though. Oh, yeah! Let's go save that dog thingy! [DISQUIETING MUSIC] [LAUGHING] Finally, after all these years, I can continue my work. [LOUD IMPACTS] - Yah! - Whoa! [LAUGHS] What? All right, you incredibly unusually buff bookworm, give us the little guy, and you'll walk out of here with your horns still attached. Shouldn't we also stop him from creating crab-men? Good note. Okay, give us the little guy, - stop creating crab-men - Imitation crabmen. - [EXASPERATED SIGH] - Okay, good note. Stop creating imitation crab-men And a ride home, and a limo with a hot tub and pizza! Stop creating imitation crab-men - and you'll walk out of here - You're beautiful. Raph, why don't you take it from the top again? Here goes. First, you apologize - to the dog thingy - Let's do this! April O'Neil!
Mikey: Oh, my gosh. She just ran in.
I hate this! I hate this! Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa! Gah! [OMINOUS MUSIC] - Whoa! - Oh, my gosh. - Whoa, whoa. - Dude, seriously? Ah! It looked at me! [ALL GROANING] [ROARS] This one's got a little spice. Capture those specimens! Cowabunga! [ROCK MUSIC] Yah! [ROARS] Hot soup! Oof! Whoa! Whoa! No, no, no. No, no, no, no. - Look out, guys! - Whoa! Whoa! Ha! Nailed it! Accidentally impressive. With a little bit of training, you could be as formidable as I'd hoped. [COUGHS] It's okay! I got this! Okay, well, great, and since you're surrendering [LAUGHS] Baron Draxum does not surrender. Okay, well, when he get here, we'll deal with him oh, ho, ho, I see. You're doing that whole "sinister talking in the third person" thing. Only Raph can use the third person! All right, guys, time to put our training to use. What training? You guys have been training? [DRAMATIC MUSIC] Cowabunga! And that's why Baron Draxum Ooh! Oh. I'm sorry, boss. Ha! - April! You did not just do that to our friend! Ha! Huh? [LAUGHS] Whoa. Magic weapon Whoa! Whoa! Mikey, that was awesome. How'd you do that?
Mikey:I don't know, man. I was just swinging my weapon, like this, and all of a sudden [LAUGHS] Just like that.
Raph:Let me try. Magic weapon, magic weapon, magic weapon, magic weapon! Ah, yeah. Magic weapon! Ooh! Ow. Mine works, too.
Leo:Can't wait to find out what mine does! [UNEASY LAUGH] Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa! Whoa! Ah! Get. . me. . off this ride!
Donnie:Whoa! And that's why I like fighting the old-fashioned way: with impossibly futuristic high-tech weaponry.
Just like I planned it! Look out!
Baron:You fight like untrained buffoons, but under me, you could become true warriors! [DRAMATIC MUSIC]
Mikey:We don't spend enough quality time together.
Donnie:Oh, please not now, Mikey.
How are we gonna save the dog thingy now? Donnie's on it. [VISOR ALARM BLARING]
Baron:Wait a second! Ah! Turtles, why are you trying to stop my plans?
We are all in this together!
Donnie:Ah, hey, I don't know if this is part of your plan, but the lab's about to explode. Aw, nuts.
April:Little guy! Can you do your thing and get us out of here?
Mikey:Oh, no! Splinter's doohickey!
April: Man..Are you okay, boy? Or girl? You sure were good through all that mayhem. Hey, Mayhem! That's a cute name.
Raph:We just defeated a boss villain. We're heroes! We deserve a name like Mad Dogs.
Leo:Mad dogs? You don't think something like Mutant Ninja Turtle Teens or I don't know. Maybe we'll keep brainstorming.
Huh. That can't be good. We should go. People's blinds are starting to open.
