- 1. Grrr!
- 2. Traditional. Nice, Sonic.
- 3. Very derivative, Tails.
- 4. Sticks,
yours just screams "fun".
- 5. And Knuckles.
- 6. It's so hard to choose a winner.
- 7. It probably doesn't matter, Amy.
- 8. Because the beach
is nature's hourglass
- 9. and time will wipe clean what
we have built as everlasting?
- 10. No, because
of the ginormous storm.
- 11. Agh!
- 12. Quick, let's get to my shack.
- 13. - I don't think so.
- It's safer in the storm.
- 14. Is that place up to code?
- 15. Then we'll go to Amy's.
- 16. That could be fun, I guess.
- 17. It can be a slumber party
and we'll stay up late and...
- 18. Hey! Wait for me!
- 19. So it will be a slumber party.
- 20. We'll stay up late,
- 21. eat snacks,
play truth or dare...
- 22. - Truth: where are the snacks?
- I dare you to get them for us.
- 23. Not sure you guys
understand truth or dare,
- 24. but I can whip up
some hors d'oeuvres.
- 25. Hors d'oeuvres? I wanted snacks.
I hate this game.
- 26. Here you go.
- 27. Quiche Lorraine,
vegetarian spring rolls
- 28. and an assortment of baked
Camembert and Brie cheeses
- 29. on rosemary focaccia toast.
- 30. Yeah!
- 31. Not bad. Could have used
some ketchup, though.
- 32. - Agh!
- Ooh, lightning phobia pile!
- 33. Whoa! Agghh!
- 34. It's OK. A glass horse is just
as good as a glass unicorn.
- 35. It's coming down pretty hard out
there. It can't get any worse.
- 36. - It's time for arts and crafts!
- I spoke too soon.
- 37. Using a sprig of holly and just
a few everyday household items
- 38. that you have to order
from a craft catalogue,
- 39. you too can create a lovely
rustic wicker centrepiece.
- 40. How's everyone else's
centrepieces coming along?
- 41. And now
for the pièce de résistance.
- 42. Look at this mess you made!
- 43. Don't you mean,
"Look at this art we made"?
- 44. OK. This is OK.
- 45. Now one of my favourite party
activities... clean-up time!
- 46. Come on, Amy,
we want to do something fun
- 47. like pole-vaulting
over the couch
- 48. or shot-putting Tails
across the room.
- 49. No! You guys have made
a big enough mess already.
- 50. Don't touch anything,
don't do anything,
- 51. just sit there quietly
until the storm passes.
- 52. - Who's ready for popovers?
- 53. There's got to be something fun
to do around here.
- 54. Huh?
- 55. Well, well, well...
- 56. "A Rose Without Thorns,
a play in three acts."
- 57. - And guess who wrote it.
- 58. - No, not you. Amy.
- 59. "An empty stool
sits under a spotlight
- 60. as the lovely, charismatic
and super-popular Annie Rose
- 61. appears through the curtain
and pours herself a lemonade."
- 62. "It was years since I first met
that mysterious stranger,
- 63. the one with fur
the colour of the ocean."
- 64. Who do we know
with ocean-coloured fur?
- 65. - Me?
- Well, it can't be me.
- 66. While I am mysterious,
I'm more of a royal blue.
- 67. "Sonar enters and crosses
the stage in his scarlet loafers.
- 68. 'Hey, Annie,
I'm gonna play volleyball.
- 69. I play against myself because
nobody else can keep up.'"
- 70. See? That doesn't sound
anything like me.
- 71. He's an egomaniac but without
the awesomeness to back it up.
- 72. "Thump, thump, thump.
- 73. A knock at the door like the
sound of someone big and strong
- 74. but unable to figure out
a simple doorknob.
- 75. Annie Rose sashays to the door
- 76. revealing Shoulders, the hulking
dullard of a farm hand."
- 77. Me?
- 78. "He strides towards Annie but is
distracted by a shiny object."
- 79. It doesn't say that.
Give it here.
- 80. Wait. What was I about to do?
- 81. "But before Annie can reply,
- 82. a naive young fox
named Taylor enters,
- 83. cowering
beneath the legs of Sonar."
- 84. Hey, I don't cower.
- 85. - Ohh!
- 86. Curse you, irony.
- 87. "Just when all hope is lost,
- 88. enter Twigs,
the crazy-eyed feral badger.
- 89. 'Miss Annie,
the robot apocalypse is nigh.
- 90. I intercepted a transmission
from my toaster.'"
- 91. This is just ridiculous.
- 92. Everyone knows when
the robo-apocalypse arrives
- 93. it's the can-openers
that will transmit signals.
- 94. Toaster!
- 95. What are you doing?
- 96. You're reading my play?
That's an invasion of my privacy.
- 97. We have a right to read it since
we happen to be the characters.
- 98. - It's not based on you guys.
- Oh, no?
- 99. Gimme gimme gimme!
- 100. Oh, like Twigs
isn't exactly like you?
- 101. She'd be wiped out by the
robo-apocalypse in two seconds
- 102. taking advice from toasters.
- 103. Can you believe these people?
