04x04 - Ninja Roll

Sensei Wu: Previously on Ninjago...

Cole: We're gonna fight each other.

Misako: Find my family.

Zane 2.0: You will always be a part of me.

P.I.X.A.L.: You're igenious.

Nya: Sensei Wu, I may have found the ninja.

Cole: (Grunts)

Master Chen: Winner! Loser!

Cole: (Screams)

Sensei Wu: Episode 38 - Ninja Roll.

Master Chen: Skylor, Master of Amber, versus Jacob, Master of Sound. Fight! Fight!

Skylor: Eneie, meenie, minie, mo, catch a Jade Blade by its toe!

Jacob: (Grunts)

Sensei Garmadon: The Master of Sound's gotten stronger since the last time I saw him.

Jacob: (Grunting)

Kai: Excuse me. Excuse me. Uh, don't mean to block your view. Just passing through. Sorry, all of these temples look the same. Did I miss anything?

Jay: Argh. By the looks of it, you din't miss much.

Jacob: (Grunting)

Jay: Maybe we shouldn't be sitting together. I mean, the more they think we're a team, the bigger targets we put on ourselves.

Lloyd: Don't say that, we are a team. Sure we just lost Cole and still can't find Zane, but we're a team. Just smaller. All the more reason to stick together.

Kai: Skylor's fighting?

Sensei Garmadon: What has him so excited?

Jay: He had a crush on her until he found out they might be related.

Sensei Garmadon: Her element isn't fire. She's the Master of Amber, power of absorption. She can emulate the power of anyone she's touched.

Kai: You're telling me we're not related?

Jay: Oh, noy. Here we go again.

Jacob: (Grunting)

Skylor: (Snickers)

Jacob: (Grunting)

Ninjas: (Cheering)

Kai: Yes! Go, Skylor!

Master Chen: Winner! And loser.

Jacob: (Screaming)

Master Chen: I hope the Tournament of Elements has entertained you as much as it has me. To thank you, I wanted to give everyone jewels and untold shiny things. But then in yesterday's battle, Master Jay and Cole tried to undermine me by teaming up and refusing to fight each other. And that made me very upset. For their insubordination, all of your fancy quarters will be taken away, and tonight everyone must sleep together in the chow house. This is all. Thank you, you can go.

Ash: (Grunts)

Kai: Nice one, Jay.

Jay: Whoa, easy, Romeo.

Lloyd: Don't worry about them. We aren't here to make friends, just to save ours.

Sensei Garmadon: Yes, but your exclusion of others has only made enemies. Beware how you treat those around you, for they will treat you the same.

Cole: You can take my clothes and power, but you'll never take my super strength. (Grunting) All right, so you get that too. You're letting me go?

Clouse: Of course not. Your presence is required in the factory.

Cole: The factory? Look me up for all I care. I'm never gonna lift a finger for you, you despicable-- Aah! A noodle factory? Ha! Why din't you say so? Ha-ha-ha. This is my kind of place. Look, that's how they make the noodles. Oh, and that's the dumpling machine. And is that how you make fortune cookies? (Laughs) You know there's a fortune inside those, right?

Clouse: There's only one rule" No eating the merchandise.

Cole: No eating the merchandise? How cruel can this place be! You're evil!

Anacondrai Soldier: Mm. Yummy.

Karloff: Don't worry. After while, not so bad. Since you knew, I show you how to chop noodles.

Worker: Ugh.

Karloff: Not bad one. See? Chop. Now don't make trouble.

Jacob: Well, I for one don't like following rules. The minute you tell me the coast is clear, I'm busting out of here.

Karloff: Even if you get past the guards, Mr. Blind Guy, there's still the labyrinth, guarded by big snake.

Jacob: My name's not Mr. Blind Guy. It's Jacob. And you may have already lost hope, but not me and not my buddy Cole here. Am I right?

Cole: Actually, I'm on your left.

Jacob: Oh. Heh. Hey, you moved on me. Heh. Sneaky ninja.

