NARRATION MAY BE READ DURING THIS SCRIPT (ONLY NECESSARY ACTION)

NARRATOR

In our last episode...

FART

COMMISSIONER

Aghhh. I can't breath! I can't see! 

Knocking over things

LUSCIOUS

As you can see my farts can be used as a smoke screen, military-grade tear gas as well as an uncontrollable laxative. Do you still doubt the power of Luscious The Black Tigress?

COMMISSIONER

No! No! Your powers are truly remarkable! 

LUSCIOUS

You will issue me that superhero permit, in addition, you will pay me a hefty salary every week.

COMMISSIONER

Yes yes, Black Tigress I'll give you the permit and the money. You can start tomorrow, just don't fart anymore. And please open a window!

LUSCIOUS

Have a nice day Commissioner Jordan.

NARRATOR

Luscious exits out the door.

The Commissioner quickly crawls over to his desk. Picks up the phone and pushes a few buttons.

PHONE BUTTONS BEING PUSHED.

COMMISSIONER

(weak and desperate, into phone)

Mighty Moe, Thunder Girl, we've got a big problem.

NARRATOR

Commissioner Jordan gasping for air, passes out on the floor. Now, Episode II.

It's not long before the door flings open. MIGHTY MOE and THUNDER GIRL enter urgently.

MIGHTY MOE

Mighty Moe

THUNDER GIRL

And Thunder Girl are here. We came as soon as we got your call--

Thunder Girl and Mighty Moe notice the strong stench in the air.

THUNDER GIRL

Oh my good Lord, what is the horrible smell?

(to Mighty Moe)

Mighty Moe, hurry, open a window.

Mighty Moe opens a window. 

THUNDER GIRL

Commissioner Jordan. What's happened? Are you alright?

Thunder Girl slaps the Commissioner around until he finally comes too.

COMMISSIONER JORDAN

Yes, you can stop slapping me now.

THUNDER GIRL

Oh, sorry.

COMMISSIONER JORDAN

Mighty Moe, Thunder Girl, thank God you're here. Another ten seconds and I would've been... Would somebody please open a window.

MIGHTY MOE

I just did.

They help the Commissioner to his feat.

THUNDER GIRL

I'm feeling a little light-headed myself.

MIGHTY MOE

My eyes feel like they're on fire.

THUNDER GIRL

What happened?

MIGHTY MOE

Yeah, why does it smell like an over-populated petting zoo in here? I'm gonna open the window some more.

COMMISSIONER JORDAN

But it's already open as wide as it--

WINDOW BREAKING

MIGHTY MOE

That's better.

COMMISSIONER JORDAN

Ever heard of Luscious The Black Tigress?

THUNDER GIRL

Yes, but she's on planet Gray-pu-pon-da on the other side of the Gragzonian Milky Way.

COMMISSIONER JORDAN

Not any more.

MIGHTY MOE

Wait a minute, you're telling us that she's here, on Earth?

COMMISSIONER JORDAN

That's exactly what I'm telling you.

She was standing right there, smack-dab in the middle of my office applying for a super hero permit.

THUNDER GIRL

Hold on a dang-gone minute. Applying for a permit in our city?

MIGHTY MOE

We're the protectors around here dang-snapit!

COMMISSIONER JORDAN

I know I know, don't you think I told her that? But when I denied her permit she just went crazy, started farting all over the place, very powerful ones too as you can see.

THUNDER GIRL

I thought her only weapon was breathing dust particles in her opponent's eyes, temporary blinding them.

COMMISSIONER JORDAN

Apparently she just discovered a new one. I'm sorry, but I was forced to issue her a permit, plus a weekly salary.

MIGHTY MOE

A salary, you're kidding, right? Please tell me you're kidding. 

COMMISSIONER JORDAN

I had no choice don't you understand?

MIGHTY MOE

We've been doing this thankless job for the last five years and and the only thing we've gotten--

THUNDER GIRL

Mighty Moe, please, not now.

COMMISSIONER JORDAN

Believe me, the last thing I wanted to do was make a deal with that woman, but one more blast from her would've killed me. 

THUNDER GIRL

You did the right thing Commissioner. But don't worry, we'll stop that crazy chick.

COMMISSIONER JORDAN

Yes, I'm sure you will, why with  with your super ability to create thunder out of thin air and Mighty Moe's mind-power that can bend plastic, I'm confident you will be able to take her down. 

MIGHTY MOE

Yeah but it won't be easy with that powerful fart and new salary of hers.

THUNDER GIRL

Drop it Moe. 

(to Commissioner)

Do you have any idea where she could be right now Commissioner?

COMMISSIONER JORDAN

I'm afraid not. She could be anywhere.

MIGHTY MOE

Dang-snapit!That's what we were afraid of. Hey, was she wearing those sexy boots, that fly-looking cape and that mysterious mask?

Thunder Girl slaps Mighty Moe.

MIGHTY MOE

What'd you do that for? 

THUNDER GIRL

You don't need to know all that.

MIGHTY MOE

It's intel, we need to know what we're looking for. We don't want to end up tackling some musician by mistake now do we?

