S: Skipper; K: Kowalski; P: Private; R: Rico; M: Marlene; J: Julien; Mau: Maurice; Mort: Mort.
The penguins are in their habitat testing a machine constructed by Kowalski. It is a fruit dispenser. Since most of the animals in the zoo eat fruit, they decided to open a business. Plus they were getting a little tired of always running out of fish and wanted a fishy refreshing drink.
S: Good Job Kowalski!!! Let’s put this baby up and see how we do!
Private puts a big drawing of fruit and a small picture of a fish. They were charging the animals fish for fruit. Julien sees the sign and runs to the penguins.
J: Umm…Can I play with your very pretty fruity machine???
S: Ok that’ll be 1 fish ;)
J: Fish! I don’t have fish! It is so salty and stinky and gross!
K: Fruit is not very tasty to us either but we have it!
J: I want the fruit! I’m hungry and feeding time doesn’t come for 5 hours!!!
S: K then guess you’ll have to wait!!!
Julien frowns at them and runs back to his kingdom. His stomach begins growling as he sees the gorillas, the elephant, and the monkeys lining up in the penguins habitat ready to eat juicy coconut, oranges, guavas and his favorite-mango. Julien watched with rage. He was so angry he decided to do something bad.
J: Maurice give me my spirit rock, my spirit cage and my spirit knife!!! I will crush someone tonight!!!
Mau: Ok your majesty. But just out of curiosity who are you going to crush???
J: The silly annoying penguins! They decided not to give me fruit because I did not give them fish!
Mau: You know I’m no expert but stores work that way!
J: What!!! Are you questioning me Maurice!!! Do you want to join the penguins!
Mau: No, your majesty! I’m sorry I asked!
J: Ok now go before I change my mind and make you clean Mort!
Mort: Yay! I want to be squeaky clean!!!
Julien grabs a piece of paper and a marker. He writes his plan and buries it in the some leaves and soil. He laughs evily and runs to find Maurice.
The penguins are asleep when skipper hears a noise.
P: Help us
Skipper jumps out of bed and gets into position.
S: My crew!!! I’m here! What’s going on???
He turns his head and sees the empty beds. Almonds are stuffed into his mouth and half a coconut gets on him as a hat. All he sees is a blur and he feels hair arm wrapped around him. As the thief holding him runs, he tries every thing to slip out, but he can’t. He suddenly looks down and sees legs. Lemur legs.
S: Ringtail! What are you doing? Why are you capturing me?
There is no answer. Julien stops running and pushes skipper into a wooden cage.
Skipper grunts and pulls the bars but they are too stiff and strong for him to pull off.
Julien walks in front of him and pulls a cage that has the other three penguins.
S: Rico! Knife! You can break us out of here!!!
Rico tries to vomit but he can’t. Julien pushes a bunch of tools that where in Rico’s stomach with his foot.
S: Ringtail! What is going on here!!!
J: Well you see, I was hungry, very hungry and you didn’t give me any of your delicious fruit!
S: It’s just business, man!
J: Well I don’t care! You will be in this cage, hungry, until you die!
S: Eggs and bacon man! We didn’t kill you!
J: Oh well, good bye, freaks!
Julien walks away.
K: This just doesn’t compute! Julien couldn’t of done this to us after all we have done for him! If it wasn’t for us, he wouldn’t even be here!
P: What are we going to do! I am too young to die!
S: Don’t worry boys, I have a plan.
Julien comes back before skipper begins to speak.
J: No, you don’t have a plan, because I will bury you in 2 different holes in the ground.
3 days later
Marlene goes into the penguin’s habitat to borrow some scissors to re-decorate her habitat. She notices they are not in there and sees one of Julien’s hairs. She runs to his habitat.
M: Julien the penguins are missing!!! Do you know anything about this???
J: Oh Hi, Marlene! No I haven’t seen them.
He laughs suspiciously. Marlene stares at him and begins to walk away to see if she can find any clues. As she walks she hears the crackle of paper and begins to dig. She sees Julien’s plan and gasps. She runs into the penguin’s habitat and gathers some gear. She sees a small box that beeps. It has the name of all 4 penguins. She clicks on skipper and the tracking device begins to search. She follow to see where it goes. She stands on some dirt in the monkey habitat and begins to dig. She sees skipper sleeping. She breaks through the wood and begins to shake skipper.
S: Need fish now…
Marlene opens a small bag and pulls out one fish. Skipper eats it and gets up.
M: What happened?
S: We didn’t give Ringtail fruit so he locked us in here to die.
M: How long have you been in here?
S: 3 days
M: I’m sorry I didn’t look for you guys sooner! I should of known something was wrong since I didn’t see you guys practicing outside!!!
S: Don’t worry about it. By the way, does every animal stare at us while we practice?
Marlene begins to stutter.
M: Ummm...Yeah! You guys some good moves! You do!!! Um… Let’s go find the others!
S: Nice save...
They both go and find the other penguins. When they get there it was too late. They shook them until only private woke up. Marlene sticks a fish in his mouth and helps skipper carry the other two animals.
P: I don’t think they are going to get up.
S: They still have pulse.
M: How are we going to wake them up.
Skipper waddles over to Kowalski’s options clip board. Skipper sniffed it and the marker’s ink was still fresh. There was a picture of the penguins drinking mango and papaya juice that had been under the ray that made the fish and mort big. Skipper and Marlene went to make the juice as private looked at the instructions for the ray.
Marlene squished the papaya and Skipper squished the mango. They talked as they worked.
M: So do you think this I going to work?
S: Affirmative! I’m 100% sure!
M: Ok then, but don’t you think we should add something else in this?
S: No, this should be enough.
Marlene smiles and pours the juice into a cup. Skipper does the same. The both hurry to private.
P: I got it skipper! Just press these buttons and Voila!
S: Bravissimo Private!
M: Here you go!
She places the cup under the ray and skipper presses the buttons. The juice gets enriched with vitamins and they pour it in the penguin’s beaks. They wake up.
K: What in the name of Galileo is going on in here!
R: Owwwww! (Whines)
Skipper explains the story to them on how Marlene had saved their lives.
They all hug her and give her some of the fish from the profit of the machine. Skipper and Marlene go outside. Skipper thankfully hugs her.
S: Thank you…If it wasn’t for you we would be dead.
M: Don’t worry, you guys have done plenty of stuff for me
S: It’s what we do…
M: No it isn’t, you guys do much more dangerous things that what you have done for me! Getting Julien’s crown, rescuing mort, finding Maurice, fighting a killer whale. What you guys have done for me was something small like keeping me from being scared, helping me get mort and other things. OMGosh! I’m special!
S: You’ve been special Marlene…
M: That’s so sweet!!!
S: Don’t worry me an Kowalski will teach you how to draw. We will teach you how to speak correctly. We will even teach you how to eat!
Skipper begins to laugh and Marlene gives an angered look!
M: I should of left you in there!!!