Sensei Wu: And you say the noodle trucks disappear at night. But where do they go?

Nya: That's what I'm trying to figure out. Perhaps if I follow them, they can lead me to more answers. I'll report more when I uncover more. Initiate replicate software. You're not the only one who can disappear.

Darreth: What do you mean he's discontinued the Puffy Potsticker? They were my favorite. Do you even know who you're dealing with?

Manager: Yes, Master Darreth. If you have a problem, take it up with them.

Darreth: Wait! Come back! I need my Puffy Potsticker!

All: (Snoring)

Lloyd: (Sighs)

Jay: Couldn't sleep either?

Kai: Not when we still have to get Zane and Cole back.

Lloyd: (Grunts) Speaking of backs, these new beds are the worst. All right, let's do--

Kai: Quick, back in bed.

Clouse: Good morning, fighters. Oh, that's right, it's the middle of the night.

Lloyd: Hey, what are you doing?

Jay: Do you know what time it is?

Kai: Roller Skates? Whoa, aah! Ugh. Thanks.

Lloyd: Let me guess, another one of Chen's impromptu battles?

Jay: Oh, roller skates. I love roller skates! We should be getting used to this by now. Did I ever mention I once placed first in the Mother-Son Skate-Off. Heh, heh. I should have never admitted that.

Mr. Pale: Weirdo.

Clouse: Master Chen wants everyone in the Royal Arena. I wouldn't be late if I were you.

Skylor: If most of us have already thought, why are we all in skates?

Clouse: Only two of you will be fighting, but the rest of you will have a chance to affect the outcome.

Griffin Turner: Who's fighting? Tell us now.

Clouse: The Green Ninja versus Master of Form.

All: (Chattering)

Lloyd: Master of Form? Who's that?

Kai: You haven't heard? I hear she can look like anyone. She'd be right under your nose, and by the time you figure it out, she's a;ready discovered all your weaknesses, then it's game over. But you're the Green Ninja what weakness could you have?

Lloyd: Ugh. Aside from the sore back, not many.

Kai: Thanks.

Jay: (Cheering)

Kai: Skates.

Lloyd: Kai?

Kai: Why did it have to be skates? (Grunts)

Camille: (Snickering) Watch your back, Green Ninja.

Anacandrai Soldier: (Bleching)

Karloff: Eh... Make noodles, not trouble.

Cole: Aah--

Jacob: Hey! Not one of you could've warned me?

Cole: (Grunts)

Clouse: Make an example of him. Take him to feed my serpent.

Jacob: (Grunting) Hey, hey!

Cole: Feed his serpent? He doesn't mean--?

Karloff: (Grunts) Karloff not make trouble. Karloff make noodle.

Cole: (Grunts) I'm so not into this dumpling dump after all.

Lloyd: I don't like the look of this.

Kai: Don't worry, we got your back. Aah! Ugh! (Groans)

Master Chen: Welcome to my favorite event. Thunderblade!

Griffin Turner: Hey, I know this game. It's just like--

Master Chen: No, it's not like that! This is my game, I made it up! Fully original! A Jade Blade for you, Lloyd, Master of Power. And another for Camille, Master of Form. Where--? Where are you? Oh, there you are, Ha, ha. Rules are simple. Each lap you complete with your blade in possession, a point. Most points before time expires, you win.

Griffin Turner: Whoa, whoa, whoa. What about us? Are we supposed to just stand here?

Master Chen: You get to help anyone you wish, or hurt for that matter. You're free to choose sides. I'm not a dictator.

Lloyd: What was that you said about us having targets on our backs?

Kai: Don't worry, we're still a team-- (Groans)

Jay: (Sighs) I gotta be honest. This doesn't look good.

Master Chen: Lloyd, Master of Power versus Camille, Master of Form! Most laps with their Jade Blade When time runs out wins, loser is out. Thunderbladers on your mark, get set, good luck to everyone. Buut mostly Camille because we all want the Green Ninja out. Now go! Oh, how about some spectator ambiance?