COMMISSIONER JORDAN

(suspicious)

Ahhh... Do you two have--

THUNDER GIRL

(defensive)

Have a thing going on between us? Of course not, we're professional super heroes.

COMMISSIONER JORDAN

I was going to ask if you two had a plan to catch her?

THUNDER GIRL

(embarrassed)

Oh. Well... no. Not yet.

MIGHTY MOE

I say we wait in his closet, and when she comes in to pick up her check, we jump out and grab her.

COMMISSIONER JORDAN

...I feel we should have a back-up plan, you know, just in case that closet door jams.

MIGHTY MOE

You've been having a problem with that door?

COMMISSIONER JORDAN

...Yes, yes I have. 

(beat)

It jams on occasions.

THUNDER GIRL

The last thing I want to do is bring down one of our own, but when she assaulted the Commissioner she crossed the line. Luscious The Black Tigress must answer to the law.

MIGHTY MOE

Yeah but she's pretty smart, even with our wonderful super powers it's not going to be easy apprehending her.

COMMISSIONER JORDAN

Whatever you two come up with, just be extra careful, that fart-blast is not to be taken lightly, it's not just a smoke screen it's like military-grade tear gas. 

MIGHTY MOE

Not to mention an uncontrollable laxative.

COMMISSIONER JORDAN

How did you know?

Beat.

MIGHTY MOE

(uncomfortable and embarrassed)

...Just guessing. 

COMMISSIONER JORDAN

Well you're right

(grunting)

You two don't have much time.

THUNDER GIRL

Right, I also feel we have to

(grunting)

move fast on this one.

THUNDER GIRL

Thunder Girl.

MIGHTY MOE

And Mighty Moe

MIGHTY MOE & THUNDER GIRL

To the Thunder Mobile!

THEME MUSIC BUMPER

INT./EXT. CAR - MOVING - DAY

MIGHTY MOE

So where do you think Luscious might be?

THUNDER GIRL

Your guess is good as mine.

MIGHTY MOE

Hey you think you can pull in that gas station, I need to... use the restroom real quick.

THUNDER GIRL

Right now?

MIGHTY MOE

Yes right now. That fart back there was pretty powerful.

THUNDER GIRL

Yeah you're right, I think I'd better go too.

EXT. GAS STATION - DAY (MOMENTS LATER)

THUNDER GIRL

Ooh-man, Luscious is no joke. I thought I was gonna do a quick in and out and boy...

MIGHTY MOE

I didn't know I had so much food in my colon.

THUNDER GIRL

Okay let's talk about something else, like how we're gonna stop Luscious The Black Tigress.

MIGHTY MOE

First we gotta find her.

Thump (lands on their car).

LUSCIOUS

Hello mighty friends.

MIGHTY MOE

Dang-snapit you just dented our Mighty mobile!

LUSCIOUS

First of all, if you're gonna be a super hero you can't go around saying dang-snapit or any derivative of it. 

MIGHTY MOE

What's wrong with dang-snapit? It's like my -----line.

LUSCIOUS

It sucks.

MIGHTY MOE

You've gotta lot of nerve lady--

THUNDER GIRL

She's right, it does suck.

MIGHTY MOE

Look, where not here to talk about my grammer, where here to take you down.

THUNDER GIRL

And he's right about that.

LUSCIOUS

Look, don't hate me because I'm a better negotiator than you two. You're a little teed off about that salary plan I got, right?

THUNDER GIRL

It's the way you went about it. You dang-near killed Commissioner Jordan.

MIGHTY MOE

And we're pissed about the salary plan!

THUNDER GIRL

Not to mention you're trying to push us out of a job.

Luscious laughs.

LUSCIOUS

I hate to tell you but the Commissioner has been playing you two for the last five years. Cops get paid, why shouldn't you?

There's a beat of silence.

MIGHTY MOE

Because...! Because with great power comes... 

(forgetting)

And you'll never have to...

(meekly)

say thank you.

Luscious laughs.

LUSCIOUS

Look I'm sorry how this all went down but I'm the new super guardian of this city now. Why don't you try Metropolis a few miles down.

Luscious laughs.

THUNDER GIRL

You crossed the line when you--

LUSCIOUS

I didn't lay a hand on that man, as a matter of fact I didn't even know I had this new super power I poses. 

LUSCIOUS

Look, I don't want to fight you two, and I'm sorry about your car hood, I was just trying to make a dramatic entrance, as a matter of fact I'll even get it fixed, with my new super salary!

Luscious laughs.

MIGHTY MOE

You laugh too damn much.

LUSCIOUS

Come on, I really didn't break any laws now did I, plus we already signed the contracts and everything, so let's be classy about this, because if this turns ugly believe me you'll regret it.

THUNDER GIRL

Is that a threat?

LUSCIOUS

Call it what you want, but if you lay a hand on me, you'll be assaulting an officer of the law, and that my dear is punishable to the fullest extent.

Luscious begins to walk off.

LUSCIOUS

Like I said, send me a bill for the hood. See ya.

Luscious leaves as fast as she came.

THUNDER GIRL

Damn, she's right, we have no recourse.

MIGHTY MOE

You mean we're... jobless?

FADE OUT.