- 104. Guys, stop fighting!
- 105. Was that you talking, Taylor?
- 106. I couldn't see you
in Sonic's shadow.
- 107. Good one, Knucks.
- 108. At least I'm not an egomaniac,
- 109. That character wasn't like me.
- 110. He wasn't nearly as awesome
as I am.
- 111. You know what's not awesome?
- 112. Rummaging through my drawers
and reading my manuscript.
- 113. When this storm blows over,
we should go our separate ways.
- 114. Why wait?
I'm going to the kitchen.
- 115. I will make and consume all the
dainty hors d'oeuvres I want...
- 116. without ketchup!
- 117. Fine!
- 118. Ugh!
- 119. What brings you from Workbenchia
to the Kingdom of Television?
- 120. The new Wolf Sidekick special
is about to come on.
- 121. I come bearing this necklace
made of the finest paperclips.
- 122. I offer it in exchange
for some screen time.
- 123. Your paperclip necklace pleases
me. I grant you two minutes.
- 124. Lady Rose of House Kitchen,
- 125. in exchange for safe passage
to your refrigerator
- 126. I offer you these blankets,
that you may be warm.
- 127. Knuckles, don't let
the fact that I built a fort
- 128. fool you into thinking
I'm playing this game.
- 129. Oh, come on.
- 130. I'm so hungry I'll eat those
horse doctors you force-fed us.
- 131. I don't need blankets. It's
not even that cold. Go away!
- 132. Shoehorn! Hey-oh!
- 133. Let's see what else
we got in here.
- 134. You like this?
- 135. He's so relatable.
He speaks for all sidekicks.
- 136. Brrr. It's getting cold in here.
- 137. Maybe I can build some sort
of heater back in Workbenchia.
- 138. Halt! Who goes there?
- 139. Sticks, get out of my fort!
- 140. Not yours any more.
I took it in a daring raid.
- 141. No one was defending it,
but still, Workbenchia is mine.
- 142. Now go! But before you do,
where's the heat in this joint?
- 143. The heat! Of course. Worry not,
friends, I know where to go.
- 144. But it'll be a long, perilous
journey, so we must make haste.
- 145. Well, we're here.
- 146. Knuckles, we need blankets. In
exchange I'll let you watch TV.
- 147. Television! Who needs it?
- 148. Don't ever say that again!
- 149. Come on, Knuckles. It's cold
and you've got all the blankets.
- 150. Fools! Your offerings
mean nothing to me.
- 151. The thermostat
is under my control
- 152. and only munchies
will end this winter.
- 153. Ha! Who's the dullard now?
- 154. No, seriously, I'd like to know.
- 155. If you think I'm giving in
to your ploy, you're wrong.
- 156. - Turn off the air conditioning.
- 157. For too long
we've allowed Knuckles
- 158. to control that thermostat
with an iron fist.
- 159. We must topple our oppressor
from his cushiony perch.
- 160. Join with me and you'll never
want for comfy blankets again.
- 161. Freedom!
- 162. Oh. So it's war you want, eh?
- 163. Eat feathers, numbskull!
- 164. If I can eat feathers,
who needs the refrigerator?
- 165. - Take that!
- Hey, watch it!
- 166. Hey, storm's over. Yo, Amy,
let's head back to the beach.
- 167. I can't believe you guys.
- 168. You criticise my snacks
but eat them,
- 169. make a mockery
of arts and crafts time
- 170. and make fun of my play.
- 171. And now you're gonna leave
without cleaning up?
- 172. Ohh!
- 173. Ugh!
- 174. - We owe someone an apology.
- 175. Amy's right.
We took things too far.
- 176. You know,
Amy's play wasn't all that bad.
- 177. Actually, I kind of liked Twigs.
- 178. We can overlook the toaster
as a youthful indiscretion.
- 179. Shoulders wasn't so bad either.
- 180. I mean, he's no me...
but neither am I.
- 181. Or is it?
- 182. Yeah, it's almost as if they
were cartoon versions of us.
- 183. Yeah.
- 184. I know
how we can make it up to Amy.
- 185. Come on, Ames, you'll love it.
- 186. Unless it's a clean house
with an unbroken unicorn,
- 187. I'm not interested.
- 188. Ladies and gentlemen,
thank you for coming
- 189. to the premiere performance
of "A Rose Without Thorns",
- 190. written by our very own,
very talented Amy Rose.
- 191. It was years since I first met
that mysterious stranger
- 192. with fur
the colour of the ocean.
- 193. Hey, Annie,
I'm gonna go play volleyball.
- 194. I play against myself
because nobody else can keep up,
- 195. but you can watch if you like.
- 196. What am I saying?
Of course you'd like to.
- 197. Annie, let me take the wheel.
- 198. You'll never make it
through the storm.
- 199. A woman can do anything
a man can do.
- 200. And I will sing it from the
mountain tops if I have to...
- 201. This rose has no thorns!
- 202. What an amazing reception.
I'd like to thank—
- 203. Whoa! Who wants to go to Amy's
house to ride out the storm?
- 204. Me?
- 205. Eclair Media