Jay: It's us against the world, Kai. If Lloyd has any chance of moving forward in the tournament, it's up to you and me.

Skylor: Lloyd's your greatest competition. If he loses today, what's left to stand in your way from winning at all?

Kai: I'd never think of it.

Skylor: Maybe you should.

Kai: (Yelps)

People: (Laughing)

Jay: We have to gibe him room.

Kai: And just how are we supposed to do that?

Jay: I got an idea. Don't touch anyone.

Kai: When who am I suppose to hold onto?

Lloyd: Thanks.

Kai: Sorry. (Grunting)

Anacondrai Soldiers: (Laughing)

Kai: Use your power!

Lloyd: On roller skates? You crazy? I'd never stay on the track!

Camille: (Laughing)

Jay: You're supposed to be helping, not hurting his chances.

Kai: Thanks for the tip, but I can't skate!


Nya: Nothing unusual to see here. Just a technologically advanced mobile base camouflaged as a noodle truck. (Screams)

Darreth: (Pants) I beg of you, you gotta tell Master Chen not to give up on the Puffy Potstickers.

Nya: (Sighs)

Darreth: Huh? Nya? When did you start slinging noodles?

Nya: Quiet. You're gonna blow my cover.

Darreth: Cover? Oh, my gosh, you're on a mission. And why is your truck tripping me out? (Yelps) Far out. Aah! But wait a minute. I don't see any noodles.

Nya: It's not a noodle truck. It's my only hope of finding the ninja.

Darreth: The ninja have gone missing? Sounds like a job for--

Nya: No, it's not. You're not coming with me.

Darreth: Looks like you don't have a choice.

Nya: Somehow, I know I'm gonna regret this.

Master Chen: Thunderblade never fails to deliver. Did you know I hold the record with a hundred points? Clouse can attest. Tell him, Clouse.

Clouse: You were born with skates on, master.

Master Chen: True story.

Sensei Garmadon: True story, hmph. Just like all of his far-fetched endeavors.

Clouse: There was a time when you were quite comfortable with lying. It worked on Misako,, didn't it?

Master Chen: Button, button, I love buttons. Aha! Let's even the playing field, shall we?

Kai: (Yelping, Grunts)

Anacondrai Soldiers: (laughing)

Jay: Grab my hand! I'll whip you. (Grunting)

Camille: (Laughing) Ah. His back is hurting him. Shadow, strike his back.

Jay: Wait, where'd the Master of Shadow go?

Lloyd: (Groans)

Shadow: (Laughing) (Grunts)

Lloyd: You didn't learn that in your Mother-Son Skate-Off, did you?

Jay: It was a fierce competition, Lloyd, and this isn't the time to judge. It's the time to skate faster.

Kai: (Grunts)

Griffin Turner: (Grunting)

Jay: Ha, ha! Watch out for that poison cloud!

Kai: (Groans) Thanks for the warning.

Master Chen: Release the buggy!

Jay: Look out, Lloyd!

Lloyd: (Grunts)

Camille: (Laughing)

Lloyd: She has the lead and she gets a lift? I know Chen want me out, but this is getting ridiculous!

Jay: Sorry, Tox. Must be my allergies kicking in.

Tox: (Grunting)

Griffin Turner: Check this out.

Ash: Gotcha.

Jay: (Whimpering) (Screams) (Grunting) We are so not loved.

Skylor: You're very convincing. In no time, Lloyd will be out.

Lloyd: This did wonders for my back, though.

Skylor: And hell never suspect.

Kai: Argh! That's it! I may not be ab;e to skate, but that doesn't mean I can't help. Aah! (Grunting)

Jay: Ha, ha!

All: Oh!

Jay: Nice, Kai! Now you're cooking with fire!

Kai: (Grunts)

Jay: I got it, you want it! Come and get it! Come and get it!

All: (Grunting)

Skylor: What are you doing? We need Lloyd out.

Kai: We need to stick together. I'm a ninja.

Skylor: Ha! That's right, and the rest of us aren't. I should've known better.

Jay: Lloyd's closing the gap, but the clock's against us.

Kai: So is everyone else. Garmadon's right, the more we exclude everyone, the more they gang up on us.

Jay: What are you saying?

Kai: I'm saying, why don't we tell them about Chen? If others knew what this tournament was really about, maybe they'd help us.

Jay: Argh. Worth a try, but time's running out and Lloyd's got a lot of ground to make up.

Camille: Give me! I've got a job to finish.

Skylor: (Gasps) Are you trying to take me out too?

Kai: No, you're right. We aren't all ninja, but Chen's the real enemy. He doesn't care about who wins. He only wants to steal our powers so that he can perform some sort of spell.

Camille: (Grunts)

Mr. Pale: A spell? What kind of spell?

Kai: I don't know, but we have to stay in the tournament to find out.

Jay: This isn't about Lloyd winning. It's about all of us stopping Chen.

Griffin Turner: And why are you telling me this now?

Lloyd: Because it's never too late to do the right thing.

Neuro: (Grunts) He's telling the truth. I know.

Jay: Then why you have you now decided to help?

Neuro: I'd rather be on the winning team. Then let's win this thing!

Kai: (Screams)

Camille: (Hisses)

Lloyd: (Panting)

Kai: Need a lift?

Lloyd: Ugh. You took the buggy.

Kai: We took the buggy. Take the wheel!

Griffin Turner: Cut the green guy some slack.

Master Chen: (Grunting) We don't have to keep fighting each other. We can all win.

Camille: All of us?

Lloyd: United. (Screams)

Camille: (Laughs) Only one can remain.

Lloyd: (Grunts)

Master Chen: Lloyd might win. Do something!

Clouse: Silicore--

Sensei Garmadon: (Grunts)

Anacondrai Soldier: (Grunts)

Kai: He's rigging the match. I'll stop him--

Skylor: Let me.

Anacondrai Soldier: (Grunts) (Grunting)

Camille: (Grunts)

Master Chen: (Laughing)

Lloyd: Whoa!

Camille: Ugh!

Lloyd: (Grunts)

Camille: (Grunts)

Camille and Lloyd: (Panting)

Camille: Huh?

Jay: She doesn't have her blade!

Kai: Lloyd won!

Skylor: Oops, I almost forgot.

Sensei Garmadon: Look at that, he broke your record.

Master Chen: No. No! No! He cheated! Lloyd loses!

Griffin Turner: No way, Lloyd won fair and square. You were the one who cheated.

Master Chen: My tournament. My rules.

M. Pale: And just what rules are those? If Lloyd's out, then so am I.

Kai: Me too.

Jay: And three me.

Skylor: If you kick us all out, what kind of tournament will you have then?

Master Chen: (Grunting) Fine, have it your way. Form loses.

Camille: (Screaming)

All: (Cheering)

Jay: All right! Whoo! Ha-ha-ha.

Kai: We won! Yeah!

Skylor: If you what you say is true, you are playing a dangerous game. Chen will find other ways to get you out the tournament.

Kai: Which is why we'll need all the friends we can get. There's always hope.

Zane 2.0: I don't know, P.I.X.A.L. But I sense these chains are unbreakable.

Karloff: What are you doing? Don't make trouble.

Cole: Zane. Is that you?

Sumo Zumo: What's the hold up?

Karloff: One second. Karloff tie shoe.

Cole: Heh. You're alive! And you're silver?

Zane 2.0: Titanium. Cole, you look white.

Cole: (Laughs) Boy, it's good to see you! Look at that, you look brand-new.

Sumo Zumo: Tie shoe? What shoe?

Cole: Hold tight, lugnut, I'm getting you out of here. I'm getting us both out of here. That's a promise.

Sumo Zumo: Where is Cole?

Cole: Right here. Keep it real, big guy. Looks like you've seen a ghost. From here on out, Karloff, I'm making more than noodles. I'm making trouble. Chen can try his best be split up our team, but he's about to find out what happens when we put ourselves back together.
